It is a pretty sweet game. Weird disconnect between plot and gameplay, but I didn't find it too offputting. :3

Nicolas
07-11-2013, 06:57 PM
It is a really good game. Green man gaming seems to have it for 5 bucks cheaper with their coupon code today too... Almost as if they anticipated this.

But yeah... Gonna lose me some money this summer. :(

I always work Steam sales into my budget. I set aside $100 for this. No joke.

Skyrim legendary for 36 but I can get the vanilla disc for 20. Is the dlc worth 16 and not waiting? I've heard good things on Dragonborn but how long is Dawnguard? Comparable to Knights of the Nine?

Pike
07-11-2013, 07:10 PM
Dawnguard main quest is maybe 5-6 hours if you don't breeze through it. It's definitely not bad; I preferred Dragonborn but that's because of all the Morrowind shoutouts.

Bolivar
07-11-2013, 07:19 PM
Well vanillas right now 21 and if I recall last year TES stuff went down a little lower as it ran on so maybe I'll just grab vanilla and d.born if they dip.

Help a Boli out people - vote Far Cry 3!

Slothy
07-11-2013, 07:20 PM
The Steam Store is experiencing some heavy load right now. Please try again.

No fucking wonder. It's summer sale time bitches!

Nicolas
07-11-2013, 07:29 PM
Help a Boli out people - vote Far Cry 3!

Yeah. I've planned on picking up that game on sale too, but it seems to be a little more than some places have been selling it for already. I almost feel it might be better when it's added to the daily deals, because you know it will be. ;o

THis is exactly why I don't use steam often, It's even more addicting than buying on PSN.

Nicolas
07-11-2013, 08:13 PM
It really is. Though it is good for converting from console gaming to PC gaming... which is why I have so many games on there now. Though, Pike has a higher percentage rate of play than I do.

I'm one of those rare people that has played every single game in my Steam library at least once. But if I had as many as Pike that probably wouldn't be true.

NorthernChaosGod

I'm so glad you posted this, Pike. I had been thinking about getting KoTOR and KoTOR 2 for my computer and now they're 33% off. :D

i have, 6 games and considering that half of the time the computer i play them on either:
a) can't play them (doesn't meet requirements)
b) i just lose interest

so really i don't know, buying games anymore seems stupid to me (am i getting to old for video?
anyways, i don't have the proper rig, or a controller.

Because I don't devote 40% of my my gaming time to a single title?

Edit: Or pay 12 bucks for a game I have played and didn't enjoy? :p

Pike

You can keep guessing though :}

Got FTL at 75% off and Portal at 50%. Yay!

Nicolas
07-12-2013, 07:36 PM
Huzzah. Sales aren't too bad today. May pick up Far Cry 3 and Blood Dragon in the Flash Sale. Also, for you indie fans, Fez is half off and it's completely worth it. That'll probably be my big purchase for the day unless something comes up on the Flash Sale at 9 PM EST.

Pike
07-12-2013, 07:41 PM
Got FTL at 75% off and Portal at 50%. Yay!

Some great deals there my friend! :D

I cave and got Bioshock Infinite this morning. Not sure when I'll play it cause I'm a bit busy for the next couple of weeks but I've got it all installed and everything!

I'm not counting WoW because I haven't played it in forever. Although if we're counting total time played yeah it's probably my #1 title. I think I've probably got ~7000 hours in there.

Neither of those were the one I'm thinking of though! :tongue:

Shauna
07-12-2013, 08:51 PM
FTL and Fez, eh? Hmm....

Pike
07-12-2013, 08:53 PM
FTL is very good although I must warn everyone to prepare for frequent ragequits when they play it because it's just that kind of game.

Fez... it's very cute and relaxing but it never managed to grab my interest beyond that. Might just be me though.

Nicolas
07-12-2013, 09:11 PM

dang, i need to buy portal i guess

my 3 year old laptop should run it right

Portal will run on a toaster; I ran it on Linux on my old hunk of trash and this was before there was a Linux port

Denmark
07-12-2013, 09:39 PM

is there anything else available for really cheap that'd be worth getting? not home now and not gonna have time to look today

FTL, Hotline Miami, and the Walking Dead are just from the front page and will expire 1PM EST at the earliest tomorrow. There are tons of others that are good as well.

