Obviously, if I have a profile on this site, it means that I play video games. I also happen to write, and the two have made a harmonious combination for a hobby. I mainly write FAQs and reviews, and *try* to stick to one of these categories:
-RPG and non-linear adventure games
-Anything with horror or b-movie elements
-Anything unique, obscure, or just plain weird
Sounds broad, but it also means you probably won't see a Super Mario Bros. 3 review from me any time soon.
Title: Steam sales end tomorrow :( Posted: January 02, 2011 (04:40 PM)
Not that I need to buy more games on Steam. Hoo...
Did anyone snag any of the cheap games off Steam? I think I way overspent, but that's okay. I still have all my bills paid.
I was able to snag:
Clive Barker's Jericho
Doc Clock: The Toasted Sandwich of Time
Greed: Black Border
Grotesque Tactics: Evil Heroes
Heretic: Shadow of the Serpent Riders
The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom
Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale
S.T.A.L.K.E.R.: Shadow of Chernobyl
Sacred (Gold edition)
Silverfall: Earth Awakening
Super Meat Boy
World of Goo
So yeah, damn near 30 games, some of which were under $1, and I don't think I paid more than $10 per game.

Damn, I need to check Steam tonight.

Might buy Grotesque Tactics ($2.50?) depending on how I feel tonight.
User: Suskie Title: Re: Steam sales end tomorrow :( Posted: January 02, 2011 (11:21 PM)
So I got The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom ($.49), Amnesia: The Dark Descent ($6.80), S.T.A.L.K.E.R. bundle ($4.99), and Braid ($4.99). Also, I was going to buy Beat Hazard for $4.99 when I realized that there was an "indie rhythm bundle" on sale which included that game and four others... for the same price. So I also scored BIT.TRIP BEAT, Chime, Rhythm Zone and Turba. Whatever those are.

I'm only vaguely familiar with the BIT.TRIP games. They also have a platformer out that I played on PS3. I wasn't impressed. The rest I'm completely unfamiliar with.
User: Suskie Title: Re: Steam sales end tomorrow :( Posted: January 02, 2011 (11:32 PM)
Well, they were essentially free, so I'm not complaining.
User: JoeTheDestroyer Title: Re: Steam sales end tomorrow :( Posted: January 03, 2011 (12:39 AM)
Yeah, no kidding. Most of the indie games I snagged were also in a bundle, and so far they've worked out.
