I lack the words to adequately describe how astounding better games look with HDR, the difference is jaw-dropping (CP2077 is an excellent example). It's up there with playing Quake 2 and going from software renderer to a new 3DFX Voodoo card for the first time.

4) Wait, so... can these guys die? Do they just get injured, like in the XCOM Adventures game? That's less fun, but I guess it works.

Yikes, I've never had an easier time deciding to hit 'pause' on a Humble Choice month...

Yeah, the effects are barely noticeable in the trailer and yet the performance impact will not be. Quake II RTX was definitely enjoyable though - it got me to play through the entire game for the first time.
Nah, having ray-traced reflections is like taking off the horse blinders you've been wearing your whole gaming life. Once you're used to that, it's painful to go back to looking at the smudgy placeholders so many games frequently employ. Even the nicest screen-space mirroring loses its sheen when its limitations are made to look so obvious by comparison.

Narrative games are like walking simulators and visual novels?
in no way do we condone granting or purchasing player items in exchange for money

I think when you die, you start a new character and can keep some incremental progress. And I think the Lovecraft stuff leans more towards his dream stuff than straight horror and insanity.
I picked it up, but is this one of those hyper-stressful games like Darkest Dungeon or Dark Souls? I love Lovecraftian stuff, but I don't like brutally punishing games so much these days. I get enough brutal punishment at work.

I've played through Half-Life so many times I don't even remember if I played through Black Mesa 1.0 I know I waited for it to come out for ages, and that's pretty much what I remember about it. Hmmm.

This thing actually work for anyone? Doesn't work for me.
