Now all I need is friends!


Got a message from Rainway, a service that will let you stream PC games to other devices. They want to use my Steam grid images in their client. But no offer to pay me anything for my work. I should expect that, right? https://rainway.io/


So does anyone here own an Xbox One? I feel like all I see are PS4, Nintendo, & PC players around here sometimes. While I know those are bigger platforms atm, it's not like there aren't a ton of Xbox One's out there as well. And is anyone getting an X?


Visiting family so I brought my PC to hook to their TV. Got to play "let's try to make everyone motion sick" with Forza Horizon 3's Hot Wheels expansion. In first-person mode it's like being on a roller coaster. This would not be a good VR game lol


Sad that "Gambling" is now a user tag in Steam. It's more honest than most reviewers have been about this crap.


The attitude of developers who put loot boxes in their games.


The way the alt-right is getting triggered by Wolfenstein II is pretty comical. If you think a game about killing Nazis is about you, maybe you should re-evaluate your values a little? Maybe like... be less of a Nazi? Less racist? Less of an asshole?


Sampled the Battlefront II beta. It just... bored me. The combat is shallow and everything feels sluggish. The space combat felt like a sloppy, dumbed down Rogue Squadron. Not sure I even want the single player at this point. Bleh.


A Hat in Time is pretty good so far :)


Hooked my PC to my tv for some controller-centric gaming. Lots of Forza Horizon 3 over the weekend and now I'm bingeing on Dead Cells. If you love Rogue Legacy or Castlevania you need that game. What have you guys been playing this week?


Thinking about ultrawide stuff lately. Feels like more of a game changer than 4K tbh. But it seems more practical to get a 16:9 screen then letterbox to 21:9 than buy an actual 21:9 monitor. And you could do it with a big 4K tv... best of both worlds?


Tis almost the season to start playing Witch Mercy again...


How could you watch widescreen video your whole life, then think vertically is how you should record on your phone?


Xbox One X vs PC: Misconceptions

I haven't done one of these console tech blogs in years, but I've gotten a little exasperated trying to correct people in regards to the Xbox One X. There are a lot of false comparisons to PC hardware by people who don't really know wh...


That feeling when us Gen-Xers hear Millenials complaining about Baby-Boomers.


When they ask you about that live action GITS movie


Sometimes when it rains in games I just sit back & enjoy it. I've been a nut for weather effects since Ghouls 'n Ghosts. Starbound actually has some of my favorite weather, they do so much with pixel art it's nuts. (Forza Horizon 3 in pic)


Been thinking about Borderlands 3. I love the first two games. But I already know 3 is going to break my heart. The series is too ripe for exploitation with loot boxes & microtransactions. Remember those free SHIFT key codes? Expect them to be $1.99+ now.


Is it a rule that female Overwatch players have to use "kitty", "kitten", or "cat" somewhere in their name?


My butt sweats like crazy when I play online shooters. I have no idea why. #tmi


Took a look at Junkertown on the Overwatch PTR. Looks good & is full of the little details I love about their maps. For example, shoot the payload and coins go flying out. Like many Overwatch maps, one spawn is in a bar. Total alcoholics, these guys...


Was just thinking - could the PS4 Pro & Xbox One X actually result in games that are *less* complex? Devs will now take getting their games running at 4K into account, so for upcoming titles they might actually scale them back in detail & ambition.


Tried the Destiny 2 beta. Runs/looks amazing on PC. But the story & characters? BARF. The intro is a melodramatic, trying-too-hard mess. I literally laughed out loud at the bad guy's dialog. Whole thing felt like it was written by a 12 year old kid.

About Jinx 01one of us since 4:26 PM on 11.18.2011

I love gaming, and I have followed the industry and its technology since I was a kid in the 80's. I have gamed primarily on PC since 2000, though I still follow console news and hardware as well.

I worked as a mapper and beta tester for the mod Action Half-Life. I also make custom images for Steam's grid view, those are over on my website.
