I can’t state enough how much I love Steam, and how they have really good sales. Last year, between the Winter and Christmas deals, I was able to bag more than twenty games (which I really wanted) for around 30€. I also am on Origins due to my love for the EA/Bioware games.
A friend got me a new copy of Final Fantasy VIII for my birthday last year, and I started playing it (I think this was my 3rd or 4th playthrough) and spent more than 120 hours without even completing everything (most of it, but some were buggy like the UFO or headaches like the Chocobo). I wanted to finish FFVIII before jumping into Dragon Age Inquisition, which I also got for my birthday (I try to wait for games until they are on sales with a decent discount, except Star Wars and Dragon Age franchises).
Sadly, my computer can’t take Dragon Age Inquisition, which makes me very sad as I was so excited for this game. A new desktop (I am a PC gamer all the way) isn’t in the cards before a couple of years at least. I start to think that Bioware games dislike me, because a few months ago, Star Wars: The Old Republic refused to reinstall (on the very computer it had played for more than a year and an half) and nothing I could do would change it. And the first Knights of the Old Republic went poof on me as well, even with a new version! Did I mention that this really turns my relationship with Bioware games into a love/hate one? At least, my Mass Effect games are still behaving. I am in the suicide mission in the second one but just need to be in the mood again to go back to it.
With Dragon Age Inquisition poofing on me, I went old school and picked Dungeon Siege, which I had never played. I am in the second chapter and having fun with it. So, I’m pretty happy with it. Just like Final Fantasy VIII, I’ll probably post a review of it once I have completed it.
