    MURDER ALL RAPPERS

Yeah nothing is really interesting me game+price-wise. Only Dead Rising 2 at $7.50, did anyone bite on that? and Limbo - which I'm assuming will be in an Indie bundle sometime, or at least has been. Basically, is it a good time to get it or should I wait for a bundle.


It was in Humble-5 back in June.

Anythoughts on the Overlord series and The Club? Was thinking of picking up both based on price.


Overlord is a very poor man's Pikmin. It has all the flaws of Pikmin and none of the charm.

Any opinions on Haunted House? Is it just a kids game?


I'd be interested in opinions on this one too.

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

I'm going to pick up Vampire but I'm going to wait until October 31 and see what Amazon has to offer.

Am I right to assume the deals we're seeing today are the same deals throughout the sale? As in no new deals in the next couple days?

This has probably been asked already, but are they having a new set of discounted games tomorrow and the day after?

It's a remake of the Atari 2600 game.

It doesn't really appear to necessarily be a kids' game.

Though, to be honest, I don't think it's a game that actually has an audience.

I'm not sure why it exists.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record - why's it rated so much lower? ain't it essentially the same game w/ improvements & more?

Damn, was hoping for a better price on Alan Wake. Might still pick up Home, though.

Still wish DS1&2 had a pack for $7.50.


If you are ok with Origin, Amazon with have DS1&2 for $7.50 on Halloween.

You can probably get away with base Overlord for $1.50. The expansion doesn't really add anything great nor does the sequel introduce any new or compelling gameplay mechanics. And I personally think the engine is worse. If you find yourself enthralled with it those games go on sale for 75% or more every major sale (so, you can pick them up in Nov/Dec). Of course you'd end up paying more by not getting the bundle but... again... that's only in the rare instance you find yourself wanting more past the first game.




That's anyone's guess but, imo, if you've waited this long just wait until the Holiday sale and see if it dips to 75% off.


Thanks for the input. I think I'll go with your suggestion and try the first one for now. I know it's not a big price difference between getting that and the whole set, but I that difference can be used to get another great game. Not sure what Amazon has coming up, so I'll want to save every dollar I can.

Retrospectively, when you can look at them now and get them for similar prices, yes.

At the time it was another example of Capcom releasing full price expansion content on disc that could easily have been a piece of DLC. I think that rubbed a lot of people the wrong way.

Home is in the current Indie Royale. You may want to check that bundle before springing for just Home.

Prototype for $4.99 look good, i have already play the game on console, but any info about the PC version is welcome.

Fuck Yeah!!!!!! I promised my boy I'd get Prototype as soon as it went 75% off!!!!
Wanted to buy Prototype 2 but he reminded me of my mantra, wait for 75% off. I guess 7 year olds do listen sometimes.

Damn, Dead Space 1 and 2 for $4.99 each? If I didn't already own both on console I'd buy the Fuck outta those.

Really wish there was a demo for Dead Rising 2 as I don't want to buy it and run into issues...



Well, as far as Dead Space is concerned, don't panic. They'll be this price for pretty much every major Steam sale here on in.

Anyone have any experience using a pre-paid VISA to purchase things on Steam?

Tried to add/use one for a Left 4 Dead 2 four-pack last night. Attempted to complete the transaction, and I got an error that the billing address didn't match the card's records, tried re-entering everything again, and was denied a 2nd time for the same reason. To add insult to injury, I now seem to be missing ~$30 from the cards online balance, but of course I received no email receipt from Steam (plus no game added to my account) AND the transaction history for the weekend hasn't been updated (just the balance is displayed).

Currently Playing:
:ps3: Netflix

:360: GTAV ; Metal Gear Rising
:pc: Red Faction

:wii: n/a

:ds: Found my DS!

I'm awfully tempted to pick up the Fallout GotY editions, but I have a feeling they'll be cheaper during the winter sale. Hard to hold off, though.

Anyway, I picked up:

Dark Fall: Lost Souls
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. CoP + SoC
Scratches
Limbo
Lone Survivor

Damn, had to pick up Scratches Director's Cut. Woohoo

I'm playing through Alice: MR now and never played the first one. It's not as though there's a hard-to-follow story; you're traveling through a jacked-up version of Wonderland and piecing back memories of what happened the night your family died in a fire.

I have about 12-13 hours in the game and am maybe 50% done. This is because I spend more time exploding into a cloud of blue butterflies than I spend actually playing. Not voluntarily, mind you. I just suck :D

The butterflies kept me entertained for hours.
Now gonna go purchase the bread chalupa game everyone is talking about, tired of seeing it show when I search Steamgifts.

Only buy games during this sale if:

1. You must play it now!

2. It's 75% off or more.

3. The game doesn't have a sequel or DLC coming out soon that could lead to a price drop.


Besides, there is a good chance that they could be cheaper in about a month and 20 days.

Yeah, I couldn't believe it when I saw that either. Activision actually discounted Prototype by 75%? Impossible.

It was pretty low on my wishlist, but I had to pick it up while I could at $5. Lord knows when it'll see that price again.

I want to get Prototype but I can't talk myself into it. I had and beat it for the ps3, and while its $5, I just can't see it being close to the top of my backlog with all the other games waiting in line. But it also might not hit $5 again for a while. :/ I think I'll pass but I am a weak man. For now I am just going with Dracula Origin for now.
