I reached the saturation point of Into the Breach after 10 hours. The negatives are piling up more for me.

 

The amount of mission types seems pretty low, and I guess since I did pretty good in one of my last runs that now even for early islands, I have tougher and varied aliens to contend with. This is OK, but a big problem is you start with the same plain jane mechs all the time. Why is there no even incremental improvements to the mechs game after game? It's sad that you appreciate the starting team more because every mech can attack. Some of the mechs for teams just are not very strong, such as the grapple one. Also only getting exp for killing enemies makes pilots in support vehicles pretty hard to level up. Why no exp for shielding or healing or anything not murdering something?

 

All in all, it's still a good game, but is feeling samey and the start is usually always the same. Downgrading to 7/10.

sound like a downgrade from the all time classic FTL.  Man, I could play that game for years

I didn’t even realize you could play without. I remember it as being one of the most disturbing experiences I ever had in VR.

As such, I highly recommend it. ;)

Resident Evil 7 VR was the most disturbing experience I've had in VR.  Don't play that game and expect a good night sleep

Of the three, Flower was definitely my favorite. They're purposefully slow, meditative games, so keep that in mind. Journey was good enough for a single playthrough, but I never went back to clean up the trophies. Flow is just plain weird. If you're a fan of those type of arty, "flowing" games, I also recommend Abzû (not currently on sale) and Bound, which I also enjoyed quite a bit.

Thank you so much.  I didn't even know Bound exists and it's also VR compatible.  Bought Journey Collector Edition and Bound, based on your recommendation.  I love these arty, flowing games

If you don't have anything nice to bundle, don't bundle at all.

I use my wishlist as a way to combat my game hoarding/backlog building habit.  I just mentally tell myself that "Yup, bought it, it's on the list" and so far it works well.  Now, if I can figure out how to resist bundle junk from IG and Groupees

Looking to pick up a cheap (and I stress CHEAP) laptop to take to and from work (all that requires is Word and the interwebz) that can play some casual/older games.  Any thoughts on: https://www.amazon.c.../dp/B075WDDXTH/

 

Or any suggestions in the $400ish range other than that?  Not really interested in spending $700+ for a more modern laptop as I really don't game on them.

just grab a cheapo chromebook or any Android tablet with a detachable keyboard.

So I'm sure pretty much everybody has these, but if you like stealth games an somehow haven't played any of the Thief series, Thief Gold and Thief: The Metal Age are 97 cents each and Thief: Deadly Shadows is 98 cents. I actually just started playing Deadly Shadows today, so I'm not sure how good it is, but Thief 1/2 are some of the best and most influential stealth games of all time. They came out in the late 90s, so yeah, graphics are a bit out of date, but it's not a hindrance to enjoying the games imo, and the gameplay more than holds up. 

 

So yeah, if you don't have those, then buy them, if you do have them but haven't played them and like stealth at all then try them out.

Thief WAS a great series for its time but the series aged terribly.  I would say try Dishonored.  It's basically the better Thief spiritual successor

The fact that you have to buy 'insurance' to make sure the key you get works should be enough to stay away.

Can it be said for Squaretrade and all the Ebay junks then?

I’ll sell my hybrid cooled 1080 right when 1100 come out.

but yours is still top of the line though.  Historically, Nvidia's next gen is usually 15-25% faster than current gen.  They don't want to bump too much performance because milking us incrementally =  more $$

It seems like its been years since AMD really had a card worth owning... and there hasn't been a crypto market going on.  Who knows what sort of prices NVIDIA will do when faced with real competition.

There is no such thing as NVIDIA competition.  ATI has been slacking in both software support/compatibility and hardware performance for years.  I feel like AMD didn't really care much about competing and is perfectly happy with being 2nd place.

 

I jumped ship to NVIDIA and didn't bother to look back.  I don't mind paying higher price for higher quality stuff.
