Hey, thanks for the heads-up on the Ys games, everyone! I would have kicked myself for missing out.



^_^ It's the best thing I like about this thread. Pointing out and recommending titles that would have escaped notice.

If you want more of a turn based RPG with a party Drakensang: The River of Time is good and is 75% off at $4.99 but there's no rush on that since it will be that price for the duration of the sale.



I'd point out that you can pickup Drakensang Complete: Original + River of Time + Phileasson's Secret for $10 on fleaBay. I did. The Special Plastic Edition (retail) is DRM-Free.

I should just wait for Torchlight II to get to $4.99. Someone tell me to wait.



You should not wait. Try to get it for $7.50 in a 4-pack. Steam group buy thread is here. If not it's well worth $10 (and I feel worth full (low) price of $20).

Yeah well us PC gamers are also kind of ghettoized to a couple of threads while the console people have the whole rest of the board to spread out in.

That and they seem to be holding onto physical disc media for dear life and view digital downloads for junky little games that no one wants to pay $1 for.



Small hearts. Small minds. Small wallets. :lol:

I think it's because we're more open to discussing ridiculous stuff. Those Xbox guys are like "lol wut these grafx r like from 2009, whers the assult rifle" and we're all "fuck yes Mission Runway Coconut Queen Bad Rats crossover! BUY ALL THE CHEAP GAMES"

Spoiler


Nice graphic! Digital distribution has really helped us as a community to branch out into all sorts of genres. (As it did with music.)

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

I can't decide which is more shameful, buying it: or owning it.


Buying it, definitely buying it.

To be honest, unless some games go to historic lows (Over 75% off), there isn't much that would be "please take my money". The combination of a large backlog and lots of indie bundles really chopped down what I'm willing to spend money for. It isn't like I'm taking my money elsewhere for PC games....


For me, I think it's just a matter of learning my lesson. Too many times I've jumped on a sale, thinking it was a great deal, but the game ends up on my backlog and inevitably goes on sale for much cheaper before I get around to actually playing it. I'm no longer looking at sales in terms of "How good of a deal is this?", but in terms of "What are the chances this will get discounted lower before I play it?" I'm more discerning and less impulsive than I used to be - and some of that may be because of the backlog, but I think some of it is also the fact that deals on Steam (particularly extended sales like this one) are far more frequent than they used to be (the December sale used to be the only really big sale each year, but now there's practically one every four months).

I told myself I was going to get through more of my backlog before this sale, because I do like being able to stock up when games are cheaper, but I really didn't make much progress, so the only games I'm really looking at on Steam are ones I'd immediately move to the top of my backlog, which really isn't much.

Ooh, this description makes the Ys games much more attractive to me. The only Ys I played was the 3rd game on SNES, which I did feel skewed toward grindiness. If I were to only invest my time in on one Ys game, should I get Origin or Oath?

I would say both but if you want one, go for Oath now. Origin later.

Yep. As it stands I have more than enough games to last until the next Summer Sale. Not going to get anything unless it hits my targeted price point.

Oath in Felghana is the 3rd Ys game. Well a remake of it anyway.

Finally picked up the Ys games. I don't know when I will get around to them since I'm currently playing KOA: R.

edit: I'm extremely disappointed that Revelations 2012 removed the dance key. Since I'm terrible at FPS I at least like to run around dancing while I'm mauled by waves of Mayans.

It's still there in the options, but it does nothing. What a horrible tease.

I've just played Revelations 2012 for the first time ever. Quite frankly, I'm disgusted. Astonished. Taken aback. Appalled. Flabbergasted. Stunned. Speechless. Mortified. Petrified. Stupified.

I actually enjoyed it.

I liked the shotgun until it stopped firing on auto.

I actually own the non-Steam version but will be re-buying the Steam version anyway. It's the cheapest it's ever been on Steam, at least TRoT is, and I think there's a good chance this game will disappear off of Steam at some point.

DTP sold the US rights to distribute it to Valusoft because they are Germans and didn't really get that they don't need physical distribution here here in the US because boxed retail (outside of Blizzard games) is dead. They did this with a bunch of their other games too like Venetica and Grey Matter.

Recently DTP came to their sense and wants to get their games on Steam but Valve won't give them the time of day so they made them go to Greenlight and their games aren't doing well there in the popularity contest.

Right now the Drakensang games on Steam are only available in the US region under Valusoft. Valusoft already got unloaded once by the sinking ship that is THQ so who knows what will happen to their or if the US rights will revert back to DTP and be stuck in Greenlight limbo forever or what.

TL;DR - I'm getting Drakensang TRoT on Steam because I like all my games attached to my Steam account and I'm afraid this game will get yanked at some point.
