You're right that the TPS DLC is nowhere near as good as 1 or 2. I will say this though: I enjoyed playing as both Jack and The Baroness. Jack is great because he's Jack and he's just so OP. The Baroness should be on anyone's radar that enjoys the sniper rifle and her cryo skill is very useful.

 

The Holodome arena is very solid, as far as arenas go. It can be repeated and it's a good challenge. I have yet to play Claptastic Voyage, though I hear it is very good.

 

What haunts me is paying near full price for the Season Pass and only getting one story DLC. It's even worse when I think about the Luxy's Space Adventure campaign add-on that they cancelled. I definitely feel a little burned there. :hot:

Wait - why was the DLC cancelled?

 

Did Gearbox not wanna finish-up any of 2K Austraila's work or something?

Gearbox couldn't out-source it to TimeGate Studios?

Bleh @ BL TPS Season Pass is only 50% off. How crap-tastic.

 

I already own BL1 + All DLC & BL2 + ALL DLC + BL TPS base-game.

DOOM (2016) [PC version] - Single Player Campaign has been finished + is in the books, after 19 hours of frantic action.

 

As someone who's played tons of FPS's since the Quake + DN3D days, Doom 2016 has one of the best SP Campaigns for a FPS Of All Time; it's nothing short of incredible.

 

This is serious Game Of The Year 2016 Material right here.

 

EDIT:

Quick question.

A colleague of mine wants to jump into BioShock. He's never played any but he has a Mac (a shiny new one, an iMac?) and likes the look of it.

Where's the cheapest place to pick it up? I saw CDKeys had the trilogy for £10. Semi-legit places or better.

Ta!

:grouphug:

I just noticed this.

 

Bioshock 2 + Bioshock Infinite both support STEAMPLAY (i.e. activate a Steam-key, no matter what you'll at least get both Windows version & Mac version)...

...but for some reason, Bioshock 1 is NOT a STEAMPLAY game.

 

Seriously? WTH 2K?

 

That might limit his choices on where to actually find Bioshock 1 if he has to really have a Mac version, since he will have to actually find a Mac version of it.

 

Does your friend also have maybe at least a cheap or older Windows PC laptop or desktop that could run Bioshock 1?

 

EDIT 2:

Bioshock 1 (Windows version) was in the first tier of a 2K HB (Steam key was $1; DRM-FREE version was 1 penny) - so you might be able to find Windows Steam-version cheap in the Cesspool, if anyone has it still lingering around?

 

EDIT 1:

Anybody know if it's been said if the Bioshock 1 HD Remaster will support STEAMPLAY?

 

B/c if the Remaster does support it - well, getting cheap Bioshock 1 old-version before-hand even on Windows would get HD Remaster for Windows + Mac.

Another "deal:"

 

EVGA 950 GTX 2 GB + Free Game $90 AR

 

At Newegg.  You get the voucher for either Dead by Daylight or Hard Reset Redux

 

Again, don't know anything about GFX cards or VRAM, but this could be a decent budget card.  

PC World review on 2GB GTX 950:

http://www.pcworld.c...gaming-pcs.html

By comparison, many games on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 struggle to hit 30fps at 1080p—and that's typically with lower graphics fidelity than the High settings in PC titles! 

 

You'll need to step up to a $200 GTX 960 or R9 380 if you want to consistently enable Ultra graphics or hit 60fps in most games at 1080p, however.

 

Bottom line: The Nvidia GeForce GTX 950 delivers a nice 1080p gaming experience at a price that won’t break your budget. Nvidia has a clear winner here.

 

 

EDIT:

Not bad for $90 from retail for a 900p/1080p card for 30FPS/60FPS (depends per game) aiming for "Normal" settings on new games, TBH. Surely, this beats the $150 launch price it had.

 

The thing MysterD worries about is the lack of VRAM - it only has 2GB worth of it. If there was more (i.e. like say 3GB, 3.5GB, or even 4GB), MysterD would say it's a great deal for a budget card. The lack of VRAM here in 950 with only 2GB will give you less wiggle room for higher textures + settings.

 

Let's face it: some games just are poor ports, got too much going on, are huge-open worlds, and/or are VRAM hogs no matter what anyways - so you might want more VRAM straight-up. There are other games that will go over that 2GB easy at Higher settings @ 1080p.

 

But, if you're buying this card - you're likely going for 1080p 30FPS/60FPS (depends per game) and aren't aiming to Very High to Ultra on new stuff; though you might get that on a little bit older games (i.e. Bioshock Infinite). If you don't mind 900p - or hell, 720p if you're happy with that - I'd bet you could go with a lower-resolution (than 1080p) + are fine with that, then do it just so you could boost performance w/ more frames and/or boost-up some settings/details. Anyone looking to go for any of that route - sounds like it'll do fine for you.

 

For anyone on a budget and a "for now" band-aid, seems like it'll do okay for you...for now. Even more so true, if you like to use programs limit + cap framerates (i.e. MSI Afterburner); programs to suspend off programs/services running in the background (i.e. GameBooster or Razer Cortex, anyone?); and are okay with "Normal" settings in newer games. Tweak the most out of your games + system, if you possibly can, you know?

 

Anyone wanting real future in your card (i.e. you might want 1440p or above) and want to jump in the mid-range and/or enthusiast club - eh, you might want to go after a 6GB GTX 1060, 8GB GTX 1070, or above. Those will likely have some longevity to them.

"Deal" Alert:

 

https://www.amazon.c.../dp/B01DCDP7WC/

 

Homefront Revolution Physical Disk is $19.84 on Amazon, free shipping with Prime  

This still needs to get cheaper.

 

Looks like they (DamBuster) put a Performance patch on Sept 1st; Steam boards reporting that mostly it fixes performance issues for most.

 

Though, some on higher-end PC's (i.e some with GTX 980's + above & those with some i7's) are getting issues:

Now I need to decide if I really need Black Ops for zombies on PC.  I have all three of those on PS3 and have not played more than 5 minutes of anyone of them.

I think you've pretty much answered your own question + decision here.
