Title: PSA: Game Discounts
Post by: vinraith on April 28, 2009, 02:49:48 pm
Edit:

Since so many services are running weekly and weekend game discounts these days, I figured we could use this thread as a repository for anything you find and think is worth pointing out. I'll try to drop what I see as the best deals of a given weekend in here for your consideration, everyone else should feel free to do the same.

Original Post follows:
-----

Gamersgate is having a massive 50% off sale on their Ubisoft catalogue. Anyone that missed the equivalent event on Steam (or passed because Steam's kind of a pain) might want to have a look.

It struck me as another overly-generic RTS with too little emphasis on long-term planning.  Many of the features (separate weapon branches for air/land, resource growth, nukes, the "tech" tree) were certainly interesting at the time, but the longevity of it all quickly proved non-existent for me as first one thing, then another would prove over-powered--artillery, then tanks, etc.  If I picked it up again right now, I'd probably enjoy a few skirmish maps, but I'd see no reason to continue to come back to it as opposed to, say, Company of Heroes.

Keep in mind that my impression is based upon the release and the post-release period of about two months.  The expansion and the patches may very well have made the game more fun, but I certainly didn't get my money's worth.

OK, thanks for the summary Hab. I'll probably just pass on it, I've got too many unplayed games in the pile as it is.

Gamersgate has the truly excellent 1701 A.D. Gold edition for 50% off (that's $15 in the US) this weekend if anyone's interested.

Oh, and Defense Grid: The Awakening is $5 on Steam, which is pretty damn tempting IMO.

It's a fun city builder. Emphasis on build. You'll spend most of your time optimizing your logistics of delivering resources to manufacturers.

Combat is largely optional - you can run custom games without any fighting, or you can run a live and let die one (don't expect combat itself to be deep, though - build units, protect convoiys, attack enemies).

I found Anno 1701 great fun sandbox game. If I didn't already own it I would go for this deal. Especially since its the gold edition which will save you the crap of their lousy support.

I adore it. It's basically a colony simulator in roughly the same vein as the Impressions city building series or the like (Caesar 3 and so on) with supply lines and resources and whatnot. It has several additional kinks, though. First, it's island based, so you have to establish shipping lanes (and protect them) to supply your colony with the things it needs. There are AI opponents with whom you can cooperate or war to secure resources. There are natural disasters ala Sim City as well, though you can adjust or deactivate them if you like.

The game is remarkably customizable. In addition to two campaigns worth of scenarios, the real game is in the sandbox mode where you can set up a world to your liking and try to become a dominant economic force.

There's a demo out there if you want to give it a whirl for free, but if you're a fan of city builders it's a pretty safe bet you'd get $15 worth out of it.

Thanks for the feedback. I also just realized/remembered that the multiplayer requires Games for Windows Live, which is further reason to pass. I think I'll let that one slide past, god knows I've got enough games as it is.

There was one I had to input so that it could send data to someone(when I first clicked on the application), then a different one was needed once the program had opened.  The third was for Sunken Dragon, but it still strikes me that three are ridiculous when serial codes are the silliest protection ever.  Also, damn there are a lot of intro videos to this game.  I think I hit escape about 5 times till I got to the main menu.

Steam's Weekend Deal is Call of Duty: World at War for 50% off (that's $25 in the US). Based on the reported length of the SP campaign (~6 hours, generously) and the lack of multiplayer bots I think I'll pass, but it's probably a good deal if you want an adversarial online WW2 shooter.

Instead, I bought Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance, Elven Legacy, and ended up picking up Plants vs. Zombies.

Damn sales and hypnotic flowers. <_<

It's worth 5euro, especially if you were interested in NWN1. I haven't checked out the modding community at all, but if it's anything like the first game's, you should be able to extend your value.

Assuming anyone else here besides me is playing console games, a lot of Blockbuster locations got in shipments of used, disc-only games for Xbox 360, PS2, and original Xbox.  The games seem to be in good condition, and are priced as follows:

Xbox 360: $6.99
Xbox: $1.99
PS2: $2.99

Most stores who got the shipments got them a week ago, but there are still a few decent games left.  I've seen Halo 3, GTAIV, Call of Duty 4, Gears of War, and several others.

If anyone wants Madden 10 cheap for the 360, Microcenter has an in-store deal for this weekend only where if you put $5 down on a pre-order, you get a coupon for $25 off when it releases.  Bottom line, you end up getting the game for $35 plus tax.

I already have the game on pre-order with Amazon, but I might do this Microcenter deal so I have the game the day it releases, & then flip my Amazon copy whenever it gets to me.

I never played 09 at all.  One thing I like about 10 is that they've slowed the game down a bit, so that the players run at more realistic speeds.  I've always had a hard time adjusting from NCAA to Madden since in Madden everything just seems to happen way too fast.

It's kinda annoying how I have to always contact tech support when buying games online, since my billing address is in the States, while my ISP is Korean. Steam and Stardock fixed the problem pretty quickly, and Gamersgate never had a problem, so hopefully Direct2Drive will sort things out quickly.

The Shivah (http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-SHIVAH/the-shivah) is down to 2.97€ on Gamersgate.
Quote
In this graphical adventure game, Russell Stone works as a Jewish Rabbi at a poor synagogue in New York City. He is a devout man with a problem. Membership is way down and he lacks the funds to keep his synagogue open. Things are looking very bleak, and he has grown progressively more cynical and bitter with the passage of time.
Just as he is on the verge of packing it all in, he receives some interesting news. A former member of his congregation has died and left the Rabbi a significant amount of money.
A blessing? Or the start of something far more sinister? Can Rabbi Stone just accept the money and move on? His conscience says no. Step into his shoes as he travels all over Manhattan in his attempt to uncover the truth.

Features rabbinical conversation methods, a unique method of fighting, an original score, and three different endings!

