    For that price it's probably not much of a loss to pick them all up, but are there any fan favourites from that bunch that come particularly recommended?

    Might also be worth verifying they work on modern systems.

    The entire game is brown, but the levels open way up after the first two (which I didn't think were particularly horrible, even.) I enjoyed it for what it was: an excellent way to kill off a bottle of whiskey and a rainy day.

    All of Commandos games are excellent, with 2 probably being the most well regarded, 3 being the worst.

    A word of warning, they're hellishly hard.

    As a personal favourite, I'd go with the first one, Beyond Enemy Lines, but I'm biased as it was one of the first PC games I ever bought.

    Definitely a series from my childhood. I sucked at them, though.

    The first two games don't.

    Fixes are here; it was made by a fan on the Steam forums. It was on Megaupload, people have hosted it elsewhere since then.

    I guess the link was already posted! Well, I can still add to it and say you gotta go right to the last page to get the fixes since Megaupload is no more.

    Yeah, it gets really good after about an hour in. The problem with the modern shooter joke is that it isn't really a very good joke so you just end up wasting time until it gets all Serious Sam. And it does.

    I loved going back to complete don't give a monkeys maps where you can clearly see where the arena begins and ends. And the giant sandworm that will eat you if you go outside it.

    The last level is pretty terrible though. Probably hilarious to write and well into the realms of "how far is too far? this far!" but I just couldn't be arsed gritting my teeth through the gauntlet it lays down. But a pair of minor gripes for hours of solid, smiley shooty bang bang that I truly enjoyed loads.

    This is true - especially the bit about 'credit' card, because GetGames appear to be one of those companies who are blocked by many of the main banks for debit card transactions (see also pcworlddownloads.co.uk and a few other sites).

    Worse still is they'll take your card details, send you a confirmation email but nothing else. No warning there's been a problem, nothing (definately not a game).

    I've bought 3 things from GGG, 2 of those resulted in having to talk to their support people to actually find out what the hell was going on - won't bother again...

    I know it's been heavily discounted in the past, but Just Cause 2 is up for £2.50 on Gamersgate, and the DLC is discounted to a similar level (22p each for the smaller packs, 37p for the bigger ones)

    Don't go for the Just Cause 2 complete pack (which includes the game and all DLC) as it's slightly cheaper to add everything individually. A fine way to use up some blue coins regardless.

    Do note that the game must be registered on Steam, which is either a plus or a minus depending on your proclivities.

    Contemplating getting Dear Esther, which is half off on Steam. Reading through the corresponding Steam forum is hilarious. For people here who've played it, what did you think? I'm well aware of the length and type of gameplay, and they don't necessarily deter me if the game can successfully do what it was trying to do (which is the story, I suppose).

    That can be said about almost any game, but I'm curious now.

    EDIT: Read the posts quoted below. Yep, steam forums being steam forums.

    Tbh I found Dear Esther fairly tedious. In terms of source mods telling a story, Stanley Parable did it better. I'm possibly missing something but I really couldn't find a single useful thing about it.

    I'll put it this way: I enjoyed the path, but not so sure I enjoyed Dear Esther, and kind of regret purchasing it.
    The cave looks gorgeous though, they've taken the Source engine to it's extreme in that section of the game.

    The path annoyed me, skipping sale in 3...2...

    Avernum 6 still features the best boss-battles and set-pieces not only of any of the Spiderweb's series, but of nearly any RPG I can think of. If you liked Avadon, you owe it to yourself to play the far superiour Avernum 6. Especially as it doesn't cost anything.

    It's no tech demo because it was made within an already existing engine.
