I recently started a backlog clean-up. Nothing too aggressive, I just started playing titles I'd never touched (starting with shortest to beat) and if they grabbed me fine. If they didn't, I threw them in an Archived category.

I actually wound up finishing 3-4 games in the last week, and trying/archiving 5 or 6 more. Slow but steady progress.

I'm going to start cutting back on the bundles as well, as that is where the vast majority of my library bloat has come from.

Considering ATS DLC,
I don't think you'll be disappointed. The quality of the maps is really ramping up.

I picked up the DLC I didn't have for ATS a couple of weeks ago, forgetting that the Summer Sale was upcoming :roll:. Washington is very pretty and there are really nice touches there.

I picked up Megaquarium at 35% off. I'd gotten the previous game, Big Pharma, from this developer and thought it was pretty good, so when Megaquarium was announced I started following the newsfeed. When it was released out of Early Access I still waited, but the reviews have been pretty good and the developer has been very active in taking feedback from the community and making timely updates. And Steam Workshop support is in beta, so I took the leap.

This is a tycoon game, but on the light side. Nothing too heavy duty, not really even any spreadsheets other than a simple profit/loss chart. You build tanks and supply the associated support equipment, hire staff, put in fish and then with the Science, Prestige and Ecology points you earn you can unlock more fish, equipment, decorations, that sort of thing.

I'm going to start a thread over on the video games forum for those who might be interested.

Ah, thanks. Was racking my brain to try and figure out that acronym given the context, and was coming up completely empty.

I came out of the Steam sale spending more money than I usually spend, but on only two games - Divinity Original Sin 1 & 2. I'm greatly enjoying playing through 1 though, so I don't feel bad. Usually I just buy the games and never play them. :D
