I'm all over The Oddboxx for $12.49.
Stranger's Wrath is worth that alone.

picked up winterbottom in case its a price mistake. Waiting for the site to be a bit more reliable for the rest. I see a lot I am interested in but I should probably hold off. Those of you who took part last year did the sales continue the whole time? I know some things got cheaper but did anything go away?

Don't think; just buy.


you mean pay $65 for games I can get in the Orange Box for like $10? No thanks... Counterstrike and Day of Defeat are not worth the additional content for an extra $50.

All I can say is wow at the Winterbottom price ($.50) and at the BFBC 2 price of less than $7. I have both, but really nice prices.

The bundle is $25 for all the games. Better than Orange Box by a mile. $65 is the "savings."

As far as I can tell, we're not able to buy Stranger's Wrath separately.

$65? Check your monitor again. And don't forget the L4D games.

Is it wrong that I still don't really want Winterbottom at 50 cents? :p

Oh well, crossing my fingers for some good deals.

It's $24.99. They list the "You Save" as $65. :)

It's only 25, and Left 4 Dead/Left 4 Dead 2 are probably worth the extra 15 bucks if they are your cup of tea. (The 65 you saw was the "you save")

I don't recall anything being pulled except the Witcher I think. So I'd say if its on sale its likely good for the entire sale.

Don't be a douche.
They specifically stated the introductory price would be the lowest for a long time. They stated they did that because they were tired of seeing customers buy games at launch only to get screwed over by the game being on sale shortly after.
I wouldnt care if they hadnt specifically said that, I wouldve waited to buy it like I do everything else.


I recall the quote you're referring to, and it was specifically relating to the XBLA version of the game.

AFAIK, the PC version never had an introductory price: it was just cheaper to preorder and then launched immediately @ $15.

The only things that changed over the course of the week were games that either ran out of licenses to sell (happened just once, Prey, and it was a daily deal) and then incorrectly priced daily deals that changed very quickly. So no, I don't see anything going away except for pricing errors, which is why the only reason I'm looking now is for those errors. My plan is to watch for prices too good to be true, and unless i find those, wait for daily deals. If the games I don't want to appear as daily deals, I'll pick them up on the last day. Also, the oddworld devs did say that that pack will only be 50% off today, but that's an exception where it's been explicitly stated.

Hate to ask, but is there a new group buy thread? Serious Sam HD is tempting, but a four pack buy at $2.48 is even more tempting.

It isn't worth getting worked up over it. You paid a price for a game and at the time you thought it was good, everything comes down in price even it was sooner than you expected it too.

You're right. I looked at the save $65 part instead of the cost $25 part ;). That's a much better deal heh. For CS and DoD it's not worth it still, but with L4D 1 and 2, it makes it a little better. I own or have owned all those games tho, so i'll pass.

Can someone answer me a question about the game packs. If I buy the Valve complete pack, I already have Half Life 2, Portal and Counterstike Source can I gift the games that I already own to a friend? Or am I stuck owning it twice basically?

Uh, $25 you mean. And Orange Box is $15 right now. And L4D1 and L4D2 are both in that pack, and regularly $10 each.

I own almost everything in the pack and I'm tempted to buy it again. Jeez.

Edit- Well jeez a little late hopping aboard the hate on dood for a mistake train.
