In the last few days I accumulated lots of unrefundable steam wallet funds, and I bought Dragon Dogma, Darkest Dungeon, Tales from Candlekeep and Hyperdimension Neptunia first. I wish to buy more, especially since there's steam sale and I'm going to have lots of free time in upcomming months.

 

This is what I'm contemplating to buy

 

 

Momodora - RuM - nice artsyle, but little too dark for me? I'm also not a biggest fan of platformers and difficult games, but I can learn to appreciate them

Shadwen - Frozenbyte title, love this studio, but I heard so many bad things for this game

Hyperdevotion Noire - mostly because cute artstyle, but I can't play it while my family is nearby, if it's anything like HD N1

Valkyria Chronicles - would be perfect game, but it's not fantasy

Anima Gate of Memories - seems fun

DOSEE - already own it on gog, would like to get it for trading cards + sheer support for devs, but it would be quite expensive to get it just for trading cards

Full Metal Furies - maybe, really dig the artstyle

Aegis Defenders - maybe

ABZU - maybe

Avadon 2+3 - Have first, because dear friend of mine recommend it to me, but detest artstyle - actually this title doesn't have artstyle.

 

Anything to recommend?

Hmm. I played through Tales from Candlekeep last year, and if I wasn't such a D&D fan, I wouldn't recommend that game (perhaps refund that too?).

So, Valkyria Chronicles, it's a pretty fun game, but big and frustrating (as in difficult), with a lot of cut scenes. It's like a Manga WW-fantasy vision set in a fictional Europe.

DOSEE is obviously good enough, but you already own it. Oh, and VC's long load times were frustrating, apart from all the restarts of acts (it's a decent port, but not optimized in any way).

If you can stand old graphics, I'd recommend:

-Dungeon Siege II (Plays perfectly in Windowed Mode in Steam, while not officially updated for Win10 200+ h unadulterated light CRPG fun)

-NWN1 EE + all those sweet official premium mods (the latter alone like 150 hours of great D&D, almost everlasting).

Disciples 2; possibly 3.  These are turn based fantasy land snatching games. They have great art-style; practically look like animate oil paintings.

Hmm, Disciples II looks great, but then I read this under reviews:

" For it's age , it's not a bad looking game. I almost gave up trying to play this game for the first time so look through some guide and check google to get it fix then it is worth the while :) Do some reinstall as well, did it 4 times with different solutions . It is 18 years old game so go figures. "

So, it needs some tinkering to work on modern PCs.

Abzu is good but really short.

Momodora was... weird, for me. I didn't care for it all.



I agree that trading cards are fun and beneficial to accumulate :)

GoG sells it, and it works fine for me... I assume the Steam version is equivalent to the one GoG sells.  That review reads like they don't know how to play, rather than can't get it to run.

 

When I first bought the game (yes I've bought it more than once), for the first half an hour, I was unsure if I'd made a mistake; it was very unusual. But during the following seventeen hours that I kept playing it—that session, I decided that I had made a good choice. :)  It is certainly one of those, "Just one more turn..." titles; or it is for me.
