Dont think there's a thread like this already. Just letting people know when stuff is free or temporarily cheap as Steam etc do some very cool one day specials

Anyway, for the iOS mob...
"Edge" and "Burn the City". Two fun little games that are free on a 24hr promotion thing. Grab 'em quick, especially Edge which is retro awesome

Both are incredibly good.
Arkham City was arguably the best game of 2011, and is the current gold standard RE comic book video game adaptations.

Anyone else bought a 3DS XL?

Found this on CVG:

"New and existing owners who register before January 15, 2013 will be able to download one of five games from the eShop.

The titles on offer are Super Mario 3D Land, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, New Art Academy, New Style Boutique and Freakyforms Deluxe.

Owners who've already registered 3DS XL systems with Club Nintendo will still be able to receive a free game by logging into their Club Nintendo account and following the instructions on the banner about the promotion."


Had to do a bit of searching to actually find the promotion, as its a bit hidden.
-Log in
-Go to 'My Profile'
-Click the arrow next to the banner to find the promotion.

If you haven't been keeping up, THQ has been going through some bad financial mess recently. They're offering a set of 6 games (7 if you pay over $5.67) over on humble bundles for what ever price you want to give. The games they are offering in this bundle are,

Darksiders
Metro 2033
Red Faction Armageddeon
Company of Heroes
Company of Heroes Opposing Fronts
Company of Heroes Tales of Valor
Saints Row 3 (only if you pledge over $5.67 as of this post)

These aren't physical copies, they will only give you CD keys which you then activate on steam, windows only.

https://www.humblebundle.com/

Unfortunately I'm not sure if this works for people outside of the US. I don't see why it shouldn't, if it's using paypal then currency conversion shouldn't be a problem.

Hitman Absolution.

Fiver over on the Square Enix website. Gives you a code to put into steam, where oddly its still showing as £20, job done

Anyway, enjoyed the original Hitman way back when and IGN gave this new one 9/10 so looking forward to it.

1.4 of 11gb downloaded.....

: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: James Stacey 21 March, 2013, 03:31:05 PM
It's still the same old FFVII, just tweaked to play on current PCs and an added cheevo system (which is no bad thing). Squenix have said they'll never do a revamped FFVII till they produce a game better than it, which seems unlikely.
: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: bluemeanie 21 March, 2013, 04:23:38 PM
Yeah? I thought they'd tidied up the graphics for this version and made it all higher rez.

But yeah... I want this. Want to have it on my pc. Dunno if I want to start it again though as I lost a LOT of hours to this back on my old playstation. Absolutely loved it.
Anyone seen Final Fantasy Advent Children btw? Well worth a look if you're a fan of FF7
: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: James Stacey 21 March, 2013, 04:33:04 PM
It's higher res insofar as it will play at higher resolutions than was possible on the PS1, so it will look crisper, but they haven't upped any polygon counts or textures. There was a techdemo of FFVII done to launch the PS3 which is itself showing its age http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IVCYy8C5Av4 but that was as far as they got.

I'm not sure. The current games are pretty huge and unlike a gamble with any new game a redux of 7 would be a guaranteed hit. They've updated several of the earlier games ( admittedly for handhelds). I'd buy the crap out of it.

What would you recommend?
: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: Rog69 22 March, 2013, 10:52:50 PM
The ones that immediately jumped out at me (I already own them) were-

Amnesia - The dark descent, one of the scariest games I ever played (play it in the dark with headphones on if you dare).
Trine 1 & 2 are very pretty physics based platform / puzzlers.
Legend of Grimrock - Old school dungeon master style RPG.
World of Goo - physics based construction / puzzler.
Limbo - Arty platform / puzzle game.
Terraria - quite good, kind of like a 2D version of minecraft.

I'm thinking of getting Machinarium, Deadlight and Miner Wars 2081 if I can justify buying even more games that I don't have time to play :)

According to their facebook page the Sniper Elite games will all be getting discounted on Steam for a 24hr period. Nazi Zombie Army is dropping 33% I think so I'll be grabbing that.

