If you have an Epic account, obviously they have your email address already... So just use that or an auth app of your choice to get a 6 digit code verification whenever a new device is detected at login. It should be on by default, IMO, especially with how big of a target Fortnite paints on you.

You shouldn't ever use SMS verification for anything, that is by far the worst option because all the attacker needs is your phone number to intercept that code. Meanwhile you have a false sense of security and never see it coming until it's too late.

Yeah. Just this. ^^
I just added 2fa through an existing auth service I had on my phone.

Never use SMS if another option is available.

Smart move... the F1 season has been cancelled and all the fans have got the itch!

Came to say the same thing.

Still amazes me that most of the rest of the world knew the Aus GP was cancelled before the people on the ground here did.

Today also marks the launch of PC Cross-Play, which allows you to play the Steam version of Borderlands 3 with players on other PC platforms. Thanks to some exciting new SHiFT matchmaking functionality, Borderlands 3 PC players can add friends to their Friends Lists, join co-op parties, and play together online regardless of which PC platform each player is using.

How is this even a selling point? "PC Cross-Play" isn't a thing.

XBox-PS or PS-PC is Cross-Play, PC-PC is just play, there's no cross in there at all, unless you count how I'm feeling that they would try to use it as a selling point.

Enh, mebbe one day. And not for more than $5.

It's on the xbox game pass for windows, so if you're already signed up for that it technically falls into that price range.

Crunching for most of the year isn't crunching, that's a shitty employer.

On the topic of "Thai teen gamer who was found dead of an apparent stroke".
There has been a few of these over the years, and I've never really heard about it after the initial clickbaity headline.

I wonder how many of the people that have died while gaming all night were hyped up on caffeine drinks and the like, and what part that played in their demise?

It's fine to say "game dies after gaming all night", but it would be better to know if it was really something else that caused it.
ie: "gamer dies after drinking 17 redbulls in 4 hours"

I've always use the black (retro) colour scheme.

The Launch Links option was always useful too, but now that I can middle click on links, it's not so much a requirement anymore.

1500 RAGE Coins ($15 USD)
2000 RAGE Coins ($20 USD)

Wow!! I'm glad they're selling RAGE Coins in the following pack sizes so I'm not wasting money to buy an expansion pack.

500 RAGE Coins A$7.95
1100 RAGE Coins A$14.95
2500 RAGE Coins A$29.95
4500 RAGE Coins A$52.95

Unfortunately I can't see the USD prices, but that doesn't change the fact that you can't buy an exact amount for the upgrade.

Who are the suckers buying Youngblood? That game is abysmal! Who allowed those shit devs to release a game like that and call it Wolfenstein? What a disgrace and an insult to pc gamers.


It's currently one of the two free games that come with nVidia cards. I'm not sure if those numbers are factored in to this list though.

Snapped up a Rog Strix 2080ti yesterday at 35% off, primarily due to how quiet it functions and in preparation for my next purchase... a 3440 X 1440 120hz WQHD ultrawide monitor (my 980ti struggles at 1440p these days).

So this news is good for me at least, but not unexpected due to the performance of the other Super cards and the 2080S Final Fantasy benchmark leak from a few days back.


Good for me too!

I went all in last week and got the 2080ti and i9-9900k.
Before buying, I did a lot of research and spent hours pouring through garbage from fanboys on both sides, but in the end I decided to go Intel solely because of the motherboard and single core speed.

I felt dirty dropping $6k AUD on a new PC, but I got 7 years out of the last one, minus a couple video card upgrades at an average of 6+ hours a day usage, so I think it'll be a worthwhile investment.

That is a much better use of their cash.
They may well even see a return on that investment too.

Personally I'm quite interested in this.

I know there was a thing a while back with accessing your steam games from Gog Galaxy, but that never worked for me.

I'm interested to see if they can actually bring it all together, so all the games I have across steam/egs/blizz/origin/ubisoft and Gog do really come together into a single library.

If they can do PS/XBOX/Nintendo as well, that will also be interesting.

The ~3 people per country who have the computer to run Cyberpunk 2077 at decent framerates with ray tracing enabled will be ecstatic.

I know I know, future proofing, planning for release and post release computer stats, etc.

I'm in the market to be one of those 3 people for Australia. Looking at all the hardware just makes my head hurt nowadays though, so I'm thinking I might actually buy a pre-built system for the first time in my life.
