FO76 patch released where Bethesda finally fixed the FPS and Physics Issue for allowing high framerates & physics working properly:

nice, only took them what, 10 years? to not tie their engine to framerate like everyone else has done since they left dos

$340 for a Vega 64.  The pinnacle in gaming performance with no fear of spectre bugs or stupid, useless ray tracing.

Tremor Games is shutting down.

 

Guess I need to try and spend my coins while I can.

Wouldn't you have to put some kind of cooler on this?

It has a cooler, just not the best - it's blower style.  

 

Also, best budget build CPU deal ever:

Syntax Error

Who could have guessed that giving away crap indie games for watching doll hair styling videos wasn't a sustainable business?

 

In other news, I bought one of those $350 monitors so this thing had better change my life.  They also seem to have ended the sale on them, at least for now.  Might pop back up on Thursday/Friday.  Otherwise, Dell is supposed to have them starting tomorrow for $400 and you can get 10% back from eBates if you do that chicanery.  Not as good as $350 but it's somethin'.

The earlier period this year when Tremor was offline, and the dwindling number of survey sites, including Peanutlabs becoming non-functional, was a strong indicator of what was to come. Only had 300 or so coins left, so put in my final order there just now. Glad I got a couple of 5 dollar Steam wallet codes from them just recently. RIP Tremor Bros.

Tremor officially gave more notice of it's shut down than Telltale did.  Telltale no longer let's me access all my games I purchased on their sites.  Tremor is a more reputable business than Telltale.

Great... Just what I wanted to do today... spend a couple hours buying a ton of random crap games with cards.

Meh.  I did an offer that was still pending for 7k coins, rip those coins I guess.  I didn't do it FOR the coins, I just went looking to see if they had an offer and they did, but I took the time to comb through pages of garbage to pick out a bunch of games that looked vaguely interesting or had cards to wishlist to use said coins on.  So basically I am annoyed at the wasted time more than the coins.  lol

If anybody else is interested in Playstation VR (prob not), NewEgg has the AIM controller bundle with Firewall for $60 on the site, and then head over to eBay and use the mobile coupon and you can get the Creed/Superhot VR bundle from NewEgg on there and save about $37.50 off what it is everywhere else.

It'll be bad whatever day it starts.

 

Also, seems like solid state drives are dipping in price after a few years of dubious pricepoints. Any reason why I shouldn't just get a 500 GB to 1 TB SSD and not even bother with a standard/mechanical drive?

None.  I have a smaller, faster SSD for my OS and a larger, slower one for my games.  I on;y still have HDDs for stuff like pictures and music.

The best deal in the sale (imo) looks like Divinity: Original Sin Collector's Edition.

 

It's 14 dollars, comes with Divinity OS, Divine Divinity, Beyond Divinity, and an extra copy of Divinity OS. 

 

So if anybody wants to split that with me let me know, would effectively make D:OS 7 dollars, or 82.5% off

Looking over my wishlist, Sonic Mania for $6.79 (66% off) is a strong deal. Most everything else I had an urge to play recently is only 20-33% off.

I saw sonic mania 66% off and was somewhat tempted, but it feels like that'll be a bundle headliner soon enough. Of course I thought the same with Divinity OS for like the last 2 years

The 1s have been on sale lately, but 500Gb - 1Tb is a little small for my personal tastes. If I were you, I'd do a hybrid setup: grab a 500Gb for your boot drive and a conventional drive of at least 2-3Tb for data storage.

The thing is I really don't store that much and when I finish a game I will generally uninstall it. Of course, there is the argument that AAA games are getting larger in size so a 1TB might soon not be enough.

 

For reference my current (from a four+ year old build) HD is only 500 GB and I've never come across a situation where I simply couldn't install the handful of games I play concurrently and that's even with trash like WoW taking up space (and I only play that like two months a year... probably not at in the future, though, since I think the new expansion is awful).

 

[For further reference I don't download much in the way of movies, tv shows, music, etc.]

Since they're getting so cheap I'd reccomend a 1tb ssd for your OS and most frequent/ongoing games and then if necessary slower storage for media and less demanding games.  

This guy below $150 is solid:

Yep, the deals on SSD's look good across the board. Four years ago when I built my current system the prices were not really worth the gain, imo.
