    The Ascent (Cyberpunk ARPG)

    Anyone know the current state of this game on PC? Have the bug been ironed out? Looks fun and would like to play co-op, ray tracing etc. but if there's a risk of broken save games at 12h in that is a deal breaker for me.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Shredder's Revenge

    Played through maybe 3 or 4 stages on the weekend with friends online co-op, was super fun and lots of nostalgia, worth the $25CAD on Steam. One annoying thing is since one friend was on Xbox Game Pass with us being on Steam, we had to waste 15min figuring out how to party together: the answer...

    Mass Effect Legendary Edition

    Mass Effect is one of my favourite series, and so I am a few hours into replaying ME1 in the Legendary Edition. Definitely feelings of nostalgia when you get to the Citadel for the first time. Game definitely shows its age in terms of UI, explorable areas and some of the writing, but it is also...

    Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

    Yeah I remember the hitches being annoying, kind of crazy they happen on a 5800X/3090 too haha. But like you say, the actual gameplay experience, level design, sound design and overall presentation is so well done it's just a fun engaging game.

    This. I don't have time to mess around with mods, I think a (mostly) unbuggy and quality single player experience for 1 maybe 2 playthroughs. FWIW I played through Cyberpunk at launch and loved it despite a handful of minor annoyances.

    Apex Legends Season 13 DX_HUNG

    Was getting these a bunch last week/weekend but can't recall getting one at all in the last few days. Super frustrating to get these DXDIAG crashes when playing ranked... I'm with the majority that Respawn went too far on changes to ranked. Previously was a Diamond-4 player (PC), slowly working...

    Cyberpunk 2077: Night City Wire premieres June 25

    Looking forward to the expansion, should be lots of fun.

    Horizon Zero Dawn (Official Discussion Thread)

    Limited time really. I only did the main story for HZD. Last game I went somewhat completionist was 2077 and before that Witcher.

    Battlefield 2042

    Looks like there was a jump in players after the patch for a week or so and now it's back down under 2k peak concurrent on Steam. The new season of Apex releasing this week probably not helping matters. Game has to be considered dead now, what an embarrassment for DICE/EA.

    Star Citizen - media blowout, Chris Robert's new game

    Hahaha. Thought it was April 1 again for a minute. Imagine spending more than 1 person-day of dev time on this, instead of just doing whatever other games already do.

    Metro: Exodus

    Finally completed the game after not playing for a few weeks.

    Battlefield 2042

    I can't believe they never added in an auto team balance to BFV (especially since it existed in prior BF games). At least they have squad VOIP in BFV even if it's rarely used. 2042 down to 2,000-2,800 players on Steam the past few days, looks effectively dead to me. Sad about it, was planning on...

    Cyberpunk 2077 "Soft Relaunch" Q1 2022

    Agree with this. I was massively hyped for the game and while it was a letdown from the hype, it was still fantastic (played on PC with RTX 3080). Very enjoyable mainquest and sidequest plotlines. I didn't bother with random encounters/task type quests and I had an awesome time playing it...

    Battlefield 2042

    Honestly it just feels sad now, not even like "yeah screw you EA/DICE for sucking" but that this could be the end of the BF franchise as far as AAA level investment. 4-6k avg players on Steam this soon after release is an absurdly epic fail. Apex on Steam is still growing, avg players 145k for...

    Star Wars Jedi: Survivor (Fallen Order sequel)

    Thanks! I played it via a promo month on whatever EA Play was called in 2019 but haven't been able to do any more playthroughs since I unsubscribed after promo pricing ended. I loved it, really enjoyed the gameplay, graphics, atmosphere etc.

    Battlefield 2042

    Yep. Eliminating community servers prevents any organic communities from forming. You are just playing against/with random people every single session (besides pre-made squadmates). Add in zero VOIP and it's just so disengaging.

    Battlefield 2042

    Thanks, following now. Haven't played Tarkov, watched a bit on Twitch and it looks interesting but not sure I have the time/patience to learn it. I mostly play Apex Legends and BFV for online shooters these days and some CSGO. Was mostly curious if Hazard Zone was a success and it sounds like...

    Metro: Exodus

    I've been working my way through the enhanced edition and wow, the raytracing is insanely impressive and immersive. Previously, I'd rate Cyberpunk as the most impressive graphics I've seen although my RT title exposure has been limited. Like others in the thread, I spend time wandering around...

    Battlefield 2042

    So it sounds like no progress has been made in improving the BF2042 experience since launch? I'm a BF fan back to BC2 with BF3/4 probably being my favourite, but I massively enjoyed BC2, BF1 and still play BFV (despite the negative reviews of that game). I played the 2042 beta and it was...

    Cyberpunk 2077 "Soft Relaunch" Q1 2022

    It does seem like the last gen (especially PS4) port was the number one issue from a PR perspective. I should've said I played the first 8 hours or so on my 1080 Ti (still a very high end card) and it played great without any real bugs. shark - I rank the game highly as well, my personal gold...

    God of War (Confirmed) - Official Thread

    Haven't played any GOW series games, but after watching Digital Foundry's video on it and how much fun I had playing Horizon Zero Dawn on PC, I will be buying this once I am done with Metro Exodus. Stoked that Xbox controller support is included as I have one of those and would rather use it...

    Cyberpunk 2077 "Soft Relaunch" Q1 2022

    I played through CP2077 once upon release and absolutely loved it (despite recognizing the major flaws). I never had any real bugs (other than floating items a few times) and the graphics are amazing on a 3080. I hope to see some real expansions for the game, it sucks so many people had issues...

    Battlefield 2042

    Came to this thread to answer the question of buy now or wait for first sale (and months of patches), looks like the answer is wait. I waited for BFV until 50% off and am still enjoying playing it this day. I did find the graphics in 2042 open beta to feel really bland. Explosions were great but...

    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?

    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...

    Should I go 1440p?

    1440p especially if it means going up from 24 in to 27 in display is an advantage in FPS. Sharper image, physically bigger screen and some kind of adaptive refresh technology all combine to make it way easier to see/hit opponents. I don't play PUBG so can't help with performance, but I find Apex...
