Re: STEAM Winter Sale

The Crusader Kings 2 DLC (except the recent expansion) just went on sale at 75% off. Exactly what I was hoping for.

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

I was tempted by Wolf too...but I'm not sure I could stand waiting for the episodes to come out one at a time, so I think I'll wait till the season is complete. The discount should probably be better by then too.

Same goes for Walking Dead season 2, though I'm having a hell of a time dodging spoilers just browsing my youtube sub channel, which seems to be flooded with LPs!

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

All I've bought is Shadow Warrior. I doubt I'll pick up anything else. I have this huge backlog already.

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

My Steam sale is now in double figures quite a few indie games and still I've spent less than a 360/PS4 game would cost on launch or soon after.

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

Got 3 games, only one of them for me so far. I got Dawn of War II: Retribution for two friends and got myself Dawn of War II, which for one reason or another I lacked.

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

The Dawn of War games are good. Nice choice.

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

Damn voting, getting me invested in games and then not winning. Lots of games I'd gladly pay $2 for, but don't want to spend 6. Plus, all these small transactions are starting to add up. At some point, I need to buy the XCOM expansion, which will cost real money.

Re: STEAM Winter Sale

I'm sure I'll pick up that expansion at some point, but not for $20.

If you haven't bought FTL yet, huge recommendation from me.

Yeah I feel the same way. I voted for Dear Esther. Sadly, it didn't win


Did pick up Deus Ex Human Revolution Directors Cut though. Now that Total War: Rome II is on sale for 30 bucks I'm tempted though I have yet to hear great things about the game.

It's weird, but as it turns out it'll actually be cheaper for me to buy the Deus Ex DC after the sale is over. Apparently the sale price supersedes the owner's discount rather than stacking on top of it.

If I'm honest I'm not sure it's something they should even be charging for at all, since I gather all it does is fix all the broken boss fights and add a commentary track.


On an unrelated note, I just bought Skyrim Legendary edition as it was cheaper than getting the DLC separately. Go figure.
