Will this be the cheaper way by buying those on Gamefly and then the remaining games from the valve complete pack on the winter sale individually rather than just buying the Complete Pack for $50? Btw will it be $50 on black friday sales?


It might be $25 again. :D This brings up another IMPORTANT STEAM SALE RULE!

If a game price is discounted pretty heavily or if the prices seems "crazy", BUY THAT MOFO FAST AS HELL!!! it's probably a GLITCH and will be CORRECTED eventually. This will then lead to pages of people pissed they missed the "glitch". ;)


Is there a reason to purchase "Half Life 2" and then both "Half Life 2: Episode 1" and "Half Life 2" Episode 2"?

I know it should be common knowledge, but I never played them before.


Yes, you can then be like the rest us that have been patiently waiting for Episode 3 since.....too damn long...:censored:

Is GTA complete worth it? I've heard bad things about the PC port. I got like half way through on 360 and loved it.. I really just want to try the icenhancer 2.0 mod more than anything else but would like to hear a 2nd opinion for those who have played it (and preferably that mod too)


I've heard that the optimization issues are fixed. I think I might finally play through the expansions after I finish Costume Quest and Oblivion.

I picked up Half-life 2 and parts 1 and 2. Do these usually come with Deathmatch, Lost Coast, and Deathmatch Source because they are now in my library?

It's good to see another CAG that decided to play Costume Quest around the applicable holiday. I just finished the main game, and I'm currently working on the DLC scenario. (Humorously enough, the DLC scenario seems to be appropriate for the upcoming season.) So far, the game's been perfect for getting my mind off work.

Now, I just have to get my mind off my Steam backlog.

Yeah, those are basically freebie throw-ins. Lost Coast is about a twenty minute tech demo of sorts that show off the Source upgrades between HL2 and the episodes.

I had been wanting to play it for awhile and I wanted to finish it by last Wednesday but I got too busy with other things.

That's what I've heard about the DLC. Maybe, I will get through the main game and save the DLC for December...

Try to just ignore that hideously long list. :lol:

Thanks. I thought that was the case but was surprised to see them selling Deathmatch for 4.99 by itself.

Yes. I got my personal TL2 steam key from them. The only version of TL2 that isn't steam is directly from the devels IIRC. Steam will have the nice advantage of getting the Mac version when it is released.

I feel like everybody that posts here already knows what to expect. It's not like anyone stops in to complain about us not talking about relevant deals. At least not as often as every other thread on the deals forum.

Changing the thread title might not be a terrible idea, just for accuracy, but it's pretty much just thread regulars here when there isn't a major seasonal sale going on, so I don't know if there's much of a point.

I've been playing through Hotline Miami this week, having bought it at launch.

It's fun and frustrating in equal measure. It's effectively a puzzle-murder-em-up, trying to work out the quickest/quietest/quirkiest way to clear a floor of victims* without getting killed.

You have 1HP. That's it. So you can't just outlast the opposition, you really need to kill them before they kill you. To quote Major Dick Winters, "Speed is the key".

I like it, but can only play 1-2 levels at a time. It reminds me of Super Meat Boy in that you'll do ever so well, die, then repeat but at a less patient pace and you'll die again, and again, and again, until eventually everything just clicks and you get that smug feeling of satisfaction about nailing everybody in quick succession.

I imagine we'll see it at 50% off sometime around Xmas so put it on your watchlist if you feel tempted. It's cheap enough that a 33% discount might even be enough for some people.

It's in my top 5 game experiences for the year. Don't let the wacky hallucinogenic graphics put you off, you'll tune out of them soon enough. It just comes down to you, the pool cue, that guy behind the door with the shotgun, and the amazing soundtrack.

Go kill somebody.

Hotline Miami is available now on STEAM.

* - if you're in a moral quandary and need motivation, they all look like gangsters and probably deserve to die for past indiscretions. Apart from Steve**, he's just an innocent bytander you just bludgeoned to death with a frying pan.

** - if it bothers you, Steve dodged a parking ticket seven years ago.

Origin isn't half bad now. It's still not Steam so I will never use it for anything not EA related but I mean it's alright.

Got in on that $8 Lego Batman 2 Deal. Never played a lego game so I am excited to play this. Ok, lets be realistic here, I am excited to own it now but it will get lost in my backlog a week from now and about 2 months later I will remember oh yeah, I bought this :lol:. Like Binary Domain, Chronicles of Riddick, etc...

I don't know if this has been posted yet, but Postal 2 was Greenlit. I saw some copies on Steamgifts and read a description, it said it was a Steam key from Desura. I went to my Desura account and saw nothing, so then I clicked "Install" and after Postal 2 starts Installing/DLing you can then right click on the game in your games list and click on "View CD Key" once you do this you should get a Steam key for Postal 2 Complete! Just activated mine :)

I know lots of us got Desura keys in bundles. One of my favorite games so I don't mind having it on Desura, Steam, and Boxed :)

If you took part in the promotion to get the game on Steam, you will need to register and contact the Running With Scissors team and request your key. Here are the instructions: http://steamcommunit...50398919161255/

They cross-check your information, so don't bother trying if you didn't contribute to getting the game on Steam. I don't seem to have the game on Desura, so here you go.

EDIT: I found my Postal 2 Complete code for Desura. It was in Groupees Be Mine 3, and I hadn't activated it. Go to your Groupees accounts and copy/paste your code here, follow Fox's instructions, then redeem your CD key on Steam.
