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.
1. People playing competitively may not use RTX features, but the majority play for fun. Regardless, ray-tracing is far from a gimmick, it's here to stay, and will only get more prevalent (and rightfully so).
2. Using RTX, without DLSS, in a game like Fortnite is less of a deal regarding performance, since it already runs pretty fast. However, RTX+DLSS is basically a free graphics upgrade with little to no performance hit.

The star of Netgearā€™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.

I'll be waiting for reviews, but this looks pretty good, I'm definitely interested.

Also, jacobvandy, I've never read the books (not much of a reader), but the movies are great. I rewatch them all about every year. I never get sick of them, and I always end up feeling like I wish there were more (even though there's already 8, excluding Fantastic Beasts).

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.
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.

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...
Yeah, I never understood people's acceptance of the "fixed" ending. 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.

That said, I enjoyed the games enough that if they released a *remastered* trilogy (I know that's not what the article states), I'd play it again.

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.
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.

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.

If there's anyone else that would like to keep sticking it to Epic by claiming all the freebies without ever giving them any money, they seem to have removed the 2FA requirement (which I didn't feel like it was worth the effort to deal with). It worked last week for Into the Breach, and it just worked again for these.

This actually looks like it could be decent, though I would like to see more actual gameplay. However, I agree with jacobvandy, what a ridiculously awful music choice. I mean, I don't mind that genre, but it's like playing marching band music at a funeral.

Co-op would have been nice though. :\

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.
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'm done with the weekly release nonsense. From a *consumer* perspective, in these days of streaming media, there is no reason why I shouldn't be able to watch something on my own schedule. If I want to binge it, I will. If I want to watch one or two a week, I will. I find that the majority of shows are vastly more enjoyable and immersive when I can keep watching at my own pace rather than be forced to wait. When this release schedule happens, I wait until it's all available before I start watching, but then I spend months trying to avoid spoilers - often unsuccessfully, because so many publications insist on putting spoilers in article titles or coming across comments/memes from the show that ruin a big event.

I played TD2 on release with some friends. We had a lot of fun with the campaign, but then realized there was no end-game. On top of that, they ruined all the crafting/modification/etc game systems from TD1->2, stacked on a crazy amount of RNG systems over the already high amount that was in TD1, and the way gear worked in world tier 5 was different than all the previous tiers meant solely to heavily increase grind. All this together and we very quickly quit playing and haven't touched it since.

I've been hoping that things have improved so we can get back into it, but like aka_STEVE mentioned, I keep hearing how they're constantly changing things so much that it always requires re-gearing your character, and that just sounds like work to me.

Given all this, anyone been playing that can recommend if it's worth coming back to yet? Massive really improved TD1 over the life of the game, so I'm confident they can get there eventually, I just don't know how long it'll take.

(Also, side question - have they increased inventory/bank space and/or improved the UI/UX on PC at all?)

NZXT has some of the nicest looking cases these days, imo. They're very sleek, clean, and minimal, yet still have all of the necessary and modern features. I'm currently using the S340, and after Zen 3 is released, I (so far) plan to go with either the H510 or H710 for the new build.

I'm open to others, but I've found it difficult to find high quality cases of a similar style.

I've seen multiple conflicting rumors that the 3090 will cost either $1400 or $2000. $2k is immediately out of the question (though more likely), but $1400 might sway me. I guess we'll see on 9/1.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 will get 24GB GDDR6X VRAM, & RTX 3080 to get 10GB VRAM
*sigh*

So the 3090 is obviously meant to replace the Titan, and the 3080 the 2080. This seems to indicate that there will not be a 3080ti at launch and leave a huge performance/price gap in the card lineup. I feel like this is an attempt to force people to either spend way more on the 3090 than they wanted, or double-dip by buying a 3080 now, then upgrade again later to the ti. Most smart business decisions are really shitty consumer decisions.

I'm only interested in the 3080ti, so I guess I'll have to wait until sometime next year, which means I'll also be putting my first playthrough of CP2077 on hold until then.

I feel angry and dejected.
