Papo y Yo – 3.74

Admirable in the thems that game tries to convey in a videogame. That's where all the positives end for that game though.

Yeah which is why I'm picking it up for $3.74 and not $14.99. I've heard it's kinda janky, but I'm okay with that.

So many early access games on sale...

Just shows to me that early access isn't about getting the people interested who want to help development.

It's about making as much money as possible from a broken/unfinished product. And as long as they are this successful, we'll get more and more broken and unfinished products for PC. I hope people realize that.

So far it all the early access games that have been listed on daily are the ones that are being actively updated and are near release(wasteland 2 releases aug and divinity:OS releases next week) . People should atleast give them a chance.

There are TONS of games don't get updated very often and they never go on daily sale.

Why ? People are better off waiting until the game is actually released.

What about Project Zomboid. Is that close to release ? 7 days to die ?

There are some early access games that I'm interested in (DayZ, Broforce) But I refuse to buy any game that is in early access because I don't want to send the message to devs and publishers that I want even more broken and unfinished games on steam. Enough people do that already.

Nah, there are ten days, every team has a chance to win.

At first it looked like purple would win every day (they were in the lead for two days) but now it seems to me that every team will win at least once.

Last light has a high chance of being featured as a daily, but we don't know what day

And borderlands could return as a community pick or flash sale.

But you never know

Bought Final Fantasy VII and VIII. $4.07 each.

Also Deus Ex: Human Revolution for $4.99. I bought the combined pack last summer, but wanted to stealth the game, so I got fucked at the first boss. Having paid I think it was $6 for the two of them (HR and it's expansion DLC) I have no trouble spending another $5 to get the best version of the game. I've paid far more than $11 for a game and played it significantly less.

Was waiting on Battleblock: Theatre to go on sale. It's the game I really wanted from this sale.

Picked up Wolfamongus too, which is now the ugliest made up world my mind has created so far.

I'm really feeling either Europa IV, CoH 2, or Rome II will be on sale today. Getting the new DLCs for those games has been my priority this sale..

Hitman Absolution and Castle Crashers are absolute steals.

I would also very much recommend Insurgency to anyone looking for a modern day shooter that is different from other games.

I'm going to wait until Wolfamongus and Walkingdeadseason2 are complete until I buy them.

Same with Broken Age

Nope, wouldn't recommend it in a million years. The combat is just awful, and that's what the game is mainly about.

I heard it's better in co-op, but I'm done with the game. Not going back.

I'm just happy that Dying Light and Dead Island 2 are shaping up to be better, or at least that's my impression so far.

Same here,played few hours and didn't really enjoy it.

There must easily be better co-op games around this time

Get it. Dark Souls is the best game on sale today.

I'll admit I was also very on-the-fence about this game at first. When I tried it I didn't feel any better. Getting past the tutorial area is easy enough, but there's a steep difficulty spike when you get to Undead Burg (at least, for a player who's totally new to the Souls games). To be honest, I didn't really start enjoying Dark Souls until I rang the first bell. Everyone's experience varies, but trust me--once you reach the point where you start understanding the game mechanics and appreciating the intricately-designed, non-linear world, you won't stop playing. It's by far the best 7th-gen RPG I've played and one of the best games ever made, so at $4.99 it's definitely worth at least trying.

The game still uses GFWL unfortunately (although I never had any issues) and is a shitty port by itself, so you'll want DSfix to uncap the framerate and increase the rendering resolution. The online community on PC is still going strong, from what I hear.

I dunno, some great games can be bought for so little money, money you could easily get by selling trading cards or those summer adventure cards.

Think about that. Hours of enjoyment paid for by someone who bought your trading cards.

Well there's only 2 story DLCs, which you can get for like 2.49 (season pass)

Grabbed Enslaved: Odyssey to the West Premium Edition for $4.99. Been wanting to try it for ages, but could never justify more than that for a game with such mixed reviews.

I've got so many of these games already, so while the crazy sales are really tempting, either I've already got it, or I know, even if I buy it, I'm not going to play it, ever.

I'm gonna hold out until there is a complete collection like Saints Row 3. Still have to finish that one anyway :P

@R4gn4r0k: i explored it very little, however,

you can play multiplayer against humans (with or without AI in there as well)

you can play multiplayer skirmish against the AI alone

aside from missing things like single player, it felt pretty complete to me. runs really fast but that's deliberate. Art style is simple and clearly deliberately 'technically minimilistic' in order to keep the game fast when the screen is densely populated.

I like the artstyle from what I've seen so far. How does it look in action, I mean in big battles ? :p

Is there a lot of variety when it comes to maps ? And with how much can you play online 6v6 ? 8v8 ?

Don't mean to bother you with a load of questions but this is certainly a game I can see myself picking up down the line (when it's out of EA)

It's just that when I search the 'RTS' tag on steam and look at new releases there are a bunch of old games there, which makes me depressed. I jump for joy when I see a new RTS like this. Even if sci-fi isn't my favourite setting for an RTS. But this game seems to make good use of its setting :)

No

The game was announced and released on PC very quietly. Suddenly the news was there that a premium edition would come to PS3 and PC. People thought they had mistaken '360' with 'pc' and the next thing we knew the game was on steam.
