Steam's Summer Getaway Sale

Recommended Posts

I need a consensus. Should I pick up DMC?

I wouldn't. It's been on sale for cheaper than 25 bucks before I'm pretty sure

I'd put it off for another month or two and it'll be on midweek madness for like 10 bucks

It's not, and you should be ashamed to even say this.

We had this discussion before in the dmc thread. You're still wrong, and DmC is still a shitty game not worth $5, made by a dev team who openly mocked and derided anyone who voiced a complaint about the game, and produced a shitty, dumbed down 12 year old's version of what's so cool and awesome and I am genuinely glad it tanked in sales.

Slightly more on topic:

The current crop of games for sale is pretty good. Evoland is worth about $5, although I'd still call it a bit odd. Gunpoint is worth every dollar of entry. Fallen Enchantress is terrible, if you haven't played DXHR by now what is wrong with you, and don't buy Tropico 4 without getting Modern Times, at least.

I have some extra dollars in my steam wallet, just browsing around for something cheap to buy. Anyone know anything about the Tropico games, and if so which one is best? Most recent one is the most expensive, so I'd moreso be interested in opinions on the first 3.

I generated me a $60 card so I could only spend that much, and pretty much pay the price of a game from Gamestop. I got:

Chantelise

Deus Ex: Human Revolution

Dust: An Elysian Tail

Eufloria

FLY'N

The Last Remnant

Magicka

Recettear

Rock of Ages

Civ V Gold edition

Thomas Was Alone

I think I have around $5 left on the card, so I could get one more game. I'm waiting to see if Don't Starve gets down to that.

Organ. Trail. If you had Oregon Trail in the computer lab at school it's like that... but with zombies.

Also has a ridiculous 15 card collection.

So far Ive picked up

Bastion- Yet to play it but people appear to enjoy it.

Waves- This game is a pretty fun arcade time killer, its also really pretty.

FEZ- This game is so cool, im only maybe 15 mins in and I can tell that its going to be a fun game, There have already been a few good moments where I sat, smiled and thought wow that was kidna cool, or been surprised by an reference to other games.

Seems like i'm done with buying things. My haul:

Deadlight

Dishonored

Doom 3 BFG Edition

Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition

Fallout: New Vegas

Hotline Miami

Mark of the Ninja

Quite a sober amount of games. Alot of the games that were on sale didn't appeal to me, or were still too expensive for my tastes.

Bah! I bought Fez last night during the flash sale and to my dismay I find that it CTDs upon open...

I'll never understand how I can run Fallout and Half-life but this manages to overload my laptop.

Yeah, my friend told me that I was better off owning Dark Souls on PS3 when I lamented I didn't wait to buy it on Steam. Now I'm glad I didn't.

Eh~, I have it, and it's not that bad. I don't like GfW Live that much either, but you doing yourself a great disservice for not playing it if you don't already have it.

Seriously, unless you have a certain preference to a particular system. Just punch yourself for not owning this fantastic game.

Also, I am on the fence on getting the Last Remant, I have 30 bucks on my steam wallet, and I don't know whether or not to it save for something like DMC, or for some other cheaper game as soon as they go down in price again...
