So, snipers are op?

Not at all, nothing is OP.

Read my reply to crownkingarthur. You die fast but there is a layered combat system to be found.

#502 Posted by bigblunt537 (6845 posts) -

So far I've purchased Arma 3, New Vegas, and Insurgency.

#503 Posted by bigblunt537 (6845 posts) -

Anyone play Insurgency? It looks kinda cool.

Just got around to playing it and I think it is great. It is difficult, but once you get the hang of it it becomes addictive!

Just bought Nether for 2.99, not bad for the price.

#507 Edited by R4gn4r0k (16427 posts) -

Some good deals today. I'll be getting Brothers and Splinter Cell Blacklist

Everyone needs to get Shadow Warrior for 7 dollars/euro

Words can not express how awesome this game is, so here is a screenshot:

Metro LL,yay!

Anyone played Blackguards?Looks nice

Just bought Nether for 2.99, not bad for the price.

I read the community is terrible to new players and is essentially pay-to-win.

I was tempted and the concept is amazing, but the execution seems horrible. They didn't put anything in to protect noobs from high-level assholes. Even if the game is supposed to be a "roguelike" there should be protection in a multiplayer setting. It'll kill the community very quickly (and the reviews for the game really suggest this is the case).

The thing is how many MP games are noob friendly, answer is pretty much none of them. I seriously doubt the community is worse than the Dota 2, LoL and DayZ communities. I've only played about 34 minutes of Nether so I can't really complain or praise it except I do hate the questing in it.

Hows Surgeon Simulator?

Hows Surgeon Simulator?

A good laugh.

#513 Edited by MonsieurX (29966 posts) -

#514 Edited by intotheminx (598 posts) -

I've gotten, Battleblock Theater, Dead Island, Mortal Kombat 9, Pay Day 1&2, Risk of Rain, and Terraria. I don't see anything too appealing atm.

@MonsieurX:

Lol, but that's probably true about gaming in general.

More good and worthwhile games coming out than you could ever possibly play.

#518 Posted by Ballroompirate (22736 posts) -

Ugh right when I say I'm not gonna buy anymore games during the steam summer sale, they make Splinter Cell Blacklist $7...

#519 Posted by parkurtommo (26742 posts) -

I wouldn't buy that game if it were 1 cent lol

#520 Posted by R4gn4r0k (16427 posts) -

Among the games won in the summer adventure thus far I found this

You're crazy. Its the best playing Splinter Cell game yet.

#522 Posted by StrifeDelivery (1464 posts) -

I'm also curious about Blackguards. Reading some Steam reviews can be misleading, since people give games a negative review but you read the review to find out a game isn't what they specifically wanted (such as one review that was excited that the game was an RPG then gave a negative review because it was turn based).

#524 Posted by mems_1224 (46931 posts) -

I got Insurgency and played it for about an hour and its really cool but really hard. The smoke that comes out when you fire your gun looks awesome

#525 Posted by sailor232 (4574 posts) -

Bought Metro LL last night, my crossfire 6950's hurt so much, game is on very high with 2x ssao and getting average 34 fps haha, still playable and looks amazing. Not bad for 4 year old cards.

#527 Edited by CrownKingArthur (4633 posts) -

yes i saw that. it came from some tiny little website nobody has ever heard of called 'reddit'.

good to see humans cooperating.

#528 Posted by thehig1 (1671 posts) -

@Ballroompirate: got nether myself.

By any chance do you know how to change the resolution in the game.

I have to use my small monitor to play it instead of my TV.

Because it goes black when I launch on my TV because my TV max resolution is only 1280 X 768

I cracked and bought New Vegas. I had a Visa gift card though, so no real monetary/wallet damage.

I know there is a way once you make a character in the top part of the screen there's the setting option, don't know if there is one in game though which imagine there is one.

It's a very challenging hex grid turn based rpg with a lot of environmental combat interaction. It's great at long as you accept that you'll probably be remaking your character at least once, since unoptimized characters become a liability later in the game.

Anyone got an opinion on Brothers? It looked very attractive in the into video.

This one also caught my eye. I checked out GS's review (7) and it sounds a bit rough, but enjoyable if you're willing to put in the time/focus to level properly. Tempted to pick it up, but going to browse the next Flash sales first to see if another RPG grabs my attention.

I sorted it in the end Resolution Change in Nether.

I think you can change it in game, bu I get no options in game as it stays in Ghost mode. Only was I can quit is by pressing Alt-Tab and closing the game from task manager

#535 Posted by parkurtommo (26742 posts) -

@Postosuchus: Brothers is very good at this price. It's short, but for that price you can't go wrong. I haven't finished it yet, but it's really cool so far.

#536 Edited by superclocked (5823 posts) -

Here's what I've gotten so far..

The Witcher 2 Enhanced, Metro Last Light Complete, Defy Gravity Extended, The Amnesia Collection (1 & 2), Terraria, Monaco, Nether, Hotline Miami, Skydrift + DLC, Myst V, a few copies of Skyrim to trade with people, and I'm thinking about getting the Alien Breed Trilogy (1,2,3), FTL Advanced, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons, and I may finally get Outlast and Borderlands 2 if they go on sale again, too...

I've had my eye on it. It got a very high metacritic score..

Great game that can be finished it one sitting. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Must be played with a controller.

What's so wrong with Dota 2 community, exactly. I had a 1000 hours so far in the game, I have mostly good things coming from that community. Outside of nonlanguage speaking individuals and the occasioanl asshole, I generally get good output from the community.

If you have 1000 hours logged into Dota 2 you should know how bad the moba community is towards noobs and beginners.

#549 Posted by darkspineslayer (19603 posts) -

Steam Sales are rather easy to manage when you have a shit PC, PS+ and prefer to play indies on Vita. Managed to keep it down to Borderlands 2 GOTY, Spekunky, Mark of the Ninja, Skyrim, Brutal Legend and picked up Rollercoaster Tycoon and Bastion today.

#550 Posted by santoron (7717 posts) -

Added the Blackwell collection, Blackguards, and Call of Juarez: Gunslinger. Serious Sam Bundle is wayyyy more Serious Sam than I need. But what a deal!
