I used to own GTX 1070 Gigabyte for 2 years and I will say their brand is so damn good, those 3 fans kept my GPU under 70 degrees during heavy loads and Gigabyte GPU's are really great, you should have no problem going with RTX 2080 Gigabyte so you're good to go :)

Tough I decided to go with MSI 2070 myself this time around and pair it with my Ryzen 7 2700X.

Good to hear. I'm using an Asus 1070 atm, and it's worked flawlessly with no issues. I was looking at the 2070, but I kinda wanna stretch a little and use this 2080 for a couple years.

MSI quality really increased from back in the day.

Are we unable to quote and reply to posts now? It's not showing up on my phone and everything looks different.

Has there been a redesign or did I accidentally make settings changes while grabbing my phone from my pocket?

Anybody had issues playing 4K with HDR enabled and getting a purple screen? I think i've resolved it, but not too sure... Playing Sekiro at 4K locked 60, which is nice.

@XVision84: I'm still working out the HDR lol. It screwed me up with the new card, as games were launching wonky. I think it was a TV setting, but it's all so alien from migrating from a 4 year old 1080p TV lol.

Buying the Dark Souls trilogy is the opposite of being a modern gamer problem. Apart from some wonky mechanics, they're all excellent. Plus, their success brought us Sekiro, and i've never wanted to strangle something more...

@lundy86_4: Is Sekiro anything like Nioh? (Nioh 2) I hardly pay attention what Sekiro is all about but I'm no means of a Soul gamer despite I played the trilogy.

@davillain-: Nah. Even though they share a very similar setting, they play wildly different. Nioh plays more like the Souls games, whilst doing it's own thing as well (stances.) Sekiro is much faster paced in both traversal of the environment, as well as combat. It's stupidly difficult as well though.

More like with the accusations against certain VA's flying around and how fans are basically turning on one another for it (though KamehaCon is involved), even involving death threats. I have my own thoughts on the matter, but it's probably not the thread for it AND I'm worried it might be taken the wrong way no matter what is said.

But I will say this. I have never seen a fandom act as bad before, and something FAR more serious too. More than the Star Wars and Marvel fandoms now (and the former being no easy feat).

Is that so, interesting. I'll wait for a sale picking up Sekiro later date. I was more excited for Ghost of Tsushima over Sekiro so I guess it's why I overlooked it.

That movie is gonna be real awkward when Dora looks at the camera and waits for audience to answer lol.

This looks like a parody Tomb Raider film and if that was the case, I would've like that if it was. Though I am one of those who wonder who the heck this is supposed to be for. The preschoolers can't be interested in the high-school setting, and older kids can't be much interested in Dora. Unless of course, this is a case of the character growing up with the original fans. And even then they have to outgrown her by now. I gotta say, the girl they got for her is attractive. (not going that route you guys) Plus, having a teenager played by a teenager is a rare treat :)

From what i've seen, it's a whole lot of accusations against Vic, with no evidence to back it up. I'm fed up of these stupid witch hunts based on nothing more than people's words.

Apparently, it's been going on longer than this. But in a post-Harvey Weinstein/Kevin Spacey world (both men Seth MacFarlane made some... eerie "jokes" about years prior respectively at the Oscars and an episode of Family Guy, and Tina Fey in an episode of 30 Rock, where Jenna apparently had confrontations with Harvey), it was bound to get some more traction now.

@FireEmblem_Man: Check out the thread. They announced Iron Man VR (looked shite,) along with FNAF VR, NMS VR, showed more of that graffiti game from E3... Then just went into Days Gone, which is looking interesting, but the footage definitely didn't portray that. The fire effects both in general, and on enemies, was laughable. Almost 2D.
