  1. Baldur's Gate III performed as expected at The Game Awards and walked away with six awards out of nine nominations including Game of the Year. Everything they won: Players' Voice Best Multiplayer Game Best RPG Best Community Support Best Performance (Neil Newbon) Game of the Year
  2. I'm not sure I would go that far. Killing Floor 2 was originally made by Tripwire Interactive and Hardsuit Labs seems, by all accounts, to have only been responsible for the PS4 port of the game.
  3. I can't say that I have run into any performance issues or major bugs on any of my Baldur's Gate III runs thus far - that said, I also don't have Starfield to compare it to given that I'm a bit tired of the Bethesda formula at this point and probably wont pick-up the game until it's on a significant sale. I've been increasingly less impressed by each of their recent releases in-turn and don't expect this game to break the trend.
  4. My position at work might be being eliminated due to the department shifting around but I have an interview for a replacement in the same organization on Thursday and another at an external one in the works (the latter would actually be several steps higher and a decent pay raise so I'm honestly more interested in that, although it also depends on who gives me what offer when). So, while the prospect of possibly being temporarily jobless isn't ideal, things could be worse given the situation and I'm also in a field that is growing rather than shrinking despite the questionable economy and job market.
  5. My initial bard, on the left, and my current 'Durge' on the right... Having spent entirety too many hours in Early Access and even more with the final game... I like it. Is it a perfect game? No, but it's also much better than I was expecting and a fun D&D romp.
  6. It looks like additional content is likely.
  7. The examples that immediately come to mind are Shadows of Undrentide and Hordes of the Underdark as both are generally considered better than the original Neverwinter Nights campaign and, likewise, Mask of the Betrayer and Storm of Zehir are generally considered better than base Neverwinter Nights II. And, shifting genera, both War of the Chosen and Enemy Within were generally considered better than XCOM II and XCOM respectively. The Witcher III: Blood and Wine could also be claimed to be better than the base game, as could The Shivering Isles for Oblivion and both Tribunal and Bloodmoon for Morrowind. I'm sure there are probably more, but it certainly seems within the realm of possibility that an expansion could meet or exceed the original game (particularly in the CRPG market).
  8. I doubt it, the GeForce is their gaming line and they don't know what end-users are doing with the cards (someone might be gaming, another rendering, and another mining - but they're all using the consumer gaming product line).
  9. Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition - I'd forgotten how *massive* this game feels and it's also surprising how well it's held-up over the years.
  10. But that would require congress both be useful and competent... So the likelihood of that actually passing seems essentially nonexistent even if the votes were there.
  11. Russian communications are insecure due to a fairly significant design flaw in their communication network.
  12. Is there any way to change my profile name? The hanging 'e' is bugging me but if not then that's perfectly understandable.
  13. That's unfortunate. Currently I generally start work around 11:00 give or take although some days have to start earlier if there is a morning meeting or something that has to be done early. But that's also because I can mostly work from home and independently so unless I have to go into the office I can set my own hours/schedule (that sometimes involves staying up until the wee hours of the morning fixing security vulnerabilities so things even out). Today was an on-site day because I needed to oversee the move of a petabyte server to one of the datacenters and I'd forgotten how heavy spinning rust can be when massed in one place.