Pike
07-12-2013, 10:25 PM
FTL, Hotline Miami, and the Walking Dead

All of these games are great

FTL for the biggest love/hate relationship you will ever have with a game

Hotline Miami for copious amounts of pixel blood and guts

The Walking Dead for feels and some great writing

Mister Adequate
07-12-2013, 11:03 PM
Everything Nicolas and Pike said is correct.

Just Cause 2 isn't the best open-world game ever made but it's still stupidly fun to fuck around on Panau for a few hours here and there. At this price it's a steal.

Any of the games currently up for the community vote would be great but if Sleepy Dogs wins there is no question that you should get it because it is fucking brilliant.

I hear a lot of good things about Chivalry if you like medieval multiplayer madness.

Rantz
07-12-2013, 11:15 PM
Oh is the Walking Dead game good? Might get it later on.

Pike

It's super good! One of the better games that came out recently IMO.

TWD was close to GOTY, get it without hesitation.

Mister Adequate
07-13-2013, 01:35 AM
Alright losers listen up.

XCOM is gone in 25 minutes so you best grab it before then.

Sleeping Dogs won the community vote and once it hits in about half an hour you best be buying that because it's a good fucking game.

Nicolas

Sleeping Dogs was a surprisingly good game. One of the few I bought on a whim and actually played all the way through to the end. Completely worth the money you'll be paying as a Flash Sale. srsly

Jiro
07-13-2013, 05:21 AM
Sleeping Dogs is a kickass game. I haven't seen a lot of this sale so far but not a whole lot is jumping out at me. I got most of the halfway decent games already though, so I guess that's a good thing?

Sephex
07-13-2013, 07:52 AM
Reporting in to show love of Sleeping Dogs. VERY much worth picking up.

Bolivar
07-13-2013, 07:39 PM
Oh man, one of the few games I've actually been looking out for just hit the $5 mark - The Witcher 2!!! *copped*

If you haven't played these games, the first Witcher Enhanced Edition Director's Cut is only $2.49! When Bolivar recommends a WRPG there must be something half-special about it.

Slothy
07-13-2013, 08:34 PM
Bought Surgeon Simulator. Fuck this game is awesome. Also got Age of Empires 2, but haven't played that one yet.

Bolivar
07-13-2013, 09:05 PM
I really wanna grab AoEII as well, but I feel like they're gonna have a better deal than $10 before this thing is done.

Slothy
07-13-2013, 09:32 PM
Maybe they will, but I try not to worry too much about what deals may or may not appear. It was at a price I could live with paying so that's good enough for me.

Pike
07-14-2013, 10:22 AM
Age of Empires II is tempting me so bad augh but I'm trying to spread out my money.

As an aside, You Need a Budget is 75% off for the next seven hours and even though it's not a game, that is a really good price for a really, really good budgeting program if anyone is looking for one.

Aulayna
07-14-2013, 10:30 AM
The advantage of having no internet at home right now is that I have spent precisely €0 this sale.

Damnit Pike I'm actually tempted by that budgeting program now...

The Man
07-14-2013, 11:21 AM
The new Tomb Raider is $12.50. I'm thinking about it. I also have to pick up Dark Souls, but I think I'm going to wait to see if it drops to more than 50% off before the sale ends.

Slothy
07-14-2013, 01:34 PM
Damnit Pike I'm actually tempted by that budgeting program now...

What the fuck? It's the Steam sale and we're both considering a budgeting program? I feel fucking old now.

Mister Adequate
07-14-2013, 01:51 PM
I was looking at You Need A Budget earlier for rather longer than I'd like to admit before I clicked that it wasn't a videogame.

Why is there something not a videogame on Steam, Gaben? :colbert:

Slothy
07-14-2013, 01:57 PM
You can't take over the world by only selling games. Also, Greenlight. The people have spoken!

EDIT: Fuck it, just caved and bought it because I am the worst budgeter/accountant ever.

