given that the 3080 looks like a paper launch no need for these drivers anytime soon, they should try selling some cards iso handing them out for free to influencers all those that I watch semi regularly seem to have 3-4 different ones each.

The 4k gaming flagship comes severly underdeveloped in the video RAM department with just 10 GB - not enough for 4k gaming in 2020 and on. I guess in 2021 they want to sell a 20 GB 3080 Ti to all people buying a regular 3080 in 2020. No, thanks. I can wait for either the 3080 Ti (or more likely 3070 Ti because I don't want such a hot card in my silent pc) with hopefully more RAM in 2021 or a big Navi with 12 or 16 GB VRAM this year. We will see. But this offer is just too greedy - I am not falling for it, Leather Jacket Man!

I don't believe it's the VRAM. I've not seen any glaring problems with my machine. I get close to 4K60 in Flight Sim with Ultra's settings (the game auto-selected that as a recommendation). The issue I see is with the mobo ram running at its peak of 2133 MHz. For example, my mobo and RAMM are both capable of 4000 MHz, but the mobo requires overclocking the CPU, which I won't do.

Aside: I do wonder if that is less the mobo and more the CPU. I have a 8700.

MSFS can easily use more than 10 GB VRAM. Here you can read more about it.

10 GB is not enough in 2020 unless in 2021 you want to sell a 20 GB card to the very same people who bought the 10 GB version in 2020. Bad move.

That would be where the RTX IO comes into play I assume, you don't need tons of memory if you can load stuff fast enough.

God Sweeney, you're such a hypocrite.

Exactly, Sweeney pissing and moaning about Apple and Goggle, and here he is doing the same exact shit to everyone else.
I guess its OK in his fucked up mind to pull this crap on everyone else but he cries a river when hes held accountable for doing it.

Hello pot, meet kettle!

Maybe Steam should throw their two cents into this to and Sue EPIC for trying to monopolize the market with the backstabbing bullshit they are doing. I mean in all honestly I think Steam might have a case in this.

Ah yes, paying studios millions to make a game a temporary exclusive on their storefront that runs on an open platform is exactly the same as charging a flat 30% to every studio that wants to sell on the one storefront allowed on a closed platform.

Exactly the same.

Christ.

Think this is a good PC case? Cooler Master Silencio S600. It's $154 CDN which is fair enough. Seeing as it looks like Europe's out this Fall - le sigh - I may as well start putting together my new PC. Whilst I have to wait until Oct/Nov for the Navi 2 stuff - and corresponding mobos and ram - I figured I could at least get the case and fans now. Coolermaster fans any good or go with something else? I want something quiet and cool, with quiet being the priority. It'll be the solid case cause I don't care about RGB displays.

For quiet, check out https://www.fractal-design.com/products/cases/define/define-7/black/ or https://www.bequiet.com/en/case/silent-base/772

I have used a define R5 and still use an R6, both exellent cases.

Just rumors.
It is just disgusting that you dont tell people why you banned them. How can they learn from that then?
That they deleted the transaction infos on that other case doesnt surprise me then.
They seem to have the same braindead hierarchy as Twitter. Every low employee on a power trip can just play god and then the guys in higher positions defend their mistakes to the death to not seem weak.

I think he knows well enough why he got banned, does not mean he wants to share it with the world and ruin his income.

I don't like the esthetics. This won't be a day one buy for me. It reminds me of ELEX -- the weird hybrid of future and past technology -- and my brain just thinks it's dumb

Not at all have I convinced myself that I won't like it, though, but I'll wait for the usual reviewers I trust (Worth a Buy, Skill Up, that's about it).

Play the game, learn why things they are they way they are and what the name means. Great game worth a purchase.

A $150 Diablo bust and a set of wings marks the 20th anniversary? Wow... Maybe they'll do something interesting for the 25th or perhaps Activision is just illustrating that they have lost all connection to their target market? Remember when Blizzard was a company that made games for gamers rather than lootboxes for addicts?

