Does anyone know if the two VR Ghostbusters games that are available on Steam in the US, Australia, and a couple more locations, can be gifted to someone from Europe?
I would love to get the games (I'm a fan of the franchise), but unfortunately, they don't have a price in my location. :(

Any fans of classic shmups in here?

Exactly one year later, on November 30th, Degica will finally release the English localisation of Game Tengoku CruisinMix:

I never played any of the games in the Farming Simulator series.
Usually, I would laugh a bit at the concept, but considering how much I have been enjoying playing the Truck Simulator series, and how Farming Simulator is similarly well received, and popular, I'm curious about the series.

A new one comes out tomorrow, and I was wondering if anyone familiar with the series could let me know a few things about how the game works, for example:

-I see there's more than one map; how do maps work? how big are they? how many are there?
-how hard is it to get the hang of things? is it a game you can play a 30-60 minute session, or does it have a big learning curve and demands some effort?
-are there any season content/events like in Euro Truck Simulator 2?
-does the game allow you to use your own mp3 tracks?
-usually, pre-order DLCs for the series aren't sold later on, right?

thanks :)

Thank you for the heads-up. That game looks really cool, despite apparently being abandoned, and no longer sold.

I set up to try to find a copy of it, and the strangest thing happened.
I searched on "is there any deal"; and I discovered it was part of a bundle at Indiegala ("Monday Bundle 6").
I went to my Indiegala account, and I discovered the bundle listed there, under another name (Every Monday #6), and I had a key for the game displayed, as if it was already revealed (so, I should have redeemed it already). I tried the key and... it worked. :p
Weird. Maybe for older bundles, the keys they added later on show as revealed? It never happened to me before.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't enjoy the boss fight though, was a very noteworthy tough boss.
...but seriously fuck that guy
Also fuck you Slyvando for waking him up, I swear if I could Decelerate you myself I would've

I'm not super familiar so won't be able to give you all the answers.

- Usually there are a few maps and there are also modded maps that are quite sizeable.
- Gameplay is fairly pick up and play to be honest but it will also be time consuming to grow your farm and unlock more crops etc the same with any management/sim game.
- I'm not sure about the rest of your points sorry!

Both Eastshade and Cloudpunk look great, going to keep my eye on those.

Follow my curator for More Puzzle Game Recommendations!

Golf Peaks, a rather ingenious mixture of minigolf and puzzle game, is another worthy addition to the minimalist puzzle genre.

Instead of being based on skill, for each hole you are delt a hand of cards that describe all the moves you can make. Cards like Forward one, forward two, jump two spaces and combinations of jumps and roll shots. With your hand you then need to hole out. As the game gets more complex various hazards are introduced, rough land that the ball can't roll through, sand traps where if the ball stops there it sinks and water.

Some of the later puzzles, especially the bonus ones, can appear quite intimidating at first but there is usually an elegant solution. The flow of new mechanics is fast enough that you never get bogged down doing the same sort of puzzle over and over like some games as well.

The audio and visuals are great and while the game will likely only take about an hour or so to complete, this is a great addition to the genre.

Has anyone played The Slater?

The game is currently on sale at Humble, and it looks like a decent low-budget first person Hitman-like game.

Wasn't really interested due to the art style they went with, but would have grabbed down the road as a curiosity due to loving some of those IPs, but with the Kenshin addition, I just can't support it. Killed any interest in this project for me.
really? that's a shame ... why, though? just curious

(also the regional pricing is REALLY bad on this one ... keeps getting worse and worse with each game they release)

I never like the Alice Madness Returns. The levels were too long and empty

How is Graveyard Keeper? The biggest complaint I am seeing on the Steam reviews is that the endgame is just pure grind

I like it, but I like it for its grind, I'm not really at the endgame yet though. They did however add in zombie workers recently which I think will make it easier with the grind.

Alice MR has some good platforming etc. but yes it is WAY WAY too long for its own good.
