Steam Made Me It’s Bitch

Dear Diary,

As many of you know, Steam is having a Summer sale. I’ve posted about it. Complained about it. Checked it out about twice a day since it started. And as a lot of you know, I’m also a hardcore gamer. Usually these two things would be a deadly combination, but my willpower is strong, so for a while, I was doing OK. I wasn’t spending any money, repeating the mantra that the thousands of games I currently have spread across roughly a dozen systems was enough.

Then Steam sent me an email telling me that almost everything on my Wish List was on sale. 😭

To make a long story short, here’s the damage that was done:


Icewind Dale: Enhanced Edition – $3.99

Baldur’s Gate: Enhanced Edition – $4.99

Harvester – $1.49

Leisure Suit Larry – Magna Cum Laude Uncut and Uncensored – $2.99

The Chosen RPG – $0.49

Sakura Angels – $2.99

Sakura Spirit – $2.49

If My Heart Had Wings – $3.74

Baldur’s Gate 2 Enhanced Edition Steam Store and Retail Key – $4.99

Arcanum – $3.89

Planescape: Torment: Enhanced Edition – $4.99

Dark Elf – $1.35

The Heiress – $1.35

Killing Time – $0.50

Mariko: Hot Nightlife – $0.47

What is love? – $0.71

Yuko: tragic love story – $0.71

Cheerleader: reverse side of life – $0.47

Woodstock 1969 – $0.47

X-ray hospital – $1.19

TOTAL: $44.26


I’m of two minds of this. The first: those are some fantastic fucking prices yo! 😳 The second, of course, is that I really didn’t need all those motherfucking games. I ended up justifying it by telling myself that it’s an early birthday present. Of course, my birthday is a little under two months away (August 23) but still. I feel better about it. And there is absolutely nothing else on Steam I want (my Wish List is empty) so I’m content.

Now I just need to write my ass off to make up for the splurge. So go buy more motherfucking books! Or join Patreon! Anything! 😅

Fuck it. I rarely splurge, especially on myself, so every once in a while is OK, right? Right?!

Until tomorrow, my loves…

    Maybe I will sludge on #Hashtag soon cause I’m already a VIP patreon and own almost ever one of your books

      😅 Yeah, you’re pretty amazing. And thank you so much for supporting me. I was just joking about ramping up purchases though – whenever I receive money from royalties/Patreon/Hashtag I save it for author expenses. I never use it for stupid shit. That’s what my paycheck is for. 😝
