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?

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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

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?

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)...
