Did Microsoft “forget” to include Minecraft in the PC Game Pass? What am I supposed to do to check out RTX worlds, buy the game?! ☹️

Pretty nice of Watch Dogs: Legion to spawn me in a rainy night as I check out RTX visuals for the very first time. I still can’t conceive that live raytracing is something that’s available now.

My GPU wasn’t working right so I got a new power supply instead of first getting a friend to test it on their PC.

It’s too hot right now to play PC games, and I’m hoping to be away for August, so I could have waited for prices to possibly go down a bit more, but… I panicked.

Oops. I knew getting a 4K TV meant I’d soon want to upgrade my GPU, but I thought I’d hold out longer.

Okay, no. I was 100% counting on the shortages, and the shortages let me down. There were a bunch of 3070 Tis all over the French online stores, so…
