  1. My guess is we'll get an update once they've patched WM2 a couple of times. I think this is their planned release schedule, not simply a delay. They'll wait until WM2 is stable so they don't have to do updates for the DVD more than once or twice.
  2. Most people here have probably already seen this, but I missed it on the Obsidian news page.
  3. Create a throwaway Yahoo email account, use it to create a throwaway facebook and twitter account. Takes 5 minutes and you have your games.
  4. PC Gamer is giving away 5 free Steam games at the moment. I don't know any of the games though. Skyborn, 8-bit Boy, Ben There, Dan That, Time Gentlemen, Please and Bionic Dues. http://www.pcgamer.com/free-steam-key-encore-giveaway-five-games-up-for-grabs/
  5. I mean, the graphics card is far and away the most important component when it comes to gaming. The truth is that CPU performance, in terms of raw horsepower, has seriously stagnated over the last half decade+. Much of the problem comes down to AMD's complete and utter inability to compete in the mid-high end desktop sector (aka The Bulldozer Botch), so Intel has has zero impetus to push IPC gains and has instead concentrated almost fully on energy efficiency. The difference in raw horsepower between an i5 or i7 from 4 generations ago and a brand spanking new i5 or i7 is shockingly small. It actually has almost nothing to do with AMD or Intel, and is simply a result of current technology not being able to meet the desire for higher clock speeds. It will be at least a decade before new technologies such as nano tubes and graphene are able to be implemented. In the intervening years I expect to see other solutions, such as multi processor motherboards, becoming more widespread. There is also little need for higher clock speeds until other pc technologies catch up. Most pc aren't restrained by their cpu's, but by things such as RAM and HDDs. These technologies need to catch up to cpu technology.
  6. What motherboard are you using?
  7. I don't have 2.0 yet, still waiting for the dvd patch, but from what I have read there should be a new icon on each character's ability bar that lets you toggle each NPC on/off individually. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=I0GvsA6exuY
  8. Though it's a game I'm not at all excited about, I know some regulars here are so this will be of interest. XCOM 2 delayed until Feb 2016. http://www.pcgamer.com/xcom-2-is-delayed-until-february/
  9. This is the reply I received from OE support concerning the expansion and the 2.0 update: HI there, mute688! Thanks for reaching out to us! We are currently figuring out how we'll get the expansion up and update 2.0 should be going up by the end of the week! If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask! Best, -Mikey Dowling Community Support Manager Obsidian Entertainment
  10. 2.0 should be up on the download page by the end of the week, and they are looking at methods to get the expansion out to physical disk owners.
  11. I might have one. I'm waiting to see if they are releasing the expansion as a download for the physical disk version. If they do, I can give you my key. I don't think they will do that I would love to have that as well, but unfortunately, I completely missed that expansion was available as an add-on Just got a reply from Mikey Dowling that 2.0 should be on the download page by the end of the week, and they are currently working on how best to deliver the expansion for physical disk owners. I'm assuming they're looking at things like possibly having an activation key generated on your account page similar to the way you generate a GoG or steam key. Once they give official confirmation, leo1984, I'll pm you the GoG key for The White March.
  12. Are there any plans to release 2.0 and the expansion for the boxed physical version of PoE? The download page only has 1.06 patch and no expansion.
  13. I might have one. I'm waiting to see if they are releasing the expansion as a download for the physical disk version. If they do, I can give you my key.
  14. I would also like an answer to this. Also, where is the download page for the physical copy patches? I think I've clicked every single menu link on the Obsidian website and found nothing. Edit: Okay, found a link to the patch download page ( no 2.0 though ) but it would be nice to have a link on the PoE homepage.
