So.. Safe to assume that KOA reckoning won't be on sale?


I'm hoping. You can actually get it for $15 at Best Buy on PS3 or X360 right now, but I'm waiting to see if I can get a PC version.

On the Summer Sale Group page it says that Quantum Conundrum is among today's deal. However, I'm only seeing a 10% discount. Anyone else notice this?


I saw this too, maybe they made a mistake? Amazon has it on sale for $9 and you can add it to Steam

Though I'd never recommend DNF, I thought it got better as it went along, but it starts really, really badly, and only near the end does it get somewhat enjoyable, occasionally. The Doctor DLC, however, is much better (not that it's great, mind you.... it's good). If you somewhat enjoyed DNF, I'd definitely recommend the new campaign DLC.



My problem with DNF was how much it wasn't Duke Nukem. You spend more time in that game driving some type of vehicle, or sitting in a shooting gallery, than you ever do running and gunning. I wanted more Duke 3D/Serious Sam run and gun old fashioned FPS.

I would do it. Very cheap price for a great game. I still hold it as one of my favorite RPGs.


I agree, I'm not really a Star Wars fan much at all, but this was an absolutely amazing RPG with a great, deep story line. If you enjoy RPG's then I'm pretty sure you'll enjoy this game.

Why doesn't steam just save my age so I don't have to keep clicking this stupid thing. Argh.... all this finger exercise!!!!!


The thing that really bothers me is if you visit a game that yo already own, it still asks you to give your age if it's an M rated game. How dumb is that?

So I'm thinking about picking up Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic before it ends tonight for $2.49. I know it's only $2.49, but I am not a huge Star Wars fan at all. But I heard this game was amazing. Can any non-huge Star Wars fans recommend this to a fellow non-huge Star Wars fan? lol...thanks!


I'm more of an RPG fan than a Star Wars one and I liked it. If you like Mass Effect and generally like Bioware stuff you'll like it. I don't think you need to be some huge Star Wars fan to play it really. That's just the setting for it.

I'm certainly not trying to change your mind on this; but personally I can't bring myself to feel that way. I'd gladly pick up Duke for $1, and I feel like it'd be fun enough at 7 hours to play through and never touch again. I hear so many bad things about DNF, TFU2, etc... but really, they look like fairly decent, if unexceptional experiences to me. Myself, don't mind the occasional "okay" game along with the AAA's, so long as the price is right.

Honestly, if it's a "piece of shit game", why even keep playing?


Got it for free and regret it.

SP only? Not worth it.

Actually, come to think of it, Blops's Zombies matchmaking was infuriating and the game was so unfocused that it was hard to like even though it had so much good

But yes, SP only? You know what you're getting so you'll know if it is worth it to you. I thought it was standard CoD fun with standard CoD bullcrap too.


I really enjoy the COD series single player campaign (I have MW1, MW2 and WaW), but I can't see myself spending 30 bucks for what will be a 6 hour playthrough.

It is starting to feel like they blew their wad on the first couple of days of the sale here lately. Between rehashed voting and putting some of the same stuff on sale at least 2 times since in 5-6 days, I hate to say this but it really feels like this Steam sale is running out of... steam. Today's daily deals are pretty meh. Unless some good flash sales and community vote sale pop up today may just indeed a well needed rest for many peoples wallets.


I do like the idea behind the flash deals and the community votes, but part of these sales has always been the anticipation of what the next big deal is going to be. While the deals are still unarguably amazing, I think all the repeated deals sort of inadvertently take something away from the anticipation aspect. The repeated deals sort of become the "dud", so to speak.

Limbo is a pretty good albeit short game, definitely worth $2.50

Like Taboner said, its a Bioware game. It is also Bioware at their BEST.

I'm not a huge Star Wars fan either but I really liked the story in this one. I think its because it takes place so long before the movies that its almost an entirely different mythology that doesn't reference the movies and isn't weighed down by it when telling a story. Outside of the iconic Star Wars stuff like lightsabers and force powers, I saw the game as sci-fi, but not necessarily Star Wars. You don't need any Star Wars knowledge.

The USA Haulin' pack is 90% off.

http://store.steampo....com/sub/12399/

I'm thinking of getting it. Seriously. How is it?


