What’s Another Year
Another year? To explain in short, my annual hosting subscription of this site is at the end of September. While I had my doubts to finally pull to plug I’ve decided to give this no-reach-site just another go for a year. After that? Not sure what will happen to be honest since I don’t feel I’ve been using my own platform like I should.
Anyway, recently I decided to replace my old toaster (read: PC) with a new one. I went for a Ryzen 3700X in combination with an RTX 2060 Super so I’m back on the master race train. I hope it will be a good investment. If only Sony would decide to release their exclusives on PC as well (very unlikely, but please let these speculations be true!). That would be just awesome. Learn from Microsoft in that regard boys!
As far as games go I’ve been playing the first hour of Control, a game by Remedy Entertainment that I got free with my graphics card. Though only just in I already can tell you it’s a damn fine game. Only small issue I have with it, is I can’t run it with every graphical setting at max!? Don’t you just love PC gaming? Seems like currently available hardware is just not ready yet for raytracing. Need more power!
Another game I’ve been playing on my new rig is Assetto Corsa Competizione. While I wasn’t able to run it on my old computer, the new one obviously runs it without any effort. And oh boy, ACC is one damn fine racing simulator. While content wise it’s a bit on the small side cause it only features the Blancpain GT Series with only a handful of tracks, there’s something about this game that just feels right/real. Sound, camera view, laser scanned tracks, good AI, … Everything just clicks!
Oh, and before I forget. Borderlands 3 was released a couple of weeks ago and cause I already had the Epic Games Launcher installed (thanks Control!) I had to buy it. Don’t leave this game because of the Epic exclusivity. It’s plays good, it looks great and is just fun to play solo or in coop. Me and Charko (yes, he’s still alive!) been hitting Pandora together and we are having a blast. Can’t wait to dive back in, though in my solo play I’m hard stuck at the Katagawa Boss Fight. It’s about time me and Charko tag along again so we can go balls out on this one (huehuehue).
Aaaah … Been really enjoying my game time lately. Going full circle, what’s another year? Great, now I have Johnny Logan playing in my head. Don’t ask!
