Suppose to start today 12:55 EST. and run until July 9th. Hoping for good sale on IL-2 GB titles. My son got $80 in Steam cards for Fathers day. Those are really the only titles I am interested in.

I still need a couple of planes for IL-2 Battle of Stalingrad so if those go on sale I'll buy them. There's nothing else out right now that interests me. The 12-13 games I currently have installed on my PC keep me plenty busy anyway.

Just added 3 x DLC for Hunter:Call of the Wild.

I've been tempted by Cloudpunk and Satisfactory (which are both on sale) but not sure they have staying power for me.

I wish more game companies released demo's. That doesn't seem to be a thing anymore. I used to love my monthly PC mags with their cover discs and demo software etc. I suppose the internet put paid to that.

There actually was a "demo week" last week on Steam, but unfortunately AAA games were shining in absence, with most of the demo's being Unity junk

Absolutely. Now someone could argue why don't publishers make demos that you can just download from Steam or some other online service but that seems to have been replaced by the occasional "free weekend" events where you can play a game for free for a limited time. Haven't you noticed that these "free weekend" trials have become more common since the pandemic lock down? The publishers definitely want to take advantage of the fact that many people are still stuck at home most of the time.

75% of IL-2 Battle Of Stalingrad / Battle Of Moscow / Battle Of Kuban.
50% off Battle Of Bodenplatte / Flying Circus
Most aircraft are 75% off, a few are 50%.

Looks like the Game developer site is matching the prices, for those who prefer to buy that way.

Just checked Il2 Stalingrad deluxe. Is the content for the deluxe only 2 more planes or there's other things too?

edit: bought the deluxe anyway + the fortress of the volga

Have you tried the Silver Ridge map yet in Call of the Wild?

I don't have that one Alicatt.

I thought that you could play all the maps in MP as long as one of the players owned it. If so I've yet to see it. Is it any good? (assuming you have it).

*edit* Just joined a MP session on that map and took 3 Rocky Mountain Elk with 3 shots in 5 minutes with the black powder musket. Never had that luck before. There was a group of 3 Elk who didn't seem too bothered about me dropping one of them. The second was also a clean kill but I thought the third one was going to charge me but he ran past. I hit him but not clean so had to do track it down, It didn't go too far. I like this map smile

oh it's really quite nice, moving with animals just now too, interesting main mission line as well.

Yes you can play it MP as long as the host has the map, don't think you can do the missions in it on MP if you don't have the map.
Lots of elevation change in it and from open meadows to rocky cliffs, not explored it all yet, still got most of the top left and all of top right sections to explore.
It's their best offering yet, better than the Cuatro Carolinas (Spain map) and it made me feel right back in the Catalonia mountains

I think I'll buy this DLC. Thanks for the recommendation.

Half-Life: Alyx. It's unusual for me to pick up only one game during a summer sale, but nothing else seems worth the time.

ARMA 3 is nicely discounted during the summer sale.

In case you didn't know, SimHQ has an ARMA 3 server and we play weekly on Mondays at 8PM Eastern.

If you want to join us and chill, playing some ARMA 3, please do it. We're low on player count at the moment, even one or two people will really help us out.

To play with us, you need:
base ARMA 3 $8.99US

ARMA 3 Apex $8.49US

Global Mobilization DLC $11.49US

Total for those 3 addons is $28.97US

It's roughly $1.20 cheaper if you get the ARMA 3 Apex Edition (it's different than the Apex standalone) and the Global Mobilization, since there's a $5 give back from Steam on purchases over $30.


Plus a bunch of addons. Download link in the ARMA 3 forum.

If you have questions, you can PM me or post in the ARMA 3 forum. Let's not clog things up in this thread.

Thanks.

Got Metro Exodus in the sale... done 18 hrs on it so far!
Great game, massive open worlds, engaging story line... it's like Fallout 4, and Half Life, all rolled into one, it has that kind of feeling to it.

Just bought Terminator: Resistance due to the overwhelmingly positive reviews and the fact that I'm always game for a well made sci-fi shooter.
