If you missed Witcher 2 on the Steam sale, The Witcher 1 & 2 are bundled for $17 on GOG.com

GOG is run by the publisher of The Witcher. Copies are not Steam activated but are DRM free.

Just because I'm the only person talking doesn't mean I'm going to stop! Just ask my wife.

Saints Row 3 is a Steam flash sale. If you were planning on getting the Amazon $9.99 deal tomorrow, you can still buy any DLC you might want for 75% off through Steam today. Just select "Gift to be delivered later" to put it in your inventory. Common wisdom seems to be the Season Pass, the Funtime pack and perhaps the Purple Spec Ops packs being the best but I haven't played so don't take my word as gospel.

tempted to get LA Noire. I've only rented it before and it was pretty fun (i enjoyed the setting), but it kind of got a little redundant with the "You're lying!" dialogue.

I regret buying LA Noire. Graphically it's fairly impressive, but the game play is boring and repetitive. You can only wonder around a crime scene so many times before you just don't care anymore.

IGN had a good review of E.Y.E.

Also, I picked up Dear Esther. It was worth the three bucks or whatever, but I probably wouldn't pay more than that. It's a mindscrew focused solely on plot. It's gorgeous - especially the sequences inside the cave, but dont' go in expecting gameplay. It's a narration. That said, it's not a bad narration at all. I rather enjoyed it. It's told in a fairly non-linear format, though. Just know what to expect going in. I liked it myself, and others will if you enjoy a game with a good story.

Also, the soundtrack is gawgeus.

They post that message when their servers get flooded. Same thing happened when they had Skyrim for 50% off 4-5 months ago.

Believe it or not i'm intrigued by the current voting choices. All three of the RPGs are games ive come really close to buying in the past. I voted for Divinity 2 though, anyone have any experience with the three games?

I own all three (Steam gave them to me for free), but only played Two Worlds II and Risen.

I enjoyed Two Worlds II much more than Risen since I thought it was more RPG-ish (more loot, skill points, leveling up) where as everything in Risen was more much gold-oriented. In order to raise skills, you'd need to pay to train them. Combat was easier in Two Worlds II, resulting in a lot less death.

Both games are absolutely huge and look amazing. You'll easily put in 60+ hours just to play through once and the games are open enough to warrant several playthroughs if you like trying different builds.

Divinity II looked like a FF game to me (somewhat open, but more directed than the others), but since I haven't played it, I can't comment.
Oh, and Risen II is apparently awful according to reviews, so that may or may not affect your decision (I buy games all the time because of newly released sequels).


I don't really care for the flash deals and voting portion this year, but I guess after all the problems with using achievements last sale, Steam couldn't repeat that again. Most of these deals are ones that either come up a lot and/or are already being offered as the daily deal. Since it's not uncommon for someone to miss a single day of the daily deals, I almost fail to see the point of the flash deals. Maybe we could vote for one game for a 24 hour sale that wasn't going to be a daily deal...

I bought Divinity II: DKS from some Amazon sale for like five bucks once upon a time. It's a fairly enjoyable 3rd person adventure game. Plot is fairly linear -- there's a bunch of side quests and technically you can move ahead of the plot but the changes in mob level (no mob scaling) means you'll be staying in the areas you're supposed to stay in. I don't think things respawned either so there's little reason to go backwards except to hit a town to sell at. Dungeons are a bit of a pixel hunt to open secret doors and the like.

Eventually you get to turn into a dragon so you'll have that going for you. Combat is a bit button mash-y but you have additional powers you can activate off the numbers bar and a good variety of skills to choose from. Graphics aren't bad but some of the voice acting and facial synching will give you an amused cringe. There's an item slotting system for equipment customization.

All in all, it's not a bad game. I suppose it's worth ten bucks but I'm personally happy to have paid less. It's... serviceable? That sounds worse than intended but you'll play it, you'll probably enjoy it, you might even finish it.

Man, I should write game reviews.

I voted Risen after looking at reviews for all 3. Seemed to be the most favorable for my specific interests (primarily meaning better praise for story-telling, characters, and narrative). But I'll probably grab whichever one wins.

Totally gonna buy Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet, and I don't even know what it's about. That name warrants the purchase price.

As for the flash sales and community stuff, the real flesh of the Summer Sale seems to be the flash sale system. Generally get the best deals (an extra 25-50% off what the normal sale price is). The Community Choice seems, to me, to mostly about giving a first or second chance at some of the flash sales with prior notice.

I actually like it, I think. Granted, I can't remember how they did it last year.

Risen is not that bad. I rather enjoyed it. You get a huge nicely designed island to play around on with hidden nooks and coves to explore. You can play through two different stories depending on faction choice. All in all except for the unforgiving action combat (Think Witcher high learning curve) it was a fun game.

I also already have Two worlds 2 and the entire Divinity series. I'm a sucker for RPG games. Neither are spectacular either but I played them all the way through and enjoyed them.

I'm sad to hear that Risen 2 sucks actually. If it gets cheap enough I might have to see for myself but not for a mere 33% off. (spoiled by 75%)

How many games did you purchase during the sale, and were they back to back purchases? I remember when I did my first Steam sale my credit card company though that my card/account had been hijacked and had blocked any further purchases from Steam.

That's quite possible. I made quite a few purchases. :/ Kinda necessary with the flash sale system.

Though now Steam is just telling me:

When I first go to check out, so I hope it's them. I hate calling customer service. XD
