Path of Exile is also well regarded and free (never played; assume it has a microtransaction model?)

Very, though 20 bucks could get your everything you could possibly need stash tab wise and whatnot.  To look cool and your going to have to drop more.

Finally another Steam sale and my wishlist is clean again. I actually went farther and cleaned the games not discounted and F2P games. Lots of culling instead of adding for sure.

Quible Sphere: Marble Madness on a neon track.  Run the race and get scored on time, collecting blocks and not dying.  I pretty much sucked at it but I could see it appealing to people who enjoy 2hard4u stuff and who have better keyboard/controller skills than I do.  Has Workshop support on Steam to download new tracks or an editor to make your own.  I got it from Itch.io but it's currently 49¢ on Steam.

 

Record Store Nightmare: Tapper as a shooter.  You're a record store employee during the zombie apocalypse.  Kill zombies shambling down record store aisles as you wait for rescue by flinging vinyl albums at them.  Collect more classic albums and either use them for ammo or reshelve them to get a CD-powered super shot.  Cheapo retro graphics and the controls weren't great but it wasn't the worst thing I've ever played either.  Got it in the Itch.io bundle but is 99¢ on Steam right now.

 

Fossil Echo: Pretty game that is frustrating to play.  Platformer about some kid doing... a thing, I dunno.  Traveling through some land or some bullshit.  Looks really nice but the controls aren't great and it expects a lot out of you.  My initial thought was "Well, I must just suck at these games" (which I do) but the reviews for it also say that it's just not well made on the platforming.  Too bad; if the game play was actually fun, I bet this could have been a minor darling.  You won't want to buy it anyway since it's $9.99 on Steam and isn't on sale (I was playing it via Itch.io in case you've missed the theme)

 

A Hole New World: I believe this is what you gamer kids call a Metroidvania.  NES lookin' game where you jump and shoot and find random turkey legs for health.  The gimmick here is that there's holes in the ground and jumping into one puts you into an upside down underworld map, which you use to avoid hazards or find hidden goodies.  Get it?  Hole New World?  Eh?  Eh?  Anyway, I'm not the best person to be saying if these sorts of games are good or not but it seemed like it was good.  Controls were fine, graphics were retro, when I died, it was obviously because I sucked and not because the game is bullshit.  Steam reviews are generally positive and it's on sale for $2.99

A Hole New World kind of sucks mainly because of that horrible area I got to a few levels in where I needed to take 4 paths through Dragon Skull Heads to get 4 orbs and wow the platforming was infuriating. I kept dying and dying and dying. The platforming controls are way too loose. Honestly the game is high enough quality, but that just made me angry. Game looked decent though.

I didn't mind it, but I don't think I got as far as you.  It suffered the fate of many games I get, where I play them for a day or two and then they get banished to the backburner.

This game is also one of the games that was in the $5 Bundle for Racial Justice that was on itch.io a few weeks ago.  So, you can play it if you already own it.  No Steam key obviously.

Oh, yeah.  I mentioned it for the previous three games but forgot to make it clear for that one.  Basically, I was just playing stuff that I got from Itch.io that's on Steam.  Since that makes more sense to report than stuff you'd have to buy exclusively on Itch.io and no one ever will.

I bought the shmup Q-Yo Blaster on itch.io for 98 cents.  I've been having fun with it this morning.  It comes with a Steam key.

I've never really been good at shmups although they are one of my favorite types of games.  But I unlocked four achievements in 23 minutes during my first playthrough.

More itch.io bundle stuff that's also on Steam...

 

Quench: Be a divine stork and guide an elephant herd (and friends) across the African veldt from the Western Elder Tree to the Eastern Elder Tree.  Hex map based puzzles that require you to use your holy bird powers to revive areas with rain, scour them with wind, shake them with earthquakes or blast them with lightning so the herd can progress to their next waypoint.  Low poly graphics that are attractive enough.  Game play was fine; really depends on how much you like puzzle games.  $10 sale price is likely a non-starter.

 

My Haunted Doll: A "2D Survival Horror" which mostly involves a lot of walking around aimlessly through a "museum" that looks more like a hotel/office building (?) and waiting for the game to say "GO TO THE LIBRARY!".  Sometimes there's a jump scare moment which is undercut by the JRPG-ish art style and overall confused nature of the game.  The few reviews on Steam say it gets scarier later on but I'm not feelin' it.  Can be yours though for only 54¢

 

Mutiny Island: JRPG meets Don't Starve times Pirates!, I guess?  You're a pirate and get kicked off your boat and onto Mutiny Island.  From there, you need to survive, craft stuff, fight off the local fauna and/or hostile people, collect gold, maybe join a pirate crew and eventually find your way to reclaiming the Red Dawn.  It has some promise, although I'm not a fan of the RPG Maker style and the menu/controls/fighting mechanics are clunky.  There's an Easy and Normal mode with Normal including gear loss when you die.  I died a number of times on Easy so good luck with that.  $2.79 on sale on Steam but, eh...

 

Radical Solitaire: Solitaire you can't lose!  And won't want to play!  DOS CGA-style graphics that are aggressively hard on the eyes at modern resolution and a voice synthesizer that hurts your ears.  The gimmick is that you can turn your crappy game of solitaire into an equally crappy game of Breakout and change the card by hitting it with the balls.  Fails to be a fun game of either but it can be yours on Steam for only 92¢.  Don't do it.

 

Isolation Story: Get your COVID games while they're hot!  Survive seven days of lockdown until a vaccine can arrive in this cartoony 3/4s perspective game.  Balance locating and consuming food, water, medical supplies and entertainment while you make choices to talk to your parents, assist people and find lost pets.  A couple different modes where you can either brave leaving your apartment or else go full quarantine and spend a week within four walls.  It was okay; I won my second game, was moderately amused.  For a mere 15% discount and $3.39 sticker price, I couldn't recommend loading your cart with it.

I started playing Resident Evil 7 today after buying it, I'm about 5 hours in. It's pretty good, one of the better survival horror games I've played in awhile. I've played Resi 4, the remakes of 1 and 0, and Resi Revelations 1 +2...7 is pretty easily my favorite of those outside of maybe resident evil 4, but it's kind of a different game than 4. It's first person and more focused on the horror/adventure/puzzle aspects than resi 4 was, although it obviously still has combat. If you like survival horror games I recommend it.

Mentioning RE7 made me think about buying RE6.  I was never a big fan of the RE series but it seems 6 is more pew-pew versus puzzle/exploration oriented.  And I'm fine with pew-pew.

More itch.io stuff that's on sale on Steam...

 

PARANOIHELL: Pixel RPG-Maker looking game that puts you in the role of Erica, a bartender trying to get home to her girlfriend.  Unfortunately, her evening goes bad when a stranger suggests that he's been stalking her and worse when the world starts to literally fall apart.  Survival horror with zombie cops, weird monsters, weird non-monster (?) flayed human dudes, deteriorating weapons, hiding in dumpsters, and giant holes in the earth.  Played for a while, might go back, haven't really picked up on the "story" aside from what I mentioned.  $3.74 on Steam is a steep lift but I'm sure it'll be in a bundle someday.

 

Tonight We Riot: Stick it to The Man in this retro street-brawler that has you reclaiming the city for the people, block by block.  Arm yourself with cinder blocks, Molotov cocktails, wrenches and other stuff and guide your mob of fellow revolutionaries against the armies of capitalism.  You're scored on how many allies you keep alive until the end and, if you fall, you become one of them to continue the struggle.  At $11.69 I doubt anyone is going to buy this now but worth wishlisting or catching in a bundle.

