To The Moon and Towns, I think I'm actually running out of things to buy in these sales.

I had to copy and paste from my Steam history. I don't remember what I paid for most of them, which is why I didn't list prices.

Just click on Store Transactions (one the same page as your history) and it will tell you. If you entered codes to get some of the games, though (like buying on Amazon and activating on Steam), it lists as "free."

"Frozen Synapse
Botanicula"

Haven't played most of the other ones, but these are great games to look forward to!

Looking at my history...I actually didn't buy anything for myself from Steam this sale. I got my brother KotoR 2 (he just recently beat the first one) and DoW 2 for Christmas.

I have gotten games recently, but many of them have been gifted to me (SR3, Grimrock, RF: Armageddon, SPOICE MAHREEN!). The only games I've purchased recently are KoA (on Amazon, activated on Origin) and the Desert to Sea Bundle on Amazon (only kept the Spec Ops code for myself).

Basically, I'm trying to say we have a ton of awesome people on the VGF who like to gift games to each other.

Ah. Edited my previous post.

Have you played any of Spec Ops, yet? As someone that is openly against the "realistic" military shooter genre, I'm interested in your thoughts.

Yeah, I played the demo for Frozen Synapse, and really liked it. Once I get a hang of the game, we should play some PvP matches.

I have not. I've been putting most of my time over the last few days into TWD, since I had issues with losing my save and I want to finish it.

I know about the twist in Spec Ops. While this may take some of the emotional impact away from it, I would have never even considered playing the game if it wasn't for the ways that it tries to differ from the rest of the genre. I have heard the combat can be a chore, so play on easy.

And I will be posting my thoughts on it.

"RF: Armageddon"

I didn't gift that to you; I dumped it on you.

In reply to an earlier post on Jan 7, 2013 2:18:50 PM PST
LMAO.

It's not the greatest game ever, but it's retarded fun. I mean, almost everything in the environment is destructible. The weapons and vehicles are ridiculous and a blast to use.

I saw him playing that one day. Considered sending him an "I'm so sorry" message.

That Emu Kid says:
I played a bunch of PvP for Frozen Synapse when it came out, but only a couple SP missions. It's fun, and watching the replays where you can see both sides is really cool. My proudest moment was when the last guy alive was hiding behind low cover with only one good entry point... I had my rocket guy blow a hole in a wall so I could simultaneously flank him from both sides rather than run into what was essentially a death trap.

Guys, I'm sitting right here...

Kirksplosion says:
Heh, yeah, maybe we'll play some PvP. I played through all of the single player campaign, but never tried the PvP.

From what I have seen, Armageddon actually isn't bad if you take it for what it is. I think that RF: Guerrilla caused some people to have raised their expectations and so Armageddon is considered a bad game because it was different than what they had hoped for.

I didn't find it to be that much of a chore playing on normal. It is fairly generic stop 'n pop cover shooting, but there's nothing broken about it.
