Working to improve it? Isn't the game like 20 years old?

Re: PC Gaming Thread

Well thanks for checking and providing the info. The introduction trailer on the main site is nothing short of amazing with countless ship & station designs and space as you've never seen. There's is a lot going on and more of a Space Strategy base than Space Sim....which I'm looking at Elite Dangerous now. It's on the PS4 where it's on sale...But with Eve, that's a bit scary on that report of player retention. I tried to look up videos and beginner guides, just the plotting the star chart was a chore. I saw this on what's out there....

Faction and Agent System with 20 NPC Factions and 170 NPC corporations containing a mission system with over 5600 NPC Agents to interact with. - Encounters in Space with 5.000 solar systems and 5.000 stations, 14.000 stargates, 43.000 planets and 230.000 moons in 40 different regions.....

Re: PC Gaming Thread

So now that we have more DLSS 2.0 games coming out, has anyone tried any out?

People seem to be extremely impressed with how well Death Stranding used it.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

I'm curious to check that out. I'm holding out until the 30XX's are released and then I plan to upgrade my 1070. Hopefully, just in time for Cyberpunk!

The new Nvidia 3070 and 3080 cards look awesome. Shame they'll be so hard to get for a couple of months once they're released.

Iím probably going to forgo a new console this year for one of these cards. I know Iím going to get more mileage out of my PC for the foreseeable future, so this makes sense.

Just not sure which one to go with - 70 or 80. Iím upgrading from a 1070. Iíd really like to future proof and go with the 3080, but itís a little pricey for me, and I think it might be overkill for what I actually need.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

The 3070 is stronger than the 2080 Ti at a fraction of the cost, and that card is overkill for a lot of stuff.

That said, you can future proof with the 3090 too to ensure all the visuals comes out right.

10 minutes until 3080's go up for sale (if the rumors have been true). Time to play "refresh a web page till my fingers bleed".

I did not expect to have more trouble getting a new card compared to a PS5...but looks like everyone is out and I couldn't nab one. D:

YMMV but Amazon international sites are seeing some inventory available if anyone is looking to get one at retail price.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

I bought this 2070 back in April 2020, still going strong, but 3080 is tempting. Good that it is out of stock, temptation averted.

Unless you have a 4k monitor I don't think there's any reason to upgrade from a 2070/2080 right away. Those should handle high fps at 1440p for any current game.

I was really considering the 3080, but I think I'm gonna go with the 3070. I'm just looking for solid 1440/144 at my desktop and 4K/60 out in the living room. Upgrading a 1070.

I'm eyeing potentially getting the 3070 sometime after release. Need to finally upgrade from this old R7 370 4GB card.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

I have a 2070 Super from earlier this year, and I can't lie - I'm tempted to do a new build with a 3080 at some point.

Players think scalping is just for a new or special edition console....saw this when looking for stories on the PS5 already being listed on Ebay....

Scalpers Sell Preorders of GeForce RTX 3080 for Over $1,200 https://www.tomshardware.com/uk/news...-3080-scalpers

This is not new news, we already know this.

Stupid scalpers do this for any hot in demand new product, including sneakers.

Apparently the code for Crysis remastered is as poorly optimized as the original, but with higher resolution settings and textures, and more graphical options.

Metal Gear, MGS, and MGS 2 Substance are now on GOG. https://www.gog.com/partner/konami?u...tw&utm_term=EN

Though yeah, MGS looks just awful.

Re: PC Gaming Thread

It's interesting that they skipped Metal Gear 2: Solid Snake. I'm guessing it's because it didn't have a DOS/Windows port. In fact, it looks like those three games are the only ones that had a PC version made before the series eventually returned to PC in 2013 with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

I wonder if GOG would ever consider selling the console versions of some games via a console emulator. It's probably a huge legal hurdle they don't want to bother with. There's some titles are GOG that are emulating something other than DOS, but it looks to me mainly old arcade hardware, or the Amiga. I guess the original Bards Tale trilogy is the Apple IIGS versions being emulated.

I wish they'd just get permission to legally emulate Twin Snakes. Just license out Dolphin dammit.

...or a proper remake, that'd be nice too.

Well, after quite a battle and a bit of luck... I nabbed a 3080 tonight! I'm going to do a new build around it and am pretty stoked.
