Went to my local WalMart's.

 

Picked-up for the PC:

Pillars of Eternity 2: Deadfire for $10

and ReCore: Definitive Edition for $10.

 

Both come w/ Steam keys.

Nice find!  Can't seem to find the POE 2 SKU online, a chance yoiu might know it?  Wanna check to see if it's available near me. Thanks!

Why would an online only game, where your copy is validated by servers everytime you login, need to use any other type of DRM?

B/c Denuvo announced last year that they were also going into the anti-cheating space.

 

Has it been implemented right into Denuvo anti-tamper?

Or is it a separate product entirely?

Has anyone seen a decent deal on Sekiro recently?  The best I can find without GCU is 8% off on Green Man, and that's not too enticing.

Because publishers seem to be slathering Denuvo on everything these days.

I need super special confirmation Derpvision 2 doesn't use Derpnuvo.

It doesn't use it, also for the anti cheat they use Easy Anti-Cheat.

Just a heads up that Steam keys for ETHEREAL are now avaliable for anyone who purchased the September 2018 Humble Monthly. Played it back then and really enjoyed my time with it. Minimalistic puzzle game with some excellent sound design.

Who else is still waiting on a The Division 2 key/link/whatever from AMD that they may or may not receive now?

Most if the Bros haven't gotten theirs and there's a lot of people on Reddit reporting the same.

Since the clan search functions are currently messed up in the Division I decided to start a clan.

To join fine me on your friend list, in game, and select the option to join my clan. (Its currently open, as I have 3 people total and we need 4 to start collecting XP and stuff. I honestly should have started it days ago.)

My Uplay username is: INMATEofARKHAM

Gotta know the clan name. Only joining if the clan name is good.

While I wait for AMD to cease Fuck ing about, my impressions of Love Death + Robots on Netflix

Quite good. 18 total episodes, somewhere between 10 and 20 minutes in length, each a self contained story with it's own art style. Lots of recognizable faces and voices. Some of the CG is quite impressive and most of the stories were very well done. It feels like these were created almost specifically for adults raised on games or at least immersed in the gaming culture, but maybe that's just me. More penises than I would've expected, but I digress. You could do MUCH worse when it comes to streaming content.

Maybe I should have made this explicit, though I thought the penis comment would make it obvious, but these are graphic in all aspects, so don't watch them with your kids.

EDIT:
One I just watched had Topher Grace, so I'm obligated to dock points.

DC Defenders... Looking at some of the names I've seen it's got to be atleast in the upper middle half. lol

Being spoiled by old Steam sales, I kept waiting for Far Cry 4 to get super cheap and it never did. I can currently get FC: New Dawn from Humble for $17. Knowing how Ubi prices things nowadays, I feel like it will be a long time before it gets much cheaper than that. Should I grab this if I haven't really played an FC game since 3 (I tried Blood Dragon and didn't like it at all) or should I try to get a good price on 4 or 5? Or should I just not really worry about this series since other games do similar things better?

FC: New Dawn is great.  Mechanics-wise, it's a better/funner game than FC5.  I would jump on it if you want something you can finish relatively quickly (20 hours) and enjoy.  I wouldn't say other games do the FC formula better.  FC5 is a huge open-world with a ton to do and it's impressive, but it does get a bit repetitive at times.  New Dawn condenses things and improves on all the mechanics.  My favorite game I've played so far this year.

I agree with Fox, for the most part, but still wish I'd waited until the $20 or under price. Think I was expecting them to add the skins, models and such into the Arcade mode, but I doubt that'll materialize. However, I've played and found more enjoyment with New Dawn than I have with Exodus, which was completely unexpected considering how much I love Metro. Exodus is good looking, but it's just dragging on and on. The mini open areas feel like a labor to search, especially when you hit an event that prevents you from going back to a place that wasn't fully explored. Gotten stuck numerous times trying to go just slightly off path and forced to reload a ways back in order to continue.

i mean, i'm not sure what you consider "super cheap" but im pretty sure fc4 has been 7.50 before. i haven't played fc new dawn but fc4 was fine, might as well grab that the next time it's 7.50 and just wait for new dawn to get a bit cheaper

Indeed, Far Cry 4 has hit 75 percent off before, on Steam, but it took a long time to do so. I'm waiting on a good sale for Watch_Dogs 2. The discounts are bigger than average, but the MSRP is quite exaggerated, for a title over 2 years old. I wish it ends up a Humble Monthly headliner, like The Division did a couple of months ago.

WD2 is like $10-15 on uplay right now, Humble has a sale too.

I liked FC4 (from what I played of it), though it was basically more FC3 but in India. If that sounds good, can't go wrong w/ it.

 

And playing FC4 not too long after FC3+BD, wasn't the best of ideas. So, FC4 got dropped...for now. I'm sure I'll get back to it, probably way after FC5+ND.

 

I'm really digging FC5 (I'm some 12-13 hours in) though; and FC: ND is sitting in my backlog since I won that in a contest.

lol, his reason for it being "procompetitive" (his made-up word, not mine) to have exclusives is because it forces customers to look at his store when the game isn't available anywhere else.  What a joke.  He also says that exclusives are basically the only reason anyone is visiting Epic or using the store.  That... should probably tell him something besides "we need more exclusives".

Being the only way to get something worked great for the ISPs.

 

Seems it can work well for Epic.

Honestly I could see Discord making it big rather than Epic, or having a higher chance of it anyway if they got bigger exclusives and more of them. At least I use Discord every day and it's become the #1 app for voice chat, and there's a huge community. I sure as hell wouldn't want to buy anything on Discord, but I'm already using Discord.. unlike the Epic launcher which I don't use until I add whatever new free games they come out with.
