    FF VII: Remake. New news/teaser trailer

    The combat system in FF games hasn't been that deep since FF5 released; you aren't purchasing a FF game for it's combat systems.

    I did. And Director's Cut. "Chris, it's me, Rebecca." "..." "..." "..." "..." "..." "..." "Is that you Rebecca?" Fun times.

    Resident Evil 2 (2019)

    Out of curiosity, did you play the original RE1/DC, or REMake? Because I still love the Gamecube Remake of 1. I agree on most of the other points. As for the spinoffs, they basically suck, though Gaiden on the GBC is interesting. Revelations was a hot mess, and I'm honestly not expecting...

    Resident Evil 2 (2019)

    I'm actually up to Revelations 2; clearing out some of the rest of my game library at the moment. Six wasn't that bad from what I recall, but definitely more action heavy compared to the classics.

    Pretty much this. The only "puzzle" where he could be a legit threat would be in the library, especially if you didn't previously clear it out. Even then, juking him isn't that terribly hard.

    Number of Switch vs. Wii games launched over first 3 years

    Digital Store + ReMakes + Emulated titles. Same general rules apply going back to the N64 days: First party stuff is fine, the rest is generally crapware with the odd diamond in the rough laying around.

    Resident Evil 2 (2019)

    While I agree on the third person camera, do keep in mind that ammo was so plentiful in the original RE2 that you were *never* even in remote danger of running out. RE2 was BY FAR the easiest of all the classic Resident Evils. The problem I have with the Mr X implementation is twofold...

    Resident Evil 2 (2019)

    That's why I like both REMake and the RE2 Remake, as Capcom went back to ammo scarcity being a thing. At times (especially early) you *barely* had enough ammo to do the job.

    HDMI 2.1 120Hz Adaptive 4K OLED goodness: LG 2019 updates C&D models!

    B6 owner here, yet another person who's jumping on the CX train once it comes out. Nothing else really comes close right now. I'm hoping CX sales are enough to wake up the rest of the display market.

    Load times actually would improve if things aren't being pre-loaded into RAM. Cutscenes are used a *lot* these days to hide area transitions, as they make good opportunities to pre-load the next area. Your still bound by how much you can cram into RAM/VRAM though.

    Resident Evil 2 (2019)

    5 isn't *horrible*, but it really does want to be a two-person co-op rather then a single player third person shooter. It had some good ideas, but was a bit all over the place all things considered.

    Which MMO has the best and worst economy?

    Hard to quantify, given everyone has a different interpretation of "the best" MMO economy. All I'll say is that EVE is by far the mot realistic.

    The NEW Doom Trilogy Console Ports: There's Good News And Bad News

    To be fair, the changes were probably done in order to allow for a German release.

    LG 48CX

    The irony here is that the TV people over at AVSforum are of the mindset of "nothing to see here", as they view the CX as a minor upgrade to the C9 at best. It's the PC population that's hyped for the CX, the TV population is much less excited.

    You know, maybe Crysis's performance issues were more due to poor coding rather then the graphics? Just a thought.

    LG 48CX

    Out of curiosity, what's the point of BFI with Gsync (or any other form of VRR)?. After all, isn't the point of VRR to get around fixed refresh rates?

    Xbox series X

    There's the HDMI 2.1 confirmation we've been expecting. Surprising they aren't using USB-C though; that's genuinely surprising.

    Resident Evil 3 (2020)

    To be fair, only the last choice really had any impact on the ending, and only really affeced the route through the Sewage Treatment Plant and whether you fought Nikolai or not. It's not like anything is being lost by focusing on a single narrative.

    LG 48CX

    Which isn't shocking, given the C9 series already supported HDMI 2.1.

    4k @ 120hz without compression?

    The port is more or less meaningless; the reason DP is featured more now is that higher end monitors needed the extra bandwidth DP offered to get high refresh/resolution combinations. At least in the short term, that trend is being reversed and I'd expect a more even balance of HDMI 2.1/DP 1.4...

    Next Gen Consoles

    But you need to remember: Anything devs create *must* run on the weaker console. So yes, while there will be a number of titles that offer 4k options on the more powerful console, there will be just as many that have to downgrade things in order to run acceptably on the weaker of the two. A...

    Best PC gaming controller in 2020?

    Yeah, still using a wired 360 controller. It does the job and you know it's going to work.

    FF VII: Remake. New news/teaser trailer

    To be fair, the original game was pretty damn easy, outside of a few spots. And I always felt AP gained *way* too slowly for the amount of Materia options you had.

    LG 48CX

    For what it's worth, I haven't seen anything to confirm Ampere will support HDMI 2.1. That being said, I'd be genuinely shocked if they didn't.

    LG 48CX

    No, he's right, HDMI 2.0 can handle 4k120Hz at 4:2:0. HDR content is limited to 4k60Hz @ 4:2:2 though.

    LG 48CX

    It pretty much comes down to what the desktop is set to. When running any application any mode aside from exclusive fullscreen, the desktop settings control video output. That being said, given the Desktop is going to update at a steady 60 fps, I don't think there's much you can do to make VRR...

    LG 48CX

    From the forbes link: I'd be interesting to see how they pulled that off; more NVIDIA under-the-hood magic? Any limitations (HDR/Chroma)? I'll defer judgement until rtings measures it, but it sounds like LG is pretty confident input lag has improved somewhat.

    LG pretty much hit all the notes in their keynote. NVIDIA, release a damn HDMI 2.1 capable GPU already. *Insert "Take My Money" picture here*

    Next Gen Consoles

    I note again this limits what devs can do; their games have to run on both versions, so while the more powerful version may have access to some special features, the weaker one is what determines size and scope.

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

    Because they know the people who are going to purchase these will pay the cost; they are targeting premium customers after all. And yes, this makes no financial sense; just get the 48" LG C10 when it comes out later this year.

    4k @ 120hz without compression?

    I'm assuming this years crop of GPUs will support HDMI 2.1, and possibly DP 2.0 (though that spec isn't final yet, so I doubt the second). I'm hoping to hear something by mid-march.

    Resident Evil 3 Remake

    That ain't saying much. Dino Crisis 2 was fine (story aside), but the first really wasn't that good. I'd be down for a re-imagining though.

    Resident Evil 3 Remake

    I will say this: The first Dino Crisis was *not* a good game, especially when compared to Resident Evil. If they remake it rather then remaster, it has potential though.

    Same. Shame the third came out so late in the DS lifecycle, and didn't get the sales to keep the series going.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Official Thread

    Combat was never the Witcher series strong suit; that's a valid argument against the series. Also to be fair, Geralt isn't *supposed* to be likeable. But the writing, especially in the third game, was superb.

    LG plugs NVIDIA G-Sync into its 2019 OLED TVs
