Looks like the original Doom 3 version has been taken off the store and replaced with the more expensive, BFG edition.

Yeah, that news been making the rounds on major gaming website for news.
Only way to get Doom 3 [Original] + Doom 3: ROE [Original] from Steam is through the Id Super Pack ($100).

Was it Dark Souls that people said was a terrible, shameful port? Or Darksiders II? I know it was one of them Dark-somethin's.

Edit: Looks like it was Dark Souls, judging from Google.

Dark Souls, the dev had no experience with the PC. In fact, I heard that they thought people used actual live mice and cardboard with keys poked through it to access the internet and play PC games.

American Nightmare is overpriced wherever you go. It's one of those games where you get locked in a time loop and end up replaying the same few levels repeatedly while fulfilling different objectives, which is a nice marketing ploy to artificially increase the length of a game when you haven't produced enough game content. Mine was free, but I wouldn't pay more than $5 for it; it's disappointing in nearly every aspect in comparison to the first game.

Also, it's Gamestop.


It was also $3.75 somewhere. I can't remember where it was but I know I bought it for $3.75 and steamprices.com can confirm.

BOTH were slammed by many PC gamers b/c of their lack of PC features.

Dark Souls is supposed to REALLY take the cake, out-the-box (unmodded).
Many consider Dark Souls PC as 1 of the worst ports of all times b/c of flat-out laziness (locked at 1024x768 resolution; locked at 30 FPS; controller pretty much required to play it)....

Personally, I think Bully PC is the worst port I ever seen - b/c it just can be HELL just get running right. My Win XP would never run it (patched or unpatched), but Win 7 PC had NO PROBLEMS running it (patched).
I'll be able to see what I think of Dark Souls PC, once it goes on sale.

Durante's DSFix Mod has fixed most of people's Dark Souls PC concerns, though - namely w/ unlocking the resolution to...whatever you want.
Might wanna NOT use frame-unlocker feature or any program disabling G4WL when playing online - as that could cause a G4WL suspension/ban.

Weird. Bully ran without problems for me on PC back in the day (retail, $5) on my WinXP, X2-3800, 7900GT rig.

I wonder if popular verdict places the PC Port of Dark Souls worse than the PC Port of Saints Row 2.

DS was the signature bad port, but D2 was very shoddy in its own right. It only had two options for display, resolution and shadows, I think. The menus are console res. And you can't click on the map to fast travel you have to scroll a retilce over the target destination.

Some cheesy review site, ign maybe, reviewed DS:PTD including Durante's mod! They praised the sharper visuals and gave the game review scores as if the patch was part of the vanilla game. SMH

Bah! Steam keeps removing the items from my shopping cart. I'm assuming this is a problem with the update from today. Anyone else getting this issue? Near as I can figure it's around when I'm putting the 5th or 6th item in the cart that it does this.

The only reasonable deals on there are the Dead Space games and Alice Madness Returns for $5 each. I didn't see any good deals on Steam games.


Metro 2033 seems like a good deal for 4.99.
Waddles From Gravity Falls is best pony!

How is AvP?

Obviously nobody is playing MP anymore, but I'm more interested in the campaign. Any good for $3.75?

I think it's worth it, especially if you like the movies. There are a lot of small details that I like about the game, like how the sound effects for the alien screams and pulse rifle shots sound straight out of the movies.

I wonder when the Halloween sale will start. It started last year on the 27th, which was the Thursday before Halloween. Tomorrow will be the equivalent day. I recall there being a sale at least the past 2-3 years.

Dark Souls port was bad mainly because of the internal rendering issue. But thanks to this mod the game now looks amazing rendered at high res.

The one word of warning I will give for DS for the PC is, the m/kb controls are pretty bad for it, one of the very few games I actually use a controller for on the PC.

Not really, Steam's Halloween sale isn't really special, at least with the 2 previous years. Basically just a few days/week of horror/scary type games being on sale at a fix % off price with no special daily deal.

I liked it but then again I liked the old games and it's a lot like them. Story? Eh. MP? Eh. Three different styles of gameplay and some fun mechanics? Yup. If that's worth 3.75 go for it.

There is a plus in that a lot of the horror-themed games that go on sale are priced lower than in the summer/winter sales. The selection isn't the best, but the prices are pretty good.

I built my gaming PC last month, so I just started on my Steam library. I've purchased the majority of my games via GMG and Amazon DD thus far. I'm still not that familiar with whatever sales Steam has throughout the year aside from the Summer and this supposed Halloween sale.

The biggest sale of the year is the Winter sale that will be at the end of December/beginning of January. Lasts about 10 days.

My suggestion since you are just getting started is to look at steams big bundles, pick one or two, save for the winter sale, and buy them. During the winter sale those bundles can go for outrageous prices. I piecemealed it which is fine but not the cheapest way. With some googling you can find the sales from last year.
