    Returns left me absolutely cold after maybe an hour. Dragonfall's world and characters drew me in right away, but I stopped playing (after about 20 hours, mind, so it's not like it's bad) when I...

    O Talkdown, guide my hand, lest it clicketh "Add To Cart" on any of these foul tempters:

    Sorcery!
    Hyper Light Drifter
    Hand of Fate
    Telepath Tactics


    Fair nuff then. I (almost) wish I'd...

    A tiny flying pig also becomes a protagonist for no reason.

    I seem to recall one of the supporting characters being a pretty clear gay stereotype.

    And all strategy goes out the door once you...

    Started playing it for the first time the other day. On the one hand, if you play it like a strategy game, it punishes you so hard for not seeing the future and preparing your fleet for the specific...

    Runestone Keeper's a surprisingly solid game for an IG bundle: well-designed dungeon crawler that's clearly inspired by Desktop Dungeons, but intended for the odd sort who doesn't...

    I adore Dishonoured, but I think its optimum experience only opens up to certain kinds of play. People who carve a straight line to the target tend to have pretty short play-times (though the combat...

    Subscribed (for the first time) for Soma a few days ago, and cancelled today. Before I confirmed, the site told me that I wouldn't get October's bundle. So, I can confirm that first-time subscribers...

    So vinraith, you'd say you've enjoyed it? I don't care to share how many hours I've sunk in to the first Hegemony, but the sequel felt like a misstep to me and I've been reluctant to dive in to the...

    Very much seconded. I'll likely never replay it, but it's an experience I'm glad to have had.
  11. Obscure & inexpensive gems in the sixteen summer sale

    Why not a thread to recommend games we think most people have probably missed (or forgotten) but many people would probably like- especially when cheap as chips? A few of my tips to start:

    Either of the last two Divinity RPGs come to mind, in that you don't need to pick a standard archetype, or - at least in DII - even stick with one kind of build.

    It certainly scales better than Oblivion - at least for most builds.

    I've always found it hostile, though, to light armour builds that aren't centred on magic. Like Blackcompany, I usually want...

    I will part with the crowd a bit and suggest you try and take a break for awhile, just to see how that treats you. Maybe the "need" for a new rig is you trying to tell yourself that you just don't...

    Store page says there are two fire modes, with the ability to unlock homing daggers if you "survive long enough."

    Anyway, the price certainly looks right.

    Not that it matters much, but as the OP, I'd consider a mod removing the holiday reference from the title and making an Evergreen Talkdown to be a friendly amendment.

    Against All Games - The Talkdown Thread

    Do you feel it? Here come all the video games. Again. You don't need any of them, of course - but Gaben doesn't care. He's going to make you buy them, unless you're strong enough. And alone, you...

    Speaking of nice things, I kind of recall someone said them about Perimeter in a discussion of Creeper World 3. It's a weekly on Steam... any opinions?

    Em Short's been linked already, and this is near the top of that 50 Best list, but it still bears stating explicitly: you really should play Counterfeit Monkey.
