I'm not convinced this map is going to be better than Sapienza, Paris, Marrakesh, etc. It feels like the maps have become less open starting with the hotel and more elite guards all over the place, making "a world of assassination" become more of "a straight line of assassination." This map sounds like another heavily guarded private compound that will be nearly impossible to pull of some the cool stuff we did in the first half of the game.
@turboman@hassun You can kind of get away with carrying around the sniper rifle if you pick a guard uniform and the challenges for Sniper Assassin don't require suit only. That said it would be convenient if you could carry heavy weapons out of the gate. I pray they don't restrict it to guns and let you take whatever you want like explosives, poisons, swords, the battleaxe, and pretty much all the gadgets. I imagine they might force the suit case to take up two slots or maybe it will negate the pickup point. It would be pretty cool if the suit case also avoided detection during frisks but that may be unlikely.
Definitely good news. I wouldn't particularly call it amazing or incredible. Civ IV had this as someone said. I'm not buying into the whole stripped down vanilla game that then becomes the real Civilization by the end of all the DLCs, preorder bonuses, and expansions. They need to just make the base game have everything good from the previous Civ games, then dedicated the DLCs to new ideas and concepts.
@dstopia@retris Is it possible dstopia meant multiple leaders like the way Paradox games (EUIV, Stellaris) handles it? If so, I agree that it would be awesome if they deepened the government system. Having new leaders take on different traits based on popularity, prior decisions, and the like would be amazing.
Reviews are complete trash now a days. They once were used to determine first and foremost what a game or product was, what it did, and what it could do. The more people were let on to the internet the trashier it became. I guess it shows what the masses of the world are to us as a whole.
Coin, lockpick, and breaching charges at the pickup location for doors with keycards. The coin is the one thing you can change out since you find plenty of things to cause diversions within the level itself.
Now I'm curious; is there a major difference between GPUs when it comes down to water cooling? I'm talking about core clock speeds vs. boost speeds. Some manufacturers will state that their card has a higher core clock than a reference card but that's because of their cooling setup, right? They aren't reverse engineering the card to actually make it have better speeds because it's all based on temperature and power consumption, right? So if I were looking to purchase a GTX 1080 for example, it wouldn't matter if I chose a $620 custom GTX 1080 vs a $680, strictly in terms of performance, not bonuses like dual bios, etc., because I am going to rip that cooler off and place a liquid cooling block on it?
I am aware that dimensions of water/liquid cooling blocks are an additional factor.
@tariqari Firstly you'll need the correct sized motherboard for your case. If you've got a full tower or mid tower this is easy as they'll accept many of the smaller sizes. If you've got one of those spiffy new small cases you'll need the requisite sized MB.
Do you plan on overclocking? A basic board will have very basic overclocking capabilities.
Crossfire or SLI perhaps? Even if you're only thinking about it for the future, it'd be handy to have a MB that's capable of one or both.
Other than that, there are things like the number of RAM slots, fan headers, PCI (and how they're arranged) and SATA ports etc.
Right now I don't have anything but I've been looking into both ITX and ATX. I like the relative portability of ITX, but I would consider doing SLI in the future. I don't know much about overclocking so I will probably just be using default settings with new hardware. Basically where I'm at right now is deciding between the 1070 and 1080. I'm definitely going to be putting only SSDs in. I plan on doing high end gaming, video editing, and 3d modeling/animation. Is all of that realistic on an ITX? I mean it seems that the only limiting factors are having just one PCIe slot...so no SLI or even popping in a capture card at some future point.
How do you decide on a motherboard when there are so many inconsistent reviews, even on commonly recommended boards? Do you just have to ignore negative reviews or are all motherboards potential problems waiting to happen?
