Sure, a competitive multiplayer-only shooter. I'm sure people are lining up to halve their framerates to get ray traced reflections.
Such a gimmick.
The star of Netgear’s first WiFi 6 gaming router is its software.This is misleading. The author is referring only to new features added to the device, however, the interface itself is still the same shitty UI/UX it has been for years. Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen a single consumer router from any manufacturer with a decent interface, they're all ass. I always install a third-party firmware if my gear is supported, as the experience is just night and day difference.
Dev wrote on Sep 16, 2020, 13:46:Yeah, with just video card performance alone, it's basically a rounding error. However, when games start to use the new DirectStorage/RTX IO, then PCIe 4 may provide a benefit.
The PCI express scaling article, short tldr version if you don't want to slog through about 30 pages:
1% difference between PCIe 3 and PCIe 4.
I figured it would be pretty small, but wanted to verify, because if I get this and put it into my intel with 9900 CPU I don't want it crippled by PCIe 3... like the crippling that will happen to a next gen nvme SSD if I put it into this system, because Intel is slow at putting PCIe 4 in.

It's been long enough now that I don't remember the details, but I do remember that it was almost the same, barely anything changed. It was still just as disappointing, almost like they just tweaked it a little so they could say, "look, we listened and changed the ending, now stop hassling us", and apparently most people ate it up.chickenboo wrote on Sep 16, 2020, 19:05:
I need to hurry up and finish my ME1 playthrough so I can get to ME2. I never played it back in the day, and ME2 is the one everyone raves about.
Whatever you do, do yourself a favor and never finish ME3. I still almost feel the same level of disappointment now as I did back then with regards to ME3's ending. It actually did a number on me lol, I was that much of a fan. Whatever you achieve as Shepard, it'll all be for absolutely nothing...
El Pit wrote on Sep 14, 2020, 12:30:That's not really how it was in practice. Bungie has been a hot mess since they got their independence from MS. Bungie's management really has no idea what they're doing, and while they might not have liked someone else calling the shots, at least MS was able to keep them focused and on track. While I'm no fan of Microsoft, this honestly sounds like good news to me, and I think it can only improve Bungie.
Microsoft: Come back, honey. Won't hit you again. Really. Ever. Honestly. Trust me. Just don't try to behave like a bitch again - OR I WILL BEAT YOU INTO A BLOODY PULP.
Let's see how intelligent Bungie really is.
More evidence emerges that Windows 10 is killing off one of its most useful features.I see MS is now following Google's lead by replacing good products/features with completely inferior, inadequate, and ugly alternatives. Hopefully someone will eventually release a 3rd party Control Panel application, like Classic/OpenShell did for the shitty start menu.
Beamer wrote on Sep 8, 2020, 12:17:Sorry, no. For Amazon, from a business perspective, yes, it makes sense to go with a weekly release schedule to keep people talking about it longer. But as a person watching it, that argument is bogus, imo. What you're saying is that it's more important for you, as a fan, to be forced to wait between episodes to have time to discuss the show with others than it is to simply watch and enjoy it. That seems irrational to me. Sure, you may enjoy the discussion, but to give that a higher importance? Really?
I feel as if the Boys release schedule makes sense. 3 to loop you in, but then a slow burn so you can discuss and keep momentum building. These shows typically come and go in a week if they don't do a more traditional release schedule, which encourages people discussing online for months, with interest building.
