I think they just had one where they revamped the combat.
I really urge everyone to buy King of Dragon Pass for $3 on GoG.
It's one of the best games of all time and an impressive showcase of procedural narration where you get immersed in incredibly well-written stories of betrayal, love, friendship I've yet to experience in another game... all that in a solid and uncomplicated management game.
It's all 2D static art with walls of text so it aged pretty well, the UI is a pleasure to use, and it's a masterpiece everyone interested in videogames should play in his life.
Looking at the GOG sale, is Strike suit zero worth the price, heard some mixed reviews on it?
It's clear the developers have a massive passion for space games and have played them all but this is a game torn in too many different directions - it's trying to be too many things to too many people.
It's not actually BAD at any other them - neither is it outstanding at any - the modding system does kinda appeal to me but...
I'm not a huge fan of Strike Suit Zero personally, I haven't played it much but my initial impression was SOL: Exodus which was just feckin' horrible. It was at that point I put it down and went back to X3: AP, the combat may suck but at least there's more to the game than the combat. Also: Escort missions, or so I've heard.
Signal Ops, worth a squeeze at $5? Maybe just a nervously gentle and consensual fondle? I remember being intrigued but heard a lot of sighing about it.
Ladies and Gentlemen, we need to talk about something.
A game which hides behind a well publicised exterior.
This game is Splinter Cell: Deniable Ops
Deniable Ops is a very good game, it has a cancerous growth like tutorial attached to it about a man who thinks his daughter was murdered by a shadowy conspiracy which will lead to him punching and shooting people. I don't recommend you bother with the tutorial. Had Deniable Ops been an indie game released without a Story chapter attached to it and the legacy of its previous iterations I'm sure it would be much loved darling of actiony stealth. It was not.
But in my fantasy world of reduced confirmation bias Deniable Ops is a stealth game with outstanding mobility, great gunplay and completely option coop and competitive modes. Sharp graphics, varied locations, reactive AI and no fat to cut, Its a bloody lean stealth-action experience. You can customise your game mode, equipment and level of challenge,it has a DLC which adds great levels and in my dreamworld it is available cheaply and readily to the masses.
There is a slight point of convergence with my alternate reality as Deniable Ops is currently £1.60(Apply coupon “GMG20-6WUSQ-LBC4U”) on Green Man Gaming (NON AFF) you can play the deniable ops mode without even looking at the story, i recommend you do, honestly its the superior experience. Its a great stealth game which feels and looks magnificent with a controller or a mouse and keyboard.
edit: added coupon.
I want my life back so we can play it.
I was blinded by temptation.
Added a coupon for 20% more off btw.
How's Dark Messiah's multiplayer? I've never tried it.
Yeah, I loved Deniable Ops, far more so than Conviction as it goes.

CK 2: The Old Gods 50% off $7.49
Too bad its only for US and Canada.
If somebody is eligible and willing to get it for me, I'll gladly pay you via paypal.
Edit: It says "Protection: steamworks" so its a steam key right?
Combat Mission: Touch on android is free today only on the amazon app store.
Not sure how good it is but for £0.00 it's worth a go.
Anno 1404: Gold is to be had on GMG as well for € 3.74 / £ 3.24; the voucher code GMG20-6WUSQ-LBC4U cuts off another 20 %. It's the pinnacle of the series, hands down, and it contains the expansion "Venice" (which introduced multiplayer into the game). Bear in mind that the download requires GMG's own "Capsule" client.
