Heroes III is just amazing. The map free for all is so good

ID: gpym37r

Darkest Dungeon and all the expansions for $10 is a hilarious value.

ID: gpyt8xw

Civ 3 and 4 were such a large part of my life growing up. It’s amazing to think you can now get both for a combined total of 9 bucks.

Between them you could probably spend a few lifetimes and not get bored.

ID: gpytjrv

question for Civ fans in the thread. I was a late bloomer and didnt start playing until civ 5. would civ 4 be fun to try and play for someone who has only played 5 and 6?

Homeworld remastered for $3.49 is a steal. Still one of my favorite series of all time.

Steam has XCOM & XCOM 2 Ultimate bundles which are great if you already have most of the games + DLC and are only missing a few - Its 80-90% off depending on if you only need the DLC, like this

I'm disappointed that Neowin didnt include it.

ID: gpz8og0

RDR2 is also 33% off on Humble, and it stacks with the Choice discount.

ID: gq0ruhp

Wingman was 20$ on steam for me and 24 was the normal price

ID: gpzi850

Shitty thing about G0G is that it stays in an online library and cannot be transferred to steam, that I know of.

ID: gpz7z1f

If something is available on both Steam and GOG what would you pick? I haven't used GOG yet (just getting back into gaming and none of the few games I've got yet is available on it) but I like helping out the underdog and also I like that they are DRM free.

Asked another way, are there any cons to choosing GOG? Are they missing any crucial features that Steam provides?

ID: gq0b4ec

Haha shit I thought the new Story Of Seasons game was already on sale when I saw Harvest Moon and then I remembered the whole Natsume split thing.

Deep Rock Galactic is really fun to play with friends and super easy to get into.

Started playing this with some mates on the free weekend and its becoming our go2game for chilling out in discord and derping around.

it really got its on charm when it comes to graphics. I enjoy how some colours pop in the dark, how your flares illuminate the caverns

ID: gpyygsz

Rock and Stone!

ID: gpz6yxq

Rock and Stone !! prob one of the best co-op games ever made imho

ID: gq02eg4

For rock and stone!

ID: gpz96s8

Rock and stone to the bone!

Same tho this game is a great discord and chill game

ID: gpzu5nz

Literally same here! Been eyeing it for a while, and it clicked with all 4 of us. A great combination of simplicity but depth and progression. Good casual game to play that still gets plenty hectic at times.

ID: gq25osf

I played during the free weekend and liked it a lot. Unfortunately it crashed twice during missions. Running on Linux with Proton. If anyone runs on Linux and has figured out a fix for crashes, I would be interested.

Last week I picked up Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines. Its a great game (with the unnoficial patch), so thanks for letting me know about that deal!

ID: gpz1j6f

The sequel seems to be in development hell unfortunately.

ID: gpz7cz2

Check the sub for it as well as the unofficial patches. Fucking fantastic game

ID: gq1f44w

Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines is one of the best games I have ever played. It was a buggy mess when I first played it but I loved every second.

ID: gq0x21l

Easily one of the greatest games of all time.

5 : Anonymous2021/03/06 13:57 ID: gpy8xwc

Is Sid Meier’s Pirates! any good? Just finished reading his book, and interested to try it but never heard much about it...

ID: gpycpsy

I have no idea how well Pirates! have aged, but that was probably the game I spent the most time with on my Commodore 64 and later Amiga 500/1200.
It was fun to build up an entire fleet of ships, search for treasures, hunt down ships and plunder towns. As well as searching for your lost family and in turn search for a huge Inca treasure.
During a war between the Spanish and Holland, I ended up attacking more than half of the Spanish towns and installed a Dutch ruler.
So I have great memories of the old original versions of the game, but again, don't know if it have aged well at all (I never tried the Gold versions as I strongly disliked the graphics style)

ID: gpymp62

The most noticeable thing is the graphics being a little dated but the gameplay is still pretty fun. I’d say it’s worth $2.50 for sure.

ID: gpz1zi2

I think people are underselling it - it's still considered the gold standard for pirate games, and it hasn't been matched to this day. Assassin's Creed Black Flag is the only game that has approached it in terms of quality naval pirate combat.

ID: gpz9atu

It's solid fun. Way better than any pirate game released since.

ID: gpz7jh5

Great but doesn't work right in modern screens cause it's designed for 1600x1200 and the resolution patches don't really fix it

ID: gpz8py9

It's one of the great classics of computer gaming. I somehow still have my Commodore 64 version with the cool map. The Commodore itself is long gone though.

I played the remake some years ago and it's a great update fairly true to the original.

Yes it's a good, fun little casual game.

BTW, what book are you referring to?

