I picked up all of the Hacker Evolution games, Rogue Legacy (by Forum Effect), and that's it.   Everyone keeps talking about Hotline Miami but I've just not been able to pull the trigger on it....same with Surgeon Simulator and Kerbal Space Program.  They look neat but I'm just not sure they are my speed....

I spent about an hour with Hotline Miami.  While I certainly appreciate the artistic style, LSD-fueled story, and incredible music, I simply don't have either the patience or twitch reflexes for it.

I've gotten comments on my profile from Scraper and Teggy about robbing banks (but Monaco isn't on sale yet, so no-no I haven't robbed one).

The list looks huge, but it's mostly 25cent DLC addons.

The full list:


Spoiler for Hiden:
You Need A Budget 4
Borderlands 2 Creature Slaughterdome DLC
Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4
Tomb Raider: Agility Skill
Tomb Raider: Headshot Reticle
Tomb Raider: Animal Instinct
Tomb Raider 1939 Multiplayer Map Pack
Tomb Raider Caves and Cliffs Multiplayer Map Pack
Tomb Raider: Sure-Shot Skin
Tomb Raider Mountaineer Skin
Tomb Raider: Demolition Skin
Tomb Raider Shipwrecked Multiplayer Map Pack
Tomb Raider Scavenger Executioner
Tomb Raider: Shanty Town
Tomb Raider: Aviatrix Skin
Tomb Raider: Hunter Skin
Tomb Raider: Pistol Silencer
Tomb Raider: STG 58 Elite
Tomb Raider: M590 12ga
Tomb Raider: JAGD P22G
Tomb Raider: Tomb of Lost Adventurer
Tomb Raider: Pistol Burst
Tomb Raider: Fisherman
Tomb Raider: Scavenger Bandit
Tomb Raider: Scavenger Scout
Tomb Raider: Survival Edition ROW
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum
FEZ
The Walking Dead
Batman Arkham City GOTY
Ys I and II Chronicles
Borderlands 2 Assassin Stinging Blade Pack
Borderlands 2 Commando Haggard Hunter Pack
Borderlands 2 Siren Glitter and Gore Pack
Borderlands 2 Psycho Domination Pack
Borderlands 2 Psycho Supremacy Pack
Borderlands 2 Gunzerker Dapper Gent Pack
Borderlands 2 Mechromancer Steampunk Slayer Pack
Borderlands 2 Psycho Madness Pack
Borderlands 2 Psycho Dark Psyche Pack
Borderlands 2 Psycho Pack
Hotline Miami

But the condensed version is far more reasonable:

Penny Arcade's On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 4 - (have the other 3)
Tomb Raider: All DLC - (cuz I love me some advantages)
Tomb Raider: Survival Edition ROW - (wanted to play this so bad, but don't want the low-rez console version)
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum - (for my son)
FEZ  - (for my son)
The Walking Dead  - (heard good things, not getting this on last-gen consoles with no BC available)
Batman Arkham City GOTY  - (beat this on 360, but was too good to not want to play again with the DLC)
Ys I and II Chronicles - (nostalgia)
Borderlands 2 Psycho Pack, missing skin DLC packs  - (60-75% off IIRC, I had the season pass)
Hotline Miami  - (heard good things - friend at work explained that it's not just run-and-gun)

You Need A Budget 4  - (ya THINK?! slywink )

All told I'm sitting at exactly 80.02 spent sofar.

For reference, in Canada games are 69.99 *1.13 (taxes) or about $80 all told.

Disney Infinity, for reference, is going to cost me more off the hop, and then WAY more down the road.  finger

I've decided besides possibly GTA5 and DI, I'm not going to purchase any more current gen games - I might still pick up a couple of the summer-of-arcade titles, but that's iffy. I don't like the no-BC issue, and knowing that I'm in for the next-gen this year, I'm not going to be investing in this gen any further ... not even Splinter Cell Blacklist.

Not much.....slightly over 30 bucks.

Only full programs I've bought are Kerbal Space Program, Poker Night 2, and SS2.  The rest was nickle and dime DLC.

I haven't played much yet, but it seems to hold up just fine.  Then again, I'm partial to this kind of old-style RTS rather than the newer combat-focused ones.

We're only 3 days into the sale? You'll be back.

I finished with Hitman (courtesy of Gratch), Saints Row 3, Van Helsing, and Risen 2. Those combined with Skyrim and Witcher 2 should keep me busy until the winter sale.
