post gud steam sale dealz here (self.games)
submitted 1 year ago* by devtesla
I start!! I'm focusing on newer games at historical lowest prices, or near lowest.
XCOM 2 $36 - RNG hate me.
Stardew Valley for $12 - I found it impossible not to smile while playing this game, it gets just about everything right for a Harvest Moon style game
Darkest Dungeon for $15 - I haven't played it but looks pretty cool, weird dungeon crawly thing.
Dragon's Dogma: Dark Arisen for $20.10 - mix of monster hunter and general open worlding, your squad mates are totally customizable and on loan from your friends which is very cool.
The new DOOM for $36 - best shooter ever
METAL GEAR SOLID V: THE PHANTOM PAIN for $28 - I haven't played it yet but I love metal gear and this is new and different??
Undertale for $7 - Undertale
Environmental Station Alpha for $4.80 - Someone was going to post this so I got ahead of the game.
The Talos Principle for $10 &
The Talos Principle: Road To Gehenna for $5.10 I love me some Talos and Road To Gehenna is even better than the base game.
The Witness for $32 - it's Myst but more abstract, and it's wonderfully put together
Let me know what I missed! Thank u ever one
also here are the games I mention every steam sale
Puzzle Dimension for $0.75 - seriously, such a good puzzle game
Might & Magic: Clash of Heroes for $5 & Critter Crunch for $1.05 - Puzzle games with fantastic adventure modes and tons of sweet ideas.
F.E.A.R. for $2.50 - the second best shooter ever
English Country Tune for $0.50 - Brilliant and maddening sokobon puzzles where you have to think in three dimensions.
Hexcells Complete Pack for $2.70 - Staggeringly brilliant puzzles that mix minesweeper and picross.
Edit: Fullbright's last check bounced so I forgot to mention:
Gone Home for $4.00
Edit Edit: The Campo Santo check cleared to remember to buy Firewatch for $13.40

F.E.A.R. for $2.50 - the second best shooter ever

Also what's the first best?

dev said doom
[–]hoppet 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
oh oops i need to learn to read
[–]devtesla[S] 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago*
F.E.A.R. is really fun cause the AI does so many cool things, and the levels are designed create these great, unpredictable moments. It's a balance no other military FPS has gotten so right.
I'm mostly ranking stuff just for fun but this is my list, note that this is just for single player and I'm leaving off immersive sims like Deus Ex even tho yea those are great:
Deus ex is a great game but not a great fps lol
[–]devtesla[S] 3 points4 points5 points 1 year ago
HRev was really great tho
yeah it was i'm looking forward to the next one but i've always been a mega deus ex fan

