PostSubject: Steam Winter Sale   Fri Dec 19, 2014 5:15 pm

Steam has begun its winter sale: http://store.steampowered.com/
Heres a helpful flow chart to help you spend less money




Here are the deals that i think are the best, ill update them once a day as new daily deals come up
Dates in yellow are deals that you can still get
If a game isnt listed here i either dont think its worth the price or didnt like the game
The sale ends on January 2nd

Dec 18th
State of Decay ($5): http://store.steampowered.com/app/241540/
This is a really well done single player zombie survival game well worth $5 if you like that sort of thing

Dark Souls 2 ($15): http://store.steampowered.com/app/236430/
This is an unforgivingly difficult RPG with a pretty good story thats fun to play, you should play the first 1 first though
There will be a kind of GOTY edition coming out in a few months or so, and since this is $15 (which is kindve high for steam sales) you might want to hold off on buying it
Of course the GOTY edition wont be $15 so while i think its worth the $15 you should keep that in mind before buying it

Dec 19th
Batman Arkham Origins ($5): http://store.steampowered.com/app/209000/
This is the best batman game so far, the detective mode bits are great, the combat is great, the story is great, and at $5 id say its a must buy
For an extra $5 you can get all the DLC, but really the only DLC you want is Cold Cold Heart ($2.50), the others are crap, the initiation dlc kindve sucks and the rest is just cosmetics or cheaty items

Killing Floor ($5): http://store.steampowered.com/app/1250/
This is a 6 player co-op zombie killing simulator, its pretty fun but nothing special, its worth $5 though

Castle Crashers ($1.50): http://store.steampowered.com/app/204360/
This is a 4 player co-op sidescrolling beat-em-up, really fun and basically free at $1.50 its well worth the purchase
It kindve needs friend to play with though

Dec 20th
Prison Architect ($6): http://store.steampowered.com/app/233450/
I havent played this since alpha 10 or 11 (its at alpha 28 now) and i havent been keeping up with its developement so i dont know how much theyve channged since i played, but i have to assume that it got better over time and when i played it was already pretty good
Its a business management game where the goal is to make a huge successful prison, the inmates act like you would expect prisoners to act, they will shank eachother and try to hide weapons, sometimes they even attack the staff, but once you figure it out its easy to get them to behave (at least it was in alpha 11)
Once you make 1 really good prison youll probably stop playing like i did (i plan to play again once its not in early access), after that first good prison theres not much reason to play again (though getting that good prison might take a few tries)

The Vanishing of Ethan Carter ($12): http://store.steampowered.com/app/258520/
See the post about it here: http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t1466-the-vanishing-of-ethan-carter
The short version is its a really enjoyable story driven first person logic game with some great moments that i wish was longer

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth ($10): http://store.steampowered.com/app/250900/
It has a good story, good gameplay, and even though its barely on sale (it just came out last month, so its only 33% off) its def worth $10

7 days to die ($13): http://store.steampowered.com/app/251570/
See the post about it here: http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t1470-7-days-to-die
The short version is, its the best multiplayer survival game out so far, though its missing a lot of features since its still in early access, but still worth playing now

Metro 2033 redux is also good but didnt make this list because its just not cheap enough to me

Dec 21
Skyrim Legendary Edition ($14): http://store.steampowered.com/sub/28187/
See the post about it here: http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t923-oh-em-gee
The short version is that its a great open world RPG
The legendary edition includes all the DLC and is well worth $14

Portal 1 and 2 ($5): http://store.steampowered.com/sub/7932/
See the post about it here: http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t1032-portal-2-review
The short version is its a fantastic first person puzzle game

Alien Isolation and Never Alone are also good, but arent on this list as they are barely on sale since they just came out, would wait for summer sale or next winter sale unless you really want those right now
Spore is also fun for a few hours but quickly becomes boring and, to me at least, has no re playability
I havent played this new version of age of mythology but it looks good, the original age of mythology was great and this doesnt seem to have any problems so it might be worth getting

