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.

Disappointing. I'm really itching for a new game, but sounds like this isn't it.

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.

After watching some videos, this appears to just be a miner with an idle game on top of it.

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.

Ugh, what the fuck, my coop people are already all talking about this game or actually playing it. Don't get us sucked into chopping trees and rocks and shit all day, to build somebody else's castle!

I've been playing with my kid. He builds the castle, I go hunting. Occasionally I bring him along to clear out a burial chamber. Been enjoying it so far.

They won’t have to look very far.

No kidding. When the RH exec goes on air to tell everyone they're manipulating the stock, not exactly a difficult task. Of course, the HFs and Robinhood should just tell the SEC to get fucked. They aren't going to do anything anyway.

This article's main point is flawed. The PS5 doesn't exist. Months of searching for it proves this. Like those RTX 3080 cards.

I wonder what the headlines will be come this time next month after .the stock has "crashed."

I don't think anybody is expecting it not to crash. And yeah, lots of people will lose, including me. But I'm only using money from my EGS fund. So it's ok.

Got me a 3080 Ultra FTW3. Looking forward to seeing this game tonight.

Where'd you find one? I've yet to see any 3080 in stock, of any brand. FTW3 is what I'm mainly looking for though.
