No Through Road Island Edition

Top Story

  • The much-anticipated Cities: Skylines 2 is out, and I was hoping to finally build my new PC, with a configuration that could run the game comfortably at 4K.

    Looks like I won't be doing that any time soon, first because my money may be headed to something else entirely, and second because there is no such configuration.  (Rock, Paper, Shotgun)

    An RTX 3070 - a decent card from the previous generation - at the 1080p High setting, gets 13fps.  The 4070 Ti, which is the fastest Nvidia card at anything resembling a sane price, gets 22fps.

    And that's at 1080p, not 4K.

    I'll leave it for six months.  I might buy it - I'm definitely going to play it at some point - but it looks like it needs some more time in the oven.

Going to have your house rotated so it's aligned with the plot?

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
