10 Awesome Discounted Games on Steam Sale
Hi, my name is ColdBeer and let’s start with Subnautica and Subnautica Below Zero Although I’m a fan of Jacques-Yves Cousteau, Subnautica always looked more like a Little Mermaid to me.
You know, a very colorful world, filled with shiny bright corals and fishes seemed like a game for kids and not for an old grumpy dude like me.
But, you know, as a youtuber I have to try a lot of games, at least a little, so I could have a perspective, so I installed the game and I love it now. It’s addictive and it’s really hard to stop playing. You know, they should put a label on it or something warning people that before and after the playtime – in that time years could pass without a trace.
When you finally finish playing, you go to your
bathroom to take a biggie for the first time in
like 20 years and you are suddenly this guy
“The place where you are supposed to have
toilet paper, you’ve got this little
shelf with 3 seashells on it.
He doesn’t know how to use 3 seashells.”
So yeah, that’s what Subnautica can do to you. And
Below Zero is Subnautica 2, but you don’t have to
play the first part to understand everything.
For example, I would start from the first part,
but just because I could have more of it to
play. But hey, it doesn’t really matter.
This game is basically a 3D Factorio, but Facorio
is being cocky about it and is never discounted,
so let’s talk about Satisfactory instead.
Here you will defeat nature by building
massive factories everywhere. Expand
wherever and however you want. Without any
annoying regulations we have here on earth.
Because you are not on Earth anymore.
All those animals and plants that live
here are scientifically unimportant. They
live to serve you and your factory.
Here you will find about 30 square kilometers,
which is about 11 square miles of terrain filled
with unique flora and fauna. You can recycle
everything and make factories out of them.
Build beautiful metal constructions instead
of ugly nature, cover the whole surface of
the planet with your elegant conveyor belts
and train tracks! Make that pathetic natural
habitat disappear and make beauty instead.
Be a true hero of the industrial era.
This is an RTS game based on Norse mythology in
which you play as a clan of Vikings vying for the
control of a mysterious newfound continent.
In this simple strategy game you
will find lots of victory conditions,
atmospheric music, changing seasons and,
as you can see, pretty nice art design.
Also the game has a decent campaign with a pretty
good story. Sadly, as I’ve mentioned many times
before, Northgard’s AI is cheating with infinite
resources and manpower, meaning that developers
couldn’t create really good Intelligence
that could win against humans on its own.
I know that many strategy games do not have
strong AI’s, but they at least try.
But you never know, maybe
developers were AI geniuses but
were afraid of accidentally making Skynet.
You know, being accused of making a bad AI
is one thing, but being responsible for a robot
uprising that destroyed human civilization – yeah,
you know, better safe than sorry.
Nevertheless, Northgard is a good RTS game
for a few days. Or maybe more, maybe you’ll fall
in love with it. You know, like a tapeworm falls
in love with your guts…
I know that this is a Base Builder Fest,
and you may argue that Days Gone has nothing
to do with it. Well, as always, you are
wrong. In game you will be building a lot
of relationships with brainthirsty zombies,
so check and mate to all your arguments.
This is an open-world action-adventure game
set in a harsh wilderness two years after a
devastating global pandemic which made a
lot of zombies out of unlucky humans.
Here you will take control of a bounty
hunter trying to find a reason to live
in a land surrounded by death. You will
scavenge through abandoned settlements for
equipment to craft valuable items and weapons,
or take your chances with other survivors.
Days Gone has very positive reviews on Steam,
so if you like zombies, give it a try.
Although have you ever imagined that
somewhere in the universe there is
probably a planet of zombies and they are
creating horror games about becoming human.
And honestly we actually
are pretty terrifying.
This is an amazing city-building
experience. True successor of SimCity, but with
all the benefits oldschool games never had.
And it’s entirely up to you if
your city has a school or maybe
you decide to grow a city of dimwits.
Or, you know, a factory in the middle
of central park? Why not, if you’re
not afraid of people’s disapproval.
But hey, since when mighty rulers are afraid
of something? Build a city of prisons,
show them who’s the boss. You know a city
made only of prisons and their staff.
Will anyone dare to misbehave in there?
That even rhymes!
