There aren't many sites I pay for ad free versions of, but I subscribe to several Youtube channels on Patreon for the same reason, and so I don't have to feel guilty for adblocking the whole site otherwise.

On the one hand, I really hate that dumb joke.

On the other, weird dating sims are my specialist subject.

Do I play this?

GRstermind needs to be a forum/podcast game.

Anyone still playing Rising Storm 2 Vietnam? This is the second big update they've released since I last played it so I think it's time I jumped back in.

I went back to it a few weeks ago and there was barely anyone playing it and barely any active servers. The servers i did join were jsut runnign custom maps which im not a fan of so i uninstalled it. Honestly i think the game was totally mismanaged. I loved it when it came out, played it for like 20 hours, got bored of the like 4 maps it had, kept hanging on for new maps to be released but they never came. Instead it just got the ANZAC forces added in. Whoopdy gooseberry fool.

Oh really, that sucks. I was really looking forward to jumping back into it as well. Heart broken :cry:

I've steered away from that strata of relatively indie multiplayer games, they burn out far too quickly - i experienced that with Chivalry and a couple of others

I get what you're saying, but I don't really care. For me time is more precious than money. If I drop £20 on a game and get 10 hours of play out of it, that's fine. Not every game has to be Counter-Strike and last forever.

You can probably still get a game, but yeah the population was like a couple hundred players

Sure, the cost/hour ratio works out quite well in that regard. I guess my problem is that i'm not very good, so those 10 hours aren't particularly enjoyable and i'm only starting to get good ok by the time everyone else moves on apart from the highly skilled core.

Yakuza 0 (PC/Steam) - £9.18 with discount code SCHOOLSOUT @ Voidu

Not heard of the retailer myself but they appear on SEGA's approved digital partners list so don't see any reason to be skeptical with purchasing from them.

Having recently completed this game, I can confidently say £9 is an absolute steal and if you're even slightly interested, you should give it a shot. For that price, I might even buy it again just to show support, I'd love for the rest of the series to make its way to PC.

Is anyone here playing Quake Champions? I got it when it was free last month and I'm enjoying it. The dedicated thread here seems dead though...

FFS, just seen that Disgaea 5 won't be released on PC until this autumn.

The game was actually ready in march but was pulled from release due to a "potential security exploit" someone found buried in the game code, how it can take six months to fix is beyond me.

I've been considering a new build for a while now and damn is this tempting.

I'd be quite wary of this little caveat,

8Pack's Instructions and help acheiving these speeds can be found on our forum:


To me that basically says "It doesn't actually come overclocked at the speed it says up there, we'll just tell you how to overclock it yourself, but if you strawberry float it up then you're on your own"

It's a good point and I'm unsure of the quality of the AIO cooler. I was hoping to hold out until later this year at the earliest or next year for Zen 2 but my current rig is showing its age and has had a few issues in recent months. The overall saving seems decent vs buying it all separate but man has it got me conflicted. :lol:

Seeing the prices on GPUs finally coming down has got me twitchy for an upgrade, but I know I should wait for the new 11 series to be released first before pulling the trigger. It's been 4 years since I built my last PC and I think I'm just getting the urge to do another one...
