Relatively speaking, of course. I'd imagine the issue is now with the popularity of GMG, Amazon, and other big names in the digital world, Steam sales are just 'meh' by comparison to them, but I think when compared to previous Steam sales it seems pretty on par(*)


(*) Only been a Steam member for two years. So I've only experience a handful of Steam sales.

I was going to post something derogatory about Deus Ex being on sale again but then I realized that we're actually quite spoiled with backlogs of games we'll never complete.

Probably a solid plan.

I might grab Gunpoint. I would have nabbed Evoland if it was 75%.

Well ya, but Bastion is an awesome game and for $2.25... the other games don't stand a chance. I wouldn't put this game winning at the same level as Deus Ex:HR winning...

I picked Awesomenauts. A, because I own Bastion. B, because Bastion is a repeat (though at a better price, iirc).

They all seem decent enough (and I know Bastion's great), so it doesn't seem like you can go wrong. Though I THINK SSZ is an actual repeat.

Also, you can tell what the next featured sale will be if you drag the postcard image to your browser. For example, behind the DI: Riptide postcard, is a Torchlight II postcard.

Oh good. It's not like TL hasn't been on sale already. And it's not like it already has widespread ownership or anything.

If for some silly reason you don't have Bastion yet, you'd be stupid not to buy it for $2.24. Just saying.

If it makes you feel better, you won't be able to get away from it come the next sale either. Mildly NSFW, btw.

FC: Blood Dragon is $9. Not a bad deal, but I would wait for someone else to have it lower if you're not in a hurry to play it.

Sang-Froid is fun if you're into defense style games. Good concept.

Hopefully Dragonborn is a nice low price (it's the last one I need), if not I have now found a crack-like addiction with Terraria, I even bought it for my neighbor so we could play in one world (or farm multiple other worlds).

I been poking around Deponia a bit. So far seems to be worth the 5 bucks if you like point and click adventure games. I doubt there is much replay value to the game, given its nature. But a few of the early puzzles were surprisingly difficult, but I guess it will show me what the game is expecting and prepare me for the later puzzles.

Also poking around in SMTIV. I'm going on a 5 day European trip here soon so I think I'll take my 3DS. But I just checked and Nintendo is cheap and their standard power adapter is only 120V, not a good 100-240V anything adapter...
