Ever find a good gif, then you leave open in a tab, just waiting for the perfect opportunity to use it?


 
 
 

My right shoulder and arm are killing me, I assume from too much mousing - with Overwatch, The Long Dark, and making grid images in Photoshop. Time for some controller-centric games I guess? :/


 
 
 

For some dumb reason Freedom Planet 2 is going through Greenlight to get on Steam. Makes no sense that they should have to jump through that hoop again. Anyway, give them a vote: http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=861154312

 
 
 

How did we go from badass Shepard to derpy-ass Ryder? Ryder looks like an annoying side character, not the hero. You know, the character you let get killed off lol. I just can't get excited about being Ryder the way I did being Shepard. Awful models, too.


 
 
 

Disqus is really going nuts with these video ads. I can barely browse QPs on mobile with all the lag.

 
 
 
 

Stumbled across this at GameStop. I don't own a Wii U, but TP is one of my favorite Zeldas. Also the favorite of someone I lost, so I'll have it to remind me of her.


 
 
 

Bethesda just announced some Fallout 4 stuff. A PS4 Pro patch (1440p + enhancements), and a *58 gig* ultra quality texture pack. They recommend a GTX 1080 for it lol. I love having assets that will help a game still look good far into the future.


 
 
 

I'm mostly using a controller for Rise of the Tomb Raider because they're better for platforming and QTEs. But every time I have to shoot something I lay it down and grab my mouse because I can't stand trying to aim with a controller. Life is hard.


 
 
 

I freaking despise Disqus on mobile. Makes article lag like hell if there is video, drains my battery, and uses up data like nuts. I don't think I'm going to visit Dtoid off wifi anymore. Is there any way to block it on a mobile browser?

 
 
 

Dread coming here on mobile because of Disqus. Those video ads wreck performance and are a huge waste of data. Hate those guys.

 
 
 

I started reading the Witcher books last night. Pretty good so far & they provide more background (like why he's called The Butcher of Blaviken). I think the games take place after all of the books, so maybe after that I'll replay everything...


 
 
 

The Nintendo Switch created Mei and New Symmetra.


 
 
 

I was tinkering with The Witcher 3 first-person mod, and it was raining in-game, except I didn't notice it was also raining IRL, and there was this loud thunder that shook the whole house and I jumped up in shock because I thought the game did it...


 
 
 

So do any of you not know what Zelda is? Because apparently it's no longer "mainstream" ;p

 
 
 

The good: BotW is a solid 30fps on the Switch (720p mobile, 900p docked). But they mention that the Wii U version ran poorly back at E3 (even dipping below 20fps). I gotta wonder if this will be a Hyrule Warriors type situation.



 
 
 

I noticed this exchange on the Terraria Facebook. Otherworld was looking pretty sweet as I recall. Hope it comes soon, I'm finally a bit burnt on Terraria & Starbound so I need the next big thing from them lol


 
 
 

Holy crap, PC Gamer mentioned my website prominently in one of their articles! This *was* a nice birthday! http://www.pcgamer.com/customize-steams-grid-view-icons-for-a-beautiful-library/

 
 
 

Happy Birthday to me I guess x%20 Please let me find some direction this year... Or just play more videogames, whatever.


 
 
 

Do you guys come up with your own goals in games? In The Long Dark I once made a quest to jump off the top of the mountain. This time it was to light the lighthouse with fire & flares. Other times I pick an "extraction point". The power of imagination!


 
 
 

Been breaking in my GTX 1070 with Forza Horizon 3. I don't like the Windows Store but I'll tolerate it for this game. Reminds me a lot of Burnout Paradise. The Witcher 3 also looks amazing on Ultra settings & I just added a weather mod with better rain!


 
 
 

When your team has three snipers and they get mad when you politely suggest someone should switch.


 
 
 
 

Can anyone think of some older FPS maps that had lethal traffic like Oasis does in Overwatch? We had a few in Action Half-Life but I can't think of any maps in other games with that gimmick offhand. Side note: environmental kills in Oasis are so fun...


 
 
 


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.
