    Mass Effect Legendary Edition

    Seems to have started working now. The main menu wasn't responding to the mouse position (or any keys) and if I clicked it just minimised the game. Maybe it was doing some sort of online nonsense and the servers were busy. It hasn't downloaded an update or anything. Edit: or maybe not, now I get...

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition

    I can't even get past the main menu for ME1, so that's a good start. Oh well, I should technically be working anyway.

    NEWS: During an internal Q&A with CD Projekt management on Thursday, frustrated Cyberpunk developers asked blunt questions about the game's rocky....

    You could write a very similar list to that for most AAA releases. I always remember Bethesda's bs about how smart their Oblivion AI was going to be. Or the advanced faction system in Far Cry 2. I'm glad I purposely steered clear of the hype and can evaluate it solely on what was delivered (on...

    Will the 5900X or 5800X be your next gaming CPU?

    If there turns out to be a reasonable real world advantage to the 5900 over the 3900 for my typical usage, and if it works on my mb, and if AMD avoids the whole 3080 release fiasco, then I'll probably go for one.

    You guys SURE you want Evga cards?

    EVGA should include googly eyes in a little accessory bag.

    Star Wars: Squadrons

    Played the first couple of missions on the Index and enjoyed it a lot. There's a VR toggle button, and then it all just worked without an issue. The default control bindings for my x52 (and other hotas users from what I've read) are a complete shitshow. Almost got them sorted out, but there...

    Nvidia rtx 3090 discussion

    It'll be interesting to see what happens with 3080 super / ti / whatever, because it doesn't seem like there's much room to squeeze it in under the 3090.

    Epic paid $10.5 million upfront for Control exclusivity

    Yeah, if companies like Ubisoft get their way and turn PC gaming into Stadia-style closed streaming rental platforms, we'll be looking back at Steam vs EGS as being the golden years. I have no real issues with EGS. I find it much more pleasant to use than the bloated, ugly shitware that Steam...

    Microsoft returning to Flight Simulator in 2020

    I could only dream of those luxurious 16 colour graphics back when I was playing it in CGA. That is true of everything that will ever be released.

    Star Citizen's single player game delayed again

    In general, sure, but as was pointed out the main thing preventing Roberts from having any motivation at all to get the damn thing done is the fact that people continue to piss money away on marketing jpegs. As someone who backed (modestly) in 2012, and not since, I consider those people to be a...

    NVIDIA: Cyberpunk 2077 Will Ship With RTX Raytracing

    I'm sure it will look nice, but I'd also expect it to have a similar performance-crushing effect as hairworks did in The Witcher 3.

    Cyberpunk 2077 — Official E3 2019 Cinematic Trailer

    No CE for the PC in the US? That's disappointing.

    GOG Galaxy 2.0 will allow users to add games from multiple platforms to their profile

    The thing about Galaxy is that since it's not a DRM manager there's not a whole lot of reason to even open it. I'll check it occasionally in case a game needs to be updated, or to see if some new release is on there because I'd prefer to buy it from them if possible (although it's rare for big...

    Epic Games Store

    Which just goes to show how fucked the whole business is. I might have pre-ordered Vampire: The Masquerade 2 in the sale, which would have cost Paradox nothing since the discount is subsidised by Epic. Now, I'll wait for reviews and not buy it at all if it sucks, and even if it doesn't I'll wait...

    Valve Index

    Not impressed by the headset, but I'll probably pick up the controllers. Of the current HMD options I'd rather go with a pimax (or an xtal if I had money to burn).
