Deus Ex franchise is rumored to be going on "hiatus", due to sales not being what they (Square) were expecting (i.e. they weren't high enough, to suit them):
Maybe if Square didn't kick the game out the door to the point that Eidos Montreal were in such a poor position w/ unfinished storylines + threads dangling + cliffhangers galore & they (Square) didn't have them (Eidos) tackle on bullcrap like Breach, we wouldn't be in this damn situation.
Ugh. This sucks.
Would be nice if this all these dangling threads got wrapped-up in some DLC's...or something.

Resident Evil 7 and Black Ops 3. You don't have to run everything at super ultra max to have a pc game look good
I can understand wanting 60fps at say very fast-paced action-esque games (i.e. especially in fast-paced shooters like Doom 2016 and ARPG's like Diablo) - but eh, I'm fine in most instances if it's above 30fps; & the fps sticks at a stable framerate consistently + doesn't have framerates jumping up, down, around, and all over the place.

Anyway, $155 4GB 480 at Newegg After Rebate. Really great price for a current gen card. I know a lot of people say "get the 8GB" but how many games even use more then 4GB of VRAM? I mean the shitty optimization of that one batman game shouldn't be used as the standard. For 1080P this should be fine, no?
Depends on resolution + settings.
Those that can go over 4GB of VRAM:
Doom 2016 = wants 5GB of VRAM at least on Nightmare graphics settings:
Dishonored 2 = Some people have gone into the 7.5 GB VRAM arena at Ultra settings:
Shadow of Mordor = Can go b/t 5-6GB of VRAM:
Dying Light = at 1080p can go over 5.3 GB VRAM if you want to max it out:
Batman: Arkham Knight can go anywhere from 4-7.5GB, depending on res' and what NVidia Gameworks stuff you turn on at 1440p (and up):
Rise of the TR hitting at + sometimes over 8GB (WTH?) at 1080p maxed-out:
Batman AK isn't the only crappy optimized newer game out here on PC. Dishonored 2 + Dying Light, especially if you crank things way up there, can run like total freakin' garbage.
Seriously, a lot of the NVidia GameWorks stuff and special AMD stuff IMHO, just ain't necessary. So, if you're really going to a 4GB card b/c of price + saving some $, just don't use that stuff. [shrug]
BTW, how does RoTTR run w/ SSAA instead of SMAA?

PreyoShock looks pretty damn good, I must say.
It's really hard to go wrong w/ anything Arkane puts out, TBH. They normally don't disappoint, in gameplay department + world-building department.
I still wish Human Head got their open-world Prey 2 version released, though. I thought it looked great, at E3 back in the day when it was being previewed.
Tonight we play Vermintide and try to channel our flailing energies towards killing rats.
Oh, that game is a blast!
It certainly filled my "Where the hell is Left 4 Dead 3?" itch in the gameplay department, even though Vermintide basically swapped-out Warhammer universe + Skaven-rats for Valve's universe + zombies; and also added the twist of getting new loot after each run which feels very ARPG-like.
