OVERPOWERED Laptop 17.3 IPS 144Hz Display, i7-8750H, NVIDIA GTX1060, Mechanical LED Keyboard, 256 SSD + 2TB HDD, 32GB RAM (Best deal I could find at the time without having to upgrade anything before the trip)
Oh, snap! Wait! Is that the laptop that's been on sale for $1000 at WalMart's before?

As of last nite, I'm about 3 hours into Vampyr.
And I like it. A LOT.
This possibly has "cult classic" written all over it.
So far - the writing; story; characters; dialogue; music; and game-world of 1800's London are great. Hope it keeps this up, as it's one of the better ones on this stuff, so far, that I've seen in quite some time.
Graphics quality on the technical side (even though it's on Unreal Engine) and the combat aren't spectacular, but they're still good and solid. Combat's fine, but - well, at least so far - aren't as deep as Witcher 3 and Dark Souls. They all (the graphics and combat) do get the job done though.
More to come, when I get more time & game behind me.

With a little help from a certain toaster... :p
Yup, I bought games from the Epic Games Store. Yep, I like cheap games and have tough times resisting good sales. And yep, most of those are currently exclusive to the Epic Game Store.
I don't like Epic that much and Microsoft w/ their game-store & service (or lack thereof) - but for certain games (especially exclusives) and/or certain deals, I'm gonna have to go there. [shrug]
And yep, at one-time, before Steam became feature-rich and felt like it mostly a DRM-laced service - yep, wasn't fond of Steam too. Yet, I still bought Steam-required games like HL2 & Dark Messiah, back then. And yet, here I am, some 2000+ Steam-games later.
Just finished-up TWD: A New Frontier from Epic Store. Took around 8 hours total, according to GamePlay Time Tracker. Yeah, it was good and more action-y than the last bunch of TellTale "adventures" - but it still ain't as great as TWD: S1 & S2; and also especially The Wolf Among Us.
I don't think those who aren't TellTale fans, those tired of TellTale's formula, and/or those who are looking for TellTale to have changed their style much (before they folded) will be converted b/c of this game though. It's more of the same.

The devs on EGS are just as bad if not worse than the store itself if they are pulling their games when things don't go their way. There are no principles at play. I'd respect them more if they released statements like "We sell on EGS because it's more profitable". I don't blame anyone for wanting to make more money. Instead it's bs corporate-speak; they don't actually stand for anything. Disingenuous press releases make people lose respect for you.
They only stand for one thing: wanting & making more money.

I think the biggest issues were that it was possible dev's/publishers weren't aware this sale was coming; and that the reduced price was actually showing up on ITAD and other sites like it b/c the discount was showing before it hit check-out so ITAD could record that before-cart price.
I mean, would you buy Heavy Rain if you checked ITAD elsewhere at a higher price, when it showed as its low was $10?
I would've bought Hades at $7, if I ordered it in time. It changed before I got around to it. Oh well.
And I know, I ain't buying Hades likely until it hits $7 again or less.

Have the Witcher keys on Humble always been GOG only? Am I going crazy?
I don't think CDPR games on 3rd party sites (like Amazon, Humble, etc) were ever keys for Steam.
I think they were normally always keys for GOG (once GOG existed).
If you bought CDPR's games at retail, the CD keys always activated-up on GOG (once GOG was up - that's how I got Witcher 1 from retail to GOG).
I think to buy CDPR's games from Steam, you always had to buy them directly through Steam.
Come to think of it, I don't recall back in the Amazon DVG days, if Tony pulled strings to get Steam-versions of their games (i.e. Witcher games). Anyone remember?
I dunno how he pulled that off w/ UbiSoft and other companies (i.e. I recall he had Steam-versions of some AC titles), but I guess, he had clout and Amazon behind him...so he could.
