    Dead Space remake

    I'll ask again... Why do you care? Does his poor experience somehow worsen your own? It's an old game. Old games sometimes have issues. There are more than three of them. Why can't you just accept that instead of pushing this bewildering "the game only has three issues for everyone...

    Tom Clancy's X-Defiant

    The thinking was money. Ubisoft doesn't care about originality. I don't think they really care about video games anymore. It's no longer a craft, it's a means to an end. Their passion died many years ago. This game is the result of a bunch of execs wanting a drop in replacement for Warzone...

    Dead Space remake

    Why are you so determined to prove its a good port, to the extent that you seem to take it personally when someone disagrees? Does it really matter if someone else's experience differs from yours? I also revisited the original just over a month or so ago. I hit a game breaking bug very early on...

    Tom Clancy's X-Defiant

    That could be said for everything Ubisoft has made in the past 8 years. And probably everything they'll ever make going forward.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Joycons suck ass as controllers. They're small, uncomfortable, and nothing about them feels premium or well designed. Id much rather have one perminent controller than two detachable shitty ones. The only reason they're sensible on the switch is because they're good for little kid hands and it's...

    I'm pretty sure this will be far worse. I think I saw 2hrs somewhere?

    Max Payne 1-2-3

    I liked 3 well enough, but it definitely didn't have the same magic that 1 and 2 had. Those were absolute masterpieces. If there is any game that deserves a full remake, it's the first two max Payne games.

    ...And here I was all proud of my 10:01 AM order.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Valve is never going to advocate doing this. Partially because they want you to buy their premium model, partially because it will void your warranty. I don't regret getting the 512gb model. I don't have to take it apart or void my warranty, and the anti glair screen is a nice touch.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I agree with this. Gabe said it has an M.2 slot. That is literally all he said. That's probably a true statement. He didn't say it was user accessible or upgradeable.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Over the steam deck? Extremely unlikely. We've got two points of information at this point, a video claiming the only storage upgrade is via SD card, and an extremely basic e-mail from Gabe claiming M.2 2230. My guess is that both statements are true. Nothing about this device looks user...

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I understand not wanting to support scalpers, but do you really want Valve to ship a PC with some sort of DRM that prohibits resale? Im sure it's illegal in most markets, and definetly goes against consumer rights. They can only do so much to prevent reselling. I'm happy with the steps they took.

    Damn, sorry dude. I think perhaps demand was greater than anticipated.

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    I think it's partially because people were really underwhelmed that the fabled Switch Pro turned out to be the OLED model. Valve's timing was impeccable. I also think to an extent, it's just because people have spent the last year and a half not being able to buy things they want to buy...

    Took me a while to get that too. Steam got hit hard (as expected). Hopefully you snagged one unknowingly!

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Check your account history and see if something went through. I had one in my cart at 12:01 and made it to the checkout screen but never saw an order confirmation. Kept trying and got the same error about too many attempted purchased. Checked my account history and it showed a pending...

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Best I can find, raw performance should be very similar. The deck will probably have a better build quality. Probably better "controllers" (buttons, analogs, triggers, etc). You also get the trackpads which im sure will be clunky but it at least allows for native support of games that do not...

    Steam Deck officially announced by Valve

    Got a 512GB reservation in at 10:01. Hopefully that means I won't be waiting until 2023 for one.

    Valve is making a Switch-like portable gaming PC

    I'm beyond excited for this thing. That price is surprisingly low. Reserving my slot tomorrow for sure!

    New OLED Nintendo Switch dropping October 8th

    Will they? I try to avoid Nintendo centric reddits and such because Nintendo fanboys are fucking annoying. But in the places where they intermingle, I haven't seen a whole lot of positive reactions. Seems more like people are just pissed that the Switch Pro rumors were not true.

    New OLED Nintendo Switch dropping October 8th

    Were it not delayed, you'd have played that low rez, crappy audio version of BOTW on your Wii U. You still could have done that when it released. Nintendo gave you exactly what you bought a Wii U for, you did not have to buy a Switch for the better version, you chose to. Also, If you only wanted...

