Is it that much at the moment? Yes, I would wait for it to be on Steam-Sale. That's how I got it. Definitely keep it on your list, though - it's worth $20 to me now that I've played it, but I probably wouldn't have gotten it initially for $20 either.

It's DEFINITELY MUCH more difficult on normal (but not unplayable). I prefer easy mode myself, and I definitely use easy mode to unlock different ships and such...but I venture into normal on occasion when I want "the big boy challenge!".

As someone else mentioned in another topic on this forum I believe, Steam is having their summer sale starting today through the 22nd. Lots of pretty decent deals. Anyone have any Steam discounted games to recommend?

Bioshock 1, 2, and Infinite are discounted. Skyrim and the DLCs are discounted right the next shor while. FTL is discounted. XCom Enemy Unknown discounted. The Cave is discounted. Civ 5 is discounted. I'm waiting to see is REUS gets discounted.

In other news im playing Star Trek Online at the moment. I have little tolerance for MMOs these days (played WoW for years, finally came to my senses) but this is actually pretty fun. The way they have split the game into two different, but polished, segments is pretty cool.

Its F2P (and F2download) so if you are into that type of thing give it a shot (and look me up :))

I don't know if it's one that has been discounted or not, but I'll put in another plug for Recettear as being worth looking to see if it has been discounted.

What does it cost?

Does actual role-playing play into it much?

Woodruff (or anyone), are you into 4x games? I pretty much am a sucker for space based games, movies, science, etc. Via Steam's sale, I stumbled across Endless Space (2012 release) plus its new DLC that just came out a few weeks ago, for ~$12. It looks like a strategy game I could get into, so after watching some "Lets Play" youtube videos, I am hopping into it.



Here is a Part One of a Lets Play, showing a little about the game. The detail and variability and replay value looks pretty frickin' sweet.

The core game is free. You pay for optional extras on a microtransaction basis.

Not sure what you mean by your second question but like most MMOs (WoW, Eve, GW2 etc etc) you can RP to your hearts content. There is a pretty linear character progression with the usual specialisation options (do you want to shoot big lazors or do you want to drop awesome mines etc etc).

Most MMOs, in my view, don't handle role-playing much at all. That's my concern. For instance, in WoW, if you roleplay, you don't really advance.

Depends on your definition of role play.

But as with WoW, genuine roleplay (e.g. screaming over ventrilo saying "BEAM ME UP SCOTTY YOU FUCKING USELESS WHORE" as you get reamed by the borg) is purely optional.

There are pretty sweet inbuilt roleplay aspects such as you needing to manage your officers to ensure optimal running of your ship etc (i.e. you roleplay a captian of a starship).

Interesting...I've not seen this one before. I may have to look into it. From that video, it reminds me a lot of Masters of Orion (one of my favorite games, though it is quite old).

I wasn't a fan of endless space. I found it to seem too much like Armada 2625. For what it's worth.

I am playing Rogue Legacy right now. Meth style addiction. My kids are suffering.

Have you played Masters of Orion (or Moo 2), by chance? You fast-posted my edit where I mentioned I thought it sounded like that game.

I've not played Armada 2625.

I dearly love the well-made Rogue-like games (I actually still play the original Rogue from time to time). I briefly looked at the Wiki for this, but it didn't explain things very well...how does the whole "pass on to your kids at death" thing work?
