if you really want a true upgrade go for the 1050ti, or the 1060. the x50ti has more memory (4gb) but narrower bandwidth and lower clock speed, and is not VR capable, compared to the x60 which has less memory (3gb), but better memory utilization and clock speed along with being VR capable

It's a good card to buy for a new build, but if you've got a 750ti or a 950 there's probably not much improvement. And the 1050ti is fairly close to the 1060 3GB version pricewise too.

Why 'No Man's Sky' was the biggest gaming mistake of 2016

I still have never played this game; but since it actually came out, I've heard nothing but hate for it. Hatey hate-hate. Now I expected some; in every realm of the entertainment industry there's always a certain amount of post-release revolt against pre-release hype - the amount of pushback being related to the amount of hype there was. But, the gale of hate for NMS has been far beyond the level that this formula normally predicts.

This article is another example - but a lot of its statements are "just so" - "the game is not good", "the studio told a million lies", etc, while no elaboration is really given, just a lot of suggestion that really seems to presume the reader has played the game and come to the same conclusion.

So, people who have played this game...is the situation really so mediocre? What exactly did the studio lie about? What's missing from the game that was supposed to be there, and does its absence from the game really make it a bad or not-good game?

Mafia 3 happenings.



I came out a building and watched as that truck started jittering like crazy, until it just flew way up into the air and landed on that roof.



No idea what was going on with that boat though.

CNN was talking about Russian hacking and used a Fallout hacking screen as their unspoken example. Woohoo! Now I know I'm a hacker. I've done it many times in Fallout New Vegas (haven't gotten 4 yet sadly).

CNN uses screenshot from ‘Fallout 4’ to show how Russians hack things

Nice but I tried using the 1060 for 4K gaming and it just doesn't quite cut it but with a water cooled system and overclocking might just do it. Providing that you have a 4K monitor or TV.

Rumor has it that the Switch will cost $250. There is a news conference about it on Thursday.

This will happen after it to show off hours of gameplay.

i'm using the one hdmi and dvi...nothing in my houses uses display port yet. New monitor and tv i'll get sometimes down the line.

i've heard people using

previously i had i7-960(5-6 years new record for me) and gtx 760(going on 2+)....i'm sure by the time i go full on 4k prices will be good enough i go though graphics cards every two years and then computers after 3-5 years. for the record, so far i seem to ruin store bought computers faster then ones i build myself

In case there's still someone out there who doesn't have Mass Effect 2, it's free on Origin right now. Not sure how long it lasts.

I didn't, actually. Played the entire series on X360. Nowadays only got a PC though. Thanks.

comes with Cerberus network free DLCs, but a few have to be purchased from Bioware directly... they do NOT go on sale.... Kasumi, Lair of the Shadow Broker, and Overlord are the ones with mission content, the rest are skipable weapons and skin

I can download all 3 on my Xbox One through Backwards Compatibility. I never played Mass Effect 3 on my Xbox 360 though but bought it cheap and played a few missions.

yeah, that will never cease to piss me off. They don't even make GOTY versions of anything. It's really weird how EA tolerates that (considering how eager they are to make eight billion DLC for every game)
And I assume you can still only buy an amount of Bioware coins that will inevitably leave you with some spare coins that you can't use for anything, after you've bought the DLC.

I just won a free copy of Battlefield 1 for the PS4! A few months ago, I entered some contest I saw on a box of Hot Pockets. We were interested in the game, so thought, why not? Forgot all about it until today when I got the email.

So, Overwatch does this pre match banter thing between the characters.

I was playing Sombra and there was a Tracer (they are similar characters all around, speedy flankers).

Sombra says something along the lines of "The translocator can be kind of scary sometimes, you know what I'm talking about Tracer."

to which Tracer replies...

"Maybe next time you should disappear forever."

I mean holy crap what a bitch...

So I just found out that RPG Maker MV is a thing.

Now I want to do a Dungeons & Dragons parody game in it.

God help me.
