Hey guys, just a heads-up on this. I didn't check the GOG thread, but I didn't see it mentioned here. Apparently GOG is giving away its video of the live full-orchestra rendition of the WItcher 3 soundtrack. I almost bought this thing a few times at $10, and I happened to see this when I was, ironically, checking GOG for other game soundtrack information. If you've played the game, you know how good the music is, so grab it while it's free (all weekend).

Very simple tables they gave as a bonus for owning the originals, now you can get all 27 for $1

Huh. How does the gameplay and physics compare to FX2 or FX3?

I know you guys didn't ask for this one, but $5.99 is the deepest I've ever seen for BioShock Infinite

ITAD (IsThereAnyDeal) says BS:I has been $5.09 before on GreenManGaming:

https://isthereanyde...kinfinite/info/

 

It's been cheaper elsewhere.

 

EDIT:

Regardless, BS:I is a masterpiece and is worth every penny, IMHO. Great game, story, characters, and twists at the very end (of the base-game).

 

Gamers also should want the DLC's from The Season Pass, especially if they are fans of the OG Bioshock 1 (for its setting) and Thief series (Burial At Sea Episode 2 feels more like Bioshock meets Thief with its gameplay/stealth style).

Y U NO $1 BIOSHOCK INFANITE FROM GOLDEN JOYSTIKS?!?!

 

EDIT:
That also came with $1 in GMG credit so it was almost like it was free.

Good point, DD83.

These ones are very old-fashioned but they also have remake tables that are more like FX2/3. On the default physics the ball is kind of light and floaty, you can adjust it but it puts you in a separate leaderboard.

Hi, would you please add Bioshock Infinite: Columbia's Finest into relative subs?

 

Got this DLC key some time ago but steam store never shows owned.

Eurogamer - Overwatch on all platforms will force a full-blown redownload/reinstall w/ its next patch/update:

https://www.eurogame...-full-reinstall

 

Overwatch (PC/consoles) is getting a major overhaul on the back-end for client revamping & load time fixing.

Substantial changes & update incoming, so they aren't patching over the old files.

Expect a 30GB re-download at the very least.

I feel like a bit of a sucker because Thronebreaker turned up on Steam today. On the one hand, I've only played it for less than an hour after buying it on GOG, but like most people here (with some wacky exceptions), I prefer having my catalog on Steam. I understood from CD Projekt RED's marketing that the game was going to be a GOG-exclusive on PC. In retrospect, that would probably be a dumb idea, because a lot of people flat-out won't buy a game that's not on Steam. Hm. First-world problems, I guess.

So what's in the BO3 Digital Deluxe?

 

I'm guessing BO3 Base & Season Pass?

Anything else in there?

Basically just that..

 

"The Call of Duty: Black Ops III Digital Deluxe Edition includes the full base game, Season Pass, 3 Personalization Packs & The Giant Bonus Map. Get the fan favorite Cyborg & Weaponized 115 packs along with a new Black Ops 3 pack. Each pack comes with a weapon camo, reticles, and calling card. Re-live the chaos of Treyarch's classic "Der Riese" Zombies map with The Giant Bonus Map, picking up the Zombies story with Dempsey, Nikolai, Richtofen, and Takeo where Origins left off. "

That seems extremely cheap considering how Activision doesn't seem to discount the CoD DLC very often (or not by a lot when they do.)

It's missing Zombie Chronicles, one of the main reasons I'd want BO3.. so it'll be a pass for me. If it was the Zombies Chronicles Deluxe Edition I'd be all over it.

Want to pay $30 for the Call of Duty game from three years ago?

I already have the BO3 Base-Game.

Anything worthwhile SP or MP content in the Season Pass and/or any other DLC's?

 

Is the MP still popular for BO3 these days?

still 2k playing, and thats fairly early too, id wager ~4-5k at peak. However this is cod PC, barely anyone plays the SP maps. I own the SP for blops3 and it was always tough to find a match with those maps. So at this point I wouldnt say it was worth it unless you want it for the zombies (which as pointed out you ony get the new zombie maps, not the 8 remastered ones from chronicles)

My G600 (Wired) arrived today. Ordered this as my extra/spare G600 the other day, since I do love this mouse. Amazon price-matched and I had Amazon GC - so, why the heck not? Nice to have another one of those around.

Eurogamer - Microsoft has bought Obsidian...and also InXile Entertainment.

Studios that haven't been good in a while bought by crappy mega-giant corporate publisher.

Supposedly, Pillars 2 flopped and only sold 110K copies worldwide:

Regarding inXile, I thought Wastelands 2 turned out okay once after several patches and basically what ended up being the Director's cut.  Their iteration of Torment was mixed and their current release, Bard's Tale 4 has mixed reviews with comments that lead me to believe that the game did not have enough polish.  If anyone watch the videos for the kickstarters, Brian Fargo mocked the current state of the industry.  Thus, I find it a little humorous that they sold out.  I actually am hoping for a good Wastelands 3.

Obsidian, at least for me, puts out better polished games than InXile. 

My guess is Microsoft is acquiring studios, in part, to combat the library of exclusives that Sony has.  From my perspective, Sony won the console round with PS2, lost with PS3 due to Microsoft having better hardware and Microsoft having better relations with publishers i.e. exclusives, but Sony won again with PS4 despite Microsoft having the more capable/stronger spec hardware XBOX X vs Pro.

Welp.  I did my part and bought 3. 

 

But yeah that's a very telling statistic.  There is only so much room in the world for new release CRPGs.  People play like one, and then take a break.  Plus you've got Divinity 2 stealing the limelight with better review scores as the definitive game that everyone is going to buy first.

It did not help that Pillars had a season pass and that the DLCs were not well received, especially compared to White March.  Larian did a great job and made Divinity 2 better than the prior game and did not dabble with a season pass.  Having said that, both games should be played if you are a fan of the genre.

This is the promo I got Hand of Fate 2 for a $10 (only about a week after its launch) food bag. Not sure what they'll have this year but it launches in a week. The HOF2 keys ran out pretty fast so keep an eye out.

I played through Wasteland 2 on release. Sure, patches always help, but it was fine from the start, a perfectly serviceable sequel to the original. Wasteland 3 was kickstarted a while ago, so I'd certainly be surprised if it didn't come to pass; they've been working diligently on it for a few years. As for Microsoft, they've come out and said that they're looking for more sources of exclusives, and this is clearly part of that effort. Adding some unique RPGs to their stable would be a refreshing change of pace from the same old shooters. Certainly it's a genre where they've fallen behind Sony. I don't think Microsoft will ever catch up in that regard, but they could obviously do better than they have been--I mean, what did they have for the last few years, Gears of War and Halo?

It did not help that Pillars had a season pass and that the DLCs were not well received, especially compared to White March.  Larian did a great job and made Divinity 2 better than the prior game and did not dabble with a season pass.  Having said that, both games should be played if you are a fan of the genre.

Hm. I'm not sure what you mean by that. Pillars 1 also had a season pass. I've only played a little of 2 so far, but it seems like a substantial improvement over the first game.

Regarding my comment with Pillars and Season Pass; compared to buy Divinity 2 ($45) which does not have a season pass is more appealing to people weighing buying one or the other from a price point of view (Pillars 2 w/Season Pass=$75).  I agree that both studios made their sequels with respected improvements.  However, there are plenty of reviews that are not happy with Pillars 2 DLC, which may change once Forgotten Sanctum DLC is released.  Again, both are improvements over the previous releases and could and should be enjoyed.  I have to agree with Nothing371 that a lot of players generally take a break after an epic CRPG which also may factor in the sales.
