    Default Pillars of Eternity (for RPG fans)

    It's hot on steam and elsewhere now. Obsidian crowdfunded this game and it's a classig party RPG a la Neverwinter nights, Baldur's gate... It has very good mood, lots of text and storytelling, dialogue. If anyone here fancies RPGs might, you want to check it out.

    Pausable combat and formations remind me of Myth

    Is it a MMORPG or single player campaign? I'm more into the latter if the story is right (like NWN2 and MOTB, last one was really good).

    Single player only!

    There is also a DRM free copy floating around, so you can try before buying it.

    I like Steam. You can download games to every computer you own. You can play offline (but need to log on first to confirm before going offline). You can also share your library with up to 5 friends/family (but only one can play library at a time). After title is no longer AA, price drops to 20 or even below 10 EUR. Recently I saw I game I might fancy for 6 EUR something and I just bought it. Often they have sales and sometimes you can play for free over weekend.

    Wow, those are almost GOG-prices. How long typically before the price drops? I need not have it soon and, well, I am a scrooge when it comes to games for myself. Heck, last game I bought was Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe on my Playbook for, I think, $1.79. Had loads of fun.