I got it :)

As well as the Trainz vs. Zombies DLC

Running total for me this sale: $12.39

Railworks 3 Haulin USA Pacl
Trains vs. Zombies DLC
Killing Floor DLC

It's like Gabe reads all my tweets and fulfilled my railworks dream :)

The only awful thing about Railworks is that I am seriously sitting there looking at the DLC like "Damn, I used to live near that line" or "Hmmm, that's right down the road" and believe it or not tempted to purchase one of the DLCs... please stop me Coconut Queen.

I have a handful of leftover July Madness Bundles - PM if interested

Just buy AC and Harleys Revenge. The rest of the DLC is just challenge map stuff.


I'll echo the others saying the Skin Pack is very nice. There's quite a variety and, let's face it, you're going to be looking at Batman for quite a while and a change of pace can be pleasant. It's purely cosmetic though and doesn't affect the game in any way.

I did find that once I finished the game I enjoyed the combat enough to get into the challenge maps a bit and when I did the other characters were quite a bit of fun to use in them.

I found out today that the Securom on Arkham City has a revoke limit as well as an activation limit. Securom confirmed this via email. That's pretty ridiculous, I've never heard of this before. Someone on the Steam forums ran out of revokes but I was skeptical until now.


And shame on Warner Bros for treating their customers that way.

I paid $1.00 for Duke Nukem Forever last year and played through the entire game. I wasted a dollar and seven hours of my life. Do not buy that piece of shit game. I can not stress this enough DO NOT BUY THIS GAME!


I'll go on record as saying not everyone agrees with what you've just said. I'm one of them. It isn't an amazing game, no, but it's not as bad as that. It's interesting that people are willing to scoop up cheap indie games and look past poor production values, but a $5 DNF game gets scathing hate. I understand the bitterness from long-time fans and it isn't "what it could have been", but there are some genuinely good moments and it's a good eight to ten hours of reasonably acceptable shooting and goofy Duke stuff.

For those on the fence, be sure to listen to both sides of the argument and take into account the price.

I'm doubting so hard to bite on stronghold 3... if the metascore wasn't so bad I would buy it immedeately. I do want it though... but that, plus my backlog is making me really doubt if it's worth 10 euros right now.

Also, I want to see some videos of that Zombie DLC!

Serious Sam is no more old school than CoD. SS is all pacing-destroying repetitive enemy spam. Old Duke was superior for level design and pacing.

But yes, DNF is horrid for being afraid to even put you in a gunfight.

Oh God D*** you. The only thing that's been keeping me from buying Railworks was that I couldn't find the DC-Boston line. But there it is. Northeast Corridor.

I'll still probably hold off, but the fact that I now know it's out there... it's going to haunt me.

Edit: Oh good. The USA Haulin' pack includes the base game. And there's Zombie DLC. Why? Why am I considering spending $10 on a TRAIN simulator? WHAT'S WRONG WITH ME?

Thanks for the advice everyone. I appreciate it, my wallet hates you though (all these cheap games add up, dammit!)

Yeah, I already picked up Haulin USA.

As for how it is, Honestly, I've never played the game. This despite the fact that I picked it up during the 2010 Holiday sale. But at that price, and considering how expensive the DLC is, I had to pick up that pack.

I store all games that I buy in my inventory, so if I play Railworks and like it, I can add the pack later. If not, I figure I've got an excellent shot of at least breaking even on the deal if I try to sell the pack off.

If you have even the slightest interest, now's the time to buy.

I love the old GTAs. I got the pack last sale and I enjoy them, especially seeing as Vice City can run well on old machines.

Arkham City DLC has been discussed quite a bit and I see no love for the Robin and Nightwing DLC. I personally love the combat and played a ton of the Challenge Maps.

If you plan to play the challenge maps and like the combat, get the Robin and Nightwing. If not just nab the Harley and Skins pack

I'm even going to say that despite enjoying RPGs, I really didn't care for a lot of Bioware games prior to KOTOR. I tried; really. I've gave up on Baulder's Gate II twice, sadly. They just weren't my cup of tea with so much dialog, team management, and the slower pacing, so I ignored KOTOR for the longest time.

But once I actually played KOTOR, I very much enjoyed it. Enough that I then went on and played through Mass Effect 1 and 2, and feel like I can give the older games a fresh look.
