I boughtt Dune Spice Wars on sale. If you like RTS games and you are a fan of the Dune universe I highly recommend it.

To this day I have never seen the movies or read any of the Dune books. I am definitely a Sci-fi nerd but something about this series just does not appeal to me.

It's just like everything else. Not everything will float everyone's boat even when it is widely popular. To this day I've not seen a single episode of Breaking Bad, The Sopranos or The Wire. The subject matter just doesn't interest me.

I started the Wire but stopped in season 2. The show felt too much like office work.

Even if one's viewing taste is not of the genre, the series is so well-crafted, it is a good watch.
I personally rate it as one of the best drama series ever, up there with 'Band of Brothers'.

Mount & Blade II: Bannerlord (40% off) This Is what I just started playing this week (Steam version), I like It, It´s Immersive and looks nice. I also love how the combat works. It still has some quirks from what some users state, but It´s far more polished and playable then It´s Initial release. Then you have the mods that fix some of the parts that still need a bit of work. Overall It´s one of those game that you can get lost In, and has a good replay value.

I love Warband, and I also adore Bannerlord. There's a couple things Warband does better:

Feasts (that interminable butterlord!)

Warzones (procedurally generated battle areas that are always different)


But there's many things Bannerlord does better such as graphics. Both are amazing games, and anyone who has avoided them should give them a shot. They are basically a modern version of "Defender of the Crown," but amped up on steroids.

GOG has The Beast Inside free for the next ~60 hours. I'm completely unfamiliar with this one as I've never heard of it until now. Seems to be some sort of horror/mystery game.

Red2112, that football game looks cool, thanks. I'm not a football fan by any means, but retro football games are actually pretty fun, and that looks like the work of people who are really passionate about their project.

For the rest of you, some of you might remember the old Sea Dogs series...here is a totally free version of the newest release coming up! The story mode costs money, but for us free roamers, the free price tag is pretty sweet:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/1782680/Caribbean_Legend_Sandbox/

There is a full demo out now here:

https://store.steampowered.com/app/2230980/Caribbean_Legend__Pirate_OpenWorld_RPG/

It looks old, but not in a bad way, and it is pretty immersive. The music is rotten, but as it is all MP3 files in a folder, you can replace with whatever you like, or just go silent. The writing is also not super, but once again, it's free, and I think that the text can be edited if you have hours to spare!

Glad you liked It. Yes, It actually beats all the new stuff IMO, but there Is a learning curve when It comes to the controls. You might also want to check out Pro Strategy Football 2023 (link below). I have the 2022 version, but In the 23 version they added better player animations and now 23 cost the same as 22, as theirs a newer 2024 version out. You can mod any of them and add official teams and such. Not much of a football fan myself, but was when I was a teen when the Buccaneers just came out (orange outfit), and well both of these games tickle my Football needs when I miss that biggrin
Steam:
Pro Strategy Football 2023 Steam store

As for Sea Dogs, I just bought Corsairs Legacy some days ago, and have been tracking the new stuff, and playing the old stuff too. I opened a Age of Sail thread (bottom forum) with more Info.

Ahoy!

Dakar Desert Rally is free on Epic this week if that's your thing.


A guy walks into a bar and hears two women speaking in a British accent. He asks, "Are you ladies from England?" One says to him "No, it's Wales, you idiot!" So, then the guy says, "Okay, sorry. So, are you two whales from England?"

I'm at the minimums to play this but it runs pretty good, and looks beautiful. It has three skill levels of play from a forgiving Sport Mode to full on Simulation where you have to Navigate to each Checkpoint. Worth it just to free roam or compete.
