    Revenge of the Titans is a fun but tough tower defense game and you pretty much have to read the wiki to figure out the game mechanics.
    I had a good time with it.

    Looks like their site is melting under load. I've got RotT in a bundle and I don't like it (it's RotTen hard, pardon the pun :P).

    Thanks for the heads up

    Wargame: European Escalation is on sale through this weekend on Steam, at $24 USD (40% off).

    If you have any interest at all, I very highly recommend it.

    Today's patch added lots of fixes, balance changes, and goodies like key-bindings, new maps, a flare command, and an attack/defense mode.

    Gamersgate has Alan Wake on sale. 20.00 USD for the normal edition, 23 for the collector's. Game is Steamworks so needs to be registered over there.

    How is Alan Wake, I hear it's linear (which can be fine) and short (also fine) but how is it to play?

    I played it on the 360, so take of that what you will. I found the game play to be largely repetitive and with no real deviation in difficulty; you're introduced to increasingly difficult monsters as the game progresses, but you get increasingly powerful weapons too, along with copious amounts of ammo. There's minor exploration for 'secret' collectables, but it's so obvious where the path is that you'd have to make a conscious decision to not turn left to look for them when you reach that fork and the way you need to go is obviously right.

    That said, if you enjoy the scenario and are interested in it, there are certainly worse games to play. I wouldn't ever really say it was bad, just a bit bland really.
    Powered by Steam. And biscuits. I'm also a twit and dabble in creative writing.

    It's fun. It's overall not very scary. I liken it more to reading a Stephen King book more than being in the company of other horror games. Gameplay wise it is indeed linear and a bit short, but overall fun I'd say. Mechanics are simple and do get a bit repetitive at times, but they are easy to get ahold of (there's a reason the spinoff is a weird Horde mode game). Main draw for me was the atmosphere (more weird and campy than scary). Worth a look.

    Though I did play it on console toybox, so I can't say much of its' port, though I think the port got largely positive reactions.

    Interplay sale over at GOG. Always a good selection of awesome titles like Fallouts, Freespace, Sacrifice, etc.

    It's linear and repetitive with a nice atmosphere... I found the combat particularly repetitive and even frustrating at moments but I did not regret buying it. However I could not bring myself to play the DLCs after finishing the main story.

    All mount and blade keys activate the demo, so you'd not be locked to their drm.

    Everyone, especially you at the back there playing pocket solitaire, needs to go to GOG and drop $3 on Sacrifice. It's worth it so many times over, and here's a Cynical Brit to show you why http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y7jw6tord7Q

    +1 for sacrifice, I forget that so many people don't know about it.

    I bought the 1c pack on Gamersgate to own the recognisable [to me] games. King's Bounty, Men of War, UFO, Theatre of War, Death to Spies, Necrovision, Space Rangers, Star Wolves & Faces of War. I now own Pathologic twice on the same account. Was worth buying for these alone. The question is are there any hidden gems or other games worth playing in this pack that you know of? I'm checking footage on youtube of lesser known/overlooked games. Some appear to be the definition of bad. Very bad. AIM 2 looks like its worth a shot. Fantasy Wars? Off-Road Drive? Real Warfare? XIII century? Reign: Conflict of Nations? Half the fun is finding hidden-gems but thought it worth putting the question out there...

    p.s. Men of War: Vietnam didn't require registering on Steam. Just an input on launch of serial code....

    We're actually discussing that in a separate thread.

    We'll see what comes out of that.

    Steam will give you $25 to play Gothic. Seems fair, if they enforce that you play Forsaken Gods and Arcania.
