Are you coming back or still hooked on Fortnite? They need to hurry up and release the final two maps for Turning Tides. I like where the game is at right now, heaps of fun and pretty well balanced IMO.


Yeah I think I'll just wait until the next two maps are released before jumping back in.

 

Haven't played much of Fortnite either - it's only fun if friends are on too, can't enjoy it too much playing solo.

Yeah I basically answered my own question.
Looking at the CES announcements I might go with the current gen 1700x or 1800x considering the 20-30% price drop they are getting from AMD (hopefully that converts to NZ stores also?!). And will skip Zen+ and wait for Zen2. I dont think Zen+ will give enough of an increase from the premium you'll be paying esp for what I need.


Hmm, I think Ryzen+ will be a decent improvement over Ryzen, the price for Ryzen+ should be the same as what Ryzen was at launch, if you're in no hurry might be worth waiting to see how much of an improvement it actually is?

 

If you want something now then Ryzen will do just fine too :)

 

Also, Intel CPUs are suffering from two major security bugs at the moment, Meltdown and Spectre.

also still thinking about whether to go Intel CPU or Ryzen CPU. Anyone have an opinion on this? If I was just gaming then Intel would be the obvious choice, but Ill also likely do some video and photo editing, streaming etc so the Ryzen seems a better choice for that considering the gain in those apps vs the very small drop in gaming fps (or gain if game is coded to utilize the extra cores/threads).


If you're going to be multi-tasking and using your PC for different things then maybe go with Ryzen 8 core / 16 threads? Their next-gen Ryzen (Zen+ 12nm) will be available in April.

Nearly 4 weeks since I last played, I haven't unlocked any of the new guns!


In Topic: PlayStation Store 12 Deals of Christmas 2017

It sucks that the % discount is different for different regions. Initially I was looking at the AUS PlayStation Store and some of those prices looked good, then realized it wasn't NZ.

 

For example Battlefield 1 Revolution Edition is $42.95 (56%) for NZ and $30.95 (63%) for AUS.

 

Same goes for almost all the games.
