Hopefully Anthem will be a learning lesson for what's left of BioWare, the game looked generic and boring from the very first trailer and nothing ever changed. Look forward to another Dragon Age someday, always liked that series.

This game looks great and priced surprisingly low, trying to convince my crew to get it then I'll grab it. Hopefully by the time that happens a couple updates will be out.

Here we go again with with Gran Turismo delays Polyphony will never change. I’m mainly a pc gamer but really looking forward to seeing what they do with GT7.

PUBG was a phenomenal game when it came out of EA with friends (3-4 years ago), just riddled with bugs, maybe that was part of its charm at times. The problem is it just didn't evolve further than some bug fixes and a few new features. It's on an outdated engine with mediocre devs. It's still the best BR there is IMO, by far the most realistic with all out all the sliding, parachuting, laser guns with zero recoil, mini map watching spam fest that is all the other BRs.

To call it a cash grab is absurd, it was only $30 3+ years ago and I put 100s of hours into it with friends.

At what point does it not become classic anymore? Lol.

I’d say it’s pretty obvious to those that played WoW back in the day BC was the end of ‘classic’, so basically this is the point. Level 70 and the perfection that was raiding, PVP, and Karazhan was the end before easymode features like dailies and LFR garbage dumbed the game down.

While I do think this will be awesome and I’m sure I’ll get it on PC, I’m worried the console version will turn this into a completely mindless spamfest like it did to Diablo 3.

Someone is fanboiing a whole lot on Bayonetta. It's an okay shooter/puzzler, but it is hardly 'peak gaming'.

It seems like neckbeard nonsense. If you want amazing player agency and a good challenge go with Sekiro any day over Bayonetta.

Got my 5800X at microcenter last month for my new build. They had like 20-30 Zen 3s in stock when I was there. Amazing CPU but definitely not worth the money now that the almost as fast i7-10700F is $230.

Exciting times, finally a new Battlefield. Hope it's along the lines of how awesome BC2/BF3/BF4 were (after half a year of patches for each of them at least).

What's the standard? To me that would be the $20 Amazon mouse, so I doubt these are sub to that.
I like the button layout on the MMO mouse.

That standard is a bit low lol. I'd say minimum for a good gaming mouse is anything with a PixArt 3360 sensor, 1000 Hz polling, and onboard memory. Starting price for those features is $30-40. Some good ones on a budget are the HyperX Pulsefire ($30) and Razer Viper ($40).

Bloodborne is probably by favorite single player game of all time. Replaying this at 60fps with no frame pacing issues would be transcending, and of course a little easier due to less inherent input lag.

I'm confused, this is more VRAM than the 3070. Something seems wrong here like it'll cost more than it needed to if it was 8GB.

I would just love to see a sequel along the lines of BC2/BF3/BF4. Miss the Battlefield series.

I didn't read most of the links, but the games better have ray tracing and DLSS included.

Probably none of that. They are just masters, not remakes. There is a specific article about not going to UE4 because of the effort/cost involved.

Haven't played Rust in years, so crazy to see it at the top of the Steam and Streaming charts. It crossed 1 million peak viewers on Twitch the other day.

The 870 Evo is showing 87 MB/s for random/QD1 reads. This effectively makes this drive up there with the fastest NVME PCI-E 4.0 drives on the market for day-to-day situations like app/game loading. Really impressive.

For the 870 EVO they claim a 38% increase to QD1 performance. This would effectively make this 550MB/s drive as fast as the some of the very best NVME drives for day-to-day use, like load times etc. Really impressive if true.

So I did a new Ryzen 5800X / B550 build in December, and yea it's the best gaming processor and all that and very fast. But I have no doubt Intel will marginally the gaming crown back with a +19% IPC jump if they maintain clock speeds. It's just a shame it took them so long and that power consumption is so absurd with their ancient 14nm+ process. They need a new node extremely badly. The Big/Little design is certainly interesting too.

The only con on AMD right now is pricing. I fully admit I overpaid for the $450 5800X which is only 5% faster in gaming than the i7-10700K which costs only $360. If Intel keeps pricing similar or stays below $400 they'll have an 8 core winner.
