Did my part. 10 games I have been eyeing for quite some time for a grand total of 23. It's 2,3 per game. Love the summer sales.

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.
You chose correctly. So worth it, might be my favorite game that isn't minecraft in 10 years. In my top 10 best games ever list, and possibly favorite rpg ever and rpg was my jam back in the day. So good. I put a huge chunk of time into it, so explorer and adhd friendly, need to get back to it since I've barely scratched the story (I'm not too much futher than the amazing Baron story line).

But yeah, hoping that DLC comes down a bit at some point.

Yah, Witcher 3 is worth it at any price IMO.  If you get into at all, you'll get a lot of value as it can be a ridiculously long game if you let it. Best writing and combat in the series by far.

I'm liking Pillars of Eternity. I'm not sure about all of the tweaks to the standard Infinity Engine system, but it's a style of game I've wanted to play. The f'ing bear is annoying though the first time you see it.  CHUNK CHUNK CHUNK.

something called Subnautica that was a bit of a whim.
Let me know how you like that. Been eyeing it for a while.

It's like Underwater Minecraft, right? That's not a bad thing, that's just the vibe I'm getting from the Steam store page.

It's more like one of those "build a base and survive in the wilderness" games like ARK or something.  Vaguely similar to Minecraft in survival mode, but the bases you're building in Subnautica are mostly prefab pieces fitted together, you're doing way less digging (almost none at all), and the world is pre-generated and static rather than randomly generated. 

Also, the game is pretty focused around non-combat, which really pisses off some of the forum warriors.  There's certainly plenty of fauna out there that will chew YOU up, but since you don't get much for weapons, you're mostly going to be running away, which really annoys some people.  The tradeoff for not being able to pull out armor piercing bazookas is that the monsters in this game are spooky as hell, so I like it, but it definitely rubs some people the wrong way.

There's a shocking amount of claustrophobia and dread for a game that's so colorful and mostly well-lit as well. With some slight tweaks, maybe just a filter mod - it would immediately become one of the best horror games in recent memory.

Yeah I'm enjoying it a lot. It's both beautiful and terrifying at the same time. I have serious inventory management issues in it though.

Chunk chunk chunk as in loading or eating your health? If the latter, you're there too early/ small a party. That's fixable. If the former you're going to hate life when you get to the dragons, trolls and swamp-tree-monsters. They did some stutter-loading on my rig which ran everything else smoothly.

I broke down and bought The Golf Club.  It's a nice little golf game with a course designer.  I figure I'll get a few evenings out of it for $10.

Same. I made some small lockers (just 4 titanium each) I put down in the capsule...which is now listing to port from the weight.

I like the counterpoint of the bright, beautiful setting against the loneliness and terror. Really makes for a nice experience, getting lulled into a nice peaceful exploratory swim and then some horrific beast silently slips up behind you...

The best review I can give is I went to play about a half hour before bed and suddenly noticed it was ohshit o'clock...and still didn't want to shut her down and go to bed.

People are saying the devs are pretty active and putting in content, so this one has a ton of promise. I normally hate early access because promise almost never pans out, but this one is definitely worth it even if I only get a couple more nights out of it.

I'm enjoying Windaward for $5.  I'm not sure how many nights I'll get out of it but it's a simple/fun time waster.  I think it could be even better with a few people but that goes for most games.

And then I delved deep after making a rad suit, two air tanks and some flippers.

7/4 game is fucking awesome, would get eaten by a giant monstar while discovering cool things again.

Haha I did the exact same thing last night. Gonna start building a little base soon and exploring further. Wish it had an in-game map of some kind.

I almost bought 8 bit armies, till I watched some videos of it, better to just buy the C&C from Origin...ugh EA, but Subnautica looks amazing! I'm thinking of getting all 3 Witchers, Subnautica, and Stardew Valley. Oh Wasteland 2 and Shadowrun and/or X-com? I could afford them all, but then I don't have the time to play them all.

It was a lot of fun as co-op for about 3 evenings, then it ran completely out of content. There's no endgame.

I wish you guys would record yourselves playing Rocksmith.  It would be so much fun for the rest of us.  No, really srsly. 

I only bought one and that will probably be it.  The Witcher 3 game.  Well, actually, someone else paid for it.  But it's still mine!  If the expansion thingy goes on sale some time for really cheap, I might get that.  Or shouldn't I?

Totally should. I'm also waiting for that very same thing. I'll be interested to know what you think of The Witcher 3.
