"The Callisto Protocol is disastrously poor [on PC] at launch" Digital Foundry @ @22:45
Midnight Sons being poor technically is both sad, but expected with how Firaxis releases their games.  I want it now, but will wait for a sale and some patches.  Seems like my kind of game, too.

That won't solve Shader Compilation stutter problems.


Every time a game has a new special shader effect on PC, it's gonna stutter. This stuff needs to be cached ahead of time, basically...and since dev's don't know exactly what you're running for a GPU - unlike say a PS5 or XSX, which have a fixed-box and dev's know what GPU that system's always running b/c they're all the same - you'll always be hit w/ this problem on PC; the game figures that crap out as it goes along on PC. 


Games really should pre-cache this stuff ahead of time - but nope, they often don't....b/c it'll likely take a while to do so on the pre-caching. 


This has been a problem on PC on some other UE4 games, such as Deathloop and Ghostwire.

The amazon basics "lift engine" (rebranded ergotron) dual monitor desk mount is on sale for $55 over at amazon --50% off.


The difference between an ergotron and the myriad of cheaper stands that I now have stored in my basement is significant.

The best gift you give yourself this holiday season is a bidet add-on as there is no simpler pleasure than having the ability to scrape the barnacles off the hull, leaving you feeling fresh and clean.


Guaranteed to be less poopy than Callisto Protocol!
