Pretty good Origin sale going on. Should I get the base versions of Battlefield 1 and Titanfall 2? Are the dlc worth it?

Side note for those who want to buy from Amazon who have Bing-made Amazon GC $ racked up, they matched some of the Origin store deals...

 

Amazon Deals:

All listed are Origin versions:

Titanfall 2: Standard Edition = $5.

Battlefield 1: Revolution [BF1 base-game & Premium Pass] = $20

Battlefield 1: Premium Pass (only) = $15.

Battlefield 1 (Base-Game Only)= $10.

Mass Effect: Andromeda - Standard Edition = $10

Today is the only day off for me this weekend.  Fallout 4 is the game at this point.  I am caught in a loop of minuteman missions being auto assigned when I turn in.  I have failed a mission with it taking too long while I was exploring other areas.  Good point is the game levels up with you i.e. enemies get tougher and more options unlock to build more / better stuff , base building, connecting your outposts, etc.  I just wish I knew how long I can break away from missions without having them fail.  

I may have to treat this game like Skyrim and come back to it every so often.

After finishing a Preston Garvey quest and it tells you to turn in to him, don't turn in to Garvey...unless you're ready to do another settlement quest.

 

When you turn in to him, you'll wind-up back in Preston Garvey's infinite loop of "Go to this settlement & do something with it" - which could be anything of the following: find settlement, or build settlement, or build defenses on settlement, or defend settlement, or go to settlement to find nearby enemies who causing trouble for settlement, or a combo of these things, etc etc".

Hello CAGgers!
What are the recommended HDDs these days? I think someone mentioned Toshiba at some point? Looking for a good price/performance balance. Is WD Blue any good? Seagate barracuda?

I like the WD Blacks; and both the Toshiba P300 and especially the X300.

I just put in a 4TB X300 recently - it's really freakin' good.

Maybe I'm missing something but I can't find destiny 1 PC anywhere.  You're telling me Destiny 2 is one of them games where I was supposed to play 1 on the console and then SWITCH platforms?  

Unfortunately, yes...

I still want a Destiny 1 Complete Edition PC port, dammit...

Any of you black-hearted bozos know if there is a way to properly connect a non-steam game with its steam version in the steam client?  I've got some uplay/origin games added as non-steam for convenience, but I'd like the client to show the steam info.  I'd really like to be able to review on steam, but even a nicer landing page would be a step up.

Nope. You would need to buy the Steam-version to be able to do so.

 

In the older days: you could add Non-Steam games, take screens of those, and those would actually show screenies on your Activity Feed - while you can still do that and all, the screens for Non-Steam games won't show on your Activity Feed anymore.

 

If you want to review Non-Steam games - you could just Create a Group on Steam and just post reviews there.

honestly if i get 100 hours of enjoyment out of a game i'd be okay with buying it 

Ditto.

But, I dunno if I could get 100 hours out of Destiny 2 (base-game) though.

i just signed up on day 2 of the steam/sega make war not love 5 promo today 2/15/2018. Do I receive the day 1 bundle as well? on the make war site there is just a lock over the day 1 stuff but it says day 1 will unlock in 24 hrs.

 

Fiinally, someone above said he removed a game from his library but got it back with this promo. Is it advantageous to remove certain games from you library to get the bundles or should i just keep everything the way it is?

I'm all about increasing my Steam game-count...so why anyone wants to remove a game - that's beyond me.

You can easily just create a category (or multiple categories) of "Junk Games" and just filter them there.

Dishonored: Definitive is fantastic.

 

It's basically a modern take on Thief 1+2 in many ways. You have more leeway than those Thief games, as you can slaughter everyone and have a lot of fun (especially w/ the crazy superpowers, if you take them) and finish the level doing so - but don't expect the best ending by doing so. You get the best endings normally by basically knocking out or killing only those involved in the main objective and by being as stealthy as possible.

 

Dishonored feels like Thief 1, but it can feel much faster - especially if you take superpowers from The Outsider and especially b/c of the Blink teleport move - with a mix of Steampunk elements with a twist called  Whalepunk (where whales are the main source of energy here, not Steam).

 

You can finish a lot of levels quickly if you just follow the main path - but if you really want to get into the world, characters, back-stories, Lore, and other stuff of that sort - you should take your time: find as much as possible in the game-world and do as much side stuff as possible.  This game has tons of great world-building and character-building - but a lot of that is found by doing as much as you can.

 

Also, the DLC's are awesome and pretty much necessary. Not only are they great and Daud is a really cool character to play as, since he some tweaked-skill and skills of his own - but the DLC's really set-up the events that really set Dishonored 2 on its way in grand fashion.

It's like the next evolution of Borderlands. You still kill enemies for loot and EXP, but the graphics are better and the game is more serious (Bungie instead of Burch). They have cool raid events on each map, and you can choose attachments for your gear instead of them being randomized. They get away with that locking out bullshit because it's a good game.

Borderlands series at least has an offline mode option. That game can be played offline or online.
