    With only 15 SP missions and some major improvements, that looks more like a half-completed game on a full release for $19.99 USD. The sale price at 20% off the regular price tag is a decent deal. Due to high system requirements, I won't be playing that game until I get a new PC.

    https://steamcommunity.com/games/686260/announcements/detail/1719699119618206509 Oh joy, it's just the EArly Access version with a few voiceovers and 5 new campaign missions. Woo.
  6. There is no way you can read it and see his disagreement on that. He said it in an official capacity, so that was his official standpoint. I mean it's logical, firing is more expensive than convincing someone to quit on their own.
  7. Major names in major companies don't get fired, they "choose to move on." Basically they are blackmailed, leaving them with one and only one option; to quit. That's simply how it works in the business world.

    Released! Haven't played since January. Must have a look and see how it plays now
  9. In an ironic twist of fate: http://ca.ign.com/articles/2018/08/14/ea-chief-design-officer-patrick-soderlund-leaves-company I think it was Andrew Wilson that wanted to continue in the usual EA direction and Patrick Soderlund disagreed, thus leaving. The "People make a mistake of saying 'this is what you really want'", I feel, is just him repeating Wilson's wording and having to defend his company's line, which has been mistakingly attributed to him (He does say "For us" before spewing out that line). The line was also cut out from the rest of his sentence, thus removing the appropriate context. It's possible the person who wrote the article did that on purpose, to make it seem like Patrick and EA think we're idiots. It's just too vague and lacking enough context to be sure of Patrick's original intentions when he said that. It's possible the sentence was also deformed and the wording changed. We have no transcript to prove those are Patrick's exact words. I really suspect he was just spewing out what Wilson and the staff in charge of EA (and/or the biggest investors) wanted him to. It also explains why Wilson stated they wanted to continue Lootboxes when Soderlund seemed to imply that they weren't going to or that it wasn't a good decision to continue in that manner. Look at the official statement, too: "Today we are announcing that Patrick Söderlund has made the decision to move on from EA." Interesting wording, no? He made the decision himself, he wasn't fired. "Move on", I don't know what to say, except that it doesn't sound happy. It sounds like they're implying something negative, that they're unhappy with him leaving or as if he disagreed with them and that's why he left, instead of staying and getting into a conflict. They do pick up the pace afterwards in the press release, however...

  11. I don't see anything that says C&C fans didn't know what they wanted
  12. Guessing you didn't see the niche gamer link. Well, here, can't get more direct than EA's website: https://www.ea.com/en-ca/news/an-update-on-our-creative-leadership
  13. Links to the fixes are down. I still have my local copy. Yuri's Revenge is still broken, menus and buttons are missing. It launches and goes to the main screen but I can't see anything to click on.
  14. So there is no source then.

    TFD 1.04 Dev Update (12/05/2012)

    I still check this every once in a while to see if anyone updates The First Decade. I don't plan on ever buying the games from Origin or Steam. I also don't play any of the newer releases. Hopefully each one will continue to be maintained for Windows 10 if conflicts occur. I need to try reinstalling my games after a bit.
  16. You can have as much sauce as you like, sir.
  17. Can I have sauce on that?
  18. Well at least part of the cancer has left EA: https://nichegamer.com/2018/08/14/patrick-soderlund-leaves-electronic-arts/ Remembering that this is the jackass saying that C&C fans didn't know what they wanted....good fucking riddance.

    Your System Specs - Post them here

    This is the best SSD deal so far, a 960 GB SSD for $127 USD: https://www.pcgamer.com/grab-a-960gb-solid-state-drive-for-only-dollar127 While SSD prices continue to drop (except graphic cards and physical RAM) I am already saving money for November's Black Friday hoping that a 1 TB SSD goes less than $100 USD and maybe a 500 GB SSD for less than $60 USD.

    AMD & Nvidia Desktop Graphics Cards Thread

    Is Nvidia is trying to become Apple, or the Lamborghini of video cards? Who would try going for an massive overkill 48 GB GDDR6 VRAM video card worth $10k USD? It's also the world's first ray tracing GPU (which I had no clue what that feature does). Too bad Nvidia wasn't going for HBM2 VRAM for the Quadro series because that would have been the main part of speed bandwidth. The Titan V already uses HBM2 VRAM.

    Does anyone here invest in Bitcoin?

    Huh, that reminds me of something I read somewhere. Hmm, now who was it and where did they say it... Oh, that's right!

    Desktop CPU Thread

    It took 8 years for Intel to get from a 4-core CPU to a 10-core for consumers between 2008 and 2016. Somewhere in that period Intel created a Xeon Phi (for special servers and supercomputers) capable of running 58-72 core CPUs between 2012 to 2016. After that, it took AMD 18 months to get from a 8-core to a 32-core CPU for businesses and consumers. If you think a 16-core CPU is already overkill for multitasking, wait until you see the newly released 32-core CPU called the AMD Ryzen Threadripper 2990WX. It runs at 3.0 ghz base clock to a 4.2 ghz boost clock with 32 CPU cores and a usage of 250 watt power. https://www.pcgamer.com/amds-32-core-ryzen-threadripper-2990wx-cpu-is-now-available and https://www.pcworld.com/article/3296378/components-processors/2nd-gen-threadripper-review-amds-32-core-cpu-is-insanely-fast.html Coming up next year, a 64-core CPU by AMD for Epyc and possibly soon after for Ryzen: https://techviral.net/amd-launch-monster-7nm-cpu-64-cores
