Buy Alan Wake if you haven't. I've played through it several times on Xbox 360, it's definitely my favorite game of this generation, that's not a stretch. I'm considering getting it on Steam just to play through it again and enjoy the feeling of getting achievements for it again.


Aaand I did just that. I just got the franchise pack even though I have both games on Xbox 360 already. I have no way to justify my purchase other than it comes with the soundtrack, has better graphics that my PC probably can't handle, and I really, really effing love this game.

You'll have to upgrade someday.

As far as Steam Workshop for Skyrim. I'm a long time Nexus user and I've dropped my Nexus usage almost entirely since Steam Workshop picked up Skyrim. They've streamlined a TON, handle the updates, and everything. No muss, no fuss. No wailing because things don't work after an update.

Just my opinion. Now I don't MOD so I can't tell you. I'm more of a player than a designer.

(I've got about 40 mods right now and my Skyrim is B-E-A-UTIFUL)

And according to my friends list, Motoki and Palinn already own it. I stuck it on my girlfriend's account.

Ah ok, so then the publishers are taking losses for Steam keys.(?)

I guess they decide what's a "loss". Once you've made back development costs, it's all gravy to issue more keys. And Steam doesn't charge to generate keys or take a cut from each key -- they pretty much get their action by having the item on their storefront which makes it the most obvious place to buy it from.

Still though, Amazon charges me tax whereas GMG and Steam do not so whenever they (Amazon) price match it's ultimately costing me more. They have to beat them enough to negate the tax before I'll bite.

That may be true for you but it's certainly not universal (I'm not paying tax) and I'd imagine that in many instances Amazon's -75% with tax still beats Steam's -50% without.

It was 91% off at GG... :-#

No Dawnguard though. Weakest sale ever.

Which is all well and good (and I bought two copies) but doesn't answer the question.

Because if it was 66% off in thanksgiving, it probably will be as a daily deal again, which means the DLC will probably be cheaper than it is now.

Steam must be trying hard for Winter Fail because SEGA is normally on board with 75% of just about anything. 50% off is just... sad.

Funny enough I almost instinctively put some of those games in my cart and then I realized what I was doing. They went on the wishlist instead.

I was hoping there would be bigger discounts on the individual titles, but it seems the Daily Deal is simply for the "Sonic Franchise" bundle.

I may still consider Sonic Adventure 2 at $5, but I know the other non-Retro offerings could be much cheaper. (Although, if SEGA Classics had its own entry, I would have grabbed it for any sub-$5 price.)

You know, once you have a game that says in its description that you play a woman who gets fed succulent fruits by brawny gents it's kind of hard to get embarrassed by any other game on Steam.

Just sayin'.

WTF Steam. What a shitty deal for sonic generations. It used to be $7.25. What a horrible winter sale steam. The Summer Sale was leagues better.

My pet theory on the pricing of DD PC games. Won't be useful to most folks so probably worth skipping:

Oh, I misunderstood your post.


Also, upon further investigation, I gifted Portal 2 to my girlfriend twice, and she was able to redeem it twice.

I missed the Sonic Complain Train but come one Steam. I wanted Generations at 7.50 like the Summer sale, but now it's a no-buy. Also Steam needs to put Dark Souls up tomorrow at $15 or I'll be heading over to Amazon.

Any chance ARMA 2 goes cheaper than $15? I want to get the DayZ mod, and I have no intention of ever playing ARMA 2 so I'm kinda hoping it'd drop below $10.

Waiting for $10 as well.
