Ordered a Logitech Prodigy Gaming Keyboard & Mouse Combo, which includes G403 Mouse & G213 KB, over the weekend (Saturday). It arrived today. Got it all connected and I am installing the Logitech Gaming Software (newest version).

 

What does everybody have and use for Mice and Keyboards these days?

Ask yourself this: How many games in the last five or so years have you played on PC that wasn't also on a console?

Played - The Secret World / Secret World Legends; Torchlight 2; Her Story.

Purchased - StarCraft 2 (base-game) and Heart of the Swarm; Guild Wars 2.

 

EDIT:

WWE 2K18 for pc releasing same day as consoles...

So, did you pull the trigger on Mass Effect Andromeda yet?  I am choosing to wait until $10.  I am still a little disappointed that they decided not to work on single player DLC for this title.  Your comments seem to indicate that it is enjoyable for the "vanilla" version.  Hopefully, there will be another entry in the franchise later.

 

@MysterD: what would be you buy in price for Overwatch?  (just curious)

I bought ME: Andromeda back when it was $20 on Origin, a month ago or so.

 

I'm some 41 hours into the campaign and not anywhere close to being finished with it. There's just so much to do - i.e. think like DA:I. ME:A has DAI's open-world land masses thing going on w/ one-off quests everywhere around every corner. If you don't like the way DAI handled that stuff - chances are, you'll not like how ME:A deals with that either; it's very similar.

 

Combat's great. Fast, furious, and kinetic. You can't sit in cover long, or they try to kill you or get you to move out of cover. They're do their skills, toss grenades, destroy cover, whatever - they won't hesitate to do, if you sit it cover too long. If you want to live here - you can move to another cover, dodge, use your jump-jets to zip around, or whatever. It's a blast, IMHO.

 

It takes a while for the story to go anywhere. And even when it does, it's more plotlines than anything...so, don't expect depth; especially early on. Same goes for most characters, also. You spend so much time on Eos building that planet up, so you spend a lot of time there early on...so this has the DAI Hinterlands issue. Like DAI w/ The Hinterlands, once Eos is built-up enough and you can leave - LEAVE. The game-worlds, hubs, and planets really open-up once you get off Eos. And the main story doesn't really kick in until you leave Eos anyways.

 

ME:A looks great, runs great, plays great - but the lack of story depth & character stuff hurts it. Even with that being the case, it has that "I have to do one more quest b/c I barely walk and drive and keep running into them" mentality - and if you find that addicting, ME:A certainly has that going for it...and is the reason even after 41 hours, I'm still going strong with it.

 

About Overwatch purchase-price - I dunno. $20 at most or more likely less - since it's a Blizz game and since their games take forever to drop in price. I like it a lot, but I'm not sure if it's a game I can really stick around with. It's fine for an hour or 2 here or there, but that's it. 

 

D-Va and Pharah (spelling?) seem to be my real go-to characters here.

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.
