Yes, for $59.99!

I don't understand why digital downloads are priced higher than their retail boxed counterparts. The former don't have all the expenses--packaging, paper documentation printing, distributing physical copies, etc.--that the latter do, so I figured the cost should be much less, not more.

But I read somewhere that Steam takes 30%, so I suppose the price is increased accordingly.

Digital downloads are usually cheaper. Wasteland 2 must be available via download only, thus the high price.

Whatever the price, I'm looking forward to the game.

I'm thinking of getting the original. Six bucks, ought to be a nice trip back to old school computer gaming.

What I'm really looking forward to is Fallout 4.

Speaking of RPG's, this is going to be a good year.

Here is a list of some I'm excited about:

The Witcher 3
Dragon Age Inquisition
Pillars of Eternity
Torment: Tides of Numenora

Witcher 3 is what I'm looking forward to. The first one was very good, especially the enhanced edition. The second one wasn't as good in my opinion.

I'm eager for Fallout 4 as well.

I agree-it tried, but pretty graphics just couldn't make up for what I thought was a very clumsy quest system.

I love looking at an up and coming game and realizing I backed it on Kickstarter way back when. A little like my steam page filled with games I've never heard of or played.
