    Featured Does your perception of game graphics feel like it scales with the times?

    Yeah man, Half-Life 2 brought in super advanced concepts, such as using props and world physics in ways that could give you alternate ways of completing the same puzzles. The AI in Half-Life was pretty crazy as well... those dudes would chase you endlessly from one end of the map to the next...

    Does your perception of game graphics feel like it scales with the times?

    I have always been fond of good computer graphics. When I played King's Quest III, for example, I thought it was a drastic improvement over the first two games. When King's Quest IV was released, it was the first VGA title in the series and I was BLOWN...

    Having trouble purchasing a new 3000-series GPU?

    I personally knew that this was going to be a shit-show release. I figured the primary issue would be bot-purchases, so scalpers could capitalize on the overpriced resale of bulk purchases. What's funny though is that websites were DDoS'd, and stock...

    Featured Having trouble purchasing a new 3000-series GPU?

    I personally knew that this was going to be a shit-show release. I figured the primary issue would be bot-purchases, so scalpers could capitalize on the overpriced resale of bulk purchases. What's funny though is that websites were DDoS'd, and stock was completely depleted within 30 seconds of...

When King's Quest IV was released, it was the first VGA title in the series and I was BLOWN AWAY. It was a full 8MB, too. Other Sierra...

    From Bedrooms to Billions: The Playstation Revolution (Documentary)

    Anyone know about this documentary? It's 2 hours 45 minutes long, and covers the history of the Playstation, from inception and Sony's original plans to collaborate with Nintendo, then branching off to their own platform. Overall, I thought it was interesting. I could have done without the two...

    Featured Xbox Series S Confirmed - Coming November 10

    Wow, cool... I always wanted one of those JBL Bluetooth speaker things! Furthermore, I don't have an interest in buying a less powerful system. I still think I will go with PS5 because I have always been more intrigued by their exclusive titles versus Xbox. Still... I have no idea if I will get...

    What Movie(s) did you recently watch?

    My latest batch of films is: Mulan (2020) - This highly anticipated, remarkable Disney adventure is FINALLY able to be watched! Disney+ streaming service accidentally revealed that it will be $30 right now, but in December it'll be free for subscribers. Well anyway, I wasn't all that hyped for...

    Featured NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX 30 Series

    If you have 1080p I really think going above 3080 would be overkill and useless. Higher resolution settings with high refresh would benefit from the VRAM overhead. However, 1080p is kinda "small sauce" and the 3080 is massively overpowered for gaming at that level. But... you'll get the most...

    Featured NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX 30 Series

    I think you are the perfect candidate to upgrade to a 3080. The 10-series is still a "good" card, but the boost in performance from the 1070 to the 3080 will be dramatic, regardless of what you're gaming with display-wise. You have 1080p 144Hz with HDR, right? No matter what your display, the...

    Featured NVIDIA Announces GeForce RTX 30 Series

    Once I know I won't need to be spending lots of money, I would like to build a new PC. At that time, I'll probably get one.

    What TV Show/Documentary did you Recently Watch?

    Damn, I went over 10,000 characters. I'm an over-achiever! Here's part 2: The Vietnam War (2017) - Another Ken Burns documentary. I have a better than average background on the Vietnam War compared to most whiteys, so I wondered how much I would get out of this documentary. I got a LOT out of...

    What TV Show/Documentary did you Recently Watch?

    Rules here are the same as they are with the movies thread: If you post spoilers, warn beforehand. Other than that, say whatever you want. Let's, see, recently I watched: Tremors (2003) - This series aired on Sci-Fi channel back in the day. It has the only 100% pure attendance regular of the...

    PSO2 Windows Store Fix

    What is PSO2? I thought you were talking about some kind of error using the "Windows Store". Which I have never used.

    The Origins of Diablo: How it evolved during development

    This is a really cool Ars Technica video with lead programmer David Brevik, discussing his initial goals during the creation of Diablo. Eventually, it went from a turn-based concept over to RTS, much to his misgivings. For fans of Diablo, this is a fun watch: NOTE: At the 21:00 mark, he is...

    The Last of Us Part 2

    Are you dealing with mind-boggingly complex moral ambiguities? :D Good to know it's an exciting experience. I will keep plugging away at Horizon, and Mad Max.

    What Movie(s) did you recently watch?

    OK, I'll do another go-around. Why not? Recently, I watched: 1. Nick Fury: Agent of Shield (1998) - This is the be-all, end-all, kickstarter beginning of the MCU as we know it today. Strangely enough, Nick Fury is white... I wonder what happened before that caused him to look this way. It...

    Horizon: Zero Dawn

    Laptop update: Ok then, so I tried a few more things to hone in on symptoms and try to eliminate the culprit(s) of my gameplay display woes. I think this game is bugged when doing ANYTHING at 4k resolution. I played straight from the laptop display (144Hz 1080p), and there were no issues at...
