Do visual novels count as having sprite art? I suppose they aren't really games, so technically that's fine.

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

I have a headache and my blood pressure is up just from looking at the screenshots.

Can't be a bad game if it's not a game.

Looking through my Steam library, this just seems needlessly limiting to me!

I love a well made sprite based indie game. It's like having the greatest megadrive game that has none of that system's limitations.

You're missing out on some great games then.

I do however agree there's so much utter gooseberry fool being churned out on Steam that finding said great games is like finding a needle in a haystack.

And the Switch eShop is rapidly going the same way.

They seem to be longer than one hour.

I've misread "Flash deals every hour" as meaning they're all only 1 hour long. :fp:

Dragon Age is almost up already though, and they only sent the mail about an hour ago, though.

Edit: not Dragon Age, Shadow tactics

I'll instantly buy The Last Express if it's discounted in five minutes. Watch, you can't stop me.

Any news on which brand/model is going to be the best to go for in the RTX world yet?

It currently looks like I might be getting some kind of bonus at work toward the end of the year so if I'm going to blow it on something ridiculous like a 2080Ti then I want to make sure I get the right one, I've been really impressed with the MSI GTX970 Twin Frozr I bought when I last upgraded as it has ticked all the boxes for me - it was a great price, overclocked really well, and had a really great cooling setup whereby it was silent for normal desktop activity and still very quiet even when it did spin up faster!

I've used MSI since the 6 series and they've always been great.

At those prices I think I will hang onto my GTX1070 a while longer. Besides, I'm guessing it will take a couple of years and the release of next gen consoles before ray-casting becomes a common feature in most games so I will wait until the next generation of cards comes out.

Yeah, same here. My 1070 still runs most games on Ultra at 1080, and v high at 1440.

No doubt I'll pick up a 2070 at some point in the future though, especially when Cyberpunk releases

I'm just hoping that the 10 series cards come down in price once the 20s release. I'm dying to upgrade, but really can't justify the current cost of one.

Yeah, the price retention has been insane this generation thanks to strawberry floating bitcoin and the like. The price of my 1070 actually went up by £100 at one point, then settled at about £30 more than I bought it for in April 2016. Which is crazy.

Interesting that the 20 series is launching at a higher equivalent price point this time round though. NVidia cashing in on that sweet, sweet cryptocurrency currency.

I can't wait until the whole cryptocurrency thing fizzles out, they shouldn't have any legitimacy as they are essentially used to fund criminal activity - yes I'm sure some people use bitcoins for perfectly legal purposes but the fact that they're untraceable makes them ideal for drug dealers, peados and people traffickers to do business online.

Went slightly off topic there but felt the need to rant.

Just did a partial new build today because my water cooler leaked everywhere and fried my mobo and RAM.

Switched to a Ryzen 2700X, Asus X470-I and some less water infused Corsair LPX RAM. I also built a case from scratch to house it all. It's a very small 20 X 20 X an undisclosed height that will be somewhere around 35ish cm. I've finished the frame but need to work on the actual casing.

I'm sticking with air this time because strawberry float water, so it'll be interesting to see what kinds of temps I get in such a small space once it is clad.

In reaction to their exposure as a sexist shithole of a company, Riot Games have reacted by:

- Firing two staff over their signal boosting of the internal problems at Riot
- Today, announced the hiring of a former Uber executive to battle sexism

https://www.polygon.com/2018/9/12/17850 ... ce=twitter

Yup! Because if this woman was good enough for the Most Sexist Shithole in Silicon Valley, she's more than good enough for the Most Sexist Shithole in gaming!

Utter nonsense, and a pure box checking exercise.
