    Doom Eternal

    This is generally why I wasn't a fan of this game. The prior game felt like the original games where what kept you alive was basically being able to dodge bullets almost like a bullet hell type of game, and have good aim. That was really about it. The last game captured that perfectly. This...

    Doom Eternal

    Again, it's a good shooter, but it's not what I wanted out of a Doom game. I had no issue with the difficulty, and people trying to downplay opinions because they think people had a tough time with the 'difficulty' is just pathetic. Fundamentally, there was way to much platforming in this...

    Doom Eternal

    I don't know. I really just don't see how you could review this one higher or even on par with the last game. I just re-played through the last game after beating this one and it reinforced my opinion that the last game is better. The amount of forced cutscenes and gimmicky platforming present...

    Doom Eternal

    The game is good, but I agree with the assessment that it isn't as good as the prior game. They put to many forced platforming sections into the game, and there are too many scripted/cutscenes now. The first game had very minimal scripted events / cutscenes and it worked perfectly. The...

    Neil Young has issues with the MacBook Pro and he's eager to tell you about it.

    I mean, he's right, but he's also wrong. Wrong because all laptop's have shit speakers. If you want decent quality you've always needed to get an external DAC or output digital via DP/HDMI.

    Fractal Design Define R6

    No clue as I don't use any on my R6. The HDD holders all have soft rubber connections on it that should prevent said issue though.

    X570 reccomendation

    As long as you have 3200mhz DDR4 with decent timing faster memory won't be worth it. X570 has a higher chance of supporting a 4x00 series CPU which will likely be the final AM4 socket CPU, but outside of that it's the only real thing X570 will get you. It's not like you need PCI-E 4.0 as you...

    X570 reccomendation

    You really just need to figure out what motherboard add-on features you want, and then just price comparison X470 against X570 with the same onboard features. In many cases the better X470 boards are about the same price as entry level X570 boards anyways. Finally, if it's purely going to be...

    Wolfenstein: Youngblood

    Don’t let RTX fool you, this game is garbage.

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    Acer X27. Monitors do exist, but it's a small amount of people with high refresh rate 4k displays and/or 4K TV's.

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    It won't get you 60+ in all titles, but it'll still get you 40-60 FPS which is better than 20-40 FPS. Even more so if you have g-sync which makes things tolerable whenever you are in the 40-sub 60 range. I agree though, the 2080ti is pretty much a waste if you aren't doing 4k gaming. I only...

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    Agreed. I have a 5820k Alienware system with that triangle case design, and it's built for the GPU to be a blower design. Nothing wrong with it. It's just noisier.

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    It’s the difference between playable and unplayable. It’s at least 30% faster. Not sure where you got $1300 from either. It’s $1k or $1200 if you got founders.

    BioWare's new IP: Anthem

    No Man's Sky is a bit different as the developer had a reputation they wanted to improve, and really couldn't just abandon the game. With Anthem it makes more financial sense for EA to just kill the IP and move on. EA doesn't have a reputation that they care to improve. They just need to...

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    Yeah, no. 30-40% is noticeable at 4K when it means the difference of just staying above 30fps or not. It also gets you up to 60fps+ in the games where you’d be hovering around the mid 40s. If you can’t notice that, good for you. But I could, easily.

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    You still need AA regardless of pixel density due to things like shimmering. Pixel density helps the rough edge problem only. 2080ti is up to 40% faster compared to the 1080ti in games where the memory bandwidth increase helps out more. It’s the only card that will do 4K with acceptable frame...

