Just came out of Fry's got Sherlock Holmes Crimes and Punishment Steam key for $1 a day NBA2K2015 Steam key for $5.

Both are retail. If you have a Fry's near you you can check the website to see if they have stock and then do a store pickup. My store still had plenty of copies.

Edit: Oh and that Fish Shop game was in a Poopees Build a Greenlight bundle but it was one I didn't buy. Some of you guys who moraned it might get a key. Eventually. But you'll probably have to scream at the dev and Poopees because neither seems in a huge hurry to give those keys.

Awesome finds. Too bad there ain't any Fry's nearby here. :(

That is a great score!  Have that game on the wishlist, but lowest has been around $9.  Just like MysterD, no Fry's around.  Not to be too serious, but Motoki could easily buy both to resell.

Overwatch will save us.  Just kidding.  I'm in the Overwatch beta... it's just a more colorful/console version of TF2.  Certainly nothing I'd pay a fixed cost for up front.

Peanut butter and jelly.

 

Though I've never played TF2.

Motoki is my official gaming buddy.

Motoki steered me towards Dragon's Dogma so that's cool.  And some of those casual games are fun.  Except he also likes Remember Me which is an ass full of garbage fire so not everyone can be perfect.  I'd buy the lesbian farmer game and probably enjoy it except that I'm going to make an attempt to knock some of the (hopefully) better games out of my backlog for a little bit.

Fair enough. If I hate a game, which is rare - it must be absolute garbage.

 

On the other hand - when it comes to movies, I'm way-way more picky + brutal about those than games.

Watched that movie Black Mass last night -  really liked it.

Dammit, Motoki + Foxhack!

 

Motoki has a Fry's nearby, I don't - and caught some awesome clearance game deals.

Foxhack seems to always have the good WalMart's with clearance game deals - i.e. Divinity OS for cheap.

 

Oh, well.... [shrug]

Nice!

I paid $10 for D3 PC, back in the Toys R Us clearance a few years back.

Later spent $20 for RoS PC at Best Buy, when I caved on it and that were the first to drop it that low.

 

It took RoS to make D3 great.

Agreed, I got RoS collectors edition at best buy on mark down for $20 year back.

 

Without RoS D3 is total trash,

The Diablo 3 release on PC was one of the biggest disappointments in gaming history.

Thank God that I only dropped $10 on it during that TRU blowout. It certainly was worth that, for sure. Probably helped that I bought it that cheap, as well - as if I paid more, I probably would've been even more disappointed than I was.

 

And certainly, Loot 2.0 + RoS took D3 to greatness....FINALLY. Thank God for RoS.

 

About disappointing new releases - DA2 (PC) + FF8 (PSX), both of which that I still liked despite their tons of shortcomings + paid more for than D3 base-game, were hyped as hell + certainly didn't deliver everything that I had hoped.

 

DA2 was an easier pill for me to swallow than FF8, as I bought DA2 a bit later and already knew many of the complaints of it; FF8 on the other hand was a "WTH?" on numerous occasions for me (story-wise, character-wise, and over-reliance on long-winded Summons).

I agree. Marksman rifles are the best.  I prefer to use the high damage/low ROF archtypes because they hit like a truck.  They're great for picking off elites from safe range.  They're also almost mandatory  in order to pick off sniping mobs which hit you the hardest.  The one downside is that marksman rifles seem run out of ammo quickly.

 

I use a Marksman and LMG primary setup, and Assault Rifle + LMG.   You have to use some sort of close range weapon like LMG, SMG, or Shotty to deal with charging foes and to be able defend yourself.  SMGs with small sized clips are useless.

 

Also, stop selling your weapons to the vendors.  Break them down for crafting parts instead.  You'll want a supply of those when you hit 30.  Feel free to waste green parts on the occasional temporary weapon upgrade but don't waste your other mats until you're capped at 30. 

Agreed, the SMGs are pretty weak with their small clip size. I'm currently using one at the moment since it's my highest DPS weapon. Ugh.

 

No worries, I have a good stockpile already from breaking down blue items and from mat collecting locations. I upgraded all of my green mats into blues as well which is a nice feature.

 

That's definitely good advice to help prepare for when you're level capped.

 

lol, not to sound like an asshole, but u never accept invites, and when i joined u, u just leave. LOL u clearly want to play alone.

Hmm. Are you sure you don't have me confused with someone else? I ran several story missions early on with some non-CAG friends, but since then I don't recall receiving any in-game invites or having people join me. I especially don't recall leaving anyone's game session.

 

I tend to be more of a completionist once I settle into a game and lately I've been manually setting my privacy to private while looking for collectibles, listening/looking at intel stuff, looking at weapon/gear stats, exploring the story missions, and being idle in-game a bit here and there. I figure that might be boring to most people's gaming style, especially going idle in stretches.

