I'm probably going to pass. Sure, I could buy a pile of games...that I would never, ever get around to playing. Not much point to that, really.

Who the Honk are you?  Talking like that.  It is like Mount Everest or Pam Anderson.  You wait in line and then just do it because they are there.

Silent Storm 2
Witcher 2
Spycraft the Great Game

Bought them.  Another brick in the wall of games I don't have time to play.
But at least it was less than $14 total.

You didn't have FTL yet?  I'm shocked!

I know. Me too.  There was something that just made me hesitate. I think the feeling that it would get repetitive.

Anyone have comments about Signal Ops?  The artwork looks great!

I may purchase Caesar III for some nostalgic fun...or maybe B-17?  Or perhaps Comanche Vs Hokum?

I would suggest Comanche vs Hokum + Apache vs Havoc and then download the community mod http://eechcentral.simhq.com/index.php?title=Main_Page


B-17 is very good game, however the gunner controls are very awkward, but still a good game and nothing out there like it.

Oh man am I glad I clicked on this thread.  There are several games you guys mentioned that I forgot about or didn't even know were on there.

Clive Barker's Undying is a sure bet- that's a very scary game but I can't get it to run from CD anymore.

And I forgot about that Ancient Battles collection- gotta grab that too...stat!

So far I bought Panzer Elite, Gothic 2 and some other Gothic game, Gothic complete or something like that.

Sweet!  So I got Undying and Great Battles for a cool 6 clams total and I'm installing now!  W00t!   ;D

 ;D   HA! Nope, I got off that train. No more stocking up on things I might never play.

I'm with you, Arctic.  As tempting as this sale is, I really don't need any more games.  I already have enough that I've barely touched that would last until the end of my life.

I'm limiting my purchases to games that I am really, REALLY big on.

Did you ever get the Zeus & Poseidon set from GOG?  It's the last of the series from which Caesar III came, set in classical Greece of course.  I was impressed with how far they took the 2D city builder with that one... and there's even a hi-res & widescreen mod out there for it.
