It's Ubisoft week at Gamersgate. Today's sale is 75% off RUSE.
It is on sale- its normally $2.99, so its a small sale, but a sale nonetheless.
They have a double pack for cthulu plus some other similar retro rpg. The bundle costs the same as the regular game.
Yeah, it is. My bad.
I beta tested this. Kind of an interesting game, but can often end up being a 'rock, paper, scissors' kind of thing. If you guess wrong on what your opponent is building its going to be a quick game - or even if you guess right, but place your counter wrong, its over.
For example, if your opponent plays a nation that can build fighters/bombers (or paratroopers) fairly quick, your main counter is to go AAA early. However, even if you crank out a good number of AAA guns fast, you may not be able to protect early expansion bases as those units may not be able to drive over to cover that base in time. Also, its easy to over-produce AAA units to counter air then you fall prey to a quick inf/armored car assault, etc.
Typical RTS fare, but done in an interesting way. The 'ruse' factor is kind of interesting, although only a few of them seem to get used in practicality (quicker movement/hiding units and bases/revealing units and bases seem to be the bread and butter here). If you do play this game, of paramount importance is your ability to see hidden units, so units with a 'scout' feature (some inf and armored cars, or spotter planes) are of extreme importance if you want to do well.
GamersGate has a sale on Rome & Medieval 2 Total War.
Medieval 2: Total War Gold is 87% off for $3.98.
Rome: Total War Gold (includes Barbarian Invasion expansion) is 60% off for $3.98.
Rome: Total War Complete (includes the Alexander expansion as well as Barbarian Invasion, its not really needed for any mods and IMO not a very good expansion) is 60% off for $5.98.
Its the Summer Sale on GamersGate this week!
On all Paradox published titles. Everything is 50% off.
The usual Paradox games are of course included, including the expansions (so now is a great time to pick up Heir to the Throne and Divine Wind if you have not gotten them for EUIII already), Mount&Blade, Sword of the Stars, Magicka, and numerous other titles.
Batman: Arkham Asylum: GotY is on mid-week madness (steam) for $7.50. I had a blast with that game and I would highly recommend it.
Pretty much the same Paradox deals on Impulse right now.
I no longer shop through them, though. I'm waiting for my free copy of Fallen Enchantress (assuming SD only deliver through Impulse) then it's good riddance.
Bluh, I played the Fire and Sword demo and I just don't like it at all, much rather play Sword of Damocles for Warband
Humble Bundle 3 is a pay what you want deal. You get 5 indie games (VVVVVVVVVV, Cogs, Crayon Physics Deluxe, Hammerfight, And Yet it Moves) and can decide on how much of your money goes to the developers or a charity.
The games can also be activated on steam.
Edit: Also you get to play Minecraft for free until the 14th if you buy the bundle! What a deal!
I bought it. Gave it to my girlfriend's kid. His favorite was Trine from the other bundle pack.
Yes we know, we've already had a thread on the HIB.
Vampire: Bloodlines is 75% off (£3.74 in the UK) on Steam. On the off chance anyone doesn't have it, get it now. Even with the various unofficial patches, it's still flawed and occasionally buggy, but despite that it's one of the best RPGs ever made.
Its also been available on Good Old Games for at least a year iirc.
Nope. Only Redemption, the predecessor, is on gog.
Free DinoD-Day demo for the weekend. Takes about 15 minutes to download. Question: Is it anywhere as good as Day of Defeat?
It isn't that hard to make a game better than DoD (Source anyway) So probably. I haven't tried it yet though because it takes longer than 15 minutes to download for some of us.
EDIT: A couple of people I know who have it liked it.
Metacritic says no. 53% critic, 3.6 user for Dino D Day vs. 80% critic, 9.2 user for Day of Defeat Source. Non-Source DoD is at 79% critic, 9.6 user.
Although if it only takes 15 minutes, then by all means, try it. Might like it.
I have now tried it, and in my humble opinion, they have successfully made a WW2 shooter that is worse than Day of Defeat.
