Here at Netbookist, I take pride in helping my readers. So here’s something from the get-go: Faster than Light will not display properly on netbooks that do not support at least a 1280×720 resolution.
Future patches might change it, but as of now, you’re stuck with either playing it on an external display or a different [...]
Uplink is a very unique game. Even up until today, there hasn’t been a game this similar to Uplink, and it has been over ten years…
