I smile at how ironically perfect that is...

In all sincerity its not that bad of a game. It ran really well, just written poorly and as generic as anything. Considering the brand name and hype (I remember the Game Informer cover story from like 5 years before it released) it was garbage. At least when we played it, we had no issues, it was just really generic.

Upgraded from stock.  I think the fan attached to the cooler was going bad as well.

I have this and a FX-8350

Got it two years ago, nothing goes over 60 on load and its in the low to mid teens on idle. The only thing that sucks about it is the AMD bracket is a fucking pain to get on, but once its on you dont have to take it off unless you want to change the thermal paste. The TX3 is discontinued now, but I cant recommend it enough for air cooling. 

 

Im going liquid on my new build but the TX3 was a great investment.

Ugh, this is disappointing. Was hoping it'd be a return to form, sounds like more of the same. Miss the good Need for Speeds.

Read about 3-4 reviews now, all the same.

If there is a Far Cry 5 promo it will be with Nvidia as they're partnered with Ubi and there's already Nvidia features confirmed for FC5. This is potentially problematic because of the GPU requirement, so remains to be seen how they handle that. I agree that there probably will be one as this is the first fall in years not to have an Ubi-centric Nvidia promo but I expect Nvidia to institute some new devilry.

Having said that, I am a regular and I do business in here on a semi-regular basis. I do so because the bad actors on this site are few and far between. Most CAGs, in my experience, are trustworthy and don't price-gouge.

Same feeling/opinion, Ive done business with a lot of good people here. That being said, this thread is almost always a 2nd or 3rd option despite the amount of time I spend on this site in other areas of the forum. This section should be the go to for what it's aiming to do, far too often it isn't.

ACO (steam key)

Doesn't exist. Can only get the Steam version as a gift. All keys = uPlay only.

 

why people still care about someone else prices still boggles me, list your items and move on, who cares is someone is selling a game for 100 and the rest for 5, this is not the Dr. Phil show, carry on.

Because of the optics. If someone can "get away with" selling a bundle game for an exorbitant price it ruins the whole market. Sure, its perfectly fine for anyone to set prices at any level they desire. At the same time overt profiteering should be discouraged. This is "Cheap Ass Gamer" after all. Its perfectly fine to profit, but sharking is another thing entirely.

 

It also should be pointed out that MANY regulars of this forum that are predominantly PC gamers won't do business in this thread and refer to it as "the cesspool". There's a reason for that.

I dont think I've watched a first run CBS show in more than 10 years bar a Survivor season that a HS classmate was a castmember on. Terrible trash network. I won't even watch sporting events that have Jim Nantz calling them. That said, most of the old guard major networks (CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox) have overall bad original programming these days. Good stuff is the exception nowadays.

I'm a big fan of SVU, not as much after Christopher Meloni left, but it's the only L&I I like. Some of the stories are pure cheese, like their take on gamergate, but I enjoy most of their stories and Ice T. My favorite Twilight Zone was the like 90s or 00s remakes with Method Man and Usher and other celebrities.

Fox advocates for Lil Jon becoming the new go to star every bro night. Massive Lil Jon fan.

EDIT 2 - Reading the thread on reddit it sounds like you can't use the RE5 gold key if you already own the base game.

Not true.

 

I was able to do this myself and already owned the base.

Huh.  Official Vanilla servers coming in the future for WoW, new expansion is going to be very faction-based.  The name is Battle for Azeroth, the opening cinematic has Horde/Alliance fighting and was very visually impressive.  Blizz keeps upping their cinematic quality.  Hanzo and Alexstrasza coming to Heroes of the Storm.  New hero for Overwatch named Moira, actually looked pretty interesting.  Also a new map coming for Overwatch that is a Blizzard theme park with stuff like a snack bar called Snaxxaramas, a Tristram church, a rollercoaster and some other stuff.  

我不知道這是什麼意思