 

Once I hit up the Dark Zone, DLC, and other end-game things I'm all for grouping up. The other stuff outside of the DZ doesn't tend to be too difficult even on the hardest setting (at least to me). /shrug

You should get The Division.

No, he should get Stardew Valley and help turn the thread into the PC Game Farmers' Thread. 

 

When I go to the local grocery store, they always have quail eggs and I always think about getting them and then realize that I'd have no idea what to do with quail eggs except maybe make a tiny omelet. This happens every time.

Sushi? Think, at least around here, sushi places always have quail egg (as well as smelt, and roe).

They adapted with the times to maximize profit.  Good for them as they're now one of only a few mega developers left.  Best way to make tons of money is take existing popular genres and lower the skill ceiling more casual players can be competitive.  I do enjoy Hearthstone although the massive droughts between content is fairly annoying.  They recently announced the new one won't be going live until late April/May.

oyster shooters often have raw quail eggs.

 

or my favorite, bacon wrapped quail eggs on a skewer.

tonights BRo night division update: Karma's a bitch






Due to last night's rogue adventures in the dz with laney last night, it came back to bite me in the ass tonight in dz. HEadpiece n I decided to do a run with a few missions and headed to the darkzone for some loot. everything started fine. we were able to extract on our first try no problem.






but during the second extraction, i tried to hijack some1 else's extraction( some1 alrady called for an extraction, so i wanted to jump in without having to wait), and i ended up eating bullets, because i got too relax, and did not realize the 4 other ppl there were in a group. as soon as i went to press F to extract, i had bullet holes put through me. lay there bleeding out, because being taken down, hearing someone yell over the mic: " this is our extraction".
As me n headpiece continue our adventures through to the sports store landmark place/ dz 02 or 03 area. we were met by constant players turning rogue, and gettng ganked hard by groups of 4 players. this lasted about 1 hr, and me being stubborn try to taking revenge n ended up dying several times. Finally a manhunt was called on the group that killed us first ( there were atleast 2 -3 different rogue groups that ganked me n headpiece). Sadly we missed the manhunt, because of the high lvl enemy spawn trapping us in the safehouse area, by the time we cleared the creeps. manhunt was over






over the next few hrs, me n headpiece extracted easily, until we ran into two solo players who turn rogue, and attacked because we were too nice. one was a female char, who were crouching in cover next to us, we just stood there not being aware, and she took us out. when we respawned, we got our revenge by killing her ,after chasing her down. Another player turn rogue on us, and killed us while me n headpiece was in a busy firefight with some name yellow bosses. after those two incidents, we extracted a few more times, and called it a night because our stash was fulll

I've played with all weapon types so far but I seem to gravitate towards equipping an AR as my primary, a marksman rifle as my secondary, and a shotgun to polish off those that get too close. A good marksman rifle I find to be very useful in the Division as you can pick off (headshot) lower health enemies and also give good chunk damage to any purple/yellow shielded enemies.

I suppose I haven't been paying attention to vendor inventory as much because I sell off anything that I don't currently need. Is there a vendor that sells weapon skins? The only one I have is the skin from that one Uplay 30-point unlock you can do.

I still haven't seen a sawed off shotgun drop so the drop rate must be fairly low.

As I've progressed I like to clear out sections of the city one by one and complete all side missions, find the collectibles, and complete each story mission on hard. However, there are two stupid ECHO recordings that won't disappear from my map so I was curious if anyone else had the same issue. There is one in Chelsea that appears stuck inside of a building and I spent far too long looking for an entrance but I think it must be a glitch. The other is in Tenderloin and of a recording of a guy with an asthma inhaler that gets torched by a cleaner. Your ECHO progress shows you've collected it but it stays on the map, so it must be an error and hopefully it will be fixed later.

The ECHO in Chelsea I do believe is not in error. I think it's for a mission that only unlocks after clearing all the current missions. I sort of Googled on it after I too walked the area many times... I didn't see the exact conditions just a name and I backed out.

Outside of an AR, which I think most players should always carry, and the MR, which I think is second best selection for most people, I've only used a LMG. I'm currently using one with a 100 round, actually 154 after mods, and it's intresting... I think in a group it could be rather useful.

I've not had any luck running missions on hard... Not that I've tried a whole lot. My gear always is in flux enough that I think I'll do them all on hard after reaching max level and doing a bit of grinding...

Clothing/Weapon Skin vendor is located in Security wing. It comes as part of an unlock... I do not remember which one. I think it's Supply Chain? There's also a high end weapons vendor in the security wing. (Not to be confused with the one for hitting lvl 30.)
