Obviously, I was forced to engage in chops-busting. If I see a chop, I go in. That being said, I mean… I don’t give a fuck what he’s got in there as long as he’s got his hand on a mouse.
In truth, as much as I may not like it, that 1050 he has in there is more than enough for whatever we’ve been playing. He’s not going to do any Cyberpunk on there, not in any upright and moral way, but he’d be playing that on a console anyhow - that’s not what this PC is for. His PC is designed to manifest Steam darlings and skim indie cream, and it is exemplary for this task. We play Paladins every night, and talk on Discord. It’s like a dream I had, once.
Every now and then cross-platform play would enable us to both get what we wanted; Star Trek: Bridge Crew let him play on PSVR while I was on the PC and that seemed almost magical. Technically speaking I don’t know how magical it is. It’s just, like, packets. For PVE games, crossplay should really be the norm. For virtual reality titles it’s the only way to maintain a playerbase, but philosophically speaking it’s just good sense.
And, look. It’s a 1050. Yeah. But let’s say that he did find a game that he wanted to play, or wanted to play with us. The Division 2, let’s say. He can just put in another card! Now that he has the box - which is to say, now that I’ve won - the rest is trivia.
