    New Bundles!

    Humble Bundle with Android 6


    Includes for $1:

    Beat the Average for:

    Fantastic bundle with classics like Aquaria and fairly new / re-released / updated games like Stealth Bastard Deluxe and a "modern", zombie-themed Organ Trail.
    Frozen Synapse especially takes the cake due to great turn-based strategy gameplay, and Broken Sword is one of the few games with a french setting that I can stomach.

    Indie Royale: The Chosen Bundle 2



    Stellar bundle, Eufloria's great, if not for everyone, Runespell is a fairly decent card-based game and Cthulhu Saves the World and Breath of Death VII are fantastic, classic SNES-style RPGs with a very nice parody vibe.

    Indie Gala June


    Includes in Tier 1:

    Includes in Tier 2:

    Includes in Tier 3:

    Solid bundle. Worth it for Sword of the Stars alone, I guess, or alternatively for the two included Daedalic games - Edna & Harvey and A New Beginning. Very well-rounded and should serve to every niche.

    FREE DRM-Free copy of Torchlight on GOG!

    Another Day or so left to grab it for free!


    Two more Bundles by Groupees are scheduled to release in a couple of hours!

    HUGE deals all over the site. Go take a look!


    There are MANY more Games on Sale! Check them out on the site!

    Especially the Definitive Dungeons and Dragons bundle is incredible, $21.10 for Planescape: Torment, Baldur's Gate, Baldur's Gate 2, Icewind Dale, Icewind Dale 2, Neverwinter Nights, Neverwinter Nights 2, Temple of Elemental Evil, Demon Stone and Dragonshard, pre'much all of 'em critically acclaimed classics
    You should, however, expect to have to apply a patch or two to fine-tune those old games for modern displays and hardware. The GOG forum has all the answers and links to that, though.

    To The Moon for $4.99 or for $18.69 Bundled with other above-average Indie games is another heartfelt recommendation - that game is PURE beauty and a very emotional ride.

    Hotline Miami for $3.33? Hell yes, buy it, buy it now, if you have not picked it up during the recent Humble Bundle 8!

    FEZ is down to $4.99. If you can stay your hand for a moment and stop in the Phil Fish witchhunt, you might just get your hands on a very nice indie gem.

    The Wadjet Eye Selection comes with some VERY good oldschool Point & Click adventures with very neat plots. Resonance alone is probably worth it already, but you also get Primordia, the whole Blackwell Bundle and Gemini Rue! Prepare for hours of solving clever environment-based riddles in a 2D world - just like in the good old days.

    FTL: Faster Than Light is very hard not to recommend - buy it, it is $2.49, I have never seen it at this low a price before, and it is a massive timesink.

    The Kain and Raziel Saga bundle gets you the classic Legacy of Kain series and Blood Omen 2, which sadly have not received a proper sequel in many many years....

    Fahrenheit aka Indigo Prophecy needs to be on this list as well - this is one of Quantic Dream's earlier interactive movie-ish games, but a very good one. The game goes bonkers during the last hour or so, but hell, it is entertaining and intriguing. At $2.99, it is a steal

    But Ladies and Gentlemen, we've got us a sweet 50% deal on System Shock 2, bringing it down to $4.99!
    If you liked Bioshock, you'll probably love this one, as it is the predecessor of Bioshock, though of a more hardcore level, with less handholding and more features. It is also employing survival horror elements, ammo is scarce, so you'll have to find other ways through the space station! BUY IT!

    I wouldn't be taken in by the ArmA Recruitment pack.

    It does look good but from eye glance I can't tell if you get the Resistance pack for ArmA Cold War Assault along with Operation Arrowhead. British Armed Forces and Private Military Contractors. ArmA 2 is a fun game but I've found Operation Arrowhead to be more popular and generally is more stable and playable than ArmA2 which has some really weird FPS issues even on high end PC's.

    The sale as the name suggests is trying to interest you into ArmA along with giving you the ability to play the Day Z mod which they are recently picking up on as an advertisement campaign for ArmA2

    As I said at the start value is good but if you want the full enjoyment of the series look into the anniversary edition or wait till the whole set is on offer.

    @Ecstasy what happened?

    So far I've only bought Afterfall: Insanity, since it was below 2,40€ (still is, I reckon), and will be getting trading cards in a few days, which I can sell on the market.

    Would definitely recommend The Walking Dead, which is a current Daily deal (dailies are 48 hours, funnily enough) and everything Darksiders (80%, booyah).
    Stay the hell away from Sniper: Ghost Warrior, though. God-awful and not at all what you wish for...

  6. #608622013-07-13 08:32:16DarkChaplain said:

    I hope you bought Darksiders 1 and 2, and the Argul's Tomb and Season Pass (Abyssal Forge and Lord Demon Belial) DLC. Also Death Rides, which is the one DLC which adds quests and dialogue throughout the main storyline, while the other three are for much later and pretty much separate from the main story.

    You can thank me later.

    @DarkChaplain: Forge doesn't seem like my sort of game but I can't let you not have UT so I'll do the trade. ;D

    EDIT: I have a copy reserved for you so no worries.

    That'd be great!
    Wait, was that your invite I got over night? Because I thought it was /another/ random TF2 trader who would just go "hello" or "hi" without saying anything else every few hours/days and annoy the living shit out of me once I'd reject his begging - IT HAPPENS ALL THE TIME!
