FEAR (and the expansions) is excellent, a prime example of the supremacy of the early-mid 2000s fps genre. FEAR 2 is a decent game, better than a lot of modern FPS, but not on the same level as originals. Definitely worth playing through FEAR2 all the same, solid game.

The weird thing is, while they're calling it a "Star Trek Day" sale, everything Activision sells at GOG is on sale 30% off or more. That said, these should not be missed:

As well as Battlestar Galactica Deadlock:

And then there's this. If you're into old school JRPG's, you might enjoy this one.

Humble also has now the "Starlight Bundle" with tons of Star Wars games in it.
The Pinball tables alone are worth the price. :eek: I do not own any of the games, so that's a no brainer purchase.



Guess German shoppers have to use a VPN to get the "Aliens vs. Predator Collection". Doesn't show up on the Humble page. :mad:

Elite Force and Elite Force II are some REALLY old games. I'm not even sure if all the voice acting was done by the TNG cast in Elite Force II except for Ensign Barkley. Elite Force II did have an interesting level where you go out on the hull of the Enterprise E (I think, whatever Enterprise replaced the one in TNG). Elite Force II was the better game with better graphics.

And? Excellent is always excellent regardless of age. Command & Conquer Tiberian Sun is over 20 years old and it is STILL one of the very best RTS games ever made, has aged very well and still plays perfectly. The Elite Force games are similarly so. Elite Force 1 more than 2, but still.

Not sure what you are trying to say, but I think your point isn't much of one. No offense..

I don't remember a single map/level from Elite Force, although it must have had some Borg levels. Do you? Elite Force II had at least two memorable levels (the external hull of the Enterprise-E) and some sort of research facility overrun by hostile aliens (which reminded me a lot of an Unreal 2 level/map). I recommend Elite Force II over Elite Force I. No offense intended on my part either.

Hell yeah! That game was great fun. I got my but kicked by the Borg more times than I care to count.

No worries, everyone has their personal preferences based on experiences. It's all good.

What I suspected. Dam German Nanny State. :rolleyes: For ZeGerman's, if you don't wanna get cheated out of the game, do the following:

use a VPN, connect to any other EU country, open the website, log in, go to settings, change location to your "new" location, buy the bundle.
Now you will get all 17 games & not only 16. Game can be activated in Steam. Cheers.

Ace Combat 7 is $9 on Steam. I am considering it... any thoughts on this? Is it a good deal or should I wait to see if it goes lower in winter sale?

Word of warning on that game, the in game volume controls do not save after the game exits and it very easy to accidental reset the game progress. You get ONE save, which is done automatically as you go.

Serious Sam Bundle is live on HumbleBundle. :toast: A very good deal if you're not already owning the newer more expensive titles!
Dam, Humble is really rolling out some great bundles lately. They're making me poor.

Thanks, good to know. :) Did some research and found the following: How to force the game to save
Guess their autosave is a bit tricky. But I didn't find a lot about it, so it could be that it's already patched out.

That experience is similar to mine. It is a bit tricky. I agree with that OP("WHY THE F NOT?").
But I didn't find a lot about it, so it could be that it's already patched out.
I don't think so. I've got the current version and this is when the problem took place.

So allow me to clarify my above caution. If you're going to sit down with the game, make sure you're ready and willing to play through to the end before starting anything else.