    Former or current 1080 ti/Titan (Pascal) owners

    Yes, I upgraded to a 2080ti. It was well worth it as my monitor is 4k, and the 1080ti just isn't enough for 4k.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I get decent enough FPS w/ a 2080ti @ 4k. It's under 60 though, and it wouldn't be the best without g-sync helping out.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    You can play the game on easier modes and not worry about being a pro at parrying and just spam dodging, it'll work. I personally enjoy the challenge of a game like Sekiro, but it's obvious this game's mechanics were made easier for a larger audience.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    It’s closer to Sekiro than dark souls. It’s more focused on parrying than dodging. But it’s no where near Sekiro or DS in terms of skill depth.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    I really liked the game, but it wasn't Dark Souls / Sekiro level of quality gameplay. It has some distinct issues, but it was still a very solid game, and without a doubt the best star wars game to come out in a very long time. I'd suggest it's EA's only good Star Wars game released outside of...

    Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice

    I really love this game. Re-Playing through it now. I'm amazed that I was able to jump back in and be somewhat decent, i've memorized most of the fights so much.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    That's a pretty old GPU/CPU combo at this point. I wouldn't expect many games moving forward to run much better.

    a Q about MSI A-XMP

    It just takes the XMP settings read off the memory and applies them. That's literally all it is. I've never had any issues with it, and always use the option.

    Any AMD motherboards with Dual Link DVI onboard? SOB!!!

    Agreed, just get an adapter. They aren't expensive, and you can probably find one for 'free' laying around in any larger IT shop.

    Quantic Dream titles including Heavy Rain, Beyond: Two Souls, and Detroit: Become Human coming to PC

    60fps worked for me. Maybe the reviewer had vsync enabled and couldn’t maintain frames so were being dropped to 30. The game looked fantastic, and I enjoyed the story. I got the game cheap during the Epic early summer sale months ago.

    Star Wars: Battlefront 2 (2017)

    I wouldn't buy any EA title like this game. The best thing to do is just pay for a month of Origin Premier, and play it. Or do the yearly for $99 which gives you access year round to a number of decent games, including this one.

    China-Based Zhaoxin Targets 2021 for 7nm CPUs With PCIe 4.0, DDR5 Support

    I’m pretty shocked that there are people naive enough on here that would knowingly choose to be spied on by the PRC. Yes, western countries spy as well. However, there are still legal processes and protections in place that western spy agencies have to follow. Further, people working in the...

    Acer X27 4k 144hz HDR Gsync

    It could absolutely use twice as many dimming zones, in my opinion. But you have to remember this is also still only a 27'' panel. I don't have any pictures, but i'm pretty sure you can look at some reviews that will show you it. You don't really see the haloing if it isn't a scenario like you...

    Acer X27 4k 144hz HDR Gsync

    I use FALD on sdr mode all the time. It generally looks great when playing games. To answer the comment above about haloing/etc; I wouldn't keep FALD on for photo editing because you can get some occasional haloing depending on what's going on with the picture. And yes, FALD helps out a lot...

    Buy 2080Ti now, or wait for holidays?

    DP 1.4 is the best you'll get on any card right now, which at the very least gets you 4k/120hz or 8k/60hz.

    Buy 2080Ti now, or wait for holidays?

    It's 30-40% faster than a 2080/1080ti. It's the only card remotely capable of decent frame rates in modern titles @ 4K. It's also the only card that will give decent FPS for raytraced titles @ more typical resolutions like 1440 / 1080p. The 2080ti is fairly relevant. Yeah, it won't be worth...

    Hellbound game - 90's FPS 20 years later

    Ion Fury was really good, but that's mostly because it was actually retro. The amount of work put into that level design to get those graphics/levels in the BUILD engine was pretty impressive.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    This game isn’t real HDR. It just supports the brightness, but doesn’t have HDR colors. It’s best played with HDR off if you want the SDR enhancements your panel can induce.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I mean, if you enjoyed GTAV i'm surprised you aren't enjoying this. This game has more to do, and in many ways has less BS. You can actually save the game now like a normal person. In prior Rockstar games you had to always use the bed, period, which was super annoying because you'd have to...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    Because it's fun? I don't know man. Some people like it, some people don't. If you don't like it don't get it, it's pretty simple. This game isn't much different from any prior Rockstar open world game. You have an open world with a number of missions that require you to travel around the map...
