My Steam Summer Sale Gaming Wishlist

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!

—————————————————————

Alpha Protocolalpha protocol steam

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.

 

FTL: Faster Than Lightftl steam

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.

 

Game of Thrones – A Telltale Games Seriesgame of thrones steam

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.

 

NEO Scavengerneo scavenger steam

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.

 

Pillars of Eternity pillars of eternity steam

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!

 

Remember Meremember me steam

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.

 

Shadowrun: Dragonfall – Directors Cutshadowrun dragonfall steam

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.

 

Sunless Seasunless sea steam

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.

 

The Banner Sagathe banner saga steam

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.

 

Valiant Hearts: The Great Warvaliant hearts steam

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? 🙂

  1. I’m debating on whether or not to pick up the Civilization Beyond Earth / Starships bundle, but I think I’m going to talk myself out of it for now. FTL is definitely a great game. If you have the chance, I actually think it plays better on a tablet (love it on iPad), but it’s great fun on PC as well. I’ve never made it to the end though :-

    • Thanks for your comment! I’ve played a lot of Civ 5 and was considering Beyond Earth too but the reviews have been a bit off putting… FTL does look very touchscreen friendly actually!

  2. I really don’t know what I want to come on sale. In previous years I’ve just basically scrolled through to see what was available. Although I wouldn’t mind picking up a copy of Ori And The Blind Forest. I’ve heard good things about that and the trailer was beautiful. If it’s still on sale come Monday (pay day), I’ll probably get that.

      • Yeah, I’m hoping even if the price does go back up, they’ll discount it again before the sale ends. Also, the remastered version of Grim Fandango. I never had a chance to play it when it was first released, so I’m really keen to play that one too.
