RECOUNT! up to 535 games on Steam (update)

Started the push towards 1000 games on Steam.  Will be listing what I add and how I obtained the game (soon).

Space Hulk Ascensionlink– a 3D, digital, turn based, strategy game, which re-interprets the classic board game experience, and adds new RPG style mechanics, new weapons and missions, new enemy types, 3 playable chapters and loads of other new features to the single player experience.  Warhammer 40k inspired


Gods Will Be Watchinglink– a pixel graphics, minimalistic point and click game.  Work through puzzles and situations that should intrigue and engage the player, has high reviews and from what I have read and heard, it is good (worth playing through).  The theme of the story/adventure is “thriller”.


Fault-milestone onelink– fault is a series of Science Fantasy Cinematic Novels using a unique 3D Camera system for a visually immersive reading experience. Follow Selphine, the bubbly Princess and her sharp-witted Royal Guardian, Ritona, on their journey of a lifetime back to their homeland of Rughzenhaide.  Visual Novel, Anime, Female Protagonist, Overwhelmingly Positive reviews, trading cards

Renowned Explorers – International Societylink– a turn based strategy/adventure rogue-like rpg.  Explore worlds with a crew to seek out and find treasure and fight those you come across.


Steamworld Heist –link– from the developers of Steamworld Dig(although not a Dig part 2).  SWDig is a mining adventure game, a Metroidvanian influenced game.  In SWHeist you command a crew of steam driven pirates in a series of epic tactical shootouts. Inspired by classics like XCOM and Worms, SteamWorld Heist is turn-based strategy with a twist: You manually aim the guns of your robots, allowing for insane skill shots and bullet-bouncing action. Extremely High Overall reviews.  81 Metacritic

WASTEDlink– Kill, drink, and kill some more in WASTED, a roguelike post-apocalyptic pub crawler set in a lawless wasteland that lives and dies by the rules “Get wasted, or get wasted trying.”

Dota 2 – The International 2016

This year’s crème de la crème of gaming tournaments, Dota 2’s The International 2016, is slated to run from Monday August 8th through Saturday August 13th at Seattle’s KeyArena.  The prize pool for the The International is funded primarily through the sales of the accompanying International Compendium; this year’s International Compendium was released Monday May 16th as part of the International Battle Pass.  This new International Battle Pass brings the old features of the International Compendium, such as making predictions and player profiles, and combines it with a series of quests, tasks and achievements to be completed, by the Battle Pass owner, typically in full ranked and unranked matches.  Basically, there is stuff you can do to get items.
*Largest Overall Prize Pools in eSports*

Dota 2 Predictions

The Manila Major is going on now and would be a great indicator of hero trends for making predictions for the Compendium.  The last major was The Shanghai Major, although it was the patch before this most recent large update, some information can be gleaned from it as well.  The Shanghai Major had a Battle Pass available — it is very similar to the International Battle Pass.

Some links for use in making predictions:
