Welcome to this years 'What are you trying to win lately' thread! The rules are the same as Last year:
Post the name of the game(s) you've been entering the most giveaways for recently, but have been unable to win.
Then, if someone with a spare key for it is feeling generous, you might just get a nice little Christmas present :)
EDIT: Please only list the games you're trying to win in a single post, as otherwise it may look like you've been ignored even when you've been gifted something already. Don't be greedy.
That's it folks, time to close the thread! Was great seeing the turnout this year, especially from people willing to give to others. :)
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!

Skullgirls 2nd Encore,Doom II,Dishonored 2 and Risk of Rain 2
Tried so many time but there is no hope at all
This comment was deleted 2 months ago.
Skullgirls 2nd Encore is literally the only one in your list that's been bundled, and it's been bundled 16 times...
But everytime i enter gw i never won its one of most gw i tried to win
lol and someone gifted me skullgirls on steam forums 3 years ago
Finally i won gw for skullgirls 2nd encore XD
Grats on that one.
I read Dishonored 2 will be given away by Prime to members.
for epic i think not for steam
Personally, I've been trying to win Dirt 5, racing games attract me and I've played it a bit on Game Pass, enough to consider it fun despite the reviews. Runner uppers would be Deathloop and Bioshock Collection. Deathloop looks to have a interesting story and Bioshock Collection I had my eyes this sale, but got distracted with other titles like AC Origins which I ended up buying.
Glad you like the game.
beware bioshock now comes with 2k's predatory launcher
you can easily bypass it though
The games I'm currently looking for:
Sent you a message on Steam :)
Thank you kind stranger for WARSAW! Have a great holiday season =)
Sent you an invite for Chroma Squad and Danger Scavenger.
That's awesome, thank you so much for the generosity! Just accepted the invite :)
I've been trying to win (and GroupBuy for that matter) quite a bunch of games from the JingleJam, that rank high on my wishlist, the toppest being
Poe and Munroe,
Lucifer Within Us.
Friend invite sent on Steam ;)
An angel just passed by.
God bless you, man. You just made someone happy (me). ♥♥♥
Incredible. My dearest thanks go to CowofDarkness for sending Lucifer Within Us ♥♥♥
You are awesome, mate.
I’ve been trying for:
Last day of june
I have no idea how to line in letters, but I did get Turnip Boy Commit tax evasion from Jigga :)
Steam friend invite sent ;)
Thanks a lot for Turnip Boy commit tax evasion :D
Added you for Deponia Doomsday. Send me a Hello once you add me.
I did. Thanks :)
Guacamelee 2, Katamari Damacy, Lost Ember and Abzu get me super excited when I see a giveaway for them :D Thank you so much to Mayanaise for Tanuki Sunset! ♡
added you on Steam.
Thank you so much! :D
Crusader Kings 3 and Kingdoms of Amalur: Re-Reckoning
For me it's Hell Let Loose but multiplayer part doesn't work on Linux yet (thanks to not updated EAC), on the other hand price might get increased because of the regional price updates. The devs said they had no plan for Linux and I deleted it from my wishlist. I don't know their current roadmap but I know I won't be able to play it today. So best I can do is write a ProtonDB report. If I knew I can play it, I would buy it though. :)
For me CHUCHEL, been trying to get it via trading as well, but no luck.
Added on Steam.
Thank you so much!
Find it hard to check but if I see my 'joined' page I see a lot of 'Nobodies: Murder Cleaner' so guess that one ^^ (wait, is this game bundled or not? I don't see any on the Steam page...)
I am very picky with what I join so often I see 1 to even 0 giveaways so that makes it easier to see what I joined in the last few month :P
How about you? You didn't write any game yourself!
Nobodies: Murder Cleaner was in the Fanatical Savior bundle. I have a key for it. Sent you an invite on Steam :)
Oh wow, you are so nice!! Thank you!
I'm jealous, but it went between two of my bluehearts, so all's good.
I do hope you also get lucky with a game you really wanted ^^
Industria and Roboquest lately
Superhot:MindCOntrolDelete Received from FilthySouls (thank you!)
HOT WHEELS UNLEASHED™
Thanks for reading
Added for Superhot: mind control delete, just message me when you're online.

Well, I'm going to aim very high, but right now every time Deep Rock Galactic pops up in a GA I am reserving all the points I have to try and get it. Looks really interesting, thought about trying it for some time
Fun with company. Community is great but co-op games like these are always more fun with friends. Have been playing it recently a lot and still having fun with it.
A lot of really cute games being given away lately that have been eating up my points thanks to this years Jingle Jam, but for me it's gotta be 'If Found' (Thank you Shelia!!), 'Aviary Attorney' and 'Turnip Boy Commits Tax Evasion' (Thank you soooo much Oppenh4imer!). I think I've entered about ~350 giveaways between these 3 games alone and they continue to evade me to this day each and every time.
Edit: Oh and how could I have forgotten 'Superhot: Mind Control Delete' with 300 giveaways entered!😭I've got the original SUPERHOT from the Stand with Ukraine bundle and I've really loved it, which surprised me quite a bit since I'm horrendous at shooter games! (ended up buying it myself)
Currently my points mostly go to Paradise Lost and The Turing Test giveaways.
Granted, they're not wishlisted games, but I think I'd like to give them a try.
Friend invite sent :)
Thanks a lot for Paradise Lost! :D
Shadow Tactics: Aiko's Choice: since I loved the base game and the Commandos series.
Aliens VS Predator Collection & Aliens: Colonial Marines Collection: simply because I love the Alien franchise.
