Assassin's Creed Valhalla headed to Steam Alongside other Ubisoft titles too.

https://www.eurogamer.net/assassins-creed-valhalla-headed-to-steam

You know EGS is fucked when even Ubisoft is coming back

Doesn't mean I'll be buying any Ubishat games till they get rid of Uplay tho

Them coming back, but still wanting to enforce their DRM is kind of telling that they are still that grumpy stroppy kid that knows they fucked up, but still doesn't want to apologise for making a scene.

The fact they want to force Ubi connect on Steam also tells me that they cannot survive on their own, because Ubi connect isn't anywhere as popular nor memorable as Steam is (also huge lacking of mod support and other viable features doesn't help their client at all).

Still, I'm sticking to my 3 strike rule, which Ubisoft broke around 3 yrs ago, so I'm never really going to buy from them ever again, just like I did with gearbox, SE (Tripwire is coming up next with one more exclusivity deal to go before I block them).

The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim gets an 8K Texture Pack for ice surfaces
https://www.dsogaming.com/mods/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-gets-an-8k-texture-pack-for-ice-surfaces/
Modder ‘Bionic’ has released an 8K Texture Pack for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim for ice surfaces. According to the modder, this pack covers caves, glaciers and icicles.
Going into more details, the pack features IMR meshes that are customized to work with the new highly detailed textures. Additionally, it has new experimental meshes featuring no seams and randomized details.

Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales gets a Batman Arkham-like camera mod
https://www.dsogaming.com/mods/marvels-spider-man-miles-morales-gets-a-batman-arkham-like-camera-mod/
The first mods for Marvel’s Spider-Man: Miles Morales have started appearing online. And, in our opinion, the most interesting mod right now is the following one which introduces a Batman Arkham-like over-the-shoulder camera viewpoint.
Created by modder ‘Maxie Zeus’, this mod makes Miles Morales feel like a Batman Arkham game. The mod achieves this by getting the camera closer to our main protagonist.
>> Besides and 8 minutes long video of the mod, the article also lists another two mods to unlock suits, skills, etc.

We liked the supernatural immersive sim Weird West quite a bit when it arrived earlier this year, and now it's even better thanks to the addition of mod support in the latest patch. A handful of mods are already available for the game, including one that changes it from an isometric perspective to first person.

Skyrim's tiny head mod is a crime against the laws of god and man alike
https://www.pcgamer.com/skyrims-tiny-head-mod-is-a-crime-against-the-laws-of-god-and-man-alike/
Have you ever wondered what it would be like if Skyrim were really fucked up? Just like disastrously so?
Now you can experience just such a thing, as the mod "Cursed Skyrim - Hold the Fuck Up" will give to you an experience of outrageously long-lived RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim where everyone's head is real small. It is—to be direct—a crime against the laws of gods and men alike.

The legal war over Disco Elysium reaches Disco Elysium levels of complexity
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-legal-war-over-disco-elysium-reaches-disco-elysium-levels-of-complexity/
Something is rotten in the state of Revachol. This year has seen the gradual unfurling of a bitterly ironic real-world tale, one in which the creators of perhaps the best PC game ever appear to have been systemically cut out of the company they co-founded, Disco Elysium studio ZA/UM, and are now fighting for it in the courts.
>> And, if you're interested, here's the initial pitch that started it.

Darktide's 1.0.7 patch makes progress on crashes, lets you fix your ugly face

(...)
The patch notes for version 1.0.7 identify six different types of crashes that have now been purged: matchmaking crashes, cutscene alt-tabbing crashes, falling-out-of-bounds crashes, crashes caused by starting a mission with a specific feat equipped, crashes caused by certain weapon traits, and multiple crashes caused by the Beast of Nurgle. As if we didn't have enough reasons to hate Beasts of Nurgle already.

Like a mighty tachanka, Men of War 2's development trundles on implacably regardless of the obstacles before it. The WW2 RTS, which comes from Ukrainian studio Best Way, had its development interrupted by Russia's invasion earlier this year, but the studio has returned with a new trailer showcasing, well, the Second World War, mostly.

The peoples' choice for the GJA PC game of the year may surprise you
https://www.pcgamer.com/the-peoples-choice-for-the-gja-pc-game-of-the-year-may-surprise-you/
Yesterday saw the 40th annual Golden Joystick Awards and, broadly speaking, Elden Ring had an extremely good night: here's the full list of winners. One of the things that sets the Joysticks apart is that almost all of the categories are decided by public vote, with over three million people casting ballots this year. And when it came to the PC Game of the Year category, democracy triumphed over pizazz.

After selling a $200 game bundle for cents, Microsoft realises it made a mistake
https://www.pcgamer.com/after-selling-a-dollar200-game-bundle-for-cents-microsoft-realises-it-made-a-mistake/
After accidentally selling people a Forza Horizon bundle worth £170/$200 for 61p (about 70 cents), Microsoft has begun to realise that it might have messed up. Players who picked up the games at their historically-low price last week are finding the games missing from their library, but at least they're getting their precious pennies refunded too.

NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090 is outselling the RTX 4080 on eBay by a factor of 3.4

Makes sense really, if you have $1200 to spend, you have $1600 to spend. Too bad it costed as much as it did cause it could have been a great upgrade.

Free upgrade?, holy shit I thought pubs forgot uploading files on PC was a thing, instead of charging extra like everyone else was doing after Skyrim SE/Bioshock 1-2 were given out for free.

planetarian ~the reverie of a little planet~ will be removed from sale on the 1st of December.

Some good deals I saw

Need for Speed Hot Pursuit Remastered at 90%



I still haven't played The Witcher 3 and, at this point, I'll wait this couple of weeks left until the update launches to even think about playing it.

I wonder what those QoL improvements will consist of.

Well I do know that they brought on Halk Hogan onto their team, so he was working on giving them all the texture improvements he'd made over the years and likely some more work. They'll probably have tweaked some quests here and there/bug fixes, but outside of that I'm not sure what else they could add as QoL (though that auto oil your blades mod was super handy to use, so I'd hope they added that in, since going into inv/applying oils/leaving inventory was a bit annoying to do before every encounter).
