Warzone developers are walking out today to protest layoffs
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/warzone-developers-are-walking-out-today-to-protest-layoffs/
Warzone studio Raven Software’s quality assurance team is walking out today, alongside other members of the studio’s staff, to protest the recent termination of a dozen colleagues. At least 12 testers were told on Friday that their contracts would be ending early next year, despite the battle royale’s continued success. Activision announced in April that Warzone had surpassed 100 million players.

BioShock 4 leaks point to an Antarctic city
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/bioshock-4-leaks-point-to-an-antarctic-city/
BioShock 4 is coming eventually. Publisher 2K confirmed it was in development back in 2019, but said little more than that it would be several years away. (...)
Now Youtuber Colin Moriarty has provided the first substantial grist to what will doubtless become an ongoing rumour mill. Speaking on his podcast Sacred Symbols, Moriarty says: "It takes place in a 1960s Antarctic city called Borealis. [The game's] codenamed 'Parkside'… I’ve been told that the development team has incredible latitude to get it right."
>> This is old news by now, but I still hadn't posted an article about it.

Leave Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker's grapes alone
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/leave-final-fantasy-14-endwalkers-grapes-alone/
If you managed to get past the login queues for Final Fantasy 14: Endwalker and made your way through the main story, you might have stumbled upon some grapes. These grapes aren't your typical grapes; truthfully, they're more like crystal obelisks with the image of the spherical fruit plastered on each face. These grapes are low poly and proud.

Survival game Icarus had a bumpy launch but a huge weekend
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/survival-game-icarus-had-a-bumpy-launch-but-a-huge-weekend/
Survival game Icarus launched on Friday and was gobbled up by survival fans, quickly climbing the Steam charts and drawing over 50,000 concurrent players on Sunday. It wasn't all smooth sailing, though: Icarus currently has a 'Mixed' review score on Steam, and many of the complaints revolve around performance issues, optimization problems, crashes, and bugs.

Halo Infinite PC Tech Review: Xbox Series X vs PC + Best Settings + Performance Analysis

Certainly a number of issues such as 10900k dropping to sub 60fps at times but typically does float over 100 fps, in game fps limiter/vsync being terrible and it's also very AMD GPU optimized. PC also doesn't have VRS where as Series X does so it can't be directly compared although VRS does have some not so good artifacting on Series X. Overall, needs more patching as Alex says he might pause his play through until issues have been fixed.

Additional list of issues in both SP and MP at launch (thread is a bit ranty):

"Their review brings some interesting results, but gaming aside, this card is actually better in crypto mining than RTX 3060, which pretty much kills this card the moment it launches."

Guess it doesn't have LHR...

So my 4k 32 Inch 155hz monitor did arrive.

I'll post my thoughts on it later.

Yeah, I wonder where all those extra GPUs went...

So in time for their new cards? How convenient! Now we just have to wait and see if the same d*cks that tak eall the supply now, will do the same next year.

I hope to God Nvidia is better prepared for bots and scalpers next generation. I don't care about having it day 1, just let me backorder for MSRP and send it when you have stock ffs.



Yeah, well, Nvidia may get better prepared for their own store, but most cards are sold through other retailers. And most of those don't give a sh!t about that because, in the end, a sale is a sale.

Now, if one or both actually managed to put hardware limitations to mining, making them mostly useless for that, now that would be a game changer.

By the way, remember that there were some games that didn't work with Intel's Alder Lake because of their DRM? Well, now that list of games has shrunk to just 3:

Alder Lake DRM issue fixed for all but three games
https://www.pcgamer.com/uk/alder-lake-drm-issue-fixed-for-all-but-three-games/
(...)

Thus on Alder Lake’s release we published this rather extensive list of games that just didn’t work on Intel’s 12th gen processors. Well good news, Alder Lake fans, because that list is now down to three. 

Intel updated its official support article (spotted by Tom’s Hardware) to confirm that Assassin’s Creed: Valhalla, Fernbus Simulator, and Madden 22 are the only known games still facing DRM issues. It’s a shame to see such new games on the list at all but at least that’s all that remains from the original 90 titles that weren't able to boot. Plus it’s very likely that these will be patched soon as well, plus there are still other ways around the issue, especially if you've got a Gigabyte motherboard.