 

Chipmonk!: It's a side scrolling brawler.  You're a chipmunk.  Chip-Monk.  That's the joke.  The joke is that you're a rodent who is a fighter, like an Eastern monk.  You fight mice, shrews, rats and other woodland vermin.  It's... okay?  But this is $7.64 and Golden Axe is like a buck.

 

Christmas Cats Revenge: Inane side scrolling platformer/shooter about a cat that needs to get Christmas presents back from some other cats.  Avoid spikes, sawblades and other traps as you collect gifts and shoot at the enemy cats.  Or just walk through them.  Seriously, they die if you touch them and you take less damage just bum rushing them than you do shooting at one another.  Crude graphics but catchy background music, all yours for only 54¢

 

Darkest Wave: 2hard4me top down scroller-shooter where you pilot your flying sports car and shoot as the usual assortment of flying enemies, missiles, gun turrets and big bosses.  I couldn't make it past the first boss but then I don't think I've seriously played one of these since River Raid.  Graphics, controls and music all seemed up to the task and it'll set you back $1.49 to get your ass handed to you by a giant spider monster.

 

Blast Rush: Another top-down scroller but with a gimmick: your guns never stop firing but are essentially useless.  Your real weapons are your bombs (damage directly in front of you) or steering your ship sideways close enough the enemy to damage them with wind gusts off your wings.  Typical early 90s style arcade graphics and music and frantic action.  I sucked at this one too but enjoyed it more than Darkest Wave.  On sale for $1.99

 

Word Forward: Vocabulary puzzler that has you drag the mouse over letters to create words and clear the board.  Longer words grant you "switches" to change two letters' positions and there's some special tiles to shuffle letters, blow up a single tile, etc.  Attractive minimalist graphics and pleasing music to accompany your brain exercises for only 50¢

Mentioning RE7 made me think about buying RE6.  I was never a big fan of the RE series but it seems 6 is more pew-pew versus puzzle/exploration oriented.  And I'm fine with pew-pew.

I liked RE6, despite my list of issues with it.

 

My issue is this: recycling of areas, enemies, boss-fights...b/c of the overlap; and no real way to skip these encounters you've done in other campaigns - which would probably make the most sense for those not co-oping this entire game (like myself).

 

Anyways, RE6 is big & bloated. With the four overlapping stories - the problem I listed above can become a real issue.

 

An option to say "Skip" certain overlapping encounters/moments - especially when a character is doing the SAME thing from the boss fight - would've been nice. The only time it really makes sense to re-do a boss fight here when you're in a different campaign w/ a different character, is when the boss fight's epic w/ character in different roles and/or positions. Example - In one boss fight, one character is in one specific position (i.e. a helicopter), while another might be doing something else (i.e. shooting at the enemy from the ground, on-foot).

 

The two back-to-back campaigns in the same area almost (some different sections, some similar sections, a lot of the same boss fights)...is almost murder here. Namely, Jake and Chris' campaign back-to-back, IMHO.

 

For me - Leon's and Ada's campaigns were the best. Leon's had the most fun & felt the freshest; while Ada's is pretty much necessary story-wise to basically really put & tie the other 3 campaigns altogether.

 

EDIT:

im fine with pew pew also and picked up re6 a couple years ago thinking it'd be a decent enough zombie shooter i couldnt get through the first hour i thought it was terrible. maybe it picks up or i just wasnt in the righ tmood for it but i regretted buying it

I'll fine w/ all action RE's also.

 

But, I'll certainly take RE4 and RE5 all over RE6 any day.

Ok, strap yourselves in for a bunch of games to spend your Independence Day money on!  What?  Your parents didn't give you a card with money for Independence Day?  That's okay, because each of these are under a buck.  As before, all of these were in the itch.io bundle but are currently on sale on Steam.

