Well I guess I'll get on the bandwagon too, for winter sale only:

Amazon:
SR3: Full Pack $2.50
THQ Pack $5
2K Shooter Pack $5
Civilization V: Korea and Ancient World Combo Pack $1.87
Darksiders 2 DLC - Mortis $.32
2 x Nexuiz $2
Spec Ops: The Line $2.50
Hotline Miami Free
Total: $19.19

Steam:
Serious Sam HD 1 $2.25
Serious Sam HD 2 $3
Roller Coaster Rampage $2.50
Magnetis $.50
Doom Rails $.75
Sniper Ghost Warrior Gold $2
Total: $11

Of course, if you go through earlier in December and all of November, I have probably another $100 spent on Amazon (bought multiple copies of pretty much all the random bundles) and maybe $10 on steam.


How did you buy SR3: Full Pack for $2.5?

Amazon:
Hotline Miami @ $4.99 (I know! :wall: )
Harry Batman Pack $13.99 (This was a great deal on things that me and Mrs. Gatsby LOVE)
Lego Batman $4.99 (Can't miss the first one!)
Assassin's Creed Brotherhood Deluxe Edition $2.49 (coupon to burn, great price, disappointed its not Steam but I'll survive, somehow...)
The WTF Pack $4.99 (used the coupon 'cause I already had Borderlands GOTY from the Steam Summer Sale, wanted Duke and The Darkness II was a welcome bonus.)
Sega Genesis Classic Game Pack $4.87 (This I was a little miffed about. I had bought most of these in the spring and had e-mailed Customer Support a few days prior to buying this when I saw Steam keys were now available, but didn't get a response. Its worth it, though, for not having to download 50 individual Sega Genesis games.)
Microsoft Xbox Wireless PC Controller $38.01 (Technically not a DVG, but it was definitely inspired by all the stuff I picked up on Amazon coupled with Steam Big Picture.)
Dreamcast Pack $4.99 (This was pretty cool. My DC gets no love. It's like that elderly aunt you really adore but can never seem to find the time to actually visit.)
Dead Island Game of the Year Edition $5.99 (I bought the regular version on Steam like the day before it went GotY. I was a little pissed, but I've heard enough good things about it that I figured, hell, $6 is less than the DLC.)
Scribblenauts Unlimited $7.49 (I don't know why we decided to get this. It was a random impulse, and it just clicked that I'd heard a lot of good things about Scribblenauts and it seemed the most laptop-friendly. This was probably the best purchase of the bunch, surprisingly, as its great for two people to be playing curled up in bed on a cold winter night.)
Hotline Miami @ $0 x5 (Didn't see anything else to use my coupons on - and I still have a bunch of $5 EC coupons left!)

Steam (Note: 99% of the time, I buy Steam games and keep them in my inventory in the event that they are later released in some kind of package or deal on a key, I can easily trade the spare and the Inventory games tend to have more clout when trading. Also, I've been rapidly turning the GameStop credit I got from taking in my console stuff and some light flipping into Steam Wallet, so not spending "real" cash helps. Don't worry, I love trading to Amazon, too, but there were some promotions I was taking advantage of for the trades.):
Star Wars Knights of the Old Republic II $2.49 (I still haven't played it and I loved the first one.
Sonic Hits Collection Holiday 2012 $29.99 (I should have bought this from Amazon, I know, five bucks less, but credit. Kind of kicking myself now, actually.)
Alice Madness Returns $4.99 (Five bucks and NOT on Origin. And I traded my PS3 copy for $20 GS -> SteamWallet, so I appreciated the circle of flip.)
Galactic Civilizations IV $4.99 (I was probably drunk and talking to someone who was raving about how good this genre was and how this game was one of the best. Should have passed.)
Oblivion Game of the Year $4.99 (I have Skyrim to play, why do I do this? Good price for a good game with tons of content. I need to stop spending time buying and talking about games I buy and just play them.)
The Witcher 2 $7.49 (I should have waited but I really want to play this, but I want to play the first one first, but I want it ready for when I play it.)
Lucasarts Adventure Bundle $4.99 (Its close to the end of the sale, its not going to be a flash deal, half price is fine because a dolla twentyfive each is a great deal for classic LucasArts stuff. I really want to play the Dig, I remember getting halfway through it and not finishing it when I was younger.)
Overlord Complete Pack $4.99 (I wanted this after getting rid of my Xbox before playing them, and this was my sweet spot for the games).
Sid Meier's Civilization III Complete, Magnetis, Roogoo, Bumbldedore $3.71 (because I read someone's guide to Steam sales that had a direct link to games sorted by price and these all had 90%-ish discounts).

Also:

greenmangaming:
Spec Ops $5 (People raved about how great it was, so I picked it up, then Tony made it really cheap on Amazon. KICKING. MYSELF.)
Civ 5 Gods& Kings $3 (I had most of the strategy bundle and just wanted to grab this.)

gog:
Dungeon Keeper 1 & 2 $6 (DK is one of my all-time favorites and they patched it so it works now.)
Halloween Bundle (Been in the mood for old school adventure games lately!)

