My purchases so far...
- The Last Dogma: overwhelmingly negative ratings, but I like the concept, and the game is at 0.69€ and I farmed three cards which total more than 1€ in value. I'll get back to you when I sell them, lol.
- Conception II, a "naughty Persona" game. I've always wanted to play a Persona game, might as well play a naughty version. :P 8€ right now.
- Stories: The Path of Destinies, I mentioned it when it was under $2 at HB last month, now it's at 1.5€/$1.5 on Steam, which was enough to make me get it (Steam wallet = card farming money exclusively = why not, hey!)
- Prince of Persia (the late 2000's version, Uplay-free.) This game has been derided for being too easy, and that's exactly why I decided to buy it (I don't have time to redo the same level 10.000 times.) 3.4€, lowest price in years.
- The Vagrant, couple bucks, halfway between a Metroidvania and Valkyrie Profile... I'll take it!
- Sevens Seas Solitaire, because I buy anything with 'casual' and 'pirate game' slapped on them. Plus, great reviews. 3€, if you're not a fan, you should probably wait until it's bundled.
- A Tale of Caos: Overture, a retro point & click, under a buck, no-brainer for me. Probably bundled soon, I don't know, but it's still worth supporting the studio.
- Noximilian the Clockmaker: bought (0.7€, lowest price ever) just so I could post a review of it. I just love that French/Japanese short movie, and I'd suggest you look up Masaaki Yuasa's works. ;) (Kaiba is one of my favorite shows, ever.)
I think that's all for now... About 20€ well spent, I'd say.
Likely future purchases:
- Fortune Summoners for 3€ (it's an old 2D side-scrolling JRPG, I played it a bit and it's nice. If you don't have other games from their publisher, buy the bundle, it's worth it, all the games are good.)
- Odyssey (a science game, à la Myst), it's a first part only but it's tempting to reward indie studios that take risks with educational software. 6€.
- A Timely Intervention, from Aldorea (Aldorlea?), it's an RPG Maker game but I love RPGs with a time-travel twist. Unfortunately, nothing can come close to Chrono Trigger, but they can always try. ;) Relatively unlikely purchase though, as it's 2.5€ and I have a feeling before a year we'll see it under a buck. Then again, waiting a year just to save a buck..? Who cares? Also, this studio isn't bundle-oriented.
- Elite Dangerous, as discussed earlier. Still wondering whether to take the base game only. I know I'm unlikely to play it, as I prefer my space games to have a ground exploration component first-- and even then, I tend to get bored quickly.
- Yonder, as discussed earlier.
- My Tribe, okay, I'm a casual game guy after all... Still, 3.5€ for a mixed review game is a bit much.
- Fable Anniversary, always hoping it'll get bundled or get in a better sale. Seriously, this game was sold under 5€ on Steam and suddenly they decided a year ago that they'd never sell it under 8€ again. Ouch... I'm not in a hurry, I have the original PC version in my account.
- Planescape: Torment Enhanced, as discussed earlier.
- The Town of Light, a psych-horror walking simulator not based on jump scares, more interested in 'psych' than 'horror'. Still a bit expensive at 6.5€, but another worthy 'indie studio support' endeavor.
- Lostwinds 2, because, well I don't know, I got the first one...?! 2€ is still a bit expensive, and it might get bundled in the future.
- Vampire Bloodlines is solidly back at 5€ on sale (like on Black Friday), after being outrageously overpriced for over a year in sales. I'm still not sure it's worth 5€ though, especially after the horror stories I heard about the game bugs... (Plus, it's old! So old that they have a Lacuna Coil song in their soundtrack! Don't get me wrong, I love Lacuna Coil, but I listened to them when I was in my twenties!!)
- Shiness is around 10€. Sweeter price for a French action-RPG that seems nice. Not convinced about the arena system though, and possibly put off by the project lead as well (as in, I find him too amateurish & obnoxious to be worth supporting.)
- Soma is at 5.6€... Game came back on my radar when I heard they added a combat-free experience for people who prefer walking simulators. Should have bought when it was bundled, ah well... Anyone wanna gift their HB version to me? :P
- Ray Gigant, another JRPG + visual novel, mixed reviews though, so even at a low price (4.2€), I'm not sure whether to buy now or not.
I still have about 20 more games I'm thinking of buying, but these are the ones I'm most likely to take. Steam wallet isn't infinite, either.
How about you guys...? And be sure to tell me if I made you want to buy one of those games, too! ;)