 

Rock 'N Rush: Battle Racing: Old school arcade racing combining high speed with machine guns, mines, missiles and more.  Race around a handful of tracks in vehicles ranging from dune buggies to semi cabs, collect power ups and shoot your enemies.  Choice of top down camera or 3rd party rear view.  Was fun and the servers are still running so, for 49¢, this could be a game worth picking up if you have someone to play it with.

 

Ripped Pants at Work: It's your first day at the office and you've ripped your pants.  Clean off, as it seems.  Stealthily dash around your office and out into the city to find a replacement pair before you're caught pantless and fired.  Colorful blocky graphics and gameplay was amusing.  The map doesn't change but there's many pairs of pants to be found.  For 74¢, it could provide you with some amusement for a while.

 

WILOO: Super Mario Bros with a fat kid instead of an Italian Plumber.  Casual side scrolling action with pleasantly cute cartoonish graphics and either infinite lives or just one life.  Collect coins, collect animal suits, jump on faux-Goombas.  Play it in Portuguese if that's a thing you want to do.  May be 2casual4u given that I saw it as relaxing fun for just under a buck at 99¢.

 

Taco Tom 2: I was fully prepared to hate this game.  You are Taco Tom and your goal is to fill yourself with taco fillin's dropping from the sky without repeating any ingredients.  Make a full taco to move on to the next level.  The weird backgrounds are trying a little too hard but I found the game play to be fun and challenging and the story (yes, there's a story) to be amusing.  At only 49¢, this will cost you less than a trip to Taco Bell.

 

The Valley of the Super Flowers: After the last game, I figured I should enter this one with an open mind.  And, guess what?  I was wrong!  This game is garbage!  It's a reskin of that stupid Christmas Cat game except this time you're a flower with sunglasses.  If you're dumb enough to spend 54¢ twice, you could buy both of these shitty platformers.

 

Codemancer: Educational game designed to teach the basics of coding by dressing them up as magical spells.  Steer Aurora through her lessons with her trusty familiar and jump, turn, attack and otherwise code sequences to guide you through each level.  Looks and feels like a kid's edutainment title but I guess it's never too late for anyone to learn for only 99¢

Syntax Error you're a machine for trying out all those games!

Thanks!  You single-handedly inspired me to continue.  Or maybe not.  You'll never know.  What you will know is that all of these titles are also under a buck each making them the perfect deal after you've spent all your money on cheap beer and M-80s.

 

Sokoban Land DX: When this booted up, I saw that it was by the same studio that made WILOO so I was pretty excited.  Unfortunately, this box pushin' game was pretty dull, both in content and the plodding pace with which the characters move.  Push boxes onto switches, open door, rinse and repeat.  Ironically, given the slow movement speed, the game still managed to over-push boxes on a fairly regular basis leaving me to restart levels (there's a "take back" move but it's limited).  There's a co-op mode as well and the game is 99¢ alone or $1.74 bundled with WILOO but I can't recommend.

 

Realm of the Ghost King: A quick turn-based strategy game, you work your ghost (or whatever) through each level, step by step, while being harassed by various enemies each with their own gimmick.  Bats move diagonally across the grid, mushrooms teleport when hit, slimes kill you if you attack them, etc.  Use a combination of moves, special attacks and bombs to make it to the portal but you'll also want to pick up loot and hit the shop along the way.  Dying starts you over, rogue-like style.  It was okay but I don't see myself going back to it.  You can always pay the 99¢ and see for yourself.

 

Factory Hiro: You are Hiro, a 42 year old factory drone berated by your boss and living only to work.  But tonight we riot!  Wait, no.. we decide to get back at him by, uh, working really hard?  A frantic-paced factory game where you quickly work the switches on conveyor belts to ensure that the right products are manufactured correctly and loaded onto the trucks before time runs out.  Attractive graphics and art style and the game play seems good if you're into this sort of thing.  Pull 74¢ out of your slave wages and it can be yours.