Yeah I'm tempted by the Eidos Pack (mainly for Batman and the Hitman games).
Got the THQ one a month ago so I'm really not short of games to play. Will probably hold out this time.

Maybe, but I wouldn't buy it from Steam myself.  Paradox and Steam don't play well together at all.  There are constant delays and problems with patches, registration keys, and IIRC you would HAVE to buy any future expansion packs from Steam as well.

Not sure how much any of those matter to you.  I would think someone else will sell it for the same price before it is a must have game.

I really like it so far, but it's extremely strange.  You can tell it's an import... even with the 'enhanced director's cut edition' some of the dialogue has an odd feel to it.

The oddest thing about it, thematically, is that Geralt is some brooding legacy of kain-type dude, yet goes out of his way to bang every chick he can find.  I especially liked the cut scene involving him drilling the barmaid.

The game is Polish.  Just be glads Gerald the Witchy does suck on people's toes.  But the biggest flaw in the game is the main character really isn't that likable.  He's sort of a monotone Orkin man who can cause women to go into heat.   Also he seems ripped off Moorcocks books.

WPO is seriously broken by the inability if fleets to chase down a weaker, slower fleet and engage it.  Without that, and given that fleets have to end a turn in the same hex to fight a battle, i would say the model fails to capture the situation in any meaningful way.  I'd steer clear of it.

Intriguing.  So is HOI3 worth $15, boys? :hmm:

I payed $7.50 but hardly played it and uninstalled it. I may reinstall around patch 1.05, or wait till the expansion.

Instead you might want to check out Arsenal of Democracy, based on HoI2. It's way more playable than HoI3, IMO, although naval warfare is screwy as usual - ships don't cause enough damage, and the AI will keep its whole fleet in port if at least one ship is below 98% strength. The former can be fixed with a bit of modding, both will be fixed in the soon to be released patch.

And I should get a commission for shilling for AoD.

Also something called Homefront, where you apparently get to kill Koreans who have invaded the US, comes out tomorrow.

I almost pre-ordered this since just about anything touched by John Milius kicks serious ass.  Was also intrigued by the deal Playon had where you got their console-thingie for for free-- though their legal disclaimers scared me off.  But I held off since my game backlog is still pretty ridiculous.  I rented the 360 version from Blockbuster yesterday using a free game rental coupon & found some parts of it to be good & others to be quite lame.

The intro starts with Hillary's actual press conference from last year regarding the North Korean sinking of the South Korean ship, ties that in with Kim Jong Il dying in 2013 & his son somehow taking over all of Korea, the collapse of the US dollar & economy (which was probably the creepiest part), and United Korea developing their own version of the East Asia Co-prosperity Sphere, eventually even incorporating Japan (which according to a newspaper you find in the game, has been crippled by their largest nuclear plant failing).  Several other doomsday-type events happen which reduce the US's power & aid Korea's rise.  Eventually Korea blasts the US with an EMP & invades the western portion, irradiating the Mississippi as a barrier so they can consolidate their gains in the west.  And then a lot of historical  invasion/occupation/oppression cliches ensue.

You have to turn a blind eye to some holes in that plot (where is China in all this, how does North Korea successfully take the South in the first place & then keep its other extraterritorial gains in order) and you have to buy into several worst case scenarios, but in an odd way, the story works.  And IMO the story is the strongest part of the game.  Milius weaves actual events, commonly held (or at least frequently-voiced) speculations, and historical examples into the storyline to give it a certain feeling of reality.

Gameplay is pretty vanilla FPS, which would be okay were it not so glitchy, if friendly AI's weren't so retarded, and if they made it less of a controlled experience.  And the single player campaign is short.  I finished 6 of the 7 chapters yesterday evening, only expecting to get through a couple.  I haven't played online multiplayer yet.

Anyway, unless multiplayer ends up being really good, I say this is a rental or bargain bin purchase.  It really feels like a game adaptation that was rushed out to capitalize on a decent movie.  I guess if there were a movie to begin with, I wouldn't recommend it at all.

<Homefront Review>

It's too bad, really, about the single player campaign, AI, etc.  While the story is maybe a bit weird and certainly unbelievable and all that, at least it's something different.  If you haven't seem them yet, there are some reviews that say the MP is pretty fun (and pretty much agree with everything else you said), so there's that.  Definitely not a "full price" type game.

I remember the reviews for that one.  It was basically your typical RTS but, since it was about WW1, you had to produce and manage about ten times more units than it was humanly possible to produce and manage... so the human player always, always lost.  Something about ten or twenty thousand little soldier-dudes organized into 100-man-max units.  One of those games that came out when the Russians were popping out games by the score.

Steam has Dragon Age origins with all expansions for 15 euros. What's to like about it? What's to dislike?

I enjoyed it.  It was an attempt to make an RPG similar to Baldur's Gate.  It succeeded for the most part.  The expansions vary in quality.  I didn't get all of them, but heard some were bad.  Be warned, there is some very heavy combat.  I liked the fighting in the game, but others did get bored of it after a while.  Good voice acting and writing.  The expansion was weaker.

I liked the game for the same reasons, plus it creeped the hell out of me.  But yeah, I stopped playing about 1/3 the way through partly because it was getting a little repetitive.  I want to finish it sometime, but it's a little ways back in my backlog.

Well worth $4 though.

I think you can safely assume there will be nothing innovative in terms of gameplay - but then when was the last time there was an innovative FPS?

Here's why I think it could be worth a purchase: the Duke Nuke'em formula is extremely simple - mix a FPS withsome sophomoric humour.  BUt nobody is doing a FPS like that these days.  All they have to do is follow the formula and it should be amusing.

