How scary would it be to be in a long-abandoned Asylum you asked? Why not live through this hell-of-an-experience through the eyes of Miles Upshur? As an independent journalist it’s always nice to discover things on your own right? WRONG! Wait till you see what’s hiding deep inside of Mount Massive Asylum.
Outlast‘s story is told through the investigations of Miles, finding clues and paperwork. Think of Fatal Frame for the camera/handheld camcorder you’re having to use or maybe Clock Tower minus the holy water and bow meets Amnesia, the suspense of peeking around corners, sneaking pass enemies and hiding in tight spots not having any form of weapon really hits the spot in my taste of survival horror games.
Would really love to play the Demo of the game but might have to wait for the fast approaching release on September 4th available on Steam. (Sorry console players.. PC only) The game is on Pre-Order for $14.99, after that it’ll be back up to $19.99. Many have asked, and I also wonder will this be the next Amnesia?
I’m curious, will you be getting Outlast? If so, what do you expect from the game? If not, why the hell not?
Today is the half way point of Steam Summer Sale, I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one thinking Steam is holding out on us there must be better discounts!
I just want to share and list a little about what games I would personally grab and what games I would wait for. Don’t forget to follow my Steam Summer Sale Survival Guide to be sure to save some money for food!
1.) System Shock 2 – 75% off ($2.49) Grab!
- System Shock 2 was released in 1999. It is a action role-playing survival horror game, even though it’s old it’s one of the greatest underrated PC game.
2.) Alan Wake – 90% off ($2.99) Grab!
- Alan Wake was in Humble Bundle couple months ago in case you missed it grab it now on steam. The game came out in 2010. Creepy atmosphere, intense combat, storytelling survival based game.
3.) The Secret World – 50% off ($14.99) Meh.
- MMORPG gone from pay to play to buy to play, I waited for the game for years and I closed beta tested the game, it had great potentials, didn’t live up to my standards. It’s worth a try if you’re looking for a MMORPG just to fool around in, not a MMO I’d spend a lot of time on.
4.) Mark of The Ninja – 75% off ($3.74) Grab!
- Side scrolling 2D action adventure indie game, I personally haven’t got a chance to play this myself but I’ve heard many great things about it. Thinking about grabbing it myself 🙂
5.) Sleeping Dog – 75% off ($6.24) Grab!
- Similar to the game Grand Theft Auto that we all come to love, a open world game that you play as an undercover cop trying to take down the criminals from inside out with plenty of quests and awesome melee combat action-ness! (I know that’s not a word shhh) Anyways grab the game already!
6.) DmC Devil May Cry – 50% off ($24.99) Meh.
- Growing up loving this series of chaotic action pack gothic game on the Playstation up until Devil May Cry 4, tried it on the PC needless to say it wasn’t made to be played on the PC, I ended up using my controllers to play, I can tell that it wasn’t like the previous Devil May Cry that I come to love. I would grab it if it comes down a little lower just to give it a try.
7.) Orc Must Die 2 – 75% off ($3.74) Why not.
- Co-op orc slaying action indie game, why not?
8.) Rising Storm – 50% off ($9.99) For all you Red Orchestra fans grab it.
- Save 25% if you own Red Orchestra 2!
9.) Crysis 2 Maximum Edition – 70% off ($8.99) Meh.
- It was in a Crysis bundle sale on day 3.
Dishonored – 66% off ($10.19) Grab!
- It’s been staying at $10.19 for a while now grab it while you can, won’t regret it!
Amnesia – 80% off ($3.99) Grab! Flash Deal POOF!
- Indie horror game that’ll make your heart stop while being chase by monsters you can’t even see
Dragon Age: Origins – Ultimate Edition – 70% off ($8.99) Grab!
- Love love love the games Bioware made, fell in love with the Mass Effect series, I just had to grab Dragon Age when it first came out, needless to say amazing roleplaying game! Ultimate Edition includes Dragon Age: Origins, Awakening and all 9 content packs which I bought one by one when it first came out, storyline’s amazing.
The rest I didn’t list because I’ve seen it gone down lower and will probably get lower before the Summer Sale is over. I think Sleeping Dog and Dishonored is well worth the price, so tell me what game do you think is well worth the price in today’s Steam Summer Sale? Once again feedbacks, suggestions, and criticism are always welcome!
