Apparently there’s a hostage situation at Ubisoft Montreal? Hard to find concrete details but it’s being reported all over.

I was trying to follow it on Twitter, but several tweets were getting deleted, most of it was in French, and it was hard to find reputable non-Twitter reporting. None of this is to say that it isn't serious, but it has been difficult to follow and figure out what's happening at this time.

Was on Playstations queue, said 12 minutes. Waited. It counted down to zero! Said "Redirecting you to Sony Shop".....and kicked me back to end of the queue and made me do a captcha....hour + wait now.

Damn, I have one of their competitors as a client for our search firm and I've talked to several of the employees at that ubisoft office trying to poach them for jobs. Hope thing are ok.

That sucks. When I got in it said 2 minutes wait, then almost immediately updated to more than an hour, which I figured was just a slow update.

What pisses me off more is a friend of mine has managed to get 3 of them on various sites. And I can't for the ****ing life of me even come close to sniffing one. Or a 3080, but that's another ****ing story. I think I'm at the same frustration level that you were yesterday with Walmart. These launches can all kiss my ass.

I sorta want to get kicked out of the queue so that I don't feel compelled to sit here all night.

I called it quits after that earlier bull haha, going to enjoy my night and hope my friend says "hey, you know what, how about I sell you one of my three" instead of being a dick and profiting off all of them.

OH MY GOD I GOT A 3080 WHAT THE ****!!!!!

Newegg had some combos left, comes with a mobo I don’t want but they let you return it you just lose the combo discount (only $20). I can’t believe it.

Grats man! You've been talking about upgrading for so long - happy to have held out and finally got the holy grail? :D

Which did you get?

Instead of playing Demon's Souls like I'd planned to since September, I'm playing The Messenger, a Ninja Gaiden clone that looks straight out of 1989. It's actually pretty good.

Nice my dude! I kind of gave up on the 3080, but I did get lucky and was able to get a 5600X on Amazon so...I guess I’m going to build a new computer? I’ll try for a 6800 XT next week, but I’m assuming it’ll be almost as rough as finding a 3080...

Apparently not yet? I've read that it goes into 16-bit mode at some point. I love the shop dude's chats.

Thanks all! I'm super happy, the 3080 should last me for a looong time. I ended up getting the ASUS TUF Gaming RTX 3080.

Full build is:

Case: NZXT H710i
Mobo: ASUS ROG STRIX X570-E Gaming (switched from B550 due to better overall reviews)
CPU: Ryzen 9 3900X
Cooler: NZXT Kraken X53 Liquid
RAM: G.Skill Ripjaws V Series 64GB (4x16) DDR4-3200
GPU: Asus TUF Gaming RTX 3080 10GB

I picked up a 1TB NVME SSD to go with my 320GB SSD and 8TB HDDs that I already have, and I'll use my EVGA 850w 80+ Gold fully modular PSU from my current build. Maybe went a bit overboard, but I'm stoked. I don't even want the RGB either, I just want white LEDs haha.
