Gotta give them dues for still supporting it though, even if it has been a DLC fest up to now. VR heists could be cool.

What in the world does "deliberately" mean

SkankwOn Avatar

Yeah, I'm curious on that too. I agree that ME:A was a disappointing sequel, but why would a developer "deliberately" choose to mess up any AAA game?

What if I don't like the game on offer and want to give it to a friend? NVIDIA are consistently coming up with new ways to annoy customers.Reply

Since Nvidia can't add the game to your library automatically (at least not on Steam, don't know if they made something with Ubisoft), I would assume that you'd get your key after verifying that you own the hardware it comes with. After that you should be able to give the key to a friend.


But I don't know, I'm just guessing.

Nvidia Shield review: ringing the death knell for the little living room PCNvidia Shield review: ringing the death knell for the little living room PC

The Steam Link was recently on sale for £15, I bought mine last year and streaming over Powerline LAN at 60fps/1080p is solid. To me, this NVIDIA tablet is overpriced & overkill tbh.Reply
Dave James Avatar

I've always had serious input lag issues with the Steam Link, even over a gigabit Powerline setup. Playing games which require split-second timing, such as driving or sports games, I found impossible.


This is the first streaming device where I can game with no compromise whether I'm streaming from or playing directly on my home rig.


But if you're playing slow-paced games the Steam Link's low-grade hardware is okay. I did enjoy messing around with the Raspberry Pi as a Steam streamer for a while too ;)

AMD Vega feature details leak ahead of Thursday's CES architecture previewAMD Vega feature details leak ahead of Thursday's CES architecture preview

.. and now what's this I hear about Freesync 2/HDR. :)Reply
Dave James Avatar

Yeah, there are rumblings we might hear something about that either later this afternoon or alongside the Vega preview on Thursday.


Still unsure about what this new kind of HDR will bring to gaming, mind. I'm preparing for the sort of overblown implementations we had to put up with when devs first got their hands on HDR and bloom...

AMD RX Vega - gaming cards will be faster than the pro-level Frontier EditionAMD RX Vega - gaming cards will be faster than the pro-level Frontier Edition
SkankwOn Avatar
I've pretty much tied myself to Radeon GPUs after buying a Freesync monitor, so I've been awaiting Vega with hope and interest.

Could even be time to upgrade CPU/Mobo/RAM, as I'm guessing my trusty old i5 2500K (at 4Ghz) will likely bottleneck the GPU.

Ryzen perhaps. We'll see on both fronts.Reply
Dave James Avatar

Genuinely really excited about what AMD could be like in 2017. A serious Vega-based RX Fury and 16-thread Ryzen CPU could make for a stunning rig - and will make your Freesync monitor shine :)
