It’s the recap of the sale

It’s the Grand Finale of the Summer sales on GOG and Steam. So, it’s the wrap-up/encore of all previous sales on the store. NOW is the time to buy any and all games that you haven’t so far. There won’t be a better discount until Christmas. If you’re curious about what I thought about previous sales, click this link here. GOG.com’s sale is still ongoing with plenty of flash sales. I’ve been keeping an eye on it to see if any older games I want go up for sale. I won’t mention those sales because they come and go far too quickly for me to keep up.

All good things must come to an end, just as this sale is. I’ve already talked about these games at length in previous posts. So, you’ll just have to go back to them to get my thoughts on today’s sales, because the sales are the same as before. However, I will include my top 10 best deals that you should definitely think about getting today from the front page.

  1. Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons
  2. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
  3. Age of Wonders III
  4. The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition
  5. The Stanley Parable
  6. Dishonored
  7. Terraria
  8. XCOM: Enemy Unknown
  9. Dark Souls: Prepare To Die Edition
  10. AI War: Fleet Command

Hehe, gotcha on the last one. AI War: Fleet Command is a great RTS where you are outgunned, outnumbered with a potent AI coming to destroy the remnants of Humanity. You. Must. Win. I always try to include this because it’s such a great game that’s getting yet another expansion later this year. It’s been in a constant state of development since it’s release in October of 2009 and is worth every penny. All of the DLC is worth it. I enjoy this game even after playing over 200 hours worth and I’m planning on starting it up again later this year.

All-in-all, I think GOG had the better sale this time around. Deeper discounts and a wider variety of games, GOG put on a great show of it this year. Steam’s wasn’t as bad but it felt lacking in comparison. There was some good deals but a lot of ok to not great ones. Too many Early Access games as well. That said, GOG’s flash sales started repeating themselves towards the end too. So, now with your wallets a little lighter, we can get back to our gaming.

I’m glad to be back and this series has been fun to do. I’m planning on doing this series for every significant Steam sale from now on. I experimented with the style this time around and I think I found a good groove for it towards the end. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps you! If you have any thoughts or suggestions on this series, please let me know down in the comments. The comment section does work now! I fixed the commenting bug that was preventing it for months.