They don't seem too sure when it'll be happening (they announced it and then apologized it wasn't up yet) but I'm assuming today sometime.

Marvel Heroes is a free-to-play Massively Multiplayer Action RPG for PC created by David Brevik, the visionary behind Diablo and Diablo 2 with an extensive original story crafted by Marvel super-scribe Brian Michael Bendis.

Apparently the Fable 3 freebie is part of a new service, they're going to be doing a bit of a playstation plus and giving gold members a couple of free games a month (I believe Halo 3 and Assassin's Creed 2 are the next couple).

A lot of people are bitching that it's not as generous as playstation plus, but as I've already got gold this is a just a really nice bonus.

Anyone have any theories on how this is going to work on the next gen consoles? Neither Xbox One or PS4 are backward compatible so what are new customers going to get for their free games each month? Will it be ported versions of 360 / PS3 games or free indie titles?
Giving away indie titles is fine but it hardly seems as good a deal as getting premium titles like Fable 3 or AC 2.

I'm currently playing Machwarrior Online, very proffesional Free to Play PC game based on the old Battletech 3050 tabletop game and the old Mechwarrior PC games.  Unfortunatly no single player and if you dont want to drop any $ a bit of a grind to get enough C-Bills to get a new Mech but lots of fun and very competent, its certainly not Pay to Win like a lot of these so called free to play games but certainly good enough to get me to drop a few $ on camo scemes, paint and the like to give the developers what they deserve.

Played the most recent once, Guerllia, recently and it felt very dated. Fun blowing stuff up for a little while, though.

Haven't tried any others. I think they are all iterations of each other. It depends on how much you like blowing up buildings and other stuff.

The Red Faction before last was prob the best one, IMHO. The buildings were all totally destructible!  It was free roaming too.

I dont think its a direct result of the E3 debacle, theyre just trying to compete directly with Sony. Sony's Playstation Plus service has been offering free games for a long time now, and they actually offer some quite recent and fantastic games (so MS have lots of work to do still). theres potential for MS to lose plenty of its userbase with the coming of a new generation.

Now Aliens: Colonial Marines £3.74 on Steam...  :o

The campaign lasts about 7 hours though this was on the RECRUIT the easiest level. The gameplay is a little leaden but  you get a choice of weaponry assault rifle,shotgun etc and can even find guns from the Movie 'Aliens' like Vesquez's Smart gun,frosts flamethrower.

Guns can be upgraded by earning points enabling you to obtain silencers or better explosive grenades but the Smart gun is something you acquire in the game; it's not a default weapon and you soon burn through it's 600 rounds anyway so if you fancied yourself blazing away like Drake, it happens but very rarely. The weapons are ok but the Aliens can take a lot of damage and I found myself firing with the assault rifle only to see the Alien warrior I'd been blastin' leap at me, seemingly unaffected by 10mm hailstorm. Controlled bursts and try and hit the head if you can.

It's very linear; go to here, fight Aliens; go to this corridor, fight more Aliens. You get buddies who accompany you a lot of the time but they can be a mixed blessing firing at some Aliens while apparently oblivious to other ones so the AI isn't great. If an Alien gets close and you shoot it your armour is usually damaged by about a third as the acid explodes everywhere which is pretty annoying. Theres a quite a bit of ammunition but I did run out of bullets on one gun the battle rifle and a shotgun too but if you press 'B' [on  the PC]  and select a new one it's fully stocked with ammo.  This is something I found out on the internet the hud for the game is very poor info wise. Only the upgrade page was clear and informative.

There is a 'sneak through' where you are weaponless, surrounded by Aliens and have to make as little noise as possible or die which some gamers dislike intensely and your weapons don't effect the Pred-alien  or make much of an impact on the Alien Queen either -so why bother having them if there so useless Game makers? Xenos filth aren't the only enemy evil Weyland Yutani corporate mercenaries can be tough too particularly if they got a Sentry gun with them.

Basically if you didn't like Aliens vs Predators you properly won't care for Colonial Marines. Is it worth £3.74?