Dec 22nd

Saints Row Full Package ($14): http://store.steampowered.com/sub/46504/
Saints Row is an enjoyable open world game where you can cause mass mayhem
The 2nd game takes itself seriously, its story isnt bad, and fun, the city feels bigger as well, in some ways i like this more than 3
The 3rd game is more fun and light hearted but still some what based in reality and really enjoyable with a decent story
The 4th game is compete insanity, still fun but the story doesnt matter at this point

GTA Complete Pack ($10): http://store.steampowered.com/sub/28988/
Vice city is my favorite in this series, san andreas is the worst
I dont recommend playing this and Saints Row at the same time or back to back since they are pretty similar (unless you love that style of game)
GTA's story is generally better than Saint Row's but you cant cause as much mayhem or go as crazy in GTA

The Walking Dead Season 1 and 2 ($6.30 each):
http://store.steampowered.com/app/207610/
http://store.steampowered.com/app/261030/
See the post about it here: http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t1486-the-walking-dead-game
The short version is, season 1 is a master piece, a must buy for anyone that like adventure games and even if you dont should still be considered as its a great adventure game to start with
Season 2 is good too, though no where near as good as season 1

Chivalry is good but isnt on my list because its not my type of game, its worth checking out at $5 if its your kindve thing
Outlast got boring to me as its mostly just jump scares so i never finished it and cant put it on the list

Dec 23
Just Cause Collection ($4): http://store.steampowered.com/sub/49740/
I havent played Just Cause 1, but the 2nd game is really fun, you can grapple around and deploy a parachute to kindve sortve fly (imagine if spider man had a hang glider, thats basically how the movement system works), i personally wasnt interested in the story so i never got that far with it but its an enjoyable game to just roam around in

Scribblenauts Unlimited ($5): http://store.steampowered.com/app/218680/
A puzzle game that allows you to solve its puzzles with almost no limits, you can create nearly anything you can think of at will to help you solve something
It sounds like that would make the game easy, and it sometimes does, but its a lot more fun if you come up with insane ways to solve something rather than doing the obvious thing

Bioshock Triple Pack ($10): http://store.steampowered.com/sub/36223/
See the post about it here: http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t1379-bioshock-infinite
The short version is its a great first person series with a good story
The 2nd game is pretty weak, but not bad
Burial at Sea is the only DLC that you need and unfortunately its $10 for the season pass( http://store.steampowered.com/app/214933/ buying the DLC separately is a waste of money), so if you want everything its $20 (if you only want infinite + dlc its $15, so id say the extra $5 for bioshock 1 and 2 is worth it by buying the triple pack and the infinite season pass unless you already have 1 of these games

Garry's Mod ($3): http://store.steampowered.com/app/4000/
You can build some crazy stuff, like working flying machines, cars, or rube goldberg machines
You can add models to it as well, so you can put in models from other games, movies or TV shows
It also has a bunch of minigames like:
Trouble in Terrorist Town. where 10% of the players are traitors and the other 90% are innocent and the traitors have to kill all the innocents without being killed by the innocents, theres also a detective that everyone knows is on the innocent side
Murder, where 1 person has to kill everyone else without being killed
Hide and Seek, which is... hide and seek
Prop Hunt, where people hide as objects (props) on a map filled with a bunch of objects
Surf, which is like first person mazing without patrols and with physics
MelonBomber, which is exactly like classic bomber man
And some others too, its pretty fun

Payday 2 isnt on the list because its too similar to payday 1, but if youve never played payday then payday 2 is worth $8
Game of Thrones isnt on the list because theres only 1/6th of the game out right now, and it just recently came out so its not really on sale, i will play this when its completely out
Age of Wonder 3 isnt on the list because i havent played it though it looks good

Dec 24
I will try to update this tomorrow, but i probably wont have time so dont expect it to be here