Arx Fatalis: because I love Dishonored, Prey, Death Loop and there seem to be some giveaways for them recently. Don't know where they come from but I don't mind :D
Edit: Forgot about RAD been entering for in for two years it seems. The only Double Fine game missing from my collection, I probably should try to get it the next time it gets bundled again :D
Hi, I recommend to snipe for Arx Fatalis on gog, because on steam is game broken.
Hmm, that's interesting I'm going to look into that thanks for letting me know. Thought I'd probably still try to get it on Steam because that where I have the rest of their games, unless the game is completely unfixable on Steam.
Recommended solution for steam version is download Arx liberatis and play that instead. Steam doesn't register game then and it acts as non steam game. No playtime, no starting from steam.
The only thing I could find is that there's a problem with "rune recognition"? I don't know how much of an issue that is, it doesn't seem to be mentioned often though, so I'm guessing the game is still playable? Wouldn't really want to download that mod though since in general people add more in mods than I like (I prefer the vanilla experience as much as possible).
I had problem with textures as it left just blank parts missing colors, for example I missed hp and mana bar right on start. It can be probably played, but for me it was ruining experience way much.
Still good to know appreciate it ;) Missing textures can surely be annoying. Did you play it (or the mod)? Or did you end up abandoning it? If you did play it I'd appreciate your thoughts on the game.
Sent you an invite for Shadow Tactics: Aiko's Choice.
Thanks again for your generosity.
You're welcome, have fun with it! :)
Oh, I just created a GA for Aliens VS Predator Collection
But I also happen to have a second key I had marked in the past as being for AvP. I just couldn't figure out which other bundle I picked it up from, which is why I didn't add it to the GA. And since you mentioned AvP, you may as well try this second key, with some chance that it is for AvP.
I added you on Steam. Send me a Hello once you add me, and I'll send you this key.
As far as I remember it was only ever bundled once a few months ago. Perhaps you bought two bundles or traded for it? Regardless let me thank you once more for the amazing gift :)
The key I put in the GA, that one was from a humble bundle. And I am certain that I purchased it only once. And the only other bundle with it, isthereanydeal said was a SEGA one on a SEGA site, and I am sure that I didn't get it from there. Nor did I trade for it. So no clue where I did pick it up many moons ago. In any case, nice that it activated AvP for you. :)
This is a lovely sight. Just when I start feeling like the community isn't quite the same anymore, this reminds me how great it can be. Thank you for doing this and to anyone taking part in it :)
Ahh, so true!
My Time At Portia and Pikuniku :|
thanks to all <3
Happy holidays everyone!
My Time at Portia is a FANTASTIC game. Good luck.
My Time at Portia is a good game, but becomes somewhat grindy at some point. I was able to play for 50 hours. Got bored with grind afterwards.
Mechanics are solid but it is a grind heavy game.
Literal grind :)
Some may call it honest work. :D
I'm enjoying it so far anyway.
Don't get me wrong, I enjoyed the game a lot. Grind is kinda a core gameplay element in Portia, hence calling it honest work. People tend to criticize grind mechanics in games but what they mean is boring grind. Grind itself isn't bad, in my opinion.
yeah, it is a life sim after all XD
Ouch... I should have read this thread earlier. I made a My Time At Portia giveaway this morning, I would have gladly given it to you.
thanks for the giveaways anyway :)
Added for Pikuniku, just message me when you're online.
Wow, thank you very much!
Added you on Steam for My Time At Portia :)
Thanks!!! Merry Christmas!
Going for really any Lego games rn. I have an urge to play a ton of them lol
Tohu – big thanks, NazaSekh :)
Toem – I've just won it :O
Pillars of Eternity II
Deathloop – thank you, Secret Santa :O
I've played Forager during Game Pass subscription a while ago and I loved it. But honestly I haven't played a game in a month or two. I have a few games I'd like to play hell out of during Christmas time. Some of them bought last Christmas 😂 So...
But I have some leftovers I was too lazy to create a giveaway for – maybe it's a good opportunity to finally find them a new home.
Sending a friend invite for Tohu. :)
Wow, didn't expect it at all :)
That's even better then. :D
It's an old key, but it should still be working.
thank you for continuing this newly founded tradition 🥳
Pretty much frequented:
These are fewer and farther inbetween, but i'm trying to get into every single entry:
I have Fury Unleashed for you, Zud. Sending a friend invite!
Thank you in advance! Received. Thanks again.
Added you for Chroma Squad
Received, thank you!
Sent you a friend request
Another one received, thank you!
Didn't expect to have a game, and there's 3, that's alot. Thank you, you lovely people :)
Edit: I'd like to thank the random person (CowOfDarkness) who gifted me a game even though I hadn't mentioned any games that I had been trying to win. SG still surprises me sometimes with the rare no-strings-attached gifters here. xx.
p.s. I also really enjoyed the game! (Tanuki Sunset)
ok, I'm going to secretly mention Clouzy Chicken Police - Paint it RED! I'm kicking myself, cos I didn't buy the monthly!
Thank you to everyone who gifted me games. And thanks to jiggakills for this awesome thread where we can do some nice gifting to one another. Thanks xx
Haha! I did that last year with a random person from the thread who had Hollow Knight on her Steam wishlist. She didn't ask for that one. I did it because she was better than many of us, playing all her wins. =) I totally was stalking through people's profiles to find someone to give it to. Haha!
It just feels good to do something nice. Being festive. XD
Best gifts are the ones that just keep giving. :)
Secretly adding you...
Secret thanks for Clouzy!
Hello ma'am, did you call the police?
Added you on Steam :)
City Climber and Chatventures for me :(
Edit: huge thnx to CowOfDarkness for City Climber <3
oh yeah, I already forgot that thread, got it from trade, ty for offering anyway <3
Monster Train and Slay the Spire
Sent you an invite for Monster Train.
Thank you again :D