Let's put it this way you shouldn't pay a penny more for it IMHO.
: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: bluemeanie 03 September, 2013, 12:03:56 AM
Yeah, def worth £3.74. It's back to £15 now. For that I'd say it's only for the hardcore Alien completist.

Cant tell if it's still free, won't show the price now I got it, but Star Wars pinball was a giveaway this morning. Only gives you the one table but for bugger all it's well worth it. Plays really nice on the ipad, might be a bit tight on an iphone screen. Free tho so give it a shot.
You get the Empire Strikes Back table. There's also Boba Fett and Clone Wars ones as in-app purchases

For any fans of old school point and click adventures I just picked up The Next Big Thing for £1.74

Actually I got it for free as I had £2 in my steam wallet from selling spray painted variants of Counter Strike guns I'd got as free random drops in the marketplace. Fuck knows why people are willing to pay real cash for these. Granted it's only 50p or so a pop but still... its the same gun with a paint job!

Anyway, looks like a cool one. Beautiful art style. And if it's not... cost bugger all

There's an interesting zombie game on Steam atm...Zafehouse diaries only £7.  It's unusual in theres seems to be no shooting, just the managing of a bunch of survivors. You have to decide who to let into the group and stop said group from imploding. Haven't played it myself and if i hadn't just got the Walking Dead and Sniper Elite Nazi Zombie...I probably would have.
So if anyone has played Zafehouse..whats it like?

Not a bad little pack of action games for £7.99

Just don't tell Alex Ronald as I'm pretty sure he paid more than the bundle price for AvP a week or so back  :-\

Another awesome humble bundle up

for £2.50 I just got Fez, FTL, Mark of the Ninja, Trine 2, Brutal Legend and Eets Munchies

Already know Fez is brilliant and Brutal Legend is a LOT more fun than it should be bearing in mind my dislike of Jack Black. Wasn't too keen on the tower defence/RTS portions but the driving and hack/slash was a lot of fun

I've just pre-ordered Arkham Origins from Amazon for £30.00 which seemed pretty cheap to me.
It's worth pre-ordering if you like the challenge maps because you get to play as Deathstroke. I think there's some Knightfall content too.

As an added bonus, the Arkham games have now had the execrable Games for Windows Live and Securerom DRM patched out of them in favour of Steamworks  :D.

Also, if you already own the games on Steam (you can add the key from retail versions to Steam too) they have upgraded them to the GOTY editions with all the DLC thrown in free  :).

The only downside is that save files are not compatible, so if you are part way through like I am with AC then you will lose your progress. There is a fiddly workaround I believe though but I am pondering starting again anyway.

I couldn't be happier seeing the death of GFWL, I hope devs continue to patch it out of existing games like this before they pull the plug on it for good next year.

If they patch it out of Fallout3 then that would give me an excuse to go through it again :D
: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: Rog69 19 October, 2013, 06:50:10 PM
Ditto here too, I deliberately bought Fallout 3 for the PS3 to avoid GFWL and missed out on all the mods etc so I would probably pick it up for the PC if they fix it.

There are other games where it is being patched out too, Bioshock 2 was cleansed last month so that is on my shopping list come the next Steam sale.

ARGOS are doing a NINTENDO 2DS (it's a 3DS without the 3D or clamshell design - I think in every other respect, the functionality is the same) for a fabulous £99 until 29th October.

That's a bit of a bargain in my eyes - the 3DS is a spectacularly good console with some cracking games available for it.

So if the 3D has put you off previously, here's a fine price get on board.

http://store.steampowered.com/sale/halloween2013

Few I'd recommend -

Left4Dead 1 & 2
Walking Dead
Aliens Colonial Marines (not at full price but for under £4)
Sleeping Dogs
Limbo
and while I havent played yet I've only heard great things about Fallout3 and Fallout New Vegas so as both ultimate editions are up for under £4 it's probably the best time to grab 'em

Halo 3 was great when it came out six years ago. The games that Microsoft have been giving out are so old that there's no other way they would shift em. They're all stuff you can pick up for £2 in shops or fleabay.

Just came here to post the same thing.

Better get in quick though, there's a forced waiting period - I signed up for the free copy this morning, and was told I was in a line and would be emailed when I could claim the game...and I still haven't received that email...

