I feel bad passing on free games. I still do it all the time but I still feel like a tinge a shame when I do, like their game which they poured their blood, sweat, and tears in isn't good enough for me even at no cost. Is a silliness I've never been able to shake.

Well, I bought Space Marine on release and I also happen to have a free copy on PSN which I got for free with the PS Plus offerings. I think I got it as part of a bundle for Steam as well so yeah, I definitely don't need an extra copy.

It's a great game though, I had tons of fun playing it on my own but I wish I could have co-oped the game as well.

No friends = No co-op

I snatch up every last free game you guys point out on Steam and Origin but I just cant motivate myself to sign up for additional services (Humble) to take advantage of their giveaways.

Humble has the least irritating newsletters I've gotten so far.

(And Green Man Gaming has the worst.)

Oh yeah, I keep meaning to eventually getting around to playing that game. TBH, when I backed it I thought I was backing a MechWarrior. :lol:

I think it's 15% off but if you get the coupon from Steam, it's 30% discount :)

Got a 10% coupon for Frozen Synapse 2 for Steam. Bought and redeemed the game on Humble before noticing :p

"Ash of gods" is 30% off. Brilliant underrated tactical rpg.

To the noob, at first glance it looks similar to Banner Saga but it's actully the complete opposite (veterans of tactics genre - such as myself can see these differences right off the bat).

Is it worth the money? Why, yes, yes it is.

Do you make your own character or is it like Banner Saga where they give you different characters that you have to use?

Pre-made characters, 54 playable characters, 12 of them being women but there is also modding tools with a modding community behind the game as well.

Don't feel bad; if you ever worked a corporate job you would know, some sow the blood, sweat and tears but only a few reap the rewards. And those guys are ****.

I'm just so puzzled by this sentence. I mean, it comes across as forced, rather than a game recommendation.

 

Anyways, added to my wishlist, so thanks for the heads up.

When the game first came up (it also had a Kickstarter) there was this minor internet drama about how Ash of Gods looks just like The Banner Saga. Understandably so, considering the artstyle and the setup of the turn based combat looks like taken directly from a Stoic side project. People even believed they might be backing a Banner Saga addon. ;)

 

The rest is #justsonicthings, really.

When the game first came out? I take it you haven't been checking out the forums lately. People are still tricking themselves into thinking that it's a Banner Saga clone, bare in mind that it's only people who have never played the game. It probably started as a cncept of a clone, then sprouted as something far different. This is nothing new in the games industry.

I wish I could say that it's sonic things but it's just the usual gamer community paranoia/drama that we see when a game looks similar on surface, no different from Battlefield being compared to CoD or the like. I should probably recommend that people watch a gameplay video and see just how much the games differ so they can see what I'm talking about in this regard. Fortunately, the review scores also reflect that it is far from a clone as well.

I did a pre alpha test of the game, when it didn't have graphics and you moved letters around a grid.
Devs wanted to test the bare bones concept on people. And they tried it on me because I wrote a negative review on banner Saga.
The game was always inspired by, but from the very start they were working on setting it apart.
