NVIDIA Launches Summer GeForce Game Bundle - Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Painby Ryan Smith on July 23, 2015 7:50 PM EST

As the month of July begins to wind down, so does NVIDIA’s existing Two Times the Adventure Game Bundle. With Batman: Arkham Knight having been something of a technical flop on the PC, no doubt NVIDIA is happy to finally move on to something more enticing for buyers, as the company is announcing that they have once again refreshed their game bundle promotion for GeForce products.
Launching today is a new bundle for the summer, which NVIDIA is calling the “Game Like A Boss” bundle, and is built around the forthcoming Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain. The Phantom Pain is the latest in the long, long line of Metal Gear games, and the follow-up to last year’s Metal Gear Solid V prologue game, Ground Zeroes. Meanwhile, although an NVIDIA bundle game, The Phantom Pain is not a GameWorks game and won’t feature any of NVIDIA’s effects libraries, though the company is quick to note that it will work with SLI, DSR, and the company’s other baseline features.
Like the previous Two Times bundle, the Phantom Pain bundle is for the bulk of NVIDIA’s 900 series desktop lineup, and once again covers some of NVIDIA’s mobile parts as well. The GTX 960, GTX 970, GTX 980, and GTX 980 Ti are included in the bundle on the desktop, and on the mobile side the GTX 980M and GTX 970M are included as well. Meanwhile the GTX Titan X will remain absent, as NVIDIA more often than not NVIDIA excludes them from bundles, as is the case here.
|NVIDIA Current Game Bundles|
|GeForce GTX Titan X||None|
|GeForce GTX 980 Ti||Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain|
|GeForce GTX 980/970||Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain|
|GeForce GTX 960||Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain|
|GeForce GTX 750/750Ti||None|
|GeForce GTX 980M/970M||Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain|
|GeForce GTX 965M/800M Series||None|
Finally, as always, these bundles are being distributed in voucher from, with retailers and etailers providing vouchers with qualifying purchases. So buyers will want to double check whether their purchase includes a voucher for either of the above deals. Checking NVIDIA’s terms and conditions, the program is valid in all regions except China, with the program scheduled to run through September 1st (or while supplies last). As for The Phantom Pain itself, the game is being distributed through Steam and is currently scheduled for release on September 15th.

rom0n - Saturday, July 25, 2015 - linkI LOL'd so hard. You can also read it as to game comes with "Phantom Pain".
anubis44 - Friday, July 24, 2015 - linkStop feeding the Green Goblin.
D. Lister - Saturday, July 25, 2015 - linkYes AT, you must completely ignore the company with >75% market share, and hence cut down significantly on your readership, just to feed anubis44's personal bias. :thumbsup:
anubis44 - Sunday, July 26, 2015 - linkAs P.T. Barnum said, there's one born every minute. If large numbers of people want to keep giving their money to a company that wants to screw them over, then they're free to do so. I'm only asking for people to reconsider.
D. Lister - Wednesday, July 29, 2015 - linkTsk... EVERY company wants to screw you over. Also beware, they say moral high ground is the last refuge of a fanboy.
Oxford Guy - Saturday, July 25, 2015 - linkIs there an assembly line that churns out these old grizzled scarred homely "heroic" male lead characters?
anubis44 - Sunday, July 26, 2015 - linkWould you prefer them to be young, inexperienced, effiminate and pretty-looking "cowardly" male lead characters?
Oxford Guy - Thursday, July 30, 2015 - linkBecause if you don't look like the backside of bus you're one of those horrifying effeminate cowards.
reininop - Sunday, July 26, 2015 - linkIn this instance, this scarred homely male lead was the original hero. I'm pretty sure he started the trend.
londedoganet - Monday, July 27, 2015 - linkWell, Big Boss looked like Red October-era Sean Connery in the original Metal Gear (i.e. bearded, but 'shuave') and Solid Snake looked like Terminator-era Michael Biehn (i.e. not grizzled). In Metal Gear 2, Big Boss stayed Sean Connery, but Solid Snake changed faces to Lethal Weapon-era Mel Gibson (still not grizzled). Even in MGS, Snake was clean-shaven and unscarred; it was in MGS2, four games in, that Kojima decided that Snake should look like Escape From New York-era Kurt Russell.
