Steam Sale

Just in case any of you hadn't noticed, steam is having a pretty big sale for Lunar New Year (big as in many games, though some of the discounts are not bad either).

I picked up a copy of Empyrion, which I've been eyeing for ages, and it is indeed a lot of fun, aside from giving me RSI from clicking so damn much.

It's only an alpha at this stage so still a bit unpolished, but it's fun driving around in your ship mining ores to build bigger ships, bases etc. And also making ships in ridiculous shapes.

Yeah I flagged that one for myself too. Might buy it now that it's got a recommendation.

Have you played Endless Legend? That one is 2/3 off right now.

Love endless legend, nice visuals, diverse races and great gameplay with many of the races requiring very different play techniques. An absolutely top notch example of a 4x game.

Yeah, it was a toss up between Endless Legend, Star Crawlers and Empyrion. But, at the end of the day I wanted something i could stop and start easily without forgetting the plot.

Really though it's just too addictive....i've been thinking all day about where I can find Sathium ore to make a capital ship

Hush!

Must not start to play that game until I have the Sundren stuff finished.

Armello's supposed to be good as well, though I can't say either way (got it ages back and still not played it). That's 25% off and looks lovely.

What, you mean you haven't see the Elysium inspired exo-suits with plasma-swords?

I prefer Age of Wonders 3 to EL. EL is a prettier game, and brings some truly new concept to 4X, and AoW3 is more of a HoMM clone than true 4X. I really dislike how few unit types each faction in EL has. Sure, there's minor villages, but those don't add anything to the faction's theme. I really don't like having to keep updating unit designs.

Anyways, AoW3 is also on sale, but you should wait until it's on sale on GoG and get it there.

Yeah, the unit pool is quite small in EL, that's definitely a drawback. But the pretties win for me, EL is simply lovely to look at.

No more games for me for a bit, simply got to many of the damn things I've bought and not played! Plus going to be grabbing a much anticipated Marvelous Designer license at the end of this month and that blows my entire software budget for the next few months in one go! (though I might possibly stretch for a copy of The Division. Maybe.)
