I blame it on preorders too though. Too many people preorder and it gives the developers/publishers this feeling that they already got you and your money.

Eh, IMO they screwed up because they wanted to please everyone. They should have dropped the last gen hardware. Which... would have locked them out of the console market at that time, because next gen generally was not available. Their technology was just not up to what the game required for that hardware. That or delay an additional year, which is what happened anyway if you wanted a better experience at launch.

Yeah that is very true. They should have never dropped it on a platform that couldn't handle it. All that time could of been better spent finishing up the PS5/PC versions and you'd have a heck of a lot less pissed off buyers.

I will never judge anyone for having such a negative first impression from a disastrous launch that they never really get over to give a game a chance, even when it's much better - I've done that myself. It doesn't usually happen though, and I'm happy to say that as disgusted as I was that CDPR fucked this launch up so badly, I eventually tried the game after patch 1.5 and a few qol mods. I really, really liked it. I totally get it if some people can't move past the launch though.

I know a lot of people want to be part of the launch day crowd and feeling but it is any different than buying a new generation of a car sometimes? You get the new model that nobody has so you can show it off and get those, woa, what car is that look? You basically early adopted a car that has yet to be run through the mill for reliability and any major problems that can come up. You're effectively doing those tests for the car manufacturer so in the subsequent years they release that model of that generation, all those issues will be fixed. The person that waits it out gets the more reliable/complete version of the car than the first year early adopters.

Now I'm not saying gaming is entirely the same since we're just talking code here and there is no wear and tear on the code as a car incurs but the idea that you would want a flawless AAA game released bug free on day 1 is almost laughable at this point.

Can't wait!!! Card has been ordered and supposed to arrive next week. After going back and forth between MSI 3090ti Suprim X and Asus Rog 3090 White, I ended up going with the Asus because my entire build has been pure white parts. Figure, why stop at the graphic card? The Suprim X, sure has a slight bump in performance but at the cost of even more power consumption and ultimately, not enough of a bump to matter when we're talking 3090s. Plus I'm not gaming at 4k.

Can't wait to try out this game in all its glory and then bring on Witcher 3 remaster hopefully by the end of the year!!

Is it finally worth playing? I’ll probably pick it up during the holidays (on sale)

Debatable from what I've heard. Some people played through it on PC at launch and had a pleasant time. They indicate that they experienced some bugs here and there but nothing that ruined their experience and nothing to the extreme of what the PS4 version suffered.

That said, I'm sure anyone that replays it now would have a potentially night and day experience and obviously more enjoyable. Can't wait to try it as my first game on new build (if I can ever find a 3090ti in stock).

I'm not sure about the spin off since I'm mostly all about Geralt and his adventures but I MAY give it a shot if reviews are favorable. I've literally only ordered Netflix the past couple times, purely for Witcher season release. As soon as I finished watching the season, I canceled my subscription. I'm not saying this spin off would make me keep Netflix at all. If it's good, I'd order just to watch it and then cancel again, lol.

My i9 came with free copy of MW2. Haven't played much of the COD games but I checked a video of MW2 to see if it's worthy of the 150gb installation demand and trying on my new rig. I'd have to say, it certainly looks like it.

Was following this game since early development. I'm not even sure how I found it but wish listed it immediately. I then got an invite to test the game. It was already so good that I didn't want to play it too much and spoil the full release. That time has come. I can't wait to pick it up. The early test build was outstanding. Can't imagine what they've done since.

Why haven't you by now?

On my 3rd (and probably final) playthrough with the Corpo start.

Still hoping they do Cyberpunk 2077 online.

Been waiting to build a new PC as my current from 2015 has seen its limits in newer game capabilities. I did purchase Cyberpunk last week on sale but that's only because I should have my PC built by end of the month. Going to be the first game I try on it

This made me fire up Devil Daggers again since I only had 7 minutes of play time recorded. While I got up to like 18 minutes now, it's just one of those where you can't play for too long. Not all that much going on besides all that is going on.

