Not entirely sure what to think right now. I'm intrigued, but if they do classes the way GW2 did them (ie no set roles like tank/healer/dps) then I'm probably not going to play it. Real talk.

Also, you should all get Crusader Kings 2. Wally and I have been playing it online for a bit now. It is just so hilarious at all the amazing things that can happen in that game. So deep.

A good comparison is...Rome: Total War, but there isn't the in-game/controllable battles, however the stuff related to your heir/dynasty/etc. is a million times deeper.

I had a game today that was absurd. Managed to FINALLY take control and become the King of Ireland, then my ruler fell ill and died before I had a male heir so my daughter became the Queen of Ireland. Pretty much everyone hated a female ruler, so I ended up in a massive civil war started by my Uncle to gain control of the throne. Barely squeaked out a win and finally managed to gain control over the kingdom. Of course, as a female ruler, I have yet to pop on a boy so I stood to lose all my lands so I had to change my succession style to elective monarchy in order to appoint my sister as next in line. Not quite sure how it will turn out.

nrk found this nugget that makes me feel a -lot- better about EQN already:

Frankly, the whole thing sounds a bit like ArenaNet's take on combat, and while I'm okay with this I know others might not be. But let's be clear here: EQN will sport the trinity and traditional class roles. Healers, Support, Crowd Control, DPS, Tanks, rejoice!

ArenaNet's take on it? What does that mean precisely?

A bit more action emphasis, such as Guild Wars 2. Weapons have skills attached to them as well, not sure exactly how that works yet.

That's alright with me. Honestly, it almost looked like they were going with a hack and slash style so I'm relieve that there is still dice based combat.

Dean Hall (DayZ dev) is hilarious. People were harassing him again about why DayZ Standalone isn't released so he put this up.

Yeah, people just need to relax. Let him develop the game. He admits he screwed up big time with the December release date, but since then he hasn't given any dates of when it was going to be released with certainty.

It's funny, he's probably been one of the most active devs in terms of interacting with the community but he takes a ton of heat. Take as long as the game needs. People often forget what an alpha really is, and how buggy it can be. Heck, I played the BF3 alpha, which was done by a AAA dev and that was TERRIBLY buggy.

I'm expecting the alpha to be buggy, but if he says there are game breaking/crashing bugs then it's not worth playing right now.

x1000. 99% of the gaming community doesn't understand what ALPHA means anyhow. They'll buy it then give it terrible reviews and call it an "unfinished product". -_- Can't fault him in the slightest for holding the game back from release until it is up to his standards.

Yeah, I think because of Minecraft, Steam early access, etc, people have become less aware to what an alpha actually is. It's pre-beta, which by its own accord is still often very buggy. Alphas were LARGELY unplayable until recently when it became necessary for indie games to create a profit earlier in the development process. Games almost never released alphas because they were typically way too buggy for the general population of gamers to deal with. I'm sure despite tons of warnings by Hall, a lot of people will buy the alpha and scream, "OMG THIS GAME IS A POS AND IS SO BUGGY!"

Forenci is willing to give a game he's interested in the benefit of the doubt, but not for any other games or companies.

What? That's not even remotely true. Are you talking about EQNext? I'm really interested in that game and am willing to give it the benefit of the doubt. I am interested to see if they can pull off everything they've promised, but that doesn't mean I'm not giving it the benefit of the doubt. EQNext is probably the only MMO that remotely interests me at the moment.

I'm not sure what else you'd be referring to.

Sooooo, my computer pooped the bed. Sort of. Brother sold me is GTX 680 for $125 because he has some strange need to upgrade his graphics card almost yearly. I let him do the installation, which I assumed would be fine because he's built quite a few more computers than me but after the install I kept getting a boot disk error. Looked like a SATA cable was broken so I went to buy a new one, replaced it, and it seemed to solve the boot disk error. However, I still needed to reformat it because I'm pretty sure there was some data corruption that couldn't be repaired.

Now, for whatever reason, the USB inputs won't recognize anything so I cannot get it to boot a fresh copy of Windows. I'm really not sure what to do. Tried doing a bunch of troubleshooting to see what it might be. Definitely not GPU related. I don't think there is an issue with the SATA cables at all either. I feel like if the motherboard were damaged in any significant way, the thing wouldn't boot.

I don't know if it's something wrong with the USB ports themselves, but when plugged in, it does power up my keyboard. It just doesn't recognize and allow me to use it. My only thought is maybe the power supply is somewhat faulty and it's not getting enough power? I feel like if it was severely damaged it just wouldn't boot up period and power it.

I know it's getting enough power too, assuming it's not broken. My brother has the same power supply as me and runs a system that requires far more power than mine.

Any ideas? My processor is old enough where finding a MB for it is probably going to be EXTREMELY difficult too. I saw one for $200+ and it was some off brand I'd never heard of. I'm really hoping I don't have to replace the motherboard, because that likely means getting a new processor too. Honestly, I probably cannot afford that while in school, so I may just leave my desktop at home, which makes me super sad.