Tropico Reloaded is definitely worth $2, if you haven't played it before. The Paradise Island expansion adds some nice things to the original, and it's a lot of fun. Well, unless your island gets hit by a hurricane and sees over half of it's buildings destroyed and the population reduced from 250 to 200. That kind of sucks.

I found it to be fun and well-made, but it's only worth bothering with if you like business, finance, and trading games. Yeah, there's pirate combat, but it's a very small part of the game, and can be avoided entirely (I suck at it, so I avoid it as much as possible).

Dunno how widespread these are, but I got an email from Gamestop last week with a coupon for $100 off a PS3.  So I gathered up some 360 games I either never got around to playing or won't play again & traded those in.  After the trade-in credit I got a 160GB PS3 for just over $100.  My intent was just to use it as a Blu-ray player to replace my slow 2nd generation Samsung, but I'll probably try out a few of the PS3-only titles.

I bought Far Cry 1 for $2.50 on steam. First time I booted it up it didn't seem to work right, but I'll give it another shot now that I've restarted after installing.

I might end up boycotting FPS games in general. For some reason they're most likely to not work on my computer even when I far surpass the system reqs.

Indeed.  Buying PC games from major studios is usually pretty unwise, since they're all designing for consoles, usually with the retarded architecture of the PS3 in mind, since the 360 can handle pretty much anything.

As an American, I (and google) have seen the phrase "The Corsican Tyrant" used by Brits many, many times, but never just "The Tyrant"  to the best of my memory.  Still, I am no expert on common British parlance, and could just have missed it, like google.

On Steam?  I can't even get to the store page for that one right now.  It's just redirecting me to their main sale page. 

I forgot to tell you guys, that was $2.50 a couple days ago.  :P  Picked it up, but haven't played it.

Yeah.  They pretty much imported modern day weaponry, tactics and jargon into the 1960s.  Annoying as hell.  They manage to keep the weapons somewhat close to what was historically used on the Khe Sanh mission, but they blew it by having the grunts refer to the enemy as "tangos" & whatnot.  You never hear the term "Charlie" or "gook".  Sheesh.

Be glad you didn't play further.  Later on you see AK74's, AK47's with grenade launchers, Steyr AUG's, and several other non-period weapons.  Not to mention ACOG sights & modern day night vision equipment.  I could look the other way if they sneaked one or two ahistorical weapons in there with the explanation that it was a prototype being developed, but it was so ridiculous it distracted me from the rest of the game, which I guess was already ridiculous enough.

Black Ops was supposed to be a continuation from World at War, but they obviously took MW2 weapons & technology & imported it into the 1960s.  I guess they felt they had to do it in order to keep up the online multiplayer momentum from MW2 (14 year olds aren't going to give up their tricked out M4 with 20 attachments for an SKS), but it was still damned retarded.

I finished the campaign as soon as I could & then sold my copy to Gamestop to get back $40-something of what I paid for it.  It had a lot of cool stuff, but I got my 'honest' Vietnam-era FPS fix from Bad Company 2: Vietnam.

The game Vietcong (released a long time ago), was a pretty good Vietnam game.  Used a lot of historical weapons including a lot from WWII (you are playing a special forces type who is up in the mountains training local tribe.  I guess they got a lot of surplus weaponry).   The sequel sucked though.

So my bro and I decided we wanted something other than WoW to play online together, and I got COD:MW2 (he already had it).  Since this game came out like 2 years ago I kinda forgot all about it, etc.

I boot up the SP campaign and there's a warning window: "There is an extremely disturbing scene in this game.  You can skip it if you want." I'm like WOTS ALL THIS THEN and select "No" and I get an "Are you really sure?" window, after which I click "No" again.

So an hour or so ago I played through this 'extremely disturbing' scene.  I'm supposed to be disturbed by killing Slavs? :blink:  I guess that's mildly more disturbing than killing Afghans. :)

    * Improved Internal politics and a new coup system
    * The return of the battle scenario system to offer new mini campaigns

Performance is supposed to be greatly improved as well.

I am sure I will end up getting this but I am just as sure it will piss me off.

EDIT: Offer expires in 3 days

What do you mean by "Performance"?  Can I still read a book in the time it takes to load?

Since everyone is avoiding saying that it is worth it (other than to note that wasting $5 isn't a big deal), I feel safe in assuming that no, the game isn't really worth $5.

If the best one can say about the game is that there is another part coming out in the future, my suspicions are confirmed.

Thanks, all.  I almost wasted $5.

Picked up Airstrike WWII (http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-ASEWW2/airstrike-eagles-of-world-war-ii), an aircady WWII fighter game. Very easy and fun to play with the mouse, only $5 for the next 40 min.

One complaint that I have is that after each mission, time advances by a month, whether you win or lose. So if you screw up and crash into a hill right after takeoff ( :blush: ), you might not get to replay the mission with that save.

Temple of Elemental Evil :x

I actually finished that one.  Took me forever to get used to the controls.  It was probably the most accurate depiction of D&D rules ever put on a PC game.  That's not necessarily a good thing.  Torment played fast and furious with the rules and was a better game for it.  Things that work on the tabletop don't always work on a PC.  Even with all the bug fixes and such the game was extremely hard and buggy.  The game was such a faithful reproduction of the original module that some of the typos made it through.  It was a pretty game though.  I'll give them that.

The game requires Steam to run so there really isn't a non-Steam version, even if you get it in a box at the store it will have to activate through Steam.  There are tons of mods out there so I assume it isn't a problem.  Based on my limited experience, as long as the developer/publisher allow modding Steam doesn't affect that at all.

Word of warning: if you have a Realtek HD Audio card, stay away from this game. The sound stutters, dialogue skips, and the action can "freeze" for a bit during a fight because of the sound issues.

It seems to be a very common issue, and though some claim to have tweaked the engine's ini to play nicely with their card, I've had no such success, leaving the game near unplayable for me.

