CS:GO and dead island are tempting.
I wanted dead island at 75% off.
I know CS:GO has been 50% a couple times already.


Dead Island GOTY is supposed to be on sale on amazon for $5.99 from 12/24 - 12/26 and it's steamworks.

Probably in for CS GO. I loved source, but never got around to getting GO. Also might pick up Dead Island GOTY to. I'm just hoping for a Walking Dead deal.

nvm about Dead Island just saw someone say Dead Island will be cheaper on Amazon soon

Whew I almost thought we had a quote nightmare again.


Yeah, I saw the Inception-like reply box within a reply box within a reply box and went RUH ROH.

If anyone is still stuck with a "pending" GamersGate order (for the Bethesda pack) that PayPal won't complete, I got it to work and posted how in the GamersGate thread.


After like 80 pages of Gamersgate chatter in this thread now you decide it's off topic? ;)

Is DOTA2 different than the beta passes? Will it always cost now, as I thought it would be f2p?

It is F2P or will be at any rate. They are just forcing you to buy microtransaction crap to get "early access" for the time being.

Dota 2: Early Access Holiday Pack
Dota 2 is a Free to Play game, that is not yet fully released. The game is constantly being updated with new heroes and new features.

The Early Access Pack is your opportunity to get in the game now. Your purchase includes a giftable Early Access Pass to Dota 2 in addition to the following in-game items!


Crystal Maiden - Snowdrop Set
Snowdrop Hood
Snowdrop Mantle
Snowdrop Mittens
Snowdrop Staff
Snowdrop Tassels

Mighty Boar Courier

Juggernaut - Traveler on the High Plains Set:
Stoic Mask of the High Plains
Wolf Cape of the High Plains
Aspect Wraps of the High Plains
Long-Fang the Grey Blade

Sven - Swordmaster of the Vigil Set:
Tayrnhelm of the Swordmaster
Girth of the Swordmaster
Fluted Guard of the Swordmaster
Grip of the Swordmaster

Witchdoctor - "Staff of the Old Doctor" & "Wooden Fetish Mask"

No. It's a trap.

Basically they give you in addition some rather unworthy (besides Snowdrop set), but overpriced cosmetic items.

Anybody that wants an invite for DOTA 2 pm me. I have 4 invites that are just going to sit in my inventory (Like the SMNC beta invites) if I don't get rid of them before the game is "released."

Thanks Moto. If anyone wants a beta pass I'll pass it along [if it still has value I'll take any buck game I don't have, like Rogue Warrior ;)].

PSA: If you saw the GameFly thread on slickdeals with the 10% off code, people are also reporting that the 20% off code (HOLIDAY20) works as well although it was single use.

And no, you shouldn't set up a new account just to take advantage of GameFly! That would be immoral and stuff....

It's possible. Sleeping Dogs is another game I'm in no rush to get since I have an old machine. That said, if you look at Squenix titles they drop in price FAST. Deus Ex HR has been $5 on a pretty consistent basis after only a year. I'd say Sleeping Dogs will be $10 during the next Summer Sale. Possibly cheaper on Amazon.

Let me know if it works out for you. Glad to help save someone some money. :applause::D

And remember, if you already used the code on an account you may not be able to use it again on the same account. What to do, what to do?

Picked up steam wallet with 30% more trade in at Gamestop to spend on Steam, but don't think I can turn down XCom for that price.

Double post from the GamersGate thread, but thanks to everyone on this thread for all the informative and entertaining posts. I lurked all night while trying to grab a Bethesda pack for $28.
I gave up and went to bed after 6 hours and then got up hoping to find someone that 'accidentally' bought two.
I looked through all my Gamersgate chrome history and found a paypal tab and checked out. Got confirmation, unfortunately I got two packs. I'll likely just get a return for the giftable copy and just play the waiting game for my keys.
Anyways...thanks again. It was fun and I'm glad I got in on one hell of a deal.

You can easily flip the second one for $50 here or elsewhere.

$50 is a little high.... I sold mine for $35 (I think the extra $8 profit was worth the 5+ hours of tabbing )

People have been selling the entire packs for $30 or $35. However, if you sell the games separately you can get more for the pack as a whole.
