Well, I'm not waiting around for that contest. A friend of mine is currently in Italy and comes to visit next month, so I got him to buy me two of these very cheap 16GB memory packs (it's the same price as only one of them here in Brazil!), and will finally get the CPU (Ryzen 7 2700) and motherboard next month to coincide with his arrival. Not yet 100% sure on the motherboard, but the Gigabyte B450M looks like the best quality for price for how much I'm willing to pay, and it's relatively small too, which I like. If I'm doing something wrong, please tell me.

Well, and if I do win the contest, I suppose I got stuff to sell, then.

Isn't 2666MHz kind of slow for Ryzen? I thought 3200MHz was the sweet spot for both 1000 and 2000 series.

Does it make too big a difference? I don't plan on pushing the hardware too much, at least not soon. 3200MHz was a lot more expensive, so I went for the cheaper option. It's done now, anyway.

Edit: I mean, you gotta consider I'm coming from 6GB DDR3 memory on an i5-2310 CPU. My standards are not the highest in the world.



I've had a week vacation and spent a lot of time away from my PC. I completed Bloodstained, which really is quite a fun little game.

Anything important happening last week?

Does "last week" include Sunday 7th when AMD launched its new products or just the last 7 days? (If it's the former then yes, if it's the latter then I don't think so).

Good point. I just skimmed through the review on computerbase. Looks like AMD really went all in with Zen 2. It's not quite enough for me to choose AMD over Intel yet but they're getting dangerously close. The problem is the 3800X is only marginally cheaper than the 9900K but also slower in games. The 3900X is more expensive but still slower in games. And since I currently have a super dedicated gaming PC I won't really profit from more cores.

If Intel continues to sleep AMD might just beat them in every single aspect very soon. Which is also great news for an Intel fan like me :)

GOG Galaxy 2.0 update squashes bugs and lets users hide games in their library
https://www.pcgamer.com/gog-galaxy-20-update-squashes-bugs-and-lets-users-hide-games-in-their-library/
The latest update for GOG's unifying game launcher, Galaxy 2.0, squashes bugs and adds more tutorials to the closed beta. Users can also now hide games from their library, which seems especially important for a client that lists every game on your PC, and even beyond.
GOG also took some time to lay out the known issues it's working to address. Most notably, the client still doesn't have compatibility for Xbox Play Anywhere games. You also can't import games manually, but that's on the way. Some games may also still appear as "Unknown" in your library.

MODS/EMULATORS

Nintendo Switch emulator, yuzu, can now run Pokémon: Let’s Go, Pikachu!, Xenoblade Chronicles 2 & more
https://www.dsogaming.com/videotrailer-news/nintendo-switch-emulator-yuzu-can-now-run-pokemon-lets-go-pikachu-xenoblade-chronicles-2-more/

Resident Evil 3 HD Mod is now available for download, upscales FMVs, backgrounds & 3D model textures
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/resident-evil-3-hd-mod-is-now-available-for-download-upscales-fmvs-backgrounds-3d-model-textures/
Resident Evil 3 fans, here is something really special for you today. Mathieu Philippe has shared a HD mod for Resident Evil 3, called Resident Evil 3 – Seamless HD Project. This project upscales the game’s FMVs, backgrounds and 3D model textures, resulting in an unofficial remaster that only PC gamers can enjoy.
Going into more details, this fan HD remaster project for Resident Evil 3 upscales backgrounds with vectorized masks, restores integrated texts, upscales 3D model textures, upscales the FMVs, and upscales the menu elements as well as the HR portraits. The modder has also used custom-made tools to prevent the apparition of seams where the masks are displayed on top of the backgrounds (this was done by recreating the Mask textures from fully processed backgrounds through analyzing and exploiting the game’s data).
>> The mod is based on the Gamecube version of the game, so you'll need Dolphin to run it and an ISO of the game, plus doing a few extra things more that the article explains.

Counter-Strike: Source gets a 2019 graphics overhaul mod, available now for download
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/counter-strike-source-gets-a-2019-graphics-overhaul-mod-available-to-download/
Modder ‘gEck0_’ has released a graphics overhaul mod for Counter-Strike: Source, called Counter-Strike: Re-Source (2019). Counter-Strike: Re-Source is basically a compilation of countless textures, models, skins, shaders and more that aims to greatly improve the visuals of this 2004 Counter-Strike game.
Counter-Strike: Re-Source (2019) aims to be as close to the original vision as possible and retain its authentic art/visual style. Now obviously this could have been easier with an ESRGAN AI-enhanced mod, however it’s still cool witnessing such a more “traditional” overhaul mod.
>> Available from ModDB.

The Witcher AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack for characters, monsters and animals available for download
https://www.dsogaming.com/news/the-witcher-ai-enhanced-hd-texture-pack-for-characters-monsters-and-animals-available-for-download/
Modder ‘hub997’ has released a brand new AI-enhanced HD Texture Pack for the first The Witcher game. This pack upscales all of the textures for characters, monsters and animals in 2K. Furthermore, the modder has also provided a HD Texture Pack for skyboxes that improves the textures of sky, stars, sun and moon.
The modder claimed that he has used the textures and models that are available in the Rise of the White Wolf Enhanced Edition – Return of the White Wolf Extended Edition mod. As such, there might be some visual differences between the vanilla and this modded version.
>> Get this mod from Nexus Mods.

