The Steam sale is on! What bargains have you added to your pile of shame?
Steam's summer sale started this past Thursday and lasts until June 30, meaning that many computer gamers have now (virtually) emptied their wallets to take advantage of discounts on games ranging as high as 90% off their regular price.
And people are pretty much losing their minds.
Even I have succumbed to the lure of cheap games, and have been checking the flash sales and daily deals. So what have I bought?
Funny enough...nothing from Steam yet. I checked my wishlist and saw that everything on it was on sale, though nothing at the threshold where I'm ready to add to my pile of shame. Except...I've had The 7th Guest and its sequel, The 11th Hour, on my list for a while. I've always wanted to replay 7th Guest, and I've never played 11th Hour, as I could never get it running stably on my machine at the time it came out. So when I saw they were half off, it was tempting. But as I was talking about it, I remember the games were originally on GOG before they were on Steam, and it made me wonder how much they were there...
Lo and behold, 7th Guest was on flash sale for $1.49 at that very moment. So hell yes I bought it. And 11th Hour was the same price as on Steam, but DRM-free, so I got that too.
So that's my shopping tale. How about you? How much has your backlog grown?
I haven't even played half the games I bought from the last Steam sale. But how can you beat these deals?!
I'm kicking myself for missing out on Long Live the Queen not once, but twice now, as it was a flash sale again on GOG yesterday but I didn't get to a computer in time to buy it. Because I realized I was being silly about the forty cents.
- The 7th Guest (GOG)
- The 11th Hour (GOG)
- Gone Home (Steam)
- Fahrenheit (GOG)
- Long Live the Queen (GOG)
I think I'm good for now, though every time the Blackwell Bundle comes across I have to tell myself "wait until next year, it'll probably have all five games in it by then..."
Of course, like most games I get during a Steam sale, I haven't even come close to playing them like I always convince myself I will.
