There’s a bit of a curiosity coming up on Steam tonight, and it’s available for one day only!

At around 6pm tonight there’ll be a single level of a cancelled reboot of the Golden Axe series going live, wittily called ‘Golden Axed’ 😆

It’s probably rubbish but it’ll be an interesting rarity to have in your Steam library...

I suspect if that level gets enough downloads, Sega would consider putting the project back into development. Sneaky way to gauge interest in the project!

Two Hundred and seventy three whole MB..... its been a while since I've seen a game so small!

The Sega Mega Drive Classics collection is on Steam sale, 58 games for £5.85, I may have just bought it so I can play Golden Axe again 😁👍

There’s some belters in there! Altered Beast, Streets of Rage, ToeJam and Earl, Kid Chameleon... and the criminally underrated Ristar.

I saw it came out in 1989, I started gaming on an Atari 2600 Jr and the Game Boy in 1990 at the age of 5.

I guess I'm going to have to go dig out a Mega Drive emulator and Golden Axe rom at some point to see for myself!

See my above post. If you don’t want the lot, you can get Golden Axe on it’s own for 79p 😁

I have more than 2000 games in my Steam library. It didn't get that way by buying single games when there's collections on offer. I once bought the Eidos collection - 50-odd games for £50 - I only wanted the original Tomb Raider games, but ended up with the Thief games, Legacy of Kain games and so so much more! :LOL:

Amazing! Was Soul Reaver part of that collection? I ruddy loved that game.

Yep - was an incredible deal. Square Enix seemed to have pulled that collection now though. Soul Reaver worked well on Windows 7 when I bought the collection, but seemingly doesn't work on Windows 10.

That’s a shame. Still some cracking games in there. I used to love Thief, wonder how well that’s held up over time. I played that terrible reboot a couple of years ago and was sick in my mouth 🤢

Right.... I know I'm a complete idiot for this one but I thought I would share.

Aaaaaageeesssss ago when HL Alyx was released I noticed that it was in my Steam Library. I went onto the page to see the reviews etc and noticed that it was overwhelmingly positive...... but £50 or so. I forgot about it.

Today I had a look at my library and noticed tonnes of dedicated server stuff. I had no idea what this was until I noticed that the filters were different so I reset them. This highlighted the Half Life Alyx to me again so I searched for a reason for it being in my library.

It's free to Index users and has been since release. I've been holding off buying it for the price coming down only to find the reason it's in my library is that I actually have it. I presumed it was some sort of free demo or pre-installation thing.

What a spanner!

Sounds like an amazing deal - mistake the full game for a demo! :LOL:
