I'm looking forward to The Surge. Have you gotten a date for the review embargo yet?Reply

Hi there, the embargo drops tonight at 11PM British Summer Time. We'll have a full written review and a performance analysis going up at the same time. Enjoy!

You point your controller somewhere and teleport, think like Dishonored's blink ability.

Really? I had no idea, but I've never tried a VR headset or looked much at the games since I can't play them anyway.


I thought you moved around with an analog stick or something.

I might be out of the loop but what do you mean when saying most VR fps games lets players teleport?

I was under the impression that they still had to move their character with some kind of controller, be it a regular controller or one that comes with the headset.Reply

They are still working within the game's rules though, even if they are unintended. (I agree with you that cheating should invalidate a speed run, though. If they had used a cheat code instead of the recycling glitch, I'd be dismissing this, too.)

I'm pretty certain that "real" cheating does indeed invalidate a speed run. I'm not saying that speed runs are dumb and I know that exploiting the game (even glitches) are allowed. I just don't enjoy those kind of runs.

I personally consider exploiting as cheating - hence I dislike those kinds of speed runs. "Who can cheat the most" isn't really something I see an as accomplishment.Reply

Steam Gifting blocked across countries with big price differences in overhaul by ValveSteam Gifting blocked across countries with big price differences in overhaul by Valve
SF_Uberfish Avatar

Wrong... When you buy from G2A they send you a CD key. Exactly like if you bought a humble bundle, or a game from the store/approved third party. This system is not being retired.


This is to stop the annoying situation where you send your friend a game only to find they can't redeem it at all because of country differences (I have this issue when gifting to my friends back home as I live and work in another cheaper region).


Getting a refund in this situation is complicated and annoying and can result in a gift failing to be received on time.

nu1mlock Avatar

I'm well aware of CD keys. You might not be aware of the gifts that are being sold on G2A and similar site though.


Previously (before this change), when you bought a gift and chose to send it through e-mail, that e-mail contained a link. Clicking that link redeemed the gift.


Anyone can click the link though, so what happens on some games you can purchase from G2A and similar is that you get sent that link. Copying it into a browser redeems it on your Steam account that you're logged into.


Those are clearly marked on G2A as "Steam Gift" instead of "Digital key" in the list of available sellers.


This is not possible anymore for new purchases.

This is a move to counter sellers on sites like G2A. Many games sold are Steam gifts and you're given the redeem link without the e-mail address. This will now not work.

Gift scheduling has been available for quite some time though, and is nothing new.Reply

I know PCGamesN have played The Surge (but I can't remember who it was) - have you also played Lords of the Fallen and, from the short time you had with The Surge, would you say that it seems better?

Of course story and yada yada, but I'm talking about the combat itself, the few enemies encountered and, if any was done - the crafting system.

I actually really enjoyed Lords of the Fallen. A lot. And I made it through one and a half playthrough before I got bored. That's a lot when it comes to me - I quickly get bored and move on to the next game.

Do you have to pay a license to repair PC's? I'm assuming you're not talking about paying taxes, because streamers have to do that as well and has nothing to do with licenses.
