Why are we getting so many repeats? Whatever happened to those five or so games the community voted on?

Are these both recent groupees repeats?

 

Oh man, thanks for pointing out that this is a repeat. I was thinking about picking it up, and it turns out that I already own it from the retro groupee. This is like the third time over the last few offers that I've almost bought something that I already own.

 

I think in the future, I should set as my default position an expectation that all of the IGS games are gonna be repeats. Only after being proven wrong on that will I consider buying the game.

 

 

Don't worry.  Once I actually bought a game I already owned from IGS, luckily they have a lenient refund policy. lol

IGS are being dumb. I don't know why they skipped Three Dead Zed yet featured Paranautical Activity and 8-bit Commando. I probably wouldn't be able to give away those games to any of my friends, because they all have it. This is nothing new though, IGS has always loved repeats.

They're really shooting themselves in the foot, at this point I'm thinking of just skipping all IGS deals since 99% of the non-repeat games they feature will be bundled anyway.

The way I use IGS is to pick up games from bundles that I didn't buy (not that there's many of those...) because I only wanted one or two games from them and couldn't justify getting the whole bundle. So it works out sometimes when that one game shows up on IGS, but yeah, it's mostly stuff that I already own too.

You considerate bastard, you.

 

Not all that interested in this one, myself. I'm not exactly the world's biggest adventure game fan. But it appears to be by the same people behind the Cognition series. So if you like those games, maybe this might be for you.

I think it looks a little interesting, but indie adventure games get bundled probably more often than anything else. Given I still have about a dozen from the telltale weekly, I'm gonna pass on this one. Haven't played the Cognition series either, so I don't have a big frame of reference.

Updated OP for new deal: REPERFECTION (Volume 1), an indie adventure game.

 

Here's a review in case anyone's interested (I collect adventure games so I'll probably get this).

The Bad:
Short and very easy; black and white artwork is unnecessarily drab; some story points feel rushed or unbelievable; ends on a cliffhanger with a long wait before the next episode.

Pretty much the problem with most every adventure game I've played lately (minus the B&W bit). I'm fine with episodic games, but once in awhile I'd like a game to last MORE than a mere 2-3 hours. Not considering the price into this, they just feel rushed to me more often than not :cry:

Yup, they sure don't make 'em like they used to...

 

Even putting the full 3, 4, or 5 "episodes" together doesn't make up a huge game.

that is of course assuming all the episodes come out *cough*Kentucky Route Zero*cough*. You never know with indie games if development could just stop, but I guess for the price its a small risk, but I'd be annoyed by the lack of story closure even still.

 

All this just makes me really wish the older Double Fine adventure games were on Steam. Maybe one day :pray:

Did they stop development on Kentucky Route Zero and which older Double Fine adventure games do you want on Steam?

I don't think so, its just been a long time without any word on a release date or even an update on progress. And I am a huge DF fan and want to play all of them. The older ones are rather hard to find though, and having them all on steam would be great. I suppose specifically Grim Fandango is at the top of my list, though Day of the Tentacle (maybe confused on the title) isn't far behind. I think Lucasarts owned the rights to them though, so I don't have a lot of hope in ever seeing them rereleased :cry:

Ah. I see the confusion. Double Fine didn't make the games but Tim Schafer did lead the projects when he was working at lucasarts. I also think the chances are slim that they will be released on steam but I do have high hopes that GOG will eventually carry them. With Disney holding the rights now I think that the chances of them being re-released are higher then when Lucasarts had them.

 

As for Kentucky Route Zero act 2 wasn't released that long ago so I don't think that they have work enough on act 3 to make any definite announcements yet.

oh, I didn't know act 2 ever got released. Shows what I know :dunce: and I guess I was pretty confused about those adventure games to, but everyone always seems to refer to them as Double Fine games that it must have just seeped into my subconscious. GOG would probably be most likely I agree, I just don't know if they have any interest (Disney) in releasing the older games, what with shutting down Lucasarts and cancelling upcoming games (RIP 1313).

 

Thanks for clarifying all that though, seems I was out of the loop on a lot of this.

This is very loosely related but why isn't the OG Shogun Total War on GOG's roster? Question for anyone.

I think I might pick this up for the GOG key. It looks like most of the BTA content is included with the GOG copy. I'd only be missing out on the mini game bonus "Paradise Perfect".

Hmmm.  I just got an email for this deal but I'm not sure if I want it now or if I want to wait for another bundle (missed out on Royale).  It does look odd but in a good sort of way.

I haven't been interested in anything from IGS for a few weeks (so I haven't read this thread for a while, so feel free to crucify me if this has been mentioned before) but I just bought The Real Texas (I thought I already had it, but apparently not). 

Anyway, I noticed that clicking the Star above the BTA doesn't set your price at the BTA price anymore, it set it to $2 when the BTA was $1.77.  Very, very sneaky. :lol:

That's because everything is bigger in Texas, even the minimum payment :)

Good catch. I just went in for a buck when I bought this, so I obviously didn't notice if this was like this for the whole bundle or if it's new. I'll definitely keep this in mind in the future.

I really need to watch that series again.  I got a little sad when I watched Heavens Fall (the scene with Hutton and Chaykin on the train) right after finishing Nero Wolfe because there was no more Nero Wolfe.
