Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen is $12 on GMG (account required for VIP price).
I deleted these logs recently too. It seems to be caused by running the system for a very long time without rebooting, so the log-compressing fails because the files are too big when you finally...

Infested Planet just got a dynamic campaign DLC for $8.

In COH1, there's a separate screen to pick your commander and then spend points to unlock the abilities. In COH2, you only select the doctrine, and abilities are automatically available based on the...
From Battlerite's EA FAQ on Steam:
I really enjoy Neal Asher's Polity universe. Start with Gridlinked (the first Agent Cormac book). Asher's writing is fun, well paced, with good action, huge set-pieces, and fantastic monsters, but...

XCOM also lies to the player about the odds and cheats in their favor in various ways. XCOM2 examples.
Unreliable weapons are frustrating and unpopular, which makes odds-based combat difficult to...
Harder. It pains me to see them discarded. I would have at least kept the inserts and covers.
We had a box nostalgia thread a while back, for which I photographed my collection.
I find it a...

Maybe one of the Settlers or Anno games? They're more focused on resource chains and logistics, and games from both series are in the current GOG sale.
Stronghold also has freeplay modes where...
Yep. My first RimWorld colony was an engrossing train-wreck. The second was very successful but resource starved, and I tired of waiting for random events to scrape up more steel needed for...

Not really, but it's simple and I didn't have trouble with it. Mostly it requires placing the buildings sensibly, like everything else in Tropico, and keeping ahead on the socioeconomic side of...

I enjoyed T5's new take with its Eras and Research, but then I haven't played 4. Tropico 3 however, with its buggy markets, was maddening. The original remains my favorite (and has the best music),...

Sometimes, but not always. Hardware performance can't overcome buggy multi-threading, for example.
Going from max settings to lowest and even modding to disable shadows and shaders did nothing...

No, I don't think you need a hardware upgrade, though you could overclock your CPU.
Some games are just poorly engineered and have cruddy performance. There were several in the past year: Deus Ex...
I never played it and have no opinion, so I make no recommendation.
I happened to run across both this thread and Voidspire Tactics today. It's an exploration heavy SRPG, like a more free-form Rainbow Moon (but with custom characters and no separate combat maps).

Sticky: The current Slitherine bundle...
The current Slitherine bundle (at $7) includes Pandora: First Contact, and while it appears to be a routine Alpha Centauri clone with mediocre reviews, the Eclipse of Nashira DLC ($10 regular, $5 in...
I hate the silly conceit of an enemy that will happily march into your deathtrap.
Revenge of the Titans is another game that sidesteps this by having enemies that can flow around or attack what...
XCOM 2 retail box is $20 on Amazon.
I still haven't played Enemy Within, and 2 apparently has serious bugs and technical issues 7 months after launch, so I'm going to leave it on my wishlist for...
I really loved Pixeljunk Monsters. It's rather different from most TD, being designed for console + controller, but the way your character movement is part of the optimization game is rather...
@ZakG: none of the many many tweaks fixes the stuttering. It comes and goes with NMS patches.
2nd exp patch today, still some minor stutters but they aren't 1/3s, and no super long freezes this...
CoH 2 with the add-ons is well worth $15. The buyable commanders system is regrettable, but not a deal breaker for me. You'll unlock some just by playing. I only have 9 hours, but more commander...
Today's experimental patch greatly reduces the amount of stuttering for me, but it also froze for long (30s+) periods with the audio still playing when flying around. At this point I'm virtually...
Strangely, I couldn't get through the Uplay site login (spinning logo forever) until I set Firefox to accept third party cookies.
