Street Fighter V - Champion Edition - Uzzy
Four years after launch, the now somehow venerable fighter is starting to show it's age, so it's no surprise that the complete version of the game is now coming out. Featuring all the characters and costumes* and stages, SFV now also has actually functioning netplay thanks to a couple of modders in a cave with a box of scraps. Might even organise some lobbies this month.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! - bmdubya
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is the third game in the Cook, Serve, Delicious! series that burst onto the indie game scene back in 2013. While the second game introduced some new mechanics, this new game is vastly different from the previous two.
While there has been some what of a story in the previous two games through an email system, CSD3 will throw you into a full single player campaign. You'll manage a food truck in war torn American in 2042. While driving between different stops, you'll prep your food ahead of time to serve hungry customers waiting at your next stop. The game will still have the frantic cooking gameplay of the previous two games, but will have a larger focus on an actual campaign and story, including voice acting for the first time!
As always with this series, the food art is absolutely amazing in CSD3.
Hearts of Iron IV - La Résistance - Uzzy
The new DLC for Hearts of Iron IV focuses on a number of things, such as expanding on the role of the resistance movements during WW2, with brave souls fighting against the occupying forces anyway they can. Support them to strike at your enemy from below, or crush them from above through collaboration and oppression. There's also a rework for intelligence and encryption, with secret agents moving behind enemy lines to gather information, launch raids and cripple the enemies ability to fight. Unsurprisingly given the theme, this new DLC also includes a complete rework for the French national focus tree, better representing the fractious state of French politics before and during WW2, as well as opening up several alternative history paths (Legitimist, Orléanist or Bonapartist!). You can also declare ¡No pasarán! and fight in an improved Spanish Civil War, with enlarged focus trees for Republican and Nationalist Spain, as well as Portugal.
Just remember, though you die, La Résistance lives on!
Dead Cells: The Bad Seed - Uzzy
To quote a friend 'It's fucking more Dead Cells, ya ****'s.'
Kentucky Route Zero - ListeningGarden
If you were to condense Kentucky Route Zero's themes much like a blurb for a topic on a message board, the resulting effect would be as densely saturated as a humid summer evening. Despite time being almost non-linear to the Zero and surrounding countryside, its residents and their struggle with hostile and uncaring systems of their damaged society speaks volumes to us now - where once proud nations stand face to face with decisions that may cause untold harm that affects everyone in its wake. It does so through layers of surreal imagery and scenery that at once feel unfamiliar and carry an aura of déjà vu. We've been here before. Maybe not here, exactly, aboard a boat with a mechanical mammoth churning to life as its inner gears grind painfully against each other, but somewhere just like it with people similar to our companions who have joined us on our journey.
Borrowing from several text-based game interfaces, point and click adventure games, and various mediums like film, literature and theater, Kentucky Route Zero always brings a new way of experiencing the world and its characters across all five acts and interlude chapters. It even comes with its own fully modeled phones for you to dial a hotline with! Even still, it is a bit of a slow burn that is best appreciated by those who would rather traverse every inch of the back roads than take the direct route, for every moment hidden away offers yet more bewildering glances into this world that's not quite our own. At times it may feel like a horror game, but a ghost is just what happens when a person is gone but still taking up space. Who are we to be so afraid of what the past left behind?
Complete at least Act 1. Also check out the excellent OT for this game.
SaGa Scarlet Grace: Ambitions - Taborcarn
Can you fulfill the not-quite-intuitive set of tasks that will get the Volcano to erupt on any route? There's a hot reward in it for you, too!
- Notice a poster that is obnoxious or harmful to the thread? REPORT THEM.
- Do not solicit/trade/sell/beg for games in this thread.
- Do not spam post your game stats/games count or post damage lists from sales.
- NO ANIME/J- ROCK/POP.
- Maybe try not to drive posters away for sharing their thoughts on video games, alright? If you're not wanting to purchase a game for any reason, and someone discusses it in entirely unrelated terms, you don't necessarily have to tell them that you're not going to purchase it for that reason. I know that's something I could do better myself. That's not to say you can't discuss that reason, of course, you just don't have to everytime someone mentions a game in an unrelated context.

The SteamERA Community was founded on Discord on October 2017, a stranded bunch of SteamGAF who united together and embraced on what we thought was the end of times. However as more people joined we found hope and soon started to formulate and plan for the future. This thread would not be possible without the community we have on Discord and I encourage all of you to join if you have not.
