Will wait for GWG.

Will it though? We got the first, then the third in GWG. If it was going to come to GWG we would have got the second already before the third, right?

Can’t believe they’re still charging that much for Elex. Game was destroyed by critics but yet still hasn’t even gone as low as almost every better release in 2017.

Nice try, but I'm not buying. I'm with David Hibiki on this one.

Find there is an extended edition of The Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing II, so I see what is included in that and it turns out I already own this.

Wish if you own a collection or special edition and you look at the game by itself it will say owned instead of allowing you to buy again.

There was a time when I would've bought Energy Cycle just for the super easy 1000G. I think those days are over for me. I saw the price and I'm still not even tempted. Problem is I now have a bunch of shitty ass games that are easy completions just sitting in my backlog and they'll never be played because I can't be bothered anymore. I still love 100%'ing my games....but only the ones I really, truly want to play, and not just for gamerscore.

Blood Bowl 2 is a really fun strategy game, but they have most of the races hidden behind DLC as it's a niche game audience. Still, one of my favorite strategy games of all time.

Came into the old thread and saw it was locked and initially thought someone brought up politics again hahaha.

 

Oh man, got the new garage opener installed but not before a few troubleshooting steps with the wiring. Turns out my father didn't follow the very specific instructions and once I realized where the problem was and set everything up with the right wiring process, success! Only took 3 days, started last week as it was too freakin' cold to work on it this weekend, as the 1st day was mostly disassembling the old one, 2nd day was assembling the new one, mounting brackets, sensor bars, etc & day 3 was running all the wiring and installing the wire to the unit itself.

 

So 2018 showed up and the garage opener broke, the snowplow nailed our mailbox (although it was still intact) & the lamp - bulb & lamp apparently - in the gaming den blew and a fuse in the kitchen blew. Man, starting off the new year with a literal bang.

^^ Sounds like my late-2017/early 2018, but substitute garage door opener with garage door springs, dryer, dishwasher and wife’s deer impaled car.

So bad date night is a blessing.

That sounds awful. We too started the new year off badly with like 3 days of frozen pipes and one day where one eventually busted once they were thawed. Fun times.

I'm slightly tempted to get it. Is the base game worth it? Do you know if it has enough variety in the races without dlc?

Is that a good price for Thumper? I know this was on sale on PSN a few weeks back but I passed, can't remember how much it was. Really want to play this but might have to wait until under $10.

Lol, oh man, that was always on my mind as how much cold it got all of a sudden but thankfully that went alright. Now it's warming up a bit and we're in for rain the rest of the week?! Go home mother nature, you're drunk.

Thumper is worth $13 if you like Rez-like games. I bought the PC version for the VR support, and the Xbox version because it's my gaming home, it was worth the double-dip for me.

 

I've owned Crypt of the Necrodancer for awhile and can't get into it. I keep trying it, as it does seem like something I SHOULD like, but it's just too weird for me.

 

The rest is an easy pass. Energy Cycle isn't worth more than 50 cents, it's a Flash game. And Save the Ninja Clan, even at $2, I don't need another Super Meat Boy clone in my life when Super Meat Boy itself is still in my backlog.

I’ve heard that Elex is very enjoyable if you can see past the Eurojank™️. I personally quite enjoyed what the studio made in the past, even though it didn’t have the most polished presentation at times.

Many reviewers on Steam swear that it is an amazing title.  And any offhand mention of it in on a popular gaming website (Reddit, ResetEra) will almost always elicit a few people saying it was their 2017 GotY.

 

I bought the game on Steam toward the end of the winter sale, but have not played it.  I have, however, watched several streams.  I think people that say Elex's jank & bugs are on par with Bethesda titles at their respective releases are grossly misleading would-be purchasers.  Elex's combat is not just bugged, its fundamentally under-developed.  Further still, the developers have been very slow in making patches.  (Why is the title punishingly difficult for all new play-throughs, for instance...?)  What the game does, though, is provide a degree of role-playing choice over the narrative that just isn't present in titles today.  Branching quest paths!  Different factions!  Moral ambiguity!  The jank is real...but so is the thirst among gamers for true influence in a story's outcome.

 

Definitely watch some vids and streams to decide if its right for you.  (I did my research and took a chance, and even I'm not sure it was a good idea.)

Thumper was one of my favorites last year.  Blood Bowl 2 is a steal at that price.  If you have a passing interest in boardgames or Games Workshop specifically, then you probably already own it.

Was tempted by Van Helsing last week, and now Van Helsing II this week. I'll get then eventually when they're on sale to go with Van Helsing III, but I'm gonna try to stick to a 1 buy per completion rule for a while.

Thanks anyway Bloomy.
