Comments of the week
Steam Deck owner manages to produce at 4K60 with an “external” graphics card
“I wonder if Valve could come up with a solution to easily add an external GPU to the Steam Deck for much higher performance.
“It would add much more value to the Steam Deck to connect the Deck to a TV and play games like you would a gaming rig and might actually be appealing to many then build a gaming rig .”
good cry Paullooks like the sort of thing the Switch dock does, but with more punch.
Analyst suggests PlayStation VR2 will launch in 2023 due to ‘delay’
“Unfortunate. The increased production rates make me hopeful that it will actually be doable at launch, unlike the console itself *still* for many. But PSVR is struggling to generate content that far into its runtime. life at this point, which worries me about the staying power of people’s interest until next-gen VR arrives.
It’s definitely something Sony is going to have to sort out, rogueCortex. It may have sold a lot of PlayStation VR headsets, but the latter will need some truly must-have games if gamers want to bite again.
Certain Affinity says it’s working on “new and exciting” things for Halo Infinite
“It looks like this studio has a pretty close relationship with Microsoft as it looks like they are currently working with them on several projects.
Another possible acquisition perhaps?
Do not be dumb Pherocious_ChiefMicrosoft never buys anyone.
Call of Duty Vanguard update aims to improve spawns across all maps and modes
“We are in mid-April 2022… the game launched in November 2021. This issue should have been fixed at launch. In fact, given COD’s history, this should never have been an issue in the first place.
“It’s like as gamers these days, we should be grateful to them for fixing a broken game months after launch. We should actually all be entitled to a refund because they’ve acknowledged the game is broken. If something “fails frequently” is not correct. Players need more consumer rights.
While we agree that the issue should have been fixed at launch, Fallen Lords, we are not sure if this is a consumer rights issue. It’s not really a “broken” product, they just try to improve it. Games are like any other form of entertainment – when you buy them, you take a chance and hope you like them.
Dead Island 2 could be released later this year, according to a journalist
“It’s still ongoing, for sure…as a parent of someone who works in the QA department of the Dambusters studio.”
Well, it’s a brand new version of “my uncle works at Nintendo”, Lam Bouner.
CD Projekt Says a Major Cyberpunk 2077 Expansion Will Include a New Storyline
“Hyper Marketing pays off. The budget is $300 million and guess where it went? This sales number is your answer. Global market consumerism is the doctrine within said world order. It is the power of money and propaganda: replacing Faith (Royal Monarchies) with Logos (Reason in the 18th century) then crushing Logos with Money power (Banking Clans & Corporate Feudalisms). That’s why EA Games, UbiSoft always make a lot of money, same for COD and GTA V.
“The real question remains: “How many refunds have there been?
“Generating profits within a centralized monopoly is essentially the main objective of any society under the doctrine of the world market society. When a company grows, it ends up becoming Corporate. Which means that perceptions are desensitized, while people are seen only as consumers.
“As such, the new goals shift from designing great games to gamers; in expanding green profit margins for quarterly figures. At the same time, a deterioration of Work Ethics and morals within the company sets in (everything is coldly quantified).
“Indirectly, whoever enforces this ideological framework does Neuro-Hacking which is an amoral and criminal manipulation of minds (it is the worst kind of individuals who only seek profit (in the short term), at all costs ( type “the means justify the end”) of psycho) without even thinking or taking into account the consequences of their actions on other individuals (in the long term)). These individuals are then considered “successful businessmen” in American magazines and the general press.
Very well, JCDenton, constant on. Are you trying to write the Cyberpunk expansion plot for them?
SOC Investment Group urges Activision shareholders to vote against Xbox deal
“Are some shareholders and investors afraid that there is a chance that half-baked Call of Duty games won’t come out every year on MS just to make even more money like they have done every year, no matter how good the games are.?Are some of them afraid that there will be no Call of Duty on PS in the future?Are some people hoping to get prestige because they cancel this great acquisition?
“Hopefully this deal gets done very soon, regardless of the outcome, because it’s boring as an endless sh*tshow.”
We understand your frustration, Fabidinibut acquisitions of this size usually take a long time, we’re afraid.

Why would you say something so
controversial evil yet so brave?
Gives new meaning to Tokyo Drift, we suppose.
To be fair, Pascal’s point was that he didn’t want to emulate the way Troy Baker played Joel. It’s different from portraying a character from a book, where the actor can easily come up with their own version without being influenced by previous portrayals.
Hey, don’t spoil the plot.
It may be the Japanese equivalent of Silicon Valley.
“Smaller” and “more efficient” mean “improved”. That’s not what clickbait is, sorry!
Perhaps you could call it your “Final Fashion-spree”.
We are really sorry.
