That awkward moment when you go to buy games in a Steam sale, only to find out you already own them

If you're awake in the next 7 and a half hours, get Mount & Blade Warband, it's the best thing that'll ever happen to you.

Nerf the trailer for that game didn't really sell it for me... But after reading the reviews I figured I've spent $7 on worse things!

I bought Tales of Maj'Eyal Such an awesome game, if you like Rougelikes. You can play it free, but I felt it was worth sending some coin the devs way.

Grabbed a bunch of old Half Life related s*** that I didn't feel right not having on my Steam account.

As I look through the games on sale I don't really see many things I want. Only grabbed Walking Dead Season 2 so far.

I'm thinking of getting Far Cry 3, what do you guys reckon? Is it any good, I didn't mind the previous ones...

The storyline is utterly terrible and I am not sure if the writers knew it or not. The gameplay is fine if a bit repetitive. It can get a bit bland after you complete the first island.

Farcry 3 is alright. nothing to write home about though.

Rome II Total War is ok but I paid too much for it. I enjoyed Empire, Napoleon and Shogun 2 a lot more though. (Pretty much the opposite of every other fan out there)

Mount and Blade is ok but its gets turned up to 11 when you get the A Clash Of Kings mod. There is also a Lord of The Rings type mod for it too.

At the moment I am pretty apathetic with games and such. I only seem to play World of Tanks at the moment, I am in a gaming rut.

Welp, got that planet explorers thing, it's pretty and plays okay but not all that clear how to proceed through it.

On a side note, holy s***balls, was just looking through my steam purchase history, and apparently recently bought Arkham Origins, yet have no memory of this, and now feel like some sort of dirty compulsive shopper.

If Child Of Light is on sale I might grab it. That is the only game that I've seen recently that looks lovely and the gameplay looks really good.

I caved and bought sins and its dlc. Oh well. It would be strange if I didn't buy anything in a steam sale. I doubt there would be much else I am interested in even with the discounts.
Reverend Evil
Posted 11:51pm 21/6/14
Just found out that Child of Light is from Ubisoft and it has it's own launcher which is independent from Steam. Not gonna bother. It's bad enough Microsoft shafts people with that ridiculous windows live games crap. Now Ubisoft have to do it. Steam is all I need to launch games. If I download a game on Steam, i expect it to launch from Steam.

Damn, Wasteland 2 is on special for $40.19. Ill have to think hard about this.

I loved the first sins but found rebellion added f***all to the game and was pretty disappointed in it. still though, if you hadn't touched the first then it's definitely the way to go.

Mwahaha, told ya! Though I'm unsure if you're playing vanilla M&B or M&B: Warband, I personally just started on Warband and have nfi what the vanilla is like.

I loved Napoleon Total War, it improved on Empire pretty considerably even though i liked it as well. Shogun 2 wasnt bad but if i am totally honest i probably had more fun with original when it first came out. The little i played of Rome 2 today i enjoyed and at this stage i am pretty sure i am going to really like it.
