and I was continuing the memeing by mentioning that less than 10% of players got the achievement, implying the 5 min story intro is somehow incredibly difficult to complete. :joy:

Because Steam achievements only glow like that if less than 10% of players get them:
glow

Or, at least that’s what I thought, but I just checked the global achievements for Shatterline and saw that almost 2/3rds of players got the achievement, so now I don’t know why it’s glowing like that. (maybe because it’s the only one, and thus technically still has the lowest-achievement rate?)

nah there’s lots of bugs where it shows u a low percentage on the achievement in your profile, but then when u go to the global rates you see a much higher number, just another steam feature

I’m really about to say 'fuck it , i dont need to eat ’ and buy Horizon Zero Dawn and Days Gone on steam. Both at 19.99€ currently. So freaking tempting…

Horizon zero dawn is one of the games on my list to justify buying a new GPU for. Unfortunately that takes the price of it up from 20€ to something like 3000€ as at this point I need to upgrade my whole system.

Depending on what kind of system you are after it is more like ~1500€ to build a very capable 1440p gaming system these days . At least around here. But i mean prices for components are pretty much same everywhere.

Swedish taxes brings that up a good notch, also I’m not looking at a currently competent budget machine. I’ll be building something that’ll last me another 10 years, as I did now more than 10 years ago.

Currently awaiting the new AMD 7000 series CPUs which will be launching a new socket, which should give the system good upgrade potential. If the wild claims being made about them holds up upon 3rd party reviews they seem like a pretty good choice to build something future proof upon.

Yeah, i actually bought Horizon Zero Dawn this time (on Humble got an extra dollar off there, lol) and decided to wait with Days Gone to hopefully get that at 75% off some day. I’m obviously not going to be playing both at the same time anyways. I’m already struggling as is being halfway through Mafia, having started Dishonored 2, being a few levels in Hitman 2, finally, and having installed Doom Eternal, apparently to not play it right now, lol, and still hopeful to keep playing Snowrunner some time as well, and then i guess it’s a good thing Shatterline doesn’t work for me, and then there’s season 2 of The Cycle Frontier coming soon… honestly, there’s too much games, and there’s too much new games, and they come way too fast. Like 80% of them insta die cuz the market’s completely saturated.

I think I’ll wait for Horizon Zero Dawn to be free on Epic Games, heh. I’ve seen a gameplay a long time ago and it didn’t catch my attention that much.

My brain hates me. One particular word I’ve been having a hard time remembering for some time now is 支度 and in an effort to remedy that I figured that it sounds kind of like that famous Japanese mushroom and the structure contains two little mushroom looking things in it. So here I am now looking at these characters at a 4 month interval and I’m asking myself what was the name of that mushroom again…

My brain: “Matsutake!”

(No the word is shitaku, kinda similar to shiitake, means preparation. I don’t know why it’s so hard to remember. Might be because I already know two other words for “preparation” 準備 Junbi and 用意 youi the first one being the only one I hear and see used with any regularity.)

Booh, yah! Or something…
I crushed my “pie in the sky, lol no but seriously?”-bonus goal this summer of managing a 45km trip by bicycle. Managed to exceed 50km this evening. Partly due to getting lost. My legs are pretty well worn at this point, but not to the point of noodles.

Um. I nearly did 25 km travel in Pokemon Go one week lately. Some by paw, some by vehicle. Got too exhausted to reach theclast 3 km milestone. A bicycle is better than the under powered paw step.

Just grabbed gta 5 and days gone because I found some good deals. I’ll probably grab rdr 2 and star wars jedi fallen order next as soon as deals pop up. It’s nice to have a new current gen pc to play some of my top wishlisted games.

The net is lagging and I’m losing my nuts. Trying again

So. Anyone September Prime Amazon games? Shadow of Mordor as GOG key for example. Let me know before October 2nd or nothing will be visible or claimable, myrr.

I’m sure there is a Twitch or Prime thread but I can’t find it and truly too frustrated with the half loading pages etc to keep trying. Plus, still restricted to tablet only, and it’s no spring chicken itself.

It seems the Triad have heard of the old mafia tactics of hiding bodies in concrete at a building site. Unfortunately it seems the building site they chose was an overpass, not an office building.

Thanks @blomvik. I wish Amazon just had a double confirm option since it’s apparently policy NOT to give refunds.
