Welcome to another edition of the PCG Q&A, with a twist! This week we thought we'd discuss what we've bought so far in the Steam Summer Sale 2019, but in the form of a back-and-forth discussion about game buying habits. We'd love to hear about what you've been buying in the comments below.If you need recommendations for the sale, check out our picks for games under $10, and our constantly updated list of the best PC games for broader advice on our favourite games around right now. Samuel Roberts, UK editor in chief: So far in this Steam sale, I've bought Dusk, Baba is You and Stalker: Call of Pripyat. I blame the last one on my recent viewing of Chernobyl and our top 100 discussion, and Dusk is the kind of retro shooter I've been after for a long time. I actually don't know anything about Baba is You, but everyone else on Team PCG seems to like it, so that's the story of how I spent money on that. What have you folks bought in the Steam summer sale so far? Phil, PC Gamer … [Read more...] about What did the PC Gamer team buy in the Steam sale?
Summer steam sale
Steam hold sales for almost every season whether its summer, spring or autumn. Steam also doesn’t like to share when the sale will start and every year they leak. This year is no different as dates for Steam autumn sale and winter sale 2018 have leaked. The leaked dates for Steam Autumn sale and Winter sale 2018 comes from Kotaku. According to the leak, Steam Autumn sale will start on November 21 and will continue till November 27. As for the Steam Winter sale, it will start on December 20, 2018, and will continue for two weeks till January 3, 2019. These dates fall in line with the sales that took place last year and the year before that. Like always, I expect great discounts on video games on Steam sales. However, given that this is just a leak, take it with a grain of salt. Furthermore, before the Autumn sale stats, there is a Halloween sale that will take place before that.

Ni no Kuni 2 is a cluster bomb of adorable that you shouldn't be sleeping on. If you missed out on the adventures of cat-eared King Evan and his gang of higgledy helpers, a price drop and a significant update make now the perfect time to fix your mistake. The patch applies to the PlayStation 4 and PC versions of the game, and adds Hard and Expert difficulty modes. Ni no Kuni 2 is definitely one of the gentler JRPGs when it comes to combat, so this update will be a welcome addition for anyone who needs an excuse to stay a little while longer in the magical kingdom of Evermore. The video below gives you some idea of how the new modes change up the action, though if the sea of damage points and colors is too much for your Friday afternoon brain, it looks as though you can expect to take around 50% more damage in Expert.

Cinematic indie adventure game Forgotton Anne will soon be getting a major update that brings multiple language options with it. To mark the occasion, developer Throughline Games will be offering it at a 25% discount as part of the Steam summer sale. In Forgotton Anne, you assume the role of the titular Anne, an enforcer that keeps order in the Forgotten Lands, a magical world inhabited by creatures made up of lost items called 'Forgotlings.' There are some light puzzle-platforming elements in its 2D world, but the focus is definitely on the story. The game's art style is absolutely gorgeous, inspired by the much-loved Studio Ghibli movies, and serves the narrative in a very effective and impactful way. The major update will add a few things, but there are a couple of stand-out features. One is the expansion of the game's language options. Right now, the game only has English voice acting with subtitle and interface options in French and German. When this new update rolls in … [Read more...] about Forgotton Anne Gets Language Update and Steam Sale