Aulayna
07-14-2013, 02:48 PM
Yeah... I'm terrible with money. I just purchased it too.

Slothy
07-14-2013, 02:54 PM
I'm great at tracking other peoples money, I just always hated the idea of coming home and doing more of what I did at work. I'm hoping this can do most of the work for me.

Aulayna
07-14-2013, 03:06 PM
Pike will be delighted to know I also picked up Endless Space as well.

Pike
07-14-2013, 04:03 PM
Good on you guys, YNAB is the only budgeting program I've found that actually works well. Lemme just say that I shelled out full price ($60) for it after my trial ended because I liked it so much. I just allot all my money to different categories at the beginning of every month, input any purchases I make, and voila, I know exactly how much I have left over to put into extra debt payments or whatever. By the way if any of you guys hook it up to Dropbox and want an invite so we both get more space then let me know.

Ahahaha we're so old talking about a budgeting program like this.

Anyways yes Endless Space! It's a great little 4X which isn't perfect but is still very good. I've put many a long hour into it.

Slothy
07-14-2013, 04:22 PM
Ahahaha we're so old talking about a budgeting program like this.

I think it's already generated more discussion than any other single program yet.


Anyways yes Endless Space! It's a great little 4X which isn't perfect but is still very good. I've put many a long hour into it.

I haven't played a game in quite a while, but I think there were some updates a while ago. I need to play it again sometime soon. I can't remember, does it have multiplayer? Because I'd totally play that.

Pike
07-14-2013, 04:24 PM
I seem to recall Hux and I giving multiplayer Endless Space a shot a while back so I'm pretty sure it does unless I'm thinking of the wrong game.

Shauna
07-14-2013, 04:27 PM
I have no reason for a budgeting program at this point and you guys are making me want it for no good reason. :stare:

Slothy
07-14-2013, 04:29 PM
My thought process regarding the budgeting program is this:

Are you poor? If yes:
Do you want to be poorer in the short term to be less poor later on?

Plus it claims to have reports that humans can read. Humans! BoB never gives us reports like that.

The Man
07-14-2013, 04:29 PM
I have no reason for a budgeting program at this point and you guys are making me want it for no good reason. :stare:You and me both. :( If it were less than $15 I probably would have bought it though. (Yes, I know $15 for a $60 program is still a really good sale, but being able to resist sales on things I am not going to gain any particular use from in the near future is probably one reason why I don't need a budgeting program).

Pike
07-14-2013, 05:10 PM
ahahaha I feel like we should rename this to the Budgeting Program Thread :p

Anyways I just caved and bought AoEII HD Edition. Terrible self-control over here. At least it's (mostly) guilt free because... I budgeted for this sale with my budgeting program! :monster:

Mister Adequate
07-14-2013, 05:19 PM

Multiplayer Budgeting for the Win?

Yeah, for the most part, this sale has been pretty good on games I already have... just hate the fact that they seem to not want me to spend money on the items I DO want. :(

Bought YNAB though. That should be worth its weight in gold after July 22.

Slothy
07-15-2013, 01:13 AM

I honestly think TL2 is overrated and has several fundamental design flaws. I actually (and this doesn't happen very often for me) enjoyed the original more.

Pike
07-15-2013, 10:37 AM
I didn't even notice a difference between the two games beyond having a bigger choice of pets (which is GREAT :love: )

Aulayna
07-15-2013, 10:42 AM
I guess for me it just felt like my character never had as much "oomph" as it did in TL1 :(

Nicolas
07-15-2013, 03:12 PM
I don't think they did have much "oomph". I only say this because my characters never clearly dominated like they did in the first game. But, the best part of TLII is the wonderful choice of pets and finally being able to play with other people. It makes it better than the first in my eyes.

Denmark
07-15-2013, 03:30 PM
thanks for the gift of TL2 Nico

if anyone else wants to gift me games that i'll probably never play (or i'll play them "once I get a new computer" aka the distant future) my steam name is rtryson

there you can see how much of a filthy gosh dang casual i am and how I never play games

Mister Adequate
07-15-2013, 04:00 PM
I actually prefer TL1 as well Aul, and for similar reasons. 2 feels weirdly hollow at times.

