In other news, Everspace is amazing. I'm really really enjoying it, the flight controls are a joy, it's a true pc game made with the keyboard and mouse in mind (I haven't tried using a game pad yet). The graphics are phenomenal, when you end up in a system close to a planet that takes up the entire screen it really gives a great sense of scale, I really wish I had a VR headset to use for this game.

The challenge though :dread: this game makes Dark Souls look like a cake walk. When you die you start over, not the level, the entire game. You only get to keep your credits that you can use to upgrade your ship. Still the randomly generated systems are varied enough, and if you really want you have the option to just jump from system to system fairly quickly so it's still very fun.

Purely single player (unless its patched in)

Its FTL but you actually fly the ship.

Apart from Windows 10 and my i5 being just the 6600 it's the same set up. Happy days.

Not going to buy much this summer sale either, I just went for those which had biggest sale prices and that would be Date Wrap, Firewatch and Speedrunners. I think that'll do me, although I do have eye on Tales of games... just if I'm going to buy it I'll have to play it as soon as possible rather than "oh I'll buy this now so I'll save more in long run!" which is bullshit excuse :slol:

Might get Trails in Cold Steel even though it hasn't been reduced that much as i can't see it going cheaper any time soon.

However, with Disgaea 5 soon to be arriving on PC I suspect that'll be occupying most of my time.

Steam Links are a shade under a tenner including postage as well according to Kotaku (on holiday so not currently checking the sale myself).

For the hardware itself yes, but Valve charge £7.40 for delivery ontop of the hardware price.

Still cheaper than any other retailer mind.


Just keep in mind that the Steam Link is a pretty basic device as far as game streaming goes, hence the price tag. It can only do 1080p, no 4K streaming, and the sound is Stereo only, no 5.1 or 7.1. Also it's pretty much required that you connect it to your router via a cable. Using it wirelessly is incredibly laggy.

I actually use it on wifi and it works well, I think they've optimized the software since it first came out. I got one as a birthday present a few years ago but I couldn't use it at all because of the lag, but now it really does work quite well.

That being said, my modem is about 6m from the steam link, so it may also just be because I'm so close.

Mine throws a massive wobble for a few days every January. No idea why! Other than that it's fine, have used it wirelessly and over Homeplugs. I mostly play Civ on it because I can usually only play turn based stuff at the moment due to childcare, but have also played THPS, Portal and Lego Star Wars on it and they all seem to play well (unless it's January, see above). Occasional stream pixellation but totally playable. I want to get Quake Champions or Fortnite on the go on it, to test both it and the Steam controller with a multiplayer twitch shooter.

At ten quid for decent quality game and desktop streaming it's pretty much a must buy in my opinion if you don't have those things done another way. Looks fit as well :datass:

So how's everyone Everspace adventure going?

The furthest I got is right to the start of sector 4 :x
