Checkpoint: $655 Video Card Edition

I originally intended to buy a video card for my new PC some time in the “near future” but I kept putting it off as games kept piling up for my PlayStation 4. I even went ahead and pre-ordered a PlayStation 4 Pro before considering finishing my new PC. Then Microsoft and NVIDIA announced their free Gears of War 4 with a 1070/1080 promo and after a bit of shopping around, I pulled the trigger on an┬áMSI GeForce GTX 1070 ARMOR 8G OC. This purchase is up there with my NVIDIA GeForce 7800GT as one of the most expensive video card purchases.

I was essentially convinced to pick up the video card by a free copy of Gears of War 4. I wanted to buy Gears of War 4 when it hits $30 price range in a few months’ time but this promo accelerated those plans. With the Xbox Play Anywhere initiative, I’ve effectively abandoned my Xbox One. I only had it to play Microsoft’s exclusives and now that they’re bringing titles like Forza Horizon 3 and Gears of War 4 to Windows 10, I’m left wondering why I bought this console.

I just finished Deus Ex: Mankind Divided and I was left feeling like I’m missing another half of the game. I enjoyed what I played but the way they’ve left the story was disappointing to say the least. Up next? I’m probably going to start Dragon Quest VII.
