So what are people's opinions of the open beta? Anyone cancelled their pre-order?
thanks for heads up, spied this a few days ago, and wanted to try it out
This is for the open beta that's on rather than the full game (which isn't even out yet) just so people are aware.

The first one of these titles is one of the most challenging games on "uber" modes. Brilliant games. Even the naff graphics add to its appeal heat from me
This was a great MP back in the early 2000s but this version is SP only...blows my mind.
got this and "The Old Blood" earlier this year OK games but massive downloads and disappointed no multi-player at all..

I bought the game earlier. Its quite good. Too many people read reviews and not try it. This deserves heat
Great price for this game which I personally think is very good. Especially when you take your time scouting the way into buildings and watching out for the very hard AI that will take you down quickly. Not had a single crash in this game runs great.
Heat added.
It was the first time I bought from them but the code worked fine. Not the season pass version however I did see the season pass code one it's own was 35p on kinguin lol
this legit site at all? seems too low price?

this is season pass version

Hang on, is this game going to disapear for good from the Steam catalogue after this offer? What happened? oO

Also, what's this I see about the lack of soundtrack, did they not pay their bill or something?! I remember reading about this for years whilst at Uni - felt like we had to wait for ever! It was worth the wait...

Heat OP!
last day tomorow to grab this bargain before it gets taken down. £2.99 for the whole package on steam
xenononon
£3 for the whole lot was pretty good - will be a first playthrough for me so I'm looking forward to it.


Same here, been meaning to play this since it came out on 360
Have looked around and cannot find cheaper than Steam

£2.49 / £3.29 on gog - Link if you want to pay more for some reason or have credit...

Same price as Steam on Humble Bundle Link

Same price on GMG and GamesPlanet , but doesn't include American Nightmare as far as I can see GMG LinkGamesplanet

I've bought on Steam. Not my type of game, but heard great things about the story.

To be fair to the OP, Steam are notorious for their hidden P&P fee. On the surface it looks great.
That is true, don't they add it like at the final stage or something?

Sorry mate, yeah. In fact, I don't even think they state it at any point during the process, it's just added to the total amount on payment.

It's gone cold because last months humble bundle was Inside, Dirt Rally, and a bunch of other games for a tenner.

That being said that was a very good deal and I haven't seen any lower prices than this since

I don't like playing online and I feel this game wants me to play online to unlock cards quicker

Bayonetta is running at about 2fps on my kabylake i7700k 32gb ddr4 and 970. Not much making me think this will run better.

Something's wrong with your setup. The port of Bayonetta port runs really well. It ran for me [email protected] on a i5 3570k and a gtx 970. Digital foundry did some testing on it.

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2017-bayonetta-pc-performance-analysis


No issues on other games. Apparently in some cases it's working better on older processors. Judging from the forums it looks like the issue maybe related to either nvidia drivers or the windows 10 creators update.
Unlocked frame rate on this is massive, 1440/144hz here I come.
This could be £30 and still get heat from me, I love this game. :)
Probably one of the best last gen games

Steam controller is the best gamepad for FPS if you don't like mouse and keyboard.
Xbox one and dualshock 4 are both good in general. Depends on which you prefer.

Can anyone tell me what the difficulty options are? I'm looking for an easy setting as I'm pretty lame at FPS'. Thanks OP for the deal +1 heat.
They tweaked the difficulty on the redux version of this game. If your not great at shooters stick it on easy.

Thanks - that's perfect. I couldn't find whether there was an easy option even available and I was kind of hesitant as there were lots of various forum posts saying the normal is tough.

I played the game for a few hours, matchmaking is bad, keeps putting me in games as a rookie v high level/veteran/pro. Then we start losing, then my team leave and I get bots as my team mates and lose further.
It's fun but I won't end up buying it
That's because you're playing unranked. It's where you're going wrong.
You need to get yourself playing Ranked. It will establish an MMR for you and put you with players of similar skill.
Interesting , so if I go ranked i take it I will face only people with rookie ranking too who are new to the game ? Most games i play with a ranked system pitch against whoever is available opposed to level

You have to do 10 placement games first. These games it will kinda just pitch you against anyone and everyone (it still tries to get people near your skill though)

After this, you will be given a ranking, and a hidden MMR rating. Keep playing a few more games to properly even out your ranking. And you will then be playing against people who have a very similar skill rating as you. It will then continue to match you with people around your level/skill. The game does have proper matchmaking, it doesn't just pair you against anyone.

Anyone buying bundles with spare keys? Would love some free sw!
Buying any of these won't give spare keys - instead Steam typically removes any that you already own from the bundle purchase, reducing the price accordingly.

These aren't expensive - if there's a anything that you actually want, just go ahead and buy. ;)

I'm showing the collection as £44.30.
£13.20 is just the price saved by buying the collection rather than each game individually.
https://isthereanydeal.com/#/page:game/price?plain=starwarscompletecollection

As above, the price seems to have been moving somewhat until reaching its current -78% - it's unclear whether or not this was intentional.

Interesting. I see what you mean but I do wonder if this was pre or post the patch that fixed the textures defaulting to low resolution. Thankfully it is not all bad and there are some areas where the definitive edition is clearly better, just hope the other areas are not that noticeable.

Unfortunately I haven't been able to find a comparison video post-patch, but at it's current price on Steam i'm almost inclined to buy it anyway so I have both and can compare it for myself and see which I like better

I watched a comparison video on youtube and apparently the original pc version is better. This one looks worse at times and misses a lot of textures, so if you can get the original, choose that one

steam logoSteam – From Counter-Strike Software to One of the World’s Largest Gaming Communities

Valve, the company behind Steam, have been in the gaming business since 1996. Since that time, they have produced the first-person, sci-fi shooter Half-Life, horror titles such as Left 4 Dead, and the multiplayer combat game Team Fortress. They’re also the creators of the popular online action game Counter Strike, as well as Portal.

Steam is one of Valve’s newest innovations. Initially, Steam was simply a tool to provide Counter Strike customers with game updates however, the technology quickly morphed into a gaming platform. Today, Steam is one of the largest gaming platforms in the world. It has more than 3,500 games in a variety of genres that ranges from action to indie as well as an ever-growing community of gamers.  The number of members currently stands at more than 100,000,000, made up of people from 237 different countries worldwide.

Steam allows both fans and game developers to not only buy and play games but also to modify and create new games, in addition to building communities around games from Valve and other independent game producers.

Finding the best deals at Steam

Deals and discounts are slightly hidden on the Steam homepage. To find the latest deals, you will need to scroll down to “New Releases“ and then click the “Specials“ tab.

There are usually a large number of discounts at any given time, however you can narrow it down by tag (for example indie, adventure, action, etc), type (for example game, software, demos, etc), and by number of players (for example single player or multiplayer).

Steam also runs a big sale once a year during the Black Friday weekend. This normally begins on Black Friday and runs through until the end of Cyber Monday. During this weekend, discounted products are normally featured on the homepage as well as on the “Specials“ page.
