If Aywren says it’s OK to talk about what games you’ve bought in a summer digital sale, then it’s clearly OK for all of us to do so as well.
I honestly wasn’t planning on picking up anything from the Steam summer sale, for two reasons. One, I prefer GOG.com as my digital platform of choice and get most of my non-MMO games through there if possible. And two, I have more than enough on my gaming plate as it is.
But I did start poking around after spotting one tempting sale and ended up nabbing three games for a little under $25, ones that I knew I would play and wouldn’t mind including for a future Try It Tuesday. So what did I get?
The Long Dark: This has been on my to-buy list for a long time now. I still haven’t really bought into the whole survival sandbox scene, but I dig the visuals and cold north theme of this one. Plus I’ve had friends play it and be quite enthusiastic about their experiences. Should be a trip.
The Stanley Parable: Never played it, it was $2, and everyone who has played it seems to love it for whatever reason.
Armello: Total wild card, impulse purchase buy right here. The graphics caught my eye and I hunkered down to read about this board game/RPG/card game hybrid. Game of Thrones intrigue and anthropomorphic animals? Sure, why not!
