I have nothing to cancel, but I would have done the same. Blizzard really fucked this one up.

Blizzard committed a well-publicized, catastrophically huge oof recently, so I cancelled my subscription in protest.

I love this game, but freedom is far more important than my feelings.

Well, I just hit my first issue. Got to the upper part of the library, with all the traps. Just booted the game up, left the save point just outside the shortcut to the upper part, and now I just get a black screen when I enter the upper part :/

But yeah, I never really got into the castlevania games before. I've played a bit of sotn and such, but never really spent the time to get into the games, so this is pretty much my first real foray into them (yeah, ok, not technically a castlevania, but it might as well be.)

I really like the mechanics in the game. It seems like farming ingredients is kinda tedious (I know you can buy them after you've crafted them, but even so). To the point that the second book I took out from the library was the luck one. But even with that, I haven't hit a point yet where I really need to farm anything so whatever.

Yeah I've been enjoying it a lot. Also went out and bought an Oculus Rift S, so been having crazy fun with Beat Saber.

Get Robo Recall. It's incredible. Sadly, it isn't free with the Rift S (it was with the CV1 + Touch bundle), but I think it's still well worth the price tag. I keep going back to it despite 100%ing it twice.

Also, Lone Echo is an awesome experience after you've gotten your VR legs.

Edit: Also, I highly recommend investing in a VR Cover if you haven't already. It lets you put a nice, easily washable piece of cloth over the somewhat abrasive foam. It makes it far more comfortable to wear for extended periods of time, and in my experience almost completely eliminates "Oculus Face."

Congrats, mon!

It's kind of amazing how much more efficient you can be when you sort of know what's going on. It felt like it took forever for me to hit 80 my first time (never hit the cap until Wrath, obviously) but subsequent caps happened much, much faster.

Kind of a shame the game loses a bunch of its magic and wonderment when you know what you're doing, but I guess that's to be expected.

I've got the Acer Predator BMIPRZ XB241YU, 24 inch 144hz (OC'd to 165) myself. With a 1070 I get like ~90 FPS in borderlands 2 with shit maxed at 4k then downsampled to 1440p lol. Not that that game is exactly hard to run, but I was surprised I could do that with this thing. I haven't played anything that actually seems to tax my card so far, but that's also because I really don't play games all that often any more -.- So given all that, yeah, you're gonna be able to basically do whatever you want with that thing and not have to worry about "can I run this at max?".

Yeah I've been enjoying it a lot. Also went out and bought an Oculus Rift S, so been having crazy fun with Beat Saber. 3 hours played, first 3 song packs completed on Expert. Gonna tackle the bonus songs today then hopefully start moving my way to Expert+

*Edit*
Also, I have the Acer Predator BMPIRZ, so I always try to keep my FPS above 144. With every game so far at max gfx it's been no problem. Fuckin' love it.

So, I acquired a copy of Bloodstained. And holy hell, I'm loving this. Looks like I've finally found something to sink my teeth into for a while. It's rare these days for a game to just immediately pull me in. I'm not sinking every waking moment into the game, but that's a good thing because it means I might not burn out on it nearly as quickly as I often do for other games.
