Steam Sales, man. The twice year game buying binge.
All in all, it was a fun year. My friend and I played a game with the sales, I managed to get a badge (and gave trading cards to others), and bought more games than a (then) unemployed person should. Ah, well, I have a lot to keep me occupied! Here’s the rundown of what I got this sale, and my thoughts.
Assassin’s Creed: Revelations
I still haven’t finished Brotherhood, whoops. Still, I love the series, and I’m fairly confident that I’ll be pleased with Revelations. Even if it’s only half as good as ACII, I should be happy. Assassin’s Creed III is on the top of my list of games to get at the next sale. It was still a bit too pricey for my tastes this sale, but I know I want to give it a shot, despite it supposedly not being as good as its predecessors.
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare
My friend and I had a game; every time a game we voted for won a vote, we had to buy it. I cheated once by not buying a game, but then I had to buy another. Really, this was just so we bought more games. I actually enjoy Chivalry, for what it’s worth. I’m not a big multiplayer gamer, myself; I like story. However, Chivalry’s a fun take on the first person multiplayer action game, and occasionally I’m not half bad at it. I’m mostly bad, though, so we’ll see how much more I play of it.
See last What I’m Blanking entry. But this is a seriously fun game. I didn’t know what I was expecting when I started it, but I’ve gotten into strategy games now, I guess. This is completely addicting, and I’m very glad I bought this.
Deus Ex: Human Revolution
People told me to wait until the new edition came out. However, this game was $3! I still haven’t gotten around to playing that much of it, but I’m really trying for maximum stealth and minimum kill. As someone who’s terrible at stealth games, this is making my game a LOT longer!
Dust: An Elysian Tale
I’ve wanted this game ever since it was an XBox exclusive; I’m SO glad it got ported, and now I got it! The art style’s really nice looking, the action is fluid and fun, and it’s a really nice game.
Fallout: New Vegas
This is one of those games that I really wanted to pick up during this sale! I really like the post-apocalyptic setting and the gameplay, and it’s a really fun game. To be honest, I find the Fallout games a bit difficult to marathon play, but I know I’ll be coming back to this one.
Final Fantasy VII
This was my punishment for not buying a game. I haven’t tried it yet, but this is one of those classic games I’ve never played. So I’m pretty excited.
It’s Oregon Trail. But with zombies! Basically, that’s the best description for it. My friend and I both bought it and named characters after each other. The only thing I dislike is the shooting mechanic, but it’s ultimately a fun game that I got for pretty cheap!
Seriously, it’s Skyrim. But I’ve had a lot of fun with this one, as well; see one of my previous What I’m Blanking posts.
I bought this again because of that bet my friend made. This is frustration: the game. Basically, look up any gameplay vid of it, and you see why. Not sure how much of this I’ll play, but I got it anyways.
