    If I knew that all these console like exclusives were coming I probably wouldn’t have spent $700 on my gfx card for my pc and picked up a mid tier and a PS4 🙂

    I disagree. You have access to a vast selection of cheap PC games, and your beefy card means, that you will enjoy them for many years to come. (I am still using an AMD R9 290 from 2015, with my Ryzen 1700x). With a PC/PS4 combination you have access to nearly all the new games. So even the slim version of PS4 will be fine for the exclusive games.

    They are shielded from outer space, with a 2 km thick layer of ice. And many complex earth organisms thrive in below zero temperatures. So these two moons are prime candidates for finding extra terrestrial life (even complex one)!!

    PS4 is a very good console, with some very unique games. You should go straight for the Pro version, even if you intend to play on a 1080p resolution.

    On the E3 front, Starfield and Starlink, were the games I was interested in!! Especially in the case of of Starlink, a.k.a Skylanders in Space.

    Finding dead microbes, and discovering complex organic life, are two entirely different things. But I really would like to see, what’s going on, inside the underground oceans of Europa, and Iapetus!!!

    Are you going to add an “View New Posts Since Your Last Visit” function, or is it already implemented?

    It’s always been that way, D1 – what costs a dollar in the States costs a pound in the UK, pretty much.
    As for ordering components from the US, different taxes/duties apply so there’s little or no saving.

    Not to mention, that you pay additional import taxes, when you buy something outside of EU!!

    I was able to pick it up for $188, its $233 right now.

    You are in luck. Mine cost nearly 270 euros!!!!! Prices on GPU’s and memory have skyrocketed!!! An rx 580 costs nearly 400 euros!!!

    Way to go!!
    I bought the parts to build mine. Ryzen 1700x cooled with a Noctua NHU12s, on an Asus ROG Strix X370. Same memory as your configuration (and extremely expensive to be honest!!) I kept my old AMD R9 290, since I cannot find a a decent prized RX Vega 56, anywhere in Europe (in those e-shop that can deliver to Greece at least). I am still using 1080p, for gaming. No need for me to upgrade to 4K.

    Aye the developer went on to do StarFox for Nintendo.

     

    And developed the Super FX chip, in the process!!!

    Still in beta!! But they are adding some minor new requested features, and getting rid of bugs. Even at the current state, you can finish the main storyline!!

    I think it needed a PPC and a Voodoo card, for hardware requirements!! You could build a decent PC with all that money, at the time. (Besides I consider the 68k machines, as the Real Amigas)!!

    IIRC StarGlider 2 only worked on the A500 and did not work on the later Amiga+ or the A1200, although I have had a play around with it on emulation a few years back and was impressed by the seamless planet transfer which was a couple of years ahead of Frontiers.

     

     

    If you have your real A1200 around, you can play the whdload versions of both Starglider games.   :gaming:

    Think it pretty dead now and I resigned myself to the loss of the $50 I put up for the crowd funding, but it the way it goes, some you win some you lose.

     
    Same here. But considering what happened to the developer (assuming he’s telling the truth), I think it was money well spent!!
