Steam Spring Cleaning
« on: May 27, 2018, 03:50:11 PM »
It looks like Valve realizes how many Steam users have massive backlogs.  This holiday weekend is all about spring cleaning!

I've started working on some of these... Steam came up with a cool idea

Wow, good job Valve. It still hasn't pushed me to play more games (that's more because I'm busy with life) but I love the idea.

I played quite a few games that I had not touched.  Some of those games gave me the impression of, "Oh, yeah, I should play through more of this when I get a chance."  Several left me with the impression of, "No wonder I had not bothered to install this before."

I have many games that I picked up in those Steam sale packages where I bought a package to get one or two games cheap, but ended up with several games being added to my library.

I didn't have a chance to do this... I Wish I did.  Steam did come up with a great idea.

@targetrasp @Grindspine @Kinikko - How did you end up with this - complete a lot of them?

I hope they bring this back.  And yeah...I have quite a few games where I thought the same as you Grindspine.  I found those on my quest to play every game in my library for 5 minutes.  I bought a lot of old Novalogic games... they were fun but have aged quite bit... and they just don't have the same magic anymore.  It sucks saying that...

idk... If we haven't heard anything about it yet, I doubt it.   It would be cool if they did.

@Grindspine @Kinikko --> Have you heard anything on this for 2019?

We need the gaming backlog tracker  ???

Last year it was the last week of May.  If they do it this year, I would think it would be similar timing.

@targetrasp lol... shhhhhhhhh.   The dream is real and alive.

@Grindspine that would be cool if they did it this year.  I didn't participate last year... and I cannot tell you the last time I logged into steam right now.  So... it's due

I should see what it's recommending for me. A bunch of my friends from back home started up Sunday game nights, so we've been playing a weird variety of things.

When Renee has not been hogging my main gaming PC playing Bloodstained: Ritual of the Night, I revisited a handful of games.

Star Wars: Republic Commando still seems like such an awesome game, but some of those fights on Genosis just kill my team too much.

Portal is so classic and so good.  I just revisited the last test, the escape, and the cake!

I played a few rounds of Team Fortress 2 and Half-Life 2: Deathmatch (source and regular).

I also put about two hours into Ori and the Blind Forest and about forty minutes to Halo: Spartan Strike.

Outside of the Spring Cleaning event, I played a few hours of Final Fantasy XIII-2 on the PS3.  I also did a bit in Skyrim Special Edition on Steam just to break in the EVGA RTX2060 KO graphics card that I installed a few weeks ago.

@trkorecky  - It would be cool to get more people gaming from here.  We had some decent gaming rounds going for a bit with @targetrasp @Jack @mastermario @Grindspine and @SpartanEvolved   ...mostly with Diablo 3, Overwatch, and a few others.   There are some games I'd love to get into again.  It's been a long time... it has also been awhile since I've been on Steam.

@Grindspine what about Portal 2?   It would be fun to try to co-op some of that again.  We haven't done that since the PS3 days... and we had Penn Station.  Hell... that had to have been 8 years ago now.   Stupid time needs to stop it.  Did Renee stop hogging the PC? lol.
