I have GalCiv2, (with the Dark Avatar expansion), purchased at retail 10 years go. There is a lot in there for fans of the genre, massive customization and options, and fantastic music.

Can't comment much beyond that, as I've never felt at home with RTS games, and generally didn't stick with them too long. This includes 'Sins of a Solar Empire', 'Age of Empires 2', and the 'Company of Heroes' games I had back around the same years.

While you are over at humble bundles. Destiny 2 for 12 bucks is an amazing deal If you want a Halo / Borderlands / Warframe game. Picked it up a week ago and have played it non stop. The shooting mechanics in there are top notch. Very good. Feels like insurgency with how responsive it is. Has aliens though.... and laser guns... No worse than borderlands though. Has 3 person coop through all but the first opening of the game (30-40 min). We've got a group playing it from SimHQ and agw.

https://www.humblebundle.com/monthly?refc=TeW3K8

Us that reference link and it gives me 8 bucks credit which I've been using to gift people copies of the game that might like it.

Humble throws free games around fairly frequently, it's worth signing up for notifications from them.

I'm surprised you say this Master. I've watched a few YT reviews of Destiny 2 and they weren't very favorable and so I've not installed the game yet.

I watched them too and thats why I didnt buy it on release. At 12 bucks I finally said ill give it a shot.

And its #%&*$# amazing. (I think they have done a bunch of quality of life patching since release. They are 2 DLC expansions in so the game right now is probably a lot different than it was on release.

For instance, if you watch the angry joe show review. Pretty much everything he hits them for has either been fixed or I didnt find it near as bad as he did. There is still an issue with the story not making sense and no in game codex. But everything else he mentioned was moot by the time I installed and played it.

The story is kind of bland though. So if you do give it a try go until you get to the EDZ open area zone. (the first of the open world zones) Takes about 30 min to do the first story/tutorial.

I just bought IL-2 Battle of Moscow at 40% off. 777 Studios is having a big sale on a lot of their flight sim titles right now.

If you do give it a try the tutorial takes about 40-60 min to finish. Sofar that first tutorial is the worst part of the game. After it opens up it starts to shine. Check the discord if you rin into issues. Me and kludger have been playing it quite a bit.

Crusader Kings 2 is currently on sale
https://store.steampowered.com/app/640140/Expansion__Crusader_Kings_II_Jade_Dragon/

IMO it's worth buying the bundle with all DLCs. On sale, the total price comes down to essentially a full-price game, but the DLCs are great.

I dunno about Crusader Kings 2...

Damn game is hard as hell to get into. Menu and information overload with little in terms of graphical representation to go with it, otherwise.

CKII is the grandest grand strategy game. Its not for everyone though. And you almost need a veteran to bounce questions off of because the game started complicated and got 10x more complicated with every DLC they released.

After Master's recommendation of Destiny 2 I decided to bite the bullet and sign up for a whole year of Humble Monthly. It was a nice bonus when I saw
that June also included Styx: Shards of Darkness.

Anyway, the latest unlocks of Hearts of Iron IV and Blackwake don't interest me so if anyone here wants them I'll gift them to you. Both are Steam keys.

mbeaver you don't seem to understand humble, its a montly anounce last month was destiny and stix for this month , hearts of iron and blackwake will only unlock next month, they are just telling you before hand what you will get, if you buy the montly fee you can cancel at any time so you wont buy them. but before you cancel check the treasure trove to see if there is anything of interest there, last i saw there was the allan wake,

They unlock some early. Here's what the email says:


Your subscription has successfully renewed

Start playing Hearts of Iron IV, Blackwake, and Portal Knights now!

DOWNLOAD

Check back on July 6th, 2018 at 10 AM PST when the rest of your mystery games unlock!

If you run it as a subscription they bill you the last thursday of the month for the next month's sub. Then once it is announced on the first day of the month you get access to the early release games immediately. (in this case HI4, Blackwake and Portal Knight) and then the rest of the previous month's games unlock (on the first as well).

So looking at last month's sub which was June's Humble Monthly.

April 26: Autobill for June's Monthly Bundle
May 1: The Rest of May's Games were announced and Released
May 1: June's Early Access Game was Announced and was playable (Destiny 2)
May 28: July's Bundle Autobill
June 1: Rest of June's Games were Announced and Released (Styx, Yooka-Laylee, Cook, serve, delicious 2, Pillars of Earth, Bear with me, suguri 2 and subserial network)
June 1: July's Early Access Games were announced and playable (Blackwake, HOI4, Portal Knight)

It's really confusing as to when you pay for which month and when you get what month's games. But if you bought a whole year you dont have to worry about much of that mbeaver.

Keep in mind though that they accounce the main unlock games on the 1st but you wont unlock until the 5th unless you unlock them manually. So if you bought a year and they announce games you dont care about you can "pause" your subscription before the 5th and save that month for a game you want. Or you can unlock right away and play.

Thank's for the heads-up on that, Master. Since I didn't get any takers I'll go ahead and use the pause for this month.

I've never actually dont it myself so good luck. I only ever buy a month and then cancel the subscription immediately smile I think it all just comes down to if you clicked the early unlock button or not.

Dammit, took my time and forgot about this and did not manage to get it for my son! I think we can do the Family option on Steam where he can play Xenonauts on his computer when I'm not playing it, so not a total loss. I don't think you can MP on that game anyway, right?

Insurgency is a bit too "twitch" for me. I'm much more of an ArmA 3 coop military shooter player.

