Here's hoping Krater wins.

Waiting for the new deals is kinda losing it's excitement since so many are repeats.

Yeah, I worry that the Daily Deals will be like 85% rehashed Community/Flash Sales.

Oh yeah, and I wasn't gonna grab Fable III yesterday, but then I noticed the pack with the 5 DLC's and The Lost Chapters was the same price as the base game.... what was up with that?


The pack with the 5 DLCs and The Lost Chapters was the same price as the base game. That's what was up (and why I grabbed it). :)

Risen is not a killer IP. RPGs that don't differentiate themselves don't sell well. Amalur succeeded almost entirely because of that demo, word of mouth from that demo, and to a lesser extent the names attached, and even then it kept getting marred as "generic".


Um...

It's odd having the site down before 1PM EST. Usually it crashes around the time new daily deals appear.

Apparently I'm not the only one unable to get through. I went to check the deals this morning about 40m ago, and couldn't get on even then. And now I'll miss my community vote and never get my badges.

oh well. Hey there F5.

In preparation for the possibility of an ARMA II sale - what's all this DayZ hype? I read over the website for the mod, but didn't have a chance to watch any gameplay video...it sounds like most people are buying ARMA II just to play DayZ?

Are they even working on bringing Trenched to the PC? I haven't heard anything about that.

As for the rest, you'll be waiting at least a year, perhaps longer.


I'm hoping it comes. They may have to wait until existing contracts end, of course.
The biggest clue, or trolling, was the last minute of the Double Fine Adventure campaign countdown party. The cameras were off but Tim Schafer was still (knowingly) mic'd and said, "I didn't say anything about Trenched PC did I? Whew." Someone else, "Your mic!" Cut to black.

The badge requires you to vote at least 20 times and each day. We already hit 15 votes earlier so even if you just vote once a day from now on so long as you have been keeping up, you will be perfectly fine...

Mobile app is still down :(

Total damages so far: around $90. I've got about $15 left and one last thing on my wishlist, but the sales in the last day or so have been rather underwhelming. Let's hope they've got something nice in store for us :D

I played the Krater Beta, mostly because I was hoping for good things from Fatshark. The post-apocalyptic Swedish setting is cool and different but the combat was very bland and I've read that there are a host of other design issues, like having to replace your characters every five levels because they can't advance anymore. I'm not too enthused about it at this point.

And I know this has kinda been brought up already, but does anyone else find it extremely frustrating to be waiting for these community choice and flash sales to pop up only to see they are games that have already been on sale only a day or two ago? >:0



Yeah :/ I'm still waiting on Torchlight I (+75%!).

Does anyone know if Steam has a product activation limit or throttle? I was activating a ton of stuff and now it is showing invalid key for everything (even though the keys are valid steam keys).

It's my first big sale and i only meant the flash deals and community votes being repeated and stuff. That "Game not available in your region" message showed up a lot yesterday as well. Kind of ticked me off even though I didn't really want them. That and EA games all cost 2.5 times as much here as well for some reason. Alice was 12.50 during the Flash Sale...

Any recommendations on Auditorium? Looking at gameplay trailers and it looks like you look at a lot of colors on screen and you try to make the music connect. Just got it and wanted to see if I want to keep it.

Krater looks like a great candidate for the Humble Indie Bundle, I'm mildly interested in it but my backlog just got bigger with all the games I just got over the last few days, I think I will wait for it to go cheaper.

Wasn't Alice $4.99?

Auditorium was in an Indie Royale bundle. There is a rumor that if enough people demand it they might bring back some of their bundles, but it is only a rumor. I haven't played it, but it is on my steam library so I might give it a try one day.

So is the Ys game in the indie bundle worth five dollars? What's it like? (beyond being an arpg...at least, that's what it looks like in the video).
