#14101656 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

Posted by warreni on 11 December 2018 - 04:44 AM

Speaking of Mega Man Legacy Collection, I've spent the last 2+ days playing all six games in the set. I'm roughly halfway through VI, but barring a complete late-game catastrophe, I'm confident enough to rank them as follows:

 

1: 2

2: 3

3: 6

4: 1

5: 4

6: 5

Ooh, I know. . . 7: 8 

 

Did I get it right?

 

 

I hope you were paying attention, Duke--that's how you troll!

Why did you buy a colon, don't you already have one?

 

Cylons don't have those parts.

 

KOTOR1/2 were on Xbox as well. So they're not really "CRPGs."

 

I think it's allowed. Did you actually try playing one of those on an Xbox? The controller interface was a hot mess, to put it politely. Some things are not meant to be played using a controller.

Man, I thought I had a lot of free time on weekends.

The Outer Worlds announced by Obsidian.

 

Already up for pre-order on Steam and has a Steam-page, but the trailer is there:

 

Looks like a sci-fi open-world/choice-driven RPG/shooter set out in space.

Looks like a mix of Fallout: New Vegas, RAGE, and Borderlands.

 

 

 

I watched the trailer this morning on Steam. It looks great. 

 

On a side note, I've been buying blind-bag LEGO Harry Potter minifigs for the last few months. I give my duplicates to my mom or toss them in a bucket in the closet (the other week I picked up two at my usual Target and they turned out to be my third and fourth Filius Flitwicks  [yes, you don't know that name unless you're one of those people who read all of the books]--they went straight into the bucket). I grabbed a few at an out-of-town Wal-Mart yesterday, and one turned out to be the Professor Moody-Barty Crouch Jr. character. It comes with Barty on one side of the head and Moody on the other (with eyepatch), his polyjuice potion and two different hairpieces. The significance of this is that the former is the Harry Potter movie universe character played by David Tennant. The LEGO version even has his tongue stuck out in a nod to that character's propensity for a serpent-like flicking of his tongue. My wife loved David Tennant, so I naturally had to assemble him that way.

I can't decide which nickname I like better, White50Cent or grey dude on Youtube. They're both pretty great.

I've gotten too active in various pinball groups to have the patience to wait for bundles. Amazing what actually playing games does to one's perception of acceptable sale discounts.

I would assume by that you mean it distorts said perception beyond all recognition? Why do you think we don't play games?!

I'm pretty sure people around here only pre-order collector's editions for weeabo sex pillow stuff. 

You should update your avatar to say, "It's not Fallout: NV." Fallout 3 was kinda crap. 

 

Also. . . tell me more.

I went to Freddy's yesterday because CAGs told me to.

Spoiler

 

This has been another installment of Warren's Restaurant Reviews. This is  Yelp!, right? DId I mix up my site logins again? Um, also, I played a game yesterday. There.

I had to look up midrats, but it sounds like a lot has changed since you were in the Navy:
[Navy rations story]

 

GIving a sailor an extra sausage biscuit and cup of coffee sounds great, but it won't ameliorate the fact that he didn't sleep for two days

 

 

I’ve seen SFM porn of FNAF, so why not?

 

Your view is equivalent to having vanilla sex with your wife, and I'm telling you it's better when you're double dipping her friend in the basement pillory while she watches.

Wow, I thought I knew some perverts outside of this site. . . . 

 

What is one supposed to do with two ounces of sugar and four ounces of bread and meat?

Well, if you ask one of these loons, he'll tell you, "Put it on a pizza or a hamburger." 

 

I mean, you saw that coming, right?

Kind of like how you'd tell your friends if you banged a model but won't tell them about plowing out a hooker on meth.

 

Sometime I'll make a graphic comparing burger quality between tiers of restaurants to better explain the concept.

I'd kinda prefer to see a graphic comparing the quality of models and hookers that you're plowing--as a metaphor for the quality of hamburgers. 

 

I like the Peach Mello Yello.

Yes, but the Cherry is good too. 

