    Best streaming solution - AMD and non-Steam games

    I tried this tonight, downloaded Forza 5 on Gamepass. I can get it streaming, the only problem is that the trigger buttons on my Xbox controller aren't detected :-\

    Best streaming solution - AMD and non-Steam games

    Didn't know you could do that! I'll give it a try as I have steamlink working and setup with an old Xbox 360 controller

    Best streaming solution - AMD and non-Steam games

    I've been trying to find out recently (without much success), what the best solution is for streaming non-Steam games from my PC to my TV. These days I play more games through Windows XBOX Live subscription and Epic than I do through Steam. I've got an AMD setup so Nvidia shield isn't the best...

    DirectStorage - does it matter which drive you use?

    Although there are not many games yet taking advantage of DirectStorage, I have a question about setting it up. I currently have Windows running off a SATA drive connected to my first PCIe drive slot, and a secondary PCI4 NVMe drive connected to the second slot, which holds all of my games. To...

    What's your personal GOAT ? (Game of all time)

    Definately the golden era of PC gaming for me that. 1995-2002 had so many great, innovative, games and the communities that went with them as well.

    What's your personal GOAT ? (Game of all time)

    Would have to be World of Warcraft, back in the Burning Crusade and Wrath of the Lich King era. Honorable mentions for Football Manager (all versions), Battlefield 2, Civilisation (all versions), Quake, and Red Alert 2

    *** Steam Sale - confirmed by Valve****

    Purchased both BF2042 and Cyberpunk 2077 on the Epic sale. I refunded Battlefield after 20 minutes playing it (third time attempting it, just don't like the gameplay), and Cyberpunk without playing it - I realised that I was never going to play it having never been hooked to play more than a few...

    *** The Official Battlefield 2042 thread***

    Currently available for £22 on Epic store. I gave it a try when it launched (free 12 hour EA demo or something) and didn't buy it as I found the maps\graphics quite bland, the squad play and matchmaking system poor, lack of joystick support for aircraft, and a load of pointless fluff like the...

    *** Steam Sale - confirmed by Valve****

    With Gamepass, the Epic store giveaways, and hundreds of games already in libraries, Steam sales have really lost their luster.

    *** Cyberpunk 2077 ***

    Cyberpunk is currently £14.99 on the Epic store. Is it worth a punt at that price?

    Chivalry 2

    Free Chivalry 2 weekend, available on Epic Games store. Definately worth giving a go if only so there are more noobs for me to farm this weekend ^^

    *** Steam Sale - confirmed by Valve****

    Really feels like the Steam sales benefits aren't what they used to be. There are so many offers available on the various stores now, free games from Epic, and xbox game pass with basically 100's of games for £8\month (or less if you do the VPN tricks) that the value from Steam sales has plummeted.

    What PC games are you playing?

    Still play Chivalry 2 (level 52 now) and Football Manager. I hoped Battlefield 2042 would fill a gap in my gaming rotation but I don't get on with it, and I've also not made much progress in Diablo 2 after I died, left the game, and returned to find all my gear gone (not a bug, it's a gameplay...

    **** Official Microsoft Flight Simulator Thread ****

    With DX12 the game became unplayable for me. I switched back to DX11 and performance is on par with before the patch.

    *** The Official Battlefield 2042 thread***

    I've found that even thought the graphics are very crisp, the overall art direction is glossy, cartoony, and bland which leads overall to a poor graphical experience.

    *** The Official Battlefield 2042 thread***

    I've been trying the 10 hour EA Play demo that comes with Xbox game pass. I was really tempted to buy this before I tried it as I loved Battlefield 2 back in the day, I poured thousands of hours into it and would love an updated Battlefield game to get into. Unfortunately this isn't it. I can...

    PC Game Pass (was Xbox Game Pass for PC)

    As the Xbox game pass comes with free EA Play, you actually get a 10 hour full trial of Battlefield 2042. 10 hours should be enough to see whether you agree with the pelters the game is receiving without having to pay £50+ for it!
