    Battlefield 2042

    RT in this game absolutely murders performance for minimal visual gain. That's a simple fact, and it has nothing to do with the game being CPU bound (which it is, in many cases).

    Battlefield 2042

    It's really bad when someone can simply watch gameplay videos and not actually play it, but still realize that the game is an absolute disaster.

    Battlefield 2042

    No, there is not. It doesn't show other players, player pings, player scores, or anything else that could be associated with a scoreboard. Pressing tab just shows an unattractive looking display of some personal statistics.

    Battlefield 2042

    Someone already posted a decently comprehensive list of "actionable information": https://hardforum.com/threads/battlefield-2042.2003186/page-40#post-1045191942 It's hard to take people like you seriously when they don't even read the thread they're replying to.

    You make me want to vomit. It's objectively terrible.

    Battlefield 2042

    Yes, I own the game. It's the worst "battlefield" title I've ever played.

    Battlefield 2042

    Uh, classic battlefield games had a class system, a scoreboard, a server browser, and many other things that are completely missing from this game. Nothing about this game feels like a battlefield game other than the name.

    Battlefield 2042

    Well, at least they fixed the frametime spikes, so it's playable compared to the beta. But otherwise, it's still a disappointing train wreck of a game.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    No doubt about it sticking with you. I'll never forget how disappointing and overrated it was, that's for damn sure.

    Forza Horizon 5 (Mexico)

    What's with the complete lack of an HDR calibration option? They just give two random sliders with no real explanation of what the values mean or reference images. I guess it would have made too much sense for them to keep the existing and functional HDR calibration menu they had in FH4... Why...

    Far Cry 6

    I hope you're right. FC3>FC4>FC5. So if this is a mixture of 3+4, that's a HUGE step in the right direction.

    Battlefield 2042

    WTF is with the frame times in this game open beta? Even with all "low" settings, the game still runs like absolute garbage. Despite 100+ fps averages, the frame times look like a damn Etch-a-Sketch. Routinely seeing spikes into the high 20ms and mid 30ms range. Is this a Windows 11 issue or is...

    Far Cry 6

    Kind of what I figured. I thought the game had a female protagonist from the clips I had originally seen, but the video the polonyc2 posted mentioned you could play either so I wasn't sure. Eh... female Eivor was pretty terrible. I tried switching after reading online about how female Eivor was...

    Far Cry 6

    So this is another genius Ubisoft "choose between the male or female version of the same character" game? Ugh. AC Odyssey and AC Valhalla pulled this crap, and both games had one version of the protagonist that was FAR better than the other. I'm not thrilled at the idea of having a 50/50 shot...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    RDR2 is inferior to GTA V in every conceivable way as far as I'm concerned. Kind of unfair for me to compare RDR1 to RDR2, since it has been at least 7-8 years since I played the original. But I don't recall ever screaming at the original to HURRY UP or COME ONNNNNN. I remember it being one of...

    New World

    The 2000 player server cap seems strangely low to me. How many players could WoW/EQ/Lineage 2/etc servers support back in the day? Seemed like way more than 2000 at the time...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Red Dead Redemption 2 51 hours later, I've finally finished this so-called "masterpiece" of a game. Tl;dr - This was EASILY the most over rated game I've played in recent history. Graphically the game is quite great looking, but it has a few major issues: TAA looks like a blurry mess, and the...

    Any quiet 10-keyLESS keyboards?

    So you'll pay an obscene amount of money for a silent graphics card, but $125 for a keyboard is unfathomable?

    Any quiet 10-keyLESS keyboards?

    Well there are (relatively) inexpensive graphics cards that perform the same functions with comparable quality as the one you happily spent $1,700 on, so what is the issue here?

    Diablo II Resurrected: Offical Thread

    Diablo 3 (assuming you mean modern post-RoS diablo 3) is a black hole where you waste your life away in exchange for paragon levels. Diablo 2 is a black hole where you waste your life away in exchange for uber godly gg lootz.Oh, and PvP. This game actually had PvP. Why Blizzard decided to remove...

    Any quiet 10-keyLESS keyboards?

    Something with brown switches should be quiet enough. TLK is niche as it is in the mechanical world (don't get me started about the BS 60% craze). Good luck finding a membrane TKL keyboard.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    No, it's a DLC where you play as different character through a completely different story. It's about 6 hours long and definitely worth playing through if you enjoy the main game.

    Is 2021 a dud for gaming?

    Hitman 3 was a hit in my opinion (terrible pun intended). Outriders was a huge disappointment. Days Gone was fantastic, if you want to count the PC version coming out this year as a 2021 release. The Ascent was also a pleasant surprise. I think that's all I've played that released this year...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Been playing Red Dead Redemption 2. Just finished chapter 3. Really cannot understand how this game was praised as the greatest thing since sliced bread. It's a good game, yes, but it's nothing outrageously special. It's truly baffling that Rockstar put out this game 5 years after GTA V. Such a...

    Marvel's Avengers

    Picked this up on GMG for $18 (XP summer sale 24% off code deal - still going on until 8/5 FYI) and don't regret it at all. The single player campaign and two 'expansions' gave me a solid 20 hours of gameplay. The graphics are quite nice, and the HDR was downright stunning. Lots of bright colors...

    Who ran Haswell-E for a long time or is still running it?

    5900x for $549 on Amazon

    Probably a terrible time to buy a new CPU, but I finally caved. I've been itching for an upgrade for a while, and losing ~8% CPU performance going to Windows 11 pushed me over the edge I guess.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Let's be realistic here, how many people spending $3,000 on a PC gaming monitor would use built-in speakers? It would make no sense for them to spend the time/money/physical room inside the display to implement something that nearly their entire customer base would not use.

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    Rumor was that this monitor would retail for $3,600... $3,000 sounds like a steal in comparison. I got sick of waiting, and felt sick at the thought of a $3,600 price, so I caved and bought a PG35VQ... Now that the mythical 32" 120hz+ 4k HDR dream monitor has finally arrived, I'm not sure I...

    PG32UQX - ASUS 32" 4K 144 Hz HDR1400 G-Sync Ultimate

    So for the folks that have gotten their hands on this holy grail of monitors already... the #1 question... how is the fan noise? Bonus points if you can compare it to the PG35VQ. Given the previously rumored $3,600 price tag for this thing, 3 grand flat sounds like an absolute steal in...
