The gameplay that was dropped on us last week Red Dead Redemption 2: Official Gameplay

  • What did you think of the gameplay trailer?
    1. Your relationship with your horse is important, but if it dies it dies
  • How many Editions? Don’t do this to me… RDR2 Special Editions And Pre-Order Bonuses Revealed and yes another game edition without the actual game. WTF?  Anyone who wants everything that releases with Red Dead Redemption 2 will have to buy the Ultimate Edition of the game twice (both physically and digitally) and then also grab the Collector’s Box.


You Beta, you Beta, you bet. = COD Black Ops Beta / Do we need Betas anymore?


    • Do you think the Beta is maxing out some (Xbox, PS4 and PS4 Pro) hardware limits? Check out: @iSkyKido’s Tweet:
      1. Black Ops 4 Min vs Recommended PC Beta specs:
        1. There are too many factors in either a PC build or Console build and how programer and console makers take advantage of their hardware or make up for their hardware so let’s just take a limited look at video card computing speeds. So, that said this is not the only metric that goes into how a game looks but we are using this as an example TFLOPS.  What is a Teraflop anyway
        2. PC Video: card specs:
          • Xbox One = 1.3 teraflops, PS4 = 1.8 teraflops, PS4 Pro = 4.2 teraflops, Xbox One X = 6 teraflops
          • Black Ops 4 PC Min:
            1. Nvidia GeForce GTX 660 2 GB / GTX 1050 2GB (1.8 TFLOPS) or AMD Radeon HD 7850 (1.75 TFLOPS)
          • PC Recommended:
            1. Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 970 / GTX 1060 6GB (4.4 TFLOPS) or AMD Radeon R9 390 (5.6 TFLOPS) / AMD RX 580 (6.17 TFLOPS)
              1. COD WWII (2017) had the same min and recommended requirements as BLOPS 4 on PC
              2. COD Infinite Warfare (2016) same min recommended but recommended was: GTX 1050 Ti 4GB Radeon R9 280X (4.3 TFLOPS)
              3. COD BLOPS3 (2015) had min GeForce GTX 470 (1.089 TFLOPS) / Radeon HD 6970 (1.3 TFLOPS)

Our World (Top 3 Things you saw, heard or played)

COD WWII, Forza 3, That song ‘Sawed off Shotgun’ from The Glorious Sons is getting a bunch of radio play and it’s a cool song, ‘Kill the Lights’ I think was their last radio hit, but here is my SOW nomination: The Glorious Sons – “Heavy” or The Glorious Sons – Everything Is Alright (is cool too, but Heavy is my choice) Then I also heard this tune In This Moment – “Black Wedding feat. Rob Halford”
