Went to SteamDB and logged in. I checked my Steam wishlist and found three or four games that had hit an all-time low and bought those. In case there's anyone out there that hasn't used it, It's a good tool to use.

 

I've got a couple of pages of wishilsted games that have matched their all-time low that I will consider. Most of them are that same price each and every time they are discounted, but I might pick up a few of those that I may want to play soon-ish.

 

I know it's a tired sentiment, but man I miss the days when the first ten minutes of the Winter Sale would mean a dozen pages in this thread. Glitches made it exciting. Frequent price drops made it exciting. What it has turned into is the complete opposite of exciting. Sorry, but new backgrounds and avatar frames just don't get me going.

PSA: While you are all enjoying Christmas day in your jammies.... Humble Bundle will be auto-charging you for their monthly (no) Choice bundle.

 

Yes, Christmas day is the last Friday of the month. The Grinch is coming.

The biggest reason I don't care about Ubi removing PC achievements is that I generally just acquire their games and then never play them.

 

The reason that I do care is: Fuck you Ubi for being lazy fucks and cutting corners on the PC version. I mean, isn't that kind of a dick move? Ubi just seems like one of those companies that keeps moving in the wrong direction.

 

I like achievements in some games. I don't give a flying Fuck about getting every achievement in a game that requires grinding. I'm not interested in being a digital puppet. I do like to achievement hunt in the LEGO games for some reason. I also like the fun ones that pop up when you do something silly.

Ugh, noticed Borderlands 3 has a Season Pass 2 ... I hate that trend. Same damn thing with Mortal Kombat releasing a definitive edition and then a few months later, there's yet another DLC season. Maybe I'm old, but I really hate the "Seasons" model.

I will say this: the first season was worth it. At least two of the four story DLC I would categorize as very good to great. Lots of playtime.

 

The second is adding new skill trees to each vault hunter, a new gametype and something else. I can't say that I'm totally sold on the value there. I will wait and see.

 

I like fully fleshed games getting additional worthwhile content. It lets you decide whether or not you are interested and want to continue to support the game. In the brick and mortar days we had expansions, which is pretty much the same thing.

I wish CAG would, too, I don’t see how any of this has anything to do with pizza.

Bought Spelunky 2 earlier today. Put in about three hours so far. Maybe it's just because I'm not accustomed to all the new enemies and traps yet but it's been noticeably more difficult than the original. I really missed this slow, rewarding sense of progression that I got from the first game. There's so many new mechanics that it's almost like learning how to play all over again. I love it.

Best speedrun for Spelunky 2 is three minutes long.

So, does this mean Zenimax has to ditch Bethesda-Launcher and fold all of their games now into Xbox for PC App?

You know as well as I do that Microsoft is going to do two things: make a move that allows them to say "Hey we are totally cool, man." And then something incredibly inefficient and stupid.

 

Which means... allow the Bethesda launcher and XBox for PC to co-exist in mediocrity. Neglect them both. And then abandon them, broken, and create something even worse.

That's some asshole game design right there.

I'll get things back on track here.

Until today, I always said, "I'll eat any kind of pizza."

 

I stand corrected.

I'm gonna be honest. No one cares what you or anyone else think about the gpu pricing. This isn't the place to voice your feelings. Arguing here won't accomplish anything. We come here for pizza pics and deals.

 

I'm down for pizza and deals, but I'm all for hearing opinions on stuff like GPU pricing too. Otherwise, this wouldn't really be a discussion thread. When I don't care about a particular topic, I roll my mouse wheel just a little bit and it goes away.

 

 

and shoes! Remember shoes? People don't talk about shoes any more. Once this glorious thread was filled with tremendous shoe related discussion. MAKE SHOE TALK GREAT AGAIN!!!

For example, shoe talk. Would totally scroll past that. More burger talk, yes.
