I don't give a crap about AMD vs. Nvidia, although I have a feeling you do. Read the article. "Mass Effect: Andromeda is just around the corner now, so Nvidia have finally released the system requirements." That is misleading, the requirements were already out. "Finally" they say even, as if they haven't been out for nearly two weeks.
"If you want to push it up to 4K or crank up the graphics options, you'll need to fit your rig with a faster GPU, such as the GeForce GTX 1070, GeForce GTX 1080, or newly-announced GeForce GTX 1080 Ti - get the lowdown on Nvidia's beastly GPU at that link"
If that isn't blatantly obvious to you that this is a sponsored post, then I don't think there is anything I could say to convince you. This post is scummy, and if you don't see it you are blinded by fanboyism.
Blinded by fanboyism? Sorry to let you down there but I hold no attachment to either AMD or nVidea. I When I built my PC, I bought a nVidea card based off my friends problems with drivers for his AMD at the time. About 2 months later AMD's company focus changed towards games, and from what I've heard they've been getting better. Either way, my current card holds no effect over my previous comment. I sent the message because you were complaining, being misinformed.
The post is about nVidea sharing new news, yet you see it as PCGN writing a bias sponsored (unlabeled) post against AMD to exclude them. PCGN always make it clear when posts are sponsored (look at any of the actual sponsored posts about Logitech's gear). The wording of this post (both the part you quoted and the specification lists) is copy-pasted from the nVidea post, which IS the latest; most-informative post about the system settings within ME:Andromeda. It shared the settings you can manually change within the menu, something that was not known before nVidea posted their article. PCGN has simply pulled the latest information over to their website, and re-uploaded it. Sure, AMD cards aren't listed, but that's not the poster's fault. It's not like they decided they didn't want to include AMD. They simply pulled the latest data and posted it onto their website. It is not hard at all to compare an AMD card to it's equivalent nVidea card to tell if you can run the game. So why are you slamming the post? It is neither 'stupid' or 'scummy', it simply covers more detail than the previous.
nVidea's original post can be found in the article, hyperlinked on the word nVidea. You can click there and read it. Find the source of the wording you have been so sensitive about. If AMD were to post details about a new game, they would have excluded nVidea's GPU's from their spec lists in the same way, and if they were the first to share new information they would also be in the same place. This exclusion of AMD has nothing to do with fanboyism from anyone here. You're complaining to the wrong crowd. Please do head over and try to complain to the nVidea community about how they excluded your AMD card from their specifications list. I'll happily sit back and watch how that conversation spans out.
This post was all about the nVidea post, which announced the list of available settings within the game. The system requirements list was posted there as a nVidea exclusive list (surprise surprise) along with the whole settings menu.
Seriously whats the problem? nVidea are the company that shared the graphics settings, this is their system requirements list along with all the variables. It is not like PCGamesN are deciding to be anti-AMD or anything else. Surely by now you can already tell if your AMD card can run it based off which nVidea card is listed anyway. Even if you can't, there's a direct hyperlink on this page to the Origin sales page, with the official specifications!
You're stood here taking shots because nVidea shared new information about the system settings. It would have been the other way around if AMD had posted the full settings menu, and my bets are you wouldn't have blinked an eyelid if that were the case. Please stop trying to defend your graphics card, but instead just enjoy games! Both company's cards run them, so why segregate yourself at the smallest obstacle?
You might be in the minority, but you are not alone.
I kind of miss the Mako, that thing was a tank. It could take a serious beating and drive straight up a mountain when needed. The only time I really have any issues is occasionally we would just be cruising along some relatively flat land, then hit a small bump that would flip the Mako over and completely upside down. I am interested to see how they improved things with the Nomad, but I really hope they do more to fix the terrain and not have those weird flippy bumps.
Well I thought it was pretty interesting. I don't own a VR headset and height restrictions isn't something I had considered or heard about before.
This is what we were going for - the interesting design challenges VR can pose in established genres. For clarity, Downpour is just one guy, and what he's produced here is undeniably impressive.
Pretty sure they have said they weren't bringing back the morality system this time around and it was going to be more like Dragon Age. It's looking like you will get your wish.
DA's morality isn't much better. Dragon Age is the one that brought in Red, Blue, and Purple.
