Yeah, I'm a little annoyed they are making this 1280x780 (or 800, it's unclear) instead of 1920x1080 at the very least. That's going to make a lot of games look terrible right off the bat, let alone how small the screen is... my eyes may be too old for handhelds now.

I’m assuming that 1080p is more than the current APU can handle if you’re targeting 60 fps and a reasonable battery life. It will be interesting to see what it can do in docked mode, especially with FidelityFX.

I regret my purchase. My sense of nostalgia gets the better of me and I actually think these developers care as much as the fans do. I should have learned my lesson with Warcraft 3 Reforged.

I’m so used to most people being in my general age range here that it actually surprises me when someone isn’t familiar with some of these older game franchises.

Really, you never played Age of Empires? It’s only 24 years old. Beam

Looks like they just added some tesselation to the models to make things rounder. I don't see any new data, except maybe on the main characters. Textures also looked like they were uprezzed. Probably ran them through one of those AI filters. Either way, looks like a pretty lazy upgrade, and no where even close to GTA 5, which is already 8 years old.

Who said that the graphics would be close to GTA 5? I know some were expecting more but did you think Rockstar was going to invest years of work and tons of $$$ into new remakes?
They're pretty much swimming in money, so... Yes

Agreed, but that doesn’t mean they’re willing to throw huge amounts of cash at this. I think the lack of significant improvements shows what their sales expectations are. If they thought they could make as much money as their top tier games, the project would have been much more ambitious.

I’m not okay with this. If it was just a list of facts or questions and answers that would be useful for reviewers, I wouldn’t have a problem. But it comes across as follow these guidelines or risk losing access to future review copies.

I know that ethics problems in game journalism are nothing new. But expecting reviewers to include marketing’s talking points crosses the line.

Boooo! Give us a modern remake of the vastly more fun GTA1 and/or 2 - with co-op.

I'd love to see proper remakes of GTA 1, 2, and London. All were great games that were pretty much forgotten about, at least compared to their successors.

Preload is only good for those with shit internet.

And since the Steam Deck is a portable system, shit internet is a problem that most will eventually run into. Being able to play while downloading will be very useful. I wish the Switch had that feature.

Sorry, forevermore, can't avoid associating him with that magnificiently unpolished turd and nearly pushing Eidos out of business.

Yes, John made a lot of mistakes with Ion Storm. No, he doesn't want to make you his bitch anymore.

Why do people still hold a grudge? It's been twenty one years now. Time to move past it.

I wish Steam would eventually require all new games to the store be Linux compatible.

I feel eventually we'll have to move away from the Windows platform as it becomes more and more Console'ish/Apple'ish/Closed Garden crap.

I don't want to be stuck on a shitty platform 10 or 20 years from now just because most games aren't Linux compatible.

This is one of the reasons why Valve has been putting so much effort into improving Proton. They realized that they were never going to convince most developers to support Linux. So they went all in on a Windows compatibility layer. The results have been so good that it's turned the Linux gaming scene upside down.

There's a number of games now including Civ VI where the Windows version with Proton runs better than the native Linux port.

Just to point out if it is not obvious for everyone. It runs Steam OS, aka Linux. While there are a lot of games that work on SteamOS/Linux now, it is far from all. Lucky if it is 1/5th of games on Steam.
It will run Windows too. You just have to install it.

Proton has improved significantly over the past year. There’s very few Windows games in my Steam library that I can’t play on Arch Linux.

It’s nice that Windows will be supported but you won’t need it.

Isn't this basically par for the course when it comes to EA Sports titles on PC?

I can’t speak for FIFA but that’s definitely the case for Madden. They treat the PC like a second class citizen and then wonder why no one buys the game. It’s the same problem that led to the cancellation of the PC title the first time. Why did they even bother bringing it back?

Actually one of the games I wouldn't mind having a BR mode in.

They probably don’t want to muddy the waters and compete with Apex Legends. I never liked BR much anyway so this is a plus for me.
