I just saw that Crash Time III is 66% off. Does anybody have any thoughts on this one?

Space Pirates and Zombies is released!! It's $14.99, which is what the "on sale special deal!!!" price was (and still is) at Impulse right now.

Download the demo on Steam and give it a try! I just purchased it and downloaded it myself and can't wait to play after my errands are done today. :)

I highly recommend this game. I'm not even a big fan of shmups and I really enjoyed it.

Burn Zombie Burn! is the deal of the day, now $3.33 after 67% off. Looks like the best it's been discounted so far; it was only 66% during the summer sale.

Burn Zombie Burn was part of the Indie Fright Pack (Burn Zombie Burn, The Path, The Scourge Project, The Void, Zombie Driver) for $5 in the winter 2010 sale, but this is the cheapest the game has been on its own. Fun game to play in short bursts, I'd say it's worth the asking price.

Its worth checking out the demo even if your only just a little interested. Thanks Jesse_Dylan for pointing it out to me as I hadn't noticed the game before your post yesterday.

I just have been saving up and wanting to build this computer for a while so I am quite excited now that I have it up and running!

As far as Co-Op games go, I too wouldln't mind a few suggestions.

If anyone cares that it isn't Steam, GreenManGaming has
SPAZ
for 13.95. If you use the code SUNNY-SAVER-20PEC, it will take an additional 20% off the price, dropping it to 11.16.

That code will work with Deus Ex: HR and the game will activate on Steam as well. You can get it for $34 or $40 for the AE version.

Other popular co-op games on Steam:

L4D, L4D2.
Borderlands.
Magicka.
Sanctum.
Dead Horde.
Alien Swarm (free!).
Nation Red.
Altitude could be considered co-op if you're on the same team.
Portal 2.
Hunted: The Demon's Forge.

Also any of the new free-to-play MMOs like Champions, Spiral Knights, Global Agenda.

Not all of these are excellent but all are good, or at least high-profile. Good luck.

It will.

Before anyone jumps my shit about this being a Steam thread, my defense is that this is CheapAssGamer and I was simply pointing out how to get the game cheaper. I updated my original post to show that the 20% off code does work and getting it through GMG can save you almost 4 bucks.

TL;DR: It isn't retail, so look for something indicating the need for a 3rd party download/registration (Usually an indication of a Steamworks game).

Many games aren't on that list that activate on Steam, so that list isn't always reliable, as it only applies to retail games. To name a few: Super Meat Boy (Gamersgate version activates on Steam), Hamilton's Great Adventure (Gamersgate version activates on Steam), and Fallout 3: GOTY (Gamestop digital version activates on Steam).

That list only applies to games that you are at least able to pick up from a retail store and register the CD key on Steam.

If it's from a digital download service, you'll need to ask them or look for another CAG to vouch for the successful activation on Steam. Sometimes there is more to it than a simple list. I wish this message would reach all CAGs who have the same question.

Unfortunately, it's limited to those who show interest in this thread, and not even everyone from that pool. =/

Guys, what's some good co-op games on Steam?

???


I would suggest checking out the already mentioned Alien Swarm (**FREE** 3rd person isometric action shooter), and also Tobie's Vertical Adventure (16-bit styled action platformer).

SUPPOSEDLY all copies of SPAZ will activate on Steam, but it's not required. Right now there's a bit of a mess as some of the keys are in Steam's database but some aren't. Since I bought my copy about 5 days ago on Greenman Gaming, mine isn't. But people who bought earlier than me on GMG are.

So it probably won't work right off the bat, but supposedly it will activate on Steam eventually.

Sorry to hear that, my friend, but big kudos to both you and your wife. It does warm the heart to see people sticking together. Bless you. That's what life is really about, I think.

Tried demo of SPAZ. Seemed alright but not $15 alright.


Boo. :( How much did you play? It took a while for me to get hooked. I thought, "Well, this is interesting" for the first 30 minutes or so, but after that, wham, I was playing with my fleet, harvesting stuff, buying and researching and messing with the tactics screen, and having a great time. It gave me some of the same feelings, oddly, that Oblivion does (present-tense... playing it again... it's like a yearly thing for me).

I bought Space Pirates and Zombies and just put 82 minutes into it. I gotta say its a lot of fun, really reminds me of star control 2 and thats really a great thing. Its worth checking out the demo even if your only just a little interested. Thanks Jesse_Dylan for pointing it out to me as I hadn't noticed the game before your post yesterday.


REALLY glad you like it. I have to admit that whenever I enjoy something and there aren't any reviews for it, I am hesitant to recommend it, worried maybe it's just me. Especially considering that it's apparently not even on sale right now (though it is $15, which was the "sale" price on Impulse). But as someone pointing out, there is a way to get it cheaper and apparently still activate it on Steam, which is really cool.

It'll be interesting to see how the game is received critically, if it gets any attention at all.

_____________________

Kind of off-topic, Dragon Age 2 is $25 at Target this week. I sure wish it activated on Steam. Kinda wish I'd bought it on Steam when I had the chance. Maybe some Dragon Age 2 Game of the Year Edition with all the DLC will come out in a year or two on Steam and be on sale for $5. That would be good enough.

Don't get me wrong, SPAZ was interesting and I liked the sort of free wheeling, just collect and build mechanics. That losing a ship was scarcely a speed bump so long as you didn't keep losing. The comparisons to SC2 don't seem right to me, as SC2 was massive time management, adventure game style dialogs and fetching, and very arcade, distinct combat... and lousy mining. This is entirely different, something like Space Rangers only in real time with a better focus and less stupid difficulty curve. I don't know.

I got to about working grinding quests/resources in the second quadrant before calling it a night. I liked the ideas and the style, but the interface was still awful in a lot of ways and I was not feeling the combat. Mid combat targeting is still stupid.

Also, I thought overflow crew was supposed to go to your goons stock...
