Lately there have been too many things that just don't fit in the narrow focus of PC Upgrading, which should mainly be about buying specific parts. So I thought I would create a new Post to encompass everything happening in a broader category of general topics.

The Seagate drives aren't looking good, It seems their 4, 8 & 12tb drives have had bad reliability issues,
I just bought a 6tb Seagate Barracuda myself, I've been getting buyers remorse as I've seen the 6tb WD Red on sale for only an extra £20 since then which the extended warranty alone would justify.

As well as the new 6tb drive I have a 3tb Seagate drive installed, along with a 1tb WD Red I could install.
I also have a pair of broken 2tb Seagate drives. One was my fault & I'm not sure about the other.

Yep. I definitely wouldn't be buying Seagate anymore after reading that article and hearing about your own personal failures.

From what I get from those statistics is that Seagate drives are actually pretty good, going by the annualized failure rate.

I myself never used a drive over 2 TB yet, but the only failures I had where two WD drives. My Barracudas are just chugging along nicely. My 500GB one is almost 8 years old now, without any issue.

Yep. All the big corporations and international businesses are bending over backwards to kiss China's ass. Otherwise they get banned from the Chinese markets and miss out on the lucrative cash cow it is. This means zero tolerance for any support or sympathy against China's interests including what's happening in Hong Kong.

I don't think this story is true. There's just not $1.4 million worth of options to upgrade any character in any Game. Plus if the ignorant buyer only spent $552, why would a judge award $12,000+ in damages to him?

One former male employee said that Riot’s “bro culture” is more pronounced behind closed doors, and hurts men too: One of Riot’s male senior leaders regularly grabbed his genitals, the source said, adding, “If he walked into a meeting with no women he’d just fart on someone’s face.”

Cliff Bleszinski Says He Made LawBreakers Too "Woke"

"One big epiphany I had was that I pushed my own personal political beliefs in a world that was increasingly divided.

Instead of the story being 'this game looks neat' it became 'this is the game with the 'woke bro' trying to push his hackey politics on us with gender neutral bathrooms.' Instead of 'these characters seem fun' it was 'this is the studio with the CEO who refuses to make his female characters sexier.' Instead of 'who am I going to choose' it became 'white dude shoehorns diversity in his game and then smells his own smug farts in interviews' instead of just letting the product ... speak for itself."

Yeah, I saw this too. Glad you shared it before I did. I have a huge backlog of various posts ( including this one ) that I've set aside until later.

Hopefully an future Games thinking "wokeness" is what Gamers want, will have a similar fate.

I think some games fit Consoles better, while others fit PC more. Games developed for both formats may suffer from compromises.

A console game is played sitting in a couch, often with other people in the same couch. The experience should be more of a social nature, like casually watching a movie together. Maybe that's why such games contain so much handholding --the player is simply distracted by chatting with his company all the time.

A PC game is played sitting alone in a chair (though there may be friends online). The experience should be more immersed and focused, like reading a novel. Maybe that's why PC-exclusive games are a little more demanding of the player.

It's great news but with PC hardware prices going up as they are the way the consoles could tempt PC gamers is by having full mouse & keyboard support. I bought a PS4 a while back along with a Xim Apex which is meant to offer mouse & keyboard support but I couldn't get it to feel right (latency) so I ended up selling the PS4 & the Xim Apex now sits in a draw wasting away.

Some good news

EA recently put most of it's Origin only titles on to Steam which is good news but the really good news is that they now fully support Steam features like Steam achievements on most of the newer games, Older games like Dead Space 3 & Mass effect 3 also got them so I'll be replaying them.

EA games on Steam work like Ubisoft games do so if you buy games on Steam that you already own on Origin your progress is moved to Steam.

Over the weekend Mass Effect Andromeda, Dragon Age Inquisition & Star Wars Battlefront 2 were on sale all available for under £10 each so purchasing them on Steam doesn't have to break the bank as long as you wait for a discount.

True, at least if you have something suitable to put them on. Haven't tried a "lapboard" myself, are they really stable enough? https://www.ign.com/articles/best-lapboards-for-gaming

Was the latency due to the Xim Apex or the PS4 alone (even when using the handheld controller)? Is there no way to use wired connection between console, keyboard and mouse?

Good article! Seems the writer is trans herself, which makes it even better.

Cyberpunk 1977's marketing team are expert trolls knowing exactly how to stir up max viral attention. No expense has been spared: apparently the game's infamous character creator menu is completely useless since the whole game is in 1st person (including the cut scenes), I can only assume they included it for PR purposes.

Why aren't the AMD video cards getting any news?

Don't they usually perform within the same perimeters and sell cheaper?

Not that I would buy one as I am solidly an Nvidia fan, but I'm just saying.

This was worse than I thought, California really is going to Hell in a handbasket! I suppose the inhabitants only have themselves to blame, but I feel sorry for the junkies.

California's PC Prohibition makes you wonder if similar policies will spread to the rest of the world, and what the response from Nvidia and the gaming industry will be.

If you care about older titles PC Games and had wanted to upgrade, the new upcoming 12th generation may be the one to avoid. My advice is to get the current 11th generation while you still can. There is additional information coming why the 12th generation, including the RTX 4000 series of GPUs, are both going to be very expensive and hard to get.
