So, i decided to get that bundle myself and see if i get region locked keys - i indeed got CIS\RU keys for Borderlands games, but by the looks of things all the other ones were not region locked. This also doesn't answer the question whether or not i could redeem the "global" keys here :p

Here are some leftovers, they shouldn't be region locked.

Yes, Bioshock was a huge series, but I think that Arkane's efforts are going to peter out and there won't be similar AAA-level games for a long while. Maybe something like Cyberpunk will kick things off again if it's enough of the style. Tangentially, I'm thinking of Blade Runner 2049 and how hardcore fans are nuts for it, but it's not a mass hit bringing in big money.

i still have the painful guilt of not playing ladykiller in a bind so there's that too

Youíre playing the first one (of the reboot), not XCOM 2, right?

XCOM 2 has the same core, but iterates in (mostly good) ways. Granted I havenít finished either game (been busy), or bought the new expansion for 2 yet (canít justify the price right now), but yeah. I still really like the games, though I do agree that the missions can get repetitive/boring. Personally, the base-building/management aspect is the most entertaining part.

That is a good analogy. Blade Runner 2049 is the Prey (2017) of movies. It was universally well received, hardcores loved it, casuals didnt consume. Hopefully both have legs.

The Lizardmen faction in Total Warhammer 2 is a good case for the return of Dinosaurs. Instead of machines, they use dinosaurs for everything and are in general totally awesome. Saurus (prototypical Lizardmen) are particually great--I suspect they're the strongest frontline troop in the game for their price, with powerful attacks and high HP. But there's a dinosaur for every occasion.

e.g. Mammals ride mammals, so why not lizards riding lizards? It's just logical.

(The big guy is Mazdamundi, basically Jabba the Hutt crossed with Elminster. He is a Slann. The smaller guy on the raptor is a Saurus hero.)

WotC is really good. It takes the best parts of XCOM 2 and cranks it up to 11.

The most surprisingly thing about it is the immense improvement in mission variety. I didn't even realise it was an issue in XCOM 2, but in WotC it feels like no two missions are the same. Also does a much better job of making the combat timers feel justified.

Agents of Mayhem is the right price for me and looks like something I want to play from InquisitorAles' screenshots of it, but with everything else that's come out this year that I still need to catch up on I don't see how I'd play it in the next 3 months.

Danganronpa and my Steam Controller are driving me insane on my Macbook right now. Sometimes it launches without the FPS counter, when I launch it from Big Picture it launches in a tiny window but my biggest problem is how the game handles the Steam controller. In the intro videos and in the menus it works just like a controller. But once the actual game starts it treats it like keyboard and mouse making the button prompts all wrong.

In the past it was normal after 2 or 3 restarts but now it just doesn't want to work.

I guess people have two big reassons to play it.
I'm not interested in these kind of games, though, besides, there are better out there.

That it is getting released on Steam the same time as it is getting released on DLsite (actually it will release first on Steam) with a good translation and a free uncensoring patch that will also remove mosaic.
The game is also kinda fun (based on playing the demo) and lets people go through not engaging in the sex part if they want (seems to be the kind where you gotta lose to see sex).

I don't have any issue with generic RPGMaker assets use myself. They are there to be used.

Yes anything that is hard or takes skill or is a methodical action RPG is compared to Dark Souls in some way, shape or form. Mega 64 also did a video on everything being dark souls

God damn at that Agents sale price. If it dropped to 20 that fast, 10 shouldn't be too far down the road. I'll grab it then.

Besides, now that everyone is playing/finished Divinity Original Sin II, I am working through the first one. I'll start The Evil Within after that, while everyone is playing the sequel to that. Being so far behind on some of these games at least saves me some money. lol

That's what happens when you make a game so good, that it's hard to explain why it's so good, so the game title itself becomes the adjective for that.

I think I remember reading an interview with David Lynch where he was asked about when people compare something to Twin Peaks. His response was that it says more about the person making the comparison that it does about either Twin Peaks or what it was compared to. The same seems true about Dark Souls, especially the people who compare Mario, Assassin's Creed or a racing game.

I guess that's true, Twin Peaks is the Dark Souls of TV Shows after all.

I think I've made Talion strong enough to take on most captains in this game since i unlocked the stun to rapid sword attack now.
