I'm surprised the old thread didn't break CAG.

It was starting to get to that point.

It kind of broke the Steam thread itself. There was incredible lag when posting.

That would be why we needed a new thread, and we'll make sure this one doesn't get so big.

It's amazing what a difference a fresh thread makes. It was at the point where it would take 20 seconds to load a page telling me that I had to wait 45 because it was trying to double post.

Yet more reason to start with a fresh thread.

not sure why it isn't but should probably add the group buy and gift request thread http://www.cheapassg...ad.php?t=279563 to the first page not sure where though, under everything else in group buy section maybe?
Found it annoyingly hard to find for some reason during the last sale, search thingy not always too helpful for trying to find threads it seems.

Always been sort of interested in Jericho so will try the demo and might pick it up.
And oh my a new thread again last one lasted a lot longer than the previous one I think.

It was on sale during the summer sale, but I wouldn't expect to see it marked down again til the winter sale.

It has been. Once. In April there was a 40% across-the-board sale for Civ 5; the game and the DLC.

I am watching the other sites that sell Civ 5 for DLC sales, too: Amazon, Gamersgate, D2D. If I see something, I'll mention it here.

For those waiting, I think a "complete" pack is a long way away - Civ has always had expansions at the 1-year and 2-year mark, and the "complete" edition ("GOTY" in today's parlance) comes after 3-year mark, and it remains at a very high price ($40 or $50) until the 4-year mark.

Maybe that will be different because of the DLC model, but I'm not holding my breath. I think, if you're hot to play the game, that buying the game today for $17, and then waiting for a 75% off sale on the DLC sometime this fall (the 1-year mark) is a viable strategy. But if you have a big backlog, or aren't too hot to play, then yeah, wait, and some day you'll get it ALL for $10! :D

Any positives on Jericho? It's been almost universally panned but if I can get $2.50 of enjoyment out of it I may buy it.

Rather regret getting ARES:Extinction Agenda and Dungeons of Dredmor. ARES is just dull and watery. DoD I might just not like because I haven't been big on roguelikes as of late, but I did beat 100 Rogues...

Still, I WILL say that DoD's humor isn't anything special AND there's no reason on earth to buy it instead of just getting Nethack or Stone Soup.

Again, don't let me stop you, just throwing the complaints out there.

^ I passed on ARES for $5 this past summer sale... I figured it would most likely pop up in an indie pack this winter.

Hard Corps: Uprising is currently giving me my Contra fix ;)

It's weird that I am reminded by Steam I have certain games when they update...like for example, when I was wondering what Steam was updating last night, I had apparently bought Railworks 2 at one point.

Anyways, Altitude is a fun time waster, give it a try for the free weekend people!

ARES just sucks. Don't even hunt for it in a pack.

Hard Corps Uprising IS so much better than ARES, it isn't even funny. I always joke (While still more or less meaning it) that the worst Metal Slug beats the best Contra, but ARES just makes me feel like this is the sort of game that Metal Slug 3D beats. It's just dull as heck.

I've found Dungeons of Dredmor to have a great sense of humor and charm plus a solid GUI and fun skills to experiment with and a nice progression of difficulty levels/permadeath option. Well worth the $5 they're asking for it.

I was considering Jericho until i noticed the 60 range metacritic score. Have far too many games in the backlog to bother with a game like that.

It's not on the almighty list: https://support.stea...=7480-wusf-3601

However, I do believe that keys straight from the developer's site work. Usually in those situations it only works from the developer's site and no where else, but I am not 100% on this one.

I do have an extra copy on steam from when I made my purchase, so if you're looking just for yourself, give me a PM and we can talk about it.

Picked up Jericho. Not huge on FPS, but for $2.50, I'll take my Clive Barker fix.

Frozen Synapse is not tied to Steam like a proper Steamworks game. I think to them, Steam is just an extra means of marketing, hence having a separate online key. If you bought from them and got a free copy, you could download that from their website.

Oddly enough, you CAN do that without the free copy key and play that "free" copy offline. Not exactly legit but not piracy. It was the demo I needed to go for the game.

Yeah, Frozen Synapse is a must-have for me, but I figured I'd wait for a good deal since I have so much to play. On the other hand, I ought to support it! Shoulda bought a two-pack during the summer sale and split it with someone.

I've put more hours into Dungeons of Dredmor than I have anything bought during the Summer Sale.

Outside of my accidental indoctrination during my youth with the masochistic Fatal Labyrinth on the Genesis, I'm not really a fan of Rogue-likes (maybe Shiren) so the humor and UI go a long way towards making me tolerate the genre again.

Very relaxing game despite the difficulty and default permadeath. Definitely a gem of a surprise for $5.

I found Mr. Robot to be a fun game that was ruined by a poor control scheme. The platforming/timing puzzles were extremely frustrating with the isometric view and made things harder than they needed to be, imo. I'd recommend trying the demo first if you're interested.

Got this in one of those indie packs in the Christmas sale. All in all, I had a pretty good time playing it. The battles aren't particularly thrilling, but the puzzle elements, and to a certain degree, the platforming elements were pretty fun.

Edit: BTW, if you care about achievements, be forewarned that one of the achievements in this game is glitched and is impossible to get. Over on the developer's website, he basically admits that he has no idea how to correct this problem.
