#11884452 Steam Deals Thread V13 ~ Star Wars Empire at War $6.80 | The Legend of K...

Posted by imac2much on 30 June 2014 - 07:57 PM

I bought a bunch of stuff.

But I'm playing Shovel Knight on 3DS.

Somebody slap me.

 

In other news, I just finished my move to my dad's house!  I never thought I'd be living with my parents ever again after I moved out after college, yet it's great spending time with my parents before my wife and I leave for China next month.  My desktop will be rusting in his garage for the next two years.... hope my laptop can handle my favorite intensive Steam games, like Defender Quest and Faerie Solitaire.

Does anyone have a Summer Adventure Card 7 to give or trade?

Considering you spent nearly $700 during the sale, I find it funny that you don't just buy a 15 cent card :)

Speaking of non-highlight games on sale, I think I will be getting The Yawhg.  I've been following this game for a while and it looks like a blast.  It's kind of a weird hybrid board game - story telling game, where you play with multiple people and work together in order to stop some impending disaster; but in this game it's more about the journey (and the great choose-your-own-adventure style of decision making).  There are stats so it's not completely a visual novel; it plays unique and it has great art style (Emily Carroll of His Face All Red fame).

 

Here's an overview video:

Hopefully after AC4 is pushed off the daily deal in an hour, we won't have to talk about pirates anymore.

Wow I passed out at 10pm and never got to purchase goat simulator. I even had it open on my browser. Oh well you snooze you lose (literally in my case).

I wonder what Valve's logic is in repeating flashes, dailies and community votes (sometimes simultaneously) yet letting fan favorites fall into obscurity through ignorant hive mind.  If they already have the ok from the developers for potential discounts, why don't they allow more diversity in sales without so many repeats?  I'm not trying to complain about the percentage of discounts or whatnot, since that is probably outside of their control.  I just don't get the concept of community votes that will never see the light of day if lost when so many sale slots are repeated ad nauseum.

 

Oh well.

Got KOF13 for a decent price off cag, now if only SF4 could go on sale as well. Don't know why but I am wanting some fighting games.

I feel the same way.  C'mon SF4 AE flash sale!

Sigh... Tempted on kof since it's been on my wish list for a long time, but why can't it ever get a 75% discount?!

Finally, a community vote with a game on my wishlist.  Voted for point and click adventures :)

While I enjoyed Gone Home for what it's worth (minus some immersion-breaking contrivances and cliches), I absolutely loved Gunpoint.  Of the four games you just mentioned, I would have ranked them: Gunpoint > Risk of Rain > Rogue Legacy > Gone Home.  I hope you do snag one of those other games during encore sale (or when they're repeated 3 times as daily and flash sales).

Haha, Lego Movie Game and Jazzpunk are on the list for next community votes, even though they were dailies and Lego Movie is still available as yesterday's daily.  Of course that group will win though.

Thanks to everyone who participated in my giveaway contest!
Without further ado, here are the winners:
 
For comic strip 1, Fox with his recent Groupees Dollar Days strip.  I know it was his second submission but it's too good and hits too close to home to not count.
 
For comic strip 2, zenii with his clever use of six Steam games in a comic strip that actually made sense.
 
For comic strip 3, ltrain23 and zenii had a similar theme but I'm picking ltrain23 since his came first.  This strip also hits close to home since there were times I missed sleep in anticipation for a price mistake :)
 
Everyone is a winner, but the REAL winners are Fox, zenii and ltrain23. You three can PM me during the Summer Sale to let me know which game you'd like (as long as it is $9.99 or less).  I should be able to get any dailies, but flash sales during the last couple days of June aren't guaranteed since I will be moving.... basically the earlier the better (while I still have easy access to a computer haha).
 
Hope everyone enjoyed the contest!  Let's get pumped for the Summer Sale (and price glitches)!

I'm curious, did you get the summer sale dates mixed up? It starts on June 19th, not July 19th.


Oh my goodness you are right. I meant this Tuesday, June 17 haha!
