I bit on Longest Journey and Dreamfall. I've got a HUGE backlog now after this Steam sale. Not a bad thing really.

Oh dear, CheapLikeAFox, really? It's bad enough Motoki's running around the forums with a Railworks 3 avatar. If someone equips a Coconut Queen or Bad Rats image, there'll be no stopping this bad games fascination.

Sweet. Got Dreamfall + The Longest Journey. Been wanting to play those for a while.

Ah, there she is.

Now I'm tempted to change my image. Maybe after I see Dark Knight Rises tonight.

Same. Except I supplemented the purchase with a side order of the Syberia Bundle (1&2) for only $3.74. ;)

I'm wondering about the longest journey bundle too. I'm totally game for the 1st but not sure about dreamfall since it got a lesser score. But then again it helps prolong the supposedly wonderful story. Although I hear the ending of dreamfall is terrible. I read the game was meant to be a trilogy so that sucks it was never finished.

So does Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion come with the campaign that's in trinity or is it a completely separate campaign that doesn't include the original but the features from Trinity?

...Also does anyone else have any good adventure game recommendations that are on sale?


For a start...
Blackwell Collection
Broken Sword Trilogy
Cyan Pack
Longest Journey + Dreamfall

And if you're picking up Still Life 1+2, you might as well get te quasi-prequel, Post Mortem (75% off).

Lots of other great adventure games on Steam (like the LucasArts pack, Sherlock Holmes, etc.) that have seen bigger discounts.


So I just realized some games that arn't on steam that MUST BE ADDED. Little Big Adventure and Twinsen's Odyssey...


Well, they're on GOG already, so a Steam release isn't too far-fetched.

Honestly, the only reason to avoid it is if you would rather get it on gog. Both are great games.

Added both of those. and is it better if i play Post Mortem first than Still Life then or does it not matter?

Also I keep wanting to add Broken sword but apparently everyone in the forums keeps talking about how the new like directors cut takes things out. So may just go with GoG who I think has the original included or is it not that big of a deal as the fans make it out to be?

This is a classy move by the Dead Island developers. From their FB page.

"Steam has put Dead Island in today's Community Choice vote (66% off). If you missed out on the Daily Deal last weekend, here's your chance to vote for another deal. No hats included.

Even if we don't win today's vote, we hope you give the winner a chance!"

Already had those. Syberia is a bit slow, but it a great story. I quit in the middle of the first and keep meaning to go back and finish.

I think that games uses pre-rendered backgrounds which would make running at higher resolution kind of pointless.

edit: That might just be the first one though.

I was thinking the same thing before I bit. But I figured even though some say Dreamfall's ending was "bad", it is a cliffhanger ending for sure. But most people say the game/story/characters are all good-great. So I just dove in .

Also, Funcom has stated in the past that they do plan to finish the trilogy. It's been a few years...sure, but they never scrapped it. They've just been busy with MMO's (Age of Conan) and making a new MMO, The Secret World.

I hope once they get their MMO itch scratched, they go back (if they aren't already) to making TLJ3 and finishing the story. Hopefully, by the time i get to playing and finishing these 2 games, TLJ3 will either be announced...or even released considering the size of my backlog. :lol:

Since ASM has already came out then I think Dredd may be next. We all need to see Dredd. They only need 50 million to make it a trilogy and I want to see Judge Death

Was American Nightmare this price in the flash sale near the start of the sale? $3.74.

I think the flash sales are ruining the Steam sale.
