I just wish they'd offer some of the older D&D titles.

I think there's a way to get IWD1 on 3.0 or 3.5 with IWD2

No. But in a no story to follow game, in a game you're promised to write a story of your own - varieties matter. Everything else is just a form of grinding.

Legend of Grimrock's on sale on Steam. I never could get into it; the balance just felt off, and the spiders. Oy, the spiders!

Horrible things. But there's much worse further down.

That's ok, they're safely hidden behind the spiders.

Those damn spiders were awful. I think I stopped playing around that time.

Gamersgate has all the Amanita titles, like Samorost, Machinarium, etc. On sale for dirt cheap. They're fun little games

Actually I just got by the spiders. Nasty so & so's. Now I go downstairs, get locked in a room with two herders, and get blown away. If I dance around them a lot, I get blown away slower.

Running back and forth along the length of the room while dodging and ranged attacks is the key in that room.

I think my ranged attacks at that point were still limited to rocks and a couple of throwing knives.

I really wanted to like that game, but it went too much for the just plain masochistic luck-based difficulty instead of, you know, fun. Of course, I never got into the Dungeon Master: Chaos Strikes back style game.

Europa Universalis 3 Chronicles (with all the expansions) FREE at Gamefly http://www.gamefly.com/Download-Euro…III-Chronicles .

Only the best strategy game ever ever ever ever. Probably my favorite game of all time (and I am an RPG guy).

Not an RPG, but Children of the Nile's just been added to GoG. If you've not played it, get it now. It's the best of the ancient city builders by a long shot. No weird abstract influence zones, no walker madness. Each person does their thing, gathering food, going to temples, etc.

Why are you still here? Go, buy buy buy!

Um… Does anyone know anything about this game:
http://www.gamersgate.com/DD-HOLYAVA…ns-of-the-dead

It looks… well… ugly.
But dunno, did you read any (p)review in some magazine or something, is it worth a shot?

Its like Grotesque, which the game is an obvious spin-off to. I personally liked Grotesque, it was light fantasy strategy with some rpg elements and parody thrown in. You may want to check reviews for grotesque its prolly identical.

I think fire magic ranged attacks worked great. There is also a bow (EDIT: and sling) you can get by then, I'm pretty sure.

I found the first Grotesque game to be too shallow to really be worth playing, and the humor was not all that great (at least it did not work at all for me).
This one is a bit more of a CRPG though, is it not? I've not played it, only basing it on what I've gathered from reading scattered comments on it.

German mag "Gamestar" 5/2013 comes with "Sternenschweif", the second of the "Realms Of Arcania" games (German : The NLT Trilogy).
It's on 1 DVD, don't know how they handle the audio tracks, haven't installed it yet.
