Steam Charts: Further Adventures In Firearms & Fantasy
Best-sellers for the first week of June
It's yer regular round-up of what shifted the most copies on Steam over the previous week. Last week, Total Warhammer was dark master of all it surveyed, but a bug-eyed old friend has displaced it after just one week...
1. Grand Theft Auto V
Rockstar's undying loot'n'sadism sim spent the first week of June discounted by a third (it's back up to full whack now, I'm afraid), and somehow the twelve people who didn't already own it were sufficient to push it back to number one. This was ahead of today's release of the Further Adventures In Finance and Felony DLC for GTA Online. I like the way the title suggests they're just going to keep on cranking that handle.
2. Total War: WARHAMMER
Last week's number one slips a place, but Sega have declared that it "broke franchise records" in its first week on sale so I doubt they're too grumpy. Expect a steady stream of DLC soon. Where them Skaven at?
3. Total War: WARHAMMER
The reason for the two seperate entries is that, up until mid-way through last week, buying Total Warhammer also nabbed you the Chaos Warriors DLC (as revieworised by Adam here). These days it's a separate £6 purchase however, and the number 3 entry here reflects sales of the parent game once the offer had expired. SO NOW YOU KNOW.
I still get the warm and fuzzies whenever DOOM is mentioned. I really must make time to go and punish myself in Nightmare mode.
5. Youtubers Life
Literally anything I might say about this will only make me sound like a frightened old man. Go read about Pip playing it instead.
56 Counter-Strike: Global Offensive
It puts a sentence about CSGO in the CMS or it gets the hose again.
7. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
8. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Blood and Wine
Discounts! (Also please see review here k thx.)
9. The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Game + Expansion Pass
10. Steam Controller
Valve's unlovely but hugely customisable controller was 30% off for much of last week in honour of its one-year anniversary. Valve recently put out a post detailing the many software updates and tweaks added since release, and it turned out that a whole load of people still wanted to find out if it really could do the mouse-meets-gamepad thing. I admit, I haven't used mine for quite some time so can't speak to whether the upgrades have done much - but there's a reason I haven't used mine for quite some time, which is that I wanted to fire the cheap-feeling, disconcertingly-buzzing oddity into the sun whenever I did.