 

 

Once you get to pizza slice and mac and cheese buns you're not even eating burgers any more.  You're that guy who's desensitized himself to regular porn and has to watch smurf tentacle pubg stepsister porn parodies in the hopes that something will make your limp dick come alive again.  

Probably the kind of guy who would watch a movie called, "Cherry is Good II," and not feel a thing. Poor S.O.B.

Whataburger.

I think that should be "What? A burger?!?" 

 

No, seriously, I think these guys are profoundly overrated. I've eaten there a few times, and it's not any better than your Burger King/McDonald's fare. 

 

 

You guys should try Freddy's.

 

Had a good ole Kickin Chicken from Zaxby's yesterday.

I've heard not-good things about Freddy's.

 

I am a fan of Zaxby's. The Cajun Club is a good sandwich, the fries are well-seasoned, and the Wimpy sauce makes a good dipping sauce for them. Also, they carry Mellow Yellow Zero and Pibb Xtra in their drink machines. That's hard to find. 

 

 

Smash Burger was probably the worst experience I've ever had.   It basically tasted like McDonald's. 

 

I walked by a Wahlburger's at the Mall of America last week.   That place any good?

I have also heard not-good things about Smashburger. 

 

No Wahlburger's in my area--too far south for it. 

 

I always thought Steak n Shake made the best burgers but I haven't had one in awhile so maybe they aren't what I remember. Not sure if there are any near you, think I remember some being around Chicago but not sure how far west they are.

I like the odd Steak'n'Shake, but I figured people go there mostly for the shakes.

Also, you guys are delusional about your pricing. 

 

Last time I got a combo at burger king it was like $10.  

 

For $10 at Five Guys you get fresh ingredients, made to order, unlimited toppings, fresh fries cut that day, unlimited peanuts.  Not sure what you expect for $10.  

Not sure what you're getting at Five Guys for $10, but I paid way more than that when I went, something on the order of $28 for two people. That's sit-down restaurant money to me. 

 

How do you guys feel about chicken on pizza?  This Chipotle Chicken Pizza is almost done cooking.  Smells pretty good.  After I finish this I just have one hawaiian red baron left from the Kroger $2 deal.  

I'll allow it.

 

I actually eat chicken on store-bought pizzas on a semi-regular basis, DiGiorno's maybe?

I upgraded CPU, RAM, and mobo recently.  As previously mentioned, first link an MS account to the PC as described.  Upgrade.  Boot up and hope for the best.  My windows did not activate via the troubleshooter (although I could still log in), but a call to M$ support and they told me to use my original 8.1 key.  Once I did this, it activated right away.  I think it will be the same for you.

 

 

I had nothing but problems last time I had to swap SSDs.  I cloned it and put it in and it would not activate despite the fact I had logged into my account and tied the activation to my account.  The WIndows 10 activation wizard didn't do jack and I finally had to resort to letting some CSR remotely activate it on my computer.  I could tell he was just calling the hotline getting the number codes or whatever, but it worked.  I anticipate the same issues this time as I am upgrading to a bigger SSD.  Maybe I'll just buy a $10 copy to avoid the hassle.  God knows I haven't paid for a copy of windows in like 15 years.  

 

I had a lot of problems with this when I built my new computer last year. I ended up having to go to a shady key site for a new OEM Windows 10 key. The problem was that I too had done a Windows 10 upgrade from Windows 8 on my old system, so after a few calls to Microsoft, I figured out that I couldn't run 10 on my new computer. I actually like 10 a lot, so I was pretty annoyed about that, and I ended up getting a key from sketchycodes.org because I didn't have any interest in reverting to 8.1.

It'll be bad whatever day it starts.

 

Also, seems like solid state drives are dipping in price after a few years of dubious pricepoints. Any reason why I shouldn't just get a 500 GB to 1 TB SSD and not even bother with a standard/mechanical drive?

The 1s have been on sale lately, but 500Gb - 1Tb is a little small for my personal tastes. If I were you, I'd do a hybrid setup: grab a 500Gb for your boot drive and a conventional drive of at least 2-3Tb for data storage.