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    It is, but it's a different version that Siege. RDR2 is DLSS 2.2.10, Siege is 2.2.6. Rust also used 2.2.10 and while I don't play it I seem to recall some complaints about it too, where people were doing the same thing and swapping over the file from Siege.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    DLSS implementation is terrible on my end, the worst I've ever seen. Lots of other people saying the same thing on Reddit. There is all sorts of artifacting issues introduced when DLSS is enabled, mostly shimmering. Trees are by far the worst offender for me. When light passes through them, they...

    Assassin's Creed Infinity

    No AC for four years is the only part of this that sounds right. I'm still not interested, but at least they're taking their time, which is pretty un-ubisoft. Truthfully, I think the only thing ubi could do to get me Interedted in AC again is another black flag... And even then I'm not sure...

    Assassin's Creed Infinity

    I agree it's necessary, and is pretty standard in open world games by now. What matters is the amount of attention the world gets after. Using procedural generation to build a baseline is fine, but it's not good at creating things that are interesting. That still requires (a lot of) human touch...

    Assassin's Creed Infinity

    Because development resources are finite. Often the bigger a game gets, the more things get procedurally generated instead of hand crafted. Personality gets lost. No Man's Sky is a good example of this. Infinitely larger than any other game, and yet despite no world being the same, they all...

    Assassin's Creed Infinity

    Ubisoft is hell bent on running this franchise into the ground. I want to be upset about it, but I'm not sure I even really care anymore. Black Flag was the last truly great Assassins Creed game. This just lets me finally lay to rest a franchise that I've spent the last 5 iterations thinking...

    The Witcher 3 Wild Hunt: Official Thread

    I'm sure they could, in some form. If reshade can add RT, no reason the developer can't use similar methods. Likewise, it's certainly possible in older engines, given that they put RT in Quake 2. That said, I don't see why they ever would. TW3 still holds up in 2021. It's still has the potential...

    Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

    Watching this live... The moment that top gun chime played over a quick cut to an aircraft carrier was a huge "oh shit!" moment for me. Top Gun basically defined my childhood. This is fucking rad.

    Xbox Series S

    This could honestly be a game changer for the Series S. If it looks as good and works as well as DLSS 2.0, anyway. It could bring visual parity between the two systems, just one native 4k and the other up scaled... Which would make the series s really impressive for the size. I wonder if...

    Snoop couldn't get a 3080 Ti

    I have never seen this clip before, but I sorta figured it had to be something like that. There's no way a celebrity worth $150M is camping newegg to snag a GPU. I don't know anything about him, but even if he is into PC gaming, enough so to be building / upgrading his own PCs, I'd assume he'd...

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    At this point, they should just remove them for all cards. The queues have to be a solid year long at current production rates.

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    How feasible is this though, really? We're not talking Best Buy or Newegg here. Evga is a component manufacturer who happens to do direct sales, not a major retailer. From a business standpoint, it would be incredibly foolish to ramp up server capacity for a half dozen product launches a year...

    3080 Ti EVGA Notify Queue

    The card was announced 2 days ago. They can't open up a queue for a product that isn't officially announced. Hell, even opening a queue for a non-descript "future GPU launch" would probably violate some sort of agreement with Nvidia, given that they do not allow pre-orders (which is likely why...

    EVGA is giving 24 hour priority queue access to Elite members

    So the people spamming the forums to get to 100 posts get it... But people who became elite members by buying Evga products do not? Well played, Evga.

    Valve Steam Pal

    There's no way Nintendo would agree to this. There are plenty of titles on both Steam and Switch. I know plenty of people who double dip just to play games thye already own on the go. Switch users being able to play Steam games would absolutely cut into their sales.

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition

    I almost did the same, but my backlog is massive. I just restarted the entire Kingdom Hearts franchise and when thats over, I'm still only part way through cyberpunk, control, Valhalla, and immortals. I figure I'll just wait for it to hit game pass.

    Epic Games Store

    My stance has long been that they are competing the only way they can. They can't compete by way of cheaper prices because they dont control the prices. Publishers and developers do, and they wouldn't allow their products to be sold cheaper on epic because that devalues their games. It's the...

    Epic Games Store

    Sony is a lot more reserved with what they bring to PC. So far we have HZD and Days Gone (both of which are on Steam). I don't think Sony wants to support PC where they don't have to. HZD sold well but it's still a budding franchise. My guess is that forbidden west will not come to PC, and Sony...