I know, right? And then you may want to stretch
your waste disposal pipes directly to the ocean,
make a beach nearby and watch what happens.
Or build a utopia where everyone is happy and
nice to each other. It’s entirely up to
you how you decide to deal with this.
For example, maybe summon a tornado or
an asteroid. That’s If you own DLCs for
that – this game is littered with them, so be
careful. It’s a black hole for your wallet.
Also I must warn you this game is highly addictive
and will consume tons of your free time. Make
sure you have it.
They Are Billions
It’s impossible not to love the visuals of the
game. Such nice details are usually not present in
the games where you look at things from afar.
So it is a strategy game set in a distant future
about building and managing human
colonies after a zombie apocalypse
destroyed almost all of humankind.
Now there are only a few humans left
alive that must struggle to survive under the
threat of the infection. Billions of zombies
roam around the world in massive swarms
seeking the last living human colonies.
So you must build a town and protect it from
zombies. This is a simple and genius idea.
Well it is surely not new, similar missions
of building and defending your base against
swarms of enemies were implemented even
in the first Starcraft in 1998.
I’m not saying that you will enjoy this game
for a long time, but in a short period it
is a great vaccine against boredom. Just
don’t let that single zombie slip in. One
zombie is all it takes for your city to burn.
Be careful, they are billions, but you… you
are the last of us.
Here you will lead your customized
army to failure… well, or to victory,
which is less likely, on the proving
grounds of a not too distant futuristic
world consumed by corporate conflict.
Here you will also find a nice campaign
where you will fight in various terrains, from
atop of skyscrapers to marshy wet regions,
that will remind you of your ex, or
infiltrate heavily defended military
bases as you get to know the main characters
and goals of all three rival nations.
Multiplayer is also implemented, so you can
climb leaderboards or most likely never ever
see your name even close to the top or probably
at all. You can also team-up with your friend
in co-op maps and defend together. Or show your
adversaries who’s the boss. Probably not you.
People on Steam are saying that
Crossfire Legion has Starcraft
style gameplay within Command & Conquer
Generals style setting, which is great.
The downside of it is that you will need an
internet connection even for a single player
campaign, also it lacks map variety and some
other features, but keep in mind that the game is
constantly updated and it is new and complaining
is not what we do. More RTS like Starcraft
is better than less. Let’s not discourage
creators with our overwhelming whining.
Honey, I joined a Cult
The title is a bit misleading,
because here you won’t be joining a
cult, you will be the boss of it.
So let’s go and create our own religion and
become respectful cult leaders. In the process
make some real’good money and exploit others
by imposing our own will on various dimwits.
Here as everywhere else, effective management is
at the heart of every money-making enterprise and
your organization is no exception! Dressing
in snappy robes isn’t enough, your cult
must run like a well-oiled hypnotic wheel.
People on Steam are talking that this is a great
game to relax and play for an hour or so once in
a while. So if you like management games it may
be your spoon of potato salad, but don’t expect
miracles – it’s an entertaining game not an actual
cult simulator. You won’t be actually learning how
to scam people with imaginary friends. Anyway 8
out of 10 people are happy with the game, so there
is a chance that you will like it as well.
Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War
That’s a long ass name, I give them that. The game
has a very Positive review score and 90% discount
– that is great but of course there is a catch –
if you like the game, keep in mind that there are
about 13 DLCs available. So yeah, that’s a trap
for your wallet, but it may be a pleasant one.
Maybe you like to suffer. I don’t judge.
Anyway, Warhammer 40,000: Gladius – Relics of War
brings you to a world of terror and violence with
the turn-based 4X strategy game. Here you will
face a challenging AI and cooperate or compete
with friends and strangers across the globe.
Play as one of four iconic Warhammer factions,
each with their own unique playstyle and
technology tree. Explore a randomly generated
world filled with special features and threatening
wildlife that can crush your troop’s morale.
People on Steam are talking that this is a great
strategy game, but as I’ve mentioned before – many
say that without DLCs it feels incomplete. Well,
this price is a joke, so you can risk it anyway.
Still, more expensive than your sister.
And now, let’s quickly check out GOG’s
weekly sale as well. And oh la la, what is
that? An adult Content themed game sale? I
ain’t gonna click on that in general, I
don’t want to be demonetized, but hey,
