Our Week in Games – Week 112

Our Week in Games – Week 112

Nvidia have found themselves in the news again with the issues surrounding the business of actually getting your hands on one of their new cards. The 3080 in particular has reportedly not had the best launch, with multiple outlets being hit by purchase bots (makes one wonder just how effective those ‘captcha’s’ are……) only for units to be appearing on auction-sites for ten-times the list price. Interestingly there do appear to be people that insane, desperate, mad invested in the tech to be willing to pay those prices. Unless of course that’s all part of the con.

It’s a shame. A number of retailers and Nvidia themselves have published press-releases stating that they are working around the clock to ensure the orders go into the hands of people who are, you know, actually going to use their cards, down to and not excluding the possibility of chasing up each order one at a time to check it’s a genuine purchase. Their dedication is admirable but I don’t envy them that job.

I suppose, when you’ve just released what is arguably the biggest step forward in graphics technology this decade, coupled with an almost unbelievably low price-tag, you can bet they’ll want to get it right.

We’re now delving into the more advanced tactics associated with playing Tarvok to a higher level. I had hoped to do this in one piece, but as ever my ambition was outdone by my need to write too much… so it’s now being split into two pieces, the first of which will cover Looting and Movement.

The previous piece on the Meta game can be found here and the first piece with the links to all the others can be found here.

Another long post this folks, so get comfortable.

So, what are advanced tactics?

An Escape From Tarkov Guide, Part 6: The Meta Game

Only a few more pieces left folks, you’re doing great. Hang in there. The previous piece on the Hideout can be found here, where we go into detail on the Hideout and what it has to offer.

So, as with most games now it’s not enough to consider the game in isolation, you also need to think about the Meta Game. So how exactly do you do that in Tarkov?

Well, It’s more straightforward than you’d think.

Escape From Tarkov: Early-Beta Thoughts

Escape From Tarkov: Early-Beta Thoughts

So I have a new love. We met in Russia (ostensibly) and just fell for each other during some long walks through the forest. I remember it like it was yesterday. Beautiful meadows, mountains in the distance, the occasional wild flower. Oh and Gunfire and death, lots of death. It was a match made in heaven really.

Perhaps some explanation may be warranted here…..
