Today's the day! My wishlist is longer than it's ever been and I haven't had a new game to really get into for a while, I can't really spend much until pay day though. I think I'll probably get Shadow Warrior 2 regardless because that's been quite well discounted in the past few sales, apart from that I wouldn't mind some VR games.

Still waiting for deals on the few games I really want.


Anyone tried Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 yet? It's currently at 50% off.
Only tried the beta and seemed quite good, but have got mixed feedback on the full game.

So is this why I got even more off the Premium Pack of RaceRoom DLC than I expected? It was saying something around £85 on the website but when I went to buy it, it went down to £70...but that appeared to be part of a separate RaceRoom offer, whereby I bought a certain number of VP and it gave me more money off that. But is the whole thing part of the Steam sale? Either way, I've thrown a lot at it, but I'd say it's just about worth it. For the moment.

In addition to @SVX's list of good and somewhat serious racing games from the news post, I thought it might be worth highlighting some other either car-based not-racing games or non-car racing games that aren't terrible include (UK prices only because I'm lazy):
  • Distance: 50% off (£7.49)
  • Absolute Drift: 60% off (£3.59)
  • BallisticNG: 0% off (£0.00)
  • Euro Truck Simulator 2: 75% off (£3.74)
  • American Truck Simulator: 50% (£7.49)
  • Formula Fusion: 25% off (£11.24)
  • Grip: 25% off (£8.99)
  • Car Mechanic Simulator 2015: 85% off (£2.24)
  • Death Rally: 80% (£1.39)
  • Spintires: 75% off, (£4.99)
  • Toybox Turbos: 75% off (£2.99)
  • Trackmania 2 Pack (Canyon, Stadium and Valley): 50% off (£17.49)
  • Escape: Close Call: 0% off (£4.99)
  • Carmageddon: Max Damage: 50% off (£7.49)
  • Brick Rigs: 20% off (£8.79)
  • Redout: Enhanced Edition: 60% off (£10.79)
  • City Car Driving: 20% off (£16.40)
  • Trackmania Turbo: 50% off (£17.49)
  • Wreckfest (aka Next Car Game): 50% off (£12.49)
Also some of my personal absolute favourite, less well-known games that I strongly recommend:
  • Besiege
  • Brigador
  • The Dig
  • Enter the Gungeon
  • FTL: Faster Than Light
  • Full Throttle
  • Human Resource Machine
  • Inside
  • Insurgency
  • Luftrausers
  • My Summer Car
  • Nuclear Throne
  • Receiver
  • Risk of Rain
  • Running With Rifles
  • Sky Rogue
  • Super Hexagon
  • Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3

Personally I have yet to pick anything up, but I think I'll get Shadow Warrior 2, the Brigador soundtrack DLC, a few copies of Golf For Workgroups, Day of Infamy and rFactor 2 (as there's no subscription thing any more, I just got my new desk which will let me use my wheel again, it's got VR support either now or soon and all my old sim racing friends are into it). Next week!

So far I've only picked up Ride 2, I rather liked the first one but didn't want to pay full price for the follow up.

I'm thinking about X-Plane 11 and Sailway too, but I'm not sure they're discounted enough.

Shadow of Mordor is only 5 euros...But I haven't finished The Witcher 3 and Fallout 4, and I've had those games for ages :lol:

I've only bought Shadow of Mordor so far. I was planning on buying Driver: San Francisco, but I don't know if it's worth the price.

D:SF is an okay game. Honestly the car shifting is a very strange gameplay mechanic. Just seemed off with the past Driver games.

How are the physics? Just looking for an open world game with decent driving physics that doesn't cost too much.

You'd like Driver: SF then. It's not too arcadey..at least in my opinion it isn't.


I'm sitting here and contemplating gettig FFXIV Complete Edition and Nier Automata.

Nier Automata is fantastic. Get it

Though they still haven't patched the game.. You have to run a special mod called FAR mod to fix the most annoying problems in the game. And AMD cards are getting pretty shoddy performance

Is Driver San Francisco even still available? I went specifically looking for it during this sale and couldn't find it.

So I've made some purchases, I don't think I'll buy anything else:

- rFactor 2
- Watch Dogs 2
- Scanner Sombre
- Obduction
- Mountain
- Day of Infamy
- Brigador Deluxe DLC

I did also buy The Signal From Tolva, but I didn't think very much of it so I returned it. I said I'd get Shadow Warrior 2 but thought better of it given that I didn't really get on with the first one, I heard the sequel was more like Borderlands but also kind of short, so I might wait for a better sale.

I've still not bought anything. Tempted by the GT DLC for Motorsport Manager.

Thinking of the Civ 6 and XCOM 2 double pack.

Anyone bought much?

I've bought Car Mechanic Simulator 2015 which I was always curious about so decided to try it as it's just over £2, have enjoyed it so far and can see myself getting a decent amount of hours in to it.

Other than that I've bought both of the Metro games as I thought the new Metro game looked good at E3 and wanted to get a feel for the series.

It's finished! I picked up Wasteland 2 at the last minute, the rest of my wishlist wasn't really that enticing so even though I made a mental note to have another look before the end, I couldn't actually get excited about any of it so I just... Well, didn't buy anything. Except Wasteland 2.
