We have been discussing a lot of games regarding new releases and wishlists, and the discussions are quite fantastic. My wishlist needs to buy some new pants, because the old ones won’t fit. It’s gone from healthy and manageable to being obese. It waddles left and right walking down the hallway. The joints ache a bit, mildly arthritic due to the overeating lately.
Let’s switch gears at this time to focus on games that have been out there, but are currently on sale somewhere, whether it be Steam, Chrono, Fanatical, Humble, IndieGala, Gamers Gate, GOG, or wherever else they be available for a reasonably reduced price, since that always gets people’s attentions much easier.
So this is like combining your favorite games and what’s on sale at the moment. Let’s give it a try. By the way, this idea is courtesy of our generous dino friend, @yoshirules.
The idea is that if you ever see a game that you have already played, that you would heavily recommend, that there’s conveniently, a massive sale giving unbelievable discounts, and that the rest of the Chronies/Chronizens/ChronoKnights/Chrono-Goers/Chrono-Lurkers/etc would love to know about!
Please feel free to discuss at length, and if you love the game so much and bothered to write a review on Steam or elsewhere, please share with us too!
I will start:
Of my favorite games, currently on sale at GOG is Spelunky. @onLooSe was the one who introduced me to this game, and it sure is a toughie! If you are into a game that constantly tests your skill, your quick reactions, your judgement, this might be the game for you. You get better at the game over time through countless repetitions (actually the game keeps track of your deaths and wins for you). Even the best players need to be constantly on their toes looking for dangers, and trying to make the best judgement call every second of the game. (This last statement is my thought, I will gladly bow down to anyone who can lackadaisically play Spelunky and do well.) I have only managed to progress the story/adventure a little over 50% on my best run so far in about 32 hours of playing. I started to dream about the randomly generated levels, and planning out this imaginary strategy in my sleep. Too bad it doesn’t carry in reality, since my imaginary fingers can move a lot faster and my reaction speed in my dreams is faster than reality. Keep in mind that while this is such a wonderful game, it is not for everyone, but currently at 85% discount on GOG, you can buy the game for $2.24 USD (or whatever the cost is to you in your region, should be 85% discount still). It’s the kind of price that most of us could stomach to try out a game. I do think it would be better if there’s a concurrent Steam sale, since there’s the Steam leaderboards, and you can see how you rank among your friends. I do think a lot of people give up on this game due to its difficulty, but I am really glad I managed to get my hands on this game and have been enjoying my time with it. The critical thinking requirements is what keeps me going in this game.
Feel free to further discuss, share, or do as you wish.
