I know the title might attract some attention from mods, as I am aware discussing illegal activities is against the rules.

What I want to know is, why don't you pirate games?

I have a friend who just can not understand why I pay for games. Every time he asks me when I am going to play a certain game, I tell him I'll get it when I can afford it or when it's on sale and he seems incredulous. I've tried explaining that I like buying games as a way of building a collection as well as just supporting the developers and industry that I enjoy so much.

Is there anything I can tell him?

I finished 2033 Redux recently and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Mind you, I played the Spartan mode because I'm not a huge fan of the survival aspect. It was an immersive, interesting shooter with a morality system that isn't (at all) obvious.

Jumped right into Last Light afterward and lost myself in it just as easily. They're fantastic games in a genre too full of CoD clones, if you ask me (and not Dan Ryckert).

@gaspower: From GMG I've bought Thief for $5.85 and Company of Heroes 2 for $7.99 and on Nuuvem I grabbed Sine Mora for ~$0.75 and MGS: Revengeance for ~$5.00

So, I didn't read your post (tldr) but I'm assuming the question is what game would like to play again, for the first time.

My answer to that is Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic. I'm a big Star Wars fan despite a lot of the awful stuff out there with that name on it and I think that's part of why I would pick this game; realizing just how much I actually liked it and the story they told in a universe that I thought they had already squeezed the life out of...

I still love going back and playing the game, but I really miss those feelings that it evoked the first time through.

My 3GB 780 averages 73 FPS in the benchmark with the same exact settings, but... in game performance is not so hot; it drops below 30 too frequently to be playable (IMO).

With textures set to High it averages 80 and doesn't go below 43 FPS.

My 780 has a 1240Mhz core clock and a conservative 6750Mhz memory clock. The 780 Ti is a beast of a card though, with more memory bandwidth.

I got to level 2 in New Monarchy pretty fast just by doing bounties in the crucible... I did one one weekly heroic strike which gives you, I think, 250 rep.

Doing Queen's Wrath missions has a very high chance of giving you a legendary item (helm or chest).

Just turn it into a Diablo expansion...

I am level 23 and have had 5 purple engrams so far (2 from crucible rewards and 3 from spending about half an hour at that loot cave).

One turned out to be a legendary fusion rifle, another was a legendary class item and the rest were just rares.

I have two DS4s and they have different material on the sticks. One seems a lot more durable than the other; so maybe Sony is attempting to fix this issue on newer controllers.

With that being said, I recommend replacing them with XOne sticks. I find them more tactile.