Insurgency has it's strong points. It is very much like CS, to me. Good movement, weapon handling, and quick play.

The AI doesn't really fortify, though, they are nearly always rushing the player, without much in the way of teamwork. Sometimes they are in the "conga line" where they can be mowed down in bulk. So players looking to capture enemy positions or strong points won't find things like garrisoned buildings, static nests, or whatnot.

It can be a decent, laid back shooter experience, though. I logged about 500 hours or so. Worth a try.

Insurgency is more of a watered down Red Orchestra. The original mod was much more like a modern Red Orchestra, but the retail game made it more mainstream. Still decent though.

It really isn't anything like CS at all. R6 Siege & CS are pretty close, with Insurgency being closer to RO.

It is FREE. so add it to your account and try it for yourself. Worst case you waste time and bandwidth and never play it again.

Im not sure I'd say that insurgency is like classical RO. It really is it's own thing.

Maybe the PvP stuff. I only play the coop checkpoint mode. You start on one side of the map and you have to push through enemies and take objectives. When you capture an objective there is a random chance for a counter attack. Then you move onto the next objective. The maps are "open" but still fairly linear.

If you have a PS4 and PS Plus, Destiny 2 is free as of today. God of War 3 remastered free in Sept.
Last month Mafia 3 was free, so PS + is finally giving out worthwhile games.

Project Cars 2 is a pretty good racing sim. The single player is a bit stale but it's a lot of fun in multiplayer.

Anyone on the fence for KC:D or it's dlc, Deep Silver has a publisher sale on Steam this weekend. 40% off the game, 25% off the dlc.

I'm ambivalent about From the Ashes, but did enjoy the newer Amorous Adventures of Hans Capon.

It is a quirky title, less mainstream than Witcher 3 or Skyrim... but all the better for it in my experience. Some bugs, some jank, and performance can be iffy in some areas, especially if you have settings too high. World design and story are pretty solid though, and melee combat is among the closest to IRL fencing I've seen in games (if mostly in unarmoured style).

I'll second Lieste's recommendation for KCD. Great RPG in my view. I only wish Exodus was part of this sale (i mean available for download). Did anyone like Saint's Row (3 or 4)? That's a really good deal, but I've not played a game like this since GTA San Andreas. Might be a fun change of pace.

There is even a map that shows where in the world people are currently downloading the game. As I type this, someone is downloading it somewhere on or in the ocean to the west of the African coast. Maybe they tapped into an underwater fiber-optic line. Probably satellite internet, though.

It's crazy to think COH 2 has been out 5 years. I've been playing it pretty regularly since release.

It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost comes in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman

Thanks Red2112. I'd never heard of Epic Games but I signed up and got my copy. Looks like they give away a free game every 2 weeks,I'll keep my eye on that.

I got Shadow Complex for free quite some time ago on that Epic Games program. I had it on Xbox360 but its a really great 2.5D platformer especially on PC. I only use their program to access that game. Perhaps I need to run it more often if they continue to bring free games from time to time.

I only paid 5 bucks for SOMA but it was still too much in my opinion.

The story started off a bit interesting but I just kept waiting and waiting and waiting for something to happen but it never did.

Epic has announced it's next free game, Super Meat Boy. Epic Games


Super Meat Boy is a tough as nails platformer where you play as a boy without skin who needs to save his girlfriend made of bandages from an evil fetus in a jar wearing a top hat and a monocle.

Ok then, at least it's free.

I own Kholat and its a pretty good game. I like games like this with mysterious themes and it has great atmosphere. I've never finished it but its a good "walking" simulator/mystery/adventure. I've always struggled with performance on this one though unfortunately.

I tried to play the original a couple years back but the graphics were just too outdated for my tastes.

Perfect! Thank you, Wango. Looks like something my daughter and I can play together.

No problem. It' a 30 $ game, so it should be half decent.

Also a heads up, it looks like the Steam Summer sale starts June 25th.

I finally upgraded my PC this year, so I am likely to grab a few games. The last few years there was no point, I had everything of interest that would run on my old rig.

I have about 6-7 games in my wish-list that I have some interest in but I honestly doubt I'll buy more than 2 at most.

I'm waiting for Deadstick - Bush Flight Simulator but that won't be in the sale.

Master, I do not find Destiny 2, even using the "search" feature. Probably just me but Wicki shows is as a "multi-player only". Is that your experience? I do not play muliplayer and MMOGs, so, is there a "single player" option?

Sounds interesting,though.

GoG is offering a free game, "Obduction", from Cyan, the creators of Myst series.

Thanks DaBBQ. I've had that one on my wish list. I don't like their methods, but I've been grabbing as many of the free games on Epic that I can.

I forgot about this thread for a moment, but they recently had What Remains of Edith Finch and Untold Stories for free and I think simultaneously or almost. Both of those I had on my wish list. However, I just discovered they have another new free game available and its another one I've been interested in and its available right now. Arabian Nights themed FPS developed by some Bioshock people.

I missed out on Axiom Verge because I forgot to check back with them and lost track of time. You got to really keep an eye on Epic's storefront because they don't seem to give much info on the freebies and how long they will be up.

Got an F-117A sighting at GOG right now for $1.49...

Another favorite of mine, Subwar 2050 for $3.39...

Subwar includes very imaginative reading material to help set the mood ('Under Currents' magazine). It's a game that makes me think the developers really enjoyed creating it.
