    The TGT at Big Fish is the CE of Reflections of Life: Tree of Dreams, and the Daily Deal is Reveries: Sisterly Love (I liked it!)  All games are 60% off retail price.  Use the code SUMMER for $7.99 CE's, and SAVINGS for $3.99 SE's.

    GameHouse has the Book of Magic 2-in-1 Pack, iWin has Portal of Evil: Stolen Runes, and Alawar has Sweet Shop Rush.

    Go to Steam's Main Page to see 9 Daily Deals, plus two sets of Flash Deals (you'll have to scroll down a bit for the community-choice set.)  GamersGate's Daily Deal is Legend of Grimrock for $3.75.

    Happy gaming~! Sunny

    GameHouse has IGT Slots Garden Party today.

    Go to Steam's Main Page to see the 9 Daily Deals  and 8 Flash Deals.  GamersGate's Daily Deal is Tiny and Big: Grandpa's Leftovers for $2.00, and they're having a special on EA Games, Up to 75% Off.

    The TGT at Big Fish is Monument Builders: Alcatraz, and there is a soft release of the match-3 Artifacts of Eternity.  The Daily Deal is Hidden Expedition 4: Devil's Triangle.

    iWin has The Time Machine (it's by HdO, so I'm not making a topic unless someone is going to actually play it!) and Alawar has Dance of Death.

    Go to Steam's Main Page to see the 9 Daily Deals and 8 Flash Deals.  If you don't have Syberia 1&2 or Blackwell Legacy yet, NOW's the time!  They're a steal!  GamersGate's Daily Deal is Typing of the Dead: Overkill Thou Filthy Love Collection for $8.50.

    The TGT at Big Fish is Braveland (which they're calling an adventure, but looks more like a strategy-type game to me) and there is a soft release of Big Win Goldmine, which is a casino game.  The Daily Deal is Crime Line, which is really different -- I recommend checking it out! Use the code ONEDAY for $9.99 CE's, and the code SALE50 for $4.99 SE's.

    Both GameHouse and iWin have the Collector's Edition of Royal Envoy 3.

    Go to Steam's Main Page to see the 9 Daily Deals and 8 Flash Deals.  GamersGate's Daily Deal is for the Fallout games.

    Happy gaming~!

    I trialled Braveland and found it to be cute and fun.  I'd call it an "adventure lite" game - kind of a questing game for the super casual game market.  It was a nice change from the TM and HOG games normally featured.  So I supported it - IMO variety is a good thing, and the game played well,, had decent graphics / game mechanics, and was enjoyable.

    If you enjoy those types of games, it's worth a peek.

    (this isn't meant to be a review - if anyone is interested and there's a Braveland thread, I'll post a real review.)

    Hello Oh Wise and Wonderful Forum Folk - I was wondering ...

    It used to be that one had to be a BF Game Club member to get the TGT.  But now I can get it without being signed in.  When did that stop being a perk of Club Membership?

    (Or is this really, really old news and I just noticed now?)

    First I've heard of it. But I'm always logged into BFG, so wouldn't know how long it's been like that.

    The TGT at Big Fish is the SE of Haunted Hotel 6: Ancient Bane, and the Daily Deal is for my beloved Phantasmat.  If you've never played it, you're missing out (IMO, of course)!  If you buy Dark Parables 7: Ballad of Rapunzel today, you can get ANY other CE for half off using the code RAPUNZEL.  Heeey... Yeah right  I thought they said that was for yesterday ONLY?  *shrugs*  Well, OK, good for us Elk grin

    GameHouse has Braveland today, and iWin has the SE of Antique Shop 2: Journey of the Lost Souls.

    I really want to get this, but it's the end of the month.  My punch card is empty - If I was to get it now, I'd loose the punches at start of the month.   Cry

    Nothing is worse than taking advantage of a sale, carefully figuring how many punches you'll get to maximize the savings ... only to complete the purchase to realize that You. Can't. Count.   Oops! 

    So unless I want to buy a CE and a SE, or 4 SEs, I'll lose two punches on the 1st.  And I might want to, but I spent all my moolah over at GOG today.

    The code is CROWN for the deal.

    Which I've decided makes zero sense for me to do...and I've decided I do NOT need yet another game series to love.  So I'm skipping Hidden Expeditions entirely (unless somebody convinces me that is a huge mistake.   Whistle )

    I still haven't finished the other 3 Northern Tales!   OH! 

    The devs certainly kept this one quiet ... ...

    ... of course one has to shout things from the rooftops and put out a flashing neon banner for me to notice, but still.  Hadn't a clue.

    I demoed this game - and lasted all of 28 minutes - thinking it might have tycoon aspects for my tycoon lovin' hubbs ... what exactly does one DO in this game?  I didn't get it.  Perhaps some people will enjoy continuously feeding, cleaning, etc a bunch of animals, but this was not a game that appealed to me.

    You're given an empty dilapidated farm and an ostrich with the not-surprising goal of building a gloriously successful farm.  While the graphics are fresh, the game feels as if it is designed for a touch screen.  The mouse controls are unwieldy and awkward.  You must feed the animals and keep them clean, or they will run away. 

    Each time you buy food, it gets more expensive to buy the next time (very uncool).  It is ridiculously hard to make any money in the beginning of the game.  There is a tutorial, but it is sadly lacking in explanation.

    All in all, this is a sim game for folks who like to clean up after dirty animals.  ... It feels like a freemium game gone wrong, or (my perception of) something people would do on social media, or a game you'd play on a smart phone when you are bored out of your mind. 

    I give it ZERO stars ... unless somebody comes along and explains to me what I missed.
