Waiting for the Raj of India DLC to go on half price or something. Already spent my budget on The Forest, a Harrowing Log Cabin Horror Simulator.

Just picked up Torchlight II today. Waiting for it to download now... $4.99 is not bad at all.

Also, finally caved and bought Skyrim for $9.99. I've been putting it off for 3 years now. (plus, my wife really wants to play it, so I justified it as a "it's more for her" purchase. (it's not))

I really liked Torchlight II, especially the music. I just have too many games and I can't finish them all!

Someone gifted me Torchlight II awhile back, and I got the first Torchlight game for free as part of a limited offer by GOG.

Yesterday I picked up Transistor, Beyond Earth/Starships, and Sunless Sea, extra Sins of a Solar Empire dlc. All for less than $40.

I'm hoping Offworld Trading Company goes on sale at some point even though it's still in Beta.

And I have a few Sega games in my cart.

I'm waiting for a better discount on this. The combat looks stiff but the game world is badass.

Also got Transistor, Beyond Earth, and Sunless Sea.

I usually don't go in for Early Access games, but I did buy Mini Metro. It looks like something I'd like to support.

Also, it doesn't look like it's on sale yet, but one I'd highly recommend, if you like puzzle games, is Splice.

There seems to be a ton of great indie games on there.

And Offworld Trading Company is half off today.

Don't mind if I do. [Smile]

I picked up Banished and quickly remembered that I get bored of any video game with a steeper learning curve than Super Mario.

I keep buying inexpensive games with good reviews and then finding out that I don't like to play them. Latest is that Binding of Isaac Rebirth game.

These steam sales and everyone's enthusiastic endorsement of the deals have just about convinced me to take off my pirate hat and just get good deals on games at Steam and GOG.

An excellent decision. Not to mention some fantastic games are basically free to play.

A friend of mine just got PA.

Is it really good?

Yeah, so all told, I made 61 purchases during this Steam sale. A lot of indie games, not too many big titles. One that has hooked me here at the beginning is an Early Access game called Plague, Inc. It's kind of the opposite of the board game Pandemic, where you and the other players are co-op in trying to contain and cure an outbreak. In Plague, Inc, you *are* the outbreak. This game is very well done, very polished, and very much complete, for an Early Access game. I highly recommend, if you can get past the fact that you win by wiping humanity off the face of the earth.

I only purchased Heroes of Might and Magic III HD. I attribute my restraint to having a computer that can barely play a lot of these games at this point, and just not having time to play games much these days.

Lyrhawn, if you see this, can you tell what you think of Offworld Trading Co. so far? This is one on my wishlist, and I've been apprehensive about it being in Early Access.

I'd wait, maybe. There's still a lot missing I think before id call it a complete game, and replayability is somewhat limited.

Still, the concept is neat and the graphics and gameplay are fun. It's also very challenging and I regularly get beat by the computer. At th moment it's just a bit simple and there's not a ton to do.

If you catch it really on sale it might be worth grabbing to store for later. I have high hopes for it
