This.

 

It's definitely rough around the edges and I can imagine somebody trying to play it now instead of back when it was released would have a hard time, but to say it's a "dumpster fire" is kinda silly.

I thought Witcher 1 was great. Yes, it was rough around the edges in certain areas and combat was certainly much different (Witcher 2 and 3's  combat is much better, but still not spectacular) - but the story, the characters, the choices/decision-making, and all of that important RPG stuff was fantastic.

At this point if it isn't in the trailer I'm not gonna trust it besides June 10th is right around corner so. Otherwise it's not really worth debating about this game. Multiplayer is being quoted from a reporter for Kotaku... I don't know about you but I wouldn't put much merit on anything coming from Kotaku.
What can be assumed is game takes place ~25 years after bombs drop in the greater DC area so west Virginia as the song emplies fits that description.
I'm also thinking like others that Oct 27th might be the scheduled release date.

Who knows what else Bethesda has to offer they claim to have something for everyone this year so heck this game could be a royal game for all we know lol please don't be. :/

I'm not the biggest Kotaku fan either.

 

But, Jason Schreier (spelling?) of Kotaku has pretty much been right on the money about all of the dealings w/ closure and cancellation of Visceral with Star Wars: Ragtag; what happened with EA and BioWare Studios behind the scenes on ME: Andromeda; and why Destiny 2 lacked end-game content (i.e. like the original, in was rebooted while within its development cycle & b/c dev's don't really have the best tools for making Destiny 2 content).

 

If there's anyone seems to be worth reading at Kotaku and has pretty good sources, he's their guy.

Been messing around w/ my new gaming laptop: EVGA SC15. It arrived earlier today.

 

In short, the specs - i7 7700HQ at 2.8 Ghz, 16 GB RAM DDR4, 6 GB GTX 1060 (mobile), 15.6'' IPS screen at 1080p with G-Sync support, 256 GB SSD, 1 TB HDD 5400rpm, Thunderbolt 3, Windows 10 64-bit.

 

Throwing some games at it.

 

First up was Ghost Recon: Wildlands. 60fps at 1080p on High. Barely taking hits here, even with stuff happening on screen. Even the lowest I've seen is 57fps here so far. The game both looks and runs great. Impressive laptop. My previous laptop was on Low mostly at 900p at around 30fps w/ the Acer Nitro V15 (i7 Haswell, 16 GB RAM DDR3, 4GB 960M, W10 64-bit).

 

EDIT:

Holy crap! Prey 2017 at 1080p here is running at 120fps at Medium like it's nothing. Around 100-115fps at Very High with 1080p.

Best Buy already has a pre-order up for Fallout 76.  Considering that it is not known what the actual game is, I think it is unwise to buy a pre-order at this time.  Online Fallout, more of a Fallout Shelter, etc.  A full-on next Fallout game this soon?  It seems a little off to me.

I think I remember reading/hearing that Elder Scrolls 6 would be on a totally new graphics engine and as mentioned above, no expectation for release anytime soon.

Since Rage 2 mentioned, I have to wonder if Borderlands 3 is being pushed back as Rage 2 may have stolen some of their thunder.  

At the very least, I am interested in hearing what comes from camp Bethesda ie Fallout, Starfield and anything else.  If Starfield is coming anytime soon, I would be even more surprised if the new Fallout title is a next true Fallout game.

Rumor is this:

Fallout 76 is a multiplayer/online survival-RPG game set in Fallout universe akin to Rust and DayZ:

 

YongYea covered what it might be:

Is the Gamestop GTAV steam?

Oddly enough, GS lists it as Steam, even though it probably isn't - https://www.gamestop...t-auto-v/115461

 

Everybody on Reddit that bought it is saying it's the RSC Version - https://www.reddit.c...mestop_us_only/

 

I have never seen a GTA5 Steam-version sold outside of Steam and given what Reddit's saying, I'd guess the version on GS is probably the RSC Version.

 

I bought it years ago from D2D, so....yeah, that was a RSC Key.

in the year 2071 when devs decide to rockstar is bored and decides it will be a good year to remind people of the ancient west that existed in the now defunct united states territories they will release RDR on PC and Mysterd will have the last laugh

Okay, so has RDR for a PC port been mentioned "3 more times" by now...or what?

Sure, and RDR could get ported to PC, and I could fall in love and marry a Swedish supermodel this fall. 

 

aren't "coulds" great?

Still waiting for that RDR PC port...

EDIT:

Because $

Bots and offline mode should've been put in there already, in the first place.

 

With so many MP games out there already, they should've been prepared for player numbers to die down and dwindle in the first place. It's inevitable.

 

Plus, it could add a whole new fanbase: SP only players.

For most people, I don't think there's much incentive to push 1440p/4K. Namely, prices are high. Not everybody's going to invest in more expensive CPU's, GPU's, or whatever.

 

Sure, I have a 4K monitor - but I bought that b/c at that time b/c I really wanted a 1440p monitor at that time. Saw a Samsung 4K for similar prices on sale - just decided to go with that instead. Just gotta pump up AA to the moon, to stop any sort of blur or anything at 1440p. Two birds, one stone here, as I can run 1440p on everything pretty much - and I'm all set here for the inevitable 4K future.

 

Oh, BTW - that SC15 laptop from EVGA came back in on sale the other day at $1000 and I jumped on it. Good thing I did, b/c now it's back at $1900. Can't wait for this to, more or less, replace my current gaming laptop: Acer Nitro V15 Nitro (VN7-591G-79YZ).

 

EDIT:



why dont you do what mysterd does and use a low end video card to run at 4k so you can have more desktop space

970 is not low-end. It's one of the higher ends of the 9xx series.

What's above it (in that series)? Maybe the 970 Ti, 980, 980 Ti, and Pascal's Maxwell's Titan?

 

Aging might be a better word choice for it, as the 10xx series is out and that the 11xx series is right around the corner.

 

I run most stuff here at 1440p at Medium-to-High at 30fps to 60fps (depends per game - I often find somewhere I'm fine with in-between to lock it down via NVidia Inspector or MSI AB), which was my intent anyways. If I can run 4K with some games (such as older titles at that resolution and WWE 2K series & MK series) - cool, but it really just ain't expected here for me to do 4K on everything just yet.

 

4K everything seems to be in the 1080 Ti range.
