Notice that none of the extensions are what everyone really uses... ad blockers, script blockers, etc. They don't want to spread the word on those.

Can we get a SOLID Duke Nukem sequel? Let's forget FOREVER ever happened. In this day in age, it shouldn't be hard to make a proper shooter sequel based on something as nutty as Duke Nukem was...

I'd settle for a Black Mesa style modern remake of Duke 3D like Interceptor was going to do with "Duke Nukem 3D: Reloaded" but Gearbox put the kabosh on it... which is why I dispise Gearbox to this day (along with fucking up Forever and Aliens) and won't give them a dime.

Don't get too excited - this is the same company that released the abysmal Underworld Ascendant.

Would love for this to be an amazing return to the series, but I'm really concerned about the ability of the team to deliver.

Mostly a different team and more money... but it's the Unity engine, which is scary enough.

Meh, the time has come and gone for System Shock. The ideas behind the original were mostly fresh and new to the mainstream at the time of its release but now they've turned in to a trope and are somewhat passe.

Blasphemy!

Yeah... another "DRM launcher" on your machine that slurps up telemetry to yet another company, is always a good idea... especially if it is the ONLY way to purchase a particular game.

Condolences. It is always difficult to put a pet down, but letting them suffer is worse. 14.5 years is definitely a good long life for a dog.

Take a look at this HD Texturepack
https://www.hardocp.com/article/2015/12/17/played_quake_lately

http://quakehdremix.blogspot.com

Supposedly a recent nVidia driver fixed what a previous one broke

The HD texture pack looks great.
Unforunately Wrath is still a little "pixely" if you look at the static screenshots.

Maybe somone will make an HD texture pack for Wrath, or 3DRealms / Killpixel will offer a an HD DLC.

I do also have Amazon Prime, but that's hit or miss on whether you'll have to pay extra (in my case, whatever I'm looking for is almost always an extra charge).

Depends... Like Cable you can susbcribe to other Channels on Prime.

We order so much stuff from Amazon, that Prime pays for itself (wnd we don't buy non-prime movies or shows.)

Since I'm a gear-head... I pay $5 extra a month for the MotorTrend channel on Prime... and that covers 90%of my vieweing.

The wife... I got her Hulu too... so she watches my gear-head stuff, plus other stuff on prime and hulu (ad free).

The thing is, we go enjoy our motorsport toys on the weekends so the only time for TV really is 2-3 hours in the evenings during the work week. IF the weather is nasty, I usually play a game on the PC while she watches her crap on Prime or Hulu.

The 6 dumbest cases against cord-cutting.
I would love to cut the cord, but the most important factor to me is being able to skip advertisements. I can't fucking STAND commercials. With a cable DVR, I timeshift everything I watch and just skip over all the commercials.

Unfortunately, most of the crap channels have 30% commercials (8+ minutes within a 30 minute show and super frequent breaks, 18 or so minutes in an hour show)... which is "a lot of skipping to do".

1. I'd rather not deal with skipping at all (Too lazy)
2. I'm not paying $70-$100 a month for commercials (skippable or not)

There is no Bioware. Only a shell that EA has thoroughly scooped out and thrown away.

DragonAge Origins is pretty much the last remnant of that company.

R.I.P Origin
R.I.P BullFrog
R.I.P Maxis
R.I.P Westwood
R.I.P Mythic
R.I.P Pandemic
R.I.P Phenomic
R.I.P Bioware (Although not shut down yet)

Trades blows with a 1070, for $280, and has 2GB less RAM.

Still glad I got my slightly used 1070 for $230, which is factory OC'd a little.

That said, if I would have waited for a new card to upgrade from my previous GTX680... this probably would have been it (when on sale below MSRP).

1080p gaming on a 27" monitor... I have no desire to buy a new monitor nor do I feel the need to increase resolution to 1440p / 4k. I pretty much refuse to spend over $250 for a card ever again.

Oh boy, the RTX effects are horrible...

Has any of the reviews stated that? The one's I've looked at so far found RTX nice to look at. Static screens may not be a good indicator for us.

Well the screenshots on DSO gaming look horrid.

The screenshots on Tech Powerup... it's about a 50 50 shot on which ones are better.

So, RTX isn't as horrid as I originally thought, but DLSS looks like crap at a stand still.... would need to see it in motion, really.

Oh boy, the RTX effects are horrible... Why waste FPS for such an abomination? Or money.

Especially the DLSS... looks like everything is motion blurred... yuck.
And of the RTX only screenshots... there was only one indoor shot that looked better... the rest were better with RTX off.

Super glad I picked up my slightly used 1070 for $230 and didn't waste my money on this overly expensive crap.

As for the game... I'll wait until it is on GOG. I did enjoy the first two games.

99% sure Spector wasn't really involved with SS2. He wasn't an employee of Irrational and only credited as an Outside Producer, iirc. Near certain Levine confirmed it in this very forum.

I never claimed he was part of SS2. He was the Producer of SS1.
Looking Glass team split up after going belly up... Ken Levine (and others) formed Irrational games and made SS2. Warren (and others) went to Ion Storm and made Deus Ex.

Between MMO burnout and a saturated market... MMO's appear to be fairly dead. At least in comparison to 10 years ago. Pretty much no way to charge a subscription in this day and age.

Of course, I have a bit of bias on that perspective since I have heavy burnout.