This one looks like Devil Daggers took mushrooms and every other drug on the market. Ill probably pick it up when it's being sold for almost nothing, lol. I know what to expect.

It's not a scam if they're working on it still. Just put aside the fact that probably 350million of that half a billion went into the developers pockets. EZ money.

Sounds good since the team is headed by the same guy who was the GotG lead and GotG was awesome. Single player action adventure is music to my ears in a sea of shallow multiplayer trash. Bring it on!
SP all the way!!!!!

I second this. Granted as I get older, I become more isolated and limited on my time. I like a good single player that I can stop and quit at any moment and come back to it. Long gone are my days of coordinating gatherings in chat rooms and whatnot to get into a game tog ether with high school friends, lol. Not saying anything is wrong with that. I had a blast. Again, I just lack the time to commit to specific times.

What Huang actually said is up to 4x faster than the RTX 3090Ti if the following conditions are met:

- The game needs to be GPU limited
- DLSS 3 on the RTX 4090 with RT enabled

Here:

In GPU-limited games, DLSS 2 and its Super Resolution technology can increase your frame rates by up to 2X. With DLSS 3, we can boost them by up to 4X in fully ray-traced worlds like those seen in the incredible NVIDIA Racer RTX.
[...]
Today’s ray-traced games see their performance increase by up to 2X compared to the GeForce RTX 3090 Ti. And tomorrow’s RTX titles, such as Cyberpunk 2077, Portal with RTX and NVIDIA Racer RTX, leveraging DLSS 3, SER and other Ada innovations, run up to 4X faster!

^ The general performance uplift of the RTX 4090 is up to 2x compared to the RTX 3090Ti and the performance uplift can be as high as 4x if a GPU-limited game supports DLSS 3 as well as if it benefits from the new SER tech and other fancy shit.

I think it is pretty impressive and I will definitely buy a RTX 4090.

BTW, they kind of spoiled the very unspectacular title of the 'The Witcher 3' remaster which will apparently just be called 'The Witcher 3 Complete Edition'. It is included in the list of the 35 games with DLSS 3 support on launch.

I don't think it'll matter. It is Witcher 3 which runs flawless on anything out from like 3 years ago. No matter what kind of mods they install to get it to look better, I highly doubt it would even put a dent in processing requirements that a 4 series, 3 series, heck, probably a 2 series couldn't already run maxed out. I think they use big name titles instead for attention. They know they get plenty of people's attention if they say, Witcher 3 will be ready for it, yet it's not even necessary...

For what it's worth, I watched some of the footage circulating all over the place at this point and was impressed by the animations. They're taking the human looking movements to another level once again. The shooting of someone and watching how they react before falling is frightening realistic. To the point where, I think playing the game enough is going to truly desensitize you to how it would be if you saw someone get shot right in front of you in real life. I'm not sure if getting ultra realistic in games that are based in real world/real life is a good thing entirely...

i remember statements like these from the 80's then the 90's(Doom anyone?)and the aughts on up.. Stahp!

Haha, I know about those times. Heck, they thought Mortal Kombat would show someone how they can use their bare hands to rip a person's head clean off theirs shoulders... Yet nobody took any of that seriously because it was all cartoony at the end of the day.

What Rockstar has here is something that borderlines real life and lets you simulate mass murders/shootings, etc. and at this point, at the most realistic manner possible. My point being was that, shooting a demon in the face gives you zero feels of how that would translate to shooting... a real demon in the face, lol. On the other hand, GTA6 gives you a simulation of how a person looks like dying to the point of realism that you wouldn't be fazed if you saw someone in real life get shot in the body or face and saw them fall over. It's quite graphic... I'll still buy the game though

I don't think this leak is as big a deal. Honestly, you're going to spoil the game for yourself by watching anything. At this point, you know what Diablo is all about. Expect more of it with better technology. I'll refrain from watching anything else on this game and just wait until it drops.
