Elex is 33% off, I might grab it for that...or would I be better off grabbing Dragon's Dogma? 

 

Grim Dawn is also on my radar at $7.50.

Never played Elex, but I love Dragon's Dogma so much. It's a game I've bought three times at this point.

33 is not enough. 

 

I was wondering about Elite Dangerous, but it's multiplayer only. Those kinds of games die out when the user base dies out. How far off is that now.

Dishonored is like 2€ for folks who have yet to play it.

 

Other than that, I have no interest in any game. The stuff I *might* be interested in is still too expensive.

Elex is super fun, but it's an acquired taste. I'd recommend it to people who liked Gothics, and if you liked them enough to enjoy G3/R1 in particular.

Shadowrun bundle for the criminally low price of $7.18 since I already have Shadowrun Returns. Criminally tempting.

 

EDIT: $7.16. Caved in. Don't know when I'll play them though. How time consuming are they?

Grim Dawn is a fun aRPG in the vein of Diablo. I played to the end once (no expansions) and shelved it. So, worth $7.50 imo.

They aren't super long, I'd say 15 to 20 hours depending on how fast you read and if you do everything or not. This site has them at a little longer but not by much

Will definitely read as much as possible the first time unless the writing is not good. Got a suggested one to start with?

I'd do them in order as they build on each other as far as mechanics and features. I liked the stories in that order as well but I hear a lot of people prefer Dragonfall's story.

I bought Will-Nilly Knight (lokks like a Divinity: Original Sin light) and Skylar & Plux (seems inspired by Ratchet & Clank. There were 4 or 5 other games I looked at, but I decided that two games will do for this sale. I'll play them in 5 years, anyway.

I think I might jump on dark souls 3 for 15 Euro.

It's not the greatest sale in the world, however, Steam still has a bit better sales than anyone else and usually are the first to get bigger discounts.

Looking beyond the Featured Deals on the home page, revealing some hidden deals for some gems. Not bad.

Well for PS4, I have bought DS3 with all DLCs packed for the same price... I would expect a little bit bigger discounts in a xmas sale :p

Also I have never seen sale on any platform for cosmetic DLCs for JRPGs 9n the west. In Japan, they are on sale all the time... I would like to give some more money to Namco Bandai, bit giving 10€ for a few skirts, even if they are mega short, is a little bit too steep IMO. Probably I am just to old for that kind of waifu voyeurism :/

I agree with ShadySands to do them in order. Reason is they all great games but they keep improving on each one so the first one won't be AS good after playing dragonfall or Hong Kong first because of the improvements.

Hurlshot-As a huge fan of Diablo 2, Grim Dawn is to me what Diablo 3 shoulda been.
