edit: I wasn't trying to be unappreciative, Syntax... just took me a few minutes to respond (I have a baby and a bottle in one hand and I'm typing slowly with the other).

My apologies then -- and I have a two year old running underfoot so I feel your pain. Too used to the norm (codes yanked by lurkers, never to respond) I guess.

Binary Domain for $8 would be 80% off. I doubt it'll go lower during the Winter Sale unless it's base price is lowered; discounts >75% are very rare for newer games.

Does that add a second maximized slot to your void or does it just maximize the slot you already have?

Any recommendation for TW Battles: Shogun?
I like the TW games, but only for the strategy parts. I usually auto-resolve the RTS battles. Is this little port RTS-lite enough I'd prolly enjoy it?

Only other game I have any interest in that I don't own there is Stronghold 3 but I heard some not so good stuff about it, enough to keep my away from it :(

Wonder if any other CAG's are interested in another game, maybe we can go halfies?

It just worked for me. Took me as far as the pay screen but I wasn't actually planning on buying them so I didn't complete the transaction.

I'm not sure I understand your question? I am now able to have two games from void at one time on my account whereas before I only was able to have one. I do think they have to be from the same publisher but I think most VOID games come from the same publishers.

Something must be wrong with my computer then, I'll try it in chrome, thanks for checking.

Arcen have turned that "Update A Valley Without Wind's hated art style" thing into a full fledged new game

http://christophermp...ull-sequel.html

Anyone that's bought the first game will get the new game for free. Most everything about it is being changed, though the big differences are the art and a new city management metagame. Tons of other changes detailed in the link.

They're actually turning that ratty, ugly, Terraria wannabe (As if anyone in their right minds WANTS to be Terraria.) almost into something that sounds like I'd want to play. If they release a demo, I might actually dig into it. It's the least they could do.

That sounds pretty cool of them. Although it feels weird reading about it when you haven't even cracked open the first game.



Unrelatedly, I wanted to mention another neat thing I noticed about Borderlands 2. I'm less than halfway to the level cap (storywise, I have no clue) but there have already been 3 casual mentions of same-sex relationships that are neither plot-crucial, nor puerile or salacious or toilet-humor-y as would actually be par for the course for this franchise. Come to think of it, there was a little of that in one of the BL1 DLCs but it was more juvenile-ly homophobic/erotic. I know it might not play well with the "not gay" crowd, but cue the how-far-we've-come music please.

Hmmm...

The controls are also streamlined. That whole mouse+keyboard thing was really a bad idea, as some players pointed out to us. That sort of freedom of aiming really kills the classic Metroidvania style of a game like this, and makes it so that keyboard-only players and gamepad-only players are at a huge disadvantage. So we're moving down to two streamline control schemes that are equivalent with one another: keyboard-based and gamepad-based. And yes, the tab-targeting is gone since that basically acts like a cheat at this point without free-aiming of the mouse.

Total War Battles Shogun $3.99 50% off


Total War Battles Shogun is a tablet game. I would not that it is normally $4.99 on Google Play

If you don't care about Steam you can get Tiny and Bigs and two other games for $2.99 here:

Thank you! The indie fort thing disappeared off the radar.

I hear it's a pretty boring game.


You start as a level one human without special powers/training/connections and only one life. It's quite a grind to "level up." "Achievements" are often very hard and somewhat dependent on luck. Gameplay is very unbalanced and quite boring at times. On the whole it feels like the everything is rigged against you, for no particular reason. The loot-reward system is insufficient for such grindy gameplay. "The only winning move is not to play."*

Until we see user controlled full nudity lesbian sex scenes in mainstream games we have made no progress.

I noticed this as well! It's very refreshing and I think it's another great example of the character of Gearbox Software.

Any guesses on this one? From the youtube comments, it sounds like this might be the best one since 2. Most people are saying King's Bounty: The Legend, Stranger's Wrath HD, X-Blades, Neo Scavengers. Possibly even Tropico 3 and Ship Simulator. What are your thoughts, CAGs?

The key word is mainstream. Underground lesbian empowerment games won't make the type of impact we need.

Tropico 3 and not Ship Simulator is the guess. Those ships in the second clip are from Tropico 3 I think.
