But it looks, visually, like garbage.

Don't let that sway you. Nidhogg is one of the most fun multiplayer indie games I've played over the last couple of years. Especially local multiplayer, it's hilarious. :)

I can account to a whole 24 minutes of gameplay here. Steam timer seems to be off as I participated in multiple of the Betas :P


Either way, the game lacked depth to me. Gun-play wasn't satisfying, and the anti-gravity zones didn't bring much at all to the combat.


EDIT: Spelling

I see your 24 minutes and raise you 29!


Which is probably not accurate either. I cut my internet FPS teeth on Cliffy B's arenas in UT games but I just didn't like the feel of Lawbreakers at all. It seemed like there was no fluidity in movement and it all felt clumsy, I just couldn't get into it.


(BTW - I also played more than timer here suggests - only an hour or two in two different betas).


(edit - changed words & stuff)

Gotta give them dues for still supporting it though, even if it has been a DLC fest up to now. VR heists could be cool.

What if I don't like the game on offer and want to give it to a friend? NVIDIA are consistently coming up with new ways to annoy customers.Reply

Since Nvidia can't add the game to your library automatically (at least not on Steam, don't know if they made something with Ubisoft), I would assume that you'd get your key after verifying that you own the hardware it comes with. After that you should be able to give the key to a friend.


But I don't know, I'm just guessing.

The Steam Link was recently on sale for £15, I bought mine last year and streaming over Powerline LAN at 60fps/1080p is solid. To me, this NVIDIA tablet is overpriced & overkill tbh.Reply
Dave James Avatar

I've always had serious input lag issues with the Steam Link, even over a gigabit Powerline setup. Playing games which require split-second timing, such as driving or sports games, I found impossible.


This is the first streaming device where I can game with no compromise whether I'm streaming from or playing directly on my home rig.


But if you're playing slow-paced games the Steam Link's low-grade hardware is okay. I did enjoy messing around with the Raspberry Pi as a Steam streamer for a while too ;)

.. and now what's this I hear about Freesync 2/HDR. :)Reply
Dave James Avatar

Yeah, there are rumblings we might hear something about that either later this afternoon or alongside the Vega preview on Thursday.


Still unsure about what this new kind of HDR will bring to gaming, mind. I'm preparing for the sort of overblown implementations we had to put up with when devs first got their hands on HDR and bloom...
