    I actually have the top post on the It Takes Two subreddit thanks to Cutie the elephant. :D

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    The stuttering was recently patched as noted in the post above yours. The blurring may be the dynamic resolution kicking in. See: https://www.nexusmods.com/finalfantasy7remake/mods/22?tab=description&BH=0

    Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

    Holy shit I fixed my performance issues!!! For those who recall, I was complaining about low GPU usage (sometimes as low as 40%) resulting in absolutely horrendous frame rates despite having a 9900k and a 3080 Ti. You know what it was? CPU C-States. I had to disable C-States in the BIOS and it...

    Dell Alienware AW3423DW 34″ QD-OLED 175Hz (3440 x 1440)

    Are we sure the 42" is going to be cheaper than the 48"? Reason I ask is because I remember the 55" being cheaper than the 48".

    Battlefield 2042

    I wouldn't say that. There are still cheaters running around in BF1.

    Battlefield 2042

    Yeah atmosphere/tone is so weird. The story sets up this depressing ass post-apocalyptic world and then the gameplay is basically Saturday morning cartoon characters duking it out while spewing corny one liners. But I guess I shouldn't be sad. That's just how it works out sometimes.

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    What do they consider burn in though? Is there any fine print that describes how severe it needs to be before replacement? I guarantee you that every person who runs a taskbar on these 24/7 is going to have some form of burn in within 3 years.

    Poll - Computer Monitor: Antiglare vs Reflective?

    Reflective because every so often the screen goes black and I get a glimpse of this really good looking person.

    Battlefield 2042

    If anything I have to thank BF2042 for getting me back into BF1. Sometimes it takes a turd to realize how good you had it back then. Even if 2042 contains some semblance of "fun", the way the leadership is handling this launch makes me never want to play it again. Blaming the community for...

    Battlefield 2042

    I think it's because it's a massive effort to create something of this scale which equates to $$$, and you'd be competing with the Battlefield name which carries a lot of risk. Unfortunately it's all about the money and pleasing investors these days, so the big studios won't take those risks...

    Battlefield 2042

    Steam Charts shows the player count dipping into the 6000's these past couple of days. Absolute insanity. I bet it's going to sink below BF1 at some point.

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    On the plus side, it's much easier to drive than 4k. And with 175Hz, it's going to feel a good bit more fluid. And come on, it's ultrawide. Ultrawide is awesome, especially for sims. I know you can run a custom ultrawide resolution on the LGs, but that's just a recipe for uneven panel wear.

    Yeah I found the issue too. White text on a busy background. Almost got a migraine trying to read that.

    LG 48CX

    Any word if the new models will eliminate near black VRR flicker? That would be the only reason worth upgrading for me.

    Halo Infinite

    From what I read, DX12 games don't need exclusive full screen. Borderless should yield the exact same performance. I do wish it could run exclusive full screen though. I don't like to run gsync in windowed mode. I recall some desktop apps having performance issues with it on.

    Battlefield 2042

    I fired up BF1 last night for comparison and holy hell what a game that is. Before you even enter a match you're hit with this incredible orchestrated score. The UI is super polished, speedy, and functional. Then you enter a game and the graphics and atmosphere blow your fucking face off. How...

    Ready or Not: tactical SWAT game

    It's available on Steam early access as of today. $40 Can anyone comment if it's worth it? Is it a good amount of content and replayability for $40? I'm very skeptical of early access stuff.

    Ars Technica article: No end to chip shortages

    To put it simply, high demand. The PS5 in its first fiscal year has outsold the PS4 in its first fiscal year despite the chip shortages.

    Battlefield 2042

    I feel like that's been a trend for a lot of games lately. A few off the top of my head: Deathloop, Far Cry 6, Guardians of the Galaxy. All went on sale very quickly.

    Battlefield 2042

    My other complaint about this game (and all Battlefields really) is how short the matches are. Just when I feel like I'm settling in the stupid end match music starts playing. I rarely get to visit all capture points because the match is over in like 20 minutes. With maps of these size, I'd like...

    Battlefield 2042

    This game is definitely growing on me. I'm starting to see the ways of the r/lowsodium2042 community. Most of my complaints stemmed from the fact that I suck. But I'm slowly getting better. Stodeh put out a video today on how good the SCAR is so I took his advice and damn. This thing is OP. The...

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    Is this worth playing now or is it better to wait for all the games to be available and binge em all?

    Battlefield 2042

    Absolutely. I'm not advocating clown skins, I'm just responding to the "who cares what you look like, it's first person" claim.

    Battlefield 2042

    You see them in 3rd person in vehicles and while gliding. But it's not all about seeing yourself. It's about other people seeing you. Not everybody wants to be seen as generic Sundance clone #3257. Real life is first person as well but we still buy stylish clothes, put on makeup, and style our...

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    Because games are fun man. Not everybody is playing against the likes of Shroud. Some of us play on public servers against randoms which doesn't require a super duper 360 Hz refresh rate to be effective.

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    Even if you do play multiplayer shooters you don't need 120+ fps unless you're playing competitively. Public servers aren't exactly filled with elite players with top of the line hardware.

    Alan Wake 2

    Yeah I'm a bit skeptical. I loved the pacing of the first game and it achieved a feeling of horror through the atmosphere that it presented. But this is Remedy, so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

    It Takes Two

    Correct, co-op only. But only one person needs to buy it.

    It Takes Two

    Yes. Play it with a good friend / partner, don't take it too seriously, and enjoy. And especially enjoy the zero in game purchases, zero loot boxes, zero bullshit. Just pure straight up game like the old days.

    Halo Infinite

    This is a weird complaint. There's a ton of games that switch from 1st to 3rd person when you enter a vehicle. Vehicles are just easier to drive in 3rd person and you're much more aware of your surroundings without the vehicle's interior taking up the majority of your view.

    Guys, YOU CAN PET THE DOG. This changes EVERYTHING. Get ready for the influx of new players and positive reviews.

    Battlefield 2042

    I'm having a lot of fun with the Infected Portal mode. It's a simple 64 infected vs. 64 defenders type mode. The infected are all Sundance characters so they can attack from the ground or air. The defenders generally stick together at high points on the map (towers, roofs, bridges, etc...). So...

    Battlefield 2042

    Skin creation is done by the art team, not software engineers. The bugs will be fixed at the same rate with or without new skins.

    Battlefield 2042

    Right. I don't know what the full intentions are for the Santa skin, but it sounds like it may be used for special holiday themed Portal events. In which case it's really not a big deal.

    Battlefield 2042

    So when BF4 does Christmas skins it's cool, but when BF2042 does it, it's the worst game of all time. Seems legit. Can't believe how different jackfrags sounds here:

    Acer Nitro Aopen 390hz

    Is there scientific proof that these competitive FPS gamers really benefit from 390 hz vs. say 300 hz? At some point the diminishing returns become so damn miniscule that it makes no sense to go higher.
