Why is Windows Store so gooseberry fool? Since installing Gears 4 it's worked fine and I've pretty much played it online everyday.

Worked fine last night but when trying to start the game this morning the splash screen would show then back to desktop and wouldn't start. Tried every fix I could think of and reinstalled the strawberry floating game but now after downloading 109GB it says installed but then throws up an error message about needing to reinstall to fix it which in turn does strawberry float all because after using Microshits Appsdiagnostic troubleshooting app it can't fix the problem of Windows Store cache being corrupt and again no idea how to sort that gooseberry fool out.

This gooseberry fools worse than Uplay :dread:

Windows store is hot garbage. Worst digital storefront I've ever used.

Sure is. Fixed it in the end by downloading it a second time today (218 strawberry floating GB) and it worked this time. Noticed during first download it was showing as 103GB only but went beyond that, 2nd time listed full 109GB.

Some freebies on Steam right now;

Chivalry is free to all (though I am sure most have it) to celebrate their next game Mirage: Arcane Warfare starting its beta. So make sure to add it whilst it is free

Also later today Street Fighter 5, has a week long open Beta of its new online system with all 24 characters available to play.

Sega originally launched an 8-bit Bayonetta on Steam as an April Fools (The same game you can get on Platinum's webpage), but it appears that Bayonetta 1 is possibly getting an actual PC release as well.

Release looks to be in 10 days time,

The link was located in one of the achievements from the 8-bit game.


Could be a double bluff April Fools, but man the internet rage will be real if Sega pull a...well...Sega on this one.

If any of you guys were old school Lucasarts point & click adventure fans, Thimbleweed Park is the game you've been looking for since they stopped making them in 1998 or so. Game is strawberry floating legit.

So I was reading this article today on RPS about this cool looking open-world fps called The Signal from Tölva from creator Jim Rossignol. The game appears to have an art style that's similar to dishonoured or borderlands minus the cel shading outlines with a cool ambient soundtrack. Ian McQue one of the the concept artists who worked on this was also a former assistant art director at Rockstar Games. Looks pretty fun and has that halo, mass effect sci-fi vibe. Combat looks ok and I like the look of the world/exploration. It's out April 10th.

Thought I'd bring it to your attention as it wasn't showing on anyone's steam want list. Worth a look at least.

Now that the Wii U is effectively dead......Bayo 2 PC port maybe on the cards? I would buy both games.

Bayonetta 1 for sure, 2 unlikely. Nintendo basically funded that games development so I very much doubt it'll get anything beyond a port to Switch at some point.

Has anyone got the Win10 gaming update and if so, any noticeable performance improvements?
Yes?

I've been in the preview builds and gaming mode made zero difference. Think I'd even seen a benchmark on some site and it was the same for them, might have been slightly worse performance wise (like 1-2 fps lower than with it off)

Though the new Nvidia driver is giving me a smooth 1060/60fps on Gears 4 with the Ultra preset in both single player and multi :datass:

Finally picked up Cities Skylines. Just went for the base game but looking forward to getting stuck into it.

I've been thinking about building a PC for years, I've changed my mind several times, but now I've come to the conclusion that a desktop just won't suit me. My laptop was reasonably powerful a couple of years ago, but it really can't handle anything new, even on the lowest settings it struggles. I'm in the market for a new laptop that will be able to play modern games at reasonable (medium to high) settings. Would anyone have any recommendations?

Why would a desktop not suit? Not trying to be confrontational, I just think gaming laptops are a terrible investment.

My advice to someone who would ask for a laptop recommendation because a desktop doesn't work for them is almost always "find a way to make a desktop work".

Laptops are a waste of money. After probably around 3 years you'll need to replace it again.

Get a desktop.

I have a desk top (an ancient one) now in my tiny office which doubles as a wardrobe, it's just not a nice place to be. And even if I was to sit in there to play games, my girl friend isn't keen, she'd rather I play games in the sitting room. I know one gets a lot more bang for their buck from a desktop, but laptops have some advantages......

Laptops are gooseberry fool for gaming unless you are prepared to spend about £1,500.
Yes?
