Is there a pc joy pad anyone recommends
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.

Was a strange one this it was originally 75% off then 93%, then shot up.
Happens with steam I suppose.

Edited By: geebeegooner on May 03, 2017 20:10
it went back up to £44 whilst i was checking out :(
Is 78% for me so £44
price just shot up, added it to my basket and it was £5 .25 for the games i didn't have, now £17.62
bloody typical! Go to pay for the £13 collection - soon as I do, the computer crashes - go to try purchase again and now the price is at £45. Well done Steam! Ffs.

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

Not sure which video you watched but that can't be right. A lot of the more in depth articles and comparisons seem to agree that the PC definitive version is the best version of the game.

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

SKSE hasn't been released for it yet, and they havent given an expected release date. This means that few mods are available for it, so might not be worth it if like me you like to heavily mod Skyrim.

Edited By: salestion on Apr 29, 2017 11:05
Wow, so many down votes?! I have no idea why. Never been posted on here this cheap and you cant even get it this cheap on key selling websites O_O!
Didn't like this compared to Fallout 3, which was a better designed game. Skyrim just rambled on endlessly.

Might be a fun game if you dont do it in real life lol... Ive been a mechanic for many years and gave this a go, but playing it was so labourious and boring that I fixed one car and couldnt be arsed doing another one! The first 2 cars in the game both said they needed new pistons, I have only had to change 2 pistons in my life.

jeez what next hair dresser simulator, librarian simulator, seems like no profession is off the table.

Parking attendant simulator would be interesting too. lol
Is £3.41 just for the game? Do you have to pay extra to have it installed?
Do you actually learn a lot of stuff about car repair?
Anyone know of anything like this to do with motorcycles?

Game title gag alone is worth a couple of quid. Thanks OP!
Hadn't actually heard of this one but the reviews look good enough and it deserves the £1.39 just for the incredibly bad pun doubling as a title.
Saw this when it was released but reviewers said it was a bit pricey for what it is, but now it's a great price, thanks OP!

Love this game! Play it all the time online and bought loads of Amazing SIM racing hardware. No turning back! Great fun.
Assetto Corsa is amazing as a simulator and one of the best VR experiences there is, expect a fairly steep learning curve because of this and not so much of a player friendly experience like GT/Forza, if you don't have a wheel or are not planning to get one I would not recommend this game. Be sure to get it with the dream packs as well if you want to play online as the DLC content is used often. Don't play on minorating servers to start with as you'll ruin your safety rating, however this is a good place to go once you can race clean and it restricts the crash happy from being among you.

Same here, got the g920 two days ago from the currys offer, played forza 6 on my Xbox and loved it so now looking for pc games to use it on as well!
I was just missing the Porsche Dream Pack from my DLC and that was only £6.45 for all three packs!

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.

Steam – Where to Shop

Steam’s products are mainly games but also include software, hardware, and movies that are available to purchase at Steam’s website www.steampowered.com. From here, you can download the software needed to power Steam to your desktop. Steam’s desktop software is available for PCs, Macs, and Linux users.
