The first new game mode sine the beta released is being added to Red Dead Online today . It's called Gun Rush and it's a battle royale mode.

Yeah, I figure the 1080 will be more than enough to last me a few years until I feel like doing another massive overhaul to my entire rig. I'm not quite sure what to expect to pay for it though. I had a 780 in mine prior, but I don't want to drop TOO much money on the 1080 since it's, well, a few years old. I'll still pay a fair price though.

Uhhh yeah a GTX 1080 is absolutely still top of the line. I'm keeping mine for another two years unless my money situation changes drastically soon. Or until Nvidia stops putting their sausages into their customer's keisters. Don't let the tech industry pull one over on you, you do NOT need any kind of RTX unless you absolutely HAVE to have top of the top of the top of the line. As of now, RTX is a fad. It's a joke in terms of what the customers get from price to performance ratio. If you have money to burn, okay yes, it's awesome. If not, it's a slap to the face. Like all techonlogy that jumps quicker than the industry can keep up with, it's going to be a good loooong while before we see games using RTX in the everyday scenario that doesn't utterly destroy the FPS.

So absolutely, if you can find a 1080 that's around 350-420, do it. I just sold one on ebay for 500 bucks (I wasn't scamming, that was the Buy It Now price and for some reason someone did it; there wasn't even any bids yet lmao, which I will not argue against since I'm broke) so there is still a HUGE market for it because again, anyone that knows the technology beyond laymen terms knows that a 1080 is still an extremely powerful card that, unless you're going 4K, is good to go for at least a couple years to come.

It's a weird time for the GPU industry because we've got mining cards on the market still, we've got RTX breaking out of the gates saying that it's revolutionary when in reality it's nothing more than a fad (twice over, barring those that have the money and monitors for it) and Nvidia is sitting on a goldmine of Pascal cards that are perfectly adequate (or more so, in my opinion, when it comes to the 1080ti). Be wary, look in detail over what cards your buying (i.e. don't buy an ebay card that uses stock photos that is SUPER cheap and also don't buy a card that has "mining" every other word because it's probably someone trying to slip their beef in your taco).

eBay absolutely has the price to performance ratio down, you just have to look for it. There's tons of people out there wanting to upgrade that will sell off their near-perfect 1080's for a whoooole lot cheaper than retail price, it just takes a little detail oriented eyeing and some luck.


In actual video game news. RESIDENT EVIL 2 REMAKE DEMO MY BOIS!!!! I'M ABOUT TO PLAY IT AHHHH! I cannot believe it's 30 minute demo but I know that once I'm done I'll be glad because I'd literally play it every day until the actual game releases if there was no cut off and probably get burned out. I never thought this would happen after how long the wait between the REmake and RE2...make. But it's here. Kind of. Fuck YES.

I agree with Tio, I bought a 2080 simply because I wanted a new gen card. That being said I'm about to install Battlefield V to see how abyssal RTX is.

Awesome, a 1080 it is then. Time to save. :)

I was under the impression that since the 1080 was a few years old there was already a card out there just as good if not better for what I'd pay for a 1080, but again I've fallen way out of the loop since the Switch came out and stole my attention for gaming.

Yeah a 1080 is still one of the top cards and the new ones are only slightly better but not significantly at all, plus barely any games that support RTX  :P . Now that the cryptocurrency madness has been slowly dying, you can get a 1080 Ti for peanuts.

The crypto market really wrecked gpu prices for a while.

Go to www.reddit.com/r/buildapcsales and check daily. Occasionally some good deals on a 1080 or 1080ti will pop up. I think a few days ago there was a 1080 for something like $380.

I have a 1080 myself and so far it can handle everything I throw at it, it's a great card.

I am playing the Resident evil 2 demo now. Holy shit. Not only is it damn good, but creepy as fuck. I remember being freaked out by the original when I was like 8, but this is a WHOLE nother level. God damn

I hope this game does real well.

Any really good golf games on the newer consoles?  Links 2004 is by far the best of all golf games I've played, and that was on the original Xbox and PC's at the time. The Tiger Woods games don't even hold a candle to Links 2004.

In all seriousness, Mario Golf on N64 was one of the best golfing games ever made.

Are there any new golfing games?  I haven't played one in ages and based on the comments here seems the best were all from the past.  Feels like wrestling games, although I know they spit one out every year or so, but the best are the old ones from N64 (No Mercy FTW).

Well I finished the man story of Red Dead II and just started the epilogue. Easily the best game I've ever played. They really did a great job with all of the character development.

Games like that really make me itch for a PS4. And I'll be forced by the will of my internal Kingdom Hearts fanboi to buy one soon anyway, so that's good to hear.

It's really a shame that Rockstar hasn't utilized a department dedicated strictly to PC because they'd be making BANK and make a whole lot of gamers happy. It really sucks.

I ripped through the campaign because I wanted to finish it before Online launched. Last night I went back to the single player for the first time since Online came out, and I have to say, it's really spectacular. With no missions or tasks to worry about, I just roamed around and explored in depth for the first time. There is so much stuff in the world, I don't even know where to begin. It's almost like no matter where you go in that world, it looks like an excruciating level of detail was spent on every square inch of it.

For sure! I'm going to finish the epilogue this week and then I'll be in the same situation. Planning on getting 100% so it will be fun to just explore the world.

If you go on twitch and see what games people are watching, GTA5 is usually still pretty high on the list and how old is that game now?  :lol I don't understand why Rockstar hasn't invested more into PC, there's just a huge market there for it and I'd imagine RDR2 would be near the top of most watched games.

There's a business strategy in NOT releasing for every platform at the same time. Like they did for GTA V, release for the old consoles only first to dry that market out and sometime later for the new consoles and dry that out and lastly release for the PC and follow that with a gazillion DLCs. R* knows how to suck it's customers dry. Something similar will happen for RDO.

I kind of had a feeling news like this was gonna happen, considering that we've heard almost nothing since the announcement trailer. I wish they would have just gotten Retro to do it in the first place, but am glad its back into competent hands rather then get released as some half baked shit show. I'm willing to wait, but it would be nice to have Prime trilogy on the Switch to hold me over...

Primes 1 and 2 are two of my favorite games of all time on any system/console. And 3 was highly enjoyable. I haven't had any intention of buying a Switch (lack of funds and free time) but the mere thought of another Prime game has me itching for one.

Somehow in my NES/SNES years I never owned Metroid/Super Metroid so only got around to those much later in life.

I'm willing to wait some more for a great Metroid Prime sequel. Exciting to hear that Retro Studios is back at the helm, like it should be!

I might even buy a Switch for this game.
