New NVIDIA Drivers

Likewise, NVIDIA Support now offers new version 471.11 WHQL-certified Windows graphics drivers for GeForce graphics cards. These include support for raytracing and NVIDIA DLSS for Lego Builder's Journey. Word is: "LEGO Lego Builder’s Journey is the world’s first Unity game with ray tracing. LEGO Builder’s Journey is an aesthetic and atmospheric geometric puzzle game set in a completely LEGO brick-based environment. DLSS improves performance by up to 92% in the game." These drivers will also add the same support to DOOM Eternal, that will be in a week, sadly missing the 25th anniversary of Quake by that much (*holds fingers really close together*). Here's more on what it will add to latest installment in id Software's shooter series:
DOOM is a storied game franchise, and DOOM Eternal launched last year to critical acclaim and the adoration of fans. Powered by idTech, id’s incredibly fast game engine, DOOM Eternal is pushing the visual boundaries even further by adding ray-traced reflections and performance enhancing NVIDIA DLSS. This continues the winning streak for NVIDIA DLSS and ray tracing. DOOM is another huge game franchise, and DOOM Eternal is another Triple-A game that has turned to NVIDIA-pioneered gaming technologies to take their performance and image quality to new heights.

A lot of World of Warcraft players will be happy they've finally fixed the flickering shadows bug.. it's only taken them seven months.

I still think this was the best action game of the past 5 years, by a wide margin.

I loved Doom Eternal as a one off game in the series, but I agree with the sentiments here in general. I wouldn't want the whole series to evolve into a platform game with Souls type combat, which is what Eternal leans towards.

Now to really add to the frustration is when you need to use "strategy" to defeat certain demons. Take that out of my Doom game, please! I want brainless, mindless killing like Doom was all about.

I agree with this sentiment. At this point, they might as well call it Dancing with the Demon All-Stars.

This is my main complaint with the game. I thought Doom 2016 was excellent, but I quit Eternal after a few levels. There were too many systems to constantly be thinking about and juggle - which weapon would best kill this demon, or do I need to use the chainsaw/flame thrower/glory kill to get more ammo/armor/health? Yes, these systems existed in Doom 2016 as well (except the flame belch), but they were more ancillary, while eternal made them necessary.

Doom is meant to be mindless demon killing fun, and always having to spend concentration on this nonsense pulled me out of the game and never allowed me to get into a good flow.

Yeah what did me in was that demon you need to wait for his eyes to flash green before you can strike. I swear, is this Dark Souls in Doom? What the hell was that all about. I've died countless times to him and it got me thinking, wtf am I playing here? This ISN'T DOOM! I've had more spray and praying fun nonstop in Wolfenstein killin Nahzis than I've had here...

I've come to the conclusion that Doom is not really Doom anymore with the direction they've taken it despite wanting you to believe it.

Doom should be nonstop corridors and hallways of demons for blasting. At least that is the root basic of it. Eternal is almost like combination of Quake 3 arena and Doom combined. You literally just enter "zones" where they drop waves of demons at you. Yeah that is cool while it lasts, then it goes quiet again and you're just walking up until the next "zone". That's all it is, zone after zone.

Interesting news this past week on DLSS 2.2's silent release now being used in Seige as it clears up some blurriness when in motion AND that you can copy the new DLL into other DLSS games to get the benifit in those games to. That's cool.

Wake me up when affordable raytracing boards are not as futuristic as the teleporters in Doom
