Thread Anandtech bought an Intel i7 11700K a month early, and posted a review.
I feel very bad for those who need a new PC or building their first rig right now.. from supply lines, to make the current offer and etc it’s hard. I do expect things to improve by a large margin next year

Thread GIBiz: Returnal, Skyward Sword, Ratchet & Clank and the value of video games
As much excited as I am for Returnal, I’m gonna wait for a price drop. These are uncertain times, and honestly other than big games like Horizon I’m not really prepared to pay that price upfront for games

Thread Pokémon Legends: Arceus announced for Switch (Early 2022). Open World, turn-based
Well after Sword/Shield, I do have to agree they gotta step up their game if they wanna deploy some games on the current and upcoming Switch... Maybe talk to monolith or even Nintendo internal studios? I don't know but they gotta step up their game for sure cuz this ain't gonna cut it at 1080p less alone at 2160p if the Switch with DLSS that is rumored come to frutition

Thread Metro Exodus | OT| Life imitates Artyom
Man the monsters AI is very clunky, I'm picking normal because there's things in this game that just make no sense at all regarding what I previously said with the monsters. Humans AI is great and ok, but the above... Just makes me want to stick to normal.It's getting... To a point where I don't wanna buy games on Day 1.. look at RE2 it just runs beautifully and with great performance

Thread Metro Exodus | OT| Life imitates Artyom
My most hated parts in this game is everything that involves the monsters because the AI doesn't recognize you are there but then all of the sudden they jump at you like if they detected you... Makes no sense at all, I never attempt stealth around these bastards I go full guns blazing. I really hate the monsters AI, I love the human encounters thou. I'm sticking to normal because I really don't wanna get further frustrated with the game since I already have to look up stuff on YouTube because they don't explain the objectives properly one of the examples is the landmark mission where everything looks literally the same Sigh, off from RE2 where I was constantly being chased by Mr X and looking at YouTube for puzzles... To looking at YouTube in Metro because I have no idea what I'm doing with mission objectives

Thread CONTROL |OT| Welcome to This Oldest House of Leaves
Loving the game so far, getting the same wacky feelings from Alan Wake! Game looks really good on an OLED display... But colors seem a bit off due to the lack of HDR. The reds especially would benefit a ton from it since it would increase the many color palette

Thread Has anyone ever 'left' PC Gaming to go back to being console only?
Pretty much yeah, I only play World of Warcraft and CIV VI.. I own a 2070 SUPER but I'd rather play on the console on the sofa, plus most games I wanna play are either Sony or Nintendo exclusive these days

Thread For people who have beat both, which did you like more Control or Quantum Break? My issues with Control(spoilers for both games).
I like both games but Control despite having the same gameplay issues as QB, was more enjoyable due to the lore and being connected to Alan Wake pushes it forward for me :) (deeply connected)

Thread Stock Market ERA - Earning money with games
They are on a hiring spree at Blizzard for D4.. However World of Warcraft has never seen a worse time in it's life.. And yeah they rely on CoD as a big franchise and on Blizzard as a whole. It's not a bad company to hold out especially since if they do have a MW4 it's gonna be hot bread.

Thread Stock Market ERA - Earning money with games
.. As it stands right now I'm holding out until Anthem, I might be getting some stocks with the BFV downfall if it does happen. Anthem really got me pumped for those numbers... Today I'm taking at look at Micro and AMD..It's important for me to have those 2 because I have good feeling about their roadmaps I also got a few more Intel stocks this week due to the recent 10nm news. Just ordered some additional Take-Two stocks.. Waiting for 14:30GMT+0.

