Updates from last night:

 

Versus Squad:  Jimbo and Parallacks joined Syntax and I for round 2 of Versus Squad.  We lasted like 1.5 hours and I can genuinely say it felt better than the first time we played it.  Not sure if it's been tweaked since then or we just knew what we were doing more.  Definitely not a game I can play for hours on end, but good in 1-2 hour spurts.

 

PUBG:  We played some PUBG afterwards and had some good rounds with some top ten finishes.  I got a sweet AWM from a supply drop, but never got to shoot it.  Thus is PUBG.  Then I joined Encendido and Goose for several rounds of drop into the action PUBG.  Got a personal best 3 kills in one round (and possibly two team kills).  We rushed a house with two guys in it.  All I had was a shotgun.  I snuck up on one guy and downed and killed him while his teammate downed Encendido and Goose.  I was getting ready to rush upstairs and saw something coming towards me so in my panicked state I shot and killed Goose who was crawling towards me to be revived or something.  Then I killed the other guy.  I also vulture sniped a kill when two other squads were shooting it out in the distance.  

 

Sound Blaster Omni:  Got one of these based on Inmate's recommendation.  I like it a lot as a headphone amp.  It definitely makes my cans sound way better.  I used the included mic last night and the sound was fine, but my main gripe is the lack of a mute button for the mic.  Real big omission.  You can press down on the volume knob to mute the sound, but the mic is live all the time.  Had to use the hotkey feature in Discord to mute, which is fine, but you have to hold down the key to keep the mic muted that way.  Could it have killed them to include a mute button?  Even the cheapest headsets have those. 

 

V-Moda Boompro:  The reason I even had to use the Omni's built-in mic was because of the colossal disappointment this thing was.  Was super-excited to be able to convert my favorite headphones into a headset and this thing has great reviews on Amazon, but the bros kept telling me they heard static all the time when using this thing.  So I switched to the Omni and then looked it up and the Boompro has known issues with DACs/Amps and some mobos when it comes to grounding.  Seems it tries to ground both the mic and headphones at the same time and causes static which people haven't been able to fix other than connecting the mic into one device (say the mobo) and the headphones into another (say the DAC or soundcard) or buying some stupid grounding loop cord or USB thing.  Probably sending this thing back to Amazon since I much prefer the sound of the Omni over the ability to use this.  I'll see if I can connect the mic directly into the back of my mobo and still use the Omni for my headphones.

Stupid Steam question... Is there anyway to tell Steam that I'm not interested in buying movies from them?

Short answer - no.

 

Long answer - I only ever browse the Steam store in browser because Steam itself is slow and buggy and awful and I use Enhanced Steam which allows me to show only games/DLC in search results or when I go to look at all games on sale, etc.  It's the best I've been able to figure out since I have no interest in Steam movies myself.

Yeah, Versus Squad definitely felt a lot smoother in game play than last time.  The defense wave mode was better than last time and it actually felt like we could accomplish something between waves whereas last game it felt like we couldn't do anything.  I'm still not convinced that Nation Red isn't the superior game but I feel better about Versus Squad.

 

I'm gonna have to get myself one of those Soundblaster Omnis.  Been toying with the idea but two good bro reviews helps push the needle.

WHAT?!?!  Mind blown.  Steam actually way more helpful than I gave it credit for.

I had one of those for a couple of months, had it connected to my astro mixamp and didn't have issues other than the ones I normally have with my mixamp, which is similar to what you had. Occasionally I think people would hear an echo or my game sound but it was very rare. Got completely rid of the issue by having the mic and headphones separated. Happened with any kind of mic that I had hooked up to my mixamp so my guess is the vmoda wasn't the issue, but your amp was if it happens like that with any kind of mic/headphone combo cable. An alternate solution would be to get a modmic. That's what I'm using now, and it'll attach to any headphones.

D2D has Skyrim V - Special Edition for $10.  I'm pretty sure that's the lowest it has been by far unless there was some deal about owning the older version before they put this one out.

Pretty tempting...


Just because I don't care doesn't mean I don't understand.

I doubt the world needs/wants another MOBA... And I don't think I want to give it a try because I don't want to be disappointed when it dies.

Thanks for the link though.

#1 - It's free.

#2 - It can be bronighted before the inevitable move over to Poopy Underpants blah-blah game.

#3 - Don't discourage folks from posting a Steam related deal in the PUBG-Pizza-Shoes discussion thread.

PUBG invitational has been pretty good so far, (except the camera work is crap) think they just finished up the solo play.

That works too.

And yet... it only took a few hours for it to have four times more players than Battleborn.

b/c it went Free to Play.  

 

Apple to Orange here my friend

 

p.s. I am not a fan of both games.  They both suck in their own ways.  There are games that did what these 2 did but BETTER.

If it went free 2 play I would had assume it would have more players.

The same way Guild Wars 2 was dying before it went free 2 play

"First, free accounts start with fewer character slots and bag slots than the paid version of the game. But they still get the full complement of slots as soon as they buy Guild Wars 2: Heart of Thorns."

"Third, free accounts have some restrictions to prevent them from skipping ahead to places where they could be used to disrupt the game. They must play to level 10 before leaving the starter zones, to level 30 before using LFG, and to level 60 before using World vs. World. They can play PvP immediately but must get to rank 20 before using custom and unranked arenas."

Tl;DR

The core game is free, the expansion packs still cost money.

D2D has Skyrim V - Special Edition for $10.  I'm pretty sure that's the lowest it has been by far unless there was some deal about owning the older version before they put this one out.

 

https://www.direct2d...edition/5011631

 

Pretty tempting...

A few other things worth pointing out.

 

Direct2Drive:

All Steam keys at 75% off:

 

The Evil Within: Season Pass (historical low from ITAD) = $2.50 

RAGE (base-game) = $2.50

RAGE: The Scorchers DLC (1 penny above historical low from ITAD) = $1.25
