Got a 10 kill solo chicken dinner win in Battlegrounds last night. Was amped up! I tried to play much more aggressive with a good load out.

Dropped Military Base and got 2 kills to setup my initial loot. Then dipped out with a car and took my SKS and M4 out to bridge camp. Got another kill on the bridge to complete my loadout (decked out M4 with KAR98 8x scope). Then drove to the middle of the circle which at the time was centered out to the west of Lipovka (a town in the map). Ended being the right move, I played aggressive on top of a hill and took out about 5 people as circles closed to maintain my space. Got down to 10 ppl and I started getting quite nervous. Won a close fight to hold onto the hill I had staked out with a bunch of spray and pray. Finally the circle started pushing to me. Made a positional mistake and nearly paid for it with 3 people alive (me and 2 others) with one guy below me and one guy above me on a hill. Luckily for me the guy up top took out the guy below me, and I used that to charge up the hill towards him and finish it off. I'm sure a lot of this is jibberish to most who would read this, but end game Battlegrounds games, especially one you have already done well in, is a pretty massive adrenaline rush and gets those BPM cranked up. Had to cool down with some Rocket League before going to bed.

You sure about that? I saw three months for $24.99.

Yep, almost pulled the trigger. Double checked all the feeds I follow for VG deals, and they also said 12 months.

I didn't pre-order the game, so I can't until Thursday or so. Watched people on twitch play it though.

anybody here playing Subnautica? I don't do PC gaming, so I have to wait for v1.0 to release on PS4 (I've heard 2018, but no idea if that's accurate), but I've been watching the hell out of it on YouTube. Looks awesome and I really want to play it.

It appears that it's over, but one place I followed said you could order two per order. So, if you placed two orders for two and then another for one, you could have.

I'm enjoying this so far. If the trial (of which I have 7 hours of playtime remaining) keeps going this way, I'll likely buy it and keep playing.
