I went a different route. I have two 256GB SSD for my boot drives (one for Windows, one for Linux)and swap. On Linux, my /home actually resides on a NAS share. On Windows, my gaming "drive" is a network drive mapped to a different share on the NAS. I have zero performance problems with this setup. I don't see the point in having a spinning rust disk in the system when I can point everything that I want to keep on the NAS and have it remain stateful through multiple iterations of machines.

I watched 5 games go past and they were all shitty, low-rent titles that had mostly negative reviews.

On a side note, I can't believe how bad the commentary is for F1 in the US. It's embarrassing. It consists almost entirely of long pauses and painfully obvious statements - the amount of dead air is bizarre.

It's Leigh Fucking Diffy that's the problem. When Bob Varsha covered it with Hobbes and Matchett on Speed, it was a far better broadcast.

Diffy is an ignorant fuckstick whose best claim to fame is that he is a "never was" in also-ran team from V8 Super Cars in Australia. Hell, we don't even really get Sam Posey anymore doing voiceovers.

We just watch Sky's coverage now because at least those cats are funny and natural in comparison.

I'm just hoping Cyberpunk is a better game than Satellite Reign was. For a game that hyped itself as a spiritual successor to the Syndicate series, it was a massive letdown.

Forget basketball. The F1 season kicks off on Sunday with the season opener in Melbourne with the Australian Grand Prix!

The US has representation for the first time in decades with the Haas F1 team.

Their stuff looks pretty sweet though. Anyone use it?

Yes, and I enjoy their wheels and pedals very, very much. They work quite well in my cockpit setup.

Anyone use it with ETS2 or ATS?

No.

Color me impressed. I agree that the graphics need some serious work, though.

I'm sure if someone created "Taking a Shit Simulator" that it would have "roguelike" in its description. Utterly useless and wildly overused nonsense.

Yeah, after Rome 2...I think I am going to give this one a wide berth. Shogun 2 didn't exactly wash the taste of it out of my mouth.

Great QA work from Nvidia. I'm glad I didn't "upgrade" my drivers.

That's prudent.

is it prudent?

Not gonna do it. Wouldn't be prudent!

Hmmmm...with the exception of heroin, the posts gushing about this game have very low post counts.

I'm not a suspicious person by nature but I'm less than convinced.

As I have said since this was revealed to the public, this game is going to be shallow, boring, grueling and ultimately pointless. Ultra huge galaxies with "content generation" that are interesting and fully fleshed out won't become a thing until we have 10Thz quantum processors, 512YB (Yes, yottabytes) of multiplanar RAM, Video cards that can render the world as we see it at 2000FPS with no tearing at all, and storage devices the size of rice grains that hold zetabytes of information. Hell, the world is just that complex to simulate in full, real time detail let alone galaxies teeming with billions of stars and trillions of worlds. Each unique unto itself.

This game is a joke. "Look, you discovered a plant! You can name it! Look, you discovered another plant that looks almost exactly like the last plant you just discovered except it's a different color. Isn't this exciting? Isn't this revolutionary?"

Pathetic.

Step 1: Blow the dust out of the wheezing 486 mini tower that hosts Uplay so three people instead of two can connect to authenticate the game.

Thought it said "Dragon" and got all excited someone was remaking the old Dynamix title...


Yeah, I think I'd actually rather play a Rise of the Dragon remake. Kinda burned out on dungeon crawlers at the moment after both LoGs and another game whose name escapes me currently.

SO anyone try it? Is it any good? Is the content there or should people wait a bit before buying in?

I own it. I really like it though there is room for improvement and not an insignificant amount. I was talking about it with some friends over poker last Saturday night and all of us are old MOO players, back to the original (Hell, three of us know or knew Steve Barcia and Ken Burd). We all agree that while it is an enjoyable game, it is not yet fantastic. The races are unbalanced, the tech tree has taken an either/or path in some instances (instead of inclusive as it used to be), and the AI is pretty boneheaded at the moment.
