It was released for $6 on GOG when they finally managed to untangle the legal mess. Night Dive has been really good at untangling tricky legal situations and releasing the games at reasonable prices.

The 3rd one is worth getting. You only want the main game, not forsaken gods (which is a standalone expansion), and you'll need to fan-patch it, but once that's done, it's actually quite good, though…

Bundles bundles and more bundles. After a while you end up with a lot of games. Also, it's not quite 1600, the way steam counts games, it also considers all free games that I've tried to be "owned",…

Fallout is a single character game though. The issue I personally have with turnbased is when you have a party, and you just want certain characters to keep attacking, like in say the Goldbox games,…

The important bit to me is that you don't have to give constant orders to your party when all you want them to do is attack. I find combat tedious when I just hit the the same key over and over again…

For me, real time with pause is pretty much the best of two worlds (for party-based games):
With pure real time, you can't really take your time, plan and give detailed orders to the party, and…

Indeed. While 30 fps is fully playable, playing at a higher framerate does impact the gameplay in a good way. While I don't think anyone really cares if Europa Universalis is played at 30 or 60 fps,…
