Oh, dear. They've got you!

Here's hoping but I think it might end up as a situation of current gen consoles holding it back. We will see though. The mods do like crazy nice. Hopefully the PC version will impress.

Also here's the trailer that got leaked.

https://streamable.com/ra1a1h

It's been years since I played them but, unless my memory is worse than I thought, that trailer features scenes from not only Crysis but also Crysis Warhead, and Crytek denied the rumors about Warhead being included in the remaster.

And it's hard to judge the quality of the graphics from the video, it's quite compressed and only 720p. It doesn't look bad, but it's not mindblowing either.

Windows 10 May Update could boost your gaming performance for free
https://www.pcgamer.com/windows-10-may-update-could-boost-your-gaming-performance-for-free/
AMD and Nvidia have released new drivers adding support for a feature Microsoft introduced with the May 2020 update of Windows 10, an update that still isn't available to everyone. The feature in question is Hardware-accelerated GPU scheduling (HAGS for short), and it basically passes memory management control from the CPU to the GPU. That should theoretically free up the CPU a little and can potentially equate to an small performance boost.
Any boost you might see will be dependent on the hardware you have at your disposal though. According to various early reports it seems to help budget oriented hardware more than those on the bleeding edge. There's a chance that game performance can be negatively impacted too, as former PCG hardware guru, Jarred Walton, discovered over on Tom's Hardware when he tested Nvidia GPU Hardware Scheduling with AMD and Intel CPUs.

Persona 4 Golden mod restores cut Yosuke romance
https://www.pcgamer.com/persona-4-golden-yosuke-romance-mod/
A long-lost romance in Persona 4 Golden is making its debut on PC, and all thanks to a modder. The Yosuke Romance mod is still pretty far from release, but it will restore a voice line discovered in the original Persona 4 Golden files on Vita into a scene where Yosuke admits his deep affection for the player protagonist.
The cut scene is particularly notable due to the Persona series' lack of explicitly queer relationship options otherwise. Take a look at the video above to see the work-in-progress version of the mod in action. While the voice line triggers correctly, the written dialogue still doesn't match. Done or not, you can give the mod a try, just to see how it works.

Don't Slay the Spire, defend it! This mod turns you evil so you can fight the invading heroes
https://www.pcgamer.com/dont-slay-the-spire-defend-it-this-mod-turns-you-evil-so-you-can-fight-the-invading-heroes/
Instead of fighting your way to the top of the Spire to slay it, how about starting at the top and fighting your way down to protect it from invaders? That's the idea behind the Slay the Spire: Downfall mod, which lets you align with the Corrupt Heart and destroy the do-gooder heroes trying to destroy it.
Slimes and Sneks and other monsters have been modded into playable characters in Slay The Spire before, but in Downfall's new mode you're actually on the side of evil. The Heart is the one who awakens you and sends you on a trip down the Spire to defend it. Check out the mod's trailer above.

You can now swim in ponds, rivers, and oceans with this Stardew Valley mod
https://www.pcgamer.com/you-can-now-swim-in-ponds-rivers-and-oceans-with-this-stardew-valley-mod/
I can't imagine the fatigue of working on the farm during Stardew Valley's sweltering Summers, so why not give your pixelated farmer a bit of a break? With this Stardew Valley mod simply called 'Swim', you can now take a refreshing dip in Pelican Town's various cooling waters. Created by aedenthorn, this mod lets you swim anywhere where there is water, meaning you can now jump into any river, pond, lake and ocean you choose.
To begin swimming, you need to approach any pool of water, press the J key and your character will switch into swimwear and jump right in. And that's not even the best part—not only can you now traverse water, this mod also lets you dive beneath the surface of the ocean and mountain lake.

Apparently, they used global illumination for the lighting in game. Not worth the trade off imo. Geometry has taken a big hit and so has the art direction.

Also, that's pretty sick tech from Facebook (I can't believe I said that. Stealth porn here we come. This is the future.

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.
