Steam Sale Day 8: I Found a New Title!

You know the drill by now, don’t you?

Good

-Mass Effect 2: Incredibly, really good. Well done, interesting to play, better than the first. Decent writing, too. Better if you’re a Jerk Shepard, though. Cheap as hell now, so if you’ve not picked it up, do!

-Fallout 3 GOTY: Honestly, I’m thinking of getting this and I own the 360 version. I just never got any of the DLC and $10 for the lot actually seems like a decent price. If you’ve never played Fallout 3, then this is a definite buy.

-Amnesia: Yeah, grab it. For a fiver it’s totally worth giving a go, it’s an interesting approach to horror in a game environment and it’s pretty fun with the lights off/headphones on etc.

Maybe, Baby

-Empire + Napoleon Total War: These look like my sort of thing, but they always come with this nagging feeling of not mattering. Like the systems underpinning everything are just broken enough that there’s no point actually giving it a good go because screw it it’s all random.

-Splinter Cell Conviction: Does a lot that’s been done better in other games, but it’s kind of fun too.

-Mafia 2: Lots of people say it’s great and anyone complaining of major flaws is being a ninny. I think they’re lying, but you may be more credulous.

-Worms Reloaded: Worms was always a pretty fun game. Maybe this is something you could pick up? Certainly not for more than $5, so now’s the time to do it.

-Dirt 3: I have no idea, whatever. Racing games, am I right ladies?

-Divinity 2: Some people recommend it, but again I bought The Witcher 2 so what do I care?

-Red Faction Armageddon: I guess the nice bit is the magnet gun being a laugh, the bad bit is that it’s a corridor shooter again. If you want a corridor shooter with inventive weapons, you could do worse.

NO

-Last Remnant: Holy shit, it’s like Final Fantasy with fetal alcohol syndrome. There are some beautifully done prose stories in it, but I’d rather pay $10 to have those sans game.

Universe Sandbox

-Universe Sandbox: You know if you want this.
