  1. Valve must have been high up in the ivory tower when they didn't add simple controls to play Half Life Alyx instead of VR gimmicks.
  2. Fantastic report on loot box gambling came out this month. I'm amazed how deep the roots go. Well structured analysis. No wonder we missed the red flags and got to the present controversies. Studies like this help me rebuild faith in humanity. https://www.begambleaware.org/sites/default/files/2021-03/Gaming_and_Gambling_Report_Final.pdf
  3. New settings for Europe with conform to data protection rules, with regard to cookies on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/account/cookiepreferences
  4. That's valid for Portal 1 which was Valve's best game, but in Portal 2 they fixed that with the "Perpetual Testing Initiative" and the endless Steam Workshop submissions. Not enough to exhaust even in a lifetime. Technically, mods don't count but the modding scene is also stellar for both Portal games. I wonder what more would they have been able to do had the Source engine been open source.

  9. Basically what it all boils down to is: „more options is good.” Let there be more choices, options and not less. I think this is what TDM was doing well all along.

    I'll never play a MMORPG'er like this again until they turn the switch off the servers. But it's free anyway: https://store.steampowered.com/app/836620/Black_Desert/?curator_clanid=4777282&utm_source=SteamDB
  11. TDM 2.09 https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=The-Dark-Mod-2.09
  12. Looks like Play Station 5 isn't quite what's advertised. But these problems didn't appear yesterday.
  13. If thou shalt not release the source code - I will do it myself. https://gamasutra.com/view/news/377218/Cyberpunk_2077_developer_CD_Projekt_hit_by_targeted_cyber_attack.php The ransom thing is hitting below the belt though. How can you be so materialistic dude? Very undude. They might as well release the source code for the modders. Another open source initiative discredited.
  14. To conclude what I meant by my statement: I don't think the refresh rate of a CRT monitor can be compared to the refresh rate of an LCD - not when it matters to eye strain and the damage to your eyes. 75 Hz is still worse on a CRT versus 60 Hz on an LCD monitor for your eyes. After I noticed how visible screen flickering is on video recordings, I did all that's possible to switch to LCD and I never looked back. Ofc, I am biased since I worked with a lot of older folk. It may be hard to estimate how much vision is lost due to human aging and how much due to staring at screens for hour
  15. Yes, have mercy on your eyes. They don't grow back.
  16. I hope this means free achievements for those who own Mass Effect 1. But EA will probably make a standalone version of Mass Effect 1, whereby legacy owners of Mass Effect 1 inbefore this remake don't get anything.
  17. This is a very opportune comparison to Bioware. CDPR started game dev with Witcher 1, by competing directly with Bioware. They wanted their game to be more hardcore, for the PC master race. But at the same time they wanted to get rid of the morality dichotomy which was prevalent in most RPG's at the time - good/evil. Moreover, Witcher 1 was made on the Neverwinter Nights 2 engine. So, there is a tragic irony in CDPR becoming Bioware if they don't stop sweeping the rubbish under the rug. CDPR is obligated to update Cyberpunk for free until it becomes the game promised. And then some. At least a
  18. Viva la revolucion! More details on the Commission's site: https://ec.europa.eu/commission/presscorner/detail/en/ip_21_170
  19. It's shiny but it's not faithful to the moody and dark palette as the original Morrowind for some reason.
  20. The market finds a way regardless of any loose ends in regulations. The EU brings predictability and order after years of chaos and US hegemony. If the customer wins, we win. It's a win-win.
