Really disappointed with the graphics card sales surrounding Prime Day.  These turds think we are supposed to buy their cards at MSRP from two years ago.  I don't know why the card makers think people are just going to buy out all the 1060s, 1070s, and 1080s at their current prices.  As if they are doing us a favor by actually stocking them now.

The 1070ti has not even been out a year (October 2017) and the MSRP on release was $450.  Amazon had one for $380 on prime day.  What even are who mean?

Best GMG deal today was the Hitman 2 price mistake from before the sale went live. ~$22 for the Standard Edition, ~$49 for Gold.

 

And as great as those Prey and Doom deals are, if I can't buy them using Steam Dollarydoos, I can wait.

Apparently you can now gift the latest World of Warcraft expansion.  I might be looking to launder more Blizz-bucks if anyone wants to pick it up at like $42.  Although if I recall right you need to be on my Battle.net friends list for like a week before I can gift anything.

Yeah, they automatically removed and refunded Frostpunk from my account.   Guess I should have gotten all the pirated games for more credits!!

I somehow missed Frostpunk.

I did grab Observer, Battle Chasers: Nightwar, and Lords of Xulima: Deluxe.

Were there any others?

I found a GalCiv III: Crusade 70% off coupon in my inventory today. That's $6, which looks like an all-time low. I'm not sure why I got this coupon, but you probably have it too. 

 

Is $3 for Mud-Runner a good deal?

The other Amazon game was Mars something-or-another that I can't remember.  Surviving Mars?

Which might be the version you want. The Steam version has been having authentication issues every once in a while. 
Sure, it's only that people can't play for a few hours/a day once every few months, but people just lose their minds.

GreenMan is doing a Summer Sale.

Log in and toss games into the cart to see extra discounts.

Man, I might actually buy that, good deal.

I already have just the base-game for ESO (barely played), but I might buy this for Morrowind expansion & b/c of that Morrowind nostalgia.

 

Could always catch Summerset later.

 

EDIT:

Bought it for Morrowind expansion. $4.27 is certainly cheap enough to catch Morrowind expansion, even w/ owning the ESO TU base-game already.

New Prey is the best System Shock game

Prey 2017 is awesome. I do need to finish that one.

Waiting for Mooncrash to get cheaper, of course.

So Prey is like a stealth game right?  Or is it more like Bioshock?  Basically, I think Dishonored sucks but think Bioshock is awesome.  Are those comparisons relevant?  I dunno, but I am rambling.

Bioshock is a watered down version of System Shock 1 and 2... so you should go play those games.  Bioshock has very little differentiation from most modern/generic FPS games.

I tried to play dishonored and could not get into it, but I suck at and therefore hate stealth games.  I feel like Dishonored lied when they said you could play the game however you want.  You definitely just can't run in there and try to kill everyone.

I did a high chaos run where I did just that. Murdered all who crossed me, except civilians (unless they crossed me).

Edit: And I hate stealth games, but love the Dishonored franchise.

Wait, I thought once you owned the base game, you couldn't purchase a package with it and add it to your account just for the expansion without creating a new account. Meaning to keep a single account, you were locked into buying the expansions on whatever platform you were on (Bethesda.net/Steam).

Prey 2017 is more like System Shock and Bioshock, yes.  There really isn't a focus on stealth like in Dishonored.  You focus more on the weapons/tools you get and the alien abilities you can learn (or choose to not learn since there is actually a reason to play through the game without using them).

 

I had a blast with the game.  I went in with fairly low expectations and it pleasantly surprised me.

Just get the packs of mutant death rats to attack everyone in sight.

 

Happy times!

Prey was my sleeper hit for 2017.  You can play it stealth or play it run 'n gun (once you get some guns) or more likely a combination of the two.  Towards the end there really wasn't anything I couldn't just shotgun/plasma-zap to death or lure into a turret trap so I gave up any pretense of being sneaky.

You have to get far enough in to put your skill points into the murdering, which doesn't take that long
