Wow alex is giving up on 8GB gpu? try holding onto a 3Gb for as long as you can
I want a 3rd person HALO I’m the Gears of War engine and I want a FPS Gears of War.
I have the PS5 beta and can confirm that my Gigabyte M32Q 1440p monitor with HDMI 2.0 can run 1440p mode but VRR is not working.
HELL YEAH JOHN UNLEASHED HELL YEAH
I just came back to this to say I thought John did a really great job hosting this. All round just really good, you'd think he did it all the time. 👍👍
i bought a Series X for couch co-op on Infinite just for that to be canned... :saderu:
I thought Sony discredited the false claims in the fabricated article about poor psvr2 sales and said it was bullshit. Are we just going to ignore that and pretend it didn't happen?
Lgc1 has 1440p, I'm using it right now, not a customer resolution or anything it has a regular 1440p mode.. a good one too it's a good iterative, going a bit above and a bit beyond and you'll end up in the 4K container but it has a its own dedicated 1440p container which is very useful and very nice so.. you can do it Alex it can be done, I don't know why it wouldn't show up necessarily, but it's built into the TV's whatever the firmware or whatever.. 1440p 120
I know that I am not allowed to say this to gamers but I really liked Halo Infinite and between the single player and multiplayer there was more content then your average game.
What is about Hogwarts Legacy tech review?
I always look forward to your games analysis. Hogwarts Legacy is the hottest game. It doesn't have to be John to do the analysis. It can be anyone else in DF.
Эй Вы, мазафакеры
Где Hogwarts Legacy?
WNRIwyHg4Ak&t=01h05m11s 01:05:11 In the UK at least there are quite a few 4090s at under £1700. Got mine recently for £1679, then u have the dumb ROG and "OC" models at those inflated 2000+, but why anyone would buy those is beyond me.
Sam's a reptilian!
John - No idea what happened for your other posts but I love hearing your opinion on here and the DF weekly! Ignore people who can’t handle an opinion different to them, but don’t stop being honest with your views 👍🏻
If you guys don't review Hogwarts Legacy you'll be clowns.
UE5 is fab. Just don't want all games to use it. (All will appear samey)
