It's a GTX 980. I've redone the thermal paste recently which did drop temps by 5C or so, but even then with case fans doing their thing (proper airflow in a decent case) the GPU just gets too fucking hot when I'm playing newer games. I should've changed the cooler on it years ago but it's so close to obsolete now I just get angry at it instead. It's an i5 4690K system, the whole thing is getting pretty long in the tooth. Been eyeing up those Rizens, it's nice there's some competition again.

Anyone else taken a crack at it?

My take is that, predictable gore aside, this is actually a pretty fucking weird game underneath. It's like they took the main elements of Amnesia etc and then added a bunch of Resident Evil details around the edges. Which sounds shit, but somehow they sort of made it work? Fuck knows how, but I'm up at 6AM playing it so there's definitely something there.

It couldn't be less like RE6 if it tried; it is different in every way. I'll give them credit for taking the risk on rebooting a franchise so hard.

I'm still not sure if I actually like it, though.

What did you lads think of Resi 6? I hated it when it came out but went back to it and had quite a bit of fun. It's trash (but so are most of the games) but it was pretty solid and the campaigns all felt very distinct. Story was the worst in the series which is an achievement, but the gunplay was pretty good and I admire how ridiculous it got. I think they'd struggle to up the ante in a sequel and people were turning against the action focus, so I see why they went back to a more grounded story in 7, but part of me wants to see another action packed Resi.

It felt to me like the Japanese developers who made that game were pretty ambivalent about this third-person-shooter dross for Americans that Capcom were making them shit out. There was evidence of a huge budget, but the action felt derivative and dull. I should give it another go, just to see if that still rings true.

it's an incredible, content packed, OTT action shooter with a million context based mellee attacks you might only ever see once but they went and animated them anyway. It's FUN, but it's so far from the early days of RE that it sent people a bit off.

Oh, not judging them, or anyone else who wants to draw porn for a living. It doesn't hurt anyone else, I don't see how it's any of my concern.

I note that Skullgirls got into some controversy going the other direction, editing sprites to take out some of the panty shots. It seems like an odd choice to me, given the game had been out for years by the time they elected to do this. By that point anyone who'd be offended by that stuff must have already made up their mind. There were some mutterings about this being an attempt to make it esports-friendly, but I find it hard to believe the developers had any such pretensions, not least because they left plenty of equally racy content in there anyway.

It's vanilla right now, save for GriefProtection, which allows you to claim an area of land that will be secured from damage/grief.

23317 Modern CRT gaming


Over the past few years I've owned at least one decent example of each of the main types of flat panels, and in each case I've been disappointed at some aspect the image quality, particularly when it comes to the blurriness of motion in games. I've also heard anecdotes of people dragging now-ancient CRT monitors out and being amazed even compared to the latest gaming flat panels. Then I caught the above video. I think Digital Foundry are generally pretty reliable, so it's really had me really thinking.

Anyone here have any recent experience?

Nah, these are just photos found elsewhere. I did look seriously into buying one a long time ago, back when they were still around for £400 or so, but the shipping was astronomical. Wish I'd paid it now, of course.

The internet hasn't made the world worse, it has just made the world transparent. There have always been approximately the same number of arseholes and idiots, but now they have unfettered access to a global audience. As any teacher or nightclub bouncer knows, it only takes a few idiots to spoil things for everyone else.

The only cure is a return to elitism and snobbishness.

I know I'm a bit late to the party but I'm considering getting either a PS4 or an Xbox One. I'm assuming these days there's little difference between the two other than having the odd exclusive title. I've seen a few Xbox One bundles in the region of £150 - £200 so I'll probably go for one of them as they're cheaper than what I've seen for the PS4.

Have I left it too late, as in are the next generation of consoles expected any day now? Also, which games do you lads recommend? I'm a bit out of the loop with gaming.

It's a bit similar to Monopoly, but with a tile aspect that means rather than buying property you get property by chance (collect 3 tiles of the same animal from the dispenser) based on Chinese zodiac it's relatively fun until late game when all the tiles are gone and one fucker, Me, has every tile someone else needs, and needs to be overtaken, or baited into a deal to sell them.

What I think has probably happened here is they've overstretched themselves and people have become burnt out with the genre, there was a telltale game for every franchise going a few years ago. I bitter loss if you were invested in anything they've yet to finish though.

They're being offered contracts with terms that are shit even for the game industry, where they'll be independent contractors and not entitled to any workplace benefits or a modicum of job security.

Literally in the link two posts up:

>Ottilie said that some workers from the original Telltale Games will be offered freelance roles, with full-time positions possible in the future.

I'd be a bit insulted if the company I worked for shut down, someone else bought the corpse then offered me temporary, day to day work. It's not a great offer.

No it isn't, but that doesn't make it "shit even for the game industry".
