they have Fallout New Vegas on this week.



 


 I don't think the epic version can be modded. if you plan to mod it. you might want to wait for a sale elseware.

Wait.  How is this guy playing this on a 4060 Ti?  He's known to be the budget gamer type.  And, that card just got released yesterday.

 Is supposed to be a budget card, or maybe he got a card to "review" at that time.

It's "supposed" to be a budget gaming card.  But this one has so many problems.

#1:  It has very little, if no generational uplift in raw rasterization over its predecessor.  The 3060 Ti.
#2:  The price is putting the card into a higher tier level.
#3:  It is PCIe 4.0 but only has 8 lanes and lower memory bandwidth compared to last gen.

In all due respect, Nvidea has been screwing themselves over hard with this generation.  Sure, the 4090 was a huge hit with anyone who wants the best of the best and doesn't care what it costs.  But everything they have put out after that has just been one disappointment after another.  The price vs performance just isn't there.

Good to know!

@Dave: Any games looking good to you currently on Epic Games freebies?

What kind of games do you currently gravitate to? Shooters? Story based? RPG? Top down dungeon crawlers?

I don't change the small handful of games I play very often.  Unless something new really peaks my interest.  I'm still waiting for Dead Island 2.

It looks like I will be waiting for the exclusivity period to end and it comes to steam.  I don't have, nor am I getting an epic games account.

 Hopefully after a year or so most bugs should be worked out so the waiting game might pay off anyway. If I buy it, it would likely be though Steam also.

It does look entertaining for Halloween.  But is it just me or does it look more like a new take on resident evil?
