A decent second choice after Tyrion Lannister's preferred way.
I wish I could like your post 1000 times! One of my favorite lines of the series!

48 here. Whoever said 50 is young is full of shit. 50 is 2/3 dead.
I think older gamers are more appreciative of games these days than younger people simply because we have seen how far they have come in our lifetime (ColecoVision 1981 was my start). I lost count of the number of games that are ripped by people across the internet (resetera and reddit I am looking at you) but I play them anyway and find them to be quite enjoyable. I think being a programmer has something to do with that too as I know how hard it is to build complex programs/systems like games.
Glad to see I am not the only older gamer here.

That should get you solid 1080p gaming. Might have to tweak some settings down from high to medium. The only upgrade I would absolutely recommend would be to put an SSD in there. Even a 2.5 sata drive. Especially if you can put an m.2 nvme drive in. Install Windows on that. I'd also think about getting 16gb of ram in there.
You can get a 120GB SSD for $18+tax right now....perfect for an OS install. It is the single best quality of life improvement you can make.

Yeah, but the Gold Edition comes with Far Cry 3 Classic Edition, which even with the sale price right now is $20 by itself. So that kind of makes up for it no?
Honestly, FC3 classic is what sold me on the season pass enough to pre-order the gold version of FC5. The 3 add on packs - as good as they sounded in theory - was not enough. I did the same thing for Odyssey to get ACIII remastered in march

do u guys think far cry 5 gold edition is worth it if i already beat the main story and i beat far cry 3 BC version...? i mean id be buying it for the dlc's and the far cry 3 classic edition? is that worth it for $30?
Honestly, no. I liked the Vietnam DLC, the Mars DLC sucked. Haven't played the Zombies DLC since I was burned out by then. FC3 remaster (actually port of pc version) is still sitting in my backlog. I will play it in a year or 2 when I am craving more Far Cry gameplay at that point. I am playing the new Far Cry spinoff day 1 when it releases 2/15 (getting it for free with GCU/BBUY RC's).
That all said - if you really want to play FC3 remaster NOW then it is worth it (think of it as $15 for remaster and $15 for the FC5 DLC)
One more thing - if you haven't played Far Cry Primal yet that may be a better choice. I recently got 100% achievements on it and about 55 hours of play time. I was leery of it at first but I quickly fell in love with it.

FWIW I started and played a couple of hours of Fallout 76 last night and had fun with it. I didn't see any major bugs yet and ran into two friendly real people while playing...even helped one out of a jam. I think it has a lot of potential if they can clean things up and add more to it like they did for Elder Scrolls Online. That said I think you got to be a Fallout fan to enjoy it. I paid $32 for it with BBUY GCU after getting a Microsoft XBL refund on my full price purchase and I think that price is about right for it.

Looking like an indie date night coming up. Curious why a number of the season's heavy hitters have a 4 day countdown.
Battlefield 1 countdown should be the end of GwG, the other hourly ones are leaving Game Pass.

I am speculating but my guesses are:

31 days left - leaving GamePass at end of December???
Thanks for providing this info every week Bloomy!
