    Metro: Exodus

    I jumped on the Xbox Game Pass $1/3 mo promo and installed this the other night. Seems to run fine although I get the stupid "Applying changes" thing every time I start the game, luckily it goes pretty quick on my rig. I have it at 1440p maxed out (hairworks/PhysX on) obviously no RTX though and...

    Xbox game pass PC

    Yep the promo is a no brainer and a good idea to get people on the platform. I like these sub based game services for single player stuff. The reality is I never have time to replay games or play more than 1-2 single player games at a time. As long as the pricing makes sense I'd rather use sub...

    Apex Legends launching monday(titanfall BR)

    Didn't realize Hemlock had single fire, I like that gun, won a couple duos last night with my buddy including one with hemlock winning kill. I really wish duo mode was permanent as I enjoy it more than playing 2 + 1 random if our third buddy can't join. I agree about the R99, what was the...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    There's value in replaying on harder difficulties I guess, but if you explore a bit you end up maxing out your abilities toward the later 1/3rd of the game and there isn't dialog/story branching like you'd find in an RPG. Personally, I never replay games due to limited time so I am actually a...

    The Outer Worlds (New Obsidian RPG)

    So main quest plus a bit of exploring is 25ish hours? Thinking of giving this a shot on Game Pass when I complete Metro Exodus. That's a good length for a single player game for me that I can complete in 4-6ish weeks.

    Metro Exodus is returning to Steam after lengthy Epic Games Store exclusivity

    Hmm that's a bit concerning, wiping my games drive would be annoying as I'd have to copy everything to a mechanical drive and back. How is it possible that as admin in Win 10 Pro you can't delete a directory?

    $1/3 months can't go wrong... Installing now, thanks!

    Apex Legends launching monday(titanfall BR)

    Enjoying Season 4 so far. Like others above, BR/Apex is such a fun game mode when you play with quality people and have actual comms. Random play is really hit or miss. Still maining Caustic as my bros are Path and Lifeline or Wraith. The only other MP game I play is Battlefield V (still fun...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Exactly how I felt about it. I don't get much time to game, and most sessions are maybe an hour, so it was great to pick this up and play a somewhat guided experience that was really polished and executed well. I thought the story was decent and most importnatly it was fun. If you only care...

    Xbox game pass PC

    Can you specify install location of games on Game Pass? I want to give it a shot for a few titles like Metro, but my Windows partition is only 100gb as I install Steam/Origin games to another partition. Edit: you can, but it's janky - you have to set the drive as the default place new apps will...

    Metro Exodus is returning to Steam after lengthy Epic Games Store exclusivity

    How does Xbox Game Pass for PC work? Is it the same as Origin Access Premier for example? Subscription based but you download the game and install/play locally? It's not stupid streaming I hope. Will check the promo out if I can play Metro Exodus on it. I am not going to use the Epic store and I...

    G-SYNC enabled but I still get tearing.

    Been having flawless performance using the NV driver frame limited @ 141, GSync/VSync universal on, in-game Vsync disabled. Asus PG279Q Gsync monitor @ 1440p 144Hz (I don't bother with 165Hz mode as I prefer high detail) and a 1080Ti, latest drivers. Mostly playing Apex, BFV and Star Wars Jedi...

    Half Life: Alyx

    Another comparison would be saying that the optimal experience for any new PC game is SLI RTX 2080Ti with a 4K Gsync 144Hz IPS display etc. etc. Yes, the best hardware enhances the experience but it isn't truly necessary in this case from early reports. I'll be keen to see reviews when the game...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    I beat the story last night and agree, what a great game experience. I clocked 19 hours for main story and 79% world completion. May go back and poke around a bit more but I am satisfied. I ended up paying for two months of Origin Access Premier ($40CAD) and played a few other EA games as well...

    What was your least favorite graphics card?

    Sapphire Radeon 9700 (non-pro) AGP, was my last AMD/ATI card and the build quality on that particular card was just poopy, drivers at the time were not mature, lots of crashes and just generally unplesantness to deal with. I believe I was also trying to do some kind of non-pro to pro bios flash...
