In Topic: Grimrock Pre-order 20% Discount

28 March 2012 - 02:38 PM

Are there any pre-order bonuses?

If you pre-order now you get 20% off the retail price and early access to following goodies:
- A beautifully crafted game manual
- Legend of Grimrock world map
- Custom made grid paper to print out for all your mapping needs
- Grimrock theme music
- Wallpapers
- Art sheets illustrating foul creatures of Mount Grimrock
- Team photo

I quoted the pre-order bonuses above.

I like the grid paper, especially. Now you know we're talking old school.

I enjoyed Valkyria Chronicles quite a bit too. Probably the most tactical fun I've had since Jagged Alliance 2 way back when.

Good source of info: http://hardforum.com...d.php?t=1645885

Several options are mentioned there, and I'd recommend reading it over, but personally, I'd take a serious look at the LG 32LK450. A quote from the above link:

- LG xxLK450 series, very similar to last year's popular xxLD450. Low input lag, quick pixel refresh, 4:4:4 support. But it's a panel lottery again where a "Y" in the box product code means it has an IPS panel. (A "D" means it has a VA panel). Edit: JoshZH claims he had two of them with VA panels that passed 4:4:4 with the EDID fix, here's his reply to someone who questioned him about the VA version.

I'm using a slightly older LG 32LD450 as a monitor and it's been excellent. The 4:4:4 support mentioned above is important if you'd like to avoid certain colored text appearing smudged or unclear.

2012 models from most brands should be shipping within a couple months too.

Definitely a good deal. Some of the better fantasy strategy games released in semi-recent years.
