Was The Amazing Spiderman ever on Steam? I could've sworn that it was.


Announced and then never happened if I recall correctly.

Looks like Borderlands 2 is getting a lot of hardcore regional restrictions http://www.reddit.co...etting_our_own/

While it's not giftable anymore I don't know if that applies to copies purchased before the change so may want to keep an eye out if you're trading for it.

I was reading in a guide on Reddit that when they change restrictions for a game they make a new product number for it, they don't ever change the restrictions on an existing product. So if you have a region free one it should remain region free. I read that here.

From the look of that thread it seems that my comment may not be relevant.

The Winter Wolves bundle has added Spirited Heart as a bonus goal for 1,000 bundles, which I do think they can hit. I don't think there's any way they're going to hit 5,000 bundles, so if you decide to put in the $10 to get Planet Stronghold no matter what, you're getting 7 VN/Life-Sim games for $10 ($1.43 per game, folks!).

No, they don't have Steam keys now, but several of them are on Greenlight, and Winter Wolves will be giving out Steam keys for the games that make it to those who buy the bundle.

Is Planet Stronghold worth the extra $5?

They also changed the run time of the bundle from 8 days to the standard 2 weeks, so there's a chance that the 5k mark will be hit.

You can always add more to your purchase later on if you want Planet Stronghold and the goal isn't hit.

Finally managed to beat it on Easy (I know right?) with an Engi ship and probably spending way too much time in nebulas earning scrap. I do agree that RNG is rather unkind in this game. Especially the events that just kill off one of your crew members.

That is kind of the point of the genre though...

In a more old-school roguelike, you would have to be the luckiest person alive to beat it in the first week of release, and a lot of people never beat them.

Well, you're halfway there. In a really good roguelike, you have nearly limitless options at any given time. Even in a no win scenario you can drag it out so that killing you is harder than nailing jello to a wall.

In FTL, the basic gameplay is really simple. Almost every event is just a random chance "crew dies/ship loses 10 hull" or "you get a weapon/scrap" if you don't have the right blue option crew/ship. Worst part is that the game is quite easy for 90% of it, with only the final boss being particularly difficult and THAT'S relying on if you got lucky with the weapon drops through the game.

So I preordered Dishonored off GMG, not knowing much other than it was steampunk deus ex. After watching a 3 minute gameplay trailer, I was almost creaming my pants excited for the game. :lol:

It might be cheaper to get a boxed copy of Dishonored, as it's Steamworks anyway. You can already pre-order for ~US$44 delivered from the UK (includes DLC, too), so I can only imagine there will be better deals closer to release. Not to mention you'd pay on dispatch, instead of when ordering.

I got a copy at Green Man Gaming for $45.

Green Man Gaming was the cheapest with the 25% off coupon and since Amazon could not get a DD preorder so I bit there.

Well... the cheapest was actually in my link. ;) (I know GMG have it without the DLC for $45, but boxed + DLC + shipping is still cheaper if you can wait a week)

I'm not suggesting for you to cancel and re-order from the UK. That link was just an example of how cheap it is already, and it's likely that other retailers to have it cheaper before release. And given the team's pedigree, will it just be a box with a Steam code and a DLC code and nothing else? Might be artbooks and soundtracks etc, like Dark Souls and Endless Space.

I'd certainly advise people to wait on this one.

That's the way people are on SG. They get into huge arguments/accusations when they "suspect" something is fake. Then they get really mad and upset when you've "wasted" the free virtual points you earn on the site.

There's a ton of cool people there who do giveaways for whatever reason, but a few of them are bad apples.

Edit: Daily Deal is Rochard at $3.39 - sign of things to come in a bundle?

FWIW, I bought Rochard when it was $5 and enjoyed it a lot. I put almost 10 hours into it, I think... And I wasn't trying to get all the collectibles, etc. so it has a decent length. The gameplay mechanics are also interesting/fun - you play around with gravity, lasers, and so on.

Worth $5 IMO, and DEFINITELY worth $3.39.

I bought Rochard off PSN when it was $5. I still need to try that out sometime :lol:.

I also am proud of myself. I made a gaming list of the order I am going to be playing my games in the next two months.

Borderlands 2 then Dishonored or Darksiders (depending on how long B2 takes because I need to play Dishonored day 1), then after I finish both of them Rayman Origins.

One of my favorite indie titles. Got Rochard in the IGN Prime deal and it was well worth the play through. Story was fantastic as was the physics based, puzzle solving gameplay.

It doesn't seem like a coincidence that Rochard is a daily deal today. I bet they're trying to get a few more sales in before the Humble Bundle starts (if it's included in it, which seems somewhat likely). Could be an indication that the Humble Bundle starts monday.

It's a good game, but I would hold off on buying it due to that.