Sid Meier's Pirates! $2.49 still kind of the best pirate gam
Valkyria Chronicles $4.99 p good kind of odd tonally i know alot of people hate it but i think its good never played the pc one tho
Dead Rising 2: Off the Record $5.99 this gam has a lot of bad things in it from a (for lack of better word) social justice stand point but it is my fav kind of goofy fun makes a good podcast game dont bother with Dead Rising 2 og unless you care about the story (you dont) off the record has more things in it pro tip get cheat engine or something to make yourself max lvl at the start trust me
NBA 2K16 $11.99 i dont care about basketball but i had fun with it the spike lee things is bad and not in a funny way but it is still fun and im probably going to play some more of it i played the ps4 one i dont know how it is on pc
Dishonored $4.99 i wanted to love this game but it just never got me like i feel like it should have still good for $5 lot of sneaks but also just killing people is super fun because of the shit you can get away with i heard the dlc is supper good but i never played
Darkest Dungeon $14.99 v fun v hard dont play it if your are the type to save scum it not how you play and prob will not work just roll with it and it will suck u in
Crypt of the NecroDancer $3.74 god this game is so fun buy it now maybe get the collectors edition it good this game is so good pls play it
[–]devtesla[S] 2 points3 points4 points 1 year ago
I should try NecroDancer again, I got to the second world and was so overwhelmed that I needed to stop
[–]missingno 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
Practice, practice, practice, practice. It took me almost 20 hours just to get through individual zones with Cadence the first time, and then once I finally got that down moved on to the next challenge and kept practicing.
What I really love most about Necrodancer is that tangible feeling of steady improvement. There's always room to get better, and a lot of different goals you can set for yourself so that each one is just in sight from the last.
[–]missingno 1 point2 points3 points 1 year ago*
Skullgirls for $2.99 (-70%) - You know I have to mention this one. It's a damn good fightgaem and feature-rich with detailed tutorials, a nice story mode, and that wonderful GGPO netcode.
Crypt of the Necrodancer for $3.74 (-75%) or $8.74 for the bundle with all 5 soundtracks and making of mini-documentary - The best damn roguelike I've ever played. It's almost purely focused on player skill over RNG due to the way enemy patterns are designed such that it's always possible to avoid damage if you play perfectly - but don't be fooled, it's far harder than it looks when there's a swarm of tricky zone 4 mobs and the pressure to always keep moving to the beat. The skill curve is really wonderfully paced, beating Cadence or Bard for the first time takes plenty of practice but you will feel yourself steadily improving as you go until you finally get there. Then once you've conquered that first challenge there are many more goals to go after: bring your speedrun times down, try a high score run (actually don't score is boring), work on consistency and see how many consecutive wins you can get in Deathless Mode, play the other unlockable characters with very different playstyles, do an All Chars run to beat the first 9 characters back to back without dying, etc. There is always higher to climb - to date only 12 people in the world have beaten the secret 10th character Coda, and so far nobody has managed to pull off a low% run with her yet. Oh, and get the soundtracks, they're soooo good. You get 5 different cover albums by Danny Baranowsky, A_Rival, Familyjules7x, Virt, and Girlfriend Records.
Lethal League for $4.75 (-66%) - One of those minimalist games-that-gets-people-arguing-about-what-is-and-isn't-a-fighting-game. Regardless of how you want to classify it genre-wise, it's definitely a damn good game, that's for sure. Very easy for casual audiences to pick up and play, but there's so much hidden depth beneath the surface for hardcore players who want to dive into that. Yes, this game does have a serious competitive scene!
Towerfall Ascension for $7.49% (-50%) - If you have local friends to play it with, this is another great game that's easy to learn and hard to master. Unfortunately the developer went off on some stubborn rant on why the game will never have online, and there's not much in the way of single-player content either. So only buy this if you have some IRL friends you can rope into playing it together.
Freedom Planet for $7.49 (-50%) - A better Sonic game than Sega could ever make.
VVVVVV for $1.24 (-75%) - A killer hard but fair platformer with a killer good soundtrack.
Super Hexagon for $1.01 (-66%) - actually wait no don't buy it this game is spawn of satan and will shatter your mind run while you still can

i think i'm gonna sit it out this year. i have a pretty big backlog of games on ps4 which i've been using more than my macbook anyway for gaming (because that's what it's for and i live alone now so i get the tv to myself) and most of the games i want are either available on neither (stardew valley plus some older games) or both (firewatch, talos) or are pretty cheap without discount (esa, undertale)
anyway hope u enjoyed this update on my life.
TROPICO 5 is pretty cool
MGSV is dope but I'm a hxc mgs fan but also i think it's more accessible than some of the games in the series and new and you don't NEED the backstory really at all.
BULLY: SCHOLARSHIP EDITION is one that had an aesthetic i really enjoyed and was honestly kind of formative for me when i played it on ps2 just before i started 12th grade? so I bought it when it was on sale on PS4 a little while ago. it's a bizarre combination of asinine and misogynistic, trying desperately to be edgy within certain boundaries set by the fact that the characters are 15-year-olds and failing. it was still kind of a nostalgic trip but I definitely don't recommend it.
SLEEPING DOGS I just started recently but I love it! it's like batman meets GTA but in a way cooler setting and with more satisfying mechanics than the former. Hong Kong feels more populous than any video game city i've ever seen before
[–]devtesla[S] 0 points1 point2 points 1 year ago
thank u for the update on yur good gaming life
SLEEPING DOGS is amazing and I'll make an update post with a few more games, it'll be on it.
tbh i probably would never have bought sleeping dogs if you hadn't big up'd it so hard when it was new. also i wrote that post BEFORE i realized that there was a karaoke minigame, and now i am writing this post after, and my opinion of the game has improved
The way his voice cracks if you sing it wrong <3
and also if you sing it right
The Cat Lady [tw: suicide, abuse] for that "oh shit this game" factor.
