  1. The above screenshot comes from the Borderlands 3 Epic Games Store product page, confirming that the game will make use of Denuvo Anti-Tamper DRM. It remains to be seen whether Denuvo may cause performance issues for Borderlands 3. It was previously reported that some users experienced performance increases in Denuvo-free versions of Devil May Cry V. This announcement of Denuvo for Borderlands 3 is particularly disappointing, as we have had several high profile releases on Epic Games Store which are DRM-free, for example Rebel Galaxy Outlaw, Journey and Outer Wilds. Borderlands 3 comes out September 13 2019, and is an Epic Games Store exclusive.
  2. The goal of PCGamingWiki is to fix PC gaming. Did you ever have a game that just wouldn’t run? Spent days looking for fixes, only to find abandoned forum posts with nothing more than “nevermind, fixed it”? Our aim is to make that a thing of the past. One of our newest and most ambitious goals is to cover every single major PC game on the day of release. To do this, we have developed an Assignments system to distribute review codes to volunteers who complete our wiki fix articles. However, many review codes are still unclaimed and we need help - we are looking for more volunteers to dedicate their time to help complete our wiki fix articles, and in return receive the reward of the games themselves. You can see the full Assignments table for all future and past games too. We have assigned 413 games so far, and the count increases every day. Our assignments have led to the creation of ultra-widescreen mods for games like Heavy Rain, World War Z, Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night and FOV fixes for games like Team Sonic Racing and The Sinking City. If you would like to help, we would love to hear from you! Don't know much about wiki editing or testing PC games? Don't worry. You can join our Discord (#articles channel) and ask for feedback and help, as our community would be more than happy to assist. To apply for an Assignment, read the general information page and please apply for any outstanding Assignments or other games you are interested in. Where do our review codes come from? We try to reach out to every games publisher of every notable PC game to ask for review codes. Many publishers include us on their lists, but sadly we are often ignored or rejected because we are too small or we don't produce 'real reviews'. However, we would argue that our wiki fix articles are a very valuable service for PC gamers. In situations where we can't get review codes from the publisher, we will buy them out of pocket using our funds (primarily from donations and Patreon funds). We are also lucky to be in partnership with GOG.com who will step in to provide game keys, and Gamesplanet who provide account funds to help us make purchases.

    The Patches Scrolls to the article infobox

    I don't think this is quite the right fit, the individual patches could be directly linked (or mirrored on our Files system).

    Proposal: VR Template - Add VR Driver VorpX

    Looks like you've been added to the Trusted group, and that you've been making great progress on adding all the VorpX info. Let us know if you need anything else.

    Fan translations for some games

    Brilliant, great job!

    Fan translations for some games

    This is very impressive, thank you for the list. We will work on adding this to the Localization template on the wiki. If you find more you can post as a reply to this post.
  7. That's quite interesting, it seems like quite a huge vulnerability with LOCALSYSTEM privileges. I can't see why it was rejected as being out of scope by Valve. It could've been used to cause some real mayhem.
  8. It looks like to join the class action lawsuit you need to have 'suffered' some financial loss (beyond having your account details hacked). Not great press for Epic!
  9. I was really not impressed with Thrones of Brittania as a Total War Saga.. I was looking forward to having another Total War set in Great Britain, but it turned out to be not a great 'Attila' expansion which introduced some mechanics which made the game substantially worse (estates). I was expecting more of a 'Fall of the Samurai' type standalone game. Hopefully they learn from their mistakes and do something vaguely interesting with the next entry.. but Greek states have been done to death in Total War already.
  10. Rachid Lotf created this fantastic rendering of a late 90s/early 2000s PC gaming room. This reminds me so much of my own memory of PC gaming - big beige box, thick CRT monitor, an obsession with Neon Genesis Evangelion, and large quantities of classic big boxed PC games. There a short interview with the artist on PC Gamer and it's amazing to find out that the artist is from Morocco, which goes to show how PC gamers from all countries have a shared collective experience and nostalgia. You can find more artwork and even order prints from Rachid's ArtStation account, including another artwork called PC Master Race:
  11. DuckTales Remastered is going be removed from all digital storefronts including Steam on August 8th, according to this official tweet from Capcom USA: This gives us barely over one day's notice to quickly snap up this game for the last time on Steam. Luckily Steam keys should continue to be available on official resellers like Gamesplanet where it is conveniently on a 75% flash sale. Make sure to buy a piece of history before they run out of keys!
  12. These are only the numbers for the 1st day of refunds, I suspect the number is at least in the thousands. SidAlpha mentioned a 4000 refund estimate. The real number has yet to be released.
  13. If SidAlpha's sources are to be believed it means that 4000+ out of 20,000 pre-orders have been cancelled due to this EGS announcement.

