This can be handy once it is updated:



It might work, but Geforce Now only supports Elite Dangerous on Steam, so one has to download 21 GB from Epic in order to link the Epic account to Frontier. Too much of a hassle for me, with no guaranteed reward.
I tried it. Downloaded the game on Epic launcher and I got this message.



Also sorry for hijacking the Steam thread a bit. I know it's not the place to talk about Epic.

I picked up a dualsense and have been using it the last couple of days with the Steam beta update. I really like the feel of it. Sits nicely in my hands. Yeah it would be nice if they can utilise all the features of it on PC.
That's all I'm waiting on really, for it to have basic support wirelessly. I am confident we'll get there in a few weeks. Valve is working quickly on this.
The new MacBooks look very impressive and are very tempting.
And then I remember that Macs are still fucking useless for games regardless :(
Apple is generally useless to me for computing devices. Far too locked down.

I could see it being useful for phones, or tablets, but honestly, even for those devices, there's decent competition from Android devices, often much cheaper and performance that is certainly "good enough".

That being said, I do think it's Amazing what Apple has managed to do here. If these performance margins can be replicated by Qualcomm and other ARM chip designers, then I wonder how soon we will see proper high-end ARM CPUs on PC. Apple has shown with Rosetta 2 that decent emulation is possible.

Im itching to play a dungeon crawler, but I have also have Mudrunner, FFVII, What The Golf, Godfall, Pathless, Bugsnax, CoD, Valhalla installed to play through.

I have also yet to touch my PS4 copy of Crash 4, Tony Hawk 1+2 Remake and FFVIIR (got it during a price mistake in a retailer here for cheap, but not sure If I wanna wait for the PC version or not, same with Crash 4 and Tony Hawk for Steam).

Guess the lack of PS5 stock was more useful then I realized.

Years ago I had no money for games, but lots of free time.

Now I can buy whatever games I want, but have little time.

This is proof of real commitment when it comes to PC support, same game in three different platform giving choice to users of where they want to buy it.
If they keep releasing games and do the same movements, it will be a great strategy and a truly good move from customer perspective.

See Shahem? this is the way, releasing everywhere to max profit from every single customer out there. :dualbladesblob:


Yakuza Kiwami 3. Let's go.
To be honest, yes, it's Kiwami 3 or perhaps it's Ishin remaster.

As RGG western account hasn't tweeted about this I will assume it's a japan only stream and we should not expect any port at all.

Very cool to see HZD on GoG. I hope we hear about more Sony games on PC soon.
Same. Now that the PS5 is behind them I see no reason for them not to start letting us know what they have in store for us in 2021.
Obviously not all of Queen's list will release in 2021 (TLOU 2 is 2022 probably, same for Ghost of Tsushima) but in 2021 I could see :
-Bloodborne (finally ! )
-God of War (before Ragnarok)
-Days Gone (2 years after original release, should leave enough time to maximise console sales)
-Uncharted Collection (should not be too hard to port really, little perf testing required since those are PS3 games at heart)

Maybe the first The Last of Us ? Would not be a dumb move to release it before the second one in 2022.

We will see. :)

Not sure it proofs real commitment to be honest.
Could also be them just testing waters how different store fronts perform.
For me it does, it shows intention of expanding and not closing down to a singular platform, giving choice to the users where to spend their money.

I think we've way passed the point where PC gaming needs "water testing" anymore. It might still be needed 5+ years ago, but this is 2020. The audience on PC is so diverse, there are always be people who buy even the nichest of games. There's only one possible outcome in releasing AAA console games on PC, more profit.

I might be able to play on minimum settings. Crazy if true.

Edit: Nope.

👌 I have 70 GB HDD, so it is allegedely fine but not recommended.

I will stick to Geforce Now. I might need to subscribe for a month to circumvent the queue every hour. :boomer:

yeah, i don't think there's a scenario where sony release any of their first-party stuff on PC and it doesn't sell ... hell, even Knack would sell :p

question is - do sony know that? :p

Not that I disagree with your assessment of the PC market.
But this is Sony we are talking about.
A company that has been trapped in their own limitations and "views" for a long time.
Indeed, their first effort with Horizon was quite telling, huh. They cheaped out on the port the result was embarassing.

If I were an employee at Sony gaming division, I'll show the higher ups the Monster Hunter World PC numbers and tell them that it's the first MH game on PC, ported with enough care and consideration (while tbf, it's not a perfect port). That way, the higher ups at Sony might consider pouring more resources for future PC ports.

hopefully they're now aware - after the initial user reviews and the fact that Guerrilla had to spend the last 3 or 4 months fixing the port :p

I'd start my presentation with me playing a game on PC, then picking the same game up on XSS and last but not least pick up my phone and continue gaming there.
Than I'd tell them that all this costs me 12€/month.
Sony-San, we are two generations behind. The time of exclusives is over. We either bend with the wind or we break.

I find it funny that the same day GOG announced that Sony is putting HZD on their store JAST (a niche store for VN) also announced they partnered with ANIPLEX.EXE

And unles something has changed, a hacker took over the main server so anyone who wants to play on it are kicked out, which is the main reason people speculated why the game didn't release together with the reason of EA games.
I sincerely hope they fixed at least that ;)

I kinda wanna get it just so the "collection" is complete, even though I am very unlikely to play - or even install it.

Apex on PS sure is something. I wonder if Origin will ever let you migrate your account and stuff. Right now I have been doing really well on PS5 (PS4 BC)

I am playing on the JPN servers still but I do wonder if this is much more of a casual experience or something. There was this one enemy that I walked up and he was just crouching and maybe after 5 seconds he started shooting. I thought he was AFK or something. I was able to take them down very easily.

As for Titanfall 1 yessssssssssss!!

The Origin bug that I kept complaining about my finally be fixed with this Steam release!!!!!!! So that's nice.



Also TF1 MP > TF2 MP

Alright, the Heavy Moon is awesome Cordelia
It kinda feels like a switch-axe crossed with a greatsword and chainsaw.
I love the step Burst Art that immediately chainsaws into the enemy - and with Lingering Blade or Samsara equipped on it there's damage numbers like no tomorrow, lol :coffee-blob:
I think I'm gonna do some quick excursions to the other weapon types though, I want to unlock more Burst Art effects.

God Eater 3 is fun.
