PC MASTAH RAYCE: LEG DAY EDITION Anonymous 08/31/2021 (Tue) 17:29:25 Id: 1bcd5c No. 547
IF IT INVOLVES THE PERSONAL COMPUTER AND ITS HAREM, POST IT HERE! PC NEWS AS OF AUGUST 31st, 2021: Japan has real-life loot boxes full of CPUs >In a country famous for putting just about anything in vending machines, Japan may have topped it all with a vending machine that dispenses CPUs. The twist? You don’t know what CPU you’re going to get. >Although we wouldn’t put it past someone in Japan to actually sell CPUs like this one day, the machine here is actually more akin to a loot box you’d find in a videogame. After dropping in 1,000 Yen (or about $9), according to Mujtaba, the machine drops a Ryzen box with random processors inside—it could be Intel, it could be AMD, it could be several chips. The setup brings a whole new meaning to the phrase “silicon lottery.” https://archive.is/HtPp0 Stranger Things 3 is being removed from Steam and GOG, but may soon appear on Netflix's gaming app >Stranger Things 3: The Game is being delisted from Steam, GOG, and the Epic Games Store on August 31. Anyone who owns the game on either storefront prior to its removal will continue to have full access to it, but it will no longer be available for purchase. >A reason for the delisting wasn't provided, but my guess is that Netflix is reclaiming control over its properties in order to further its own gaming ambitions. In May, the company announced a new push into gaming, which it solidified in July by hiring former Oculus content VP Mike Verdu as vice president of game development. And it's probably not a coincidence that Netflix is now testing Stranger Things 3, and Stranger Things: 1984, through its mobile app in Poland. <"Let’s talk Netflix and gaming. Today members in Poland can try Netflix mobile gaming on Android with two games, Stranger Things: 1984 and Stranger Things 3. It’s very, very early days and we’ve got a lot of work to do in the months ahead, but this is the first step." t. Netflix Geeked Twitter https://archive.is/CneG4 MIR4 is blowing up on Steam despite mostly negative reviews, probably because of cryptocurrency >MIR4 launched on Steam and mobile devices last week, and its peak concurrent player count has been increasing dramatically every day since. It’s on pace to crack into Steam’s top 50 soon, and this success is coming despite the ‘mostly negative’ reviews posted for the game on Valve’s platform. I’m pretty sure cryptocurrency is the reason why. >It’s a game clearly made for casual play on mobile (the interface is obviously designed for a touch screen, with recommendations to ‘tap’ rather than ‘click’ various buttons), but there are plenty of idle games on Steam that have quietly gotten a positive response. The apparent reasons for MIR4’s early success are a lot weirder. >Developer WeMade has branched out into cryptocurrency. The company runs a wallet service called WeMix, and while none of this is mentioned on MIR4’s Steam page, press releases and the game’s official site clearly spell out that you can get a blockchain-backed currency called DRACO by playing. You can only get DRACO if you tie the game to a Facebook, Google, or Apple account, reach level 40, and collect enough of the in-game Darksteel currency (by literally mining it) to craft the cryptocurrency. >WeMade’s official estimates put the DRACO exchange rate at just under $3 USD, which ain’t Bitcoin, but it certainly ain’t nothing. The company plans to continually adjust the rate at which players can turn Darksteel into DRACO so as to preserve the currency’s value. https://archive.is/EJwjI
>>547 >cpu gacha Too bad there isn't a mobo and ram gacha as well, maybe you could build a budget system by swapping parts.
>>549 It's an interesting concept, to be sure.
