I don't know, I feel like a bunch of us are competing now like grocers at fruit market all trying to yell the loudest to get people to come and sniff our fruit instead of the other guy's.



Haha yeah pretty much. One seller wants $5 for a key and you see another person for $4 or $3. I guess eventually the guy wanting $5 would sell once there are no cheaper options anymore.

You can get Hotline Miami at Gamefly for $4 using that HOLIDAY20 code. It's not much, but you're saving a buck.

I doubt the walking dead will be any cheaper. Should I bite at $9?


Depends how much you want to play it.

Since it has no multiplayer and almost 0 replay value, the console version will drive the price down lower because of the used game market and rentals.

If I had to guess $7.50 or under sometime in Feb. (maybe after coupon) and around $5 or Tony bundled during the summer.

I pulled the trigger on the GMG Sleeping Dogs deal - I had $3 in total credits, and decided it was a fine enough price for the game.

I feel pretty good - I'm looking forward to giving it a shot.

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


Yeah, $8 seems to be a reasonable mark-up for all the struggle to buy and then get keys. I was up until 4AM trying to get my last few keys. But I never got Rage. Well, unless you count the rage I was feeling trying to get the website to give me my keys. lol

So now I have an extra copy to sell, but it's not complete. I was gonna sell it as a unit for $35, now I'll probably be forced to break it up.


EDIT: Sold

I paid $13.60 for Sleeping Dogs just before thanksgiving, and promptly played it. It was fantastic. Somewhat GTA styled but with a totally fresh setting and story (and reasons to respect civilian causalities. The melee combat system reminds me of Batman AA/AC.

I don't believe it. GG support that fast, esp after such traffic. I'm calling it a hoax. There's a subset of people on SD that are just full of shit.

[quote name='plft']Yea, I'm tempted by Sleeping Dogs on GMG as well. Still wondering whether the extreme mouse slowness was caused by my system, the demo, or something else. I maxed out the sensitivity and I still had to move the mouse a ton just to turn. Made the chase scenes very tough.[/QUOTE]


Mouse? Use a controller! I tried using a mouse for shooting on the demo, but quickly reverted to full time controller.

I always had trouble w/ going straight-up CC w/ GMG and having to do a song and dance to get my bank/CC to let it go through.
God, they made it SO MUCH EASIER w/ now allowing PayPal via CC - which is what I prefer doing for International orders.
Went through no problem that way. :D[/QUOTE]


Getting international orders through the first time some place has been dicey for me, usually just a short call to VISA fraud services clears it up. I've used both CC and paypal-CC. No difference in setting it up for me.

[quote name='monkeysez']I played on my PC with Xbox controler and no slowness whatsoever. Also, with high def packs, very purty[/QUOTE]


Yes, the high-res texture pack is a must if you have the VRAM (1GB iirc, worked on my 896MB). It makes some nice visual improvement.

[quote name='Broken Cage']So far I've seen more talk about everyone but Steam. Course, what's there to talk about? Amnesia's five bucks again.[/QUOTE]


What's steam given us to talk about? Seriously. A sale on second hand navel lint would garner more discussion.

[quote name='kiwimonster']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.[/QUOTE]


Hey buddy, we don't need that kinda talk in this thread. You wouldn't go to an AA meeting and boast about getting smashed, would you? :lol:

[quote name='hbluft']Voted Primordia, debating whether Unmechanical is worth getting.[/QUOTE]


Play the demo on steam then decided. I found it underwhelming. Well I just finished a few demos...

Gaina Sisters: Twisted Dreams -- pretty good. I'd be tempted to pick it up at $3.75 (75% off). Competent platforming, response controls, creative bits of levels. Kickass soundtrack.

Hell Yeah -- it's alright. Demo was a bit easy. Controls could be tighter. I expect I'll wind up with it packed into some Tony-bundle next year. I don't feel compelled to pick it up outside a pack/bundle.

Unmechanical -- try Uninspired. What is does it does fairly smoothly. I felt the gameplay was stale. It needed (more?) Anti-Aliasing. Aurally dull. The keyboard controls annoyed me. The other two were controller friendly.

[quote name='SackAttack']You have to figure there are a ton of people who jump on these games anyway, though. Why would they keep putting up farm simulator/train simulator/etc if the games they're choosing don't move?[/QUOTE]


Oh you didn't, did you? Boys! (Imagine four large men in dirty overalls carrying suitably sized sledgehammers.) Don't Fuck with train fanatics! :lol: Seriously though, a set of us own Railworks, some own Trainz, and if you start dissing casual games around here you're gonna find blood coming out of places you never want blood coming out of.

[quote name='Mooby']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.[/QUOTE]


Sleeping Dogs ran just fine (generally over 30 FPS) on my old 3.2 GHz 3-core Phenom II with GTX 260. This guide on rage3d helped me optimize my settings.

If it's any consolation the Rage that comes in that bundle didn't have sewer levels... not that it was much of a deal breaker for me since a friend gifted it to me.

Well I already own Rage, so I don't care. But it does leave a gap in the extra pack that I want to sell. Which I assume would reduce the value of the pack.

I have purchased exactly one game (Metro 2033) from Gamersgate and that was a long time ago, to be honest I don't pay much attention to their sales since they don't always offer steam keys. I mainly stick with amazon, steam and lately GMG for my pc gaming needs

Technically it was a no rep jackass repeating a troll off of reddit, so the origin of the problem started there (as do most things these days that don't start at 4chan).

SD community has less trolls because of the reputation system. No one will believe a guy with 10 rep over a guy with a few hundred or more rep so rumors get squashed pretty quickly.

Where the SD community gets its internet fun is going after companies that have price mistakes, unintentional stacking or giftcarding -- particularly the Groupon/Living Social credit or B&M stacking, and serving as ground zero for the biggest and most complicated firesales (the Great HP Touchpad Firesale of 2011 comes to mind).

EDIT: Nice, jackass doesn't get Shaqfu'd. Will have to remember that one.
