    State of Decay is a great title, one of the best zombie games out there IMO. The only thing is that once you've done the game it's very hard to go back and replay it.

    For 4 quid I don't mind. Have you tried the dlc?


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,595 ✭✭✭✭ degrassinoel


    I haven't played the dlc, but the game itself is pretty good, glitchy and buggy in parts but it grows on you despite it's minor failings.

    Bleh. Someone posted the Steam Summer Sale thread in Games. You can follow the mayhem there.

    I have the Breakdown DLC but not Lifeline.

    Breakdown essentially allows infinite mode, so it's good if you're into sandboxing without too much restriction of the story (you can start with your own character). When you do use up all resources on the map you can "restart" the map by putting your survivors on a bus and starting anew, albeit on the same map again.

    The DLC's add replayability but when it comes down to it, once you establish the best base possible in the game there isn't much else to do after it.

    That's the lowest price I've seen this game for. :)

    Also Age of Empires II HD Edition @ €4 is also a good deal.

    What's the difference between the normal version and this redux version?

    What's the difference between the normal version and this redux version?

    Notes from the metro wiki, first place I found that list the changes.

    Metro 2033:

    All-new lighting engine.
    Lower end PCs perform better.
    Cinematics have been redone and are now presented in first-person perspective.
    Features day and night cycles.
    More detail to levels and will boast greater visual fidelity.
    Some levels have been expanded such as: the Dead City section is now a single level.
    60fps on next-gen consoles.
    Borrows a few gameplay elements for Metro: Last Light, such as adding the option to wipe your mask clean as well as combat improvements - like stealth takedowns and weapon customization
    Khan's character model will be updated to the version from Last Light - presumably, other returning characters, like Miller will also change.
    Metro 2033 might gain some of new weapons from Metro Last Light

    Metro: Last Light:

    Graphical upgrades
    Improved gameplay
    Includes all Last Light downloadable content.
    Players will be able to check their watch and inventory.

    Both Games:

    Supports Ranger Mode
    Each title can be played in one of two difficulty modes: Survival or Spartan. Survival is modeled after Metro 2033, having more limited supplies and ammunition, slower reload speeds and tougher enemy AI. Spartan makes the game more action- oriented and gives players more resources, in the style of Metro: Last Light.

    Maybe a good time to play through both games. Have the first already but never played it.


  • Registered Users Posts: 22,929 ✭✭✭✭ ShadowHearth


    For anyone who have not played those games - go pick it up. It's savage game. Should be a must buy for next gen consoles too.

    Nah, just pointing out steam isn't a bargain even usually when its half price as most PC gamers are aware of.

    Interesting post there Nolars.

    I waited for your response before making a decision on buying the game in case you actually had anything better than 14.99

    Now that you don't i can feel pretty awesome about saving 50% on a game i've had in my wishlist since last year.

    So umm, thanks?

    Someone posted about isthereanydeal.com in the general games bargain thread. I started using it a few weeks ago and it's very handy for checking the various sites and lowest previous price. Will also notify you when a game from your wishlist is on sale. Pretty hand!

  • Registered Users Posts: 3,031 ✭✭✭ Cravez


    I generally buy from Kinguin, G2A, Amazon etc before I buy from Steam. Steam are great for their sales (which only happen about 3-4 times per year) but other than that their prices are quite high compared to other distributors.
