    Maybe it was something like that, i had no troubles launching offline mode today, or maybe i had brain fart yesterday :P

    I'm actually really pleased with Steam tbh, it was first time for me to have any plroblems in few years.

    I was in permanent offline mode for 6 months or so in 2012 when I volunteered overseas. People acted like I was lying but I wasn't, it worked fine for that long.

    Sorry, it's not. My guess (as I'm not working for Kitfox who are publishing) would be a temporary date filled in just because you had to put something in the release date field.

    Why the fuck have AMD GPU's become so unpopular in the last 5 years?

    Looks like Steam nuked all my personal Categories overnight. Now all my games are listed under "GAMES" and "VR". It's the same on both my computers.

    WTF Gabe, this is triggering my autisms something fierce.

    Hopefully it's only a temporary issue.
    :despair:

    edit: It's still fucked up:

    I remember when I bought my GPU some 3 years ago that the RX480 was very close to the GTX1060 performance wise and costed around 100 euros less.

    nVidia have better drivers and enhancements for older games, in my experience, which is the main reason I use them. Seems like every other game I read about has some issue with AMD.

    Crypto mining happened. Miners are buying AMD GPU's like cakes because they have better price to performance ratio.

    In the last few years there was no Radeon card on the market which was reasonably priced, thanks to mining. That's why the GTX 1050 Ti was one of the most popular cards.

    OTOH it's pretty easy to pick up a decent card used by a miner for cheap. Make sure the warranty is covered for at least a few years.

    That's a pretty big caveat to your argument.

    It's their new tactic to combat the Epic Store, take some features away and then be like "keep buying on Epic's store and we'll take more." If Borderlands 3 is a hit on Epic Store then offline mode sleeps with the fishes.

    Yesterday Valve nuked the review bombing of Borderlands 2. This was the first time they did this after they announced their new policy about review bombings. Thanks to that the review score is untouched on the store, although you can still see the reviews at the bottom of the page.

    Technically you can change your personal settings so the reviews don't get censored, it just defaults to censoring it.
