Missing the Steam sale, not buying beta, leading in CoC

Quick note about missing the Steam sale due to vacation: Unless Steam wasn’t sending out those “your wishlist game is on sale” notifications, I don’t think I would have picked up much, and I think the winter sale will be more of a thing for me.

I basically echo TAGN thoughts on the sale overall; a few years back it was a big deal, while now we all expect it and it’s really not a surprise or as big an event.

Small MMO note: The rise of paying for beta access also means titles I’m 50/50 on (like Archeage) stay on the waiting list longer (free beta). I’m sure for the company behind a game it’s better to get money up-front sooner than to get ‘influencers’ (if blog writters can still be considered that) to write/hype there game, especially if the game in question isn’t amazing (less hype, more “pass on this” posts).

Final item: I’m now the leader of the Clash of Clans… clan “Supreme Cream!”. If you are at all interested in the game (and you should be, its pretty fantastic) feel free to apply (just mention this blog so I know your not some random). Since the game is actually a rather deep strategy title, I’m more than happy to answer any questions you might have either through Steam or in-game. Also don’t forget about my tips post.

    Blackguards was the only thing I picked up over $5, I haven’t installed it yet.

    Two things on the Steam Sale. One is that the gimmick of flash/daily sales has gotten stale. Put something on sale or don’t, but quit jerking me around. Two is that I have too many unplayed or underplayed games to justify buying a bunch of new ones. I’d be surprised if I were exceptional in that regard.
