My wallet's all itching and ready to fly open in callous disregard for my personal finances... but I just can't find anything on sale that I actually want to buy! :(

I want the new Deus Ex, but I'm not sure my computer will handle it. I've just got the basic Intel graphics card. I'm also tempted by Portal 2.

They had a flash sale off Warlock Master of the Arcance, which plays like if Civ V shifted its focus from management to combat, which is pretty good. Haven't seen anything else I really want that I don't have. Terrarria was awesome, but I've pretty much played it out.

Pretty sure you're not going to run much of anything with the onboard graphics. Portal 2, especially.

Ah well, guess I'll never find out, since neither game seems to provide a demo.

And then they moan about piracy.

It looks nice, but I'm more into the management than the combat - which is and always has been weak in these kind of games.

ehhh, I haven't done too much with it yet, but it seems like there's enough choices to keep it interesting. Unit variety may be the biggest sore point, although I'm still at that stage where my learning curve is making the Ai seem unduly intelligent.

Missed out on the YS Origin flash sale courtesy of only finding out about the sale when it was only going to last another 11 minutes, not being able to remember whether I had enough money, and pissing around with the forgotten password thingy. Fuck the entire universe! :argh:

YAY! I finally bought a game: Bastion for $3.74.

Now if they'd just stop loading their deals with FPS games, I might be inclined to spend some more!

Worth the price. I enjoyed what I played, but it didn't hold my interest past the first half-dozen levels.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere and art style. I wish the abilities worked as advertised and had harder stats displayed.

I keep wanting to get in on the sale, but can't choose. There's too many options :(

i caved and bought Endless Space at full price (30€), i figured even if it goes on sale the game has only been out for 2 weeks and it wouldnt be much cheaper

i will still wait and hope Crusader Kings 2 goes on another 75% off sale, that would be tits :popcorn:

I did see it on sale on the first day (I think) if the sale, but it was only 10% off so I didn't buy it.

I am interested though, so if you can write up a little review of how it plays, I'd appreciate it!


4th game bought: Portal 2 for $4.99.
