Somewhat tempted on GRiD because I've got a racing wheel, but I know I'll never use it because setting up/taking down the thing is kind of a bitch. Also tempted on The Ball, how long is the campaign?


This website says around 6 hours.

I played through the campaign on normal, played the bonus Portal maps, and messed around a bit in the survival maps and Steam says I've played about 8 hours

Anyone who's ever wanted to try a racing game: GRID is the best you'll ever get. It's Arcade-ey but extremely fun. Especially multiplayer. There's all sorts of cars including F3 and F1000. There's also destruction derby mode but you'll have to find a host willing to do that though :P On top of it all the graphics are very nice as well.

I've had some great and excitingly intence races with this game (I got it for 360 though).

For PC does it have multiplayer? Steam says online single player.

From what ive been told, GRID online servers were taken down for good. So basically just a single player experience. Still I heard it was a GREAT single player experience in its own right.

After dying frequently for a bit, my husband I got the hang of Terraria and were playing it the last few hours. Definitely a time sink-hole! I'm looking forward to building an epic house, someday.

Bought The Ball. It looked too good to not pass up.

I really like these daily deals. It allows me to try new games without breaking my wallet (if I decide I like the game enough). I wont buy anything if it's over $10 unless I really want the game though.

It will not activate on Steam, but you can also buy it from GOG for $10 with no DRM whatsoever.

Don't see anything. I will be assuming there is one especially since they still show dwarfs and the ball for the same price.

It's showing for me that The Ball and Dwarfs! are still on sale, just not showing up under the daily deal.
Maybe they are having issues today

A day without issues for Steam is a good day :lol:. No matter what the deal is, lol.

According to their News page, Brainpipe is today's daily deal game. 66% off so the price is at $3.40. I'm not near my Steam client at the moment so I checked it through the site but I don't see a link to a demo there (not logged in to Steam). Any opinions on the game?

It looks like all you do is travel a vertical path and avoid objects coming at you. Looks like it would be fun for like 10-15 minutes then get boring.

Not really a daily deal...

But after sinking many hours over the past week into Dungeons of Dredmor, I would highly recommend my fellow CAG'ers pick this one up! I think today is the last day for 10% off, so go save that 50 cents!

Oops, I did not know that. Sorry... that severely limites the joy of the game I think. I only played it multiplayer. Racing games SP never interest me much...

Does anyone know if you can play it over LAN? Was kinda planning on trying that this weekend.

Glad I held off on Dwarfs!? during the summer sale, definitely going to jump on that now for 75% off.


Ditto. I knew after playing the demo it'd be an instant buy at $2.50 but I was surprised when it didn't go on sale. However I got it now.

On another site I frequent they were talking about this deal, apparently you can play multiplayer still over tunngle or gameranger using the ingame LAN function. I am not familiar with either of those though, so I can not comment on quality.

The Watchmen deal would be better if it were a $3-$5 bundle. The games have been out for quite some time now and I don't think that is unreasonable to expect.

Altitude is great. A fun way to kill some time. Apparently there was a pretty big update today as well adding more maps, interface changes and balancing tweaks.

Tempted to get Civ5, but I'm still holding out eventually for a bundle deal that includes all the DLC. Besides, I've got PLENTY of strategy games to keep me occupied.

Altitude is lots of fun. Can be played with a mouse, but pretty much requires a controller to be played well, IMO. Bought it last year and I've had a good time with it.

That's pretty damn cool. And, seeing this reminds me I need to start those games. Been busy with other stuff, and forgot that I downloaded them.

Decided to buy GRID before the deal ended, I'm a sucker for racing game (especially from Codemasters). I also went ahead and bought that new indie game, Runespell:Overture. It looks like fun so I said "what the hell" and just slyly added it to my cart. Oh Steam I love and hate you all at the same time!

Is there car customization in GRID? Or do they just give you specific cars for certain challenges?
