I bought Limbo and a few other small games that were on crazy sales.

The other games on my wishlist cost more... and then I realized that because my brother and I hooked accounts I have access to all of his games... most of which were on my wishlist anyway :lol:

WELP

I totally understand, but I'm glad you did. I think I'm going to wait for the summer sale to get The House in Fata Morgana. That way I'll have more money in my bank account and more time to play it. (What was the average gameplay time for you guys?)


Cool. I hope you'll like it when you get around to playing.

It took me 27 hours to go through almost all of the game's content (including going out of my way to see bad endings). As Rose said, 30 hours is a good estimate :].

Jade Empire was 75% off so I caved. I'm reeeeally trying to restrain myself though because I virtually never play games on my PC. They just sit there making my desktop look pretty. I still have Hatoful Boyfriend and The Stanley Parable from the last sale and I haven't touched either of them :(

I played on mangagamers version so idk the hrs played but i think the general hours for the game is around 30, which sounds pretty close.

No worries. I usually don't like to discourage others from getting games, since you never know what really makes something entertaining to another person. But with that game I couldn't help it, aha.

And, yeah, The House in Fata Morgana would be a much better unsettling VN to play.

I am planning on getting the Xmas Shooting-Scramble for the Scramble Aru character in 100% Orange Juice, but that's it. My friend gave me Owlboy and Final Fantasy IX. I was able to get Alicemare as well.

I got a Steam giftcard for Christmas and ended up finding the last bit of games I actually want. I got Seasons after Fall, To the Moon, Undertale, Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines, two Magicka DLC and the Stardew Valley Soundtrack.

I'll likely be picking up Trails in the Sky SC, and The Wolf Among Us.
I've been wanting both of those games for some time now. (:

If you like good RPGs, I definitely recommend picking up Trails in the Sky, both the first and the sequel are on sale. They're super rich game worlds. It's a slow burn RPG, but it's so enjoyable in my opinion. All NPCs have unique dialogue that changes as the story progresses, a likeable cast of characters, fun and easy to learn battle system.

Also there's Death Road to Canada. It's a ton of fun survival game. You make a character and try to make it to Canada, looting stops along the way, with events occuring during travel, some of which are hilarious. You can either pick up random travelers along the way, or create custom characters to encounter on your travels. (Family and friends? Video game characters? Celebrities?)
It's also multiplayer so if you've got buddies over I recommend getting 'em together.

I have Sound of Drop-fall into poison and I do not recommend it ':D. Here's a list of why. None of it mentions anything specific from the game, but maybe others won't want to read it so it's in a spoiler tag.
Spoiler:
The story is cliched and simple, quite a bit of the horror stuff just comes off as goofy, the characters often times don't react to things in a reasonable/believable way, the English version has that stiff/awkward/no native English speaker would ever phrase something that way style (though some people don't mind that and also some conversations are so trope-y/inhuman they likely aren't that good in the original Japanese version either).

I was really disappointed by the squandered potential of the concept, as a haunted aquarium could be amazing. I can give specific examples from the game if you'd like.



I recommend the two Edna & Harvey games! They're really low priced right now and are such fun point-and-click games. I also recommend The House in Fata Morgana.

Games I really want are Aviary Attorney, VA-11 Hall-A, Owlboy, SoulSet (not on Steam just yet), and Downfall.

I think the only ones I'm going to be picking up are INSIDE and VA-11 HALL-A. Heard INSIDE was crazy good and I was a huge fan of Limbo, so it seems right up my alley. Plus it's short which is actually a pro for me at this point, lol.

I really want to get Umineko but I'm going to wait until the 2nd half of it is out before I even bother.

That's what I'm planning on doing with Umineko as well. I hope the soundtrack is included because I love the songs I've heard from it.

100% Orange Juice just released more DLC today and I just couldn't resist buying copies as Christmas gifts for a few friends. It's great how cheap the base game is now, too. I don't have a problem :P

Recommendations:
Closure: a puzzle-platformer with the unique mechanic of having to manipulate light in order to complete each level, because everything the light touches exists and everything else is a bottomless pit. Unfortunately, I can't describe the game very well, but, IMO, it's a great puzzle-platformer. I love the black and white (or dark and light, haha,) art style it has, and the puzzles can be challenging but never go into so challenging that the game is no longer fun. I thoroughly enjoyed my time with it and, if you like puzzle-platformers, I highly recommend you check this game out, especially since it's on sale for just a buck right now. A word of warning, though, if you don't like trial-and-error games this game probably won't be for you.

Freedom Planet: An action-platformer that has been described by many as what would happen if Sonic and Mega Man had a baby. The controls are nice and responsive, the pixel art is great, the music is great, the boss fights are fun, and the three playable characters play very differently from one another (which is a plus, IMO.) Check it out if you like retro platformers.

Wishlist:
There are too many games on my Wishlist for me the list them all, but the games I'm considering buying this sale are Stardew Valley and Rogue Legacy.

Seriously 10/10 amazing game and thank you so much trash mom RopeMaidenKirie for the recommendation. (and reminder that I need to play it) ;;

I got a bunch of indie games my boyfriend wanted us to play together for us and his YouTube channel. Nothing else really stands out for me to get.

I am pretty broke until the end of the month when I get paid but I went to go check out the sales and it seems that Steam is currently down. Hopefully it comes back up so I can scope some deals out today~

I'll add to The House in Fata Morgana (even if it wasn't currently on sale). I just read through the first door and hoooooooly shiiiiiiiit. It got me gud. I appreciate a VN that instantly sucks me in and can keep me interested, and it does just that. I'm not too keen on the vocals for the OST but ehhhhhh, I'm a pleb.


The game gets 100000% better later on SO STRAP URSELF IN. Tbh it didn't really hit me until like halfway SO UR IN FOR A RIDE.

Oh but fyi: there is a serious flash/epilepsy in chapter 2 (and I think a little later???). And probably the only criticism I have for the game...is that.
