    In the last few years there was no Radeon card on the market which was reasonably priced, thanks to mining. That's why the GTX 1050 Ti was one of the most popular cards.

    OTOH it's pretty easy to pick up a decent card used by a miner for cheap. Make sure the warranty is covered for at least a few years.

    That's a pretty big caveat to your argument.

    It's their new tactic to combat the Epic Store, take some features away and then be like "keep buying on Epic's store and we'll take more." If Borderlands 3 is a hit on Epic Store then offline mode sleeps with the fishes.

    Yesterday Valve nuked the review bombing of Borderlands 2. This was the first time they did this after they announced their new policy about review bombings. Thanks to that the review score is untouched on the store, although you can still see the reviews at the bottom of the page.

    Technically you can change your personal settings so the reviews don't get censored, it just defaults to censoring it.

    I'd like to hear a citation on that, from what I gather their team is still 10-15.

    Can't find the tweet now. Someone (@HL_Inside, @ValveTime, @LambdaGen...) liked it, and that's how I saw it. Now I can't find it. But I found this:

    Sorry, I thought I would score a bunch of brofists, but look what I've done... :(

    Why do you even need 2 people in the TF2 team? That's one guy to pick the coolest hats from the user submissions, and another guy to decide on the price for each?

    Dead Cells definitely set a new standard for early access that very few others are going to be able to live up to, which will make it more challenging in general.

    Risk of Rain 2 is selling like hot cakes even a week after the "free bonus copy" deal is over.

    And look at the rush to get the privilege of owning Anno 1800 on Steam.

    #10 - Grand Theft Auto V
    #9 - Sekiro Preorder (Asia) (Looks like this was available till April 9th?)
    #8 - Outward
    #7 - Anno 1800
    #6 - Totally Accurate Battle Simulator
    #5 - Anno 1800
    #4 - Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice
    #3 - PLAYERUNKNOWN'S BATTLEGROUNDS
    #2 - The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Game of the Year Edition
    #1 - Risk of Rain 2

    Also Geralt's bathtub video is still bringing money to CDPR.
