If you guys had a Nexuiz 75% off coupon, that stacks with the sale price. The game might get cheaper this weekend, but they also might make it so the coupon no longer stacks. It makes the 4-pack $3.74. I have absolutely no idea how good the game is, but cheap is cheap and most of us just want to throw it in the backlog anyway, right?

May pick up Company of Heroes. Are both the dlc worth it, or just opposing front?


If you only care about campaign, get the base game + Opposing fronts. If you only care about multiplayer and skirmish games, you only need Tales of Valor.

I would say around $1 is what that game might be worth. Might be too much. lol. It's not bad, but far from great and with so many bugs (not sure if they have gotten fixed) it made even trying MP a challenge.

Might snap up the Darksiders season pass at that price. Though will wait to see if it the game gets a daily and see if the DLC also gets a deeper discount.

Hah! Thanks for the reminder. No doubt the coupon hasn't been updated yet to not stack.

I snagged the 4 pack if anyone is looking for it on the cheap.

I think it's great, the only problem with the game is that not enough people play it.

I didn't like Nexuiz, but I own it on 360. There's no story and very few things are ever explained. Graphics are on par with Halo 3, but the HUD and aiming reticles are flawed and random bonuses are given to players based on performance. There's also no penalty for camping because you're not invincible when you spawn. It tries to be Quake/UT and fails hard. Both of those franchises are better, and that's what people stick with.

I'd love Nexuiz for LAN arena FPSing, but the game bugs out to hell and bleeds away all graphics after a certain amount of time. (No, this one in particular is not a mutator. I've checked. D: ) As it stands, it's rather unplayable for me as a result. :C

Definitely wanting to get all that Darksiders 2 DLC, but going to wait and see if it somehow gets even cheaper this weekend. Still feeling a slight sting for getting Darksiders 2 from GMG. I know Steam games get cheaper, but it usually takes longer than this. ;o;

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

Agreed. From my time with Nexuiz I'd much rather play Quake 3/Quake Live (free)/UT (any) for similar gameplay and a better experience. It's been awhile, but two of my big complaints were it taking forever just to get into a game, which is a bad sign right after launch, and no mid-match joining. I'd sit around for 5-10 minutes before a game started, then someone would quit which would lead to someone else quitting who didn't want to play on mismatched teams. Then you were playing a 3-on-1 game trying desperately to find the one guy before your teammates did.

Buying an arena shooter for a console is silly. I can't even imagine it plays similarly.

So Darksiders II, how is the game, and how bad is the port?

Essentially how better of a sequel is it over the first game and well I heard bad things about the port. Is that true?

I haven't finished the game but I don't think its a bad port. They've patched in more options (though its been a month or so since I last got a chance to play it). The game ran smooth for me, looked good and never gave me any issues. I can't comment on the pc controls cause I used a 360 pad. As for the game itself, I feel it took what was good about the first game, made it better, and added in loot and a conversation wheel. Over all I liked it a lot more than I did the first game.

Now I have to decide if I save Darksiders II for Wii-U or pick it up now :lol:. I like the first game, and this sounds good.

Yeah, and Tropico 3 probably won't be the gold version. I bought the Oddboxx when it was 75% off, so I already have all of the Oddworld games. The $1 minimum is the best deal for me, especially considering I want X-Blades the most out of all the games included.

Its the Normal version of Tropico 3

one of the admins on the groupees site said that steam specifically put the "normal" version of tropico 3 on the store for this bundle.

The only game out of the bundle i was really really wanting is Strangers wrath but i dont feel like spending $5 for it when itll most likely be around the same price or cheaper during the steam sales this year.

Honestly, I'd wait. It will probably be $25 or lower again by the end of the year. I know I'm waiting for more details about the WiiU version. I know it will contain more content.
