A bit O/T.
When did Halloween become a South African thing?
I hear it on the radio, see these type of articles and ads.
First Black Friday (Which has roots in the US).
Soon we'll start having all their weird notions and connotations.
Thanks giving, 4th of July.
Really irks me a bit.
Great game. I really enjoyed the bit I played.I bought Divinity: Original Sin 2 and the artbook. Pretty good discount atm.
Do you have to spend them separately?No thanks got two $10 vouchers on Epic Games to spend.
I'm a fan too. I played Source endlessly when I was younger.No thanks that will always be Half Life. Best game ever...
The new Tony Hawk?Yes grabbing Tony Hawk and something else.
On topic, got a mail from Steam regarding Doom Eternal being on sale (its on my wishlist), but even so, at R450 (or whatever it was) is still a bit steep.
Valve will need to ramp things up to stay relevant though.The days of epic Steam sales are long gone. Valve made no secret about their desire to move away from a setup where gamers waited until periodic fire sales to buy the majority of their games.

I see a major exodus in the coming months from normal gaming to services like Xbox game pass.
The same was said about streaming video and audio services. Not good enough, won't work. Here we are today.Microsoft's Store is absolutely terrible on a technical level and offers virtually zero competition for standalone game purchases. For Valve their main concern should be the Epic Store. Better USD pricing for consumers and a very strong incentive for publishers.
They won't drop it past 50% until they have maxed out the DLC, they are still milking the season pass which was recently released on Steam. The Autumn sale is a better bet which is during the Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend and whatever that week is called again in the US. It will most likely be discounted 60-75% during the Winter Sale at the year-end where at the time Doom Eternal will be a matured title.

Paying a low monthly fee for access to premium games will become the norm.
Irrespective of publisher or developer insentives.
Epic has a bad wrap with many international gamers. I've seen people boycott Epic in droves.
The same for EA.
Our perspectives of gaming services differ a lot in comparison to other first world countries.