Thread Stock Market ERA - Earning money with games
Ah yes obviously my friend, I'm just saying that this Red Dead has some serious & smart marketing going on especially when it even has some cash add-on for GTA V Online. I'm very curious to see what happens, I only own one stock of Take-Two so I was interested increasing my portfolio for quick buck but in general to get some more. I'm also taking a look at AMD like I said in the post above... Also Intel.. Let's see what happens thou

Thread Hades |OT| Ah Hell, here we go again (Out of Early Access and on Switch!)
I was about to buy the game and saw that the support for Ultrawide is simply putting wallpapers on the side... ehhhhh not really the best approach in my book tbh. I might go for the Switch version instead

This already happened on Origins/Odyssey on the PC version. Honestly I hope they look into it for the next entry (hopefully next gen only)Not yet, also mid game there are a lot of issues regarding frame drop. Especially in your settlement

Thread AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Reveal |OT| Hey. Listen! Choo! Choo!
Honestly I’m not worried about the Ray Tracing performance as I have a 2070 and rarely use it for x amount of time. I’m really happy with the champs 6800 XT and 6900 XT are. I’m hoping the reviews are around the same level of performance we in saw in the event. What I’m a bit confused is regarding the 6900 XT will there be custom AIB cards?

Thread AMD Radeon™ RX 6000 Reveal |OT| Hey. Listen! Choo! Choo!
I’m curious about 6900XT, AIB cards. I’ll wait for full benchmarks but I end up getting either 6890 XT or 6900 XT and get a Freesync monitor in the process. (I have a X34 Predator) I’m really happy to be considering a full AMD build for next year. Also they giving out Shadowlands for those who buy it right? I can then refund the expansion

Thread To those of you who were able to improve their PS4 Pro's noise level, how did you do it?
Both my launch and God of War edition do a crap lot of noise. The problem is that I won't be able to fix it any further, tried changing the fan + thermal paste of both with no success. So I quit trying and use my Platinum while gaming lol

Thread Gaming Laptop Discussion Thread
Alright so i'm starting to need a gaming laptop post covid due to the amount of travels i'll be doing. I was maybe looking at Razer Blade 15.4 with the RTX2060 or the G14.. However I'm not sold on the capabilities of the G14 screens, everyone seems to be saying that the panel qualities suck. That's where the razer blade comes in.. sports both TB3 and a decent enough screen. Any advice?

Thread Jim Ryan: £70 is a fair price for PS5 games (The Telegraph)
I'll give you my opinion. I have a couple of family members living in Portugal and others in Greece. Some of them get paid 650€ as that is the minimum wage over there, as you can see a 80€ game decision can be complicated for this part of the world. Honestly I don't know. it makes me think 2 or 3 times regarding a purchase.

Yeah I went in 340 gear and had to pull stuff carefullyHonestly i'm not really sure but maybe a tune up to island exp and a new Warfront. I'm more worried about 8.3 and how they want to keep people subbed for 6 months... I'm still questioning myself if i'm buying the virtual ticket this year even thou

Thread World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth |OT2| Bless Your Heart
8.2 just came out and they already put out another Store mount with a 6 month subscription. Patch 8.3 might not even arrive before December... They are just pushing the end of Q2 due to fiscal report.Sadly it’s more because people have moved on from the game due to how class design and how game mechanics are this days. At least that’s what my 15 year old vanilla guild that just stopped raiding for the first time justified with.Yeah not just that but splitting an already small player base after 15 eyears sea takes its toll on the game. My problem with this is simple. Warcraft has always been about faction war, how do you move on from this to evolve a franchise which is still based on a game which is gonna be 15 years

Thread World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth |OT2| Bless Your Heart
As I always been saying since TBC. I'd rather wait for an expansion but have things properly fleshed out and ready for release, BFA was clearly not ready and we can definitely see how gameplay mechanics in both cases and game have really gone downhill ever since it's release. They need a major overhaul and that is only possible with a new expansion. I do hope whatever comes next is announced soon for some peace of mind... And at the very least.. be ready at it's release date, I'd rather have it internally delayed like TLOU2 tbh

Thread PlayStation 5 Pre-Order Discussion - EU/EMEA |OT| EU really love this console don't you?
In Portugal from what I can gather Sony Portugal itself isn't sure if there any more units coming. My sources in retailers tell me they are trying to negotiate with external suppliers from Spain (Sony Spain most likely) this previously happened with the 3DS and some other collector's editions where retailers like Media Markt and FNAC hit up other country retail group
