I just got a PNY XLR8 1070 and want something to buy, but I bought most the good recent stuff on sales around the holidays for console's(just recently got sick of working around my poorly designed MSI , didn't find this article until until the warranty was up http://www.tomshardw...tion,18013.html , it would sometimes take 20 boot attemps to initialize, last few months specifically). I haven't bought any PC games in a while, has steam toned down their sales in the last few years?

Literally nothing on my wishlist is on sale. I have never seen that before.

Steam Sales ain't like they used to be. They've become the WalMart of digital distribution, to the point they really don't have to compete w/ other services to make $$$ and sales.

 

If you want great sales, check other 3rd party sites. 

Also, keep checking Bundle Sites like HumbleBundle, BundleStars, IndieGala, and others for deals on bundles.

GreenManGaming, Nuuvem, GamesPlanet, and others are also worth a look, as well.

 

PC Game deals in general seem to be not as good and/or as deeply discounted as they frequently used to be, as well.

 

Amazon's Digital Video Games section (for PC Game Downloads+Steam keys) just ain't what it used to be, either - especially since AmazonTony left. Meh.

 

Keep checking ITAD for best sale prices currently + historically:

https://isthereanydeal.com/

 

XCOM 2 is on sale in the Humble Bundle Monthly as the lead game for $12 (before any coupons/vouchers). We don't know the other titles in this bundle yet, though.

 

Also, what kind of games are you interested in? What kind of games do you like?

Well, even the base game doesn't support controllers? Expect Steam Controller mapped as KB/Mouse.

I dunno who'd really want to use a controller w/ XCOM series of games anyways. [shrug]

 

State of Derpcay, not sure - had it for some time, but still ain't played it.

Ain't touched YOSE Edition yet, either.

dragonfall has Steam Workshop support.  GoG version is .. not recommended unless u got someone dumb enough or just want to get the GoG version for collection purpose

Why does it have to be "or"?

Why can't it be both reasons altogether?

are GOG keys worth anything? I got a key for Shadowrun: Dragonfall - Director's cut thats collecting dust. would like to give it away around x-mas time or at least trade it for something else (i already own it on steam & gog).

Depends on who you talk to. 

 

I think most here on CAG especially in this thread prefer Steam. As a service, it's Light Years better than every other service (GOG, UPlay, Origin, etc) on PC.

 

Though, personally - I also really love the "No DRM" attitude that comes w/ GoG.

 

I already have Dragonfall DC on Steam + DRM-Free download from HB, BTW.

So Ubisoft sent out a survey, and they start asking about how I feel about certain publishers.

 

First question;

Pretty good new Hump Day bundle. 3 from my wishlist (Alchemist, NAL is Alive and City Quest). Easy HH though Tryfing Cycle Vanilla seems like a bust (developer is a little not great financially) though you can maybe get a key for Tryfing Cycle as explained on the post on Steam forum and only for today. Frankly the game doesn't look amazing, so I wont be bothering. It's not worth the extra $2 or so to get the key. I'm sure it will be in EA hell for a while.

Wait, when the heck did Xenus 2: White Gold get onto Steam?

 

Would be nice to see Boiling Point: Road To Hell (AKA Xenus 1) + The Precursors also hit Steam. 

 

EDIT:

Looks like The Precursors got Greenlit onto Steam:

Now all we need is Xenus 1 AKA Boiling Point: Road To Hell to get onto Steam!

I want the Homeworld Remastered Collection but I cannot justify it when the BTA is <$3.

I still have all my untouched Homeworld 1+2 retail-box copies.

 

Would be great to put the HW remasters + originals on Steam, but not at $10 + not with the BTA only right now sitting at around $3.63.

After 47 hours with it, Deus Ex: Mankind Divided is finished.

 

As great as the game itself is and is the major reason to recommend it, the story + character development seems to be going great and building into something awesome - until the game finishes up abruptly & lands into "anti-climatic" territory, suddenly rolls credits, shows a few clips to set something up, and feels like a major set-up for either DLC's and/or a sequel.

 

EDIT:

It's not the best deal and it's YMMV but many, many people are saying they got a $10 off any purchase at Best Buy email. It works as a gift card. Using this you could buy say Battlefront for $6.99 with in-store pickup.

If only SW: BF Ultimate was that price!

 

SW: BF base-game feels like it possibly could be a waste of a $10 coupon, unless you just really can't find anything else to buy at a better price at Best Worst Buy. You'd only be beating the lowest price by a few bucks, before even getting hit w/ tax.

 

SW: Battlefront PC (by DICE)  has been $10 before on Origin:

Plus, given complaints of its lack of content, then you'd probably have to play catch-up and get all the DLC's/Season Pass  or go Ultimate later b/c EA sucks at discounting DLC's/Season Passes.

Either Baldur Gate II or Gothic 1 is arguably my favorite RPG of all time, though that might be based on a good bit of nostalgia.  The two games are pretty different.  I played Gothic 2 before 1, but the two stories blend right into each other.  I remember Gothic 1 having a well thought out universe in it.  For example, one thing that I always liked was that you are in a prison "valley".  There is a reason why the map ends, its not just an invisible wall appearing out of nowhere.  I thought the NPCs seemed interesting and realistic.  If I remember correctly, you could basically get an interesting story out of anyone.

I definitely preferred Gothic 1's prison and magic barrier vibe. While I'm a big fan of dragons and whatnot, it was really nice to have a RPG not use them. Most of it had humans, which is what I think made Gothic 1 interesting.

 

Of course, G2 used dragons, had a "find so many X items" scheme (and so did Gothic 3), and felt a bit more generic w/ typical medieval-fantasy tropes. But, still - Gothic 2 is really good and should be played, even despite the minor issues I have with it.

 

While the ending was right for Gothic 1, I just wish it could've been done in a more impactful manner and less abrupt.

 

Still, Gothic 1 is great and the best game I think that PB has ever created. Just the freshness of that game w/ so many new things + tricks I really had not seen a RPG try before (i.e. action-RPG with its cool settings, lots of humans, full-fledged voice-acting, NPC's on schedules) - they haven't topped it.

 

Really should've went with the 6GB or 8GB, to be honest.

I'm trying to decide between the 1060 3gb and the 480 4gb

 

both seem to be about the same price.

 

Any suggestions 

Depends.

 

Do you want to go NVidia or AMD?

 

Personally, I wouldn't even consider a 3GB 1060 at its current price (around $200). It's basically a cut-down version of the 6GB 1060. You might as well just spend the extra $40-60 on the 6GB version for more VRAM so you can handle more settings + future-proof your PC a bit, if you're wanting to go NVidia on this one.

 

Plus, even at 1080p at High to Ultra or 1440p at Medium + above - there's a bunch of games in which you'll be eating up easily at least 3GB of VRAM when you go towards higher settings...such as Batman AK, Dying Light, Far Cry 4, Assassin's Creed Unity + Syndicate, and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.
