^Salt and Sanctuary, if you don't mind 2D games.

ELEX is fun. There's the first Dark Souls. The Darksiders games are decent. If you don't mind Japanese jrpgs, the Ys series is fun.

Polished combat and animations usually come from Japan, and tbh there's nothing quite like Dragon's Dogma. Haven't played it myself, but you might enjoy Monster Hunter, people say it has deep combat with good variety, and weapon movesets do look nice.

If you're willing to lower your bar a little bit, Hellpoint might be worth a buy:

EDIT: just to mention that you can find it for 2 bucks on sites like Eneba

It is actually quite hard to spot these because the titles that are actually on the Steam store are better parodies of games than the ones Valve have come up with.
See exhibit a:

It's painful to buy games for dollars and not rubles, but you can't buy anything with Russian addresses and cards. For instance, I wanted to buy Knights of the Chalice 2, but it costs 45 USD rather than 15 USD in rubles. I think I'm back to piracy for now. Probably for the best.

Tempted to get Mechanicus. There's also that Mordheim game on my wishlist, don't even remember putting it there. Checked the Codex thread and opinions seeemed to be mixed. Then there's Glaudius but there's too many DLCs man, too expensive.
Mordheim is alright but very formulaic. Unmodded the AI will always bring a mirror of your own team and the story missions can be a chore.

The Risen games are quite cheap. I recently played and enjoyed Risen 1 so might pick up the sequels.

Are any of the DLCs worth getting? Meaning are there any that add actual, balanced and well-integrated content? It seems some of them are just shitty items which I assume are automatically placed in your characters inventory at the start of the game, which is something I can't stand.

Risen 2 is great, but DLCs are worthless junk.

Yesterday, the game couldn't be found at all. My guess is heavy load on Steam servers. Found it a couple of minutes ago.

Anyone else find it really annoying that you can't just add multiple items from your wishlist to your cart in one go?

Anyway, here's what I got for like 30 bucks:








+ Dungeon Rats ('cause I can't embed more than 5 pieces of media)

Thinking really hard about getting this, but I don't know. It's not -75%. I could almost buy a 1L carton of soup with that. Help, is it any good, Modron?

I just use khazakh loophole on qiwi, add tenge to my wallet and it auto converts to rubli. Now region locked game pages on steam is a different story, but devs and publishers who practice this kind of punishment deserve their games to be pirated.

The worst thing about Steam Sales now is that there are exactly zero surprises. The sales you see on day one are the ones you'll see at the end. And they're all shit.

It's a little over an hour long love letter to early King's Quest games, I wouldn't say it's particularly great but it has some charm. It's definitely old school in its design sensibilities as it's a walk all over creation to find an item to use on the other side of the map kind of affair at times. Granted said map isn't huge. At 79 cents I don't think you'll be too upset if it's not your cup of tea.

Praey for the Gods is a bit more actiony take on Shadow of the Colossus so it might scratch that Dragon's Dogma itch somewhat. As to the weird spelling as they got hit by Zenimax's lawyers early in their Early Access.
