Re: The Big Steam Bargains Thread

I bought a fair bit, nothing very expensive, mainly as I had a yin to play a very particular kind of space game - something where you had a crew, fly out to derelicts and salvage them while engaging in tactical combat, sort of thing - which turns out apparently doesn't exist. So I bought a few space games that sounded vaguely interesting in the hope they might scratch that itch.

They didn't - the two that came closest were StarCrawlers, a sci-fi Dungeon Master-esque crawler thing, and Star Traders Frontiers, which is like a 2D top-down Elite kinda, which was fun for a while but after saving and buying the best ship I abruptly felt like I'd seen and had enough. At 20+ hours played though I feel like I got my money's worth.

Others were Heat Signature (which I may play more of), Galaxy Squad (which sounds great but is sadly utter pants), while I also bought Just Cause 3 (fun), and Legend of Grimrock 2 (also fun).

Haven't totted it up, but probably something like £20-25 for the lot.

I had Galaxy Squad on my list for a while but took it off in the end.







One of those three might be similar to what you are after.

I also just found this, which someone mentioned in their review of one of those games above, looks interesting (Early Access though):

It was four quid something, honest. Sales over unfortunately.

That's the disadvantage of the forum embedding thing. It makes you look mental when the price reverts back. I think I'll start sticking the price at the time underneath just for future reference.

Although £50 for a 2 year old game?! They're clearly on the glue. :shock:

It was, honest guvnor. Although I wouldn't worry too much if you missed it. Sure it's no colonial marines but it's far from a classic.

In fact I may have a boxed copy still sealed somewhere if you want it?

It's ok, I bought it when it first came out and unlikely to want to replay it, just joshing you :)

AvP was alright actually. Not sure how well the later story mode levels worked out but the multiplayer was quite a lot of fun, though it's totally devoid of players now I imagine.

It kind of develved into trying to run behind homeone while mashing the use key. Wasn't awful but not amazing.
I used to be eVoL but I got better.
I like everything now.