Don't vote for your favorite game people, vote for either the one you want to actually buy or the one which is weirdest. Like this time, everyone should vote for Monaco but everyone will vote for Fez even though it was discounted yesterday. :(

Slothy
07-15-2013, 04:02 PM

I normally do this, but I'm a big fan of Natural Selection 2 and it deserves some love so screw you MILF.

07-15-2013, 10:18 PM

This exactly. I was gonna get it and give a copy to a friend, but nobody in the community wanted that to win! It is quite frustrating. Hopefully it'll appear in another sale.

Pike, I kind of love you for this thread.

There wasn't a whole lot that interested me so far this year. And yet I've still spent more than I would have liked. But in the long run its probably worth it. If I ever decided to get these games on a whim in the future, at least I'm not paying full price for when I get around to wanting to play them. Finally get to check out Dust, and Mark of the Ninja. Also FEZ. I like my indie'esque XBLA/PSN type games..

Heads up: today is Encore Day, the last day of the sale, bringing back the most popular deals. Things might actually go on for a little longer depending on what Valve decides to do, but you might as well see if there's any last minute purchases you want to make before life goes back to normal.

Mister Adequate
07-21-2013, 08:08 PM
There are a couple rumors floating around that something's going to show up tomorrow, but whether there's any truth to that and if so whether it's going to be anything of consequences is far from certain.

At any rate as Bolivar says the sale is still up today and there's some good deals here, though I admit I'm surprised XCOM didn't make the top sellers.

What OS are you running? If it's crashing at the beginning movies like it was for me, you can force it into windowed mode and it works pretty well.

1. Go to your KoTOR folder (should look like C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\SteamApps\common\swkotor)
2. Open up the swkotor.ini file in Notepad
3. Go down to where it says Graphic Options and change the FullScreen=1 option to FullScreen=0
4. Then add "AllowWindowedMode=1" underneath
5. Save

It should work after that.

My last post was a little disingenuous. The game itself is fairly decent but it suffers from the always online requirement and the interference from UPlay, both of which make the game highly unplayable. Not the mention the constant security issues that UPlay and Ubisoft both experience on a near-constant basis.

Could be worse Pike. I bought Metro Last Light and the damn thing freezes after the company logo. Tried several things to no avail. I'll trouble shoot more some other time when I'm not tired and it's not late. Between this and Bioshock Infinite earlier in the year, this is a terrible year for me having to troubleshoot PC games. Either one has eaten up more effort than I can ever remember needing to put in to make a game work before. Both of them together is just ugh... :(

The Longest Journey + Dreamfall bundle isn't.

Hopefully it will be, luckily the sale doesn't end until January 3rd so there's plenty of time for it to be.

Quite a poor first day if I'm honest, I'm hoping for Dust to make the community vote but it's most likely going to be FTL, which I already own.

Also keep in mind there are other games on sale that aren't shown on the front page, most of the BIT.TRIP games have quite meaty savings for example and loads of other indie games are 75% off.

Ayen
12-19-2013, 07:07 PM

Spuuky
12-19-2013, 07:30 PM
Since some people may not know about it, this is really the best way to search for games on sale that you weren't already previously considering:

Steam Sales Tracker · US · Steam Database (http://steamdb.info/sales/)

For now it doesn't have a green highlight and a new price tag like the other games that are currently on sale. Hopefully more does go on sale later, I'm unfamiliar with how sales like these work.
Spuuky's post is bang on, that's a really good way to keep track of what's on sale.

Also use the wishlist system if you don't already, stick the Dreamfall games in yours and if/when they come up on sale you'll be sent an email about it and I think you get a notification within Steam as well. For example:

Steam Community :: AssassinDX :: Games (http://steamcommunity.com/id/AssassinDX/wishlist/)

As I type this everything in my list is on sale for up to 50% off, but there are definitely rules to adhere to that are probably already buried somewhere in this vast topic.



