I already know I'm going to love Hotline Miami but I'm like 95% sure it'll be $5 during the steam winter sale and I have a ton of games I need to play.

Conflicted.

Did you buy FTL? If you didn't buy FTL then you are indebted to good games and need to buy Hotline Miami. If you did buy FTL then you should have no problem paying cash money for Hotline Miami too.

Don't forget, the GameSpot promos are NOT Amazon Digital Exclusive deals; the promos include both Amazon Digital and Amazon Physical deals. In the case of Starcraft 2 [great deal btw], I would expect it's a physical deal.


I expect that it's probably the physical version, which (a) introduces shipping as a potential added cost and (2) means a multiple-day delay between purchase and play. Not that either of those factors are deal-breakers; they're just things that don't exist in a download-only environment.

I also have idea what the two games have in common.....other than the fact this man somehow agrees with me in thinking they are both fantastic.

Ten dollar, well received indie games with a simple, but nice 2D style and a focus on unique gameplay mechanics.

I guess you can say that about a lot of indie games, but for some reason I lump these two games together in my head, as well.

Crazy good price although the 'full shebang' package is $50 list on Steam which would take it to $12.50 if it goes to 75% off... which I have a pretty good feeling it will because THQ is poor and all.

Is this a good program? I've been thinking of getting one. Does it decode? Or do I still need something else for that?


Handbrake has handled all my DVD ripping needs for years. You will probably need to install VLC as well. VLC handles DVD playback as well. Both are FOSS. And remember kids, when you're downloading GPL, you're downloading Communism.

The humor, alone, is worth it (to me, anyway). It's a game full of mindless fun that doesn't take itself too seriously.

Assuming that it's run like they did last year, they will be on sale. In fact, last year they even price matched a few games that Steam had on sale. On at least one occasion, it was possible to get a game for free after coupon (Medal Of Honor).

Last year I had 7 coupons and I picked up the following. The price listed is after $5 coupon.

Duke Nukem Forever - $0.99
Crysis 2 - $4.99
The Sims 3 Deluxe (base game plus Ambitions expansion) - $16.99
The Sims 3: Generations - $12.99
Spore - $2.99
Dragon Age Pack (both DA1 & DA2) - $6.99
Crysis Maximum Edition - $3.99

Duke was free the second time it was on sale, listed as Mac version but came with a steam key.

It looks like Space Marine is what a lot of people are missing from the THQ pack, I'd like to throw my name into the pot as it's all I don't have (and want) from the bundle. If someone already has it and is planning on picking up the THQ pack please shoot me a PM.

It probably just flipped...What's great is that it works for nearly every DLC I've found so if you want anything on the Editor's Choice list, you can pick up a lower cost DLC for the $5. Of course, this is assuming the prices in Jan will be decent which it was last year.

Is there anyone who's played both FIFA Manager and Football Manager, and can review/compare/recommend? I like the price, but it's a little above my "impulse" range. (I'm also one of those dirty Americans who could only last about twelve seconds in a footy-centric conversation, so the learning curve is important.)

Thanks!


I would strongly nudge anybody towards the latter product.

If you're not on Windows:Phone Edition (aka Win8), get it now.

They're both jolly. SR3 is more a game you'll end up playing with mods ( http://idolninja.com/blog/?cat=10 , http://saintsrowmods.com/ ).

Guys, don't buy darksiders 2 season pass. THQ is the closer to bankruptcy than ever in the past. They could turn it around but it will be rough. If they file chapter 7, whoever picks up the parts will be under no obligation to honor the pass. Same thing if they go into chapter 11.

Uh-huh - THQ defaulted on a $50 million dollar loan. They're trying to work something out.
And also, UbiSoft is interested in possibly buying some of THQ's IP's, as well.

But the DLC the season pass cover are already out, you just get them cheaper with i guess, and the armor.

Hasn't all the season pass stuff been released already? I was under the impression it was 3 single player packs

THIS!!!

I bought SR: The Third earlier in Mid-July; AND Prototype Pack when last Friday when was part of the GameSpot-Amazon DVG Friday, as well.

I don't expect a $5 promo code b/c it was bought before this Promo hit - but, $5 coupon codes being sent our way would be a nice surprise! :D
