Can't see myself spending 40 bucks on a game that looks like games I played in 1988

Yeah it's all about personal taste. For many gamers, graphics are very important and the game should look fancy and high resolution with crazy good detail. While I appreciate those things, I've come to appreciate good gameplay and mechanics over graphics. I've played enough games that look good, but aren't fun at all. That said, I do appreciate great graphics and enjoy some games that are more focused on that aspect, such as Far Cry 5 and the like.

For a $1? What?

It's $80 at EB.

PC Game Pass, it's $1/month for the 1st month and $5/month for following months. Check out the Windows 10 Store. Honestly it'll probably be half price on boxing day, so getting it from now until then via two months of Game Pass is only $6. $46 is a lot cheaper than $80

My brother's Steam account was stolen today. He's already contacted Steam Support. Anyone have any experience or knowledge with this sort of thing?

 

EDIT: He got his password reset for him about 3 or 4 hours later and has his account again. Lost a good number of in-game valuables from one of his games, but that's it.

Very good game.  A bit too easy though.  I subscribed to Game Pass right after it was introduced.

Did you already beat it? I'm just starting out. If it's too easy I'll do the NG+ on hard (or just a new game if they don't have that). Right now I'm about 3 hours in on Normal, will be playing more today.

Haven't beat it yet.  I'm anal and I talk to every NPC in the game and try to do every side quest available.

 

I equipped heavy armor and helm because the penalties are very light and can easily tank all of the mobs with 2 companions in identical heavy armor/helm.  I also use a modded machine gun which slices through the mobs.

 

Play on the second hardest setting.  If you do the hardest, you'll lose your companions to perma-death if they even so much as fall off of a steep ledge.

I also try to explore everything so I don't miss any good loot. Interesting, the hardest difficulty sounds a lot like Survival from Fallout 4. I usually start off on normal and once I get better stuff and start rolling enemies I'll turn up the difficulty. Do you get more XP from a harder setting? I like when they entice you like that.

Honestly, other than selling junk at vendors and vending machines for "bits" and building parts, it's not really a loot game.  You can concentrate on, and enjoy, the story. 

 

The Mark 2 (MK2) weapons have the same DPS as the MK1's.  The devs either did that on purpose or just got lazy/ran out of time to properly balance items.  You'll see once you start completing quests and the xp and levels start rolling in.

 

Not sure on the XP as I'm still on the late middle part of my first run through of the game on the 2nd hardest setting.
