My biggest complaint about PC gaming, even though it's a very First World Problem kinda thing, is that I am incredibly bad at money management and games go on such deep sales so often that I'll probably never play 75% of the games I buy.


 
 
 

Does anyone else ever listen to music from the period or genre the game is set in while they play? Like 1920's music for BioShock or The Sinking City, 80's for Blood Dragon, classic Western themes for Red Dead, etc. I asked and apparently nobody else did.


 
 
 

I'm absolutely adoring The Sinking City so far. The game does a great job of letting you feel like an actual detective, down to stuff like searching archives and making you place quest markers manually after being given clues on the area. Loving it!


 
 
 

I know this sounds really stupid but I absolutely adore games that kick the ever-living shit out of me for not preparing. The Witcher, RDR2, Metro, STALKER, Monster Hunter, etc. Having to meticulously plan even the most minute encounter is so satisfying.


 
 
 

EGS client is not letting me open my library tab. It keeps redirecting me to the Unreal Engine page and estarting does nothing; been having to launch my games through GOG Galaxy to even play and install them. Does anyone else have this issue? Any fixes?

 
 
 

Been telling myself I'd get back into carpentry for over a decade at this point so I finally put my money where my mouth is. Gonna try and dig up some of my plans from high school back in '09 and see if I still have the touch.


 
 
 

Playing through both Alan Wake and Control again concurrently, I'm reminded how much I absolutely adore the cheesy live-action FMV TV programs and short films Remedy games have. I genuinely can't think of anything quite as charming in any other game.


 
 
 

Admittedly I have a good few problems with Death Stranding, but the OST is not one of them. Probably one of the best game soundtracks I’ve ever heard.


 
 
 

Is there anything you legally have to do when a company sends you more than you ordered online? I bought a $10 item and they send me an addition two shirts, or $60 of stuff in total and I can’t contact with them. Will I get in legal trouble? What do I d

 
 
 

No clue how badly qposts will butcher this image, but making panoramas in Death Stranding is fun.


 
 
 

Does anyone else suffer from motion sickness when playing certain games? I love games, but I’m really sensitive to stuff like low FPS, low FOV, spinning areas, etc. I was hoping to see if anyone else did as well, and if so what they do to alleviate it.

 
 
 

Just a heads-up, Focus Home Interactive is having a publisher sale on Steam! Really worth supporting if you love AA/mid-budget games like I do.


 
 
 

I’m playing through Death Stranding for the first time and I was suddenly struck by inspiration.


 
 
 

Absolutely loving Horizon Zero Dawn so far. Just left the starting area at 17 hours in. Tight gameplay, fun weapons, absolutely gorgeous graphics. I'd say it's Guerrilla's best game but that's a really low bar as I hated Killzone.


 
 
 

Can someone with a copy of Horizon Zero Dawn on PlayStation help me? I’m on PC and even with textures ostensibly set to ultra, which apparently is even higher than PS, some random stuff is really blurry. Is that a bug, or is it like that on PS too?

 
 
 

Booted up Horizon Zero Dawn. There's something surreal about playing a PlayStation exclusive with an Xbox controller on my Windows PC. It feels like I'm partaking in some sort of forbidden black magic.


 
 
 

I just bought an Xbox Series X controller and it's positively fantastic. I didn't think they'd be able to top the Xbox One controller, but this feels absolutely wonderful in the hand. Clicky d-pad, satisfying triggers, the whole nine yards.

 
 
 

I’ve felt bad about not contributing to Bass’s last Dtoid Draws for a while now, so to make it up to him I surprise him with a Jack-O drawing since he’s been so amped up about Strive. It kicked my ass the whole way, but he liked it and that’s what


 
 
 

I feel bad, but I had to enable adblock here on my phone/tablet. I was trying my best, but the ads made it unusable for me. I’m not doing this to say “haha no money for u”, but because I want it to improve so I can turn it back off again and support


 
 
 

Is there a way to sort games on your EGS library? I have so many games but have an awful time remembering what I want to play because I can't find a way to sort it like Steam or GoG. Especially since a lot of this stuff was "eh, it's free I guess".


 
 
 

Wish more games had realistic combat. A good amount of games will have your character be realistically weak, but enemies will be bullet sponges. I'd love more games like STALKER where gunfights are incredibly lethal and fast for both you and the enemies


 
 
 

Finally finished my new desktop setup, complete with a custom animated Little Witch Academia wallpaper I made in Wallpaper Engine!



 
 
 

Redneck Rampage is so unbelievably trashy and terrible and I can’t stop playing. Its awfulness is honestly super endearing. Please take me out behind the shed and put me out of my misery before I start unironically playing TekWar or Nam or something.


 
 
 

Was looking over EA's games in the past 10 years and was surprised. Outside their regular cash cows like Madden/Sims DLC/BF, they haven't really released much. And aside from the Star Wars games, most of it was mid-budget games like Fe and It Take Two.


 
 
 

I wanted to try doing a video editing refresher, so I made a video of me playing Shadow Warrior '97 as practice. Loving the game so far! Somewhere between Ion Fury and Blood in terms of normal difficulty.
