    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    IMO, for best to worst: Horizon Zero Dawn Days Gone God of War I'd actually really like a sequel to Days Gone. It could use some refinement but it was overall good. God of War I can take or leave. I'm doing Watch Dogs Legion this weekend.

    Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin

    I made it one hour into the game and gave up due to boredom. It just seemed to tedious. I may give it another go in the future when all DLC is released.

    Senators call for US to follow EU's lead in creating a national standard for phone chargers

    I've had a Samsung USB cable stop working within 2 years, came with my S9.

    Gotham Knights (WB Montreal)

    Yeah unless there is a reason why bigger would be better for this game, I see it as a downside.

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Yeah the last boss sucked. As is the respawning of enemies to heal/save.

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Got 1 hour into Stranger of Paradise: Final Fantasy Origin and thought it was extremely boring. Maybe it gets better but I think I am done with that for now. Ghostwire: Tokyo and either Halo Infinite or Shadow Warrior 2 will be for this week and weekend. SW2 I got free on GOG a while back so...

    Saints Row reboot

    I've removed demos from the game list in EGS before. But I cannot recall how. I did not ever open a ticket.

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    It sold something like 13 million copies in 2 months. Not the greatest game ever, but a strong showing. I am assuming that number is around 20+ million now. I think they'll keep the price up higher.

    Sniper Elite 5

    That is only for aiming as far as I know. Here are 5 screen shots of what it is like to round a corner in this game and essentially all 3rd person shooters. I didn't move my character at all. So as you come around a corner, you will be treated to looking at a wall, or your character's...

    Sniper Elite 5

    I have to say that this game really isn't that good. It is a good reminder of why third person shooters are absolutely horrific. It makes me wonder why the industry hasn't moved on. There is little to zero weapon and body awareness, and SE5 is a good example of it. This is also worse because it...

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    I bought Ready or Not, but not on Steam. CD Keys had it for $28. So far for Steam itself I bought an AC7 MIG-35D plane DLC for $2.49. Their plane DLC is super over priced (IMO) but I had $1.15 in Steam credit. I'd buy all the plane DLC just to support the developers if it was $15 or so. On...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    Heavy Rain had some odd plot holes. And an odd end sequence. The antagonist was good in that I didn't expect him. But the other plot holes were so jarring.

    Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin

    Was hard to find but someone on Reddit pointed me in the right direction. It is under Keyboard/Mouse Settings which is why I missed it. Copy pasting their response for anyone else confused like me:

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    I wish they'd change the respawning enemies in the sequel. A bit more clear navigation could be useful to.

    Stranger of Paradise Final Fantasy Origin

    Is there any reason Xbox controller prompts/hints don't show up in game or in the menu? I can see keyboard/mouse prompts but am using an Xbox controller. The controller itself works fine, but it will show something like E or middle mouse button on a keyboard/mouse.

    The 2022 Steam Summer sale is now live! runs from June 23 to July 7, 2022 10 AM PST

    Remember when the Steam sale threads were pages long? This year Steam didn't even go offline during the start of it. Wondering if Valve can handle higher capacity, or is Steam sales are just that underwhelming now.

    - Far Cry 6 DLC - Sniper Elite 5 - Stranger of Paradise - Final Fantasy Origin Will probably play over the next week.

    Starfield

    A game should be fine and playable out of the box. Occasionally, small mods might make the experience a bit better. But mods are generally supposed offer new things, not make the game play properly. I expect to play a game without mods but if it ends up being a good I may revisit it later with...

    GIGABYTE RTX 3070 8GB Gaming OC $550 with coupon

    GIGABYTE Gaming OC GeForce RTX 3070 8GB GDDR6. Currently $600 with a $50 off coupon: VGAGBET246 Enter coupon during checkout and it is $550 shipped before tax. Is this a hot real? Maybe more like warm, but this is the closest I have seen an RTX 3070 to the $499 MSRP in well over a year. And it...

    Tiny Tina's Wonderlands (Borderlands spinoff)

    I think they realize the die hard fans and must have day 1 people will buy it anywhere. 12% vs 34% is a big difference for those people. Once that period is over it makes a whole lot of sense to put it on the more popular client. Player base = sales for multiplayer games, although this can...

    GPU prices — is the worst behind us ?

    Gigabyte RTX 3070 for $600: Right here. There are other models and other versions from different AIBs but this is the cheapest one overall. Maybe the cooler isn't as good but I'm assuming it is still decent enough. Still more than I paid for my EVGA one 15 months ago but the price is getting...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    I prefer the modern setting. To me it was more unique having a blend of modern and fantasy aspects. Turn based is good for pure strategy games. For action adventure/RPGs, I prefer real time combat instead. I also enjoyed FF7 Remake. I didn't play the original but the game is apparently around...

    Lol evga Notify

    I bought my EVGA card from Amazon, a month or so after I signed up for the notify thing on EVGA. I signed up for the cheapest version, the Black. I ended up getting the XC Ultra (or something like that). I assume EVGA just didn't bother making the Blacks and opted to make the higher end...

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (FF7 Remake Part 2)

    I have no problem with that or people who want to play the originals. But I'm not really interested in playing games from 1997 so I'll just play the remakes.

    Review the game you finished recently.

    Far Cry 6 In the past Far Cry's name has been associated with ground breaking, innovate and well crafted games. Far Cry and Far Cry 3 are widely considered to be some of the best single player FPS games. Although recently Far Cry has become stale, much like everything else Ubisoft does. Far Cry...

    What are you nerds playing this weekend?

    RE2 Remake DLC. I guess I skipped over it, or it was released when I played it originally. So I am playing that over the next night or so.

    Starfield

    Probably best to wait until the game is out. Then maybe a bunch of patches to fix performance issues.

    Crisis Core: Final Fantasy 7 Reunion

    So this seems like it is using the same engine as the original, whatever that was. This is more of a remaster and not a remake built from the ground up apparently (but I may be wrong here). They're adding voice dialogue for all characters/lines though. That explains why it looks a lot more dated...

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (FF7 Remake Part 2)

    It took around a year and a half for Part 1 to come to PC. But I think that was lengthened due to the PS5 port and Intergrade DLC. I am hoping this time it will only be a year. But may with Sony seemingly wanting to shorten the time it takes to bring ports to PC, maybe this will come within 6...

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (FF7 Remake Part 2)

    Final Fantasy VII Rebirth (FF7 Remake Part 2) is coming out winter 2023. Trailer only mentions PS5, so I assume PC gamers will have to wait longer. Essentially confirms this will be a trilogy. More info. I posted this in the PC section because it will almost certainly come out for PC seeing...

    Final Fantasy VII Remake

    So this is a prequel to FF7. The trailer mentions Steam, so I assume a day 1 release on Steam. Hopefully this means FF7R Part 2 goes to PC day 1 as well as Steam. Any reason to not play this before finishing FF7 Remake Parts 2/3 (which are some years away)? Would it contain any spoilers...

    WD Green SN350 2TB NVMe - $155 + Honey

    Lower TBW, only 3 year warranty. I assume slower in real world use. For the price it might be okay, but I think we saw Crucial P5s for $150 recently which should be better than this. If you can get the WD Blues for around $150 I'd rather pay $10 more. But options are always nice, and I assume...

    The Last of Us Part I

    I never played the original be she does look much older. Maybe that is what they originally intended. I hope they do a remastered TLOU 2 for the eventual PC port. Game isn't that old but I assume a bit of an update could be needed as it was a PS4 first game.
