While younger gamers have flocked to the brand, more mature consumers remain reluctant to jump on board. Skylanders move forward with trappable enemies, though I doubt it’ll turn stubborn heads.

I have and will continue to have a place in my heart for Nintendo. In fact, my first console was a Super Nintendo. The video game market has changed drastically since the early '90s and it seems like what once was platinum is more so along the lines of silver now. Nintendo has always been...

The Steam Summer Sale Is Over, What Did You Get?

Posted on Monday, July 23 @ 11:28:59 Eastern by Jonathan_Leack

After almost two weeks of game sale adrenaline the Steam Summer Sale has come to a close. Award winning games like Portal 2, Batman: Arkham City, and Dead Space 2 were offered for anywhere between 60% to 75% off, and now just about everyone is backlogged till kingdom come. First world problems, right?

I was hoping to pick up Max Payne 3 for less than $29.99 but it never broke past that point, but I did end up with the following:
  • Alan Wake ($7.49)
  • Grand Theft Auto: Episodes from Liberty City ($4.99)
  • L.A. Noire ($4.99)
  • Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit ($4.99)
  • The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition ($15.99)
I've already managed to beat Alan Wake, which was a pleasant experience, and I've spent a few hours in the other four. The Witcher 2 is my favorite of the five so far, and I feel bad having missed out on it when it came out over a year ago. I already had the PS3 version of L.A. Noire but I never even got close to beating it, so I figured I'd give the PC version a shot... and chances are I won't beat it either. It's repetitive, but sweet baby Jesus does it look good on High settings.

The sale probably lasted longer than it should have since we saw a few games appear three or more times, but overall it was a fantastic year for cheap Summer games.

So, what did you buy?
