Re: The Videogames Tab

None of the campaigns in the previous games have been that long either, but as the maps are designed to be played multiple times it's never really been a problem. ;)

Re: The Videogames Tab

I bought Hitman III and there really isn't that much to say about it. If you're a fan of the previous two games you'll like this one because it's more of the same - intricately designed maps, almost...

Re: Happy Birthday, Tacitus!

Last big game on any platform I saw this much written about was Arkham Knight on PC, and that would have accounted for a small percentage of their sales

I think it's very much GTA, but GTA 3. I don't think I've seen such specific examples of open world jank in a big game since then, like when parking your car and causing a 3 mile pile up behind you...

Re: The Videogames Tab

My take on all the Cyberpunk noise is that it's an ambitious (in the tech sense, not in any way stylistically or thematically), buggy game with a world and characters that the writing team didn't...

Re: The Videogames Tab

The slight ambivalence I have toward 2077 surprises me. I loved the three Witcher games and the game's setting should be right up my ally - I'll definitely buy it, probably day 1, but a big part of...

One thing I'd say about updating a motherboard BIOS - Unless there's a security flaw in the BIOS you're using or a new feature has been released on a new version, personally I'd leave it alone.

Control has been in my backlog for a while now, but I've decided not to touch it (I bought it in a PSN sale a few months ago) until the PS5 update gets released. It seems to run fine on the new...

Yep linear is smooth. The different actions of mechanical switches are indicated by their colour, so you'll see keyboards advertised with 'red switches', 'blue switches' etc. The most common are red,...

If you're on a budget, there are a lot of tenkeyless mechanical keyboards (not many with normal switches) on sites like Amazon for not a lot of money. The keys themselves won't be the Cherry brand...

I've got a Coolermaster Quickfire TK with Brown mechanical switches - the brown switches aren't clicky and have a little 'bump' when you press them when you'd expect a click. I prefer them to the...

Honestly, if you're not getting yourself into a financial hole buying the thing, the console is worth it for the improved performance on PS4 games alone.

Re: The Videogames Tab

My most played game on the PS5 so far? No Man's flippin Sky :D

What they've done with the upgrade is seriously impressive - Visuals are on a par with a top line PC and a solid 4k/60fps.

Yep, I'm pretty much the same on AC. Loved the game to bits but I'm going back less and less now, even though the live aspect of it is still in full swing. Still. 400 hours ain't bad :D

Best one I've heard of is the Hori Switch Pad. It's a bit of a unit (and doesn't have vibration or motion sensing) but I know a couple of people who have it and they really like it.

Re: Gaming your Machine

Unfortunately it means a new CPU and some DDR4 RAM, unless your old mobo is the same architecture.

I'm probably ducking out of the PC arms race until TES VI comes out :D

Hitman 2016 (aka the best game of the current generation) and the 3 Shadowrun rpgs are free on the Epic store until tomorrow. Pick them up. ;)

Also Crusader Kings 3 is on Game Pass. :up:
