It's something that has never been done before. You can actually roleplay both your characters at the same time. If you want you can have them agree all the time (choose loyal personality during character creation), if you want you can have them disagree (choose clashing personalites). Then you roleplay the argument which is done via a rock paper scissors system (literally). You can choose to intimidate, charm or reason with your other character and depending on your stats the rps-game is tilted in the favor of one character or the other. Whoever wins the argument gets to decide the course of action. If you're into actual roleplay you'll probably like this. At first I found it a bit schizophrenic, you know, I was basically arguing with myself if I should kill the guy or not. This system also works in multiplayer.

I don't know that game so maybe, yeah.

I should add that this is a game with a steep learning curve. It doesn't tell you anything, there are no markers that tell you where to go to finish a quest, even basic things in the game are left for the player to figure out at times and the tutorial only covers the absolute most important basics. And it's gonna kick your ass until you figure stuff out (it's not exactly a cakewalk after that either).

Hmm, doesn't sound that appealing to be honest. The game itself does, I looked into it a bit but when I found out it had two main characters my interest died a lot. I don't know why but I need a single main character to enjoy an RPG. Parties are great, supporting characters and all that, just a single main. It's the same with books though, I like books that focus on a single characters view/experiences, rather than hopping between multiple characters. A few exceptions but yeah.

You can always check out a Let's Play if you're not sure.

I have so many games on my Steam that I won't be able to play them all unless I lose my job and all of my friends.

But here goes...

Cook, Serve, Delicious!
Played this one for 7 hours so far. Lots of fun if you're looking for a quick fix. It's a restaurant game which is a mix of action (preparing meals in real time) and business simulation (upgrading dishes and your restaurant). I only got to the 2 star restaurant so far but it's slowly getting difficult as hell. Picked it up with a Humble Bundle and haven't regretted it.

Game Dev Tycoon
So far I have 29 hours on it. It's a business simulation of a game company with focus on game development and employee management. Lots of fun and addicting as hell. Haven't played it for a while but never regretted getting it during the Steam Summer Sale.

Mount&Blade: Warband

You're the leader of an army in the Middle Ages themed kingdom of Calradia. You can be your own king or fight for one of the other factions. It's open world and the only game of it's kind that I know of, combining RPG, action and management aspects. Definitely worth the money.

Nether
Basically DayZ with some sort of semi-magic monsters I guess instead of zombies. Took me 20 minutes to connect to a server and then it crashed on me a few times. I'd rather play an extremely early version of DayZ (which I also own) than this. At least it wasn't expensive during the Summer Sale.

Hitman: Absolution
I have long disregarded the Hitman series as just another shooter. I was so wrong. I've only played an hour or so but I can already tell this is a quality game and probably one of a kind. You can get 3 games of the series right now on Humble Bundle.


All that reminds me... I still have to finish Tomb Raider.

Friends and private life is overrated anyway.

Hitman: Absolution is absolutely terrible imo. I'm so gutted I bought it as my first digital buy so I can't return it.

Hitman Blood Money is an absolutely amazing game.

The stupid thing about Absolution, is there aren't any contracts. No one's saying "Here's your target...". You're in some place and they through out random targets for no reason without explaining why they must die. It's some sort of weird revenge mission. They also hit ridiculous stereotypes and have annoying deep south locations for everything.

Blood Money SMASHES it.
