Speaking of fascinating cultures, I absolutely do not understand why Binary Domain gets loads of word of mouth praise and Inversion does not. They are both games of similar quality. I enjoy them both and really couldn't pick one over the other. Inversion's plot does kinda suck and it doesn't give the boss fights as much TLC as BD but apart from that...


I will take that as a recommendation. I wanted to pick it up from GameStop when they had it for $10 but I couldn't really find anyone with anything to say about it on here. I actually think the color pallet would be more appeasing to my eyes over Binary Domain. Inversion looks more like Gears color scheme, which I enjoy. Thanks.

Railworks 2013 pre-order is now in the registry. Get ready for the next bit of simulation silliness.

There's also a new listing for a Linux Steam beta. That I am interested in.

Anyone know what time the Humble Bundles typically go live? Around 8 am Pacific?

Early on in Gemini Rue when the combat mechanic was introduced I thought it was simple and kind of cool. But then the fight in the weather tower was really getting on my nerves. I kept timing the headshot mechanic perfect but I would somehow miss completely. I died there about 8 times before making it through.

Edit: You mention the Blackwell Trilogy, but I see it as four games on Steam. Is there 1 that's not part of the trilogy or just an inferior game, or just a simple mistake on your part?

The first fight was probably the toughest one for me since they hadn't introduced the mechanism of aiming the other direction yet. That mechanism actually made it possible to hit the enemy without timing it perfectly or getting hit.

As for the Blackwell Trilogy, I only have the first three from an Indie Royale bundle. Next sale I'll probably pick up the fourth though.

Recently, 10am pacific or 1pm eastern. Same time as the steam new deals.

Trials Evolution coming to PC! It would be a good match for Steam given that HD is there and they also want to include leaderboards and user-made content.

Trials: Gold Edition will include both Trials Evolution and Trials HD, resulting in over 120 tracks, in early 2013. The package will also include console features such as leaderboards, user-made content and online multiplayer.

And unlike on XBLA, it'll be published by Ubisoft instead of Microsoft Studios. I assume that means no GFWL and with Ubi's recent announcement, no always-on DRM.

Half Minute Hero provided a lot of charm and entertainment for a while. I personally think the $9.99 asking price isn't worth it, but that's because I didn't think any of the bonus "30" modes were that fun (I beat all 4 plus Hero 3 mode or whatever, which was excellent). I'd wait til it's $5 personally.

I am guessing $5 at winter sale or maybe even $2.50. I want to get it but of course I am following the rules of Steam so I will wait for the sale.

So much to keep up with, but the wonder that is GW2 keeps me so busy anymore. In all honesty, between GW2, the pending release of Borderlands 2, and my ginormous backlog I am seriously considering cancelling my Gamefly sub. Seems like a waste at this time.

The collection with all DLC is $7.49

This. I just finished Duels of the Planeswalkers 2012 a week or so ago (every achievement except the multiplayer ones) and am eager to get started on 2013. ><

On a rather related note, eff you Archenemy. You will not be missed.

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

Now this is good. I was going to buy one DLC recently for $3.99, but getting them for .99 a pop is even better. Will definitely get the Ferry and Cruise DLC and check out the rest. Now I wish I hadn't bought Extremes alone, since the bundle for $7.49 is a super deal.

Dammit, Trine 2 dloaded an update over 1gb a few weeks ago. I assumed that was the goblin dlc and that it was free. ah well... Not like id be playing it right now anyways, since Guild Wars 2 is eating all my game time.

So tomorrow's daily deal at Gamestop is the Saint's Row the Third Complete Pack for 75% off - making it around $16-17 bucks.

Does anyone know if you get a separate Steam key for each item in the bundle? Tempted to buy it for the DLC and then just sell off the base game key.

Off topic of the sale but has anyone ever had a Steam key revoked?

Bought a key off here that originated from GMG. They ended up replacing the key a few weeks later and now my account says I own the game already but yet I cannot download the game (just stuck at 0%, Resume does nothing), it's not in my Library and the Store page shows I don't own the game.

Getting frustrated with email only support. Takes weeks to resolve something.

Never had this issue. Was it that whole Sleeping Dogs pre-order fiasco? Are you trying to get them to remove the game so you can add the replacement key they issued? Steam CS is slow slow slow. So you have to be persistent and keep emailing. Very frustrating process.
