There's literally nothing I want. I may just buy KoAR again on Steam just so I don't have to go through Origin though, it's only £4. £8 gets you it and all DLC. Fucking love that game.

Discounts seem to be a bit bigger than your usual sale. A lot of little indie games can be had for just a couple of quid each. Very tempted to snag them now even though I know they likely won't get played for another year.

I find that the cheaper it is the less likely I am to ever play it. My library is already drowning in dead weight unplayed games.

I bought Kingdoms of Amalur so I never have to load it up in shitfest Origin ever again and a copy of L4D for my son. Mafia III's Season Pass too.

So in total I bought and refunded Steamworld Heist, bought Shadowrun: Hong Kong and Book of Demons. I stared at a lot of other games for the whole of the sale, but never really felt like picking any of them up.

Why the refund for Heist, Dj? Was looking at that myself, waiting for a further price drop really, but is it no good?

It just didn't click. It seems like a fun little game, but after a few missions I was already a bit bored of it.

Ok, thanks. Was already thinking I'd wait until it hits the £3-4 kind of mark, did the same with Steamworld Dig, picking that up in this sale, so at that sort of price I don't mind only getting an hour or two's diversion from it.

Ryse is super-cheap for the next couple of days (£3.75). I know that it was a bit disappointing to many when it came out, but is it worth a quick blast for that kind of outlay?

Depends how much you like incredibly linear cinematic experiences with a minimal amount of mediocre gameplay. It's more movie than game, probably worth 3 quid just as a one off experience. It is rather pretty.

Oh, thought it was more of an actiony hack and slash type affair. Might not bother, then.

Oh it is, but it's incredibly basic. Think a less mechnically developed Arkham game but simply moving from A to B to fight large arenas of enemies.

If you just want something to switch your brain off and play in a short time frame you will probably get your moneys worth. It takes about 4-5 hours to complete and probably a little less than half of it is cutscenes.

Think I'll leave it, mindless hack and slash sounds like the sort of diversion I wouldn't mind sinking a few hours into, but the endless repetition and basic combat is a bit off-putting, and I hate sitting through endless cutscenes.

Hey guess what, I just got Ryse in this month's Humble Bundle.
