Got both Valhalla and Immortals:Fenix Rising and I had a lot of fun in Fenix over the weekend. 

 

I have read all reviews and thought that I would like Valhalla better at it is less childish  - but no - apparently I like Zelda / I meant Fenix more. I only played Valhalla for 2 hours.

 

Some of the vaults are annoying but combat is pretty fun. I think I am about 10 hours in and plenty to do. And juvenile narration is kind of fun sometimes ;)

 

Was it worth buying both games at full price - not sure -  maybe not - but it is a decent Zelda replacement for the PC - and judging by previous Creeds - both games willl keep the price for a while.

 

Only regret - not buying for PS4 because I wanted better graphics and keyboard and mouse.  - however for PS4 I could have sold both games after I was done and while they still cost a lot.

I played Valhalla for 260hrs on PS5 and loved it, I also have Fenix and will try that after I've completed Control.

I got AC:V full price.  Was a fun game and still play a little now and then.  New DLC coming this month so looking forward to that.

 

Immortals:Fenix Rising is %50 off on XBOX now.  May grab that in a few.   Something to play in between DLCs for other games I am waiting for.

AC:V was/is fun.  I put about just as many hours into it. Maybe a little more.  Looking  forward to AC Japan.  I just enjoy the series.

I tried to play NBA 2k21 but I just couldn't, they've made these too much of a sim than what I grew up with.  I ditched it and started yakouza 3.

Started playing Immortals:Fenix Risin.  Fun game so far.  And like everything I read, feels like a combo of AC and BOTW.

Immortals:Fenix Rising was fun.  Got the available DLC and playing that now.  But the main game was fun, the commentary kinda funny, but some of the vaults were a PITA so I skipped over them.

Completed Arkham City over the weekend and picked up another game that I was part way through, Ace Combat 7.

 

It's amazing how much variety they can create for a fairly simple concept. Really enjoying the game so far.

I think I'm around 75% done with Yakuza 3, going to play the Evil Within after this before I swing back to Yakuza 4.  I think it's best to split it up and play something else and not do the whole series back to back.

I still play Quake Champions (almost) every day to blow off steam but I am sick and tired of all the cheating and Bethesda's refusal to deal with it.

hahaha - so true,   i cannot believe so many people buy early access - i tried it, and it is just not worth it, i would rather wait and see the final reviews, and then pay more.

 

same reason i stopped using Kickstarter, as originally it was 75% success, but now it is a freaking gamble. they final product is either delayed for years and by that time someone in china makes a similar version for much cheaper. or it is just not the product they originally described at all.

no more falling for this crap.

Finished the evil within, waiting for MS to put the sequel up on game pass at some point.  I was planning to play Yakuza 4 next but I kind of feel like something else, don't know yet.

I've tried this and that in that series but finally decided since I probably wasn't going to finish any of them anyway I'd just work on Kiwami 2 and go from there.

 

Outriders is pretty much excellent.  I wasn't really expecting a unique and polished property that feels influenced by so many things without being a copy of any of it.

 

After that...?  I have no idea, hoping XSX shipments start showing up in the US again sometime before 2025.  ;)

i still have ps4pro collecting dusk and i only did like 20% of that game before i stopped playing.  i stopped and could not get back to it after a few month break, so if i play again, i would have to start from scratch, because even after 4 months i forgot all controls and how to play - open world is very different from previous GOWs where i can start from any place at any time, and it just seemed to work.  gameplay is very different.

As are the mods, you can completely change the gameplay with mods!

I never tried mods at all - did not even think about it.  and i did the full game with both expansions twice - most time i EVER spent in the game since i was a teenager with patience and sega genesis - i think i spent 100s of hours on Sonic games - which i later beat in under 10 hours in my 30s LOL  - but as a kid i just could not beat the later levels.

 

anyways - what exactly do mods do?

I last played and completed the story in 2019 and I thought I would struggle with the controls but after 30mins or so it all fell into place and this morning I have managed to kill 5 of the 8 Valkyries which I found too hard before, maybe 60fps makes all the difference.

      Grand Theft Auto V Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 version launches in November
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Last year, with the latest console launches imminent, Rockstar revealed it will be bringing another generational upgrade to Grand Theft Auto V in 2021. Although the studio went silent about this enhanced version following that, today, it gave an update announcing the launch date as November 11, 2021.

      The "expanded and enhanced" release is hitting Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles, though this time Grand Theft Auto Online will also be available as a standalone experience if anyone just wants to jump into the multiplayer side of things. The summer update heading to GTA Online will include "special benefits" just for those who will be enjoying the game through the new and upcoming version.

      While the latest consoles from Sony and Microsoft can play GTA V right now, they are only presenting the old-gen version via backward compatibility. In the original announcement, Rockstar said it will be utilizing the power of the next-gen consoles to deliver "a range of technical improvements, visual upgrades and performance enhancements" alongside exclusive content.

      Meanwhile, PlayStation 5 players won't have to pay up for the GTA Online standalone edition when it arrives, at least at first. Rockstar is giving three months of free access to the multiplayer component for all PlayStation 5 players at launch. Pricing details for GTA V and GTA Online enhanced edition have not been revealed just yet.

      Lastly, with the 20th anniversary of Grand Theft Auto III coming up, Rockstar also hinted at something special being planned for the event. Aside from saying it will also include content for GTA Online players, the studio didn't go into much detail.

