    Red Dead Redemption 2

    The world is just outstanding and if you don't ignore it, it's a looooong fuckin game. There's just sooo much to see and get lost in. It took me about 100~ to clear the main story, mostly soaking it in and dicking around at my own pace. I definitely missed a lot of side shit, and I know some of...

    Nintendo Switch

    Loved Triangle Strategy. But holy fuck is it a slow burn. The plot is utterly glacial at the start and the writing is pretty verbose.

    Rumor: Google Stadia May Be Getting Shut Down

    I ping single digits to some locations and the latency is still enough to be annoying. God have mercy of you look at something with a lot of visual noise, like walking through foliage, because the compression shits itself. I found Assassin's Creed unplayable because of this. It looked absolutely...

    Top 100 Games played on Steam at any given time just suck

    This game was pure crack for several days. It is well worth the price of admission.

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Haha on my first playthrough I was literally clearing entire buildings in a couple clicks, though walls, from across the street. I remember thinking it sucked at first since the damage was shit, and then it gradually ramped up to absolutely insanity. I'd just speed up to gang shit, click a...

    STRAY Cat game Cyberpunk dystopia

    Fortnite explicitly has a shader compilation stage on first launch for this reason. Digital Foundry talked with an engine dev at some point and Epic is definitely aware of the issue, though they expressed that it's not a trivial thing to fix. UE5 has the exact same issue unfortunately.

    The Callisto Protocol (survival/horror)

    I love how, at some point, this game took place in the fucking PUBG universe.

    The EU doing the stuff our regulators are too lazy to do

    I streamed myself programming a few months back and woke up the video blocked and this email: "Our team has reviewed your content, and, unfortunately, we think it violates our spam, deceptive practices and scams policy." Guaranteed that I just tripped some bullshit automated garbage for...

    Riot Games to start recording Valorant voice chats starting July 13

    Brotha, something's wrong here and it's probably not a "they hate him cause he speaks the truth" scenario.

    Red Dead Redemption 2

    I accidentally killed my first horse because I crashed it near a river bank among some rocks. It was angled in such a way that its front half was submerged and its ass was on the rocks. I couldn't get on it or push it out of that position before it drowned. RIP Squire Giddyup.

    Battlefield 2042

    Not surprised it was an unplayable cluster fuck. I'm pretty sure I've seen devs mention in the past that it's been tried internally and wasn't fun. I guess that was true. Battlefield just isn't really built for it in the same way, say, PlanetSide is. Realistically, I'm assuming leadership at...

    Capcom is working on a Resident Evil 4 remake

    Oh man I played the fuck out of Code Veronica. I'd be down for that. Steve was a horrid character though

    Apex Legends Season 13 DX_HUNG

    I've seen similar complaints floating around, I've never gotten one or heard anyone I know complain about it. Do you have anything hooking the game like RTSS or an overlay of some kind?