New Humble Indie Bundle - https://www.humblebundle.com/

Pay what you want, get a bundle of games, all completely legal.

Paid £2.50 for a bundle of all of the following games on Steam (but also available non-Steam DRM-free):

Guacamelee - fun and stylish platformer
Dust: An Elysian Tail - cutesy anthropomorphic animal platformer.  Haven't played this yet.
Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams - played the demo.  Evil platformer sequel to the 16-bit Mario rip-off.
The Swapper - action puzzler with claymotion visuals, looks interesting.
Antichamber - brilliant 1st person Escher-inspired craziness.  Will really screw your mind.
Monaco: What's Yours is Mine - 2d stealth multiplayer with single player available, haven't installed this yet.

Plus more games to be added to the bundle over the coming days. 

But don't be cheap like me, pay well over the average and support both indie devs and charity...

Titanfall PC pre-order for £27.99 - http://www.simplycdkeys.com/origin/titanfall (http://www.simplycdkeys.com/origin/titanfall)

The price is for the CD key only, they email the key to you the day before release and you add it to your Origin account. I've pre-ordered it myself from here. I've never used them myself before but after a little Googling they seem legit.

A bit cheaper than the £45 EA want if you order it directly through Origin  :).

Yeah they're a nice open-world parkourtastic lark - the controls are a bit awkward on the PC but you're certainly getting a lot of game for that much. I got one & two for £5 a couple of months ago and it were worth it I'd say.

Ultimate edition of Injustice Gods Among Us is £5.74 at the moment.
Well worth that, especially if you are partial to a bit of DC comics

Even if not it's a kickass fighting game. Very mortal kombat (the new edition of which is also cheap at the moment) but less blood and guts obviously. I'm enjoying the hell out of it. I suck at it but it's still fun to play.

Spec ops makes you do this  :o

More like:  :)  :|  :o  :(  :'(  :'(  :'(  >:(  :(  >:(  :(  >:(  :( and so on until you come to:  :'( :'( :'(. Here's my vague recommendation of sorts to hopefully pique some curiosity about it...

It's not very often I quit games to "take a break" from them, with an intention of revisiting them later. Typically I only do so because something else grabs my attention instead, and I only ever abandon a game I paid money for completely if I find it too shit to continue (e.g. F.E.A.R. 3 that I wasted several hours of my life on before uninstalling it), but I occasionally stop playing a game for a specific reason tied to it. For example, with stress levels at their peak by the time I reached the Prison area of Amnesia: The Dark Descent, I simply could not go on any longer and gave it a few days break (which didn't help when I returned, mind you). Without spoiling why, let's just say that The Line (which should have been the only part of its title really) made me feel...rather bad to be playing.

The only other game I can think of off the top of my head that I had a similar reaction with is Far Cry 2 (although not the third game, which is actually trying to be very similar to The Line, I feel, difference being that it fails miserably) in which the guy you spend the whole game trying to kill gives you a reality check. The difference is: whereas my reaction there was a thoughtful "Huh" as I contemplated this and carried on, my reaction with The Line was more along the lines of, "Oh dear god, what have I done?!??" and carrying on, a weird mixture of feeling guilty, sad and angry all at once.

It's not long enough like Amnesia that you may quit several times yet find plenty left to do when you return. No, I only quit the two or three times with this. But - without spoiling what happens - I will say that there is one single moment in this game, the brilliantly executed turning point of the story, that I can almost guarantee would make you jump to the main menu and quit the fucking thing, even if you have never quit a game for any specific reason before.

How the game, and the player's perspective to it, changes from this point onwards I think is what decides whether you'll quit completely or reluctantly go on, and if that all sounds melodramatic, I would counter with the point that it's perhaps the only game you can read very serious forum posts and the like from players in moral dilemma about continuing to play.

