Well I'm out of touch. Still what a shitty thing to happen to a guy.

Just watching the AMD E3 coverage and so far seems pretty decent (salt included). No 16 core mentioned so far.

Navi while a step in the right direction I doubt I would get it till some better cards come out.

It looks like they will be shilling the xbox game pass with certain amd cpu's and graphics cards.

The 16 core 3950X is a bit pricey at $750. Waiting on the benchies.

For those with Mac:

Aspyr ends 32-bit Mac game sales in shift to 64-bit support only

Game publisher Aspyr is ceasing sale of its 32-bit Mac game catalog on Tuesday, with Monday being the last day the company was offering the titles for purchase, citing Apple's shift of macOS to 64-bit and end of support for 32-bit as the reason for the change.

Apple has warned for some time that it was discontinuing support for 32-bit applications in macOS, with the recently-revealed macOS Catalina 10.15 being the first version of the operating system to work with just 64-bit apps. High Sierra was the last to support 32-bit apps fully, while the current macOS Mojave will be the last to support 32-bit applications at all.

Due to the change, Aspyr has confirmed it too is ending support for 32-bit applications for future operating systems. From Tuesday onwards, Aspyr's remaining 32-bit Mac library will become 64-bit or receive a 64-bit update by September, in time for macOS Catalina's public release.

"Once Apple announced it was discontinuing support for 32-bit titles, we decided ending sales for those games was the right thing to do, and well before Apple's support ends later this year," said Aspyr vice president of publishing Elizabeth Howard. "Giving players fun, innovative games across all platforms is our focus, and we have some exciting new projects that we will reveal very soon."

The company has published a complete list of 32-bit games that will be removed in its support pages. Its complete game library is 190 games in size, with many already 64-bit compatible or will be in the future.

The list of games being removed includes "Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel," five "Call of Duty" titles, "Civilization IV" and "Colonization," "Duke Nukem Forever," four "Star Wars" games, and a selection of others.

Aspyr advises players can continue to enjoy the 32-bit titles if they don't upgrade to macOS Catalina, while those who use Steam can take advantage of SteamPlay to play their games on other platforms that do support 32-bit software.

Alpha Protocol is coming off Steam due to rights issues (no doubt to do with Microsoft buying Obsidian). If you haven't played it, it'll remain playable/downloadable on Steam if you've bought it and it's available for £2.50 below:

You could also gooseberry fool on your hands and clap for a similarly good time.

It's not for everyone, but I played through the first chapter last night and the shooting has aged better than I would have thought. Even at this point the amount your choices change the game is mindboggling.

For anyone with an ounce of interest in game design it's a must play.

I really need to play through it again. I only played it once way back when it first came out, think I rented it from Lovefilm or Boomerang for the 360. I've got the PC version from a humble bundle or something and it's been so long I can barely remember a thing about it, besides the ability to make your character a complete and utter dickhead to everyone he meets :slol:

Nearly everything onmine is reduced but most not by enough to make me buy them.

Sadly Octopath Traveller is still full price at £49.99.

Steam sales are practically a non-event now.
You can often get keys from third party key sellers for cheaper than steam sale prices at almost any time.

They're still worth keeping an eye on as you can still get the odd bargain, but it's nothing like the way it was just a few years back.

Also I miss the flash sales.

Grabbed The Talos Principle for just shy of a fiver and The Turing Test for £3. That'll probably do me for a while.

Just spent £60 on five games that I've had on my wishlist for a while.

Baba is you
Parkitect
Mutant Year Zero - requested refund as the controls are impossible for me.
Thronebreaker: The Witcher Tales
Islanders

That ought to last me a while.

I picked this up as well and the controls are not what I was expecting at all. Not sure what it's like with a controller. What's the most suitable input mode for you?

Might be a few hours until the NDAs end, at a guess either 1430 or 1800.
