So, Steam Summer Sale. Have you been able to withstand the temptation or have you gone all out this year?
I held back quite a bit since my bank account is already reeling mightily due to purchasing tickets, flight and hotel for this year’s Final Fantasy XIV Fan Fest. So this tempered my spending.
While I’ve been tempted by a number of games that are discounted on my Wishlist, either their discounts aren’t quite as deep as I hoped (I know, I’m bad), or some of the recent reviews are less that appealing. I’m really being careful with the early access titles I’m buying recently.
Here’s what I did pick up, however:
This was a game that my sister recommended a while back. I saw it on sale for $4.99 during the GOG sale a few weeks ago and knew that it would be on Steam for probably the same price, so I waited. I’m strange in that I try to only buy older games on GOG, and keep my library of newer games on Steam. I can’t even tell you why. Anyhow, I purchased this game.
I’ve heard a lot about this game (see Almonihah’s review), and have been dabbling with Civ 4 lately while waiting for Civ 6. So at $10 this was a good buy.
Is one I’m on the brink of buying, but haven’t pulled the trigger. The price is right, and I love the art style, but there’s no story mode yet and I’ve read some mixed recent feedback (though it’s mostly positive).
Nah, I bought it.
