(Fist-bump) O:)

I go "camping" all the time...in the woods, in Call of Duty, in TF2....

It "hacking" that got me. How do you hack the tutor site? Do I need to build a TARDIS, travel to the future to answer GG questions for what amount to 50 cents?

EDIT: He need to update that profile cuz he's still answers questions ... lol

Really recommend answering the GameTutor question when you can, though, the coins do eventually add up and the questions are typically easy (most of it is "Will this work on Steam?"). Some thing don't change.



Wait, so you don't even need the right answer or the first answer? Or do you have to be the first answer to get the blue coins? Otherwise why would he care about camping?

The guy is obviously just noid, but he probably imagines you and others making some sort of script that notifies you immediately when a question is posted and opens the page so you can get first dibs.

you need to answer the question right and also be to first to post the right answer. Typically its obvious who helped the OP and the mods will reward the guy but sometimes the OP will tell the mod to split up the reward so everyone who posts gets a cut.

EDIT: never even considered a script....too bad I can't program

I know exactly where my original System Shock CD is, do you? ^_~ Awesome game, and I think it was probably the first game I played with a real 3D engine (unlike, Wolfenstein and Doom) -- everything felt so real.


I have System Shock 2 - I know where that is! :D
I don't have System Shock 1. :(

Wish GG, GOG, or Steam had System Shock 1 and 2 (miss that game) but I heard that the license is held by EA and some other insurance company (or something) which means that its Ebay or nothing.

It actually looks a little cooler :)

Nothing for me again, but good prices on Orcs 1 and Space Marine and Cryostasis.

Cryostasis is a good little horror game too.

Everyone who doesn't already own it needs to buy Cryostasis right now. For $2.59, you will not regret it.

Yeah, and you have the option of getting a steam key for it.. might as well wait until then if you have interest in any other 1C games.

Does anyone know why the prices on the Sims games went up? I was going to buy the Sims Medieval expansion, but they raised it from $4.99 to $9.98, and it looks like they also raised the prices on the rest of the Sims line.

Wait what? Where is confirmation for that? I thought I had been following that thread religiously, and I don't remember a preview of that being posted. Got a link?

Also: Updated OP with 8/22/12 daily deals.

Well, I wouldn't call it a glitch necessarily but EA week was only advertised as up to 50% off so either they fixed the error or it was a one day thing?

Yeah, Tony confirmed last week. 60 something games for $14.99 with steam keys for most I think.

Holy crap, that's ALOT for $15, and even buying Cryo separate puts it at $3.25 (he states all the games are 75% individually). Thanks, I'll definitely wait. especially for the Steam keys.

Everything was 75% off. So Sims 3 Reg was $7.49 I think and deluxe was $12.49. Most expansions were $4.99 and $9.99 for the Showtime one.

Ooh nice
Trine 2 $3.75

Less certain:
TrackMania United Forever $9 -- this is the 2006/7 version, not the 2011 Trackmania Canyons (which is $20 not on sale)
Lego Harry Potter 1-4 $6.78

- Login to your GamersGate account and click All Games under My Shelf on the left-hand side menu in the My Library section

- Locate the game you want to activate on Steam in your games list and click on its icon/title

- On the right-hand side you will see the details of the game including a "Redeem Code" (if there isn't one, contact GamersGate support)

- Start the Steam client and login to your Steam account

- Select menu option Games -> Activate a Product on Steam and follow the prompts.

- Enter the Redeem Code when prompted - the game should then be added to your Steam game list

Hope this helps. Pretty simple but maybe should be added to the FAQ in the OP.

Hmm, I was looking into the DRM on the Stronghold Collection. Amazon pitches the same thing as DRM-free. A discussion on GoG seems to point at the GG version having a one-time activation, probably offline CD-key (given the era of the original games).

Not sure if anyone is a Front Mission fan, but Front Mission Evolved is on sale for $5.20 before IGN discount.

http://www.gamersgat...mission-evolved

The cheapest it's been on Steam is $7.50 from what I can see, and the game is Steamworks, so it seems like a solid deal.

The game gets some mixed reviews, especially since it's an action game (more like the Armored Core series), rather than a turn based strategy RPG like the rest of the Front Mission series. That said, the combat is supposed to be pretty solid, the graphics look pretty impressive, and the explosions are supposed to be gorgeous. The biggest complaints I've heard about it have been that the on-foot missions are boring, and that the voice acting is sub-par.

Just thought I'd bring it up since it's a game that rarely goes on a good sale. Amazon just had it for $9.99 a month or two ago. $5.20 is the best I've ever seen on it by far.

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

op updated for 8/24/12 deals & Stardock deals. Nothing special. None of the Stardock games go more than 20% off, and all of them have had much better sales on Steam in the past few months. As for the dailies, meh.
