You can get a free 100 tokens every day. 

https://store.steamp...unarnewyear2020

Click the envelopes under the main banner.

 

The only other way is to give Steam new money.  You get nothing if you use old gabenbucks.

I never idle cards so that's no issue...

Also doesn't count if you use a gift card that you added more than a week ago.

Who hasn't been so into idling cards that they forgot to go to the bathroom.

Does anyone else here own the game Streets of Rogue? I'm trying to use the Vampire character that I just unlocked and I'm playing with an Xbox One controller, but I can't figure out which button to press to make him bite people when he stands behind them.

The game's menu isn't helpful at all, and I can't find a wiki online that explains or shows the controls. Thanks.

Not sure if that works.

I figured it out.  You have to press the left trigger on the controller to start biting a NPC or enemy character.  But it will only work if there isn't any other character around who can witness it.  I assume that it will work the same way with the cannibal and zombie characters once I unlock them.  But thanks though!

I don't own it myself but i am playing it via library sharing with my Bro-in-law and I have to say, I am having more fun with it than anything I can think of recently. I've put 57 hours in so far and have no plans to stop. So so good. They keep adding tons of content too with Early Access ending sometime this year. Be aware, i think you could get it from the Epic Store for $10 when it was on sale after their coupon thing.

That $10 for Hades was a "glitch"

I think that was when it went down to 7$. The recent $10 was when it was 20$ on Epic and they gave 10$ coupon around new years.

If anyone else has wanted to add Kohan to Steam but not pay much for doing so, Kohan Warchest (all three games) is $3 in the Lunar sale.  Forum threads sound like it takes a little effort getting it to run on Win 10, but it's a neat old fantasy RTS with custom mini-squad units and zones of control/supply.  Kohan: Ahriman's Gift is the one I'd suggest trying.

A Plague's Tale: Innocence is now on the Xbox for PC Game Pass. About 42 GB or download and install on the PC.

I'm about 4 hours or so into this. Yeah, this is really good, so far.

The storytelling, presentation, writing, dialogue, and voice-acting is really good here. And this game is really cinematic, too. This game gets so much right here in this regard, I don't even know where to begin. This is really where the game really excels at, if you ask me.

You have to play stealthy a lot. A lot of kills here are a few to no hits, so you will want to play smart, slow, and stealthy. You need to throw things like rocks & use your slingshot to distract guards/enemies. You'll need to often sneak around enemies to get to the next bush, area, place to hide, etc etc...or you'll wind up dead quickly.

There are puzzles & things of that sort. You will need to know when to avoid rats, use light to your advantage to ward them off, know when to light your torch, move blocks around to reach other areas so you can climb stuff, have your brother Hugo help you reach areas, and other things. Nothing that difficult, mind you - but these feel like stuff you would see in Tomb Raider games and Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. For some stuff, will need good timing...or since this game will kill you in a flash...yeah, since you can't take many - heck, if any - hits here.

The game looks great. The art style for its environments & characters looks great. Also, the also technical graphics quality here is great here too, to say the least. This isn't from a AAA studio, but you'd think it is here...given how well of job they've done here on this stuff. Simply put: it looks outstanding in every regard.

And now, for the worst aspect of the game: performance (of the game). The performance here at a native 1080p just isn't going to hit 60fps, if you're running say a 6GB GTX 1060 at High here; speaking from experience here (i7 7700HQ; 16 GB RAM; 6GB GTX 1060; W10 x64). You're unfortunately going to be in the 40's or 50's here on a GTX 1060 6GB card, for framerates. To keep the framerate stable at around 60fps, I set it at 1080p resolution (to keep the crisp in-game HUD's and menus), but also have it render downwards at around 90% (which would make it render in-game at 1728x972) from the graphics menu.

Despite my issue with performance, which was easily solved for me to hit 60fps (with a dynamic resolution render down a little bit), there's very little for me to complain about so far. So far, the game's really good.

I just bit on Hades. Watched a Let's Play and it seemed interesting. It is really fun to play even in early access. It's very quick and is really an arena fighter rouge lite where you collect materials to unlock quite a few things to make your main character the Prince of the Underworld stronger during the run and for future runs. Okay amount of weapons so far. God powers are really fun and cool to look at and all. The difficulty seems not as punishing sometimes and very punishing other times (like when the screen is filled with bombs or projectiles). Very decent enough graphics and very addictive gameplay. Unless you play it now wait for it to be cheaper and released. It's really fun though and is an excellent palette cleanser between other longer games and when you just want to do a run.

>.< that doesn’t make it $10

Edit: unless you were planning on getting an item first and the $10 coupon was just an extra perk. Someone buying just Hades wouldn’t have gotten it for $10

Ok, let me clarify: you could get it for $10 around new years with Epic's coupon. Last I checked, 20-10=10.

um Hades was $10 during the last EGS sale.  I had it in my cart but decided not to buy it.  You are confused.

Did they give the coupon without buying anything? Maybe I’m misremembering

Wish ITAD would remove glitch prices if it was the lowest price >.<

You don't have to buy anything to get the coupon. It is automatically applied. Right now, you can get Hades for $15 on Epic (not on sale, normal price is $25) or $20 on Steam (20% sale price)

Epic have out one $10 coupon without purchase. Then you got one with every purchase. The $10 coupon is good until May I think and is good on anything above a certain price, not just Hades.

Yo are they rebranding Torchlight frontiers as Torchlight 3 or is it a brand new game. I'm at "work" so I can't check. Any help is appreciated

Torchlight: Frontiers renamed to Torchlight III...and more info on the game:

https://www.destruct...mo-579039.phtml

 

Notes:

- Torchlight: Frontiers has been renamed to Torchlight III

- Torchlight III's leveling system is scrapped (based on gear & item stats)

- Torchlight III will bring back its leveling system, similar in style to Torchlight II.

- Torchlight III is no longer free-to-play

- Torchlight III is now a "premium" game with a cost to purchase (like previous Torchlight titles).

- Torchlight III drops the MMO & open-world aspect.

- TL3 is now being changed to a linear-style game with Acts, like previous Torchlight game.

- Torchlight III is now has modes for offline or optional online...just like Torchlight II.

- Only shared zones and social spaces, when you're online, are towns

- When online, combat zones are mostly private for combat zones in dungeons & other combat zones.

- TL3 is set for Steam for release maybe this Summer...with console versions possibly coming later.

Yeah, we're on the same page, it looks like!

 

I saw the news on Destructoid a little bit ago...and pretty much picked-out & posted the important info.

 

Sounds like it's returning to form, due to focus testing wanting it to be more like Torchlight 2.

They are basically re-tooling and re-doing it...to be more like Torchlight 2.

 

Sounds like what I really want out of Torchlight title - i.e more Torchlight 2.

 

Sounds great to me.

Torchlight was boring.  And I hate micromanaging endless amounts of meaningless loot.
