I'm going to play against type and admit to liking Sequence a lot. The dialogue is almost oppressively nerd hipster Wheadon-esque but I enjoyed it.

The dialogue is a combination of Joss Whedon and Wil Wheaton?! Can't get any more geek cred than that!

Quick question.

I read elsewhere (can't remember which thread) that Payday: The Heist is going to be $5 as an Amazon Digital Download later this week.

I really want the game, and that's the cheapest I've seen, but I live in the UK and I don't think I can buy through the website.

What happens when you buy through Amazon? Do you just get sent a Steam code?

I'd be happy to help you with that once the deal goes live. You helped me get the GTA Pack over the holiday sale at UK prices, so I'd like to return the favor.

On another topic, does anybody know if Unstoppable Gorg was given away free somewhere recently? I'm seeing a heck of a lot of people offering keys to the game on trading forums.

I'd stay away from steam keys on the steam forums. I stupidly got burnt on the whole dead island key fiasco. You live you learn

Looks like Saphire video card owners got it free.

Midweek Madness is Cities XL 2012 at 75% off.

£7.50 in the UK, looks like it's cheapest in the US though ($10 I think, can somebody confirm?).

Oh yeah, I've heard stories about trades for keys going bad or people getting screwed over with stolen keys. I have no plans of trading for any keys. I was just wondering where all the keys came from all of a sudden. Looks like pROvIs found the answer though. Thanks to him.

I trade codes all the time with people on CAG or somewhere with an actual feedback system and reputation. However, I'd stay away from Keys and Paypal on Steam Forums. Both have been known to backfire.

I traded an Unstoppable Gorg key with someone from the Steam forums. The guy had good rep and was OK with giving the key first. Since the Saphire deal was legit, I went ahead. The game activated and downloaded with no problems.

It's probably legit. In some cases though even when the code redeems, later it is revoked. This happened with both the Dirt 3 and Dead Island keys in the wild.

Thanks for the story, pROvIs. I've always been wary of keys anyways, and I think that's kinda confirmed it for me.

I'll stick to trading gifts, spare codes can go to friends.

Are there usually any big sales this time of year? I know there's the summer sale and holiday sale which I missed out on this year, but just built my new PC and I'm looking to build the backlog with some new stuff.

Big ones are usually Summer and Winter. However, most of the major holidays have a minor sale. I'm surprised there wasnt anything for Valentines day. I'm pretty sure they did something for it last year. I'm pretty sure they will do something for Easter.

Most of the big sales for PC right now are coming from Amazon and Green Man Gaming. Many of which activate on Steam.

This. Also, I doubt Steam is going to run any major sales until at least the coupons from the Coal Winter event expire, so that means early March.

I agree with the easter event hunch, in fact I'd bet money we'll be hunting for easter eggs instead of coal in April.

What the others said. There might be an Easter mini-sale or something along those lines but the next really big one is summer.

If you can hold out until then, there will be tons on sale. If you tend to like most games from a particular publisher than the publisher packs offered during the summer and winter sales are a great deal.

Just an observation: coupons won in the holiday sale expire on 1st March.

I've only got a couple that I might take up (75% off etc.), the rest I think I'll let expire. I'll admit that I'll miss checking my inventory to see if I had a coupon for the daily deal, even if I didn't want the damn game :lol:

i'm in the same boat. got a brand new pc, now it's loading up time. i'm scouring steam, amazon and others for decent deals. amazon had some very good deals just this past week. i'm hoping to find a few good daily deals on steam now.

Depends on what you want. Most games can be purchased through steam however it may not be the best deal. Check out the amazon thread that's stickied. Lots of deals updated all the time in there
