Best of 2016 Bundle!

$1
Else Heart.Break
Evoland 2
Victor Vran

Pay more than the average of $2.91 to also unlock!
Rust (Early Access)
Shadowrun: Hong Kong - Extended Edition
Stronghold Crusader 2

Pay $10 or more to also unlock!
Homeworld Remastered Collection

I doubt Rust will ever be finished, nor will it ever be any fun.

Victor Vran is easily worth a buck. Shadowrun Dragonfall was good, so maybe Hong Kong is worth the upgrade to the BTA tier.


#103

I really enjoyed Hong Kong.


#104

Else Heart.Break() is an odd duck. This community guide might help to get started.

I’ve owned it for over a year. It’s a slow starter, and I haven’t played it enough for it to quite click yet…


#105

Just saw this bundle of classic flight sims mentioned on Facebook. About $8 for some of the finest flight sims of the 90s.

Showing up as $19.60 for me


#107

Prob one of those where it discounts it if you already own some of the games.


#108

Oh gosh, I’m sorry, I forgot they did that, and they’re not super clear that they’re doing it either.


#109

The Flame in the Flood, in apparently limited quantity, is $5.99 at Bundlestars. I’ve heard mixed reviews. Is it worth picking up?


#110

BundleStars also has the the Metro Redux bundle for 5.99€, which must be close to the cheapest price ever.


#111

BundleStars has another [URL=“https://www.bundlestars.com/en/promotions/dollar-dash-3”]Dollar Dash[/URL] thing going on. Most games are from the Stealth Bastard, Lucius and Postal series.

I feel a bit tempted by Stealth Bastard and Stealth Inc. Did anybody play them?


#112

Absolutely it is. I purchased this during Christmas during the Steam sale and have had great fun with it.

#114

Is The Order worth playing for $5? I remember the initial complaints were about it being short.


#115

The knock on it was defintiely that it was short. One of the boys played it and liked it well enough for what it was.


#116

I tried it but didn’t care for the controls.


#117

Yeah, I rented it, and didn’t care to play past the first hour. I was bored out of my mind as I walked slowly from place to place.

I think @Brad_Grenz is a big fan of the game, so maybe he can sell us on it.


#118

it was a pretty decent mass effect style (read: cover based, heavy cinematic explosions) shooter with great graphics for a console release of that time.

I remember the combat being completely average.


#119

It’s about 7.5 hours long, but at $5 that hardly should matter. I really enjoyed the story and the world. The unique weapons were fun to use and the combat was tight and reactive, if not a complete reinvention of the genre as some seemed to demand.

The only real downside to me is the actual lycan shootouts. It’s obvious that area of the combat never came together, but there’s only a couple sequences of that and they’re brief enough. I had no regrets paying full price, and consider it a steal at $5.

The game is moody, and deliberate in its pacing, though, so anyone who hated the “walking simulator” portions of Uncharted 4 will probably be annoyed by The Order. Much of the joy for me was drinking in these fabulous environments, though.

Steam has an Endless Grand Master Collection for $18. This collection contains Dungeon of the Endless and all its dlc, Endless Legend and all its dlc and Endless Space and its dlc. What I’m wondering is, is that collection worth it if I own Endless Space and its dlc?
