At First I was like....no way in hell I am going to buy this on EpicStore... but then it strike me....... it is on purpose!!!


3/4 people will pirate it and wait for it to come out on Steam. Meanwhile this 3/4 that pirated it will recommend to 1/2 of people they know and ALL of them will buy it on steam!!! Same way Windows 7 became so popular (becasue milions pirated it and MS didn't give a shite about it, it was free advertisment for them), and people cannot let go of it!!!!!!! :O
don't forget your tinfoil hat man...

BL1 does have physX, just not the hardware-accelerated heavy stuff like liquid/particle effects and destructible objects. Otherwise you have all of your usual stuff like gravity and collision detection, and guns... lots of guns... all handled by NVidia PhysX version 2.8.1.
And if it wasn't developed in collaboration with NVidia, then we wouldn't have Claptrap knocking on NVidia logo at every game start.
i know that. hence i was specifically saying "GPU PhysX".

Probably not alot of thought going on there.
yes actually shitloads of thought, imagine turing on 7nm duv at tsmc instead of failga 7 wasting production time we would have gotten a way bigger jump than we did in perf with ayyyymfail could get out of that process

And imagine the lack of innovation and twice the cost when there is no competition at all, which is what AMD provides. So no, you’ve not given it any real thought.
