As someone who has played this, I endorse this claim 100%.I saw a let's play of Guns of Icarus Online, ans I was wondering if the game is fun. I saw it on the Steam store for $3.74 for a sale also. If I ended up getting this game, I think it would be fun for a game night or something. I saw that at one point someone had suggested this, but now I see this discount is even better.
(I know it's an old quote, but I saw this as reference material)
The game is fantastic and really should be on for a gamenight.
