  1. RTX 2000 series GPUs

    Professional cards like the Quadro have been out for a while and usually far outstrip the gaming models. I think the new SLI tech that the 2080 uses actually came from their pro line
  2. RTX 2000 series GPUs

    My 1080 does 1440/144 perfectly fine i think 1080Tis can do 4k at 60
  3. RTX 2000 series GPUs

    The lack of games that support ray tracing right now is sort of hilarious to me, not sure why NVIDIA didn't wait since they are already so far ahead of the competition. I am interested what the frame rate and resolution numbers are going to be with ray tracing on. I get the feeling that they will be pretty low by today's high end graphics standards, but maybe NVIDIA will surprise me. I got a 1080 a few months ago so I'm not really looking to upgrade anyway, if ray tracing gets widespread adoption and seems worth it perhaps I will get the next generation of cards the 2010s or 3000s depending on how the new naming convention goes.
  4. Cyberpunk 2077

    Interesting article about the politics & assumptions in 2020 and on display in the demo for 2077 http://www.kotaku.co.uk/2018/09/13/cyberpunk-2077-doesnt-have-to-be-progressive-but-its-when-the-genre-is-most-exciting
  5. Cyberpunk 2077

    You don't make choices in a lot of those games though, you are in a level with a bunch of enemies you need to kill or get past, there is no alternate way to do it. I am specifically annoyed by things like Nico from GTA4 lamenting his life of crime in cut scenes and then allowing you to murder a whole city in game play. The discussion of the scavengers in the Cyberpunk 2077 trailer reminded me of those kinds of moments. Hitman Blood Money and Mercenaries Playground of Destruction actually had decent systems for dealing with this, killing civilians cost you money, its a good way to encourage players to not be complete psychopaths. Despite my issues with Dues Ex it also did a good job of not having a visible morality slider but adjusting NPC reactions to you based on how many people you killed.

  7. Cyberpunk 2077

    I dislike morality systems, especially ones that are explicitly laid out in sliders, But in games like GTA I get grossed out by the total ignoring of horrific player actions. I just get the feeling this game will let me murder everyone all the time and no one in the game will bat an eye. That dissonance was already on display a bit when the main character and her partner were talking about how fucked up the scavengers were without really thinking about how many people they had killed that day alone.
  8. Cyberpunk 2077

    Gameplay Demo: My thoughts: Gameplay, at least in the demo looks like what the new Deus Ex games should have been. Although the lack of any sort of morality system probably means the game can get super fucked up. The damage numbers remind me a lot of Borderlands. Hope you can toggle them off. The swearing and nudity fell like some #EDGY #GRITTY #CONTENT like GoT or WestWorld. A bit disappointing but not surprising considering the Witcher 1 sex cards. The narrator was super weird and a bit of a creep. Overall I am excited, but a bit wary as I didn't enjoy Witcher 3 very much and have been burned by my enthusiasm for cyberpunk games before.
  9. any sort of syrup, including a thicker simple syrup, or honey mixed with a bit of water should work.
  10. Recently completed video games

    Dragon Age Inquisition I was worried going into it, DA2 and ME3 had really soured me on Bioware games but I had a great time, its pretty astounding how much writing goes into games like DAI and how much of it is decent. Dragon Age Origins is still my favorite game to play as a spell caster but DAI is a close second. More RPGs need an agro system that allows your companions to tank while you dish out damage as a caster. Also having spells level with your stats instead of having fireball 1,2,3,4 etc. is so much better. Only thing I really missed from DAO was spell combos. Overall I enjoyed the game a lot, not sure that the DLC would be worth it at full price, but I got the whole package on deep discount.
  11. Star Wars Episode 8

    They are far too busy rushing to the next CGI heavy action scene to really give the characters much development. There are also so many characters that all need screen time so the film is spread thin between them
  12. Star Wars Episode 8

    Last Jedi is on US netflix ATM so I decided to finally watch it:
  13. I totally agree, the villain is pretty good and him not being switched out was a welcome change. Just finished the season today, its possibly a better season than 1 because it lacks the villain switch and the ending was really interesting. Excited for Season 3. Overall its either the 2nd or 3rd best season of a Marvel Netflix show. Cant quite decide how to rank the two Luke Cage seasons, #1 is still JJ S1.
  14. What's the Name of the Game!?

    81: looks a bit like Jazz Punk 82: Master of Orion 1?
  15. Looking for TBS recommendations

    Have you checked out Xenonauts? Its a good compromise between the Original Xcom and the new ones.
