yet another sales post

It's hard to keep up with them these days.

GOG.com are having a sale on Sci-Fi space Simulators:


All great games, all very cheap. I have a friend who credits Descent for teaching him how to visualise 3D space; he now designs and models 3D effects.

To celebrate free DLC The Passing, Left 4 Dead 2 is 33% cheaper on Steam at 13.39/$20.09 four pack is 40.19/$60.29 Or you can buy the first and second game together for 26.79/$33.49

Also, this:



Call of Duty Modern Warfare is half price at 9.99/$14.99 on steam. It's the game of the year edition.

Trine is still 4.25/$5 on steam.

And Direct2Drive's sale is still on, of course.

EDIT: more!

Zombie Driver is half price on Gamer's Gate - 3.97/$4.97.

King's Bounty Gold (first and second game) is 66% cheaper on Impulse - 11.88/$14.99 BUY IT.

The Painkiller games are 40% off - 8.97/$11.97 on Gamer's Gate. Enjoyably dim, made by the guys who are making Bulletstorm

What the fuck? Living teaches you to visualize 3d space.

I'm assuming he meant 360 degrees of space, instead of the singular plane most of us are used to. Both are still 3D technically, but we mostly think of a flat X/Y plane and don't really consider that we actually exist on an X/Y/Z plane. If that makes any sense.

I think it's because we only HAVE one angle to look from.

... I think it's because it makes you get your head around a 3D maze really fucking quickly, which stretches your brain muscles. And makes you mind-sweat.

Got "The Witcher" on Gamer's Gate.

Decided to replay Dragon's Age as a dwarf. The human quest was kinda flat.

Finished Fable - The Lost Chapters. I dont know why everyone crticizes this game so harshly. It' silly and mindless but extremely fun and lighthearted. I would like more games like this...

Curious about "The Misadventures of MP Winterbottom". Seems Braid re-done in a victorian style (like the one in the deceased Penny Arcade series).

Also, the new Splinter Cell looks like shit.

ADD: Got the new Sam And Max game too, by my other favourite developers, the beloved Telltale. Might be one of the few games i deliberately play ultra slowly to check every single line of dialogue. Amazing, hilarious sc ript as always and it looks striking, with a re-vamped, ultra detailed graphic look that puts non-episodic games to shame.

Started playing Tales of Monkey Island today, sat on my bed across the room using my iPhone as a Touchpad. It was awesome. Played until landing on Flotsam Island, then the ADD got me.
