    Forged Battalion

    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.

    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.

    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

    Does anyone here invest in Bitcoin?

    This is the longest article I have read in a long time, especially coming from PC Magazine. Venezuela is now depending on cryptocurrency to save their own country despite ridiculous inflation values, debt and sanctions: https://www.pcmag.com/feature/362486/in-venezuela-cryptocurrency-is-an-oppressor-and-a-lifeline
  7. Here's another discussion thread based on PC Gamer's recent Q&A article. For mine, well there are lots of games with terrible looks and values and "what the hell" moments but I picked the worst two. The two games I hated every minute of it despite finishing them are Red Alert 3 Uprising and C&C4 Tiberian Twilight. Both are flawed in such terrible ways.... cartoonish style graphics, gameplay, decent story, rushed development, poor value, and missing other features that should have been there.
  8. Just asking. I am just wondering if anyone has done this on an SSD (solid state drive) even with a fast CPU. The C&C3 Mod SDK compiler I am talking about refers to Bibber's Modified RA3 Mod Buildstudio.
  9. I can see that EA wants to gamble and fail themselves, and wants the world to know that they are still claiming to be the "worst of the worst". Worst Company in America? I am about to call it Worst Company on Earth. They are one step away to be as terrible as The Trump Organization when it comes to greed and politics.

    Now Playing - Music

    This movie soundtrack is one of the finest since Skyfall and Spectre, and some are saying the score sounds similar to the Dark Knight trilogy. Composed by Lorne Bafle, the best music comes at 20:48 and 1:34:44.

    The Ultimate Free-to-Play PC Games List

    I also would like to mention that MechCommander has a major update from last year. A fully modded version of MCG combined with other fan-made add-ons are now compiled as one huge game. It's called MechCommander Gold: Darkest Hours: http://www.nogutsnogalaxy.net/forum/index.php?topic=4427.0 It's free though, with over 130 campaign missions, over 50 solo missions and over 50 multiplayer maps.
