buenaventuraIs this free or what? I never figured that out. My kids undoubtedly will be happy about this.
No it's not free.

OK, but there is one version that is? When I installed ArchLabs, it offered to install minecraft for me, I didnt say yes, but I got to thinking... Is there a free version or what?

You can install the launcher and then the game, and you can play it for 100 minutes without the ability to save (but then you can start from scratch and play for another 100 minutes). So that might be enough fun for the kids. When you buy the game, you can play for as long as you want and of course your world will persist between sessions.

You can also try Minetest, which is not as advanced but equally fun, and totally free. The tutorial "world" is pretty cool, explaining all the features and even contains two types of collectibles, my kids really enjoyed it.

Nice timing, I was just wondering if Commandos get ported to Linux, as I was purchasing the freshly ported Desperados. :-)

ShabbyXThis game is nothing but awesome. If you haven't played it, you need to Play it Now!

@pb, played this with a keyboard and mouse and it worked well. Didn't try with a controller.

Thanks. I played Bastion with keyboard+mouse but I had a feeling it would be better with a controller. I'll probably try both ways with Transistor.

I bought it right after finishing Bastion, but somehow haven't gotten around to playing it yet. Is it better with keyboard or controller? Couch or desk? Close-up monitor or far-away TV screen?

I'd be interested in re-playing Talvisota, but how good is the game in general?

razing32Hmm , done by 2019 ?
That's quick
Wonder how re-mastered they can make a game THAT old.

Scroll down to "our goals for the Trilogy remaster". I'm guessing something similar will happen to Wasteland.
