    What Helio said, plus I honestly think the moment-to-moment game play in Drox "feels" better than in their fantasy ARPG's.

    Yes, at low levels there doesn't seem to be much variety in equipment or play style. Things open up substantially later on, but part of the reason the game seems a bit flat for new players is that...

    Every diplo victory I've had has basically happened despite me, rather than because of me. Two of the more peaceful races (one of them is usually the Dryad) will start gravitating toward one another...

    That whole post is a great pile of advice, but this caught my eye. Seriously? I've never won economically, despite having won several times by all the other criteria. Military victory is definitely...

    The short answer is "more of everything," which for a procedurally genererated game is actually a huge deal. Lots of new races, new race variants, loads of new events, ship systems, critters, some...

    Haven't had a lot of time to game lately, but have squeezed in a little Grim Dawn with a friend and I must say, it's getting steadily better as it progresses and opens up. The Devotions system is a...

    Nice catch, that's a particularly well-hidden sale. Sadly, Humble doesn't seem to have the (excellent) expansion pack Invasion of the Ancients, but you can always pick that up later if you find you...

    First thing I did on my evil playthrough, which ended up being my absolute favorite pass through those games.

    Yup, I read it and I mostly agree with it. My major point of dissent, beyond some incidentals, is that I found both the plants and the ball mode considerably more useful than john did - in fact some...

    He's not really all that wrong, though. It's more Grow Home, which is great, but it's pretty slight from a content standpoint and there isn't much new about it. The challenges are kind of awful,...

    Slow thinky puzzles in a bundle mostly comprised of twitchy stuff (TBG excepted, of course).

    Hexcells is, as has been said countless times around here, absolutely wonderful. It seems an odd fit with the rest of that bundle, though.

    That part of Arkham Asylum was so good. It's a shame (for me, anyway) about the boss battles.

    Yeah, I've really enjoyed Grow Up as well, but it's surprisingly brief for its size and startlingly easy to short circuit past some of the content by going after the upgrades forcefully. Still, a...

    Yup, I think I'm just going to go ahead and get it. I had a ton of fun with the first, it's the kind of relaxing light exploration game that's exactly what I need right now.

    Thanks for the heads-up, Helio. The first was lovely, I'll grab this as soon as I've got a few minutes to give it.

    The class/skill system is very similar to Titan Quest and its expansion, and is one of the strongest aspects of that series. I'm a little baffled by Grim Dawn's aesthetic, actually, since the concept...

    Haven't gotten to it but expect you may be right. Then again, being unimpressed by TSP won't make me more like to pick up TBG so it's really something of a catch-22.

    I've been playing some Grim Dawn as well and while I'd certainly place it above Path of Exile (which is a pretty low bar IMO) it definitely feels like it's missing some of the magic that Titan Quest...

    Is it? All I've ever read about TBG can be summarized as: "a huge let down after the Stanley Parable." Nothing else in the bundle is appealing, I'm seriously thinking about giving the whole thing a...

    I've been following it with interest for some time, but only just picked it up and haven't found enough time for it to be able to really offer a useful opinion, unfortunately.

    3's been spectacularly well supported, and they appear to be planning some DLC for it as well. It's also cool simply because it's a game about a period in history (Italy before Rome) that never gets...
