Haven't played the original RE3, so Jill looks alright. Nice haircut.
I don't get what's going on that dude's head, however. Some kind of unholy union between glam rock and TDK Joker?

Downunder.
So not old, a new version. But still locked. Fow now? I'm so confused.
Squeenix' infinite wisdom at work. Meanwhile, all the console versions are already out at this stage.
This is what we get when the games are in the hands of NISA. XSEED please save us from this hell.
Imagine wanting people to double-dip for a worse fucking version running at 540p/20fps.

Also they have the audacity to port CS3 first and not CS1/2, lmao.

FPS games are among my favorite genre, but I never had an xbox so never played Halo. Are people excited for the new Halo releases mostly because of nostalgia, or will the games actually hold up?

I guess CS1/2 would probably depend on XSeed? Since they still handled the PS4 versions.
But yeah, really annoying, giving priority for a Switch version of CS3, which doesn't have any of the previous games on it, over the PC, which has 5 of them in the west...

That sucks! When did you order it?
I got a shipping confirmation on mine so I should be safe.
I ordered on the 27th. Though it looks like Gabe came through for me anyways and has shipped it?

I received an e-mail last night saying specifically my controller was canceled. Went to sleep.

Checked the shipment details just now and says it shipped today. It's a Christmas miracle.

The Steam controller arrived here today as well. I also received the NVMe SSD I purchased on Friday and spent an hour looking everywhere for a screw and a standoff to install it, I also took it as a chance to clean up my computer a bit and change the thermal compound on the CPU, which is something I had been meaning to do for the past year and a half. I'll probably try the controller out later.

I'm curious: why is there no Resident Evil 1 remake? The remaster is unplayable nowadays with the fixed camera and clunky combat.
dunno ... they probably decided 0 and 1 are good enough as current-gen versions

This is great news! I was afraid this would be another EGS exclusive.
Maybe the devs don't know aboutt he EGS exclusivity and they get to know about it when all of us does it.
yeah, unfortunately adding achievements isn't a sign of anything ... so we still don't know

You are aware that the Resident Evil 1 on Steam is already a remake right? It was remade for GameCube and remastered for PC.

Confusing, I know. But I guess instead of remaking Resident Evil again, it was probably better for both them and the fans if they remade the other games that haven't been touched since PSX.

Makes sense. I was asking because I never played the first 3 games on PSX. I've bought the remasters of 0 and 1 on PC, but for me it was an extremely frustrating experience, so I gave up both after 30 minutes. I hate the fixed camera views changing at any unexpected moment. It's why I've never finished Alone in the Dark as well.

While i'm already on the topic of things i'm unreasonably salty about, i wish the HALO MCC would be 6 individual releases instead of a single collection so i could create a steam collection called halo and look at the games individual cover arts in it

:NotLikeDis:


But I have a very elegant solution. Create one custom cover, sign it Halo 6 in 1 OCD Triggered. Perfect.

I still haven't figured out why is it that nvmes can't be installed like ram - slap twice and it's ready.

Do we know if it's posible to buy an Steam controller from other place? It seems my Steam controller order was cancelled 😢

How strict is Valve and activating keys from other regions? a key I bought cdkeys isn't available in my region, If use a VPN and activate in that region, will Valve ban me?
It is against TOS and you could get banned, but I've done that a few times and nothing has happened to my account. The last time I did this was a few months ago though.

I have the full modular version of it (Focus Plus Gold 650W, SSR-650FX model) and I don't have any noise problems with it.
Unfortunately the sale for the one I linked is already over, and it's also out of stock. :x
This is the one I ended up ordering. Seasonic FOCUS GX-650, 650W 80+ Gold, Full-Modular, Fan Control in Fanless, Silent, and Cooling Mode, 10 Year Warranty, Perfect Power Supply for Gaming and Various Application, SSR-650FX. - Newegg.com

It cost me $120USD in total including tax and 2 day delivery from new egg, since I want to finish my build this weekend when I have time and everything else is pretty much sold out.... I blame Gaben and Half Life

The Focus GX series are pretty much the 2nd generation of Focus Gold, so I assume it's even better. ^^

EDIT: Just noticed that the long title name in the page mentions both FOCUS GX and SSR-650FX.
I assume that the SSR-650FX part is a mistake, the 650FX is the 1st generation full modular version, Focus Gold Plus, while FOCUS-GX-650 is the full modular 2nd generation.
