wtf is wrong with nvidia, they can't even get the cards they have now, out successfully.
No I'm not bitter I still don't have my rtx 3000 card yet!
And I still don't have my 6800XT. Something is rotten, and not just in Denmark, I tell you. There just isn't that big a market for $600-$1500 3d cards...but they can't even fill even that much demand.

Another prime example why Tim Sweeney and Epic Games are the only ones to root for in this saga.

Why would I bother with shortcuts when they're most likely going to launch their respective stores/launchers/drm fronts? The only Epic game I play regularly starts the Epic game store automatically when using the shortcut so I start Epic launcher first usually for any updates.
Right, they both accomplish the same thing.
My method takes one step (the second step is automated and hands-off), your way takes two steps where you have to wait a little while in-between the first and second step.
Why would you voluntarily choose the more convoluted way? How is it more convenient?

How many Blues users actually launch the store before launching the game they already own? As opposed to having a shortcut for the game directly?
You'd think that most, if not all here would just launch games directly to forgo the marketing that happens anytime you open a store to play a game (even if you disable the popups, you're far more likely to browse other games or checkout current deals when interacting with a store, rather than a game shortcut).
Slick - launches games directly via windows shortcuts and never looks/cares what store its on other than when purchasing. You?

It's a Polygon article obviously they're going to construe anything that isn't part of their groupthink as racist and bigoted. Never mind the fact that the Japanese are probably the most xenophobic people on the planet. Never mind that every country has its own organized crime - the Yakuza as it applies to Gibson's work. This just the typical snowflake whinging. Just another assault on white men who aren't white guilty liberal extremists. It's clear they've never actually read anything by Gibson or Stephenson. Their works are the very opposite of what the idiot author is contending.

This game completely replaced my Factorio addiction
That's high praise. I wouldn't go that far but it does have potential. From what I've played, I don't see the game having much replayability at the moment but that will probably change in the future as they add more features. Mod support would help a lot as well. The English translation is hilariously bad. It doesn't really affect the game, it's just funny hearing badly translated tutorials being read verbatim. I still prefer Factorio and Satisfactory but those games have had years of polish and refinement. I'm sure DSP will get there too and I'm looking forward to future updates. It's great.

They did add a zoom to the revamped AoE 2, more so than AoE 1. I haven't tried their revamped AoE III yet. Anyways, I don't see why they wouldn't add it to the latest installment.

I am happy to keep removing Wishlist items from Steam because of Epic free games.

None of the games on my wishlist are on sale... yay
Also.. wow.. what did people smoke to put Battlefield 5 in visual DESIGN category? Since when is "reality shooter" a design?

Follow up. It took 16 minutes with 30-50 second pauses between bursts of download activity maxing out my 1Gb connection. I'm guessing Steam is encrypting the game in chunks. Also, it says there is an update available but hitting the up arrow on it causes it to pause and then move right back to update available status.

Sweet, I've never seen "The Living Daylights."
The first 50 minutes have been pure bond and I got 80 minutes left.

Don't know what you guys are talking about re: PvP
If someone kills you, you simply select "Parlay" and they can't attack you again for 10 minutes. You always respawn within 100-150m and there's no penalty.
You can also press "L" to bring up the player menu and select "defensive", which means your character has like 200% HP when being shot by another player, so it's hard to grief you.
But again, if someone kills you, just "parlay" and you become immune for 10 minutes.
I kept pwning this one loud-mouthed hillbilly over and over, and he refused to hit Parlay, and just told me I had to stop, or else he was reporting me to rockstar for griefing. I'm like LOL have you EVER played GTA online!? Also, the game devs have already implremented a feature in the game to do exactly what you want, which you refuse to use... and now you want to waste someone's time reporting me? Fucking Karens.

Those with a current AMD and drivers...
First 6800XT and 3080 are very close, each has their strengths that have been measured.
There are some things that I really like with NVidia software that I use all the time or often, does AMD have any equivalent?
#1 In NV Control Panel I can set all games to run at 40% Sharpness (I can choose off to 100%) why this is important to me is we all know TAA will cause bluriness and still a lot of games themselves don't add the sharpness back in. This feature is a godsend to me, it makes TAA tits. And games that do have the sharpness the 40% doesn't over do it. Does AMD have anything like that?
#2 GeForce Softwar Alt-Z, you can go into Game Filter for quite a few of the big games and adjust color, brightness, HDR effect, Sharpen Effects etc. It is basically re-shade built in. No fuss, no muss and there is almost always a tweak here or there that I can make a game simply look better. This one is more nice to have over #1.
I know there are other Nvidia things they do, but I think #1 for me could be the biggest. Is there a good place to see all the AMD software features they have?
