It's one of those games, I never purchased because I wasn't sure if I would like it. Now that I have played it (just 20 minutes or so), it definitely has potential. If my interest doesn't fade quickly, then I'll get this game on GoG too, in order to have a DRM-free copy.

Epic store's free game deals are quite amazing.

Awesome development. I'll buy this for sure today. I am glad, I didn't buy it on Steam.

I bought a new graphic card very recently - about 4-5 weeks back. My existing card broke in an HTPC on a 4K TV where we often play games and in HDR if we can. It was an old RX 470 card. I initially thought about waiting to see what the new offerings are, but most news articles pointed to both AMD and nVidia coming out with at least $500-600+ GPUs first. I eventually found a Radeon 5700 for $300, and it's a fantastic card.

Once that performance level is surpassed with good margin at $300-350, I may consider the new option.

She had friends who witnessed the attack and helped her in piecing up what happened. Then there's the nonsensical tweet exchange. Not sure why WaltC is getting so offended by these reports.

I feel sad when reading these things come to light. I was always a big fan of Chris Avellone, but yes few years away from industry will probably do good for him. Hope he turns his life around.

This looks interesting. It can serve as a perfect PC for running Kodi for a 4K Television, especially if you have a Plex server or WMC server (hosting old WMC recorded files). It should be able to handle simple PC action games (put a bluetooth dongle, and connect multiple PlayStation or XBox controllers), play Youtube videos and other gaming HTPC tasks.

The latest findings are they suspect a metric shit ton more people are/have been infected than first suspected which really brings the contagion and mortality factor in line with regular flu strains. Plus the mortality factor has now been shown to be over 80% of people with at least 2 pre-existing chronic health problems - and even then that's generally in the 80+ age group.

In past two or three weeks, Covid-19 has officially been the second biggest killer in US, just shy of heart-attack related deaths. It has killed more than accidents (all sorts), flu (even when you combine past two or three seasons), and most other mortality factors - and all of them combined.

That's when majority of country is in shelter-in-place. It's absolutely nothing like flu, going by the death rate in quarantined population.

Keep in mind that these are just official numbers, and the real death-rate may be higher, as all regions with Covid-19 hotspots around the world are reporting excess deaths (when compared to the same time period in past few years).

Great video. This game and Wing Commander both came around the same time for DOS PCs, and completely obliterated what the expectations were for action games at the time.

Thanks for posting the video link.

I recently bought my first game on Epic Store - Control from Remedy. It's an excellent game, and was under sale. Also I was feeling, that I had to give Epic Store some cash, after getting tons of games for free. Celeste was one of those free game, and what an amazing game it is.

Anyway, Epic Store is great (as great as a DRM solution can be), and for now I far prefer it over Steam.

Microsoft Store, which is often kicked around for fun, isn't bad either. It's biggest advantage is that once you get a game from any account, the local installation on a PC can be shared perfectly between multiple accounts. I have Forza Horizon 4 installed on a PC using my Microsoft and my two sons with their own kids account can play the game separately under separate profiles, with cloud saves, online components, achievements etc. I don't think any other online store DRM platform allows this.

And while I have gone completely off course here, let me also mention for those of you signing with XboxGamePass, definitely try Forza Horizon 4 and its DLCs - maybe the best driving game ever on PC.

Fry's had low stocks and hardly any good sales (or even proper ad/promo campaigns) during the last Black Friday and holiday period. I thought at the time, that they might not stick around for long.

Both are awesome games. Epic store continues to offer great free games. Nice to see another alternative digital store to Steam.

I'll wait until the game comes on other store fronts, ideally GoG (in some years). Steam remains the least friendly option when running a purchased game on different PCs in a household.

Highly recommend watching the Spider-Man : Into the spider-verse movie. I loved Wreck it Ralph 2, and Incredibles 2, but I'd say Spiderman was the best animated movie this year (and past few years too for that matter)

Correct me if i'm wrong but isn't the new HDMI versions have that Free-Sync/G-Sync built into it?

HDMI 2.1 VRR (variable refresh rate) is based on VESA DisplayPort Adaptive Sync standard, which is what AMD was proposing from the beginning as Freesync.

GSync is a proprietary protocol, not supported by any industry standard. NVidia dragged their feet, until they had no choice but to support the display-port and HDMI standards regarding variable refresh rate.

I am happy for both Obsidian and inXile, as this will bring stability at least in near term. I have heard recent Phil Spencer (MS head of game studios and Xbox) talks on these acquisitions, and he has always come off as someone who understands the creative freedom that these gaming studios need. As far as game creation goes, both these companies will undoubtedly be in better shape.

However, I find it very unlikely that the two studios will keep on releasing games on DRM-free platforms like GoG. For me, this is the biggest drawback. Both these companies have been a reliable source of games coming out on GoG. MS also acquired Ninja Theory (Hellblade) and the developers of We Happy Few, and both of those games were day 1 releases on GoG.

So, Pillars of Eternity 2, and Tyranny probably will remain the last Obsidian games that I'll buy for many years. My only hope is that MS will allow their future games to be published on GoG, after some years, just like Bethesda has released FO3, FO:NV and all Elder Scrolls except Skyrim on GoG.

I ran into this issue yesterday, and spent two hours on phone with Microsoft support. I didn't know about this activation server glitch, and apparently neither did the support people.

After failing to activate my Windows 8.1 keys multiple times, the issue got escalated, and then in the end the tier-2 or tier-3 support generated a new Win10 Pro key for me, and even that didn't activate correctly. They gave up, and set up another diagnostic session couple of weeks for now.

Half an hour later, I saw that the new key was activated. Lots of wasted time, but I did get a new Win10Pro key.

By the way, once the Windows installation goes out of activation, immediate action isn't needed, since it continues to perform as before for the most part.

Looks interesting. It appears to be a modern version of Sid Meier's Covert Action, with the difference being that tactical infiltration part is turn based instead of real time.

How about the game just tries really hard to be fun and people play it for that reason?

The game really is fun (both star-battles and first-person shooter portions), and can be played just for that reason alone.

The game has awesome potential. Graphics are great and the overall oppressive atmosphere and muted color palette are somewhat like STALKER's. The basic gameplay sounds promising too, as it mixes both PvE and PvP in the same mission. You play in teams of two, to find, hunt and defeat a single demon in a boss fight. The team which banishes the monster, gets a trophy and then has to escape the level, while other teams are hunting them. Teams can engage in combat any time, but may tactically wait until others get through boss-fight and then jump on their bounty.

The setting is very unique, especially for a Crytek shooter. I'd rank it as one of the most interesting PC games coming out this year. Here's a YouTube trailer
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nH9Gm36sJng

For the record, I have never played PUBG, Destiny or Fortnite, and have only 5-8 hours in Overwatch (which I got recently for $20). I don't care much for multiplayer only games, but the basic gameplay loop in Hunt:Showdown sounds great.

I picked up the game from Amazon today. It's available for $25. Prey is also there for $20.
