  1. Its broken! Its janky! It requires mods to work properly! Its also a lot of fun. Feel Boss at
  2. Also, the Sierra Bundle's back on. There's some alright-ish stuff there if you like putting your fist through a wall. Internet walkthroughs didn't exist when I played those. Steam Winter Sale is on, but its the same sad old shit. Doom and Invisible Inc. fairly cheap though.
  3. Yes, you'll need UPlay. Yes, its sad that manufacturers churn out their own shitty Steam replicas. Despite this, free games fuckers. Move fast. Prince of Persia Sands of Time, Splinter Cell 1, Rayman Origins, The Crew, Beyond Good and Evil, Far Cry Blood Dragon and Assassassassassin's Creed 3. Its a pretty awesome line up, and even if AC3 is a bit dull it does have the first iteration of shippies.
  4. They don't get much older than this. Smartarse 'oldest rap' stuff aside, this is a real eye (and ear) opener if you're unfamiliar.
  5. Well, this is somewhat divisive. Were these a) some of the best point and click adventure games ever or b) some of the most face-punchingly stupid and unfair games ever? Personally, I'm in the latter camp, but nostalgia does horrible things to some people who have fond memories of games that allow you to miss a hidden and crucial item. Then require you to have it several hours later when you cannot go back. On the plus side, $1 does get you the hilariously bad Phantasmagoria (and also the Police and Space Quest games. Yeah, Sierra really pushed the boat out with imaginative game titles).
  6. For the record, Mafia 2 is Not Shit (TM). It is however, a thoroughly bizarre game that gives you a nice open world to wander around in...with nothing to do in it. Its do the missions or fuck off. Or run people over. These things happen. As for the Civ 5 comments, I'm now pretty damn sure the unrevealed stuff will be the expansions so you may want to hang on. If however they turn out to be seven copies of Lance Armstrong's Race Into Excrement 2K16, Spec Ops is still a dollar regardless.
  7. Off the bat, ONE MISERABLE FUCKING DOLLAR will get you Spec Ops: The Line. Which is GREAT. It will also get you The Darkness 2. Which is FUN, if A BIT DATED. Additionally, it will get you DUKE NUKEM FOREVER. Which is DUKE NUKEM FOREVER. SADLY. 7 to 8 dollars at present will get Civ 5, Mafia 2 and some basketball game. Expect the extras at this tier to be Civ expansions or possibly Borderlands related. 15 gets you Battleborn, which tells you an awful lot about its sales figures. Also Borderlands Pre Sequel. Please get Spec Ops. Its worth it.
  8. This month, it be Splinter Cell. Arrr. Still a nice looking game this far down the line. Controls and gun accuracy can be a little wonky, but overall stands up well. Dates from the time of variable lighting, rather than the modern 'visible/not visible' To be honest, its been a nice surprise they're throwing out good games (so far) rather than a bundle of turds under some form of 'Classic' label used with no irony whatsoever. Yes, you'll need Uplay.
  9. Yes, popular clients they are not. That being said, in the red corner of hatred you can get Prince of Persia: Sands of Time for free on Uplay right now, while in the blue corner of vindictiveness there is Nox on Origin.
  10. No. From the company that gave you Goldeneye, much much later.
  11. Steam may now be run by miserable bastards who think what people want is sales of 50% off ten year old games so Activision don't get upset, but there's always with sales of 75% off twenty year old ones.. Highlights at the moment include the Lucasarts pack and Planescape & co. Some free stuff occurring throughout, but opening with System Shock 2 free for the first two days. Hot piss! Edit: probably fair to mention you need to install the GOG Galaxy client to get it. It looks a bit arse these days, but this can be fixed up quite a bit with Like the old Thief games, the visuals may be dated, but by Karras the sound design is absolutely timeless. Remarkable achievements.
  12. Balls to the lot of you.
  13. Added to Telltale bundle: Jurassic Park, this probably has received the worst ever writeup of anything done by Telltale, haven't played. Strong Bad, also haven't played. Seriously, there's enough stuff in this bundle to keep you going for weeks.
  14. Right, this is pretty superb right here. You can stuff the Poker Night games, but everything else is well worth bagging. $1 gets you the rather good Wanking Dead Series 1, the Puzzle Agent games, one of the Sam and Max series and the slightly inconsistent Back to the Future. Step up from that gets you A Wolf Among Us and Tales from the Borderlands. Both are genuinely excellent. Step up further gets Wanks 2 (not as good as the aformentioned 1, but still good) and Game of Thrones, which I haven't played. Unless you hate their games, or are a bit of an adventure game puritan (Sierra games in the days before online walkthroughs? Fuck you) you really should pick these up. The other bundle available right now ain't bad either ($1 for Chivalry, Brothers). As an added bonus, Medal of Honor Pacific Assault is free on Origin right now. This has been a public service announcement. Would you like to know more?
  15. Very true, but the faction packs in Shogun 2 were more of a case of 'oh look, another faction with the same bloody units' rather than something with a bit more variety. A bit. Shogun 2 was actually pretty competent, but always suffered with me because I couldn't give a shit about the history there. Realm Divide, while initially hideous (pretty devastating the first time around, eh?) was actually a really good way of keeping you playing rather than the usual stockpile money then flatten everyone process. So much better than the initial way Civil War was implemented in Rome 2, which was absolute bum. Remains to be seen what they'll do to maintain interest in Warhammer; I'm not convinced. The roster is not very expansive or impressive either. Spearmen. Or spearmen NOW WITH ADDED SHIELDS. Medieval 3 please.
