    Okay, Time to Key-Dump. You probably know the drill, so let me know if you're interested in any of these. Just shoot me a PM with the games you want (take as many as you like) and I'll send them your way! (It may be a couple of hours before I respond as I'm heading out as I post this, but I'll hand them out as first come first served)

    Happy New Year, everyone!

    @anoffday @chris: waffle king how do you like Dungeon of the Endless? Just noticed it's only $4 and it looks like a pretty interesting puzzle/rpg/rts sort of game from what I've seen of it.
    In badge news, still have my last card on trade hold for another 16 minutes... How in the world RNG gave me 5 of one card and 4 of two other cards and still not a single one of several (thanks to traders here I got them).

    This reminds me of a series of Pete Holmes videos. Look up Pete Holmes Ex-Men on Youtube for some comedy gold. He also made a Street Fighter Red Tape series, the premise being the tournament is getting a budget cut and HR has to decide which fighters can't come any more.

    If the idea of a turn-based, real-time strategy, tower defense rogue-like RPG hybrid appeals to you, I highly recommend it. Definitely worth $4. Lots to unlock with different characters and levels that play differently. Provides good replay value. You can also stop and save at pretty much any point although you only have 1 save slot but it means it works for a quick or long play sessions. Also has a great dry sense of humor. @TeeMan is also a good person to ask :)

    my boys got steam gift cards for Christmas and decided to get Don't Starve Together (one got that and the other got a 2-pack of another game and they traded) and now they want my husband and I to get it too. I didn't realize it was an Early Access game. I generally try not to buy those. Does this seem like one to avoid until it's actually finished, or should we take a chance on spending the $10 for two copies?

    I've been playing a lot of turn based stuff on the Surface while the pc is down, this will make a nice change of pace. Got my bonus the other day so the rebuild will happen soon but I figure I've got another week or so to go and I was starting to fiend for something a bit more actiony. Gonna check it out after breakfast. Thanks mystery man!

    Klei are one of the examples of Early access done right. Don't starve was one of the first early access games, and it turned out brilliantly. I doubt it's any different for don't starve together.

    How does Don't Starve Together work as far as access? I have it in my library right now and I'm assuming it's because I have Don't Starve. Do you still get Don't Starve Together if you buy Don't Starve? Will I continue to have access to DST once it leaves early access (I'm assuming that I will)?

    I really liked Dungeon of the Endless during that free weekend they had last year. I don't think I ever cleared the first level, but the game felt so cool and unique that I decided to buy it! I don't remember if I bought it during that free weekend or if it was weeks/months later during another sale.

    Haven't touched it since the free weekend, but I keep meaning to.

    Don't Starve Together is awesome. It's exactly what you expect...Don't Starve gone Multiplayer. It plays well, is nice and stable, supports Mods, etc. Definitely worth it for family fun time! (I play with my wife and kids and we have a good old time)

    I think people who bought Don't Starve before the announcement of Don't Starve Together or for some period after received it for free. I'm pretty sure you keep it even after it is released.

    I'll second Kendrik, there may be the odd kink they are still working on but overall it is really solid.

    We should get a G&T Town of Salem game going. It's on Steam, but buying it on Steam just gives you in game money to spend on cosmetics. It's actually free to play at this website. It's basically Mafia with a different paint job and tons of custom roles. Would be a lot of fun for a FNG or something.

    I used to have fun playing that but more often than not people were cheating using skype or something. They would collaborate with each other even if they had opposing roles. It got so bad I stopped playing.

    If you can get a game of just PA people playing it should be fun.

    Unfortunately, I don't believe you can unless you are able to fill all of the open spots. I'm pretty sure a bunch of the phalla players in CF tried it out some as a way to play some quick games and ran into the same problems you did and a pretty toxic player base. I'd be game to give it a try if we could fill it up though.

    For you other Ori people who shared my gripe about the ending save file business:
    Found a pretty simple save file editor which will unlock your completed game by transporting you to a different area. Just tried it, and it works! I look forward to hopping all over the map and finding the secrets I missed. :D

    Ori and the Blind Forest Debug/ Save File Editor

    That's the powershell script I ended up using and it does work. Although I busted my save file at one particular point and achievements stopped unlocking until I went back to a different save backup.
    Depending on what you left behind on some of the areas though, you have to pull off some serious superhero moves to get back through the map and pick up anything left behind.

    Hey Steam thread!

    While I can come up with some ideas, I always enjoying finding stuff out from a larger group to catch any hidden gems I may miss, so without a ton of context or knowledge of what's already been suggested, I pose this to you. A friend just finished putting together a new gaming PC after years of missing out, they are now on the hunt for games before the sale ends and games to think about as they move forward into the gaming world again.

    I was given this information through separate comments in a conversation.
    - RPGs and Action Adventure games like Legend of Zelda
    - Grew up on Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy
    - Baldur's Gate
    - Starcraft and Civilization
    - Diablo 2

    Various friends have already given them some ideas and they already picked up Skyrim.

    What other suggestions based on the limited data above would you give?

    well shit.

    my massive chalice run has taken a turn for the worse. at some point i messed up my best lineages. between random death, infertility, and a skewed M/F ratio the bloodlines started dying off around year 110 or so. I'm in year 200 now but I can't win a single battle. My vanguards are getting murdered in the first few turns. Bleh.

    Just had to destroy a relic because the only member of the bloodline is a baby on the throne.

    there's nothing more disheartening than a team of archers that has about a 33.33 percent accuracy. let me tell you.

    you have a legendary relic in your hand.

    but you're less accurate than a storm trooper.

    and wiped. dang. losing after 10 + hours of play sure hurts

    Darksiders. It's basically a 3D Zelda game with God of War-ish combat and a grimdark atmosphere. It's really good, though! Not sure how the PC version runs, but I enjoyed my time with it on Xbox 360.

