Oh and since I think I saw it in a bundle somewhere a little while ago, I remember that Majesty 2 is also a really fun game. It's not too hard but the gameplay is quite unique. You build a town where you can hire heroes. You can't control the heroes directly, but only indirectly through putting bounties on something you want done (like slaying a monster or exploring an area). They will spend the loot they find in your shops for better armor, potions, etc. It's really quite enjoyable.


I LOVED Majesty 2 and put around 20 hours into it (a big contribution for me) but got massively stuck late on in the campaign. I had the choice of taking on either Region A or Region B, both stupidly hard, and just couldn't make any progress. I even YouTubed a few help videos to see where I was going wrong.

It's a really fun game but the difficulty ramped up too much for me to handle late on. But for a dollar or two (which I think is what it's going for in the Steam Trade thread) it's well worth it.

The cheesy Sean Connery ripoff voiceover man just makes it that little bit better.

Last day to Kickstart Legends of Dawn. You can also help Greenlight it on Steam. I've done both, already. :)

Likewise. I made a joke earlier about only doing it because they had the foresight to put an attractive Croatian woman in their video but I really do think it looks like it has promise. My first time contributing to Kickstart anything so we'll see how it goes.

It was in the Paradox mini bundle Amazon had. I bought it mostly for the CK2 DLC, but the games were of interest too.

Is the first Majesty game worth playing, or should I just skip it and play 2?

Haha, same here and exactly same reasoning and position. The entire presentation of the game, gameplay and marketing all seemed, for a lack of a better word, 'attractive' to me. The game fits in with some of my preferred genres and it looks to likely be greenlit soon. I'm actually pretty excited that they're moving on pretty fast with their stretch goals.

I just tried Majesty Gold again and I got pounded on a beginner's mission. That game is harder than 2 haha. It's kinda hard to find out the stuff you need in that old game. I will try it again when I have more time to figure it all out though.

Majesty 2 is definitely friendlier :P so you can go right ahead and start with that anyway. I don't think there's much to be lost story-wise and if you like it and don't mind the old graphics (I kinda like them for their nostagic feeling myself) you can always try that later.

I'll ask here since I didn't see a GOG thread.

Leisure Suit Larry 2-6 worth $9.99? I'm figuring on grabbing the remake of the original, but I'm wondering if I should get the four sequels.

Looks like the Indie Gala Magicka bundle added "Home". On a side note, Steam has been acting really weird and slow for this morning, so it took me a while to realize I already owned it :D

Yikes! Homefront is the best bad SP shooter campaign I've played. Or is that the worst good...

Steam is having a stroke, yes. Guess they're still having issues from last night that they only managed to temporarily calm down.

Jeez, I joked about it early in the week when Sanctum had it's midweek madness, but of course Steam heard my joke and made Magicka the weekend deal. Can they just both be permently at the price point they are at now?

I will say this, the free weekend to go along with 75% off Magicka is not as common, so that is a plus. Outside of that, it's a little annoying sometimes to see so many Steam sales overlap with bundles. I mean, I know both Steam and the publishers have enough awareness to know a game is currently running in a bundle, so I don't know why they insist on putting it as a daily/weekend/etc. during that time.

Maybe their math backs it up though since bundles will always be more expensive (outside of IG HH) than any individual game.

The top right probably says " 's account " and thus isn't pulling all of the information it should be. Steam has been buckling for a couple hours now and with the turn of the deal only made things worse.

That isn't true, or at least not for all games. I remember when Civ 5 came out, people would play it on LAN doing exactly that with 1 Steam account. The devs were a bit pissed about it because you are obviously not suppose to do it and but from what I recall nothing ultimately came of it.


This didn't work for me when I tried. Maybe they patched it out. I personally think you should only ever need to buy 1 license of a game to be used in a single household. Blizzard have made my life miserable with all the restrictions in their recent games.

Nope, I'm logged in on my browser. I had to double check my library and it's still there, but is missing the TM's in the name. Maybe that's why it doesn't show up. No big deal, just odd.

Today's daily deal is Governor of Poker 2 - Premium Edition $19.99 $4.99

And wouldn't you know it, I bought it on the final day of the Holiday sale when it was 50% off. Because you know, it'll never be more than 50% off.

I played the online version of the first one and it was just a poker game. I'm not too big on those.

Free one hour trial of Part 2 there though to try it out yourself.
