A rumoured leak claims that this years sale starts in just under 3 weeks time. Unconfirmed so far.

Sweet!  Now I can look forward to buying....oh wait, nothing.  These sales have lost all their appeal to me.  Either I already have the games I want, or don't have time for them.  And also the fact that there are 40 trillion other sales happening all the time.

Every year this sale comes up.  Every year I buy 3-4 games.  Every year these 3-4 games sit unplayed due to apathy. 

I think I'm going to opt out as well.

I agree about all other sale, especially since steam is fairly expensive for europeans. I have a few games I'm interested in but I don't expect those games to be cheap enough. Maybe I will buy helldivers together with a friend but that's probably it.

......but we all know you can't buy just one game on a steam sale, it has to be at least 3, probably 5 but that's it.....really

When steam sales were new it seemed like a lot of things were just "worth having" for 5 bucks. Now I've got a couple hundred games in my steam library many of which I have never bothered installing, let alone playing for more than 5 minutes.  Steam sales are really only worth it not if there is a particular game you've been waiting to buy but didn't want at full price. I've pretty much entirely given up on games that just seem worth buying for cheap because why not. It turns out the why not is that I will literally never play it.

There are a few things I might snag. I do tend to at least get an hour or two out of a couple impulse games from every sale, so it's still worth it to peruse for me.

That said, I've pre-ordered two games (Mafia 3 and Civ 6), so my gaming budget it already tight.

Also, I tend to play long and/or repeatable games (GTA V, Civ V, Minecraft). And of course I have a few from the winter sale I really want to put a few hours into (Dex, Eisenwald).

There are only a few I'm looking for that I haven't bought somewhere else. Getting rid of Flash/daily deal sales really killed the Steam Sale fun for me. I enjoyed checking into Steam every 8 hours to see what was new, even if I didn't buy anything.

The only games I buy on Steam sales are items that came out between the last Steam sale and the next one that I thought were too high for the price. Like that Dragon Quest / Dynasty Warriors mashup.

Same here; anyway, got most of the stuff I was interested in on GOG (sale ends in 13-14 hours) :

- System Shock 1 enhanced edition (played it for an hour and was immersed like it's 1994 all over again)
- Darkest Dungeon (argh)
- The Vanishing of Ethan Carter (redux)
- Underrail (awesome Fallout style CRPG)
- Free copy of Spelunky, Gabriel Knight 20th anniversary edition and Dreamfall Chapters (via the XP/badges minigame)


Might end it tomorrow with Grim Dawn.

Regarding Steam, I might purchase some Fallout 4 DLC and, just maybe, the Dying Light Enhanced Edition if it gets a 50% discount (on GOG it's currently 40%...doubt it will go higher than 50 on Steam)

Having spent the last 2 days watching Dead by Daylight streams, I will probably be buying that game on the sale.

Looks decent but very limited in gameplay mechanics and reliant on other humans for an engaging experience.

Is PoE worth $18? I hear a lot of conflicting information about the quality of the title.

Otherwise at the current prices on wishlist items, I have an eye on MGSV, Undertale, The Long Dark, and maybe some of the TellTale offerings.

If you have not played it and want to try a TellTale game, The Wolf Among Us is VERY good.  Easily the best of anything they've done.  Inspired me to read the comics it was based off of, which I found out are way the hell worst than the TellTale video game.

The people who love PoE are super tolerant to unbelievably hacky if not awful graphics. It is dreadful looking. Offensively bad.

I beat Arcanum for the first time last year and played many hours before rage quitting Wasteland 2.  I guess I have a high tolerance of games that look like reheated poo.

Since there's no more dailies you can just wait a few days for the servers to unfuck themselves.

Was sorely tempted by that one (and the bundle with Tomb Raider), but sticking to my initial idea of getting the Assassin's Creeds I've been eyeing. And some of the Rocksmith DLC, of course!

Yeah, this.  I bought PoE for super cheap somewhere, and after installing it I almost thought I had accidentally bought an older original edition from 1998 or something.  It looks rotten and the whole experience was soured.

Yea, the animations, the textures, the effects - all garbage. You really really have to love the spreadsheet part of Diablo to enjoy it to the full extent. I give them props for what they did, they just happened to do a shitty job on everything that matters to me, other than the loot.

It was the animations I hadn't the hardest time with in PoE. Diablo 2 felt substantially more fluid with sprites just due to the great animations. They got the loot right, but actually playing the game is incredibly difficult for me. It's one of the reasons Diablo 3 has always been better than PoE to me, even pre-Reaper of Souls.

I think you're talking about two different PoEs (path of exile vs pillars of eternity), though the graphics comment may or may not apply to both  why so serious?

Yeah, looks garbage also. Plays better than Path of Exile though. Story couldn't get more remotely interested in continuing. The first 10 minutes of PS: Torment was better than 4 hours of Pillars.

Loved poe, its the mix of story, micromanaging combat with a D&D'ish progression system. Its the game I wish dragon age inquisition would have been.

Finally accepted that The Witcher 3 is clearly not going to go below 50% off for years so I picked it up. I'll wait for better than 10% discounts on the DLC though. Also got the new Doom, just for a change of pace, and something called Subnautica that was a bit of a whim.

PoE is crap, the game system is full of two dumb decisions for every good one. If it was $10, maybe. NPCs are crap, stat system is crap, items are crap.
