Because "lol pc master race" is hacky gatekeeping rubbish which doesn't paint a good look for new members coming in, plus the discord's used for plenty of console stuff these days

I kind of agree in principle, but PCS is like a tradition, or an institution.

To be honest I do agree; just wasn't sure how to word it myself haha.

I do like PCS as tradition thing however, but we do have new members who are using it (and is making it active too, nice to see. I should at least talk there and post random screenshots...)

Its not really anything to do with master race stuff. Its an old joke from this very forum. I dont think anyone takes it seriously.

Interview with the Campo Santo guys on their shock takeover by Valve.

https://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2018/0 ... ore-541203

There's a giant, dollar shaped elephant in the room here (although it's hinted at in the first response: seems Campo ran out of money making their newest game and needed funding). There's also a really interesting question about Valve's tendency to diffuse teams due to its desks-on-rollers, work on whatever you want structure, which seems to catch the CS guys a bit off guard.

Personal highlight: the lead director of Campo Santo being exciting to move in next to the Artifact guys.

I recently discovered MindNight when trawling through Steam's F2P catalog.

https://store.steampowered.com/app/667870/

It's basically a fast-paced text-chat Werewolf/Mafia with a sick cyberpunk aesthetic. But of course if you have over 5 in your party, you can just do a private game and move the chat to voice on Discord.

You'll all love it. And it's *free* free. Cosmetic-only purchases that have no bearing on gameplay at all.

Town of Salem is the best Mafia game I've ever found, maybe this is good though.

I have the Razer Blackwidow Tournament edition (which means it has no numpad) and it's awesome. It has green Razer switches which I think are the same as MX Blues (they're fairly light and clicky). Has all the function buttons I need and looks really neat. You can also get it with obnoxious LEDs if that's your thing.

I genuinely think I'd really miss a numpad. I've just looked, and there's a version with, but it's £150. :dread:
