I've farted around with the pre-release stuff a bit and to be honest this feels way too much like a Baldur's Gate mod for D:OSII. I don't mind the change of pace but it has a lot of Larian jank to it and not in a good way. I don't know, I really wanted to love it but was pretty lukewarm overall, it just feels off. I will give the final game a chance when it's on sale.

And IMO, DOSII was quite the overrated game. You slog along with the unbalanced grind and crap RNG. I had to force my way to play it through because it wasn't very enjoyable.

If I can't even get a security update without glaring new bugs, can you imagine what Windows 11 will bring? ðŸ˜Ū

Just like how they derogated from Windows development, then recanted on that statement and reassured everyone that they were "all in". 😁

On a side note, their latest patch (June 8) broke my system tray icons. Install at your own risk. I had to uninstall the specific KB. They added this annoyingly new sys tray icon that pops up fake news, and then when clicked on, opens Edge (even if it's not your default browser). The problem is when you disable the new fake news icon and then reboot. Way to go, Microsoft!

Ashes of Creation is going to destroy New World (I believe they're coming out at roughly the same time). Poor Amazon, they just can't catch a break ðŸĪŠ

Just started the Gamers Nexus review.
In the first 4 minute he reiterates what an offensive launch the 3080ti was while being a blatant moneygrab.

Edit
Skipped to the end;
The performance increase is functionally irrelevant and it's very unlikely that you'll notice the increased frame rates.
The 3070 TI is not worth purchasing
(Unless you're scalping.)

Performance increase over what? A 2070, 2080?

Umm, the 3070?

I don't know, I watched the reveal myself. Then I read a press release article about some of the finer points. I'm not HYPED myself and I know better then to Day one purchase a Dice product anymore. But I will keep an eye on it, as mentioned the 128 player limit has me intrigued.

But I feel the game lacks character. If you watch it you cannot even tell who's who. Its literally Army guys shooting army guys. During the previous BF's your army sides had character, a reason Army A is shooting Army B. I guess it doesn't matter in the end It just devolves into Grey'ish Army guy's vs Green'ish Army Guy's, anyway I'm thinking too much about it.

I will go with the working title. Battlefield: Slightly Futuristic Generic Warfare.

That's one of the reasons why I don't play games like this anymore. I always end up shooting my teammates because I can't tell who's who based on the subtleties of the uniform. I remember playing an older Battlefield game that had this issue, and I just got totally frustrated so all I did was fly vehicles around haha

I always have to question games that are described as an "exploration game". Is it a technical feat/experiment or is there actual fun gameplay somewhere to be found? Anyhow, you've got to hand it to the devs for all the updates since release. I've heard that the co-op mode is a bit clunky, and in some aspects it doesn't make much sense, so if they ever straighten that out, I might give it a try

It reminds me of those concept car showcases, where you see all these amazing, futuristic vehicles that you know the manufacturer will never release to the public. Look at this really cool thing that we've designed that you will never be able to purchase

It's not a triple A game. It has a great base but it's pretty obvious that the talent was taken to other projects and covid issues affected it.

Since when is Ubisoft Canada not a triple-A game dev? They were the devs on Far Cry 5

I'll typically purchase directly from uplay unless I find a deal somewhere else. Ubisoft hasn't used steam for a few years now

When I started my own business 10+ years ago, I "forced" myself to grow out of Office. Saw from miles away that MS (another software company) doesn't want their customers to buy their software. They want customer to pay them EVERY YEAR.

I did the exact same thing with greedy Adobe and their ridiculously overpriced subscription. I use Affinity Photo instead of Photoshop and Davinci Resolve instead of Premiere Pro. Both are really good applications and way more stable than Adobe's crap

Oh man, that recommendation may have just brightened one of my customers day. Thanks.
Oh yeah, forgot to mention that I don't really care who wins
It won't affect the average joe one way or the other.

Yeah, iMazing is easy to use/understand and not convoluted like iTunes. Even the newer integrated device management rather sucks in macOS, that's why I switched to using iMazing. I believe they have it for macOS as well

I'm admittingly an Apple fanboy. I've made a pretty penny through them (I was a macOS/iOS dev for a long time). I've used iPhone since its inception, and have been using macbook pro as my main dev machine for 10+ years. There's nothing out there that can sway me.

I wasn't a big fan of iTunes either. I only used it to backup/sync, but even doing that was a pretty sucky experience (didn't they fire the iTunes team?). Anyhow, I actually use iMazing for Windows to manage my iPhone backups. It's nice to have the best of both worlds 😀

"Windows 10 gets a speedy new package manager"

There will be no security issues there. No, not at all. Windows is pretty solid when it comes to viruses and malware
