Bizarre.

I guess they must still have it stored and it got misreferenced.

Or it's ARG.

I got a warranty on my 970 that covers basically everything about the card. I can only hope and pray that it fails in a timely manner so I can get a nice upgrade before the warranty expires. >:)

EDIT: Well, the 1080TI looks nice. I can look forward to playing 4K60 games in 4 or 5 years when I do a proper GPU upgrade.

Hm, with the 1080 price drop I may end up picking it up by next Christmas here in Canada. It would be nice to nab one at $550 CAD on sale at some point.

As nice as it would be to have a 11gb card, think I'll stick with my 1080 for the meantime.

$699. Colour me pleasantly surprised.

I think it's the first non-Fromsoft game to really get the atmosphere and world state of a Souls game. Not necessarily bleak, just...melancholy? Like you know that you are exploring the end of a world that has fallen from glory and is in its final moments, soon to be lost to dust and time. And it's an amazing platformer/2D action game to boot. I just can't say enough good things, and I hope SteamGAF can champion the game at the end of the year as one of the best.

Yup. Great to see Spike Chunsoft not only going for their home country but also all nations interested in their work.

We'll probably here more of their Fire Pro Wrestling tease as well.

yeah...it's been going for a few weeks

but they changed the way you can redeem them now...you have to have the cards the promotion is for (so either a 1070 or 1080) and redeem the code in GeForce Experience

no longer just going to a website and putting in a code

Concur, it's really good. Hoping that performance patch fixes the stuttering, it's hampering my enjoyment quite a bit.

I just got the first mobility upgrade and now I'm racking my mind on where I can go first.

Well game runs at 1080p/60 with perfect frame times 16.6ms but some people still notice some kind of stuttering. I personally don't have any issues with game.

Not clear what the combat system is, but it looks promising. Hope they can get a good translation--there's been a small handful of games on Steam that look great, but are killed by nonexistant or very poor translations.

How about 1440p? I was thinking of grabbing it since I have a gsync monitor that'll alleviate stuttering or tearing.

Then the 1180 will be out by than.

Just do what my friend is doing. Buying the ti out right and ccing the switch. Though he gets 8 months 0 interest on it. Which he will pay it off by then.

I mean don't do that if you are bad at managing your finances I guess lol.
