Who here doesn't already own a copy of this game for the past 2 decades?

For those that don't know there's 2 great mods:
https://www.moddb.com/mods/quake-2-xp
or
https://www.moddb.com/mods/berserkerquake2

Both have impressive effects and graphic enhancements. I'd say Quake2xp is closer to the original look, just waay prettier. Beserker looks great too but is darker in general.

Either way you can't go wrong.

Sounds like a real-life Bene Gesserit test. Brave and determined action on his part.
If I were in that position I think I would fail.

I miss Michael Ironside as Sam Fisher. He had such a distinct voice.

I always found it funny how in the original Splinter cell he had mainly a serious tone, but whenever he applied a Medkit he'd sound as though he was deriving a little too much pleasure from it. Wink

From what you are all saying I tend to think I wouldn't like the changes so much. But you never know until you try it yourself.
I'll just keep waiting for a deep, deep discount.

Doom 2016 played great.
Wish there was a demo for Eternal so I could see if I like their changes to combat. The platforming stuff wouldn't bother me.

When you lose power, water and communications for more than a few hours it really hits you how dependant we are on each other.
At first it is kind of novel:
"Honey break out the candles"
but a few hours later it is:
"Don't use the toilet! There's no water! We may need it to live!"

The character animations on foot look kind of stiff but the ship stuff looks very nice.
I don't know what this will mean for gameplay but it sure makes for pretty Youtube videos.

Oh, that's probably true, there are some seriously intense texture packages now days. 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?

You need 8gb VRAM .. never, ever go below that. Anything less than 8gb will give you issues in modern games, at 1440p anyway. But even at 1080p it can rear its ugly head... it's got nothing to do with FPS, if you run out of VRAM most DX12 games will just crash. And for RAM, not below 16GB
Gtk, thanks. I've never even tried dx12 or 1440p, so I can just run it at 1080p. I'll still wait to pick up a new video card, iirc the new cards come out in about 2 months. I probably won't be able to save more than $100 on mobo and cpu, which I would get the benefit of for the next 4 months. It's strange to hear dx12 just crashes, if I had an issue in dx 9-11 we could just adjust settings like AA or Shadows. I most meant being able to run at 60fps as being a smooth measure with most settings at high. Sounds like I've over estimated the power of the 3700x, RAM, and GTX1060. Thanks

I have a GTX1060 too and, while it was a nice upgrade from my previous gtx760, I couldn't see it handling 1440p (although it depends on what you're playing).
I Should've spent a little more and grabbed a 1070 but it wouldn't have fit in my m-itx case. I barely squeezed the 1060 in there.

They've imposed harsher lockdown requirements down here in parts of Aus. Most things like mandatory face masks and only small numbers of people in a store at a time I understand.
But they actually imposed a curfew... I couldn't believe it when I heard it. It makes zero sense as it forces people who might otherwise have gone to the store at less busy times of the day to go during the non-curfew time. Now everyone will be panic buying all at once.
This whole thing is insane and is supposed to last at least 6 weeks!
Yeah well, it seems people weren't following the rules seeing as the case count was quickly going up. It isn't insane, it is how you tamp down a pandemic. Could be worse, you could live in the US where the national level of government wants to let the virus run wild...
I'm just worried for people who are alone and not in the best of shape already. Their routine can be interrupted by this and cause them more anxiety or worse.

You are right about some people not following the rules, but I think a curfew may force some higher-risk people to go out at times when there are more people. Late night shopping with just a few people in the store is far safer than during the day.

I mean there's the no more security updates thing that could make you vulnerable. And some of those are wormable. I would hope that you installed the couple of manual out of band updates they released for win 7 for the critical things, like what was it... bluekeep, and disabled SMB v1.

But yes, MS is all sorts of shady in the tactics they pulled. I had to install a 3rd party tool to prevent MS for forcing me to upgrade. I only upgraded when I got around to building a new box.

I have taken steps to mitigate security concerns, but I take your point that I'm more at risk.

...we’ll likely need a few weeks between steps, so I don’t want to create the impression that this is happening overnight
Surprised
I don't think anyone expects anything to happen that quickly when it comes to SC.

Still, they have made some beautiful videos showcasing some of their tech. I can understand why people were so excited at one point.

I hope they can pull this all together and release a decent game.
