Having a blast with Wasteland 2, baring a few bugs. What an incredibly fun RPG. A true successor to the original, one of the very first games I have ever played. Can't recommend enough.

WL2 is an excellent game, sadly there's been a couple of times where I should have picked skills more carefully for some characters.

Have to agree, Wasteland 2 is a lot of fun. Somehow I've acquired two cows and a goat, which is making the combat a bit tedious - I can't bear to see the poor things killed and keep reloading...

Gave this a try in the beta and discovered the Steam Music player can't play FLAC files. Guess that's either disappointing or irrelevant, depending on how you ripped your music collection.

Was trying to ignore all the positive Wasteland 2 talk, since I really don't need any more games... Failed...

Fortunately I don't have a joystick, so it should be easier to resist Elite: Dangerous, at least for a bit longer...

I have currently 145 hours into this (seriously). I had finally earned enough to buy the GRAND DADDY super huge DELUXE Lakon Type 9 freighter! She was a BEAUT! 440 cargo capacity, shields of the GODS, the abilty to easily jump entirely across the known galaxy on a tank of gas. 3 MILLION credits to own.

I flew one mission with it and began exiting a station for a second run with my big, beautiful shiny new ship

Then I clipped the side of one of the long pylons that sticks out of the sides of some of the different stations you don't usually see and in one single flash of light and poop.

My ship was gone.

I think I died a little on the inside when I realized that I had used all of my money to buy the ship and the cargo I was currently hauling.

I didn't have enough money for the insurance to buy my ship back...

So, I saddled up in my free Sidewinder and...quietly...I headed back out into the black with my heavy heart.

To do it all over again. YES I love this game that much

Great story, makes me think of playing the X:blabla series somehow... It's not fancy videos but reading stuff like this that makes me want to buy the game.

But I'm not much of a flying game fan any more, haven't even had a joystick since the 20th century. Wonder if it's playable with the 360 controller I use for all the cheap console ports...

Ah, whatever. Plenty of other games without consolitis on the market. Back to Divinity: Original Sin. Buy this instead of this console crap and send Microsoft and the XBone a message by doing so.

Saw some good deals on this new Fable thing, but thankfully I forgot to buy it.

But you're not kidding about Divinity: Original Sin, it's very good. Reminds me of the fun I had playing Baldur's Gate for the first time. Anyone who enjoys RPGs should give it a look - especially if you already bought it but forgot to play...

At 5 bucks for the base game and 10 for the game plus DLC, is Kingdoms of Amalur worth it? and who actually gets paid since 38 Studio's has been dead for a while?

No idea who gets the money, the publisher presumably. Steam says that's 38 Studios and EA...

As for the game, I got it in a previous sale. Think it was pretty good - but somehow I only played for 15 hours. Distracted by some other game? Bored? Don't remember, unfortunately.

Probably got $10 worth of fun out of it, but can't recall enough about the game to say anything specific. Doubt I was anywhere near the DLC, either. Vague sense of low difficulty, and hmm... I do remember some text or the map or something wasn't displayed correctly @ 2560x1600 so I had to use 1920x1200. Think a lot of folks called it a single-player MMO, which sounds about right. Hopefully someone else can give you better info!

Now you can not only buy, and not play games, you can install them and not play them!
I used to do that. When I bought a game, I would install it immediately whether I intended to play it right then or not. I haven't done that in a while though. Now I install games when I'm ready to play them. My Steam directory is 475GB, and that's after uninstalling some games I don't play anymore and playing some that I had installed and removing them.

Yeah, gave up once I discovered bundles. It's hard enough remembering what games I bought the past week, let alone installing them...

This is some good timing. I was just about to retire my two raid0 74gb raptors for a new samsung ssd as my gaming drive...not because either raptor that i bought in 2005 died mind you, but because they just wont die...ever...

Wow, forgot about that drive. Not much use today, but it sure was great back then. Still have mine lying around here somewhere, bet it still works too.

But enjoy the new SSD experience, if you haven't had one before! Even one of today's cheapest ones will probably blow you away...

How is the DLC integrated into DS2? Do I need to do it post game or is it all integrated?

Was going to look at the Metro Redux games, but remembered this DLC was today also...

If you played the original Dark Souls, it's a bit like entering the Artorias of the Abyss DLC area - you examine something in the world that sends you to the DLC area entrance. But very much unlike the Dark Souls 1 DLC, when you buy the Dark Souls 2 DLC a key is added to your inventory that tells you where to find said entrance. So you don't have to read a wiki or explore blindly or have a friend clue you in - for most people that's probably a big plus.

The entrance to the first DLC area "Crown of the Sunken King" is after the Black Gulch boss fight.

The entrance to the second DLC area (the one released today) "Crown of the Old Iron King" is after the Iron Keep boss fight.

Only spent five minutes in the new DLC area so far, reached the first bonfire and looked around a bit. Hope there's some NPCs you can talk to, as the "Crown of the Sunken King" was all exploring and fighting (unless I overlooked someone of course.)

If you're unsure about buying it, hmm...

Depends on what you want, I think. More places to see, more things to fight, more item descriptions to read, more loot. There's a fun three-NPC boss fight in "Crown of the Sunken King" that took several attempts on my NG+ character - apprently it's called the "Gank Squad Boss Fight."

So far, I'd rate Dark Souls 1's Artorias of the Abyss far above the Dark Souls 2 DLC - but that was just ridiculously good so maybe it's not a fair comparison.

