WWE 2K17 has a Free Trial Version on Humble Bundle:

https://www.humblebu.../store/wwe-2k17

 

From what Reddit's saying, it is not a Steam-version.

 

I wonder if you can import saves + characters from Non-Steam version to the Steam-version at a later said date.

Well, the PC variants of those games I mentioned are similar in gameplay beyond the control input. Although, when you can try something out for free why not, right? I played the Betas of both For Honor and Wildlands on PC and wanted to dig deeper into more content. GF seemed like an easy option, even if through a console.

 

I've been playing some ME:A and Titanfall 2 on PC to mix things up. I still have my trial month of Origin Access running for a few more weeks so I downloaded Unravel and Mirror's Edge Catalyst to try out. I haven't played much on Steam lately, but I still need to get to DOOM and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided at some point. Too many games.

Doom 2016 is awesome on SP; and the MP is good and solid stuff (especially since FFA DM is back in).

 

Deus Ex: MD just needs...DLC to finish up the damn story + hanging plot-lines, since too much sets up a sequel we likely won't unfortunately see b/c of "meh" sales. DE: MD was really good, despite feeling incomplete and underwhelming at the end.

Speaking of, Bah lamely tried to defend his Wildlands purchase last night by pretending it was awesome despite it being boring drek during the beta.  I guess Ubisoft coded fun into the game in the intervening two weeks. [-(

Oh, c'mon - Wildlands Open Beta felt like UbiSoft open-world game with optional online gameplay + MMO-type of missions (kill everything + collect stuff).

 

I think the problem is too many games are now doing the open-world UbiSoft collect-a-thon and kill everything format; even non-Ubi games.

 

Widllands' biggest problem for me from Open Beta is...it doesn't really do much new, despite ambitiously cobbling tons of different game types + styles together. It's good - but not great.

Sure, but unlike most here I do love some good console action on the side. In fact I just completed my free month of GameFly and knocked off a few games I wanted to try out, but not buy new or at all. I finished up NieR: Automata's three playthroughs (Great game), and tried For Honor and Ghost Recon Wildlands (I didn't really like either of those).

 

As for religion & politics? Yeah, I'm staying the Fuck away from any of those discussions on a public forum of diverse opinion. I mean, really? I could better spend (or waste) my time playing more console games. 

 

 

...but my FREE month of GameFly is now gone. Sad face.

But, what about some talk of PC versions of games? ;)

I'm putting everyone in this thread on ignore so I can live in my safe echo chamber of mediocre deals on Sims 4 expansions.

You forgot the Mafia 3 deal on WinGameStore at 75% off that I posted yesterday.

 

EDIT:

Mafia 3 - really digging the game + story, despite console-like performance (25-30fps with 30fps cap on) here at 1440p.

re: Bronight

 

Drawful 2 has some new features that I think were worth the bundle split to get it.  You can make your own prompts, which we tried but did it wrong since ideally those who make it aren't the same people who play the game.  There was also a gallery feature after the game where you could revisit those awful drawings we all made.  They added two colors to give you some contrast.  Sadly, Jimbo got stuck with a combination of brown poo and yellow poo that made his drawings automatically unappealing.  I'll have to look into what's in Jackbox Party Pack 3 to see if it's worth an addition to the rotation on sale (I've sold like 400 cards since last week so now I can get it for $1 cheaper).  PissPiss kept mentioning there was some sort of haunted game mode he wanted to try out.  It was Georgebutt's first time playing and I think he was pleasantly surprised.  We forgot to invite MysterD, but he kept playing Titanfall 2, but next time remind me to shoot him an invite in case he wants to show off his drawing skills.  I've also potentially figured out how to eliminate the sound issue but I'll test it out next time.  

I don't have any of the newer Jackbox stuff.

The Last YDKJ game I have was YDKJ 2011.

 

So, even if you did send me an invite - I'd still have to go buy all that stuff first.

 

Anyways, still had fun w/ Titanfall 2 MP. Glad to have joined last night's TFall 2 MP Bro Night.

Mafia 3 PC [Steam key] = 75% off at WinGameStore:

http://www.wingamest...hWord=mafia III

 

Mafia 3 (base-game) = $14.99

Mafia 3: Digital Deluxe Edition (Mafia 3 base-game + Season Pass) = $19.99

 

Use can try to use "PCGAMES5OFF" for an extra 5%; not sure if that code'll work for everyone.

