Lots of people hated that you could one-button execute enemies for additional stuff, but that kept the dance fueled in a way that retreating for more health or armor wouldn't. It turned well timed dying enemies into a resource.

Exactly

I know I'm late to the party but I did say I would like to share my take on Doom 16 single player.

Having just finished last years Doom campaign I would like to express my gratitude to all those involved in making it, I had given up hope my experience of Unreal 96 would ever be surpassed.
As with Unreal & Half-life Doom succeeds by constantly constricting scale, replacing intimate corridors with expansive awe-inspiring new killing zones.
Weapons are introduced slowly & upgrades nescessary, double jumps allow the arms to scale obstacles, rhythm is found intuitively.
Fluid motion of enemy is faultless their use of the environment a dance of death, aside from inevitable boss fights nothing breaks the flow.
Maps are layered & complex tightly folding back on each other like origami painted & lit to perfection. Having dished out mayhem & with levels this beautiful I enjoyed quietly taking in the views before progressing.
Sound effects are the best to pass through a 7.1 headset, complimenting the carnage they create genuine atmosphere & movie like immersion.
The fact that all the above loads fast & runs like melted butter on Ultra settings is incredible, I truely feel privileged to have experienced this Doom in all it's glory.

Scored a 27" Dell IPS screen for $80. Finally getting rid of my old faithful 22" Samsung LCD...

I had a 22 inch Samsung widescreen for 10 years, loved it.
Went to a 27 inch lg IPS 5 months ago & gaming on it is fantastic.
I initially used the supplied driver & UI utility but have found it is less hassle & looks better if you just let Windows 10 find it correctly.

Got a 1070ti instead. Still badly overpriced because of the fucking crypto miners, but oh well.
1070ti is a nice card, congrats on the new build, enjoy.

I'm just popping in here to espouse pure hate for the latest nVidia drivers. Is anyone else having a problem? Well, not the lastest 'latest' drivers, the '388.13'=-Rigs-=

388.13 worked great for me.
Weird you say they didn't install correctly what OS are you on windows 7? Windows 10? 32 bit or 64 bit?
You weren't forcing 64 bit drivers on a 32 bit OS?
Why not get the 388.31 & clean install them.

Good to know you're getting real world results. Thanks. I'll be building a new system in the next year or so, and need to keep this in mind.

Optane ssd drives are appearing the review listed on TweakTown here shows they kick butt, but are very expensive.
Intel Optane dimms are due third quarter next year, a good article here https://goo.gl/YnCeAE it's looking like a game changer over ddr4.

All I can attest to is a $77.00 usd investment in getting to experience an aspect of 3d xpoint delivery & it is incredible, when the whole system becomes affordable to the enthusiast these rarely talked about bottle necks will vanish & the full potential of cpu & gpu will be realised.

So a week has passed with my 32gb optane memory card adding cache & boosting speeds to my hard drive, the results are stunning.
Any bottle neck that lay between the ram & gpu is now cleaned up, the most notable is Arma3 all textures are there all the time.
No texture load popping in or out, no catching on scope zooming over a long distance, no slow down with large battles of AI enemy, all at much higher display settings. I had heard Arma3 is Cpu intensive but I was also putting it down to the the 1070 & the fact it's an ambitious Arma game.
All my games now live on the hard drive, I had slow loading origin games on my ssd boot drive but they suffered as it filled up. They load & play as fast & faster on the hard drive now, keep in mind you may get a slower first load if you have not played the game in a while as it is only 32 gb. This is not a problem purely because of the in game performance not really talked about in reviews which fixate on frames per second & not pure through put, run the game 24 hours later & boom a faster load than my m.2 ssd.
I game at 1920x1080 on a 27 inch lg 75 hz monitor & set vsync in game.

Of course doing anything other than driving with 100% focus is going to increase the risk of a crash. But I'd guess talking with a camera going is not going to be any different than talking to someone that is in the car with you.

I disagree.
The passenger also has attention on the road & will unlike a camera exclaim "keep your eyes on the road you f*%king dumb sh%t before you kill us both" should things get hairy.

It's been proven in study after study that anything you can do to distract yourself from the tedium of driving just improves your road skillz. I recommend making Martini's (Shaken, not stirred) while using your ipad to refinance your mortgage.

Video was good.

I'm worried I no longer have a mortgage would viewing porn be an acceptable replacement?

Saw Thor Ragnarok last weekend with the fam, and it was freakin' awesome. I just wish I hadn't watched the trailer first.
Speaking of Thor, if you haven't seen some of Taika Waititi's other movies, give them a go: Hunt for the Wilderpeople and What We Do in the Shadows. Both are just so excellent.

How hot was Cate Blanchett, commanding performance as usual but how smoking was Cate.

It's by no means perfect but there's some good moments in there.
Yes the vehicle rides are comically console but so were the singleplayer thirdperson only plane controls in Battlefield 1.
In case anyone missed it this title is not claiming to be a simulator.
