I played a bit of 3089 - Futuristic Action RPG and it's an improvement over it's predecessor as I found where quests where handled but it still was pretty bad. The graphics were similar and the shooting was super imprecise and weird. There is some depth here, but it just feels clunky. This one seems playable and has a story I guess. Honestly still not recommended. 5.5/10

Fanatical has a Warhammer book bundle going. It has 3 tiers with 26 books in all. It does have 5 repeats of the Multilanguage Tales Warhammer Humble Bundle and 9 repeats from the Horus Heresy Humble Bundle (2 of those are the same repeats). For those that own the Humble Horus Heresy bundle this includes 3 more books (5, 8-9) in the top tier. This seems a lot cleaner for laying out and maybe has better choices. I don't think there are any repeats from the Series Starters bundle also from Humble Bundle.

 

$1 tier (6 total products), $10 Tier (13 total products), $17.50 tier (26 total products).

Are you telling me the most highly anticipated game of 2020 doesn't even support Windows 98? smh my head, Mr. Gates is so greedy. At least I've still got my PS2; Sony would never let me down.

LOL.

 

You know, I'm actually surprised CP 2077 is supporting W7, to be honest here; even now w/ the DX12 support now there in a recent update!

 

CP 2077 only supports W7 now b/c an update brought DX12 to W7, but W8/W8.1 is not getting DX12 libraries.

 

I'd figure - most that had W8 or W8.1, even rolled back to W7 or just jumped up to W10. First thing I did when I bought my Acer W8 laptop - took that Free W10 upgrade and jumped it up.

 

I do not like W8 that, TBH. I don't know why most people kept W8 or W8.1, if they actually did. W8 felt like it Beta for W10, TBH.

 

I figure most people use either W7 or W10 these days, which is probably why Microsoft didn't put DX12 on W8, yet they did bring DX12 over to W7.

 

Also doesn't sound like CP 2077 is supporting Vulkan here at all.

I'm not sure what to think of dx11 only... I don't always play the newest games but it seems like every game I try to play in dx12 seems to have stability issues compared to dx11.

FTFY.

 

Yes, I normally only run DX11 mode also, if given the option b/t DX12 and DX11. When I ran Metro Exodus, I got better performance in DX11.

I hope they (CDPR) can get it going well in DX12, since it's pretty much...the only choice we have.

Looks like no DX11 and no Vulkan support here.

Fuck Epic for that dumb shit.  Don't advertise a game as free for a week and then change your mind.  It won't sell now.  I assume it'll eventually be free down the line.

Oh mighty Chinese overlords, please forgive RCLAFO for this momentary transgression. He was really looking to this survival/crafting/open world/building/[insert generic game element descriptor here] experience with penises and is just upset about the decision, in light of your infinite wisdom, to remove it at the last minute. PLEASE don't sacrifice him so the mighty Pooh bear might be appeased as we're sorta fond of him on these boards. Xièxiè, Xièxiè

I just remembered I won Conan off Steamgifts. I suppose with ARK already given away, the quota for multiplayer survival games was filled.

Twitch Prime Games for July.

  • Turok 2: Seeds of Evil
  • Dear Esther
  • GRIP: Combat Racing
  • Kunai
  • Dark Devotion

According to Reddit, GRIP is missing online multiplayer. I downloaded Turok 2 and surprisingly it has online multiplayer, but it's pretty much dead anyways.

Anyone have any recommendations for games that are the best Diablo like action RPGs? My wishlist got swiped a few months ago so I have no idea anymore. I have around $40 in steam credit that I want to finally burn.

So far I got Grim Dawn and Titan quest. No DLC for them, are those worth it?

Given the problems with the last week of a new big patch for Conan Exiles, they should be giving it out for free. Its not like there isn't $40+ of dlc for it.

i booted up "a short hike" tonight, it was a free game from epic at some point...wasn't expecting much but it's not bad. kind of an adventure/exploration/platformer blend, hltb says it's like 2-4 hours so might be something worth booting up if you just want a short game to try

Torchlight 1 - https://store.steamp...500/Torchlight/

Torchlight 2 - https://store.steamp.../Torchlight_II/

 

Literally, Runic Games (dev's behind TL1+2) was formed by some ex-Diablo guys (Schaefer brothers, Max and Erich - who are co-founders of Blizzard North and creators of Diablo) and Travis Baldree (who developed FATE).

