    Anyone?

    This has got to be the best graphics I have ever seen and it is well optimised to run on even a 1060 at 1080p

    But more importantly, is it a immersive title?

    More interested in H:ZD as the moment. That all being said im not too surprised really, last Kojima game on PC ran on a potato and looked pretty good while doing it.

    Yes! I've been waiting for this for a long time now. It does look awesome and I can't wait to play it.

    Sadly, I don't know when that will happen. I've put myself in a bit of a pickle.

    I'm mad at Valve for the bs move they're doing with shipping Index orders: prioritizing full kits over headset+controller only orders, without explaining why, without having posted anything about this back in March when I placed my order. Also support is straight up lying saying that they ship them out in order.
    There is a discrepancy of over one month now for full kit orders already being shipped which were placed after mid April, while folks who placed their orders around beginning of March for the headset+controller are still being ignored and showing 8+ weeks ETA.

    For now, I'm making a point of not buying anything from Steam until this gets solved, even if I have to get my hands dirty to play some games.

    It's not the fault of the developers of those games that Valve is doing something you don't like. Unless you just meant using a different store. (Keysellers are garbage)

    I know that, but I also know that a large part of the price we pay for a game on steam, goes to Valve, so it sort of made sense. On the other hand, only alternative is epic which I despise way more... so it's currently downloading on steam :/

    It does look amazing. Right at the beginning I was sure I was looking at a real life scene. So far it seems to be running very smoothly.

    A screenshot doesn't do it justice but here is one:

    After about 3 hours in all I can say wow. It's nothing like any other game out there. It's immersive af and properly creepy. Really really creepy so far.

    The plan was just to fire it up to see how it looks and I can check it out tomorrow, can't stay long because I have early meetings... this was 3 hours ago :D Only stopped now because I really need a bathroom break and I did realize how late it is.

    Yeah I put a few hours into Death Stranding today. Game is very unique, really fun. Looks really beautiful.

    Makes me want to buy a 9900K because I'm really CPU bound with my 1080p display. I cap out around 140-150fps with DLSS set to Quality.

    150fps is a bit overkill for a 3d person game...60 is plenty....but them animations at 150 would look insane will someone post a video or pictures of what this game looks like up close to something....textures ect

    To each their own, but I simply can't easily accept less than 120fps anymore. The temporal resolution is just too high to sacrifice.

    Regarding the game's tech, take a look at this test:

    I can also feel the difference with a high fps game vs something under 60ish but in this game, that's the last thing that matters. The movement is not that fast. The graphics, the detail, the terrain, the atmosphere are just amazing.

    Also, it is well optimized. Haven't encountered one slowdown and my fans haven't kicked on high at all. In comparison, there are many other games which look much much worse and my laptop struggles way more and gets way hotter. I'm impressed with Death Stranding.

    I can see that it may not be for everyone but I enjoy it thoroughly. Last night I spent a few hours just running around gathering materials for a couple road sections. Some may call it a tedious grind but those hours just flew by. I am still playing it offline, I just wanted to see the barren landscape without notices and marks of other players but down the line I see the point of pooling resources.

    Small tip, not spoiling anything: when fighting MULEs, parry is king ;)


    Edit: I also love the Half-Life easter eggs. They make me smile all the time:
