Just discovered GamePass has a feature called "Surprise Me" that chooses a game for you to play next.  In the Xbox App.  My pick?  Dead Rising 4.  So GamePass is better than Steam.

 3. Enslaved.
Have not played.
Says it's similar to stuff I've played - Remember Me, Murdered Soul Suspect, and Binary Domain.

That sounds more like a warning than a recommendation.

I'd share my top 3 but you don't need to see my hentai recommended.

 

Total War: Rome II DLC: Caesar in Gaul DLC from Humble Sega Bundle (cleaning up Humble library keys and this one I DID already own).

Fanatical has a deal where you can get a free Steam key for Deus Ex: GOTY edition if you buy one of the following games:

 

Baldur's Gate: Enhanced Edition - The Complete Saga

Battalion 1944

Battletech

Catherine Classic

Cities Skyline

Darksiders Genesis

Darksiders III

Dead Cells

Deus Ex Mankind Divided: Digital Deluxe Edition 

God Eater 3

GTFO

Just Cause 4

Life is Strange 2: Complete Season

Metro Redux

Monster Hunter Iceborne: Master Edition

Outward

Pathfinder: Kingmaker

Pillars of Eternity: Definitive Edition

Planescape Torment

Puyo Puyo Tetris

Shadow of the Tomb Raider: Definitive Edition

Table Manners

Team Sonic Racing

https://www.fanatica...us-ex-promotion

 

Two things stand out here.  First, I'm only considering this deal because Team Sonic Racing is on sale for $9.99 since I can't find anyone who is still playing either of the first two Sega kart games online.  Second, my fingers are tired from typing the word "edition" over and over.  =;

Pathfinder: Kingmaker is in the newest HB Choice. Better deal to get that over there w/ other stuff, if you're on the Classic Plan still.

 

Also, Deus Ex: GOTY has been dirt-cheap tons of times. Also, who on the PC doesn't own this classic masterpiece of a game by now?

If you can't find anyone playing Transformed, good luck finding anyone playing Team Racing:

Crazy how hard that game tanked. Me personally, the lack of Sega fanservice was an immediate turn-off.

Kitty Cat: Jigsaw Puzzles

Mahjong Deluxe 3

Tales of symphonia. 

I don't even know where the puzzle game came from must have been in a bundle with the mahjongs for a 1$ I bought all those years ago.  Symphonia would be a spot on rec if the pc version wasn't inferior to the gamecube version (despite it being over 15 years old) unless there are any mods and such to greatly improve it.  I already played symphonia to death back when it came out though so that's the larger issue.   I got it for free as part of the preorder freebie from zesty along with all that preorder dlc.

Another day, another random Steam library game. This time it's A Day For Ched. This game is garbage. Questionable voice acting, ancient graphics, unfair difficulty where 2 shots from an alien thing kill you, no auto pickup for ammo and such, a slow not so great story about an alcoholic defeating his demons literally. Feels like a cheap first time using Unity student project type game. I played for 10 or less minutes. garbage/10.

There's about half a dozen or so good games I have yet to play as I wait -- fruitlessly -- for Denuvo to be removed from them.

"Good games," according to Capt. Mooby?

Do these whales even exist for you?

Any recommendations for a decent CPU cooler for around $25? I can get my Ryzen 5 2600 non X to 3.9 all core with the stock cooler, but anything more gets a little toasty.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 (Red LED) is currently discounted to $25 on Amazon.

That sounds more like a warning than a recommendation.

Enslaved had one of the worse cameras I've seen in a game. Made me nauseous to play it, and I actually had to play on the smallest TV/monitor I had in my house.

The game is also totally in love with it self when it just an adequate in every way.

Bleh.

Would second this.  Anything by Cooler Master or Deep Cool will work well for a reasonable price.  For $10ish more you can get RGB versions if that's your thing.

I have a hyper 212 evo and it works just fine keeping my old (hot as hell) overclocked FX chip in line, so I'm sure it would do well with a Ryzen. 

Youtuber Tech Yes City (Brian) swears by the Snowman Cooler (by Artic Cooling??) and it can be had sub $20 if you're willing to wait on a literal slow boat from China. 

 

Also, the Reeven E12 RGB (sold by Scythe) is also around $25 and apparently out performs the Hyper 212 even on 8-core Ryzen chips (tested with an oc'ed 1700X). Plus it has that RGB goodness (if you're into that sort of thing).

