    Since Codexers love to talk shit about vermin, whether these are consoletards, game journos, ((them)) and so on, a game where you are an actual pest control manager should be right on their alley. It is turn-based to boot.

    Plead with the Elder Gods, 3D metroidvania adventure. Certainly reminds me of early 2000s 3D action adventures.

    The Book of the Game, a "turn-based open-world RPG, based loosely on the books of the same name." Looks like a strange mish-mash of game. Art style goes all over the place. Looks and sounds somewhat interesting and funny at the same time.

    In the 2 minutes of video we only got 2 monster types (the second one is shown for a couple of seconds near the end). I think these guys started the hype a bit too early.

    the follow up to Mini Metro is out, there's a bundle that includes both so if you own Mini Metro you can get it at a bigger discount.

    Has anyone here played this? Does it add anything worthwile to the mini metro formula or is it just more of the same?

    I've only played for an hour but so far it seems different enough from mini metro, and more refined in some areas
    The big differences are traffic management: Your cars bunch up and can congest and there's more things to consider, and placement of things/terrain is more of an issue because you have to deal w/ the various buildings popping along with rivers etc. there's also different end-week tiles, there's the standard bridge but also now a motorway where you can connect one half of the map to another (say there is a green business on one side of town but all the green houses are on the opposite side and things like stop lights or roundabotus to control traffic.

    here's a video of someone playing it to get an idea

    This was released earlier this month but searching didn't return any results and this looks like some here would like it.



    Some reviews say the puzzles are convoluted guesswork, but according to one of the dev replies they did test it to see if people could understand them:

    Terry Dowling was responsible for the story and writing in the previous games, hope the new guy is not worse.

    You could eat at McDonald's or your could pick up the uncontested GOTY during this sale and have a blast. Tick tock motherfucker, are you going to let this sale slip you by like I slipped away from your mom last night after fucking her to Elder Scrolls IV?
