It'd be pretty cool if it works with preloads, because today: Decrypt preload files = 1 hour. Skip preload and download at launch = 20 minutes. Preload is a joke.

You're not alone, I like Dishonored, but I didn't beat either of em, probably didn't do 50%. Prey I finished just so I could write a scathing review for that bastardization of one of the most beloved IP's in classic FPS gaming history.
But Deathloop, doesn't do anything for me. I get little joy out of killing bots in an FPS game :/
All you have to do is look at the comments on Steam, hoards of players denouncing the game because of the horrid copy protection scheme.

Wonder what chat clients it has nowadays since a chunk of those companies don't exist anymore, and companies remove access to their API etc.Solemn-Philosopher wrote on Sep 15, 2021, 22:34:One of the best software purchases I ever made. At one point while I was still working, we had people in AIM, IRC, ICQ, Yahoo Messaging, GoogleChat, Hipchat, and I think there was something else I'm forgetting. Trillian let me do all of that in a single window. That software freaking ROCKS. Checked a couple of months ago, my "lifetime license" is still good -- bought it in 2010.
Trillian? Now that's a name I haven't heard in a long, long time...
VaranDragon wrote on Sep 1, 2021, 02:22:You are lucky. Something an oculus upgrade did completely killed VR on my machine, and I've been restricted to onboard quest games since then. I've tried reinstalling drivers and oculus so many times. It's something software, because I installed windows to an external drive as a separate install and it works again, I was desperate enough to do that to play Half Life Alyx.
I've had to tinker for 3 months with my Windows 10 Rig to get VR to run properly, with no hitching, and as few slowdowns as possible. And this is with an RTX3090 (Until you've tried VR, you don't know the meaning of FPS stability).
I can't wait to see how Windows 11 will fuck all of that up....yeah, unless I see benchmarks of Windows 11 performance > Windows 10 performance (direct comparisons mind you) in games and VR, I'm not switching.

General MS and Windows complaints aside, I am really looking forward to Auto HDR.
Gadzooks wrote on Aug 31, 2021, 14:58:There are ways to get them. Like getting in line at evga (It will take a while though). Or Best Buy has had two recent things in last few months where they ship a chunk to every store and sell as MSRP on a certain day they announce. You do have to camp out overnight to get those, but if you want it enough...
Ive had the money to upgrade to a 3080 since it was launched, (900ish), but well, its not like you can find them, and when you do, they are a LOT more than just 900.
VaranDragon wrote on Sep 1, 2021, 02:35:They would have never done that because they were trying to avoid spoilers. Probably they should have though. Or had some rounds of closed beta testing with outside people.
CP2077 is a great game. Unfortunately it was released unfinished. If it was released to early access first, all of these arguments about how "shitty" and "broken" it was would be moot.
VaranDragon wrote on Aug 30, 2021, 09:46:Everyone has different tastes. I'm not assuming your tastes match the average reviewer mindset. But I'm also not assuming it's a turd either.
Yeah, thanks for pointing that out. I mean if everyone likes it, it must be fucking awesome! /s
What do you wan't to bet that 90% of those reviewers play the game for about 5-10h and then never fire it up again.
VaranDragon wrote on Aug 30, 2021, 08:54:Rated very positive 85% on steam, so it apparently isn't that big of a turd.
Aliens Fireteam is no 2. on the list? Just goes to show that you can slap the Aliens licence on any old turd, and people will lap it up and ask for more.
heroin wrote on Aug 26, 2021, 19:40:The application maybe. But once you do, the games themselves can be installed anywhere. Under settings, then general, you can even tell it to ask you every install.
I tried that, signed up for $1, but Xbox Gamepass needs you to install on the C:, can't change the drive.
I keep all my games on external SSDs....
You can change it but you have to do all sorts of shit. I spent the $60 and glad I did, they deserve it.
