what do we care if the consoles get a dumbed down version? Valve would never compromise the PC version even if they would make it multiplat.

You say that. But people said the same thing about Crytek with Crysis 2 and 3 and look how that turned out.

you are comparing Valve, the lord of Steam, to Crytek here...

I'd say Valve isn't holy grail of PC devs anymore. For fucks sake they've had their biggest following waiting 11 years for a sequel without even a proper announcement....Half Life is arguably the biggest pc series ever what with all its spawned. Second to WoW I'd say.

i believe they have made the decision long ago to not make/release a new Half Life title until they can roll out a new engine with it.

Honestly, at 1440, I really don't see any jaggies. 27". At 1080? Yeah...They are there.

4k...absolutely not.

1440 @ 27" is the same pixel density than 1080p @ 21". atleast with my 22" fullhd i can see jaggies without AA.

yes, AA impacts performance quite a bit. then again, 1440p or 4K impacts performance even more than AA on 1080p. so... choice is yours. i pesonally use smaller 22" screen, so i don't need more than 1080p. this is also good since i don't need to make SLI setups for max graphics settings.

if you want bigger screen, then you must go for atleast 1440p. be prepared to go SLI/Crossfire.

and the idiots will still buy them anyways

This is why nvidia made the Titan

it's like saying it's stupid to buy a BMW when you can get to the Walmart with a cheaper Prius too.

some people can afford a little bit of luxury.

i'm down with having standard edition and a season pass edition. anything past that is bullshit. the season pass edition then TRULY must include everything they release after the initial release.

then again, i was never interested in Evolve anyway. i love online shooters, but that 4vs1 just doesn't interest me. it should've been 4vs4 with less powerful monsters imo. it does look innovative though, but i'm gonna have to pass this one.

I think i'll finally upgrade from Win7. Especially for DX12.

BUT... i have so much audio editing software that i'm afraid some of it could be incompatible, or not working properly with it. so i don't know if i'll upgrade day 1.
