Feel like a weak year for games?
  • Not sure about the upcoming months but I felt like 2024 started off with quite a few games coming out one after another, including Like A Dragon Infinite Wealth, Helldivers 2, Last Epoch and Dragon's Dogma 2.

    And Manor Lords is coming out this month as well.

  • Crunchy audio coming through some Proton games on desktop but not on Steam Deck
  • I've been experiencing something similar lately and what I found helps is to go to your audio settings in your OS and change the audio output device to something else and then change it back to the correct one. If it doesn't work the first try, try again.

    I hope that helps. It works for me. I never had this issue until recently. It's really annoying. :-/

  • Dragon’s Dogma 2 to Get ‘Start New Game’, Art of Metamorphosis Item Boost, Max 30fps Option, and More in Future Patch - IGN
  • I do wish they could give an ETA because the 'near future' could be anywhere between a week, a month or perhaps even longer.

    However, I did read in an article that they plan to release a patch later this week, so hopefully it'll be released soon?

  • Last Epoch 1.0 released (almost) 24 hours ago. What are your experiences? What masteries did you choose, what builds are being pursued?
  • Played almost non-stop since launch. Despite the server issues I was having a really good time. I've now got 3 characters in end-game; just unlocked empowered monoliths with one and close to unlocking them with a second character. I started with a spellblade as my main, then created a warlock to play with my husband but she's now my highest level character (level 86). A few days ago I created a falconer which I'm actually enjoying the most out of the 3 classes I tried.

    I joined CoF and really enjoy that faction. I initially decided to mix things up and join MG on my falconer but that quickly got boring because I didn't really see any benefits while I was leveling and I personally enjoy lots and lots of loot so I think CoF is better for me.

    Although I've been using loot filters since the start I found that my stash tabs tend to be full a lot. So I had to spend quite some time at the weekend reorganising my tabs and selling or shattering loot that I wouldn't be using on the characters I'm playing at the moment.

    Usually I get bored around endgame because ARPGs of course tend to be grindy and it sometimes takes quite a while to get the loot you want. But with the crafting system I'm actually finding this a lot less boring than in other ARPGs. It feels more rewarding even if I don't have the 'perfect' gear yet.

  • What are you looking forward to (or hoping to see) in the 1.0 release?
  • At first I was a bit disappointed at the number of skills you get to choose from, until I realised you can use most of the other masteries' skills as well and that you can create a really nice variety of builds with all the different skill trees. I think I respecced my necromancer about 4 times over the weekend just to try different things and find something I enjoy. It's been really fun so far.

    I'm also enjoying the crafting a lot!

  • What are you looking forward to (or hoping to see) in the 1.0 release?
  • Yeah, I agree that the loading times are way too long. Plus when you transition to a new area your character just stands there, sometimes it'll say 'Entering [Area Name]' and sometimes you don't even know you're about to be teleported.

    One thing I do hope they'll fix is that you automatically transition when you're standing just a bit too close (bit still too far away for this to happen?) to the white glowing thing. Sometimes I'll enter an area and accidentally leave immediately because of this.

  • What are you looking forward to (or hoping to see) in the 1.0 release?

    Last Epoch had been on my radar ever since it was on Kickstarter but I didn't back it at the time. It's been on my wishlist for a while and initially wanted to wait until release, but now that it's so close to releasing and because of the many positive reviews I decided to get it this week and I've been having tons of fun so far.

    I already respected a few times just to try different variations of my build and I've been having a blast. I also really like how I can organise the stash tabs and set up custom loot filters in this game.

    I know the current build we're playing is an older one but I'm surprised at how polished the game feels. I haven't encountered any game breaking bugs so far (though I did report a number of small bugs I encountered here and there) and if this is what early access for the game is like I'm really looking forward to seeing what they've done for 1.0.

    I'm really looking forward to the 2 new classes. Especially the warlock! The trade factions also seem very interesting and unique.

    What are you looking forward to the most, or hoping to see, in 1.0 or a future update?


    Are you going to preorder Dragon's Dogma 2 or wait for reviews?

    I'm super excited about Dragon's Dogma 2, but because many games these days launch not living up to what was promised or with performance issues, and the fact that games seem to be getting more and more expensive, I'm a bit wary of getting a big game at full price at launch.

    However, I'm considering reading the reviews and then getting it ASAP with this game. And trying it for the 2 hours on Steam so I can at least refund it if there are any problems with the game. The gameplay videos they released so far look pretty good. I think I'm mostly worried about performance issues.

    What are you planning to do? Are you going to (or did you already) preorder the game or wait for (player) reviews?

    Edit: I want to clarify that I'm not planning on preordering the game, as for me there's no point in preordering digital stuff anyway.

    The One Save Debate
  • What I'd really like to see is one save per character instead of one per account. Even though with one save I'm still worried my save file might become corrupted at some point. But aside from that, I'm okay with one save per character but not one save per account.

  • Anyone Playing first Dragons Dogma while waiting on the release of second?
  • I've been playing it and having fun, though the closer we get to release of the sequel (and the more preview/sneak peek videos I've watched) the more I really just want to play the sequel. It looks so good! And yeah I did notice that about the pawns. It's nice to see it's still being actively played!

  • Infinite Craft, an endless crafting game, is out.
  • I was wondering why it looked different from some of the screenshots I see here but when I play on mobile it's just an endless list that gets bigger and requires a lot of scrolling. Switched my browser to desktop mode and now I can see you can drag and drop stuff. These types of games are so simple but so addicting. Ahhh

  • Samsung advertising new phone in my notifications
  • Ugh I hate those ads. I had a OnePlus for a few years and forgot about all the bloat you get with a Samsung phone. Recently decided to go for a Samsung phone as the other options didn't seem much better. But now I keep getting ads from Google and Samsung in my notifications. I THINK I managed to disable some of it but it still keeps popping up once in a while.

  • How do you feel about The Sims 5 being free to play at launch?

    I must've been living under a rock or...well, I just haven't played The Sims 4 in a while and I didn't know the game had become free to play until recently. I also heard The Sims 5 is going to be free to play at launch. How do you feel about that and do you think it'll impact the game in any way?

    I'm personally just worried the base game will be more limited in features if it's free to play but I hope I'm wrong!


    Subscenes and their use

    I recently switched back to using Unity and am trying to wrap my head around the concept of subscenes (and ECS) but aside from some forum posts here and there and the official documentation I haven't really found a lot of information about it.

    How should subscenes be used (as in, what kind of scenarios should I be thinking of)? Do I just have one main scene and a bunch of subscenes that I switch between? Or are they basically modules that I can load/unload that, together, form the actual scene (is that what open/close/unload is for? To make them only load or be active when they're actually needed?



    How do I stop certain communities from showing up in my feed?

    Am I correct in assuming that blocking a community stops it from showing in your feed? I see a lot of posts from communities in languages I don't speak and would like them to not show up on my feed. So I blocked a few, but I'm not 100% sure if what I did has the intended effect.

    (Maybe it's just because to me, blocking a person seems like something I wouldn't do to someone who hasn't done anything wrong, haha XD)