ID: gq06p8z

It's fantastic and one of my favourite games. There are also some visual overhauls on Nexusmods if it looks too dated for you

ID: gq0m69e

My only complain is that by how light the game is I’d prefer to play it on a mobile console like PSP. On the pc seems kinda out of his waters but still a good game

6 : Anonymous2021/03/06 15:06 ID: gpyo8ct

Xcom 2 + war of the chosen is amazing, I highly recommend it for any strategy gamers.

ID: gpzkhdg

Game is ridiculously difficult but so amazing once you get past the 40-hour learning curve.

ID: gpzp4yi

Bought it in a past sale and I can't get into 'cause all the time missions. Maybe I need to give it a new chance

ID: gq1g7tm

I seriously recommend the soldier class mods on the workshop like necromancer, akimbo, samurai, and Jedi. It was like playing with a new expansion.

8 : Anonymous2021/03/06 14:38 ID: gpyid0n

Might grab fallout 4. Been thinking about that game a lot lately

ID: gpytnlc

Never been able to finish it. Every time I play it it just feels like brown Skyrim with guns. And Skyrim is still the best Skyrim..

ID: gpzx9p6

I'd recommend it, but just don't go into thinking it's going to be a "classic" Fallout game. It's more of a shooter than a true RPG, but it does have RPG elements. Great mod support, halfway decent story (can get dumb at parts), and the exploration is better than what you'd find in Skyrim (IMO), meaning that not every dungeon is a copy+paste. There's actually a lot more variety when you're exploring random areas and deciding to clear map markers.

For the price, it's worth the amount of time you'll get out of it. I bought it at full price at launch and I still do a playthrough occasionally.

ID: gq025k8

Go install a bunch of mods, make the game so much fun, there is a ton of missions and dlc to download

ID: gq102jt

As someone who loved the previous fallout games I would say it's okay-ish as a standalone post apocalyptic rpg but kind of bland and forgettable. Narratively it's pretty bad. Mechanically it's decent if shallow. Very light on RP and the dialogue choices are often inconsequential or what's said doesn't make any sense given the text version you selected, a lot of inconsistency there. It's biggest strength I'd say is atmosphere.

It could be fun for a weekend but knowing what I know now I wouldn't spend more than $15 on it and even then only if I was really jonesing specifically for new fallout content.

ID: gq1ifcq

This is a great game for anyone wanting a post apocalyptic open world that tells a story more than the main story itself, is interested in crafting or settlement mechanics, and is somewhat forgiving of the occasional bugs.

Wavering on any of those 3 or expecting FNV or FO3 may not merit buying this game on sale.

ID: gpzw0ca

So worth it with the sheer amount of mods out there for it. It really just is a sandbox you can do whatever you want with. Easy $10

ID: gpylkrq

I went back to it during 2020, really solid game.

ID: gpymg08

I got it few weeks ago. Story and graphics are meh, but I'm spending awful lot of time collecting junk from random locations and using it to upgrade my settlements. Also, it's still buggy even with unofficial patch.

ID: gpzwsqs

I just put over 100hours in to it. Best way to play it is not hammer the main quest. Just explore and do things and you find them. Honestly for how cheap it is... you are bound to get your moneys worth even if you only play a few hours

Splinter Cell Collection – $18 on Ubisoft Store

This one baffles me. The collection has Splinter Cell, Chaos Theory, Conviction, Double Agent, and Blacklist but it doesn't have the brilliant Pandora Tomorrow. Why would it omit that one?

Styx: Master of Shadows – $2.00 on Steam

You know, you can't really go wrong for this price. I did give it a 5/10 on Steam because the controls are terrible, but I finished the game and it's definitely worth $2.

ID: gq1id6z

Because PT hasn't been available for digital download in like, forever. It has broken lighting on modern hardware, which can be patched via community mods, but I guess the developers don't want to incorporate it.

10 : Anonymous2021/03/06 16:11 ID: gpz317k

notice when games go for free on gamepass they get discounted on steam too.. interesting

11 : Anonymous2021/03/06 16:43 ID: gpzb1a9

Hades worth it?

ID: gpzgjiz

Worth it and more. Fantastic game!

ID: gpzjs3a

Easily GOTY, even for people who normally don't like roguelikes.

ID: gq07c36

Short version: absolutely.

Longer version: it's a rogue like. As others point out, the basic gameplay loop consists of starting a run, getting random powerups, get as far as you can until you die, start over. Use some resources you collected on your run to upgrade, hopefully giving you an edge on your next run.

It is not the most mechanically varied rogue like on the market (though there's plenty to learn and master here), but where it really shines is that it's got that story and polish Supergiant is known for. Every character is fully voice acted, and has what feels like hundreds of hours of dialog. There are relationships, character arcs, and slowly unfolding stories that make this world feel like a living (lol) place. Even once you "beat" it the first time, the story isn't done, giving you further reasons to dive back in time and time again.

