I bought the Batman arkham franchise pack. I haven't played either of the batman games and I always wanted them, so I bought both of them and am happy I've finally gotten something from this Steam sale so far! :P

If I buy the DR2 pack, and I already have the original DR2, will I get an extra copy?



Unfortunately not.

FTL is worth the cash. I paid $6, already put 10 hours into it and barely scratched the content (and the

)

I really want Mark of the Ninja, think that'll be bundle bait?


Both shanks (same devs) have gone bundle, Humble as they are ;) Shank 2 took less than a year to get in a bundle. So I'd say it'd be possible in about a year. If you think you'll get your money's worth before next summer, I'd say it'd be worth getting now.

Unless specifically stated you will not get an extra copy. It just disappears :-(
I dont see anything that says that you will so Im going with no.

If Anno wins I will headdesk because it just came off of being a daily for 48 hours.


I want Anno in the worst way. But there's one word that keeps me from buying it in its current condition:

TAGES. Fuck that

I'm being asked to put up with the retarded always-on Ubi-leash. Don't make me install potentially harmful DRM on my machine as well. (Besides Gamersgate has it on sale right now for $14.98)

Tropico 4 gets my vote, despite the fact that I almost want to wait for a GOTY version since it clearly has DRM diarrhea.

That Dead Rising 2 pack is off the charts. I already own DS2, but I still have to pick that up. Thank goodness for my policy of only adding games to my library when I'm ready to play them. As a result, I still have DS2 in my inventory. So I can just resell it.

I tried that once it worked great.... To bad every game I buy I download it and play it for 10min. Only game in my inventory is Left for Dead.

I'm with you on the Tages.

For Tropico though the Kalypso DRM is pretty benign. To say that I am not a fan of additional 3rd party DRM on top of Steam is putting it mildly but the Kalypso one is basically just an account login you create that you have to be connected to the net at least temporarily to activate the game for the first time but then you don't after that.

As far as I know, I have never heard of any activation limits with it and I just shut my internet connection off and the game loaded fine with the DLC and everything. (you do need to disable cloud save in Steam though if you are going to do that).

As a DRM, Kalypso's is about on the same level of Steam. It's really not very intrusive or limiting at all.

Yeah I'm pissed I bought DR2 base during the Autumn sale...everyone said it was a great deal for $7 but this deal is truly great. I'd love to have OTR for the sandbox mode. Smart smart thinking by The End.

how much less than 5 was it? because I had it on ps3 back when it came out and I wont play it anytime soon most likely but would like to have it

yeah i was thinking the same thing about the community choice
i am super disappoint


I got it off another CAG for $3. You can wait. & yeah, these community choices...no words.

Ever so slowly, I'm starting to warm to this Holiday sale. Thus far, I've already picked up the DoW Franchise pack & the Dead Space Pack as well as the Telltale Collection (thanks Jake Nome). There have also been a few other items that I would have picked up if I didn't already own them. The Mass Effect pack, Dragon Age Origins Ultimate Edition & Saints Row The Third complete pack
Spoiler
come to mind.

I also regret passing on Sims Medieval & The Tomb Raider Collection. Both were flash deals, so I'm hoping that they return.

Not quite the knock your socks off sale that some past sales have been, but there have been a few awesome deals.

Have 26 left to spend on the holiday sale, just picked up the Dead Rising pack. The sale is picking up in little bits and pieces. Dead Rising was too good of a deal to pass up, it being Capcom and all.

Dont know about Deadlight taking in consideration that the publisher is Microsoft but i think Mark Of The Ninja will be on a Bundle in the future, but i'm not expecting that to be soon.

I'm familiar with the iron grip Starforce had as worst DRM out there, especially with watching it destroy multiple drives, but can someone fill me in on what TAGES does?

If Sims Medieval comes back try to find an Australian to sell/trade it to you. Apparently, it was 93% at $2.19 for some crazy reason there.

By the time I found out, it was minutes before it was ending and I didn't have time to try and track someone down to potentially get it from.

Mark of the Ninja will probably be in a Humble Bundle. Shank 2 was published in the same way, same style MotN was but with a bit more EA. So MotN is MORE likely to be Humble Bundled than Shank 2 and 1, which both got bundled... so... yeah.

That said, without a doubt it is the best stealth game in years. Easily Chaos Theory or Thief tier. It's just THAT good

Are any of the Dead Rising OTR DLCs gamebreaking or overpowering? From the descriptions it sounds like they might be and I don't want to buy them if that's the case.

Merry Christmas, all. Grabbing the Dead Rising pack at that price. Also snagged KotOR I during its flash sale and Scribblenauts from Amazon. Plus, after opting to wait on They Bleed Pixels during its flash deal, an old college friend gifted it to me out of the blue, possibly because I gave him my extra Rage Augmented add-on code a while back. All is well in the world. :D

Edited by DPsycho, 26 December 2012 - 06:31 AM.
They Bleed Pixels. Why do I keep confusing that with Dead Pixels?
