And are more willfully uninformed than ever in history...

Are we? I'd think 200 years ago, you only knew of what was right around you and every so often news from the King's Court.

I've only played the tutorial and first mission so far.

I would definitely not buy this game for more than $3 bucks with the content provided so far.

Well here's to content beyond the first mission!!!

I doubt anyone's buying this based on whether it's actually a good game or not.

I can assure you if I do buy this it will only be based on this. The rest of the baggage is no more than forum blah blah to me.

Where's the love here?

Is it just me or does vsync always create unreliable/inconsistent performance? The newest example is in The Witcher 3. Sometimes the fps can very noticeably drop, and when I disable vsync then.. I don't notice it at all. And that's basically my experience with vsync since forever.

Yes when you have a game that can't keep a constant 60. If you do have one, to me it is better also keeps the card cooler.

I'd really like to get a g-sync monitor, but neither of the current manufacturers are trustworthy. I went through 3 Acer monitors over a weekend, each one had stuck pixels. Ended up just getting my money back and buying an LG.

I've owned plenty/seen plenty and sounds like bad luck. Stuck pixels to me seem pretty rare these days. I'd not think twice personally on a acer, I'd just return it and get another one if something was wrong.

As for tearing, varies game to game.
As for vsycnh messing with mouse feel, varies game to game.

I prefer synch'd for sure, the top down arpg's to me are the most notable when scrolling the canvas, followed closely by a FPS with tearing.

What does it matter? If people pay money to support it in some fashion, then they do, fuck the label, whatever. It is competition and it's the best they can find that will do it, not sure why we care either way.

The only thing that's come from all of this is more disclaimers on videos released stating that the game may not look like what is shown in them.


You mean like those mobile commercials?

It would be a good move, more money spent and more people playing games through out the summer.

How's that a good move? Think about stuff like health insurance. All those fat obese immobile kids with their candy paws glued to a fucking controller are going to drive premiums up.
I, for one, am hoping that kids go outside in summer more and play other games.... like chasing some pussy.

Try harder next time, you're slipping.

Yeah it's all about this dreamed future of mobile that has a very good chance of not happening like they and other predict. This is what you get when the market is based on Free with micro-trans and advertising.

As for on the PC, doesn't matter to me, don't need them.

Best NFS game was Porsche Unleashed, but Hot Pursuit was very fun. It was also the last NFS game I ever bought. By the looks of things, that isn't about to change.

Which was one you bought that you didn't like?

I made that mistake in the past and paid dearly for it.. and for the minor expense of getting a mid-grade PSU, it is a lot more comforting knowing that I have a stable and reliable power supply in my rig.

Mid-grade, sounds about right, but what is that and those can still be found cheap. Yes there are really cheap PSU's but those may have the watts, probably not, but they won't have the connectors. Today driving a newer GPU, you are probably already into mid-grade by default and those can be found from time to time at $35, most of the time easily found at $50.

Cheaper PSUs don't last as along, and have more voltage regulation issues.

I don't necessarily agree with this. The systems I have run 24/7, 3 of 4 do go into sleep mode. But most run months without a reboot as well. To me it seems how clean is the power coming into your psu, and not so much as a sine level, but just spikes in power outages and re-attempts to get power back up. That is where a ups takes care of that issue and does clean the power to the psu, cheap or expensive.

Think perhaps a Bose or Monster Cable thing is going on here.

I bought my PSU for 60 bucks with a 10 dollar mail in rebate at Microcenter. It's 750w that is more than capable of my system as long as I don't go SLI. The PSU itself hasn't had great reviews (Corsair Bronze) but it's been a champ so far so I can't say anything bad about it.

What I've found more important than a better PSU, yes granted you have to have a strong enough one to handle your HW, but those specs have been coming down as GPU and CPU are more efficient. Having a UPS setup to me has finally solved the attack on PSU's when power goes out and tries to restart several times real quick again, harsh on electronics, I've seen cheap and expensive ones fail here. You can also see the draw of your system with a ups under load and as mentioned single PSU well under 500, that said you can get 750's (shopping) in the price range I stated.

A PSU may be more efficient, maybe. It will not give you 1 more FPS. The trick for me today is watts and connectors, rails are nice to and usually can get it all $50 or less.

Oh yeah, the age of VR is here! L U L Z!

Other than them muddying the water for no good reason. I think we've assumed a decent pc is needed to play high end games. I have to assume the game still matters on the specs you have to have. Otherwise how is the mobile VR capable of 1440p?

Uh I doubt he's talking about including the price of a monitor with a new pc, as most people already have one or hook it up to an existing HDTV.

Also.. $35 PSU? I'm sorry for anyone whom would ever think that is a viable option to put into a machine you're spending $500+ on.

Yeah, well it runs gaming 4 pc's of mine over here for years. If you want to splurge go to $50. It doesn't need a +$100 psu I can assure you.
