I know better now to say that Iâ€™m not going to get new consoles when they release. I said I wouldnâ€™t for the Switch and then was there day one. I said I wouldnâ€™t for the two new systems, and yet they were both hooked up to the TV right after Thanksgiving. Donâ€™t tempt the hype, or youâ€™ll hype yourself into buying these things.
The â€œnew and shinyâ€ disease is a real thing.
The one thing that still eludes me so far is a new graphics card for my PC. People can say what they want about how hard it is to get the new game consoles, but itâ€™s nothing compared to the new video cards for the PC. These have been released since September and it is STILL insanely difficult to grab one. Eventually, and I donâ€™t know when this will be, theyâ€™ll be easier to come by, but Iâ€™ve never seen it this bad this far into the release. And it isnâ€™t just the one card I want – thereâ€™s a whole family line of these things in different versions made by different brands and NONE of them can stay in stock.
Guess Iâ€™ll be playing Cyberpunk on one of my new systems or not as pretty as Iâ€™d like on my PC.
In the meantime, Ubisoft, itâ€™s been 2,665 days since the last Splinter Cell release (non-animated series or guest spot in another game franchise or VR exclusive).
