even if you account for inflation you're spending at least $30 for some rtx gimmick

2019-01-07 16:44:03 UTC  

a used 1080 would last you at least another generation of consoles

i guess nvidia saw that apple could just start charging a grand for a glorified toy and began to do the same

2019-01-07 16:47:20 UTC

2019-01-07 16:47:27 UTC

2019-01-07 16:55:45 UTC

2019-01-07 16:55:55 UTC  

shit optimizations tbh

the attitude that "just buy a more expensive gfc card" has spread throughout the industry

2019-01-07 16:56:38 UTC  

just buy a used 1080

2019-01-07 16:57:32 UTC  

>gimp your video card when we release new drivers to make you buy new cards novidya

2019-01-07 20:01:53 UTC  

fuckers downgraded the game

2019-01-07 20:02:04 UTC

>who cares about false advertisement and misrepresentation

After a few patches the PC release was phenomenal technologically. I ran it on ultra on a 970, never even maxed the card out, and the game looked fucking beautiful. That's all we're talking about rn, you're going off on a tangent

2019-01-07 20:10:04 UTC  

MGS V ran great also. Or how about even the GTA V release? Tweaked the settings down and oftentimes the game ran fine while still looking great as long as your graphics card wasn't made back in the days of fucking hand-soldering.

2019-01-07 20:10:50 UTC  

Yes, all of these games had other things going on that were dumb as hell, but that's not relevant.

2019-01-07 20:19:12 UTC  

gta v was shit

2019-01-07 20:19:32 UTC  

downgraded engine

2019-01-07 20:19:45 UTC  

mgsv was pretty great tho

2019-01-07 20:26:28 UTC  

I'm just listing things off the top of my head since I'm not home. You get the point though. There are plenty of games that have decent or even insanely good optimization on PC. They're just not that frequent between most games not being that graphically demanding as well as budget and time constraints. I do think there are plenty of games that suffer from criminal laziness on optimization, it's just not as pervasive as you make it out to be.

2019-01-07 21:10:56 UTC  

then you are lying and a shill or just ignorant

2019-01-07 21:10:58 UTC  

HTC announced a new vive pro

2019-01-07 21:11:03 UTC

2019-01-07 21:11:15 UTC  

and within the minute they're already shilling it for marketing

2019-01-07 21:11:38 UTC
