PewDiePie apologises for anti-Semitic stunt after slamming the media coveragePewDiePie apologises for anti-Semitic stunt after slamming the media coverage

It's starting to get on my tits how no one is even mentioning how blatant it is that this was a hit piece specifically taking bits of his content out of context to make him look bad.

Seriously, games journalism? THE video games youtuber and you wont even say a single word in his defense when people intentionally set out to attack his livelihood?

Well I mean, realistically, that's playing with fire for journalists. Two large companies dumped PewDiePie over this, journalists tend to have sponsors they need. Plus, at least for PCGamesN, they put his statement on the matter, and there's not really anything else that needs to be said, is there?


I think it's one of those issues where people don't really sit on the fence about it and are going to be convinced by an article.

Funny, wasn't a developer just claiming that people buying keys in one region and selling them to another is illegal? And yet, the practice of the publisher selling them like that in the first place might be illegal. Go figure.

well, technically it is biased, because if Trump didn't win, this article wouldn't exist. however that wasn't the point I was going for at all.


the point I was trying to make was about the fact that more and more articles are downright click-bait and riddled with SEO keyword cancer, speaking of cancer, those year old posts showing that they were posted a few hours ago because somebody added a paragraph to it, all without putting any highlight/indication of said additions.


fair point about the esports / moba gets a patch posts, as somebody who does play some of those games this is the last place I'd consider checking for patchnotes because there aren't even any categories, everything is just thrown together into one pile. which is also one of the reasons I absolutely loathe this type of post, because I have to scroll past it in the hopes of finding something I'd be interested in.


take that as you will, that's just my opinion of it.

Won't let me reply to your other comment, but what you said is exactly my point. Even more so if you say you're here for new games. There's realistically been barely ANY political posts, now compare that to all the esports posts. Singling out political posts as the reason doesn't add up.

FTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robotsFTL devs return with Into the Breach, turn-based kaiju defence with giant robots
Anakhoresis Avatar

I was going to say I wish they had ported FTL to Android, but then I realized it would probably be an utter pain to try and get move the little guys around on my phone screen...


Into the Breach (Pacific Rim?) doesn't look so far to have micromanagement like that but the website only says Steam.

Yeah I can't imagine playing on a phone, but FTL works beautifully on tablets.

Oops, I didn't really clearly state what I was asking for: Why would those articles make you leave? If it's not affecting the other content and can be pretty easily ignored, it seems like an extreme reaction.

well, I came to this site for the sole purpose to find new games that maybe interesting, its right in the title, "PC games news and reviews".


if the amount of SEO filler content outweighs what I'm here for, the site no longer fulfills its purpose in my bookmarks, pretty simple.

I could understand if you took issue with how the article or information is presented, such as bias or somesuch. But just that it exists? Especially since there have been probably, what, around 10-15 politically connected articles in around the last 6 months maybe? Just don't click on that article...


I personally am not a fan of the consistent barrage of articles about esports games being updated (Seems like a sidebar with homes for your favourite games would be a better solution for that), but I just don't go and read them. Doesn't affect me more than scrolling past another article, and while yes it's not the best comparison as they're still games, the ratio of those articles to the others is much higher than the political ones.


I am hoping for a reply! I am honestly curious about your thoughts on that.

VR needs better games to succeed, says Gabe Newell, and Valve are working on threeVR needs better games to succeed, says Gabe Newell, and Valve are working on three
Anakhoresis Avatar
I was going to make a silly joke about Valve making three games and Half Life 3, but then I read the article and...

I don't really agree with most of it. VR itself isn't really some big step forward. I absolutely want a VR headset, and it's interesting, but it's just a different kind of screen. I think even Newell knows this by the way he references mouse and keyboard. The change they're talking about isn't the output (screen), it's the input devices. And at least from watching VR gameplay and playing Minecraft on the Galaxy Gear, there's really no way to get around the fact that movement is kind of awkward (teleporting or using a thumbstick) because either you can't actually move freely (teleporting) or your body/mind gets a little confused sometimes (thumbsticks).

Then the quote from Faliszek is kind of disturbing. I can't really think of anything I've played on a phone or tablet that has actually offered an experience that was different other than using my fingers, or playing those games where you control a marble by tilting your phone.

Also in the article Newell says when talking about hardware that he was surprised that the DS beat the PSP/Vita. But that really wasn't about hardware, that was about Sony stubbornly not supporting their handheld.

Seems like some odd perspectives.

Intel SSD 600p 512GB review: PCIe speed for the price of a sluggish SATA mid-rangerIntel SSD 600p 512GB review: PCIe speed for the price of a sluggish SATA mid-ranger
Anakhoresis Avatar
I feel like it's a little bit odd that in your conclusion you compared the Intel 600p to the Samsung 850 Evo, but didn't include benchmarks for the Evo. I know the Pro is there, and that the Pro is faster than the Evo, but if you were going to use it as a comparison in the text would have been nice to have the numbers as well. Also would be nice to see the prices of all the SSDs tested included!

But that's just me whinging about minor details. Great review! I'm in the same boat as Saiph though, nothing of mine has M.2 slots.

I also chuckle because Saiph says his mobo is slightly old, but mine is a Z68 with an I5-2500k in my desktop... Just ancient I guess! HahaReply
Dave James Avatar

Gah, no you're absolutely right! I had meant to drop in the 850 EVO scores and copied over the Pro results instead. I've amended that now, cheers for spotting it and letting us know :)

Is there any chance it will have animated pitstops like F1 2011-16 and was promised for PCars1?

Also will we be able to save more than 1 setup per car per track?

Will time trial save your ghost data if it's over 7 minutes long? PCars1 doesn't.

You'd think these are pretty simple.

I guess we'll see.
Anakhoresis Avatar

I feel like I've read the first one is still pretty buggy and has a fair amount of issues.


To be fair, I'm not 100% sure if I'm remembering that correctly, and I haven't actually played it so I don't know if it's accurate. But if it is, I'm a bit tired of the idea that instead of having solid initial games, you just fix the problems in the sequel. Though I also understand the business necessity...

Is anything ever a utopia? The trailer looks like they went cyberized, though.