    Diablo 2: Diablo 3 with the expansion is an excellent lootgame and a new season starts the 15th which is a great starting point. Alternatives are Grim Dawn, Path of Exile(FTP), Torchlight 2, Marvel Heroes (FTP) Probably in that order of recommendation.

    Civ: Civ5 GOTY is an excellent game. After Earth isn't regarded highly. Endless Legend is amazing lore wise with cool gameplay ideas but it can be confusing and the AI is not great. Cities Skylines is also an option, the best modern city builder.

    Baldurs Gate: Pillars of Eternity is the definitive pick. The Shadowrun games are great turnbased RPGs.

    @anoffday @chris: waffle king how do you like Dungeon of the Endless? Just noticed it's only $4 and it looks like a pretty interesting puzzle/rpg/rts sort of game from what I've seen of it.
    In badge news, still have my last card on trade hold for another 16 minutes... How in the world RNG gave me 5 of one card and 4 of two other cards and still not a single one of several (thanks to traders here I got them).

    @Custom Special, Dungeon of the Endless is incredible. It's a potpie of genre types that works incredibly well together. It's turn-based in the sense that nothing happens until you open another door. It's realtime in that depending on what's behind the door things may get hairy for a bit. It's tower defense in that you can set up weapons in rooms, and it's sort of city management (?) in that you have limited power to light up rooms and prevent spawns and setup weapons. You can RTS your heroes around as well. It's got roguelike flavor in the randomness of gear & certain room types and finding heroes and deadly death.

    All together, though, it works incredibly well.

    I highly recommend skimming the thread for some of the meaty strategy posts by @The Dude With Herpes and others. I'm not great at the game by any measure, but I did go from being terrible to getting by after I read there that heroes are mostly pretty fragile and you want to use them to camp dark rooms and prevent spawns and maybe supplement heavy tower rooms more than DukeNukeming it. Thinking more tower defense and creating long kill rooms with complementary towers and keeping heroes out of melee as much as possible got me far enough to finish a game or two (no mean feat for me with all those floors....)

    It's a stylish and distinctive game with a lot to recommend it. If it takes, it's got a powerful one-more-door compulsion like the best turn-based games, but with chaos and a real payoff for thinking up a strategy, trying it out and having it work.

    EDIT: And it's $4 right now?!

    Glanced at my Steam/Good Old Games Libraries for a gaggle of ideas. A good selection of these games aren't going to push their rig, but they fit the criteria you've named.

    List is in the spoiler.
    Steam:
    Final Fantasy V (your friend has most likely played 6 on but V wasn't released in the SNES era over here)
    Underrail
    Fallout Classic Collection
    Knights of the Old Republic I + II
    CiV
    DarkSiders I + II
    ShadowRun Returns/DragonFall/Hong Kong
    Torchlight I + II
    PrimeWorld: Defenders
    Wizardry 6-7-8
    Aquaria
    Avernum: Escape From the Pit
    Crusader Kings 2
    Eschalon Series (1-3)
    FTL: Faster Than Light
    GeneForge Series (comes only as the series bundle, though)
    Grim Fandango: Remastered
    Insanely Twisted Shadow Planet
    Jagged Alliance 2
    Silent Storm
    The Legend of Heroes: Trails In The Sky FC/SC
    Pillars of Eternity
    Recettear: An Item Shop's Tale
    South Park: Stick of Truth
    Titan Quest Gold (Gold has both base game + expansion)
    VVVVVV
    Wasteland 1 + 2
    Witcher Series
    XCOM (2012)
    Ys Series (1+2/Oath/Ark/Origins)
    Septerra Core
    Lords of the Realm 2

    If they're also willing to use Good Old Games:
    PlaneScape: Torment
    Neverwinter Nights 1+2
    Arcanum: Of Steamworks and Magick Obscura
    Anachronox
    IceWind Dale 1+2
    And of course, if your friend wants to replay Baldur's Gate, the full saga's there as well. I usually recommend the originals if you're going solo and the EEs if going multi.

    Hopefully that should give you and your friend some ideas to work with.

    PC guts transferred to new case with shiny new Hyper 212 cooler. OMG so much improvement! Can't even hear anything running, and temps are vastly improved. Woo!

    Now to find a home for old case...

    Any fans of ATI/AMD here who like airbrushed art, the color red, and full tower cases with giant 12" side fans? :D

    How uh, how quiet is that thing?

    Hey Steam thread!

    While I can come up with some ideas, I always enjoying finding stuff out from a larger group to catch any hidden gems I may miss, so without a ton of context or knowledge of what's already been suggested, I pose this to you. A friend just finished putting together a new gaming PC after years of missing out, they are now on the hunt for games before the sale ends and games to think about as they move forward into the gaming world again.

    I was given this information through separate comments in a conversation.
    - RPGs and Action Adventure games like Legend of Zelda
    - Grew up on Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy
    - Baldur's Gate
    - Starcraft and Civilization
    - Diablo 2

    Various friends have already given them some ideas and they already picked up Skyrim.

    What other suggestions based on the limited data above would you give?

    Grab the Titan Quest key from my list above and give it to them. It's VERY much a Diablo 2 Clone. Grim Dawn and the Van Helsing games are also excellent ARPGs. I've already mentioned my love of Kingdom of Amaldur, but I'll point that out again, as well. Pillars of Eternity is a must-have as well if they liked the Baldur's Gate stuff. I've been enjoying PA: Titans at it's sale price, as well.