 

Spell Casting: Meowgically Enhanced Edition: Ugh, that name.  Ok, you're a cat-person.  You want to be a wizard.  You're in a correspondence course for wizarding.  That's the premise for using your mouse ("wand") to quickly trace shapes and get graded based on speed and accuracy.  Afterwards, you'll do it again without the helpful drawings on your practice sheet. Sort of amusing and challenging and the book pages are covered with pop culture and geek humor jokes if that feels value added.  49¢ is cheaper than a Gun Repair course (that's a joke for the older ones of you).

 

Resistance is Fruitile: A twin-stick shooter that has you and a potential partner fighting fruit-people as you try to get the chocolate back for your wedding.  Ok, sure.  It's okay.  No great but it does what it's supposed to do.  But even at 50¢, I'd tell someone to spend another seventeen cents on Nation Red or some other superior game in the same genre.  Erm, the twin-stick genre, not the fruit-people genre.

 

Cotrio: Minimalist math puzzler.  Drop numbers onto nodes so two points of a triangle equal the third, placing two identical numbers next to one another loses.  Typical pleasant graphics and soothing music but it felt too much like homework for me.  The more numerically minded among you might find this more worth your 67¢ investment.

 

Drift King 2D: We started today with a racing game and we'll end it with a racing game.  Unfortunately, not a very good one.  The idea seemed fun enough: a top down racer where you drift everywhere.  The execution looks cheap, has clunky menus and controls and handles poorly.  Not "lol I'm drifting all over" poorly but just like programmed poorly.  Priced at 74¢ but was even cheaper than that earlier as an apology for the lack of development so don't expect this to get much better.

Yesterday and today, been playing The Walking Dead: The Final Season (AKA Season 4).

Took me around 9h26m to get through the game.

Great season. Best Season since Season 2, IMHO.

Side note: Keep in mind, I loved both Seasons 1 and 2.

It really felt w/ everything here in Season 4, things come around full circle here in a few ways here, without going too far into spoiler turf here.

Yet, TWD: The Final Season (AKA Season 4) still manages to do a few things in the story & gameplay, just different enough (for me)...to keep things fresh enough before the game finishes.

It's the usual TWD and Telltale affair here w/ gameplay, as its gotten more action-heavy since Season 2 - namely, more action elements and QTE's (Quick-Time Events); and less adventure-type of puzzles. Though, not like those puzzles were difficult ever in these games, in these games. More so than anything, these games are about the story, characters & decision-making that will shape the journey itself.

Though, the dev's (TellTale team before the closure; and the Still Not Bitten Team that finished it up, which had numerous TellTale members) did add per episode here a few Collectible items in the game-world, which you can get during the game. And you can put them up in your "room" in this game-world...once you get there to your new "home," find the items, and when the game lets you put them on the "wall".

 

When it's all said and done, I can say I'm very happy with what feel like and looks to be the conclusion of Clementine's adventures here.

Nah.  While there's nothing amazing in the pile of games, but between Planetfall, BSG: Deadfall, Beat Hazard 2 and Basingstoke and then a small stack of other games I don't own, I'm ok enough with it. 

Plus, it's a way to get Basingstoke and only give Puppygames a tiny bit of money. 
They don't like us, so it's ok for us to not like them. https://www.puppygam...t/blog/?p=1574 

Even if they then tried to pull it back in after realizing that in this case it was totally them that was the asshole, trying to couch it was like it was some grand thought experiment and they totally still love customers left me cold. https://www.puppygam...et/blog/?p=1579


Their games are still interesting, but any goodwill I had for them went away long ago and if their stuff doesn't end up in a bundle, it probably doesn't end up in my library, even if they have an interesting aesthetic and their games are decent enough.

Please keep the discussion on Steam deals and video games.  

 

It should go without saying, but do not insult other users.

I feel like I missed something... but it's just fireworks chatter that got deleted. *shrug*


Traken, going to be honest... you had a lot of people lose lots of money because you all wouldn't ban instawatch movies being sold... but this was a priority? Please.
