I played Shadow Tactics, and while it was enjoyable for a few hours, it got boring eventually, and some of the game's mechanics really rubbed me the wrong way. but it's a well-made Desperados clone (not nearly as good as Commandos, though)

I really liked that you can control characters with the analog stick (using controller) vs having to click where you want the character to go and such. Everything seems built around for controllers and feels natural with a controller which is awesome. I'm hoping that a if a new Commandos game is ever made that it will have controller support as well. Controllers just feel better with these games.

I haven't played Commandos in a long time, since I was in middle school probably. It seems to me like Shadow Tactics has alot more you can do and interact with since the environments are 3D and you can change the viewpoint opening options (maybe I'm wrong and this feature was in Commandos, it's been awhile). I like things like repelling upon buildings and hiding in toilets.

My biggest complaint was the English voices... I changed the language to Japanese with English subtitles, because the English voices in audio didn't quite fit. It sounds like American actors tryimg to impersonate Asian actors doing English voices :p

I'm curious to see all the differences there were between Shadow Tactics and Commandos and since the Commandos games sell for $0.99 on sale, I ought to grace them next time they are available for such just to do a personal comparison.

Many thanks to both Shady and Oner for the games I poached off them.

 

I haven't gotten to try BROFORCE yet (thanks Shady!) but I definitely will use it for some local co-op with friends.

 

I did try Getting Over It with Bennet Foddy (thanks Oner!) and I think I may have made a horrible mistake. Some 20 minutes of attempts in and my calm is severely damaged. I enjoy the occassional rage game, but this one... I think this may be the worst one. This is made much worse by the fact that my wife is laughing at me about it. Oh my god, a terrible error in judgement!

 

I'm always astounded by the generosity in these threads. Message boards can be heated as they are generally filled with passionate people filled with their own opinions, and sometimes its easy to forget that there's so many good people in the community. It warms my heart. Thanks to all the generous people here!

I'm extremely thankful for their generosity and willingness, they don't have to do this but they do, and this is all of the goodness of their hearts. They don't ever question, they just give :)

I pray that God blesses them both and Santa treats them well this year, because they have really blessed me!

Thank you both, sincerely, THANK YOU!!!!!

So since Shadow Tactics disappeared so fast... is it any good? As good as Commandos, Desperados ,Robin Hood back in the late 90's early 2000s?

It was my GotY 2016, it's a very worthy spiritual successor to those games.

 

I haven't hit up anyone for a game this time around (Yet? I might after I build up the courage to look through Shady's ridiculously long lists  :p ), but I have in the past.  A big thank you to everyone who has ever given away games in these threads.

Bejeweled 3

 

I have over 500 hours played on this one. This is my ultimate chill game. Put on some music and play. Perfect before going to bed. The game makes me sleepy after a while.

Ooh, you have The Fall. I recommend that one. And the second part should be coming out relatively soon.

 

If one of you guys doesn't grab that soon, I will. My existing copy is PS4 and I was thinking about double dipping when the sequel came out.

RS2: Vietnam - grab that if you're into tactical PvP shooters, it's pretty good
