My holiday damage will be limited, as well...unless I manage to get my hands I'm a next gen console system...then, I could be in trouble.

Which console are you leaning towards for this generation?



Back on topic:  I haven't finished sustaining damage yet from the sales but I will report back once I've survived the game storm of sales.

Thus far:

Prison Architect    $14.99


Outside of that I don't see anything getting low enough in my wishlist for me to bite... however if it gets there I may.  The only other STEAM purchase I am considering is Tropico 4 Collector's Edition..... still going back and forth on it.  On Matrix CC Panthers in the Fog, but as of right now not sure I will purchase as it would be my first CC game.

I bought Fallen Enchantress and went through the tutorial.  Then I started my first game and my leader was promptly killed by a pack of wolves on turn 2.  Good times!!!

Out of curiosity, why Fallen Enchantress and not Legendary Heroes?  By almost all accounts, the latter is the superior game (although the former is apparently still definitely better than the original War of Magic).

Just got Rome II from Gamestop Downloads on sale for $40.  With a $20 gift card got it for $20.

Very tempted to get WitP:AE from Matrix but I'm scared  :(

I know the feeling, challerain.  I've come close to pulling the trigger on that one many times, but I always end up pulling back because I'm intimidated by its size & complexity.

I played FE for about 15 or 20 hours and just couldn't get into it.  I couldn't get the hang of the game and I couldn't figure out what I was supposed to be doing differently.

Based on superior reviews here for LH, I went ahead and bought Legendary Heroes a few weeks ago and I'm MUCH more impressed by it.  It's not perfect, but the game just feels like the pieces fit together much more tightly now.  I'm already past the 25 hour mark and have only played the Ironeer faction in any depth.  I have yet to play any other factions, much less customize my own.

In part due to how impressed I was by that, I official kicked off my Holiday Damage Party by purchasing all 4 DLCs (the Heroes pack, the Quest pack, the Map pack, and the Dead Faction pack) at 50% off.  Given that I only paid $20 for LH, I figure shelling out another $10 for additional content is fine.  I do hope that somebody designs some good mods to introduce additional Magic Items. 

The Magic Items that they have so far are fine, but they're not very abundant or particularly powerful.  I want my Magic Flame Tongue, by God!

So far, I've only bought Faster Than Light from GOG.com for $3.39. That price didn't last long and it's priced at $9.99 now.
Regardless of how good a PC game may be it will always have its detractors and no matter how bad a PC game may be it will always have its fans.

Far too early to post anything yet. I'll wait until the spending hits embarrassing levels.  ;D

Unless we're including board games, because then...yeah... :o 8)

So far, Decisive Campaigns: Case Blue for $25.99.  Something about this time of year always puts me in an Eastern Front mood.

Well, my first hit just took place; I got the Aerosoft PBY-5 for FSX just now.  Total impulse buy!
