EA on Battlefield 5 backlash against women: "This is not ok"EA on Battlefield 5 backlash against women: "This is not ok"

Couldn't give a toss about women in BF.

Literally, all I care about...? Is whether EA will ditch the crappy RSP and lets platoons have 3rd party servers back to better serve their communities.

SERVER INFO ASAP.

Please! :)

The new Steam Chat beta looks an awful lot like Discord - you can test it nowThe new Steam Chat beta looks an awful lot like Discord - you can test it now

As one of the only people I know who isn't a fan of Discord, I hope that if you don't use group chats the current friends/chat system stays about the same in terms of interface.
SkankwOn Avatar

Also not a Discord fan, mainly because of its woeful lack of security/encryption!

Wired Cloud II owner here. They took some getting used to in all honesty, the sound quality IS great but they have an odd, slightly muted feeling compared to my old cans.

Hmm, I have Far Cry 3 in my #SteamPileofShame.

Can I have the remaster too, please? I really will play it then!

Steam Link app preview: completely unnecessary for over 75% of PC gamersSteam Link app preview: completely unnecessary for over 75% of PC gamers

Yeah Moonlight... As an AMD card owner for the last few years, I'm sick of hearing about it, lol!

I've actually been using Steam In-Home Streaming since it was announced in beta and was one of the first owners of a Steam controller too. Neither is perfect, but I've been enjoying streaming PC games to my TV for a few years now, (I also got a Steam Link when they came out).

Using a powerline network really helped with latency but I'm going to see how this new app fares via my Sony Bravia Smart TV over 5Ghz tonight, just out of curiosity.Reply
Dave James Avatar

Yes, I can imagine Moonlight must be a bit maddening! I'm still surprised AMD haven't created a GPU-based streaming setup themselves.


And I've gotta say, the actual stream feels more robust, in terms of image and compression, compared with Steam's In-Home Streaming. Just make sure any Game Mode feature is turned on with your Bravia to minimise input lag as much as poss.


It does seem to fall over a fair bit, and has issues with menus and settings that pop up on the desktop just after you click play within Steam, but I'm sure those will be ironed out over the beta test.

From UT and GoW... to milking the Class-based and Battle-royale shooter modes.

How the once mighty have fallen. Sad that people have lost their jobs of course.Reply
panbient Avatar

That's what I was thinking too. Can't really comment on GoW but I quite clearly remember when the first Unreal Tournament came out. There was nothing else like it at the time - Bleszinski and Co. were the innovators.


Shame they lost that edge and just chased the crowd this time around.

I know, right! This is what we've all been hoping for - really hope it's not just a temporary blip and the ASICs do make GPU mining pointless.

Ahhh, overall gaming. NOT PC gaming... Was gonna say!

I suppose the PCMR has a lot to thank our console cousins for really.Reply
Dave James Avatar

Still, the PC gaming hardware market is worth six times the value of the insignificant console market ;)

Okay, now I really need to play 1 & 2. Sadly didn't encounter the series until Bioshock Infinite, which is an excellent game.Reply
Richard Scott-Jones Avatar

Oh cool, you're in for a treat! It's been surpassed, but BioShock 1 is still one of the best shooters ever.

Had to rate this game as it's an excellent multi-player for the sofa but you really need 4 players to get the most fun out of it. It was rated 2 ½ stars here before I gave it my 4 ½ which was way too low. Grab it in a Steam sale and play with friends or family. ;)
