Steam Sale started today. FYI


#1167

The moment you open your e-Mails to see a mail stating that 25 items on your wishlist are on sale…
picard_rikerwtf


#1168

Yeah, I have 21 items. And the one item I wanted to be on sale, Parkitecht, is not on sale.


#1169

Heh, my e-mail said 25 items as well! :grin:

Looks like it’s time to get caught up on Europa Universalis IV and Crusader Kings II DLC, again. :thinking:

Two recent, and good, articles to help identify the impact of the available DLC on systems and regions that might affect me:


#1170

Dave teased over at BGG that he gets to spend his holidays playing the TTA expansion but can’t yet talk about it!

I think we need to come up with some hidden codes. Like blink twice if it is as amazing as we all hope…


#1171

So far, (blink) (blink)


#1172

Somebody go put a comment in my Combat Mission AAR so I can finish it up later on, since apparently Discourse won’t allow me to make more than 3 consecutive comments.

Also, you guys are missing out if you don’t click the gif links.

Mutant Year Zero is a delight so far.

X-COM minus the aliens, add a fallout or stalker-esque wasteland setting and starring a “buddy cop” duo of a mutant Duck and Boar (picking up more people along the way). The world is thick with atmosphere and the voice acting / story is top notch. The combat feels perfect, especially when you’re sneaking around enemies to get the best position before kicking off a sneak attack. So realtime sneaking around the map, turn based when you start to fight.


#1174

That looks awesome!


#1175

that looks great…

PC only?

That is lame…

:grinning:

edit: I guess it’s on PS? I mostly only play games like this on a desktop.


#1176

The trailer he linked says PS4.


#1177

yeah, I saw that after. I went to see it on Steam and it was Windows only there.


#1178

Metacritic has reviews for PC, PS4, and X-Box One. I didn’t see a physical product on Amazon, so I’m guessing it it digital-only.

Edit: I found it on my PS Store for $35 (US).


#1179

It’s an Unreal Engine game, think that might means Windows only outside consoles.


#1180

Looks like Binding of Issac was completely removed from the App Store, both for new buys and for those who purchased it. I can confirm that it no longer shows up in my purchased list.

This is super shady, and really burned a bunch of people, considering Nicalis stated they would be updating it as time went on and there were never any updates.

Current running theories are 2 fold - it’s gone forever, or Nicalis is going to reissue the app as a brand new purchase and force everyone who bought it to rebuy it. iOSGaming Subreddit Thread

Things like this are why I no longer consider app purchases a good use of money. Games that don’t work or disappear after a couple of years, when contrariwise games like Campaigns on the Danube or to a lesser extent Eagle Day to Bombing of the Reich and War in the Pacific get compatibility and balance patches years and years down the line, in CotD’s case over a decade after release.


#1182

Polytopia updated with a new tribe, and more robust MP supposedly.


#1183

Speaking of which, I have the urge to do some WH40K, purge and cleanse some xenos and heretics, while preparing for the Jan 24, 2019, scheduled release of Battlefleet Gothic: Armada 2 … do we know what happened to Battlefleet Gothic: Leviathan?

I’m guessing @Private_Prinny would know? Right now I’m considering picking up the Warhammer 40,000: Sanctus Reach - Complete Edition bundle on the Steam Winter Sale, but will likely play the original Warhammer Gothic: Armada to get in the mood for the sequel. :thinking:


#1184

I assumed it was a victim of the appocalypse.


#1185

Leviathan was just randomly pulled out of the blue. I know this because it was in my shortlist to download before a trip and was gone two days later when I actually tried to download it. I don’t remember my timeline all that well but I think it survived the appocalypse. Whether is was pulled before or after, though, it wasn’t because of the 32-bit purge.
