The end of a rather MEH Steam Sale has added to my backlog with the following:
Sniper Elite Natzi Zombie 1 and 2: A gift from my brother, with promises to co-op
Baulders Gate 2: I spent an hour remembering how to play today and remembering I dont like how Spell tossing party members are treated
Riven: Never played it, hope to after I beat Myst, once I start it. I remember it was like 20 CDs..
Classic Naval Combat pack: I’m a sucker for sub games, that I never play.
Also, I finished Gone Home, and I highly recommend it.
RealMyst masterpiece edition: I’ve honestly never beaten Myst. I have fond memories of its release and watching people play but I have never finished it myself.
Tomb Raider GOTY: My brother gifted me with this, I understand it is a prequel? He says its really good.
Mars: War Logs: I eyed it last sale. It looks kinda good. The price was right to give it a try though.
Banished: This I have been hoping the price would drop on. I have really enjoyed reading about it and want to try it. I have been wanting to play a “dwarf fortress” type game.
Goat Simulator: Nuff said, just wanted to pay less for it. PC gaming has taught me never pay more than $10 for a game.
Over on GOG I mainly got the free games they gave out:
Still Life 2
Omerta City of Gangsters
I did pick up Total Annihilation though.
I have to say, I am just about done with GOG. I still have 15 or so games on my wishlist, but I have bought everything I really wanted. All I care about it the old stuff.
In the past few days I picked up:
Betrayer: this looked cool, I like the Roanoke vibe
Slender: the arrival This is my first Slender game!
The Stanley Parable: I’ve been dying to play it and the price was right.
Metal Slug 3 was gifted to me by my brother. I love it on the Neo Geo pocket
Over on GOG I got:
Master of Magic base solely on a list by some guy name Total Biscuit.
Dont forget about GOG.com I picked up:
Fahrenheit (Indigo Prophecy) for $1.50. I remember this for the original Xbox, Ive always been interested in the box art, plus me and adventure games go way back.
When the steam sale updated I grabbed:
Orion: Dino Horde also for $1.50 Two friends owned and it looks fun. For $1.50 I’ll take a chance.
Went back to GOG and got:
Sid Meier’s Alpha Centauri I’m a sucker for 4X games, I wish I would play one every now and then..
Nexus the Jupiter Incident was another 4xish game, this one is more fleet combat
I picked up the following games:
The Witcher: I’ve heard a lot about this series and for $2 I’ll give it a shot.
Hydrophobia prophecy: I know the gameplay is supposed to be balls, but I really like the storyline. I started playing it on XBL
I also picked up today’s humble bundle.
I wanted Space Hulk, Eador and Unity of Command.
All in all, I spent like $9
What to get, what to get….
