Yeah, I'm in the exact same boat as you guys (except I had to uninstall to free up space).  I might go back after another patch or two, but between the disappointment and already running what was there into the ground, I'm not super excited to go back yet.

Does anyone know of a way to get steam to stop offering me things that are already in my library?Typically about 75% of things on my screen are already in my library. No matter how good the sale is, I'm not buying it again.

I thought that was supposed to be one of the things that they fixed in this new big Store update, but it appears that when things are on sale they ignore that? 

Maybe they want us to buy extra copies for our friends or something? 
83  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Free Ubisoft Giveaways every day for 30 days on: November 26, 2016, 03:59:34 AM
I guess in addition to their monthly giveaways, Ubisoft is also doing one free giveaway a day for the next month.

Day 1 is a free Rayman Classic mobile game.

I just got my PC Uplay key from GMG, so I guess this is happening on Tuesday (hopefully Monday night!).

Were you able to get their Black Friday code to work for the extra 10% off?  Their site seems to be breaking a lot lately...
86  Non-Gaming / Hardware / Software Hell / Re: Worth changing from a 980 GTX to a 1080 GTX? on: November 25, 2016, 03:24:25 PM
I guess it depends on your personal financial situation.  To me it wouldn't be worth it, but I don't have a 4k monitor or the extra money to spend right now. 

If you plan on doing 4k gaming with AAA first person shooters and such, then the extra speed (and probably more importantly more VRAM) is going to help you do that.

Note that these benchmarks are for the normal GTX cards, not the GTX Ti cards which are going to be a bit faster.  If your current or expected card is a Ti, you can change it to that.

It's also worth taking a look at the Humble Mobile Bundles, you can usually get a ton of games for $5 total.

Their boardgame sale just ended, but here is the current sale (I'm not as familiar with any of these games, so ymmv):

Very cool.  I downloaded the first free book, though I have no idea when I'll get to it since I have a backlog of several others to get to as well.

I'd be curious to hear if authors get anything from books they discount to $0 on Amazon?  Or is it purely trying to get people into a series and convert them into fans to buy more?  (which is also a great plan, just curious)
91  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Humble Staff Picked Bundle (Infinifactory, Grim Dawn, Volume, more) on: November 23, 2016, 03:46:49 PM
Another Humble Bundle, this one is a staff-picked bundle.

Pay at least $1 for:
Volume
TIS-100
Legend of Grimrock II

Pay more than the average (currently $4.01 for):
Infinifactory
The Secret World (I didn't realize this was even still going...)
Dungeons II

Pay $14 or more to also unlock:
Grim Dawn

If you don't own Grim Dawn already, that's a great deal for a great action-RPG Diablo-like.  Since I already own it, I went with everything below that.

Quote from: Purge on November 18, 2016, 03:41:54 PM

I loved the premise and the story of the first game - and have no interest in the multi aspect of this one.

It's on sale on the XBL Gold weekly deals.

Should I buy it?

If you want something along the lines of a Far Cry or Crysis game with you as a rebel in a city taken over by an oppressive regime, then maybe yes.  It is kind of an open world with places to take over, emergent missions, enemies to spot and hide from, that sort of thing. 

For me most everything is pretty good except I always seem to die so quickly out of nowhere.  You need to use stealth a lot, and for me there are some little mechanics and things that didn't work quite as smoothly as the more recent Far Cry games for instance.  And the enemies take more hits to kill than i would want.

I really need to go back after these most recent patches and expansions to see how much has changed.

Hmm.  I only read one of the books, and wasn't a huge fan of the movie, but it's still kind of a shame that they are making Neil Patrick Harris basically take over with the same look as the Jim Carrey version.

There is an open beta running this weekend, and you can preload it now if you are interested.  I'm definitely going to give it another shot and see if it has improved since the first closed test.

Reminded me a lot of Contact, with elements of Interstellar and Inception.

The right elements from those movies could be really great, so I'm interested.  I think I watched a trailer a while ago, but probably won't seek one out now to avoid spoilers

I am also curious about Mekazoo.  It looks cool, I'll see what Steam reviews look like after a few days.

And the info for those that care:



Quote
Aftermath is set in the days after the Battle for Philadelphia, when the fledgling rebellion hangs in the balance. The inspirational Resistance figurehead Benjamin Walker has been broken by the KPA, and is now broadcasting counter-revolutionary propaganda for the enemy. Support for the embattled Resistance is ebbing away…

As Ethan Brady, you have been tasked to assassinate the man once known as the ‘Voice of Freedom’ for the sake of the Revolution. But instead, you will defy orders and embark on a daring rescue mission.

Aftermath is free to all holders of the Homefront Expansion Pass, and available to purchase separately for $5.99 (regional pricing may vary). It is ready to download now Windows PC via Steam.

