hmm.. Think I'll grab zeno slash even though I dont have time to play it for the next 40 years. But always wanted to complete it. And its cheap lololo


I should add, you should probably grab Space Rangers 2 Reboot. Its only $5 and very cool.

I got Left 4 Dead 2 for my son. Already had Zeno Clash or I'd have jumped on it.

In bad news, The Witcher's price is now $13. Congrats to whoever got it for the $6 price.

Just noticed another game I'll be gleefully grabbing. Avencast: Rise of the Mage, going for $2.49 special. Some good reviews, looks like a really good diablo style clone from a small dev. Totally grabbing.

Theres a Sherlock Holmes adventure game collection too for $27.50 with 6 titles in it. I've played about 4 of them, they're great adventure games. And for that price for 6, if you love adventure games you should seriously grab this.

Too many good games discounted lol. The Guild 2 for $7.50. And Tropico 3 for $7 I think it was. Very cool stuff.

The amount of awesome games for great prices is so flooded I'm actually rejecting some things I want just in case I find something I want more. These cheap games are going to make me poor.

Got around to trying Buccaneer today!



Buccaneer: The Pursuit of Infamy is all about the ship-portion of being a pirate. From your base, you select a map and then choose missions to go on. These include things like sinking ships, capturing cargo, charting islands, ramming fishing boats, destroying towns, etc. The ship combat is all about getting beside another ship and plugging away, or finding a good angle to hit them while sailing around them. It's different from most games, but appropriate. The controls are super simple, too. WASD for steering, Space Bar for anchor, and Mouse 1 & 2 for firing the cannons on either side of the ship.

Between missions you can upgrade your ship, buy new ships, supplies, etc.. The story is told by text screens before and after missions, but the game doesn't focus too heavily on it. It's really all about the combat. There's also co-op and versus multiplayer, and Steam Achievements. The graphics are simple but lovely, with dolphins and fish beneath the beautiful water and seagulls in the sky.

If you like pirates, it's definitely a good buy for $2.50. And there's a demo!
