It's live now, and you can check it out. Really interesting looking at that one. Seems people are liking that new update they put out.

It is. And the graph itself is rather slick.
I think the 'hours played' stat should be a bit larger or bold. That's something I always look at when looking at reviews. I hate seeing something like 'best game ever! I play it every day!' and they have 1.6 hours on record. Sure, some of the time may be played in offline mode, but still.
Glad to see them tweaking it.

Cutter Slade, Navy SEAL? Hrm, was his name that bad in the original?

Looks fairly interesting.

Yeah, I think that's what his name was. Original (updated version) is on GOG
I had checked it out from there, as I had never played it originally. Seemed like a cool game, but if I remember right, the controls were pretty wonky. Didn't really give it a chance. This remake looks pretty decent though.

But repopulation is back. They worked out a deal with the engine folks and got it going again. My old character was still there too.

I've gotta finish my first playthrough of Mad Max. Really is a cool game. Just too damn much to play.

This game is fucking confusing. I can't seem to really get into it. It's a weird kind of game that I've never played before. I've had this game on my PC for a couple of years at least, and I go back to it every so often, but it still never really makes sense to me, and I'm not even sure if I like it or not... I can't describe it. :/

Perfect way to describe it. I'm in the same boat. I've installed the game a number of times, but I just can't get into it.

cool gonna try out Titan fall..

heard titan fall 2 had a good single player campaign.. how is it in the original ?

There isn't one. It was multiplayer only.

As for Unravel, I thought it was pretty cool at first, but it's just not really the type of game for me. Not too big on puzzle type games.

May have to pick this up...We shall see....

Ok I'm sold on the GI-Joe Cobra tank, and driving over Hungry Hungry Hippo's. (The only game my sister and I had for a total of 5 mins before it was promptly taken away due to noise, and replaced with a rubik's cube that my dad spent 5 mins turning just to make it impossible to solve).

Heh. Yeah, that game was friggin LOUD!

I need to reinstall Conquistador. Got distracted with other stuff, and never got very far into it. Really enjoyed what I played though.

I agree with all of the comments about live-tv. I'd also like to throw out one of my own: convenience. When I want to watch something, I want to just select it and start watching. I don't want to plan things around a show. I remember hating that as a teenager. Wanted to do something, but damnit, X-Files is on in 10 minutes!

Conditions Apply: You need

- a free Sony Entertainment Network account,
- PlayStation Now-compatible device (including compatible Windows PC or PS4),
- a compatible DualShockŪ4 controller,
- 5Mbs or greater broadband Internet connection,

"including compatible Windows PC or PS4." Does this mean I don't need to buy a PS4? The "or" implies this.

You don't need a PS4. It's just that the service can be used on a PS4.

Never seen that vampire flick. I'll have to check it out.
And yeah, Bill was always good. In tons of rolls, and he always played the role damn well.

Also a reminder that River City Ransom Underground released on steam today, for fans of the beat-em-up genre

Ooh! Nice! Saw a trailer for it recently, and it looks great.

Certainly not worth %6 a month so why do they think that $10 a month would be something people would want.

They certainly have a unrealistic idea what the few good shows they have are worth.

Yep. Also, I signed my wife up for it a while ago (maybe last year), cause they had some shows she wanted to watch that weren't available anywhere else. What was lame is that they didn't even have full series available. Several shows only had the latest season, or last two seasons or so, which was pretty much the same as Hulu. Our subscription did not last long.

Maybe silly Hollywood action directors will watch this video and learn some things about making an exciting and realistic chase.

That's what I was thinking while watching that. Way more thrilling than a movie chase. Friggin stupid too. Either of them could have died or killed someone else during that.
The address for the video has the name ghostrider in it. Not sure if it's really him, but a few years ago I checked out some of his videos. Damn good rider, but he's a fuckin nut job.

My Windows 10 already has a game mode, it is called Steam. It also has a secondary game modes they are Origin and Uplay...

What I read on other sites it seems this will only work for UWP games. So probably not your steam collection then

Source?

I was reading that it's an OS thing, not a game-platform thing. It just detects a full-screen app (I'm assuming any full-screen app, I'm hoping) and you can toggle the behaviour if it will lock all the background bullshit down. I just want a switch on the settings UI that says "game mode" and all of a sudden I have all my RAM, CPU cycles, and the Network only allows user-selected apps to do anything. That's a dream Windows live performance setup.

What was that site? Black something? It had a list of all the old XP services in windows you could turn off without borking your system. Used to use it to tune old PCs before they became powerful enough to just not really bother. Most of that shit's still there, and a switch to turn it all off that doesn't involve editing registry keys would be positively delightful.

*edit HA! found it. MajorGeeks has an archive, as the original is down. Black Viper they called it. So great. Still relevant.

Blackviper was awesome. Just did a search, and looks like he's got something for Win10

I still don't get why Paizo isn't getting Pathfinder video games pumped out. I'd love to see a Pathfinder NWN type game.

I thought someone was working on one. I swear I remember hearing about that. May be confused though.