A new FREE Resistance Mode Mission - Uncle S.A.M. - has also been added as part of this week’s patch, and is available to all players. Your Squad must counter the KPA’s aerial superiority by deploying S.A.M. launchers, then take out their Air Force’s high command in a deadly strike… Any players returning to Homefront: The Revolution will also find that the recent ‘Performance Patch’ has massively improved the overall experience.

The Revolution has begun and most of Philadelphia is now under Resistance control, but as the fighting intensifies morale is being destroyed by KPA propaganda broadcasts from the captured Resistance leader Walker. Against all odds you must defy orders and attempt to rescue Walker before the Resistance silence him permanently….

 - Play as lone wolf Ethan Brady and defy resistance leadership to liberate Walker from the clutches of the KPA
 - Discover what happened to Walker after his capture and why he is broadcasting against the resistance
 - Cross into new areas of KPA occupied Philadelphia and risk your life for what many believe is a resistance traitor

Double XP - This Weekend!
Plus, alongside the release of our latest Resistance Mode mission, Uncle S.A.M, we will be offering double XP this weekend!

Take part in any mission between Friday 11th 12:01 PM until Monday 14th 12:01 PM.

Another small feature I wish they would add is an "I already own this" button like Amazon has in certain places.  There are lots of games it keeps recommending that I own on console, or Uplay, or Origin, or whatever. 

I don't want to say I'm "Not Interested" because they are games I like so don't want my data and recommendation algorithms messed with, but I don't want to keep seeing them recommended either.

I wish I could be more excited. But ever since they did away with the flash sales it's just been a normal sale period for me.

Yeah, I know what you mean.  That real "hunt for a deal" and "gotta check it every day" doesn't really happen anymore.  I'm kind of hoping they come back with some revamp to bring excitement levels up.
109  Non-Gaming / Steals and Deals / Humble Unreal Bundle on: November 09, 2016, 12:05:51 AM

Pay $1 or more to get:

The Mean Greans: Plastic Warfare

Pay $10 or more to also get:

One specific little touch I like is that in the Recently Updated list it not only shows games in your Library, but also those in your Wishlist.  I often put Early Access titles in my Wishlist so seeing that they are getting updated regularly is nice.

Yeah, filtering VR games would be a help, among other things.

That's in both the old and new design. Games -> Virtual Reality -> deselect headsets you don't own as necessary -> sort by release date gives a great list.

No, I want to filter them all out because I don't own any headset and I'm not going to for the foreseeable future.

I know we had some old thread that kept getting resurrected every time there was a Steam change, but I figured we might get more eyes on this if we started a new topic. 

Check out the new goodies here:  http://store.steampowered.com/about/newstore2016/

What are your thoughts on the changes?  Personally I'm super stoked to have the ability to filter out certain tags, ignore VR games, and other personalization changes.  Also seeing my games that most recently got updates is big.

According to a leaked screenshot, the Steam Autumn Sale will start on November 23 at 9:50am PT and end on November 29 at 10:10am PT, covering your Thanksgiving and Black Friday needs.

The Steam Winter Sale will begin on December 22 at 9:50am PT and end on January 2, 2017, at 10:10am PT.  Happy holidays, I guess.

They have released another free Resistance Mode mission, titled "Uncle S.A.M."  This comes in as a 2.1GB patch on Steam.



Quote
The KPA are in the process of re-establishing their air support across Philadelphia. If we let them get their air force back online, we'll be seriously outgunned and all our hard fought progress could be undone. We've located the site where they are co-ordinating this support. We want the Wraiths to go in and knock out the dusters so that our S.A.M. launchers can come in and deal with the rest of the airforce. Once the S.A.M. launchers have been deployed, we need you to head to the KPA headquarters and assassinate the officials responsible for the air support program.

And the next DLC expansion, Aftermath, will be coming out this Wednesday, Nov 9th.

You forgot one on the PC list which I bought, Planet Coaster: Thrillseeker Edition. Its playable on 11/9 and the Standard ed on the 17th. The 9th release is technically a beta but its the release code as far as I know.

Thanks for the reminder!  I try not to put Early Access games up there (unless I make a mistake), but that one is more like the "ultimate edition get-in-early" thing.

Paladins
Plague Inc
Slayaway Camp
Mark McMorris Infinite Air

Yep, I played all of those to some degree. 

Paladins had a free gems weekend, so I had to win some games to get those. 

Slayaway Camp is really fun.  A good puzzle game covered in the bloody skin of teenage horror movies. 

I am really conflicted about Infinite Air...On the one hand I really like the core controls elements now, but the game itself feels really shallow and not great on consoles.  It's one of those cases where there is potential for infinite content via mountain generations and map editors, but all I really want is a better designed single player campaign.
