Two new bundles today for Bundle Stars Bundlefest:

Essentials Pick-A-Mix is an interesting little mix of eclectic games, some of which are very good. Choose any 2 for $1.00, any 6 for $2.49 and any 12 for $3.99.

The two best games on offer are Hegemony Rome : Rise of Caesar and A Story About My Uncle, either one of which is worth far more than $1, so together they are a fantastic deal. You can also make a very good 6 game bundle well worth $2.49 out of those two plus Demonicon, Rise of the Triad 2013, Hero of the Kingdom II and GemCraft : Chasing Shadows. If you already own any of those, swap in The Silent Age, Survivalist Overture or Lichdom : Battlemage and you’ll probably still be pretty happy with your purchase.

Also on offer is the Battle Academy Complete Bundle. $1.99 for Battle Academy and all it’s DLC, $4.99 to also unlock Battle Academy 2 : Eastern Front and it’s Battle of Kursk DLC. I have zero experience with Battle Academy, but it looks pretty interesting. Anyone have any thoughts?

Dragon Quest Heroes II is the Daily Deal on Steam today. $29.99 (50%)

WHAT A DEAL. :/


#1550

Holy cats… this is a good deal! BA are basically nice “Steel Panthers” lite hex-based games.

I’ll be grabbing these just to get the DLCs since I bought the main games already


#1551

Battle Academy looks really cool. Thanks for the info, scharmers.


#1552

Well, square-based.


#1553

I liked it quite a bit.


#1554

Thanks, that review was very thorough and pretty much convinced me to purchase. If you hear a knock at your door at 2:00AM, it’s my backlog…don’t open the door! ;-)


#1555

You’re welcome! I also have an AAR of one of the missions (probably the first one, but I don’t recall). I hope you enjoy the game so I don’t feel guilty for steering you towards it! :-)


#1556

Steam Weekend Sales:


#1560

I’ve thought about this one before. $3 may be the price I bite on.


#1561

Unless you’re fishing through trash cans because it’s the only way you’ll get dinner, or you have an emulation setup that is beyond gristle throbbing, then I don’t think the $3 is a consideration

boughted


#1562

No Enduro? No sale.


#1563

I’ve got your Enduro… right here in my pants, buddy.


#1564

Free! The best video game evar. Please get it and play it, if you haven’t. And maybe even if you have!


#1565

More like a Pitfall amirite?!


#1566

Yeah, it’s not the money - it’s whether I decide I actually want it. When it’s that cheap it passes the money test easily but if I decide I don’t want it I’d rather put that $3 towards something I do want. When games get that cheap it tends to make me decide if I give a crap about it or not.


#1567

I almost bought the Atari Vault, but then I realized I have a zillion unplayed games already and it’ll be $3 again someday. Pass.
