STEAM Summer Sale 2018


#398

Stuff that didn’t go on sale that I’m keeping on my wishlist for now:
Factorio
RimWorld
Overload

Yeah I suspect that Elder Scrolls 6 and Civilization 7 will go discounted sales before Factorio and Rimworld do… :( (unless you count the early access price points as discounted sales)


#399

Well I picked up 3 Games, think I’m done…

Shadow of War - Gold Edition
Metal Gear Solid V - The Definitive Experience
Firewatch

Very happy with all of the above. :)


#400

Exactly $30…


#401

I’m pretty sure this is what I’ll be getting, just gonna sleep on it a bit first.


#402

Dammit @BrianRubin I had completely forgotten about Particle Fleet Emergence.

TEMPTING ME NOW.


#403

Is so good, you buy, yes?


#404

So far:
Spintires Mudrunner (appreciate the head’s up on this deal!)
ATS: New Mexico DLC
TWS: Great Western Express DLC

Debating on getting a survival game like ARK or Conan Exiles. If I’m mostly playing solo, Conan is the better choice, right?


#405

Conan was getting a lot of negative recent steam reviews, not sure why, someone who plays might want to chime in.


#406

Can someone talk to me about Shadowhand?


#407

I was tempted until I saw this portion of a review. Is this accurate? Sounds lame:

The only problem with all this is that the game PUNISHES you for using your own ships. Yes, that’s right, the game treats you trying to use your own fleet as other games treat ‘cheat mode’. If you beat a level with your own fleet the game will not put a time nor a checkmark next to the level, i.e. it pretends like you didn’t beat it. It is even worse in the campaign where if you use your ships you can’t move on to the next mission until you beat it with the default ships. It is utterly incomprehensible why the game would go to so much effort to make you able to build your own ships only to make it such that not only are never rewarded for doing so but punished for it.


#408

Agents of Mayhem seemed worth a try for $8, or whatever it was. I had to get the deluxe version, of course, to get the Safeword Agent pack, so more like $12. Still.


#409

$12 is pushing it for Agents of Mayhem.

I still think Tom got a secret bribe gift delivery of his favorite snacks from the offices of Volition, before writing his review / making it his personal game of the year for 2017.


#410

I wouldn’t want to talk you out of Shadowhand (if you like these type of card games).


#411

I’m getting Shadowhand mostly to support Cliffski, who I adore.


#412

Ugh I forgot about Shadowhand, hmmm, dare I get it and Slay the Spire? Can I handle 2 card games at the same time? D:


#413

Shadowhand is great, if you like solitaire games. I was also a fan of Regency Solitaire though.


#414

Shadowhand is on my list to possibly pick-up, too. I enjoy the solitaire-style games.

Just bought Glass Masquerade (and finished it, about 4 hours of play) for $1.92 CDN. Beautiful artwork and relaxing gameplay. Thanks for the recommend, @lordkosc.


#415

Haven’t bought anything so far (Alumni Weekend at Lewis and Clark College has occupied my time), but I did take advantage of the 30 for 25 PayPal deal and am sorely tempted to buy Overload for full price. I almost never do that, but the jonesing, it is strong.
Does anyone know if it supports FF on the old MS Sidewinder Force Feedback 2? Pretty please?


#416

EDF 4.1 is my only pickup so far. Only played about an hour but I’m really enjoying it. Now I see why people love the old XBox versions so much.


#417

Yay!!