It's not really living up to my expectations. Either that, or I'm doing it wrong.

For example, load up the Jupiter + Moons or Saturn + Moons. Let it run a while, and watch a bunch of moons fly off into the void. This indicates something's wonky with how it's calculating orbits, and it's making them more unstable than they should be, which in turn makes this worthless for toying with extrasolar planets around binary stars.

You can get 15% discount from GamersGate for life by doing this:

IGN are offering a range of freebies to entice users to sign up for their paid subscription service, IGN Prime. Included in said range of freebies are some free games or beta keys (including a Steam key for Rochard) and, far more excitingly, a code for GamersGate that lets you get 15% off any and all purchases from GamersGate, for life, including special offers.

You can register for a 7 day trial for IGN prime (and you’ll need to give them payment details) redeem the code on GamersGate, and then immediately cancel your IGN Prime membership (turn off autorenew here, and you’ll never get charged), and GamersGate will still honour the 15% discount. It’s a bit of a steal, hop to it. I’m not sure how long this offer will be available for.

I would rather pay full price on anything I might buy at Gamersgate then give any info to IGN.  Sure, they're diversifying their revenue streams from ads to selling suckers content (which is extra ridiculous, given that the price for news and info has been set at zero), but their profit margin still depends on them sharing your info with whatever 'partners' they might have at any given moment.

I wanted to get the game at some point, because it allows you to play in Vienna. In fact the tram #6 on the cover is three corners from here. :P

Free Weekend for Red Orchestra 2.  Try it before you buy it.  There is a HUGE update/patch coming out today, hopefully they don't go the Paradox route and the patch actually works.

Also on Steam:

Dungeons of Dredmore and the DLC is 50% off.  This game is way too cheap to start with so 50% off is an absolute steal.  I highly recommend everyone who doesn't own it get it.

Avadon The Black Fortress is a good old school party based RPG if anyone is looking.  It is 50% OFF TOO.

Also:

XCom Collection for $3.99US on Amazon.  No idea how they treat the Euroweens.

For me and Ultima, III wast the first (and even a Tamas-like cracked/pirate copy to boot), and holds a special place in my heart.  I especially remember leaving dropped creature loot/chests all over the landscape to herd monsters like livestock around Britannia.  :lol:

After III, I and II were kinda weird (especially I)...but I thought II was the more interesting of them.

IV was ok.

I've always thought Ultima V was the deepest (as far as story), and certainly the pinnacle of the old, classic Ultima map system.  Still miss it.

VI's new IBM PC/graphic realignment was hard to adapt to back in the day, but I thought the story was quite good.

VII was the beginning of the end...I remember it being a bitch to get to work system-wise (ah, the glory days of my old-school IBM computer expertise...now long forgotten and obsolete)...and the story ultimately(hah) unfullfilling.  Probably due to Richard Garriot selling out and becoming more of a seemingly pompous and self-absorbed tard.

Ultima VIII?  Ultima meets Super Mario Bros.  Complete waste of time.

I also fondly remember an Ultima-clone from the time known as Questron.

- Psychonauts
- Superbrothers: Sword and Sorcery

If you pay more than the current average of what people paid (at the moment $7.88) you also get:
- Bastion
- Lone Survivor
- Braid
- Super Meat Boy

Very good deal if you like indie games.

Braid, Lone Survivor and Bastion alone are individually worth the price of entry.  You're cheating yourself if you don't hit that bundle up.

I have Bastion for XBox, but this deal is too good to pass. All games activate on Steam, btw (or you can download them DRM free after purchase. Soundtracks for Bastion, Amnesia, Limbo, Psychonauts and Superbrothers are part of the deal, btw (love the Bastion tracks).

It's an RTS that doesn't play like a typical RTS. I enjoyed it a lot, particularly the multiplayer. Haven't played it in a couple months but I'm always tempted to go back to it. The devs have repeatedly patched in new, free content as well.

It seems that GOG is having a big sale, which strikes me as weird.  When you are selling PC games for five or ten bucks having a special deal where it is half price doesn't seem all that important.  I mean, Steam sells a fairly new game for about 60 bucks and for a weekend it is sold for half price that seems fairly substantial. I save thirty bucks.  I can get a decent meal at a restaurant for that money.  I save two and half bucks on a game, that's like what?  The price of two candy bars?  I guess my point is, they are already really cheap.

I quite liked it. Good graphics and "feel". But apart from the deep sea stuff there is no difference in gameplay from 1701. If you liked that one, you will love 2070 for the unique-ish setting and such. If you quickly found an earlier Anno game repetative (like I did), you might still like this one (like I did), but the general concept and gameplay is the same as previous games.

I haven't played it since that patch (beat it already and am waiting for mods now heh), but from the screenshots I've seen, it appears you can turn everything except the minimap off now, including the extremely annoying popup reminder things.  There was a prepatch mod that made that appear only every 900 seconds though, which helped a lot (default is apparently 90 seconds, accompanied by...noise with lots of bass.  It sucked).

I just wish the map was like the one in Far Cry 2, where it's pretty much just you looking down at it while the game isn't paused or anything, including when you're driving.

It is horrible. I bought it yesterday morning because the 50% thing was ticking off, figuring I'd play it when I'll feel like it, just firing it up to check it out. I am already like half a season in on my first game :P

I know people hated on ToEE, but I really liked it back in the day. Good graphics, atmosphere... the whole AD&D dungeon crawl experience captured rather nicely.

I have to admit I've only played BG1 and PS:T of the games and finished none of them.

I sunk countless hours into BG1 when it was originally released. I was in the city when I was near the level cap. I knew the add on was out in a couple of weeks, raising the cap, so I waited with playing. When I finally had the expansion I loaded up my old save and was totally lost. What was the quest? Where do I have to go? WHAT'S GOING ON?? I restarted the game a few times, but never managed to get far. :blush:

And I didn't want to play BG2 without having finished BG1 first.

