Steam Sale | Capitalism Ho!

(Outdated) The Guardian Acorn Steam Summer Sale Recommendations

Update: Sales over guys.

Steam is at it again with their infamous sales that extend to a majority of their catalogue. However, given how vast this catalogue is, how will one know where to look? That’s what I am here for; to provide my readers with a list of recommended games for purchase along with their sale price. Additionally, there will be Amazon links in place of direct Steam links when possible cause I gotta make some money somehow, but they will only be there if the code costs the same on Amazon as it does on Steam (IE is also discounted). Anyway, let’s begin.


Cthulhu Saves the World & Breath of Death VII Double Pack ($0.98).

Bunny Must Die! Chelsea and the 7 Devils ($4.99) Review here.

Eryi’s Action ($2.49) Review here.

Eversion ($2.44) Review here (Based off the freeware version).

I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream ($1.19) Review here.

Penny Arcade’s On the Rain-Slick Precipice of Darkness 3 and 4 Bundle ($0.95) Reviews here (Episode 3) and here (Episode 4). Note: Episode 3 is okay, but the recommendation is mostly for Episode 4. You just get both of them for the same price as them released individually.

Recettear: An Item Shop’s Tale ($4.99) Review here. Note: The review gives across a harsher tone because it was one of my earlier reviews, which tended to be a bit more harsh than they are if I wrote them nowadays. The gist of my opinion is that gets kinda repetitive, but the hilarious writing and characters makes it worth it.

To the Moon ($1.99) Review here.

Sonic the Hedgehog ($1.24) (Experience is based off of the versions included in Sonic Mega Collection and Sonic’s Ultimate Genesis Collection).

Sonic the Hedgehog 2 ($1.24) (See above).

Sonic 3 & Knuckles ($1.24) (Never played much but I’ve seen enough to know that it’s good)

Sonic Adventure DX ($1.99) Review here.

Sonic Adventure 2 ($2.49).

Sonic the Hedgehog 4 – Episode 1 ($2.49) Review here

South Park: The Stick of Truth ($7.49) Review here (Based off the PS3 version).

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;birth1 ($5.99) Review here (Based off the Vita version).

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth2: Sisters Generation ($5.99). (Review here)

Hyperdimension Neptunia Re;Birth3 V Generation ($5.99) Review here (Based off PS3 version, which will have some inevitable differences but is probably closer to the the original than the other 2 Rebirth titles).

Megadimension Neptunia VII ($13.99) (Experience based off the PS4 version).

Final Fantasy III ($7.99) (Experience based off the DS version).

Final Fantasy IV ($7.99) (Experience based off the GBA Version).

Actual Sunlight ($0.49) Review here.

Neverending Nightmares ($3.74) Review here.

The eXceed Collection ($4.99) (A bundle of 3 Danmaku/Bullet Hell shooters. I only played the first one and a bit of the second one which was an improvement over the first, but I only reviewed the 1st one which is fairly good).

Adventure in the Tower of Flight ($1.59) Review here.

Angry Video Game Nerd Adventures ($3.99) Review here.

Bad End ($1.18) Review here (Only recommended if you happen to be a fan of video game based creepypastas or cheesy horror stories).

NieR Automata ($41.99) Review here (Based off the PS4 version).

Yooka-Laylee ($29.99) Review here (Experience based off the PS4 version).

Shovel Knight: Treasure Trove ($19.99) (Experience based off the Wii U version).

Kindred Spirits on the Roof ($24.49) Review here.

Negligee ($7.79) Review here.

Dragon Fantasy: The Black Tome of Ice ($3.99) Review here. (Based off the PS3 version. The first Dragon Fantasy is kinda meh though but is at least fun during chapters 1 and 3).

Tobari and the Night of the Curious Moon ($4.99) (Only played up to world 4 but it is pretty solid. Is hard AF though).

Haven ($0.49) (A very unique RPG that I only briefly played, but was impressed enough that I felt the need to recommend it anyway, especially considering how  low the price is).

Zero Escape: The Nonary Games ($33.74) (I have not played Virtue’s Last Reward, but 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors on the DS was fantastic).

Well that just about wraps my own recommendations. I figure it would be a nice opportunity to share what I played, as well as plug my own reviews and slip in a few Amazon Associates links.

Anyway, now it’s about time to dive into the Steam sale myself, as if I didn’t already have enough. Anyway feel free to share what any of you guys got from the sale as well.

  1. Someone else knows about Zeboyd games?!?!? They make some really awesome turn-based RPG’s. Cthulu Saves The World is one of my favourite RPG’s of all time!

    I still have yet to play the Penny Arcade games though. I don’t really know the series but I think I’ll check out your reviews to see if it is worth it.

    Aaaaaannnddd now you’ve just made me realise Cosmic Star Heroine has been released. Know what I’m going to be getting next in the sale. Thanks!

    1. I actually just got Cosmic Star Heroine in this sale as well. And yeah, I quite enjoyed Cthulhu Saves the World as well. Although Penny Arcade Adventures 4 pretty much shattered my expectations, and I’m legitimately surprised it isn’t more well known. Given the quality of Episode 4, and the fact that Robert Boyd said that he is embarrassed about all of his previous games in comparison to Cosmic Star Heroine. Anyway, the Penny Arcade Adventures series doesn’t require any familiarity with the webcomics or previous entries. The first 2 games are completely different from 3 and 4. They were okay but also not really my thing, so I’m more partial to the latter 2. 3 is worth playing for the humor, but episode 4 is the really important one.
