A large portion of games now use either Steam cloud or their own online save system, which conveniently avoids losing progress and (sometimes) settings after a reinstall. I was somewhat surprised to find that Just Cause 3 doesn’t do this.
As a habit I keep my large library of games installed and track updates as they come in via Steam. I thought I had noticed something about it before on RockPaperShotgun.com, and sure enough today there was an “update” to Nosgoth. I checked the Steam news feed for the game and confirmed that it is closing down its servers today, ending the game.
Short list of reasons for playing The Golf Club
Evolve is primarily a co-op first-person shooter, but with third-person brawling for the titular evolving monsters, who play solo against four hunters.
I still don’t know what the root of the problem is but I’m thinking it has something to do with the DirectX dependencies that get installed along with the game.
Suddenly I went to load up and play and *poof* it’s back to crashing within five second of my double-click on its entry in my Steam library.
I’ve been trying to get Counter-Strike: Global Offensive to work again.
Perhaps I’m just not doing something right. Perhaps I’m bad at it. Perhaps it just is too hard. One way or another I think I’ve had enough of Electronic Super Joy.
On July 2nd I picked up a Samsung LU28D590S, an entry-level Ultra High Definition (UHD) 28″ monitor, for can$655 (~us$612, €450, £357) after taxes. Since then I have been doing various tests to determine exactly which games support UHD and to what extent, as well as trying to get a sense of how it changes various games and software.
In this post I give a general review and opinion of the monitor and examine the viability of “4K” gaming.
