While I think it's a little silly to boycott GTA V and RDR 2 because of a delayed release on PC, it's still a crap move on their part and his right.
To be fair I'd also become tired of the formula. I didn't complete GTA IV because it just became too repetitive, not to mention all the performance issues related to the appalling port. Then there was the refusal to port RDR to PC.

Why are you saying it has "performance issues?"

GTA5 PC's performance is amazing. Solid 4K60 with EVERYTHING maxed out. The framerate NEVER drops below 60 (course it never goes above 60 so not sure there). The game is beautiful.

This is all fine if there is a very negligible performance hit. Otherwise in practice it is a tech demo.
Currently the game is not taxing higher end systems. I have a GTX 1080 Ti and with the latest build I'm getting up to 140fps - there are still framerate drops but the introduction of Object Container Streaming has dramatically improved performance. Given that the game is expected to be developed for a decade after release (or as long as there is interest) it makes sense to look for future-proof solutions. Note how this was all running in real-time without any observed slowdown, which bodes well.

I have to disagree with you on that. On my machine with high-settings at 4K, Star Citizen hovers between ~20-30 FPS. For comparison, here's the frame rate for big open-world games in 4K at their highest settings. GTA5 (60), AC Origins (60), AC Odyssey (50), and Wildlands (40). Star Citizen needs optimization, but understandable that it doesn't have it in its current state.

While I agree the money may have been better spent, Orson Krennic looks awesome in a cloak in space. Also, too: Darth Vader.

Can't believe you forgot Lando Calrissian. Yeah! I want a realistic looking physics cape!

Personally I can't wait to see what they've done in the realm of magic/nano-tech spell effects. Within this cloth-sim world of theirs, I'm gonna look smashing in my sorceror's outfit as I clamber out of my star fighter tossing lightning bolts and fireballs from my hands as I export democracy throughout the galaxy one amazingly-detailed hurtful spell after another while sporting the latest in star-wizard fashionware.

Isn't that a stretch goal?

Bought CMK32GX4M4B4000C19R. That's the only RAM that I'm aware of that takes full advantage of DDR4 OVERCLOCKING on my motherboard so that I can go beyond 4000 MHz. I should be good on RAM for awhile.

Updated system specs:
CPU: I7-8700

RAM: Corsair Vengeance LPX 32GB DDR4 4000MHz (waiting for delivery)

So I may wait then to buy on PC.

BTW it's not hard to find out who the person is. Google "linkedin programmer rockstar leeds beaterator iphone." First link ---

Programmer Jay Butler from Sheffield, United Kingdom

It's not doxing if Google indexes it and you know how to use Google and you share public indexed information from Google.

These reviews are ridiculous! For example:

https://www.pcgamer.com/core-i9-9900k-review/

"INTEL CORE I9-9900K IS THE NEW CHAMPION OF THE CONSUMER CPU WORLD"

First item in the AGAINST column is "High price for minor gains." Seriously?! Then it's not the new champion of consumer CPU world. It's the new champion for enthusiast and hobby builders. Such dishonesty.

Silly me, I thought they were going to show different physics models for the space ships.

It's a space fantasy game so you would expect light fighters to handle differently than large bulk cruisers, even in "zero G" space.

For that you want this panel. In short, the devs added in-game tools to quickly tune values for all ships thereby providing more realistic handling and inertia in space and on planets.

Yup. I think the more impressive part is the real layered clothing as seen on the walking Tusken Raider at the end. There are many applications for that tech throughout the game from small decorations all the way up to core gameplay mechanics (e.g., mission involves hiding under a tarp to spy on a group of mercs, but have to be careful not to move the tarp else risk alerting the mercs).

Admiral Ackbar? It's a tarp!

Passing. An 18% gain isn't worth $500 plus the cost of a new mobo.

26% gain between 1080TI and 2080TI.

Disappointing new gen.

Backed for $115 for the Origin 325A and SQ42. Did it primarily because of Derek Smart's spiteful nature towards the project and secondarily because I have a computer now capable of playing it relatively smoothly in 4K. I thought even he would be impressed by this trailer's tech and progress. Instead, what I see is a person hell-bent on bringing it down no matter what. I don't trust Chris, and I continue to have my doubts. However, I do want to see the project launch, and I'm not so rigid that I refuse to back it today. If the project fails, this time I'm out a hundred bucks and ONLY that much.

For 1080Ti owners the only real upgrade is the expensive as fuck RTX 2080Ti.

Yup. I'll buy better RAM and CPU. I have a I7-8700. The "K" variant is rank #1 based on user reviews. I may buy another 1080TI if prices drop into the $300-$400 range. A 1080TI SLI had noticeable frame rate improvements.