That's my recap. Holy crap, I spent a bunch.

To curtail my spending on games, my New Year's resolution was to kick an extra $5 into my IRA for every game I buy after 1/1/13. So, this is going to be costing me a lot extra.

Includes all game purchases from November through present.

Ignoring November, it's a closer race.

Still Steam, but it's practically even.

Not sure why. Perhaps games that Amazon doesn't have, or the flash deals that Amazon won't match?
But I definitely picked up a lot of games-as-gifts from Amazon. Great deals, even if I already had most of the games. Had to create a spreadsheet to keep track of all my CD keys that I haven't given away yet.

Why is it so easy to buy games, but not always so easy to give them away??

On the off chance that this all may go into the great Amazon super-computer and help make things even better, I'll contribute and post my November/December haul.

One thing I notice as I look through my Steam purchases... almost all of them are low $$ impulsive purchases. Two reasons why so much of that happens at Steam: I have credit there and they do a really good job of organizing and presenting their stuff so that it's (unfortunately/fortunately) easy to find deals and things that relate to my other purchases.

Interesting fact: WiiU and 3DS games are digital, too. In fact, video games are digital games. We can use "digital" to separate them from tabletop games, board games, real sports etc.

"Digital" is not a synonym for "download" unless you're a terrorist. ARE YOU A TERRORIST? :boxing:

Purchase lists you say... well I only had a few humble bundles on my Steam account prior to the past few weeks, as steam showed up just after I switched over to consoles for a decade or so there aside form Starcraft. So with a new PC and ancient consoles I bought quite a bit (well, by what I intended anyway).

Amazon
Bioshock 1/2 $Free w/ EC
Darkness II, Borderlands GotY, DNF $5 bundle w/ EC
Dark Souls $13
Dremcast 5 game bundle $5
Hotline Miami $Free w/ EC
Nexuiz $1, mostly to get an EC coupon
Tomb Raider Anniversery $2.5
Total War Bundle $21.70
used an EC code for a friend.

Steam
Alan Wake $5
Chivalry $12.50
Civ V $7.50
Commandos Collection $3
Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition $7.50
Fear $2.50
GTA Collection: 1, 2, 3, VC, SA, 4 + DLC $12.50
Mark of the Ninja $7.50
Mass Effect $5
Mirror's Edge $5
Orc's Must Die Franchise $8.75
Prince of Persia '08: $2.50
Splinter Cell: Conviction $5
Star Wars: KotoR $2.50
Star Wars: KotoR II $2.50
The Witcher $2.50
The Witcher 2 $7.50

GMG
Batman: Arkham City GotY -$5.25
Civ V: G&K $3.25
Deux Ex: AE $5.25
Devil May Cry 4 $4.76
Spec Ops: The Line - $5.25
Sleeping Dogs $3.90 (after $8 GMG credit toward the above)
Sonic Generations $5.25
X-Com: Enemy Unknown $17.50

Gamer's Gate
Dishonored $0
Doom 3 BFG $0
Hunted: The Demon's Forge $0
Morrowind GotY $0
Oblivion GotY $0
New Vegas GotY $0
Rage $0
Rogue Warrior $0
Skyrim $0
Obviously the Bethesda pack, received full refund despite redeeming 9 of 11 keys. Missed F3 & Brink.
Also used the Blue Coins I got from this on the Shogun II blood pack DLC.

--------------

Total Cost: About $200, $120 of which was Christmas giftcards. + some tax from amazon.

Comments...
Best deals: Obviously getting most of the Bethesda pack for free, pending their resolution of the deal. I can't imagine them re-charging me weeks later, but worst case scenario they charge me and I get Fallout 3 GotY and Brink back for $28. Well worst case is getting Bethesda to revoke the redeemed keys, but that would be website suicide that Bethesda has no incentive to participate in. Also Sleeping Dogs and the games I bought with its credit was great too.

Retrospective better deals:
Didn't realize the Augmented edition of Deus Ex had nothing I cared about and the base game was slightly cheaper on Steam, could have gotten Spec Ops cheaper on Amazon with coupon, bought Mirror's edge for $5 when I could have gotten it and 4 other games for $8.50 with EA credit (though on Origin), GMG had a Shogun II specific bundle I would have been better off with than the Amazon Total War one. Should have looked at how some of the older games run, Commandos has problems and some others have to be messed with may have passed.

Overall.... damn, PC gaming is sure a lot cheaper than Console gaming. $200 for a pretty large library of games with a lot of 2011/2012 high profile games. Throw in three humble bundles + the THQ one and now we are really talking. Granted Bethesda was just a mistake.

