Well, I would still play River Raid if I had the chance. :D

GoG have Valentine's Day, where you can get may games for fraction of their prices. It's still a classic like Witcher 1-3, Pillars of Eternity, Grimrocks, Banished, Arcanum, Syberias... it will last for four days after Valentine's Day. :pisces:

It continues, now they take a mix from all wishlisted games..

From Wishlists, With Love Sale

What caught my attention was SHADOWRUN: DRAGONFALL - DIRECTOR'S CUT, DAY OF THE TENTACLE REMASTERED & UNDERTALE.

But what I'm saying, if you have the newsletter, you know already! :D

And on humblebundle.com is running StarWars bundle and Total War Warhammmer as monthly one. As I see it, they may once come even with Monty Pyton's Bundle (ATM there's also software bundle) :tongue: Or you may finish with Dear Esther, Oh, Deer! or For Honor from the Store.

I got The Turing Test game after a 50% sale last week. The game is ... when you have played Portal and The Talos Principle, the game looks poor. It's an easier version of the other two. For the price, it was ok, but I think it's one of those games you only play once and let it got forever. You have to handle devices here and there, much akin to open things up and connect stuff, which reminds a bit of Portal. Meanwhile, an AI is speaking with you, with a voice so alike Elohin's from The Talos Principle, but it's basically opposite to GLaDOS behavior: well, it's actually trying to preserve humanity in its own way.

I never get tied to Portal, guess, some games are missing me and I move them out of my mind. Was happy player of SS and SS2 and MoM, of course, years before the Portal. But when Portal arrived I was ..somewhere else.

Noone matter, the three which I mentioned are worthy candidates for being played.

Recently I read some user reviews about Ceville and they were a bit of mixed. That's like yuck. Ceville is a good game but now falling in the dust, at least a little. People change.

Get all Civilizations, from Civilization III. up to Civ VI.: Beyoned of Earth for 15+$ on humblebundle.com. You have eleven days for it!

Think you have better offer, beat me! :D

If you missed it, you really should grab some information about "Eternal War" stalemate. CIV save and different solutions how to get from it.

https://www.reddit.com/r/theeternalwar/
https://www.reddit.com/r/theeternalwar/ ... v_ii_game/

So, maybe that this is a bad example (Nuclear Wastelands) but it's a good example, what push you forward. And with you all other people, nations. :tongue:

28th Feburary - release date of "Torment: Tides of Numenera" continuation of legendary Planescape Torment.
https://torment.inxile-entertainment.com/

The difference should be that the figures remembers your choices, so giving a "wrong" choice give you a new storyline with no go back - in given game. Otherwise you are immortal and I guess that they took care of save/load issues. :D

:up: Just notice!

Thea: The Awakening is available with 50% discount on Steam. That is for 9,99€ or $ depending on your location. (Unfair, I know.)

The image is from Add-On, Coffee for Coding.

I found that concept to be interesting. If you appreaciate the main game and wish to express your support, you go and buy the Add-On. This is not so much about content, instead you throw some extra money to developers, like reward for a good work.

Comparing with Ubi this is totally opposite. And admirable approach! :D

BTW Other DLC packages are offered for free.

Quite nice, actually, and I'm sure people would pay for it if they acknowledged a good additional work.

As every weekend in these years, there are weekend actions.

On humblebundle the most interesting is acion for sci-fi e-books, look for it here.

From the Ubisoft side of things, there's Spring Action.

And remember if you are interesting on anything on Steam, especially action items, quick check humblebundle store if there isn't the same action for better price. Odds, that it could be true, are higher than you could think. But it's very much dependant on exact timing.

If you loved Descent, there's ongoing Early Access for DESCENT: UNDERGROUND.

The original Descent gave me the worst case of motion sickness. Just seeing the name Descent makes me nauseous. 8|

The original Descent was loved by many, me included! Played it back and forth and, yes, hell, these were times. No motion sickness on my side, just good reflexes. :D

Did you know that there's Witcher card game? There is GWENT: The Witcher Card Game, for PC and PS4. Perhaps some previous players of Might & Magic: Duel of Champions would be interested. Neither played this or that.

PS For witcher you have a possiblity do design your own card, do it here. :D

@Panda Tar

Yes, gameplay seems similar. Less spells more fights, they say.

Also "Free" remastered Starcraft I. was announced.

Humble Bundle Presents: INTERGALACTIC Bundle!

As usually offer is divided to three stages.

Classic $1+ with Space Hulk Ascension, Sins of Solar Empire: Trinity and GC II. Ultimate
The last I own and the second I often hear praised. Still, in my eyes GC I. for OS/2 was da best.

Beat the Average $7.12 with Planetary Anihilation & Rebel Galaxy
No idea, would call them a jokers, any opinions?

And Pay over Maximum Average $15 with GC III. & Offworld Trading Company
So as SCI-FI, the Offworld Trading Company should be the latest from Stardock. I have a little shivering about it but will resist. :D

And if you drop them your e-mail you can get GC I. for free. See the bottom for the offer.

Mostly Stardock Bundle. Very few people know, that Stardock made their name on "Galactic Civilization for OS/2" which was equally famous (for OS/2 fans) as "Civilization I." And it was the main (gaming) allurement to attract people to OS/2 Merlin ( ..apart from voice command, that all in September 1996). Although the system failed, despite being better than the one from Microsoft, Stardock made a fortune here. It's also interesting that he got onboard by never stating exactly to IBM, how many employees they have. That little fuzzy approach, together with a great game, yield "victory" for Brad. The game featured multitasking AI, see archived pages of this venerable game here.

Sure, that's like Chess, you could play it forever. Again, and again! :-D

I'm a hypocrite because I suggested that all life is sacred and should not be wasted without good reason.
