Not to let itself be out-done by Humble’s very many bundles packed with games, Bundle Stars has put together the ‘Nemesis Bundle 3‘. Unsurprisingly, this is the third iteration of the ‘Nemesis’ bundle, which collects a whole batch of games with a penchant for a little bit of the old ultra-violence. Similarly to Humble, this one is structured in a ‘pay more, get more’ format, starting from 89p / $1.
To get the whole lot you’ll have to throw down 8.89 / $9.99. That’s fifteen games total, including entries from the Tropico, S.T.A.L.K.E.R., Shadowrun franchises and more. You can also get the extra bizarre FaceRig tech in the mid-tier of the bundle if you like pretending you’re a raccoon on camera among other things.
El Presidente will return to rule an island could-be paradise with Tropico 6 [Steam page]. Publishers Kalypso Media today announced the latest in the city-building manage-o-strategy series, which is due in 2018. A new developer is taking over from Haemimont Games, who had made Tropicos 3-5, bringing new ideas including expanding across archipelagos and, er, sending agents to steal monuments like the Statue of Liberty.

Tropico 5, the parodically political city builder, has been updated with Steam Workshop support. Now you, the people, can work collectively to improve the land for the benefit of each other—thus proving that communism works.*
The Workshop allows new maps and missions to be downloaded. There isn't much of value there at the moment, but it'd be nice to see the game attract a solid community of creators.
Two new bits of DLC have also been released. The first is a free map-pack, containing five new sandbox and multiplayer maps. The second, called T-Day, adds a new scenario tasking you with shooting the greatest movie of all time. Hopefully not by kidnapping foreign film stars.
Finally, the full Tropico series is currently on sale. There are some great discounts there, with Tropico 5 reduced by 65% and Tropico 4—which is still probably your best bet if you're new to the series—available for under $5/ 4.
*This is a joke. I shouldn't have to point this out, but this is the internet that we're on.
