Well if it uses a non-proprietary PSU, like SFX, a few brands have been getting into that game and you can get a Corsair unit with 600w, plus didn't go and check but this case now makes an argument for that announced Gigabyte Mini GTX1080 because it might be able to fit in there.Reply

Jacob did some measuring and the Gigabyte 1080 would defo fit inside the chassis. The PCB is actually shorter than the 1060 in there at the moment.


Sadly the PSU is what's holding you back from dropping one of those in. To get to the size of the rig MSI have used an external power brick, like a laptop or console.


That means you're probably waiting for a micro mid-range Volta for a proper GPU upgrade.

A UK indie team are developing a battle royale game four times the size of PUBGA UK indie team are developing a battle royale game four times the size of PUBG

Planetside 2 was what I was just thinking of, I'm almost kind of surprised they haven't built their own battle royale mode as an aside to showcase how many players Planetside 2 can hold.

Planetside 2 is all about the server size, but the individual shooter elements aren't strong enough to be worth investing into. There's no drop/loot system for the world exploration (so there's no risk/reward of going to busier areas).


The game works as a war of fronts; almost trench-warfare styled in the way the maps were built for barriers, bridge crossings, low hills and large areas to shoot/run over. By having that relatively quick respawn it worked. They may be able to make a 'last-man-standing' mode, but it wouldn't be satisfying to play.

Fortnite cross-play has vanished as mysteriously as it appearedFortnite cross-play has vanished as mysteriously as it appeared

We already knew that not having crossplay was political, it was talked about during E3 this year, didn't you guys run an article on it? It's Sony that's holding things up and refuses to do full crossplay.

LawBreakers director points to Warframe as an example of escaping low player countsLawBreakers director points to Warframe as an example of escaping low player counts

That's not a very good comparison, Warframe is free-to-play game that initially focused on co-op and didn't even have PvP. LawBreakers is not free to play and is only PvP.

Haven't played any of the Dishonored games unfortunately (It's definitely on my very long backlog), but, especially considering recent game story news pieces as well as my own personal experiences, I wonder how much of it was that she "got right" and how much it was the developers saying "Oooh, this is good, we hadn't actually thought of any of this but it works and we like it."

Er, I don't think you understand what that word means. His explanation for his actions are the opposite of sociopathy.

Why would using the 'technique' of getting out of a vehicle like that not be considered exploiting a glitch?

More PR weirdness by Bethesda. You should do a follow up article in like 10 years asking Hines what the intended purpose was. I almost feel at this point that he uses the "Any news is good news" method of generating discussion.Reply

Well shoot. Guess I didn't have to wait 10 years.

Hullo, cross platform multiplayer between Windows 10 store and Steam? That's very interesting. I can't remember exactly what game but there was something that came out on the Windows 10 store and Steam that didn't have crossplay and it was not only disappointing but I vaguely remember something about it being very disadvantageous for player count on Windows 10 Store edition as well.Reply

AMD Vega is now so good for crypto-mining it'll probably be sold out foreverAMD Vega is now so good for crypto-mining it'll probably be sold out forever

"If you were looking to pick up the latest AMD Vega-based card, you best get moving quick."

Do you guys across the pond have anywhere that makes it even worth it? I'm a big red team fan, but between the performance and the price increases, the 56 and 64 don't currently represent a good value at all right now. If they were actually selling for MSRP, I would be fine with the performance and would pick up either in a heartbeat. But (when they're even available) they're minimum $100 over (Theoretically you could blame the whole "Gamer Bundle" system that AMD pitched, as most of those cards do come with game codes for Wolfenstein 2 and Prey, though considering Prey was half off last week on Steam I'd be paying $10 more to own both games), but now more usual is $150 and more over.

Makes me sad, because I might end up buying a GTX 1080. Then the irony will be complete, as I also am running an i5-2500k that I picked up after Bulldozer's initial release, and it being overall not a compelling value when it first came out. But I'm planning on moving to Ryzen soon(ish)!Reply
Dave James Avatar

We have got some retailers in the UK with stock of Vega 64 cards and a retail price of £470, which isn't too far north of the original £450 SEP. That's about £10 cheaper than the GTX 1080.


But yeah, get yourself an R5 1600X and you'll feel better about being a red team fan :)
