I have bought nothing in the sale yet and I'm knee deep in hardcore pruning my wishlist.
I'm bad at this Steam sale thing, am I ?

No, but seriously, there come a point every few years / months where you have to do a deep cleaning. Not that everything I remove is bad, some sting, but a day is 24 hours, not more.

The sad part ? I would like for my list to be a minuscule...
250 items
My wishlist sits at 27 items right now, didnt stop me from buying (almost) all The Sims 4 packs and too much other stuff :grimacing-face:

lovely piece. I hope they dont mess this game up... (the demo ran like garbage, unfortunately)

Monster Hunter World sales from the Capcom leak. I'm guessing not all the PC Asia sales are from Steam since it's on the WeGame client in China. Still it did insanely well on PC and is closer to the PS version than I would have imagined.
We're just a few short years from much of the industry proclaiming the "death of PC gaming" and a japanese former console exclusive series is outselling the most popular console in multiple territories (for Iceborne) despite launching much later.



Seeing the PC platform going from strength to strength makes me really happy.

Can't decide which of these are gonna be my CP2077 library cover. Im currently thinking most about using the last one.
Those are all good looking. This is the CP2077 library cover I've been using since I pre-ordered months ago

Honestly I think they just wished for that. Consoles are much easier to control.
Seems to me it's the same reason why the Borderlands studio guy said he could see Steam being a :dying platform in 5 years"... it's what he would like to see. Just removed from reality.

I couldn't agree more, this is the one thing that all the big publishers abhor about PC gaming and Valve : they are firmly user-centric, the user has control and they have to work to attract the user's interest. They don't get to dictate terms, they don't get to impose indefensible things on us because more often than not, if they push too far, piracy on one side and a tremendously fierce competition in the indie space on the other are here to keep them honest.

Pretty sure that The Good Life is Day 1 on Game Pass, for those who aren’t averse to such things.

TW101 now has a demo, haven’t played it yet but apparently it’s fairly substantial (~2 hrs according to Platinum)

Damn, that game has some long legs and people are still playing and new people are still discovering it.
I'm not a fan of the way it plays but there's no way in hell i'm not going to recognise it's success.

I would like to try GTAO, but people say it's full of hackers :thinking-blob:

Oh btw, first purchase of the sale ! The two xpacs for Civ VI on... CDKeys.

Wait, they got rid of the papercraft/low poly art style? That's so disappointing, now it just looks like a common, low budget game...
Good thing the appeal of Swery games is the writing.
I'm just surprised that Rockstar hasn't announced a standalone version of GTA Online like Red Dead Online.
They announced a standalone GTAO months ago.


There will also be a new standalone version of GTA Online coming in the second half of 2021, which will be available for free exclusively for PlayStation 5 players during the first three months.

MudRunner is a pretty decent game, not as good as Snowrunner (tried an arrrrr copy back when it released), but still decent fun, wondering when Snowrunner will hit Steam, the month of 1 year EGSexclusivity is over or when all the DLCs are out.

To this day I still have not finished a single GTA game.
San Andreas is the only one I played for for any significant time back in the day and didn't finish that one either.
I finished 3, Vice City, San Andreas, 4 and its two expansions but I still haven't bought 5. :smiling-face-with-smiling-eyes:

All this GTA V talk is making me want to play the game. I just beat it once on PS3 after all.
I'd say go for it. Back in the day I played the Xbox 360 version on my ex's console, but playing the PC version later was just such an improvement. It's still good and all. The characters are still unlikable, but the rest is still fine. :)

Hmmm lets see... I dont think I finished the first one because it had a non-existent save system (but I cheated to see the other areas), and I hardly did missions.
I might have finished GTA 2 but I'm not sure if "legitimately". Its save system was rather rubbish (but at least it had one). In any case I played GTA 2 and unholy amount of hours because it was a lot of fun.
I finished GTA 3, Vice City, San Andreas, GTA IV, as well as GTA V.

Mor I love, love, love my gimmicky voice controlled RGB LED lights. I even have some of the Philips Hue Lightbars stuck on the back of my monitor for some extra moody responsive lighting. Love that stuff. I'd have some Nano-Leaf too but i'm still not sure about the quality and reliability.

Im gonna wait until 13 Sentinels is at least half off on a sale before buying it in hope that a PC version is announced by then.

"Can you Pet the Dog?" is so 2020.
2021 is all about "Can you BE the Dog?"

Farewell North - You can be a Border Collie!

I may be biased, game may be rubbish but it has Border Collie in it so it's auto-good imo.
This and The Good Life helping 2021 be not as shit as 2020 already.
