Bargain Thread 2017

It is, in the spirit of an Herzog Zwei almost, and I’d like to recommend it, but I have yet to find an opponent to play it with to even check if it is enjoyable ;)


#2108

Gonna try and get Amazon to match that, I will be all over their chat associates, groveling and yelling will be used if needed.


#2109

Is there no single player campaign?


#2110

I’m 95% sure that Tooth and Tail has a single player campaign. I think I remember Rob Zacny talking about it on the show.


#2111

Yeah, each faction has a fairly short SP campaign. The good news? They’re randomly generated maps.


#2112

The single player campaign acts as a tutorial at first, then as little puzzles. Frankly, although (or, maybe, because) I consider myself a pessimist and a cynical in the classical acception, the context of it feels a bit childish (wolves eating wolves, all be damned, with enlightened pigs having given up on trying to reason with the rest of a world gone crazy), and I don’t find it very interesting.

There are skirmishes, too.

By skipping another PS4 Pro Black Friday sale once again, there will surely be an awesome Pro-enhanced game released next year just to spite me. And that’s fine!

Maybe I should jump on that free Xbox 360 (after rebate) to play Ninja Gaiden Black instead. I assume you have to go to the store for these? Yuck. Umm, someone grab me one if you’re there! It does say online but I figure they will sell out fast.

Some decent Redbox deals if you’re ok with disc only copies – Doom $5, Agents of Mayhem $5, Dark Souls III $5 among others.

Among the deals currently available on the Humble store is MGS V The Phantom Pain, a bit over 12 bucks with the 10% extra Humble Monthly Discount. Seriously tempted just to see what all the fuss was about.


#2116

It’s definitely worth it in my opinion. Good stealth + good action when stealth goes south.


#2117

It’s the best. Full of character and not afraid to be a video game. :)


#2118

Wow, Wolfenstein 2 is on sale for just under $27 on PC.


#2119

Well, I went for it. Maybe I can get some playtime in during Thanksgiving weekend.


#2120

Careful with that thing, once you get past the intro, it is addictive as hell.


#2121

Virginia is available for a single buck at amazon for some reason.


#2122

Interesting find. Anyone know if it’s any good?


#2123

I liked it a lot. It’s exceptionally linear, but it’s full of style and worth experiencing if you like that kind of game.


#2124

It’s a buck. On a certain level, does it matter?

It’s just icing on the cake that it is actually a decent game, and appears to be worth playing through.


#2125

Life is Strange was inspired by 90s David Lynch.

Virginia is 90s David Lynch.


#2126

At this point in my life, it’s less about the money than the time. It does sound really interesting.
