For starters, a friend surprised me by gifting me one of my top wishlist's wishes, even though it's barely on sale and quite expensive IMO: PowerWash Simulator! I know, I know, doesn't that sound silly for a game? But it has an overwhelmingly positive rating and I now understand why! This game is so well-made and perfect for relaxing (which is EXACTLY what I need, especially right now!), and very satisfying for the mildly-OCD folks like me I LOVE IT!!! I've already played it for almost 10 hours since I got it a few days ago, which says a lot, and I can HIGHLY recommend it if you're in need of relaxation !
I offered myself 4 Planet Zoo DLCs I was missing as their prices dropped to their lowest on various sites (Instant Gaming and Fanatical): Europe, Wetlands, Conservation, and Twilight. I didn't get the latest Grasslands one yet, as it wasn't cheap enough (well, it was for a moment on Instant Gaming, but I hesitated too long and then they ran out of keys, and then they brought it back but not as cheap).
With my Christmassy Steam wallet refilled (gift from my partner John), I already got the last 2 House Flipper DLCs I was missing (one of my fave games for relaxing!), namely the Luxury and HGTV DLCs. Love 'em, just as I knew I would. I got the Pets DLC in the Autumn sale, and love it as well.
Even though he's already given me my Christmas gifts, my partner John bought us Splendor last night, a board game that we've enjoyed on the iPad, and now we can Remote Play it Together on the PC. I've added it to the multiplayer game list I'm keeping here on RKC.
I bought Cat Quest II on Fanatical when it got real cheap. Love to play it with John! (we use the Remote Play Together feature, which works well).
Now, with what's left in my Steam Wallet, I'm hesitating between the following games:
I am DYING to get this one, an open-world survival-craft, even though I wish the discount was a little better than their usual 33% off... I think I will have to include this one, because I know I'm going to love it! It can be played co-op, too! I love the premise, love the way it looks, love all the various things that you can do, AND it has an overwhelmingly positive rating!
2 DLCs for Parkitect
I've been waiting FOREVER for this game's DLC to have a better discount, holding off finishing the game's campaign because of it, but it's always the same discount! So, okay, I'll finally get those two DLCs even thought they're way overpriced. I'll bet they will get cheaper as soon as I own them!!
Let's Build a Zoo + its Dinosaur Island DLC (as a bundle, cause of the extra bundle discount)
I adore the way it looks -- those colorful pixel graphics are delightful and right up my alley! I also like the idea of splicing different breeds of animals together. BUT... I'm reading some reviews about glitches, user interface imperfections, missing/badly-thought out features... and the late game becoming too repetitive and boring. Soooo... I'm still on the fence about this one, even though I want it really bad in theory.
The Planet Crafter
I've been interested in this game since the beginning. It looks very interesting to me (I love sci-fi), love the colorful graphics and open-worldness of it, the theme, everything... BUT it's still in Early Access (which I try not to buy) and it's only 20% off (even though the price will get higher when it's out of Early Access, I hear). I will probably wait a little longer for this one.
Megaquarium and its DLC
I was thinking of getting this game and its DLC, but it was cheaper in the Autumn sale, so I'm scratching this one off my Christmas shopping.
What about you? Have you gotten anything yet? Or which games are you thinking about possibly getting? Do you own any of those I'm hesitating about?
