There are huge problems when Warzone has a massive updates, its very slow at times.

But considering its a free game, I'm not going to complain, and its does slow down any other internet activities while updating............strange

I'm flitting between Metro Exodus, the Grid racing series and a plethora of free games and bargains I picked up at Epic, not to mention some nostalgia with Return to Castle Wolfenstein and Medal of Honour.
But recently I've been a little too weary in the evenings and satisfy myself with a few episodes of The Walking Dead.

COD (Warzone) does have slow updates as Blizzard have openly said they throttle the downloads the best way to update is change the region i generally use the Asia server as have found it better, as to slowing down other programs i havent noticed i was playing borderlands 3 last night with a friend with no issues whilst it was downloading in the background

Keasy pointed out today that Epic are giving you a £10 voucher when you buy a game, but if you download GTA V (free) you still get the tenner, so it's basically a free tenner. :cool:

Hmm, I'm not sure if you get it with other free games, but if you don't have it via the Epic Launcher, you could always download it again from there and get the tenner.

I had it modded with Redux and World of Variety before I'd even fired it up and thought I'd broke it, but the Redux Mod takes about 40 minutes to apply.

BTW signing into the Rockstar Launcher was a fucking nightmare.
It doesn't tell you the username is already in use until you do about a dozen 'I Am Not A Robot' Captcha's, so I must have done about 150 of the fuckers before it took (username is a now random keyboard mash), then it wouldn't find the game until I went through the sign in shit another twice and linked the Rockstar Launcher account to the Epic Launcher account.  :mad:

I had the same experience with that awful launcher. Anyway, I already had GTAV on Steam, but I claimed it just to get the $10 voucher for any game over $14.99.
What I'm not sure about is whether the Epic version (via Rockstar launcher) carries over your previous GTA career or you start again.

I use a PS4 controller with DS4, so seems OK.
Having the Keyboard and Mouse comes in handy when shooting though.

Control is very good, if not very unusual in its psycho-kinesis storyline. If you like the HL2 grav-gun, you'll like it. Looks great too.

I had the no sound  issue on GTA V, which was bloody annoying and involved a bit of googling to no avail.
(Check volume mixer settings, revalidate game files, run DirectX installer again etc.)

What happens is it starts with sound on loading, but just before it hit the first menu screen it goes mute.
The solution that worked for me (and I haven't seen elsewhere) is to go into Settings>Audio>Voice Chat and it comes back on without having to do anything else.  :cool:

Antiyoy is a fun simple strategy game I'm into all the time. Any one here tried it?

It's a genre I've never really gotten into.  :undecided:

Pretty sure Keasy has been supporting that since the development days.
