Come and post all your acquisitions for the GoG and Steam sale this summer and discuss what other people got.

If you could post where you got the game from I think it would be cool to see how GoG and Steam compare this season.


Overview:

Microbadge: Good Old Games fan 47 games (10 before the steam sale)

Microbadge: Steam user 140 games

Microbadge: Humble Bundle fan 8 games

? 4 games

Pretty decent so far. I'm a already struggling with some normal levels. I think having to uncover so much of the map just to find the enemys to fight can really hurt your chances.

Cool little space strategy game. Very lean UI, nice and simple rules and the missions are pretty varied too so far.

Want to play an oldish X-COM-like that has a mildly modern interface, and this one seems to fit the bill.

The Interplay flightsim bundle was a great deal, though I already owned half of it (The Descent games). I love the Freespace games and finally picked up this and Descent: FreeSpace – The Great War and GoG this summer.

I immediately installed the latest version of FreespaceOpen, which is even better than it was last time I tried it several years ago.

Half price on GOG. I've been meaning to pick this one up, and finally did. An updated version of classic X-COM: UFO Defense.

At 90% off from GoG I couldn't argue with that anymore.

Hopefully this will be as fun as people say.

I've finally succumbed to the temptations of KSP.

One of my best friends, my sisters boyfriend and half the internet is nuts about this game. Hopefully I'll be too.

Also from GoG.

It is on Sale right now (Steam) and since the game looks unique it was an instant buy. But I don't know when I will be able to play it as I still have to finish GTA5 and Walking Dead Season 2.

It's Distant Worlds Universe, to be precise. I nabbed it today off of Matrix Games' website from their sale which started today instead of getting it off of Steam for obvious reasons. I have been eying this game for a few years now and with it on sale and school over, I feel that it is time to delve into this beautiful 4X space strategy game! (The best on the market afaik!)

My only beef with Matrix is not putting their Scourge of War series up for sale as well I really wanted to get Gettysburg and Antietam.

I am really excited about this!



I will also be nabbing a few more games from Steam as well.

I wasn't intending to buy anything in the Steam sale this time but 60% off this collection was too good to miss. I loved the originals and I've been told these are the same but with better graphics. I didn't even need the better graphics, 'as good as the originals' would have been good enough for me.

STEAM Sale

So, in the Steam sale I picked up three games:

1) Victoria Series - I purchased the entire Victoria collection (Victoria I and Victoria II on Steam). I have been eying this game for a while now as well as Distant Worlds.

2) Dino D-Day - I don't have many games I can play with others and noticed a bunch of new Steam friends own this game and at .99 cents, I couldn't pass up giving it a try!

3) Rise of Nations: Gold Edition - Classic strategy game.

Just bought a 4 pack of this, just because of how cheap (and random) it was. I so hope it's as fun as it looks. Fingers crossed...

Picked this up from Steam - which is on my wishlist -- and these two others, because they were so cheap.

Video Game: Nidhogg
Video Game: Creeper World 3: Arc Eternal


But these are only minor deviations from the plan.

Made quite a bundle on Monster card sales, so I guess that's all right. But now Steam has put a sell delay order on Monster cards created from card sets, so that's not going to work.

This seemed a nice game and since it was on sale on Steam I grabbed a copy.
