Is it finally time for me to purchase Civilization: Beyond Earth? I think so.

Indeed.

Adjusted to just the basic button with menu, and then option 'demo' button (cause on MGS, half the games have the demo time). Various other minor visual tweaks... but yes, those tiles were a serious pain, because the insides were always a jumble of TMI, or NEI. So we decided to just ditch the sliders entirely.

Now another HUGHE sale is on. What I am really missing is the info about the game if it's a native port, or some wine/crossover/cider/dosbox stuff.
That is a really important information for me, but It's not visable.

All the Topware-Stuff is perhaps wine, but I am not sure. I would only buy the native-apps.

Hehe... wow. Wellllllll... given its almost IMPOSSIBLE to get the bare bones system requirements out of Publishers these days... getting something more advanced like that, would be an almost impossibility. And no, there are no hands on deck to dig into code/play-test all games to find out that information either. :D

At least the Earth 20x0 games, Two Worlds II and as far as I know X-Blades are native.

I have some very catty threads with the dev for Two Worlds II on Steam. He finally admittedly publicly to dropping Mac support but without changing the tags on Steam. His Mac porting person quit or something, so it probably applies to their entire catalogue at this point, which is a drag. Maybe they will opt in to GeForce Now, at least?

When will the current sale end on MGS? There is no end date like Steam has.

Current sale? There are just normal run of the mill sales going on right now. No all encompassing sales event (those are using around holidays, start of summer, end of summer, that sort of thing).

Yes, for example Borderlands titles have 75-87% discount. How long? Actually I was thinking of WGS but wrote MGS. I have a long wishlist and many titles there are also on sale, like Dishonored series -75%, but when will this sale end?

Who knows, honestly. Price reliability is 'not a thing' on the game store. It could change from hour to hour depending on the whims of whomever is changing prices.

Sounds strange. Steam's current sale ends Aug 24. You can see that if you visit any game's page, but WGS doesn't provide such information? Steam always shows when the sale ends.

Shows a timer on the game detail page. If no timer, then its one of our 'pretty much always on sale' sale prices.

Which could end at any moment.

Haha, thanks! Completely missed that little timer at the top corner. Would be better if it was placed under the price instead. :D

Was deemed too messy (too much text of various sizes and colors/styles) all in that area. So it was split by design. ;)
