    Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy

    Holy shit I fixed my performance issues!!! For those who recall, I was complaining about low GPU usage (sometimes as low as 40%) resulting in absolutely horrendous frame rates despite having a 9900k and a 3080 Ti. You know what it was? CPU C-States. I had to disable C-States in the BIOS and it...

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

    Are we sure the 42" is going to be cheaper than the 48"? Reason I ask is because I remember the 55" being cheaper than the 48".

    Battlefield 2042

    I wouldn't say that. There are still cheaters running around in BF1.

    Battlefield 2042

    Yeah atmosphere/tone is so weird. The story sets up this depressing ass post-apocalyptic world and then the gameplay is basically Saturday morning cartoon characters duking it out while spewing corny one liners. But I guess I shouldn't be sad. That's just how it works out sometimes.

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    What do they consider burn in though? Is there any fine print that describes how severe it needs to be before replacement? I guarantee you that every person who runs a taskbar on these 24/7 is going to have some form of burn in within 3 years.

    Poll - Computer Monitor: Antiglare vs Reflective?

    Reflective because every so often the screen goes black and I get a glimpse of this really good looking person.

    Battlefield 2042

    If anything I have to thank BF2042 for getting me back into BF1. Sometimes it takes a turd to realize how good you had it back then. Even if 2042 contains some semblance of "fun", the way the leadership is handling this launch makes me never want to play it again. Blaming the community for...

    Battlefield 2042

    I think it's because it's a massive effort to create something of this scale which equates to $$$, and you'd be competing with the Battlefield name which carries a lot of risk. Unfortunately it's all about the money and pleasing investors these days, so the big studios won't take those risks...

    Battlefield 2042

    Steam Charts shows the player count dipping into the 6000's these past couple of days. Absolute insanity. I bet it's going to sink below BF1 at some point.

    Samsung 34" QD-OLED

    On the plus side, it's much easier to drive than 4k. And with 175Hz, it's going to feel a good bit more fluid. And come on, it's ultrawide. Ultrawide is awesome, especially for sims. I know you can run a custom ultrawide resolution on the LGs, but that's just a recipe for uneven panel wear.

    Battlefield 2042

    Yeah I found the issue too. White text on a busy background. Almost got a migraine trying to read that.

    LG 48CX

    Any word if the new models will eliminate near black VRR flicker? That would be the only reason worth upgrading for me.

    Halo Infinite

    From what I read, DX12 games don't need exclusive full screen. Borderless should yield the exact same performance. I do wish it could run exclusive full screen though. I don't like to run gsync in windowed mode. I recall some desktop apps having performance issues with it on.

    Battlefield 2042

    I fired up BF1 last night for comparison and holy hell what a game that is. Before you even enter a match you're hit with this incredible orchestrated score. The UI is super polished, speedy, and functional. Then you enter a game and the graphics and atmosphere blow your fucking face off. How...

    Ready or Not: tactical SWAT game

    It's available on Steam early access as of today. $40 Can anyone comment if it's worth it? Is it a good amount of content and replayability for $40? I'm very skeptical of early access stuff.
