  1. I have a 2070S at the moment. If the power consumption of the new cards means replacing a 750w PSU, then I doubt I could be bothered to do that. Might pick up a 3070 or 3070ti, in that case.
  2. I worry that the player character shouting out "Leviosa, Incendio" every few seconds doesn't sound sufficiently dorky, for the remaining Harry Potter audience to relate.
  3. @Fallows Could I please be added to the OP? Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/conduitsofchaos Youtube: Conduits of Chaos Genre: D&D Homebrew Campaign Schedule: Every other Tuesday at 7pm UK time, right now. Looking at between stream options, potentially RPG video games etc. I'm Grizz, in the game, if anyone fancies stopping by. We're streaming our 8th session at 7pm tonight. Having a lot of fun, with a friendly group and great DM. Keen to add more to the channel, as every other week right now.
  4. Yeah, that stacks up with my early impressions of Weird West. Before playing it a bit, I was wondering why nobody seemed to be talking about it. It has some good ideas but feels all wrong. I was expecting it to have a low budget feel, but it's clumsier than expected.
  5. I've been playing in a homebrew Dungeons & Dragons group, since March 2020 and recently we started streaming our sessions on Twitch. Tonight is our 4th streamed session, so thought it's time I started letting people know about it. We stream every other Tuesday at 7pm (inc. this evening) at moment, definitely something we'd like to expand on, but taking the journey a step at a time. Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/conduitsofchaos Youtube: ConduitsOfChaos If anyone fancies stopping by to say hi, my character is Grizz, a human monk, who is unworldly and naive, even by the standards of monastic isolation. I've found streaming to be super interesting so far and keen to expand to do some game streams with our group I feel like streaming as a group is a lot easier, and I'm really glad I'm not the DM!
  6. Good tips, thanks! I'm very mindful of the balance between "I do a thing" level descriptions and trying to be Critical Role! We've been using zoom for the on camera bits, we did a test with Discord, but that seemed less flexible. Apparently our DM is looking at another solution for us to have direct feeds from the camera (if someone's connection drops or camera is switched off zoom rearranges the windows, which is messing with overlays, right now) I'm really glad we waited unitl we were settled in to our second campaign before considering this, our first campaign characters started with a very 'kill everything attitude', especially at the start.
  7. Does anyone else stream their D&D sessions? Did my first stream last week and it was a really interesting experience. We had a few technical challenges, but it was a lot of fun overall. Went from a bit nerve wracking to feeling like our previous zoom sessions, mostly. I think we all found having even a small audience meant we had to be that bit more mindful, actively involved and just that little bit more on our game. We started playing during lockdown and started with Lost Mines, as I imagine most do. Our DM has really gotten the bug and we now have a homebrew campaign on the go. Would be really interested if anyone has any good tips on streaming D&D.
  8. A new game comes out and licences are sold as NFTs. Demand is high at launch and prices are buoyant. 6 weeks later as demand falls, they're available for half the opening price. I mean, you can see why Ubisoft would be interested, 6 weeks to half price is their whole MO.
  9. Was surprised to find I could still get one at Argos, for weekend collection, with availability in a few local stores.
  10. If the primary goal of these devices is to recapture a childhood well wasted, how come none of them have been bigger than the originals?
  11. Firaxis say that with Marvel on board, this game has a 95% chance of being a hit. X-Com's RNG coder is shitting themselves right now.
  12. Much less of a hot take, than "I'm assuming you can't afford it, if you don't don't like this".
  13. The Borderlands series offers first person combat, and a third person perspective of what its developers find amusing on the internet.
  14. Media Molucule games offer the largest collection of SMB 1-1 recreations, available outside a Nintendo platform.
  15. Star Citizen's team has painstakingly crafted this pre-alpha, at great expense, over a nine year period.
  16. Heavy Rain makes extensive use of the capabilities of the sixaxis, as well as other rarely seen gestural inputs.
  17. No, I've had no crashes, no significant bugs and I've played around 25 hours (the kind of platime I very rarely do, in a short space of time). I did end up turning ray tracing off on my pc, because the framerate tanked during one scene, but otherwise, it's been pretty solid. I was really enthusiastic to play it, loving cyberpunk aesthetics and the Witcher games, but wasn't expecting anything too trancendant. Those 80s sci-fi vibes could carry me through something far more mundane, for sure. I gave up on Mankind Divided twice, after a few hours, for comparison. I'm mainly happy that it's not as edgy as the marketing, though it is uncommonly keen on calling you a cunt, for a big release. Genuinely empathise with those having a bad experience, but it also seems to have attracted hot takes by the bucketload too.
  18. Or squirting some Toilet Duck under the rim?
  19. I'm sure the use of that ancient meme is entirely innocent and not a dogwhistle.
  20. It's quite mindblowing that this has passed $300 million now. A mate from work mentioned he'd bought in to it recently, at the £40 entry cost. Turned out that one of his friends had bought a 5 person ship and had been trying to rustle up a crew. My first thought was that friends don't let friends buy Star Citizen, especially not eight years in.
  21. It's the animals I feel for, having to go into 'crunch' pretty much as soon as the main tourism season is over.
  22. Well, at least there's one new tech release that's not going to be scalped to death.
