I'm sure all of the Borderlands are better than the mess and performance-garbage Fallout 76 is putting forth on this  freeweekend. My God, performance is atrocious on FO76.

 

FO76 is like ESO during No-NDA Beta, running at 1080p at 25-35fps on Medium (GTX 970 desktop) - which wouldn't be so bad, if it wasn't having stuttering and other frame-time issues; and if this didn't look graphically worse than FO4.

 

Meh.

Tiny Tina had a tendency to be grating at times, but I guess the character never bothered me as much as it seems to bother others. Also, if you play through Tiny Tina's Assault on Dragon Keep, you get to see another side of her that helps round things out a bit.

 

The strongest writing in the series, in my opinion, was General Knoxx.

 

But I don't really play any of them for the chatter as I tend to forget all about it when I'm out roaming around destroying the local fauna.

The more I think about it the more and more I'm getting really excited for Baldur's Gate III.  This is the most exciting vg announcement since 2077, for me.  5th edition, in a new BG game, made by Larian Studios.   omg.  I can't wait to play a legit D&D game with Minsc and Boo and pals, have branching dialogues and quest outcomes, save scum unique equipment, acquire weird magical named unique +3 loot, and romance some green skinned lizard lady that betrays me later so that I have to cleave her into exploding little fleshy bits.

I haven't played Baldur's Gate 2/expansion or Neverwinter Nights in ages. I also haven't played any of the ones trying to be spiritual successors.  I should be ready to play the new one when it comes out.

You're just exceptionally stupid, since I said that TPS is underrated and didn't make any comparisons between it and BL2 save for the combat. And you also seem to be confusing the poor humor/dialogue and "rip your ears off annoying" (this should be hyphenated) with all the cringe lines Ashly Burch voiced as Tiny Tina--the most annoying character in the entire franchise. Calling everyone "shawty" and stringing random words together before saying butt/badonkadonk/booty is funny to you? Are you 12? You don't seem to appreciate the Australian-style situational irony as comedy in TPS, so now I'm wondering if you need to hear ass-related slang in a high-pitched squeal every minute to be entertained. Would be fitting for your perceived maturity.

 

It's a humorous Mad Max, set in space with gravity mechanics and fucking lasers. What happened to the guardians from 1? You find out. Who are the villains in 2? You find out. Who is Jack, even? You find out.

 

TPS is a good game, and it's underrated. But you exceptionally stupid people are entitled to your own opinions. Mooby asked if he should play it, and we both said yes, so that's that.

Because someone saying ' bang tidy ' and ' Ere to elp! ' is so creatively funny.  Seriously, google the character Pickle and listen to some of his inane dialogue and then imagine him talking to you constantly throughout about 1/3 of the game.  I guess you must have to be highly educated to appreciate a horribly dramatized accent saying the stupidest shit ever.

 

On top of that the game only has a handful of environments and most of them are just the blue'ish gray of the outdoor moon areas.  Good thing you enjoy the floating low gravity because the fast travel stations are so spaced out you're going to be spending a bunch of your time just floaty jumping around in a drab environment getting from A to B, A+ gameplay right there.  TPS is rated exactly how it should be and is worth playing only because it is dirt cheap.  Claptastic Voyage was much better than the base game.

 

Also the irony of talking about a 'perceived maturity' is astounding.

Celestial Fury ftw. Bah, I'm going to have to get the enhanced versions now.

I'm so psyched for BG3. Still a bit concerned about Larian's ability to craft a good story and have decent writing and whether that's a good fit for them w/BG (haven't played DOS2 yet, but wasn't impressed by the writing in DOS 1), but really excited overall.

What have I started?

 

(also happy Anthony Burch is no longer writing for Gearbox but sad Ashley Burch is still voicing Tina)

 

(also also sort of said that the way the new BL2 DLC was written, particularly Hector, was sort of Burch-ish although he was more like General Knoxx in a sort of meme-ish way).

I started as a console gamer, so it helped me to become more acclimated with PC gaming.  However, the controller isn't great for all types of games, so I wouldn't toss your Xbox 360/Xbox One/PS4 controller if you use one of those with certain games.  It's more like they should be used in tandem with each other.  It also works as a mouse for most other types of PC tasks.  So, you can use the controller as a mouse with the touchpad.  You can also create custom controls for certain games.  I bought mine 4 years ago, and it's been a mainstay for me ever since.  

 

The video on the Steam page is pretty spot-on in its description.  Watch it, but I'd pick it up for $35.

Also, GameStop gift cards are still 10% off at Dollar General until closing time tonight.  You could go there, get one of the $25-$500 GameStop gift cards, and save some money on your Steam Controller purchase.  Hope this information helps!

I need to play the new dlc.  Also I don't think I ever went back and played the Claptrap DLC for TPS so I guess I need to do that too. I'm sure I'll get around to it soon considering I preordered DMC5 because I was so excited for a new one and still haven't played it.   :roll:

The new DLC is okay.  It mostly just adds an easy way to farm legendaries and pearlescents.  The rainbow weapons are primarily designed to help kill the new raid boss who, in turn, drops stuff to help you through Digistruct Peak OP levels.

I started Metro: Exodus from the Xbox for PC Game Pass earlier today.

 

Gorgeous-looking game, to say the very least. Technically, it just looks stunning. Nothing surprising, given 4A's pedigree. Runs really well too on my SC15 gaming laptop. Had it on High at 1080p and it was doing 100-120fps. On Extreme at 1080p, it's doing 60-70fps.

 

Gameplay, survival stuff (replacing filters), gunplay, action, and combat is as visceral and as good as ever, for this franchise.

 

Storytelling, writing, and narrative already seems good so far too.

Fanatical has a Pick and Mix bundle where you can buy Steam keys for any three of the games offered for $1.49.

I grabbed Fahrenheit: Indigo Prophecy Remastered, Geometry Wars 3, and the Lion's Song Season Pass for the $1.49.  A great deal for three decent games.

Anyone else having issues with Steep crashing? As soon as I start it up, it tries to connect to the server and crashes. I haven't found a solution online that works (deleting old saves, updating Windows, etc.)

finally beat assassins creed origins after stopping when it first came out. i hate how they changed the combat to make it more dark souls. i remember in ac 2 the best way to kill a guy was to disarm them and kill them with their own weapon. anyways as an open world game its fine. probably start odyssey after finishing some other games, namely ff xv and bayonetta.

Just started FF XV last night as a matter of fact.  Great graphics, but I'm hoping that the rest will grow on me.

For me that didn't happen until the postgame dungeon.  I try to forget that the bro roadtrip happened.

For everyone who plays Rocket League, here's a limited time only in-game redemption code that will unlock a Never Say Die Limited Decal from the movie The Goonies.

 

TRUFFLESHUFFLE

 

And here are some other limited time codes that unlock decals, wheels, and nitros that still work as of today.

 

SHAZAM

POPCORN
RLBIRTHDAY

RLNITRO

 

I used these on the PS4, Xbox One, and Steam versions of the game.
