Great idea.


You gotta be crazy, you gotta have a real need
You gotta sleep on your toes, and when you're on the street
You gotta be able to pick out the easy meat with your eyes closed
And then moving in silently, down wind and out of sight
You gotta strike when the moment is right without thinking

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.

Thanks Master, Prismata looks like it could be interesting. I've added it to my Steam Account.

Yes, thanks master. Does sound unique.

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.

As part of its 20th anniversary, Unreal is free on steam for a limited time, grab it while you can...
