I am pretty much done with anything labeled Nvidia including used 1070 cards.

Well my previous 5 year old card was getting long in the tooth, so I really couldn't wait for AMD's response.

Anyway, my point was given the higher MSRPs of the high end 20xx cards, the 2060 6GB will probably be more than the launch price of the 1060 6GB, which was $250 MSRP. So, say $300.00 MSRP as a guess.

Early rumor shows the 2060 to be 6% slower than the 1070.
Toms Hardware Article

So, a used 1070 at below new 1060 6GB MSRP is a lot of bang for the buck. Especially if you are still a 1080p gamer like me, and have no real desire to go 4k.

After the crypto-currency crash... picked up a slightly used GTX1070 on Ebay for $231.00 shipped.

Latest Christmas discount I saw for the 1070 was $305, new.

The best way to protest nVidia's ridiculous pricing is to go after the used last gen higher end cards from private owners.

I hope he pulls off something fairly good. I think he's been punished enough for Daiktana and his dumb words. Only something decent could redeem him, and so far he hasn't accomplished it.

So is this DRM-ish like Steam, Uplay, and Origin where you have to have thier application running with the game? Or is it like GOG where you can opt to download the games and run them without runing thier app (Galaxy).

I pretty much TRY to do everything through GOG.

I had Steam first, so I still ocassionaly get a game from them that I can't get on GOG.

That said... I wouldn't sign up for another DRM store... ever.

I don't regret this Early Access purchase, even though it goes against my personal views of not to buy until it's done. I'm also eagerly awaiting Xen, as I personally enjoyed those levels of the original game. This trailer makes it look great and I fully intend on playing through Xen on the big screen TV, Steam Controller in hand, all lights off.

Well... the reason I'm waiting is twofold... 1. It takes them a really long time to get anything done (not a criticism... just a fact), and 2. I don't want to spoil the experience of the complete product when it's done.

I guess I'm one of the few that actually liked Xen.

I will gladly purchase Black Mesa when it is complete.

At what point can we all get refunds for non delivery? I paid my $35 back in 2014 and the completion date keeps getting pushed back indefinitely. If they still haven't released a working game by 2024 can we all get refunds? How long can they go on like this, making more ships and not finishing the game?

You pretty much can't get a refund from crowdfunding. You are making an investment (Not pre-purchasing the product)... if the company goes belly up trying to make the product... you lost your investment. Period.

About the only way refunds have been issued are either outright scams (zero to no effort in making said product), or creating something completely different than was initially pitched.

CIG definitely has more than enough evidence of trying to create the game... so you can't get them on that.

I think there was a period of time that you could get a refund because they changed what they initially pitched... but that deadline expired a long time ago.

So, as everyone else has said... no you can't get a refund. You need to understand the difference between investing in a game vs. pre-purchasing one.

Upon further inspection, these are loafers this company does direct ports to modern systems, not updates or remakes or new sequels. My earlier rant wasn't applicable and I should have looked into it first.

They do both direct ports and remakes... well they are working on ONE remake after already doing a direct port... and that is System Shock.

How about finishing the fucking System Shock REMAKE (not the enhanced edition) that had to be started over, first?

What a coinkydink... I just installed Vivaldi yesterday to see how it matured, and I like it. Running with uBlock Origin and uBlock Origin Extra.

It's a good "Google Free" Chrome Option (once you turn off prediction services etc.). Also, unlike Chromium (on Windows), Vivaldi will at least let you know there's an update out there and install from that pop-up.

Tried Brave too.... too limited in extensions and not enough granular control for blocking / whitelisting... so not mature enough yet.

GOG version?

I'm really trying not to buy games from Steam anymore, mainly because I'd rather support GOG with my business.

Definitely not worth the $200+ over the 1070 MSRP.

Of course I just bought my 1070 for $230 used, which makes it an awesome bang for buck.

Why compare it to the 1070? Pricewise it's a replacement for the 1080, not the 1070.

I agree, it has awful bang for the buck, but so did the 1080 and some here still bought it.

Because I'm comparing directly to the performance boost over last gen... the extra 200+ for what you get isn't worth it, IMO. If it was like a 2x boost... then yeah... but it's not. We're used to getting a decent boost each gen (within the same-ish model as the last gen) with a similar price point for the next gen. Especially since the last gen is 2 years old. Is the RTX 2070 a decent performance boost? Yes. Is it worth a $200+ premium over the last gen? Hell No. The techspot averages a 27% increase in performance compared to the 1070, but the MSRP price is 57% increase ($380 -> $599). Even $380 to $499 is a 31% increase in price. So the price is way out of wack.

What one is really paying for is early access / future proofing of ray tracing, which never pays off. By the time there will be enough ray tracing games to support, the tech will be in 2nd or 3rd gen from the current RTX 20xx.

Nvidia is smoking some good shit with this pricing.

Well... unlike the xbone I don't have to be logged in to do anything... matter of fact the only time I login to Sony is to buy and download a single player game... otherwise I am always signed out. Prime is it's own account and so is Hulu.

That said.. I already set all the privacy stuff to maximum a long time ago when I first set it up.
