I'd be tempted to upgrade my GTX 1060 but it makes no sense with the current pricing. I got the 1060 for £180 over two years ago. If I get a GTX 2060 it would give me a 70% frame rate boost but that card costs £300, almost 70% more! It just doesn't seem worth upgrading right now with card prices still inflated due to crypto mining (same 60-series card, also a year after launch, yet it costs way more). So, I think I'm better off using the £300 towards a next gen console than upgrading the PC rig, because AMD know they can't charge the same stupid prices for their console graphics chips as they can the PC/Crypto market.

"i5 @ 3.3 GHz or better" is pretty damn vague, since the old i5 2500k 3.3 GHz is much slower than a newer i5 8400 running at 2.8 GHz

My processor is from 2010! Seriously, i7 930.

Anyway, mine ran it just fine on much higher than low quality, so surely the old i5s can handle minimum. If that was for recommended, then yeah it would be pretty unclear.

Yeah I'm sure a 2500k i5 would run it fine and that's probably what they meant. But damn, feels like I only just got a GTX 1060 and now it's only "minimum" spec for a game with a fairly optimised engine :/

I'm hoping it's an X-wing vs tie fighter type game. This is my guess judging from the image released which shows a couple of x-wings attacking a star destroyer. It could also translate well to VR...

Helped them create jobs, eh? How many, where and how much tax revenue did that employment create? I'm thinking 1 or 2 people, not in Britain, and zero revenue.

Edinburgh-based Rockstar North employs around 700 people. Those employees generate about £11 million from income tax, NICs, VAT, council tax, etc.

When they moved it to April I thought at the time that was still an ambitious date. This delay doesn't surprise me in the least and I am expecting a further delay to the holiday period, because it's that ambitious a game and CRPR know they can't fuck anything up. After the success of W3 this is the difficult second album, as it were.

There is also news out today of a huge crunch being required to complete the game. Despite CDPR saying previously they would stop crunching so much. CDPR's share price has fallen 10% over night on the news of the delay and crunch time.

"Bitcoin is on fire" - not really, my bitcoin are only just back to the price they were 3 months ago, but it has been on a nice little bull run lately.

"the premier cryptocurrency is up by a whopping 22.92 percent year to date (based on Tuesday’s closing price) while the S&P500 is up by a paltry 1.62 percent during the same timeframe."

You could look at it selectively like that, but another interpretation is that Bitcoin is up 8% in 3 months compared to 10% of the S&P 500

Yes it's called an indie game.

So they go from a 100 point system to a 20 point system to a 10 point system. Next year they'll probably do away with ratings and adopt Eurogamer's "recommend or avoid".

Whole season was fantastic. Rewatched a couple of the episodes including the last and they were even better the second time round. Some of the criticism is valid - namely throwing you in at the deep end, stories feel kind of random and various jumps in the timeline aren't well explained for newcomers.. Regardless, my girlfriend and I both loved it and she knew nothing about the Witcher before. I definitely recommend watching with subtitles because the dialogue can be quite dense and it's easy to miss plot points or character or place names.

If they added some anomalies, mutants, weapons and factions to this it would be great.

And a Ciri one which was pretty cool.

Hyped for the show, Henry Cavill genuinely has a passion for the source material

Steam was the first big online games store which is why it has so many users. That, and Valve forcing you to install it for HL2 and other games.

This is the first time I've heard people call Steam users elitist or rich. That's frankly hilarious.

Elite or rich means you are in the top 1%, so how could a service as widely used as Steam be elitist?

Anyway back to the topic, I welcome Epic's competition in the sector and appreciate that they take a much smaller slice compared to Steam (12% or less compared to Steam's 30%). So they bought a few games and exclusives and everyone is furious, in a few years you will be thankful of lower prices due to 1) competition and 2) reduced cut from Epic, which may mean Valve are forced to reduce theirs too.

In a recent poll only 6% of people believed Valve were justified in their 30% cut

Not an official game, but there's a cool looking Starship Troopers mod for Squad - https://youtu.be/KL2-9b-HBoI?t=474
