I actually still have to finish Wolfenstein TNO, which I bought about a month ago. I had started it, then the COD WW2 beta came out, then that put me in the mood to play BF1. Then the Battlefront 2 beta came out and then went back to BF1 again. Pretty much just been playing BF1 recently, but I do want to finish the Wolfenstein games. I also played through Rise of the Tomb Raider from the last Humble monthly.

What's everyone playing lately or picking up for the fall season? It's been a good year for PC releases with more big releases coming up this month and next. I can't wait for Wolfenstein this Friday.
Star Wars Battlefront II. I'm also interested in Divinity: Original Sin II, which has gotten universal critical acclaim (Gamespot gave it a perfect 10). I have the original game, and haven't even played it though. I'm so bad at doing that. My Steam games list is too long.

I've been playing D:OS II and its pretty great now that its been patched up a bit. Much better story than the first game too. The amount of sequence breaking you can do in it is hilarious and I love the combat system.

The rest of my time is split between the SNES Classic and the Switch. Coming up I would like to play the new Wolfenstein game.

I was meaning to check out the first Divinity OS when it was brought up in this thread way back and I remember Redmask having good things to say about it then but after hearing how much better D:OS II is, especially in regards to the story, I'll probably just skip ahead to the sequel. Quite a few people on my steam list have been playing it lately and I've heard nothing but good things. I've also heard great things about Prey and want to check that out too.

Highly recommend finishing TNO dude. Was my fav SP FPS up until DOOM. I like them both equally for different reasons. TNO is amazing for its story and atmosphere

I have had that you don't need to play the first Divinity to understand the sequel, as it is set centuries later (yet their technology advancement hasn't progressed at all lol), so that makes it easier to just play the sequel.

There are some similar RPGs that came out this year like Pillars of Eternity, Torment: Tides of Numenera, and Tyranny, that all got great reviews. They are all party-based RPGs that have a similar aesthetic and gameplay to Baldur's Gate, one of (if not the) greatest RPG of all time. I loved BG back in the day, and own the enhanced versions too.

Do you mean Ryse or Rise of the tomb raider? Wolfenstein 1 is often $$5-10 on humble, steam etc. TNC is $35 on cdkeys right now. Haven't seen any particularly good deals on Destiny and PUBG aside from the usual $3-$5 discount

Rise of the Tomb Raider, missed the Humble Bundle last month.

How about Shadows of War?

Looking to get back into gaming.

Any anticipation for the Steam Fall Sale or are they lacklustre now?

ROTTR 20 Year edition is $20, Shadow Of War+DLC $41 on cdkeys right now. Not likely to be a better deal on either game anytime soon tbh. Actual Steam sales have been awful for 3-4 year now. Humble, GMG, gamersgate, bundle stars/Fanatical etc frequently have better deals on older titles than Steam. Cdkeys has the best deals on new games and big publisher titles that rarely go on sale

What are most of you guys using for controllers?

Is the Blueooth X1 controller better than the wireless X1 controller?

I've grown accustom to the Steam Controller for most games with a 360 controller as backup for the odd occasion the Steam controller isn't supported or doesn't work well. Mainly only use my 360 pad for platformers and fighting games which I rarely play anyways.

I think the wireless X1 controller requires you to buy a seperate dongle to connect to a pc. The Bluetooth X1 controller will connect through Bluetooth.

My trusty wired X360 controller was my go to PC gamepad for ages until the joysticks broke. Now I use the controller that came with my Xbox One S. Just hook it up via bluetooth or USB cable and you're good to go. EZ PZ.

I believe all Xbox one controllers can be connected to a PC via micro-usb cable with the latest windows drivers. Only the Xbox One S generation controllers have both bluetooth and wireless. Not even the Xbox Elite controller has bliuetooth.

Are multiple controllers supported on the same bluetooth adapter? Part of the reason I stick with 360 controller is because it's super easy to connect multiple controllers to the 1 reciever
