Steam winter sale, etc.

So, this year, I tried to be restrained - I had to, as my money was comparatively limited. Often, I try to make sure I have a decent budget for the big Steam sales, but this year, I was in no position to do so. Still, I did pick up a bunch of stuff (the list is long - but it doesn't add up to all that much; many tiddly things):

[Spoiler (click to open)]
Age of Empires II HD + The Forgotten Expansion £5.74
Avadon 2: The Corruption £5.24
Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons £3.59
Don't Starve £0.95
Guacamelee! Gold Edition £2.99
Rise of the Triad £2.39
Shelter £1.74
Trackmania Canyon £3.99
Trackmania Valley £3.99

Borderlands 2: Ultimate Vault Hunter Upgrade Pack 2 £1.99
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 1: Bloody Harvest £0.99
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 2: Wattle Gobbler £0.99
Borderlands 2: Headhunter 3: Mercenary Day £0.99
Civilization V: Scrambled Continents Map Pack £0.99
Civilization V: Scrambled Nations Map Pack £1.00
Dishonored: The Brigmore Witches £3.99
Mark of the Ninja: Special Edition DLC £0.79
Pinball FX2: Mx. Splosion Man Table £0.49
Pinball FX2: Star Wars: Balance of the Force Pack £1.74
Skyword Collapse: Nihon no Mura £0.67
Van Helsing: Arcane Mechanic £1.01
Van Helsing: Blue Blood £0.49
Van Helsing: Thaumaturge £1.01

... and also, not in the Steam sale:
Tales of Maj'Eyal Steam Launch Edition £4.49 (Launch offer - first Angband derivative on Steam)
Shadow Warrior $9.99 (Humble Store sale)

So, I was pleased with my restraint around Steam. Unfortunately, Winter Wolves (who makes cheesy romantic games, some visual novels, but most of them with life sim or rpg elements - if that intrigues, I'd suggest checking out the demos for Loren or Planet Stronghold (both rpgs with plenty of stats and turn-based combat) or Bionic Heart (visual novel with many endings... some positive, some negative)) also had their winter sale, and I couldn't resist picking up a bunch more of their games (I already owned Always Remember Me, Bionic Heart, Flower Shop: Summer in Fairbrook, Heileen, Heileen 2, Loren: the Amazon Princess + Castle of N'Mar expansion, Planet Stronghold, Spirited Heart and Vera Blanc: Full Moon since before):

Winter Wolves:
Bionic Heart 2 £6.50
Cinders £7.34
Heileen 3: New Horizons £6.50
Heileen 3: Sea Maidens £6.50
Vera Blanc: Ghost in the Castle £3.50

... so, once again, I'll have to be slightly careful when doing food shopping to make sure my money lasts until payday. Oh well, I'm getting used to that by now - been like that every month since coming back to Sweden. And I got lots of cool new stuff - hope I'll have the energy to play some of it. I'm hoping to get my economy more balanced towards the end of spring or so... will have paid back what I should to my parents, and most one-time larger costs dealt with. Then, I might finally be able to get that computer upgrade I'm wishing for.
