I just thought I'd let you know that some summer sales are already underway! Humble Bundle, GOG, and Origin are all having sales right now! Steam's summer sale begins on the 22nd, according to a source I found via Google.

Is there anything you're planning to pick up? Let me know in the comments! I got Far Cry Primal Digital Deluxe Edition for 60% off! Now I'm waiting for the Steam sale to get Jurassic World Evolution and maybe some other games.

Video game sales are a great way to get games. That said, I don't have anything i'm looking to buy this sales cycle. I have a few things i'm playing now that are keeping me busy and the backlog is pretty strong due to past sales smile

LOL Yeah I figured you probably didn't want anything, you've talked about that backlog before. I actually don't have that many games I want, in fact I'm getting somewhat desperate for a new great game. Luckily, more Ark (another DLC) is coming soon, I'm sure of it!

The Sims 4 is like $10, too. While it's tempting there are SO many expansion packs for it.

I have picked up a few xbox one games, a ps4 game collection and a few games from Limited Run Games (they will arrive in a few months). I should avoid the sales like the plague.

But the plague is so pretty...

LOL I've been trying so damn hard to resist temptation to buy games I want until the Steam sale. I know it's still about a week away, yet I want new-to-me games now. The wait will hopefully be worth it.

M backlog is ridiculous but I keep building it. Even still, I’m not really hyped about getting anything but I’ll be watching for things I can’t resist.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Member wrote on 06/15/2018 at 09:25pm

I don't know which is bigger, my comic backlog or my game backlog.

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/16/2018 at 04:40am

What comics are you into? It’s been a while since I read them seriously. These days I mostly just kinda half keep up with the Star Wars comics.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Member wrote on 06/16/2018 at 06:36pm

Star Wars comics most definitely. A lot of different Marvel comics, Batman, Wildstorm, Saga, Paper Girls, Ghostbusters... When the Star Wars comics switched to back to Marvel, it was my gateway drug back into comics.

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/16/2018 at 08:40pm

The Vader series (both of them really) are so good. Probably my favorites. I like most all of them though. The ones that came out around The Force Awakens were top notch.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Member wrote on 06/16/2018 at 11:46pm

I like them all too. Doctor Aphra, BeeTee and Triple-Zero are the best.

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/17/2018 at 02:35am

Yeah, last I read Triple-Zero had her basically as a slave because he'd found some logic that let him break free of her being his master. I need to catch up on those. She's the only one with a comic who wasn't in any movies or shows isn't she? It's well deserved.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Member wrote on 06/17/2018 at 06:34pm

Yup. Her first appearance was in the first Vader series.

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/18/2018 at 03:36am

Ah sorry, I was asking if there were any other comic series other than hers that starred someone other than visual media characters. I'm pretty sure she's the only one, unless I've missed a new series. I'm not counting Tales from Wild Space, since the "leads" are really just storytellers for other adventures.

I loved her in the Vader comics, and that quality has kept up in her own series. She and her murder droids even have action figures now. I hope she shows up in some of the visual media, though I'm not sure where it would work. Favreau's show maybe? If she started working for the rebels at some point, and then stayed on with the New Republic, she could be quite the ally.

Speaking of Star Wars, I don’t care about the Battlefront 2 multiplayer but Origin is also having a summer sale right now, and BF2 is $17. That was th sweet spot I was waiting for to nab it and play the single player campaign.

Wooooooow this game is beautiful. Everything looks like it should and it’s better optimized than your average game. It just works, it works really well, and it looks damn good doing it. The mechanics for shooting are really well done. The mechanics for flying still make me long for the flying missions to be over but they’re much improved over the first one.

Mostly I’m really enjoying seeing the canon perspective of someone in the Empire who sees the second Death Star blow up and has to deal with that. She knows that Sheevy was a moron and his hubris destroyed them but still loves her Empire and wants it to succeed.

So far I’m really digging the story and most of the gameplay. If you’re like me and you’ve been wanting some single player Star Wars for what seems like forever (it’s been a while), now might be a good time to snag this one.

Beware. It’s a 70gb download.

And now Steam's Summer Sale is on!

jdodson   Admin wrote on 06/22/2018 at 04:35am

Oh did that just drop?

*opens steam*

The Intergalactic Summer Sale huh? Cool.

*reads more*

Oh wow you can play a Saliens game where you click to defend your base for a chance to win games. That's really neat. It's a fun Missile Command like clicker. I also earned two cards for playing one game. Too bad I can't sell them, or i'd be pennies richer! smile

GregoPeck   Member   Post Author wrote on 06/22/2018 at 04:57am

Oh wow, I didn't know all that! Sadly, what's at the top of my list isn't on sale and I'm not sure if I'll get anything else.

GregoPeck   Member   Post Author wrote on 06/22/2018 at 05:02am

Hm, mine doesn't seem to want to load, it's frozen at "loading..."

GregoPeck   Member   Post Author wrote on 06/22/2018 at 05:04am

Nevermind, it works fine in my browser, just now within the Steam client.

Will_Ball   Game Mod   Member wrote on 06/22/2018 at 10:42pm

Ok, I broke down and bought a steam link and rage. I think I am out < $15 total.

Travis   Admin wrote on 06/23/2018 at 12:11am

I’ll be interested to hear what you think of Rage.

jdodson   Admin wrote on 06/23/2018 at 04:49am

RAGE! Enjoy the shooting, stay for the wingstick!
