Anyone buy anything good on the Steam Summer Sale, yet? I bought Stardew Valley and am a few minutes from starting it up for the first time.
Taking opportunity to praise PC game sales. The lovely community model of steam/valve allows clients of mine to now tip me with crap on my wishlist. Being a Sony kid up until present this is new and awesome for me.
I just got the gaming PC up and running 2 weeks ago and already have waaaaaaaaay more titles on it than I do console. Long term cost effective gaming is apparently a major appeal of steam/gog/origin et cetera, that totally eluded me.
But to the point, steam summer sale specifically....
-Ys Origins, Ark, and Oath
-Pillars of Eternity 2
-Incitement 3 (1 and 2 included)
-All the Endless Legends expansions and DLC
In other news.
LEGEND OF MANA/ I was happy to see Gilbert's rocky fate (hahaha, see what I did there?) as I have a degree of contempt for hopeless romantics. Then it was back to the junk-heap thanks to my cactus' shenanigans. Pretty sure my sequence of reporting in to the cactus got screwed up now since he wasn't there until after I finished the broom quest-line which then negated my ability to report what I finished prior. --- Please no one tell me how bad this screws things up (if it in fact does) as I will become discouraged. I would prefer to maintain ignorance in the matter. I sort of went into this game knowing full well I was going to miss content playing blind anyhow (the game sort of doesn't leave you much chance NOT to miss things with your first playthrough it seems).
EDIT__ I have my PC hooked up to a 40 inch Samsung monitor. I sit roughly 3-4 foot away (just enough for field of vision) in a theatre-like set-up. At the expense of burning out my eyeballs eventually, this is EXACTLY how I dreamed of playing the Ys games since I discovered them years ago. My attempts at various means of upscaling since then have always left something to be desired.
Long story short. ^^ this set-up + Ys on steam = a 1080'progressive dream come true for me.
