this is not a streaming friendly game. half of the time you are just voyaging across the ocean manning different parts of a ship. not really what people tune into twitch for. elite 360 noscopes are few and far between here.

also, gotta take game pass numbers into that equation. not everyone who played this one extensively had bought it.

i've had a blast with RDR2, and these numbers cant be conclusive without taking the rockstar launcher into account, which is probably where a majority of the sales have been, because of the superior pre-order bonuses and the direct line of communication via email, etc to everyone registered to their own Social Club from GTA and previous games.

Using a launcher to launch another launcher is not an optimal experience, IMO, and likely many people who bought on steam previously and had to deal with this, just got it from the source this time.

the game ran perfect for me since launch, and i had maybe 1 crash getting through 50% of the game, but the most recent patch changed all that for me and there are numerous issues now. I wish they didnt force people to patch single player games like this.. everything was running so smoothly for me before.

I know this was not the norm for most people running the game, but it was rock solid on my system and its been a bit disappointing getting it forcibly downgraded like this so soon. its cheapened the single player experience with some of the physics bugs that have been introduced which kind of sucks because rdr2 single player is all ive been playing.

Try deleting all the files where your system.xml file is located (don’t delete system.xml). This should rebuild the cache properly.

Thanks. I deleted some vulkan files there before and it didn't help. I'll try nuking the rest

i bought a couple of the steam links also when they were on sale. The charger alone was worth it, as its a perfect match for the original PSP 1000 models (only ones i have), and is a far better charger than any of the crappy ones you can buy for it nowadays.

The controller on the other hand.. not even worth $5. Worst latency in any modern controller since the DS3. Even worse than it in some regards, and just terrible at so many genres and games I love, like classic console games/emulation. If I were going to lug a controller around anywhere to use for convenience, it would have to work with those games at least somewhat decently, and this turd does not pass that basic benchmark like pretty much every other major controller does.

While I can respect that some of you surely prefer style over substance, this game is very much worth your time if you ever enjoyed classic action games like the ninja gaiden series. its well made, easy to get in to, an excellent entry into it's genre, and free.

Well worth your time if you are in to this style of game.

What amazing timing. I've never played a Red Dead Redemption game before, but just about a month ago I won an auction for a new Xbox 360 for $100, and picked up red dead redemption 1 with all dlc for around $10 to go with it. Just started playing the game a week ago, and I've been hooked. Probably 20 hours into the game now, still haven't even crossed the river that goes through the middle yet and really just enjoying the atmosphere and exploration. I'm also undefeated in poker after clearing the tables in 3 towns already =)

I should be ready for RDR2 right around the time it comes out on PC.. which is awesome. Been playing the first game on a CRT also, looks and plays great even on the old 360. 4k upscaled on the xb1x looks good, but the world loses some of its cohesiveness with the lower-res assets mixed with high res output, so I tried it on an old Trinitron and am really glad I did, because I'll be playing through the rest of the game this way now. Frame rate has issues sometimes, but it's not too unmanageable, especially with the quick lock-in you get when your aim is centered on enemies and dead-eye.

yeah its an epic store exclusive, but you could do much worse with your money. at least a portion of your purchase will go to the original creator of tetris, which you cannot say for many franchises as old as this

this game is a ton of fun, even when your co-op partner is a complete fuckwit and just doing stupid shit left and right (which also often will effect you), it still manages to be a pretty awesome experience.

glad i gave this one a try some years ago, and looking forward to playing again now that its out of early access!

i have a hard time believing that microsoft is going to pro-actively refund every account that has been used to purchase a book through them with DRM.

likely many of those same accounts arent open or are changed, so how would something like this work anyways?

edit: you just get locked in to spending it on other microsoft crap, and it is refunded to "microsoft accounts" that people may or may not have anymore, which likely have an expiry date for funds added to them.. so it just goes back to microsoft in the end for a good portion of this, it looks like.

100m from whatever much smaller amount they invested in making that mobile game is likely the fuel for them releasing other timer-based mobile cash grabs from their franchises, like Blades.

Really a terrible bunch of rubbish modern Bethesda is putting out, besides Id's usually successful sequels.

Woke up to the add-on bug and fixed it quickly with this.

"Update: Mozilla started to roll out a fix for Release, Beta, and Nightly versions of Firefox. The fix uses Mozilla Studies, and you need to make sure that this is enabled to get it. Mozilla notes that you may disable Studies again after the fix is applied and add-ons have been re-enabled. You need to make sure that "Allow Firefox to install and run studies" is checked on about:preferences#privacy."

full article https://www.ghacks.net/2019/05/04/your-firefox-extensions-are-all-disabled-thats-a-bug/

I used this same method. It took maybe... 20 minutes for it to update after I turned Studies on? Turned it off, uBlock and Ghostery are still working for me.

As a general rule, it's not a good idea to download scripts/executables/unoffical workarounds from random forum posts.

"This is the fix Mozilla has published to be installed via shield studies, but skipping the shield studies part. You can be sure it's not malicious because it is signed by Mozilla... and if your browser installed unsigned extensions you wouldn't be looking for this solution in the first place."

I guess I got lucky and it broke then got fixed while my system was asleep.

Edit: Wow, literally 1 minute after posting this all of my addons disabled. Fuuuuu...

Edit #2: I used this fix someone posted in the comments on Mozilla's official fix.

my firefox was still busted when i checked about an hour ago, and the fix in that link you provided instantly remedied the situation. thanks.

so its $500 without the tracking stations and controllers, or $1000 with them..

Are those really so expensive/necessary to warrant the same price as the headset itself?

I wonder how quickly they will come down in price for people who go with the 'headset only' option

its funny all the people complaining about valve's 30% cut now that another corporation told them its a problem.

Valve has the money to invest in whatever the fuck they want, not just what clickbait following 'gamurz' think is the most socially pressing issue of the day. You think they just started developing this after Epic made a storefront and challenged their position? This is a long-term project for them and I hope they have the software side ready before too long to go along with the new tech.

144hz is still a long way off for matching framerates, but there are tangible lag reductions possible even with lower-framerate software on a higher-hz display. As a plus, it can push more frames to the displays when hardware catches up to that level as well.

All my fans are RGB and my new 1660Ti has an RGB strip in the shroud for the fans at the top of the card. If anything, this is nothing more than an evolution from the old CCT days from 20 years ago.

I used my RGB fans as system indicator lights. One acts as a drive activity light, one is a heat warning, another is network activity, and so on.

You know how many LED's my gaming rig has?

1

the power button

The rest of it is a well cooled, noise insulated steel fortress. Which is how you can tell I built my rig myself Because my rig is just like my heart. Dark, tungsten steel coated fluffiness.

Ditto. And even the power LED has dark colored masking tape over it on my tower to dim the overly bright LED there.
First thing I did when I got my first (and last..) Razer mouse recently was to shut off all that chroma shit so my mouse stopped glowing. When gaming I don't like the distractions, especially.
