The reason I say that is the following: game has been out for a while and the DLCs have been deeply discounted. If you’re spending $5 on a bundle in which your only/main interest is Renowned Explorers, I’d get it with the DLCs from steam in the next sale/discount. Especially considering there is a bundle for game+DLCs on Steam which already has a considerable base discount – 38%.
@PeteMcc I really like the “More to Explore” DLC, it ads interaction between the characters and a few new locations.
The new locations add replayability value. Since you can choose which locations to visit in each playthrough, you need to build your end-game strategy from the beginning. So if you have more end-game options, you have more early-game freedom. The character interactions add a new layer of depth, as your explorers can trade stories and thoughts with each other and that affects their performance plus makes for some fun achievements.
I’ve been wanting the “Emperor’s Challenge” since it was announced, because the new locations look very cool. However, I don’t think it ads as much to the game as a whole as the “More to Explore”. More to Explore feels like a CIV DLC: should have been on the base game.
so, this bundle had me real excited
but turns out they had some listing issues, so they put it up and pulled it down couple of times in the span of 20mins or so
so when i grabbed it i had 1 less game than i thought and had initially been keen on being included in this. Not that the reaming bundle alone wasn’t enough to make me grab it, which i did ofc. I had just hoped to get Subaeria that i saw, instead of Subterrain -that i already own
but homeworld remaster collection, tales of candlekeep and others, easily makes this pack of games worth the 5€ anyway imo
meh with cheap bundles i’m almost at the stage of instinctively put them in a box labeled, “i’ll probably never get around to these, and that’s okay -because bundle”,
and at this point it’s more the “individual” purchases i try to remind myself “you should probably play this sometime, you know, since you actually bought it” -even if i still never do
I played it for an hour or so and I can’t say I’m fond of the gameplay. It surely looks nice and is interesting, but didn’t keep me hooked at all. I quit when I apparently had to backtrack 10mins or so, ugh
