    How often do they have these sales, anyway? Once a season? Once or twice a year?

    They do small sales, but really deep discounts, all year long. Usually a handful of games, but 60-70% off every week. The summer sale is the huge one though.

    Yeah, I know they have a daily/weekly special (I picked up XCom on one of those). I just wasn’t sure if there would be a “fall sale” and “winter sale” to go with the summer sale. C’est la Vie.

    P.S. I’m Gramarye on Steam if anyone wants to friend me there. :-)

    I picked up Tomb Raider. Beautiful, but easy game. I’m ricospaz on Steam!

    A game doesn’t need to be ridiculously challenging in order to be fun to play. Tomb Raider was fun times (and I’d never played any of the earlier games in the series, so this origin story was a great place to start).

    It can eat up a lot of time. I play it sporadically and have a few different games running at any one time. The nice thing is you can pick up where you left off pretty easily.

    Just searched and it only finds someone from Texas who hasn’t logged into Steam in 250 days. Hrmm…

    It’s fun, but it’s a button tapper. I don’t have a lot of time to play games, so I want to get the most out of it. Still, It’s purty

    Seriously, Hero Academy rules. Asynchronous play (across PC/Mac & iOS)… someone else needs to challenge me & Walker.

    Seriously? It’s got a metacritic score of only 75.

    And I kind of swore off the Steam Sale after my binge last week. Maybe next time it’s on a daily special.

    25% of reviewers are idiots who don’t like turn-based strategy. ;)

    PS: It’s only got 5 critic reviews on Metacritic. That’s a pretty small pool of people to pull an average score out of… http://www.metacritic.com/game/pc/hero-academy/critic-reviews
