Is $18.74 the cheapest for The Walking Dead? I want it right now to play it but I have a feeling that it will go on a Flash Sale.


It'll be 12.50 at Amazon 12/27-12/29

Just sold my two giftable copies of Bethesda bundle. Now how does it work when I buy multiple copies that aren't for gifting only? I have two extra packs, but there isn't a gift option like there is on the giftable-only copies. Is this because I already requested serial keys for the first bundle I bought?

Had an order that was in limbo that I decided to finish payment on. No games were attached to the collection, so I'm going to have to get a refund on that one.


Care to explain? I also have a collection that has no games attached - I figured they'd just show up later when they released the serials. They can't charge you for something and not give you anything for it.

I don't remember where, but I picked it up for $9.99 at some point. It's in my Steam so I assume it was there?

Just a heads up, the Ravaged devs gave out free full copies to anyone who participated in their beta.

Thanks for the heads up. Honestly, should've been done from the start.

For those talking about the Sleeping Dogs DLC, the base game alone is definitely worth it. The DLC is primarily cosmetic, only stuff I can really see worth buying are the DLC with extra missions but they ain't even important really. You can put in a good 20-30 hours on the base game. Incredibly fluid with a controller as well. Can't imagine on KB/M lol. Either way crazy ass deal, $11 then $4-6 cash/credit back. I don't regret getting it for $16 flat last month, had a ton of fun with it.

also voted Primordia. will be using $5 credit on Hotline at Amazon

Looking forward to hearing about what you guys buy on the cheap with your $6 GMG credit while simultaneously getting Sleeping Dogs for an "effective" $6 less because of the credit.

I have Magic 2013 on XBLA but I got one of the DLC packs from Raptr for free on PC....yeah, I'll wait for 75% off. Didn't hesitate on Unmechanical, though.

Hotline Miami is basically a lock for at least a 50% (maybe 60%?) daily during the sale, so please vote Primordia.

Sale price was around 90 I believe, that's still ~65 each though


For a price of 90$, GG would've made a decent profit. My guess would be that they have to pay around 75$ for each bundle they sold, so they probably lost around 50 dollars for each pack.

That was at Gamefly with the use of a coupon code stacked on a sale price I believe

I assume you mean like me, where I bought two non-gift bundles. It'll just show up as two seperate "show serial key" buttons.

Voted Primordia.

Sad my Bethesda pack never went through after 5 hours but hey I have a huge backlog that needs to be finished. Just started going through and completing games then tagging them with a category 'Completed' So I actually start finishing my backlog and not adding to it. haha.

The first bundle I bought had a listing of all the games it came with, this one just showed the header with no games listed under it. I assume when they fixed the glitch they changed the collection contents to stop any more keys from being sold.

This seems to be what's happening to me, too. I bought two non-giftable copies about an hour ago and I can't do anything with them in my inventory. I don't even get the extra listing that Neuro5i5 mentioned...

Huh. I wonder how that's going to work. Because mine says that keys will be available in january, but there aren't any games. I guess I'll wait and see - if they won't give me games, they'll have to give me a refund one way or another eventually.

I want it but it bugs me knowing it was $20 at Gamefly recently with the coupon so I will wait.

Funny thing is on that sale people were saying 'I wonder if it will go cheaper on the Steam winter sale?' :lol:

I'm also voting for Primordia, tho I haven't played any of the Wadjet Eye games I own yet. As others have said, Hotline Miami will get a daily, and use of Motorhead's Ace Of Spades doesn't give you that much credit.

That's not too bad. Rage isn't a bad game, but of that pack, I highly doubt it would have been among the first played.

I had to gift my copy to myself this morning (couldn't get it to go through last night) and I see nothing but the bundle picture in my game list. No list of games, keys or anything but my email to claim the gift did indicate that they were out of keys. Hopefully the game list will show up in my library when they get more keys.

[Insert Steam Sale Comics]



I feel slightly insulted by both of these comics. I mean so what if I own the entire Stronghold collection and I gift my girlfriend games her computer can't even run? She's going to have to upgrade someday, then it's on!


Edit: And you know, my problem is I just get greedy. I'm 8 games away from 400, I'll probably never play half of them, but I find myself sifting through the developer bundles going... "Well, I might enjoy Virtua Tennis 4 on the PC."

Does anyone have any info on whether or not the Steam version of Far Cry 2 still contains SecuRom? They're not listing it under the 3rd Party DRM anymore, but a google search still showed that it had been in the Steam version at one time.

Sims Medieval was 90% off Australia, like $2 AUS or something.

I don't know about the rest of the packs I didn't check. Maybe they were too.
