Let him play Mafia 2 instead so he can learn some history... won't he be surprised when he finds his first Playboy pinup?

Yeah, I just realised this is totally not for kids - he can play it when he is older. Still, since it's now installed I guess I can have a try at it!

I'm surprised they never made an online version of Mafia 2 or even 3. They have these amazing open worlds for us to run amok in... join a mafia family, undertake gang wars for territory and control of the city.

On that note, I'm not so sure about Breakpoint now... I looked up a few reviews and it looks more like The Division but in the world of Ghost Recon with vehicles and more open landscape. The player hub where other online players can be found doesn't sound like my thing. I liked Wildlands more where we have a team and can just run around the open world, enjoying the scenery as we like.

Pretty good Cities Skylines Humble Bundle...

https://www.humblebundle.com/games/cities-skylines

Base game is in the tier 1 package if that's all you're after.

Are the DLCs worth it? Partner likes those kind of games but Paradox is crazy with the amount of DLC.

As I understand, they make the game harder since there's more things you need to manage.

I've actually yet to play Cities: Skylines despite owning it for quite a while now so I'm not the best person to ask. There's a few free DLCs that you can get on steam already which may be sufficient. The deal is available for another 13 days so you could always just get the base game and if your partner enjoys it and wants some more complexity and options (like creating Unis, industries, mass transit, etc) you can always buy the higher tiers before the bundle disappears.

BTW, they've added a few more DLCs into the bundle now.

Total Annihilation Commander Pack free from GOG: https://www.gog.com/#giveaway

The Uncertain: Last Quiet Day free on Steam: https://store.steampowered.com/app/4069 ... Quiet_Day/

edit: The irony for me is that after 23 years of reading about the game (to the point where I knew more about the game than friends who owned it back in the day), owning spiritual successors such as Supreme Commander 2 and Planetary Annihilation, I finally own Total Annihilation. Thank you GOG! And yes, I'm still playing Diablo 3 and Mortal Kombat mobile more.

itch.io has a Bundle For Racial Justice and Equality, with proceeds going to legal defense and bail funds. Contains over 1,600 games at this point. Obviously you won't like all of them, but it's only $5! https://itch.io/b/520/bundle-for-racial ... d-equality

But do we need to enter each code individually? :P

Not that I play these indie games but a freebie is a freebie. Indie gala adds on a free game every couple of days. Good for installing on netbooks/tablet 2 in 1s methinks (though I'd probably prefer to stick on some oldies from the 90s still)...

This is a good one! (esp for Disco to practice on his fighting games)

Injustice: Gods Among Us is free on PS4, X Box and Steam:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2427 ... e_Edition/

https://store.playstation.com/en-au/pro ... ICEULTIMAT

https://marketplace.xbox.com/en-AU/Prod ... 0257520829

EDIT: I grabbed it on PS4 anyway using the website since I have a PS account... maybe one day I'll get a cheap PS4 when the PS5 is out... I'll have games like the Nathan Drake Collection, Journey, and Injustice to play.

RNGesus isn't liking me lately...

- didn't get anything useful from my 6000+ blood shards I've been banking up in Diablo 3.
- 3 weeks I've been spending 2100 souls per week on MK mobile gold card packs and with a 1 in 21 chance for Grandmaster Sub Zero, I can't get him to get that card up to Fusion X

I have started playing Guns of Glory on mobile though... part of a deal to net me 5800 souls in MK mobile if I get a level 18 castle in 27 days... I'm level 12 with 20 days more to go and the build times is up to 1 day per level.

For those not looking at the D3 thread these days, you can claim the Prime Evil Wings for the D2 20th Anniversary by logging in and starting up a game instance! They're modeled after Baal and look pretty mean on the WD, Necro and some Barb and DH transmogs.

Can do!

If you're on OzBargain, you can run a search for Lara Croft Go and set it as an alert. That way, if I happen to be on holidays at the time with limited net access, you've got a safety net.

Don't set up an alert for 'Epic' though if you're after 'Epic Store' free releases... the word 'epic' is used in so many posts.
