Been having issues with this old thing. Losing video signal, then crashing. I reseated memory and the video card 'casue memory had given issues before and that seemed to fix it.

For awhile. The other night it started up again.

I was about 70% sure it was the aging motherboard, and about 30% sure it was the video card dying. I had gone so far as to pick out a ryzen 1600 and motherboard to buy when I put the video card in the secondary slot yesterday. It hasn't crashed since.

Don't wanna jinx it but looks like it was the old board after all.

Yep. It was. It finally went down friday night and I could not get it running again. Pulled the card, memory, and drives out of it and put them in the p3258 that DeVy stopped using when we got her laptop and it all works fine.

RIP my i5-2500k.

I have a feeling this game would be of interest to several people around here.

Think Animal Crossing except you are growing cats and exploring.

Each post on Reddit can be upvoted or downvoted. Someone complained about EA charging $80 for a game then wanting more money to have a character unlocked. EA gave this nonsense response which made a new record on reddit for any post with 547000 downvotes.

Wow. That hit HN maybe eight hours ago, and it had a mere 250K or so downvotes then. =:D

(Well deserved. EA's as beloved a corporation as Comcast, but even so, it's possible they might notice their plans aren't being universally lauded)

EA has just lowered the cost to unlock major characters by 75%.

The AMA they are planning to do is going to be a real shit show. Even with lowering the cost, a lot of people on reddit are saying that it is too little, too late.

There should be no cost on an $80 game to "unlock" a character. I won't buy any game like that. Charging extra for new lands like with skyrim is ok.

I guarantee that they've found another way to do the same thing, like decrease the rate you earn in-game currency, and are hoping nobody notices. They are dead-set on that extra money and there's no way they're leaving that on the table.

As horrible as the practice is, the sad thing is that it works. There are always going to be people with more money than time who think nothing of spending extra to have things now, even in a game they paid "full price" for.

Yeah except they apparently also lowered the credit reward for campaigns from 20,000 to 5,000 (75%).

A tweet from EA that justified that change was that the credit award was to cover the cost of Iden; which that unlock has been lowered to 5,000. So, it's a wash.

Quote:
Emperor Palpatine, Leia Organa and Chewbacca are 10,000 credits to unlock, and Iden Versio, the all-new hero of Battlefront 2’s single-player campaign, is 5,000 credits. Originally, Vader and Luke were 60,000 credits, Palpatine, Leia and Chewbacca 20,000 credits, and Iden 20,000 credits.

“Based on what we’ve seen in the trial, this amount will make earning these heroes an achievement, but one that will be accessible for all players,” said EA DICE’s John Wasilczyk. “It's a big change, and it’s one we can make quickly.”

Silly Darnk, how are they supposed to charge all the microtransactions if you don't give them a real credit card?
