Thread: Steam Christmas

  1. #1

    Default Steam Christmas

    So it's that time of year again. Almighty lord that saved us from depths of hell, the god Gaben wants his sacrifice again. And that is all our money!



    What are your strategies for surviving this time with the least possible casualities? Do you have your eyes set on some games in particular? What is your limit this year (that you will most likely break anyway)?

    As for me, I am pretty broke ever since I started college and I have tons of games I hadn't played yet so I am not really going to go on buying spree this time around. I have almost 10 euros on my steam wallet from the game cards so I am setting that for my limit. The only thing I really want to go on sale and want to buy isn't even really a game - Influent namely Spanish version since I started to learn Spanish this semester and I need to broaden my vocabulary in some fun way.

    Well, discuss!

    My strategy is simple. It's called not having money.

    If I have any money to spare after Christmas Shopping I'll be purchasing Outlast and that's it. Really depends what I get on Christmas Day.

    Hey can any EoFFers recommend Might & Magic X? It's on my wish list and looks like they stealth-slashed the price 75%.

    I haven't bought it yet. Have you played Legend of Grimrock?

    No although the first one's on my wish list also. Any consensus on which (or LoG2) is better? The closest I've played is Japanese stuff like Etrian Odyssey or Shining in the Darkness.

    Watch ProJared's review of Grimrock 2. I didn't get the impression the games were related, story-wise. And it sounds like they vastly improved with the sequel. Which is probably saying a lot, because the original Grimrock was really loved by old-school vets and fans of dungeon crawler puzzle games

    Unfortunately I know nothing about most of the M&M series, so I can't help you there. But I've always been intrigued by the Grimrock games. So there's that at least. Sorry I don't have any firsthand experience though

    Send me a message on Steam and I will give you a spare copy of LoG.

    Me neither, really, but I prioritize Steam sales above just about anything else in my budget.

    Not remotely ashamed to drop my hard-earned freelancing money on Steam sales. I look forward to these for months
