Thanks.

But how does that effect HB?

They've now gone back on the VIP and it'll work like previous versions. To say sorry they have also gifted cars and credits.

Or it could just be that the project they were hired for has launched and not needed post launch?

Struggling to get a decent consistent frame rate on an i5 @ 4Ghz with a 1070 (using ssd and 1080p). Hoping for some improvement in game and drivers.

Steam could be profitable with an 8% cut rather than 30%, says Tim SweeneySteam could be profitable with an 8% cut rather than 30%, says Tim Sweeney

If Valve and GOG took Tim Sweeney's word, would this mean reduced prices overall on steam and gog?
DustyGerkin Avatar

Nope. The games would still sell for exactly the same price, creators would get more but they would very likely keep the prices the same. Why change them?

Wonder if the experience will be better than that with PCars1? Felt like it was kicked out then abandoned. UI was not that great and too many little glitches especially with the multiplayer.

Flashy graphics doesn't make a game.Reply

The first game was marketed as the best looking racer with flashy bullshots etc. It turned out to be such a disappointment. I'm worried about this one.

They need to fix the price disparity between the much cheaper physical copies Xbox owners can buy and the digital only always full price PC version.Reply

it's a major problem in PC gaming in general. most games can be picked up cheaper in physical form especially if you compare the prices to Steam. the problem is in the digital market place the big players see them self as having no real competition for their market, so there is no real competition.


so the problem here isn't on digital stay at an inflated price it does on just about every store front and platform, the problem is they chose not to release a physical copy of the game that could be distributed outside of their own store.

Death knell for Rift?

This sort of price slashing normal precedes the end of product line. Smells like a last ditch make or break.Reply

Or maybe they've got a lot of spare inventory to shift with the serious slow down in VR sales this year!


Think they're going to be in it for the long haul though, they can't have expected VR to have been a huge industry immediately. Triple-A game development alone can take five years, so just to get the best content was always going to take a while.

AMD Ryzen 5 1600X review: the most significant gaming CPU AMD have ever madeAMD Ryzen 5 1600X review: the most significant gaming CPU AMD have ever made

57C at idle is still 57C unless AMD have created a new temperature scale.

The rated temps came from the previous version of the Ryzen Master app which reported a 20degree offset on the 95W 'X' chips.


So that 57C idle is actually 37C according to AMD. The reporting is changing soon (now?) to take that into account.
