The Monday AAR: The Week After

E3 has come and gone, gamerfriends, and I'm left feeling mostly empty and jaded after all the slick, overproduced, samey content I sat through. Some games they showed excited me, sure, but I have a bad feeling in the pit of my stomach that gaming as a whole is moving in the wrong direction. It's the 90s gamer in me, talking about the good old days of autoexec.bat and config.sys. Don't mind that guy.

Anyway, some points of interest for you:

    • blitzio put up a thread about the stand-out videos from E3 here. GailExodus and Matrix374 were kind enough to help him out. If you'd like to strike up an E3 discussion a week after the fact, drop by and share your thoughts.

    • In ArmA II news, INQUE is taking sign-ups for participants in a basic training course to be held this week. If you'd like to learn the finer points of the ACE and ACRE mods as they are used in our ArmA II server, simply leave a message announcing your intent to join in the thread. The final schedule shall be posted shortly.

    • Minecraft Wednesday is this Wednesday, as always! Prepare to gear up for a creepy expedition as we head out into the nether to find stuff. And things. Also, it's time for you to claim a little plot of land to call your own if you want to build a house for yourself. Stand by for more details tomorrow!

    • Allow me to toot on my own horn for a brief spell: I've begun writing a series of articles about horror games aimed primarily towards people who don't play horror games. The first part can be found here, with each succeeding entry in my planned five-part series going up here on the blog every Wednesday. Stay tuned, and I highly encourage you to join in the discussion! Thanks for reading.

    • I don't usually post about deals here on the AAR, but I do the AARs and I deserve a little self-interesting plugging every now and then! Crusader Kings II and all its DLC are currently on sale on Steam at 75% off! You can get the base game for 10 USD, or go big time and grab the game and all currently released DLC for 13 USD.

      The game highly interests me, as its almost like Medieval II: Total War without the RTS Total War part. Politics, courtier assassinations, crusades, land grabbing, and more await! The deal only runs for one day only, so if you're interested, get it now!

IndieRoyale: Alpha Collection

Hello guys! Once again IndieRoyale has released another bundle. This one's called the Alpha Collection. It consists of 3 games that are currently in Alpha (what are they going to sell next, game concept pitches? draft production bibles? :3 --jed).

The games are:

  • Towns - A city building and management game mixed with an RPG that draws inspiration from titles spanning Dungeon Keeper, Dwarf Fortress and Majesty. Instead of playing the hero who delves deep into the dungeon, players oversee the town that houses and caters the hero's needs. Along the way, players can craft unique weapons, obtain randomized loot and build a settlement capable of holding back the forces that rise up from the active dungeon upon which the town sits. Towns official website

  • 3079 - A futuristic, open-world action first-person role playing game, and an alleged lovechild of Minecraft and Fallout, with a block-like world, futuristic action, and role-playing elements played in a first-person perspective. 3079's randomly generated areas, buildings, items, quests and characters make it an entertaining open-world experience. 3079 official website

  • Wyv and Keep - The Temple of the Lost Idol is a lusciously pixelated 2D co-op puzzle platformer. Dubbed as a more fiendish version of Blizzard's classic The Lost Vikings, the game features two young treasure hunters venturing into the land of Amazonia. Wyv and Keep official website

The current minimum price of this bundle is around $5 and we still got 6 days to buy it. Check it out now!

NOTE: When you buy this bundle you will get a DRM Free version and a Desura Key of each game.

*All of the games' descriptions are from the official website of IndieRoyale.

Adventures are not Dead: Book of Unwritten Tales at 33% Off

Twenty years ago, adventure games were king on the PC. Ten years ago, they were all but dead. If someone had told me back then that there would be this much talk about adventure games today, I'd have passed it off as wishful thinking. It's true, though; there's been talk about adventure games everywhere, from the small (but passionate) to the just plain astonishing.

This didn't pass the notice of our friends at KING Art Games, and to celebrate, they're currently offering The Book of Unwritten Tales (which we reviewed last week) at 33% off the original price! Visit http://www.unwritten-tales.com/ for more details. The sale is up to March 15th, 2012.

If you're an adventure game fan, you owe it to yourself to check this out.
