I legitimately could not care less about what or if any DRM is being used in games.

Not even that one DRM that steals your GPU cycles to mine bitcoin and then sends the proceeds directly to support child trafficking?  [-(

Just a heads up: The Subnautica download from the Epic Store is DRM-free. You can copy and move the game folder after installation, uninstall the Epic launcher, and still be able to play the game.

2018, when there's about 15 pages of anger and hate .... against the awesome DRM-free store and in support of the industry-killing, loot-box, DRM, monetization pushing monstrosity.

It's almost like some sort of crab-like creature has attached to their heads, sucked out their brains, and turned them into mindless zombie shills. Wait ... Half-Life 3 ... is real-life? Well played, Gabe. You were still making games all along.

LEGO: The Hobbit FREE on Humble Bundle for 48 hours.

Don't forget the Humble key has a redemption deadline. Pretty much any time I get a free game on Humble with a redemption deadline, and I don't redeem it immediately, I end up forgetting about it and losing the key.

Fanatical is doing Mystery Bundles. Who's gambling?

I wouldn't call this gambling. When you gamble, there's usually a possibility (often remote, I'll grant you that, but a possibility) that you could win.

My Sansa Clip's battery died around the same time everyone stopped making good MP3 players and they started going for $80 on eBay.

Seriously though can't we all just get along. I have Google Play Music for streaming, Records for my turnables, CDs that rip to FLAC or MP3 or buy (yes people still buy music) for those guys above and use it all.

 

I have a Raspberry Pi for unspoken gaming/asf farming, NES classic and NES knockoff with games, Switch, Xbone X and PS4 Pro, N2DSXL, Arcade Cabinet and my custom built PC.

 

Steam, Origin, Blizz, Uplay, Windows Store and GOG (only free games though) and will buy and pay/play anywhere the games are cheaper or take me.

Never heard of asf before, any comments? How much do you make? 

Yeah, Steam is great and convenient, but I absolutely love some amount of competition between different platforms, just means more free games for me. I can hand in my fakeybro card for saying I like Twitch, but the monthly free games on Twitch Prime have been better than the last two years of Humble. Super stoked for Subnautica free later this week on Epic, since I haven't played it at all yet. It's been on my buy list for a while.

With all the different clients, my ever-growing backlog is now being flooded just with more and more free games that I'm actually genuinely excited about and interested in, on top of tons of support and content for the main titles I've been playing for years. And that's not even including PS Plus titles on my PS4.

I still can't believe that Destiny 2: Forsaken Legendary Collection is $24.99 on all platforms now.  Congratulations to everybody who paid $59.99 just 90 days ago when it released.  Thanks Activision!

That feeling when you buy something, then it goes free to play under a monetization model where you are still pestered to keep buying to unlock content as if you were no better than a free to play player from the beginning. 

 

This is why I don't buy any games from major publishers anymore.

Anyone point out yet that the 12 month sub is on sale for $99? 

Foreshadowing of continued lower-quality to come? Maybe. But also 30% off is nice.

I've been noticing way more pre-order deals being placed front-and-center on all these sites. It looks like the days of PC gaming being immune to the economics of console gaming were short numbered.

Just when we were all doubting you, Humble, no wonder it took you a whole month to put together such an incredible selection of primo titles.
