    Wait, we have another Steam sale?? I've already bought like 10 new software titles over the last 3 months when the Pandemic Sales started. FML...

    I picked up Quake and Quake 2 for a couple bucks each, because I can play them on my Quest with the VR engine ports. I also got Doom VFR for 70% off. I had been holding out because the devs never added left-handed mode, but I’m comfortable enough shooting right-handed to muddle through, I think.

    Just scooped up Alyx on discount - it's AMAZING so far; it plays great wirelessly over Quest/Virtual Desktop!

    Age of Empires 1 and 2 Definitive Edition bundle in my basket... I'm still addicted to RTS's on my monitor, just replayed Starcraft and in the middle of Starcraft 2 (again) .

    For VR I've basketed IL-2 Sturnovik BoS (big discount) and BoB. Am hovering over the Road to the Black Sea DLC for ECS2, I haven't really played that sim much but I keep buying the DLC and that's the only one I don't have. It's a really well made sim and I feel like I'll get into it at some point.

    Thanks for the heads-up by the way, even though it's costing me! My 3 games HDDs are getting super full so this is possibly going to trigger a bigger SSD & HDD buy too.

    I picked up all the IL-2 stuff I'm missing, collector planes and such. Most of it's 75% off. Also grabbed boneworks and a bunch of flat screen games.

    I put what I wanted in the basket and waited to see if I could resist the purchase button. I lasted the whole day but failed just before midnight.

    I removed the IL2 Bodenplatte from the basket to make the total just over £30 and still quality for the extra £5 off. I figure I can now include that in another bunch of purchases tomorrow and get another of those £5 discounts!! I'll end up spending more but I'll have beaten the system.

    In reality... I'll just be spending more.

    Valve said that Budget Cuts was an inspiration for Alyx, but I always thought that game looked like some low-poly, silly and semi-boring game. I'd love to be wrong - so, is it good? :)

    But then you're forcing me to do the same thing  :#   :D   

    Steam recently warned me than I'm refunding too many games and asked me to read more reviews  o:)

    But did just buy (before the summer sale, sigh):
    Blueplanet VR (totally awesome using high-res lcd hmds)
    The Wizards Dark Times (has native Oculus driver support - best on CV1, needs asw 2.0)
    Yesterday Origins (yes, pancake, but point'n click adventure)
    Project Cars 2 (just to see it, but 50GB... sigh - does run great using Index res 125%)
    Street of Rage 4 (also pancake - for the kids and some family local co-op  o:)

    Refunded:
    Explore Fushima Inari (boring, not made for lcd hmds)
    Contractors (forgot there's no singleplayer)
    Down the Rabbit Hole (it was a fullblown Quest port :# )
    Obra Dinn (2D, great Metascore, but way too much nostalgia for my taste)
    Grip: Combat Racing (not great enough, my backlog only includes shiny stuff B) )

     hmmm, didn't realise they did that, wonder what the progression would be if you ignored that advice. Seems a legit thing to do if for example you're a games reviewer.

    I don't think I'd ever have an issue there though as I've never refunded a game... I must be easily pleased.

    i get why valve put limits on. personally i i have refunded 3 games one from steam and 2 from oculus .
    as for the sale.    The Mages Tale isnscreaming at me to buy for 6;quid odd but truth is i already have to many games and not enough time

    PS i dont think a games reviewer is a legit reason to refund games myself.

    partly because 1) why should they be allowed to get a game for free to review if they are not sent one and 2) because most games I would say it takes more than 2 hrs gameplay to give a fair review......... any reviewer abusing the valve refund policy to review games is likely to give a half baked review imo
    Fiat Coupe, gone. 350Z gone. Dirty nappies, no sleep & practical transport incoming. Thank goodness for VR :)

    The reason why I think it's legit is because they're not sent one so they can give an unbiased review or at least be seen to be unbiased. They can buy it of course and get recompense from viewing figures from their channel or whatever but that brings its own pressures and temptations by way of maximising likes and views. 2 hours of play, max, isn't like it's getting the game for free.

    And I realise 2 hours isn't going to be a full play thorugh but it's been enough for me to decide whether I like a game or not... and indeed 2 hours forms the basis of Steam's decision to refund or not so they must think it's long enough for that purpose.

    I think the steam refund warning is a ratio type deal. I've returned dozens of games but I've bought hundreds so I've never been warned lol. I think the warning just says that the refund system isn't for trying out games. Had a friend who got it because that's what he was doing. I'm not sure what follows if you continue to do it. Maybe they wont' grant refunds anymore?

    Too bad that i own all good VR games on steam or oculus already. I guess i need to buy pancake games to get rid of my hard earned money.
