God of War PC will be releasing tomorrow and I was able to receive a copy early for review and can confirm its a worthy port to an already amazing game, I explain Nvidia DLDSR again with the help of the community, and STALKER 2 has been delayed.

Nvidia DLDSR Explained Again

Yesterday, I provided an explanation of Nvidia's DLDSR technology, but it seems that I made some mistakes, as pointed out by one of our readers, Jeffrey Melton, in the comments. He clarified the concept as follows:


"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 it basically renders in 4K and crams it into 1080p, but it kills the frame rate. And on the right, it shows that it only had to sample 1620p and cram it into 1080p to get just as clean edges as a 4K sample, with basically no cost to the frame rate."


I apologize for getting it wrong, and I appreciate Jeffrey for providing the correct explanation. DLDSR technology essentially renders a scene in a higher resolution and then downsamples it to fit a lower-resolution display. The aim is to improve image quality, especially in terms of sharpness and edge detail.


DLDSR can be a beneficial feature for gamers who may not have high-resolution displays or want to push their graphics settings without sacrificing performance. By leveraging DLDSR, they can experience higher visual fidelity without the need for a higher resolution monitor. This technology has been widely adopted by Nvidia and is supported by various Nvidia GPUs.

STALKER 2 Delayed

Moving on to the next topic, it has been announced that the highly anticipated game, STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl, has been delayed. The developers, GSC Game World, released a statement explaining the reasons behind the delay:


"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."


As gamers, we have seen many instances where rushing a game's release can lead to a lackluster experience. It is refreshing to see developers prioritize delivering a polished and high-quality game rather than sticking to strict release schedules.


The GSC Game World team's dedication to their craft and understanding that development takes time is commendable. They have made it clear that they want STALKER 2 to meet and exceed the expectations of fans. With the additional time for testing and polishing, we can look forward to a more refined and immersive experience when the game finally launches.

God of War PC Review

Lastly, let's discuss the PC release of God of War, a highly acclaimed PlayStation exclusive. Thanks to PlayStation, I had the opportunity to review this PC port ahead of its official release, and I can confirm that it is a fantastic adaptation.


As someone who has obtained the Platinum Trophy for God of War on PlayStation, I was initially concerned about how the game would translate to PC. However, I am pleased to report that it comes with a plethora of customization options that cater to both content creators and gamers. These options allow for high graphical fidelity, enabling players to ramp up the visuals to their heart's content.


Furthermore, the inclusion of Nvidia Reflex technology enhances the game's responsiveness, forcing players to readjust their timing when it comes to parrying. Personally, I had to recalibrate my muscle memory from the PlayStation 4 version. The PC version truly does justice to an already remarkable game.


In conclusion, I highly recommend the PC version of God of War to both newcomers and fans of the franchise. The additional graphics options and improved responsiveness provided by Nvidia Reflex make for an even more immersive and enjoyable experience. I am eagerly anticipating the reactions of players when they get their hands on it tomorrow.


Overall, we have discussed the corrected explanation of Nvidia's DLDSR technology, the delay of STALKER 2: Heart of Chernobyl, and the commendable approach taken by the GSC Game World team, as well as the positive review of God of War for PC. These are all noteworthy developments in the gaming industry, and I hope you find this information useful and informative.
