The Steam Sale: Bad Influences

I usually have a nice list of possible games to purchase in the Steam sales but not this time. I searched the Mystery, Action/Adventure and RPG categories as I do, but nothing appealed enough to purchase. Going into the last day before the sale ended, my only purchase was Mass Effect Legendary Edition.

Bad Influences=my gaming son. I thought you were interested in Horizon Zero Dawn? You’d like that. Added to pile, check.

You should try Final Fantasy Online! It’s a classic fantasy. There are dragons, quests, really good dungeons and a dungeon finder! Also…fishing! Housing! All the expansions for one low price! A Main Story that levels you up fast. This kid can make things sound so good. Happiness making! Added to pile, check.

One small game that did keep popping up while I was looking around was Little Nightmares II. I bought Little Nightmares 1 for a much smaller price to see if I liked the game play. Added to pile, check.

Of these, I’ve only looked briefly at Final Fantasy, very briefly. It was super hard to create a character, as most servers, including the one my son was on were not accepting new characters.

I will give that it’s own post.

Now Where Did I Put My Steam Sale Wish List?

I haven’t played or even tried out all the games I purchased during the Steam Winter Sale.  I had a really good list of things to look for next time.  Next time is here!  I’m ready to acquire some new items for my Game Library.

Casually looking this morning, I’m thinking Outer Wilds looks good as a new consideration.  There’s also a whole Mystery Category with 98 pages of games.  I’m sure I’ll find things there.   I’m in the mood also for Action /Adventure and Science Fiction.

There we go…from December’s list:

Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy

Bioshock 2 Remastered

Day of the Tentacle Remastered



I shall report back from the depths of Sale Frenzy.

Now Downloading…Pillars of Eternity

Although it’s hard to get my head out of the Galaxy, I grabbed Pillars of Eternity from the Steam sale this morning .   I didn’t see anything else interesting there or on the GOG sale, thank heavens, since I was in the mood to BUY.

I like the snippets on my blog roll so you can see what the post is about and you get a feel for these sort of shifts in mood that seem to go through the blogosphere.

Not long ago, everyone was burned out and didn’t feel like playing. Now there is excitement for new things to come and for old things revisited.

As always, it is a good time to be a gamer.
