It’s that time of the year again! The Steam Summer Sale is expected to begin tomorrow (June 11th) and I thought I’d list the top games on my wishlist that I hope to pick up.
I did something similar for the winter sale, which you can check out here, and surprising enough I did stick to it quite well. My highlight and favourite purchase was Telltale’s Walking Dead and Wolf Among Us series which are certainly worthy of their positive reviews.
I’d love to hear what’s on your wishlist or if you have any recommendations or thoughts on the games below!
It wasn’t until recently that I knew about this. Seeing this game alongside Fallout New Vegas on Obsidian’s wiki page made me look it up and it actually sounds really interesting. If Mass Effect was a Spy movie.
This on the other hand is a game I’ve known about for a while and I think it’s about time I actually bought it! It sounds very difficult but its setting and replay value make it one to definitely try out.
I’m a huge Game of Thrones fan, and this sounds a great match for me having enjoyed Telltale’s previous games and it providing more material to enjoy in the Game of Thrones universe.
This is a turn-based strategy game with the aim to survive in its post-apocalyptic setting. I was a bit put off by the interface but the reviews have convinced me to give it a try. There is also a demo to check out first.
I don’t expect this game to get much of a discount but I’ll probably buy it anyway. I love lore heavy, well-written games, and this sounds perfect. Sure it’ll take a few hours to complete but it’s a long summer!
This looks gorgeous but apparently wasn’t as successful as hoped. It’s often described as underrated, with the story and graphics especially praised. The main criticism is the combat but using a controller is said to help.
Another turn-based strategy game, but in a cyberpunk setting. I haven’t played any of the Shadowrun games so I’m unsure where to start exactly, but I’ll be sure to purchase this one at least, if the price comes down.
This game looks so intriguing and full of surprises that it’s been so hard to hold off buying this on release. I’ve waited patiently until the sale where hopefully it’ll receive a discount to make my wait worthwhile.
A gem from 2014 that everyone has been talking about. I’ve heard so many good things about this tactical RPG. The art style looks beautiful and the story and soundtrack have also been highly praised.
Finally Valiant Hearts. Any game with a story so engaging and emotional that it will make you cry has got to be checked out of course. To the Moon and the Walking Dead almost managed it with me so I’ll see how it goes!
What are you hoping to buy? 🙂
