In my case, it's been Anno 2205 or Anno 1800 during their Free Weekends. (Anno 1800 is supported by GeForce Now; Anno 2205, unfortunately, is not - yet; I own Anno 2205, but not Anno 1800.)  My alternate is Bejeweled Blitz (Facebook) on both PC and phone.

Playing Animal Crossing right now on my Switch.  Ok game I guess.  Kind of slow going though.  Things that need building, you need to wait until next day to complete the build.  Also, resources are kind of low for what you can get per day.  Maybe I am doing something wrong but I find myself playing for a little while and then doing everything I can for that day and turning off the game.

Finished Control and the first DLC for, really fun game and I've been a fan of Remedy for the longest.  Wish I had more to do in it and I'd still be playing it.  Hope the 2nd DLC doesn't take too long to come.

I think I've split my time this week between the following:

  • Doom Eternal
  • Jedi Fallen Order
  • Elite Dangerous
  • The Last of Us

But at the same time I have also gone and bought these:

  • Detroit: Become Human
  • Assassin's Creed Oddessy
  • Rise of the Tomb Raider (just started it today which is why I didn't put it in the above list)
  • Shadow of the Tomb Raider
  • Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
  • Tetris Effect
  • Dreams
  • The Jackbox Party Pack

In my defence, Tetris, Dreams and the Jackbox Party Pack I got hold of so that it can complement Knowledge is Power as party games for the house when we get bored. As for the rest...well, if you're not going to let me go out what do you expect me to spend my money on?! At least I've got things to keep me occupied. :laugh:

Well I've already completed The Last of Us several years ago, I just started it up again because a) I want to be reminded of everything that happened before TLoU2 comes out, and b) it's an awesome game. I'd be comfortable putting it down though and just watching a gameplay run-through on YoutTube.

 

Crash Bandicoot I got because it was one of the first video games I ever owned as a kid, back when it was just called a Playstation. Nostalgia is a ##### though, and the controls haven't lasted too well over the years. For a game that primarily has you jumping from one place to another it's really hit-and-miss on if I stick the landing or not.

 

I've played about an hour of Assassin's Creed but it hasn't grabbed me at the moment so that will take a backseat for a while.

 

But still, I guess even if you remove those entries as well as the party entries...yeah, I've got things to keep me entertained. :p

Can I add you to my PSN? I don't play online much but it is good to compare.

Oh don't get me wrong, I love the series! I just wasn't grabbed by the beginning missions and the daunting size of the thing. Starting simple missions, "go here and kill him. Now go here and kill him" is a bit boring compared to what the other games are asking of me at the moment.

 

I'll send you a PM with my PSN. I warn you though, it might say that I'm online or currently playing a game when I'm not. For example during this isolation thing I'm working from home, so I might take five minutes to relieve some stress by taking out demons and then pause and go back to work rather than shutting the PS4 down. ;)

I started playing The Talos Principle last week. It's not my usual cup of tea, but I'm really enjoying it right now. It's kind of a philosophical, slow paced puzzle game. I really like the atmosphere, very chill, really gets my mind off the whole quarantine shtick. The gameplay is alright for a puzzle game, some might compare it to Portal. I guess I needed a game that wasn't very mind numbing and instead makes me feel kind of clever 😅

I played XCOM: Chimera Squad. Pretty good time waster. I liked not having to deal with base-building and stuff.

Now playing Gears: Tactics. I'm freaking loving this game. Very, VERY unforgiving. lol

Completed The Witcher 2 this weekend after being distracted by No Man's Sky. Loved the game despite its flaws and cannot wait to pick the third one

 

Installed the Dead Space Trilogy for some mindless fun. It's a damn good looking game for its age.

      Cyberpunk 2077 is coming back to Sony's PlayStation Store on June 21
      by Subir Kathuria



      CD Projekt S.A., the parent company of Cyberpunk 2077 developer has announced in a regulatory filing that the game would be re-listed on Sony’s PlayStation Store on June 21. Sony has agreed to reinstate the game more than six months after it was removed on December 17, 2020, due to crippling issues with gameplay, primarily on the old-gen consoles.



