I ended up buying way more than I planned on.

 

Total War Warhammer 2: Vampire Coast (great game)

South Park the Fractured But Whole Gold

The Room 1-3

Tick Tock a Tale for 2

Orcs Must Die 1 and 2

Grim Dawn Ashes of Malmouth

Golf It!

Dark Souls Remastered

Monster Hunter World

 

Most of my purchases were for co op purposes and then I got peer pressured into buying Monster Hunter World the last night of the sale.  Only one I've put any time into so far is Golf It! and its great.  Five people miniature golfing with collision turned on is a good time.

Game was still every bit as good as I remembered (and Demon Ruins/Lost Izalith was still every bit as awful).

Loved the game, but I couldnt agree more. Felt unfinished and bad design. A shame really as the game is great, and it hooked me up with Souls games, even Lord of the Fallen, Nioh, Ashen (loved it), Surge.

First Steam sale where I didn't buy a thing.  I stopped looking at the site after the second day when the fiasco of an "event" obviously wasn't going to be worth my time.  Last summer, there wasn't much I wanted in the AAA (or even AA) arena but I bought a number of interesting or quirky looking indie titles but I couldn't find anything I wanted this time.

 

Someone gifted me that Russia Battlegrounds game and we tried it last night.  It was awful.  Just awful.  Shitty sprites and about six repeating sounds in an infinite loop and bad controls and not at all fun to play.  There's amusing low-rent battle royale games out there like Bean Battles or Cuisine Royale that are actually fun for what they are.  This one wasn't worth wasting your time on, much less your money.

Don't those analog sticks apparently start drifting after a while? Good luck replacing/fixing it once your warranty is up. Maybe if it was $50 cheaper, but even with the built-in D-Pad, it looks like you're losing out on far too much to make it worthwhile.

 

The turquoise one is adorable, though.

 

Loved the game, but I couldnt agree more. Felt unfinished and bad design. A shame really as the game is great, and it hooked me up with Souls games, even Lord of the Fallen, Nioh, Ashen (loved it), Surge.

Yeah, It's way too linear of an area and devoid of any truly interesting encounters or moments. Bed of Chaos is also the worst boss in the entire game. Most of areas post-Lordvessel are probably too linear to be honest, although for as much criticism as the second half of the game does get, I still really enjoy and appreciate the atmosphere of the Archives and New Londo Ruins.

 

Also, I should probably give The Surge another shot. Tried it out on Game Pass and didn't really care for it after an hour (level design in particular feels rough and cramped, probably because the Souls series has spoiled me and set the bar too high).

I bought Yakuza 0 and my rationale was that I wanted to support the devs, not cause I honestly think I will play it.  This is what it has come to for me.

PS4 controller is the best controller so not sure why you're trying to place the blame there.  The blame lies all on the game which takes like 2 hours to even get going.  10 minute cut scenes - learn how to karaoke - 10 minute cut scenes - learn how to fight

 

It's just boring.

I know it's popular to dump on Steam after each sale.

 

So let's dump on Steam. They so richly deserve it after this wake of a sale.

 

- Sale event is so convoluted they are forced to backtrack, try to re-explain, simplify, and hand out free shit.

Multitudes of people deleted an enormous number of games from their wishlist in the misunderstanding (A very big deal to developers who see that as a way to keep connected with potential customers). In the end, very little changed... it was still a hot mess.

 

Changing rules during the game not only reaffirmed their initial stupidity, but angered those that thought the next days' performance spike for non-Corgi teams was dishonest. In the end, it did nothing. Bad PR all around.

 

- Near zero incentive to interact with anything in the store (other than tiny "challenges" introduced in their attempt to correct course)

After dumping your wishlist and discovering that past achievements gave you more points than you could reasonably ever hope to use, why bother trying to get points by playing games or trying out their featured free-to-play games?

 

Also... they abandoned the discovery queue that they worked so hard on (you know the one that grew wishlists?).

 

- Purchase incentives not easy to get.

The five dollar coupons they were handing out were locked behind a laughable 15,000 point wall. Virtually impossible to get unless you'd already spent loads of money on Steam recently. 100 points a day wouldn't even get you close. And if you need to put in that much effort to get a five dollar coupon, I'd hardly call that an economical stimulus. Why so hard? Cause Steam was paying for them. Cheap motherfuckers.

 

And what else are you going to do with those points? Boost your profile number on a page no one ever sees? Buy ugly emoticons and backdrops?

 

- Abandoned the card market.

Not that I care a lot, but I'm sure cards were a decent boost in income, not only for Valve, but also for developers that saw a massive boom from people buying cards to complete sets and earn more sale cards. I can only guess there was no similar spike during this sale.

 

- Mediocre prices.