One modder has been adding convenient HUD removal mods to dozens of games
https://www.pcgamer.com/one-modder-has-been-adding-convenient-hud-removal-mods-to-dozens-of-games/
For everyone that has ever sought to capture the perfect candid screenshot or video clip in a game, a messy HUD can be distracting and ugly. Many games nowadays have settings to disable many or all HUD elements, but it's a cumbersome process to turn them on or off each time you want to snap a pic.
Thankfully, Nexus Mods user TheJanitor has spent the last year creating simple and convenient mods that disable and enable all HUD with a hotkey in dozens of screenshot-worthy games. First pointed out by Reddit user gAto in a now-removed post on r/Games, TheJanitor's mods include HUD toggles for Assassin's Creed Odyssey, Mad Max, Call of Duty: WWII, Hitman: Absolution, Far Cry 5, and a bunch more.

https://www.dsogaming.com/videotrailer-news/moons-of-madness-12-minutes-of-gameplay/
Madness, madness and stupidity, as Tywin Lannister would say. Madness most certainly as the title says. Now regarding stupidity, I hope not as we already had enough of it lately. Moons of Madness is a first-person, story-driven cosmic horror game. The game draws inspiration from H.P. Lovecraft. It was scheduled for a 2018 release but got delayed, and its final release date is now set for October 27th.

Monday news, part two:

Theropods is a mute adventure game about dinosaurs and spacemen
https://www.pcgamer.com/theropods-is-a-mute-adventure-game-about-dinosaurs-and-spacemen/
Theropods' trailer got me all in a lather before I realised it only exists in the purgatory of Kickstarter at the moment, and now you're all going to have to suffer along with me. It looks neat! Maybe we'll see it one of these days.

Gears of War 5 cuts all references to smoking and tobacco

The upcoming Gears of Wars 5 will feature blood, guts, guns, explosions, guns, ugly aliens, scowling men and women, guns, gunfire, guns, guns with chainsaws, and guns. What it will not have, however, is tobacco products. Anti-smoking organization Truth Initiative approached ELeague about making Gears 5 smoke-free, according to a Variety report, which in turn worked with Microsoft and The Coalition to remove all references to smoking from the game.

Bungie explains the point of Destiny 2's new 'finishing moves'
https://www.pcgamer.com/bungie-explains-the-point-of-destiny-2s-new-finishing-moves/
One of the new things coming to Destiny 2 in the Shadowkeep expansion is finishing moves. Bungie revealed them last month, describing the fight-ending maneuvers as "This awesome flourish where he actually does like, spin in front of him, has two knives, and just hit, hit, pfffft!" Furthermore, "He jumps in the air, pulls back, looks at his fist, and bssssht!"
Okay, so that should give you a general idea of what they are, in an arms-waving, wild-eyed sort of way, but how do they actually work? Bungie went into a little more detail on that aspect of it with Polygon, telling the site that when enemies fall below a certain health level, an indicator will appear to show that they can be finished.

Gibbous is a Lovecraft horror-adventure in the style of a classic Disney film
https://www.pcgamer.com/gibbous-is-a-lovecraft-horror-adventure-in-the-style-of-a-classic-disney-film/
We said last year that we're tired of Lovecraft. Sure, the man told some singularly horrific tales, but there's more to the genre than tentacles, the gaping maw of madness, and virulent racism. We want something different! Gibbous is kind of a compromise in that regard: It's a Cthulhu mythos-inspired tale of terror done in the style of an animated Disney film, complete with a talking cat.

https://www.pcgamer.com/gods-and-monsters-is-an-open-world-rpg-with-stamina-and-resource-management/
Ubisoft's E3 2019 reveal trailer for Gods & Monsters was exciting and beautiful, but it didn't tell us much about the game. A month later, Ubisoft Quebec is ready to talk about it, and it kinda sounds like Assassin's Creed through the lens of Zelda.
>> That's not a bad mix, all things considered.

DLSS support coming to Monster Hunter: World July 17
https://www.pcgamer.com/dlss-support-coming-to-monster-hunter-world-july-17/
Monster Hunter: World looks pretty dang good on PC. So good, in fact, that it hasn't been able to run at 60fps in 4K with even the beefiest graphics card. For Nvidia RTX card users, this is changing when Monster Hunter: World adds DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/monster-hunter-world-nvidia-dlss/">on July 17.

PUBG has had a rough time dealing with cheaters since its release in 2017. Hacks and exploits are always changing, so it's near-impossible to patch up every vulnerability. But PUBG's Anti-Cheat Unit in South Korea is giving it their best shot, and their intensity is a little intimidating.

Then you should check the latest rumors about Intel's next CPUs: faster, with more cores and cheaper... don't forget your salt.

CDPR responded by saying pretty much what we already have seen in games like Skyrim. You can basically attack almost anyone, except key characters tied to the story and of course children NPCs.

I really miss the days when RPG devs were creative enough to let you really do as you like - you could kill right about everyone in lot of older RPGs and finish the game.

And Fallout 1/2 even had Childkiller reputation, which gave you -30 to reaction from both good and evil NPCs and you got bounty on your head.
