  1. It probably works by default because it's Midnight Suns, I think it's the same deal with The Quarry - unlike older games, they should be expecting to be loaded through the launcher. Older 2K Games titles are basically retrofitted with the launcher, but all the update is doing is pointing you to the launcher, and then loading up the original .exe file through the launcher because nobody could be arsed to repatch the games to make it work. In those cases, you can just cut out the middle man.
  2. Also, 2K games are wank after they shoehorned their own launcher into it. If the above doesn't work, look into going into desktop mode and changing the properties of the game so it points towards the game executable, not the launcher.
  3. Also, if you've been following the news that has been skimmed from the Steam Database, Returnal already has controller information for the Steam Deck. Deck should meet minimum spec when scaled down to the 800p screen, but who knows what FPS will look like until it's in reviewer's hands.
  4. Also, most things beyond A1 spec are weighed more heavily towards write speeds - something that would only really affect installing, decrypting and patching games, which are more throttled by internet speed and CPU power respectively for the first two, and I would presume both for the third aspect as well. Read speeds are definitely necessary, but as mentioned, a good SanDisk or Samsung card will be at least A1 spec and top that aspect out immediately, even if you go with their budget brands - SanDisk Ultra or Samsung Evo Plus/Select are perfect. I have both from discount sales at Amazon, and they've been fine.
  5. On the bright side of that spending spree, it's very close for the Egret II to be hackable, and the Astro City Mini already is capable. So is the NeoGeo Mini, but I haven't tried that yet because my brother bought me one of those limited edition Samsho bundles and I didn't really want to take it out the box
  6. Nah, the ergonomics on the switch can fuck off. Docked with the Joycons detached however, so I could hold one in each hand to play while reclined, is fantastic and I wished more companies would make split wireless controllers. Hell, I'd take a brand new ASCII Grip.
  7. New Humble Monthly: Fantastic month - I've wanted Wasteland 3, Greedfall and WTWTLW on Steam for a while now, and I just bought TOEM. (of course, I'm trying to return it, but I'll buy the bundle and give it away otherwise, I thought the demo was great)
  8. @moosegrinder, do you want to change the thread title to let people know there's a DLC out on the 15th and it will be under $2? I mean I wouldn't I like typing that out
  9. Even worse - it's going to cost $1.99, and out on the 15th. That's 50% of the entire game! Absolute pisstake
  10. On a related note, can anybody remember how much XBox 360 games were at launch? I could have sworn it was £60 and I could only afford PGR3 at launch with the console (the basic one without a hard drive), but my memory escapes me. I remember it being quite a shock after being used to the PS1 and PS2's Platinum range and the eventual wave of hooky games, although the import scene always commanded a high price on whatever bullshit was on the shelves before import websites became popular.
  11. I always did find it odd how people stated subscription services as "bad value" - Nobody's putting a gun to your head to keep subscribing as soon as you've had your fill, as if it's a minimum term broadband contact. Subbing to EA Play for a month just to 'experience' Anthem at launch month was worth the tenner in sheer comedy value. And that was a shit game. I was going to do the same for Skull & Bones before it got delayed forever. If the Game Pass' conversion method didn't exist, I'd still be subbing for a month or two to have a crack at the games I'm interested in at launch. It's not different to when game rentals were a thing in the late 90s, and probably cost just as much to rent one game for a couple of weeks. If course, not all publishers offer that, so for those I'd just wait for them to be on offer or lock in a preorder price if I'm gagging to play X game. Most of the time, though, I'm not as enthusiastic about big budget games as I am with indie games on PC.
  12. Soap isn't that great, at least when I played it earlier this year. You're usually better off spending your money on washer model upgrades and nozzles early game, and use soap when the grime isn't shifting on the best washer. Might have changed since, mind.
  13. I'll spend £70 for a complete game, devoid of nickle and dimed DLC and not requiring x months of patches to bring it to an acceptable standard, that's for sure. Unfortunately, I don't think big game studios don't want to do that. As a result, I don't think I'll be buying from big game studios.
  14. By the time my Gamepass subscription runs out in 2025, either prices will normalise or the heat death of the universe will occur, so I'm not that bothered. Ultimately though, the actual end result of such price increases across the board is that I'll buy less games at RRP. So - as @JoeK says - that's just not buying games at launch, which is pretty much a daft practice already.
