The power consumption (and therefore the thermals) of the Ryzen CPUs is quite low - they are now the best CPU for gamers in cost-benefit-ratio. When it comes to GPUs, though, AMD is still way behind Nvidia and the power consumption of their GPUs is a bad joke even at 7 nm.

Rogue-like games with Metroidvania levels and 8-bit pixel graphics - BAM! Millionsellers!

And as long as this nonsense would be going on, I could play the 1,000 games I bought and never touched which have neither rogue-like game mechanics nor Metroidvania levels and graphics that don't give you eye cancer.

It will be Left 4 Dead 1.5 - a VR exclusive, of course!

A promo JPG will be released 02.27.20 for a teaser later this year that will prepare us for a trailer in 2021 - just 2 years ahead of the game's release in 2023!

Just kidding. I love Larian and expect them to turn BG3 into a great game.

The Cure's Integration album is one of the best albums I know - and you should stay MILES away from it if you are suffering from depression... Listen to it on a cold and gray November day, and even the happiest among us will suddenly feel the urge to cut their wrists.

It is still a masterpiece, though.

I would rather have ONE market place to buy from, too, but since this is never going to happen again (after the early Steam monopoly after the release of Half-Life 2), I can live with multiple stores. I bought some games from GOG, Epic (who made the games 10 cheaper for each game - thanks!), Steam, and UPlay, in December and don't feel bad about it.

What I hope for is GOG Galaxy 2.0 to just make ALL games from all of those platforms available in one gaming software. I hope they can pull this off without getting sued to hell and back!

I generally add anything I may play to Steam, even if not purchased from Steam.
The big exception is EGS. I don't know if you can add EGS games to Steam, or if they need the launcher. And, frankly, the only EGS game I installed was Subnautica, so...

Satisfactory. I played about 200 hrs of it and am kind of addicted to it. My personal best game of 2019. And it is an Epic exclusive.

GOG Galaxy 2.0 is hopefully evolving a bit more to make importing games from every other platform easy for every gamer.

So dumb. Microsoft declared end of life for this piece of shit YEARS ago. Rockstar had YEARS to decouple GTA4 from GFWL.

Too busy making RDR2. Honestly, which would you rather have?

How about pulling off what other companies could do WHILE working on other games?

But I guess a small independent company like Rockstar with almost no funds cannot take GFWL out of older games - like other big companies could and did.

The Darwin project "homo sapiens" is still in very, VERY early access and will stay there for a few million years or so, I guess.

Well, at least it will see its final release before Star Citizen, I guess.

So PS5 is like Epic? Or is it alright with the PS5 because... well... because Sony are the good guys who could get away with murder?

Also, here's a little tidbit I didn't know:
Rush released 19 studio albums, selling more than 40m units worldwide. They are ranked third, behind the Beatles and the Rolling Stones, for most consecutive gold or platinum albums by a rock band.
That's some good company.

Would you mind sharing the source of this information? It is not part of the Rolling Stone article and I would really like to know. 40m units sold worldwide is great but a far, FAR cry from what others have sold. The "consecutive" might be the deciding factor here, but to check that out, I would really like to read what the source has to tell us about that.

Yeah, I think it's the consecutive part that is the record. From this article.

Thanks, J!

All I want is some more Jedi Knight or TIE Fighter - not a Souls-like brawler that mostly appeals to console fans.

Anytime Tencent is involved in any investment, means you just sold your soul.

It is much wiser to sell your soul to US investment groups and hedge funds!

If you sell out, you sell out.

Yeah, imperfect Democracy vs Authoritarian dictatorship. All the same, sure.
meh
money vs money

Exactly. Getting screwed by "presumably good guys" is not much different from getting screwed by "presumably bad guys" - it is all about getting screwed by one group or the other, so you try to get screwed by those offering moah of that sweet sweet moneh!

It was a fun ride with the big screen, 3D glasses, and the motion DBOX seats. It's Disney after all! The lightsaber battle on the sea wall was perhaps the most spectacular.

That said, I knew they were over killing it when the seat delivered about 50% kick power as Rey (in a non-combat scene) simply plugged a cable into a droid.

Authentic! It is Super Rey after all, better and stronger - even before the training by Leia - than any other Jedi ever before in the first two movies. It she plugs in a cable it is like the 2nd coming - the audience should actually be electrocuted in their seats!
