Man, I was hoping for FEAR 2 going on sale. It's probably just a matter of time.


It just came out a few days ago, don't count on it being in a weekend deal anytime soon.

This deal is full of win.

I missed out on the amazon black friday sale (it was 30 or 35 I think) because I tried hunting around for a headset.


I still don't have a pc headset. I have a nice bluetooth headset I use for my phone/ps3, i i got a usb bluetooth adapter would this interface correctly?

If not, whats a good/cheap headset you guys reccomend for pc games.

Just a reminder that every Valve game sold at retail funnels down to Steam. You are getting box art, a key, and a disc with a backup of the game that must be registered on Steam. $25 is a steal. Get the game and back it up on your own DVD if you don't care much for box art and game keys.

I want this, but the demo ran like complete hell on my (well above specs) machine. it had problems with dual core machines, I guess? Did they fix this? and I don't want to fix it by disabling a core.

If only this was a B&M sale. I can't stand not having a physical copy of a full game.


Why? You can't sell or trade anything that is tied to your Steam account - which a physical disc would be. I suppose reinstalling would be faster from a disc, but I'd rather save the space if I can't resell the game anyway.

It's still a bit more expensive than what I would like to pay, but I don't think this will be getting cheaper any time soon, so I think I'll get this.

I had an issue like this, it was stuttering a bunch even though my specs are way above what I needed. There was an option in the game "Multicore Rendering" when I disabled it the game runs smooth as hell now. Try it on the demo.

Might have to get it, not sure, there will probably be a price drop around the time of the DLC, wouldn't be missing much since custom maps won't be possible until they release the SDK then.

This game is awesome on the PC! For anyone debating between the 360 and PC version, I can honestly say that the PC version blows away the 360 version if your computer is up to the task. I can't stop playing this game, even after I've played through levels over and over. It's the equivalent of team-based counterstrike in the sense that it's highly addictive and the game actually depends more on who you're playing with than variety in the levels. You just never know how other new players are going to play, and that's what makes it awesome ... are they going to set off a car alarm and bring the horde down on the team. Is someone going to make a bad choice and get left behind, will your team mate go crazy and shoot you right before you get to the safehouse, will the chopper come but you're pounced on by a hunter right before you can get on board and you're left for dead .... you just never know ... and that's what makes it awesome ... not to mention the mods on PC that will start to pop up (and have already ... imagine the hulk as one of the infected in your game ... won't see that on 360.

I already bought this from steam on release date, but its certainly a great deal. I actually prefer to have my games on steam then have the physical copy. Its much easier for me to have all my games in one place just a click away.

Awesome game (and also very hilarious)! I bought a steam key off of g2play.pl for 15 bucks if you guys want it for cheaper. Granted the site is not the easiest to use but it does work. And for those wanting cases and discs, you can always make your own kick ass custom ones.

Awesome, thanks for the heads up OP! Been wanting to pick this up for some time now, have only heard good things. Definitely worth a try for $25.

And all the moaning about "I want a physical copy", then go buy it at the store. But honestly, with Steam, an online copy is the same thing except you don't have all these discs laying around that you don't need. Steam is a good service, and there are not download restrictions on most of the games on there (unless they are by EA ...).

Also, one of the lesser known features of steam is that you can back up games to your HD or DVD. That way, if you reformat often or want to uninstall the game, you won't have to re download the entire game again.

Sometimes I wonder if people have ever actually used steam. Steam connects the game key to your steam account. You can login to any computer with steam installed (its free to install and create a login) with your account which has all your steam purchases tied to it and download the game as many times as you want on as many computers as you want.

Would you learn to read before making retarded comments like this? Every single time someone mentions Steam, someone makes this unintelligent claim. Then a million people tell them that you can re-download and re-install as many times as you would like. They even have mentioned you can make your on back-up disc of the data to avoid re-downloading and that you can install on multiple machines so you can play wherever you are. There is absolutely zero reason to complain about Steam unless you are an uninformed moron. But even with all of the correction, people like you come running in and blindly post the same useless crap instead of reading the posts to find out what has even been said.

Oh, and what happens when your precious DVD version of a game gets scratched or a nephew comes along and breaks it? As long as Steam servers are up, your games will always be available to you (and Valve isn't going out of business anytime soon).

This is an awesome deal if you're interested in L4D. No reason for anyone who's computer can handle it to not go ahead and get it.

I'm not trying to be rude, but it gets freaking tiresome with everyone always running in and dogging on some great deal for some stupid reason. If you don't like a particular game or something, fine. Go say that in a review thread. But leave the deals be. And if you can't manage to become informed before posting, just shut the hell up and don't post at all.

And before anyone accuses me of being too sensitive, I haven't even played this game, don't have an X360 (which this is a console exclusive on), and am not even sure that this would be my kind of game. So I'm not defending out of some fanboy-type of love. I just hate all of the retarded comments...

Alright, if it's unlimited downloads (at one location)


It's unlimited at any location...you just have to be on your steam screen name. You need to be signed into your login to play it though.

I need it for 360!
My PC's power supply broke, so I can't run my 8500 [to play the game] and I'm about to switch to Mac ... which would make it even harder.
...
$^@$^.
Well ... blah. Hopefully a deal like this comes out for the 360 version? I won't hold my breath.
