It sometimes takes a little while to appear. It also sometimes appears in the news feed first, such as today's daily deal: The Guild II -75%.

Tempted by the guild, though reading the forum for it, it appears to be a buggy game, still has me interested though lol. Seems all the games I have a somewhat interest in where if I had a coupon would have pushed me over the edge to buy, I don't have coupons for, go figure.

lol it looks like all the worst parts of Fable combined :) Not that there aren't those that enjoy them but it looks closer to the Sims than an RPG.

I got the first Guild game a while back on GOG. I'm someone who normally likes sim games but I just found it sort of tedious and wasn't really holding my interest. I don't have the second one but I can't imagine it's that much different.

I saw their desc calling it an RPG hybrid but I think that's really a stretch. It seems like any game in a medieval setting gets the RPG label slapped on it these days.

Metacritic scores are pretty mixed on The Guild 2 are pretty mixed. It sounds like for a game in this vein The Sims Medieval is similar but more fun. Of course it costs more as well. :-P

I also dislike the habit a lot of the European developers have of doing 'stand alone expansions'. It's confusing and seems to me it's just an excuse to do the same game with a few tweaks and charge more because it's a 'full game' instead of an expansion pack.

It's not labeled an 'RPG hybrid' because of the setting it's because you control a character that has stats/proficiencies that you can improve over the course of the game -- they impact your ability to trade, influence, craft stuff, etc.

I guess. I still think it's kind of a stretch. You could say the same thing for The Sims but I don't think anyone thinks it is an RPG or even RPG hybrid.

I would say at most it has 'RPG elements' but I know that's splitting hairs. :-P

Apparently Renaissance is the one to get since it's stand alone and includes stuff from the previous titles.
Get $2 after you spend $2 on Green Man Gaming by registering with my link. Thanks! :D

Generosity is great and all, but this thread is a few days old, and already we've got stuff here that should be in the Steam trading thread.

I have hard copies of The Guild 1 and 2 on my shelf, but only ever played a bit of them. All I can remember in the lengthy tutorials. I might double-dip to clear some shelf space.

Bought The Guild II Collection with a 50% off coupon in the end. Having read the Steam forums, there's an equal amount of love/hate for it, pretty much a Marmite title.

WTH is Marmite? Is this, since you ask:

For the record, I'm a "no" person on Marmite. You didn't ask, but if you did that'd be my answer :)

Back to The Guild II, I think I'll hold it in my inventory until I have a strong feeling about it. I want to like it, I'm just not sure if I will.

What do you think the chances are of a Leap Day sale for the midweek madness this week?

EDIT: oh and put me down as NO person in the great Marmite debate.

I doubt it. Too many coupons out there but Valve may surprise me.

As much chance as there is of Half Life 3 being released then. Though I keep wanting to think that there was a small Spring Sale last year, but I can't remember clearly enough.

Don't remember unfortunately. I know there was a Summer, Fall and Winter sale last year. Feels like there was a Spring sale, but it's probably my mind playing tricks on me. Regardless even if there was one, it wouldn't happen this year before the tickets expire.

I think there were catalog (publisher) weeks last year, which would explain this in my purchase history:

Feb 21, 2011
$74.99
Purchase
Square Holiday Pack (NA)



I was hoping for the same thing this year to take better advantage of the coupons.

I thought Deus Ex and its dlc were supposed to be on sale on Amazon until tomorrow. It's $24 and $15 for the dlc.
