Sandy Peterson "Quake Fun Facts"

https://youtu.be/QfwoTuoJln8

Sandy tells some good stories here- Topics range from American McGee getting slipped PCP when iD went out to dinner with Trent Reznor (and suspicions of Pantera involvement, LOL), tunnel vision in game design and accepting outside influence, to the Jaguar Doom 2 port.

Valve could really have a hit on their hands here if the streaming portion is done well (since it has such limited internal/fast storage), and also possibly eGPU capability. With the included displayport spec being able to handle 4k/120fps or 8k60, eGPU would make a lot of sense if they can pull it off.

Could also be an emulation powerhouse likely able to even do switch games better than the switch itself. Also doesn't look like its built like a toy, as the switch is.
Very intriguing.

One of these days I'd like to put together or acquire one of those multi-game arcade boxes. I can promise you that the ability to play Donkey Kong will be one of the first criteria for this project.

Try out MiSTer FPGA. Since I left pretty much all of modern gaming about 3 years ago, this has been the main gaming platform in my house. Next-level stuff, even has a 486 core that can run Doom including Roland Sound Canvas support for best quality music on the classic. I moderate the main discord for MiSTer now and do testing on pretty much all cores on the platform. Donkey kong and its sequels are all there in their original arcade glory as well, with Capcom's CPS1/2 recently making it to MiSTer also.

Github link: https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/wiki

My YT channel, specifically made to share MiSTer gameplay experiences: https://www.youtube.com/c/MiSTerWalrusFPGA
(Organized by system)

In this day and age, don't get some cheap chinese emulation box. The original console/computer/arcade quality (including original latency) is all achievable with a device that costs $180, and it's *well* worth it. Best deal in gaming I've ever encountered, and completely open source. Yes, it's really that good.

Hopefully online communities can do something special with the game/IP. CDPR certainly did not. Squirting out an unfinished experience was such a disappointing ending to the anticipation for this game. So much squandered potential, that maybe only the community can realize at this point.

Cyberpunk has been de-listed from the Playstation Store and seems to be offering refunds to *anyone* who purchased it there. What a mess this became.

Meanwhile I'm over 40 hours into it on PC and haven't had a single crash, with a handful of bugs here and there but nothing game breaking. This is with 5+ yr old hardware also (4790k, 980ti). I've been overall very impressed with the game so far. I really wish they would have just made it a PC-only game from the start, instead of ending up with the 5+ targets they are having to tune for now. Can only imagine it would have gone smoother that way, and likely been a deeper experience not constrained by what may be manageable on older console hardware. Still a great game.

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!
