Men of War is good innit. Would buy/10. It's also only 99p! Anyone ever play Soldiers: Heroes of WW2? It's basically more of that.

They've got a sale on at the moment for the Divinity games, barring the most recent OS2:

Some good deals. Weirdly I was looking up Dragon Commander just the other day as it's the one game in the series I haven't played and was curious to perhaps give a go... it was too expensive then, but at just £3 now it felt like too good an opportunity to pass up :)

This collection seems pretty generous for the money. £19.39 gets you Kingdom Come Deliverance, Shadow Tactics and Battle Chaser.

If you don't already own those (which I do), then that is a fantastic price. KCD and Shadow Tactics are great games, and Battle Chaser is also a very fun and slick JRPG-like.

It's an okay point and click adventure. Gets worse as it goes along and you start to find out more about Kathy and what a messed up individual she is.


In other GOG news, I see Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine is now available! I find this quite astonishing, as it was my understanding that nobody had managed to get this game working on any OS since the days of Windows XP, and only just barely as it seemed to be written to work only on Win 98. I loved that game back when it first came out. I also still hold to the belief that I was the first person in this country to own a copy. I bought it on 17 October 1999, the day of release, the moment the PC shop opened. The assistants were so surprised at my asking for the game, because stock had only arrived that very morning off the delivery truck, and they hadn't even put it on the shelves yet!

Something in my aspect and speech seemed to excite vague fears and aversions in everyone I met, as if I were a being infinitely removed from all that is normal and healthful.
