I'm old, born 1980.

I do remember back in the days when often the discussion with friends would steer too "wouldn't be amazing if it was multiplayer?".
It often involved great single player games.

I do also remember the hassle to put together a lan back then, with the coaxial before the rj45 was a thing.

Today I often watch this games and wonder how good they would be if they were ment for single player from the ground up.

I remember setting up a home network for my family on coaxial... So we could all share an Internet connection... On Dialup...

I have 30 items on the Steam Wishlist that I'm not willing to pick up at the current price, so maybe I can trim that down a bit next month... Though, given the last XX years of sales, that's no longer anywhere near a guarantee ; )

Woowoo Beat Saber! Always nice to see a VR game get in the top sellers list.

Indeed

For those curious It's a hardcore workout if you get into it.

This is a great game... EA title, hopefully with more content (10 songs atm) coming, and very few (but non-impacting) bugs...

My only complaint is that, being 6'3", the parts where you have to duck are too damn low... My daughter barely has to duck : )

I'm now at a point where the 'Hard' setting for almost all songs is a bit too easy, but the 'Expert' settings are still too hard/fast... I'll keep doing it daily on Hard for a while though : )

Are Souls games considerably better with a controller? Yes, very much so...

Are they playable after some adjustment with a mouse/keyboard? Yes, very much so...

Do some people play through them with a set of drums, or some other non-standard controllers (Bananas, rock band guitars, etc)? Yes, and it's some pretty weird shit to watch...

But the games aren't for everyone, regardless of input type ; )

~5 weeks earlier than their previously released 'on or before' date... : )

Also should push the prepatch back about a month, which I had been expecting around Late July...

Wait... this isn't an April Fools' gag? Far Cry 5 is really selling that well?!

Wow... well I'll definitely be interested when the GotY version goes on sale, but it looks like more of the same.

What sequel isn't more of the same? And why is that considered bad?

If only those other Far Cry 5's could of had the strength of the Far Cry 5 that took down pubg, a day that will live in infamy. There's no rolling that boulder back on this easter.

I was telling my daughter about how crazy popular PUBG has been... Selling like 35 MILLION copies...

She's like... But what about Minecraft... So ya...

News Comments > Red Faction Guerrilla Re-Mars-tered Edition Announced

I never played Red Faction in their prime... Though I played a later one, with less building explosions (but with some nano rebuilding) which I ended up enjoying (may have even gotten a second playthrough)... So I'm happy with this news ; )

Though really, most remasters update textures, and some other minor bits, but not models, so the end result ends up looking nearly as dated as the original... And that was a turn off for me for this game/series.

Everything maxed out running smooth on a 28 inch 4K Samsung monitor at 3840 x 2160 held steady at 60 FPS and I'm behind a few version on drivers too.
Don't you just love it when someone posts fps and "everything maxed" but fails to mention system specs.

The PC Games (I think) review guy said he had a 980 (and the other guy a 1070) and was getting a solid 60 fps, which he found surprising, with everything at ultra minus an option or two... But didn't mention 4K, so I assume 1080p... Not sure why you'd be surprised a 980 or 1070 would run well enough at 1080 though...

I'd say that for me Arizona Sunshine is the closest VR has had so far to a killer app. It is pretty awesome actually. As to good seated VR experiences, I'd add Everspace to the mix. I have to turn on cockpit mode to avoid the nausea I get after playing for 10 or 15 minutes but it's pretty great. I'd love to see the upcoming Mechwarrior 5 with a VR mode. That has been a fantasy of mine from the day i first played Mechwarrior in the 90's.

You should give Archangel a try while you're waiting on Mech 5 VR.

Wasn't a big fan of Arizona Sunshine myself, but found Robo Recall's feel to be amazing... Also enjoyed Killing Floor (up until the last level)...

Killer App though... Closest would be Lone Echo... That game felt great... Was worried about the feel of Zero-G, but holy shit, that was fun ; )

I'm a gun owner. I hunted as a kid/young adult. I play a metric shit ton of video games.

School shootings are either a gun problem....or a mental health problem. All of you 'thoughts and prayers' fucknuts know this. So get off your fucking stick and either we go with revamping healthcare or we revamp gun control. Moving either one a few steps toward a modern/rational solution would do wonders. You can't have *both* being a shitshow designed to benefit corporations.

You sound like you had about the same up bringing that I had. I did all those things too. this is a mental issue and nothing else.

kids are not disciplined anymore and they are out of control. thank the CPS for this. They went over board on over protecting kids and not allow patents to discipline their kids. thank you social media.

I hope this is sarcasm... This line of thinking is just as ridiculous as blaming games for gun massacres... ~200 events, across tens/hundreds of millions of kids in the scenario you state...

I didn't end up playing much of the original, but I was thoroughly enjoying the show... The game had a lot of tie in to the show, so my interest in this version is much less.

Yeah, the beast thing seems like a chore, but maybe it's cool. I gotta say, it feels like this update came too soon. I just got a character to start doing the harder end game content and now I have to scrap him for the next league.

It's not like you're forced to start over... Characters move to standard... The biggest change in Standard is currency values... And a ton more access to uniques, legacy and new.

Not much interesting my in this league... Hard to top the addition of 6 acts worth of content though : )

What? Why would you play standard when you can play a much more interesting league? This isn't a question.

Well... I wouldn't... I start new characters for every build, instead of grinding their shitty 'respec' system... Just mentioning that it's an option : )
