@brunorr: I get jokes.
I played the open beta on my new PC. My specs are: CPU: i7 6700k @ 4.0GHz, RAM: 32GB DDR4, and GPU: EVGA GTX 1070 8GB SC.Everything maxed at 1080p (with DX12 enabled) I averaged between 90-120fps.Went back to BF4 maxed and I'm averaging 80-90fps. Definitely not gonna have an issue.
@spartanx169x: I hate arguing with people like you, because you make up these goalposts that people will never surpass to match your experience, so you win by default (i.e. "I've been around the world literally 5 times, when you have then we will talk again"). Oh yeah? Well I've been dealing with depression for close to 20 years, and I'll be the first to tell you there's nothing particularly wrong with my life and even when things are going great, my mental state doesn't necessarily reflect that.
So you've got time to give sympathy to starving children because that's something you can physically see but not to people fighting unseen demons everyday? I guess somebody really has to LOOK like they have cancer before you'd care. Women who are victims of sexual assault and abuse still try to get up and do their best to work through what's going on in their heads every day. Just because someone isn't homeless or actively dying doesn't mean they're fine. The world is not binary. There are varying levels of triumph and tragedy. Someone becoming a manager at their job doesn't stop being great just because someone else started their own company. Likewise, somebody struggling with mental health isn't "fine" just because somebody else deals with physical struggles.
So because you've seen starving children you're an authority on suffering but because you can't relate to someone else's suffering they should get over it?
GTFOH with that noise.
@spartanx169x: Yeah...that's not how depression works. Contrary to popular belief, most people who are miserable or hate their life don't choose those things.
@mdinger: Having played / owning Dead By Daylight, I'd say this one looks to have more mechanics at play. From being able to use different things to distract Jason (like radios and tricking him into thinking you've gone out a window) it seems like there's more going on. Hopefully it has a better launch than Dead By Daylight.Sidenote, I loved Evolve (still play on PC after buying initially on PS4). I think the asymmetric or MP only games can work, they just need to be priced accordingly. If Evolve had launched at $30-40 I think it would've gone over way better. Left 4 Dead worked because it technically had campaigns and they could be played co-op against AI or be made into a competitive game.
@sirgreendown: I was still looking at monitors and I didn't feel like dropping the additional money on one at the time. That's my last big upgrade (until I replace the 1070 with a 1080Ti when they release).The new build was kind of a blessing and a curse. I had wanted to it for years, but never had the money. Then I had to do it because the PSU and mobo died in my old computer (an off-the-shelf Dell with upgrades). So I bit the bullet and finally built the PC I had wanted. No regrets.
Just built my first PC a few months back with no experience. As long as you understand what the parts do and where they go, it isn't that hard. The only thing that tripped me up were the jumpers for the power button.I spent around $1600. GTX 1070 with an i7-6700 Skylake @ 4.0GHz and 32GB of DDR4 RAM. Maxes everything at 1080p and I get between 100-150fps on most demanding games. Next I'm gonna upgrade my monitor to a 1440p 144Hz G-Sync. Loving it so far.
This will be my first beta for a Battlefield game on my new PC. Should be able to max it no problem. Looking forward to it. ;)
ITT: People pissed at people who saw the movie for giving it poor reviews when they themselves haven't seen it AND people who think you need to be a comic book historian in order to properly review a superhero movie.Here's the thing: The Marvel movies get better reviews because they are typically better movies. A good superhero movie (or any movie derived from any other media source be it books or television) should make you WANT to learn more about it. I hadn't read much Deadpool, but after watching the movie I immediately went out and bought some graphic novels. If you have to explain things to your friend with 20 minutes of exposition to understand why they should care about these characters, then the movie hasn't done its job. As some have noted, this is the first batch of movies trying to establish DC Universe as its own thing. Marvel has already gone through their growing pains and had their string of bad movies (Daredevil and Elektra, anyone?).I saw Suicide Squad last night. There were things I liked and thought worked. There was a lot that didn't. The Avengers work because they're ensemble movies about characters who've been established through individual movies. Meanwhile, Suicide Squad jumps in with, "Hey, here are all these characters you don't necessarily know or care about and about 5 minutes of exposition each. Enjoy!" That, and how they felt the need to drive the point home that these are "bad guys." We get it. But after the third time of someone saying, "Don't forget: We're the bad guys" I just thought, "If you had more material and a better introduction going into this, you wouldn't need to keep telling us that."The movie starts off well enough, but is hurt by its poor pacing where it jumps back and forth with little explanation. Even if you're familiar with the characters it's done in a way that's confusing. Some of the dialogue and writing is just weak. The movie feels rushed. It feels like what happens when someone throws a big budget behind something and they're so excited that they get started immediately but don't do the necessary homework to make sure things are organized.I want to like Suicide Squad. I really do. I loved Batman: The Animated Series and the Burton and Nolan movies and the Arkham games, but I also think those are all places where some of these characters were portrayed better.
@Smith7010: Gladly. The original poster lacks direction. It's not that it's too chaotic. It's that it's chaotic for the sake of being chaotic. The use of gradients in the logo seems kinda amateurish, like someone just figured out how to use gradients in Photoshop or Illustrator. The black stroke used around every character implies they were going for a "comic style" look, but contrasted with the fact they're actual pictures and not illustrated it doesn't make sense. They've got like 3 or 4 different styles or approaches they're going for here and they just don't work together.The IMAX poster is cohesive though. It's clean. No strokes, gradients, or cheap and simple Photoshop effects used. Plus, there's an implied meaning there. While the first poster was trying to mimic an atom bomb explosion in its shape, it fails to get that across immediately. Here, we have a bowl of cereal filled with marshmallows shaped to represent the different "serial" killers. The implied message being, "These guys are a big bowl of crazy." There's a clear visual hierarchy to the poster. The top billing. The movie name. When it comes out. And that you can see it in IMAX 3D. There you go. All your information creatively presented in an easy to read and visually informative poster.My only critique of the IMAX poster is that they should've found a way to make Viola Davis's name pop more as it gets lost in the shadow of the spoon.
