Actually, I take back my plans to get HA Gold. I'll bite on the base game so I can get the TF2 team on my phone, but there's a sale going on teams on the app too, so I can just get shaolin for $1 there and keep not caring about the dwarves.

You got it from Steam or Amazon? Because in Amazon was 9.99 indeed but didn't include the DLC.


It was Steam.

Eh, there have already been a ton of indie games on daily and flash.


Yeah, all the indie games we see everywhere. I'm talking about the ones that no one seems to ever have on sale like SW: Battlefront 2 or Hinterland These sorts of titles are what flash sales should be used for, not Chivalry or Mirror's Edge for the 3rd time.

I'm still waiting for Sid Meier's Pirates to hit 75% off.

Has anyone played the Age of Wonders games? I ran across them while looking at Age of Empires III although right now they are only 50% off.

Also, I read a few comments on Kohan games but wasn't sure if they were serious or not. Good games for $5.00 (Warchest package)?

Well that was weird. I bought the Hero Academy 2-pk and Steam told me I had 3 extra copies of Guns Of Icarus to give away. They're not in my inventory though—the extra HA is.

I've only played the first one. It's sort of like Master of Magic (if you ever played that - if not, it's kind of like a turn based strategy game with RPG elements - your hero levels up and so do units, you can take some units and items from scenario to scenario), only with preset scenarios/campaigns instead of random maps. It's decent, but I loved loved loved Master of Magic and I could never really get into Age of Wonders.

Workin on it

Okay so I've got super annoyed at owning a lot of games on Steam and having to click each one to find out if I own it or not :)

So I'm writing a Greasemonkey / Ninjakit script that fixes that and a few other issues I have with Steam.

Finally, it'll "fix" the "No Image Available" for some games in the wishlist:

If anyone is interested in a copy of the script PM me. It's kind of in "beta" at the moment so make sure you at least have Greasemonkey (Firefox) or NinjaKit (Chrome) installed.

I've never actually had a problem keeping track of which games that I own. So I guess I don't need this. Though I applaud your efforts. Looks pretty awesome.

Also, on an unrelated note. I know I'm pretty late to the party on this, but LOL @ DOTA 2 winning the vote.

My girlfriend used to play WoW and is a Diablo fan and such. Do you think TSW is a game I should consider getting for the 2 of us?


I've heard it's pretty good and Amazon is running another sale on it in January. Plus, it's BTP and the microtrans (if there are any) are minimal.

But if you are willing to spend more, GW2 is the consensus leader of the new MMOs. Reportedly, they've lessened the grind and the quests have more diversity. It's BTP too, which is nice although the lowest I've seen is $30.

But since I'm cheap and was very comfortable with WoW mechanics, I have been sticking with TOR since November. I started off FTP but upgraded to the next tier with a Cartel Coin purchase, mostly for the sprint and 1st bank tab ($5 plus they don't cost coins, so you can upgrade something else).

So far I've hit around 40 on a 50 level cap (soon to be increased) and had a great time playing one of the most expensive games to develop. The biggest downside is the xp hit, which requires you to do every - and I mean every - quest plus some multi-player quests, instances, and multiplay to keep your leveling up through the content. But other than that, it's a great value and with a lot of patience you can get through all the good stuff without paying a cent. I do plan on bailing after I alt a couple 'cause end game sucks in general and is impossible without paying a $15 monthly subscription.


tl;dr - try TOR now to see if you like it, and if not maybe pick up TSW or GW2 on sale depending on your budget.

I'm curious about TOR after playing through KOTOR 1/2 (1 for the first time and 2 for the second). How large is it and if you've played and enjoyed KOTOR1/2 did it add to/lessen their appeal by virtue of essentially being KOTOR3?

Fear 3 is even worse than Fear 2. They should have stopped after the first one.

Loved FEAR 1; liked FEAR 2; FEAR 3 was just "okay."

It's not a very good or exciting game. Every time it starts amping up the tension, it fizzles away, and reverts back to a generic shoot and take cover FPS action game. I loved the first game, found some things to like about the second, but absolutely hated the third. Only get it if you absolutely have nothing else to play and feel like punishing yourself for anywhere around 5-10 hours worth of game time (I was slow so it took me 10).

While I completely agree with this, FEAR 3 is a pretty fun co-op game with a buddy. The ghost thing is interesting enough to carry it.

about 30 gigs iirc(i played back in december to january for a month, used the bounty hunter character, it was OK, but had lack of end game content. i regret not playing one of the more sequel storylines. i did the bounty hunter because i really like the voice actor(he was oghren from drage age origins, among other things)
