There seems to be a SE sale like every month... every month I'm reminded that this is more of an Eidos sale too.

If it's any consolation, your first post is better than the first post in the other topic. Mooby should copy your first post and give you credit for the formatting job that you did.

I'm thinking about getting the Hitman games. Anybody know if they support a controller? Played through them originally on the Xbox. Thanks in advance.

I fail at thread presentation. ;) Funny enough I was looking for a 'master' Gamer's Gate deal thread and was surprised I couldn't find one so good on Slightly to start one. I hereby declare this the thread. Poof!

Ah, Final Fantasy XI... about $150~200 worth of DLC for $5. Curse my PS2, who knew it would be so cheap on PC. Where does the time go.

Victory is not about winning battles, its about how long it takes for the person beating you to give up.

A quick glance at the Hitman forums shows the support is very limited and requires messing with config files. You'd be better off using a third party program.

I was also surprised that there wasn't really anything, but thank you. I will try my best not to abuse this glorious new power.

As a former EverQuest player, I feel your pain. Granted, I didn't buy all of the 173 expansions, but it wasn't cheap to stay current. Now there's a free to play model and all-in-one packs cost minimal.

After all is said and done, i couldn't recommend Final Fantasy XI more. Yes its Pay to Play and i would recommend a group of people to take the plunge with you. Its not as hard or grindful as it used to be.

Also all of those Deus Ex's are a steal, Just Cause not a bad sandbox game either.

They should have thrown Project Snowblind in the Deus Ex Bundle. First, it is essentially a Deus Ex sequel in spirit. Second, hardly anyone will buy it on it's own so why not?

Tempted to pick up all the Tomb Raider games but I'm not sure if I want them on PC or PS3. Hitman's a bummer because there's no Hitman Contracts, so I may buy the trilogy box. The Deus Ex Bundle is the most tempting of all but it's actually been $5.50 cheaper before and it would just hit my backlog anyway.

I'm getting Guardian of Light and Just Cause 2 Complete for sure, though.

Can someone explain why there's a small amount added to the cost of the game? ;)

I notice that in my cart, it's like 5%.

You, sir, are correct. By about 25 cents. Weird.

You earn 5% of your purchase back in credit, called blue coins. That's not an extra charge. :)

5 bucks for all of FFXI is insane!!!! There's literally thousands of hours worth of content there, good and fun content at that. Definitely the best MMO I ever played and one of the best games I ever played period. Comes with 30 days free too. If you like old school FF games you owe it to yourself to check it out for 5 bucks.

I'm probably gonna reactivate my account next month for the 10th anniversary. Even though I quit back in 2009 I still reactivate my account a few months a year during the summer when there's nothing to play.

OK thanks but why is the price of Just Cause $3.75 and when I look at the bottom of the page it says $4.08 using Rixty. WTH is that?

I was looking at Just Cause and JC2 both plain vanilla. How do you add DLC to JC2? Someone mentioned it cheaper that way? :bouncy:

Sorry for the late update, guys. My video card fan on my main PC decided it wanted to stop spinning. :drool:

Rixty is one of their payment methods they use if you can't use PayPal or the other method. It has a bit of a surcharge for some reason. I don't know, I just use PayPal.

The price difference is about 25 cents. I just got the Complete Edition anyway because it organizes it better in your Games section then. It's up to you. Either way, they are all Steamworks so you are given serial codes that you activate in Steam for each DLC.

Very strange. I've never had anything but good experience with their customer service. Maybe try contacting them and asking what's up, like another poster suggested.

I'm not sure that they have true every day deals. I think that these are basically featured extra good deals of the day as part of a longer sale, in this case the ubisoft one.

Steam does similar things where they pick a publisher and do a 4 day or so long sale with everything being on sale from that publisher at say 50% but then there's a deal of the day within that sale that goes even cheaper each day.

It's not a GG deal, but it compliments the 1C Complete Pack they had on sale a few weeks ago. You can pick up Penumbra Collection and Dawn of Magic 2 for $5 total on Amazon this week.
