    The Division 2

    I'm excited for this. I played a few hours and remembered how much I enjoy tootling around the town and doing missions. I played the first game almost exclusively with randoms, along with the rest of my usual crew as we all picked it up on different platforms or at different times, so I'm looking forwards to jumping on with everyone. It's running well on my PC. I've got everything apart from a few shadow and reflections settings cranked to the max and I'm hitting a solid 70 at 2k. Happy days.
  2. That makes no sense, but thank you for your swift response.
  3. @Timmo This might be worth adding to your original post, as the methods for playing H1 in H2:Prog are different depending on the platform. I know this was aimed at PS4 owners, but H1 was recently in the humble monthly bundle. Details are from here: https://www.ioi.dk/hitman-legacy-faq/

    Epic trying to beat Steam the wrong way?

    Valve literally held Half-Life 2 to ransom requiring Steam to be installed to play it. Everyone hated it. It was buggy. It failed to connect. They won consumers over through steam sales. Epic are doing nothing new, nor different.
  5. Nice! To win takes both aggression and tactics we have found. Pushing up and taking fights has seen our survival stats drastically increase. Not only because we're getting better at the winning part, but because we're clearing space for ourselves. This happened last night and it reduced me and my friend to tears. I wish I had the audio.
  6. I've been putting in the work with the squad since Vikendi launched and it's nice to see it paying off. Games have gone from 1-2 kills occasionally, to regularly hitting the 3-4 and then 5-6 range. Last night we won with me finishing on 8, which is my highest ever in squads. Happy days. Gotta keep pushing for the elusive double digits though.

    A new console contender appears...

    Yeah, that's basically the issue isn't it? Not hardware, just marketing. Microsoft spent an awful lot getting the Xbox brand recognised and you could argue they had a unique timing opportunity with the death of sega consoles to get them into living rooms. Valve have tried and it went terribly with both the steam links and their branded hardware, although their marketing push was none existent really.
  10. This totally isn't clickbait. https://www.t3.com/news/ps5-and-xbox-two-just-got-called-out-by-a-powerful-new-next-gen-console But is there the potential for a new contender to the console market? Given the disruptive nature of Chinese companies taking on the big boys in the phone arena and the homogeneity consoles are arriving at with architecture, would it really take much more than cash and third party Dev kickbacks to play with the big boys?

    Super Smash Bros. Ultimate

    This is great. I've spent a few nights at a mates playing with 4-8 of us. None of us are smash pros so we've just been picking randoms. I finished 12 ko's ahead today

    Measuring and defining "value for money"

    Time is a quantitative measurement, but value is qualitative.
