Meh, a game of Spy vs Spy with my brother would do. I wonder if it would make more sense now, when I am double digits old.

I also loved this game... even though it made no sense to me.

 

Also there was a ninja turtles game that was top down(until you entered the sewers) that I played so much as a kid...   replayed it as an adult, beat the first level, then realized I never got that far as a kid....  though to be fair even as a group of 5 adults we only got to the third level once

I won't say Streumon delivered good games, but the trailer is fun at least.

It looks to be just what I want in the 40k universe though, I doubt it'd be qualitative in any way but I'm probably still buying it.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken

Are we getting a new Judgment game?

If so, I hope they differentiate it more from the Yakuza games. Judgment was, for all intents and purposes, a traditional Yakuza game with some superficial "detective" stuff tacked on. I like beating thugs up with bicycles as much as the next guy, maybe more, but I'd like Yagami to do more actual detective work and less beating fools with bicycles in a sequel.

That does look good, interesting to see the main objective is about reuniting with a lost love

I just hope the characters are not   English. I am use to playing games like this with people speaking English with a Russian\East European accent like Metro so that has become normal to me and what I am use to with these types of post-apocalyptic  games

NieR Replicant ver.1.22474487139... has been released on PC. Judging by Steam reviews, the port is quite bad (animations are bound to FPS and FPS are unstable, the controls are unrebindable). A pity, but it was to be expected.

Seriously? Again the same story as with Automata? Some companies just hate PC I guess. 

After looking at comments it seems the framerate has to be capped at 60. But the game doesn't have that setting so you have to do this in your GPU control panel. Funny, really funny. 

Then I will wait for someone to make a fix like with automata and some discount. No point in buying crappy port for a full price.

lol, it's 2021, console architecture is as close to the pc as never before, and they sill don't give a damn and throw out crappy ports. Incredible.

Not necessarily about that game in the video at all, but sometimes I wonder how often at least things like stuttering, crashes, general performance issues have to do with Windows version (updates).  :P  Like a recent one was doing/did, and past ones.  eg, I'm so glad I'm not a programmer. Drivers, configs, hardware, updates every month or three that changes stuff, what a headache.

I often feel like I don't have most game issues people report on forums but then I remember I haven't updated Windows in like 1.5 years or whatever.  :P

They've rolled back that update now. Guess someone has to act as beta testers for MS though I too am glad it's other people rather than me.

Microsoft actually rolled it back? interesting.
I'm sure I'll update (some) things on Win10 eventually. Maybe. I never did get SP3 on XP....I still wonder if MS is really going to stick with updating/altering Win10 forever or if 10 years from now they'll finally go "Well, here's Win20 now!"

Games are the main reason I use Windows.  Most other uses, I suspect I'd think any ol' O/S would likely work, since I don't do anything all that techie if you know what I mean.

Not even for games.

Proton has been a Godsend to weirdos, like myself, that game on Linux, which is why, when everything else is equal, I will give my money to Valve rather than anyone else who runs a storefront. It's still not as out of the box plug and play friendly as Windows for brand new games... Although given the state that games release in these days that make me question what exactly is the difference between early access and a full release, I don't know that anyone gets a smooth plug and play experience on PC, or even consoles for that matter, at launch. :unsure:

They've (finally) got a system for rolling back specific bits of a big update 'automatically'; 'Known Issue Rollback'. No idea why it's taken them seemingly decades to get to that point when it would seem to be a pretty basic requirement.

Given the problems with Win10 and automatic updates I'm very glad I ended up with the corporate Windows 7 Ultimate that I did rather than a consumer edition since the win10 pro only tries to force you to update after about a year of beta testing by the consumer arm.

Next Troubleshooter: Abandoned Children content update scheduled for May 4th at 5 p.m. (GMT + 9)

I think that will conclude the White Lion and Black Witch DLC.

Interesting re: Proton.  Maybe I'll look into it when I have to build a new rig in 4-8 years from now.

Outside of a few minor annoyances, I've generally found Win10 to be nothing terrible tho - as long as I can control when/what I update - but again I largely stopped using the PC for much of anything outside of media/gaming - edit: and want the easiest/laziest to use - so mostly I just don't care, probably. MS could still do something in the future to tick me off enough, tho.

I hacked the Mac OSX onto a SSD in my windows machine so I could use it for my job, it works okay.  I considered going straight Linux, but a few of the programs I need for work don't run on it period :( Fingers crossed someday, would love to escape Mac and Windows.
