Space Sector’s Bargain List: From Ancient to the Future

The SS Sci-Fi Strategy Bargains

Our gaming bargain choices for the weekend spans from ancient times to a possible future of our civilization. From the humble beginnings of our ancestors to the most probable humble again of our descendants. Where, or better, when do you prefer to rule the fate of the world at a discount price? On one side you have the historic Sid Meier’s Civilization 5 and his new expansion Gods & Kings turn-based experience, on the other side the post-apocalyptic real-time Earth 2140, Earth 2150 and Earth 2160 games from Reality Pump Studios.

Earth 2140 TrilogyEarth 2150 Trilogy and Earth 2160 ($2.99+$2.99+$2.99: 50%)

I never played the Earth 2140-2160 games but as far as I understand they are worthy sci-fi strategy titles. From bio wars, to the Moon and then to Mars these seem to be very interesting titles. And, while I don’t have first hand information about them they probably deserve your attention if you’re up to futuristic warfare strategy, and they’re quite cheap on GOG at the moment.

Civilization 5 (70% off) and Civilization 5: Gods & Kings (30% off)

Civ5 and its recent first expansion Gods & Kings are also good bargains at the moment on GetGames, with 70% and 30% off respectively. These titles I played heavily, as many of you know. Civ’s 5th installment didn’t have a brilliant start but Gods & Kings has made it shinier. Civ5: Gods & Kings is now my second favorite Civ game, after Civilization 4: Beyond the Sword. Checkout my review in case you missed it.

Have a nice weekend everyone! And, happy gaming :)

    These are Earth 2140, 2150, 2160. One hundred years later. :) Earth 2150 was a milestone in RTS genre in its time, one of the first 3D strategies (second after Warzone 2100, I guess) and including many interesting features (undeground tunnels, temperature, weather, unit designing, non-linear campaign and so much more). It’s definitely worth trying although some mechanics can look a bit anachronic today. This game got 2 expansions and these two as well as vanilla game have good story motivating you to play more and more… I’ve still got this game on my HDD.

    Earth 2160 didn’t live up to expectations IMO but it’s still a solid game and it’s worth playing for huge differences between 4 playable races alone (especially base building is different). The campaign story is pretty bad and dialogues are cheesy most the time. Gameplay is quite good, though.
