    Dead Space remake (2023)

    VRS patch helped, but DLSS still looks horrible:

    Dead Space remake (2023)

    Not sure why that looks so different. I took the screen shot, hit escape, changed settings, took another screen shot. Here's another comparison I took just now: DLSS looks like someone smeared vaseline all over the screen. If you told me the game was using DLSS 1, I...

    Dead Space remake (2023)

    MOST of the time it works great. I can't think of ANY DLSS 2 titles where I prefer native. But this is BAD. Reminds me of when I stayed up late eagerly awaiting the BF5 DLSS patch the night it released, only to think "WTF IS THIS GARBAGE" when I enabled it. The yellow crate here in this screen...

    Dead Space remake (2023)

    Game looks like ass with DLSS on, apparently due to forced variable rate shading: Performance is a bit all over the map, but no issues otherwise.

    Are souls type games your cup of tea?

    I've played about an hour into DS1, DS3, and Bloodborne, but none of them enticed me to come back. The whole "lose over and over and over until you memorize the enemy movements and timing for when you can actually attack" is about as un-fun as it gets for me. And don't get me started on the ever...

    The favorite games you played in 2022

    1. God of War Ragnarok - Didn't quite live up to the 2018 reboot IMO, but was still by far the best/most polished release we saw in 2022. 2. Spider-Man Remastered/Miles Morales - Unfortunately purchased on PS5 right before the PC release dates were announced. But fantastically fun games with...

    Best Game Graphics of 2022- Another Great Year for State-of-the-Art Visuals

    This cross-gen garbage is holding us back even worse than consoles ever have. Also strange not seeing GoW Ragnarok up there. Similar to all the other console games on the list, it was carried HARD by its artwork.

    Battlefield 2042

    Similar to Battlefield? Not really.

    Horizon Forbidden West

    Say an enemy is weak against poison. You whip out your crappy poison weapon and spam poison arrows or whatever until the status effect bar fills up. This feels like you're fighting a rhinoceros with a sling shot, but now they're 'status effected' and seem to take additional damage from all...

    Horizon Forbidden West

    The first ~1 hour didn't really hook me when I finally got my PS5 earlier this year, but I finally made my way back to the game this week. Now 14 hours in, I'm... pretty disappointed. Horizon Zero Dawn (on PC) was by far one of my favorite games I played in 2020. At 60 hours played, nothing...

    High on Life

    Played a couple hours so far. It's semi-funny and semi-fun to play. But if it wasn't on Gamepass, I certainly wouldn't be buying it. Maybe in the $10 price range it would worth picking up. No HDR is a big letdown. AutoHDR doesn't work either for some reason. Graphics aren't all that great...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    Apparently the game still doesn't support 21:9, what an absolute joke. 3440x1400, ultra+ or whatever settings, RT enabled, and DLSS Quality pulls a whopping 30ish FPS on my 2080 Ti. Yet somehow looks far worse than other demanding RT titles that run better (Metro Exodus, Control, Watch Dogs...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Ghost of Tsushima (PS5 edition). It's... somewhat above average I guess... The worst part is the HDR implementation (or lack therefore of?). Dark scenes feel WAY too dark. But daytime scenes look correct. So adjusting the in-game brightness so that you can actually see anything in night scenes...

    God of War: Ragnarök

    Ragnarok was certainly no God of War 2018, but the fact that they lost to Elden Ring for GotY is absolutely criminal.

    How much do you have to spend approx to play current games at 4k 120mhz refresh rate?

    Well OP is asking what it takes to play at 120 fps, so your opinion that 60 fps is "good enough" isn't really relevant to the topic at hand.

    You're Most Anticipated 2023 Games

    If there's a CP2077 expansion/DLC coming out next year, that's definitely #1. RE4 remake. Dead Space remake. Returnal PC port (hopefully it's real). I guess if The Last of Us finally makes its way to PC, I'll actually play it (third time buying it is a charm, right?). That's pretty much it, in...

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Deathloop At $20 on sale, I finally decided to bite... tl;dr - this is possibly the worst game Arkane has ever made, aside from that Wolfenstein garbage they were associated with. Not to say it's BAD, but it's certainly no Dishonored. Graphics... mediocre. The game runs like shit, even with...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Playing Spider Man Remastered on PS5. Need to get through this one before the PC version comes out so that I'm not tempted to buy it a third time before playing it. I'm about 2/3 through already and the game is phenomenal. The visual quality and peformance in RT Performance mode is simply...

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

    I was unaware of an HDMI 2.1 version. The PG32UQX supports DSC, but not HDMI 2.1, so clearly there's a way for G-Sync to support DSC without this latest version you speak of.

    Games you liked that (almost) everyone hated

    Almost everyone hated Doom Eternal? That's news to me... it was very well received both critically and publicly from what I recall... Personally, I think it is BY FAR the best (single player) first person shooter released in the past 20+ years. Doom 2016 was incredible when it came out, but...

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

    When the screen flashes full white, yes I would like my monitor to make me squint. I calibrate to 120 nits for SDR content. Not sure what that has to do with anything, but you brought it up.

    2080 Super vs. 3070Ti: Do you recommend the upgrade?

    You decided the performance difference wasn't worth $290 two years ago when you bought your 2080 Super. Why the change of heart now?

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

    The 32EP950 hits 700 nits? Says who? HDTVTest measured 551 nits on a 10% window. Maybe with a window the size of a gnat it can hit 700... but who cares about that? It's only rated for 250 nits on full screen white, which is the same as the AW3423DW... and the biggest downfall of OLED. Of course...

    Elden Ring (From Software RPG)

    No ultrawide support. Graphics are last gen (at best) but the performance is reportedly terrible. From Soft always has, and always will, treat PC users as second class citizens.

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

    The Alienware QD-OLED has HDR as well... Low peak brightness, but also zero bloom. To say either display is definitively "better" than the other is downright ridiculous. Both have many "features" that different people will have very polarizing opinions on.

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

    Not the PG32UQX, which is the topic of this thread. 34" UW can also be bought for as low as $600 (or less).
