Did ...did he just insinuate that Path of Exile is 'simple' compared to 'newer' ones ?

 

My guy ...POE is the most complex ARPG out atm. D3 is simplistic in comparison ...though D3 is simple ..but thats besides the point.

POE's biggest failing is its MTX store which puts stash space and 'proper' trading via the stash tabs behind a MTX paywall. Which sucks for those like myself who on principal wont touch MTXs.

 

Oh and DNF ..u didnt even get into the 'actual' game  ..that 'boss' and all before it, was the Duke 'playing' a game in his penthouse whilst being ..'pleasured' by the twins :P

Look DNF wasnt great tbh ..but its fun ..a nice throw back to the 90's. Shame we wont see a Duke NUkem game again ...infact its probably a good thing, last thing any wants to see is a 'Woke' Duke, which u know would be the case nowadays.

It's funny how I'm shopping now for a 2TB SSD to fit my games yet I don't even have three dozen in my library. I suppose I could buy more but they will just be newer versions of what I already own. How far can a game be tweaked that you already enjoy?

 

Coincidentally, was this video done just because the Steam summer sale is happening right now? Yeah, there are some good bargains out there.

You got to play Inside. That game is super messed up and super cool. Its cell shaded graphics give special feel and the theme of it is really creepy and weird. And one cool thing about the game, all the sounds are recorded as if they were played inside your head, but you hear it externally. It gives the game a really distinct audio profile. It's like Tomb Raider meets original Prince of Persia meets parallel universe Nazi Germany with weird ass aliens. Your deaths are also really cruel, like those men in the beginning chasing you and then strangling you to death. Like, w00t. It's one of the best indie games I've ever played. Ending was not quite what I've expected, but as a whole it was a very unique experience.

Could be either, but I'm leaning towards coincidence more than anything. I have looked at the steam sale, most items are on their "regular" discounted prices from the past, only sweet deal I have seen is the x amount off after x spent banner, and that is hardly a worthwhile thing to tempt me to buy a few games, even tho I do have the money in my steam wallet (from a refund) to cover the bulk of the transaction.

 

If you have suggestions do tell lol. Currently due to the world wide situation I can't really justify buying games that exceed my wallet with normal "discounted sale" pricing, even tho I can afford it, because tomorrow can change all that.

When Linus said on some Livestream that we wouldn't record in 60 frames on his main channel, and I am so happy he did a video on 60 frames. (The video where he plays every steam game he didn't play) I was like why is this so smooth this tv doesn't have motion smoothing and then I saw video information and 1920x1080(60) I was like omgggggggg yes

But he probably won't do 60 frames anymore just like what he did with HDR

People say eyes can't see more than 24fps yet everyone complains 60fps looks like "soap opera". I guess you do see more than 24fps, it's just that people aren't used to it, they hate it, even though it's a smoother, superior way of watching video content.

GTA V is going for $15 so I might pick that up since I don't have it yet. I'm also looking at the Dirt 4 bundle, X-Plane 11, The Crew 2. Waiting for PGA Tour 2K21 but that's coming later in the year - I can't believe nobody's done a decent golf game for the PC since Tiger Woods and EA had their fallout.

 

Playing The Crew 2 demo now and I like it. Sadly I can't run the original The Crew since my rig crashed while in-game a while ago and now it doesn't start. I'm thinking my profile got corrupted because it's not a Direct X, MS .NET game install or missing file issue. I will have to wipe the original folder and try reinstalling it later which is a shame because I spent easily over 200 hours in the game and have probably 30+ cars tweaked, all the missions completed and the add-on packs for it as well. Ubisoft support is unhelpful and useless.

Yea, I paid $47 cad for GTA 5 in 2016, the current price is insane considering the Online aspect is still popular. However I would play the storyline and avoid online mostly because of the bad modders, there are good ones and ones that generally leave you alone and wreak havoc on NPCs. Dirt 4 was actually in the Just Drive bundle back in March but I've yet to activate it, I like the games but my controller needs to be replaced which is why I haven't activated it yet.

 

Personally I've given up on flight simulators, most are broken and unrealistic. If you want to try a flight sim try https://www.flightgear.org/ it's free and relatively good, played it when I ran Ubuntu 10ish years ago, only issue I had was taking off community thought it was a wind setting, and likely will reinstall it on the Ryzen when I get time to download it again. I've not played any golf game less tycoons and the mini game inside GTA 5 lol... Tho I guess if there is a good game on steam for cheap I can try playing one 🙄

 

For The Crew find the save file location and preserve it, it might even have a backup save file renamed somewhere locally as well, plus you might be able to edit the new save to the point to regain your old stuff(try loading it into Notepad++). I would like to buy the Crew 2 but less playing the story mode portion of it is worth it (which doesn't seem to exist with 100% online), online mode has had issues in the past based on videos I've watched. I can't help but think the Crew 2s $30 gold price is still overpriced.

 

Also saw SIMs 4 is on Steam $20 for the base game is still pricey esp once you look at the DLC prices. Also there is Satisfactory (made by goat sim people) which looks interesting to me anyways, so I think I'll buy it and try it out.

 

Edit: Forgot the 6 dollar coupon if I spent $5 more oh well lol...

You, sir, are a genius!

 

I began poking around my C drive (not the drive where I keep the games installed) and found a folder with The Crew name located in Users\Username\My Documents of all places. Rather than look for a file I just relocated the entire folder (deleted it from it's location). I fired up the game and lo-and-behold it ran... properly. My profile remained intact with all the cars/progress as I had left it since the last session.

 

The only difference I see between the folder I moved and the one the game recreated now is a file ending in .wsm. Uplay syncs the game profile/progress with your account so that information is stored on their end. What looks like what happened is the damn configuration file got borked - something that is stored on the local drive. I had to reset the keyboard assignments and graphics settings in the game settings but other than that I now have my game back after a long hiatus.

 

Big thanks for the tip 👍👍 I still cannot believe how Ubisoft support on their part failed to identify this issue.
