Speaking of the games on sale there, how is Vampire the Masquerade - Redemption? I got Bloodlines during a steam sale and like it, but I dunno about this one.

Redemption is a solidly mediocre game I mostly enjoyed when I was young and stupid. I have no idea how it's withstood the passage of time, but it's no Bloodlines, that's for sure.

I think Accent Core is the modern game but I played a lot of Guilty Gear X2 #Remix on the Xbox and it's pretty solid.

Serious grab some of these before the sale ends.
less than a day left on the "multiplayer" games and over a day left on all the old dnd titles.

edit: I had no idea an Eberron game was made.

As ever, I'm loving every moment of Dungeon Keeper. I haven't yet hit one of the levels that people generally accept as being hard - I think that's next level or the one after (where hero squads drop in every few minutes and the trick to success is basically "import a high-level vampire or reaper from the previous level").

I kind of wish they'd just fixed a couple of bugs (the bit where audio files for before-and-after conquering don't actually match because they're in the wrong order, a couple of the hidden levels having problems, one hidden level being inaccessible, and the "cursor goes Marxist and veers to the left" one that sometimes crops up). But even so, it's loads of fun.

I also grabbed Neverwinter Nights (+expansions) for all of a fiver. I had loads of fun with that back in 2002-ish, but... what with that being over ten years ago, my memory of it doesn't match up to what it is. I seriously can't remember what the plot was originally about, other than "something something, priests of... Helm? ...traitors are causing the plague, something Aribeth turns evil, something something Sarrukh".

And I grabbed the PRC immediately, which means there are some bugs that... might be from the PRC and might be from NWN and I'll never know. On the other hand, running about with a Dread Necromancer or Warlock is loads of fun (and that's before you use races that grant +8 to your casting stat and grant SoD effects on their own).

I knew a guy who was part of a team that was trying to make a wholesale revamp of NWN using ir's mods. New races, classes, better spriting and npc behavior.

NWN's moid community was some serious stuff back in the day.

Grabbed Sacred Gold, as I had fond memories.

My memories were lies, implanted by aboleths.

And now, between all the bugs, glitches and general badness, I've uninstalled everything from GoG. Back to not playing games!

So I am impatient and impulsive, but I don't stay pissed off at (most) things for very long. Reinstalled Sacred, and well...
Pros:
-The graphics for the player character are quite good, especially if you don't zoom out to maximum view
-Levels mean something: 1-2 levels is the difference between "Shit, heal, heal!" battles that you just scrape through and "HAHAHA LEAP ONTO MY SWORD WHILE YOU CAN!"
-The Combo system works well enough to be really simple and quick to use, while not actually being stupidly powerful
-So many optional quests. So so many. I love that kind of "interfere in everyone's lives"
-Some powers are really fun to use (Seraphim: LAZERZ, Circle of Swords, Bee Eff Gee. Daemon: Black Tentacles)
Cons:
-You are going to zoom all the way out because seriously, you want to see as much area as you can
-Levelling, while strong, isn't interesting. You just raise some numbers
-Everything that isn't your character doesn't look so good
-Yeah, there are some bugs with some quests
-No way of knowing where "quests I have yet to start" are, so you have to break into every single house and scour the area
-If you go to "Save Game" and then double-click on a save slot, it loads it instead of saving
-Roaming the land takes ages. Movement is kind of slow, horsies don't speed you up that much (and slow you down insofar as fighting and item-grabbing go), and the portals are few and far between.

I'll keep going. I'll reinstall NWN at some point, but I'll start with just the Diamond pack, then try to do necessary patching to reduce graphical glitches and such, and then it will be PRC time. With saving every two minutes if need be.

Grabbed Dungeon Keeper 2. Gameplay-wise it's superior, but by introducing low-grade polygon critters, they've made it worse to look at by far, and it lacks some of the charm of the previous one. But still fun, so w/e.

Up to chapter 2 of NWN now, and I remember more from the first playthrough all those years ago. Also, I think the Touch Attack mechanics are fucked up, it appears to still use their Armour Bonus and everything.

Anyway, a few games I'm kind of interested in, I'd like any Den input:
-Temple of Elemental Evil: D&D game, based on 3E to some extent, control a party like in Baldur's Gate. Any good? Customisable? Fun?
-Seventh Legion: Team Red vs Team Blue RTS with infantry, mounted infantry, tanks and mechwarriors that look like they stepped straight out of 40k. It looks like it could be fun for a bit, is it worth the six dollars?

Very good. It's turn-based and very faithful to 3.5 core rules, so you make your own party of five and murderize things. There's a mod pack out there that adds a bunch of content and removes some caps. But it can get tedious as fuck walking around some of the maps (like the fucking towns), because they are big and full of people and all of them have fetchquests for you, so you might very well be pushed to ragequit in basically the first map they drop you in after the introduction.

I owned this game many years ago and it's not really worth 6 dollars. It does a couple of cool things like not having to gather resources, and the squad infiltration missions. But then there is the card system, every so often you get a card that will either give a bonus (like invisibility or phantom troop) or a penalty (slower firing and movement) they are given at random for many mission and when they are not the mission is more like puzzle with some really tight timing. Also you will need the manual to figure out exactly what the card does since there is no in-game information about the card. Also you can still get this game from Abandonia, the abandon ware site.
