    The new BANDAI NAMCO Bundle 3 is out and I think it looks quite interesting!

    $1+
    • ENSLAVED: Odyssey to the West
    • PAC-MAN Championship Edition DX
    • Impact Winter


    BTA (~$9.50+)
    • Little Nightmares
    • 11-11 Memories Retold
    • Get Even
    • Project CARS


    $15+
    • God Eater 2: Rage Burst
    • Sword Art Online: Fatal Bullet


    $25+
    • Tekken 7


    Nothing in the highest two tiers interests me too much, but I might invest in the BTA tier just because of Little Nightmares, as that one looks particularly interesting! Has anyone played it? The other games don't look too bad either. 11-11 Memories Retold looks really odd in a cool and unique way, and I don't think I've even heard of it before, but I'm definitely going to try it out.

    Yeah Little Nightmares is good. Enslaved too!

    Impact Winter and Get Even look kinda interesting.

    The God Eater games are essentially Monster Hunter Lite with more focus on the story. God Eater 2: Rage Burst on Steam also comes with God Eater Resurrection (the complete edition of the first game).

    Tekken 7 is IMO the best Tekken game, but if you're not into fighting games or 3D fighting games it's not going to be for you.

    The full humble monthly for April unlocked yesterday

    First off, A short hike is absolutely wonderful and everyone with access should go play it right away! I started it up just to see what it's like and ended up spending an hour and a half playing straight through it. It is short, surprising, delightful, and adventurous. Evoked the same kind of feelgood-vibes as Little Big Adventure 2 and Grow Home.

    As for the other games. Steel Rats is good. I've already played it so if anyone wants my key, lemme know. Has anyone played Dandara and She Remembered Caterpillars? They seem interesting, so I've downloaded them. Tannenberg seem to be a multiplayer FPS, so not my kinda thing.

    Thanks for the recommendation, I'm downloading A short hike now... I'm surprised and also slightly disappointed at myself that downloading and installing games manually feels like such a chore these days! I'm also gonna try Steel Rats as soon as I'm done with some of the games that I'm currently playing.

    Next month's main game is Assassin's Creed: Origins! I'm actually looking forward to playing an AC game after a few years.

    Played half an hour of She Remembered Caterpillars. Looks nice, but I'm not enjoying the puzzles, nor is the narrative pulling me in. Played 73 min of Dandara, didn't like the movement system at first but I'm kinda coming around on it.

    I'm bumping this thread because Kingdom Come: Deliverance is the main Humble Monthly game of July. That's a good enough reason to subscribe to Humble Monthly for a month or a few. There's also Surviving Mars of course, and it looks somewhat interesting, and as usual, there'll be more games that will be revealed later.

    Also, the Very Positive Bundle 3 (available until the end of July, I think) looks pretty good, but henke already mentioned that in the other thread, so let's take the discussion there.

    A Short Hike, which was a Humble Original, just came out on Steam with added content. If you subscribed to Humble Monthly in April you can now find a Steam key for it in your Humble key inventory. Get it, it's one of the best games of the year if you ask me.

    Nice, I was sad when it ended and kept going back to poke around. Looks like I skipped April's monthly; I wonder if they updated the Trove version with the extras.

    August's Humble Monthly games are Slay the Spire and Squad. Slightly underwhelming, I thought at first, but on closer look Slay the Spire actually looks pretty cool. Squad, though? I don't think I've even heard of it before, and since it seems to be a multiplayer FPS, I'm not interested at all.

    In other news, there's also a Crusader Kings II bundle with the main game and (all?) the DLC available at the moment that might be of interest to someone. I think I tried one of the Paradox strategy games many many years ago, must have been some old Europa Universalis game, and I gave up pretty quickly as it was such a complicated mess. Is CK2 at least a bit easier to learn?

    It's still a Paradox made Grand Strategy Game. You should expect to have to spend 20+ hours learning the basics and then another 100+ hours learning advanced stuff. Before you add in the various DLC where you may have to spend more time learning new systems and game mechanics.

    Squad is great fun though. It's based on a Battlefield 2 mod (Project Reality) that focused on realism and teamwork. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lc7iqfqSCQ4&t=160

    Nope. One of the things that makes it bearably easy though, is that there isn't a proper way to play. It's healthy to approach it like a rogue-like where you get to keep playing as your heir.

    This is about the same point, but the Paradox grand strategy games are IMO best played as role playing, where you just roll with whatever's going on and engage as best you can figure, rather than as a traditional strategy or 4X game.

