Mah bodeh is readeh fer dis shit!

I really wonder what you'll be playing since you crap on every game that comes along.

Nah. I crap only on all the casual overhyped simplified console port AAA garbage. Most of that shit runs on a VESA local bus EGA card anyway so who cares.

If I buy a GTX 1080, I'll be using it to play The Witcher 3 EE/GOTY, E:D, the Crysis series (finally a card that should be able to handle it!), Dishonored, Bioshock Infinite, Skyrim with mods out da azz, Rise of the TR (when the GOTY sells for sub $10), Shtar Shitizen (Squadron 42 hopefully next year) and more games from my backlog that should hopefully finally run at 60fps without even budging with this card.

I won't use it for new releases like Mass Effect Andromeda since I have entirely stopped buying new full price games (when MEA GOTY will sell for sub $10 I'll probably run it on a GTX 1380). Fuck unfinished, buggy POS games with DLC and season pass scams. And fuck DRM. I will only rent full games (GOTY or other complete editions) from Steam, Origin, uPlay etc. for $10 max.

The only game I will make an exception for is The Witcher 3 GOTY since I can buy and actually own it for real on GOG.
CDP is the very last bastion of decency out there. The only big publisher you can actually buy a game from and it's yours.

I'm wondering when the GTX 1080Ti is supposed to be announced, as I would rather go for that instead of the GTX 1080... Any one have any ideas on a rough timescale?

Early 2017 if and when HBM2 memory becomes available in quantity.

With GDDR5X coming, I kinda doubt we'll see HBM2 on a consumer/gaming card this generation. Memory bandwidth is just not a bottleneck. Maybe that changes, we'll see.

AMD Vega will have HBM2 next year and GP100/Tesla P100 is also designed with HBM2 in mind. The consumer version of GP100 (possibly called GP102 according to the rumor mill) will ship with HBM2. There is really no doubt about it.
I'll post a YT video of me eating my hat (sans salt) if 1080Ti does not ship with HBM2 next year.

True that. The old cards just phase out. EOL. Hasta la vista, baby.
There hasn't been any huge price drops on still available previous gen parts in ages basically. Shit gets delisted and that's that.

Congrats on your special custom model from outer space then.

Hopefully the 1070 will be affordable and actually ship in quantity...

GTX 1070:

- Available June 10, 2016
- MSRP $379 for the base model or $449 for the Founder's Edition (probably better cooling and OC'ability)

The supposedly much better 1080 will be available by the end of this month for $599.

Still holding out for full Pascal though. Not this gimped, midrange shit. Early 2017 for that.

Yeah and $699 for the Founder's Edition which is going to more accurately reflect the prices for custom designs (which will ship quite a bit later this summer).

The "gimped midrange shit" is going to perform pretty well. Not everyone can or wants to afford a $800+ graphics card. Decent custom design big Pascal cards will probably not be available for less than $900 even.
A waste of money if you ask me because it is more efficient to buy and sell/replace mid-range every generation.
Volta mid-range which will probably kick big Pascal's butt will be here in 2018 already so to me it makes more sense to limit the losses from ownership by going for mid-range earlier in the cycle but if anyone has money to burn then moar powah to them, of course!

Battlefield 1 on a GTX 1080 = Pure Bliss!

I'm certain that the 1080 will be capable of many things but polishing big brown stinky turds?

Unlikely.

The disappointment with ANYTHING Dice/EA does is by default. Premium pass scam, P2W shortcut packs, bugs, cheats, exploits, you name it. It's just a pig with slightly different shades of lipstick every time but it's still always a fucking dirty retarded pig.

Guy's wearing a leatherneck coat AFAIC so must be USMC. The chances that the rumors about a BF in WW1 were accurate have risen by approximately 1.6%. Far future BF seems kind of unlikely given the clothing.

Semper Fi, maggots!

Monthly Active User (“MAU”) Definition: We monitor MAUs as a key measure of the overall size of our user base and their regular engagement with our portfolio of games. MAUs are the number of individuals who played a particular game in a given month. We calculate average MAUs in a period by adding the total number of MAUs in each of the months in a given period and dividing by the number of months in the period. An individual who plays two of our games would be counted as two users. For Activision Publishing and King MAUs, an individual who plays the same game on two platforms or devices in the relevant period would be counted as two users due to technical limitations. For Blizzard MAUs, an individual who plays the same game on two platforms or devices in the relevant period would be counted as one user.

So since the FOV is not an issue in any way...

This is the part where you explain how "larger screen elements" help people "aim and hit shit". This makes zero sense. Look how big the crosshair is i can't miss! Said no one, ever.

Dude... zoomed in perspective/scale and huge XXL characters + huge crosshairs = reflecting the huge hitboxes = easy to hit shit with little precision (ideal for console controllers).

I have personally scored many kills where I just shot in someone's general direction and where I was very surprised to see I got the kill. The hit boxes must be half the screen or something.

And that was without using an aimbot skill. With the retarded aimbot skills you don't even have to aim in the general direction. Just press the ability button and fire. Of course they made those abilities for consoles. This game is full of compromises aimed at pleasing the console crowd to make the game a rewarding frag fest even when played with an imprecise input device such as a controller.
It's super casual friendly because even complete drunk morons can get kills just by using the aimbot skill and fire button and then feel great about their "m4d 1337 skillz0rz".

I will not waste time on a racing game that has no support steering wheel. I am not even talking about mod support or other features... Play a racing game on my Playseat with a gamepad is ultra retard.

I will paid $10-20USD if MS made this with a proper wheel support (using DirectInput not XInput) and available in Steam (plus other digital distribute that others care). But not this half-a$$ sh!t even if it is free...

How do you launch a racing game with zero wheel support?

Simple.

Step 1: You hire a bunch of monkies who fell off their trees one time too many (i.e. really dumb monkies).

Step 2: You name your company Microsoft.

where everything is extra large and zoomed in so you can hit shit with a controller

Did you play this game for 2 seconds? Not even long enough to get to the options menu? Oh wait no, you didn't even play it at all... you just looked at screenshots.

Overwatch supports a full 90degree FOV just like every PC FPS should.

It definitely needs a viewmodel slider to make the guns take up less of the screen, but the idea that this game is "consolized" because of the FOV is just willful ignorance.

Yawn. Yeah I played the game for more than two minutes. Yeah my FoV slider was maxed out (the pre-selected value was 103 for my resolution so maybe YOU should get a clue about the options in the game because it goes well beyond 90). Yeah my graphics setting were at 'epic' with a steady 60fps.

If you can not see that everything (crosshairs, hit boxes, HUD elements, fonts, messages etc.) in the game is STILL super-extra XXXXXLLLLL large and mega-zoomed in for the console peasants then I really don't know what to say.
Compare this to a more PC-focused game like ArmA or even BF4 where it is actually challenging to hit shit because of the way more realistic scale of everything.

Overwatch is simplified casual garbage for the console kiddies by design so kiddies slouching on their couch while half asleep in their candy bar coma can still score some kills just from shooting in a general direction. Come on. This is plain as day to see here. Almost the same as the new Doom MP but even more extreme in OW than in id's game.

Why would they do that after Obsidian shat all over Bethesda and complained like whiny little bitches about the hardships of working under such horrible slave drivers like Bethesda?

Not gonna happen.

For me Galaxies was fun until NGE revamp. I actually remember being a white crystal scavenger on Dagobah and felt like a fisherman coming back to the starport and jedies paying handsomely for my catch as soon as I arrived.

You remember some very weird stuff... are you on drugs or just booze?


Hint: There was no Dagobah in SWG.
