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

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.

      Nvidia 471.11 WHQL driver brings support for Doom Eternal ray tracing and more
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Nvidia's latest driver release is primarily focused on bringing technologies like ray tracing and DLSS support to even more games including Doom Eternal, Rust, LEGO Builder’s Journey, and Escape From Tarkov, but there are some other features attached too. The WHQL-certified 471.11 Game Ready driver also has support for the Windows 10 May 2021 Update, and comes recommended for anyone picking up EA's upcoming racer F1 2021.

      The Doom Eternal update carrying ray tracing capabilities alongside Nvidia DLSS for added performance will be landing on June 29. Meanwhile, Escape From Tarkov will be seeing Nvidia Reflex being implemented soon for reduced system latency. LEGO Builder’s Journey launches with ray-traced effects and DLSS later today on Steam.

      Rust already received Reflex support in a previous update, and on July 1, DLSS will be enabled as the latest Nvidia technology to reach it. DLSS support has also reached games running the Vulkan API on Linux via Proton, with DirectX support planned to arrive this fall.

      The GeForce Experience app has undergone some overhauls as well according to the company, improving the "FPS Counter, One-Click Automatic GPU Tuning, Freestyle filters, and HDR Screenshot Capture features." Lastly, the G-Sync compatible displays list has increased by four monitors with the driver, bringing support for the AOC AG274US4R6B and AG254FWG8R4, the ASUS VG28UQL1A, and the LG 32GN650/32GN63T.

      Below are the bug fixes included in this release, and VR fans should be happy to see that the longstanding stuttering problem seems to have finally been tracked down:

      Here are the open issues to keep an eye out for:

      Keep in mind that come this October, Nvidia will be dropping support for Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 8.1 as well as its classic Kepler architecture products — GTX 600 and 700 series.

      The new 471.11 Game Ready driver is available for download on the GeForce Experience app and via the links below for standalone installations. The release notes are here.

      Desktop GPUs:

      Download: Windows 7, 8, 8.1 | Windows 10 – Standard / DCH

      Captain Jack Sparrow swaggers to Sea of Thieves as the crossover update launches
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      The crew of the Black Pearl, Davy Jones, and other familiar faces from the Pirates of the Caribbean have sailed into the Sea of Thieves as part of the A Pirate’s Life mega update. The collaboration between Rare and Disney was only announced last week during the Microsoft E3 showcase. The update brings a five-part storyline as part of the crossover, as well as new regions, threats, the third season of content, and much more.

      Getting the biggest feature drop out of the way first, the five new Tall Tales has pirates taking along Captain Jack Sparrow for a brand-new adventure filled with "puzzles, pitched battles, surprises and rewards." Players will be exploring the Sea of the Damned, the underwater Sunken Kingdom, as well as iconic places from the movies.

      Players can jump straight into the new Tall Tales, which are instanced so no other pirate can disturb the sessions, via the starting menu or by heading to the Castaway’s Camp of an Outpost and speaking to a new arrival.

      As can be seen in the trailer, the old Skeletons have now been joined by Phantoms, Ocean Crawlers, and Sirens as new emergent threats in Sea of Thieves, which can appear both above ground and underwater. To fight back a little easier, players can now find the Trident of Dark Tides, a new type of weapon that fires energy bubbles.

      Just like with every new season, Rare has brought in new cosmetics to earn via the battle pass, fresh server-wide game events to tackle, plus a whole load of premium cosmetic items that include garments, emotes, and ship customizations all inspired by Captain Jack Sparrow and his vessel. There is even a new pet dog variant available for purchase resembling a certain prison dog.

      Sea of Thieves A Pirate's Life has now come ashore as a free update to all players across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Xbox Game Pass, and cloud play. Head over here to find the complete patch notes of today's update.

      Facebook ads for Oculus Quest face major setback as developer opts out due to backlash
      by Usama Jawad

      Last week, Facebook announced that it will begin testing in-headset ads for the Oculus Quest soon. It stated that it will kick off the process with Resolution Games' Blaston and a couple of other unnamed developers. Today, Resolution Games has backed out of the trial in a major setback for Facebook considering no other developer willing to participate in the test has been revealed yet.

      The move to introduce in-headset ads in Blaston faced some pushback particularly because it is a paid game with a $9.99 price tag, so players obviously did not take kindly to the announcement and showed their displeasure by leaving negative reviews on the store listing. In a statement to The Verge, Resolution Games' CEO Tommy Palm has announced that the company is reversing course following feedback from players, saying that:

      The executive has hinted that it may decide to continue the in-headset ads trial in one of its free titles like Bait! in the future, but those plans haven't been finalized yet either. It remains to be seen how Facebook does damage control in this recent development and potentially tap some other major developer who is willing to show in-headset ads in their Oculus Quest game.

      Gamers rejoice, graphics cards are finally getting cheaper
      by Sayan Sen

      Unless you have been living under a rock for the last one year or so, you are likely aware of the exorbitant prices that GPUs have been selling for during this time. However, according to a new report by German media 3DCenter, prices for graphics cards, and especially Nvidia GeForce ones, are starting to fall after nearly six months.

      The report has been prepared using data from the major German retailers like Mindfactory, Caseking, Computeruniverse, and more.

      The graph above shows the movement of the average prices for graphics cards in those shops. As mentioned above, it seems the price of Nvidia GPUs is taking a noticeable dip after it had peaked in May at +204% over MSRP. Although it must be noted here that it is still 91% higher, or nearly twice, over MSRP. If the trend continues, then we expect the RTX 3000 series cards to continue getting cheaper and they could reach MSRP levels around Christmas.

      Radeon RX 6000 series cards however are showing a somewhat mixed trend. The prices had actually fallen around the end of last month but have begun to creep up again.

      Aside from the global chip shortage, the RDNA 2-based RX 6000 series GPUs have struggled to meet demand as they are built on TSMC's 7nm node that has a lot of buyers. Nvidia cards, on the other hand, utilize a more abundant Samsung 8nm process but became scarce due to the high demand for GPUs from Ethereum miners.
