Outer Wilds, got it, haven't tried, great expectations based on what I read.
Will wait for the expansion now.

Outer Worlds, unusual, the story seemed rather allegoric, losing some punch, but loved it all the same.
Steam 85% 12600 reviews.
Metacritic 82, user score 7.3

Don't know if it was fixed. You had to change a setting or two.

Interesting I don't have any VR issues with my 2080 Ti.
Me neither, man, VR performs stellarly. Talking about the Steam test only.
I think the RTXs being *relatively* new cards, weren't properly updated for in the SteamVR test then, and that snag could be well adressed now.

RedEye9, about the excellent Black Mesa, I was specially blown away with the fantastic Xen experience they created.

---------------------------------------
Kxmode, yes, the "SteamVR Performance Test".

But beware RedEye9, in january there was a problem where the RTX 2060, maybe others, failed to be sufficient.
(EDIT: talking about the ****Steam Test****, not real VR performance, nary a problem.)
Don't know if it was fixed. You had to change a setting or two.

Open NVidia Control Panel
Manage 3D Settings->
-Global settings
-Uncheck max photograms speed.
-Uncheck max photograms speed of apps in background.
Or similar labels, it's what I remember.

Ran the test again, it displayed the full green bar "... well above what is needed for ... high quality VR!", etc

Also, others tried.
-Set the preferred graphics processor
-High-performance NVIDIA processor.

And watch for overheating in a laptop.
I moderate my VR settings in my desktop, I prefer to preserve the hardware from overstressing.

Getting this. Previous games are RPG character + build up armies.
Some similarities to Spellforce, RPG party + RTS armies.
Such fine joyful time playing multiple times both series of games.

I think that Valve is totally abusing its dominant position in the market.

(Valve: Pssst, we have your wishlisted game at 40% off.)

My eyes on Selaco.

After enjoying the harrowing and nightmarish FPS Total Chaos on the GZDoom engine, with Silent Hill/Condemned Criminal Origins vibes, though it's very own thing, I'm hoping for another excellent game like that.

Prisons' populations are made of:
- Criminals
- Innocents (mostly colored people) needed for police/political promotions and prison workforce.
- Mental cases, from slightly malajusted but over time leading to jail, all the way to severe.

Well, mental issues, handicaps, up to certifiable full idiocy IQs, but not obnoxious enough to get jailed, explain flat earthers, lizard inhabited hollow earthers, scientologists and the like, anti-vaxxers, and QAnnoyers.

When your are drunk or high, you could swear you're fine and competent, but your foggy mind is diminished nontheless, just can't perceive it.

Imagine living your whole life so. And so this repetitive threads are explained.

On Sale rules !

-- Got Pumpkin Jack, good price, 94% very positive reviews.
Hectic 3rd person combat adventure platformer with a villain protagonist.

-- Also Hitman 2 Gold, 85% off, 2018.

It's a trap !

After you buy Gold, this content does *not* appear as adquired in the game page:
Legacy Pack + Legacy Pack Upgrade, includes the Patient Zero DLC (4 missions re-using scenarios from previous campaign, but easier and shorter except for Hokkaido), etc.

Do not buy them !
After buying only Gold, the Patient Zero and much more appeared in my library too :
+Special Assignment Packs 1 & 2 +Haven Island +New York +Siberia +Hantu Port +Packs: Collector's, Executive, Small Casual, Winter Sports.

And so it goes.
Made their minds or it was made for them (family, group, party, religion), and that's it, no turning back.
No capacity for analysis, no contrary facts will matter.

Too many people can believe anything.
The easiest example :
Hundreds of millions believe blindly in various all powerfull/caring/jealous/peaceful/warlike gods that, strangely, are all unable or unwilling to show themselves to help or guide their people.
And they all need human intermediaries to communicate for some reason.
And they want money. Lots.

OMG, reality proof.
- Did you know that *every* government in the world is afraid of letting COVID run amok, be they left or far right leaning ?
No mass left leaning media campaign orchestrated silliness affecting *them*.
- Did you know that almost all hospitalizations and deaths are now non vaccinated people.
- Do 610,000 lost lives mean nothing to you ?
- Did you open your mind lately ?
Well, if you live in certain USA cities with no ICUs available now because of left lies, don't think of having a heart attack, serious car accident or any other medical life threatening crysis, because, boy, you're out of luck.

eRe4s3r, you talked from evident knowledge and expertise.

And *I must apologize*, as playing the Switch version, I wronged the PC Diablo 3 :
The restricted view in Diablo 3 Collector Edition on the Switch is particular to it.
No zoom in, nor out *at all*.
The PC allows both, the PS4 also, but to a lesser degree.

I mostly prefer speed play to grind, love games, want to finish them all, so I choose offline.
Played a visually simplified game, but in Act V, wanting to see already about Paragon levels, I froze the remaining experience to 0 value with CE (4 bytes new 6 addresses at level 70, and again somewhere with paragon levels).
That means you level up with each kill, went from common level 45 to now 105 Paragon level in one sitting.
Works for me

You began fine there. As a personal preference, nobody will seriously oppose your choices.
But then you put all games with DLCs in the same bag, that's grossly overgeneralizing, should I say, simple-minded.
Worse, you imply that all gamers that find many DLCs interesting are simple-minded milk worthy people (not at all, End of Zoe, Grim Dawn's, Spellforce 3's, etc great DLCs come to mind).
Like most semi-intelligent gamers, I choose carefully my DLCs, don't you talk sh!t about them, ya hear !

******* See my new other post, what follow is wrong because the restricted view in Diablo 3 Collector Edition on the Switch is particular to it.
No zoom in, nor out *at all*. Doesn't apply to the PC, ooops. ********

Finishing Diablo 3 CE act V ... nice, but rather boring, to my personal tastes.
Combat after combat, change equipment, repeat.
The surrounding areas are well done but so barely shown, might not be there at all.
So, no sense of real progress, side exploration or inspiring vistas at all, no adventure, just one loooong arena.
With the "I'll destroy you, any minute now, just you wait" baddies, that then go down in a minute.

And Path of Exile is worse with a much restricted
view, like seeing ants antics in a flask.
Fascinating to the combat fans no doubt, glad for them, my loss, sigh.

*** See my new other post, this was wrong, my bad, sooorrryyy ***
