Both "Legend of Heroes: Trails of cold Steel" are currently on discount.
It's a series that's supposed to be really good.

No other Falcom game though...
Personally, I'm waising for a discount on Trails in the Sky to start the series from there, and Ys to get Celceta and Lacrimosa that I'm currently missing.

I'm going to plug this again as it's really fucking good. It's like a Japanese version of INSIDE but with a more coherent, personal story a la Firewatch or The Vanishing of Ethan Carter.

Came out two weeks ago but that's close enough.

Good thread btw. I had a look myself and couldn't see anything that interested me enough to share but I'll keep an eye out for the future.

Siralim 3 came out a couple of weeks ago and I've been playing nonstop. It's a combination of pokemon and disgaea. 700 monsters to collect each with a unique ability. Put a team together and see how far it takes you constantly level grinding and getting stronger.

Sure, do it! I saw that game on Steam but I was not sure if this game would be good. Anyway has very good coments on steam so....

I'm not a PC gamer but thanks for your hard work in putting the thread together.
Hey don´t worry if I see that any of these games comes to consoles I´ll put it on the title! I rather to play on my PS4 but there´re a lot of fucking awesome games that only comes for PC... most of the times I wait for PS4 version but other times is not posible.

Awesome thread. Thank you will check out some games on steam as i have 150 in cash on steam
Hahah thanks!

First up, thanks for the thread, much appreciated. My 2c on some of the games:

Call of Cthulu looks interesting. Will add to the 'buy when it gets cheap' list.
Orphan looks like a rip-off of Limbo.
Project Hospital is one I'll need to have a proper look at to see if it's worth my time when I have Theme Hospital (I get that they're different styles).
Rise - looks like shit.
Kartkraft - this has been in development hell for years and finally made it to early access - not currently compatible with quite a few wheels, no proper (multiview non-stretched) triple-screen rendering yet and no VR yet so it's a hard pass from me til it gets sorted.
Meow Motors - It'll have to go some to beat Sonic and Sega All-Stars Transformed or whatever the fuck it's called.

Thanks for your kind words!

Hahaha! I have the retail edition, maybe I can give you an update in some weeks.

Project Hospital is one I'll need to have a proper look at to see if it's worth my time when I have Theme Hospital (I get that they're different styles).
I am surprised about this because a month ago was released Two point hospital and was a hit! And now Project hospital is going so well too. That´s crazy.

Meow Motors - It'll have to go some to beat Sonic and Sega All-Stars Transformed or whatever the fuck it's called.
Huaha I like this, last time I tried a game like thggis was Super fruit all stars racing and I didn´t snjoy it all, but this is going well and people like it!

My first response to this was, "are you implying that something worth looking at comes out on Steam every week?" Then I checked out the titles and I'm glad I did. I think a screenshot from each game in the thread would be cool, too.

Would love this to be a serial OT.
I would love to, thanks!

Yes, I thought the same, but maybe with the images the threard becomes too long? You think that will be a good idea? Maybe is to heavy to read or to follow.

I think this a great thread.

How do you select the titles you picked? Do you play a lot of games in a short amount of time or do you go through the release list and discard the low effort garbage?

Actually I am working on a data analisys company so I have multiple tool and methods to choose which TAGS are beign popular on Steam and check from where is comming the information to every game. I check how much relevance has a title on internet so this means that there´re a lot of people talking about him.

On the other hand I was playing games since SEGA MEGADRIVE so I am a geek. So more or less I am able to see what game is not a shit on Steam. Anyway, I pick every day the games that follows the next parametres:
- Price
- Number of coments
- Quality of coments

So at last all the things that I check is:

- Key art
- Price
- Number of coments
- Quality of coments
- Value of the TAGS
- Steam page trafic
- SEO

Generally people have a rough idea of the dates as Valve aren't great at keeping secrets.
HAHAH

Cool. I'm new to steam. There's so much on there.
mmm you are going to live the worst days of Steam....

How about this game by the creative director of Valiant Heart in collaboration with Aardman animation
I´ll update it the next week, looks well.

I reckon the best option is to post the previous week's list as a new post in the thread, with the top thread containing the latest, with links to the posts for each prior week's list, but that's just my idea - there may be better approaches.

Actually is a rellay good solution. I really apreciate the idea.

So do not exist any tool to hide part of the post right?

Not that I know of, perhaps the spoiler tags could work? The only thing there is that if it gets huge it might become a pain in the arse, especially from a browser rendering standpoint, all that extra content generated when you add a steam link (which seems to have broken due to too many items in one post but that's a matter for another day).

Yeah! That is just I was looking for!

But I don´t know how to do it. I was looking in the edit tools, but seems I am idiot haha.

Looks good to me, barring the issues I mentioned above - that it could get a bit hard on browsers.
Then lets pray for its devices...:messenger_clapping:

I backed their Kickstarter a couple years ago. I'm anxious to see if its any good too. With all due respect, I'm a bit hesitant because I haven't exactly been following their updates. I own most of the Ultima Underworld titles and they're a lot of fun.

There's some late 90s love letters going on. GRIP should be really good - basically Rollcage returns. And FMV taking off again. I see the same actor from Contradiction is in The Shapeshifting Detective.

I find myself really wanting to like Steel Rats, motorbike destruction and combat should be cool, but not sure.

Is maybe the same developer or publisher?

Me too, the trailers are amazing, but i´m not sure about the gameplay. People who played love it, but I am not sure at all.

You got rid of the cover art?? Come on, give me something to look at from each game so that I don't have to click through to every steam page to see what it looks like!
Hhahhaha Is a lot of work mate, but I´ll try it the next time. What would you like sir? A screenshot or maybe the inlay of the game? :)

Great thread. I'm strongly considering picking up Shapeshifting Detective.
Thanks, happy to be helpful here.
