I thought it was interesting. Felt more like a tutorial for "professionals" that want to repair these, possibly for a business. Compare with Apple's approach.

I ran it against my brand new PC at work, built about four months ago, and it is not supported. I'm messing around with BIOS settings at the moment trying to turn TPM 2.0 on. Win 10 better have support for a long while since there's no way we're upgrading all the PCs in the company all at once to support this.

So it says "no longer possible to download older game versions". What about preventing updates? We test some of our systems with Steam games and I've set a flag that is supposed to prevent updates (although I haven't tested it much). Anyone know if this change breaks that? I'd honestly like to tell the testers tough luck as I hate setting the flag for every game.

I played about 30 hours of this in early access. Finally stopped because I wanted to wait for release. Honestly it doesn't look like a whole lot has changed from when I played it. Certainly content was added, but I didn't see a whole lot about UI changes and other quality of life changes. I wasn't following too closely though. If you enjoying building a town from nothing, then I'd recommend it. It scratched that itch for me. Watch some guides first though, specifically a "where should I settle" guide. I abandoned my first town because its location was crap. I might jump back in again now that it's released if I can find time. Rimworld kinda sucking the life out of me at the moment. Again.

I'm about 4 hours into it. It's definitely got some appeal, but I'm feeling a lack of content. Crafting, graphics, gameplay are all fun. Mob variation sucks and there's not very many quests. The quests they do have are voiced well. They just need about 5 - 10x more of them. Not much to kill at my level (10 - 15) unless I want to grind. I certainly think it's got potential, just not sure they can achieve it.

I put a ton of hours into this a few months ago. I decided to take a break and wait for release. Not sure if I'll head back, but it was a lot of fun building up a village. I'd watch a few "new player" tutorials first. My village location kinda sucked, and I wasted a lot of time on buildings I didn't need in the early game.

I remember when Quake first came out there were still so many keyboard-only players from Doom that still stuck to keyboard-only in Quake as well. I've seen a few who were still quite good even though they had to have a look up and look down key.

This happened to me. We had a competition in college. We keyboard folks got our asses handed to us by two people who used mouse. Didn't even know that was a thing. Immediately started learning M+K.

What continually bugs me about the Settings app is that it's a single-instance program. There's no way to have the System->Display and the Personalization->Colors screens up at the same time, for example, or System->Sound and Devices->Bluetooth. Let us open multiple windows!

This one drives the shit out of me. Open Windows Update so I can watch it in the background and then open Computer Name or something and the update window goes away. Grrr. The settings UI is garbage. Looking for Adapters? Open network page and you don't see it, click somewhere else, then click back, boom it's there now. WTF?

Here's hoping they can figure out how to rebind keys this time.

Anyone here play the original ELEX? I had it on my wishlist but never got to it.

I think it had potential, but ultimately I couldn't get into it. Tried a few times. Just felt really slow. I don't remember much of anything about the story. On my last attempt, I tried the Skyrim approach which involved picking a direction and looking for adventure. That didn't work either. It was just meh.

It's a solid game hurt by the ever-slimy presence of loot boxes.

Meh, all my normal boxes are dropping gold since I have almost everything (I only play arcade). Some of the skins look great, but there are just so many that I've stopped caring about them. I'm more concerned with Overwatch 2 and whether they're going to be more aggressive with them. Like locking heroes behind the boxes.

Damn it, don't say that I'm in line for 3060ti !

Same. I've been in queue for a 3080 since January. I'm tempted to just cancel it and wait for the 3080Ti now. Might even have a better chance at the newer model if it's got a limiter on mining.

They let you rebind keys yet? They said a long time ago that they were going to add it to a future patch, but I never saw it. I've uninstalled it since it was collecting dust.

I almost went for a QNAP actually, they have great hardware. But not so great on the software, and the security issues are a big reason why I went for a synology, despite the significant price increase.

We use a number of Synology where I work, and I have one at home for a media server. Great software. I have one running Plex directly on it. We bought QNAP prior to Synology. Not bad, but the software wasn't as good, IMO. Ended up putting a bunch of HA units in for file storage and VMs.

I just started the demo last night. Anyone who bought and played further, does the story get better? Kinda shit at the moment. Just unlocked my mage abilities.

Spoiler:
The entire starting sequence with super epic mega bad guy that goes off the rails is way over the top and completely ruined the start of this game for me. I have a bad feeling about everything else now.

My 6-7 year old MB has the M2 SSD exposed, right under case fans basically, while all the new ones seem to have metal heatsinks and/or a metal cover over the M2s.

The few I've bought had heat pads under that metal (pull it out, peel the sticky stuff off). They touch the m2 directly and, I assume, transfer the heat out through the racing stripes heatsink. I haven't thought about it much though.

It's one of the better open world games I've played despite several flaws - story, enemy variety and a few other things. You should really give it another chance sometime.

And then they added a damn car DLC that had to be maintained all the time. I know people liked the car, but I hated it. Original game was great though.

1000 v-bucks is $10. Yay? I think I bought some years ago for that other Fortnite thing (the single-player game). Wonder if that'll count. I could be rich.
