RE: Stellaris
I've been wanting this one. Might have bought it recently but at the same time Paradox said they'd be gifting it to the Battletech backers after they bought Harebrained. I haven't found any word about when or how. I assume it's to coax players into buying the dlc, which is just fine with me!
I've watched some videos and it looks like a great game, even though games of that type are often more complex than I want.


*A quick search showed that a few days ago they put a product key for Stellaris on your Battletech backer page with the downloads you got at your level of funding. Steam download, mine is going now.

I want to hear what you think of the Arkane games, if you feel so inclined. I have Mankind Divided. I'm also a big Deus Ex fan, but for whatever reason this one didn't pull me in like some of the earlier titles. Still a good Deus Ex game. But I still haven't finished it. It's the game in my library that I play for an hour or two when I can't make up my mind what I want to play.

About the combat game.... I haven't played either of your finalists, and I only played one of the Sniper Elite games, Sniper Elite V2, and Steam says I have 21 minutes on that game lol. Must not have clicked. With the summer sale on, I've been browsing alot, and one that really caught my eye is Freeman: Guerilla Warfare. I have no idea how good it is (comments are positive). But conceptually it appears to be the game I've had in my head for 15 years. Well, actually that game is Falcon 4, Steel Beasts and ArmA all in one. But this Freeman is also the sort of concept that I've had in my head for a long time. I really hope it turns out to be amazing. I've never bought early access but tempted here. It has a strategic layer, a tactical overview and control mode, as well as being a FPS. M&B Warband with guns. Anyone play it?

Dishonored 2 and Deus Ex Mankind just didn't do it for me for some reason. Loved the previous games and played through Dishonored multiple times. They seemed to change the formula in Dishonored 2. Can't remember what it was about the Deus Ex game I didn't care for? One day I'll get back to them again.
Currently replaying Mad Max. Still fun, still repetitive, but I guess the environment is what makes it.
Looks like Mad Max is just $5, that's an amazing bargain. I paid full console level price at release and never regretted it.

ES2 has a very tedious tutorial, I agree. Not sure how fun the game gets afterward, as I never made it past the tutorial. That said, I also think there is a quality game there, that makes a poor first impression.

Battletech has really sucked me in way more than XCOM2 did.

If I buy anything it will be the shifting sands module for CMANO.

Oh, and for those keeping score:
TotalSpend $1,846.95

It categories your spending under three main stats: total spend, old spend, and PW spend. Total spend is a tally of all the money you spent on Steam, whether that’s buying games for yourself, gifting them to others, or buying anything off the Steam Market.

This does not take into account games purchased outside of Steam that you redeemed on Steam, only things you actually paid Valve for. The total spend takes into account money taken directly out of your card, as well as Steam Wallet funds which you spent on the platform.

Old spend only shows the money spent up before April 17, 2015. You may remember that Valve instated a policy around that time that restricts users who have not spent at least $5 from trading, sending friend invites, or using the market.

This was done to cut down on bots, scammers and the like. The total spend stat includes the old spend as well.


I'm up to $1,172.18 total and $853.85 old. I have slowed down after a while due to the building backlog of games smile I'm still surprised at the total though!

Get a refund on that C&c bundle if you can, C&C 4 will kill your computer with shame (it is THAT bad).

I've been thinking of getting a PS4 for a while now and one of the games I'd play on it would be Tekken but I just realized that Tekken 7 is also available on the PC via Steam! Has anyone played this on PC? Maybe with a PS4 controller?

LOL
I didn’t want that one, but the bundle was cheaper than the other games even with them on sale.
