Call of Cthulhu (2018 by Cyanide) [Steam key] = $8.99 a few places.

 

Prices are before discounts, vouchers, etc.

 

Humble (before HBC Discount) - https://www.humblebu...call-of-cthulhu

Fanatical (before vouchers) - https://www.fanatica...cj_aid=13212017

 

ITAD says it's a Historic Low - https://isthereanyde...ofcthulhu/info/

 

It recently dropped in MSRP and has been getting cheap?  Possible monthly candidate?  I fakeybro'd it quite a while ago and barely touched it.  Story of my life.

 

Yeah absolutely, the one word that comes to my mind when I think about how violent criminal degenerates should be depicted in media is also "endearing".

There's plenty of endearing criminals in media.  Even if they're not endearing, there's other ways to make you want to play them or make them likeable in some ways.  Trevor has none of that.

GTA V was pretty cool.  I just got bored and quit playing around the 20-30 hour mark, like many other open world games.

 

That was in 2013. 

 

My friend and I think that it's eternally funny that Sony led with GTA V for their PS5 game reveal conference a couple of months ago though.

Scrolling through the last 7 pages or so, there is literally only about 3 deals actually mentioned. Can the mods please restore some order here?

Someone link @Kinjimuto to the Humblebundle homepage, the Epic Store weekly free game page, and the Steam specials.  There you go little bro.  You're welcome, and pretty much set for the year.  Now get back to your Vault.

3 out of 10 has it where season one is 5 episodes, released weekly, for free. I may play it if I have some time. I always have a stopping point for open world games, and it's usually close to the 20 hour mark. Happened for SR3 recently and will happen to others as well. I just get bored and usually the main storyline isn't strong enough to keep me going. I'm reaching it somewhat in Ghosts of Tsushima right now. I'm close to the end of chapter 1 after about 20ish hours I'm guessing.

 

Also has anyone played Undermine? It released out of EA, and just want to to see if it's worth playing in the future.

There's plenty of endearing criminals in media.  Even if they're not endearing, there's other ways to make you want to play them or make them likeable in some ways.  Trevor has none of that. 

Characters don't always need to be likeable, IMHO. While in many cases, it will help many players to actually make them like-able - eh, depending on the story, plot, characters, and any other points the game makes (especially when it's satire), etc etc - some might be able to get away w/ making someone not like-able.

 

Michael did something to Trevor, in their past - from a story and character stand-point. Story and character-wise, you need that mission & scene especially, to understand...why Trevor's, more or less, a lost cause here.

 

Deeper than that on Trevor, I also think Trevor is a metaphor, built to facilitate every open-world GTA players' modern GTA power-fantasy, too - to do crazy, bad, reckless, and destructive stuff...without much of a care of the world, its inhabitants, and any sort of real estate/property - and this is why they (Rockstar) built him the way they did.

 

They have to, more so than anything, facilitate the story and things have to fit for the characters for why they are the way they are. Whether you feel what they did is worth buying into or not, that's another story entirely.

 

I think Trevor was purposely made to NOT be like-able. Heck, Michael too, for that matter - especially since he represents the American Dream...totally gone wrong. He had and current has everything in a material sense (money, cars, clothes mansion), but everything else...is a mess in his life (the situation w/ his wife and kids); hence the mid-life crisis.

 

There are reasons for all of this mess, so...whether you feel it's earned or not from the reasons, feels done before, feels cliches, or whatever - you'd need to play the game & its main missions to realize why they are the way they are; and then decide if you actually buy into what the game's selling here and their reasons & devices to try to execute this.

 

You have to also keep in mind - there are 3 leads, not 1. Out of the 3 leads, Franklin's probably the most like-able one of the crew. 

 

Niko from GTA4 is very like-able and often says he wishes he didn't do the things he did, but still does them anyways and still does anything to try to reach the American Dream - but heck, he's certainly no saint either. Most GTA characters, to be honest, are not saints and it can be a roll of the dice on if they're like-able or not. 

 

I certainly didn't find Vercetti that like-able (just like Michael in GTA5) - but given that he wasn't a blank slate like Claude (from GTA3), I certainly enjoyed them giving Vercetti some actual character, story, plot, and stuff...and that often was not seen from action games and open-world games that we often didn't see back in that era. And oh, Ray Liotta was awesome as a voice-actor in this role.

Other threads worth adding, IMHO:

Also, currently - GOG is giving away Witcher 1, for those that somehow don't already own this game from GOG or somehow didn't buy it dirt-cheap in recent years.

You guys are discussing too many game deals at once.  Spread them out so the post police don't cite us again!

I didn't own it or hear about it being free so that's a deal that apparently fell under the radar.  Never saw wario64 post it on his twitter either.

Haven't played a GTA since SA but that one seemed to open things up a whole lot more from the previous games as far as the scope of the world and the number of vehicles you could use. I agree that GTA: VC had a better atmosphere. Maybe it's just the Miami setting.


I haven’t played a GTA since SR2.

Can someone create a bot that will repost Wario's feed into this thread so there will be deals aplenty?

SR3 is pretty good.  When I tried a demo of SR4 I found it too over-the-top and distanced from its typical GTA-clone status.

I liked SR4 - but yeah, that felt more like a superhero type of game, like say Prototype.

 

I certainly preferred SR3.

I have that one. And its DLC.

It's backlogged - just like Syberia 1 and 2.

 

Detention was one that looked interesting to me.

Spelunky 2 coming to PC shortly after its September 15th PS4 release. Good to know that I have a couple months or so to clear out my backlog before all my free time gets consumed.
