    COD Modern Wareare

    I think I'm about halfway through the campaign. It's incredible, and already my favorite Call of Duty campaign. It feels similar to the old Modern Warfare campaigns but better and in-line with the modern terror threats that the world has faced with militant groups - the one level felt like it drew inspiration from the 2012 Benghazi embassy attack. The characters are memorable and unique. The graphics on PC are spectacular, and it's very well optimized - easily reaching 1440p/60 on a 1080Ti at max settings (wish RDR2 did the same). The weapons feel authentic, mounting up against cover feels natural. Breaching doors feels intense. Overall, I think it's really good

    Single player games

    That's strange. Both the Steam forum and pcgamingwiki show that it should support 3440x1440. Try using Geforce Experience to optimize for that game and see if it sets the resolution correctly. Else try see if everything is correct in the cfg file : 1. Go to %USERPROFILE%\Saved Games\Arkane Studios\dishonored2\base\ 2. Right click and open dishonored2Config.cfg with a text editor and look for r_fullscreen 3. If present change value from 2 to 1 otherwise add r_fullscreen "1" manually at the end of the file and save. And check if the resolution is correct in the file too.

    Single player games

    Contrary to all the reviews, I really enjoyed Far Cry 5. If you haven't played it yet, it is worth considering. Rage 2 is also a first person shooter singleplayer game set in a post apocalyptic world with some very good gunplay but the open world is not as full of life as the areas in Metro Exodus. It is however 50% off on Steam for the next couple days. I know Wolfenstein Youngblood came out this week, but it seems to be focused on more RPG elements and loot with bulletsponge enemies with levels like Far Cry New Dawn which I didn't like either. Borderlands 3 is also coming out in September but it's very much a RPG/loot based game which is very different to the games you mentioned. I also have to mention Assassins Creed Odyssey. It's a 3rd person open world RPG complete with dialog options. It was my favorite game last year but Greece is a huge open world and it takes a lot of time to finish, especially with the expansions (I think I'm at over 100 hours for the main game and expansion 1, haven't begun the Atlantis expansion yet which is probably another 15-20 hours)

    What's Inside Your Cooler?

    That was pretty informative. Never really paid much attention to heat pipes before. It's quite cool to see what the interior looks like, it's a lot rougher than I would've imagined.

    Choose between 2 SATA SSDs please

    Welcome back They are both good choices. I see that one difference is that the Crucial MX500 500gb is warrantied for 5 years/150TBW whereas the Samsung 860 Evo 500gb is 5 years/300TBW. I would go for the Samsung. I'm currently using a Samsung 850 Pro 256gb and a Samsung 850 Evo 1Tb and have been impressed with them.

    Front Page News Section

    I noticed that too. You have to click on the link "Back to original news post" and comment at the bottom of the article. It will then show up in both the comments section of the article and as a post in the thread located in the "OCC Front Page News" section.
  8. Looking forward to this. Loving the location, London looks great. The night lighting in the E3 demo looked incredible too.

    New Forum ??

    Same. I tend to read more and post less these days. Wish I did that when I was a teenager On a side note, is it just me or is the text not very visible when you quote a post ? It's black on a dark blue background in the quote block while I'm typing this reply.

    It's very CPU intensive in some areas. I was having dips into the low 50s on a 4770k @4.5GHz and overclocked 1080Ti at 1080p. Ended up using DSR and using half refresh rate vsync for 4K/30 on controller. Feels so much smoother. I'm normally a keyboard and mouse guy, but using controller in this game seems to be more enjoyable.

    I feel that the excessive loading screens hurt the game a lot. Even on an SSD, they're still annoying and are present almost everywhere. After coming from Assassins Creed Odyssey, I was surprised to see a loading screen when I entered a cave in Anthem. I hear the Frostbite engine is far from ideal for open world games.

    I'm Back - Get me squared away.

    Good to see you again, it's been a while
  15. I'd own and shoot more guns if I lived in the US, but since I'm from South Africa there's a lot of hoops to jump through to get a gun. (Like a 6+ month wait for your first gun, police have to interview at least 3 family members or friends or colleagues, handguns being 50% more expensive than the US price and double the price for rifles, can only own 200 rounds max per gun unless you join a club and shoot every month or two) I've got a Glock 26 Gen 4 that I carry whenever I leave the house, which I also use for my local club's competitions (and since I shoot regularly enough, the 200 round max doesn't apply to me) but I'm also going to be shooting IDPA BUG with it soon. I've also got a Taurus .38 Special snub revolver which was my first gun until I could afford a better gun. now I shoot the Glock much more than the revolver. Grandfather's got a FN 1910 in .380 that he last shot about 20 years ago. It was sitting in a gun shop's storage for about a decade, and somehow the front bushing got lost. Managed to find a replacement part at my local shop. Cleaned it thoroughly with Ballistol so now I just need to oil it and convince my 90 year old grandfather to come with me to the range so I can try it out.
