PC Steam Origin Uplay DRM-Free

Syntax Error

Posted 16 January 2019 - 05:47 AM

So it's those individual keys that require someone with a 580 to activate?  Seems kind of odd because how would Steam and U-Play check if you had the right hardware?

You make a rewards account with AMD (use a trash email/pass; see below) , log into that and redeem your rewards card.  Pick the two games (if it's a 2/3 card) and, when it's close to release date, it will give you the Steam keys.  Valve/Ubi don't check your hardware, AMD does when you redeem the card.

 

The Steam keys you can keep/redeem/sell and then I guess you could sell the AMD rewards account (you need a new one each time anyway) to someone to link for Division 2 if you weren't keeping it for yourself.  You'd want to get the Steam keys off it first for the obvious reasons.

Nothing in there for me but that looks like a pretty good pick n mix. The dlc area for pre sequel was pretty fun too.

It's been that cheap on console even, so probably not a mistake.

 

Edit: It was actually $1.99.

It's different, but pretty cool. If you're a completionist, there's a few point of no returns, so you double check for collectibles.

I really liked Murdered but never 100% because of the collectible thing.  I knew about the point of no return but I think I thought it would kick in after a certain cut scene, not before or something.  Fun game though.

Murdered: Soul Suspect has been in a Square-Enix Humble Bundle in the $1 tier before actually so it's been even cheaper.  But even at $2.99 it's a steal.

 

I got my copy back in 2014 as part of the AMD Rewards they were doing at the time and I enjoyed it.  It had its flaws, but it was an interesting premise and I dug the story.  It's a shame they never did anything else with the IP.

Oh, that's easy then.  I'm more apt to keep Division 2 and sell RE2 so I can just straight up sell a Steam key.

Yeah, we all got it recently.  I'm going to have like a -$1,000,000 balance if I ever use G2A again.  (Spoiler, I won't, ShadyKeys is much better).

Is it just me, or is Hades listed at $10.99 ($20 MSRP) and Ashen at $21.99 ($40 MSRP) on the Epic Store? Price is normal if I visit the site without logging in, but if I'm logged in via browser or the client they show up at the reduced prices. I see no mention of a sale and these are two of the flagship titles they're using to promote the store, so I'm thinking glitch. This is in the US, FWIW.

 

Other discrepancies:

 

My Time at Portia: $17.99 ($30 MSRP)

Division 2: $43.20 ($60 MSRP)

TWD Season 4: $18.99 ($20 MSRP)

Subnautica: $12.99 ($25 MSRP)

Gorogoa: $7.99 ($15 MSRP)

Hello Neighbor: $15.99 ($30 MSRP)

Shows up as 19.99 for me when logged into the client and via browser not logged in.

Ok, for whatever reason Epic has auto-detected my location as Brazil. Explains why the checkout page has options for Brazilian banking services.

That's what I was about to suggest. Whenever I see weird pricing bugs, it's usually browse loc getting confused.

Call of Duty: Black Ops 4 (PC on Battle.Net) is now on Free Trial for Blackout Mode this weekend.

 

Great, 86GB download approximately...

That's a lot of GB for one mode.

 

BO is my least favorite mode.  DM and Zombies are better.

I'm guessing you own the entire game...?

 

So, at 86GB or so, is BO4 downloading only Blackout?

Or is it also downloading DM and Zombies too, but just not unlocking it?

 

EDIT:

If DM and Zombies is missing, how much is the full game install? Over 100GB?

I used to complain about huge installs because of how long they take (although Steam is pretty slow regardless of connection) but now I complain about needing more storage so I can have half of my backlog installed at once.  FWP.

Its ~80gb installed for the full thing, so yes, its downloading the whole game

My only issue with big installs is bandwidth because of those thieves - Xfinity.  86GB is almost 10% of my monthly allotment.

That was an issue before I got fiber as well.  Cox is the same way, I think all of the big cable companies pull that crap now.  You can get unlimited but it is another $50 per month and they slowly raise their prices constantly.  The fiber I have now is $79.99, the Cox package I had was the same price or very close to it but vastly slower and with a 1TB cap.  They had a bandwidth meter for a while so it was obvious they were going to add a cap and I noticed that I very rarely went over it and when I did, it was usually a perfect storm of a lot of general usage - streaming, phones via wifi, etc., on top of installing some new big games.  Some PS4 games are huge too.

 

When they sent me an email saying they were adding a cap and I had a one month grace period to get used to it before it would be enforced, I downloaded everything I could possibly think of just to spite them.  I forget now but I think I was just under 4TB.

I still haven't found a usage meter (monthly or otherwise) on Google but I wouldn't be shocked to find out I use over a TB a month or more. Both wife snd I use wifi in the house for our phones... She never watches regular TV. Just netflix or VUDU for the most part. I watch a fair amount of regular TV but most of the time I'm streaming hulu when asleep... I watch a fair amount of games via NHL.TV too. Some Saturdays I'm streaming games for 12 hours straight.
