Excellent. By the time I get around to actually having the free time required to play this, it'll have dropped in price and be patched up enough to run well on my old desktop. Mwahaha!

I'm with you. In my case I need my Grim Dawn addiction to wane...

Man I can't wait for XCOM2. Been itching to play something new thats also pretty decent so I hope it delivers.

Make sure to check out Grim Dawn also. It's digital crack. Full release is coming in February after years of early access. I've only been playing for 3 weeks, have 80+ hours into it and haven't even played 4 of the classes.

Grim Dawn has its hooks in me. Excellent game I picked up in the steam Xmas sale due to someone recommending it here. Started playing a few days ago and time has ceased to matter to me in the only way a pooter game can do that.

Easy peasy, install GWX control panel and forget about Win 10.

This. Installed GWX a few months ago and haven't had any more win10 nags.

It will be funny this time next year when EA announces Battlefront servers will be turned off....but look at the shiny new game we just came out with! That one lets you play online plus look at all the high ratings it got in the (paid off) press.

I ordered a router from Tigerdirect in early December from a posting on slick deals. Sale completed without issue and I got a confirmation email saying it would ship close to Christmas. I didn't care since it wasn't a gift. A few weeks go by and I get another email that my order has been canceled:
Unfortunately, one or more items on your order cannot be fulfilled due to circumstances beyond our control (ie: item no longer available, discontinued, etc.).

Needless to say they lost future sales from me...

Yup, same thing happened in Autumn sale. First 3-4 days Ass creed black flag was full price then it went on sale later. FU UBI!

Edit: Check out totalbiscuits arbitrary 2015 game awards if you want ideas on what games might be worth buying... It's long, I only caught the second hour or so on twitch today so still need to watch it from the start.
Edit edit: He has a nice index in description to jump right to the sections

I don't think I would deal with installing uplay if they were giving it away free, let alone just a free weekend.

Do you mean in ShadowPlay? I just tested and, yes, you can delete the bind with the delete key. Here is a screenshot of my shortcuts after deleting the bind "activate push-to-talk".

Btw, I think ShadowPlay is pretty slick and have been using it to record Just Cause 3 personal highlights. Like finally getting 5 gears on a wingsuit challenge I replayed 500 times after baaarely missing it the previous 499.

Surprised it never had screenshot capability though.

I like watching Battle Royale DayZ on Twitch but all the cheating never made me want to actually buy it and play the main game.

My Star Wars tickets are for imax showing on Friday at 8. Reserved seats so no waiting in line. The only issue I will probably have is avoiding spoilers all day Friday. Guess I'll just have to unplug that day as much as I can.

I won't be upgrading my retail win7 ultimate to win10. The free upgrade is an OEM license so you are screwed if you decide to change out your mobo in the future. I may update oem win7 on a laptop to 10 but haven't got around to it yet.

JC 3 is awesome. Definitely has a learning curve but once the wingsuit is mastered and some mods unlocked via the (sometimes annoying) challenges, the game is a blast.

Also very unforgiving to slower CPU's. Changed out my G3258 CPU for an i7-4790 and that fixed ALL issues I was having with stuttering/framerates. When I built this machine in May I had plans to eventually swap in a faster 1150 socket CPU anyway but this game made my mind up for me Went from average 30-40 fps on low-med settings to steady 60fps with the i7 on mostly high settings. That's with a 970GTX 4GB video card and 16GB of RAM btw.

Square Enix server disconnections have been rare thankfully but I still had one that was very annoying and made me screw up a wingsuit challenge.

Most annoying issue I have is not being able to fire weapons until a push off/elbow animation completes first. This happens every time I fire a weapon. Maybe it's a corrupted save but since all we get is a checkpoint save system I can't load anything earlier...

Edit: good news, this wasn't a bug;somehow the melee key (C) got bound to mouse1 and the game let two actions use mouse1.
