    Yeah, it needs to happen, in that order.

    HardOCP.com: Status Quo is No Mo

    This was seen coming for some time. When I saw Marques Brownlee review a 3090, I knew something was up. That video got nearly 10M views. Way beyond any hardware reviewer can do. No set GPU pricing and terrible game launches means PC gaming isn't dead but in zombie mode. It's not dead or alive...

    "Crysis 4" confirmed with new teaser from Cytek.

    Crytek, DICE, CD Red and Valve. My Mt Rushmore when I got into PC gaming in 2009. Things have changed too much to really care these days.

    Solid info on the bandwidth needed. Man, I just still can't believe my favorite series has been destroyed.

    Battlefield 2042

    Given the terrible coding of this game (they asked for help from devs that left late in the process), VOIP with 128 players will most likely be too much data to handle. They know what will break this fragile game and they're leaving out certain core features until they can figure out have to...

    Microsoft to buy Activision Blizzard

    Xbox is important, but never more important than Windows. MS goal is the metaverse and they will need PCs and Xbox talking to each other to achieve that. The Xbox gamepass gives users a reason to keep using Windows. I don't see myself using another operating system when I have an Xbox inside my...

    Battlefield 2042

    It's not about playing the mode, it's about the art direction of the game. MP maps come from SP. Without SP, in a war game, devs can't create environments that make sense. Fictional militaries and battlefields don't work. We need actual military superpowers and locations. The tone of the game...

    Star Citizen and Squadron 42 are still years from launch, CIG confirms

    The actual universe is still expanding, therefore unfinished. They should just release the game. I'm waiting for them to move the goal post again by saying, "We are switching game engines to harness the metaverse, moving the completion date to be in concert with the colonization of Mars."

    Battlefield 2042

    The Irish Exodus short film was perfect. Give me that underwater map in TDM and we have a winner. I'll never settle for a Battlefield game to not have a singleplayer again. SP sets the tone for the MP.

    Battlefield 2042

    Specialist, map design and atmosphere/tone are my top 3. The terrible UI is an honorable mention.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    As if I'm not savvy enough too also own stock that has performed well before and since the pandemic. Congratulations on the obvious. My GPUs are purchased through my business which has it's own benefits, the reason why I need more than 1.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    Please elaborate. Because AI and the metaverse is at the forefront of their business. GeForce Now is them showing a lot of love to PC gamers. Nvidia knows a 3080 12GB priced at $1200 isn't gamer focused pricing.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    I just bought three GPUs in the last 3 months when I couldn't find or buy any at reasonable prices the months before. I waited. Never sat on 24/7 streams. You think I'm just saying stuff? I just won another Newegg Shuffle yesterday. It's possible with patience.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    The leftovers are priced higher than first dibbs. Just don't buy it. Anyone that really wanted a card has had the opportunity to buy one at a reasonable price by now. This discussion is about MSRP, but more importantly Nvidia making scalping prices the new MSRP, starting with the 3080 12GB.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    Consumers have the power to kill off a company if they feel that company no longer meets their needs. No company is immune. If Nvidia continues to ignore their customer base for profits, the bottom will fall out and their competitors will fill the void. GPU dominance varies between generations...

    [H] Stock Alerts, Tips & Tears for AMD, Nvidia, Intel, PS5, XBOX

    Not really, forcing people to buy or StepUp to FTW3 cards isn't reasonable. The only time I've seen MSRP/stock cards is during the Newegg Shuffle.

    GPU MSRP is Not Meaningless @ HardOCP.com

    Nvidia's goal moving forward is to minimize profit above MSRP to retail. They will keep raising the price until the market can't bear it. So if an $500 extra can be made on a x80 part, they will raise the price to regain that profit so the retailers can't make a killing. If everyone's cap to...

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090 Ti is real

    The 4080 is going to make this look mid-tier. Unless you're mining, this will be instant buyers remorse. Stick with the 3080 until the 4000 series.

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    Interstellar surpassed the original Matrix for me for my #1 movie. When I saw it at the theater I literally lost track of time. My mind when numb once he said, "No, It's necessary". 1. Interstellar 2. Matrix 1 3. Inception I still don't know where to place TENET and I like it a lot, but it's...

    news!

    I stopped caring about max settings once SLI was killed off. Now I just find the best settings that will get me 144Hz in MP and 60Hz in SP.

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    We just thought 20 years later there would be some new CGI and action we never seen before. Maybe the Matrix franchise itself is stuck in the apex of civilization, the 20th century...... The story line can be seen on any cable tv network.

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    You can disagree, but your opinion doesn't move the needle. The verdict is in on this movie. I dislike movies that weaken male roles to strengthen female roles. Kill Bill was amazing and it didn't have to castrate everyone.

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    TENET stumbled right when the protagonist met the scientist to explain what inversion was. That scene was way too short. That was the whole movie but it didn't even matter because of how rushed it was. When directors rush the central meaning of a movie, the audience will have a negative...

    JOHN WICK 4 AND MATRIX 4 THREAD (All Keanu)

    It's a movie that has to be rewatched numerous times. I got it on my third watch and some assistance from YouTube. Not his best work but I don't think he was going for that. Like the Matrix Resurrections, I think he was trying to introduce an alternate reality that many people didn't quite...

    Nolan knows how to properly turn a mind into scrambled eggs with impressive action. TENET had a bit of the original feel Matrix in it.

    To be fair, Lilly didn't do Matrix 4 because she said, then him, becoming a woman the Matrix just wasn't apart of, now her, anymore. I think Lana should have taken the same POV. Let my favorite director, Christopher Nolan, take a shot at a Matrix Trilogy.

    The slow action makes you feel like time and space is being manipulated. Fast action is what we experience normally. We wanted a mind bending experience which is usually slow.

    Depending on a person beliefs, we are spirit beings having a human experience. Both are real, it's not a simulation but just experiencing different dimensions simultaneously.

    2077, 2042 and Matrix tells me that nothing great was created during the pandemic. Anything else important, please wait until we enter into the endemic phase. JW4 being delayed is a good thing.

    There's nothing complex about this movie. But continue to feel superior for some reason.
