3/26/23 - Counter-Strike 2, Diablo Bricking GPUs, Spider-Man 2 Release Date, Res 4 ❤️

We had some troubling news as well as new games revealed this week.

PSA: Diablo IV is Bricking Gigabyte 30-Series GPUs

Several reports after last weekend's closed beta in the Blizzard forums revealed issues that seem consistent amongst Gigabyte's 30-series GPUs. Though one report did mention an EVGA card that also ran into issues when playing Diablo IV. The most common Gigabyte card that was bricked was the Gigabyte 3080 Ti. If you have a Gigabyte 30-series card, it might be best to wait until further notice, which is unfortunate as the open beta is a lot of fun.

Counter-Strike 2

Counter-Strike 2 Promotional Logo

Counter-Strike returns this summer with a fully modernized enhancement of the beloved first-person shooter from 2000. Counter-Strike 2 brings new features like dynamic and responsive smoke clouds– such as smoke billowing and conforming to an enclosed area or having bullets pierce and chip away parts of smoke clouds.

Smoke grows into a small, enclosed area and doesn't clip into walls, and is bound to contort to the wall, ceiling, and floor's structure.

Tick rates are being retooled to be more precise than the current rate with "sub-tick" counts allowing for more information in a small amount of time to make it to the server in time.

Maps are presented in three different categories.


"Touchstone" Maps

Touchstones are maps returning as you love or hate them already, with no major changes outside of lighting and character read, but is a good way for veterans to see if the Source 2 engine has changed something to the way Counter-Strike is played.


"Upgrade" Maps

Upgrades are maps with significantly enhanced visuals with the same geometry. Upgrades will have enhanced lighting, physically-based rendering materials, and reflections from the Source 2 engine.


"Overhaul" Maps

Overhauls, as the name implies, completely revisualize Counter-Strike and modernize maps that will rival your other popular FPS titles. These are the oldest maps brought back with lots of artistic integrity.

In addition to existing maps, new tools will be coming for map makers to really dive into their creative itches.

Watch Valve's breakdown of the enhancements coming to Counter-Strike 2.  It's probably the last Counter-Strike we'll ever see.

Thinking of getting an AYANEO?

We love the Steam Deck over here, but that doesn't mean we don't have our issues with it. Ayaneo provides a great alternative, such as an answer to USB4, multiple USB ports, and supports average-sized NVMe SSDs, but for a hefty cost.

We have two articles depending on your answer. Read up on an opinion piece on the recently released AYANEO 2 and AYANEO Geek. Including some concerns regarding the rapid release schedule that the company has been on.

AYANEO 2 and Geek - Who are these for?
Ayaneo has released two handheld gaming PCs that outpace the Steam Deck, except in cost.

But if you do end up wanting an AYANEO, maybe consider taking our advice: upgrade the lowset-end AYANEO while SSD prices are falling, rather than paying extra for more storage.
