People still play this old ass game? Christ. A total of seven polygons in the whole game in 2018 would be fucking unbearable to my eyeballs. But then I never played WoW in the first place...

News Comments > Far Cry 5 System Specs
12. Re: Far Cry 5 System Specs Jan 23, 2018, 10:06 ForgedReality
 
I'm running a system I built ages ago, with an i7 980x--a CPU that debuted in like 2010 or something. I'm in zero hurry to upgrade. I'm running a 1tb SSD and 1080 Ti. I'm one of those "almost nobodys" who plays in 4k. CPU doesn't even really mean all that much in gaming, and CPUs have been pretty stagnant for years, not really making any appreciable performance jumps. But now, with these latest exploits, the soft fixes have been reducing their performance significantly. I hope the permanent fixes don't also impact performance, because CPUs really need to start making the leaps and bounds that they did back in the 90s and early 2000s. Setbacks like this are worrisome.

In addition, we are looking into adopting a new solution to detect and ban more cheaters and we have been continuously strengthening our security systems

Your game trusts the client for a lot of important information. I'm not really sure it can ever be made even remotely secure.
It works out pretty well for them. Ban cheaters, next day they re-buy the game. Rinse and repeat.
Works for CS, don't see why it wouldn't work for PUBG.
It's a rather successful business model

GTA5 as well.

Eh, this was the worst of the series. Carma 1 or 2 would have been much better. Still, it's free so I guess I can't complain too much.

Really? I loved the fuck out of TDR2000. I must have put thousands of hours into it as a kid. Total blast.

Who the fuck cares about Final Fantasy on PC? It's a game for consoles. Previous ports were fucking terribly done. Plus, I mean, it's a console game.

The president is not the problem, heís merely an output of a broken/corrupt political system that is flawed in representing the people.

I donít know what the hell you Americans are going to do... but being hopefully that it ends with his presidency is naive. Youíll have to fight harder, be more vocal and politically engaged than the Obama era.

[Edit] Carlin would think Iím too optimistic: https://youtu.be/ILQepXUhJ98

The only thing the Americans have learned or will learn about this is that billionaire media personalities win elections.

Oprah 2020... Wall

I'm sorry but I don't think she's presidential material. I think she's great and intelligent and makes good decisions and seems to be good-hearted and all that, but I don't see her being strong enough as a policymaker and enforcer. People like the idea of it because shes popular or whatever, and rich as fuck (I'm not sure that's necessarily a good thing in a president), but does that make her good material to lead the country? I have my sincere doubts.

News Comments > NVIDIA BFGD Revealed

I dunno. I game on a 55" 4K TV (https://www.sony.com/electronics/televisions/XBR-X930E-X940E-Series)and it's fucking amazing. Luckily, my desk is pretty deep though so I sit maybe 4-5 feet away. Took a bit of getting used to after upgrading from my 24" CRT made in like 2004 (FW-900). But now, I can't see going back to smaller monitors.

It really pulls you into the game at this scale, and, really, the sweet spot with 4k is around 40-50" anyway, so I never understood the tiny-ass 27" models out nowadays. Seems a waste of time and money. Way too fucking small.

I'd go for a 40-55" version of this at the right price and without sacrificing visual fidelity. I find that hard to see happening though, since doubling the throughput without reducing the bandwidth would be pretty difficult-to-impossible to pull off. I'm hoping nVidia isn't discounting the image quality just because they're "gaming" monitors, and nearly all of them out now have shit image quality when compared to professional displays or TVs. I still want crisp text and accurate colors. I'd take that over high framerates because I don't ONLY game on my PC.

All you're doing with electric cars is offsetting the energy cost. It is still there, just out of sight and out of mind. Batteries are toxic as hell too, so I have to wonder about the long-term environmental cost. All these leaking nuclear reactors is bad enough already.

Haha, them Shark Card sales really lit a fire under Rockstars asses. They haven't added a new heist since heists came out, because they said they were too expensive. Now they are adding a new heist AND some crazy shit with submarines and jetpacks and flying Deloreans and shit?

How were heists expensive? You mean for Rockstar to create? They HAVE been busy adding a ton of new content though--even better than heists in a lot of ways.

This is an absolute bullshit move by AMD, and their little handwringing explanation that they will force their AIB partners to be more clear about shit doesn't take away the fact that they gimped their card and are still trying to sell it for the same price.

Anyone who bought the gimped card has a VERY easy bait and switch lawsuit win waiting for them.

Hey, AMD? It used to be that when you wanted to release more RX5xx options, you'd give them gimped card a different name, so as to make it clear that it was different. The fact that you didn't do that just shows you're trying to cheat people.

Thanks for turning into Intel/Nvidia.

Sorry, but when has Intel or nVidia ever done anything like this?

It's not Intel and nVidia's fault that AMD hasn't been able to compete from a performance perspective for well over a decade. This is just AMD being AMD.

Actually, you would be wrong, have you seen the latest bullshit the Govt is now trying to pull with propriety taxes? Oh yea, they are now complementing not allowing home owners to claim property tax on our tax returns. This country is falling in to the black hole of shit.

If this happens, they are saying home prices will drop in value by 10 to 15 percent. And start pushing people away from buying homes if you cant get any tax breaks for owning a home. Fucking Govt!!

You think they WANT people owning homes? FUCK NO! That's a lot of empty space that could be used for building 10 units on with no parking so you can move in and pay 2-3 times what you would for a mortgage for a quarter the space! That's progress! You'd be crazy to want to buy a home when you can knock on the wall and talk to your neighbor. C'mon!

It's not that big of news. You won't be seeing any products utilizing 2.1 until at least 2019 or 2020. Maybe even later. By then, whoever's not on board will get left behind. I'm sure both teams understand that.