PostSubject: Re: Steam Winter Sale   Fri Dec 19, 2014 8:12 pm

ive been undecided on the batman series for so long. it looks so unenjoyable to me in the trailers but then all the genres are right up my alley so i feel like if i try it ill end up loving it. now that its on sale ill probably go for it

im hoping to pick up the vanishing of ethan carter, maybe the south park game, child of light, maybe the fable remastered thing (ive been in a nostalgic mood), the stanley parable, and very maybe the talos principle (a lot less likely than either ethan carter or stanley parable, and if i get either of those i probably wont get this)

are there any games you guys are specifically looking for?

adding to pats list of really good deals
deus ex human revolution was great. its a single player stealth action rpg with good open world elements. stealth games are tricky because the line between frustrating and satisfying is so player dependent, but the rpg-esque skill trees really alleviate that. very fun, good story and i definitely recommend it, especially since the goty ed is just $4 right now

Heres my plan for this steam sale: (im obviously waiting for the best prices)

BUYING: striked=bought with deal
Assassin's Creed 2
Assassin's Creed Black Flag
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood
Batman: Arkham City
Fallout 3
Fallout: New Vegas
Far Cry 3
Shadow of Mordor
The Witcher 2
Deus Ex
Deus Ex - Human Revolution
Grand Theft Auto: Vice City
Saints Row: The Third
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Half Life
The Orange Box
Morrowind
Bioshock 1
Bioshock Infinite

Games that I thought that just weren't worth buying for me: (the reason I'm not buying these is I don't want to spend more and I felt like these didnt convince me enough)
Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeroes (Seems like a really solid game but not even playtime to justify buying)
State of Decay
DayZ
Dark Souls 2 (I played the first game a little and I just couldnt like it because controlling your character is just awkward and difficult in my opinion and from what I hear its really not that hard to play this game as pat stated, its just the same tactic of running up close, attacking, and rolling out repeatedly)
Wolfenstein (looks like a solid game but I dont wanna spend $30 on it)
Shovel Knight (I wish this one was on sale. unforunately it isnt)

Ive updated the first post a couple times with more deals, i also added my reasons for games that i think are good but didnt make the list

City and Origins are really good, Asylum is good story wise but is lacking gameplay wise, especially when compared to City and Origins

You should avoid the newest fable remastered thing, its really poorly made, the UI and controls are terrible
If you want to play fable get this instead: http://store.steampowered.com/app/204030/
Its much better even though it doesnt look as good (its only 3 years old so it doesnt look that bad)

The south park game is worth it, when that comes up in a daily deal it will be on my list for that day
Child of light also worth it, i actually already started working on what im going to write for that when it goes on sale since it takes more time than normal to write something like that lol
I wouldnt play south park and child of light back to back, thats what i did, with southpark first and it made me not want to play child of light for awhile just because the combat system is so similar

The stanely parable is fun but it wont be on my list unless its on sale for $5 or maybe $7 just because its really short
Havent played the talos principle yet, but since it just came out i doubt it will be on sale (maybe like 15% off, but thats not really a sale during the winter sale)

Thats a good list

Bioshock 2 is worth getting if you love Bioshock 1 even though its no where near as good
Batman Origins and Asylum are also worth getting
Shadow of Mordor wont really be on sale since it just came out
Saints Row 2 and 4 are worth getting if you play 3, 1 sucks, 2 takes itself seriously but is enjoyable and 4 embraced the insanity that 3 had a bit of and is really funny if you played 2 and 3
I like how you avoided the bad assassins creed games lol, assassins creed 1 is worth getting though, black flag is my favorite of those

Its intentionally hard to control, and that tactic is the most effective but actually doing it isnt that easy without taking damage and a lot of the time 1 hit can kill you

im going to put this here since it really doesnt need its own section, but the xbox marketplace is also running its own holiday sale, and diablo 3 reaper of souls is one of the highlights on that at $15
http://tmmm.forumclan.com/t1103p20-diablo-3#17239
tl;dr: i loved it as a modern gauntlet: dark legacy type game, as it's a dungeon crawl that works for all audiences. mario kart (or similar) will always be the game of choice, but this has its own niche
