Two new releases today (that are actually new):

  $14.99  Albedo: Eyes from Outer Space (2015, Action/Adventure/Sci-fi) ║ 25% off until April 17, at 9:59 AM GMT.
  $19.99  Dead Synchronicity: Tomorrow Comes Today (2015, Adventure/Point-and-click/Sci-fi) ║ 10% off until April 17, at 9:59 AM GMT.

Neither had any recent / |OT|s to reference though, and I have no time to dig up impressions atm.

Edit: Also, the weekend promo, Ubiverse, which has "Up to 75% off Heroes of Might and Magic 3, Settlers 2 Anniversary, Prince of Persia, Rayman Origins, and more." So might be something worthwhile in there if you haven't gotten HoM&M 3 or some other classics.

Which of the Settlers games are worth getting, and are 'kid friendly'? My nephew liked playing Age of Empires 2 on my PC and I'd like to have a game that's a little easier for him to grasp.

The Settlers games are all kid friendly in terms of content, but are all far more complicated then AOE2.

Interesting, well if I can only get 1 Settlers game, it'd be Settlers 2 right? What's the overall ranking of the games?

Settlers 3 is pretty similar to 2, just added a bunch more resource chains on top of what was already there.

The 10th anniversary version is a remake they did with full 3d graphics. Probably a little more palatable to a kid.

Couple releases added to the OP today:

  $19.99  Age of Wonders 3: Eternal Lords (2015, Strategy/Turn-based/Fantasy)|OT|
  $14.99  Titan Souls (2015, Action/Combat/Fantasy)|OT|
   $9.99  REVOLVER360 RE:ACTOR (2014, Shooter/Arcade/Sci-fi) ║ 60% off until April 19, at 12:59 PM GMT.

No recent threads on Revolver360, but the other two have OTs (Eternal Lords being an AoW3 expansion just links to the AoE3 thread... which is said to be a damn great game that goes criminally unnoticed, of which I'm guilty myself).

Age of Wonders with all DLC will probably be much cheaper in the next sale if you can wait 90 days.

I'd go for bundles or cheap games.

What do you think you will enjoy more? In that situation I would personally go for the shmup things but that is my personal taste.

Very true, but I'd like to support smaller devs like Triumph and Larian, who put out top-notch games (heck, AoW3 is the only big-name classical TBS on the market right now; I absolutely refuse to install UPlay). Then again, my gaming budget this month is rather restricted due to various personal issues.

I like TBS and TBRPG roughly equally. The packs offer more games, but TBH I'm not exactly a fan of Japanese-style bullet hell shmups. I find them a bit frantic and twitchy. FWIW, my absolutely favourite shmup, unrivalled since, remains Tyrian. The puzzle-platformers look interesting, but I haven't played one in a long while.

Finally got the OP up to date for the entire year (for a list of all the releases). GOG doing 10-12+ game releases a week vs 3 or 4 really burns through that character limit a lot faster (and makes it a bit more work to catch up when they do their 9 releases in a day thing)!

This year has made me pretty optimistic about gog's future. There's now games from multiple Japanese developers, games from Disney and day one releases from smaller devs/publishers. Must be a lot easier for GOG to convince publishers to open up their back catalogues these days(unless they have a competing store).

I think all that's left is for a major publisher to take a gamble and trust drm-free for a day one AAA release.

What's the overall verdict on Agarest: Generations of War Zero? Is it better than Agarest: Generations of War (which I have on Steam)? I've heard the series is grindy and mediocre... The reviews seem to say is better, but doesn't really give the impression that it's a good game...
