    DRM has ruined Resident Evil Village on PC

    I played through the game twice and only noticed any visual issues a handful of times. Usually related to the sisters in the castle, which occurs pretty early in the game. I'm not saying there aren't issues for some folks, but it's not like the game is "cripplingly unplayable" for everyone...

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    It should...having that setup myself and using a cut-rate HDMI 2.1 cable I bought for cheap on Amazon. When you look in the Nvidia control panel area to select your resolution, are you scrolling down to the lower area where it has "PC" resolutions? That's where I'm able to access it. I'm even...

    have you gotten your new NVidia/AMD upgrade card yet? Why not?

    Sold my 2080Ti last summer and got lucky enough to buy a 3090 from EVGA on launch morning. With COVID making vacations almost impossible last year, I had plenty of extra money for unnecessary expenses. Other than having the 3090 die and go through a (luckily quick) RMA process, I've been happy...

    Assassin's Creed Valhalla

    Just curious - what armor and weapon sets are/were people using? I've been tinkering around and honestly think the stuff you get at the beginning (the Ravenclan set, Varrin's Axe, Raider Axe) is among the best in the whole game. The Mentor set is a bit better for aggressive approaches and I...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    Basically any time I enable Dolby Atmos for Home Theater, the audio will play normally (in 7.1), but the AVR says "PCM 7.1" instead of Dolby Atmos. The little red bitstream flag doesn't light up, either. It doesn't matter whether the game is Atmos enabled or not - it just always plays normal 'ol...

    Dead Space remake

    Calisto definitely looks cool/edgy, although the trailers are unclear what type of game it'll actually be.

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    Honestly, I'm okay with that. I'm more concerned with the little quirks (like Atmos) and occasional signal dropouts. The color spec is something I probably wouldn't notice. I've managed to get everything else to work the way I want, but Atmos still only kicks-in for video content.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Finally on the tail end of Assassin's Creed Valhalla. After being moderately challenging early (when everything is like 50x your level), the last 20 hours have been a sleepwalk. I'm 80 hours in and I feel like anything else (I still have several areas left) is going to be tedious. Prime example...

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    At my job we use Teams 95% of the day. Even my company's owners were talking about Windows 11 having deep Teams integration. That's actually one of the things I'm very interested in as a result. Yet if my company was using Hangouts and such, I'd be way less excited. Hopefully they'll provide...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    The ports list 3 options by default (4K Standard, 4K Enhanced, and 8K Standard...no further details), and apparently it's a known issue for device settings to have issues when you toggle from one to the next. 8K Standard is the only one that'll do 4K/120/HDR. Holding the device button and...

    Win 11 pro's? con's? opinions?

    Another Win 11 release just hit: https://www.neowin.net/news/windows-11-build-22000100-is-now-out-with-taskbar-improvements-and-teams-chat/ I don't see any mention of that stupid ass "recommended" section yet again, but it fixed several other issues I had previously. I really, really, hope that...

    Dead Space remake

    I'll definitely grab this. I enjoyed the hell out of that series. It was a little like Resident Evil crossed with Event Horizon. I tried to play the older games a few years ago and the graphics didn't age well at all. They shouldn't need to go as far as what the RE2 and RE3 remakes had, but I'd...

    Amazon’s New World game is bricking GeForce RTX 3090 graphics cards

    My first EVGA 3090 died a few months ago and a quick search through their forums shows the same issue happening for a lot of people...usually attributed to Halo 2 of all things. Mine went kaput playing GTA5. There are some people on RMA #3 or #4. I've been fortunate that my replacement has been...

    HDMI 2.1 AVR Recommendations (2021)

    As I'm getting deeper into things, I'm finding Gsync to be a huge game changer. At least now that I've figured out how to actually use it. I've never experienced smooth FPS like that before, and on games that would have FPS all over the place under normal circumstances. Exiting a game that uses...

    Back 4 Blood from Turtle Rock Studios

    I just hope the GamepPass version of this isn't compromised in some way. Everything about this game checks the right boxes, I liked the beta test, and the trailer shows that they actually give a damn about the PC version.
