I have come across some great PC games lately (expect some reviews soon) and I want to pass along where I either purchased them or where I’ve found them discounted. They’re not super cheap, so don’t get your hopes up, but I do initially recommend all three.
I’d be willing to play any of the titles with anyone who has them. Co-op is a blast in all three.
Dawn of War II
When it comes to RTS games, Relic is the pretty boy on the block right now. This game oozes atmosphere and style.
Just released this week, it’s my new PC passion. Think of it as chess meets an RTS meets an RPG meets huge lumbering beast and you get this gem.
I’d also recommend BattleForge, but it’s not being discounted right now. I’m not a big fan of collectable card games or micro transactions. However, this game comes with $30 in credit on top of the initial decks of cards you get. Essentially, you don’t need to pay extra to play—and play well. Take a CCG and marry it to an RTS and you get this game. It has 2, 4, and 12-player co-op.
Buttonmashing is getting nothing out of this other than, hopefully, people I know would want to play online.
