News Comments > Steam Top 10

I ordered a steam controller through steam and it went all the way through, but I never got the confirmation email. So I hope it really did go through.

I'm disappointed Valve did not put a sale on the Index, but since they are selling so well due to HLA, I guess they don't feel the need. I would have ordered one if they did. Now I don't know. I'm sure the Oculus CV1 I have will be fine with HLA, but I want the full-fat experience with the much better visual quality the Index has over the CV1.

How I choose to play a game is of no concern to the developers.

That's only true for an open world game. Otherwise, it IS the concern of the developers how they want the game and story to unfold/be played. You either like it or not.

I'm so glad I decided to wait for a larger sale on Rage 2 a while back. They had it 50% off during QuakeCon and I almost got it, but decided to wait for a 75% off sale, or similar. Then here recently it was again 50% off and I held off again.

If Google Stadia wasn't already doomed on its own (and it was), xCloud just shot it in the head point blank. Especially once this goes beyond Windows.

Not kidding, whenever I read the words "youtube" and "redesign" in a news post I am getting REALLY scared. Not a single re-design youtube did in the past 10 years was ever an improvement, dark mode excluded.


Yep, they have an excellent track record of boning things up real good.

Not a huge fan of the new look TBH. At first I thought there was something wrong with the web server. The categories on the left are too wide so there's all this extra space and the text for the news stories is too big. It makes the site have a zoomed-in look where I can't see as much on screen so I have to scroll a lot more.

Now I'm not saying it's terrible though. It's still got that classic 90s look to it which I like. What I do find terrible is most modern web page design so this site sticking with a more old-school internet look is awesome to me.

But maybe things look too big and zoomed in b/c I'm still at 1080p. I would suspect that 1440p or 4K users probably see things differently, depending on their scaling settings.

The more like 2 and less like 3, the better for me.

Although currently I'm not touching anything from Activision with a 10-foot pole. So likely I'll be skipping this one. Which, honestly is OK because no Diablo will ever match or top Diablo 2 for me. The ways of modern games prevents this.

I've always liked bowling games, even though I've never played very many. I was planning on getting this for the Switch, but probably when it goes on sale.

Another thing nice about GamePass is that if you want to own the game, you can get it at a discount as a GP member.

Man....F Blizzard. They'd rather have that commie Chinese money than for a group of good people to be free. I hope BlizzCon is a total dumpster fire and I will never spend another dollar with Blizzard or Activision. Developers who work there that are against this needs to jump ship, and fast.

I'll believe this when I see it, given Activision and all.

Looks like archive.org no longer has the exodos collection. If you like DOS games, that's the (HUGE) collection to look for. But still buy the games on GoG in addition to support them, which is what I do.

The last MS Flightsim I bought was v4.0 around 1990. After 30 years of virtually no interest, I think I'm all in on this one. Seriously looks like a massive step forward from every other flight sim out there.


Flight Sim 5.0 was a pretty massive jump from 4.0. 5.0 is the first one I bought and it has always stayed as my favorite, or at least close to the top. Even though later versions got even more detailed and better in every way, there's still something about version 5 that I really like.

I recently bought a new sealed copy of 4.0 on ebay. It says it's from 1989 and is on 5.25" floppies. I hope my only 5.25" drive I have left still works. While I do have other methods to get it on that old machine, I like doing it the "right" way.

I don't understand why this wasn't obvious since the start of the project. OF COURSE a flight sim needs VR. There's a piece of software that lets you use VR with Flight Sim X and it's amazing how much more real it feels to be sitting in the cockpit and looking around naturally with your head. Sims are a perfect fit for VR.
