It's barely even playable in vr.

At all, some HUD elements send crosseyed, certain things only rendered in one eye.

And that's if you consider limiting to 45 and motion vectoring on.
And you barely have the headroom to run that, in horizons there's plenty headroom of you run 45 which heavily decreases the motion vector artefacting.

The alpha was not playable with a 1080ti in vr, not even close.

And the release is just barely playable.
Problem is, since the last time i tested the alpha i have also upgraded to a 3090.
This thing is BARELY PLAYABLE, on a 3090.

It also really doesn't matter.
The reason to get a soundcard is because you think you need better digital to analog and you are the foaming at the ears type audiophile that seems to believe that any audio signal is 'unpure" or tainted when it's been through an HDMI cable.

And yes those people exist.


This article of course is nothing but "Hey 35-40 something's, remember soundcards. They still exist, but you don't really need one, but advertisers wanted us to remind you that they exist"

Not sure how I feel about that considering i just bought 3090.

Why did i buy one.
I saw it in stock, so "shut-up-take-money.gif"
Ten minutes later the whole stock of 20 was gone.

Like everybody else I had my eye on a 3080, but those haven't been seen since before Christmas.

I guess my current justification is that games will eventually use more than 10.5GB vram.

I've been trying to get into this for two months but all I can see is a rip of Deus Ex... from 20 years ago. Darn it.
My first thought when I played it.

Was.

This reminds me of Deus Ex: invisible war. The terrible sequel.

I really don't ever see myself playing this again, wish I could trade it in at gamestop.
Like I did with invisible war.

It's a simple solution.

Don't buy their games for full price.

I think the only 'game' that I paid even near $70 for was Heatblurs F-14 middle for dcs.

And DCS has got sales for half off every few months.

Yes it must most certainly be horrible because TorTorden and a few other gripey Bluesnewsers say it is.

Doom eternal.

Seemed lighter on the former and stuck on the latter.

The quick gore kill in 2016 was a nice bonus addition.

Somehow the design by focus group thought it was a good idea to add another 665 more bullshit stuff on top of it.
And suddenly it's a requirement to make fluffy kills rather than an occasional bonus.

Utterly killed.

And where did the humongous spaceship hub come from?

Nah this was a messy turd wrapped in doom wrapping.
Happy to forget it ever existed.

In other news.

Amazon states it is committed to "Making more money"

This comes as a surprise to all pundits who are shocked they say, shocked !

You sound like a friend of mine who keeps spouting this anti facebook vitriol,
And yet insists on using WhatsApp as his main way of communicating.

Facebook aren't doing anything they haven't learned from Google and they are less scummy than Amazon.

Good luck if you intend to never use any online service that has no affiliation with any of these companies.

Honestly after finishing it with a non 100% playthrough.

The bugs i encountered albeit "immersion" breaking honestly have the game a hefty dose of a whimsy and comedy it lacked greatly.

I honestly think if they patched all the bugs out it would be left as an empty, dull, and morose to the point of angsty teen emo whining.

Seriously, everyone, even the 'old guard' characters dress like what I would describe as "neon goth" and with maturity of under 20 something
Yeah we get it, capitalism have turned evil and we have all just allowed it to happen.
(And I agree it has in reality)

But, yeah.

Honestly if they fix the game it will only be more boring, with a huge pile of features and mechanics nobody ends up needing.

The entire crafting mechanic for example is entirely superfluous.
Why would I spend expensive items to upgrade an old gun when the thug I just killed dropped something much better?

It's not just the US.

I was often presented with death threats just cause I was getting B's and A-'s on tests.

Apparently to some, barely paying attention in school is a capital offence.

And that was the 90's.

Looks like they are just out to establish a social media marketing for all their star wars related stuff pumped out of disney.

Personally I consider star wars the lesser interesting IP in the LucasArts portfolio.

An exceedingly broken unfinished game is sells like hot cakes, that qualifies as a stupid fad to me.

One of the all time longest and well orchestrated Hype Trains in the history of games.
This will be a case studied by marketing droids for some time.
Expect a flood of low effort cash grab clones in the not too distant future.

Problem with 5 year long hype trains is you actually have to develop something for five years.
