God of War PC Review, Nvidia DLDSR Explained Again, STALKER 2 Delayed | Gaming News





Nvidia DLDSR Explained Again

Hello, guys, and welcome to the Gaming News for 13 Jan 2022. Yesterday, I was explaining DLDSR technology from Nvidia, but I got some points wrong which was highlighted to you guys in the comment section. One comment from Jeffrey Melton explains, "I think you got that wrong. I believe it does the opposite. It renders in a high resolution and cramps it into a lower resolution. So, in the example, the left has native 1080p. The middle is the standard DSR where basically renders in 4K and crammed into 1080p but kills the frame rate and the right it shows that it only had to sample 1620p and cram it into 1080p to get just as clean of edges as a 4K sampled on to basically no cost to the frame rate." Sorry that I got that wrong. And thank you guys very much for clarifying.

STALKER 2 Delayed

And the next bit of news for today is STALKER 2 has been delayed, so the developers released a statement which says "Stalkers, We have made a decision to postpone the release of STALKER 2 Heart of Chernobyl to December 8, 2022. These additional seven months of development are needed to fulfill our vision and achieve the desired state of the game. STALKER 2 is the biggest project in the history of GSC and it requires thorough testing and polishing. We are convinced that development should take as long as necessary, especially in the case of such a project. This decision is not an easy one, but we are doing the best possible to deliver you a game that can live up to the expectations. With more information, updates and showcases coming, we have an exciting and important year ahead. Thank you for your patience and understanding. With love, GSC Game World team". I think it's good. As I've covered many times in the Gaming News, more time for polish to make games better, great. Thumbs up from me. I really think that's a great attitude to have when it comes to game development.

God of War PC Review

And the last bit of news for today is thanks to PlayStation, I was able to review God of War PC early and I can confirm it's a great port. As someone who has achieved the Platinum Trophy for God of War on PlayStation, I was very anxious about this being a worthy port for the game, but thankfully it comes with a lot of customisation options which are useful to content creators as well as gamers, and you can ramp up the graphics really high. And then if you toggle on the Nvidia Reflex technology, then it makes the game so responsive that I've had to relearn my timing when it comes to parrying because I still have the muscle memory of the parrying on PlayStation 4. It's a worthy version of an already amazing game. I would highly recommend it and I can't wait to see everyone's reaction to it when they get their hands on it tomorrow. Anyway, guys, that's it for the Gaming News for today. Thank you so much, as always, to all the new followers and I will see you tomorrow. Thanks, guys. Bye bye.

Frequently Asked Questions

I have played hundreds of games in my life and have experienced truly amazing games. As time has passed and games continue to evolve, I want to share my gaming adventures with the world so you can improve your gaming experience too.

There are several gaming franchises I love experiencing a lot such as Final Fantasy, Resident Evil, God of War, Uncharted, Yakuza, Assassin's Creed, The Legend of Zelda, Super Mario, Xenoblade Chronicles and more.

In 1997 when I was 12 years old, a class mate of mine asked me, have you ever played Final Fantasy 7? I was like no, what’s that? He lent me his copy, and I remember on the first night I escaped Midgar after not being able to put it down for 5 to 6 hours even though it was a school night. Shortly after I finished the game and my gaming obsession was truly planted.

Towards the end of 1998 I played Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time. It was a revelation to me, given its combat, story telling, music and satisfying ending. It also gave a hint of what open world could look like given how “huge” Hyrule Field was, which was massive for the time. After nearly 25 years, Zelda 64 Ocarina of Time still sits at the top of my favourite games of all time list.

When I went to University during 2003 to 2007, it was the era of Half Life 2. I remember spending a portion of my student loan so I could get a gaming pc powerful enough to play it.

During that time I also started my adventures in MMOs including Final Fantasy 11 and World of Warcraft. It amazes me that they are still online to this day.

After leaving University, I like most people ended up in the 9 to 5 cycle, after a year of being stuck in the “no job without experience, no experience without a job”. At the time I was still living with my parents and I got distracted on girls for a while. My love for gaming never ended though, with it always being a fall back for me.

In 2013, I started my first YouTube channel, as a way to also document my time in the upcoming Final Fantasy XIV A Realm Reborn. I had seen some YouTubers who made really good videos. For me, at the time, it was a hobby to do on the evening and weekends, I never went into it thinking one day it would be my job. I would have made videos, even if it made no money at all.

After 10 years of multiple jobs, living a very miserable existence in the 9 to 5 cycle, it all abruptly ended in 2018 with my disability of severe anxiety preventing me from commuting to London to work any more.

During the Pandemic, a lot of people were losing their jobs, and there was a lot more time to produce videos and play games. While growing as a content creator, I noticed my Instagram page had little to no content. One day I picked up my phone and recorded a video talking about gaming as it was my favourite hobby.

As I have now played hundreds of games and my passion has evolved for the last 30 years, I see my love for gaming lasting until the day I die. Games have made me laugh, made me cry, and everything in between. The recent price increases have definitely dampened gaming for most gamers, but I am in a privileged position as an Independent Gaming Journalist to receive a lot of games for free from developers and publishers to review.

I hope I can always bring the highest quality Gaming News every day, in digestible 1 to 1.5 minute summaries, to share the passion I have always had for it.

Not at all, I simply starting playing a lot of other games too.

I started in August 2013 as a hobby, and went full time during 2018.

Being a YouTuber, Streamer, or Content Creator is not the primary goal. I am working to enjoy my life and remain independent. I do not want to spend my life taking orders from other people.

I have 10 years commercial experience as a website and database developer that I can fall back on. I was able to develop this entire website using my experience.