I'm not a huge fan of rogue likes, so I avoided it for a long time, but once I picked it up I got sucked in hard for a few months, and have only just got the point where I feel like I've finally seen most everything in the game. If you liked any of their other games, you'll probably enjoy this one as well. There's a reason it was on top of so many GotY lists.

ID: gpzkzu9

Hades is fun and has nice ambiance but here it is in a nutshell: You start at the beginning and go as far as you can until you die. You respawn at the beginning, this time a little stronger. You do it again. You die. You restart. You die, you restart. Again and again and again.

The thing is, the game is still fun despite the restarting because the dialogue is funny, the powerups are interesting, and you get stronger and better and you go further each time.

Having said all that, I stopped playing after seven hours because I don't want to play the same content over and over and over and over again. But it was game of the year for 2020 so what do I know?

ID: gpzy2nz

Best roguelike ever made IMHO. Even if you don't like the genre (I don't) it's a must play.

ID: gq0b8xb

Yes. Great gameplay, awesome characters, beautiful art.

Meg is hot.

ID: gq13e61

Here's my take on it responding to a similar question elsewhere.

/comments/lyzhlb/weekend_pc_gaming_deals/gq12fco" class="reddit-press-link" target="_blank" rel="noopener">https://www.reddit.com//comments/lyzhlb/weekend_pc_gaming_deals/gq12fco

I love roguelikes/lites and have put probably 150 hours into it.

My wife, however, does not like roguelikes. In fact she's played one other before this and very much disliked it. She has also put about 150 hours in and has even got 100% achievements.

It's extremely worth it even when it's not on sale.

ID: gq40sfm

Just a heads up: If ultrawide is important to you, Hades has columns drawn in instead of the standard black bars, so it does not support ultrawide resolutions.

Hades is a game if you don't own you probably should.

Also, PSA deep rock galactic and dirt 5 are on game pass. If you have game pass save yourself some money and get them there.

14 : Anonymous2021/03/06 16:36 ID: gpz97k6

Has anybody played the legend of bumbo? As a fan of boi, I always wanted to try it but held off because the game had a lot of issues at launch. Saw the game got a huge content update yesterday and was wondering if the game is a lot better now.

ID: gpzhgkb

I think I've played more LoB than the average person, at least enough to form an opinion. I bought the game at launch because I am a fan of McMillen's games and game design, however I think that LoB had some grand ideas that were cut down and refined in production that left... kind of a bare bones game at launch. It is a simple sliding match 4 puzzle game with some puzzle-quest spells. I had fun experimenting with different characters and the roguelite nature of the game had a mildly fun hook, but it was just OK. I haven't played since the content dump, it might have shined up the game. For the price, I would get it today. If nothing else, to support puzzle-based roguelites as a genre.

Any other good puzzle games like LoB that are recommended?

Since no one is talking about it, I want to say please go install Wargame: Red Dragon. Fantastic niche strategy franchise and Red Dragon is the pinnacle of it. But multiplayer desperately needs players.

ID: gq1ld8r

The game looks pretty solid, actually. And free DLC is thrown in, to boot!

17 : Anonymous2021/03/06 17:55 ID: gpzncp9

Just got Hades and I can see why people love it so much

ID: gq19c93

I got it and played for 15 min and when I understood that I'm going to be starting from the beginning all the time I asked for a refund.

However since then I've learned that it's better with a controller and I've been thinking maybe I've been too harsh. I'm new to pc gaming so keyboard and mouse gaming is super fucking weird for me.

Considering buying it again, lol.

Dell latitude laptops are solid choices, built to a better spec then their flimsy plastic offerings.

Lenovo thinkpads... Some people love them, my work thinkpad has been solid, but the ones that break suck to fix or get fixed under warranty.

Never trust an HP. I've seen too many over too many years that failed due to insufficient cooling. It's not one model, it's not one part. I've seen one that got so hot it desoldered the power connector from the motherboard.

Picking up DISTRANT 2. Highly recommend trying out the first game, I rarely play 2D games but that was fantastic.

ID: gpzl911

As someone who got the first one from GOG as a giveaway a while back, it's a really good 2D psychological horror indie game. 🙂

Hey guys not sure if anyone saw but Speaking Simulator, which was kind of popular at one point is on sale. That and American Refugee, which emulates GTA 2 mechanics. Those are my picks lately.

Picked up teardown and I refunded it after an hour play. Was expecting more destruction in game, but campaign is basically a timed heist. Also the cars control are awful (which to complete the heist you kinda need to drive those around)

The destruction was very satisfying though
