My first blog post, on my new Giant Bomb account, celebrating my first Steam Sale.
PC games comprise the majority of my early childhood video game memories. I was adventuring as Roger Wilco and Sir Graham before playing a Mario or Link video game. After the DOS era though, I completely switched over to consoles and haven't looked back since. Until now.
Indie games, man. Nothing has interested me in PC gaming like the slew of indie games that have hit the scene in the last few years. So here it is:
Steam Holiday Sale 2012
|1. X-COM: UFO Defense|
I thought it was fitting that the first game I bought on Steam was one of the earliest PC games I ever played. Truly, one of the best games of all time, and a steal at $2.49.
I've been wanting to play this game for a long time, and since I don't have an Xbox, I was waiting 'til I had a good TV-PC setup before I bought it. But at $3.49, why wait? And you know what? It works perfectly well on my laptop.
|3. Superbrothers: Sword & Sworcery EP|
I love the look and overall vibe of the game. Other than that, and the weird tweets that it spits out, I don't know much else about it. From what I've heard though, I'm sure it's worth the $3.50.
|4. Cave Story|
Everything about this game seems like it's right up my alley. Unfortunately, playing it on a keyboard is no fun, and my USB SNES controller doesn't quite work with it. I'll have to wait 'til I get an Xbox controller to play it.
|5. World of Goo|
I was gonna buy this on the Wii Shop Channel, but it was something like $10 and I wasn't completely sold on it. For $2.49 though? Done!
The game I'm looking forward to getting the most though, is Hotline Miami. We'll see if it drops close to $5 before the sale is over. Over at GOG.com they're selling the Quest for Glory collection for $5 so I'll probably pick that up too.
What Steam games have you picked up during this year's holiday sale?