It's a fun game like that (an intentionally generic third person shooter actually, though I won't spoil why), but it's a damn well brilliantly designed one and definitely worth soldiering on through once. Unless you were admiring the design of it or researching it like some guy did for a book he wrote on it alone (an eBook called Killing is Harmless if you're curious), however, I can't honestly see a reason to want to touch it ever again once you're done. It's a bad, bad game but, um, you should play it...?
: Re: Freebies and/or bargains
: Keef Monkey 10 July, 2014, 09:19:46 AM
Have to admit I don’t really get the fuss with that game. I thought it was an ok shooter, and there were a couple of bits that made me feel a little bit of The Horror Of War, but I think after everyone making a huge deal about the story and the narrative I maybe expected it to do more with it. It wasn’t all that interesting and I spent the whole thing right from the start thinking ‘I bet it ends with <insert spoiler>, nah, that would be way too obvious and would make no sense’. And then it ended just like that.

It gets kudos points for scoring one gunfight to ‘Glasgow Mega Snake’ by Mogwai, but loses them again for the audio department not even bothering to find a loop point in the song so it repeats smoothly if the gunfight drags on longer than the track. It just stops really abruptly and then starts again from the beginning after a few seconds silence. 5mins work that would have taken.

So aye, afraid I'm a bit lukewarm on Spec Ops. Still well worth playing for the price though, and the other games in the pack are fantastic.

It wasn’t all that interesting and I spent the whole thing right from the start thinking ‘I bet it ends with <insert spoiler>, nah, that would be way too obvious and would make no sense’. And then it ended just like that.

The ending was predictable for me too, but that was because one of the guys working on it mentioned Apocalypse Now / Heart of Darkness (another reason why Far Cry 2 is similar) as inspiration running up to release, I believe. You can see the influence as soon as you get into it anyway, which I suppose does make it predictable; but then again, going by the audience they were aiming the game at, I'm sure it still surprised many people, hence the big fuss over it.

WARNING: SPOILERS OF SORTS FROM HERE ON OUT

And to be honest, I think it does deserve the praise. Unlike Far Cry 3, it does a far better job at making you hate seeing the game through to the end (if you do at all), which was a problem in Far Cry 3's case because that game was way too much fun (once I installed Ziggy's Mod anyway) for you to possibly feel the guilt the developers were aiming for. That wasn't a problem with The Line, not only because it wasn't really much fun in the gameplay department (if it were, as the developers cleverly avoided, it simply wouldn't have worked), but because the writing was much better too.

From Far Cry 3's beginning I couldn't get behind Brody as the character as I was playing as and certainly felt no guilt by the game's stupid ending, but The Line reversed that idea by having the player grow more distant from Walker instead, as he begins to, for example, sound like the kind of excited teenagers you hear using mics on online multiplayer shooters as you direct him to kill more people. It's excellent little design decisions like that that really pulled me in its favour. Besides the obviously clever choice of setting, who your "enemies" are, and what your own role in the game world is from the outset (one particularly brilliant rug pull is the reminder at the end of the game that you were only supposed to recon the area; not go charging in - but the thought never really crosses your mind as a player), the game's simply filled with a lot of much smaller touches, some of which the devs pointed out in interviews after release, that really pull the experience together tremendously well.

There's the level design with its symbolism scattered around the place; there's its gameplay mechanics, which don't change over the course of the game at all, but the player's willingness to perhaps use them do (the executions you can perform as a melee attack are a useful tool throughout the game, but they become increasingly more violent as Walker develops as a character, straying very far away from the immediate kills or knockouts of before; and the slow motion headshots cease to be all that exciting either); there's the very subtle things that reflect Walker's state of mind, many of which certainly went unnoticed in my case (there's different meanings to how the game fades out from cutscenes to either black or white, which I highly doubt anyone noticed on their playthrough), not mention the slow change in the two side characters as well; and hell, there's even the choice of who should voice the player's character, who some genius at Yager decided had to be Nolan North, none other than Nathan Drake of the Uncharted trilogy.

So, yeah, I think it's brilliant. A merely okay shooter, yes, and therefore a game with mediocre gameplay, but it's a game masterfully designed, I feel, and what I think's especially amazing is that all these little things only feed the game's narrative and the player's experience of the game, rather than overcomplicating it.