Creators of Stalker? Wasn't it revealed that very few of these guys were on GSC's team and those that were just happened to be there in the very early stages and left years before the release candidate was even ready to be burned to discs?

If anyone company is "the creator of stalker" out there, it's Vostok or 4A.

This whole mess caused me to reinstall Metro Last Light. God that game is good, even if it is linear.

Aha, thank you for mentioning Metro: Last Light! Reminded me that somehow I never finished the Metro 2033 novel. The Steam page says Metro: Last Light owners can download a free copy of Dmitry Glukhovsky's international best-selling novel "Metro 2033", the epic story that started it all. Don't know if the "?cc=us" trick lets you add the book to your account if you're not in the correct region, though.

Hmm, now that I think of it, never started Metro: Last Light either. Curse the endless steam sales, keep buying new games before I can finish the old ones...

At the risk of sounding too corny, I think anyone who can convince kids to read books is doing something special.

Although this probably isn't the best place to make the comparison, talk to some young people and you won't have any trouble differentiating between those who love to read and those who love to, umm, play video games...

My kids love to do both, and get addicted to both in very similar ways. There's very little difference when it's time to do something and I have to pull a book or pull a tablet or controller out of their hands.

I've loved games and books for as far back as I can remember. I think reading is one of those fun activities that provides unexpected benefits. Apologies for generalising, but one difference I've noticed between insatiable readers and those who only read when it's required is the ability to communicate effectively, i.e. a bigger vocabulary, the ability to explain what they are thinking, have a conversation, and convince you that you're all wrong about something.

And as much as I enjoy reading, I think it's difficult to beat the interactive experience of making things happen on a computer, especially when you're young and everyone else is making decisions for you.

Don't know if programming is taught in schools any more, so probably things like Minecraft would work just as well. When the light bulb goes off, and you realise you don't have to be a passive consumer of "computer stuff" - you have an idea, you can make it happen, it's magic.

Ok, heard too many good things from everyone, finally broke down and bought Divinity: Original Sin. Don't remember any of the older games, so either I never played them or it was so long ago I forgot. Hope no previous knowledge is necessary to enjoy this one!

Used to play a lot of the roguelike games like Moria, Angband, Nethack, ADOM etc. so I'm not afraid of ASCII or user-hostile interfaces, but somehow I could never get into Dwarf Fortress. If I can forget my Steam backlog long enough it might be worth giving this another try...

Couldn't resist getting this, the Might & Magic series was never my favourite but nostalgia wins out over common sense, again...

I guess people who actually want to play the old stuff would buy the Might & Magic I-VI pack from gog but looking at things in your steam library and reminiscing is probably more fun than playing sometimes.

@ 50Kyu:

You've got some gems in there:
- Brothers (must have a controller. don't play with kbd / mouse)
- Gone Home
- Gunpoint
- Rogue Legacy
- BG2 (you knew that already)
- Torchlight 2
- Mass Effect

Also, I heard AC4 is great, but haven't played it. And I had a blast with Bulletstorm, although I know there are others who don't like it.

Ok, just finished Gone Home, wow! Short game, but great. Now I'm wondering what other little treasures I may have picked up in previous sales and promptly forgot about...

Will wait on Baldur's Gate II until after I finish the Steam Baldur's Gate - hopefully I still remember how to play. I find it's tricky to jump back into RPGs - can't remember what I was doing or how to do it.

BG2 was my first hardcore D+D experience, and I knew nothing about THAC0, etc...totally hairpulling experience, trying to figure out WTF was going on. Still an awesome game, and I don't regret it...


Never played much D&D in real life, but have always loved the computer RPGs like Wizardry, Ultima, Bard's Tale, the SSI "Gold Box" games, plus all the dozens I've forgotten. Wouldn't have the patience to draw maps on graph paper today, but it sure seemed fun at the time.

I remember getting out of work early to pick up my Baldur's Gate preorder, and when I got to the store the price had been raised $5. The guy working there gave some kind of smug comment like "You know you'll buy it anyway" and he was right, but he didn't have to sound so happy about it.

Already have a controller, couldn't play stuff like Dark Souls without it!

Haven't played more than a few hours in any of the previous Assassin's Creed games, but everyone's said how much fun the pirate ship stuff is so I should probably take a look at some point.

Will wait on Baldur's Gate II until after I finish the Steam Baldur's Gate - hopefully I still remember how to play. I find it's tricky to jump back into RPGs - can't remember what I was doing or how to do it.

Suspect I'd have the same problem with Mass Effect, so maybe I should try some new games instead of replaying old ones.

Looked around in the Secret World for a while, the hunting for hidden stuff sounded interesting but it also felt like I'd played the game before - guess MMOs will always feel like MMOs...

Gone Home doesn't sound like one I've played before, will give that a try next. Thank you for the suggestions!

Ahh, the Steam sale. Apologies for the spam incoming...

Looks like I got around 150 games, most of which were random cheap things I'll never play. Think the only wishlist game was Baldur's Gate II: Enhanced Edition, and remembering how long it took the first time I'll probably never play the Steam version.

Also, I got busy and didn't buy all the games I'd been saving for the last day, so it could have been worse. Guess my biggest regrets were missing the Russian store price mistake for Valiant Hearts: The Great War and forgetting to buy Barbie Dreamhouse Party at the 50% discount.

Wonder if I managed to buy a few good ones by accident:
