The tutorial area from Hitman is now free. (It's not the complete first episode; the first episode has two areas.)

If you find yourself listing due to the siren song of the Steam Summer Sale, you may find a corrective antidote in the Steam Calculator.

Anyone have thoughts or opinions on Tyranny? Comments are a back-and-forth of decisions actually being railroaded and shallow, or others claiming the original complainer just didn't get what was happening or didn't choose the right dialogue options. Making it hard to determine which ones are the dumb babbies and which ones have legitimate points.

This would be a much easier decision if combat was ever a drawing point in these isometric squad strategy games. What happened to the generation of Dark Alliance, Champions of Norrath and the good Dungeon Sieges? Is the deal interesting combat in a setting that gets boring an hour in, or great world building with a combat system that requires you base your group on minmaxing abilities and not story flavor?

Tyranny is really really good. The only 'problem' with it is its about maybe 20-30 hours long depending on how completionist you are and they kinda expect you to fail a few times before you get through it. Once you make your mistakes and figure out the 'style' of game it is though it is a very good game.

The problem I'm having here is that most of the things you can fuck up are story shit that I don't want to spoil you on. Suffice it to say you have to consider exactly what you are when you start the game and not what you think you might be from playing other games.

Humble Store has a Final Fantasy sale.

There appear to be substantial efforts to de-uglify FF6PC, if that's the sort of thing anybody's interested in checking out. It's fascinating stuff; apparently the PC game is just a wrapper around the GBA ROM, which of course leaves it pretty open to modding.

(The "replace with original sprites" mod is still ongoing, but it looks like there are mods to remove the smeary filter and aspect ratio stretching.)

GOG has a "big deal" sale on. Abe's Oddysee is free and a bunch of games are marked down; I think I'll get Wonder Boy for 20% off.

Outlast free at Humble, but it's in its last 2 hours; sorry about the late notice.

Remember to activate your Steam key after you get it, or it'll expire.
