Midweek Madness is the Red Faction franchise at 75% off

http://store.steampo...d.com/sub/15630

Is Armageddon backlog worthy?

Logged over 7 hours into it and beat the story. Overall it was decent, the game was fun just got a little too repetitive. I bit on the game for $5 from amazon and I feel that is the price point for the game. If you pass on it now it will most likely hit this price again and again later on.

Penny Arcade 3 review:
I just finished beating the game and the bonus boss. I played through the first game but got bored and never finished the second one; thankfully (for me), the third game plays NOTHING like the first two, and it's more similar to a classic SNES JRPG than anything else.

Well, that much most of you probably already knew. I was more impressed by how streamlined the entire game felt. Your party gains all its HP and items back after every battle, and all your "classes" (or jobs) gain experience as you play, even if you don't use them. The game heavily encourages experimentation and customization with its many classes, esp once each character can equip 3 classes at a time. The story isn't anything to write home about, though PA readers will probably get a kick by all the fan service and inside jokes. I felt the dialogue was a bit grating at times, but I still enjoyed the variety of the game's settings and parodies.

Overall, I quite enjoyed the 6 or so hours I played the game. I highly recommend it to people who grew up on 16bit JRPGs!

There's also a swedish bundle as the midweek madness.... nothing too great

Red Faction remains one of my favorite games all time but I have not played the newer ones.


Yeah the first one was a blast, throwing C4 on the enemies and watching them run around screaming until you detonate it, blasting holes through everything, and then 2 dropped geomod and it sucked, Guerilla brought back the distruction but only to the buildings and structures but not the ground, only played a bit of it but it just seemed odd compared to the freedom of the first.

Instructions for setting up the new built in install location changer. Nice that they added this feature, especially for people with SSDs.


Sheesh, Steams going all EZ-Mode on us. Back in the day you didn't even get a choice of what you got to play.

Steam: Shall we play a game?
Me: Love to. How about Global Thermonuclear War?
Steam: Wouldn't you prefer a nice game of Half-Life 2?
Me: Later. Right now lets play Global Thermonuclear War.
Steam: Fine.

And now I wish I would have gotten the Alpha IR bundle since Towns made it.

Did they make some guarantee it would be delivered via Steam if it did make it through the Greenlight process?

It's a fun little game. I managed to trade for that bundle ages ago.

Yeah, their greenlight page said you would get a steam key if you already owned it. Don't know what the cut off for it is though. Like if you could buy it now or what...

Greenlight links to the approved projects, since the site is a pain to navigate

Black Mesa (Source mod)
Cry of Fear (HL1 mod)
Dream
Heroes & Generals (f2p FPS MMO)
Kenshi
McPixel
No More Room in Hell (co-op zombie Source mod)
Project Zomboid
Routine
Towns

Pretty cool to see some mods in the mix even if they are pretty well-known already. Out of the whole group I think Routine looks pretty cool.

My notes indicate that of the Swedish Indie Bundle, only Dwarfs?! and Lucidity have not appeared in a mainstream indie bundle, and I think Puzzle Dimension was in another Steam Sales Event bundle (I can't find it on my Account Details page). So only 2/10 are "fresh". Bah humbug, or whatever that translates to in Svenska.

I don't think it'll be cheaper anytime soon. If you don't have it yet, now is the best time to buy it.


And I have $3.74 in credit. :cry: I still haven't actually given them any money for my "purchases" due to the bit of credit I pick up now and then.

Just a heads up that I grabbed Quantum Conundrum on GMG and the key for it isn't showing up in my keys page.

First time I've had a problem with GMG. Awaiting a response from a support ticket.

Lot's of people have reported the problem to them, I would just sit tight and wait, if you have not got it in a week, then send a ticket.

For the price, the wait is worth it.

I figured that was the case, but sent a ticket about it in anyways. Maybe it'll make them move faster.

Maybe it's worth to ask devs about putting the game on Greenlight?


Epic Games owns ChAIR so I'm pretty sure they could bypass the Greenlight route should they so desire. ;)

Thank you for the code. I'm still debating whether or not I'll pick Quantum Conundrum up, but the thought of obtaining the game for less than $4 sounds amazing.

Hm, sounds promising. I wonder what the minimum "pay what you want" number is going to be though. Sounds too good to be true.

Chester looks interesting though and you get it for free when you sign up.
