I admit that I love the big Steam Sales. I did figure out this year that I could sell all my unneeded trading cards during the sale to help lighten the burden on my wallet. Sure, it only saved me about five bucks, but that’s much better than I did last year when I lost a bunch of cards to expiration as the sale ended. I grabbed a bunch of DLC for games I already owned. I did pick up a few new games. Almost everything I bought was on my wishlist, so my willpower was a bit better than usual.
Here are the highlights:
Wolfenstein: The New Order — I played the original id Wolfenstein 3D back in the day. People I play with kept telling me how great the new version was. I believe it’s from former Starbreeze employees.
Crusader Kings II — I have a friend who loves it. He tells great stories from it. I’ll give it a try.
Age of Wonders III — Honestly, I don’t know if it’s a good or great games, but I want to support bringing back classic strategy series.
Blackguards — Remaking the Dirty Dozen as a fantasy strategy RPG. Yes.
The Wolf Among Us — I just love the premise. And Telltale.
Van Helsing II — I really enjoyed the first one and I kind of love Neocore Games.
Banished — We’ll have to see if this proves too frustrating for me, but it sounds intriguing. I like supporting indie strategy efforts.
That should keep me busy for a while.
