While I'm looking for a few games to buy on sale during the event (Both Dishonored games and Doom 4) I think GOG beat Steam already. I bought about a ton of games on GOG this month during their sale and I think I barely hit $20.

I even finally managed to get Dragon's Dogma for 11.99, which was a steal. I even got two games for free out of it.

GOG tore it up this summer.

And how much are the two Dishonored games and Doom 4 on GOG?

Apples and oranges.

To be fair, it's not the latest stuff we're looking for when we hit the Good OLD Games site.

~Finis~

Which is exactly the reason why you get more games for $20 on GOG. That is why you should not compare Steam to GOG. Apples and oranges.

So, on day 1 and hour 1, we will all check the prices for the games on our wishlist and then the sale will be over. We will buy the games that we think are cheap and worth the asked $$$ and will move on.

The sale should run for maybe just one day. With the first shot all ammo is gone.

The i7 7820x looks VERY interesting to me. I will wait for Threadripper and decide then.

CitizenCon... I think the people behind this Con should be happy that Star Citizen is almost forgotten by now. Just go totally dark now and nothing bad is gonna happen (like being sued or something).

There will come a day when the last hat has been designed.
There will come a day when the last backstory to a hat has been written.
There will come a day when the last game designer has left Valve.

This will be the day. The day when Valve is no more and all that is left is the vage form of the cadaver of a formerly brilliant game company in the mist. Or is it not mist but Steam?

A remaster like StarCraft? So - not using their latest engines but polishing the stuff from 20 years ago? Please, Blizzard, I am ready to pay but only for some REAL overhaul and work done that I can actually SEE. Alright? Kthxbye.

I LOVE this game. I enjoyed Dead Island pretty much, but Dying Light was absolutely fantastic. Good to see Techland support its game even years after release. New enemies? New gameplay mechanics? I am in. I will start a new playthrough after all dlcs have been released. Thanks for the freebies, Techland!

@eRe4s3r: May have been a temporary glitch in the matrix for you at the time, as I just watched the embedded video.


Nope, definitely region locked ;( And I tried with various anti-region lock sites too.. nothing. In fact ALL Bethesda videos (literally, all of them from their youtube channel) don't work for me.


Life is hard behind the great censorship firewalls of countries like China, Russia, North Korea.

Ye might wanna hold off on this update and DLC, it breaks tooltips... and without tooltips, nothing in this game magic wise is functional.

Actually, it breaks a lot more than that as I just discovered in a short play... not really enjoying these events either, just got one 2s before reaching my destination on the map and was teleported right back to where I started that 3day travel... great!

And this is how they turned 30 hrs of gameplay into a whopping 60+ hours! HOORAY!

Maybe I'm a kid at heart but at 47 I still love Star Wars. But there is ZERO chance of me buying Battlefront 2 early or at launch and frankly not much chance of me ever buying it given the bullshit EA and DICE pulled with the 2015 Battlefront. An empty, soulless game lacking content with the added insult of season pass crap that almost doubled the price of the game, adding the stuff that actually made it worth the $60 it was originally sold at. Fuck EA for destroying everything it touches.

And to throw salt in the wound, it even sold with a pay-to-win gun (Han's blaster - which was totally OP at launch) if you bought the "Deluxe" version. Yeah, you could unlock it without money but only if you hit max level. In the meantime you'd get easily gunned down by the people who had one from the get go.

At least there seems to be no season pass and everything free with the base game: http://www.tomshardware.com/news/star-wars-battlefront-ii-multiplayer,34737.html

Unlike the first game, which had paid content and micro-transactions, all the post-launch content, including Finn, Captain Phasma, and additional maps from the upcoming Star Wars: The Last Jedi movie will be free for everyone.

They just had a free STEEP weekend. I played it a bit, but it didn't grab me.

Not even at a STEEP discount?

Study Finds Children Who Drink Non-Dairy Milk Shorter Than Peers.

Ah yes, the death throes of the dairy industry. It won't be long now until cows milk is a delicacy instead of a staple.

Nobody want's to drink your abuse juice anymore. Given that 1/2 of the world already doesn't and never did drink it, and they still don't get osteoporosis there is no reason to drink cows milk.

Awwww... Cheese, shakes, yogurt, curd, ice cream - and I only want the REAL stuff without fake milk, because why replace it in the first place?! No, I love dairy products and always will.

Comey's strong confidence in Mueller's investigation is reassuring, but that has never been my concern.

My concern is that the cowards on the right will not put America before party if it becomes clear Trump was involved in wrongdoing.

Nothing's gonna happen. Only serious political crimes like an affair with a White House intern grant an impeachment.

I wonder if getting a golden shower from two Russian prostit... Aw, hell no. Forget it. Who wouldn't?
