The MMOs of the Steam winter 2019 sale

    
7

Valve’s summer winter sale has arrived, bad gateways and all, along with a dopey (sorry) winter market minigame thinger. Here’s everything that caught our eye in Steam’s sale – we will note that a lot of these sales are much better than summer (and Black Friday too).

On Steam…

Outside of Steam…

  • WoW’s store has a sale on soooo much stuff.
  • Gamigo’s games aren’t on sale on Steam, but it seems as if each title is running a sale off Steam. Trove, for example, has discounted Vanguardian packs.
  • Neverwinter, Champions Online, and Star Trek Online all have sales on Arc right now.

WoW even did a whole promotional video for sparkleponies.

If you spy more, and you surely will since a lot of companies are still rolling these out, drop ’em in the comments. And try not to overspend. You know who you are!

Damn it… I bought the Archeage pack for $9.99 not realizing it was not for Unchained. Not refundable. I think you should add a note next to it so people who don’t realize there are 2 versions out won’t make the same mistake and waste money. I thought the original got scrapped for Unchained only to find out that is not the case. Played for a day, and now I’ll be uninstalling because I don’t feel like dealing with P2W.

For the PS4 folks out there PlayStation Store January sales have started, even though Christmas sales is still ongoing.

Quick glance through I saw some pretty big discounts for the mmos and related genres such as Black Desert, FFXIV complete edition, ESO, Paladins, Ark, Citadel Forged with Fire, Overwatch, D3, bunch of store currency bundles for Neverwinter & STO. I am sure there will be others I missed.

Even though I was going to wait ESO Elsweyr for under a tenner yes please and thank you. Now I just have to wait till Tuesday when I get home so I can play it.

My wallet weeps some more

BBB, what did you pay for Elsweyr? I’m in the Xbox One crowd (it was never a choice – my son is a rabid Halo fan). Headed to the Xbox store to see what’s discounted there …

£9.99 for the Elsweyr upgrade. Doesn’t come with anything fancy beyond unlocking content and necro but that is all I wanted so good enough for me.

Thanks. I’ll probably drop the money on the Xbox digital edition that includes Summerset and Morrowind, even though I already have the latter.

I’m playing the single-player and not so massively 4 player online (in build mode on Awakening Island) Dragon Quest Builders 2 right now.

I thought that if I had any extra money I’d buy Red Dead Redemption II but I was in the mood for a Minecraft or Terraria like experience and tried the huge Demo of Dragon Quest Builders 2 and got hooked. I rarely put in the time to finish single-player games but it has a multiplayer building component and island sharing and visiting features and I dunno, something about the quirky beginning story just drew me in.

It has enough online features to mention it here in a not so massively way :D

Luckily it’s not on sale (for those of us who just bought it anyway). I just paid $60 for it yesterday and if it was half off or something today my jaw would have hit the floor. It only released last week actually so I wouldn’t expect it to be on sale but you never know.

Where I live, at least, it’s 10% off at Green Man Gaming for a key that is redeemed on Steam (and has been sold at a discount there since launch).

This one has really tempted me. I love the game — I believe I have a few hundred hours on the Switch version — but up until now I’ve always refused to purchase games with Denuvo. Worse, it has an early adopter bonus, meaning if I don’t get it while the bonus is available I will refuse to ever get it, even if Denuvo is removed, unless the bonus is made available again.
