As someone who played DoD:S for hundreds and hundreds of hours, I hated what I played of Day of Infamy. It felt like it didn't know wether it wanted to be DoD or Red Orchestra and wound up worse than either.

That's what I like about it. It's not as fast paced as DoD and not as focused on realism as RO. It has basically the same combat as Insurgency (though I only played it when it was a mod), but I always thought Insurgency was held back by poor map design. This opens things up a bit which makes it a lot better, plus I prefer the WWII setting.

Man, Soma is turning out to be a bit shite. I'm a bit disappointed, as all I've heard is good things.

What is there not to like about examining objects when only about 3% of them have any purpose?

The game is really just a story and when you've finished it and look back will think it is quite good. I should imagine this story would work brilliantly as a VR game.

Yes?

Soma really is just all about the story. I was disappointed at first too but push through and it gets better and better with an incredible ending

The monsters are gooseberry fool, the atmosphere and story are amazing. There's a "cowardly" mod out there that let's you turn off all the aggression from the monsters which would make the whole thing ten times better. The ending is amongst the best I've ever sat through and is well worth pushing on to.

Got sick of losing at Overwatch so bought myself a G502 mouse and a £14 mousemat. Now I will be unbeatable.

Hi guys. I'm looking for a recommendation for a good gaming monitor, which I will be using with my PS4.

Only needs to be about 24"; the main thing is it needs to be fast, have good colour performance and, ideally, be cheap.

I am pretty hyped for the new IntelliMouse, I hope it's as high build quality as the first.

Took delivery of my Logitech G502 mouse yesterday and good god damn it's lovely.

Image

The hand feel is excruciatingly comfortable, like pushing a ball of felt around a cloud, and I don't know what they've done to this sensor but it feels more of extension of my arm than my fat, lumpen hand ever did.

Highly recommended 10/10.

There is one thing that annoys me about Logi mice, they seem to last for ages and you have a hard time to justify an upgrade.

My Logitech mouse has just started playing up and it's only a few months old. The left button keeps acting like the right (i.e. bring up right-click menus) or it acts like you've double-clicked when you've only clicked once. Pretty irritating, so going to see if I can get a new one under warranty.

I wish they'd bring back the notebook optical 3000 while they're at it, was cheap but perfect for my claw like hands (I can't fully straighten my fingers).

I still use it now and can't find anything else to replace it, none of the currently available mice of that type have actual proper buttons, they all have the sort which are part of the outer casing and require too much force to press.

Yup, the G502 is replacing a G9 I've had for coming on 7 years now.

Steam key for Civilization III is currently free from the Humble Store for another day and 21 hours. Hurry, hurry, hurry. Or wait until tomorrow if you prefer.

Started playing Wizardry 8 when this little ad cropped up:
