It's not a bad game. I actually thought the first one was better than the second one, but I seem to be alone in that. Yeah, it's very simple and repetitive, but so are most action RPGs.

Definitely alone . I know I thought the second one was much better in terms of offering some real RPG stuff and engaging gameplay and characters.

(Fair enough. If you managed to get some enjoyment out of it, more power to you.)

Ultima 5 Lazarus and Ultima 6 Project are DS 1 mods and thus work only with DS 1, not 2 or 3. I haven't tried them with a Steam version (I have a retail version), but I haven't heard anything saying they wouldn't work with the Steam version of DS 1. Both are excellent remakes of their respective games and are well worth a playthrough. There are many worse ways to spend 2 Buckazoids than this.

Ultima 5 Lazarus: http://www.u5lazarus.com/
Ultima 6 Project: http://u6project.com/

About DS 1 itself — IMO, it is a bland action RPG. I never got very far into it before becoming thoroughly bored and quitting. The Ultima remakes are the reason to buy DS 1, period.

DS1 made me think : "I'm glad that this game is finally over !"

And THEN I found that the MP part was an completely different game ! Different buildings and such …

Paradox is apparently the next Humble Bundle sale. The e-mail from Paradox doesn't seem to say what games will be up though.

Just pure speculation based off the photo:
Warlock
(Something with a guy on a rope with a gun)
War of the Roses
Magicka
Dungeon Land


Amazon has a massive sale going too. Some of the better deals are listed here:

Almost considered XCOM: Enemy Unknown + DLC for $10,

but I think I will wait until they clarify the cost of the expansion, and whether it includes the base game or not…

EDIT: Wow! that Command and Conquer deal looks impressive.

17 Command and Conquer Games for $9

Recommended?

EDIT 2: Apparently looks like Origin codes and associated douchbaggery.

Has anyone linked their Amazon account to Origin? Sounds like a recipe for disaster,

That's an awesome deal for XCOM. I've seen it for $10 before, but never with the DLC included.

I'm not sure what you mean by "liked". I do like Amazon, but you couldn't pay me to install the Origin platform on my pc. Tried that once, had it off 15 minutes later, what a mess. So, I guess I like Amazon, but not Origin.

Well here is the Paradox Humble Weekly sale

https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly


Pay more than the all-time average of $5.80 to unlock!
I already have all the titles in the collection that I want, so I'll be passing on this. Still a nice deal for those that don't have them.

Heads up on the Paradox Bundle if you pay more than $125 you get all these lovely games.

Unless Amazon buys Origin and Origin gets completely diconnected from EA, then yes, I would link my account.
But as that won't happen, I will never link my amazon acc to Origin.

You just use the codes you get from Amazon in Origin as you would in Steam. As far as I know their isn't a way to link your Origin & Amazon accounts.
