Another year, another Steam Summer Sale! Here’s what I bought this year.
This year was another crazy year of sales on Steam. I was also covering E3 with IGN, and I had some crazy personal events going on. Well, I was able to catch each Steam Sale update, and purchased a total of 11 games, which is a little weird since that’s the same amount I bought last year. Origin also had a sale, but nothing that it didn’t have anything I wanted.
Most of the items I bought were under $5, and I think all of them were under $10. Some were brand new to me, and some I played on console but wanted to buy for PC. The games I got are listed below:
- Metro Redux Bundle: I’ve actually played both Metro 2033 and Metro Last Light on Steam, but the Redux versions were on sale for $5 each. So I figured why not?!
- Audiosurf 2: I wanted to play a rhythm game on PC that would use my own music. This was the first one I came across.
- Higurashi: When They Cry: Higurashi was recently released on Steam. It’s a Japanese horror visual novel. I haven’t played it yet, but I’m really looking forward to it.
- Counter-Strike: Global Offensive: Everyone is always raving about Counter-Strike, so I figured I’d buy it. I played it for about an hour and a half, and I think it’s pretty fun. I played some casual game, but some players were still trying to act like they were playing competitive, and even tried to kick me in my very first game!
- Contrast: I played this on PS4, but I wanted it for PC too. It’s a really interesting puzzle-platformer.
- DreadOut: This seems to be a really short horror game that has some pretty good reviews. I have yet to play it, so I can’t comment on the game just yet.
- Tokyo School Life: Another Japanese visual novel. We’ll see how it goes!
- Please, Don’t Touch Anything: This was a really weird looking indie game. I think it was just over $1, and has about 20 endings that all revolve around pressing buttons and stuff on this control panel.
- Symphony: Another rhythm game, but this one is mixed with a shooter. It doesn’t quite rely on the rhythm like Audiosurf.
- Limbo: Another puzzle-platformer I played on another system that I wanted for PC.
- Fallout: New Vegas: I figured I’d buy this in anticipation for Fallout 4. I played through the main story on 360 MANY years ago, but never really played all the other stuff, nor did I get the DLC which game with this ultimate version.
I also downloaded and played a little Team Fortress 2. It’s free to play, so I didn’t include it in my summer sale list. What did you guys buy?
