I'm looking for good and cheap (or free) games. Do you know any, besides VtM:B or Skyrim?

As I write this you have 3 hours left to pick up The Witcher 1 & 2 on GOG for a combined cost of less than 5€.

https://www.gog.com/game/the_witcher
https://www.gog.com/game/the_witcher_2

If you don't know GOG, it's sort of like Steam except the client is optional and the games are DRM free. So it's really quite different from Steam.

The Witcher 1 is awful though. The Witcher 2 is awesome if you can forgive the horrible combat.

Total War: Warhammer is an amazing game I'm super into right now but it is the opposite of cheap. Around 150 Reais on steam.

Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning is a nice fantasy single-player RPG. I'm not sure how much it costs but the company that made it went bankrupt so...

Kingdoms and Kingdoms: New Lands are both cheap and great games too.

Nosgoth is a free game where you can play as Vampire and Vampire Hunters fighting one another. Last time I played, it was plenty of fun. I had to stop playing because they upped the graphics a bit and my game started to stutter.

WARFRAME is a free, futuristic shooter / slasher game that looks amazing and runs very smoothly. The midgame gets rather grindy but the gameplay is so much fun that some people don't mind. It is an online game but you can play everything as a single-player game and won't have any problems.

Long Live the Queen is a small game, kinda cheap (only around 10 dollars when I last checked) and fun. Long story short, you play as a Princess in a semi-visual novel game who will become the queen in about 10 Days or so. Your goal in the game? Survive to that point because LOADS of people want to kill you.

You also have skills that you can use that can help you survive, you can change Elodie's mood to help those skills grow.

I know what I'm talking about sounds really frilly but Draggy, Kara and I liked it.

Yes Draggy and Kara, I am dragging you both into this. Very Happy

Don't forget Jad. He played it too. And Elodie will become queen over the course of weeks, not days.

But yes, the game was fun. I was skeptical about the pink anime princess thing at first, but it wasn't really an issue once I got into the game. At first I was trying just to survive. Then once I managed that, I wanted to find all possible deaths. And then I played to see all possible outcomes. My favourite was the playthrough in which I had Elodie blow the invaders up with magic, sacrifice her cousin to pacify the kraken, and blast rioting peasants with fireballs. She then went on to have a long and prosperous tyrannical reign.


The game isn't perfect because most of the problems you face are sort of arbitrary and having the right skills to deal with them requires either luck or having foreknowledge from a failed previous run.

Also, Total Biscuit got roped into playing this by his wife.

With the original Baali sponsoring a game about a young girl becoming a grown woman, what other endorsement could you need?

It's pronounced "Salubri". Say it with me "Sal-uuu-briiii". And Elodie can be a STRONG DITZY POWERFUL AS FUCK MAGE WHO DON'T NEED NO MAN.

That's how I finished the game. She was a powerful mage but the country was facing bandit raids and economic problems for years afterwards. =w="

So anyone has other ideas of good games to play? I'm saving up for Dark Souls 3 (and waiting for when I finish college, ofc)

Well, at 60 hours you've barely begun to play. It's perfectly normal not to know what you're doing.

I'm still mostly playing CK2, with a bit of Morrowind on the side. I expect I'll do another playthrough of Witcher 2 sometime in July.

Been playing Total Warhammer, Warhammer 40k: Eternal Crusade, Dungeons 2 and Aragami lately. Also finished E.Y.E. Divine Cybermancy and Deus Ex: Mankind Divided a while ago. And that's about what I've been up to.

TW = Is good if your computer can run it.
40k:EC = Hit-or-miss; too much P2W and Space Marine favoritism for me to recommend outright.
Dungeons 2 = Was alright for what it was, but haven't had much more to do after the campaign. 27 hours played total. Take it for what you will.
Aragami = Good fun stealth game, wish you could actually fight but oh well.
Divine Cybermancy = Weird as fuck, still donno what the hell is going on in the game. Enjoyed it plenty though, especially the atmosphere.
Deus Ex = Is good yeah. Ending could've been better and I wish the DLC missions were in the main game rather than a side menu, but the game proper is worth the Deus Ex name.

