NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080-3080 Ti- more VRAM, way faster and CHEAPER?!

Well duh on the "faster"... Just about every new gen is or they wouldn't sell.

But cheaper? I'll believe it when I see it. (Although I have to admit that the GTX 1660 Super is actually a reasonable priced upgrade from the last (GTX 1060) gen, but they weren't out at launch of this gen.

Never, will I install Origin.

Oh yes you will. What's more, you'll do it, and you'll love it. If you're going to pass up a whole year's worth of games for $30 - with more coming all the time - you're cuckoo bananas! That is thee best deal in gaming hands down.
Only if there are Origin games you want to play.

Which there isn't. The last EA game I bought was Dragon Age Origins (Which didn't have origin 'the drm launcher' at the time, although you still had to make an EA account for the DLC)... and I re-purchased it when it went on sale on GOG.

Haven't purchased an EA game since. Well I take that back... I have purchased a few other older ones on GOG.

So does that mean Steam is the lesser of two evils?

Not really. Steam is the only DRM launcher I have currently, and even that eventually will be removed when I build a new rig. I've replaced a majority of my library with GOG. There will be a few games I will have to "No-Steam crack" when I put everything on a new machine, but I can always prove I own them by logging into steam without the launcher.... or... For newer games I may just put Steam in a VM to purchase /download... then crack them to put on my gaming rig (sans any launcher).

Nah, we all use both and afaik it was just a rallying cry to help GOG.
They have been dumping all their money into developing Cyberpunk and their budget is tight or at least that was my impression.

Just thought it was funny to make it snarky, alliterative and allegorical by removing the comma. Paperbag

This.

...and I will gladly remove the comma since someone else is now using it as a sig. If this starts a trend and helps GOG... then hell yes!

Aren't these the asshats that promised offline in a kickstarter, then ended up requiring an internet connection even for single player?

Or am I thinking of some other space game?

Also, Texas law doesn't say you can't sign a union worker under a collective bargaining agreement. There are all kinds of unions in Texas. You just can't make membership mandatory for employment, and any collective bargaining agreement in Texas is going to reflect that.

I think Mr. Baker refused to work for gearbox, not gearbox refused to hire him, according to the gearbox statement.

Anybody sucessfully suing Randy and Gearbox makes me grin from ear to ear.

Yes, I dispise them that much after DNF and ACM debacles... Way to kill 2 awesome franchises in one fell swoop! ...and I never liked /disired that cel animated crap Borderlands series. Pretty much the only thing they did well was the original Half-Life expansions, but you can't be judged on 20+ year old sucess.

...and his hypocritical rant on MS years ago and Windows was going to be a walled garden and throw all the competition out, that didn't happen and he built his walled garden. He was projecting on MS what he wanted to do himself. Those are my two.

Yeah, that is fairly hypocritical... squawking about wanting the platform to remain open, Windows Store is bad m'kay, etc. etc., and then shiznitting out exclusives for EGS as if that wasn't a "closed off system".

Not that I personally give a shiznit about EGS exclusives (in general)... but the Hypocrisy by Sweeny is fairly apparent.

Already have Metro...DRM Free.... From GOG.

I'd rather pay for DRM Free and remain launcher-less and telemetry-less (At least as far as my devices are concerned... the store, of course is free to keep track of all my purchases and figure out my interests from that)... thank you.

Well at least this doesn't LOOK as fucked up as Underworld Acendant. (Otherside Entertainment screwed that up royally)

I'm still waiting on the System Shock 1 remake from Nightdive Studios (Never played 1,and I don't want to spoil it with the "enhanced edition").

I absolutely loved System Shock 2... and no... the Bioshock Series doesn't even come close as a "spiritual successor"....Prey (2017) is the closest thing to a "spiritual successor" to the System Shock series, IMO. If you liked Prey 2017, you'll love the System Shock series.

Agreed, but AMD has only been able to really compete with nVidia in th "bang for buck scenerios" instead of top end... and sometimes they don't do that well at that.

I've not followed the tale of Bioware for a long time now; is there anyone notable left from before the EA purchase?

There may be a few, but the large majority of all the great guys and gals there who made and wrote all these awesome games (aka, the so-called 'Bioware Magic', which was just fantastic people who managed to make great games despite their incompetent-as-fuck management) have left.

It's sad, really. Bioware has been my favorite developer for probably 15 years.

There is no Bioware. It was killed long ago by EA. They're just keeping the name / brand like they still do with "Origin"... and that's not even a studio anymore.

Another one bites the dust.

I haven't bought an EA game since the Origin store went up, and never will again (Unless it's on GOG).
