I know, it's annoying the hell out of me. I mean I can live without Morrowind but Arma II needs a sale badly.


I've been waiting for morrowind to go sub 10 dollars for 2 years. The only reason why so many people want ARMA 2 is for Dayz (myself included) but 16 is pretty ridiculous.

Are the dailies mostly past flash deals and community choices?



No, the flash deals and community choices are mostly past daily deals.

It's selling more than well enough already so really no it doesn't. I realize we all want cheap prices and that's the whole point of this site but I also think we need to look at it from the other point of view sometimes. A sale makes sense for games whose sales have dropped off. Most games peak in the beginning on release then drop off and only spike with a sale. Obviously Arma II is a strange anamoly so as much as we all want cheap prices it really does make sense for them to not ride the popularity wave as long as they can before slashing the price.

TL;DR if you could sell something for a higher price and have it sell really well, would you lower the price? That goes against supply and demand.

Yeah, I was really hoping Sonic 4 Ep II would drop a little bit.


If you grab the free games and vouchers and such at Greenman you can potentially end up getting it for a decent price with trade in value + a discount. It's Steamworks so it will activate on Steam anyway.

So does anyone have any recommendations for Fallout New Vegas DLC?


They are all actually fairly decent but I would put Old World Blues as the best and Dead Money as my least favorite with the other two somewhere in between. That seems to be the general consensus as well.

Guys, if you're in the US, then the daily that is unavailable is always the indie bundle for the day. This has happened every day for the first few minutes. Give it a bit and it'll sort itself.


Yes.

And yes. :cry: It's good for anyone that's missed these deals, but this is by far the weakest set of dailies I've ever seen - because literally 2/3 are repeats, sometimes more than once (IIRC).

Well maybe they could announce ahead of time that every flash sale will eventually be a daily (not sure if this is 100% true) and it'd take the sting out of things cause you could choose to just check the store once a day and not deal with these repeats. Those who are into it could still try to grab flash deals instead of waiting to pop up in a daily later in the week.

Crazy Question I have all the Fallout content except Mothership Zeta. Which I believe is downloadable only. I only ever got out of the Vault so I'm in the beginning stages of the game. Is Mother ship Zeta worth it? It's $9.99 on GFWL and the GOTY is $5 on steam. Seems like a no Brainer but I've heard mixed reviews on MZ and maybe I can just skip it.


Just be careful with MZ. When I was only a few hours into the game I was abducted. Never got of the ship. Could just be me though.

It's okay to admit you have a problem. ;)

At least I been buying good games this sale. I would go get some help if I started buying stuff like 18 Wheels of Steel. I decided to grab F3 GOTY.

So my purchases this sale so far are...
Fallout 3
Midevil II Total War
Rome Total War
Thief 1&2
Fortune Summoners
Railworks (the $4 Deluxe Edition)
Stacking
Prince of Persia Sands of Time
Monkey Island: Special Edition
Q.U.B.E.
Sam & Max Complete
Alice Madness Returns
Toy Soldiers
Half Life 1
Legend of Grimrock

So I spent $64.5 and I got all of that. Now with that said though $50 of that did come from my GF repaying me for stuff she owed me like concert tickets among other things so it's not too bad.

80% of the Steam sale seems to be a variation on one of these comments.

1) Rehashed sales are bullshit.
2) I missed the previous 75% off deal for this game. Good thing it went cheap again.
3) The indie bundle isn't available in my country? Motherfucker! Oh, there it is.
4) Everyone voted wrong.

Yes, that's what I paid for it at that time.

Strange, at the time I passed on it without much trouble but this time it's more appealing to me. I think I'll still pass tho cause I've only played 2 chapters of the first game and then got distracted.

You are asking the wrong people. I own Fallout 3 and all the DLC on the 360 and the base game on GFWL, but I still bought the GOTY edition on Steam so I can toy around with mods and what not.


Right there with you.

I bought FO3 when it first game out for the 360 for 40 on ebay. I completed it and bought the GOTY, installed the dlc, and flipped it for a loss of 5 dollars or so. Then I bought the GOTY on steam last Christmas for $7.50 but I still haven't installed it.

I like FO3 but this is verging on insanity.

I thought it was pretty fun to play through, but I really enjoyed the whole game and all the DLC. For this price you really can't go wrong.

Yes, that's what I paid for it at that time.

In before someone predicts that every day between now and the 23rd, there will be at least 10 posts in this thread decrying the mystery sale game that is inexplicably not available in the poster's region.


Probably! I only posted because it had not happened to me yet. I know now.

You don't know what your missing though. I mean a trucker simulator with a built in Skynyrd station and a cowboy hat on the dash. Where you have to go the speed limit and obey stop signs,stop lights and making sure your turn signal is on all while driving on a virtual freeway...

Also Ys seems to be doing well for a retro RPG so Skies would probably also.

For better or worse, Ys has the advantage of being a PC-friendly series; both Oath in Felghana and Ys Origin were released as PC games first (ETA: IIRC, Origin has only been released for PC). Getting SoA on Steam would take a lot more work.
