I wish Nintendo would whore out Mario Kart, but nooooo... shaking fist
finally beat story mode in MK 11 on PC. probably the first time ive finished a game in January in years, although I took a long break from MK 11 and only came back to mess around as the joker, and decided to finish up story mode. been spending lots of time with my switch lite on the go and in the evenings. 2020 looks like PC/Switch focus for now. now when people make me mad at work, i just play a round of MK lol. (yes yes i double dipped)

The European price for CODE SHIFTER on Steam is disappointing.
I'm used to conversions where they simply take a price in $, and just replace the $ for a € (despite the value of the € being superior to the $).

But, Arc System Works has done one better, and is charging $14,99 in the US, and... 16,79€ in Europe. o_O

Tbf though, € price has taxes included and $ price not, I think, so I'm not tooo bothered by 1:1 conversions here.
But I'm not exactly knowledgeable about US taxation, so I could be completely wrong.

My understanding (that could be wrong) is since taxes in the US can vary between states and sometimes inside them they never add them until checkout, which to me looks weird.

Yeah, I check IndieGala, Groupees, Humble, Fanatical and StoryBundle regularly and between them there's usually a bundle or two that i have my eye on even if i don't end up buying them.

Just noticed that one. ;)

Anyone wants to split a bundle, since it's in one of their "happy hours" (meaning, if you purchase right now, you get 2 copies of the full bundle)?
It would be 3,16€ each.

It's this bundle:
Use this group if you don't mind to split with strangers

What GPU does everyone have? What resolution do you play in? Curious.
2080Ti, with a 1440p monitor @ 144 Hz. I could "overclock" the monitor to 160, but I am not sure if that would be good for the health of the device, and I'm honestly already impressed with 144 Hz.
I assume for playing at high frequencies, the CPU actually becomes more important at some point than graphics power alone, but I assume my Ryzen 3700X is up to that task for the coming generation too

I use Barter.vg for bundles. They post them very quickly and if you log in via steam you can instantly see what you own, have on your wishlist etc...

Indiegala has probably had 3 decent bundles in a row, makes up for the 30 before that that were shithouse!

GTX1080 at 1440p 165Hz. My monitor overdrived itself from 144 to 165 at some point and I just left it.

I noticed that the the previous games of GuJian series also are on sale
Those are good prices. (y)

The question is, will they ever be playable in English?
I know a fan translation of the second game is in an advanced state, but a translation for 1 it's doubtful.
Still, for the current asking price, I think I'll buy both, in case the first game ever gets a translation. I still have some wallet funds from card and items sale on the Steam marketplace. ;)

There seems to be a translation going on for the first game, but I don't know the status of it as of now

My bad, I saw people were working on a translation, but it's for the first game, not the second one. :giggle:

Hmm that is a G502, the very first version, I don't know if there is a blue version of it.

Temtem is fun and really hard compared to Pokemon.
Mine is a G502 too, bought in 2015. Just googled, it seems there's an RGB version you can change at will. Now I'm jealous haha.

Need to try Temtem then, although I hope it's not too hard.

Did the dev talk about it? It's the same person behind Vanishing of Ethan Carter. Couldn't find any info.
kinda/sorta ... he was one of those "it's just another launcher, i don't see what the big deal is" devs when egs launched

plus - it's a UE4 game

Saw on jimqusition that there were sex scenes in the new Terminator game and got curious haha!
There are, but they're optional and mostly superfluous to the story (at least in my play through). I wouldn't suggest you play for that, play for the shootouts with t800s

If anyone wants to buy CODE SHIFTER, 2GAME has a good price.


Go to their store, change the currency to EUR (for some reason, the £ store "only" has a 19% discount, while the EUR store has a 23% discount, making it cheaper), and don't forget to use one of their 10% discount codes (like HARDCORE2GAME) for an additional discount.

Conglomerate 451, a dungeon crawler with a cyberpunk twist, is leaving early access on the 20th of February:




If anyone wants to buy it, in preparation for the game's full launch, 2GAME has it currently discounted (it's about 50% off, compared to Steam's price, more if you use the discount code HARDCORE2GAME):

Anyone else having problems with Steam and PayPal? I've even tried my phone and it keeps getting rejected but i can use Steam and PayPal seperately no problem. Strange.

I've been checking Steam using my browser, and there's been some occasional errors today.
The website seems to be having some problems.

Cook, Serve, Delicious 3 is awesome. Loving it so far :cat-pizza-blob:
I prefered the progression from the first game and here we have once again more control over our menu, which was pretty much the only thing that I didn't love about the second game.
So instead of having a selection of items that you can't change, you can select the foods from a list that varies depending on which place you're traveling through.

Once ive finished RDR2 (on chapter 6 now) my plan is to take a crack at some backlog games. Someone mentioned Hotline Miami earlier and ive had that in my library for ages so i think id like to give it a go......however.....it looks like a mouse/keyboard game. Has anyone played it with a controller? Is it worth trying to set up a custom input for it?

EDIT - Ah, never mind. i see it has partial controller support. Woo.

Yeah, I suppose Steam is mega dead RN. Just on this page I get huge black space where embedded things should go.
In case like this, when steam shit the bed big time, if I play a game and unlock an achievement, will it be acknowledged ?

Maybe Valve is allocating all its resources on making Index available worldwide and back in stock, and Steam had to suffer momentarily.

Who am I kidding, we're never getting Index officially here.

Btw, do you still have problem accessing Steam at work?
No, they were "fixed" after 24h or so. ;)

I thought this IP was banned permanently, but thankfully, things returned to normal a day later.
Soon after, Augmented Steam released a fix to tackle issues with clearing big wishlists, so hopefully anyone else that tries to use it to clear a wishlist with a few thousand titles won't experience the same problems I did.
