I'm trying to get Vice City on steam, but when I add it to my cart it says 9.99, instead of 2.49. Anyone else having that problem?

no, got all gta games for like 12 bucks during the summer sale

Is this the first time it's been on sale? And what about Magicka?

Does anyone know if Hydrophobia Prophecy will go on sale?

It was $14.99 during the summer sale a few months ago so I would expect it to be a similar price or even lower for the winter sale.

Thanks for the info didn't know it was that low of a price during the summer sale can't wait! :)

Vice City was extremely tempting on the $2.50 deal yesterday but I passed 'cause I figured I'd wait for the GTA Franchise Pack for $12. Good move?

Ubi drops prices. It will always be cheaper.


You think it'll go lower than $5?

I think I'm gonna get AC1/2/Brotherhood. Is Brotherhood Deluxe worth the extra $2.50?...

Got Revelations from the TRU sale for $10.

I wouldn't expect more than 40% off until winter sale. I'm thinking nothing sub $10 at until summer. Of course, from what I hear, any sale is a good deal for this if you plan on playing it right away.

I didn't buy Walking Dead at $15 before because the game wasn't finished yet. I will buy it if it hits $15 soon. Reason being is I wanna play through all 5 eps at once, not just wait a month for shit and then forget half the story.

$12-15 will be what the GTA pack goes for IMO Holiday Sale.

Gamer's Gate Assassin's Creed last weekend deal was much better than this one

I got AC Brotherhood Deluxe (with all DLC) for $7.49 and Revelations Gold Edition (with all dlc packs) for $11.98.


Brotherhood Deluxe is $7.50 too.

I ended up picking up AC 1 and 2 as well as Brotherhood (non-deluxe, as it didn't appear to add much to the single player experience) and I'm looking forward to them. By the time I get through them Revelations should be 75% off, so no worries there.

My daughter has played all of these and she really likes them so I guess I'll give it a go. :D

Same boat, got a friend who's a History professor and he loves the AC series. I've always wanted to try it starting from the 1st one. & dunno about Brotherhood Deluxe or not. it's an important extra $2.50.

Sir_Fragalot - hope so! for $12 lol

GTA Complete is actually much cheaper in the UK store. So if you wait until it's 75% off, you can get a UK CAG to help you get it for something like $8. That's what I did during the 2011 Holiday sale.

So yeah, assuming that you wanted more than just Vice City, wise move on passing.

AC1 is repetitive as hell but the story is best there. AC2 gave us a better lead character but everything else was such a huge tonal shift that all the bad guys are basically cartoon characters.


I thought some of the early game bad guys were interesting and decently done.

AC1 is worth playing, as long as you do so first. Don't bother trying to get all the collectables--stick to the story. Enjoy the scenery and the coolness of climbing and jumping all over the cities. Then move on to the better games.

Interesting. I guess I should just go into their Regional thread lol. Unless someone here is from the UK.

Dishonored is worth replaying at least to try swordfighting the whole game. The combat has a sort of brutal satisfaction to it, and the way Pendleton finally shows emotion in the final level makes him sound like a completely different character. Plus, the final battle on High Chaos is a puzzle akin to the rest of the game: Almost a half dozen different ways to clear it depending on what powers you're packing or how diligent you are at exploration.

Subsoap accounts are now live. On a whim I just checked out their page and saw that the option to create an account. I have redeemed my IB key.

I saw no announcement email and found no mention of it when I searched the thread. I have no idea when it happened.

There's a new Halloween themed game in my account that should have playable builds later this month.

http://www.subsoap.com/

edit: It looks like the relaunch came out about a month ago.

Just redeemed mine too, glad I went back to read the pages I skipped to catch up lol

Disagree. It isn't. It's not great either. Best one-line-description I can give is that it's like mini-managing your own MMO group (tank/healer/damage dealer) but it's a bit grindy.

Wait for 75% off if you're tempted.



Agreed with your... disagreement. It doesn't really play like Diablo/Torchlight it plays more like a hero-based RTS sort of like some of those Warcraft 3 mods. Also agree that it has many flaws. Also also requires Win 7/DX 10 in case anyone is running on an old laptop or desktop or whatever.

I want to throw in my confirmation, as well - That is definitely the best move. I recall paying about $7.50 for the GTA Complete pack several sales ago, which included GTA3, Vice City, and San Andreas along with the original two. (I don't believe GTA: London, 1961 ever made it to the PC.) Definitely, you'll get more value from the Complete Pack.

Now for a related but different question. I own AC2/ACB retail and the keys are tied to my Uplay account. If I were to pick them up on steam would I be able to give my steam cdkeys to someone along with my retail copies and they play that way? I don't really want to have two copies on uplay and I would like to get them on steam, especially since the retail packages don't add anything.

I wouldn't see why not. Your steam cdkeys wouldn't be tied to anything other than your steam account, but ubi wouldn't know that. so when the other person uses them on their uplay account it would then be there's, and I doubt ubi cares where you get the data (disc or steam) and just care about you having the key.

Why not just redeem the steam keys you have?
I don't think your question makes sense to me.
It sounds like you have steam redeemable keys but you want to buy directly from steam and give the keys you already have to someone else.

No he owns retail keys for the games which are tied to his uplayd account. He wants to buy additional copies on steam so I'm assuming he doesn't need to keep track of the physical media. He would then give the keys he receives on steam to his friend that would use the CDs to install the game and they keys to tie to their uplay account.

I was thrown off by "give my steam cdkeys." He is referencing the uplay keys that steam gives you. I think I got it now.

Exactly. When I get around to it I'm going to compare the formatting of the keys with a friend's copy to see if they're noticeably different. I'm not in any rush since they'll always go on sale again, and technically I could redownload them from uplay, but that's yet another client.

It doesn't look like GameTap really has... sales...

Deciding between picking up some Civ5 DLC or waiting for the XCOM DLC to hit and snagging that for whatever discount 5$ will put it at. (It CAN'T be more than 10 when it comes out, right? From the announcement today it sounded pretty paltry...)

I just picked up Yakuza 4 PS3 for under four bucks at a KMart, so you actually make it sound like finding decent games for GameTap's $5 voucher is easy with that comparison. ;)

Tempted again by the BioShock 2-pack. Have both on disc, played a few hours into the first one and intend to get back to them some day. Just not sure I "need" them on Steam.