Amazon for meself:
2k Shooter Pack $4.99 -- I didn't have Bioshock 1/2 on Steam yet, lol
Scribblenauts $7.49 -- 75% off months before it's even out in most of the civilised world? couldn't pass that up.
DS2 Franchise $13.19 -- was desperate to increase my Steam games count, and that thing has a ton of items in it :D (bought on Dec 20; wanted to hit 1000 Steam AppIDs by Dec 24)


Amazon for pals:
NBA 2k13 $14.99 -- my friend was out in New York and had no ability to buy games
DS2 Franchise $13.19 -- the same friend thought it was an amusing idea if I had to paste him about a hundred Steam keys

ZeitĀ² $2.49 -- a friend was too dumb to buy it when it was free @ Ubisoft

Most Serious Bundle Ever $4.98 -- one of my friends is young enough that he hadn't played any SS games (might have been $9.99 and gift credit made it cheaper? or was there a coupon?)



November, myself:
CoD Black Ops II $43.98 -- bought digital key from a third party Amazon seller
Sine Mora $3.39 -- too cheap to pass up at that point, and a developer actively posting in the Steam forum made it seem like a game worth owning
Sonic 4 Ep2 $3.74 -- dandy game, my girlfriend loves Sonic
(and the Prototype bundle)

November, for others:
Max Payne 3 $19.99 (nowadays it's $10 lol)
FIFA 13 $19.99 && NFS MW $19.99 -- spent months talking a friend into those, as he was very very afraid of Origin/EA for multiple years




Steam purchases:
Sniper Ghost Warrior Gold base + 2 DLC $1.99 -- good price & DLC
They Bleed Pixels $2.49 -- price I guess
Hitman Absolution Suit and Gun Collection $2.99 -- had just bought the Pro edition off a key trader for $25 and figured (wrongly) that the extra DLC would be usable in the main game
Killing Floor - Ash Harding Character Pack, Crusader Kings II: Legacy of Rome, Killing Floor - Community Weapon Pack $4.47 -- DLC I lacked that happened to be on sale
Ignite $0.99 -- again the low price



Bought from developers:
Ravaged $5-ish
Weird Worlds: Return to Infinite Space $1-ish


GG:
Cargo Commander $0.5-ish
(they're the most ineptly headed store of all time - their Twitter account also reeks of anything but professional management)


Other third parties:
Hitman Abs Pro $25 (see above)
Civilizations V Gods and Kings $6
various Indie Bundle things



What I didn't buy:
- SRTT Complete at $2.5 (THQ promo) because I forgot to
- Lego bundles because there's so many of those games in rather weird arrangements -> why not one bundle of all Lego games?
- Walking Dead at $12.49 -- because it'll be $5 cheaper in January :D

Passing notes: I didn't buy anything at GMG because they won't let me buy anything and their "one response a week"-style CS blames me/my computer/my internet connection/ancient deities. In terms of price fluctuation they're a really aggravating bunch as well - the people who complain here when a game is suddenly $2 cheaper should definitely head over there, they'd have a field day.

Quick PSA - 007 Legends (and all other Bond games) have been pulled digitally by Activision. If you want it and can find a copy, act fast.

I intended to buy that since I only got the base version of the THQ bundle but I never received my THQ code =\ I only bought Nexuiz at $1 from them, but I didn't think there was some price limit or anything.

I noticed Blur is Gone from steam within the last 2 days also.
Might be all Bizarre Creations developer games published by Activision.

Both the 007 titles and blur were by them and created before Activision bought out Bizarre Creations in 2011 so maybe some issues came up.

Actually no, Quantum of Solace was developed by Treyarch and Legends by Eurocom. Maybe the license for the Bond games expired or Activision is moving away from Steam to create their own digital distribution store like EA with Origin which i'm inclined to believe due to the remove of Blur of Steam as well.

Will you be price-matching Steam on this title?

Sorry all I remembered was they did Blood Stone lol.:-#
I hope they don't make a digital store Ubi and EA are bad enough.

No, these games were also removed from Activision's own store as well.

It's licenses. Blur is most likely to do with a song on the soundtrack like how Vice City was removed for a few weeks.

Amazon:
Saints Row the 3rd Shark Attack Pack - Free with $2 promo voucher
Sonic CD - $5
Kingdoms of Amalur Complete Bundle - $4.03 (had some credit)
Darksiders Franchise Pack - $8.00
Hotline Miami(courtesy of Severose)

Steam:
Ys: Oath in Felghana - $3.75
Ys Origin - $5
Orcs Must Die! 2 Complete Pack - $6.25


Green Man Gaming:
Mortal Kombat Kollection - Free using credit

I would have had more from GMG, but they ran out of keys. Overall Amazon was the only place with the best deals and I only bought three games from Steam this season so far because I can't get them anywhere else.

Any thoughts on mass effect 3? Is the delxu version worth the extra $5? I've played 1 and 2 but none of the dlcs with 2. If I wait another year think there will be a 3 with all dlcs ?

Alright, I need some advice. I've got two more $5 coupons - do I drop one on Spec Ops? How long is it going to be on sale for at $2.50? There's not much else I'm waiting for - already have TWD, but there's part of me that wants to wait - we have an awful lot of January left.