PS:T had me stumped at some point (dunno where anymore), and something other caught my attention, so I never finished that, either.

I played it after several of the fan patches.  That did keep it bit more stable.  It was a weird game.  The developers were extremely true to the original module.  For instance there was one room with a hydra in it.  Nothing that special, just a mid-level monster in one room.  It's common to see all sorts of monsters in a Pen and Paper module thrown in for color.  Still it was only one.  One Hydra in the whole module. That Hydra shows up in the game.  It's not difficult to fight, and it only shows up in that one room.  This is uncommon in PC games, as developers don't often spend the resources to create a whole monster for one minor encounter.  This struck me as very strange.

It wasn't a terrible game,  and let's be honest, Single player RPGs weren't exactly plentiful when it came out (they aren't now either).  The biggest problem was the many bugs in the game.  This was fairly typical of Troika, and is probably why they aren't around anymore.  Still, it was like a labor of love rather then a commercial product.  It was turn based (not that I think this is a negative, it's just that this was so uncommon at the time), and the the meticulous reconstruction of the original adventure just made the game seem weird to me.

That's a good question.  It depends on whether you like the gameplay.  The series evolves significantly from the I through III.  The Ezio Auditore Trilogy (II, Brotherhood, Revelations) is really the standard.  III is very interesting, but gameplay is taking a seat to narrative.

You can skip I, IMHO.  Season Pass for AssCreed III would be essential.

Buying the DLC was a pain in the ass, though. A lot of add ons require Semper Fi - which doesn't automatically show up in the DLC for HoI3. So if I added all DLC to cart or want to buy the "HoI3 Collection" it gave me the error that I didn't own a required program to buy the items.

But like you I saw the latest DLC/version and then notice you had to have the previous mod/expansion, which then had me following the track back several times to the required precursor, till eventually it said I need the original HO3.

It's a MOBA, like League of Legends, Heroes of Newerth & that Blizzard version.

Quote
Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), also known as action real-time strategy (ARTS), is a sub-genre of the real-time strategy (RTS) genre, in which often two teams of players compete with each other in discrete games, with each player controlling a single character through an RTS-style interface. It differs from traditional RTS games in that there is no unit construction and players control just one character. In this sense, it is a fusion of action games and real-time strategy games. The genre emphasizes cooperative team-play; players select and control one "hero", a powerful unit with various abilities and advantages to form a team's overall strategy. The objective is to destroy the opponents' main structure with the assistance of periodically spawned computer-controlled units that march towards the enemy's main structure via paths referred to as "lanes".

Alea Jacta Est (AJE) covers mostly Romans vs Romans fighting, with the key Roman Civil Wars between the 1st century BC and the 3rd century AD: http://www.ageod.com/en/ageod-games/35-pre-order-alea-jacta-est-base-version.html

I remember ordering the original CK back in the day.  It was fun, but pretty fundamentally broken.

CK2 on the other hand... I was following the "never buy on the day of release" rule at that point.

Gone Home is on flash sale on Steam for 75% off. Not so much a game as it is an interactive story telling experience (based on exploration of your family house), so might not be for everyone. I do enjoy the format, however (if you liked Dear Esther and/or The Stanley Parable you may enjoy this one, too). The sale price point (€4.74) seems about right. Duration for my playthrough was a good two hours and I don't think I found everything.

The Gothic games are 50% off. I picked up the "universe" bundle for a tenner. It's Gothic 1, 2 with expansion and 3.

I got 1 & 2 for old times' sake. I especially like 2's little cosmos, that makes more sense than most fantasy settings. A small island, under threat of ork invasion. The king sends Paladins who pretty much declare martial law in the little harbor town. The farmers who supply the city with food are pressured into delivering more and more supplies till the largest land owner says "Enough!" and hires ex-cons as mercenaries to ward off the king's men.

There is actually a logic to the whole setting. The special ore on the island is (or rather: was) mined by convicts behind a magical one way barrier. A small harbor town is built to ship out the ore. And there's a bunch of farms to sustain the whole operation. I wish more fantasy settings were making that much sense.



I tried G3 again (without its India-made expansion), with the latest community patch that fixes 700+ issues that remained after official patching stopped. I was very butthurt by G3 on release - it was an unfinished, horribly buggy mess. It was encapsulated by two things for me:
1. The killer pigs of doom: wild boars are early enemies in the game. They (and some other beasts) come with an attack that knocks you over. Originally they had such a quick attack rate that once you were knocked over you could never get up again and were slowly mauled to death.
2. Running with a ranged combat companion into a herd of animals. The ranged character would not defend himself until he was attacked in melee by a beast. Which meant he was a) useless and b) quickly dead.

The opening of the game didn't help to endear it to me. Replaying it, despite fixes and a fan made rebalancing of combat/skills didn't change it. You're thrown into a combat against a horde of orks who outnumber you and your allies about 2:1. This is interrupted by the tutorial messages. You only need a few hits to be down on your ground. You can't die in this section, and are only kicked to the ground when your health runs out. You regenerate about 5% of your health, but as soon as you get up another ork comes over and knocks you back on your ass before you can get a new sword. The only way I could make it past this section right now was to run out of the little village to drink a health potion (the animation takes a few seconds and is interrupted when taking damage) and get a new weapon. Twice.

I played a bit, and there's lots of critters everywhere - which isn't unusual for a Gothic game. The game world was always very open from the start, but there were a lot of areas where you had to expect to get your ass kicked if you hadn't leveled high enough. Evasion was crucial in the early stages, and it also gave you a certain satisfaction when you could finally go and clear an area.

Assassin's Creed 4 is only $35 on Amazon, unless you pick it up for one of those new-fangled next-gen console gaming devices, in which case it's the full $60.

