Anyone want to request me to vote for something? I already own all three games up for community vote so it doesn't matter to me.

Today's deals:

Left 4 Dead Franchise 75% off - Complete Pack for $7.49

Assassin's Creed Franchise 25-75% off

Edit: errr.... now Assassin's Creed franchise is showing 35% for all the games that aren't ACIII. Hopefully this is just a case of the store being buggy for a bit.

That upcoming GMG price on God and Kings is insane. Anyone who has the Civ V base but not the expansion yet I wholeheartedly recommend it as it adds a lot to the game.

And I'm curious to sell how well Sins Rebellion does in the Steam top sellers list today. I had trouble unloading it @ $10 from the GG screw up pack and had to bring the price down to $7.50, but that may just be CAGs being CAGs and/or that series is not as well known as say Civ or Shogun or something.

I must be really stingy this year, I have yet to bite on anything. The only holiday purchases I've made are RAW and Walking Dead on XBLA.

Backlog envy, that's all I can explain for this odd phenomenon.

...I own too many games. Sins of a Solar Empire is all I don't have, and I'm not big on RTS. I guess I could buy a back up copy of Left 4 Dead 2. Yeah, I'll do that.

How is RAW by the way?

The PC version is published by Focus so I'd have to even research and make sure for sure it didn't have some crappy 3rd party DRM snuck in though...

Once again, I'm a little disappointed in the daily deals. Would it kill them to do a 75% discount on Assassin's Creed: Revelations? It's over a year old already... :P

Same. Well, I've just started to dip my toes into the Assassin's Creed franchise (have the first game) but I haven't played it yet so I don't know if I want to commit just yet. :P

I'm playing the Rogue and it's more button mash than I'd have liked. Mediocre hack and slash. $5 in space bucks though satisfied that D&D itch.

Sins of a Solar Empire is great. I bought the base game, and bought Entrenchment. Didn't buy Diplomacy. Rebellion looks great.

The main drawback of Sins is that there's no singleplayer campaign. It's all skirmish based. That said, no game plays the same. The three factions are very different and are a real treat to learn. The mods are what made the game so awesome, though. There was a Star Wars mod that I just loved playing. Imagine rolling into a system with a Super Star Destroyer and 10 Imperial Star Destroyers to the Imperial March playing in the background. Truly an epic experience.

Regarding Civ V, I thought about paying the $5 to upgrade, but all I care about are the five civs that I'd get. Considering Spain comes with Gods and Kings (along with 9 other civs), it's hard to justify the $5 compared to all you get for $7.25. I'm also betting that a new GOTY edition will come out that includes all DLC prior to Gods & Kings.

And thanks for posting the GMG deal. I'll hold off now and pick that up on Sunday. Can't wait!

IIRC from past sales, the Lucas stuff is usually pretty chintzy on their sales.

I want Lego Star Wars and may just cave at 50% off.

I'd love to play it, since I've yet to play any in the series, but it's always just a matter of other games having my attention first. One of these times...

Exactly. It wouldn't have killed them to also offer it at this price. I know they all require Uplay anyway, but I have the rest of them on Steam and well... I want them all in the same place.

Really want Revelations as it's the next in the series I need to play. Might just bite the bullet for it's current price. Don't know if I wanna wait for the summer sale to see Ubisoft be stingy with their prices again. :/

I see a lot of repeats between the daily deals and the flash sales and community's choice. I would love to see them differentiate the two. Maybe the daily deals are all the recent big name games and the flash sales are the older games on the cheap. There are a lot of older games that aren't hits that I would like to pick up on the cheap but I think they are almost looked over or forgotten. Games like RUSE, Hunted the Demon's Forge, the Deathspank games, 007 Quantum of Solace and BloodStone, World in Conflict, and I'm sure there are a ton more that go neglected in the deeper discount deals. Most of these have 33%-50% discounts.

Same here.. passed on the Amazon price because I already had some of the series on Steam. Gah!

If you don't care about having them on Steam, it's been (somewhat) lower before.

This has been on sale for like $5 before for both I and II, physical copy. Some people even reported getting it at Target on clearance for about $2.

I'm about to do that for the gold edition. It's a bit more than I want to pay, but after seeing it not go on sale during the autumn sale I'm fearful it won't until the summer or later. And I would play it within the next month.

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.


Culture takeovers were, by far, my favorite part of Civ 4. Probably why I've yet to start Civ 5, honestly... though I need to as I personally am glad to see unit stacking go. So G&K's Sunday for $3? Yeah... might do that.
