Since I already owned SC:FA, and only purchased the Gold Edition for the original, here is a giveaway for the extra copy.

You should also get the original game as well with this key.

Hmm, that's interesting. I wonder if it will actually work and somebody else will actually get a copy of the games. Only one way to find out, I guess.

Entered.


Thanks man.

EDIT: Actually, thanks to Motoki, I now know for sure that it'll work.

I got to the pitch black place where you have to give up your shield for a lantern. Already have it on 360 so not really excited about the PC port, I will be getting the DLC though.

Deponia is now available on Steam and 20% off ($15.99) until August 14.

Daedalic Entertainment, once called “Lucasarts from Germany“ by the GameStar magazine, invites the players into a fantastic comedy adventure that revolves around a crazy love story of Rufus and Goal. In Deponia, the world has degenerated into a vast garbage dump, in which the crotchety Rufus ekes out his sorry existence.
Genre: Adventure, Indie

I'm so interested in this one that I'm bothering to embed the trailer!

The worst part is you can't just jump back into the game; you need to ease into it; and that place is one of the worst places in the game if you aren't on the ball.

Love Dark Souls, but I have it on the PS3 and no want for a cheap port. The cavern isn't too hard. Just requires you to take it slow to make sure not to aggro more than one skeleton at a time. If you have the balls for it you can also just run past them, takes about 2 minutes from the start if you know the way. Look through youtube for some run videos. Best part of Dark Souls is the PvP (150+ hours sunk in that aspect) so if the online isn't a shit lag fest I may bite at $20 price on PC.

Since the Counter Strike Global Offensive pre-order starts tomorrow its a safe bet that the franchise will be on sale for midweek madness

Counter Strike complete pack (including CS:GO) was also spotted on the steam database (which also hints at a midweek madness)

So The End and I just found out that the Supreme Commander Gold on the THQ site gives you two keys that register for both games for $4. That's an awesome deal with potential to get both games for $2 if you split with a friend for the other $2.

Oh and on a totally unrelated note, if anyone besides me and Fox actually cared, the 360 wireless driving wheel controller does work with Rig 'N Roll. :lol:

Dude, shut up! I already know I would totally suck at that game, and you're just making me want to get it anyways because it's such a deal.

You sure that would work? Seems like all you can purchase at 50% is the upgrade to Dead Island GOTY, not the actual GOTY. Unless others have confirmed it to work. Maybe it is a glitch and giftin an upgrade will give the giftee the whole thing? Seems unlikely, but you never know.

I tried gifting this to a friend already and they said they had all the DLC available under their properties tabs, so I think they want people to share the game with other friends instead of having the 4-pack around. It's definitely an interesting approach, but I wish we had both. :cry:

If you're talking about Front Mission Evolved, I think that was around $6 at gamersgate at one point.

Motoki,

It really isn't such a big deal. I was starting to poke around for it anyways. With Dawnguard, I launched a new character.. thus NO guards speak of it until you're level 10. I was 9 :-) No biggie though, it's just one of those things. But yes, it becomes absurd the amount of times they repeat it if you DON'T just go.

It's like sheesh.

I can't say for sure, but I don't think the actual codes themselves are region locked. I don't see any info indicating the game is region locked.

Since everyone who gets in on this deal gets two keys, you might be able to buy or trade one off of someone.

The codes are region free i believe. And yes, good idea, i will try to trade with someone here. Thanks :)

I would be if I already didn't own the PS3 Collector's Edition. I'll probably just buy the DLC on PSN. I wouldn't mind buying it again on PC, but I heard it's a bad port. Plus it really annoys me (as a hardcore fan of the series), that they released a patch that not only nerfed a lot of things, but made the game a whole lot easier.

Ninja Blade was 75% off the whole duration of the summer sale. I was going to buy it, but I already went way over my spending limit ;)

I might double dip on it and grab it for the pc, if the port is decent. I don't like GFWL mind you but I've never had any trouble with it so I could put up with it. As long as the port was decent and ran as good as the console version. I would probably be a buyer at around $20.

I've heard so many great things about Dark Souls, but have seen limited game play. I was pretty excited when they said they were going to release it for the PC, but was a bit skeptical on the GFWL. I would bite on a cheap price, but I think I'd go expensive it didn't include that feature (and obviously if it was better ported).

And I gave up on the 360 when my first one died. :/
It lasted a pretty good ~5 years though.
And my brother ended up fixing it, but the colors are all fucked up.

I agree. I was really excited for it but then GFWL + Japanese man from From saying 'ohai port sucks*' = HOPES DELETED = way less I am willing to pay.

It went from a must buy day 1 to a wait and see. Unless the general consensus is that it's really amazing, I probably won't buy right away. If the opinions are mixed I'll wait for a decent sale and if the (non-rabid fanboi/girl) opinions are mostly bad I will just pass.

I've seen too many FAIL launches lately to go in blind like the Battle vs Chess or the Final Fantasy VII one.
