    Nice trick with Mirage might already been known to many.


    I didn't consider using it on Watson fences. 




    Holy crap. I did not know this. Wonder if it works on Caustic traps as well?

    Also, those moments where you're choking Ellie as Abby or stabbing/drowning Abby as Ellie were harrowing. You really don't want to do it but the game makes you do it anyway. f**king brilliant!


    Mechanically the final fight of Abby and Ellie was such an awful bit of gameplay.


    But thematically it is absolutely f**king brilliant. The constant motif of the game was Revenge is a vicious unending cycle. And the final scene fits in very nicely with that theme. The story started with a person out for revenge murdering a parent infront of a child for that revenge. It ends with a person out for revenge about to murder a parent infront of their child for that revenge. I think Ellie realizes that just at the cliffs edge and breaks that cycle. But it costs her everything to understand that.  


    Abby on the other hand understood it much earlier from her experience. Which is why she lets Ellie live midway through. 


    Like I said previously. Some really good f**king writing in this one.

    Is that true? IIRC remember Witcher 3 wasn't very well optimized on launch? 


    I dont remember that, it ran pretty decently on my very average rig. 


    It might have been the same issue as Crysis where people put stuff on Ultra on rigs that couldnt handle Ultra and thought it was badly optimized. 


    Looking at the gameplay, it really doesnt look that jawdropping so I would expect if you can run most current gen games, it should run fine.

    I'm pretty underwhelmed by Better Call Saul. About halfway through season 3 and I'm only really enjoying the Mike part of the series. Otherwise feels like a drag. People have said it's equivalent it BrBa and I'm just not seeing it. Jimmy's constant self-sabotage is just annoying. I don't like him at all. 


    Honestly it doesnt really get much "better". Rest of the series is pretty much at the same pacing and same style as what you have seen so far. 


    I loved it but it is not for everyone. Nothing like BrBa which moved at breakneck speed. 

  5. ^^PC. 


    It gets so sweaty on Platinum. I actually like try hard games but this borders on frustrating. 


    Ah well, rank resets in 3-4 days anyway (I think).

    Warner Bros. delays Tenet to August 12th as COVID-19 cases spike in the United States.


    They are going to keep pushing every 2 weeks... 


    Just put it on digital man. At some point they will have to accept the reality that theater revenue is gonna be sh*t till we have a vaccine. 


    Even if theaters open, even if they allow full capacity, most people still wont want to be in a crowded room like that.


    Sure there are morons that will but there arent enough morons out there to make enough money on these films.

    I know reading is hard but still read it again, but slowly this time (before Bunty and Bubli jump in with rofl emojis), and imagine if it was posted to show Sony's point of view when it comes to subscription services.



    Free is always good, but expecting everything to be free just because one publisher gives away their shitty stuff for free is really stupid.


    Stuff like this would be less sad if Sony were paying you all to say this. It would still be pathetic but less pathetic. Like I wouldnt even defend my employer this much and I like the company I work for AND I get paid for it.


    This is literally being happy about paying 4000 instead of 50 just to ..... what? "Own the Xbots by quoting sales figures"? On a forum? :lol:

  8. This has got to be the only industry where people put the finances of a giant multi billion dollar corporation over their own finances. You could have played this for free but imagine being happy that you had to pay 4k for it so a company could have a nice press release. :doh:

  9. I am sure the game is gonna be great but I really didnt vibe with the tone of the trailer. It felt a little too Saints Row to me. I dont think thats what the game will be like so it is a weird theme to pick for the trailer.

    JFC how is their branding such a goddamn mess dude. Its like the windows division took over consoles.


    Just the naming was bad enough as it was and now there is this stuff. I follow games stuff as closely as anyone else and even I am finding this confusing.


    Like WTF does - "Games "natively designed" or "fully rebuilt their game" for Series X" even mean? Backwards compatibility maybe?

    Bought it from the local market. Got it for 17.5k. It doesn't mention refresh rate anyway but model is CF591.

    Thank you all for the first help


    Unless you play a LOT of MP games (and have fairly decent specs) refresh rate is not as important as image quality. 


    I have two monitors. One is an IPS with 60 hz and the other is a VA at 144hz. Anytime I am not playing MP games, I switch to the IPS.

    Took me a while to realize that clickers in this game actually use echolocation and sonar bursts to find you even if you're sitting completely still.


    Took me literally half the game and about a dozen safes to realize I could open them by just listening to the "click" sound and didnt really need the codes. Maybe we are the clickers lol.
