Daily Deal: Niche - a genetics survival game -66% $17.99 $6.12
A very odd looking game, but intriguing. Anyone have experience with it?
Does playing the "home version" count?
I don't remember where I read this, Cort, maybe it was in the last patch notes, but they said the UAZ really handles the best when... the wheels are actually touching the ground.

So Endless Legends and Endless Space 2 have their DLC's bundled together in a sale. Steam says I'll save CAN$3.16. Even in my cheapskate world of scroogitude, if a $1.58 is enough to flip you from "no thanks" into "yes please" on DLC for a game you like, then you are riding a much finer edge than I can even comprehend.

Did you play Human Resource Machine? They are coding games. Even if you find a way to solve the puzzle by brute force, the goal is also to optimize your code.

I didn't play HRM. Back in the dark ages when I wrote code for a living (partially) I never was much good at optimization, I was more of a brute force kind of a guy.

Me, I'm happy. Spent the last week setting up six sites to do taxes. Laptops might not weigh much, but printers do and so do full ten ream boxes of paper :roll:. But it's February 1st and the sites are up and running and aside from the occasional hardware breakdown, nothing much for me to do for eleven weeks :coffee:

I looked around quickly and there were a couple of items low enough to consider, but not many (from my wishlist anyway) and I'm fairly certain I could find those items lower if I took the time and put in the effort. If the sale was $6 off each item on any item $15 or more, I would consider it. $6 bucks off a one time purchase (even if it's multiple items) over $30 bucks isn't enough to get me to bite. It's not a bad offer though, really. It's just not good enough, for me, particularly with how the individual items are priced.

I was surprised that they are having another sale so soon after the holiday/winter sale. The discounts are a mixed bag. At least one thing on my WL was lower than it was during the holiday sale, but some others are not as discounted now. (Shrugs.) Too much in my backlog unfinished to jump on anything right now.

And well worth it. The ability to strap a bomb to a cow and then send it into an enemy camp is worth twice that at least.
