The Steam Winter Sale is live! What is everyone looking to pick up at discounted rates? I'm personally being tempted by Yakuza: Like a Dragon, even though the discount isn't super steep (on sale for $45). Will definitely be picking up a bunch of cheaper games too.
Steam Winter Sale 2020
I bought Prodeus (not on sale), Hellspoint, and Project Warlock.
When I force myself to spend the money, I am thinking of Hades, and especially Wasteland 3. Wasteland 3 has my interest because I haven't played computer based-Rpg's to really have a feel for them. But this seems like a game that would really appeal to me, something different than fantasy based.
I'm bargain diving, looking at a selection of games like
- Styx: Master of shadows (1,99€)
- Sherlock Holmes: The Devil's Daughter (1,99€)
- Thief (2,99€)
- Murdered: Soul Suspect (1,99€)
- Marc Ecko's Getting Up (1,99€)
- Cat Quest (1,29€)
- Reprisal Universe (1,04€)
- Splinter Cell Chaos Theory (2,49€)
- Devil Daggers (1,99€)
- Death's Hangover (0,44€)
- Dungeon Souls (2,15€)
- Heat Signature (2,59€)
- Cradle (2,59€)
- Omnibus (0,79€)
- The Last Door Season 2 (2,49€)
- Linelight (2,04€)
- Chuchel (2,49€)
Bought last year's F1 2019 for €10 to sate my open-wheel curiosity after not having played Formula One games since the Geoff Crammond Grand Prix 3 days. Thought also about nabbing 'art of rally', but it would be 10 euros cheaper on EGS with their adjective-of-choice coupon cascade.
I just started looking, and I'm not sure if this is a me problem or a Steam problem. I'm having a hard time finding games I missed out on, while I keep seeing the same big-ish games I keep passing on, like Master Chief Collection, Sea of Thieves, and Rockstar's games.
Right now I'm at the "Well, I could buy Yakuza 0 again, since it's only $5" phase of the Steam sale.
@clagnaught: Hit the ignore button beneath a game you aren’t interested in and Steam will stop showing it to you. Also go through the Steam suggestion queue every once in a while and ignore or wishlist what comes up. Steam gets better and better at suggesting new games the more data you give it.
@clagnaught: the discovery queue is the main avenue of finding new games for me. And i guess i have quite a beefy wishlist & game history on Steam as well that helps them to find stuff i like.
I went through 3 queues in the last few days and uncovered like 15 games to keep my eye on. I hadn't heard of 6 games before at all. (Medieval Dynasty, There Is No Game: Wrong Dimension, Creeper World 4, Ultrakill, World of Horror, Sakuna: Of Rice & Ruin)
I got a buncha cool shmups, Jamestown+, Blue Revolver, Super XYX, Alltynex trilogy, Danmaku Unlimited 3 (double dipped have it on switch), Hellsinker, Steel Vampire...
... and EVERYONE HERE who can enjoy a little shmuppy action should buy ZeroRanger, go buy it! It's on sale! hell of a game!
Yakuza Like a Dragon is pretty great, the combat does make it feel like a whole party against another party, it's not like the characters are set in concrete between turns, it is more free-flowing than that and works. The story started off slow but it keeps getting more complicated as it goes. These Yakuza games are awesome.
I have too many games to actively search for deals but that didn't stop me from getting Super Meat Boy Forever off Epic for $10, Yakuza Like a Dragon for $45 on Windows Store just for the Xbox Play Anywhere (got a Series S for my bedroom), and that RT enhanced version of Observer on Steam for $10
Observer: System Redux (upgrade from the original release that I already owned)
Samurai Jack: Battle Through Time
Apsulov: End of Gods
Getting Over It with Bennett Foddy
Return to Castle Wolfenstien
DMC5 Vergil DLC
Kinda just expected to get Hades but just kinda went for it anyway.
@colourful_hippie: Make sure you close the App when you're done with SMB https://hothardware.com/news/epic-games-shenanigans-with-cpus
Alright after days of deliberation, I finally pulled the trigger on:
- Final Fantasy IX (never played it before)
- Darkest Dungeon
- Prodeus (not on sale)
- Into the Breach
- Wide Ocean Big Jacket
- Donut County
- Yakuza: Like a Dragon
I just hope I don't regret not waiting for Yakuza to come down in price.
