    Try to fill the gaps with flat damage reduction thingies and block. The 6 piece invoker set is actually one of the easiest to gear for sets in the game right now and it's really easy to become...

    Hmm, interesting... looks like they decided to suddenly change their Horizons pricing model completely? It's now marked as a season pass/dlc that requires the base game on steam? Made it less...

    Performance on a 4790K and a 970 has been pretty "fine" so far and the only place where i get a noticable framerate drop is in the skyantfarm and when there's lots of rubble flying around. The fact...

    Huh, looks like the Tutorial and Ironman mode are mutually exclusive? That's just beyond silly.

    Sounds like he's using the "proper" definition of "casual", since semantically it has nothing to do with difficulty or complexity and only refers to the time investment and frequency. Someone who...

    To me it sounded like the guy doing the Eurogamer review didn't like the idea of timed missions initially either and was pretty much in the same boat as some of you guys, but was won over by how well...
