Is Trials 2 on PC any good? I guess you are best off with a controller?

Might bite on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum for $7.50.

I know it was on sale last year on steam or it was a daily deal but this year it is not even on sale. I regretted not picking it up last year.


Amazon link for the game:
http://www.amazon.co...rd_i=1000647281

This made me want to play the original RCT (from 11 and a half years ago), so I played a 40 minute demo to remember the good times, and now I want to play a lot more RCT. Downloading the demo for RCT3, but I'll probably just grab this Platinum collection for $7, since I never played it, but always meant to check it out. Thanks for pointing this out. I don't really want the expansions, and I would be okay with just the original for a dollar or something, but this is as cheap as any of them, so might as well get the latest (from 6 years ago).

Huh, hate to say it, but Star Trek Online for $2.50 (or $5.00 for the Deluxe version) is probably the best deal out of that. Might be worth giving the game a look if you want to get 30 days of playtime in a new MMO. Is there a trial or referal system going for that game?

This is a little off topic, but does anybody know how DLC works in ArmA2: Combined Ops if you buy it through Amazon? This is a great price, but I'd like to pick up the Private Military Company DLC as well and I don't see that on Amazon.

I did a quick search for you, and I don't really know what to look for. Here are the Steam forum pages for ARMAII and the DLC, maybe you can ask around: http://forums.steamp...splay.php?f=368

Exactly! We're not only cheap gamers, we're also asses.

"Good enough for me," I say; Life's too short to dwell on $5.

The PC version craps all over the console versions if you have a beastmode rig. You get a lot of whiny douches crying because Rockstar put some work into making a game that scales up and isn't a direct port...essentially they're butthurt that they can't max every slider. The console version has view distance set at the equivalent of something like 14, whereas you can put it up to 100 on the PC. You can up the amount of traffic dramatically, add a lot more detail to the effects, run the game in much higher resolution, ect...basically it's not hard to make the game require 10x the GPU power (or more) that the console versions push.

For reference, I have a two GTX 480s and an I7 at 4.2 ghz, and I can max every single slider in the game at 2560x1600 and play smoothly. When I had a pair of GTX 280s, I could play the game smoothly on 1920x1200 with settings far superior to the consoles, but nowhere close to maxed.

:applause::applause::applause::applause::applause::applause:

I might wait a couple days to see if steam has the same price but I will probably get Rollercoaster Tycoon 3, Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, and maybe Metro 2033.

Highly recommend Arma 2: Combined Operations for $12.50. That is the ultimate military sandbox with almost unlimited options as to what you want to do. Also recommend Cryostasis for $3.25. It is one of the most poorly optimized games I've ever played but the story is fascinating and keeps you going. Just don't go in expecting brutal combat or anything like that. It's more of a first person adventure game with some shooting in it.

Agreed that the PC version is beastly. Plus there are some interesting mods that make the city look even better. (and spank my gpu while its at it).

Been looking for a deal on TBOGT for a while. Already own the first episode on 360

1080i is for douchebags

Wow, Dark Void Zero is now $4.95? Looks like someone doesn't want my business.

I didn't buy The Witcher last year on Steam when the price went from $6.75 to $12. Therefore, I'm not going to humor Amazon is they bump in a similar fashion.

I guess I'll be keeping my sights on Steam's sale.

Nail'd seems like a pretty good use of $10. I only played two races this morning but it's definitely a solid game. It's like PURE except the focus is on racing instead of doing silly tricks. The tracks I played were pretty epic, and the game seems optimized well (didn't even hitch or break vsynch a single time at 2560x1600 60fps maxed out). I doubt it has the depth to drop $60 on but it's great at this price, especially for such a new game.

I wonder if Amazon just gives you a code or something since Mafia II is a Steamworks game :?

Has there been any recent word on Star Trek going to free to play? I can't afford a monthly payment (yay unemployment!) but I played the hell out of the beta.
