Finally broke down and bought a couple things, Hyperdimension Neptunia 2 and 3, with their DLC, and the DLC for HN1. Great parody kind of RPGs.

I think the only thing I bought was the season pass for Fallout 4.

And I'm okay with that.

Well I showed restraint this time around so no purchase for me. Also the fact that a rat/squirrel chewed a wire to one of my fuel injectors didn't hurt my decision to keep my money in my pocket either.

Nordic Classic games 80% off through July 25th! Pain Killer- Hell and Damnation is one of the titles and that is on my Wishlist. Great deal that I am going to pick up since I'll get 13 or so other games for the price of one!

Got my Beta code for backing Everspace by Rockfish games on kickstarter. It came in on the 29th, but failed to see the email until tonight. Got installed and it looks to be a fun space shooter. Looks to be single player so far and that is fine with me as it is just fun to fly around and shoot. It's not a true space sim by any means, but a fun arcade one. Using mouse and keyboard to fly and it feels pretty smooth. Game supports my 2560x1080 which was great to see! This game is set to come out on Xbox as well as an xboxid game, to bad you do not get a key for on their as well!
Link for a beta clip can be found here:

I'm holding off too. I was tempted to get it for the last 3 days.

I kept thinking, I'm going to need to be in early to start discovering stuff and naming it before everyone else.


The game is endless, there will always be things to discover. I'm waiting on a discount, like always.

Here's a screenshot of the Graphics Options screen. Which thankfully won't be visually constrained by hardware the way the PS4 version is.

Same here. I'm intrigued by this game but don't want to end up with impulse buy remorse.

Lots of negative reviews on steam right now. Looks like some technical issues.

I couldn't get it running whatsoever here at work (AMD A10-based) but I tried it at home (i7, TitanX) and it worked just "fine"!

I say "fine" as it kinda isn't super smooth but I rushed in.

Pretty fun so far but it might just be tedious for other people. I like it and had fun discovering things while on TeamSpeak with @Marafice Eye screaming about the things we found.

Yeah it's definitely a like it or hate it type of game. If you like exploration and discovery, I'm enjoying it. Just had my first hostile space encounter. Got notified I was being scanned for valuable cargo, then 3 ships warped in and started attacking me. Managed to take them down but I have to say recharging your shields on the fly should be easier than having to bring up your inventory, clicking on the shield, then clicking on the material to use. That's a little tedious imo.

So far been to a few planets and 2 systems. Found a "nuclear" planet, talk about scorched earth. Couldn't stay outside too long due to radiation but I'll go back and explore for sure. So far I'm liking the game and haven't had any issues with it playing.

Yeah. That first planet I am still on is very radiated. Have to keep charging up my suit protection.

Good looking out for us with the space attack. Didn't know that would happen. I'll try and make some 'units'. LOTS more to upgrade my ship.

Btw, did you upgrade your ship?

I am conflicted about NMS, I want to try it (even though it's not my type of game) but after watching a few live streams it seems kind of 'meh' and two of the three streamers said it was pretty boring after several hours of play.

Dude...just hook up with any of us that have it and try it for "free".

Sounds like you probably would not like it if it's "not your type of game" and looks "boring".

I like to explore and so far, it delivers. Granted I've only played an hour but it just came out this morning and I gotta work, yo!

So they have one of those invite a friend thing to get them some play time?
Or is it something else? I wouldn't mind trying it out myself. Seems like a game I'd really only want to play with others.

That's a very generous offer (much appreciated) but I think you are correct and I would not enjoy it (the game is getting ripped, wow).
