I enjoyed the world building, but the combat didn't excite me. Still want to give it another go.

Just jumped on Bad Company 2 for the first time in years, still fantastic and DICE haven't managed to top it since. It's £3.74 in the sale at the moment (£6 with the Vietnam DLC) and seems populated enough to get some decent games on the go.

Humble Bundle is going down hill, they don't seem to ever have beat the average to get x, now it's just fixed tiers.

The monthly subscription is very good this month, just picked up The Long Dark, Quantum Break (which is the one I wanted) and Warhammer 40,000 Dawn of War 3 (not played Warhammer 1 - 39,999 previously, do I need to play those first?) for $10.80. Redeemed in Steam and then cancelled immediately so I don't forget. Interested to see how Quantum Break runs on my PC as someone in the Xbox One X topic complained how badly it ran on his i7.

Yes?

Fuckkkkkkksake. Just paid £15 for Quantum Break alone think it was through Steam so could possible get it refunded as I've only played about 10 mins of it..

Runs fine on mine btw except for when I tell Steam it doesn't :shifty:

You probably have a better PC than me. From the quick test I did last night I get mid to high 30s on Ultra so I'm ok with that.

Got the refund and bought the monthly bundle, even gave The Long Dark a go which has been OK so far. Remember with QB to leave the downsamplling (I think its that option) on as the game was designed with that in mind and with it off it immediately half's my framerate to 30 @ 1080p :x

Hah. I'll check later and probably find it is on so I can expect 15fps with it off!

Wasn't quite as bad as I expected, dropped from mid to high 30s to mid 20s with the setting off. Leaving it on and starting back on Ultra, I've settled on just switching the lighting down one setting which improved frame rate from mid 30s to mid 50s. Interesting playing with the settings as most of them can be left on Ultra with no performance impact.

RPS now have an incredibly annoying adblock popup whenever you visit. This follows on from the multiple "This Grandma found the secret of eternal life!" adverts plastered at the bottom of every article, and the interstitial ads that ruin the site on mobile.

Of course, none of this has anything to do with them selling out to The Gamer Network earlier this year. I mean, John "Contrary" Walker said so.

Upgraded my GTX 960 to a 1070 :toot: Setup wasn't too difficult either

...well, except that I spent 10-15 minutes panicking because I thought I'd need an eight pin PCI lead to connect from my PSU, only to realise I could use my six + two split one together <_<

Thats awesome. Might finally get a chance to play Demons Souls. Tried on the PS3 when it came out but it was so visually offensive I couldnt handle it.

Yeah the boost to 4K really helps. Its still a fairly ugly game tho. And honestly if youve played the Dark Souls games, Demons is a strawberry floating cakewalk. But its worth playing it to see the series beginnings.
