Interested in Shogun 2 but anyone remember how much it was as the daily deal on steam earlier?


9.99 I think.

I just really don't want to get burnt on the DLC again like I did with Empire and Napoleon. Every sale goes by and the GOTY version of the two games together is less than the DLC for them. Its insane.

Picked up Sonic Generations and Duke Nukem Forever (activates on Steam, $4.99, with a $5 coupon for later digital download in January). Thinking about Shogun 2 and DLC, from the way it looks, you get a $5 coupon for each DLC pack as well as the main game. So, about $12 for the game and three DLC packs, with $20 worth of coupons in return, and I can activate it on Steam. Tough to pass up.

Just keep in mind they are not stackable and are only good on select items..

That's true, they're only good on digital downloads of the best selling games of 2011, from 1/1/12 to 1/31/12. However, I had $15 as my price point to buy Sonic Generations on Steam, and had thought about picking up Duke Nukem at $5 on Steam. Now, if I do find any games that qualify for the $5 coupons in January, I have the coupons to use. If not, I'd have spent the money anyway directly on Steam.

Tropico 4 at $5 is really tempting but I heard it's more of an expansion to 3 than a full new game. Plus I haven't played much of Tropico 3 yet. But still I doubt it will go below $5 anytime in the future.

At least through tomorrow. To be honest it depends on how well the sale is adopted by our customers. As you can tell, we're pretty big on community feedback, if we're running something that we can tell the customers don't want (because they aren't buying it), we'll switch it up. We think this is a better method than just scattershotting a bunch of deals out there without concern to how you guys enjoy them.

Cheers,
Tony

Fair enough, as long as the prices are good for all day tomorrow that works for me. I want Sonic but need to see how much cash I have left after buying a last minute gift as my best friend just had her baby today and my mother was so nice to tell me that I must get her flowers and stuff when I see her in the hospital tomorrow lol.

I like the method you do, if the sale sucks why bother running it as it does nothing to help any party involved.

A lot of the time I give negative feedback to Amazon for having crappy deals [particularly throughout this year with PC games compared to console deals]. These Sega deals are really awesome. I haven't purchased anything because I know that I wouldn't play Shogun because I didn't play Medieval 2 when I received it as a gift, but they're really nice deals - same with sonic.

I've been really torn between Sonic and Rayman - ultimately going with Rayman, so just waiting for Rayman PS3 to hit $15-20, I think, and then will bite. Feel terrible about waiting for the price to drop to that, but must save money.

I can tell you that they will be live, with some new additions (Renegade Ops for $3 anyone?) through tomorrow.

Congratulations on your friend's baby, I'm about to be an uncle for the second time so I'll be doing the flower thing as well shortly.

Even though this is the console version review from GiantBomb and there Quicklook goes on for almost 50 mins, that game looks like a crazy old-school top-down vehicle shooter w/ modern graphics.

Renegade Ops for $3 would be an instant buy for me. Also Tropico 4 for $5 is an outstanding deal.

Amazon does offer, and it's the same price. I tried the trial at Steam, and for $5 that's an instant buy. Loving the Amazon deals!

I'm interested in Shogun 2 but I have a couple of questions first, 1. how hard is the game? is it newb friendly would I enjoy myself or is it hard to get into, I have only played one RTS game before which was Warcraft III years ago 2. I see all the DLC is also on sale are any of them worth getting?

I hate to be a party pooper. I love Tony's work and Amazon's deals and I love this program to give Steam some competition, but I just gotta come in and hate up the place. I didn't like Renegade Ops at all. It does what it does, but the action was not satisfying enough and the vehicle controls too annoying for me to derive much enjoyment from the game. The game also never really expands on the premise it launches with. Every single mission is practically a carbon copy of the first, with only a few decent actiony crazy driving runs here and there, and even those are weaker because of your cars perverse love of flipping

I would be all over Tropico if it was Steam Activated. However my copy of Tropico 3 and expansion from D2D have been sitting unplayed for over a year now and spending 5 bucks to add to the pile doesn't make sense.

Party pooper? Hate up the place?

Thanks for the kind words about the deals we're running and my participation with your awesome community but I really hope I don't convey a sense that I look down on any sort of criticism of the games we put on sale! I wish you guys would venture over to the Amazon Digital Video Games forums from time to time and breathe some Core Gaming life into them.

I limit my discussion to what deals we're running and when because that's the focus of this particular medium, but I'm always happy to hear about how this group feels about the content of the games themselves...I might not always agree with you but it is awesome to talk about.

That being said, I'm pumped about Renegade Ops for $3 because I'm going to gift it to a couple of my cousins :)....the kind of gameplay you described above is exactly their style...the crazy driving that is...

Seriously though, no hate felt, no party pooped!

Cheers,
Tony
