It's not a good Saints Row game. It is a fun superhero game.


That's pretty apt.

Vampire: Bloodlines 75% off if you're one of the poor souls who hasn't played it.  I grabbed a gift copy.  My Steam inventory is a wonderful catalog of games that I think are sufficiently good to invest in gift copies of even if I don't have an immediate recipient in mind.

Is that the old Masquerade game or something newer? I read somewhere years ago that it was good but never bothered to check it out. Maybe I will

It is the old game. It is very good, but it's also very old smiley

I still rank it up there with Torment.  It's well worth getting, then applying a fan patch.

Hahahaha!  I'm really good at this!

100% this.  The game holds up.  I still don't know why Torment and/or Masquerades hasn't gotten mobile gaming or $15 console re-release.  The games/stories at the core are fantastic.

I pulled the trigger on Walking Dead Season 2 since it was 75% off and I enjoyed the first one so much.

Then I added Endless Legends based on the recommendations here and Sunless Sea since it was interesting looking, even though neither was at a max discount.

Who have I become that I don't wait for 75% off for games?!  Brownsville is so boring I'm shopping on Steam on my phone for games I can't even play.

Looks like I missed Vampire. It's back to 25% off now. Was it a flash sale? (odd, since it's on my wishlist and I usually get wishlist spam from steam).

Hmm, Mark of the Ninja and Ziggurat (looks like a worthy successor of Heretic) on the 12-hours sale. Tempted.

Mark of the Ninja for $3 is awesome. Great sneak around platformer.

Blackguards for $8 is a great price too.

Reply #117 on: December 24, 2014, 11:52:34 PM

I... didn't like blackguards. I can't recommend it. The game starts out OK but there's no combat fast-forward / speedup and by the end you're hit with retarded amounts of status effects and knockdowns out of nowhere and unless you built your characters a specific way you can't really progress. There's a huge difficulty cliff around the 5th act which just made me uninstall. I guess since I played 15 hours or whatever I got my $5, but it's disappointing that I'll never finish it.

Sleeping Dogs is on sale for 7 more hours at 66% off the Definitive Edition (think I saw someone was waiting for that one).

ARMA 3 is 35% off.

I'm tempted to buy The Secret World.  WoW has gotten me the MMO itch, but it isn't satisfying it for me and from some gameplay videos I think I'd enjoy the quest structure in TSW much more than Wow's.

Yep, that's the standard discount that will run throughout the whole sale; waiting for the "meatier" one that, unfortunately, won't likely go higher than 66%

I was really enjoying myself but also got stuck a handful of hours in and lost interest. Again though at 5 bucks.

That's the lowest I've seen Stick of Truth. I wanted to check the price from Sony so I could play it on my tv. Think ill by it here and run he 50 foot HDMI cable from my PC instead.

Right now you can get Castlevania: Lords of Shadow Ultimate Edition from Amazon - if you are in the US - for $7.50, which gets you the Steam code (Online Game Code | DRM: Steam). And #2 is $15.00.

Really digging Ziggurat.  Lots of unlockables and enough variety to keep it fresh.

Waiting on Mordor or Divinity to drop lower than they have thus far but those may be a summer sale pick-ups.

I'm tempted to buy The Secret World.  WoW has gotten me the MMO itch, but it isn't satisfying it for me and from some gameplay videos I think I'd enjoy the quest structure in TSW much more than Wow's.

TSW is a pretty damn awesome adventure game, with a thick (but fairly unique) RPG layering that may or may not be acceptable, combined randomly with MMO elements that may or may not suck horribly.

If quests that require you to think, or alt-tab and learn shit, sound interesting (in the context of your standard MMO), pick it up.  I love it as a single player game...I just wish it was actually a single player game.  

Semi-endorsement:  I still remember plenty of characters and zones in TSW to this day years later...I remember two characters and zero zones from SWTOR, a supposedly story-based MMO released around the same time frame, and one which I actually spent more time with.

I plan to buy that, but not just yet. A bigger discount would have gotten me over the line, but I've spent enough for the moment on de-discing and random interesting stuff that I may never play.

Yeah that sounds pretty interesting.  I flinched and picked it up right before the sale ended (got the massive edition for $20) cause I have a feeling I'm going to get bored with WoW prior to the next time it'll go on sale (charts showed it didn't go on sale that much very often).

Any feedback on Life is Feudal?

The feedback is: wait! While there's definitely a lot of cool ideas and implementations, it's just another Early Early Access with a myriad of bugs, half-developed systems and things that need ironing out. This is not to say that you can't have fun, with many of these projects the jankiness that affect all players is often part of the fun, but in general you will most likely just goof around for a couple of days and then set it aside for 12 to 18 months waiting for major patches and updates. One thing that is SUPER IMPORTANT is the server you choose. They have all sorts of internal rules and there aren't many ways to find out what those are yet. Some things are code-enforced and some are just policies that you have to go to the server website to check. LiF is very community centered and this is and will be its strenght. But at the same time it is what makes the server selection very tricky and can totally make your first experience miserable or glorious.

I got it with some friends and we had a real blast. We started working on our village and that took a few days of working together in a way that we haven't experienced for a while. Then we almost went to war with a neighbouring village until the knights of the servers (older people who actually built a castle and have better weaponry) came in to settle the dispute in what turned out to be very RPG-y whether it was anyone's intention or not. Then, a few days later, people started leaving the server for no known reason, so our interested faded. Great stuff though.

So, for me it's already a wrap: I decided to postpone the purchase of both Arma 3 (I'll wait 'til I purchase my new rig next spring) and This War of Mine (which I gifted to my father together with another copy of Paper Sorcerer).

So, Xmas sale alone, I bought:

- Prison Architect
- The Wolf Among Us
- Mark of the Ninja
- 2 Talisman Xpacs: Reaper and Frostmarch
- Instant Dungeon (http://store.steampowered.com/app/326720/ hell yeah!!!  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly? DRILLING AND MANLINESS)
- Cities in Motion 1 (free through Paradox latest newsletter; DLCs not included)

Grand total (gifts not included) of 16,39

Quite satisfied about my december purchases, if I also include the autumn sale ones (Papers, Please; Paper Sorcer; Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons)
--------

Considering my backlog, Pillars of Eternity on the horizon, Elite Dangerous and Football Manager as " continous side games" while fooling around with Star Citizen modules (hoping to get something better out of them once I assemble my new PC, as stated above), I'm pretty much all set 'til Xmas '15  why so serious?
