I'm going to drop in a quick recommendation for Cargo Commander. It's jumpy-aroundy-in-spacey puzzle fun and I've quite enjoyed it so far. Definitely one of the "hidden gems" of the sale.

I would bet it's new deals. The major sales, like the upcoming winter sale (?), are the ones that have had recaps in the past.

Better Borderlands 2 price for winter sale? I was looking for a 4-pack to get it at 22.50 but if it gets any cheaper for winter sale, I may just wait.

Seems like everything is better at the two major sales.

That being said, the winter sale is only weeks away, right? Not a huge price change between now and then, likely.

I probably won't add much to my cart at day's end. Winter sale is coming, after all.

Would someone mind posting the new flash deals?

I see Quantum Conundrum and Lone Survivor, but the 3rd one is not available in region (Puerto Rico). Just wondering if I should try to get it another way.

Thanks!

Workin on it

At first I thought you meant Carrier Command: Gaea Mission and was confused. After watching a video for Carrier Command I thought it looked really freakin cool, but probably too detail oriented and hardcore for me.

Cargo Commander looks interesting as well

Can anyone recommend the Quantum Conundrum DLC? It's only $0.74, but a man has to have a code.

I pre-ordered the Season Pass, but I really didn't like the Desmond Debacle, so I haven't even gotten around to trying IKE-aramba! (despite its excellent name). Desmond just had too much of the stuff I didn't love (jumping, jumping, jumping) and not enough of the stuff I did love.

Quick question, I have the vanilla DAO on Origin from when EA had that mess up a while back. I want to see how well the game plays on my pc before I get the ultimate edition (which I would get on steam). My question is if I play a few hours on DAO in Origin then go buy DAO:UE on steam, can I use the same save file?

I've gotten a lot this sale, but looks like a lot will be left for the holiday sale.

Been waiting for the Fallouts and X-Com collection to hit 75%, and was hoping for the GTA Pack to make an appearance. Hopefully during the Holidays I'll get lucky.

I want to see how well the game plays on my pc before I get the ultimate edition (which I would get on steam). My question is if I play a few hours on DAO in Origin then go buy DAO:UE on steam, can I use the same save file?

I....don't really know. I tried to keep my versions of DAO the same (EA-based).

My old saves from DAO + Awakening (Retail) work fine in DAO Ultimate (Origin).
I usually keep my saves and back them up elsewhere when I need to move them, just in case; then put them back in the save folder where they belong, if I need them back there.
I did this when I transferred my saves from my older PC to my newest PC.
i.e. Save folder for DAO on Win 7 is - C:\Users\{your user name}\Documents\BioWare\Dragon Age\Characters....

I have DAO + Awakening from Retail;
and DAO Ultimate from Steam and activated that key over Origin and the DLC key over BioWare Social.

Here's something you can do, since you already have Origin - it's basically what I did.

Buy DAO Ultimate on Steam.
Start Steam download of DAO Ultimate, at least.
Pause the download.
Right click on DAO Ultimate and get both of the game keys.
Activate the DAO Ultimate key on Origin.
Activate the DLC Key on your BioWare Social Account.

Make sure you have newest Patch (I think it's patch 1.05, IIRC) for DAO Ultimate - as it ends any of the DLC not activating properly issues from occurring.
Also, get Witch Hunt DLC's newest patch, as it fixes many issues there, as well.

EDIT:
Since I never activated DAO + Awakening (Retail) on my Origin account, I don't know about this (b/c this was before Origin became a thing). I only have activated DAO Ultimate on Origin.
Since you got DAO activated already on Origin, if you activate up on DAO Ultimate on Origin - I'm not sure if you'll be forced to re-download the entire thing (28 GB or so for DAO Ultimate) or if it'll just download what you're missing.

If not there, it'll be an Editor's pick in the Amazon January coupon sale so I can certainly wait that long.

Wait, why are people talking about repeats today? The sale ends Tuesday, meaning sales starting tomorrow are the final day. So if we have repeats, they'd be tomorrow, not today, right? (I believe sunday repeats are only for multi-week sales ala summer/winter sales. Final day repeats are more common for shorter sales, I think.)

Bioshock 1 and 2 as a pack were five dollars at Amazon and activate on steam (and might still be I didn't check) so there's no point in buying just 2.


Unless you already own 1. I don't know if Amazon gives out codes for the games individually.

Pretty much, yep. Stutters, slowdowns, crazy framerates drops all of sudden, game running in single digits - these were all nasty in the original Silverfall demo and full game - especially if you tried cranking the game-settings up like the Resolution and other graphical bells & whistles (like Shadows). Back then w/ the original Silverfall, you had to drop a lot of the graphical stuff down and res' down to keep it running decently. That's not even getting into the mediocre UI and the locked camera.

Earth Awakening fixed ALL of these issues. They reworked the whole entire engine, UI, and camera (they unlocked) all in Earth Awakening. Since they didn't plan to implement all of these fixes for the original game, that really hurt them, I think. It's sad Atari never opted to sell the expansion alone and/or repackage the game to sell it w/ Original Game + Expansion together in one pack. I can kind of understand Atari's point, since the game didn't sell well and was reviewed poorly - b/c likely the expansion probably wouldn't sell well, either. Though, it wouldn't surprise me if Atari made Monte Cristo kick it out-the-door onto the market too soon, as well - to try to capitalize on the major successes many games in the loot-driven ARPG genre. And/or with Monte Cristo, it wouldn't surprised me that Monte agreed to a release date and had such big scope for the game, that they couldn't get the technical stuff down properly by the time the game got its original release - a lot of times, these publishers don't budge much on release dates for a game if you agree to one, unless you're a big name or got a huge reputation the size of say Irrational Games Boston or Id Software.


I'm getting 30-45 FPS average with everything maxed out. Also tried the multiplayer LAN in tunngle with Seraphym and we got a lot of glitches/suttering. It was basically unplayable in LAN. Not sure how to fix it.

I almost bought Quantum Conundrum, but luckily I realized I already had a code for it before I did. Although I think this is a bad sign of my buying habits for steam... I might have a problem.

Badass game. I bought it on a whim and kept playing for 5 hours until 2 AM last night.

Highly recommend it at the 50% level.

Today is the last day of new deals. The Autumn Sale will terminate Monday 1 PM EST.

The Steam countdown clock clearly says the sale will terminate in just over 24 hours.
