Graphics in a game is last thing I care about. I still play SNES and PSX games nowadays and most of them are for me much better fun than any graphics dependent current gen game. And laptop for me is a no go, because I rather sit on my sofa and play on my 46" TV, than on 15-17" laptopscreen or 22-24" monitor.

Rather than buying expensive notebook/pc and monitor, I purchase a console and quality big TV.

*Sigh*... Why bother? You'd just contest whatever I post with a wall of text, right?

And no, 1050ti won't get much better than 860m gtx, the 860m gtx is a DirectX 12 card just like the 1050 ti. This stuff that you're making up is quite odd. You're making it look like your low-end 1050 ti will last longer than any other card - it won't. It will have the same shelf life as any other gpu, it definitely won't last longer than the 860m gtx laptop gpu. That's just something you're making up although for the life of me, I can't figure out why.

Can you provide proof to a link to support your claim that the 1050 ti will get more driver support than any other DX12 gpu? Perhaps something from nVidia themselves so it would be more tangible/credible. I'll make you a deal, if you can provide me with the proof of your statement, then I will provide you with mine. I think that's only fair ;)

I don't mind achievements, I don't particularly care for them but I don't mind when people say "I just got the last achievement! OMG!!!" To me it's just a clever way for devs and pubs to make a game more appealing to the competitive audience.

If you install a game and play in offline mode, you won't get achievements, so that's one way of avoiding them on Steam. You won't get them til you play the game while online. At least that's why I have only the endgame achievements with 0.1 hours on Mad Max and Soma where as I should have all the achievements :)

I just ignore achievements altogether. The difficulty setting is far more important. Graphics are part of the package, they don't make a game good or bad on their own (except I generally hate really low res graphics). Also they're more important for say a game with lots of exploration than for a strategy game.

Agreed, I think graphics are just as important as the gameplay and story, as well as character designs. I think I've said it before. If the art style or playable characters don't appeal to me then I won't consider buying the game... while that may sound shallow at first impulse, it really isn't because I'm not as picky as the statement suggest.

I love pixel art graphics and cel-shading, both have evolved do much over the years, becoming better and better with new artists and techniques. This is especially shown in 2D fighters. I also love photorealistic graphics. What I don't like? I've never bought a game with voxel graphics so that's the only style Ive really had a problem with.

I don't think people would say "graphics do not matter" if we went back to Pong/Pac-Man style graphics for our games. PoE2 graphics seem astounding and nobody's going too say "Obsidian should focus on the game play instead of giving us those great graphics" because nobody is going to complain about an rpg having better graphics, instead FPS usually fall victim to an rpg player's critique which I always found a bit odd. And perhaps that's just because rpg's have evolved much slower graphically than any other genre of game.

Anyways, as one forum out of many, I think going to a CDPR (Witcher) forum or an fps forum and people will say graphics matter just as much as game play. That's my thought at least :)

I have posted many reviews about Nvidia 1050 Ti 4GB DDR5. You have posted no links or proofs whatsoever. For the record I consider Nvidia 1050 TI 4GB DDR5 rather as middle end card. Nvidia 1060 6GB DDR5 is what I consider upper middle class card. Nividia 1070 and Nvidia 1080 are both high super end cards.

 

How about we end this conversation. I don't need to prove anything to you and I am happy with my computer. Enjoy your Nvidia 1080 8 GB DDR5 graphic card that is super high end and you can use 4k resolution and virtual reality in those games that support it. I could certainly afford better, but I have higher goals as financial freedom hopes for future. What does it matter when all the games I have played on my laptop including Pilllars of Eternity I ran at max settings at full HD which is ok resolution for me? The Division does not interest me at all really. I already told what demanding FPS I might be interested in (Call of Duty World War II), but it has not been released yet and there is no official system requirements released for that game. You can find youtube full of reviews of graphic cards and I have already posted some of them.

 

This conversation ends here.

Yes, totally disregard all the unprovable BS you stated about the 1050 ti having more driver support from nVidia, right? I already said, I'll post some legit info as soon as you provide proof that nVidia will support the 1050 ti longer than any other gpu on the market currently. It should be easy for you so you know so much and aren't copying and pasting from somewherw else.

Just because you mix your BS with other people's facts or spec-sheets doesn't magically make your BS true. May this be a lesson to you. Now get off your high horse and learn to take one for a team.

Oh and don't tell me when the conversation is over as if you can control me or insinuating that I can no longer reply. You embaressed yourself the moment you came here acting like you were someone of higher intelligect - clearly you're not. You're just a faceless random so I'll decide for myself when the conversation ends.

Thanks for proving my point and have a great day :)

For clarification, I don't necessarily care about the achievements.  I was mainly just noting that, strangely, I didn't get one for completing Prey since every other video game I've played on the PS4 gives you an achievement for completing the main story.

 

It was more of a "Hmm, that's weird ... wonder if the achievement is glitched" rather than a "OMG WTF!?  WHERE IS MY TROPHY!?" type reaction.

Yeah, it happens... I mean trophies/achievements are just as buggy on consoles as they are on pc and most of the time it's not the game's fault but the format or something else entirely.

Every Lego game has been awesome and totally different from the next.

Lego Batman 3 Beyond Gotham is a great game. I will tell you why. Although it lacks the vast open world of Lego Batman 2, Lego Batman 3 has more inclusion and use of the heroes and villains of the DC Universe. What's more is that you can go to space and different planets which is also noce - even moreso if you are familiar with the DC lore. You have Stephen Amell voicing Arrow in the Green Arrow dlc. There's alot of small stuff that Traveller's Tale does to keep every Lego game uniqe and fresh. I also recommend Lego Marvel Super Heroes which has a sequel coming out in November and it's going to be absolutely amazing.
