Interesting, may have to try Breakdown as the main game isn't quite sandboxy enough for me. Way too many events happening too close together.

Heh, no. Never had a Super Nintendo.

omg
Never had one either.  Had to play it at my cousins house, or later eventually burn through its games via roms on my PC.  I grew up poor, which meant me and my sister worked chores and extra shit around the neighboorhood for about 9 months straight, and combined our cash together so we could get a new console system.  And we chose......Sega.   awesome, for real

Picked up Arkham Origins, because I love me some Arkham.  Heard this particular one was lackluster compared to the previous ones but it's $5 so whatevs.

Spec Ops: The Line is a must play IMO.

In my limited experience with the series, they're pretty generic JRPGs.   You'd be better off just downloading a SNES emulator and playing some titles you've missed.

I liked all of the Legend of Heroes games on the PSP, but have been waiting for this to go on sale to buy it. It's still $14 for me; is yours cheaper because Europe or did I miss a flash sale?


Edit: Is the DLC worth buying for Orcs Must Die 2?

I just got off work and I'm about to go to bed, so bear with me if I'm a bit rambly.

I grabbed Trails in the Sky when it was on sale on GOG a few weeks back, I think for a bit less than this. It's not a bad game at all, but I haven't gotten too far into it yet. Kind of generic, but pretty fun. What limited voice-acting there is is pretty cringe-worthy (even with some moderately well-known VAs doing it), but the translation is pretty amusing.

It's got a kind of Materia-like system for learning spells and boosting stats in addition to your normal equipment, and combat is a fairly straightforward turn-based affair with SRPG-style grid movement.

Just bear in mind that it is a literally ten-year-old PC game, so don't expect great graphics, and it does what I always find to be an annoying shortcut where a character's sprite fades out and reappears elsewhere to simulate them doing an action (usually sitting down) that the devs didn't want to make an animation for.

Controls fine with a mouse, but I use my 360 pad anyway.

Worth it at full price, imo.  Much deeper than it looks.  Also, it looks like it comes with a new major expansion update that I have not yet played.

Picked up a 4 pack of theHunter: Primal. It is really raw and unfinished still, but it could very well turn into something pretty damned fun. Seeing a T Rex wander by, shaking the ground as it goes, while you cower with a bow and arrow? Kinda scary. Devs are off for the holidays, but hopefully some updates in 2015 make this the game it could be. If you have a theHunter account already you get goodies for buying Primal too.

Thanks for all the comments on Trails in the Sky. I got Vanishing of Ethan Carter instead.


EDIT: I understand that these kind of games don't have to animate characters or manage complicated systems, but the graphics of this game could be the finest in existence at the moment for all I know. I've never seen anything this close to photorealism. I am blown away. Find a way to check it out if you have a chance and trust me when I say that no 1080p video on youtube is gonna do it any justice.

It's fun and works fine, but it's essentially just more content (maps etc.) for a game which already had a ton of content IMO.  I grabbed it, but my co-op partner bailed on me because he just felt like he'd played enough of the game at that point.  If you've beaten the game and still want more, it definitely scratches that itch.

The base game is really great, I thought, for some simple fun.  It's got a good visceral feel to the gameplay, blasting stuff feels great, knocking orcs in to pits is always hilarious.  There's a good balance between thinking and action, it's not a totally cerebral math game but it's also not something you can just blast through without thinking and expect to win.  Co-op is a great addition, too, if you can find a partner.

Edit: Misread, my bad.  Might want to just start with the base game and see how far it takes you.  There's a lot of content there to get through before you run out.

HOMM VI Bundle is on sale. Worthwhile? I already have Ubi's AIDS on my machine, so I'm not fussed about that.

Also, How to Survive Storm Warning Edition is on sale for $1.99. Thoughts on this?

I tried it for a bit and it's pretty janky. Main complaints at the moment are it's very hard to spot items you can pick up and the checkpoints are few and far between and non-obvious (it doesn't tell you if it's saved your state). It's also designed for a controller as you would expect from a console port.

English only. There's not much of it that I've heard, just little combat barks. It can be muted.

Also the not-materia you slot into your characters are called "orbments", which I constantly read as "orbmeats", and imagine it as s a really funny euphemism for tits.

Everything 505 Games touches is total jank. It's just whether or not it's so janky it's awesome. I don't think they've made that particular crossover since the PS2 era.

Anyone tried the Steam versions of Final Fantasy 3 or 4?  I'm thinking of grabbing one of them, but not sure which, if either.  Played FF4 when I was a kid, but never had any experience with 3 yet, and the crappy DS graphics aren't really selling me on them.

I have the Steam version of FF3 and I have the DS verson of FF4 (which is the same version as on Steam). They're both ports of ports, from DS to Android to PC.

FF3 is easily the hardest entry in the franchise, and can be quite frustrating, since it adheres to the old-school D&D-like spell charge system, but it started the job system, so that's a thing.

FF4 DS is pretty great, and is pretty tough too, but also includes some changes in the form of Augments you can unlock from doing certain things, and some augments can be easily missed if you don't follow a guide.

I got Space Run during one of the daily sales and it's been pretty good so far.  It's kind of a tower defence/strategy type game that can be pretty difficult, esp. if you don't upgrade your skills.

Saints Row 4 is crazy and annoying in places, but it's worth $5 for the fun parts. Just don't go into it thinking you have to do 100% because it will drive you up a wall on some of the more awful mini-games ever created.
