My recent GOG and Steam sale purchases

Believe it or not, I really haven’t spent a lot of money this year on games (or in games) at all. So I took some of my birthday money and splurged on a few titles in the recent GOG and Steam sales. And as Blogger Law dictates, I must now publicly brag about what I bought and why.

GOG.com

  • Dark Sun D&D 2-pack – These were pretty cheap and I had them on my wish list, mostly because I thought they’d make an interesting retro series one of these days. Plus, two for one!
  • Silent Service/Silent Service 2 – Only bought this for the second game, which was one of my absolute favorite sims when I was in high school.
  • Privateer 2 – The next time I touch a Wing Commander game for a retro series, it’s going to be one of the Privateer titles. I really wish I had owned these back in the day.
  • The 7th Guest – Spooky horror adventure game!
  • Ziggurat – The freebie that GOG threw our way

Steam

  • Everyone’s Gone to the Rapture – Wasn’t on sale but I’ve wanted to play this for a while, so I picked it up while I was buying. I’d rather spend more to get a game that I do want and will play versus buying cheap stuff that I won’t ever touch.
  • Telltale Games’ Guardians of the Galaxy – I’m really behind on all of my Telltale Games, but I think I’d like to do a marathon. Plus, I heard good things about this title!
  • Staxel – Bree and I got a little seduced by this charming multiplayer sandbox. Looks like it was potential, so why not?

    Fair warning, I watched Moiren stream Everybody’s Gone to the Rapture a while back, and of all the horror games she’s played, it was by far and away the most disturbing. It’s hard to even explain why because mostly all you’re doing is just wandering the countryside, and there’s not even monsters or anything, but… damn, that thing scarred my soul. Be prepared to have your mind crushed under a mountain of existential dread.

    Ziggurat is a fun freebie. Short doses of Hexen-like gameplay.

    I second the Ziggurat recommendation but warning: it is a lot more challenging and has a lot more depth than at first appears.
