When the Steam Summer Sales were almost starting Tecsie decided to clean up their Steam wishlist a little bit by writing a Steam Wishlist Clean Up post which was inspired by Lia’s Down the TBR Hole book blogger meme.
I really liked this idea and asked Tecsie if I could take part too so here I am. Though with a slight difference, Tecsie managed to go through a lot more of her wishlist in one go. I already know that will not be the case for me. So you’ll likely see a few of these.
Sit back, enjoy, and browse some video games with me.
Hoo boy, are we really back here so soon after finishing? Yes. But whhhyy Lauren?
During the Steam Sales over the Winter period one of the tasks to gain more cards (on Steam you can get cards that craft into badges to level up your profile) is to go through their video game recommendation queue three times a day. Which I uh obviously do pretty religiously and therefore after a quick glance at a bunch of games a few find their way onto my wishlist.
Rather than letting this mount up to a ridiculous amount I decided to look back and reflect on my decisions would be a good idea after each sale! (Please Note: I am now a HumbleBundle Partner, this post includes affiliate links at no extra cost to you)
🎮 GRIS by Nomada Studio [purchase]
It was actually Tecsie that picked this game out for me cause she knew I’d love the art style! She was very right. In fact she also ended up buying it for herself and playing it on stream. After her gameplay I’m still convinced I’ll love it but I just can’t decide do I get it on Switch or PC.
🎮 Among Trees by FJRD Interactive
Wow, I’m acually speachless at how beautiful this game is. Its asurvival sandbox that isn’t out yet but yes I really want it. I see cute deer which is an imediate plus. Very excited for this one, perhaps I can get it on release to review for y’all! I’m that excited for it.
🎮 Life is Strange 2 by DONTNOD Entertainment [purchase]
I loved the first game from this series and I am excited for this one too so its definitely a game I’ll keep on my wishlist. Though I’ve not finished playing Before the Storm yet so I wont prioritise this one.
🎮 Donut County by Ben Esposito
Yes!! I really want this still, but again its another game I can’t decide on between Switch and PC. Help a girl out? You go around making holes in the ground and theres acute racoon too.
🎮 Prey: Typhon Hunter by Arkane Studios
Okay so I was ready to remove this anyway given that I’ve not played Prey itself but it also has very and mostly negative reviews sooo definitely going to hard pass on this for now.
🎮 The Outer Worlds by Obsidian Entertainment
This is a single-player sci-fi RPG where your choices effect how the story unfolds. This game isn’t out yet so I’ll keep this on my wishlist to see how it does at release.
🎮 RESONANCE OF FATE/END OF ETERNITY by tri-Ace
Hmm, I really am interested in this but knowing my existing steam library and JPRG games I already have I think we’ll pass on this one for now tbh.
🎮 Call of Cthulu by Cyanide Studio [purchase]
I’m always down for some more Lovecraftian horror in my life! So we will keep this on my wishlist. You get to play as a PI who looks into the tragic death of the Hawkins family whilst madness and horror ensues.
🎮 Gal*Gun 2 by INTI CREATES CO., LTD. [purchase]
This is another one of my questionable games where an army of girls fall madly in love with you and you gotta fight them off. It looks ridiculous and I feel like I’m gonna keep it because I am a large pile of trash.
🎮 Thief Simulator by Noble Muffins
I really couldn’t make my mind up about this game but I think I have other games that I want to play a lot more so we’ll say bye to this one tbh. It has aspects that I’m interested in so maybe one day I’ll come back to it.
Priority: 3 / 10
Keep: 4 / 10
Remove: 3 / 10
Steam Wishlist total: 146
Last time we checked in this was at 127 and now we are back up to 146 so theres still a few more I’ll have to go through so you can expect some more of these posts which I think/hope people like.
I hadn’t realised how close I was to being done and now I’m going to be sad this is over.
I do think I plan to keep Saturdays as video game related days in the future but I ‘ll just need to get some content ready to post for them so it may not be every Saturday.
Thank you for sticking with me through this journey and its nice to have had people enjoy the posts. Maybe I can check back in when I’ve bought some and give my first impressions.
