Default Dark Messiah for 5€ on steam this weekend!

..which for all you americans must translate into an equally low amount of $$$!

Just a quick reminder to those who haven't seen this. The game has it's share of bugs, but if you can look past it and the rather predictable/cliché story, there is some really fun first person action rpg waiting!

Lol seriously? Try to access the games or game packages through the news on steam?

By the way here is an interesting observation on the pricing.
In my steam store there are three options

1. Heroes V package - 13€
2. Dark Messiah - 5€
3. Heroes V packtage + Dark messiah - 20€

So yeah, wtf @ price 1+2 != price 3. So apparently the distributive law of algebra doesn't apply on steam, which is pretty silly.

Just buy the things seperately for 18€ if you can.

I never understood why this game was so underrated. It has by far the best melee combat out of any game i've played. If oblivion had combat as deep as this game it would have been 10x better. $5 is a steal for this game. The length is just about right for a mix of fps and rpg. I enjoyed it quite a bit.

+1

I'm pretty much a shooters only type of gamer, but I loved this title. Great game.
