    What is your "coping" strategy for the time until you can get a latest-model Nvidia/AMD GPU?

    My beloved 2070-Super has started making weird clicking noises whenever the fans turn on... really hoping this doesn't mean I gotta do something stupid-spendy in the near future... So yeah, I've been holding out for a 3080 TI, but I'm not ok with spending over about $800, fuck spending $1400+...

    Cyberpunk 2077’s first major update coming in the next 10 days

    I'm still holding out to play until I can re-map all of my controls. Need to re-map the Use key from F to E, quick-whatever from Q to F, and need to put the Inventory, Quests, Character-Specs, Weapon-Reloading, and a bunch of other stuff on my mouse buttons, which are all set to the wrong...

    Cyberpunk 2077 Player Discussion Thread

    I fired it up for a few minutes last night. It was running a lot smoother than I expected, but I didn't get outside the starting Corpo building yet. On i5-6600k, RTX2070S, 32GB, and only running at 1080, I was getting upper-50's fps most of the time. Settings were Ultra with Ray-Tracing and...

    Gamers hate the Epic Game Store but spent $680 million there anyway.

    It feels pretty gratifying to have like 20+ games on their store without paying a single dime for any of them... But seriously, I'm never paying them a single dime ever. So just put everything on Steam so I can keep my library all in one place. I don't appreciate them fucking with my neat tidy...

    Steam and Epic Christmas Sale 12/19/2019

    lol - you made me go check the page again to be sure. I got the sale price, but deff paid too much. I'm too impatient to play RDR2 and just happy to see it on Steam finally. Ended up paying $54.99 for the "Special Edition" after sale and another $5 off from the steam holiday tokens.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I bit the bullet and got it on Steam today. Guessing this will be the motivation I need to finally upgrade from my GPU.

    Steam and Epic Christmas Sale 12/19/2019

    Well, I'm a sucker this year - just bought RDR2 and AC:Odyssey mid-level editions for a total of $97 so far. Think that's the most I've spent on any steam sale since the very beginning when we could get tons and tons of bundled games for that price...

    Netflix Test Varying Play Speeds: Makes Filmmakers Mad

    Yeah, I've been using a browser plugin to adjust play speed for a few months now - don't think I can ever go back to normal 1x speed viewing again. A lot of shitty movies on NetFlix are a lot more endurable when you can power through them at 1.2-1.5x speed. Sometimes I'll completely loose...

    Rage 2

    Question: are there any upgrade-able vehicles in the game besides the Phoenix? I held off on doing a lot of the convoy fights until I had the Pheonix all upgraded, and now that I can attack convoys I'm racking up tons of auto parts that I can't spend. Hoping I find at least one more vehicle I...

    Red Dead Redemption 2 Coming to PC November 5th

    Sweet! Been looking forward to this, but I'll still be waiting 'till it gets a steam discount. Hopefully it goes for <$40 sometime around xmas. ...I wonder if this will be the excuse I need to finally buy a new video card. I had decided my next GPU should be one that comes with a free copy of...

    Rage 2

    WTF - lol, well thanks for the info at least. Yeah, no voices in the towns for me. I bought Rage2 through Steam - why would I need to login to Bathesda?? Took me a while to figure out my login... now I'm logged into and their launcher - no idea if that's going to make a difference...

    Rage 2

    I just finished the main quest today - perfect timing! Ready to start the expansion now, but I can't figure out how to get to the new zone. Any ideas? I tried just driving across the valley to get to the new map area, but it wouldn't let me "leave the known world." :cautious:

    Rage 2

    It's on sale for $20 this weekend. I don't have high hopes, but I'm ready for something new so trying it anyways...

    For Honor & Alan Wake [EPIC Store] Free Till [DEAD]

    Nice move by Epic here! I like a lot of Ubi games, even though I prefer to keep them on Steam. For Honor was one I was waiting to pay about $5 for, but this move by Epic means I'm one step closer to accepting their platform for other games. (only another 92 steps to go...) Also interesting that...
