Just a heads up, they appear to be removing the individual DLC for Batman: Arkham City. All the individual DLC's respective pages are still up, but you can't purchase them, and on their page, the GOTY version it bannered and is purchasable. I was hoping to pick up all the individual pieces of DLC for the base game, since the GOTY version is a separate Library entry, but that won't happen unless they go on sale elwhere like GamersGate. I get why they'd remove it (it was just recently on sale and the DLC came to being more than the GOTY version), but if they are removing the DLC, they should roll both games into one entry in the Library, and not leave it being incomplete and not updatable. I find this an odd move considering Steam's stance on not allowing games on their service that can't have all the DLC purchasable (unless grandfathered in like Bioshock 2). Does anyone know if the save games are cros-compatable between the base and BOTY editions>?

What "stance" are you talking about?

People who bought Dead Island and didn't get the DLC can't buy it anymore either. This isn't a one-time thing, someone did this on purpose, either Steam or the publisher.

New Runway pics! Yesterday's is quoted below. It got buried fast the I-haven't-got-my-Amazon-coupon-email threadraging last night. Sorry around the camera crosshairs. I experience is that the actual in game photos crushed a good bit of the details.

Fun Fact: Mission Runway uses the GameBryo engine (the same one that Morrowind and Oblivion)

Costume Quest.

And Skyrim too, albeit in that case it's a (supposedly) heavily modified Gamebryo.

I've actually been trying to see if there's a way to the ENB Series to work with Mission Runway but no luck so far. ;)

get your ocd fixed and buy the game of the year version or don't get the dlc since it sucks anyway

That can't be accurate.

I don't find this to be rambling.

I noticed this earlier as well and was upset to discover it, as I picked up the non-GOTY version in the Amazon sale in early November and was interested in picking up the Harley Quinn DLC at 75% off in this sale.

Hotline is going to be on Amazon's best of 2012 sale next month. It will be at least $5 then and quite possibly less at some point.

I dunno about less... Tony says that they won't price match Syndicate because, after coupon, it's cheaper than they were offering a few days ago.

If they keep that approach, it may not be PM'd or discounted at all.

There's a list of them here:

More may be added later though.

Thanks for the list; I appreciate it.

Alright, alright.

*deletes post asking to get in on a 3 pack and waits for Awesomenauts to be bundle fodder*

I just figured it was the only -nauts game I don't have now and all. ;)

It's not on Steam, but it's definitely one of the few "-nauts" games ever made. Admittedly, I imported the PSOne version back in the day, and I don't regret it. Relatively speaking, though, I enjoyed the Sega CD version of Snatcher more.

Shoite, I'm heading off-topic. How 'bout that Mission Runway?

It's true but I figure there's no harm in waiting. At very least it won't be any more than $5. If it's still regular price on January 31 then maybe I'll just grab it then or maybe I'll wait and see if it gets bundled. Eh, we'll see.

$2.50 or less is insta buy though.

Definitely no harm in waiting. I'm just pointing it out that it's not looking likely. :-(

I bitched a couple pages back about how meh this sale was and what I say still stands. Amazon and GMG have been blowing away the things we've seen in this sale. Even Steam themselves have beat the majority of these sales prices in the past. I think we're just past the time when a Steam sale is a big deal now that there is more competition. It's a good thing, but it does take away from the excitement that there use to be around the sale.

A little much egg nogg? It's a perfectly valid point. The non-GOTY version of B:AC has more activations than the GOTY version.

Don't forget Tony's habit of mashing titles into bundles. I think Syndicate (2012) would be a good candidate for some shooter pack.

Ah well, that's a pity, least it's was relatively cheap and will give me the Magic fix I've been looking for without having to dig out all my old revised cards or dropping significantly more at the game shop.


Oh yeah, absolutely still worth it. It's basically like playing with pre-built theme decks, which I've never minded. Part of the reason I have 2011-2013 is that I've picked up each one on a different platform. 2011 on XBLA, 2012 on Steam, 2013 on iPad. Gives a lot of options as to where to play.

If you can dig up the old '90's version of the game, there's an actual deck editor there, though it doesn't work too well on modern systems admittedly. Also hard to come by these days, but perhaps try eBay. Includes thousands of cards to use, so possibly worth the time and trouble.

There is Magic Online, but the prices for that are not anywhere near CAG status.

They charge regular full price per pack, same price you'd pay for the real cardboard cards. They do run Booster Drafts and Sealed Deck tournaments on demand where you win booster packs and stuff, but you have to be real good at magic to even get it down to half price.

You're not wrong per say, but I've still had a good sale. From Steam I've picked up RPG Maker VX Ace and DoW Franchise, which will certainly keep me busy. From Amazon the Batman GOTY pack, and from GMG Devil May Cry IV. $35 in software and $35 in games. I don't think we'd be seeing these amazing Amazon and GMG deals without Steam leading the way.

And both my Amazon and GMG purchase redeemed on Steam, so I'm thankful for that too.

Yeah, Steam sales will still be good and people will still buy things, but I think more and more people will have the experience of looking at what's on sale on Steam and realizing they bought that from another site for the same price or less a couple weeks/months ago. That's how it's been for me. I use to load up on Steam sales, but now I buy things steadily throughout the year.

I honestly like it better this way. The spending a a crapload of money (what? Everyone doesn't buy hundreds of games at once? Who knew?) a couple of times a year with long dry spells isn't so great on the finances.

I prefer it this way as well, I generally only buy stuff that is 75% off because of my backlog and I still have years worth of games to play. It does take away from the WOW effect of refreshing a Steam page when new sales hit though.
