It is not often that I find myself at a loss for words, but the package that Square Enix has put together on the Steam digital distribution service flat out gobsmacked me. It is not the number of games and expansions that did it, it is the specific titles that are included in the package, and the very idea of having all of that gaming pleasure in one place, at the same time, well... It actually scares me.
Look at it this way -- if you are a new gamer and you have not been exposed to what are arguably some of the finest games ever -- and you buy this package... Well mate, there is serious risk that you will not be leaving your room for the next fortnight. If you are an experienced gamer and have played some or even most of these titles in years past, there is still some risk here -- some of these games have powerful mojo, and you could easily find yourself sucked into them and doing little to anything else.
What am I talking about? Why, the Square Enix / EIDOS Complete Pack (http://store.steampowered.com/sub/6931/) that is what! This is a set of epic games that includes:
* Age of Conan: Hyborian Adventures
* Batman Arkham Asylum GotY Edition
* Battlestations Pacific
* Battlestations Midway
* Conflict: Denied Ops
* Deus Ex GotY Edition
* Deus Ex: Invisible War
* Front Mission Evolved plus 4 Expansions and a Map Pack
* Hitman 2: Silent Assassin
* Hitman: Blood Money
* Hitman: Codename 47
* Just Cause
* Just Cause 2 plus 7(!) DLC Packs
* Kane & Lynch 2: Dog Days plus 3 DLC Packs
* Kane & Lynch: Dead Men
* Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light
* Shellshock 2: Blood Trails
* Supreme Commander 2 with the expansion pack
That is not the whole enchilada -- there are a bunch of other games, like the Tomb Raider collection, Last Remnant, and what may be the most dangerous, the Final Fantasy XI Ultimate Collection that will easily see you lured in to one of the best MMORPG's in the world. All of this for $74.99 US.
This one does not come with a government caution but I can only wonder why?!
