I tried to watch the first episode of WV last night and I think it went whooshing right over my head. It just seemed like a lame mashup of Bewitched and The Munsters.

I kind of recall Vision being created in one of the Iron Man or Avenger movies. And I barely remember Wanda from Infinity War or End Game. Can anyone give me a sort of primer about which MCU movies I should rewatch?

The twins are initially introduced in a after the credits scene (Winter Soldier I believe) and then again in Avengers Age of Ultron.

It's an aspect of Scarlet Witch's incredible power, which they barely even acknowledge in the MCU... She's been known to fabricate her own realities from time to time, and AFAIK doesn't need an infinity stone to do it.

So if we geek out MCU wise, one of the Infity Stones gave her and her brother powers, and gave life to Vision. While Widow and Gamora (actually forgot one in my count) are tangled up with the Mind stone I believe. And considering what we've seen of WandaVision, it appears that Wanda has made I Love Lucy, Bewitched and Brady Bunch versions of herself and Vision. So maybe this is the big dig deep into her powers and gets Vision back.

I'm enjoying it, but to think they made anything close to perfection on the PC and the last gen consoles unfortunately got shafted. We'll that's a bit too thick for me, there is plenty of "push it out the door" going on with the PC game as well. Just sayin. The best thing is we are talking about a game so whoopi.

Yeah WAY to many issues on PC for them to claim it was fine on PC.

I started as a Nomad, and just finished the game yesterday. Started as a female Corpo and was very sad to know the intro for Corpo is all of like 20 mins.

Completely off topic for anything.. but I was wondering if anybody knows what happened to Creston? He commented pretty much daily until December 2019 and not a word after that!

Creston is alive and well (chatted with him this evening), as he called it it's Dec 45th (which I'm stealing).

Sigh. Time to chalk up my hands and prepare to climb some towers.

Haha! I was too late to make this exact comment.

That said, I've gotten a lot of hours out of the Ubisoft formula games, so I'm cautiously interested.

Massive Games didn't have towers....

WAIT WAIT WAIT... that means EA lost the exclusive license deal?!? *YAY!*

So the question becomes... Open world game... so no starships, and on 1 planet...... Only 1 planet I can think of to really support that (Corcucant and I can't spell for crap today).

When I explain adaptive sync to some people who don't have it they generally see it as a gimmick which isn't worth having and they believe that right up until they get a monitor with adaptive sync at which point they've essentially crossed a virtual Rubicon where they just can't go back.

I don't know if I would recommend a G-Sync only panel now though since Freesync monitors which support G-Sync are often a fair bit cheaper and AMD pushing out great cards.

Having a G-Sync monitor and Nvidia card does work and it is very noticeable.

The two celebrity deaths that affected me the most were Stevie Ray Vaughn and Robin Williams.

My parents were lovers of comedy and growing up ya either heard my mom's Barry Manilow collection or my mom and dad's collection of comedy albums. Robin Williams and Bill Cosby were the majority of the collection. So loosing Robin Williams (was number one on my bucket list to go see him live) really hit home, especially considering how he died. When all the nastyness of Bill Cosby came out it was saddening that someone who was Americana and watched on TV for decades had such a horrible side.

But if 2020 has taught us anything.... we adapt, overcome and survive.

I got to the 2 min mark and turned it off. It's just a clickbait video that has quite a bit of opinion and not so many facts.

Maybe it's because the facts were AFTER the 2 minutes mark?

It is 24 minutes long after all. 2 minutes in is just still in the intro. What did you expect?

Yeah because he obviously never played Battlecruiser 2000AD, or Ultima 9, or No Man's Sky. Yeah the game has it's problems but is it unplayable as stated in the description? I can't comment on the console versions, but it is very playable on the PC. And they even show Witcher 3 from the E3 trailer and release game. Sadly this isn't anything new as Ubisoft is the king of the sorta crap.
And they saw it coming? NO ONE saw it coming and that's what made everyone so furious.

This is a video about someone being butt-hurt. Nothing more nothing less.

Rofl, "How I saw this coming"

The game has issues, but people need to relax, sheesh. Like Cyberpunk 2077 hasn't already been patched, and isn't going to be further patched, added to, and modded.

Metacritic really needs to go back and revisit games like No Man's Sky and Grim Dawn--just to name a couple of games that have received updates and improvements galore since they originally shipped.

Very tempted to get No Mans Sky - the recent reviews are stellar.

I have tried Cyberpunk, with Ray Tracing and the whole graphics thing (new computers in Barad-Dur, powered by 1000 hobbits on a big wheel, and 1000 goblins blowing air on the CPUs). Still not impressed so far.

A shame - the Witcher 3 was so good (even though I was rooting for the Wild Hunt the whole game)...

Then I will be more then happy to trade ya my 1080ti for whatever card you have with that allows Ray Tracing

The farther I get in the game the more bugs I encounter. Weapons I pick up are being auto equipped, getting stuck in hacking mode or crouched, missing elements from missions, unable to directly message contacts, and the Nvidia Cyberpunk drivers that fubar GSYNC and Dual Monitors with a 1080ti.

Here's my short wishlist.
Being able to pick stuff up under the cursor. Being able to turn off the radio as a passenger in a vehicle (few NPC's have really bad taste in music like River), being able to romance anyone (including River, even though as a male you can attempt to kiss him), being able to unequip clothing, more tutorials on things like that there is a horn for all vehicles (just found out this yesterday), Cops going apeshit if ya just look in their general direction more then 10 seconds. Traffic able to go around like my bike being 1 foot into the lane and it comes to a dead halt.

So far I like the game and can see them putting out quite a bit of DLC considering just how massive the world is.
