#12176138 PC Digital Sale - Newegg.com (Rockstar, Square-Enix, WB Games)

Posted by MysterD on 22 October 2014 - 02:03 AM

Stayed late to update again. Rockstar on sale!

 

We certainly do appreciate you staying up late and working late to update + get your NewEgg lists together for us. That's some dedication to your company (NewEgg) + to us CAG'ers, I must say. That's very cool. :D

 

Now about Rockstar Games on the PC - the things w/ them are this:

I think most of us CAG PC gamers here have seen plenty of Rockstar Games on sale. And likely, we already have most of them by now - except GTA5 PC, obviously. ;) Rockstar Games are always on sale everywhere - whether it's Steam, Amazon, Gamersgate, GameFly & now we can add NewEgg to the club. Whether some sites have them on sale at same time; some sites at different times one week after another have the same Rockstar deals (or close to it); and/or whatever else - Rockstar always seems to be on sale somewhere! And Rockstar doesn't really have enough games unfortunately on the PC, as well.

 

Granted, I don't know how much pull you have w/ your NewEgg bosses + with the publishers when trying to pitch some game deals for the consumer - but, I'd certainly love to see new trend-setting, barn-burning deals from you guys. I don't know about most CAG'ers, but my game-buying habits of late haven't been anywhere as interesting as it once was, in the last few previous years. NewEgg is a big name website for computer-stuff, for sure - and I'd love to see more reasons for me to buy more than just hardware here + there from you guys; and maybe a handful PC game downloads once in a while. Namely, I'd love to see on sale some PC games we ain't really seen brick down on sale a bit around here hit a nice sale.

 

EDIT:

LOL I may be a rep but I've been gaming since I was 2 years old. (ah 286 dos games and Atari).

 

My dad (who games with me still - big Console Diablo fan), my brother and I used to trade lives in Contra (when someone dies you pass).

I played the heck out of Contra + Super C on my NES, back in my NES days. Good times! :D

I also just remembered - I somewhere have a retail copy of the Castlevania + Contra Collection for the PC. 

 

EDIT 2:

On the topic of JRPGs my favorite game on this planet is Lunar the Silver Star on Sega CD (the remakes are ok but aren't as good as the original and the experience I had with it).

 

I remember being the moderator of the #Lunar channel on IRC when I was younger lol

One of the JRPG's I always wanted to play, but never did - since I never had a Sega CD.

To reiterate what Foxhack and MysterD said if you can get Deadly Premonition for cheap prepare to jump through hoops to get the game working it took me a couple of hours to get it to run by then I moved on to another game out of frustration.

Buying cheap should be the only way anyone deciding to play this should buy it...

 

EDIT:

...until its nasty technical issues get stomped-out officially or by a modder.

Hell, I'd even love to see someone take all the assets and port it to another engine or something.

DPFix.

 

http://blog.metaclas....com/?tag=dpfix

 

Though it took a full Windows reinstall for it to get to recognize my 360 pad. :p

Trust me - you'll need more than DPFix to fix this game.

 

Might wanna use a LAA Program to tag it to notice 4GB+ RAM, as well - to keep it from crashing on the regular every 20-40 minutes. As that kept me at least playing for a 1-3 hours or so.

 

I think there might be a memory-leak bug - but eventually, after playing for a time-period, framerates go from 60 FPS to eventually a crawl. Then, it'll just crash to desktop (CTD).

 

Even still - game's buggy as crap; and it could be running well...and it'll just CTD, out the blue.

So...like a trip and three-quarters?

Yes.

 

It's eccentric, bizarre, hilarious, ridiculous, weird, and surreal.

 

Gamers who wanted an open-world game meeting-up w/ Silent Hill, Resident Evil, Seven (movie), and any David Lynch film should make sure they give this game a chance when it's cheap.

 

Just, one thing: it can be a royal pain-in-the-ass to get it running half-way decent, since it's one of the worst PC ports ever put together. It might even be worst than Bully PC, on the technical side of things. If you can get those problems down to a minimum - you're in for a hell of a ride.

Finished-up not too long ago today that Deadly Premonition: Director's Cut (PC).

 

Hell of a game + a trip and a half and then some, I must say.

The only time I use Origin is to check if the free game they gave out was really added to my library. It's fine as a client but having those games in a separate space means I forget which ones I have and I'll never play them. Same with Desura

Usually, when I get a game from another service...

...The first thing I do is hop on Steam, add it as a Non-Steam game + filter it right into one of my Non-Steam Game List categories.

 

That way, I won't forget about it. :D

lol  um all coh2 has been cheaper on steam lol 

I think most of us these days check out Gamersgate for the inevitable glitch price + hope to toss a 20 % off coupon on top, if we actually have one of those coupons. ;)

But... but... What about BF4...?

#battlefeel (in ycs, I'm on mobile)

I for one like origin for what it does, update and launch my games with no issues. No need for bells and whistles.

I don't own BF4 PC.

I only played the hell out of it when it had Game-Time, so I could purposely delay buying it - so that if I do buy it, it'll be damn cheap. ;)

I think everyone's missing the big picture here: he's played his own game for 40+ hours and only got 41/45 achievements! WTF?!

Reported to PlayFire.

Paranautical Activity

ORIGIN EXCLUSIVE

So still - nobody's gonna play this game.

I think Me + Neuro (he's using it for ME3 probably) are probably the only ones using Origin still. ;)

@NewEggJeff

 

Hopefully, you can also convince Square Enix to toss some sales on PC versions of Final Fantasy 7, 8, and 13.

Especially Final Fantasy XIII PC.

Dark Souls 1 is starting to getting rid of GFWL. Steam achivements got added.

 

http://steamcommunit...20/achievements

Excellent.

Hopefully, we can transfer our G4WL saves right over to Steam-saves, too.
