Isn't that just a case of poor optimization?

I think it'd do devs good to have longer hardware cycles, it'd be like the good old days when they had to squeeze every last bit of power from limited hardware rather than simply waiting for the yearly new GPU releases to come along and force gamers to continually upgrade.

True you don't want hardware cycles to be too quick, but my GTX 970 is approaching four years old and we've only had a single new generation since then. As someone who likes to upgrade on an "every other generation" cycle it's starting to get very drawn out!

I am trying the new Steam Beta, the chat is so much like Discord it is almost plagiarism. However that is a very good thing as is a huge upgrade over the current one. Really impressed so far, there are still a few bugs, however big thumbs up from me.
That said one of my friends is livid that the size of the text window is far larger than it used to be.

The Chat really does not fit in with the rest of the old steam client so it looks quite out of place. Hopefully it is not too long until they roll out the whole thing, it has been far too long with this old client.

On top of that I know that there are publisher pages coming to the store perhaps as soon as next week (possibly for the steam sale) I hope they also go further and add franchise pages too.

I switched on the beta then promptly back off again. It's too in your face. Steam chat just now is good because it's so basic, and that's all I need it for. Discord is good for voice chat, but I can't be arsed with all the other pish.

I wouldn't say optimisation is the issue, just the fact that as flight sims you have a lot of systems as well as weather processing ect to deal with.

Haven't used Steam chat in years. Never used discord either. It's they're anything else new in the beta?

I gave this a try and it runs well on my relatively outdated PC - I stumped for the gold edition which is also heavily discounted too, guess that was their plan all along. Even though i've been getting battered, I can see why it's fun although the overarching war metagame thing still eludes me.

Never pre-order or pre-purchase a console, game or season pass.

Just found out Disgaea 5 is getting a PC release, unfortunately they've delayed it to fix a game breaking bug.

If I stop posting later on this year, you'll know why.

Would you rather they just released it with said game breaking bug? :lol:

No, but the delay is still annoying.

At least they've bothered to fix it.

I've played Disgaea 5 on Switch... it's great fun! There seems to be tons of depth to the game, too - I've only scratched the surface.

Thats not like you Jawa, you usually rinse a game of everything you possibly can before moving on, what about Disgaea made you want to just move on like that?

It's cool and quirky, Rax - good fun and a big challenge for folk who are into turn-based strategic battling. I liked what I played but I only dipped my toes in; it's a game that I'll need to go back to for a proper play-through :) .

I completely forgot about Wreckfest, but they finally released its final version this week. Its...actually strawberry floating great? Like its totally not the kind of racing game you take seriously, especially in multiplayer, as its just strawberry floating carnage, but its bloody hilarious



my game crashed in this race but the start of it was so chaotic I had to upload it. (the audio was gone from the video too so I just stuck some of the destruction derby 2 soundtrack over it)