I'm old enough to remember a time when Blizzard released a game, it was an auto-purchase because the chances of it being good were almost guaranteed. Now, they could announce a Diablo II remake and I wouldn't even consider buying it. Even though I've been waiting for "Diablo III" for over 20 years.

I can't imagine even considering buying that Diablo bust. Let me reward Blizzard by giving them $150 for ruining the Diablo franchise! Where's Disney at, I'll buy a Rey "Skywalker" bust next for $1138?

It's 219€ over here, around 250$ if it makes you feel any better

I love this game, I have 219 hours in it so far, I love that you don't need "currency" like in a lot of other building games like sim city etc..

Took me a while and some YouTube vids to better understand some parts of the game, but once I did it felt great to keep expanding and automating stuff.

So I've tried Borderlands 2 several times, and I get 10 hours or so into the story and it never seems to open up and I get stuck in some snowy area. I thought I've heard that at some point it becomes more like an ARPG where you grind for better loot. I've seen people with thousands of hours into it. Is there a different mode or do people just do the storyline over and over?

You have a couple of options, once you finish the game you can play whichever part of it you want at your current lvl and gear or you can start a new game + which is somewhat harder. Exploration in these games is key, you can find tons of easter eggs and loot if you look around a bit.

I had a great time with BL2 according to steam I have 666 hours into it. Currently at 200 hours into BL3.

I just whish there was a middleground between the 2 in regards to legendaries, in BL2 they are pretty rare, in BL3 you stumble over them (to give you an idea I have 400+ legendaries in BL3 atm and maybe 20 in BL2)

BL1 never grabbed me, not even when it was new, it's the worst one imo, pre-sequel while not as good as 2 and 3 is imo still miles better then the first one, I hate the bloody respawns in the first game, sometimes had to clear the same part 2-3 times in a row to get trough it as if you died far into a mission the enemies at the sart would have respawned and you could not clear them fast enough so you basically had to start over.

I have yet to find a rockstar game I like other then Max Payne 3, I tried GTA IV, vice city and V and red dead redemption 2 and usually quit after 1-2 hours, in GTA V after the opening sequence and the first couple of quests the only quest I could find was in an area I could not access so I just said f it and moved on to better games.

Remove the platforming that ruins the game and makes it extremely boring.

This is why this was the first Doom game that I did not buy on day 1 (or in pre-sale). I was never a fan of platformers and struggled with Donkey Kong and others a looong time ago. I have no desire to make this experience again even if I could Donkey Kong in the face with a shotgun this time.

I "preordered" it a couple days b4 launch with the year one DLC pass after playing a good 2 hours this became my 2nd game ever to request a refund on, the first one beeing the remastered version of age of empires 2 which froze ever 5 sec for a couple seconds.

I may eventually end up buying it again for 5€ or something but that's all it is worth to me with their silly mechanics like gun A for enemy type A and gun 2 for enemy such and such, the ammo management, almost makes it like resident evil game on speed, then there are the silly jumping puzzles which imo should not be in a doom game at all.

Betting it will include restrictions on which platform you can release

No doubt all of these games will be permanent EGS exclusives on PC but also available on consoles despite their tyrannical 30% store "tax."

I'm guessing Epic realized that timed exclusives aren't really working out because people just wait until they're on Steam.

And for half the price too re: Boarderlands 3

And concerning the tyrannical 30% store tax on consoles, that's why PC is great, because we aren't locked into any proprietary walled-garden nonsense. We have choice. Which makes the irony all the more hilarious that a lot of PC gamers now believe that more options = bad because they want everything from one store, smells a lot like the would-be consolization of PC. There are Xbox fanbois, Playstation fanbois, and Steam fanbois, and each is worse than the last.

Or maybe we want to choose which store, you know buy from the cheapest one, since the goods are digital there is no quality difference, but of the goods are only sold in one store they can price it however they want as there is no competition which is ofc better for us the customer right? right?