 

EDIT:

Looks like ITAD says this is the best price on this so far:

https://isthereanyde...aldeluxeedition

 

Really don't know if we're going to see a much better price than this, anytime soon.

This game shot down to 75% off really fast - just like Homefront: The Rev did.

 

EDIT 2:

And...finished the Demo.

And...bought Digital Deluxe on this.

5% off code worked too, since I ain't never bought from them.

I may need to try using KB+M with the shooty bits; using a controller with aim-assist disabled was difficult.

Yeah, definitely use KB+mouse for the shooty-stuff. It's fine at that stuff, for a cover shooter + stealth hybrid type of game.

On-the-fly, I basically switch to the controller to drive the vehicles.

Frankly, as I understand it there's no need for a port...  Your character isn't going to carry over and the story is non existent.

Yes, there is - that's the "Completionist syndrome" in me.

I want ALL of the Destiny stuff on PC. :P

Well, since you didn't ask, it's a 29Gb download. 

 

Since you did ask, not great. I spent about an hour and a half playing tonight. On high settings, I experienced a fair bit of stuttering. Even at 30 fps cap, my computer's native resolution, and low settings, it felt a bit like the protagonist was walking through molasses. It's playable, but you can tell my hardware's not really up to snuff. Or possibly it's poorly optimized, although I don't remember reading that anywhere. This is the work laptop that ran Shadow of Mordor at medium-high settings. 

 

The story is interesting so far. Orphan boy Lincoln Clay grows up in a rough neighborhood in faux-New Orleans, decides to volunteer for the Vietnam War and comes home five years later to find his family in trouble. The '60s soundtrack playing while you drive around town is sublime. The shooting's a bit tricky and the driving controls themselves aren't the greatest, but I'm enjoying it overall. 

I decided to check Mafia 3 Demo out for a bit tonight, also. 

 

You ain't kidding; performance in this game is terrible. I had to look it down to 30 FPS at 1440p here just to keep performance stable, so it ain't bouncing around b/t 30FPS and 60 FPS. Basically, this runs very similar for me to other games like Batman: Arkham Knight + Homefront: The Revolution - which means, it runs like ass when it's not locked down at 30FPS.

 

I'm running a GTX 970, i7 950 Bloomfield, 16 GB RAM DDR3, W7 64-bit OS here - and this game's just horribly un-optimized. Unfortunately, for those settings - unlike those other games, this game doesn't even look that great for the performance it's getting. At least technically, Batman: AK + Homefront: TR looked really good - despite running like ass. This game might ooze personality b/c of its style, but that's all artistic from it being set in their version of New Orleans. Even at other resolutions, i.e. 1200p + 1080p, this game still ran pretty poorly The game defaulted to 60FPS at 900p, looked pretty "ewwwww" at that res on this monitor (2160p / 4K).

 

Story + character development is excellent here. I'm really digging this stuff. I really love the music, the settings, the atmosphere, and all of that stuff - it's extremely well put together + presented quite well.  

 

Combat is fine; it's playable with 30FPS cap, but nothing super-special. This game's combat doesn't feel over-the-top, it feels very grounded - i.e. similar to GTA4 base-game, in that regard. So, combat's different here - b/c it seems to have a heavy reliance on being a 3rd person cover-shooter + it has stealth elements. It kind of reminds me of a cross b/t both GTA4 + Watch Dogs (open-world 3rd person action game w/ vehicles & cover shooter elements + feels very grounded & realistic for its combat); and Hitman + Splinter Cell games (i.e. you can and sneak up on enemies to get the drop to knock 'em out, drag bodies & dumpy bodies).  

 

EDIT:

 

the game looks like fucking garbage, very dated textures, mostly terrible optimization

 

buried underneath the muck is an interesting story, but it annoyed me so much I uninstalled it before getting even 30% into it and wont touch it til they fix it (if ever). There may have been some improvements since then (I got it via the Humble glitch), but I havent paid attention.

 

It pissed me the  Fuck off. They had a solid location and time period to work with.

Curious:

What was the Humble Glitch on Mafia 3 PC that I missed out on?

"Yay" @ Destiny 2 coming to PC.

BTW, where's that Destiny 1 PC port?