During the sale, I checked quite a few of my wishlisted games and it wasn't uncommon for them to have been at a lower price sometime in the last year. I think, in a way, it confirms that they don't mind having their games on a deep sale for a few days... just not for nearly two weeks. Steam has got to reconsider their stance on Flash Sales, Daily Sales, or whatever you want to call them, during a major event. Yeah, a bunch of developers are going to get left out, but I think there needs to be a reason to visit the actual store more than once a fortnight.

 

tl;dr - bad game, bad prices, bad sale

Its certainly the best Playstation controller ever made... but still crap compared to the last three generations of Xbox controllers.

Nope.  Not even close.  The only thing XB controller has on the DS4 is connectivity.  The joysticks are better on the DS4, feels better in your hands, etc.  I own both.  I love my Minecraft Creeper controller, but to act like it's vastly superior is just laughable.  I will say that the bigger your hands the more you'll lean towards the XB controllers.

I ended up buying stuff after complaining there was nothing I wanted because I always do that.  More importantly though, before the sale I was gifted Jurassic World Evolution by a kind person from here; and during the sale I was gifted Bloody Spell after I saw it mentioned in one of the reddit steam sale threads and expressed interest in it on a discord.  Nobody had heard of it or played it but after some digging and watching streamers playing it, a friend bought a copy for himself and also for me, so those two games are currently at the top of my list of games to play.  

 

Sorry Inmate, I genuinely meant to fire up Death's Gambit and give you an opinion on it but then I genuinely meant to play it when I bought it months ago too, so... maybe before the next sale?   I did install it though, that is a start..

 

Now for the stuff I bought myself and therefore will never play:

 

I picked up a few bits of DLC for games I already had and the DLC for Kingdom Come Deliverance because of the monthly bundle.

 

868-Hack which matched its all time low and doesn't go on sale that often.

 

I finally bit the bullet on Touhou Genso Wanderer -Reloaded-,  a rogue-like that has a lot of mechanics that sound interesting and is compared favorably in some ways to the Shiren games which are wonderful (and need to be on Steam) but which also has one quality I strongly dislike (all characters/monsters are girls... I like some monster variety)  but ultimately I decided if I liked the mechanics I'd play it enough that the monsters would blend into the background.  After a couple hundred hours running into a Balrog in Angband does lose the wow factor anyway.  If it annoys the shit out of me it can be my stupid purchase of the year month last few days.

 

Been meaning to play the Trails in the Sky series for ages so I picked up TiTS 3 and vowed to actually play the damn games.  Same with Banner Saga 3.

 

I also picked up TouHou Makuka Sai ~ Fantastic Danmaku Festival, a shmup that I do not already own elsewhere so it will actually get played soon enough that I'll know if I want to get the sequel in the next sale.  I picked up a few cheap games that actually seemed to be well-received like Bean Battles, Mushroom Quest, Neo Neo, Feral Fury and that dog golf game because why the hell not.  Tee Time Golf was a whim purchase because people were comparing it to another casual golf game that I had a lot of dumb fun with so again why not.

 

Monolith I recently played and liked it a lot so it was a no-brainer, Flood of Light and Lethis - Path of Progress have been in my cart the last four or five sales and I keep not buying either because they seem like interesting but flawed games, I decided this time to just buy them and satisfy my curiosity.  Soda Girls, Strike Vector EX, A Good Snowman is Hard to Build and Recursed were similar, tired of waiting for bundles and would buy them eventually anyway.    Psycho Starship Rampage just looked weird enough for me to want to try it.  

 

Neoverse because nitro = bad influence, Everspace because it seemed like the right price plus you can only be told "get it get it get it" so many times before spending the gabenbux is just easier than getting stupid Discord notifications, Heat Signature because I've watched it for a while and it was in one of those "complete the bundle" packages that dropped it low enough for me to not care if it ended up being in the next Monthly or something, GRIDD: Retroenhanced because I'm pretty sure it will let me relive that time in my early twenties when I stayed up watching a Miami Vice Marathon for way too long while on a trip to another plane, it changed me man.  Either that or because I am a sucker for that a game that looks like someone wanted to make it in the 80s but the technology wasn't there just yet and still they never gave up and finally here it is.  It looks neat.  

 

Might have bought something else, that is all I can think of.  Oh... Gris, Along the Edge and Ghost of a Tale from Nuuvem.  Gris is another game I wanted to fakey but decided to wait on a bundle then caved anyway and bought it and will now play it sometime after it gets bundled.  

 

At the end of the day?  If I didn't often suffer from insomnia I probably wouldn't have bought anything.  

 

 

And yes I have work I should be doing but don't want to do so I decided to make a toaster-length post about my Steam purchases instead.
