Had this on Xone but never finished it and ended up trading it in for $33 towards another title.

It has an over-all 'Very Positive' on steam so hopefully the pc version runs well.

I really enjoyed RYSE. For that price it's a no brainer.

Posting in the Steam Thread since it is VR relevant
This here is a good example of why I think VR is going to be here to stay. Now just imagine a Arachnophobia one I love the reactions of the people.

Saw this on Reddit and some people here might want to take advantage too... $100 Steam gift card for $85:

http://www.bjs.com/100-steam-gift-card.product.287222

(Even though it's BJ's, no membership required.)

Edit: Damn, they're cancelling orders, claiming no stock.

I'm thinking it would depend on price for either. RotTR is $35 on G2A and BO3 is $30

I got RotTR for $30 a while back, the price on cdkey seems to bounce around (it's $38 now).


I saw BO3 the other day for $27 but don't recall which vendor.

Been playin arkham knight now for a while, loving it despite the horrible handling batmobile. I know a lot of people were upset with how the game ran but it's as solid as can be for me. At launch I couldn't even get it to start. But now, more stable and performed far better then fallout 4 which I put ~200hrs into.

My rig is old too. I7 2600k, 16gig ram, sandy bridge, sli 970's. Windows 10 Pro which was an upgrade not a fresh install. WD blacks using SSD cache drive. SSD OS drive. SLI ran like crap, but turned that off, dedicated my 2nd 970 as a physx card, turn on the 60fps option because 30 was a drag (were consoles locked at 30?) and with everything on max, all the nvidia stuff on, 1920x1080 ran PERFECT. Never an issue. Start to finish I had two crashes but honestly I think its because I left my security camera software running by accident.

Never paid a dime for the game, came with my gtx 970, but well worth playing through. Every bit as good as the others if not better.

I have a few amplitude games and love them. I skipped endless because I hate strategy games, and most especially hate the turn based ones. So there you go, it's turn based strategy, and all turn based strategy sucks.

Anyone know of a way to uninstall the xbox app on Windows 10?

I have the beta xbox app installed as well so I'm getting double dinged when I get an achievement. Funny thing is there are no options to uninstall either one from what I can see.

The beta one should let you uninstall it. But you can also turn off notifications for one of them in Windows' notification settings, I think.

Steam seems to be freaking out today, probably some sort of attack or botched server update. Hopefully all those 0byte updates weren't malicious.

I had 55 updates. Almost all of them were 0 bytes. I wonder what the hell that was about?

Yeah, my Steam yesterday was acting weird when the update came up. Then when it rebooted, my Norton firewall blocked it.

I had 42, all 0byte, but then about 15 minutes later, those same 42 games had legitimate updates

Same here with my 103 games. When I installed a Steam update, it did the same thing. It almost seems like the first updates removed something and the second ones added it back.
