Do people really care about VR? I guess they wouldn't be doing it if it wasn't worth it. I don't personally know anyone in my gaming circle that does. That's not very scientific though.

Oops.. you guys also had someone else post this after you..

Anyway, this bodes really well considering the game is probably not optimized yet.Reply

The demo was likely highly optimized. It by no means is an accurate depiction of how the full game may perform.

uh huh... Call me when this game is GA...Reply

Honestly, I couldn't help but laugh at this part.


It's closer to the truth to say that everyone who bought into it are waiting on the universe.


Unless there is a deeper, more philosophical meaning behind it. As in your universe consists of waiting... then it's 100% accurate.

The Old Blood is a good game in it's own right. I really liked it. No reason not to play it IMO. Get it on a Steam sale it's fun.


It is definitely extremely rare that a game sequel ever requires you to play the previous ones though. Even things like Mass Effect don't ever require you to. My gaps between games are usually so long I can't remember many details by the time I get to the sequels anyway.

New Order has a far better campaign than the Old Blood and a lot of people I talked too weren't overly happy with the boring zombies in the Old Blood.

Hopefully it's still as quiet as the previous model was touted to be. IMO the fan noise is the bane of every gaming laptop's existence, and I had heard they did a damn good job in that regard. I was interested in looking into that line when I finally get around to upgrading my beast if they were still making it.Reply

Absolutely. The 40 dBA target for Max-Q is a massive part of the appeal - it was especially impressive with the original Zephyrus.


Hopefully the latest model will match the thermals of the original model despite the full-fat GPU. Alongside the lower price, it could be a top contender in 2018 if it all works out.

Have to say when I tried it at CES, running a relatively graphically intense VR game (Echo Arena) the noise wasn't noticeable.


One of the reasons it's such a reassuringly weighty box is the level of cooling Intel have jammed inside. It's an overclockable chip too, so it's been designed with a fair chunk of thermal headroom built in.
