According to my steam library, I have 315 games, but of those I can only play 162 of them natively on Linux atm.

I didn't really buy anything this Steam sale.

The only time I ever buy a game off of steam is when I hear about an indie point and click game and tell myself I'm going to get back into point and click games, then I never play it. I have done this for the last 3 years or so. :lol:

Only bought a couple of games, and neither of them were more than £3.50. Was tempted by Wolfenstein, but just couldn't justify it when I have so many games to play.

I currently have 77 games, 45 of which I bought recently. Not bad. These are mostly games I wanted for ages so that's good!

Close to hitting 40 hours on Dark Souls now, got a relatively high dex character and off to get me some Lord Souls. Since I've properly got to grips with the play style I've been on a roll. Cracking value for the £6 or so I've paid for it.

Went on planetside 2 on ps4 there just to try it out, played for about an hour. It's a pretty fun game, although I'm still in the starter area, it seems decent enough for a free to play game.

Decided to hold for Saints Row 4. I found it for £12 on Amazon! As I say, I'm paying catch up.

Got it during the christmas/new year sale for £3.74 I believe :P

Very much the same here, but I also can't run it on my current hardware anyway xD

I wanted Wolfenstein, but I didn't 8.75 want it considering the other games I have on Steam.

On the point of wasting money, considering picking up a PS4. I really wanna play Bloodborne, and I'll need it for when Pro Evo comes out in September.

Wii just got a Wii U.

We'll be getting Splatoon by the end of the week and currently have Mario Kart 8 downloading. We also got Donkey Kong Country which is pretty sick. I think these three games are all I'll play.

Also the fact that Crunchyroll is on it is pretty neat.

The Wii U is actually worth buying now, but I'm waiting for the Zelda Wii U game myself.

Splatoon is pretty fun, though I've not played it in a couple of weeks after getting fed up with the matchmaking system, which is broken beyond belief.

If you never played Wind Waker on Gamecube, you might want to pick that up too. Hyrule Warriors looks like a fun game too (I have it, just haven't gotten around to playing it yet).

Damn that's cheap! Is it for the physical copy? Also at the moment considering I'm so far behind as I've not gamed for the last few years I really don't see the point in buying something new as they're so expensive. In fact I'm quite surprised by how many patches and updates you get on console games. You never got that sort of thing I. The 16 6 bit era. However you didn't get games like GTA5 haha!

As long as you only want bloodborne and multi platform games, go for it. The exclusives are shocking.

Yeah I'm literally buying it for Bloodborne, a better Pro Evo, and a decent bluray player.
