I know it's a tired sentiment, but man I miss the days when the first ten minutes of the Winter Sale would mean a dozen pages in this thread. Glitches made it exciting. Frequent price drops made it exciting. What it has turned into is the complete opposite of exciting. Sorry, but new backgrounds and avatar frames just don't get me going. 

i know what you mean, but we're the bootleggers and smugglers after Prohibition ended. we long for the days of russian prices because everyone has the same crappy deals. better for everyone overall, boring af for us.

I'd disagree that it's better for everyone overall.  The only "positive" is that Steam does refunds.  Sale prices across the board are worse than before though so the only people who it's better for are people who have a regular need to refund games.

 

That said, I'm sure Valve will say this was their best sale yet, yadda yadda so what do I know?

Digital gaming entered the mainstream with the last console generation. Sales have stabilized across all platforms, now that the dumbass consolebros are buying digital and trading in their physical games to Gamestop for two farthings per letter "E" in the title on every fourth Tuesday of the month when they show their Powar Playa wrist tattoos to the cashier. We're going to have to start buying Choose Your Own Adventure book bundles or gaming on our TI-83 calculators. Those are where the deals are now.

Quern hit a new low price.  I might pick that up.  You know what else hit a new low?  Grimoire.  The game that came out on sale with the promise/threat/whatever that it would be on sale at launch then go back to $39.99 and never be on sale again.  And which sells for $9.99 normally now.  And is currently on sale for $3.99.   Which is still too much.

So, how is everybody's Steam X-Mas Sale 2020 Hauls going?

 

Yes, of course; you can include other places you buying stuff from - Epic; GOG; Amazon; NewEgg; Retail; whatever.

At this point, this is what I've picked up:

 

Ys Origins

Ys I & II Chronicles

Ys: The Oath in Felghana

Ys VI: The Ark of Napishtim

(all from Steam) 

 

Will still pick up some other items during the sale, but this was a good start to the holiday season.

Have GabeN bucks to spend. 

 

All the games I want are cheaper outside of the Steam Sale.

How much you got to get rid off?  There's always a game I want on steam that would be on origin/uplay/etc on other store fronts.

Merry Christmas!  No Steam Haul here yet, might buy some stuff towards the end.  Who knows.  Definitely using my Epic $10 coupon on something, not sure what yet.

I bought Fenyx from Ubi with my $10 coupon (from the Hyperscape thing)

Horizon Zero Dawn from CDKeys since the price was a little lower than Epic+Coupon and it was a Steam key

 

I bought Ni no Kuni II: Revenant Kingdom the other week.  Also 3DMark so toss those onto the list.

 

That's it so far.  Haven't seen anything on Epic to inspire my coupon use but maybe I'll say "Fuck it" and get Breakpoint for $5.  Maybe trawl through my Steam wishlist and see if there's anything I want to blow my GabeN Funbux on.

Have you narrowed it down to a handful of games yet on Epic Store?

What about on Steam?

 

I've been staring down Disco Elysium on Epic.

Merry Christmas Everyone - same here on any hauls, nothing yet. I too been eyeing Disco Elysium as well as Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order on Epic for $13 after coupon. I’m also thinking about Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate from GMG for $35.

Eventually, one of these sales, those Grim Dawn expansions will be more than 30% off. And when they do, i'll snag them. But i'm not blinking until then.

For anyone who’s been procrastinating on Fanatical’s Build Your Own [Insert Genre Here] Bundles that have been going for the past several months, it looks like they’re finally ending in just under half a day.

Does Yakuza Kiwami 2 have more choice than Cyberpunk 2077?

Yep.  Will finally have to pull the trigger.  Was debating the Rogue-like bundle but forgot about it and it expired.  RIP.

I usually use my coupons on Epic to buy/support some indies or smaller games at like $5 a pop.  Looking at stuff like Yaga or Cardpocalypse or Raji.

1 hour or so into this Horizon: Zero Dawn - Complete Edition for the PC (GOG version), since I won it in someone's X-Mas Giveaway on GOG today.

Not gonna' be too much here, being so early into this into this - but I'll give some quick impressions.

Anyways...running here on 10700 KF, 16 GB RAM, 8GB RTX 3070, 1 TB SSD, 2 TB HDD, W10 x64. 60fps @ 1080p all maxed-out at Ultra. Looks great here.

Feels like a mix of UbiSoft open-world type of stuff; Assassin's Creed type of stealth; using bow as a weapon for shooting stuff; and some hunting/crafting mechanics (think AC3); and campfires/bonfires all over the place (think Dark Souls and Tomb Raider reboot) which is used for saving & fast-traveling.

But, first hour or so, right out the gate - the storytelling; world-building; and character stuff seems really strong here.

More to come, when I give this one more time.

One of the few games on the PS4 that I took the time to play, beat, and then unlock everything.  Once the story clicked, it clicked.  Until then, it was a bit slow.

Actual deal that is somewhat interesting.  Turn-based strategy and I notice a lot of the positive reviews are from people with 100+ hours in it.   It does have mixed reviews and it is an early access game, but a lot of the negative reviews are due to a crashing bug which has since been fixed.  At any rate it is 90% off and well below the previous lowest price.

It would certainly appear to have more meaningful choices, regardless of quantity.

I've picked up a few things so far:

 

2 dlc for Vermintide 2 from cdkeys - great game I've been meaning to get back into and they're pretty cheap

Borderlands 3 Deluxe from indiegala - under $35 for the game plus 4 dlc along with some free survival game and a random steam key which ended up being some deviant animu visual novel which managed to sour the whole ordeal.  Haven't heard great things about the story but the gameplay and classes look fun, should be good times in co-op.

 

I'll probably get Labyrinthine before the sale ends due to peer pressure but it does look neat.  If anyone ends up picking up GTFO and is looking for a group let me know, the game is great but we lost our 4th player awhile back and haven't played since they added matchmaking.  Game is really fun with a coordinated team!
