I doubt Groupees. Maybe Indie Facekick if anything. They've proven time and again that they can land those hidden indie gems like a Skyrim.

I am considering getting the base Groupees Bundle of the Damned for the game Cryostasis. I would like to hear from fellow backloggers: Is the game fun for the first few hours? Because these days, if a game can't deliver fun value right away, it will stay in the backlog till eternity ... Thanks!

I like Legendary. I heard it was buggy but I haven't gotten to them I guess? Nothing like shooting at mythical creatures flying in the air.

I own Skyrim so if said deal did/did not happen, wouldn't matter to me. Actually I think everyone I know owns Skyrim :lol:.


I don't own it. Doesn't that make you feel bad? You can make it up to me by buying it for me ;)

Just wait for it to be in a bundle like the rest of us. They will probably make it one of those beat the average games though, bastards.

Is there a group yet for CAGs trying to ween themselves from the Deals forum? I have well over 200+ games in my backlog across multiple systems. I have to stop...but when I see good games for 75% off or more...I can't help myself. I try to rationalize by telling myself, "When the kids get older you'll have more time to yourself and you'll tackle that backlog." Meanwhile the backlog grows....


No. I used to feel the way you feel but then I realized that steam/CAG is more like a game itself. Gotta Buy Them All on sale. I now have no guilt about it. My wife has accepted it and doesnt even ask anymore when I tell her it was a deal and my eyes light up.

I have the perfect wifestyle. My wife actually really likes it when I play games and likes to watch.


Although there is money and someone should write a book series or comic with titles like:


How to get a gf and still play video games.
How to get into college and still play video games.
How to get a job and still play video games.
How to get a wife and still play video games.
How to have a kid and still play video games.
How to replace your hip and still play video games.

Gamefly. Use code BETATHANKS to get it for $11.99.

As far as I've seen, all copies that aren't directly from Telltale use Steamworks. The one on Gamefly does.

Walking Dead is Steamworks. It all requires Steam with the exception of copies purchased direct from Telltale.

If that was the beginning of a pornographic film, I would probably watch it.

Play the demo. I was sold within a few minutes and I wasn't even particularly interested in the game. Main character is likable and the game has a sense of humor.

Found this postlaunch review: http://postlaunch.bl.../legendary.html

Some of the quotes: "The basic premise of the game is pretty cool. Fight powerful mythological creatures with modern weaponry? Yes please!";

"I don't expect FPS games to be long. 8 or 10 hours is pretty normal. Legendary, however, was 4 hours long, at least for me. That's not a bad thing, as long as you know and expect it before you buy the game."

"Verdict: Legendary isn't a great game, but it's a competent (if short) shooter with a fun premise and some real badassery. It's only $10 on Steam, and probably less during sales. It's worth that much at least, and you'll have some fun with it."

With the verdict, I guess for a $1 ($.5 if you include Cryostasis), it can't be too wrong :)

I'm at the point with at the price point I buy games, unless it's an RPG I hope it's kind of short. If I'm paying a couple bucks for a game I want to to be a short, tight experience. RPGs, as I said, are the exception.

I'm gonna go ahead and be a total killjoyass here, but if you need help cutting down on adding to your backlog, try guilt. Think about how many hours you put into gaming versus actually productive activities. Like, what if the hundreds or thousands of hours Steam tells you you've played, were like, hours volunteered for the Red Cross.


I'd counter this by saying that the time I could've used to maybe help a charity possible help some unknown person in need was actually better employed by playing XCOM and actually saving the planet from alien invasion. No amount of charity work will do that.

It's all about seeing the bigger picture.

This does NOT register on Steam (it's SecuROM), but GamersGate today has Dead Rising 2 for $5.

If you have the 15% IGN discount + the BlueCoins reward it comes out to ~$4.05.

Lots of SP mods for Warband. And even unmoded, Warband is very fun single player.

I've played Warband single player and found it entertaining. I've described it before as sort of a cross between Medieval: Total War and Sid Meier's Pirates! It definitely has the whole "Just one more 'turn'" thing down.

I can't speak for the other two but everyone seems to agree that Warband is the strongest game anyway.

Obviously I haven't put enough hours into gaming if I still have this huge backlog.

Thanks. It looks like the cheapest Warband has been on Steam is $4.99, so to get the first 2 games as well for just an extra $0.63 sound like a great deal. I think I'll be getting it after all... as if my backlog wasn't huge already.

I like CS GO but I wish I held off on buying it. I bought it full price around release and have barely played it. I enjoyed the few hours I put into it so I can't complain. This might convince some of my friends to join me though.

I paid $7.50 a few months back and I've only played...er, 85 hours. Right. No complaint over not getting it cheaper here.

Needless to say, I rather like Mount & Blade, and I've only played single-player.

Thanks, that sounds very tempting. I would buy it right now if only I didn't have endless problems trying to order from GMG. Their support is pretty helpful, but they've already had to fix something in my account 3 times this morning and now it doesn't work again. For those who are having trouble with ordering I suggest to open a support ticket and they will take care of it, at least temporarily.
