But when is Valheim going to see a sale … that seems semi-open world.


That would make me buy it in a hot second, but it's already only $20 and still in early access selling like crazy. We can dream but prepare to wait

05-13-2021:
 
Resident Evil 7 (Steam/PC).
 
Finished-up the Campaign for RE7 (base-game). Some thoughts, after spending around 15.3 hours with it in total, according to Steam.
While I didn't mention performance before, I really should mention both performance & graphics quality here. This game was easily running at 1080p at 240fps, which I didn't need - so I capped it and was running maxed-out at 120fps. It never budged below 120fps, running like an absolute top.

...


I remember that you recently got a pretty boss rig, but you always mention playing at 1080. Do you have an older monitor or is there some other reason you don't use 1440?

The winners are Bryson and ToddManG.  Congrats!  I'll be sending a PM requesting which game you want.


Woohoo! Thanks Bloomy! I've been playing and digging RE7 on Gamepass lately so this is even more awesome. Great giveaway, I really appreciate it!

Freedom Cry isn’t considered DLC?

Does buying the ps4 version and never playing it count as a sacrifice? If so, sacrifice!

Honestly, the only thing they can do to compete is to bundle PS Now with PS Plus and make it the same price as Game Pass Ultimate. 
 
MS is losing money on all the services they are bundling in combined with licensing, and Sony probably can't afford to do the same.


Bundling them together would (at msrp) still be $60 cheaper than GPU per year. Using the frequent discounts found you can do PSNow+ for ~$65 per year which sounds about right to me for the value.

I was able to snag the new midnight black 6800xt from AMD this morning and now I'm on the fence about what to do with it.

I'd love to keep it and but it would require a whole system rebuild at this point. My i5 2550k is already a bottleneck for my 1060, I'd hate to waste the performance of anything better.

Then the devil appears on my shoulder and searches completed auctions on eBay, coming back at 1200-1500. That's hard to turn down and would help with new system costs (if gpus ever return to earth).

If I do decide to keep it what's a good mid range processor to pair with it? I've heard good things about the 10700k and 3700 ryzen but I haven't done much research

Watch Dogs: Legion.

 

 

I played a bit of it too (not as much as you I think) but it just didn't hook me.  To me it felt like the whole game was just a series of side missions.  Like literally everything I did felt the same and could be approached in the same way.  It didn't matter if it was a main mission, actual side mission, recruitment, exploring, whatever.  It was all samey samey.  That wore me down pretty quick.  Like a long list of things to do but nothing felt important.

 

London is beautiful though and you can tell they did a lot of work making the city seem real.  Possibly too real though - the roads are very confusing and curvy throughout and i feel like i made my way onto the bridges (when i actually could) by blind luck.  There's a ton of cars to drive around but you're constantly swerving around tiny alleys and making sharp turns so i found it easier to use a little scooter most of the time.  You can't get up to speed in a car for very long without slamming into a pedestrian and getting the cops following you anyway.

 

By the end of my playtime i was calling my supply drone and riding that above the buildings across the city just to avoid the (beautiful) chaos below, negating one of the more positive aspects of the game.  I might pick it up when it inevitably hits the $10 mark but that's about as far as i'd go.
 




#14387456 Watch Dogs Legion (all consoles) - $19.99 at Target

Posted by ToddManG on 28 March 2021 - 11:17 PM

Worth 20?


Eh, it's OK. That's really the most I can say about it. I didn't dislike the time I spent playing it but I never really felt compelled to keep playing for more than like 30 minutes. It feels like a long list of things to do and not much of a game.

20 isn't much, but it's more of a 10-15 for me.

How can I fix my controller to connect to my One X?I can turn the console on with controller but then it won't register any button inputs.


Doing a full shutdown (hold the button on the console) worked for me. I've seen others say wiring the controller helps but I had no luck with that.
