Steam

Recommended Posts

I installed playnite last night and can thoroughly recommend it. Steam is no longer my only launcher and I have a growing number of games elsewhere, especially twitch and gog. Playnite combines them all (+origin, uplay etc.) In to one launcher so that I can clearly see what games I've got and on what service. About 1000 games total across all of them with a surprisingly large number of duplicates.

What's in it for the company behind it? Are there adverts? Are they secretly mining up all the bitcoins?

 

One dude is making it, although it's open source (it's on GitHub).

 

He's looking for Patreon money to develop it as a full time thing, mind.

 

https://www.patreon.com/playnite

 

I'll give it a go, especially if it can act as a front end for emulation that I can just use with a controller as mentioned.

Doesn't Launchbox do this anyway? EMUs, Windows, Steam, etc.

It's Half Life 3 guys! GUYS!

 

In statement, Mr Newell said that when - and only when - all Steam users complete each and every game in their back catalogue, Half-Life 3 will be released.

 

"We've had it finished for years, just waiting for you guys"

Picked up Sonic & All Stars Racing Transformed Collection for £3.74.

 

What a fantastic little racing game it is, Looks beautiful, sounds amazing and runs at a rock solid 4K, 60fps on my geriatric 970.

The 970 is geriatric now? It's newer than say, the PS4.

Which is also showing its age. The 970 should be able to run practically everything still, but it's two generations back by now.

It's been in my PC for nearly 5yrs.

 

...In PC terms, that practically qualifies it for a pension & retirement.

 

The fact that it has stayed relevant and still able to play most of the stuff I throw at it for all this time, says more about the appalling, stagnating state of the PC GPU market than it does about the 970.

I've still got a 980ti in mine which still handles everything including VR.  My cpu is the weak point - i5 4670K.  Probably upgrade in a year or 2.

I'm also in the 970 club. Still runs most new games on near max settings at 1080/60. If/when I upgrade it will be an entire new system, including 4k TV. I don't see the point otherwise.
