Control is an OUTSTANDING game.

I don't know anything about Genshin Impact, but Control by itself is an nearly unskippable free offer. I know there are the hard core anti-Epic folks that won't get it at Epic's store, but you all should play this game eventually.

I’m not anti Epic, I’m anti “exclusive”. And since I don’t have an Epic account this offer is perfectly skippable. Just sticking to my personal rules/values, no matter what.

Since this isn’t an EGS exclusive I might get it sooner. I’m not a fan of Ubi either, their store/service/customer support is complete garbage compared to Steam’s.

Epic Games store exclusive. Thats great because it means i’ll get the game on Steam for under $10 as soon as available. No buy until these conditions are met.

I preordered Odyssey but don't have the time to play it right now, just downloaded and gave it a quick shot yesterday. It seems to be running OK on my 6900 XT for a version 1.0. It can't maintain 60 fps at all times at 4k with maxed out settings though. So, I'm not surprised a 1080 Ti is struggling in VR. A 3090 however should be silky smooth, Frontier has some more optimization work to do.
I'm glad they didn't release all for platforms simultanously (hello CDPR!) and put the focus on PC first.

My 6900 XT has been rock solid since it had replaced my 1080 Ti. Despite doing a lot of tweaking I've not experienced a hard crash yet. The driver always manages to recover the card back to desktop. Crashes only happen if I go too far messing around- so that's MY fault. As I said, totally stable at standard and optimized clocks.

He certainly must have had a faulty card.

China is the world's major problem. I don't know how often that has to be said until gov'ts start really doing something about it.
As long as quite a few of our things are „made in China“ governments can’t do anything about it. In fact it’s already much too late. A significant majority of the planet's resources is in Chinese hands already. Deal with it as that’s not going to change.

I consider myself extremely lucky having managed to snatch a Radeon RX 6900 XT directly from AMD’s shop here in Europe. At € 989 this was by far the most expensive GPU I have bought ever. I might sell my 4 year old 1080 Ti and make 50-100 € profit. Crazy times...

Tesla got $1.5bn in environmental subsidies in 2020, funded by the taxpayer.
It turned around and spent $1.5bn on Bitcoin, which is mostly mined with electricity from coal.

Even more bad news, new 80$ flat tariff on GPUs going into effect.

After the almost doubling of prices post crypto craze, the bots, the scalpers, the new crypto crazy, the low and midrange are gonna eat the worst with that crazy tariff... THANK YOU MR.DRUMPF! You're a fucking lifesaver for "sticking it to the Chinese"!

And you just know this is gonna get reflected on Canadian prices too..

Considering each and every one of these GPUs was designed in the U S A...

Not for me. No Epic account, therefore no EGL and no freebies for me.

That's a peerless level of deductive reasoning.
Maybe. But with Epic there is no such thing as “free”. I’m certain of that.

Should have just focused on a low-bug PC version, then once it was stabilized, focused on next-gen, then after all that analyzed to see if it was worth it for last gen consoles.

Better yet, they should have focused on just one platform with the most potential: the PC. No console garbage. And release a polished product. Everything would have been perfect. Instead, they have a complete mess on all platforms now, an army of disgruntled players and two lawsuits. Congrats, way to go CDPR!

This is how it goes when heart and your soul aren't involved in the development of games. EA was the first to only release games that the masses wanted to make big money. Board staff at Cyberpunk 2077 made the same mistake. And in this case, it's also spiced with a lack of knowledge of how to make a game.

Guess this is how future gonna be...?

I think that’s not the main issue here. I believe they saw those big $-signs by announcing a simultaneous release on all platforms and totally underestimated the huge workload. Instead they could’ve just omitted the old gen consoles, set a first release date for PC and a second release date for the new consoles. But no, those $-signs were too tempting and now they’re paying the price.

Just for the bone crushing crunch, the lower ladder employees definitely deserve it. Management... not so sure.

I think so. Management plays a key role in the company’s success. And CDPR are pretty damn successful.

Countdown to refund started.

Keybinds are completely broken and some keys are hardlocked for no f*ing reason. For me as leftie the game is totally unplayable because the numeric right side of my keyboard is basically non-existant. up-down-left-right keys are locked for many functions. CDPR have not learned one thing from the royal f*up they commited on Witcher 3. Angry
With CP2077 they start this keyboard nonsense anew and it shall take another 1-2 years to "fix". Every little indie developer can code proper keybinds without idiotic restrictions, CDPR can't or don't want to. Well, I'm out this time.

The game looks nice (far from revolutionary) but the lousy performance is unjusftified and asks for many rounds of optimizations to come. If you don't own a last-gen Nvidia GPU with DLSS you're most likely screwed. I haven't experienced any crashes but my 1080 Ti is good enough for 1440p at low-medium settings, high-ultra at 1080p. CDPR flatout lied to us about the minimum/recommended specs.

If CD Projekt only offered it on GOG, I'd buy it there. But they didn't. Oh well.

As mentioned before: some gamers only buy from Steam. That considered, CDPR also sell CP 2077 there despite the ca. 30 percent cut.

If it hadn’t been for CDPR I would not have pre-ordered the game (one of exactly three I’ve ever pre-ordered) on GOG. Here CDPR is developer AND host at the same time. So they deserve each and every cent of my money. Over the years my steam library has grown considerably because it’s the best platform overall IMO. Updates appear first on Steam and I’ve never (meaning ZERO in 16 years of membership) had any issues with bandwidth, disconnects or on downtime on Steam.

Sorry mate, but it’s not 2015 anymore. Things have changed quite a bit since. While ED is still a massive grind (has always been since 1984 and will always be) you can purchase trade data in game. Besides there are tons of fan sites that give you this information in real-time.
