I wonder if the open-world Ubisoft Star Wars game will be one planet with cut-and-paste palette-swapped regions, or more of an open-galaxy game with cut-and-paste palette-swapped planets...? In any case, I can't wait to experience all the glitches!

You play as a lone Republic trooper, running through the streets of Coruscant and taking on 3 varieties of Empire troops that have taken over the city and are all bullet sponges. They’re adding an innovative dark zone feature where enemies have double the bullet sponginess and can one-shot kill you. Oh and Coruscant has been ravaged by an intergalactic pandemic, so it’s really just you and the three types of troops. Enjoy!

It's a cry for help.  MysterD wants to stop but he can't without our help.  Everyone bookmark the free games page, let MysterD know, and then tag 5 friends and ask them to do the same.  Once you do, please quote this post and type only these words "I am your true CAG friend."  I am doing this social experiment to see which of my CAG friends are my true CAG friends and read my posts.  Do this if you care about MysterD and me, BaeStuped.

I do post my thoughts, impressions, and/or reviews on games - so there's that.

I do post some news on game dev's, games, whatnot, etc - so there's also that.

I do post stuff on upcoming tech, PC deals, GPU deals, hardware deals, etc etc - also that too.

I sometimes post thoughts on TV show, movies, etc etc - add that to the list.

 

And in general, I always find something to post about, so... [shrug]

Is this like those viruses back in the 90s that infect your drive if you so much as look at a certain phrase?

Finished the last story DLC for Borderlands 3 (Psycho Krieg and the Fantastic Fustercluck) tonight. People had made mention of bulletspong bosses and, holy hell, they weren't lying... Some of it was my fault. I skipped from Mayhem 5 to Mayhem 10. I eventual changed my class and shield mods to ones that focus on Mozie's mech and that fixed some of it but not all.

The story for the DLC was pretty solid, might be tied or the best. I'm not sure. Very solid. I would recommend the first season pass.

Too busy not playing games and actually watching TV, to brick-down more expressions of that sort.

 

Maybe this weekend, I'll spend some more time with Disco Elysium from The House of Sweeney.

Nice freebie, tis a fun little game. What is more amazing though is that Humble is having a two week Winter sale now. Two weeks after the Christmas sale ended.

First Season Pass??!?!

 

Wait. Are there plans for a 2nd Season Pass with more DLC's?

 

EDIT:

Checked Steam; there's a 2nd Season Pass. Sheesh.

I wonder if there'll be a 3rd Pass...

Currently the only fix is to show someone else the icon within seven days, otherwise your hard drive dies.

The second season pass for BL3 is cheaper on Nuuvem for anybody who wants it.  $22.49 vs the $29.99 on Steam.  I picked it up the other day because I am going to play soon and I was actually interested in the Arms Race mode although it seems to get a lot of hate in reviews.  

 

I was thinking I would play BL3 next but before the holidays I was going through BL2 DLC that I never got around to playing so I decided to finish that stuff off first.  I still have all of the BL games installed because I intended to go back and do more in all of them and just never did it.  So I decided that I am going to get at least part of them finished and uninstall them.  I am not going crazy and leveling every class or anything, but I am finishing all of the DLC and doing the achievements as long as none of them require a huge time investment or grind.  I wonder if the first one is going to feel too dated though, I might change my mind about finishing it when I go back to it.

Finally getting to watching the entirety of BSG for the first time. Currently a quarter of the way into season two.

 

Keep thinking of CAG for some odd reason...

The first season pass is absolutely worth it -- four solid story-based add-ons that may even be better than the main game.

 

I've held off on the second and I understand why it gets so much hate. All it consists of right now is a sort-of rogue-like game mode, an additional skill tree, some cosmetic stuff, and talk about a "director's cut". So far they haven't been very forthcoming about what kind of content a director's cut might include.

 

The real pisser is the price -- $30.

 

The combination of "stuff no one really asked for" and Gearbox not being more specific about what is else is coming makes that price hard to swallow. And it kinda makes it feel like they're doing a cash-grab that just requires you to believe that they'll come through with the remaining content because "we can totally trust them."

Nice.  That's right around the time that Starbuck starts giving you a weird halfsie.

my current case (https://www.amazon.c.../dp/B0058P5S9A/) has room enough for children to live in, but it is getting a bit dated so it'd probably get replaced.

Coincidentally, I just bought that same case.  While it does show some age (no SSD mounts except to screw them to the HDD drawers, a bunch of 5.25" mounts for reasons, etc) it was still the most "modern" case I could find with a side vent which also had room for my AIO and everything else.

 

Loaded everything into it last night (plus a new PSU and two more 1TB SSDs) and I like it.  The giant fans and tons of ventilation have really paid off -- 5C lower GPU temps in Time Spy and my 3080 has gone from 75-78C in Red Dead Online to 65-68C.  The thing is friggin' massive though.

Funny how cases can stick around like that; I bought it back in 2012 and you've picked it up for a new build almost 10 years later. Maybe it's worth keeping around after all...

Apparently there's some trick to get the front panel fan controller to work but I never bothered

The instructions for hooking up the fans are awful.  I muddled through and put the front/side fans on one of the controllers mainly to save on MB fan headers. But, in the process, I saw some older reviews for the case and think they HAVE upgraded some features since its earlier days (for example, they mention (2) USB 3.0 pass throughs for the front ports but now it has a standard connection to the USB 3.0 header).  But the pamphlet makes no mention of how to set the fans up and the Molex power connectors are cheaply built and required some pin-fiddlin'.  Just a reminder that your case was made by Rosewill!

That's awesome! And unexpected. I figure if I get doubles from bundles that all the regulars have at least one copy too.

I haven't played it either but the reviews are solid.

Disco Elysium.

 

After almost approximately 25 hours of my 1st play-through with this, according to Epic Game Store, this fantastic game is now in the books.

And what a great book and CRPG this one certainly was!

The game's writing, dialogue, prose, story, plot-twists, reveals, characters, world-building, the actual role-playing, the decision-making, and whatnot - it's all just fantastic. This might be more than just a candidate for numerous awards from me for Best Game That Played in 2021 (already, and it's January 2021 here!), but this is more than that.

Disco Elysium is one of the Best CRPG's Ever Made, belonging in the leagues & conversation of The CRPG Greats, joining the likes of CRPG's like Baldur's Gate II, Dragon Age: Origins, and Planescape: Torment.
