It never goes that far. Late era just means that you have people running around with crossbows and/or heavy armour. So as far as technology goes, it reaches the point just before gunpowder weapons started to appear on the battlefield. Early era can be compared to roughly classical Greece (a few nations have discovered how to properly work metals, but most are stuck with relatively simple bronze equipment or similar)

$13 bucks for all that, a really great deal. I'd pay that and more for Supreme Commander if I didn't already own it.

All games are great. I played a lot of Forged Alliance skirmishes back in the day (strategy was my favourite genre then).

Not that it matters, it says list price $220.31 but the individual total price is $193.58. Please help me sleep and tell me what the difference is ? ;-)

Sure. Buy 8 ones from the top. Or some of them as all are good. While good and worth buying, IMO neither of those is a masterpiece, so don't expect you'll be absolutely amazed with something. No, the remake with better gfx is also not a masterpiece, sorry - I'm still waiting for Manny Calavera remake, maybe they do that one right.

Never bothered with the rest 8 (yes shame on me I don't want to buy Sam&Max) so can't tell about those.

For any other disciples of Gabe - this Might and Magic seems to be Uplay only. So if you want it in your steam library you need to buy elsewhere.

Singleplayer doesnt sound like much:

"For those who think to buy

This game is really very stylish and very decent at the start. It has a Warhammer 40k style, great controls, solid and pleasing shooting, a variety of skills and character building. The first mission branch (city) is very pleasing to play.

Hovever, starting with the second mission branch, the game suddenly becomes ATROCIOUS.

It looks like the devs just decided "fek it all" and drank a lot of champagne and vodka and started doing a horrid abomination of a game with infinite respawn of monsters who attack you non-stop every second (literally, no exagerration) and make the things worse and worse all the time, and then the third mission branch is a huge empty space made of empty corridors with guess who? Right, the same infinite respawning enemies: you kill 3, and other 3 are already on their place ALL THE TIME, without any possibility to avoid them, and the more they hurt you, the more of them comes.

TL;DR: buy this game at the sale price, play the missions in the first city, after finishing them immediately delete."

I liked E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy when I played it a while ago, it is unique and very atmospheric. Respwning (not everywhere by the way), is part of the game design like in Dark Souls.

It is not the best game in the market ofcourse, but it is quite an achievement for an indie studio. It has been receiving patches and updates for a number of years now.

It is difficult to describe and you can always try the demo before buying.

You almost had me sold there, had it not been for the atrocious part!

I have to agree with zakhal from when I played E.Y.E: Divine Cybermancy.

The story falls apart fast after the first mission. It had me shaking my head wondering what to do now, and ended with a WTF.

I remember the game had some DLC. So if your looking for good MP then I agree by all means buy the game. For that price it's more than worth it.

If I do play one though, I tend to like darker games with a post-apocalyptic or dark fantasy art style.

Fwiw, I purchased Chains of Satinav, Memoria, A New Beginning-Final Cut, and The Whispered World.

That's odd. I've purchased from Get Games before. Do you live in the US?

Try Green Man Gaming. They currently have a 25% off voucher for digital purchases.

Same here although I don't play them often as I buy them for my wife.

That's a sound advice. Again its UPlay code and/or capsule download.