The only other thing I would point out, which perhaps plays a part in deciding what you think about the game as a whole, is its target audience, which is of course fans of shooters. If you're intimate with those I think you can appreciate the game a great deal more for what it does. Here's a game that begins in medias res with you firing a minigun from a helicopter, a typical on-rails shooting gallery moment from your average linear shooter. A few hours later and the developers deliver a punch to the gut that changes your perspective of the game entirely, and those it's replicating the gameplay of. By the end they all but break the fourth wall through a character who asks you a brilliantly delivered question - a question I won't spoil, of course, but to which the answer is simply a sad "No" by that point - as you take an elevator to one of three pretty fucking devastating endings.

...I'ma shut up now. :-X

: ThryllSeekyr 12 July, 2014, 09:48:32 AM
I've been playing RUST and it's brutally bloody brilliant game. For all of it's lack of polish, and logic that just doesn't make sense to me. I've become addicted to playing it almost non stop until I could afford to make a wooden cabin (Not the pre-fab Wooden-Shelter, but a real cabin with it's own foundation, walls, window and roof!) which needs to be made from planks, which use up a lot of wood from the trees.

 Now that I have a sleeping bag to put I've stopped playing.....for now!

I have been killed by other player just four times, but mainly on other different servers.

The second I got so pissed off about this, that I ended up raiding the boxes in two shelters, that I had found left open. Yet, I tried to give back the Pick-Axe, Blood-Draw-Kit, (Just what the hell do you need blood for in this game?) Gunpowder, (But no gun!) and tried return them to the exact location where I found them when I had otherwise equipped myself. Yet, got so lost, I had problems relocating the building/structures where I found and died of starvation before I could get any further.

A lot of the other reasons for my dying, seem like such dumb mistakes on my part.....

It might have been just didn't travel far enough to find enough food grazing in the grass or taking on bear or wolf before worked out how to fire at them while running backwards with a bow and arrow in my hand.

Though, I don't understand why I can option rare items from killing the wolves and bears and even more rare items from their mutated counterparts.

Also dying from a bleeding wound taken from falling or the above mentioned wandering predators. Wether, I could prepare for this before (Like having food (It's always chicken, no matter what animal it's taken from!) and camp-fire set-up or in my inventory before-hand) I start hurting too badly and then dying.

I would often build the most ruditmentary of bases right at the top of those rocky places and forget how to relocate them and then start building all over again somewhere else.

I remember one time, when I had survived about three or four nights after leaving wooden shelters, surrounded by wooden walls  and filled them with a work-bench, a forge or kiln and left storage-boxes on the top of foundations because that game server wouldn't allow me to put them anywhere safer. I had amassed a lot of wood from the wood piles and trees, and a lot of various types of stone and got killed by a bear I couldn't shoot properly.

On one server the four legged animals were virtually non-existent and I just died from their lack of involvement in my game. I now realise that I was meant to just hunt other players on that one.

While, I'm setting up my base...(Something that I am most admittedly very slow at...) I do try to avoid other players and will just collect or hunt for resources while sneaking in the long grass if I hear a lot of gunshot or see them hunting animals or each other. It's best to avoid the settlements and other peoples building. Otherwise they will find me and shoot me for resource gathering on what they perceive to be their own territory. In this game, I thinks it's basically anything that it's watched, tied downed or have a fence or wall around is anybodies for the taking. Of course, I would hate this happen in real life. (Or does it :o)

I would find the most resources on most game servers to be more plentiful near where they are settlements and other player's buildings/structures/guards-towers and other fortications.

Natureally..... :-\

Anyway, I have been approached by some friendly players (At least they were or were pretending to be...) who wanted to group, trade or just help and let them know I really wanted to get my shit together before I start grouping. I think it's a unwritten law that you must prove you can survive in this game while contributing to it yourself before trusting compete stranger or even people you my know in real life that play the game. I know I would turn my back on any of the people I know.

I have noticed that other players on one server where surprising friendly when I said I was lost and wanted to return some stuff I raided, but never used and couldn't find the buildings I found them in. (Mentioned earlier.)  Yeah, put up with my bullshit for while and even the one that shot me in a earlier game said I sounded like descent fella. I eventually succumbed to starvation after wandering in a large area where there was no grazers.

