WRC 9 is 50% off at Epic and WRC 8 is 80% off. Are they worth a go?

homeworld remastered collection on steam for $3.74. i decided to grab that, only game i am getting during the steam winter sale. honestly think I will enjoy this a lot, I never tried it before or this genre in general. the video looked fun to me.


also, shoutout to @WhiteNoise for his many many giveaways on tpu (since this is also a generalized giveaway thread, just giving credit where credit is due as he has done more high valued giveaways than anyone else on this site), I won God of War steam preorder in his most recent giveaway. going to be a lot of fun in 3 weeks when it comes out.

I enjoyed it very much. If you're into Space-based RTS games you will like. The menu and command system takes some getting used to. It's not C&C/Starcraft like, but once you understand it you be cruising along.

Pulled the trigger today on the following:

[1,00€] Friday the 13th: The Game from the Dead of Winter Bundle on HumbleBundle
[1,00€] Leisure Suit Larry - Wet Dreams Don't Dry from the New Year Bundle on Fanatical
[0,34€ +0,38€ payment fees] Star Wars: Jedi Fallen Order from Kinguin

Got a few weeks ago already STAR WARS™: Squadrons for [0,69€] from CDKeys. Dirt cheap, looked like a scam, but the key was fine.
Now again, all fine. Noticed now in the product description "Amazon Prime Gaming Origin CD Key" and "The code must be redeemed by February 7th, 2022".
So my hot guess is that a ton of the keys given away in the Amazon Prime Gaming program end up on the key reseller market.

So I will for sure have an eye out in the future on what get's given away from Amazon. :cool:

A friend who lives in Alabama recommended this yet to be released politics game to me because she knows I'm a gamer. If it's FPS, I'm in!

To go even more off topic, there was an RTS in the early 2000s (think C&C clone) that had newspapers and public opinion as an element. Depending on your side the public (and maybe the government you represented?) reacted differently to different actions. If you killed a bunch of civilians or destroyed civilian buildings you were lambasted for it. I don't remember how or if you were punished, because the game sucked so hard. I found it in a €1 bargain bin and bought it solely because the premise sounded interesting. But yeah it was really bad. I can't remember the name of it either, which is frustrating because I've wanted to play it again to see if it was as bad as I remember. I still think the premise is interesting. An RTS game actually set in the modern world, with politics, celebrities, influencers, protestors... It would be interesting.

EDIT: Hey found it, it's Conflict Zone.

The resource model in Conflict Zone is interesting and unique. One of your resources is "popularity." It determines what level of units and technology you possess at any given moment. It's supposed to represent the trust that your leaders have in you, so a higher popularity means that they'll let you have bombers and submarines. The media directly influences your popularity by observing the actions you make in the game.

Popularity is the biggest differentiating factor between the ICP and GHOST. The ICP is able to increase popularity to high levels quickly simply by rescuing civilians and taking them to a refugee camp in their base. The downside to this is that the ICP also loses popularity quite easily. First, people generally don't like long wars, so the ICP's popularity slowly decreases over time. Next, if your forces suffer humiliating losses, the people back home aren't going to like you. Lastly, lots of civilian deaths at your hand will bring down your popularity big-time. A few civilian deaths are acceptable, though. But you're still going to have to avoid many battles near towns, because explosives have area-effect damage that can cause civilian casualties easily. And town buildings resupply civilians, so you don't want those destroyed.

"For those of a certain age, think SimCity meets The Oregon Trail — with a little Grand Theft Auto thrown in." Mowing down politicians?
Anyway, the man behind this game is a journalist
There was another game in the 80s called President Elect, but it kind of faded away. This one looks promising though, even though I know little about American politics, except for what I read and watch on TV.

That took long enough! I thought a game like that would have been made a long time ago.

GOG themselves are joining the effort;
TWOM-GOG.jpg

Following 11 bit studios decision to donate all profits from the sales of This War Of Mine and all its DLCs, we have decided to support their action. For the next week, till March 3rd at 7 PM UTC, we will be donating all profits from our shares of the sale to the Ukrainian Red Cross as well.
I'm chipping in, even though it's not my kind of game.

EDIT:
Installed it and am playing through the first little bit. I've got to say, not disappointed. The storyline is something good so far. $5 well spent and to a good cause!
