Steam Games I'm Dying to Play

two brothers

TWO BROTHERS

I want this game a lot, but I’ve resolved not to buy any until next month when I’ve finished some I am already playing and I have more time and cash.  This is kind of like a Gameboy inspired game with some weird concepts going on, and apparently GREAT music.

 

dayz

DAYZ

I love this game.  I love it more than fat kids like me love cake and Cheetos.  But my computer could barely handle the mod, and I’m worried this will be too much for it too.  But goddamn if I don’t want it.  I think next month I’m going to pull the trigger once it’s been given a little more time to cook and I have more time to play.  But man, I gave DayZ my 2012 game of the year, even though it was just a mod.  It’s just too good.  It’s not for everyone, but you’re seeing more and more games stealing its ideas and refining them in interesting ways. 

 

 wasteland 2

WASTELAND 2

This game is $60, the most expensive game on this list, and I never spend that much money on a Steam game (almost never).  But I really want to play this and support the crew who made it because it is just too awesome.  It’s still just the Beta, but I heard it’s got dozens of hours of gameplay already and is sweet.

This little point-and-click caught my attention after Lily Looking Through.  It seems chill. 

 

starbound

STARBOUND

I didn't get into Terraria, never played it, but this game looks freaking amazing. 

 

strike vector

STRIKE VECTOR

This indie aerial combat game looks amazing.  Kind of like some Rogue Squadron levels but better.  Here's hoping it's cool. 

 

Banner Saga

BANNER SAGA

How can you say no to this????

I 100% agree with Wasteland 2, Banner Saga and Two Brothers.  I just need to figure out how to work Stoic's forums so that I can get my kickstarter copy of The Banner Saga.

oh did u contribute to the kickstarter?  you should definitely do that to get your copy.  I love Tactics games, and this one looks really neat.

I backed it on kickstarter because the artwork is amazing.  That is the only reason I did and I kow that is a really lousy reason.

I am having trouble logging into my Steam account. Since it is available on Linux now it has stopped working for me.

Matt Snee Staff Writer

are u using it on a PC or on a linux machine?  I don't know much about that stuff.  How long has this been going on?  I can't live without my Steam.

They released it for my Linux box and for some reason I can not connect to the steam servers. All Steam tells me to do is uninstall and reinstall. that crap never works. I think there is a handshake conflict.

Saw the trailer for Two Brothers on YouTube.  Looks awesome!  I might have to get that one.

yeah it looks really weird....

Well, Two Brothers certainly looks interesting, at least from the trailer I saw.

Matt Snee Staff Writer

01/13/2014 at 12:41 PM

yeah I'm definitely going to check it out and will report back.

You got good taste, mang.  

DayZ just looks like something right up my alley, but I'm waiting until some bugfixes. ARMA multiplayer was some of the best I've played in my life.

Two Brothers looks like its the first retro game that truly nails the aesthetic of old 2D games, albeit slightly more advanced than what was on the Gameboy. Others have kind of this alternate universe 8-bit/16-bit look to them, not really convincing, but they nailed it here.

And I can't wait for the re-emergence of pen-and-paper inspired CRPG gameplay that is headed our way with Wasteland 2 and other KS projects.

yeah I love that CRPG's are having this comeback that isn't really held back by console design.  IT's really cool. 

DayZ is a lot of fun.  I definitely recommend it.

I think with Two Brothers there are parts and stuff that are in color for emphasis, but I'm not really sure.

I got into the Strike Vector beta. I don't know if it's still available but you can just email the guys and they'll send you a steam key. http://www.strikevector.net/ The email is on this site. It looks really cool, but I don't think that my computer will be able to handle it Frown.

Yeah me neither.  But i will check that out.  Thanks for the info

I just signed up for Steam and have been looking through games all night. What an amazing site! I can't wait to dig in. Those titles you mentioned look ab fab too.

Matt Snee Staff Writer

01/14/2014 at 09:26 AM

yeah Steam is amazing.  PC gaming is really vibrant with smaller weirder titles.

Two Brothers sounds cool. I recently played Anodyne off Steam. It was basicly a Link's Awakening clone so I enjoyed it quite a bit. I might get Starbound eventually. I still need to finish (or at least play lol) Terraria though.

Matt Snee Staff Writer

01/14/2014 at 09:27 AM

yeah Two Brothers seems like something you would enjoy.  I have heard of Anodyne.  HAve you played "Ittle Dew", it's a Zelda clone too.

Well, the game I was looking forward and it's now released of Steam is one called Nidhogg. Look it up.

i've heard of that but I don't know what it's about.  Will look it up.

Two Brothers peaked my interest, and DayZ has had my attention since hearing about the Mod. Once they refine some things it will only get better, and the support for the Alpha has been tremendous.

It's absolutely awesome to see Steam thriving as much as it is and to see the amount of quality indie and community created gaming experiences/mods that are out there.

Two Brothers is part of the Indie Gala bundle for January.