  15. I would encourage people to watch the Asghan stream as it's hilarious and short (30mins). Amazing what a broken game it is and what does/doesn't work from the era of early 3D platform/action games in the vein of Tomb Raider but amusingly bad. Watch #ESASummer19 starts TODAY at 14:00 CEST! Schedule can be found at https://esamarathon.com/schedule from ESAMarathon on www.twitch.tv
  16. Thanks so much for posting this! Please come back and post highlights/updates as well. Can you also tell us a bit more about the prep work you did for the games, did they need to be modified to be tracked correctly?
  17. This seems like a nice feature as the standard UWP applications are so locked down and opaque and difficult to modify.
  18. This is something we are aware of and we are working with Skip to help resolve - we will be ready to write a news article soon once our plans are in place. In the meantime please feel free to make submissions of your own on our News section. We are opent o writing up things like dgVoodoo update which was a couple of weeks ago - but there doesn't seem to be a changelog, what's changed exactly?
  19. I can't believe Super Monkey Ball has never come to the PC before, especially considering Sega have done a good job with PC ports lately of their Japanese games. Console release date is October 29th 2019, hopefully we'll see the PC version come out around the same time.
  20. The people who made this change.org petition to release Tetris Effect on Steam are gonna be seriously disappointed!
  21. 90 FPS is such an arbitrary cap, it's not like there are any monitors that run at 90 Hz. At least cap it something sensibile like 120 Hz or 144 Hz.
  22. The actual trailer and gameplay for this looks fantastic. I don't fancy doing another playthrough of SC1 but it looks like such a fresh coat of paint:
  23. Many thanks to @Aemony and Kaldaien for organising linking back from the Special K mod to PCGamingWiki, you can see this in action in Octopath Traveler version of the mod. I like to think PCGamingWiki is more in the 'Computer' section of the bookshop rather than 'Self-Help' section :D.
  24. I'm quite a big fan of Attack on Titan and really enjoy the anime. I've been keeping my eye out on the PC game for quite a while, however it is quite clear that they are taking the piss with the pricing model for this game. Some background: Attack on Titan 1 was released in August 2016. Attack on Titan 2 was released in March 2018. AOT1 does get 50% sales every now and then. However, from what I've read, AOT2 is basically AOT1 with some additional content (and some first person character changes) and makes AOT1 completely redundant. Furthermore AOT2 is basically full price game (£54.99) with the only sale being August 2018 (30% off on Steam) thus far. On July 5th 2019, they have just released AOT2 DLC called 'Final Battle' which basically covers the entire 3rd season anime content. It's being sold for an eye watering £34.99, which is virtually a 'full priced' game in and of itself. Of course as PC gamers we expect deep discounts every now and then but we are certainly not entitled to them. If Koei Tecmo want to never deep discount then that's perfectly within their remit. However this pricing structure is basically taking the piss, the cost for the full experience on Steam are: AOT 1: £49.99 AOT 2: £54.99 Final Battle DLC: £34.99 Total: £139.97 If you bought AOT1, AOT2 and the DLC - this in total might make up the content of 1.5 of a 'full' game.
  25. Classic games The Lion King (1994) and Disney's Aladdin (1993) have been delisted from Steam without so much as a word. Thankfully GOG.com have given a short warning of just over 24 hours in this forum post announcement : Another Disney game, The Jungle Book, has been delisted from Steam but still available from GOG.com - who knows if more Disney games will be delisted in the future?
