Dear Ant, you are mistaken, the monthly ESO plus is absolutely optional !

Like me, you can buy the game, and play it forever never paying a cent more.

You can buy things at certain fan shops in various cities, that accept only game money (not real), search on google, I bought various super duper legendary items with game money exclusively.

The ESO plus gives access to certain provinces.
But as I, you can just buy them (bought a couple of them on Steam sales).
Others I finished on free play weekends (don't know it they will do that again).
And I never bought one single microtransaction.

But even the basic ESO alone is a total steal with so much content, months worthy.

Ooh. Dang it. Missed its sale!!

I am confused why anyone is buying Battlefield V
Because it was very cheap and its free weekend just ended. :O
Thanks for those 2 magic words, Ant, just got it
90% off, offline SP campaign +extras, 9 hrs average, up to 28 hrs if played leisurely, nice.

Also, Elder Scroll Online is still on sale since its addicting free trial just ended. I am tempted to get it, but no time to play with its required subscription.
I Pc game since 1994.
No other game has given me so much high quality content as ESO, none.
Took me 8 month of obsessive roleplaying, many hours every day, to finish it.
And I didn't go to Cyrodil !.
My best buy ever !

ESO was impressive. It reminded me of classic WoW. Both were addicting. No time to play and don't want to pay their subscriptions when I don't play much!

What do you wan't to bet that 90% of those reviewers play the game for about 5-10h and then never fire it up again.
Everyone has different tastes. I'm not assuming your tastes match the average reviewer mindset. But I'm also not assuming it's a turd either.

As for the other thing, yes, there's a large chunk of players who don't play much of a game. I'm one of them, I have too many games and it's rare I will play one a lot even if it's awesome. And we know this is widespread, because of achievements. Like there's achievements in some games for beating tutorial and the percentage rate might only be 70% of game owners have that achievement.

Pathfinder 2 pre-loads are available on Steam and Gog; I got my key notification from Owlcatgames in an email, got my key off of their website, and put it into my GoG account. Now just need to pass the time until the 2nd.

Wow, Pathfinder 2 isn't even on here? Hopefully everybody already bought that weeks or months ago, on Kickstarter, GoG or Steam.

I finally finished Pathfinder: Kingmaker last night, after putting it off for months. The game is amazing right up until the House at the End of Time, then stunlock spam enemies show up. But they are beatable, just have to prep. I'm really looking forward to the sequel, although I guess they dramatically changed the Kingdom/world map management portion, hopefully it's for the better.

KS here, and I only very shortly (probably too much already played it and think it is the BEST CRPG the past decade already) so make of that what you will I only played into act 2 - the siege. And everything until then was way better than anything Kingmaker ever had. The game feels fundamentally better, looks awesome and even sounds awesome. And that was months ago.

You already played it? Alpha or Beta I guess? I did a cheap tier Kickstarter, and if I had beta access I did not use it. Excellent to hear that you liked it though; I'm looking forward to getting my KS key and using it in GoG in a few days.

I'm just hoping they learned a lot from P:K and have a far less buggy launch!

I only played Beta when it released, and only till the siege in act 2 (defeated the enemy there and quit out, so as to not spoiler myself) - and yes, to me this game is a clear and really big evolution over Kingmaker. I am not gonna spoiler you so no worries, but the beginning of Act 1 is extremely fun and offers lots of roleplay potential, and even wide ranging choices (primarily who accompanies you and who does not) as well as really fun mechanics, like defending your starting outpost against a daemon attack and LOTS of options for characters with high skills to influence what happens later on. While ACT2 transfers into a "conquer the world back" mechanic with exploration and side missions that are pretty indepth and interesting. It was also pretty polished a few animation glitches aside. And again, that was many months ago And also fighting demons from DnD is way more fun than fighting plant fey things (imo)

Compared to Solasta and BG3 it's very different too, to me all 3 games offer something. BG3 the cinematic DnD, Pathfinder the raw insanity of Pathfinder I (based on 3.5e) and Solasta the tactical combat depth with vertical elements.

Rated very positive 85% on steam, so it apparently isn't that big of a turd.

I will note two things that stood out in browsing reviews, first is the game lacks voice communication and almost any way to communicate, even in their official discord they have voice channels disabled. Speaking of their official discord, second is that the mods sound ban happy.

Yeah, thanks for pointing that out. I mean if everyone likes it, it must be fucking awesome! /s

My brother and I have been playing it, and we're having a ton of fun. Sure, it's not too deep and doesn't have a compelling story or anything, but as long as you're enjoying your time, that's what matters, right?

Not everything needs to be groundbreaking or completely stick to the source material to be entertaining.

I played the free weekend for a couple hours. I enjoyed it, but geez the character customizations for levelling up was confusing! I wished I had more time to play games.

Depends on one's definition of "cheap" but you had to pledge at least at the $99 tier for early/beta access.
