Steam Summer Sale: The Hangover

Here we have a game where you can play as the so-called heroic warrior or the powerful sorceress while you go on some kind of magical quest game for 1 to 4 players, and of course you will need strength, courage and some good dice rolls to survive the dangers you face and beat your opponents to the “centre” of the board. That’s all mostly a direct quote and ah who am I kidding after the Steam Summer Sale I don’t think I have it in me to sit down and play a god damn digital board game. “Imagine Monopoly with Dragons!” is what it says, only instead of choosing a silly top hat for a player character you choose some big breasted bimbo and instead of trying to screw over Grandma with that hotel on Park Place you’re trying to become the pied piper or some crap, I don’t know. Bad timing for Talisman.

Anyways, let’s take this moment to reflect on the money we have wasted invested so that we might then waste invest our time into hopefully as many games as possible. Games that were purchased at a steep discount. Go back and look at your backlog, and see how far it has grown. The time has now come to decide which games to play first. Now that you know which games you should buy and which games you should have bought, you must be wondering which games to play in your backlog? Yes, the bloated, pre-hibernation bear belly that is your Steam games list must be dealt with. There’s a few ways to go about it.

You could close your eyes and click one but that would be silly. The key is to organize. Sort the games by genre, and then we get into the nitty gritty. Are you the type of person that tries out multiple games at the same time for just a few minutes and then you select the one you liked the best? Or do you play multiple games at the same time all the way through to their conclusion? Perhaps you are more traditional, and you refuse to start another game until you have finished the one you are on.

I hope that alchemist is mixin up a fine margarita

If you bought a huge crop of games, I recommend interspersing the casual, hop-in-and-play type games with the serious single player campaigns. That way you won’t get your stories confused, and gameplay is different so odds are you won’t confuse controls too much. So you can jump in and out of roguelikes while you stalk the streets of Dunwall at the same time.

But it doesn’t really matter what you do. Decide what is best for yourself. The seeds of your labor have been sown, oh farmer of digital wares, and now it is time to reap the crop. Get to it. Oh and you probably don’t need to buy this game. Verdict: Skip it.
