CAGs, I mentioned not too long ago that the Ravaged Beta turned into a retail key, but apparently it didn't go through, only to a demo copy. It is now a retail copy.

so Free game alert yall. But seeing as this appeared in my steam updates, you should see it soon as well. And devs seems like pretty nice guys on reddit at least.

Spoiler

Thanks for the notice. I haven't seen a pop up and my Steam library is so long I never bother looking at it unless I want to install a game so it would have taken me a while to notice on my own.

It's more Counterstrike. For some that's a positive, for others that's a negative. The big difference is that this version has been consoleified and matches are 5v5. If you didn't like CS:S you probably wouldn't enjoy CS:GO.

As a Valve game it'll get cheaper... FAST.

I'm probably gonna bite on the DoW bundle. I kind of want to pick up Unmechanical but I know if I buy it now, I probably won't play it for a year and it'll be in an indie bundle in the next 3 months.

anno 2070 is $19.99 before the 20% off coupon on GF, does anyone know if it's been lower?


It was ~$13 during an Ubisoft flash sale once and also part of a 2 for $15 bundle on get games go once iirc.

I am assuming you are correct UNLESS you don't use matchmaking which you just shouldn't. But seriously if you have played Counter-Strike before your immediate thought will be, "Yay! I played this game in 2000" or whenever the game came out. At least that was how it was for me.

Some people complain about how Call of Duty is the same game every year, but those games in comparison to Counter-Strike "sequels" are the most creative thing in the world. Although you should not look at the newer Counter-Strikes as sequels and merely HD versions of the previous. So the question is... do you want to spend that much on an HD version of a game?

You'll get owned in go if that's how your source games went.

Edit: wrong quote. Don't feel like fixing.

Try to do the "verify email" part again, and check your spam folder.

I got to the same step last night and never got an email from them. Did it again this morning and had an email in my junk mail after about a minute. From there, it was smooth sailing until I got to the part where they're all out of keys and won't have any until mid-January.


No amount of requesting that email has done me any good, nor has changing what email I'm requesting it to... Not at any time today. I expect they'll cancel my pending order before I get the chance.

I dont think it would get much cheaper. Being CS is 3$ CS:S is 5$.

Yeah I think they just left it alone b.c CS:GO is supposed to "Unify" the communities. To me though it just looks like it made a 3rd.

"I don't know if Santa Claus is going to fit in my chimney."


No, stop, you're warping my holiday spirit with your Yuletide innuendo.

There shouldn't be any duped keys. That being said, with GG site being hammered like Santa and Mom (apparently), I suppose anything is possible.


This is so wrong. What precisely did you see Mommy doing to Santa Claus?

Bah, I still got Thief 2: The Metal Age (Retail copy on discs) from Thief Collection in my backlog. :-x

EDIT:
You seriously wouldn't believe my backlog.
Some if it even includes Starcraft: Battle Chest + StarCraft 2 are on there (Retail); Homeworld 1 & 2 (Retail discs).


You, sir, need to leave this thread immediately and go play Homeworld. It is ridiculously good!

Yes, DoW is the "standard" RTS and DoW2 is more tactical. I never played Multiplayer (besides Last Standalone on the free weekend, and was GREAT) and can tell you that if you like that kind of game you will love singleplayer. Everything is AWESOME on the WH universe. I loved Space Hulk back then... going through shadow of the hornet rat (very difficult game)... and back to 40k with DoW/DoW2 series. I'm thinking seriously about grabing this pack, besides already having 3 of those games on steam (I still haven't played Retribution, and the $ diff is ridiculous... and all DLC and the old games, which I owned retail but lost them)

Can't recommend RS:V1 on Windows 7. Played V2 and loved that game, so I bought V1. Getting that game to run is really awful... and then going back to desktop so often. I believe is because compability, maybe on Win XP it works fine

You should play GRAW2, is a better game than 1. If you can stand old graphics, the firsts Ghost recon is really great... and difficult. Is the best of the series IMHO


Spoiler
If you like SC games for their stealth-orientated gameplay, you should be looking at Hitman series; Thief series; & Dishonored.


YES!!

Though, I'd say it's easier to get into R6 Vegas series than say GRAW.
GRAW's more tactical.
GRAW's flat-out tough & it doesn't take much for you and/or your teammates to go down or die.

Can't speak on the earlier GR games, though...

EDIT:
Can't speak on the new GR:FS, either.
Though, that looks more COD-ish than GR-ish, to me...
Maybe someone can speak on GR:FS?



Thanks for that both of you; I really appreciate it. I'm glad to hear DoW1/2 is worth it for single player (reviews seemed to come down on single player a bit hard in a way I didn't trust the review). I think I'll take the chance of the DoW bundle and see if I like it.

Thanks for the heads up on RS:V1 compatability issues. There's reports of a fix here on SPUF. I think I'll bite on RS:V2 maybe RS:V1. (They're $2.50 each atm)

I'll give GRAW2 a chance at $2.50. I'm generally a bit leery of pre-2004 3D, which is why I haven't bit on the Thief or the first two hitman (though I have Contracts and Blood Money in my backlog). I picked up Dishonored yesterday on GG =)


Spoiler
Say what you want about the sale as a whole and it may not be everyone's cup of tea but it's still a great deal.



I hear you. I'm finding it hard to pass up, even though I'm not sure if I'd like it.

the ace of spades won the vote. I will give them credit for using the song in the trailer. However, once I saw jagex I thought runescape and lost what little interest I had in the game.

Really? I was convinced that Hotline Miami would win since it's so popular, and because I've heard some awful things about Ace of Spades.

Oh well, I guess that's what looking like Minecraft gets you :p
