    How is $12.50 for an in-depth strategy game not competitively priced? I agree with him about the devaluation of indie games if that kind of attitude is common. It might be more expensive than some other games, but compared to the prices of games in general and specifically the prices of similar games, it's a great deal. And a great game.

    I'd like to know what people think of Six Gun Saga. I'll try the demo of course, but other opinions help.

    No, I am just unable to read at this time of night (read it as 'but is $50 more').

    I'm semi-intrigued as well, although iirc isn't that one SP only?

    I'm really interested in Solinium Infernum after reading the RPS diaries of their game, but I'm not sure how much multi I'll play...

    I'm guessing it's play-by-correspondence style? So it doesn't matter if everyone isn't online at the same time?

    How are the other 2 games? I've not heard much of them.

    There's plenty of SI players here. Any games starting usually gather 6 players soon enough.

    Armageddon Empires is a straight war game (compared to SI), single player only. You build a deck of cards that are used to construct bases and deploy units in game, and try to wipe out the enemy players. There's 4 distinct factions, a large variety of units with different abilities, and lots of independent forces and random event type things scattered around the map. The AI is fairly strong but not without its flaws. I like it, try the demo.

    I think Six Gun Saga is a lot of fun, for what that's worth. It's quick to play, clever, executes its theme well, and has some real depth. The AI is at least decent (I'm not good enough at the game to say anything beyond that). The only thing I'd criticize is that I wish combat executed the "poker" idea in a more substantial way. As it is, you don't really play poker, it's just a die roll with cards.

    I think I'm mostly interested in SI and AE, so I'm downloading the demos now. As for SI, as long as there are a couple of games I can join with RPS people I think it'll be worth the $12.50 it'll cost me.

    Also, if anyone has their eye on a GMG title, I saw this at Kotak(a)u: Green Man Gaming 10% off code – GMG10-PERCE-NTOFF
    Personally I'm hoping GMG gets Saints Row the Third for preorder and a decent coupon...

    Thank you, kind sir. Looks like that will be a big help. I suppose SI plays quite similarly, so it should help with that too.

    Indie games? I don't discriminate, $12.50 (or ~8 I guess) is an amount I rarely need to spend on an individual game (or even bundles), now I am a year behind (if that) but I get to consume obscene swathes of games without bankruptcy.

    I'm backlogged to high heaven and I'm cynical enough to ignore the hype machine by default, I'm a blight on gaming am-I-not?

    Does anyone know if the version of VtMB on Impulse is compatibible with the unofficial patch? Almost 4 (four) of my shiny euro depend on this answer.

    Some interesting stuff in that Halloween sale.

    Amnesia for 3 euro is an insanely good bargain.

    Sorry, I didn't mean to attack you personally, more express general exasperation. Maybe in a year or two Vic will try a bargain bin sale to see how it works out, SI will probably still have active players then. In the meantime, it's an excellent price for anyone interested in devious multiplayer strategy.

    I don't see how anyone can justify not getting Breath of Death VII+Cthulhu Saves the World at that price. The gameplay itself is a little bland, but the writing is excellent and worth the dollar alone.

    If you liked Amnesia, Penumbra is along the same lines and at $5 for the game and both expansions is a steal.

    Saint's Row: The Third is currently $40 to preorder on Amazon for a Steam key (it's a steamworks game, and also an in-house port).

    What's the word on Ghostbusters: The Video Game? Pretty cheap for $2.50. Also the Dead Space pack seems quite interesting, but the games might be too scary too play. Wonder if new items will appear in the sale, any ideas? Was hopping for Costume Quest

    I'm awful with scary games, but I still played, finished and enjoyed the first Dead Space (haven't tried the 2nd, though I've heard good things). It's definitely scariest at the beginning, but you start to feel more confident as you get armour and weapon upgrades.

    What's the general consensus on Left 4 Dead 1 vs 2? And any Aussies know if 2 is still censored? Played the censored demo on 360 and the graphics looked awful, but I don't know how much of that was the console and how much was the lack of gorey detail making it look bland.
