I don't play big competitive mboa and CS pvp type games, will see if I can squeak by. Do you think I will need 8gb to get 60fps@1440p in single player games like HZD, Fallout 4 (so many mods, so little time) and really looking forward to Steam versions of Outer Worlds and Control?Acleacius wrote on Aug 6, 2020, 12:09:El Pit wrote on Aug 6, 2020, 11:49:I decided to wait till the new cards are released (septemeber or october?) atm I've got a GTX 1060 so it will chug along. I should be able to pull 60fps with most games at 1440 (well that's my guess).Acleacius wrote on Aug 6, 2020, 11:41:El Pit wrote on Aug 6, 2020, 11:25:I've never owned a laptop, but it does look like a great package. Atm, I'm just looking for something moderately powered like Ryzen 7 3700X, Asus AM4 TUF Gaming X570-Plus, WD_Black SN750 1TB (with win 10, since I'm being forced to play HZD), Corsair Vengeance DDR4 3200, LG 27GL83A-B 27 and still working on a PS. So at about $1200 and wouldn't mind getting it down below $1000. Hah, just realized that's a stimulus check. Well at least I'm spending it for something important! (self slap)
Wait those few months and go for a Ryzen 4700 and a Big Navi or an RTX30x0 graphics card. Don't buy something now for more money than it will be worth in a few weeks/months.
Sounds like a good package to me if you want to buy now. What is your graphics solution?
I still haven't been able to watch Contagion during this apocalypse, now your scaring me with the Birds!
@1080p, you should be fine. At 1440p... Well, if you can live with medium graphics quality setting in recent games, you might get 60fps.

Also also... did anyone else see that recent Trump interview about the virus? I had my popcorn ready when it came in German news. Because you know it's gonna be comedy gold then.
Wouldn't you have to VPN out of Germany to see any Trump speech? I would have thought virtually all of his speeches would fall afoul of the German Strafgesetzbuch sections 90, 130, 140, 164, 185, and 187.

But yeah, good example of malicious ad networks.
There's also a theory that FF79 introduced something (coincidentally around the same time as the ad script was updated) which now throws a wrench in the works.

I personally think people need to shut up and temper their bullshit and just be glad there are games still being made that can be played. I'm like some of you, the older I have gotten the less tolerant I have become about people and their obsessive whining bullshit over stuff thats not overly important and stop nitpicking.

Everyone can identify with people that don't look like them, but only white guys frequently get to identify with video game characters who do.
It's a powerful statement to a child. How many white children pick Asian or black superheroes as their favorite?

Boy was Wolcen a letdown...
The Steamcharts do not show a pretty picture; no one is playing or cares...
Awful awful launch, brutal bugs which some still aren't fixed today, nerfs to the only aspects of the game that were remotely fun at launch; sadly this list just goes on.

I'm starting to wonder if we are going to see some Epic on Playstation 5 and Steam on Xbox SX.
Or is this something that I am out of the loop on and is common knowledge?
My last console dev was as a bit twiddler long ago before I sold out to the man for that enterprise $$$
Mr Newell would be wise to bless the new Xbox if it is important to Valve's bottom line in the future as well as Mr Sweeney doing the same for PS5 if that behooves his company's future.
Where'd I put that tinfoil hat?