From what I've seen it's more Sid Meier's Pirates than Assassin's Creed, but it looks like fun and $35 seems like a good price for a brand new AAA release.

Fallen Enchantress for less than 5 yuros, on steam: Do, or Do Not?

L.

I've played it a bit recently.  It's fun but the graphics still aren't that great, the game itself does a lousy job of telling you what you can do and it has some clunky interface elements.  Still, I like it.

I'm think that a lot of the replay value is in the DLC (booo!) but definitely try it with bigger maps and higher than the easiest settings.  The smaller maps mean that not all the content will show up and on the easy settings monsters don't attack you.

Fallout 1, 2 and Tactics are FREE at the moment on GOG:

http://www.gog.com/promo/fallout_series_giveaway_winter_promo_2013

I was waiting for a sale, but this is even better. :D


Explanation courtesy of RPS:

Quote
As the headline says, three Fallout games for free. GO AND GET THEM. These isometric beauties will vanish from GOG at the end of the year. The DRM-free store doesn’t reckon it’ll be allowed to peddle them after year’s end as the current deal with Interplay will expire. After December 31st, the rights belong to Bethesda/ZeniMax. However, the magic of GOG means that if you add the free versions to your account in the next 47 hours (I’m an hour late with this post – SORRY), you’ll be able to keep a copy forever. Go go go.

It’s worth noting that the Fallouts aren’t definitely for the chop, although GOD certainly seem to think that’s the case – “Please note that all three classic Fallout titles are pending right holder change. Sadly, to the best of our knowledge, we’ll be forced to remove Fallout, Fallout 2, and Fallout Tactics from our offer.” This all makes me think of Doom 3′s weird (reversible) vanishing act.

I decided to put the Fallout Tactics intro here because it’s the one that nobody remembers. There’s a reason for that.

Bought that the day it came out and regretted it almost immediately. Now you can download it for free. I didn’t only have to spend money, I had to catch a bus and go to a shop.

Will anyone step up to defend Tactics? I didn’t spend a great deal of time with it and that felt like too much. The first two are, as you most likely know, absolutely superb. I think I prefer the second, although it’s a tough call and I pretend that the opening half hour or so doesn’t exist.

This is all part of GOG’s winter sale and it’ll be worth checking back for more freebies over the coming days. Or maybe even spending some money if you have any left after your sacrifices to the altar of Sanity Claws.

It's more actiony and less stealthy, from what I understand, than the mainstay MGS titles.

And the protagonist is Raiden rather than Solid Snake.

So it might be a cool game - my guess is that it is - but I don't know if comparing it vs. the rest of the series is going to be really helpful.

EA fucked up and sent me two one extra beta access codes for Titanfall, one for PC and one for XBone. It's a pretty fun game. The movement is Tribes-like with sprinting, double jumping, wall running and wall hanging and such. Gunplay is standard Cod fair though.

Anyway, if anyone here wants either the code, lemme know.

It's pretty good.  The net result is a very "GTA Hong Kong" feel that isn't exactly groundbreaking, but the storyline's a lot more satisfying than GTA IV, in my opinion.  Also, Hong Kong as a setting makes for some more interesting free roam experiences.

My problem is you apparently differentiating stock footage and what basically amounts to footage made in-game. Plus Deus Ex made use of "stock footages" throughout the game so you really shouldn't have been surprised by the endings being the same.

Holy fucking shit.  I thought this day would never come.  RON is one of the best RTSs of all time.

Is this going to be any different than what I got from GoG?

When did you get it from GOG?

A couple years ago  iirc

I'm sure I could have saved myself some money, but that wasn't too bad.  I was three pacs behind, so for the full price of those pacs I got everything.

So, I only ever skimmed CK2 (though I played the shit out of CK1) - any suggestions where I should start tonight?

I'm not happy to see it, either, but in some cases I find it acceptable - Prison Architect is very playable by now, and they keep adding new features every month. I also picked up Divinity - Original Sin because its official release will be the 30th. Project Zomboid is also pretty playable.

Assassin's Creed 2.

Best in the series, IMO.

I got the first one on PS3 when it came out and I was disappointed by it, so I never got the others. But a few people enthusiastically recommended #2 to me so I'm going to give it a go.

I'm about to finish Sleeping Dogs (clocking at 25 hours, it's a bit short if you don't go around picking up every collectible and finishing every side mission), and I'm enjoying it quite a bit. Now, as a game is probably pretty average, but the setting and the story are pretty well done. Plus I love Honk Kong mafia flicks.

I just bought this bundle from this site.

You get one Steam key sent to your email for the entire collection.  Vicky I and II can be downloaded separately but there is no way to separate the DLC and expansions out, you install everything or nothing for each game. 

The other thing worth mentioning is that the only way to pay (that I could see) is Paypal or something called Google Wallet.  My Paypal goes directly to the credit card I would have used anyway, but it seems worth mentioning for the weirdos out there that have hang-ups with buying stuff online.

G3 is horrid. It's better than the clusterfuck that was originally released, but still not very good. Play Morrowind or Skyrim instead.

G1 was pretty good, if a bit stupid hard towards the end.

G2 was very good for its time, and it's one of the better designed fantasy worlds in that it makes sense (a small trade city, bunch of farms around to supply them and the mine valley, friction because the soldiers arriving need more food so the farmers hire mercenaries etc.).

It doesn't do a lot of hand holding, and in the beginning it's very easy to die because you took a wrong turn on a path or picked the wrong fight. The combat is a bit wonky.

Not sure how good the localization from German to English is, both in text and word. German voice acting tended towards the cheesy.

While knowing what happened in G1 and knowing some of the characters you meet again, playing it is not required. You get a bit of a primer at the beginning, and you could always check the wiki page.

It has the standard HoI problem of the naval and air functionality sucking.  In HoI 3 it's easy to automate both as long as you don't care about doing anything interesting with them.  That means playing Germany, Russia, France or some minor.

I doubt anyone does.  I should have some control over what my air force likes and maybe be able to attach certain elements to certain armies (X amount of fighter wings to this sector of air defense, Y amount to assist this army), etc.  But constantly fiddling with the hour and minute and time of day and composition and which air general is in charge and paying attention to yet another unit's strength and AUGH.  Why?

For some reason the bluish tint throws me off, gonna get used to it I guess.

They are recommending me games that I already own, so the new store engine needs some tweaking.

You can tweak some of the stuff it shows you - look for "customize" buttons in some of the windows.

I like that if you look at a game's DLC list it will grey out stuff you already own. Also, if you browse/search games in lists it will often show you a quick thumbs up/down button based on user reviews.

2 and Brotherhood are well worth it.  1's a little simplistic, but fun, and (IMO) the later ones overcomplicated the gameplay.  (Not including 5 in this, since I haven't gotten a chance to try it yet- didn't want to pick it up until I made some headway through 4, which I haven't turned on in months)

1 was lame. 2 and Brotherhood pretty good (Brotherhood is probably my favorite). 3 and 4 are also pretty fun if you like those settings (colonial america and pirates respectively). 

Revelations is the one I'd skip (in Instanbul) as that one added an unnecessary bomb making thinking. I never bothered to finish it.

Brotherhood's definitely worth it.  It's not so much a sequel as a companion to 2, and it does clean up a *lot* of the ends left dangling at the end of 2.

This. After reading the comments here and on other sites, I've decided to wait for at least one DLC, if not two. CivV was a very good game, but with the big DLCs it's become exceptionally good. Let's hope for Beyond Earth to follow the same route.

Unironic single player shooter mit focus on gunplay (and some optional stealth). It's completely silly alt- hist over the top action, but takes itself serious at the same time. Kind of like an 80s action flick. And it has some of the best world building with many little details (even more so if you speak German). There's a thread about it here, I think. If you can get it for 15 to 20 bucks: buy it. The campaign is 12 hours, IIRC.

I have 351 games according to my library (or 359 according to my profile :hmm: ), and only 6 titles have more than 50 hours playtime: Sims 3 (130 hours  :blush: ), Civ5 (84 hours), CK2 (82 hours), Bejeweled 3 (73 hours :blush: ), Dragon Age Origins (71 hours), Skyrim (51) hours. Over 300 with less than 5 hours. Not to mention about 200 titles with less than an hour in it.

It's why the Steam sales have become rather unexciting for me - a lot of the discounted titles that I'd be interested have the "in Library" tag by now. :blush:

TBF, some games I've finished are short, i.e. under 20 hours (Batman, Wolfenstein, SpecOps: The Line and others).

It's weird with me, though. It's not that I don't want to play the games, or lack the time to do so. But for some reason I instead end up watching someone else play a game I enjoy on Twitch or YouTube. Sometimes for hours.

Sitting down and playing through DA:O recently was a big thing for me, because I rarely finish games that size (last ones to come anywhere near that would have been ME1&2 back to back), and it took some serious effort in the end to stay focused.

I tend to play a few games (mostly modded) for very long stretches. I have a handful over 100 hours: Xcom (100 hours), DoW II (104), DA:O (111), Fallout 3 (169), Mount&Blade (434) and Dota2  (a whopping 1111 hours, though likely <300 actually played). I don't have statitics on MTW2 (I played TA a lot), DoW:DK or HL mods.

F:NV, Skyrim and Civ V will likely surpass 100 hours as well eventually.

It also depends on the commenter itself. Before buying games I might check out let's plays of the game in question. Or I watch it to see how someone else plays a game, maybe to learn something new or see a new spin (usually with strategy titles). Or if there's multiple endings to a game I might check those out.

But it all stands and falls with the one playing it. A silent playthrough can be good if you just want gameplay. Normal gameplay commentary can be interesting if it explains mechanics. Beyond that it'll be personal tastes, and even with the same commenter it can vary from game to game. I find Jesse Cox obnoxious in one game, amusing and hilarious in another. I like SplatterCat when he explains the mechanics of an indie game, but some of his jokes in his playthroughs can be really annoying and boring. I generally like quill18 and Arumba. quill is a nice enough guy and does gameplay in a way I find entertaining. Arumba focuses more on gameplay (he's usually playing to min/max), and he did a pretty decent CK2 tutorial a few months ago.

SF Debris occasionally does some game commentary, but his is heavily edited into a story review format (because that's what he normally does), covering ME2, KotOR and DA:O so far. Actually, his doing DA:O prompted me to finally make it through DA:O myself, because I wanted to watch his commentary and story analysis, but I didn't want to have the game story spoiled for me (at least not huge spoilers).

Also, when you get heavily into a game, you'll typically find some community member who doesn't have the general name recognition, but is really, really good at coverage of the game in question.  For Space Engineers, for example, I  tend to follow SAGE's mod spotlight videos.

As far as the appeal of commenters, there is also a class of games that I'm just too cheap/poor to buy, or where I won't/can't play it for various other reasons (survival horror games come to mind, as well as most grand strategy games).  I'm interested in them, I appreciate the design, but I gotta see it from somebody else.

Good question.

I love watching sports, but I love playing them as well.

I like watchning college basketball, but I am pretty sure I would love PLAYING college basketball even more. Sadly, for some reason my slowness, weight, 2.6 inch vertical leap, inability to shoot and poor dribbling skills are unfairly held against me, so watching is the only option.

I've certainly gone through times where I am burned out on video games and mostly stop playing - but I don't replace it with watching other people play video games!

I mean, no big deal, we all do what we want to do to amuse ourselves. Lord knows most people probably think my choices of hobbies is pretty fucking bizarre as well.

