I'm just thinking of when I get BDO, I'm going to try to create some char's just to reserve these names:
"Syntax Error" and "Error CAG".

The more + more I hear about Human Head's cancelled Prey 2, the more I scratch my head at Zenimax + Bethesda....ugh....
Plenty of spoilers here about storyline, plot, plot twists, connections to Prey 2006, gameplay elements, and other stuff that HH planned for this game.

State of Derpcay finally on sale? I was thinking of buying this during summer sale and not playing it in anticipation of not buying or playing State of Derpcay 2 anywhere near the time it releases. I'll bite and see what happens with humble monthly since I probably won't put 2 hours into it in the next 5 years let alone next week.
y u no buy state of derpcay yose [steam key] on uplay during ubisoft glitch-fest for $3.75 on 11/29/2016?
Also if you own the original the DLC for it is now on sale for $1.75 each.
I am missing Lifeline DLC for original version of State of Derpcay.
Though, I already (obviously) have SoD YOSE Remaster - and that has Lifeline.

Mass Effect 3 had the best multiplayer in any MP or SP game I've played in ages.
Thanks for the opinions on FO4 and ME4. You've all successfully convinced me to fakey neither of these things, so, hey, more money in my pocket.
Fallout 4 sounds pretty mediocre based on D's typically-thorough analysis. Also, my 29 minutes of playtime last night didn't really do much to sell me on it.
I think I'd rather play the new Mass Effect, but I think waiting on the bug-squashing and price-dropping are probably a sound strategem.
If you are looking for a FO-style RPG - well, FO4 probably won't do it for you. It's disappointing in the RPG-decision making factor, which famously FO1+2+NV are great at and FO3 still does a pretty good job of. (especially for a BethSoft game!). You're better off w/ FO:NV in that regard for wanting a FO-style RPG, TBH.
FO4 feels more like an open-world shooter/ARPG hybrid with some base-building elements.
Since I do like ARPG's and shooters - it's probably why I still like Fallout 4 a hell of a lot, despite its (RPG!!!!) shortcomings. I still sunk ridiculous hours into it (over 110+ there), so I still like it a hell of a lot. Most games - yeah, you'll never see me sink that kind of time into it; so I still dig it.
I don't think 29 minutes is really going to tell you much about FO4. The story's just getting going (if you actually try to stick with it) + you're just getting out of the tutorial section (if you ain't speed-demon'ing your way through it). Get your feet wet, get running around, do some quests, explore some cool areas - that's always what Bethesda was great at, anyways, since pretty much Morrowind.

So I think I saw the guy with the raincoat full of knockoff watches on the corner selling Origin codes for Mass Effect. . . . If I were to fakey either this for $30 at Amazon this weekend or FO4 for $18 through the Humble Store, which would you guys go with?
Can't speak on ME:A, but I do have Fallout 4.
I have around 113 hours with FO4, according to Steam.
FO4's great, but not on NV's level of greatness. It's a different kind if great, TBH.
The combat (which feels more like an Id Shooter) + gun-upgrading system has vastly improved the Fallout franchise here in FO4. I absolutely love the quick-look system, too - i.e. you can walk to a dead enemy, a box pops up, and you pick-up items on a dead enemy without ever going into the main inventory + stopping combat ; you can keep it the flow of combat still going (side note - you can also go into the usual time-stopping Inventory when you walk over the enemy if you don't want to Quick-loot, just hit the appropriate key).
But...the questing, RPG'ing + decision-making isn't on FO:NV's level. Not many quests have more than different shades of a "Good-natured" style decisions in FO4, which is odd for a FO game. A lot of quests in FO4 range from different shades of good here, instead of typical older-school FO's range of good, bad, neutral, and gray. In some ways, this feels similar to Mass Effect, in that way. In FO4 - you might do something nice, but have an extra option where you'll be a sarcastic jerk in the process and/or maybe be able extort more $ or extra items for doing a quest for something.
There's also tons of kill X guys, wipe-out X area, and quests of that sort, too - where you really don't have any decisions. Oh, plus if you find him - there's Preston Garvey's constant barrage of quests, too. "Go to X area; set-it up + colonize it; and defend it" or "Go wipe out X area and then we can colonize the area."
Also, this is a Bethesda game - they don't do the writing, dialogue, and stuff anywhere as great as Obsidian. Not even damn close.
For every step forward in FO4 (combat, upgrading equipment), there's a step or two back (questing + RPGing + storytelling).
Still great, mind you - but a different kind of great.

I'd actually call 'Watch Dogs 2 a $60 value' the laughable part.
*For the record Watch Dogs 2 is pretty fun and a vast improvement upon the original.
So, is WD2 say a worthy $10 investment?
For the record: I dug WD1 and got my $10 worth on it, IMHO.

Best Buy's Deal of the Day includes Mass Effect Andromeda on PC for $29.99 ($23.99 with Gamers Club Unlocked).
I'm thinking of finally biting on this. I was gonna wait for $20 or less, but I don't see it dropping much lower than this anytime soon.

Tier 1: $1
Worms Clan Wars
Tier 2: $5ish (at the moment)
Grim Fandango Remastered
Broken Sword 5
Tier 3: $10
Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel
Day of the Tentacle Remastered
Not super jazzed on the games, but that's by far the lowest Borderlands has been to date I believe. Probably will cave before it's run its course.
I remember when BL:TPS was $4.80 in a Complete The Borderlands Bundle on Steam.
I got Spoder'd.
