I'd like to take this opportunity to announce my new Patreon. By supporting me with a small (or large) monthly donation you will help me to continue posting on CAG.

 

Here are the different tiers and rewards I have planned. Each higher tier includes the lower ones.

  • $1/month - I will "like" one of your posts each week.
  • $3/month - I will "like" all of your posts.
  • $5/month - Exclusive access to my super secret Discord group.
  • $10/month - You'll be entered in a monthly drawing for old bundle trash Steam keys.
  • $20/month - Even more exclusive access to weekly streams of me playing through all the Train Simulator DLC.**
  • $50/month - I'll send you pictures of rcsample's mom.

If I reach $500 in total monthly support I'll host a livestream of myself eating a pizza with pineapple toppings.

 

If I hit $1000 per month I'll do a playthrough of Vampire: The Masquerade - Bloodlines with MysterD.

 

 

 

** I am launching a separate Kickstarter to raise funds to purchase Train Simulator and all the DLC.

I may be in the minority, but the Contra game looks fun to me. I'm not sure it  is $39.99 on release fun, but for about $20...I think I can do that. It just looks like stupid co-op action game which is OK in my books.

Yeah the contra game looks good to me too. If they're asking $40+ for it I cant imagine it will do too well though, especially if it isnt very long.

Fortnite maker Epic acquires social video app Houseparty

 

What does a gaming company do after raising $1.25 billion? Acquisitions seem like a pretty good place to start. Epic Games — of Unreal Engine and the ridiculously successful Fortnite phenomenon — has just picked up Houseparty.
 
The social video app announced the news via blog post this morning. The deal seems like a natural fit for Epic. Social has been an integral piece of Fortnite’s success as a multiplayer battle royale title.
 
Founded in 2015, Houseparty is a social network that delivers video chat across a number of different platforms, including iOS, Android and macOS. Like Fortnite, the offering tends to skew younger. Specifically, the app caters toward teen users, providing a more private and safer space than other, broader platforms.

If you are one of the weirdos with Epic installed, Enter the Gungeon is a fantastic game.

How many of you lads are taking the xbox game pass ultimate $1 deal to play the PC game pass? If so how long are you buying it for?

In for the whole 3 years (till 6/2022). Played Forza Horizon 4 a bit last night and am liking it so far. I had 13 months of live codes laying around from the 360 era and bout 15 months more. With the site giving out extra 1 months per code redemption for turning on recurring billing (which I promptly turned off) that got me up to the 3 years for ~$85 oop. 

I'd previously used Game Pass to play Crackdown 3 and that worked well enough. There are already enough games to mentally justify $90 in my head (backlog be damned!) so I expect that by June ' 22 I will have had....

I just ended up getting a month but I had already done a 3 months for $2 deal before then so I'm subbed until August.

 

I was under the mistaken impression it would only be $4.99 on PC so I didn't bother doing the Xbox Live workaround thing beforehand.  Would have done it had I know it would be $9.99.

I'm good through 2020, but I'll probably re-up after that.

Heh, I had a year of gold card left over from the 360 days too. Added that to my account that already had more than 2 months left on that previous $1 deal. Went ahead and added the $1 ultimate pass before the press conference because I was trying to figure out how to get the newly added games. I regret not adding more time, but I feel like there will continue to be free trials and places to get half off passes, so you wouldn't really save much money by buying gold cards right now.

I also just did 1 year.  Ended up with 14 months, which will take me through next summer.  Shortly after that a new xbox console is dropping at the end of next year.  Who knows what the Xbox Ultimate / Game Pass services will look like then.  That was my main reason for not hoarding 3 years of it.

Still haven't decided whether to Hades for $9.99 on there.  Should I support this nonsense or not?

32GB RAM still seems like overkill to me.  By the time games will be using that much the RAM itself will be outdated.  Games needing more than 16GB only just started releasing a year or so ago.

Took it this past Sunday for a $1. I have until a month from that Sunday.

 

If it stays $5, I might have trouble un-subscribing. Especially if they have big-name AAA games on there like Gears 5 & Halo Infinite on Day 1.

 

If it jumps to $10 - I might subscribe on and off...depending on what's out, if certain games are Day 1, game prices, and/or things of that sort.

Thanks for the feedback on the Xbox Game Pass for PC, lads. I ended up getting 16 months of the ultimate pass for $48. Will reassess if I want to resub after that time. Cheers.

Greedfall.
 
Watching on IGN Live right now, this RPG from Spiders coming this year, called Greedfall.
 
17th Century inspired stuff, during the Colonization Period.
 
You are to find & colonize areas; make decisions by diplomacy, stealth, combat, etc.; and stuff of that sort.
 
3rd person action-RPG which has the behind the character camera, looks like it has Dark Souls/Bloodborne type of combat; and also has a tactical pause. This game-world, land, art direction, and whatnot looks very cool and interesting.
 
There's 5 companions you can find in the game, BTW.
 
I've always liked Spiders' games b/c of their settings, ideas, heart, and whatnot (i.e. see Mars: War Logs), even despite their issues and quirks (i.e. sometimes too much back-tracking, combat not being spectacular, stilted writing/dialogue, etc) - but I have yet to find...that Spiders game to really make me say that they've finally reached greatness.
 
I'm liking what I see, so...could this be the one?
 
I think I might've just found my "Sleeper Pick" for E3 2019.
 
Anyways, it's listed on Steam:

I went for it, too. Picked up 3 years worth of Gold for cheap and then converted it all to Ultimate Piss.
