As the Midweek Madness, it's Deus Ex 1 and 2. (Again!) Here's the front page summary:

http://store.steampowered.com/sub/296/

Happy 10th Birthday, Deus Ex
"June 22nd marks the 10-year birthday of the hit Deus Ex. In celebration, Both Deus Ex titles are on sale for 75% off for just 24 hours."
"Offer ends 3pm Pacific time on June 23rd."

Deus Ex: Game of the Year Edition ($2.49, usually $9.99) [Metacritic: 90]
Deus Ex: Invisible War ($2.49, usually $9.99) [Metacritic: 80]
Both Deus Ex 1 and 2 ($4.98, usually $19.98)


I bought Deus Ex: GOTY when Steam offered it for $2.50 back in April. With the sale back, I'm wondering if I should grab Invisible War for the same price.

Sadly, the window is shorter than usual, ending on the 23rd instead of sometime Thursday or Friday.

UPDATE: DukeEdwardI has some good mod recommendations, which he shared with CAGer's during the last Deus Ex sale:

[Recommended Mods:]
New Vision Mod
Shifter Mod
The Nameless Mod

You'll need this:

Enhanced OpenGL Renderer

And keep in mind that with all mod-capable games, it takes a while to learn the process (it does with Oblivion/Fallout 3 anyway). These are the guides that I've bookmarked:

Great game, great prices. DX1 is an absolute stone cold classic. DX:IW doesn't hold a candle to the first but it's not terrible either. Easily worth $2.49 though.

"$2.49 each, $4.98 for both"

Well, at least some people are still good at math. Funny that it's even mentioned that way when it's the same as buying them separately...

Did the same thing as the OP. Picked up the first during the last sale and don't know if I should get Invisible War or not. Whatever.

Be sure to check out the mods for the first Deus Ex! These are some that caught my eye in the last Deus Ex for $2.50 deal thread:

New Vision Mod
Shifter Mod
The Nameless Mod

You'll need this:

Enhanced OpenGL Renderer

And keep in mind that with all mod-capable games, it takes a while to learn the process (it does with Oblivion/Fallout 3 anyway). These are the guides that I've bookmarked:

Hope this is helpful to people new Deus Ex like me.

I loved Invisible War. It is short and a bit more focused than the first. I've played it multiple times.

yes you should get it.

Aw, man! I paid $5.00 for the collection on April 20. If I had waited just two months, I could have saved two cents!

Yeah sucks to be you man, I'm enjoying having the games for a measly $2.49 a piece. Yeah, that's right.

I wish I had the time to work on my backlog. Perhaps these prices will surface again during the Holiday Sale - Maybe by then, I'll have beaten the original.

By the way, D. Ed I, I added your recommendations to the first post; They were helpful the last time around, so it's definitely good info to have at the top of the page.

I've been trying to save money. On the other hand, it's $4.98, and I regretted missing the last sale. Dang!

Thanks for the heads up, I never remember to check the Steam store unless CAG tells me to. Picked up both in anticipation of part 3 later this year.

This has probably been on sale more times than any other 3rd party Steam game.

Is this the lowest DX has been on Steam? Also DX is the best game ever made.

Definitely gonna grab this... I've been itching to replay the first Deus Ex since the new one was announced. Probably gonna grab Deus Ex: IW as well. Had it for my Xbox, but I might actually enjoy it more on the PC.

The first game blew my freaking mind back in the day but I remember not being able to play the second one because it ran like shit on my computer so I bought both. Definitely going to play them both before the new one is out.

Considering all the good things I've heard about Deus Ex, I think I'll jump on this. I honestly won't get to them for awhile with the insane backlog I have at the moment, but it's worth $5 to add these to my collection. Thanks OP.

Dammit, I don't have time for all these awesome games. But you can't say no to DX 1&2 for $5, especially since I've never played them.

If I didn't already own them both on Steam (and multiple copies of each on disc), I would buy the pack in a heartbeat. If you like video games, and have a functioning brain cell, you will too. Also, check out http://kentie.net/article/dxguide/ for some useful utilities and mods, including widescreen support and a nice DirectX 10 renderer. Works like a charm. BUY IT.
