Well, at least we can learn to use crystals to heal our disappointment from the last several bundles, now.

Humble Books Bundle Treat Yourself

[checks thread again]

I could've swore I clicked on the Groupees thread, seeing bundles like that being released...

 

What the hell is happening to you, Humble?

Been playing some Dead Rising 1 PC today. I'm having a lot of fun here - just running around this big mall; picking up pretty much "anything & everything"; and just beating the hell out of zombies with "anything & everything" (i.e. knives, potted plants, lawn mowers, broomsticks, chairs, benches, etc etc).

 

Sure, I'm doing side-quests & main quests too, as I'm under the gun of the infamous DR time-limit - but you're here to pulverize zombies.

 

Fun stuff.

Humble Monthly January 2018  :-

B/c MEA was such a flop, maybe it'll wind up in the $1 tier like how Dead Space 3 ended up.

 

While Dead Space 3 was good - yeah, it ain't on the level of greatness of Dead Space 1+2.

 

Same goes for Mass Effect Andromeda, when compared to ME1-3...IMHO. I think MEA is good, but its story & character stuff ain't on ME1-3's level. It also can take a while for this stuff to actually develop, too - so at least the exploration & gunplay's great & addictive here.

Just a heads up to all...  MS released an update for Windows 10 that fucked up the frame rates in Forza Motorsports: Apex...  Suppose to be fixed in the fall update.

 

I don't think anyone else is a big Forza fan so its likely just me who has to assume this is going to Fuck up Forza 7 when it comes out in a few weeks...  Anyone, one the fence I would certainly considering hold off till there is a fix.

 

I'm not sure how MS would even consider the windows store becoming a major player in PC gaming when OS updates can Fuck up games...  I cannot think of a single game on Steam, Origins, or uplay that gets messed up by patching an OS. 

Does this have to do W10's new Game Mode?

Can't you just turn Game Mode on and off in the Windows Settings?

 

Or is this issue something else entirely w/ Forza?

 

EDIT:

 

Bing points? Is that like Xbox live points they used to do?

All in serious I would had used Bing more just to get it free

Hop onto Bing and sign into your Microsoft Outlook e-mail account / XBox account or whatever. Then while signed-in - do searches on Bing, do Bing quizzes, and other Bing activities to generate Bing points. The activities often change daily, weekly, and monthly.

 

Generate enough Bing points, you can get free stuff - such as $5 Amazon Gift Cards, Jay-Z "4:44" album, GameStop Gift Cards, Microsoft Gift Cards, and other stuff.

That's sort of tempting but I know I won't get through it before I get really busy towards the end of the month.

 

I haven't followed prices but they have the trilogy box edition for 13.99:

https://www.amazon.c...SQPPTJG148&th=1

 

(third party fulfilled by amazon.)

MEA (PC retail box) is down to $15.89 now. :P Seems like the price is doing the Amazon thing of dropping slowly but surely, last few days.

 

I'm some 39 hours into ME: Andromeda and I am having a really good time w/ it b/c of the open-world exploration, tons of quests to do, gameplay and gunplay. Best combat in a ME game, no doubt about it - keeping you constantly moving in the fast & furious action. The game's just addictive, as quests and quest-givers are everywhere and around every corner. Story and character development is nowhere on the level of the original ME Trilogy - even though stuff feels like it's finally assembling to something, since I've gotten off Eos (the first planet in the game).

 

No, ME:A ain't as nowhere as great as the original ME1-3 Trilogy (namely in the story & character development department) overall - but, there's still something about MEA (i.e. gameplay and gunplay) that is compelling me to keep going even despite my complaints w/ it, just like with DA2.

 

ME Trilogy (includes ME1-3) has been around $9 before digitally, according to ITAD - https://isthereanyde...sseffecttrilogy

 

Also, keep in mind - ME2 has been free On The House on Origin before and has been bundled before - https://isthereanyde...in=masseffectii

ME1 has been around $4 before - https://isthereanyde...lain=masseffect

ME3 has been around $5 before - https://isthereanyde...n=masseffectiii

 

If you haven't played ME Trilogy, I very highly recommend it. The series is great, despite some minor hiccups along the way - i.e. ME1's combat relies too much on dice-rolls + stats (like many shooter/RPG combos before and during that time period), despite though the story & character stuff being great (real reason to play the game). ME2 removed a lot of RPG stats & stuff, but this one is easily the best game in the franchise b/c of major combat improvements and fantastic quests; and especially the final mission in the base-game. ME3 felt like a mix of the great stuff from ME1 (some RPG elements returned), ME2 (the great combat and quests trend continues here), and some tweaks to the gameplay & combat (i.e. you can do a combat dodge-roll move now) - even despite the base-game's ending being horrible.

$6.59 for DR1 and RE4? 

Anyone knows if the RE4 is the newer version and not the old broken orignal window's version?

Old RE4 is only found at retail.

That's not on Steam.

 

RE4 on Steam is the new RE4 HD Steam-version.

like u r gonna brodate Destiny 2?

Not until 2025.

 

EDIT:

^that's EA for u.  Shits don't make sense...

That's great for the 5 people that bought SW Battlefront 1 base-game early and were hoping the Season Pass went free later.

This seems to happen a lot for DICE's titles, BTW - BF4, BF: Hardline, and now SW: Battlefront.

Destiny 2? Isn't that a console game?

It's a console-game...until the real version (PC version) comes out on October 24th, 1 day before The Toaster's Birthday.

thanks mysterd. we lost power for a day, just came back up. and we lost a tree in our backyard. other that, we're okay, much better than what some people got. keep those people in mind...

Glad you're doing okay and that you got power back. Glad to hear that.

 

Best wishes and prayers to everyone getting slapped by hurricanes, storms, floods, and any other weathered-mess in Florida, Texas, or wherever. Mother Nature needs to like stop. Like now.

 

EDIT:

We're starting to get squalls here in Atlanta. Don't know what that is, but it means the power is going out every now and then. Only for a few seconds at a time, but enough where my plans to game during the storm are nixed. Maybe it's time to seriously look into an UPS.

Hang in there, man. And stay safe.
