SOFTWARE & DRIVERS
NVIDIA GeForce 431.36 WHQL driver improves performance in The Division 2, Metro Exodus & Strange Brigade
NVIDIA has released a new driver for its graphics cards. According to the release notes, the NVIDIA GeForce 431.36 WHQL driver adds support for the SUPER GPUs and improves performance in The Division 2, Metro Exodus & Strange Brigade.
Furthermore, this new driver adds support for three new G-SYNC compatible monitors (these models are the LG 34GL750, HP 25mx, and HP Omen X 25f). This driver also adds an SLI profile for F1 2019, something that may please those that are still using SLI systems in 2019.
As NVIDIA noted, the performance increase in Metro Exodus is 10.5% compared to the previous Game Ready Driver. The Division 2 sees 3.6% performance improvement and Strange Brigade sees a 7.7% performance improvement.

This Doom 2 mod turns off all the lights
Doom 2 is pretty well-lit for a labyrinth full of demons, and after 25 years its power to intimidate has perhaps diminished a little, but there's a solution! Night64K is a mod that turns out all the lights, forcing you navigate the darkness with flares.
Regular Doom 2 in the dark would of course be entirely impossible, so regular enemies have been stripped out and replaced by Shadows, nasty monsters that will invade your personal space and try to tear you to shreds.
