Bargain Thread 2018

Almost picked it up during the recent steam sale. But this is an even better deal! Thanks.


#1347

Crowntakers and its expansion are well worth the $1.99 price of that Fanatical Strategy Bundle, the fact that you get Space Hulk Ascension, Grand Ages Medieval and the others is super delicious double fudge icing on the chocolate cake.


#1348

That’s great to know! Once I get done with work, was going to look over the bundle and ask for any other recommendations.

I can say from having played some Grand Ages Medieval…it sure is pretty. And an outstanding achievement in 3d map-making. (It’s the engine that was also used for Railway Empire, a far superior game, apparently.) My very limited experience with GAM is just that it’s a very dull game, despite having so many ways where it shouldn’t be dull.


#1349

I would say the same for Command & Colors The Great War. Too bad it didn’t sell well enough for more games to be produced using that system.


#1350

So its less than $3 now…

>OBSERVER is free on Twitch today for Prime members, this is the one I really wanted.


#1352

Is it true that the Space Hulk game in that bundle above has a lot of DLC needed to make it feel complete, or does it stand on its own?
The Crowntakers game looks pretty cute.


#1353

Quick summary on this? Google said horror game.


#1354

I grabbed it. Space Hulk, Royal Heroes and Crown Takers all looked fun.


#1355

It’s an investigative mystery cyberpunk walking sim with horror-ish elements when you jack into crazy or dead peoples’ brains. It’s a mindfuck with a great story. Or so I hear, I haven’t played it yet.

Also the player character is voiced by Rutger Hauer.


#1356

Slay the Spire, which was a hot seller during the Summer Sale, is $10.07 (37%), a historic low, for the weekend on Steam.


#1357

Hack.net free, on Steam. Ends July 14.


#1358

Must be a German word for getting excited about a free Steam game and being subsequently super disappointed that you forgot you already own it.


#1359

Schadampfreude?


#1360

More like “Verdampft!!”

(a play on Verdammt! meaning “dammit!” but if I’m not mistaken it probably means “steamed” in the literal, not figurative sense)


#1361

Square Enix sale happening now on the Humble Store. Lots of stuff, but the main relevant thing for most people is probably going to be Final Fantasy XII for $25 ($22.50 for Humble Monthly subs).


#1362

TACOMA is free on Twitch today for Prime members

Surviving Mars is $24 (40% off) over on Fantatical.


#1363

Well played.
That’s absolutely correct.


#1364

Fanatical has a bundle with the whole Pyro Studios catalog for 1€. That’s all the Commandos except the shooter, Praetorians and one other Medieval game.

In the news today:
Pyro sold all the rights to the games mentioned above to the German publisher Kalypso. Generally speaking Kalypso tend to use the rights they’re buying. So I wouldn’t be surprised if a new Commandos is coming.


#1365

Vielen Dank für die Bestätigung! (oder wäre das eher Zusage*?)

*Actually I think that’s more “approval,” isn’t it?
