Shout out to the IT folks at my high school who somehow got away w/ installing Battlefield 1942 on every desktop in the computer lab, you were the real MVP(s)


 
 
 

"They had to make the game and develop the engine at the same time" *Weeps in Half Life 2*


 
 
 

Incredibly frustrating that Capcom couldn't balance visuals and performance here for a locked 60fps RT mode *or* allow a 30fps cap. Insomniac, to their credit, did an excellent job w/ both in Spidey. Hope the rest of the industry catches up soon.



 
 
 

Sony has been on folks' shit list of late and Apple's always got an evil empire vibe, but man. This email from an Epic exec to Sony is... kind of threatening? Lol jeez. I'm a little scared to see what this company becomes as it continues to grow 😬


 
 
 

Nailed it


 
 
 

2020 CDPR: "This is the absolute shittiest we could possibly be towards our employees. Enjoy our game!" 2021 CDPR: "Hold my beer."


 
 
 

Wow. This is easily the most impressive use of ray tracing I've ever seen. The attention to detail in the art design is likewise incredible, and it's all part of a *free* update. Masterful work by 4A. Will definitely be picking this up



 
 
 

Y'all I'm gonna fucking cry. This, even more than the movies, is where I fell in love with Star Wars (and also where I fell in love with RPGs). I'm so god damn excited for this


 
 
 

I am cackling in my living room rn lmfao please watch until the end, it's worth it (link below)


 
 
 

Why Bullying Works: My Column


 
 
 

You know a dev is good at humor when their game is still funny in alpha


 
 
 

In my own stupidity I just wasted a bunch of time and guaranteed I have to work late tonight (go me!) so before I dig myself out of this hole, here's a brief public service announcement. Happy Friday!!!



 
 
 

I got shit last year for knocking the half-baked PS5 OS, and 6 months later it seems it's now out of "beta". Glad they're finally adding all of this basic functionally that was missing, at least?



 
 
 

...well shit (I still have no interest in playing this tho lol)


 
 
 

Fuck these DRM batteries, man


 
 
 

Sony's shutting down patch servers too, apparently. Includes both physical and digital games. For disc copies of games that launched buggy, this is gonna be terrible for preservation (link below)


 
 
 

Still find it funny that Sony dropped $380M on Gaikai almost 9 years ago yet here we are today


 
 
 

I unironically want this as a skill point cheat code unlock


 
 
 

Hey this fucking sucks, man


 
 
 

Watching Neon Genesis Evangelion for the first time. It's pretty good, but man, what is it with anime and fetishizing young girls? Lol can I just get the cool mechs and dystopian scifi without the creeper shit?? 🤦‍♂️


 
 
 

Weirdly, the only game I'm considering buying from these Spring sales is a Contra Collection? Anyone know if these ports are good? $6.59 is an all time low price and feels like a steal for a 10 game retro collection


 
 
 

With Nintendo killing Mario and Sony killing an entire digital storefront I'm convinced this announcement is a troll -- I'm fully here for it tho 😂


 
 
 

Looking forward to playing the copy of Geometry Wars I bought in 2006 on my future Series X while continuing to [redacted] old PlayStation games on PC 👍 Thanks, Sony!


 
 
 

My take on the "streaming w/ boobs" discourse is we should rip the band-aid off and acknowledge that "egirls", IG models, etc are sex workers... which is fine. Like it's completely fine. Sex work is real work. I support labor, and you should too.

 
 
 

Let's fucking goooooooo


 
 


About ctg867one of us since 2:47 AM on 11.29.2013

I'm an (aging) dude who plays games and comments about stuff. Been on Dtoid since 2010-ish, back during the Jim Sterling days, though this account's a bit newer than that. Don't post on the FP anymore but you can find me on Qtoid and the Cblogs.

I also stream on Twitch sometimes, if you're interested:
