AMD rewards; just to confirm I'm not the only one still waiting for my steam "key" for Resident Evil 2, right?


I received mine Friday evening. And I redeemed my AMD code I think 3 days before the release. I would contact their support.

I had two Powercolor AMD graphics cards (7850 and a R9 290) and besides being loud, they ran great for 1080p gaming! They were priced really good too! Only game I remember having issues with is Typing of the Dead which has problems with all AMD cards. I believe there is a work around though.

 

I recently got a 4K tv, so I upgraded to a PNY GTX 1080 about 2 months ago for 4k gaming. Wanted to try an Nvidia card for the first time in 10 years. Was having a ton of problems right out the gate with it. Screen was constantly flickering while playing any games, thought it was my HDMI cables or the card. But after a-lot of troubleshooting discovered it was the drivers. Had to find a random beta driver on the forums to fix it. I remember people talking about how shit AMD drivers are, I never had much of any problems as long as I installed the stable ones.

Then I was having major issues with some games not booting, discovered uninstalling NVidia Geforce experience solved this. Never had issues like this with AMD's similar software called AMD settings.

 

Speaking of AMD setting, that software runs pretty well. Geoforce Experience is a total POS and requires a login as well for god knows what they want to track on your PC. Since I had to uninstall it, I have to look for driver updates manually now which is a bit of a pain.

 

Besides these problems, the GTX 1080 is a great card and is pretty quiet compared to my Powercolors. In the hopefully far future when I have to upgrade this card, I will most likely choose whatever card gives the best bang for the buck. Screw brand loyalty!

Emailed the Frostpunk devs with my Amazon invoice and received a free steam key. Awesome! Can’t wait to play it in 5 years :)

Looks like that $3 copy of Frostpunk on Amazon from a few days ago were pirated copies from GOG.

I requested a refund from Amazon yesterday, which they did honor. Also got an email today apologizing and giving me an extra $10 Amazon credit lol.

I've never actually *played* a Yakuza game, but picked up Kiwami on PS4 as a cheap sale. It's interesting that Yakuza 0 Steam is so cheap relative to the physical PS4 version. Guess I'm getting 0 on Steam then!

Its even cheaper on fanatical.

Since there is no campaign in Black Ops 4, will they still have overpriced DLC/season pass?

I have an AMD graphics card (R9 290) and am very excited for this! My PC is in the living room and if someone wants to watch TV, I could continue playing on my Android tablet would be awesome.

I have purchased MUA1+2 on steam awhile ago and tried playing with some friends for some couch co-op. Controller support is completely broken which ruins this game. They were extremely lazy with this remaster. The problem with controller support is that player 1 controls player 2, 3 and 4 for some reason. If player 1 punches, player 2,3 and 4 punch. If player 1 walks forward, player 2,3 and 4 walk forward, etc. There are a million threads in the steam forums complaining about this and there isn't really any fix that I know of.

 

Hmmmm. Are there any mods or overhauls that can make MCU actually worthwhile?

I remember someone posting  a patch to add some missing content on the steam forums, but thats it. I really wish someone would make a patch to fix all the problems :(

 

If you are going to play this for single-player, its probably worth $15. But in my experience from playing these games alot from back in the day (X-men legends 1+2 on PS2 and MUA 1 on 360) its not really fun playing alone. I would recommend getting it on consoles (PS4/XBOXONE) where couch coop works.

Is Serious Sam Bogus Detour 85% off by mistake? on humble bundle?

way too new

 

Edit: I bet they did 85% off franchise-wide on Serious Sam, and forgot Bogus Detour shouldn't be

Thanks! This actually looks really fun.
