Somebody sell me on Revenge of the Titans....buy now or wait for a cheaper price? I've got a ridiculous backlog.

One of the best tower defense games going

Let's say it's going to hit 75-80% in the next sale, that's only 1.25-2 dollar difference so if you play it now get it now if it's just going to be backlog then wait.

Anyone know of any good Torchlight mod sites? I know that there were a few listed when it was on sale during the daily deal but I've dug through this thread and haven't had any luck finding such links.

I bought Shogun 2 at Amazon last night after realizing I can activate it on Steam. Yay. The reason I did so was because of the B2G1, and Yakuza 4 being the deal of the day.

Not sure why I'm telling everyone, but if anyone else wants Shogun 2 for $29.99 and wants to use it as part of the B2G1, it's fair game. (Yakuza 4 is still deal of the day and still part of the B2G1 as well.)

Anyone sitting on the fence with the Cthulhu pack should just buy it!! :)

haven't played them yet, but reviews i looked at on rpgamer.com said ~4 hours for BoD and ~8 hours for cthulhu.


Thanks for the information. Looks like steam is getting more of my money.

Anybody know how long new releases (i.e. the Cthulhu pack) are usually on sale at the 10% off "new release" price?


Does it matter? It's like, 30 cents off.

It doesn't really matter, I was mostly just curious. And wanted the info for future new releases.

Wow, thanks for posting that! After adding it to my Non-Steam games list I edited the name with a hyphen before the name so that it appeared at the top of the list. Underscore just pushes it down to the bottom.

1 week(so until july 20th). check out a game's store page and click on "read related news" on the side of the page in game details section. It'll usually tell you how long a sale lasts.

Alright, I can't seem to find a FarCry 2 topic in the gaming section (and it would probably be a few years untouched by this point), so I hope no one minds if I ask here since this is the Steam version.

I'm playing FC2 and just after you beat the tutorial missions, you're told to head to Mike's Bar. I go there, but when I go inside, the people that I seem to remember having to meet when I first played years ago on the 360 aren't there. There's just a few floating books where the table and people should be. I can't progress forward until I talk to them, and quitting/reloading doesn't help. I ran into this on the 360 version too when I last tried to replay a few months ago, and its driving me mad. I can't even find anything on this glitch online. Does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!

I played Dungeons of Dredmor. It has about as much polish as you'd expect. Good music. I got pretty far once I rolled a fighter-heavy class. Every single early tier magic spell is damn near useless or just a way to do a bit of damage at range to use that otherwise worthless blue number.

90% of the swag in the dungeons is crafting fodder, and since I did not major in crafting, I did not have the skills to do much of anything with the crafting, even if I grinded at the tier 0 crafting recipes so that just left an entire dungeon full of vendor fodder. This isn't Nethack or the like where you're picking up keys and towels and pickaxes and cream pies, loads of useful side crap. It's tiresome, to say the least.

Regening HP and mana requires food and booze respectively, and any consumed just adds X turns of 1/turn regen.

I cleared the first level after about two to three hours of play time (Huge levels) and I am just dulled by the experience. Leveled about 4 times and still felt like I was weak sauce even with better loot. Dungeon Level 2 versions of the same enemies were reaming me. I've not been one for roguelikes once my obsession with Nethack waned into boredom and this does nothing to rekindle the flames. If the music weren't a hoot and the descriptions kinda smile-worthy, I would rage and consider this a waste of $5, especially against the superior, free roguelikes out there. But I think it's alright.

Verdict: Eh.

And don't roll a caster.

Heh, we're both gamers. Until we got married, I had never had a gaming computer. He just built me one earlier this year, so I'm new to PC gaming.

I had this issue, too. You first have to head to the building across from Mike's Bar (there are 3-4 buildings in that location) to check out the gun shop. If you pull up your map (hit 5) and zoom in, you will see which building it is.

Thanks for the mini review. I was asking people on my friend's list about this game after watching the WTF. I have so many roguelikes on the iphone already, think I will hold out till its $2.50 during the winter sale.
