Same here. 31GB download of War of the Chosen may take forever on my end. Good thing XCOM2 is still playable even when DLC is downloading in the background.

Tried out the Destiny 2 beta. That shit looks real beautiful! I love the personalities, cutscenes and music. Hopefully there's a good story in there with the DLC guys writing it.

Yeah, it looks incredible. Runs well, too.

I went 2560 x 1440 on my 970 and had no problems, weirdness or dips. I need to try out some strikes or pvp (inb4 autocorrect to PCP) to make sure those run as tightly.

2500k processer still, by the way, for those interested.

I've been installing my Logitech G29 + gearshifter on my PC and trying to set it up with Euro Truck Simulator 2, although it's not easy at all, and I'm still figuring it out. I downloaded the Logitech Gaming Software, and will now restart my PC to see if the game will recognize my wheel this time around. Seems like ETS2 doesn't support the new G29 shifter either, which would be a real bummer.

When exactly did you play it? Steam Cloud support was added at the end of October 2015.

Edit: D'oh, I misread your post. You're already aware of that.

I know ;) Well, i didn't meant anything explicitly sexy too, i more interested how they handled relations with companions, if i remember correctly it was very brief in previous Divinity games (except Dragon Commander) and i don't like this, RPG for me is always Exploration and Story first than fighting and using fancy physics mechanics to combine spells.

My theory of the most ideal time to buy is between 30-60 minutes after the bundle has been released. Then the BTA prices is as cheapest

If you intend to buy the complete bundle then it's just stupid to wait :)
And also there is a Steam group where you can split bundles if you only want 1 or 2 games from a bundle

If you want to save a few cents, keep a couple of tabs open on Humble and occasionally refresh whichever tab has the higher BTA. Once it's clear the price is only going up you can still buy it on the cheaper tab at the reduced price.

Not that important. Pretty sure that outside of some gear you'll replace within hours of beginning the game, the rest of the bonuses you get are minor dialogue changes and journal entries. I wouldn't worry about it.

There are a few references to choices you did in the last game. But nothing too important. Going from Witcher 2 to Witcher 3 has bigger consequences, and even those are still really minor.

Thanks for the answers guys. I had no luck with the cloud save but I had a full HD backup in an external drive and managed to get my save file from there.
Just played a few minutes of it and it feels a lot different from the first one, especially the combat. The UI also feels weird for some reason.

The last time I really played soccer games for an extended period was during the SNES era, so I kind of curious to see how these games play nowadays. Will PES be better than Fifa this year?

It's amazing on PC. Mouse controls are also very good. I'd recommend playing it that way or with a steam controller. It goes on sale a lot, so don't pay too much for it.

that is what most people are saying. it seems PES got better every year, and the 2017 version was felt to be better than FIFA, although FIFA still sells way more
