This year’s Steam Summer Sale is one of the worst kept secrets in PC gaming. Ever since it showed up as a slip of the enter key on VKontakte, I’ve been holding back on buying anything on Steam, GoG or the Humble Store. The only thing I’ve bought is a pre-order of Shadowrun: Hong Kong purely based on previous outings by Harebrained Schemes. I’m sure I’m far from the only one.
But we’re almost there, and I definitely have certain titles that I will be looking for.
The only ‘triple A’ title that I’m looking at is Shadow of Mordor. Put bluntly, I wasn’t sure if my computer could run it. Tried overclocking the CPU to play a similarly spec’d game and it worked, so now I’m definitely wanting to buy it. I’m also looking at getting the spiritual successor to Dungeon Keeper, War for the Overworld; it looks really fun and what I actually wanted when I bought Dungeons. Darkest Dungeon and Chroma Squad are my blind picks; hearing the good about these titles and being on the hype train for Chroma Squad since it’s Kickstarter.
There’s titles like There Came an Echo, Republique: Remastered and Ori and the Blind Forest that I may get if they’re super cheap. I may also get Fantasy Grounds depending on how heavy it is discounted, since I plan on getting a Dungeons and Dragons group together online and it’s had glowing reviews for people that want to splash out. We’ll see.
My budget is flexible as it’s always been. I’m trying to stick to the £50 wallet credit I grabbed yesterday but Steam will always manage to tease me.
Am I ready for a miracle? Ready as I can be.