Only buy games if they're on sale on the main page, flash sales or community choice. On my list none of them are as of typing, so I'm not interested.
Even then, if it's up for 50% off it might be worth waiting to see if it goes to 66% or even 75% later in the sale, it depends on the game.
If Dreamfall does go on sale, it WILL go to 75% off at some point because that's the price I got it for the summer before last.
Patience is the key, if you do end up missing a deal at any point, get it on the last day of the sale. Steam has a tendency to do a big 'encore' where everything that's been on sale appears again at it's highest discount for the summer and winter sales, so don't panic until it's completely over.

12-20-2013, 06:45 AM
The only game I really want from the Steam sale is Baldur's Gate 2: Enhanced Edition. It's currently 33% off, but should go on one of the bigger sales at some point during the time. If not, I'll probably buy it on the last day or so just to get the 8$ off.

Although FTL is proving mighty tempting. The only think holding that one back is FTL always being on sale somewhere​ on the internet, so I can pick it up pretty much whenever at a reduced price.

Games I got so far:

Electronic Super Joy - I beat this already, but haven't gotten all the stars or unlockable levels. It's a challenging fun little platformer. OST is good electronic music. Certainly worth $1.50. Don't play if you have photosensitive epilepsy. I'm not sure why the checkpoints sound like orgasms.

Recettear - In this game you run an item shop and sell equipment to adventurers. I saw someone streaming it and I liked the sarcastic humor. I'm a sucker for parody. Plus I've read good reviews about it.

Duck Tales: Remastered - Modern remake of the NES game. I've been wanting this for a while, couldn't justify $15, could justify $5 or whatever I got it for.

Reus - I loooooooved Populous back in the day, and I can't help but buy any game that looks even vaguely similar, to try to recapture the magic. God-sims are best sims. This looks like it has some things going for it.

Spelunky for $3.75 is a good deal. That's my go-to game when I'm bored of everything else.

Bumping to say that you've got five hours left if you want Morrowind GOTY Edition for $5 (and yes, you do.)

Save 75% on The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind® Game of the Year Edition on Steam (http://store.steampowered.com/app/22320/)

Hitman Absolution for $5.00. Man that game is good.

Interested in getting Portal 2 for $5.00, but I'd rather play it on my ps3 than my macbook.

Also interested in Don't Starve, would anyone recommend this game?

It's pretty cool. It has a unique style for sure, I'd say it's almost worth getting just to ogle the art in the game. If you get it you should try to survive for a while without looking anything up. There are a lot of little things to discover. It's kinda hard, but the tension makes it fun.

It's a fun game to pick up and play for a while (until you starve to death) and put down for later. I play it in short bursts.

Ten minutes left on Morrowind! Hope you all picked it up if you wanted it.

I've reached a point where if it's cheap and looks at least decent I pretty much auto-buy it. I may not have time to play it right away but it's there in my Steam Library, waiting...

Of course not.

I stumbled into GOG and came out with armfuls of my childhood gaming. Also Alpha Centauri because I hear that it's not bad.

Thanks for the advice! Just heard my buddy just bought so I think I'll check it out there first. Stuck with the Portal bundle for now (1 + 2 for $6.30).

If you have Playstation Plus, I think this game might be free next month. i'm not 100% on that though.

I picked up Morrowind because yes of course I picked up Morrowind. I think this is the first time I actually ever owned a copy of the game myself, and since it is on PC I am excited to dress it up and get the best possible experience I can.

...when I go home eventually and download all the mods. Gonna need a list, Pike (although I seem to recall a list on the android's closet (http://www.theandroidscloset.com/))

Just picked up Prison Architect and Steam Marines because why the smurf not?

I got this at full price when it was released, I'm close to 50 hours in. Suffice to say it's brilliant even in alpha, and the developers release the next version every month (the only exception being in October when one of them had a baby, which is fair enough).

I've spent more on this sale and the Autumn one a few weeks back than I have in the previous four or five sales combined, so far I've picked up:

Galactic Civilizations II
Hotline Miami
Bastion
Anno 2070 Complete Edition
Endless Space + Disharmony DLC
Left 4 Dead 2
The Witcher

And I've also got NBA 2k13 and Crash Time II from Greenman Gaming.

