You know your going to regret not buying it...but you're probably going to regret buying it. :)

I'm kinda surprised that Resident Evil 5 (and even operation raccoon city) didn't become cheaper. With RE6 on the way I would think it be wise for Capcom to sell off RE series game at discount to generating a bit more buzz. Should be cheaper than any marketing schemes. Guess Capcom is really stingy with sales.


yea i regretted for about 1 minute. then i refreshed my screen and it went back to $23.99; i know i'll pick it up I just don't know when and I honestly can say that if i do buy it now i won't likely touch it for 1 year. it's just really hard to resist the cheap prices and now i have to worry about the batman franchise sale. my itchy finger is almost done waiting for max payne 3 sale to be over too.

i would pick up re5 for pc if they have the dlc, even though i own re5 on xbox with all the dlc and re5 gold for ps3 for move support.

I've definitely spent enough for tonight, but I think I'll probably be getting Arkham City and DLC tomorrow morning. I'll have to consider Imposters as well. I definitely would buy the Batman bundle if I didn't have Arkham Asylum already

It will eventually be a 19.99 base price game(probably by winter sale 2k12 or at some point in 2k13.) and then be 75% off during the sales for $5. I am just shaking my head at all of this d/l content, is it worth it?


The Robin/Nightwing DLC is only worth it if you really like playing the challenge maps. Harley Quinn's Revenge is definitely worth getting though.

Prince On Persia complete pack 14.99 hidden flash sale


Huh. That's... odd. And really tempting. Although I'm wondering if we're likely to see them individually for 75% off at some point in the sale. I'm not really interested in most of them, just 2008 and Sands of Time.

But then, $3 a game is REALLY good.

Hmmm. I wish Batman ended after tomorrow's Deals go up. AC was one of the game I really wanted out of the sale, but I decided not to go over $10. Once I wake up in the morning I'm sure I will get it, but for now I'm going to wait.

So wait what is up with The Witcher 2? You cant register on gog with the steam version? What do you lose by going with the steam version?


AFAIK, you can still register a Steam copy of Witcher 2 on GOG at this point, unless that has changed.

I'd try it with mine, but I already owned it on GOG first then went and bought it on Steam because of their inept patching.

Any opinions on the Theatre of War games? I've been interested in them before as well. They seem pretty interesting. Is it worth getting the collection or just getting 3 or another one?

I did it today after I bought the Witcher 2 on Steam and it worked for me.

Out of curiosity, which would give more xp for gotham city imposters? The mega boost at 5x or the 25% or 50% boosts? I only played a bit on PS3 and forgot how quickly points are accumulated

I caved at the last moment- I'll move it to the front of my BL, so I beat it before it goes on sale again.

I would like a few of these games but I don't really need all of them. Too bad the individual prices aren't discounted at 75%.

Hn. That's a lot of useless DLC for Imposters and I already have Arkham Asylum... I wish the individual parts were -82%. I'll wait for complete editions down the line.

it got a 75 (out of 100) at gamespot. http://www.gamespot....city-impostors/

I don't know, it looked like a nice deal at first for the batman franchise but I just don't know. So far on this sale I have been pretty good about only buying things that I actually knew I wanted, no impulse buying. I hae never even heard of gotham city imposters.

Will this ever be cheaper in the future? maybe.

I'm torn here. I have Civ V already, but none of the DLC and I wouldn't mind having the older games as well. I could always trade my extra copy of Civ V right? $25 is an awesome deal for all that goodness.

Posted 15 July 2012 - 05:27 AM

Well that's everything I wanted to get out of this sale (plus more, thanks to this thread):

Rayman Origins - $14.99
Total War: Shogun 2 - $7.49
Trine 2 - $3.74
The Binding of Isaac - $1.24
Sonic Generations - $10.19
Assassin's Creed: Revelations - $13.59
Skyrim - $29.79
Ys Origin - $7.99
Orcs Must Die! GOTY - $4.99
Batman Franchise - $24.99

Total: $119

It would be great if Gods&Kings or Magic 2013 dropped, but I'm doubtful. I could always be swayed by a great bargain though (couldn't we all?).

I actually think is one of the better Steam sales, for me anyways. I spent more back in 2009, but this time I'm actually playing through them already. The flash and community sales do a lot more for me than the tickets/achievement systems.

Dang.

I was planning on getting Arkham City and all the DLC and spend $21 on it. Now though for $4 more I can get all of the Imposters DLC and Game.

Thoughts?

I already have Asylum. I wish I could get a gift copy of that...

I really want that Batman Arkham City but I'm holding out for Arma II to drop below 23.99. Trying not to spend too much since I recently quit being a retail slave and I got some games I'm getting later this year. Man this sucks.
