What's this going to do for PSU requirements? If someone is using a low power card, will they still be required to get a 500W+ PSU just because PCIe 4 motherboard requires it? That's what it appears to do. Is there a option in the spec to drop to 75w or less?

You only have to spec your PSU to TPD, aka, the amount of power actually drawn by your system. The bus isn't going to draw 300W of power if it only needs 120W. What's it going to do with the other 180W?

Not knowing S from shinola.....is there a reason we went to Mars? We knew nothing was there.....maybe go elsewhere? At this point just seems like nerds jerking it over some pics of dirt.

It's the closest planet. Baby steps, man, baby steps.

I'd say NMS did a pretty dang good job of breaking on its own.

Solomon stated that the minimum would be 300W, but the ceiling “may be 400 or 500W.

While I applaud the move to allow more power through the connector, 400 or 500W is ridiculous. There isn't a single graphics card out there that eats that more power anymore, so all they're doing is making the connector more expensive for no purpose. 300W is more than plenty.

Edit: Burrito, I think he's talking about a single slot/connector. I imagine if there are two PCIe 4.0 slots on your mobo, they will both get the upgraded draw capacity.

The authorities said any First Amendment rights Backpage has are secondary to the government's investigation into human trafficking on the Internet.

Fuck Backpage.com to hell and beyond, but that's not how the Constitution works, government, despite you desperately, DESPERATELY wishing it were so.

You can't simply declare someone's constitutional rights null and void because "reasons."

Does anyone know if the pre-order mission with DX:MD is going to be released later? I remember there being some backlash about some of the pre-order stuff a while back and they changed it. For some reason I remember reading that the pre-order mission would be a timed exclusive and be released for everyone later, but I can't seem to find any recent info about it.

I'm asking because I pre-ordered DX:MD a couple of weeks ago from Games Republic, but there is still no Steam key in my games list on the site. I then saw comments on their store page from other people saying that it's not a pre-order like you get in other places with the stupid bonus stuff, but just a pre-order of the final retail game.

I only pre-order stuff if I find a good deal on it, and I got it from Games Republic for $39.99 which is a good deal. GMG has the real pre-order for only $5 more. I'm tempted to request a refund and buy it from GMG.

IIRC they said that they did away with the silly pre-order shit that they had going for awhile, and everyone who bought it would just get all the typical stuff such as the extra mission. Obviously the Limited edition etc still gets more, but all the basic pre-order stuff should be included.

Even if you miss it, it probably won't really amount to anything. The extra mission for DE:HR (rescuing Tong's kid) was pathetic. Literally a single room added onto a sewer with four guards and a cell in it.

Performance is terrible, and they're skipping from alpha straight to release.

I skimmed through the video, and I will say that it looks very impressive. I do hope there will be a way to turn off the motion blur, though, as it's pretty intrusive.

But it's starting to look really good.

It is slightly disturbing to see them playing this is a controller on the PC though instead of mouse/keyboard and flightstick.

100% guaranteed to be on consoles after release.

I'm beginning to think they may be skewing in that direction, yeah. It was easy to ignore consoles when they simply had nowhere near the power to run this (even the final, optimized version), but perhaps NEO, and most likely Scorpio, WILL have the power to run it, so why not spend a bit of money to reach more customers.

Makes sense to me.

Wow, they paused the console versions and are releasing the PC version first? Has that ever even happened before??

I honestly never had issues with Pritchard even with my first play through. He was a snarky dick but just the way he and Jensen would bicker and interact with each other was fun.

I wish someone would have modded Archer's voice over Pritchard, that would have been hilarious.

Other than that, eh, yeah, Pritchard was a dick, but so was Adam, so that pretty much evened out. By the end, Pritchard is the guy watching your ass, so he was cool for me.

The game's alright. The map is glorious, it puts every other racing game's maps to shame. Once you get some upgrades on your car, they start behaving better to the point where you actually have some control over them.

That said, I watched a 17 min gameplay clip from this expansion, and it's just terrible. If a player cop falls more than 500 yards behind you, he gets automatically teleported right back onto your ass at full speed. And even in that trailer, the cops' lines were already repeating.

Just ugh. Ignore this and get Forza Horizon 3 in a month.
