Yeah, just caught myself up.  Think I may attempt a Swedish campaign of empire building into Russia.   awesome, for real

Diplomatically of course.  Since the newest expansion is for diplomacy.  So guess I should test that out.

Black Flag is surprisingly good.  I think it's the best AC game and would pay $16 for it.

Is there something wrong with Shroud of the Avatar: Forsaken Virtues since it's still in early access and already -50% off on steam sale?

fake edit: actually it says under "About This Game" that it's still in pre-Alpha and that the  game still needs a LOT of work.

What's wrong is that is aeons away from being a full game.
Do you think it will EVER be an actual game?  And good, too?  I have so many doubts.

That was kind of my point. Going -50% off at this point just removed any small hope that I might have had for this game (I had a soft spot for Garriott despite everything mostly due to nostalgia).
I was just interested to hear if someone knew of any new developments that might account for the game being on sale at -50%.

I don't think anyone can properly react to an alpha by Garriott being sold on Steam in the first place.  When you say the alpha is now 50% off, you're very close to ripping a hole in time and becoming your own grandfather.  Is it terrible?  Is it good?  When you discount an alpha on Steam, do you get an imaginary number?

Why am I homeless?  Why do all you motherfuckers need homes is the real question.

Also, anyone try Stranded Deep? Looks interesting.

I have to give DoubleFine massive fucking credit for being such awesome pricks on the Steam forums. I was looking at Massive Chalice and almost dropped the $10 but first hit the forums because... DoubleFine.

A user made a positive video in regards to the game with lots of praise, but the DF devs locked the thread with a "It's technically a banning offense, but that seems a little harsh to me, consider this a warning instead."

What cocks.

It's the same as Tropico 4. But it's good, so if you haven't played 4 then go for it.

Didn't buy a single thing this sale. Nothing really appealed to me as the games I might have bought are either too new to have a decent sale.. or early access and I don't do early access games anymore.

I bought South Park:Stick of Truth and Sunless Sea. I also bought the last things I was missing from CK2. (Un)fortunately nothing else on my wishlist made it to -50% (even Sunless Sea was actually just -40%).

For me, Antichamber and Mark of the Ninja were four euros well spent... but I probably fucked up by getting IWD Enhanced Edition, considering I had the base game already at GOG. #juststeamsalethings

I didn't buy much, but I regret most of it.

  • Child of Light, looks pretty but I don't know anything else about it.  An RPG I think?  Going to be a while before I get around to trying it, probably.
  • DeadCore, a first person platforming game targeted at competitive speedrunning players.  It's one of those "SO HARDCORE" games so it's probably garbage.  Don't know why I bought it.
  • LISA, which looks like it might be the greatest thing ever but I'm not sure.
  • Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments.  Testament of Sherlock Holmes was pretty good up until the story completely shit all over itself in the third act, so hopefully this one will keep the mostly relatively sane puzzles but stick with a storyline that's slightly less bananas.  I also picked up a bunch of those old "Sherlock Holmes Consulting Detetctive" FMV games because I think we had one when I was a kid but I was too young to understand it, so they feel nostalgic but still kind of new.
  • Sunless Sea.  This one I think looks fun.  Haven't played it yet, but it looks really intriguing at least.
  • Transistor.  Heard mixed things about it, and I wasn't a huge fan of Bastion so I put off getting this but it does look interesting at least.  I dunno, I'll give it a shot.

Lets see..

Banner Saga (already installed and beat it, def my kind of game).
Transistor
Divinity 2
Shadow Warrior
Killer is Dead
Skull Girls
System Shock 2
The Fall
Sakura Spirit (  this guy looks legit )
One Finger Death Punch
Blade Symphony
Valkyria Chronicles
Anachronox

Total damage was around $50, little less I'm guessing

I think the dev said something about not putting the game on sale for six months after launch, to prevent customers from being surprised.

That's a weird idea. To me it just seems like a way to make the game have absolutely no visibility.

Was real tempted by White Night, but I'll get it this winter when it's a bit more on sale and I might play it rather than the four games I'm rotating right now. I hardly buy anything when I'm in minecraft mode, anyway.

Another meh sale, It's easier to avoid buying games when you constantly see so many untouched games in your library.

I got

Sir, You Are Being Hunted
War for the Overworld
Shadowrun Chronicles

and a friend bought me Ark

These few plus my backlog should last me til xmas.

You Must Build a Boat
Darkest Dungeon
Nidhogg
GemCraft (Could play on Kongregate again but... 500 achievements!)
eden *
Sunless Sea
Apotheon
Invisible Inc
Prime World Defenders (surprisingly fun)
Wings of Vi
Gaokao.Love.100Days
If My Heart Had Wings
Blade Kitten
Brothers
FF XIII / FFXIII-2 (yeah yeah, I know)
Talos Principal
Grow Home
Hero generations
Titan Souls

Mix of some old ones that I've missed and some newer ones.  Not sure if I have the patience for Sunless Sea but it loos so interesting I'll give it a shot.

I finished up Banner Saga last sale and really enjoyed it.  I think the second one is out soon?  Looking forward to that for sure.  I keep looking at Shadow Warrior (as well as Rise of the Triad) but I just wonder if it can really stand to play that style game anymore.

I was going to buy Akiba Strip but I watched some playing of it on Twitch first and it looked pretty meh.  Seemed like it was just the same combat over and over and it seems like the battles took a really long time.  Maybe I didn't watch long enough.

XCOM DLC
NBA 2K15
Age of Wonders III and DLC
World of Magic
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
The Long Dark

I couldn't decide between The Long Dark and Stranded Deep, so I picked the one that was the deepest discount. Hopefully I made the right choice  Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly? Oh ho ho ho. Reallllly?

I didn't buy anything; new girlfriend means I haven't had as much gaming time as usual plus the ever growing backlog, I suppose. Bought a few full price JRPGs recently for the PS4 and Vita which chewed up my gaming budget; oh well, there's always winter.
