    He isn't in shorts... but Uncharted is pretty much the "male Tomb Raider"...

    That depends on which Tomb Raider we're talking about. The new rebooted one? Sure, albeit it's fair to say that the modern TR is like Uncharted (not the other way around). I kinda miss the Core design template, where it was more about platforming and the exploration that came with it, than about "survival" in an "open world".

    I've watched some more stuff and i actually think it look good, was abit too quick to judge it.

    As for Tomb Raider, the second game is one of my all time favourites and the first and only game to give me vertigo, but i'm pretty sure there is alot of nostaligia and lower standards in there.

    People are complaining about the writing, but it's obvious a lot of that dialog is out of place. Used to effect in the trailer, and not where it's actually used in the game.
    They've done this with past games.

    I can’t seem to get vsync to work in this game, I searched the net and a lot of people say they can’t get it to work. Does anyone have a fix?

    Dang, still not working. I’m using the newest drivers, I haven’t seen vsync broken in years.

    Had no problems with Wolf 2. No stuttering/hitching, even when I was on my old 970.
    But, because of the 970's vram limitations, I kept the settings to where they would work within 3.5 gig of video memory. Because with that card, the minute you go over the 3.5 threshold, you're opening the door for issues.

    Would've been a great card, but Nvidia truly screwed it over with that awful video memory setup.

    If you have SLI turned on, might want to try disabling it for this particular game. I'm sure Wolfenstein 2 doesn't support SLI so that might be causing your issues.

    Yeah, I initially played the game with my old GTX 970, and it ran great except in a few locations where you can tell there was level loading stutter in some locations. I got $30 or so back from a lawsuit from that 3.5 GB thing, so...

    I forget which specific settings alleviated the 3.5 GB stutter issue for this game... I think a texture setting to the second to lowest. I did some tests and the image quality is the same except it just loads less textures in at once... or something like that.

    Yeah, there was a class-action lawsuit against Nvidia for the memory allocation on the 970.
    It was, IIRC, false advertising as nowhere in the description of the product did it state that the 4gigs of memory were actually two different speeds.

    they weren't 2 different speeds.

    all memory could be accessed at the same rate, as long as you weren't addressing both regions of the upper memory at the same time.

    Under DirectX or maybe openGL, it's presented as two different VRAM pools. Most games just ignored (didn't use) the slower .5 GB pool unless it really needed it. In the end it had a minor effect, but very convenient for nVidia, it was revealed a number of months after the launch.

    It is not presented as 2 different pools,

    What happened is Windows managed the upper region for its own compositor and system theme which could get away with being in the slower region.

    There was never any driver tweaks that prevented games from making use of it, apart from windows itself preferring not to fully relinquish the region.

    Just finished this, finally. Of the new Wolfensteins, Old Blood is still my favorite. TNO and TNC are good games technically but they both left me feeling kind of cold. Too much storytelling in a Wolfenstein game for my taste. TOB feels like I'm playing a revamped RTCW.

    That's because it kinda was. TOB is basically a retelling of RtCW's first chapter. TNO was fine in my eyes, as it was a new take on the series. I disliked TNC for similar reasons as you posted. Too much cutscenes, dialogue, and (unlikable) characters. Some of the tweaks to combat made it a chore, rather than fun. The game was also tone-deaf, as it bounced from rather unpleasant edgy violence to raucous comedy at the drop of a hat.

    TOB was best suited for someone like me. The plot was easy to follow, no overt edgelordery was present, the stages and encounters were fun, the game had like 5 characters that you encountered (mostly) one by one, and I like the return to linear level progression. The final boss was nothing to write home about, but for (basically) two DLCs sandwiched together, it was OK. I didn't bother with Youngblood, as the trailers turned me off immediately (no fan of the gameplay either).
