Since the sales are so boring and we're all just chillin' here, I'm hoping to spice things up. Enjoy grabbing this, folks! :-P

edit: BLOPS2 still has a whopping 17% discount, and for the life of me I don't understand how people let them get away with charging $50 for a "season pass".


For the life of me I don't understand what people see in the CoD series since MW2... the most uninspirational series ever.

On another note: I love the stronghold games. Even though #3 doesn't get very good reviews I enjoy the game alot. It's much better than #2, which turned tedious micromanagement a new athletic sport, and it's closer to #1's epicness, but with better graphics.

That's it. Too bad the taker didn't have the decency to notify us like I asked. How rude.

I would like deals I exclaim over today. I would deals catered just to me.

I would like 75% off Blackwell, namely. :)


You should have looked at GOG's 5 games for $10 last month. I basically got all the Blackwell games for $2. (And To The Moon, Unmechanical, Resonance, and Botanicula)

I could have sworn last night on the voting tab that Civ V was advertised as 75% off. Now this morning, it is only 50% off? What gives? Was hoping to snag Gods and Kings for 75% off, $7.50 is still too steep for me.

Another disappointing development in the most disappointing Steam sale to date.


Click on the link for 50% off and you will see that the game and all addons are 75% off when you look at them.

Is it similar to Civilization: Revolution on the Xbox 360?


IMHO no. That was made for the console and offers to me a different experience almost IMO a tablet like experience. Still fun but V is much more in depth PC based game. IV is probably the better game but if I would start anybody new with V it's slightly more accessible.

Not really
Amazon has the 2k strategy pack that has civ 5 GOTY + gods and king + a bunch of other games for $20


Sure, if you don't already own all or part of the pack! And I'm not sure that two more games = a bunch of other games. Already played the Stronghold games, which are fun but do get old. This is a good bundle for people with none of the games already, though. Here's the link:

It's very different. Civ Rev was intended to be a faster-paced game that you could play online with people. Civ V is a great singleplayer experience that can be played online with people. It's much slower (though you can set the speed to faster). It's more forgiving than Civ IV in that cities have a built-in defense. Most new players forget to keep military units in their cities for defense. Civ V enables ranged bombardment from cities as well as a health bar that prevents one-turn takeovers by barbarians/rival civs. Their one unit per tile rule also removes the stack of doom that you'd often see in Civ IV.

Yeah, this pack would be tempting if I knew I could sell that copy of Civ IV off to somebody for $5. $15 is just too steep for me. I have a physical copy and a DD copy of Civ IV complete already (and as I've mentioned before on this site somewhere, maybe several places, I have a copy of the Stronghold Collection that I can't download from Direct2drive-cum-Gamefly).

I miss the cultural takeover of cities in Civ 4 a bit more. Unless that still exists in Civ 5 and I haven't seen it.

I do too!!! Not to make this a CIV topic but it's like no cutural takeover really! Of course that would make those culture based CIV's overpowered quite a bit in V. But also couldn't animate the wonders? Couldn't add multiple leaders for the same civ with different traits? Where's Leonard Nimoy!!! Still my 200 + hours say this are grips but haven't stopped me from playing V into the ground! Just a different challenge than IV and that's a good thing.

Thanks for all of the feedback -- went with Civ 5 on Amazon for $5! :D

EDIT: annnndddd just realized I could have picked up the Civ 4 + 5 double pack for the same price. Damn I'm stupid. lol

What's the benefit to not being able to stack units? I loved III, IV, and Rev, but not being able to stack units in V just broke my weak little heart. I only put about six hours into it, though. I could be persuaded back in, but I just don't get why you wouldn't want to stack similar units.

Little more realistic and lets you play it more like a RTS game instead of just stacking 20 units on a single tile and spam attacks until dead

Christ on a bike. Civ 5 GOTY. What DOESN'T come in the GOTY edition? I assume Gods and Kings does not. Anything else not included in the GOTY?

I swear to God. When I buy a Game of the Year edition, I anticipate getting everything. Now we're got to go and Fuck that up! That's right! I said Shaq-Fu!

I just found it to be more fun. I didn't mind it in IV to bad, but I did hate it whenever I'd go to attack an enemy city and had to kill all the units he had sitting in it. I also find that not being able to stack units encourages more of a fluid warfare. Course thats just my opinion.

Depends, is all the dlc you get in the game of the year edition worth it to you? If it is then yes for $5 your not getitng a bad deal. But if your only interested in a few pieces of the dlc it might be better to just grab individual dlcs.

In case anybody misses unit stacking in Civ 5 I would suggest getting the Legions Mod. Yeah sorry about linking another forum, but since the mods have switched to Steam Workshop the way you get it is a bit different. Plus if you don't want any change other than more units per tile then that thread helps with that.

Right, I wasn't trying to argue that you're wrong. I'm seriously interested because there's a lot about Civ 5 that I prefer over the previous Civs, but I just get hung up on that stacking thing.

I personally liked building giant armies of cannons/tanks and rolling up to cities like "You're so toast." In Civ 5, it's more like I surround the city with my army of catapults (never got far enough for cannons and tanks), and just cycle through units bombing on the city, same result, just more moves to get there.
