    My 2 cents, having played and replayed every AC game, except AssFlag: I'd say that the mechanics get progressively better with each game (no real difference from Bro to Rev, I believe). The first two have good atmosphere, AC2 has the best setting in the series by a good margin IMO. The Ezio trilogy tends to be too morally black and white, while 1 and 3 are more grayish. Ezio is the most likable main character, Connor being the worst. I also like getting to see Ezio grow up in AC2. Rev is pretty much more of the same as in Bro, but I would argue it being worse.

    My list would probably go
    1. AC2
    2. AssBro
    3. AC3
    4. AC1
    5. AssRev

    However, the order depends on how you value each title's strengths and weaknesses. Also, AC1 and AC3 may switch places.

    Europa Universalis IV is currently $9.99 on the humble bundle store. What's nice is that the price is in dollars even though I'm European. Also don't starve is $4.99, so I guess I have no more excuses not to get it.

    Yuletide is upon us so bargains will begin to pile up in the coming days. Where to begin?

    1. People who bought Crusader Kings 2 on Gamersgate.com will finally receive Steam keys. This means it's now de facto a Steamworks game.

    2. Amazon started their sale. A ton of stuff there. Also, you can pre-order Metal Gear Revengeance(!) for $19.99 at 33% off.

    3. Tin Man sale at Desura. You, know the one with the digital choose-your-own-adventure type games. I wrote a somewhat lengthy post once as to why you should buy those but I can't find it anymore because the search engine in this forum is terrible. You can't go wrong with 0.99 a piece though. Well, except the one with the vampire boyfriends. Unless you're really into vampire boyfriends. Not gonna judge. Dork.

    4. Winter sale at https://www.humblebundle.com/store, today only. They matched Steam's daily sale discount on Shadow Warrior and have about 100 other titles on sale.

    That's definitely one of the great things about the Humble Bundle store. Some people seem to think the US dollar is still worth as much as the Euro, even though it most certainly isn't. In any case, the Humble Bundle store is now selling Euro Truck Simulator 2 for $6.24 which is about 4.56. Sounds like a good price to finally give it a try.

    Just a heads up to everyone tempted by the Shadow Warrior deal or any other sales (I know I want Shadow Warrior for 10 bucks...): Signs point to Valve doing another "fun" sale, so if you like free DLCs or trading cards or whatever it might be worthwhile to hold off and buy stuff for probably the same price in the Steam sale (assuming you don't get screwed for being european) as that will almost assuredly be related to it.

    Thats a good point, but the problem comes for us Europeans with the games being cheaper on humble. $10 is about €7.30 and Shadow Warrior is €8.74, those kind of saving add up. That said, if you trade your cards in on the market you might just have the cash in your steam wallet to make steam a cheaper place.

    Also, buying Shadow Warrior off the Humble Store lets you activate it on Steam anyway.

    Yes. Which is why I made sure to comment on the euro thing.

    I just mention this because Shadow Warrior in particular will almost assuredly be on sale for the same amount during the sale, and previous sales have had stuff like "free coal with purchase". As I mentioned, if the money is different it probably isn't smart to go for.

    These are pretty good. Far from the best gamebooks I've played but still worth playing if you like that sort of thing. Too hard if you're playing "properly" and not using any bookmarks though.

    I believe you can end up with a Vampire Girlfriend if you play your cards right.
    Irrelevant on further examination of the rest of the thread.

    Metal Gear already 33% off. I wonder how good the port will be.

    That's only for two days, though. After that it will be the usual 10% pre-order discount.

    Hey folks, the specific Steam Christmas sale thread is now up. General reminder that any comments regarding the sale are best placed in there as there is a greater discussion placed on the games too and as to not disrupt the regular discount-hunting work done in this 'ere thread. Thanks!

    Thanks for mentioning the change for Gamersgate Crusader Kings II owners, Anthile. I'm in that boat, and it's good to know I can pick up the DLC for cheap.

    Worth a shot by entering a US address. Since I am in NA I never had to try it.

    Use coupon GFDDEC20 to get the game for $15.99 at Gamefly (unfortunately US only). So if you’re not in the US, you’re stuck with Steam’s price (15.40 in UK, €18.75 in EU and $19.99 in AU) which is still pretty darn good.

    It's worth noting, with a protracted sigh, that the Gamersgate version will no longer be updated, so in order to play new DLC or receive new patches Gamersgate CK2 owners will now be forced to use Steam. Being as I originally preordered the game at full price out of affection for the company and admiration for them offering a non-Steam version, you might say I'm a bit disappointed in them.

    Yeah. This same here. Even if I do understand the reasoning , and the game is truly great , it all does feel rather ... sad.
    Sort of end of era sad.
