Steam sale for some reason
Finally going to pick up Binding of Isaac at -50% (had the original, never got Rebirth) and Rocket League. Somewhat surprising even to myself that I don't have those already. Also pondering the Witcher 3 at -60%, people keep recommending it, but I suspect I'll get bored and quit in no time.
The only advice I have to toss out is that Crypt of the Necrodancer is neat at -80% (I am just terrible at it).
With poor internet Witcher 3 is an easy choice. There is a lot to learn, but the game does a really good job of teaching you the different mechanics gradually. However you need to dedicate a couple of hours the first time you play.
With expansions (which I highly recommend) the game takes around 100 hours to complete. I actually got bored with it a couple of times and stopped playing for a couple of months, but then when I got back to it I enjoyed it just as much as before.
Man, Gog meanwhile still does the flash sale thing, and despite it likely not coming out cheaper overall than just hunting for the best ones on Steam wherever they show up, it remains a lot more fun to check in now and then and see what is on sale at the moment. No idea why Steam changed to the drab setup they use now.
Witcher 3 under consideration, but I need to figure out whether I can find an opportunity to download 30 gigs before it makes much sense with poor internet.
I'm still open to some new single player games, I have played quite a few in the past year and it's been great. Most recently The Surge and Batman Arkham Knight.
I always check GOG out, one day they will get Warlords 3 Dark Lords Rising and Alien vs Predator 2 and my games collection will be complete!
Wastelands 2 looks like a game I would enjoy.
Ended up picking up Yooka-Laylee, Thimbleweed Park and Shadowrun: Hong Kong on GOG. All relatively new games and yet all bought out of nostalgia. Only played Thimbleweed Park yet, but that at least hit the spot!
Ah, no need for further sales, the game to end all games is here: http://store.steampowered.com/app/546050/Puyo_PuyoTetris/
Yes, this is my level of gaming these days. Actually always have been, man I've done many hours in both Tetris and Puyo Puyo.
Finished Thimbleweed Park, anyone nostalgic for old LucasArt games should certainly pick it up. The one complaint I have about it would be a spoiler, so I'll leave it a largely untarnished recommendation.
