Yeah, honestly, I wouldn't mind a "walking simulator" where you've just gotten rid of combat. I'd love one where the environment itself is your antagonist, like a malfunctioning space station where there's nothing paranormal or evil going on, just a natural disaster or an accident.

have you tried NaissanceE?

I know this is a little vague, but I finally got a better laptop. My old laptop could not run games like XCOM 2, Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Witness or Shadow of Mordor. My new laptop can, on low settings, but nothing more intensive than those games - no DOOM or Prey for example. Is there anything really good that I probably couldn't play before but probably can now? Those are enough to be getting on with but I'd like to update my wishlist.

But barring a few outliers like Spore where the game changes to an altogether different game halfway through, 35 hours is a substantial amount of time to put into a game to decide you don't like it. I understand a few hours but 35?

I mean not every game is Lawbreakers where you can play it for just a few minutes before realizing it's trash but come on

did you not read the bit where the OP decided that since they couldn't refund it they would put the effort in to provide a good review?

the Weeklong Deals look pretty awful from here

there are slim pickings this week. these are the games that fell out of my spreadsheet when i shook it:

Realms of the Haunting - $0.99 (-90%) - proper old-school FPS gothic-horror game. I still have the original 4-CD set of this
Shattered Planet - $1.49 (-90%) - isometric roguelike featuring short runs and progression
Spice Road - $4.99 (-75%) - city-builder and trading sim

also:

Kingdoms of Amalamadingdong: Reckoning™ - $4.99 (-75%)
Dungeonmans - $9.89 (-34%)
Darkness Within 1: In Pursuit of Loath Nolder - $1.59 (-80%) - didn't this survive one of the horrorween review months?
Black Closet - $7.99 (-60%)
Slime Rancher - $13.39 (-33%)

Also someone tell me the best dungeon-crawlers on steam that have turn-based combat and aren't 15+ years old. I can't wrap my head around real-time combat in these types of games so no Grimrock or the like. I'm already well aware Grimoire is a thing that exists.

Have you looked at Heroes of a Broken Land?

It is also on sale this week for 5 bux

I saw GOG was having a sale so I browsed the deals. "Throne of Darkness". Just seeing the name made me remember the game- I played a demo of it off a pc gamer demo disc years ago, haven't heard of it or thought of it since. It's a Diablo 2 clone but with a samurai aesthetic. No doubt it's not a good game but I am going to try it out of curiosity and nostalgia. Anyone else ever play it ?

i (still) have it and it was decent.

Hey BTW I added a ton of folks just so I could see the silly names you gave items but now I'm coming to realize that there's zero way for me to keep track of who I recently added and, thus, cannot group you on my friend list the way I wanted to. Does anyone know of any reputable plug-in or program that smartly helps me sort out my Steam friend list which probably hasn't updated its code in 8 years?

when I send a request to someone I go to the friends list and add details to the nickname (username and/or where from), then when the request is accepted, just move to the relevant friend group.

just rescued strix from a rather large ship with seconds to spare. made my way through with some lucky drops and got to strix with not enough time to get back to the pod. went to the outer hull, shot a window ejecting us both and then remoted the pod to pick us up, 2 seconds before death.

Asteria - $4.99 - terraria-alike where each tier of tech is earned through a unique map and boss fight
