I'm on the fence about Recettear.
Angel CAG on left shoulder - "it looks like it's been on a sale a few times in the past, it'll probably be cheap again if you can hold out, you're not going to play it yet anyway..."
Devil CAG on right shoulder - "BUY THE GODDAMN GAME AND FEED YOUR BACKLOG!!!1!"
Weirdly, that 4chan image above actually moved me towards the game, not away from it. What's wrong with me?
If it helps at all, I find it easier to grab games on deal of the day than on the summer/winter sales. With those I'm looking at like 20 other games and having to make choices and cut some out because I don't have unlimited funds, even at 75% off. Also, I find that more obscure games like this tend to get lost in all the big sale hoopla.
Of course they probably get lost in the backlogs of most people who do buy them anyway.
