Wow, those look like some great games to buy for only $4.90... Too bad my laptop can't handle them :(

Thanks, great prices. I picked up the three Games for Windows games - Blacksite, Universe at War, and Shadowrun. They should work nicely with my X360 controller for Windows.

Blacksite isn't GFW. Probably works with the controller anyway, I ordered it as well, and the Movies. I just got Universe at War from Amazon for $10.

No, but "dirt cheap" shipping is less than $4 for up to 2 titles. Good luck finding a site selling $5 games with free shipping. They used to have cheaper shipping options for more games, but this way I can't go too crazy on these sales and try to stay to 2 or less.

Jade empire - definitely worth owning.
Universe at War is fun - but stupid that you have to use Microsoft Live to play online.
Quake 4
Prey
Unreal Anthology - includes 1, 2, and 2004 - all great alternatives if your setup can't handle III.

Those would be my recommendations if I didn't already own all of them =)

Jade Empire, Quake 4, Prey, Unreal Anthology definitely are worth $4.90, if any of y'all don't have those.
All of those are good ones.

Nice, $13 shipped for Blacksite and Universe at War. :)

Money comes and goes, but deals don't last forever ;)


If anime was mainstream, would it be as satisfying?

Lot of good games on there! The Movies is excellent, Jade Empire is really fun for those who enjoyed KOTOR and Mass Effect (same developer), and Prey is a pretty fun shooter. Good deals all around!

Wow, these are some really great deals! Can't remember the last time they had this many good games on sale at once.

The "catch" for me is I already own a lot of these (The Movies, Prey, Jade Empire, Quake 4)...but for these prices I'm picking up Unreal Anthology (just for Unreal 2-I thought the demo was fun, and I don't care about deathmatch games), and Myst 5. I've got Myst 3, but haven't played it yet. Don't have Myst 4 yet, but I know 5 got good reviews, and I loved Riven, at least back in the day.

A lot of these are tempting, but I'm just going to settle with the Unreal Anthology. I already have UT2004, but never played UT1 and 2, and don't have a copy of the original UT anymore, so $5 is a steal!
Selling both CoD: Black Ops Declassified and Resistance: Burning Skies for $40 shipped. Check my trade list or PM me!

Nice! I picked up The Movies, Space Quest Collection, and Jade Empire. I played The Movies a long time ago and liked it and decided to get it again. The Space Quest collection is something I've been eyeing for a while, as I never finished playing the last couple of SQ games back when they first came out. And Jade Empire is something I've been wanting to play for a while but never got around to. Good stuff!

Jade Empire is great and should run well on most pcs. I picked up a game a few weeks ago and the dirt cheap shipping got it to my house in 2 days (I live in northern California). I'm tempted to grab Universe at war.

Ugh, like I need more PC games (still have 98% of the ones I bought @ CC in February unopened) but I couldn't resist.

btw, dirt cheap shipping costs as much as Ground now? It did for my order. :\ So I went with Ground.

Ordered: Space Quest, Movies, Blacksite Area 51, and Jade Empire.
Would've bought Universe at War, but I already own it (for $12, argh)
Had to stop myself from buying more...

    Really, Really Cheap

  • CAGiversary!

Posted 04 July 2008 - 05:25 PM

It's not a bad price, but the games I wanted from the list, I've already bought for less than $4.90 with free shipping on eBay (guess that's just me bragging, eh?)

Spider-Man friend or Foe is a really fun (but short) game if you have a joypad, The Movies is a LOT of fun if you like the sims/sim city/theme park. PREY and Blacksite:area51 are both very nice shooters, and of course Jade Empire is a steal at that price.

All of the games are well worth the cash.

Blacksite isn't GFW.

I'm unsure why gogamer often shows non-GFW packaging, but I'm fairly certain the game is the same as the link above.

Unreal Anthology is an amazing deal. All those Unreal games are fully patched and on a single DVD. It also comes with a soundtrack CD.

No.

I almost bit, but asked myself am I buying these games because they are cheap or because I want to play them?

Same here. I still have way too many unopened games from the Circuit City sale.

Whaaaat?!? Most of these games are worth probably worth FULL price, and you guys are questioning $5?

Crud, I didn't even look. Actually I used Google Checkout, and I don't remember if I was even given an option. Oh well, the games came fine and plenty fast for me when I ordered last a couple of weeks ago.

Not sure why anyone would want to play with a gamepad though. Maybe if you had it on a TV and were sitting 10 feet away (maybe).

Traditional RTS games don't work on gamepads at all though IMO. I've tried the demos for every 360 one they've released...and they're just hideous IMO. Only console RTS I've played that works well is Pikimin, and that's because it was designed around the controller instead of shoe-horned in (and obviously the gameplay had to be really different). MAYBE if you massively slowed down the gameplay...
I prefer turn based stuff though anyway, and IMO it just works better on consoles.
