Plenty reviews I've read have compared it to that, but since I have no idea wtf Dwarf Fortress is I can't say.

Things like learning that no matter how high his skill in growing is, it is not a good idea to have a pyromaniac as your main crop planter/cutter. Or learning to check what weapon a colonist has before sending him to hunt. You remember real quick when you lose half the available trees on a map b/c you sent someone hunting a chinchilla w/ Molotov cocktails.

Well yeah in a lot of ways, that's true, but time really is a factor. Prefer games like FTL where you learn from run to run but each individual game isn't that long versus something where you build over time and sink tons of hours into one play through (other examples I enjoy in this vein are Renowned Explorers, Invisible Inc, and even like Rogue Legacy or Enter the Gungeon).

They just did an AMA as well. Naturally, it was a disaster.

Also, HB Monthly continues to be awesome

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Humble Monthly had: Xcom 2(obviously), Ryse: Son of Rome, Abzu, Steamworld Heist, Okhlos, Project Highrise, Husk, Hollow Knight, Oh Deer. Anyone know of these games, aside from xcom and ryse?

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Got HB for XCOM2 this month - happy to see Project Highrise which was on my Steam wishlist already. Gotta look into the others before I know what to do with those, but I've already got Steamworld Heist, so if someone wants that, let me know ITT.

Project high rise looks like fun and is at a high price point so that's a good get.

Yeah, looks like a pretty good bundle this month.
Says that it is valued at $179.
But that's obviously not counting that a lot of the games were on sale for a lot cheaper.

I know the answer to this, but:

What are the thoughts on Total War: Warhammer? worth the $12?

Re: Let's talk about Steam and buy mountains of games

Nice I was considering getting Steamworld Heist for iPad but I'll take it as part of HB for now. Definitely will not be keeping all those games, gotta see which ones interest me and then will give some away. Of course I'm not even playing XCOM yet since I got Darkest Dungeon right after.

I'm 90% sure that Xcom is way better than Darkest Dungeon, but I could be wrong.

I played Darkest Dungeon for a bit last year and I couldn't figure out how to make my excursions into the dungeons +EV. Got unfun rather quickly.

Darkest dungeon is very very good.

Xcom is significantly better

Yep. Creative Assembly is a shadow of their former selves, but this one isn't bad. Still the best battle engine, "strategy" is laughable, and the fantasy stuff works well with the game. I'd have preferred an official LOTR total war, but that's me.

It's close but I love the atmosphere DD has and it also doesn't take 5 minutes to load every mission.

I just took this gift link thank you. Surprised that lasted long, seems like a bad game though. Other one gone already.

I'll drop one too
