List of RTS games worth buying on Steam Summer Sale

I’m really having a hard time finding a game I could buy during the Steam Summer Sale of 2016. I love action RPGs but Grim Dawn looks like it’s not entirely there, I think it needs more polishing after seeing some friends play. Other action RPG titles on Steam don’t seem to be that good. COOP games are taken care of but what else is there?

One thing I miss the most from the old days of gaming (late 90’s) are RTS games like Dune, Command & Conquer, Age of Empires, Cossacks, Tzar and other similar titles (basically clones) like Age of Mythology (now on sale on Steam actually, the remake of it), Rise of Nations or Empire Earth.

I can’t understand why Microsoft haven’t created Age of Empires 4 considering they’ve even advertised it on AOE 3 retail box. I would instantly buy it, but Microsoft’s failed attempts at anything lately (Windows 10 forced updates, Windows 10 Mobile death before it even started, lack of nice PC exclusive games – Quantom Broken anyone?) I really don’t expect much from that company.

There are rumors that they might announce Age of Empires 4 on Gamescom conference in Germany on 18 – 21 day of August. They are about to introduce mouse and keyboard support to Xbox One (funny, right?) and this might be the right time to do it!

Remember the E3 trailer of Command & Conquer Generals 2? They have canceled it unfortunately… too bad it looked promissing on Frostbite 2 engine (used in recent Battlefield games).

However, I’ve noticed that there are a lot of nice RTS titles on Steam and it would be nice to check them out asap. Here is the list of the most interesting RTS titles I could find on this year’s Steam Summer Sale!

Age of Mythology Extended Edition €5.59

Age of Mythology Extended Edition

Just an Age of Empires clone with mythology. It’s pretty solid and it’s a HD remake.

8-bit Armies €12.74

8bit armies

This is like a baby of Minecraft and early Red Alert games. Look very promising, has coop campaign, single player campaign, skirmish and multiplayer.

Age of Empires Legacy Bundle €8.24

AOE Collection

Includes AOE 2 with all add-ons and complete edition of AOE 3.

Company of Heroes Franchise Edition €20.49

COH Franchise

Awesome World War II RTS. Hands down.

Ashes of Singularity €19.99

Ashes of Singularity

This is a Sci-Fi RTS from the makers of Sins of a Solar Empire. I loved that game but if it’s like Starcraft it’s not really my kind of thing.

I hope you found this short list helpful. Cossacks 3 is coming really soon and as soon as I get my hands on a copy I will be posting about that game on here. Long live RTS games! :D

The Steam sales are getting worse!

Every time there is a Steam sale on the horizon I think of buying something but when the event launches and I see the main store page I just can’t browse it. Why? The store displays all of the offers randomly, which means I can’t focus on any particular offer. I really preferred the old way of presenting sales on Steam, it was much more eye friendly.

The store browse function also sucks. Here’s an example, when you go to the RPG category in the store and want to sort the titles by the lowest price it always shows those damn free to play games first which you can’t even hide, after clicking through every crappy free to play game the store suddenly hangs you have to start over – we all know how big is the Steam store load during the sale, I couldn’t even drop any cards yesterday from that queue thing.

It seems that the store is getting DDoSed too easily, few years ago it was really slow for first couple of hours tops – yesterday it was unusable for the whole night. But that’s not really such a big problem comparing to what I’m about to list below, check it out. I’m sure they can afford to expand their servers farm easily, they just don’t care.

Steam Rage

Here are some things that I miss from the old sales:

  1. There are no flash sales that would keep me check the store every day, that was actually fun to see what games were on sale on that particular day.
  2. No mini-games! Come on! That was fun and rewards from them were pretty decent.
  3. There are no special event achievements in games. If you don’t know what I mean there was this one big winter sale on Steam once a couple of years ago were you had to gather coals by doing certain achievements in games, all of those games had special winter sale content in them, like maps, items and the earlier mentioned achievements. That was a lot of fun too!
  4. Most sales are crap. Majority of them are never larger than 50% anymore. We need bigger discounts!
  5. No special community tasks (such as leaving comments, adding friends, writing reviews, playing multiplayer in some game etc. to get something in return) for people to do is also a bad choice.

What do you think about recent Steam sales?

This is what makes people angry – especially the older gamers I think. Steam sales are particularly bad for people like me who own a lot of games that we bought over the years on… Steam sales. That’s why the catalog is no longer attractive to us and the most recent titles that we would want to buy aren’t discounted enough to even compete with the alternatives around the world. I remember that even the recently released games had some sort of discount during the sale time, now new titles don’t even have one like Ori and the Blind Forest.

Hopefully sales on Origin, Good Old Games, UPlay and other big platforms will be improved in the future. The recent ones aren’t even that bad considering you could get Battlefield games a lot cheaper on the EA’s store for example.

What do you guys think?

You can’t gift Counter-Strike: Global Offensive during the Summer Sale

I wanted to buy a copy for my buddy yesterday and I saw that the game was not giftable at all, I couldn’t even buy it to my inventory. It just said I already have the game and can’t do that. Meanwhile people on reddit were going nuts and some guy from Valve responded with this:

CSGO Not giftable

This is how you get the alternative stores more popular Valve, not the other way around. People will always chose the cheaper option.