      In a statement to Polygon, Sony said the following regarding the game's return:

      Cyberpunk 2077 went to sell over 13.7 million copies before the end of 2020 despite its controversial launch. While Sony removed the game from its store and gave refunds to players, Microsoft instead kept the listing and offered refunds without any questions, and also added a warning label for Xbox One players. Due to the issues, an investor even sued CD Projekt for making false claims and releasing it in an unfinished state

      Some of the launch issues ranged from the game not utilizing all cores of AMD's Ryzen CPUs to 8MB save file limits which corrupted save games files. Later, CD Projekt Red delayed promised DLC's and vowed to fix the issues with the game first, and has since released multiple major bug fixing updates.

      Xbox June update has text-to-speech party chat accessibility options and more
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The June update for Xbox has landed heralding new features and changes to both Microsoft's game consoles and Xbox app on mobile platforms.

      Today's release brings speech-to-text and text-to-speech transcription support for party chat on Xbox consoles. With speech-to-text, anything spoken while in a party can now be converted to text which appears as an adjustable overlay on top of gameplay, while text-to-speech has text chat being read aloud by a synthetic voice (with multiple voices available) for others in the party.

      Both functions can be found in Settings > Ease of Access > Game and Chat transcription page. Options > Configure Ease of Access settings can also be used to access it from inside of a party chat.

      Elsewhere, the guide has been updated to allow customizing the order of custom game groups. In the My games & apps screen now exists a 'Move groups' button alongside the 'Create a new group' button for easy sorting.

      Cross-network play requests — involving games like Minecraft that can be played with Windows 10 and Switch players — made by Xbox child accounts in a family group can now be handled by parents or guardians via the Xbox Family Settings mobile app or from an Xbox console. Speaking of mobile, Microsoft is also rolling out improvements to the Android and iOS Xbox apps that will let users see official social posts from games, while offering like, share, and commenting capabilities.

      As for known issues in this update, not much has changed since last month except a single new problem that has surfaced. Microsoft says it has received reports regarding controllers not responding when returning to a game using Quick Resume and suggests restarting the game to resolve it. The update is available now, and users can trigger it to happen right away or wait until it completes automatically.

As previously scheduled, Xbox Live Gold and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers can now claim two more bonus games as a membership benefit, with them being the fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us and the isometric RPG Shadows: Awakening.

      Both games have backward compatibility support for newer generation consoles. As such, Shadows: Awakening can be played on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S systems, while Injustice: Gods Among Us is up for grabs across the Xbox 360, Xbox One, and Xbox Series X|S systems.

      Keep in mind that the games claimed through the service are attached to accounts in different ways depending on their original platforms. Xbox 360 titles will continue being playable even after Xbox Live Gold is allowed to run out, but Games with Gold Xbox One games are only playable while the account has an active subscription.

      Razer finally goes Ryzen, new Blade 14 powered by Ryzen 9 5900HX is here
      by Sayan Sen

      Razer - known for its gaming and related lifestyle products - has always used Intel processors in its laptops and notebooks. However, that is set to change as the firm announced today its new 14" thin and light Blade 14 gaming notebook powered by a Ryzen 9 5900HX.

      The 5900HX is a part of AMD's Zen 3-based 5000 series mobile processor lineup that the company launched earlier this year at CES. It is one of AMD's new 'HX' mobile CPUs and that means the chip can burst past the 45W TDP which most of the other 'H' rated chips are specced at. Thanks to the available power, the 8-core Ryzen 9 5900HX comes with a pretty high base clock of 3.3GHz and can boost even higher, reaching 4.6GHz. You can view the entire Ryzen 5000 mobile processor lineup here.

      The Razer Blade 14 features a 165Hz Quad HD (1440p) screen and to power these many pixels at such a high refresh rate during gaming sessions, the company has included Nvidia's RTX 3080 as dedicated graphics.

      Despite all this power-hungry hardware, the firm claims up to 12hrs of battery life. To keep the notebook cool in the thin chassis, Razer has used vapor chamber cooling instead of heat pipes used in bulkier systems.

      In the audio department too, Razer claims the laptop is pretty impressive as it features 7.1 channel surround sound powered by THX Spatial Audio.

      In terms of ports, the Blade 14 has:

      2x UBC Type-C (3.2 Gen 2 Charging - Display Port), 2x USB Type-A (3.2 Gen 2), 1x HDMI 2.1 (Up to 4K 120Hz), 1x 3.5mm audio port. Price-wise, the new Ryzen-powered Razer Blade 14 starts at USD $1799.99 / €1,999.99 MSRP and is available now at Razer.com, RazerStore retail locations, and with select retail partners. You can read more about the Blade 14 here.