    I mean, if you don't have the energy to learn the systems all that deeply, you can absolutely play the game as a bumbling ruler that doesn't have the energy to learn the systems around him, and then you just experiment with it. And the game will roll with you and give you an interesting story out of it, probably not a very successful one, but an interesting one. This is one of the better ways to figure the game out and play it in any event.

    CK2 is good especially on the personal level. The weird rules of succession and fealty can be confusing, but anyone can understand a jealous brother that feels betrayed and starts amassing his own army to press a succession claim, dividing the loyalties of different provinces and nobles, that you have to respond to, the army, those provinces and nobles, and the brother and his claim all at the same time. That personal touch especially is what makes CK2 a special game of the Paradox bunch.

    Agony
    Butcher
    The Town Of Light

    BTA:
    Darkwood
    Beholder 2
    Pacify

    Darkwood has plenty of fans around here. I never finished it, but would still highly recommend it.

    Humble Bundle is offering Endless Space as a freebie for the next 44 hours! It might be worth getting if you're into turn-based strategy games. Or actually, it might be worth getting even if you aren't. I think it's one of those games that you really need to invest some time in, and I haven't cared about that genre since Civilization III, so it's not going to place too high on my ever-growing to-play-list.



    Having said that, this month's main Humble Monthly game (for subscribers) is BattletechBattleTech - another turn-based strategy game. I've never really cared about mechs and stuff either, so hopefully the other monthly games will be more interesting, otherwise this month will be a bit of a disappointment.

    As someone who enjoys Space 4X games, Endless Space is not in my top 10. There are some simplifications in parts the gameplay that lead to needless complications of the overall game for me to enjoy it more. It may be worth a look if you want to check out the genre for the price of free.

    It does have a lot of good ideas. Most of which are also present in the far superior (IMO) Endless Legends.

    Ooooh, I actually wanna play BattleTech. AND I see the Trove now also features Wilmot's Warehouse, which RPS has been raving about.



    I might just get this month's.

    November's Humble subscriber early unlock games:

    * Call of Duty: WWII
    * Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy
    * Spyro Reignited Trilogy

    After last month's disappointing list of games, I wasn't too pleased to see these three games at first, but even though they're all something that I'd normally skip, I'm now kind of looking forward to giving them a chance. I mean, I've never played a CoD game before, so I think now's a good time to change that. This one doesn't look too bad either, and hey, unless I'm mistaken, CoD: WWII is a modern FPS with a proper health bar (auto-regenerating health is for n00bz )! Spyro and Crash Bandicoot both look kinda similar, but Spyro somehow seems more interesting and looks more fun (I've never played any of those games either) so I'm gonna give it a go.

    Ooooh, glad I held off on getting it last month, this is a much more tempting offer. Downloading Spyro now, also wanna check out COD:WW2 singleplayer campaign + recent Trove additions Wilmot's Warehouse, Shady Knight, and Once Upon A Crime In The West.

    Ok, just played an hour of Wilmot's Warehouse and I can confirm it's good stuff. Like a more fleshed out, slow-burn version of Yakoob's Fulfillment Center. Not sure if it'll have the same commentary as Koob's game, but I did already get a warning for messing up on my first day.

    Also played a bit of Shady Knight. Anyone longing for more Dark Messiah/Dishonored combat might wanna give it a whirl, as it's very much a fast-paced arcade version of that kinda stuff.



    I kinda liked it, but also was put off my its difficulty. Get hit once and you'll have to replay the level from the start, which is especially annoying early on when you're just trying to figure out the rules of the game.

    5 hours and 14 minutes later, my career as a warehouse manager comes to an end. I got SACKED. :| Fun game though. My initial comparrison to Koob's game was probably mostly because I'd played it so soon before. Wilmot's Warehouse is low on commentary. It's mainly just a game about the geniune joy of organizing things.

    Also played a bit of Spyro 1. Ehhhh... not hooked yet. Do the later Spyro games improve the gameplay? At least early in Spyro 1 it's too simplistic to be much fun.

    The One Special Day Bundle is still available for two more days.

    $1+
    • Broken Age
    • Purrfect Date

    BTA (>$5.40)
    • The Swords of Ditto: Mormo's Curse
    • Stronghold Crusader 2
    • Bomber Crew

    $10+
    • Dirt 4
    • Tannenberg

    This time I went for the highest tier, just because I wanted to see what Dirt 4 is like. Bomber Crew is one of those games that I've thinking about buying for a long time, and I might give Broken Age a try too some time. Not a bad deal for $10.
