Nice tweak! So are you able to chat while playing games then?Yes! Played Wreckfest while joined to a voice call in discord.
SMITE wrote on Sep 1, 2022, 01:43:Funny, I'm currently playing it again on the Series X (quick resume FTW!) and I love it (again!).
I remember getting the general impression in the lead-up to this game that it was a successor to the original "Prey," which I still think quite highly of. Why else would they use the same title? And it wasn't like publicity for the game countered that mis-impression. So when I eventually got a chance to play it, I was very disappointed, given that it had absolutely none of the elements I liked about the first game.
If I hadn't been encouraged to think of it as a successor, would I have seen Arkane's effort differently and appreciated it more on its own terms?
Really shitty move on Bethesda's part, for all concerned.

I do not touch card games, not even with a ten foot pole. But this is, of course, just my personal opinion on card games/battlers.
Intel is working on a new type of processor you've never heard of.The Pontium !?

I dunno, my PC cold boots in 10 seconds (granted I have an SN850 nvme and Win11), and games load very quickly too. I feel like it's comparable on a newish PC, especially if you put your PC into sleep instead and just tap the spacebar to turn it on in 6 seconds (just tested it to see).

I think that's awesome. Still haven't beaten Elden Ring, pretty close I think but not there yet and then I started a playthrough of Sekiro and after ER, I was
thoroughly enjoying it. I bounced off of it hard the first time I played it. Which speaks to how good the ER intro is to the From formula. Limgrave
is almost like this decade's sick & depressed Elywnn Forest.
Elden Ring Easy Mode Is One Of The Most Popular PC Mods ATM.The game already has an easy mode built in: Play as a ranged combat mage.

I'm about 8 hours in. I've heard ppl talk about quests and summoning tools. I haven't found one quest yet!? I did find some underground river area which finally made me love the game though. I went down hundreds or meters with an elevator and a HUGE and beautiful almost starry area opened up; an open world under an open world! I was awe struck. In the end I managed to "activate" a horned carcass and ended up fighting that ancients buck. It's reward was a spell to summon ancient dudes. I've also killed an undead Mariner and its reward is summoning undeads. But HOW do I summon them and why doesn't the fucking spell tell me this?! It's stuff like this why I still think the 10/10s are fucking ridiculous. Why do I have to Google that shit?
I'm a Confessor btw and I am still using my starter weapon. It's versatile and upgraded to +2 and I like tje Square Off skill. Also, why can't I use the main hand special skill when I am holding a shield? Also pisses me off. I have to do finger acrobats to go to 2h before I can Square Off.
It's time to head back and try Margret again.

Silent mode is pretty good even for modern games but one time I tried to run Dying Light 2 on the internal gpu and was surprised that it was really playable with FSR turned on and the fans were completely silent. So my point is, you can not compare the Steam Deck to an old laptop. Modern APUs have really come a long way.Laughing Man wrote on Feb 26, 2022, 03:48:The problem with gaming laptops is noise. My work laptop runs a rifts (we have training vr apps developed), its an asus tuf 1660ti. But boy is it noisy when the fans spools up So much so that we use display port and usb extension leads.
lol @ comparable to a gaming laptop. Yes, one from 20 years ago.
