Autumn Steam Sale – Day 5

Better late than never right? Oh, you just want the deals? Okay…

These will be pretty brief write ups today.

Dishonored – $39.99 USD 50% Off
I’m really torn on this one. I really want to check it out but I just can’t bring myself to pay this much for it. If it was even just $10 cheaper I would be all over it. But at $40, I just can’t. I honestly think you’ll probably find this cheaper in the Christmas sales, on both Steam and in stores. So yeah, can’t recommend this one.

Civilization V – $17.49 USD 75% Off
This is a tough one. It’s an awesome game and that’s a pretty good price, but like Dishonored we are getting absolutely reamed by regional pricing. This game is $40 more expensive  than our US counterparts normally, and here we’re paying an extra $10 even with the massive discount. Having said that, it’s a solid game that you will lose hours of your life to.

Orcs Must Die! 2 – $3.74 USD 75% Off
A must buy. Exceptionally fun game, especially in co-op. Tower defense at it’s best. All the DLC is also on sale and you can buy the “Complete Pack” for $6.24 USD, so I recommend picking up this one.

Batman Arkham City GOTY Edition – $7.49 USD 75% Off
The PC version of this game isn’t the best. It’s still plagued by DirectX 11 issues. Having said that, it’s an awesome game for an awesome price. If you don’t already own it, buy it. Now. Arkham Asylum GOTY is also 75% off ($4.99 USD) so get that too if you don’t already own it.

Torchlight II – $9.99 USD 50% Off
I haven’t played Torchlight II but I had an absolute blast with the first game. A Diablo-esque game where you kill things and get loot. Rinse and repeat.

Sonic Generations – $12.48 USD 75% Off
I actually had a lot of fun with this game. It takes what used to be good about Sonic and makes it damn enjoyable again. Sure the third-person parts are a little awkward, but it gets back to the root of why Sonic was awesome. Gotta go fast!

Mixed bag today. As mentioned, regional pricing screws us over a little but still some good bargains.

Borderlands 2 – $34.99 USD 50% Off – CONSIDER
Chivalry: Medieval Warfare – $12.49 USD 50% Off – CONSIDER
F1 2012 – $24.99 USD 50% Off – CONSIDER
Deus Ex: Human Revolution – $6.24 USD 75% Off – BUY
Total War: Shogun 2 – $13.59 USD 66% Off – BUY
Mark of the Ninja – $7.49 USD 50% Off – BUY

BUY = You need this game in your life
CONSIDER = Pricing may not be the best or the game may not be for everyone. Do your research.
AVOID = Don’t bother. It’s either a bad game or the price is too high. Or both.

Until tomorrow fronds!
