It's not a GG deal, but it compliments the 1C Complete Pack they had on sale a few weeks ago. You can pick up Penumbra Collection and Dawn of Magic 2 for $5 total on Amazon this week.


I wouldn't mind grabbing Dawn of Magic 2, but I can't cause I am located in Canada.

Thanks for the fyi nonetheless.

For those of you who purchased the Indie Fort Bundle from GamersGate and have been patiently waiting for the final secret unlock, it was unveiled today... Mordor: The Depths of Dejenol is now available for download in your games library. It's a 16-bit Windows 3.1 game from 1995 (which means it won't work on 64 bit systems). Enjoy...

Yes, this is serious. Words fail me. :drool:

Strange sale this week. DLCs on sale but base games aren't (Shogun 2, Renegade Ops). Going to guess those will be daily deals during the week.

That would make Dreamcast Collection right around $6. That sounds like a really great deal but...

when I look at individual Dreamcast games I see "DRM Free". The Collection, for some ungodly reason, says "STARFORCE".

What the... ?

Man, I really want to grab Sonic CD, but I don't know if the $2.50 is worth it. (I've bought Sonic CD several times now, from the horrible PC version from the 90's to the actual Sega CD version.) It's hard to say no to the game since it was rebuilt and has nice features like Steam Achievements.

CAG's, is Sonic CD worth another round? What makes this new version truly stand out?

For anyone interested, these are the DLCs that are not part of the Gamersgate Magicka Collection (according to the list on Steam):

Holiday Spirit $1.00
Horror Props Item Pack $1.50
Lonely Island Cruise $1.00
The Stars Are Left $2.98

So it looks like a total of $12.47 for the game and all DLC available compared to Steam's current Collection price of $24.99 or ~50% off. Anyone know if Steam puts the collection on sale for less than that? I have had this one on my wishlist for quite a while.

Some newer stuff it only gives you the 15% in blue coins though.

Yes, the DRM is "Steamworks." I'm still a bit torn on Sonic CD, which is odd considering the great price, but I'm not sure if I'd have the time to really appreciate it. I'm hoping a few CAG's will throw in their two cents on the game; The Retro Engine does sound intriguing.

Yeah, they do. It was $6.24 back in January, and one or two months after that, I think.. but the January collection was missing the lonely island cruise DLC. If you can wait for it to go on sale on Steam again and you want all of the DLC, you're better off buying it there.

You sure? I just tried a few of the newest games on the site and they all take 15% off the price upfront. It does show the amount off in blue coins, for if you're paying with them.

Positive, try it on Alan Wake. Maybe its just that game...but it gives me blue coins in place of the discount.

The only game I'm interested in is Sonic CD, which probably won't go lower than $2.50, but I'd be interested to see how the prices compare.

Thanks for the reply. I have so many games to play that I can wait for a Steam sale.

Quick question for anyone - If I was going to buy Shogun 2 is there any reason to buy the first one?

There's a list of GamersGate games that activate on Steam on their forums, but it's not comprehensive. Alpha Protocol isn't on the list, but still it's not definitive.

Either way, adding link to original post.

Quick question for anyone - If I was going to buy Shogun 2 is there any reason to buy the first one?

Yes, if you have a very slow PC or laptop then the original will run far more smoothly. Shogun 2 takes advantage of newer hardware and has reasonably high requirements (not killer, although the load times would probably be better on an SSD). Shogun 1 is also a lot easier than Shogun 2. Shogun 1 can be played without Steam, so if you're a Steam-hater, then that would be another reason to buy the original instead of 2. ;)

In terms of gameplay, Shogun 2 surpasses the original in every way, and given the identical setting, I'd recommend a different Total War game as an older companion title: Medieval 2 is excellent, IMO, although if you like your boats then Napoleon is also very good (and Steamworks).

I'll definitely go in on this. Have you confirmed it includes DLC?


I can't speak from personal experience, but multiple people have said that it does.

It appears that most places outside of Steam bundle the DLC with the base game for the copies that they sell. I know that Amazon does, and I heard people who bought the game off of that Brazilian site said that it came with DLC. Now I hear that the Gamersgate copies have the DLC. looks like non-steam stores is the way to go when buying Renegade Ops.