Are we speaking about you? Cool

Anyway,
'Guild of Dungeoneering' is a very frustrating game,
'Mashed' is excellent racing game with awesome multiplayer, also I don't know if I ever bought it, but were we able to get the gang together and get it running over the webz and get the mumble going so I can insult you, I'd be willing to put in a few hours.
Also,
'Gems of War' Laughing and
'FTL¨- good luck.

Oh, that brings back happy memories from when I used to play the first Rome: Total War with the good folks from the RTW Heaven forum. That was still in the days of dial-up internet. Well, at least for me it was. Very Happy

For me it was Starcraft. We played two on two: I was busy building my second base, while my friend casually rolled over our enemies.

So recently I've started playing Vampyr. We've talked about this game here a bit but I dunno which thread.

The game combat resembles a lot The Witcher. you mostly wait for the oponent to strike, evade and counterattack. You have acess to potions and "spells" (vampire abilities) that can cause more damage or do different things like stun.

You have three resources: Health, Vigor and Blood. Vigor is used to attack and evade, and Blood is used to fuel your supenatural powers. There is aggravated damage like in Vampire the Masquerade.

Like vanilla Bloodlines, you don't lose blood overtime and also don't really -need- blood. It's a glorified mana bar, basically. Unlike vanilla bloodlines, there isn't neutral unnamed npcs on the map: you can only feed by choosing a named npc, rats which seems kinda rare or in combat, against an enemy.

Named NPCs are on Districts. Districts have a health level and a number of npcs in it. You can do your job as a doctor and help people on the district, increasing it's health level. Feeding on NPCs on the district reduces it's health. But if you don't need to feed why would you feed? Because it gives a lot of xp.

To feed on an NPC, you need to have a certain Bewitch level. It seems to be correlated to your progress in the main quest, as a way to protect (stupid) players from themselves. The more base xp an npc gives, the higher the bewitch level needed. Two other things affect xp gained this way: district health level and "clues", meaning how much of the person's history and personality you know. Also, feeding on a NPC kills them. You can't "drink a bit" and them leave them there still alive like in bloodlines.

Most NPCS are also related to one or two side quests, it seems. The system looks good so far because it forces you to make choices: do I feed now or do I wait to increase the district health level, get clues and complete the npcs side quests before I feed? And by making you do their sidequests and discover about them, you may become emotionally attached, making the decision to feed harder.

One thing that I think will be a problem down the road is enemy variety.

So basically there is a lot of strings attached and consequences to your actions... I start to like this game.

Vampyr is a mixed bag to me. In writing moment I'm drowsy as hell, but I found there was a bit much railroading in the main quests and the writing lacked behind some when they want the story to go in a certain direction (it shines the most in sidequests where it can go either way). The worst part was the forced romance, but they did have a proper sound effect in the game from female Skals who go "BLUUUUEEEEERGH" that I could use whenever it became relevant.

Combat is serviceable imo. NPC work is grand, lots of variation and dialogue to be had and what you do with them can have legit consequences for other NPCs, that's where the game shines the most. Generic moons like Guard of Priwen mobs and Skals however are completely faceless and expendable and are free to murder away even on pacifist runs without counting against you, and may actually be required to get clues in some cases.

The downside with the clue system is that while you search for clues and talk with people, you have to pick the right dialogue option to get it; if you pick the wrong then tough shit, you lose the ability to continue pursuing that conversation. This combined with the auto-save system means you have to roll with it or restart the game. Game could use some better tooltips sometimes I found.

Spoiler:
 

Atmosphere is a 10/10 for me, on the same level as NPC bit and I've got 23 hours in it after one walkthrough, so overall I think it's a worthwhile game to play in and of itself. I would however recommend waiting for a sale, I don't think it's worth 50 bucks. I'd go 20-25 myself (paid 32 on a -25% sale). Take it for what you will.
