Okay, this has nothing to do with Steam but I post it here because:

1) Fairly decent looking open world ARPG that's near finished and not asking for a lot;

2) Hot Croatian babe developer.

I've broken that rule 5 times since I started using Steam.

Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition - For $10.20 - July 3, 2011
The Sims 3 - For $13.60 - July 6, 2011
The Sims 3 World Adventures - For $10.20 - July 6, 2011
The Sims 3 Late Night - For $13.60 - July 6, 2011
Saints Row: The Third Franchise Pack - For $13.29 - July 23, 2012


Breaking the rule over 20 cents is forgivable. Breaking the rule over $3.60 :hot: How could you?!?! Were you drunk? Did you just have to see what it was like?
That was 36% man!! 36%!! I just, I can't even look at you right now!

Anyone who wants a 72-Hour guest pass to The Secret World, just PM me your email.

I've slightly regretted every one of them because I've yet to play any of them and they're all cheaper now. And Saints Row the 3rd has been in a freekin Humble Bundle. So yeah, no more games over $10 for me.



This is already post #28 for me. Would be 29 if a mod hadn't deleted one of my posts.


Well Saint's Row Full Package hasn't been much cheaper, so assuming you care about the DLCs, the Franchise Pack was still well worth it.

It has been cheaper - it was $10.19 at one point IIRC.

Yeah, and they're Sims games. All of them were heavily *ahem* "discounted" during the Origin Fall sale.

At least with SR3, I get some additional DLC for not much more than it has been recently. As jatan11 sort of pointed out.

Live & learn though. And it serves as a bit of a cautionary tale for any Steam Newbies who are about to go through their first big sale. It's OK to spend more than $10. But make sure it's a game that you want to play right away. Because unless it's Skyrim, it will be cheaper during the Summer sale.

So I booted up La Mulana since I got it off the Groupees bundle. I put my controller in, go to specify controls. They want you to specify more buttons than any normal controller has. How does one set up either a PS3 or 360 controller button wise?

I don't think it was ever $10, unless you're talking about the aussie price.

And since it's not on Steam or pretty much anywhere but Microsoft it NEVER GOES ON SALE except that like one time, ever.

That sucks lol. Should've been in that MS Store Flash sale. It's honestly a great game.

lol

That's it, I'm never trying a dropped key again. Thank god some poor sap got to it before I did.

Lmao. Who got it? For anyone wondering what game it was... Revelations 2012 hehe


Finally got Borderlands GOTY. Crossing my fingers for Chivalry: MW for under $10 :)

I don't know...$10 is kind of high. I typically stay in the $5 and under range unless something really jumps out as a great deal and must play now.

And if you're patient, and I mean like Mooby level patient, any game* will be $5 at some point even Skyrim. Oblivion is $5 today on Gamersgate.

*Games published by EA and certain Japanese publishers like Capcom who are chintzier with their sales and/or hate Valve are excluded

I'd love to see Super SF4: Arcade Ed hit $5 or less....
...even though, it probably ain't likely w/ Capcom.

Really? Mine just detected the (wireless) 360 controller as a 360 controller and I didn't have to do anything.

Grabbed Skyrim retail at $10 during that crazy Microsoft Store middle of the night sale. Also, buddy sold me a Borderlands 2 code he got with his graphics card for $5!

You shattered my image of you Mooby. I always thought you were an immoveable golem who waited eons for a $5 pricetag. :lol:

Actually though that Microsoft sale was nuts. I got Diablo III and Skylanders (don't judge!) on it. Would have gotten Skyrim but I already had it.

I paid $60 for it but I got the CE with the damned dragon statue so I'm justifying it.

Actually I did wait around for quite some time for the price on the CE to drop.

Eventually? It's always "free" at the Pie Rat Bay Outlet Store, and they get stuff pretty quick.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Price range is relative, though. $10 for something new-ish like Skyrim from a company like Bethesda seemed decent enough. I'm thinking it'll be another year before it hits $10 on a consistent basis. But $10 is just my extreme upper limit.

There's pretty much only one game on my Steam wishlist right now that I'd pay $10 for -- Dead Rising OTR which hit $10 during the Summer sale but I passed on. Knowing Capcom it probably won't hit $10 again. Other than that I don't see any individual purchases over $5 barring some miracle like an Amalur sale.

D3 is easily worth $10.
I got it for that during the TRU blowout.

I wish I got my hands on TSW during Microsoft Sale or GMG's recent $5 sale - since it's now "No subs."

Skyrim's EASILY worth $10.

We do have a resource (like a link ready) for the inevitable rush of people that don't follow the thread and ae going to ask the same questions hundreds of times right? Like a quick FAQ or something? Where's Spoony?
