Sorry, but ray tracing is still a gimmick at this stage. I have watched a bevy of games that claim to have it and the aesthetics aside they have no effect on gameplay and in many games, you have to look hard to even notice it. On top of that unless you have a $1300 graphics card it majorly affects game performance. Nvidia's 3000 cards are supposed to make major improvements to such, but I still do not see the need to pay Nvidia's premium pricing for it.

It is an absolute gimmick right now, agreed. I do not doubt the potential, we are not remotely there yet. The tdlr on my recent update - got a big discount, two weeks ago, on a 2080 MSI Gaming X Trio Super through work for personal use so upgraded from a 1070 Strix. Running a 6600k @ 4.5 - looking to upgrade with Zen3 or Comet Lake in 2020.

I enjoyed Quake 2 RTX for the nostalgia, the RTX reminded me of 1997/98 when I went from originally playing the game in Software @ 480x360 (i think), to getting a Voodoo2 and playing it in Open GL (800x600). Absolutely epic. The RTX diversion was fun for about 3 hours. It looks great, albeit a little blurry due to one of the noise filters that, if you turn off, destroys the game. If they remaster Return to Castle Wolfenstein RTX I will be there yesterday.

I have played around with other things with RayTracing, not that there is much that interests me specifically. It's not there, at all. Knowing the 2080TI won't provide any massive bumps in performance either (15% maybe for $650+ CAD more?), for now RTX has been a marketing gimmick and may well continue into the 3000 series unless there is a massive bump in performance while keeping the price of cards the same (which is terrible), or less (yeah right lol) AND support for RTX substantially increases with developers.

Only surprise, for me, would be if Epic stands their ground and actually keeps him perma-banned for life.

Quinn, Rkykker and Diablofans all had Q&A's with devs today.

Here's Diablofans Q&A

There are some exciting points, there are some concerning points. More panels tomorrow about World Lore and a bunch of other stuff.

Edit: The DiabloFans one is a community Q&A, not one they conducted themselves but they did ask questions. I was watching Rhykker's stream of the floor demo and started laughing when one of the game's leads just invaded his stream. Rhykker did a good job, the lead was on there for a long time - but sadly a lot of his answers were half answers. To be expected though.

Cautiously optimistic...

The guys post caused a bit of a stir in the Diablo subreddit last night - every one of his previous leaks were all 100% true. People suspect this was a paid leak based on his previous post history.

At work, obviously on my phone redditting - apparently the game is 30% off on Steam right now. May pull the trigger tonight and get this one done before RDR2 next week, been on the list since launch and now I assume they've done some fixes and tweaks to make it better.

Slightly misleading title there... Maybe put an "Ex-" before the word Diablo

I am very curious about PoE 4.0 - they're brewing something ridiculous.

Yeah, reading that official statement nothing in it sounds like "delay" at all. The wording sounds a LOT more like "cancel" to me. Wonder why, though? Was it just not enough of a step forward? Do they want to focus on BG3? If it was not a complete mess I'd think they'd take the cash even if the reviews were meh.

I base the following on really nothing but feeling. Wizards of the Sword Coast have insane expectations of both the quality of the game, and sales, to have given Larian the go-ahead on BG3. I have to imagine there would have been a BG3 long long ago but Wizards have held out. Read many stories, heard many rumours of companies pining for the license to make the game over the years but nothing coming of it.

I think Larian is in full BG3 mode. There may not have been a Baldur's Gate game for two decades, but I'll be damned if all eyes won't be on this one as release comes closer. Also, there could have been problems with *EDIT:* Fallen Heroes and Logic Artists. Swen Vincke lives and breathes Divinity and will protect it with his life.

HDR Support

Are there any actual 1440p/4k 144hz+ gaming monitors out there that do HDR properly? From my limited research, HDR 400 and 600 certification is bogus. Several articles/sources appear to say HDR1000 is the true minimum for HDR. They don't seem to really exist out in the wild. At least not readily available, or also not some 60inch monstrosity with many other problems of its own.

There are a couple decent ones, but due to some technical limitations they have some issues that may or may not be a reason to avoid them.

Mostly to do with not enough bandwith for using it in all it's glory; you would need to run it at lower refresh rates (ie 98 or 120) or drop chroma subsampeling to 4.2.2 (for the 4K ones that is)

They are also pretty pricy (around 1500$ atm down from 2.2k-2.3K at launch).

Afaik there are no 1440p 144hz HDR monitors currently

Thank you for the post Pepe

Maybe. But perhaps an internal insurrection could be very much worth witnessing, and perhaps far more powerful than any other action that could be taken to protest what's happening.

It means I don't get involved in political stuff even though this is going to be a thing on Blues News (and the Internet) for the next week or more. :-/

Fair enough.

I think it would be nonsense to assume everyone that works for Blizzard in some capacity agrees with the actions taken, and message the company has sent.

They're putting their jobs on the line taking any form of action; no matter how mute or impactful said action might be.

Anyway, the system requirements seem very decent for what I would have imagined would be an absolute system killer of a game.

Do Rockstar allow for graphic mods? I never played GTAV for PC, but I think people have gone pretty nuts prettying that game up? I imagine there are people chewing at the bit to release stuff like that for RDR2 and turn it into a system killer. I hope so anyway.

While this is a very reasonable and optimized requirement for such a visually spectacular game, I still wonder why RDR was never released on PC.

I think the generally accepted rumor is that the game was built full blown spaghetti code to get working on consoles originally, and that it would essentially have to be completely remade from the ground up. And there is a rumor floating around that they are doing just that.