      SnowRunner, Knockout City, Slime Rancher, and more head to Xbox Game Pass
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe

      Microsoft's Xbox Game Pass drops continue for the second time this month. The latest wave has another hefty delivery of games for PC, Xbox consoles, and cloud platforms, along with Xbox Touch Controls support for more cloud games, a returning Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deal, and more.

      The latest games reaching the subscription programs include the EA Original title Knockout City – which lands day one on Xbox Game Pass and EA Play – the popular multiplayer survival game Conan Exiles, and even the relaxing farming game involving gelatinous blobs Slime Rancher.

      Here's everything incoming from now through the end of May:

      SnowRunner (Cloud, Console, and PC) – Available Now Peggle 2 (Cloud) EA Play – May 20 Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville (Cloud) EA Play – May 20 Secret Neighbor (PC) – May 20 The Wild at Heart (Console and PC) – May 20 The Catch: Carp & Coarse Fishing (Cloud, Console, and PC) – May 21 Knockout City (Console and PC) EA Play – May 21 Maneater (Cloud, Console, and PC) – May 25 Conan Exiles (Cloud and Console) – May 27 – Optimized for Series X|S on May 27 Fuzion Frenzy (Cloud) – May 27 Joy Ride Turbo (Cloud) – May 27 MechWarrior 5: Mercenaries (Console) – May 27 Slime Rancher (PC) – May 27 Solasta: Crown of the Magister (PC) – May 27 SpellForce 3: Soul Harvest (PC) – May 27 It certainly looks like Microsoft is ramping up the number of cloud games available in its Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscription. The move is happening while PC and iOS devices are being tested for Xbox cloud play support. When the new platforms join Android, they will have quite the library waiting for them.

      Going further, Banjo-Tooie, Call of the Sea, Genesis Noir, Narita Boy, Nier: Automata Become As Gods Edition, Rain on Your Parade, and Two Point Hospital now have full Xbox Touch Controls support for those using cloud play without a controller.

      As always, several games will be leaving the Game Pass services at the end of the month. Here are the latest titles prepping their departures:

      Lastly, Microsoft has brought back the $1 Xbox Game Pass Ultimate deal. The popular offer includes three months of the subscription for that price – which normally costs $14.99 per month. The subscription bundles access to Xbox Game Pass Console and PC variants, Xbox Live Gold, EA Play, and a number of perks including Spotify Premium for new members.

      Nvidia 466.47 WHQL driver has support for Days Gone and Knockout City
      by Pulasthi Ariyasinghe



      Bend Studios' Days Gone launched on PC earlier today, bringing the PlayStation exclusive open-world title to another platform for the first time. Nvidia has now released a graphics driver that provides official support for the game, mirroring the very recent AMD driver.

      The WHQL-certified 466.47 Game Ready release also ships with support for Knockout City, the upcoming team-based competitive game based on Dodgeball. Developed by Velan Studios and using the EA Originals label, the game has a May 21 launch date attached to it. Nvidia hasn't said anything about what kind of improvements do these two games receive when the new driver is powering them.

      This is also the driver Nvidia wants users to install if they are picking up a GeForce RTX 3080, RTX 3070, or RTX 3060 Ti with the new Lite Hash Rate identifier. Every newly manufactured Nvidia graphics card going forward will have a reduced Ethereum hash rate, and the company says the 466.47 driver is "required" for using those cards.

      Two issues have also been fixed in this driver:

      The known issues being worked on by the company are these:

      The 466.47 Game Ready driver is available for download on the GeForce Experience app. Those wanting a standalone installation experience can use the links below. Here are the release notes.

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

      Notebook GPUs:
      Download: Windows 7, 8, 8.1 | Windows 10 - Standard / DCH

      Nvidia is halving the hash rate on more of its GeForce GPUs
      by João Carrasqueira

      Earlier this year, Nvidia announced that upon launch, the GeForce RTX 3060 desktop GPU would feature a lower mining hash rate in an attempt to make GPUs less appealing to cryptocurrency miners and thus more widely available to gamers. Now, it's bringing the same hash rate limiter to the rest of the RTX 30 series graphics cards - the RTX 3080, 3070, and 3060 Ti.

      In a blog post, the company explains that future models of these GPUs will be coming with the limited hash rate, but existing cards won't be affected. To make the choice clearer for consumers, the cards will also be sold with Lite Hash Rate (or LHR) branding, so customers know what they're buying.

      While Nvidia claims to have good intentions with this move, the company has been blasted by some for its futile attempts at making graphics cards more available to gamers. After the release of the GeForce RTX 3060, users quickly found ways to circumvent the hash rate limitation, and Nvidia itself accidentally disabled the limiter with a beta driver update, showing that software workarounds are possible.

      At the same time, Nvidia is manufacturing dedicated cryptocurrency mining GPUs, which it calls CMPs, without any kind of display output. This means that, should cryptocurrency values crash, those cards will be essentially rendered useless for any purpose, turning into e-waste earlier than regular GPUs might.

      It's possible that Nvidia has come up with a new system to lock the hash rate on these cards going forward so that the restrictions can't be worked around as easily, and the company says these cards will only work with the newly-released driver version 466.47. Of course, that remains to be seen until they actually make their way to consumers.
