    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    I mean, they fixed a lot of bugs, but they didn't put back in all of the shit they lied about and removed from the game content-wise before launch.

    Do you think we'll see PC focused, groundbreaking games ever again?

    I was expecting another fucking Chinese MMO, but it looks like this is actually a single player game, which is cool.

    Ubiquiti AmpliFi Alien WiFi Router $279 for Black Friday

    So just buy something like an EdgeRouter and get an access point(s). I went that route years ago and never looked back.

    Far Cry 6

    For me the game stutters ever so briefly every time I pick up an item, it's weird.

    Rockstar's most recent update to the Steam version of L.A. Noire added online-only DRM.

    Rockstar made the choice to release that pile of crap. Rockstar made the decision to remove the existing versions.

    Microsoft is discontinuing Backwards Compatibility for Xbox

    I think they tried to use some AI algorithm or something and it sucked, bad. You get nonsensical shit like this:

    Bright Memory: Infinite

    Seems fine for me with DLSS Quality @ 1440p. Without DLSS it chugs quite a bit.

    Rockstar's most recent update to the Steam version of L.A. Noire added online-only DRM.

    After the GTA "remasters" I don't think I'll be giving Rockstar any more money any time soon. All they care about is Shark Card bullshit now.

    Far Cry 6

    I don't know about that, I had zero issues with Control maxed out at 1440p on my machine.

    Bright Memory: Infinite

    Hard Reset was pretty good, that is a decent enough recommendation to check it out. I think I bought the previous game super cheap so I get this one free.

    Far Cry 6

    Because their hardware can't handle it, it's not a question of optimization, I think they just simply don't have the horsepower to do it.

    Far Cry 6

    I finished this yesterday, the ending was pretty anti-climactic but overall it was an okay game. Now we get into the LiVe sErViCe crap with the weekly insurgencies. Good way to earn Moneda, I guess, but also why does the game need three currencies (four if you count uranium) in the first place?

    Forza Horizon 5 (Mexico)

    You know, I loved FH4 but honestly I don't see much of a reason to buy this. I might try it since I still have Game Pass until January, but all of the wheelspins and random crap just did not appeal to me. I also hated the exclusive cars that you could only get in some random event and then...

    At least they acknowledged they fucked up. I still really want to play this game and I hope it's good.

    Popular game franchises you've never played.

    The only RTS games I really liked outside of Warcraft (didn't even really get into Starcraft) was the Total Annihilation series, and C&C Generals.

    Scorn

    Okay, but this: Sure, that is accurate, but it's also sort of a dick response - people crowdfunded this game and the complete lack of communication is not acceptable for ANY crowdfunding venture. None of that has anything to do with English not being the primary language - it was pretty clear...

    Popular game franchises you've never played.

    Not sure if it's considered the same franchise, but World of Warcraft. I have played Warcraft 1-3, though. Realized I already posted this earlier, lol. There aren't many that I've never played period, but several that I have very limited experience with and maybe played part of one of the...

    Far Cry 6

    It did seem kind of random that it showed up all of a sudden, and the mission itself wasn't super fleshed out. It seemed more like an advertisement for Trejo's Tacos than anything, but it did amuse me.

    Beware of EVGA GPU's selling for "good prices"

    Can they give a serial number range or something? How is anyone supposed to know if you are buying one of these cards?

    Yeah, I typically just airdrop in basically anywhere I need to go. Way faster.

    Far Cry 6

    I dunno, I barely got it out of the garage when I got attacked by a soldier who blew it up almost immediately. It did have that cool minigun, though. I was hoping it would be able to be spawned later but I didn't see it available.

    Far Cry 6

    Yeah, I was hoping for a special campfire recipe or something. Also, his cool bike exploded almost immediately and it wouldn't let me scan it. :\

    Far Cry 6

    Lol, I just defended Danny Trejo while he makes tacos and the Yaran government tries to steal them.

    Far Cry 6

    I think I'm probably going skip most of the side activities to try to get through the last missions and finish up. Honestly, getting kind of bored of the game. I realized too that I never even used like 90% of the weapons in the game because they were just objectively worse.

    When Is Your Steam Deck Due? POLL

    I put in a reservation for the 512 model a few weeks ago - not sure if I'll still even want it by the time the reservation comes up. "After Q2 2022"

    Nintendo Switch

    I see that they have the Genesis one as well. They could have at least done the 6-button instead of the original controller.

    Metroid Dread

    I was using a Pro controller the whole time, so it wasn't that, though I do struggle a bit with the controls and keeping all of the shoulder buttons straight. They certainly do utilize pretty much every button on there.

    Halo Infinite

    True, but I wasn't buying an Xbox just for it. Other than maybe the physics, I am not sure it did much over other PC titles at the time, ultimately. My experience with it is playing Halo 1 and 2 a bit in college dorms, but not much beyond that.

    Secret Ports on Gamecube

    The digital output was component IIRC - I didn't have one of the digital out versions, but I remember looking it up. They are apparently incredibly expensive on eBay now, like $350.

    Halo Infinite

    I guess I'm 5) people who were excited for the game but got pissed off when they cancelled it for PC/Mac and made it Xbox exclusive, and then stopped caring about it.

    Jesus, the camera shake hurts my eyes. I hope the actual game isn't like that all the time.

    Creative Super X-Fi Headphone Amplifier - $60 - AVSForum Best of Cedia 2018

    I find that, annoyingly, most post-processing effects make the sound more "tinny" in general, but it's sort of a necessary evil in my experience.

    Metroid Dread

    There is a lot of trial and error in the boss fights, which can be frustrating because a lot of the time it will start you a little ways back from where the boss room is when you die. The final boss is the worst with that elevator ride every time. I still haven't gone back and beaten the final...

    That's totally fair, I didn't think about that.

    Far Cry 6

    I get the complaint, I guess, but I find it amusing if anything. I think the "outrage" over this is overblown. That said, I have never gotten an email from Ubisoft about this so I guess I have that stuff turned off. I have seen screenshots of other emails with Castillo taunting you as well -...

    Far Cry 6

    Yeah, I can only speak to what the game is telling me, which is that it should only be using roughly 6 GB of VRAM at my chosen settings, but I get a constant "Low VRAM" notice in the corner with HD textures enabled. I agree it seems like a bug or some issue they need to work out.
  39. MavericK

    Far Cry 6

    They certainly didn't fix the HD textures issue. Why is it that when you enable HD textures, it shows a bump of like maybe 1 GB of VRAM usage in the menu, but in game I constantly get a "low VRAM" warning at the upper-right and the textures look like shit? What a poorly-coded system. Also, if...

    Far Cry 6

    Out of those apps the only thing I might have running is Discord, which really shouldn't be an issue since it's a piece of software designed to be used with voice chat for gaming. I've only had like one other map crash since the first one, thankfully.
