Seems like the mix of dungeon crawlers and extraction shooters is becoming popular.
I genuinely don’t understand what it is that’s so compelling about a game that makes the grind its primary purpose.
We’re about six months out from the Lethal company clones and we have that to look forward to.
Duel Corp seems interesting
Lonely Space might be really good if focus more on the immersion and less on the sim
Yet another Fantasy title looks like Fantasy GTA 2 and I’m kinda into it
Dungeonborne looks kinda neat. Hope the combat is a bit more impactful than mythforce
Perennial Order looks like it’d be up pedro’s alley
Steam: New Games
“…alleged to combine mechanics from Team Fortress 2, Counter-Strike, and Dota”
Thanks, I hate it!
HL MOBA incoming!
Valve is clearly working on something, that’s obvious.
It will never see the light of day.
Yeah, Valve is pretty bad about not pruning stuff for release.
Shit gets recycled and repurposed and never renamed cuz who has time for that shit
I dunno, I think after so many years of “wen hl3” I’ve kinda just stopped caring. If it happens it happens.
I hope its good, but either way I’m not holding my breath
Rather than fanless, I want that in a low profile sub 2 slot thiccness.
DVI, know thy market.
$169 for a STFU card that can display 2160p.
Been watching some reviews of the new AMD APUs.
Were what, 1, 1.5 generations away from basic-bitch discrete GPU performance?
That is certainly a cheese shredder
I too did not expect the RasPi competitor to release an x86 gaming handheld.
I am curious about that price but I suspect it’s above the nope line for me.
Those are some low hanging squareolas
Runs an immutable version of manjaro
Those of ya’ll might remember Valve recommending it as SteamOS-at-home
Oh look, a cross-driver CI solution that isn’t mailing-lists-based.
Based on that screenshot they do have a limited number of devices at the moment, but with time and funding hopefully their library will grow
And have enough machines for everyone to use at once
Also damn you for making me read about gitlab in my off time!
Fixed building from sauce on Fedora.
Unfortunately the newer versions seem to not build at all on Haiku.
There’s a multiplayer fix as well. No more invalid user data
Disney gets more IP in front of more 13-25 year olds.
Tencent currently owns 40% of Epic and Sony has another 5%.
Disney uses Unreal Engine for their dynamic screens of green.
Preemptive strike to prevent a Unity style license change?
If you’re after the kids, they are all probably on Fortnite.
And after posting losses, I’m sure Epic welcomes the money.
Now that they’re starting to lose some of their properties to the public domain, the mouse gotta diversify
Historically they haven’t fared too well running their own studios, so farming it out to Epic makes sense
Fortnite Disneyland when? de_smallworld