I really want to set myself up in this game before I get to much help from others.

Right now I have that building built and for the first time I got left my sleeping bag in it. It's supposed to allow me to re-spawn there if I die. Yet, I disconnected from the game while I was in the process of starving. The cabin I built is just below some large but squat grassy hills. There doesn't appear to be any life other than trees and rocks for leages around me and I'm still completely naked.

Well, at least I will respawn back there when I die.

Some things I don't understand about the game.

Trees, remain where they are...still standing after I've chopped wood from them.

I can do this with just the starter-rock in my hand. (Yet, at least that is a step up from punching trees in Mine-Craft.)

I can carry a lot of materials, as well as very large items like wooden-planks, and other large building materials I've crafted without the use of a wagon to carry them in. That is hard to ignore.

Being able to obtain, more advance mining-implements, advanced fire-arms and blue-prints from killing wolves and bears. There is a history of this happening a lot in games that can be drawn as far back as the original Bard's-Tale series.   

Yet, I understand, this game is still in Alpha or Beta and they wil be improving it and adding more stuff I hope.

Stuff, I want to see....

Ranches, where there are horses, that can be ridden and farms where there smaller animals being bred and raised for food as well as grown food.

Hi-Tech-Upgrades...like Laser weapons, power-suits and eventually cars, trucks, planes and space-ships.

Now, I go back to playing more of Elite-Dangerous...I been playing both games back to back.

Sorry about the longish post, but can't help it and I read somewhere that I'm now not really supposed to say much about games still in development, but oh well....

I think played Rust for almost 24 hrs straight....almost, before the grind of endlessly tree/stone/animal-chopping was really getting to me. But I was determined to build a safe enough base away from most of the conflict in the game.

I found mostly quiet area, a valley of flat rolling plains in between two mountain ranges dotted with clumps of stone/metal and logs of wood. Some grass-nibbling-prey-animals that always have the four legged carnivors close by keeping their numbers down.

As I would decimate them all, one by one methodically with my bow and seemlingly endless array of arrows. With not a thought towards how much I might be altering or destroying this biom with my wanton destruction of most of the animals and other resources.

At the time I was thinking...if I kept killing all the wolves and bears, the more peaceful animals would be more plentiful or if I killed all grazers, then the carnivores would (Not sure if Bears are truly carnivores, but I do know they like fish, but it's not really even considered to be meat in the true sense.) need to turn to cannibalism, the other players and start raiding towns before they would die out from their usual source of food. Anyway, this was just my thoughts.....

Game are doing second hand Watch Dogs for £15 and new Alien Isolation for £20 on PS4 / Xbone

Are either worth getting?

Alien Isolation for £20 on PS4 / Xbone


It's definitely on my hit list, and that's a great price for a new release.

I loved them all and highly recommend them. The end of the second one is highly creepy and very, very Manga-esque odd.

Typing of The Dead : Overkill is currently under a fiver on Steam.

What isn't immediately apparent, is that you can also just play it as yer standard House of The Dead : Overkill, if you don't like the concept of explodifying zombies to bits by tapping out stuff like "wonky donkey" at them.

Another Doctor Who Humble Bundle (https://www.humblebundle.com/books/doctor-who-comics-2), although duplicating a lot of what was in the IDW one.

Looking at that, if you don't have the old IDW Who comics but like the character, that $1 tier is astonishingly good value.

Not free (the service is £19.99 for a year or I think £3 or so if you just want a month at a time) but EA are adding Star Wars Battlefront and Mirror's Edge Catalyst to the vault in their XB1 EA Access service thing.

Pretty good news, both games I've been keen to play and there's now enough in the vault that the spend feels worth it to me!

Wolfenstein: Old Blood is currently £3.99 on PS4. I'm about halfway through at the moment and although the game does nothing new it's still a solid shooter. Even on the 'Normal' setting it's mad, hectic fun. Dual wielding shotguns and Automatic weapons hasn't been this much fun since Time splitters 2!

Any thoughts on these?