 

Matt Uelmen, who also worked on the music for Diablo 1+2, did the music for the two Torchlight games.

 

Torchlight 3 is in Early Access and is supposedly currently a mess (i.e. go see the IGN Review), as it's currently online-only, has connection issues, and its leveling-system/skill system is similar to Diablo 3 (i.e. not much choice and no stat # building, so most character builds won't be unique) - so, until it gets an offline mode and actually improves, I'd say wait on TL3.

I'm sure this has been discussed before but need some advice on RDR2 pc before the sale expires. I played about 30 hours on the ps4 version and then decided to sell my copy with the intention of eventually buying the PC version. I put it on the back burner and recently thought about finally pulling the trigger. I just purchased a gaming laptop and should be able to max out the settings. 

 

So my question.......Is the PC version noticeably better, more immersive and worth the platform jump? 

 

I've read mixed statements on the differences between versions but would love to hear the opinions from the CAG community.

It all depends on what your builds specs are. In general the resolution and framerate are going to be better than a base PS4. Played Red Dead 2 on a Xbox One X, then switched to pc. Saw quite a boost in visual detail and a stable framerate. Most of the mixed reviews are for Social Club, which can be a pain at times if it goes down. If you are just going to play single player then go for it. If you don’t like it you can always get a steam refund before the time limit.

The Van Helsing games are well regarded and inexpensive.  Path of Exile is also well regarded and free (never played; assume it has a microtransaction model?)

Very, though 20 bucks could get your everything you could possibly need stash tab wise and whatnot.  To look cool and your going to have to drop more.

Finally another Steam sale and my wishlist is clean again. I actually went farther and cleaned the games not discounted and F2P games. Lots of culling instead of adding for sure.

Quible Sphere: Marble Madness on a neon track.  Run the race and get scored on time, collecting blocks and not dying.  I pretty much sucked at it but I could see it appealing to people who enjoy 2hard4u stuff and who have better keyboard/controller skills than I do.  Has Workshop support on Steam to download new tracks or an editor to make your own.  I got it from Itch.io but it's currently 49¢ on Steam.

 

Record Store Nightmare: Tapper as a shooter.  You're a record store employee during the zombie apocalypse.  Kill zombies shambling down record store aisles as you wait for rescue by flinging vinyl albums at them.  Collect more classic albums and either use them for ammo or reshelve them to get a CD-powered super shot.  Cheapo retro graphics and the controls weren't great but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever played either.  Got it in the Itch.io bundle but is 99¢ on Steam right now.

 

Fossil Echo: Pretty game that is frustrating to play.  Platformer about some kid doing... a thing, I dunno.  Traveling through some land or some bullshit.  Looks really nice but the controls aren't great and it expects a lot out of you.  My initial thought was "Well, I must just suck at these games" (which I do) but the reviews for it also say that it's just not well made on the platforming.  Too bad; if the game play was actually fun, I bet this could have been a minor darling.  You won't want to buy it anyway since it's $9.99 on Steam and isn't on sale (I was playing it via Itch.io in case you've missed the theme)

 

A Hole New World: I believe this is what you gamer kids call a Metroidvania.  NES lookin' game where you jump and shoot and find random turkey legs for health.  The gimmick here is that there's holes in the ground and jumping into one puts you into an upside down underworld map, which you use to avoid hazards or find hidden goodies.  Get it?  Hole New World?  Eh?  Eh?  Anyway, I'm not the best person to be saying if these sorts of games are good or not but it seemed like it was good.  Controls were fine, graphics were retro, when I died, it was obviously because I sucked and not because the game is bullshit.  Steam reviews are generally positive and it's on sale for $2.99
