    Oh, nice! My CD of the original game got dirty so I couldn't reinstall it but I did want to play it again someday.

    Seeing all these RPG hybrids coming out is so weird. I've never heard of 3/4 of them and I'll never play 96/100 of them. But if 12 year old me had had access to any - any - of these games, they would have become the complete focus of his young life. What a time to be a gamer.

    EDIT: Will they keep the original Adam West voice acting, I wonder? :cry:

    EDIT EDIT: Waaaaait, what kind of non-English speaking lunatics made this?
    The XIII remake devs are based in Malta. Their native tongue is Maltese. I didn't even know that was a language until just now.

    Is this some kind of unnecessarily complicated derivative of "Reigns"?

    Dunno, but I tossed it on my wishlist to keep a vague eye on it. That's a concept that could be a lot of fun, just remains to be seen how the execution is.

    Some codex slav said the russian reviews were funny for Warsaw stating things like how Poles were an aggressor in world war 2 or something. So far it seems like the actual mixed reviews are mostly about difficulty.

    It's not like DD wasn't ripping off Mignola big time. I kind of enjoy all the games trying to copy that style now, it's so pointless and silly.

    Apparently, Black Mesa
    In be4re EYES ON THE CHARACTERS LITERALLY UNPLAYABLE

    Tbh, from the vids it seems that they learnt all the wrong lessons from DD and DD already was the definition of an incredibly well-polished turd (that I liked a lot because ambience, the gameplay itself overstood its welcome and the grind was insane). Plus I wonder how much variety you can get with simply Nazis to shoot.

    EDIT: It's a pity tho, the set-up is very interesting and novel.

    Didn't really care for DD gameplay, becomes far too RNG heavy. Not a bad thing in itself, but it just turns your units into cannon fodder because of a bad RNG streak which is boring for me.
    I'd be entirely unsurprised if DD is actually scripted to perform 'negative' RNG streaks.

    Just Cause 3 is 85% off, that's my kind of price.

    Too bad the game is actually kind of shitty.

    Well, I was excited until seeing the core is a card game.

    Still sounds a bit interesting.

    If I'm interested in Trine, am I as well to start with Trine 1, which is often discounted to less than £5?
