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:

Still in development and will be forever.
When Chris Roberts started Robert's Industries and was crowdfunded everyone thought he was a hero, the  messiah come from his original PC pedigree for the second coming, a new age of PC gaming, to save us and fully utilise the power of the PC.

Pffft, turns out he's a bit of a cunt.

After all the millions having been donated, will it ever be finished? That's the question most people are asking.

The bigger question people are asking is why the fuck they're developing more and more ships when there's already more than enough for the game and enough to drive it's economy in terms of capital ships etc.

Not that those asking the question don't already know the answer, greed.

And the other question being why the fuck did they switch from CryEngine half way through the development to Lumberyard, again not that we don't know the answer, a sweet deal with Amazon and more money in the long run.

Chris Roberts, hero to villain and absolute prick.

Maybe still a good game though am getting the hang of it now but what does piss me off is server disconnects when i have 5-6 deliveries in the hold which took a good while to collect and then bam they gone 2 hours wasted!

It does look good on very high settings mind!

I've lost all interest in it.

Been there since the first ship packs and past caring. The way they're testing early adopters is abysmal. Refusing to refund despite several times being told early ship packs aren't part of a crowd fund


Honestly can't stand CI now, worse than fucking Activision and EA and that says a lot.

Believe me, I've never been so initially hyped for a game.
I'm waiting patiently for Cyberpunk now  :afro:

I just read that Cyberpunk has been delayed again, presumably to time it with the PS5 launch.
I've gone back to The Division and am now almost at level 18, but heck it's a grind and I really need more powerful weapons. Not been into the Dark Zone yet, but maybe I should just to get more rewards.

I'd reinstalled AOE 2 HD version with Steam Workshop texture packs and it got me thinking, maybe I'll buy the definitive edition with it's better automation and pathfinding etc.

So i bought a month of Xbox PC for a quid as it's included among with another HD texture pack.

Got to the Joan of Arc 2nd map and even though I had enough resources it would not allow me to build battering rams or any other seige weapons.

Got frustrated and uninstalled it.  Grrr :mad:
