I know a couple of folks w/ prior service careers that really enjoy it.  They're usually tabletop guys, too, so there's that going for it as well.

GOG has a bunch of stuff going on right now... 



-  Their big winter sale just launched today.  (Eek!)   

-  There's currently a flash deal for Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition - only $2.99(USD). 

-  They're currently giving away Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun for free (for the next 34 hours as of the time I'm posting this). 

-  The sale includes all of their Star Trek titles -- with two notable exceptions... 

-  ...Those two games being Star Trek: Armada and Star Trek: Armada II.  They're now available for sale on a digital download platform for the first time ever, if I'm not mistaken.

Most of my wishlist is one sale and half of those are 50% or more off!

I'm relieved to say that none of the games on my list are more than a paltry 20% off.  It will be easy to resist this time around.  :peace: 




$1.50 ?!?  :o

Don't bother.  I played the demo a while back, and sadly it fails as both a 4x game and as a digital adaptation of a board/tabletop game.  I can't recommend it at any price.

Not sure to be received that I didn't blow $2 or bummed that LNLP released a turd....

Here's my damage (thus far, but hopefully stopping here):

Airships: Conquer the Skies

I refunded this one. It looked good but I didn't realise just how much time you need to spend designing ships, and that is absolutely not up my street. Looked like a really good game besides that though, I'd definitely recommend it to anyone without my hangup.

Generation Zero

Post-apoc open world survival set in an alternate 80s Sweden. Lots of robots. Robots gone crazy. I haven't played much yet but it had a promising beginning. Quite atmospheric. Tough, though; the robots have laser-like accuracy and can spot you a mile away. I gather the best way forward until you acquire a fearsome arsenal is to stealth it. Has drop-in co-op too.

Ender Lilies: Quietus of the Knights

This is a 2D Soulslike. Not my kind of thing usually, but I was attracted by the remarkable visual style (and the soundtrack is even better). It's pretty charming so far. Combat is tough but fair; if you can't be arsed to learn you'll have a bad time, but if you adapt to each enemy and acquired skill the difficulty seems just right. It's also one of the more forgiving games in this vein - you don't lose accumulated XP when you die, unlike the Dark Souls games. I'm looking forward to playing more of this.

Spellcaster University

Magic school management sim with a touch of roguelite to it. Not sure what to make of this yet. All the ingredients seem to be there and it's a relatively unique take on the genre, but I don't feel like I'm getting the visual feedback that I need. I'll have to investigate further.

Horizon: Zero Dawn

This is the big one. I played through a lot of this game on the PS4 but for various reasons I don't really play on consoles any more, so I've bought it again for PC. HZD is a stunning game with a beautiful world, interesting and likeable protagonist, a story you actually care about, and one of the best interfaces I've ever used in a game of this type. Hoping to complete it this time around.

I must admit that 'Spellcaster University' piqued my interest.

I got a text from my old pal Yoda. He says, "Begun the Steam Sale of Lunar has". When I told him I didn't think I was interested, he replied, "You will be. YOU---Will---BE". Crazy old guy.  :idiot2:
