    World of Assassination has been my recent obsession, the murder simulation puzzle box style of game is super addicting and very rewarding to learn. The kills are really creative, and it's endlessly replayable to score chase, or play new contracts, or the new(not anymore but still) Freelancer mode. For less than $30 I think it's a total steal, honestly.

    Yes for sure! Yeah I realized shortly after posting that maybe it's not really in the spirit of the question, but I figured it might help someone else looking at this thread too so I left it up!...

    If y'all are looking for a grind too, I'd suggest Monster Hunter Rise (surprise surprise) for something deep to get into, with a lot of content and once y'all get good at it, it's easy to kinda just shoot the shit and have fun.

    It's a bit of an open-area Doom-like immersive sim from New Blood, the devs of Ultrakill! I played a bit, it's pretty fun so far! Price goes up with every episode they release I think, and should end at about 20ish bucks.

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/548430/Deep_Rock_Galactic/

    One of my personal favorites, it's incredible and a pretty small game, size wise. Would recommend with friends, but solo is a perfectly adequate experience.

    GamersGate has Resident Evil 4 Remake for $21.59 with code NORMALDAYINEUROPE:
    https://www.gamersgate.com/product/resident-evil-4/

    One of my favorite games of all time, and the remake is just as good. I think the first month it came out I put in 50 hours on it easily, it's great for replayability and pseudo-speedrunning.

    Note: the site is approved at /r/GameDeals and I think it's a historical low. (ITAD says otherwise, but I'm like 90% sure it was for the original game and not the remake)

    Marvel's Midnight Suns is free on EGS this week:
    https://store.epicgames.com/en-US/p/marvels-midnight-suns

    It's a really good game, I enjoyed it a lot, but it definitely feels like two seperate games with the life sim part and then the combat parts. I think the life-sim parts tried to be like Persona but weren't nearly as interesting to me, and the combat wasn't as flashy as P5R was. Still a good game worthy of your time, especially at the price of free!

    Just wanted to post this site to maybe act as a megathread for all the game reveals that are happening this period of not-E3! I will be away for most of it so I won't be able to post individual threads for things I'm excited for, but if there's a Silksong announcement I will be online for that the instant I see it.

    I remember watching a video essay about how horror reflects the general fear of the society that consumes it (i.e. zombie movies reflecting the fear of incompetent government and being attacked from within post 9/11). I wonder what his analysis would be for liminal horror being a new trend.

    Just a soft reminder that at least skimming the article before commenting is good Internet etiquette :) also the comment that you replied to also outlined it.

    Well, it doesn't look like it matters too much if you're not building a new desktop with the 300 series AI APU's which is fine? Since they look like laptop CPU's anyways. The new desktop parts are still compatible with Windows 10.
