Where did you get dauntless from, mini? It isn't coming up when I search on the steam app.

I also see that Steam is still using USD despite charging GST from today. Lazy, hubristic fuckers.
i looked for it on steam too, its here https://playdauntless.com/ (add another account to the list)

i haven't looked at pricing, i dont think i'll be purchasing any games until fallout 76 anyway

The games I'm eyeing off haven't changed in price, which makes me think that Steam were profiteering from the absence of VAT up until now (since the VAT is always included in the price). So a 59.99USD sold in the US would have included the VAT if sold in America but not in Australia.

My guess anyway...

Tried the intro to Dauntless... very cool. Controls beautifully, gameplay feels great. Only problem was, after the initial town visit, I couldn't get the hunt to work without being booted back to the start menu (after 5 minutes of appearing as though it was going to work).

Definitely worth the download though, will be trying to get a game going over the next few nights.

That is really odd, I haven't had any issues at all with it.
Other than a huge frame rate drop in the town when looking at any person

I got through another couple of hunts last night, good fun swinging dual swords, or a giant hammer around.
Looking forward to getting the axe and polearm unlocked though

Still addicted to Almost a Hero, getting up to around the stage 600 mark now.

Also still playing a lot of MTG Arena, really enjoying the deck building aspect of the game, it has such a more complex meta than Hearthstone, where you feel you have to play a handful of different decks to be successful.

Nearly finished my current XCOM 2 game on Commander, I've found it not much harder than the previous difficulty so I keep checking whether its on the right setting.... just a few story missions to go and it should be complete.

Working on the Ultimate Skyrim modpack at the moment, I've got all of the "required" mods for version 3.4 done, next looking to clone my Mod Organizer profile so I can upgrade it to v4.0 beta 4. Very RP and survival heavy which is right up my alley :)

I found this too. The tactics that seem to work best on normal also work on Commander, funnily enough. Though mistakes on Commander tended to be more severe in consequence, and sometimes point blank shots inexplicably missed a bit more often. But it did feel somewhat similar in difficulty otherwise.

I did the intro last night and then couldn't move when I got into the main hub, all i could do was spin around in circles, might jump in a bit later

I think you need a friend code don't you? Also annoys me there is no app I can just add friends on.

Nintendo, making consoles like it's still 1999.

It isn't so much that I want to rush them, but they released the product over a year ago and they're only now introducing features that should have been part of the initial release, not still on the to do list a year later.

I 100% agree, it would be nice for some of this to be much easier, and better. And they are a company that is big enough to make things like this happen.
I will look at my Switch tonight and see if i can find the friend details / codes.
