Spent two hours trying to get…

…OUTRIDERS to work. I’m not gonna snarl over it, because first-day stuff happens; but I’m just getting a black screen. I am on the verge of uninstalling, then installing the game again, just on general principles. In fact, strike that: I might as well just go ahead and do that now. Grr. Arrgh.

…Okay, maybe a little snarling.

The CYBERPUNK 2077 1.2 patch has dropped.

Lots of QOL repairs, apparently. I haven’t checked it out yet because the patch is pretty damn big, too (almost 29 gigs). Although… is that big, these days? A game that size would have been starkly incomprehensible to me, twenty years ago, let alone a patch.

PS: The Cyberpunk 2077 patch is so late because some hackers decided to try and do some ransomware. …And there’s been nothing on that story since. It’s interesting, really.

Penny Arcade e-racing tonight!

I missed last week, but I’m looking forward to it tonight. I’ve kind of gotten into watching e-racing, mostly because the stream’s funny. No sponsorship this season, though. I think they did it, and it was fun, and now they’re not real interested in doing it for a while. Which is cool. At least I actually got to do it.

Racing starts at 11 PM Eastern. Link here.

Finally finished CYBERPUNK 2077 (B+).

Overall: CYBERPUNK 2077 is a good concept and a good game, but it needed a bit more quality control work before release.

But since I bought it for PC (and made sure I had a machine that could run it), I’m pretty much shrugging that off.

Penny Arcade e-race tonight! (Sans sponsorship, alas.)

The sponsorship had contracted for four cars, four weeks, and that ended last week. Tonight’s is more or less the last race of the season; next week there’s a silly car race, and they start the new one two weeks from now. I’ll know then if I’ll be doing a sponsorship under the new rates. In the mean time… I’ve kind of gotten into watching the races. They’re fun. Some good folks doing ’em, too.
