i’ve had a few crash to desktops while tinkering in the options menu but so far my gameplay has been bug free.

Prevaricate and abstruse... 2 words I’ve learned from reading Kotaku in the last week. Abstruse was uttered by Chris Kohler in the Luigi’s Mansion 3 review.

Thank you for expanding my vocabulary!

My concern with this is the sheer size of games now. HD tech has not come in line price wise with the size and scope of gaming. SSD’s are mandatory these days and the price points for many are still simply not up to par. Read more

My decryption took 90 minutes.  Then I got the unexpected error, and an NVIDIA driver update took care of that.  Now I’m getting the stuttering.  I’m going to try switching to DX12 when I’m able to play again.  I’m chipping away at the issues, hopefully a helpful patch will be released soon too.  I’m excited to play Read more

I always hear about how much better PC is over console. And I get it. Larger library, and modding. Read more

The good side of waiting for the Steam release is that it should all be fixed by then.

Riley what resolution are you playing at? I’m a little concerned this is the game that’s going to crush my rig and make me regret not sticking to 2560x1440 when I bought my new monitor.

With a single fan 1060 I can only hope that I’ll manage a good framerate like I got with Exodus. (From what I am assuming in this article) I do think that other than freezes the game can run well, just that the port has its share of issues currently.

disappointing to hear, after how great the GTA V port was

I can’t start the game, did all the troubleshoot steps the support site says and still nothing.

Oh man, I almost bought this thing yesterday!
Guess I’ll just give it a couple of months until they patch it out and put it on sale.

I can certainly understand the frustration here. I too, have been a PC gamer most of my life (I missed out on the entire 32-bit console generation due to learning about PCs and playing games there). And while, yeah, PC stuff typically never launches 100% smoothly, I think Rockstar needs to be held to task for this. Read more

I pre-loaded the entire whopping ~112 gig download, then hit the decrypt button this morning, and it started redownloading the whole thing. Apparently (possibly - according to some random reddit comment I found) you were supposed to restart the launcher, not hit the button, which is... fun.

Glad you found something that worked for you.

I took up video games when I needed to quit. It provided a cheaper activity and social event. I’m slowly working on getting some friends changed over too.

Yes to all of this. Well done, I’m happy for you. I myself am a year and a few months without alcohol and I can relate to this. Thank you for sharing your story.

Thanks for this, it’s something I’ve been struggling with for awhile and reading something relatable helps.

Oh man, Riley. I haven’t drank in a week and I had to stop reading this. Super happy for you, but my dogshit brain turned your inspiring words into an advert for whiskey. 😥
