I really hope 4k becomes constantly over 60fps (pref 144) soon (like next year).

 

Playing Witcher 3 in 1440p at 80fps has spoiled me x.x  Need more pixels!!!

I'm quite happy + used to 60FPS max. 

 

I dunno, something just doesn't seem right when above that. Wasn't super fond of it w/ Quake 2 and Doom 2016 here. That could be b/c I don't have a monitor above 60Hz, as well.

 

But, yeah - 1440p is very nice. B/c I have a 4K screen here, if I'm running below 4K, I need to crank any form of AA way up. Otherwise, it can be blurry.

 

I should check out W3 and see how it runs on this PC, since I have my 970 and 4K screen. I'd be guessing, I'd probably be at either 1200p or 1440p at framerates + settings I'd be fine w/.

Negative...it's the best TN panel of it's kind and for the price (it was also $430 a couple days ago).  It looks like an IPS after calibrating.

 

Nothing runs 4k atm so buying 4k right now is a waste of money.  Also, no point in having a beastly computer with a crap monitor ;D

I have WWE 2K16, Sims 4 + MK XL at 4K for modern games w/ around 50-60FPS, but that's about it....

 

Most games, 1440p over here at Medium or above with 30FPS+.

I doubt it is a big step up from a 770. 770 is kinda old @ 3 generations back but it was a high end card in its day. 

770 vs. 1050 Ti:

Doesn't look like much difference performance-wise, TBH.

 

The biggest difference could be VRAM numbers here, depending on what version of 770 was purchase.

 

@Nothing

Did you get the 2GB 770 or 4GB 770?

If one got the 4GB 770 - eh, 1050 Ti also has 4GB of VRAM.

I just got a PNY XLR8 1070 and want something to buy, but I bought most the good recent stuff on sales around the holidays for console's(just recently got sick of working around my poorly designed MSI , didn't find this article until until the warranty was up http://www.tomshardw...tion,18013.html , it would sometimes take 20 boot attemps to initialize, last few months specifically). I haven't bought any PC games in a while, has steam toned down their sales in the last few years?

Literally nothing on my wishlist is on sale. I have never seen that before.

Steam Sales ain't like they used to be. They've become the WalMart of digital distribution, to the point they really don't have to compete w/ other services to make $$$ and sales.

 

If you want great sales, check other 3rd party sites. 

Also, keep checking Bundle Sites like HumbleBundle, BundleStars, IndieGala, and others for deals on bundles.

GreenManGaming, Nuuvem, GamesPlanet, and others are also worth a look, as well.

 

PC Game deals in general seem to be not as good and/or as deeply discounted as they frequently used to be, as well.

 

Amazon's Digital Video Games section (for PC Game Downloads+Steam keys) just ain't what it used to be, either - especially since AmazonTony left. Meh.

 

Keep checking ITAD for best sale prices currently + historically:

https://isthereanydeal.com/

 

XCOM 2 is on sale in the Humble Bundle Monthly as the lead game for $12 (before any coupons/vouchers). We don't know the other titles in this bundle yet, though.

 

Also, what kind of games are you interested in? What kind of games do you like?

Well, even the base game doesn't support controllers? Expect Steam Controller mapped as KB/Mouse.

I dunno who'd really want to use a controller w/ XCOM series of games anyways. [shrug]

 

State of Derpcay, not sure - had it for some time, but still ain't played it.

Ain't touched YOSE Edition yet, either.

dragonfall has Steam Workshop support.  GoG version is .. not recommended unless u got someone dumb enough or just want to get the GoG version for collection purpose

Why does it have to be "or"?

Why can't it be both reasons altogether?

are GOG keys worth anything? I got a key for Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's cut thats collecting dust. would like to give it away around x-mas time or at least trade it for something else (i already own it on steam & gog).

Depends on who you talk to. 

 

I think most here on CAG especially in this thread prefer Steam. As a service, it's Light Years better than every other service (GOG, UPlay, Origin, etc) on PC.

 

Though, personally - I also really love the "No DRM" attitude that comes w/ GoG.

 

I already have Dragonfall DC on Steam + DRM-Free download from HB, BTW.

So Ubisoft sent out a survey, and they start asking about how I feel about certain publishers.

 

First question;

Pretty good new Hump Day bundle. 3 from my wishlist (Alchemist, NAL is Alive and City Quest). Easy HH though Tryfing Cycle Vanilla seems like a bust (developer is a little not great financially) though you can maybe get a key for Tryfing Cycle as explained on the post on Steam forum and only for today. Frankly the game doesn't look amazing, so I wont be bothering. It's not worth the extra $2 or so to get the key. I'm sure it will be in EA hell for a while.

Wait, when the heck did Xenus 2: White Gold get onto Steam?

 

Would be nice to see Boiling Point: Road To Hell (AKA Xenus 1) + The Precursors also hit Steam. 

 

EDIT:

Looks like The Precursors got Greenlit onto Steam:

Now all we need is Xenus 1 AKA Boiling Point: Road To Hell to get onto Steam!

I want the Homeworld Remastered Collection but I cannot justify it when the BTA is <$3.

I still have all my untouched Homeworld 1+2 retail-box copies.

 

Would be great to put the HW remasters + originals on Steam, but not at $10 + not with the BTA only right now sitting at around $3.63.

After 47 hours with it, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is finished.

 

As great as the game itself is and is the major reason to recommend it, the story + character development seems to be going great and building into something awesome - until the game finishes up abruptly & lands into "anti-climatic" territory, suddenly rolls credits, shows a few clips to set something up, and feels like a major set-up for either DLC's and/or a sequel.

 

EDIT:
