Blaster Master Zero, a great PC port by Inti Creates, developers of the Azure Striker Gunvolt franchiseBy AnotherGills
Blaster Master Zero, initially a title released exclusively for the Nintendo Switch and Nintendo 3DS in 2017, has finally launched on Steam, with a promotional launch price of $8.99 USD. After June 21st, this will go up to $9.99 USD.
Inti Creates developed this self-published re-imagining of the Sunsoft NES classic, Blaster Master.
On release day, Blaster Master Zero's PC version is leaps and bounds ahead of their first foray into PC development, Azure Striker Gunvolt, featuring 60 FPS gameplay and fully remappable controller support.
When Azure Striker Gunvolt launched on Steam in 2015, it was marred with a frame rate cap of 30 FPS, random peformance drops unrelated to hardware, and minimal controller support. However, the game was slowly patched over the years, removing the performance drops and adding more robust controller support and mapping.
In 2017, Azure Striker Gunvolt was re-released on the Nintendo Switch, with a locked frame rate of 60 FPS. While this angered many PC gamers who had purchased the title, Inti Creates did not provide any comment on the matter.
Eventually, in May 2018, Inti Creates released a patch for the Steam version that increased the frame rate to 60 FPS, giving it parity with the Switch version. 60 FPS support was clamored for before the Steam version even launched, and after nearly three years, the developers finally implemented it.
In the present, Inti Creates announced that their upcoming project, "Gunvolt Chronicles: Luminous Avenger iX", formerly announced to be releasing exclusively for the Nintendo Switch, would also be receiving a simultaneous Steam release on September 26, 2019. Along with their recent releases of "Gal*Gun 2" and "Bloodstained: Curse of the Moon", Inti Creates is clearly making a stronger push with their IPs to the PC platform.
PC players are being properly respected by Inti Creates, and this fully-functioning release shows it.
The latest Steam update has enabled 'Steam Remote Play' which is the new name for 'In-Home Streaming' which now works outside the home. Here are the details:
Streaming games from your PC to outside the home was always possible using aplications like Moonlight or even setting up a VPN with Steam's In-Home Streaming. However this new update makes everything work natively with remote devices including Steam installed on PCs or Steam Link mobile app for iOS and Android.

The Steam and GOG versions of FlatOut are the v1.0 version. This is the v1.1 patch for FlatOut that works with the digital releases of the game: Steam & GOG.
Originally posted by Clya900, the patch was missing 2 files are now included in this download, patch1.bfs, and patch.ini. Without these files, the game would fail to load, and shows a Runtime error. The game now has been tested on the Steam version, and works perfectly fine, however the GOG is untested, but should work just as well.
Original patch notes below:
FlatOut PC patch v1.1
To install the patch:
Copy the Flatout.exe, patch1.bfs and patch.ini files to the root of the install folder (by default this is c:\program files\empire interactive\flatout) and run the game.
The following items have been fixed or improved:
* Fix for the nVidia 66.93 drivers. The game no longer crashes when a race is started. The game has also been tested up to the 67.03 drivers with no problems found.
* Engine fire burns aligned to the car's coordinates, e.g. when the car is upside down, flames go down.
* Tuning menu: BHP meter and colors randomly switch when changing profile.
* Flip back and forth to statistics screen and the BHP grows bug.
* Force feedback slows game in some cases.
* 5.1 sound support is not working on some setups.
* Disconnects when returning to the lobby in multiplayer games.
* When the game briefly minimizes before starting a multiplayer game, sometimes gives a blue screen (this is quite rare, but it does happen sometimes)
* Only 2 players can play if NetLimiter is installed.
* Bug with public ip detection, if the commandline network options are used.
* Enabled a switch to allow the player to turn off ragdoll in single player (located in the Options Menu).
* Enabled multiplayer destruction derby.
Hi, my name's Voxarp. I learned of PCGamingWiki from the late TotalBiscuit's videos back in the day and I used to help contribute from time to time but now days I'm mostly just a user. Thanks to everyone involved for providing such a great wiki!
Recently Valve has introduced a new feature of SteamPlay called Proton which is a variant of WINE that allows Linux and possibly OSX to run Windows-only games. It's an exciting time!
What the community seems to desperately need is a resource to:
Report game compatibility, possibly with a WineDB type rating of Bronze/Silver/Gold/Platinum - right now all we have is a spreadsheet on Google Docs. Present fixes and workarounds for games that don't work out of the box. Provide clear delineation between Proton versions, a game might work properly on one Proton version but not another. Possibly provide an overview page with statistics on the percentage of games working, with a table that lets you sort by criteria such as Proton version or compatibility rating. I know this is a lot of effort and not to be taken lightly, but I feel it fits right in with PCGamingWiki's objective of providing fixes and workarounds for every single PC game.