Another random Steam game in Phoenix Force. This is a shmup and you play some phoenix moving around with the mouse to beat (it auto shoots) the boss or bosses of a level avoiding attacks and all. After a while you get a super attack that automatically goes off. Graphics are decent enough and the music is simple but OK. Honestly I had a pretty good time trying this one out. About 15 minutes was spent to clear the first island. I feel this could appeal to those who like bullet hell type games, but want something a bit more forgiving. I feel I will likely beat this one. 7/10 and recommended if you have a good mouse and like these type of games.

 

Edit: Dropping this down to 6.5/10. I reached a roadblock with 3 bosses at once and so many projecticles. I'm not sure the mouse is equipped well to handle this. So much for the casual difficulty with me losing about 20+ times in a row. I did end up beating that battle, but it was tough. At another roadblock with 4 bosses.

I tried out a random crap today too.

 

Space Elite Force

https://store.steamp...ce_Elite_Force/

 

It's a very short shmup.  A single playthrough of the campaign takes about 20 minutes.

I don't like the controls.  Keyboard arrow keys and z/x for primary/secondary fire.  I'd prefer WASD and mouse 1/2 to shoot, no way to customize keyboard controls .  Not sure if it's a bug but you can't shoot primary and secondary at the same time.

It uses persistent upgrades with enemies dropping upgrade points and a shop between levels.  Has three different types of primary/secondary weapons.  I only tried the main path for both.  Homing missiles is a bit easy mode once you can get them.  After I got them I didn't use primary weapon except on bosses, where their increased size made primary guns a little more efficient (multiple shots can hit and do more damage than the slower firing but higher damage missile).

There are temporary upgrades that drop when you destroy "upgrade ships".  2x score, upgrade point magnet, a lightning bolt (I think it just makes primary guns a bit more powerful), and shields.  The shield is mostly useless.  It makes 3 options circle you and they absorb 3 hits... but THEY have a hitbox.  So they die when you wouldn't have taken damage anyways.

No speed upgrades.  The ship felt a little slow for me.

I only played standard mode, but it was very easy.  There's very basic bull-hell style patterns towards the end game.  I haven't tried hardcore or infinity mode yet.

Cheesemints are very cheesy.  They're almost all "beat this level" and "get this upgrade".  Only three exceptions are "complete hardcore", "get 1,000,000 score in infinity", and "complete a mission with no damage".

 

I wouldn't suggest buying it, but it's not bad if you get it in a bundle, but not a whole lot of replay-ability.  I'll play it enough to get all the cheesos, but it'll probably wind up being < 2 hours.

no interest in jet set radio

maybe i'll play dishonored

 

anyway i'm not on here as much as i used to be. i just lost my job last week so that's cool. kinda anxious and sad but on the other hand i have some money saved up so even if i don't get unemployment i should be fine. just taking the week off to relax before i figure out my next move, i've played a shit load of skyrim in the last week, still an addictive ass game. trying to view it as just taking a vacation kind of

 

edit: also i'm struggling w/the idea if i wanna even bother w/humble monthly this month. if i suspend my subscription do you guys know if i'm still locked into classic pricing or whatever?

Sorry to hear about the job Passport.  Sure you'll find a better job eventually.

 

If you pause, rather than cancel your Humble Monthly subscription then you wont loose the pricing.  So just pause for a month and you good.

Sorry to hear that, man. I was doing about the same, playing through the backlog and watching shows I was too busy for before.

 

What line of work are you in? EA is hiring a bunch of people. The FBI is incredibly nervous about China's 5G initiative and what they could be putting in computers, so plenty of forensics and cybersecurity work too.

 

My experience with unemployment was incredibly bad.

tl;dr your case is different but Fuck 'em. Unless you were fired for a disability or are a minority, they will look for an excuse not to pay you. Filing feels like a chore/punishment.

One of the reasons I don't hangout with people from work, only talk about only three broad subjects (wife, cats, sports), and just be polite to  everyone, and never ever spend time with female coworkers alone.

Good luck on the job search passports. It's a tough market out there, and employers are very picky, but another will come if you hammer at it hard enough. Also yeah pause and it shouldn't take you off of that pricing. If I didn't find about 3 games per Humble Monthly I would play I skip it myself.

Oh, man, just tried the Steam recommender and my 1 and 3 picks were ridiculous

 

Dota2, similar to Pubg, L4D2, Slay the Spire

One Finger Death Punch

CSGO, similar to Pubg, L4D2, Euro Truck Simulator 2

 

Also, I want to second South Park Stick of Truth as my favorite turn-based rpg of all time. Fractured seemed to improve a lot of stuff, but for some reason wasn't as fun and of course the writing wasn't as good.