Also, tomorrow's games have accidentally been leaked:

Grand Theft Auto IV 75% off
Alan Wake 90% off
Kerbal Space Program 40% off
Metro: Last Light 66% off
Rising Storm 75% off
Game Dev Tycoon 50% off
Outlast 66% off
Farming Simulator 2013 50% off
Injustice: Gods Among Us 50% off

Gonna get Game Dev Tycoon and Farming Simulator (yes yes, I know), this is getting expensive.

Pike
12-29-2013, 07:58 PM
Absolutely nothing wrong with Farming Simulator.

I'm super stoked about this Euro Truck Sim 2 deal; I think I might have to splurge.

AssassinDX
12-29-2013, 08:00 PM
Haha I own that too, it is brilliant. I'm a sucker for simulator games, but I draw the line at stuff like Woodcutter and Road Sweeper Simulator, that's just silly.

Pike
12-29-2013, 08:03 PM
I looooved the first Euro Truck Sim! I've heard good things about the second.

I would in fact play Woodcutter and Road Sweeper Simulator.

I think that's all I bought this sale, outside of some bundles that I can't remember, but those aren't directly Steam Sale related.

Bought Saints Row IV. Freezes after the company logo videos finish playing, or if I skip them.

I guess it wouldn't be a fitting end to 2013 if I didn't buy a game on PC and have something be wrong with it. Not sure what's up this year, but it's the third time it's happened, and the other two have not been easy fixes.

My policy of not going for huge titles has made this a pretty sparse sale. I try to keep my purchases under, say, $10 unless in the case of ridiculous deals or something I really desperately want. Let me try and see what I've got this time:

Deus Ex: Human Revolution director's cut -- because director's cut fuck yeah
Morrowind -- because I need it for ~research~
Final Fantasy VII -- because I never actually paid for it before and setting up my PC crack is shit
Just Cause 2 -- because $2 and it was fun when I played my brother's copy
The Novelist -- thank you to Nicolas for this one, it's pretty cool if running dodgy on my laptop
Civ V -- because even though I know I'm a disappointment it's still easier to play with my meatspace comrades if they get the simpler game
Tomb Raider -- because I had no plans to get this on a console and it was touted as potential GotY and $10 w/e
Tower Wars -- because if you sweet talk people they will buy you cheap games :)

If anyone wants to get me Fallout New Vegas so I can finally see what all the hubbub is about, I'd be totally okay with that;)

I really haven't gotten too much from this sale. I got FFVII and VIII, Gunpoint, Monaco, and Endless Space (thanks Nico!) I think that's it.

Swapper is a cool game. The designers created models out of clay and video captured them for game graphics. It looks really good. It's a creepy kind of game without being full-fledged horror (no jump-scares or anything). The story delves into certain weird pseudo-philosophical areas which is kind of cool for a video game.

The gameplay is fun. Vaguely of reminiscent of a 2-D Portal, though not really. It's mostly a puzzle game, with a few platforming sections.

My main complaint is the game is short. There are a lot of simple puzzles to teach you the game mechanics that you'll likely breeze through, and then some good puzzles, and that's it. A couple puzzles had me stumped for a while, but I still beat the game in 4 hours. I would've loved a few more hours of puzzles. But that probably means I enjoyed the stuff that was there.

I also bought Poker Night 2 (already had 1 from a previous sale), the only thing they're missing is some sort of multiplayer feature.

Last day tomorrow too guys, even though it say it ends on the 3rd that's literally when it ends - 10am (or 6pm, or whatever your timezone) on the 3rd itself. I made that mistake with the Autumn sale thinking it was going to run right through the final advertised day (and for the sake of comparison end on the 4th) so make sure to grab any last minute deals.

Within the last few hours of the sale I picked up the Tomb Raider pack thing (all 10 games for $14) and Valdis Story, which is Metroidvania + RPG.

01-04-2014, 04:50 AM
If I'd known Valdis Story was a thing I might've picked it up. That description sounds intriguing. Maybe next time around.
