MTB Downhill Simulator Icon
Love the concept...
by Dan L.13, USA - Oct 21st 2018

Love the concept & the graphics hold up over-all, but the UI + Controls need to be worked out better.

Only worth it - If you can get it on the cheap

Shadow Tactics: Blades of the Shogun Icon
An amazing spiritual sequel to Commandos
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

If you've played the Commandos series, you know what to expect, just buy this game.

For those who haven't:
Control a squad and infiltrate various locations in real time. It can get tricky to co-ordinate plans so you can optionally slow down time, although it's fun to challenge yourself to not do so.

Making and executing plans is a key aspect and the missions emphasise this by allowing a variety of approaches.

Graphically, the game gorgeous, whether you're infiltrating amongst the cherry blossoms, or scaling a Japanese castle.

A must have title for anyone with an interest in stealth or tactics games.

Dead Cells Icon
Great side-scrolling action platformer
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

Dead Cells mixes roguelite style "die and unlock" mechanics with side scrolling action RPG somewhat similar to Castlevania. Not quite a metroidvania genre game, but the inspiration certainly shows. Each run has a procedurally generated map (although tilesets/"biomes" are fixed, as is standard - e.g. Nuclear Throne). Combat is fast and smooth and the amazing pixel art seals the deal.

Highly recommended for fans of side scrolling action games or those who like run-based roguelikes with upgrades.

Hearts of Iron IV: Death or Dishonor Icon
Value depends on what countries you like to play
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

I found the additional mechanics (equipment conversion and capture, licensing) to not make much of an impact in my games. Thus, the bulk of this content boils down to the additional focus trees and events which are for countries I rarely play.

If you play Hungary, Romania, Czechoslovakia, or Yugoslavia a lot, this pack may be worth full price. If you simply want more content or to try out one of these countries, get it on sale. If you're interested in the game mechanics, however, skip this one.

Mount & Blade: Warband - Viking Conquest Reforged Edition Icon
An okay addition for Mount & Blade fans
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

While there are many mods which probably add more and better content to the game, if you've played them all and are looking for a viking setting to fight through, it's worth a buy at half price or so.

Crowntakers Icon
A fun, light turn based tactics game
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

Not the deepest game in the genre, especially compare to the greats like Final Fantasy Tactics and Fire Emblem, but for the price you definitely get a lot of bang for your buck due to procedural generated maps to explore. Graphics are rather simple but endearing. Would be a great introduction for newcomers to the genre.

Crowntakers: Undead Undertakings DLC Icon
More stuff.
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

If you've played the base game and just want a little more, this DLC's got you covered. It's not a whole lot but for the asking price that's not to be expected.

Shoppe Keep Icon
Trumped by sequel
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

The game was okay upon release, not great, and although it differs in many ways I'd still prefer to play Recettear for the umpteenth time for my shopkeeping fix. However, the sequel renders this obsolete.

Out There: Omega Edition Icon
A fun time waster
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

While some aspects definitely have that "mobile port" feel, it's still a fun little game with some roguelike mixed with resource management. The art style is great, procedurally generated galaxy makes for plenty of replayability, and the story is actually somewhat interesting to follow.

Crusader Kings II: Conclave Content Pack Icon
Cosmetics only
by diji, Australia - Oct 20th 2018

What more can I say? You know what you're getting with these content packs. Definitely recommend picking up only on sale if portraits and units are an important aspect of CKII to you. If not, you can easily skip this (and other packs of this nature) without missing much.

PixelJunk Monsters Icon
Too simplistic
by T'hain Esh Kelch, Denmark - Oct 20th 2018

A slightly different take on your normal tower defense - You control a being that runs around the map and builds the towers, and collects gold after each monster that dies.

Graphically, it looks like something hand drawn by a child, mixed in with CGI coins whenever a monster dies. It has cutesy look overall, but the simplistic drawings and extremely simple animations are not very interesting. The music is also very simple, repeating, and gets boring very quickly. Explanative popups come up all over the screen, which is quite annoying. To start a map, you have use your action button, instead of the logical approach, which is clicking with the mouse.

Gameplay wise, I don't think it adds much to have a hero run around the map. If I was 10, I might think this was a better game, since I would likely be more challenged. Often you can't see the coins you have to collect, so you have to run around in huge areas of each map constantly. The monsters are the same on each map, and not very imaginative. Not many towers to select from, and very generic at that. Upgrades for the towers are not explained at all, so you don't know what you get for upgrading them.

Overall, not very interesting and too simplistic in its presentation. Good for young people or those that doesn't want a complex game.

Omerta: The Japanese Incentive DLC Icon
Good but not as good
by Sixth Praetorian, Switzerland - Oct 17th 2018

The game is nice and quite atmospheric but the battle gameplay is very repetitive and loses strongly to the Xcom battles.
