If you've waited this long you might as well wait a few more days to see if Torchlight 2 gets further discounted as a daily during the course of the Thanksgiving sale.

That's what I'm doing. If I can't get 50% -> 15% -> 5% off, I won't bother. Backlog is too large anyway and I need to start getting selective.

About Silverfall (original) + Earth Awakening (stand-alone expansion):

If you plan on playing original Silverfall...
MAKE SURE you have BOTH Silverfall (original) + Silverfall: Earth Awakening (stand-alone expansion) and that you do install them TOGETHER right into the same game folder.
Earth Awakening fixes so many technical issues w/ performance improvements; and has a lot of UI and camera fixes and improvements (which is for both games), it ain't even funny.
They (Monte Cristo Game Studios) NEVER patched all of that stuff into the original Silverfall game alone.
You NEED Earth Awakening for all the UI and camera improvements for the Original game!
BTW, RIP, Monte Cristo Game Studios!

If you only install the original Silverfall - you'll be missing out on tons of UI and camera improvements that only Earth Awakening gives you that it ain't even funny....
As someone who played Silverfall (original) before Earth Awakening came out, I'm telling you - the differences and improvements are like day and night here.

Earth Awakening is a stand-alone expansion, so you could always play that alone w/out installing Silverfall (original).
You'd have all of the UI fixes, camera fixes, and all of that stuff - b/c that stuff just comes w/ Earth Awakening period.


EDIT - Nov. 18, 2012:
You can read some of my thoughts that I wrote years ago on Silverfall + Earth Awakening...

Silverfall (original) [before Earth Awakening was released]:
Part 1.
Part 2.

Silverfall: Earth Awakening:
Part 1.
Part 2.


This is why CAG is awesome. Thanks! I might just bite on this because of you!

Silverfall went on my wishlist. I hope to snag the complete version on sale.

GG seems to be running 4 daily deals/day to celebrate the dispossession of the Native American people.

Not a daily but they have a Deponia and The Dark Eye: Chains of Satinav bundle for $16.

If anyone purchased assassins creed 3 on gamersgate you get a 50% off coupon which you could use for any other assassins creed title. You can put that towards the complete collection (which includes all the 4 titles now not just the first 3):
http://www.gamersgat...llection-bundle
Ended up costing me round $20. (IGN discount wasnt working with this purchase for whatever reason but GTP0 was and it subtracted off the original $44.00)

If anyone would like to purchase this send me a PM or if you're looking to get in on the deal might be worth waiting to see if it becomes a daily deal.

Anybody got their AC 3 keys yet? When I get to my games page on GamersGate, I see "unused serial keys", and two link for download extras, but no key or installation instructions.

Someday Anno 2070 will be at a real enough sale to warrant buying it but today isn't that day.

Well, got AC3 installed, but my deluxe content is missing...

EDIT: Ok. I figured it out. The same serial you use to activate the game you have to use again in the game (under the extras > redeem code menu) to unlock the additional content. A bit weird and counter-intuitive, but it worked.

They have been really stingy with sales on that game and it's not like it's new or anything.

I like that style of game well enough that I would have bought it by now if it weren't for the draconian DRM tages layered on top of UPlay.

Oh well, maybe in 2013 or 2014 when they come to their senses and patch out that Tages and put it on a $10 or below sale then I will bite.

I would say if you like ARPG's like Sacred 2, Dungeon Siege 2 + Broken World; and you like steampunk settings...
It's definitely worth playing Silverfall + Earth Awakening.
ESPECIALLY if you can get them real cheap!

I enjoyed the hell out of Silverfall + Earth Awakening.

Just curious - can anyone in the US see Sacred 2 Gold? I was able to buy it for US$5.99 (less my IGN discount). I think it's a special situation where, living in Puerto Rico, I have prices in US$, but some of the region restricted games are available.

Workin on it

I believe the way US users have to buy this one is through the UK site. Like it will show up on your shelf, but you have to do it through the .uk address I think.

So I do think this might be a special situation.

This is correct. Living in the US, we just need to hit up gamersgate.co.uk and use our usual GG account and buy it in GBP instead of USD.

And now Silverfall Complete is on Steam for $3.74 through the 27th. I snagged it right away. (Unlikely it'll go lower, and I don't want to forget.)

Steam freaked me out with 21+10GBs of download, wound up being just 10GB total. Apparently Earth Awakening is just 224MB on top of the base.

A dev posted this on the Steam forums, new indie bundle coming soon..

Hello, I am one of the developers behind War of the Human Tanks.

Since we are involved with the IndieFort Countdown bundle, I would like to clarify a few things that are misunderstood on the posts earlier in this thread. But first let me thank emcee80 for mentioning our bundle here. I'll start with an edited version of his post, I added hyperlinks to every game and a mention of their STEAM/Greenlight status.

IndieFort Countdown Bundle:

Week 1:
Aeon Command (Greenlight)
Genetrive 2
Space Pirates and Zombies (STEAM)
Waveform (STEAM)

Week 2:
Caster (STEAM)
Hegemony Gold: Wars of Ancient Greece (STEAM)
Strategic War in Europe (Greenlight)
Zombies (Greenlight)

Week 3:
Alien Hallway (STEAM)
Bridge It
Eryi's Action (Greenlight)
Terrorhedron

Week 4:
Achron (STEAM)
Alien Shooter 2 Conscription (STEAM)
Orczz (Greenlight)
Syder Arcade (Greenlight)

Week 5
War of the Human Tanks (Greenlight)
Will Fight for Food (Greenlight)
Zafehouse: Diaries (Greenlight)
Zombie Shooter 2 (STEAM)

Pricing: $4/week. For each bundle you buy, the next bundle you can get for $1 off the price.

Launches: Black Friday 2012

Each week has 4 games for a total of 20 games at the end of five weeks. We also have bonuses that will unlock with sale number goals that include 7 more games, 6 OSTs and an add-on.

This bundle is hosted by GamersGate, so you will get a key for them all there.

Also all games on this bundle that have Steam versions already present will give Steam keys to add them to your Steam account. Marked those with (STEAM) above.

And the rest are all on Greenlight (except 3) and you will get a Steam key for those too, when they are greenlit with your votes. So don't forget to vote YES for them. Marked those with (Greenlight) above.

Borderlands 2 (4 pack) - $134.89

With IGN discount and G2PO:

$107.91

$26.97 per person.


I'm very tempted, but I think I'm gonna wait until a GOTY, especially since I'm only half way through the first one.

There probably will be at least 5 DLC's (the 4 Season Pass DLC's + any Non-Season DLC's like the New Mechromancer Class DLC Pack), anyways... ;)

About those IndieFort bundles; it said that each bundle will be $4, and for each bundle you buy, the next will be a dollar off. Does that mean that someone who purchases the first 4 will get the last one free?

I doubt that it stacks, you probably just get $1 off each bundle. We won't know for sure until it goes live though.

You're probably right... but how awesome would it be if it did stack :). It would basically come out to 20 games for $10, minus any bonuses. Oh well, I guess I'll just keep dreaming...
