TOTAL WARHAMMER 3 ITS TIME FOR CHAOS

The trailer just dropped for Total war: Warhammer 3 and it looks like its going to be Kislev, Carthay, and Chaos. The FAQ says its going to be something like 6 factions with 9 legendary lords. I'm assuming its going to be the 4 chaos gods with maybe an option for undivided but we'll see. Also mod support at launch.
I'm curious what they are going to do for Carthay but since they whipped together the vampire coast using lore tidbits it will probably be the same deal. 
So anons whats your favorite faction? I have been partial to Skaven but they have a lot of cheese strats heh and Ikit can make the campaign a joke but it's just so fun.

A likely possibility is that these people deliberately make their mental illnesses public so that they can complain for attention and victim points once someone brings it up. Or if someone criticizes them for any other reason, which they see as an opportunity to claim oppression.

Anyone still play this game? I finally got it after eyeing it for months, and I've been hooked recently. It reminds me of Rimworld but with more exploration.

Here's my little base so far, and some random NPC bullying a bandit.

I was using confusing and whacky terminology. Forgive me. My settlement was just outside "The Hub" in "The Border Zone". I was laboring under the assumption that I'd be able to build up and claim the hub, but alas the game was not built for that kind of stuff (I think maybe a mod sort of kind of fixes that, but not really). It was really a stones throw from The Hub and a stones throw from some bar. I think the "Thieves Guild" was actually the "Shinobi Thieves" also. They have a tower you can hide in and train in if you're a member (there's just a fee for joining, as I recall). It's been awhile.
I was reminded just now while looking the location up that there was also a bar a stone's throw away and I led a lot of starving bandits there, where they'd get absolutely smushed by the one guard there. It's crazy how easily one well armed and well trained man can just rock a mob of twenty starving losers. That's how I got my start-up funds, scavenging from the dead/dying and selling to that bar, maybe the idea of that place got me thinking of the "Salty Spittoon" which is why I was calling the entire area the "Sandy Spittoon". The whole place is so violent, so many people want to fight all the time. Later I got a bit into slaving and drug trading but as I recall my money was mostly selling run-off from my eternal smiths leveling their skills so I could arm my clan with decent weapons, armor and clothes. It's far m

What are some of your favorite games from this period? 
To name a few of mine: RE4, CBFD, Space Channel 5 Part 2, Persona 4, SOTC, Burnout 3, Yakuza, SM Sunshine, Vice City, Destroy all Humans, Sly Cooper, Sonic Adventures and many, many others.
I'm also looking for some recommendations. Hopefully some not so well known games. Any genre really.

I'm also thinking of playing Two Towers and Return of the King on PS2.
What are some of your favorite licensed videogames? Is there any property you would like to see a game based off?
I would like to see a new Pepsiman game.

I played it countless times in my childhood yet I don't know if it was good. I now have a disdain for Peter Jackoff CGI films, so that doesn't help, but I remember the FPS sections being solid, with a mix of limited ammo and tense enemy encounters that made me feel wired. The kong sections were eye candy filler with simplified gameplay and none of those good qualities, I enjoyed them as a kid but wouldn't enjoy them today.

CDPR address the problems with the game by doubling down and lying more about everything. Most blatantly that they didn't know about the issues on old consoles and pretending that the PC version was fit for release. They've released a roadmap (pic related) for 2021 and as you can see it's vague as shit and has no real promises, just patches, "free DLC" (cut content lol) and next gen versions for the consoles barely anybody owns. Polish developers LMAO.

>Q: Why is there such a gap between PC versions of Cyberpunk 2077 and old-gen consoles?
<A: Cyberpunk 2077 is huge in scope, it features a multitude of custom objects, interacting systems and mechanics. In the game, everything is not stretched out over flat terrain where we can make things less taxing hardware-wise, but condensed in one big city and in a relatively loading-free environment. We made it even more difficult for ourselves by first wanting to make the game look epic on PCs and then adjusting it to consoles — especially old-gens. That was our core assumption. And things did not look super difficult at first, while we knew the hardware gap, ultimately, time has proven that we’ve underestimated the task.

>Q: What was the main issue that made development for consoles that difficult?
<A: The main culprit was having to constantly improve our in-game streaming system for old-gen consoles. Streaming is responsible for “feeding” the engine with what you see on screen, as well as the game mechanics. Since the city is so packed and the disk bandwidth of old-gen consoles is what it is, this is something that constantly challenged us.

>Q: Didn’t you test old-gen consoles to keep tabs on the experience?
<A: We did. As it turned out, our testing did not show many of the issues you experienced while playing the game. As we got closer to launch, we saw significant improvements each and every day, and we really believed we’d deliver in the final day zero update.

>Q: Why was there a gap between PC and console reviews?
<A: We started sending out PC review keys to start the review process in the first week of December. Come December 10th, launch day, we had a really good start with PC reviews, and while it’s not perfect, this is a version of the game we were, and still are, very proud of. When it comes to the review process for consoles, at the same time PC codes were sent out we were still working hard to improve the quality of the game on old-gen consoles. Every extra day that we worked on the day zero update brought visible improvement — that’s why we started sending console codes for reviews on the 8th December, which was later than we had planned.

Don't read docs until you need them or if you are actually curious about it. Just (try) to use it for your everyday stuff until you forget what system you are on, that's usually the point at which you know what you want and all the exposed options start being useful. Plunging too deep to fast is a good way to get vaguely annoyed and switch back because never feel at home.

Burger I presume? I am always a bit confused about the different courses or programs and their content.
A CompSci to me implies ~4 years and more than just MS basics, I think a lot of the degree hate and its context get "lost in translation" depending on the other country.