Graviteam Tactics (former "Achtung Panzer") Operation Star and most expansions are 75% off on Steam:

http://store.steampowered.com/app/275290/

Some of the add ons are a bit "out there": Operation Hooper (Namibia), Zhalanashkol 1969 between USSR and PRC, or Shield of the Prophet (Afghanistan 1979).

I liked Operation Star well enough. Kind of what Combat Mission Campaigns was supposed to do (operational map that generates the encounters in tactical). Unit density in tactical could be a bit sparse, but repeatedly fighting over a piece of estate and coming back to the burnt out vehicles of the last engagement was pretty neat.

However: UI sucks big time.

Quote
Star Wars! Nothing but Star Wars! Give me more Star Wars—videogaaaaaames! Yes, if you're still sleeping in your Caravan of Courage jim-jams, then this would be a good time to turn your attention to the Humble Bundle, which has assembled a collection of nine fine Star Wars games, with more to come, for just 12 bucks.

For any price you care to pay (down to a minimum of $1), you get Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Star Wars Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy, and Star Wars: Dark Forces. Beat the average and you'll also get Star Wars Battlefront II (and I'm going to stop saying Star Wars now), Knights of the Old Republic II: The Sith Lords, and Republic Commando. Pay $12 or more and you can tack on Empire at War: Gold Pack, The Force Unleashed: Ultimate Sith Edition, the The Force Unleashed II.

As has become the way with Humble Bundles, more games are promised for anyone who beats the average. What could they be? Jedi Knight II: Jedi Outcast and Dark Forces II are good bets, and I suppose the Lego Star Wars games might go over well, too. Personally, I'd love to see X-Wing and TIE Fighter added, but I'm enough of a realist about such things that I won't hold my breath.

The Star Wars Humble Bundle supports the US Fund for Unicef through Star Wars: Force For Change, a charitable initiative founded by Disney and LucasFilm. You can find out more about that at forceforchange.starwars.com, but don't get too excited about the contest: It actually ended last summer.

Speaking of endings, the Star Wars Humble Bundle will come to one in two weeks: That's 1 pm EST on February 17.

Some people like EaW, some hate it. I keep poking it, but can't fully get into it (and it doesn't help that Forces of Corruption introduces a bit of an overpowered faction, but I believe there's mods that deal with it).

In general, people seem to hate the ground battles the most, and find the combat on the whole rather repetitive.

I'd recommend checking out some let's plays on YouTube. If interested in mods, the Republic at War mod that turns it into a Clone Wars game seems to be the best/most polished one. Check out TheXPGamers' long play of it on YouTube, maybe.

Title: Re: PSA: Game Discounts
Post by: Lettow77 on March 30, 2015, 12:04:34 pm
Problems within Valkyria Chronicles

 Gameplay- The first and most obvious area, Valkyria Chronicles gameplay is a semi-turnbased "tactical" game with very repetitive gameplay. Ostensibly a 1930s-esque tactical wargame, it can be hard to accept an infantrymen taking 30+ shots because the person holding the gun was a "scout" or so on. Features are introduced in a trickle-feed, and gameplay is heavily interspersed with long, extensive cutscenes. Just about everything has input for grinding, but it's just numbers going higher rather than interesting new features- your tank's damage output gets higher while the enemies you are fighting get tougher HP and so on, making it all a wash.   The game was a lazy port to PC, and even as a console game had outmoded ideas about interface, making saving, loading or quitting very time-consuming affairs. Where most games can be exited by tapping escape twice, Valkyria Chronicles makes a chore of maneuvering multiple screens.

Setting- Overt anime setting; this hardened military force is of course over half girls, as young as twelve. Dialogue is insufferable, and suffers from hideously off-base subtitles or a terrible dub in either case. While shooting for an anime military appeal would turn off most languish users, it doesn't even do it very successfully- the girls simply aren't cute, by and large. All the tropes are there, though- of course you live with a subservient quite little sister, and of course she isn't blood related and has romantic interest in you. Japanese takes on an alternate 1930s European military engagement are a bewilderingly large genre, and this is about the worst.

Well I guess that is sure better than 1930s Japanese military engagement being a bewilderingly large genre.

Is that a big fantasy in Japan?  Here, that's creepy.

I would imagine there's a fair section of their shut-in or near-shut-in culture that craves the love of a harmless, innocent supportive girl.  Real girls would be a bit too scary.  It's kind of an evolution of the 'fall in love with your childhood friend' trope, tailored for a generation that never had any childhood friends of the opposite sex.

Matrix Games has an Esater coupon 'HappyEaster15' which wacks 30% off one game. So War in the West got more tolerable at 56 smackers instead of 80.

They have DLC collections:

However, for CK2, it doesn't seem to include Way of Life or Charlemagne. You'll get Steam codes if you buy any of this.

I see.  Anyway I saw P'dox offered a sale on EU4: AoW directly via their website, which I've wanted for a while, so I bought it from there for the Steam activation code.  I figure maybe that way they get more money anyhow.

I may do a new game as the Turks during the 30YW.  I always have wanted to do that ever since the GMT consim about that topic came out.  I actually haven't played the Turks since EU2, I don't think.  I used to always play either Russia or the Turks back then, but now it's always Spain or Portugal. :hmm:

It's pretty much exactly the same.  Still using that same engine and everything. If you never played Invasion Normandy (I think that was the first one with this feature), there's a strategic map where you can move units around, etc.

Its been a while since I played, so I can't give you any real specifics, but I do remember a couple of mods I used to ease some frustration: Zombie standard time and one where you can put backpacks into trucks.  ZST made it so the game wouldn't "play" (or wouldn't play as much, depending on your settings) while your weren't actually playing it, so your survivor buddies wont go off and get themselves killed while you're sleeping or at work or whatever.
