I'm setting up a new rig before this, I already have most the parts. i5-9600k, EVGA 2060 Super Black, 32gb of G.Skill Ripjaw V & 1tb MVMe Samsung 970 EVO.

It'll be substantially better than recommended specs for 1080p, so hopefully I'll be able to turn on high specs with RTX on and DLSS 2.0 and get decent frames. I cant wait.

The Kingdoms of Amalur re-release? Really? From what I understand it's the same game with some very minor visual tweaks. I mean it was an OK game, but still.

Nice to see Divinity: Original Sin 2 in there, one of the best cRPGs of recent years. Good game to play while waiting for that Baldur's Gate 3 early access lol.

Yea coming out the same week as Cyberpunk would have severely hurt their sales.

I've no plans to immediately pick the game up. I mean the series needed a reboot, Origins was good, Odyssey had fun gameplay but the copy-pasta nature of its design made it tiring to say the least. People have been clamoring for a Viking AS game for years, I just hope it learns from Odyssey's mistakes. I'll pick it up when its ~$30 on sale on steam.

I am quite enjoying Control. It's not a 10/10 game, but I'm enjoying the powers and I am a fan of Remedy's more slow-burn 'weird' horror games. Loved Alan Wake 1 & 2.

Yea I expect the first post-release content to be the multiplayer. I'm hoping it's something that allows for emergent gameplay and storytelling, with tools fans can use to create stories to tell within the game world.

All the anti-competitive unfairness arguments Epic is making against Apple is exactly what they're doing to the PC games market. I'm no fan of apple, but the hypocrisy is palpable.

So fuck them and fuck Sweeney.

I'll pick this up sometime down the line when it has more content and is less buggy. I understand the 12+ hour single player is actually surprisingly good, but the multiplayer is buggy as hell and the maps are pretty tiny and poorly designed.

I wont even get into ISP caps and the size of games or patches (dumped big ISP and went small company with unlimited and better speed).

Thankfully my provider (Charter) doesn't use data caps, but they are actively exploring them. It's up to my state (NY) on whether they'll allow it because thankfully they are fairly strict about these things. Charter wasn't even allowed to buy our previous top provider without a guaranteed substantial jump in speeds. They delivered on that, but not to the level they were suggestion, because of course.

Data caps are bullshit anyway.

Sounds about right to me Idonyo.

The shear size of game installs are growing so fast that I'm building a new system and I bought a 1tb m.2 SSD for the sole reason that my 500gb SSD just isn't enough. Between the software I use nearly daily, the many gb of art assets I have because of my job, 2-3 games is all I can install before I'm at less than 50gb of free space.

Back in my day I was the remote control.

Same here man. One parent would tell me "Go up there and change the channel".

The other would say "Don't sit so close to the TV, you'll ruin your eyes."

I already wore coke-bottle glasses, how much worse could they get? lol

Sorry, Millennials, only Boomers will know how to operate this television.

In all this Millennial vs. Boomer poop throwing, everyone seems to have forgotten that Gen X exists. You know.. the so called 'slacker' generation?

My family had a TV like this until I was like 10 or so when the TV remote became a thing.

The quiz brought back memories (10/11 on the quiz), like tape over the slot on the VHS tape to record over it. Heh when I had my first apt I had an old, huge ass vhs system (like 1980 version). It wouldn't rewind so we used a bent tablespoon for faster rewinds. My mother once told me while she was chewing my ass out to clean my apt after a party... "I was your age once too, I know what that bent spoon is for!' I laughed, she thought we were freebasing or something. I was like 'It's to rewind tapes on this ancient player! She was like 'oh..." We still laugh at that one.

The story is scant on details, but I hope it's not like Pokemon GO. This seems to be the wrong time for a game that encourages people to go all over the place both indoors and out.

Let's be honest, It's CD Projekt. It won't be out until late 2022. :p

The number of exclusives that Epic has garnered definitely seems to have dropped.

From what I've read, a lot of the companies last year who went with epic exclusivity lost a lot of money in the end. For example, apparently Control didn't do so well on PC, despite Tencent getting $10 million from Epic Games. In fact, the month it released saw a 20 year low on game sales. This helps explain why they are pushing the new $40 ultimate edition so hard, to the point that only the new edition gets a 'next gen upgrade'.A.k.a. PC level graphics - only it won't even hit that benchmark, because of the lack of ray tracing hardware.

It's the same reason EA is going back on steam. Because they were actually losing money by having their own platform despite Steams 30% cut, because they simply weren't getting nearly as many eyeballs on their own platform compared to what they do on Steam.


As to the trailer, I fail to see how Knives Out is particularly 'hit man'. I'll buy Hitman 3 when it's $15 on steam for the complete edition.

I getcha brother. I'm in the midst of buying hardware for a new system and I broke down and bought Win10 specifically because every year more and more games require it or DX12.

I bit the bullet, so too can you.

VtM - Bloodlines is one of my favorite games of all time, to the point that I still play it fairly regularly (thanks in no small part to an extremely dedicated community that has made great new content for it). So if they have the funding to delay again in order to make it's sequel/spiritual successor as good as they possibly can, I'm all for it.

The last 2 Doom games had that too.

At least Doom 2016 and Doom Eternal had astoundingly good music, the music in this trailer is terri-bad. But, trailer music is quite rarely the music in the actual game so we'll have to see in the end. I rather enjoyed Shadow Warrior, though SW2 was terrible. So I'll keep my eye on this one.
