    Grmbl, thanks new page. Against good form I'll repeat my previous comment to hopefully get a reply:

    I've never played a Lego game, what are they like? Won't bother installing it - even for free - if I'm sure I'll never play it anyway...

    They are simplish in gameplay but usually attempt a non too serious take on their property. Reasonably fun in small doses. Good for kids too with effectively unlimited lives and child friendly themes. Haven't played this one myself yet but for free it really is just best to 'buy' it and try it and if you hate it uninstall.

    The Lego games are like Dean Koontz novels. The first one is fun, entertaining and moreish in a lo-fi kind of way.

    Then you try a second one and realise they’re all reskins/retreads.

    @One_Vurfed_Gwrx Good point, cheers. I'll get on it then though I'm unsure when exactly considering I've just installed the - also free - GTA 5 from EGS yesterday.
    And I still have about 200 games yet to finish in my Steam library o_O

    Some people say Phantasy Star Online 2 is available on Windows Store as a free to play game, but I can't find it. Also the install files are supposedly huge (11 gig download then 70 gigs).
    Meh, only for the 'merkins apparently.

    @monsieur-Cosmo I'm just starting it up after downloading the updates overnight.

    All I did was go to this link and it loaded up the page in windows store and downloaded fine. Just don't go to the UK or relevant page if it asks.

    Just google PSO2 windows store and follow it, link wont paste on here properly.

    If you like Samurai Shodown, and you have Prime, there are a bunch more free on Amazon Games at the moment, along with Dream Daddy.

    I found an actual hidden gem / diamond in the rough in the Steam sale. I'm totally addicted!

    Logistical

    It's a pick up and deliver / logistical management game with loads of towns that have resource inputs, conversions and outputs that you have to connect to supply chains. It looks like a bloody horrible mess with a ton of icons thrown at the screen. It's quite mind boggling and almost overwhelming at first. You'd be forgiven for thinking it's a 90s shareware game and the interface is rough to say the least (although actually good once you understand it).

    The latest version is out in a few weeks and there's a demo available:

    https://store.steampowered.com/app/672150/LOGistICAL_Earth/

    You can also try out some free modules in the previous iterations. There are many modules covering different countries and they all have slightly different mechanics. I'm currently playing Belgium and Indonesia.

    It's a giant puzzle that you chip away at bit by bit as you unravel connections and unlock more towns and industries and get things going where they need to go. It sort of feels like work and fun mixed together. Why am I enjoying something that's probably someone's full time job!? All I can say is that it has that "I'll just do one more thing" appeal.

    It would be easier if it had listing screens and more ways to get overviews of resources etc. but I'm sort of glad it doesn't as it makes working stuff out more rewarding.

    Which are you playing, Logistcal, Logistal 2(free to play), or the demo of the new one?

    @brokenkey

    I first tried the demo of the Logistical 3 which lets you play around a bit in New Zealand to learn some mechanics. It appears to be a little slicker than the previous games. I will definitely buy it when it comes out.

    I also bought the Indonesia & Belgium modules for Logistical 2. I'm currently flipping between both modules. Indonesia is a little simpler as Belgium has something like 11,000 mail boxes where you have to make deliveries!

    Yeah, the tutorial is not the best for sure. It took me a good couple of hours to understand the basics.

    Load up the Isle of Man in Logistical 2 for an easier intro. The game is most definitely a diamond in the rough but it's good once you get to grips with the user interface.
