*sigh*


Then again, I only plan on getting a multipack of Nidhogg, some EU IV DLC and two or three smaller games. The big names of this year (Assassins Asylum: Middle Earth, for example) won't go down to a price I'm fine with anyway.

Still getting used to the specific gameplay, but really enjoying Sins of a Solar Empire, Rebellion so far.

Is it just me, or is the sale really rather weak this year?

Not sure if weak or I already own everything.

I've still bought a few games.

Far Cry 4, for instance.

Like Rome said, partially because I own most of the "A" titles alread, but yea, some of the other sales are pretty weak.

Yes, there is the fact that I own many games, but I can't shake the feeling that the games I expected to be at least 75% off or so now - judging from the last years - just aren't. Also, the older games that used to be really dirt cheap aren't quite as fucking cheap.

I mean, as far as I have seen it's always been a difference of a couple of dozens of eurocents or ten percent or so, but in the end it hasn't really been in the realm of "holy shit, that is cheaper than my morning coffee today" like it used to be usually. Might just be the store's layout or my personal game related over-saturation, but I kind of feel left out this sale.

I've been waiting for Starpoint Gemini 2 to get a higher discount than the 33% it's had since the start, but it doesn't seem that's going to happen. :(

I presume everyone has bought Wolfenstein: The New Order today due to it being 66% off, as download speeds have been intermittently slow. Started off at 4 MB/S, then dropped below 500 KB/S, seems to be hovering between 1 and 2 MB/S now.

Mind you, I have already bought an inordinate amount of stuff in this sale.

I'm considering it, but doubting whether my laptop can run it smoothly.
