Alice: Madness Returns has been delisted for sale from Steam again, at the publisher's request (EA):

The Last of Us Part 1 is coming to PC and PS5:

PS5 version is coming 9/2/22, and the PC version is coming later.

So the difference is just that they make Ellie look like she's in her late 30's instead of 14?

You can get a free copy of Endless Space 2 by signing up for the newsletter and linking your Steam account

Anyone actually get this? My account is still showing "0/0 Rewards" and it's making me nervous I try to avoid dividing by zero.

Price-matched Doom Eternal at Best Buy. Got the steelbook, now what do I do with it?

Reading this thread is hilarious. Game preservation has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with backwards compatibility or emulation or letting people log into deprecated stores or download their old purchases or anything consumer-oriented whatsoever.

 

If you don't know what a term means, it doesn't take long to look it up instead of running wild with baseless speculation.

Sweet, only $15 for games that people would bitch about being not worth claiming on giveaway.

I don't like these "social" aspects of the site so I don't really interact with them, but I went ahead and dropped you a vote on your profile since you seem to place some value on it.

I clicked on the first star, is that correct?

Claims not to care about social media aspects of the forum.

 

Carefully crafts joke into post to maximize likes.

That guy got banned? I noticed that two of my last five profile visits were from him within the last week. So clearly his jimmies were rustled... for some reason lol

He's on your friends list, maybe he's just checking in on a friend :).

 

I sport a proud 1-star rating on my CAG profile that I'm sure is from him and possibly a few others. We sure are a happy family here!

True the steamdeck isn't out yet for regular consumers and if it's anything like regular steam will probably require some hoops to jump through.  But given that this is a handheld console with a fixed system vs computers having varying parts it should be better optimized to run games they are testing on it in theory. And mostly it'll be cheaper than buying parts or a computer right now and sounds to be the best bang for your buck. Especially if you are using gamestop trade credit to pay off your preorder like a lot of people seem to be doing. 

 

As far as running on a potato goes that depends widely on the potato and game but yeah many games can run on a 11 year old lap top (may or may not have personal experience with tales of zestiria) So I agree that if it doesn't bother them then go for it. It's also hard to recommend building or buying much of anything right now given the inflated prices, scarcity an such. 

Yeah, I haven't had to buy a new gaming computer since I got that stunning hardware success known as the Steam Box, these days I stream my games from my Steam Box to my Steam Link in blissful, problem-free, reliable, and long-term-supported Valve hardware nirvana.

I grabbed the Brain Tickler Bundle for Lumines Remastered.  If I want to build a PC, I'll build one.

I can't imagine anyone bought it for the games that were actually in the $10 tier, yet the BTA is at $9.51.

 

All these motherfuckers must have bought the BTA at the price Humble set it initially. People don't get it: if the BTA tier is the best tier, everyone needs to buy the $1 tier first, drag down the average, and then upgrade to the BTA.

In other "Humble are the absolute worst" news: games you own in your Humble "Library" CANNOT be downloaded through the new Humble App. You need to be an "active Choice member" to download anything with the app, even things you OWN.

Gotta say, this month is a tough one to skip.

 

As in, they've literally made it more difficult to skip. No more option on the main bundle page, now you have to go through your account settings to do it.

They must be doing A-B testing with this because it's been that way for me for a while.

I will say thank you on behalf of the lurker who beat me to Rogue Heroes.

If by lurker you mean: anyone with Google or Bing.

I would definitely not have thought Destiny to be a $3.6 billion IP.

Who would have thought expatriating all of our industrial capacity could have any downsides?
