Latest Gaming Buys

Happy new year people! It's been a few weeks since the last time I did a blog, so much like daftman does on his updates, I decided to show everything I bought ever since this blog and perhaps make this something montly, unless I simply do updates on everything that include other non-gaming related stuff.

Since that date, the Steam Holiday Sale of 2016 came and went and I did indeed get stuff, but I was calmed about it as I want to clear much of my backlog before hoarding, which is why some of the more significant boughts in my opinion were DLC or upgrades of games I already had. I also got something outside of PC gaming and other stuff coming in the way my dad and I ordered from Amazon as his christmas gifts. In any case, the games and updated I got during that span were:

Upgrades and DLC on Steam:

  • Shadowrun Returns Upgrade to the Deluxe edition
  • Sid Meier's Civilization V: Complete (aka, all the DLC minus the base game)
  • The three character DLC from Vanguard Princess
  • Dungeon of the Endless - Pixel Edition to Crystal Edition Upgrade

New games got on the 25th of December and 3rd of January over Steam:

  • Dustforce (bundled with the soundtrack)
  • Legend of Grimrock
  • Armored Hunter Gunhound Ex
  • AudioSurf
  • To The Moon (bundles with the soundtrack, and also got as an aside its apparent sequel comic).
  • Akane the Kunoichi

And finally:

-Super Smash Bros. for Wii U: Yup, just like I mentioned in that blog linked, I bought with my own money the latest Smash game on a retail storey. I still haven't given in and start playing, but I already have a good impression of the game after playing a bit before and if Brawl has taught me anything, I will get addicted

I also should mention a missfortune I had during the sale: I was very involved with the latest badge making of the Steam Holiday Sale (they actually made it doable this time) and after making the main three level badge, I was selling cards just to complete other sets of badges and then have the money just to get cards for badges I wanted.... and then I accidentally spent part of the card's money on the games bought in January. Should have been careful to ignore the option to buy with that on the checkout, but because I already did that on the 25th, I thought that was set as default. God fucking damn it!

Oh and thankfully, Steam's blunder that happened on the 25th didn't seem to affect me. I also decided to put Steam Guard on my phone, which did kinda annoy me in holding trade request for 7 days, but thankfully it went away before the sale ended.

As far as stuff i've been playing, I decided to leave that one for another blog seeing as I think i've spoken enough here. in any case, how much did you buy and/or received as gifts for the holiday?

I just bought the horizons expansion to Elite. it was fifteen bucks off on steam so I said to hell with it. I cleaned off my computer's memory to get back into pc gaming today.  it's time.  

nice to hear from you, Alex!

Ehh, I wasn't away, just being like the uncle that visits once a while :P

The modern Elite I hope I can play when I build my first serious rig.

I didn't buy anything for myself over Christmas, but I did get a PS Vita as a present as well as Tales of Zestiria.


01/12/2016 at 10:19 PM

So would like to buy a Vita, but i'm also seriously considering a New 3DS.

New 3DS is probably the better buy.

Glad to hear from you again! Legend of Grimrock is one of my all time favourite games, so enjoy!


01/12/2016 at 10:20 PM

Not really a come back, but thanks. I can thank you for making me interested in Legend of Grimrock in the first place.

I got two books, Ernest Cline's Armada (he did Ready Player One) and Star Wars Aftermath (this tells the first in a trilogy of stories that link Return of the Jedi with Force Awakens).Then I bought myself a bunch of Skylanders figures on the buy-two-get-three-free sale Gamestop was doing. 


01/12/2016 at 10:22 PM

I've read a sample of Ready Player One on my kindle. Dig what i've read and I hope to get it maybe after I decide to finish some of the ones I have on the device.

I bought 2 games for the holidays...Watch Dogs and LittleBigPlanet 3. I havent played then yet


01/12/2016 at 10:25 PM

Man, I had so much hype for Watch Dogs, which got killed after all the launch controversy and Ubisoft fucking things up. That said, perhaps if Uplay isn't necesary on the Wii U, I could get that copy for a cheap price.

I should probably look into that Steam thing to see if I was affected, but I doubt it. 

Wii U would be a purchase for me soon if not for the nagging idea NX might be unveiled soon.


01/12/2016 at 10:26 PM

As a fan of the Wii U, I actually recommend perhaps waiting to see if the NX gets backwards compatibility, unless you're urgent to get one.

yeah, i am waiting until at least e3. honestly, if nx has zelda, i'll not be buying a wii u.
