Been playing NI Oh and liking it more than i did on PS4, I think the shorter loading times are managing my tilt.  :)

game can be absolutely fucking bullshit sometimes though lmao, but it sorta levels out as it goes on and you get better gear/OP spells and skills

Will PC Building Simulator prepare me for building a PC in the same way Hitman trained me to become an international assassin?

Quote
Were excited to announce the initial rollout of the Epic Achievements system is on its way, including a set of tools for developers to activate platform Achievements quickly and easily. That means that starting next week, you can begin collecting XP by earning Epic Achievements in select games.

Over the last year, weve worked closely with some of our development partners to bring Epic Achievements to life. Thanks to their help, once we launch, you can start racking up XP in these games: Rocket League, Hades, Pillars of Eternity, Kena,  Zombie Army 4, Alan Wake Remastered, and more. Were working to get these tools to more developers, so you can expect to see Epic Achievements popping up in your favorite games later this year.

How do XP and Epic Achievements work?
Epic Achievements are sorted into four tiers based on their XP value, with the Platinum Achievement being awarded upon earning 1000 XP in a game. Here are the Epic Achievement tiers and the amount of additional XP you get for the Achievement:

Bronze = 5-45 XP
Silver = 50-95 XP
Gold = 100-200 XP     
Platinum = 250 XP

Guild of Dungeoneering is harder than I expected. It's oddly relaxing at the same time. I'm confused.

Shenmue 3 is at about what I'd be prepared to pay for it for the next 4 hours or so

Also looks like they're doing a freebie a day for the next couple of weeks

I don't think I've even installed a single game I've gotten for free from EGS. Not expecting Shenmue 3 to break that streak

It's an Armored Core knock off that is only a few years old and still catches a good price. It's also a decent game if you're into that stuff.

it sounds great, was certainly interested on switch but put it off once i found out there was a pc port in the works. saw it on the store and came here to see if anyone had posted it's coming :p looks fantastic and much less janky than the last AC game i played. only games i've played on EGS are metro exodus and rocket league lel. finally a free title im actually keen on

I'm bummed I missed In Sound Mind. Looks kind of decent.

But will probably end up in a Humble Bundle pretty soon. That's where these free Epic/Game Pass games usually end up sooner or later.

My post above is slightly wrong, Rogue Legacy apparently is new to EGS, I thought it had been free before. I really like it despite its flaws so I recommend it!

Football Manager 2022 also has a free weekend and sale if you like that kind of thing.

Apparently widely influenced by Sony's VR interests. That's a hefty chunk of change.

Just Die Already is from the designers of Goat Simulator, looks like some stupid fun for a bit. The video of it reminds me a little of State of Emergency for some reason.

Prey (and Jotun) will be free next week, Prey was their Christmas Day freebie so while it's been free before it was only for one day.

Prey includes the Mooncrash DLC, btw. It's a proto-Deathloop (and some say it's a better realization of the idea).
