I have nothing to add to the Tropico 3/4 discussion but just at this very moment realized that my holiday Trailer Park Boys marathon on Netflix has finally educated me on the identity of your avatar. :lol:


Haha! I love that the pic I'm using has him holding a rum and coke - as always.

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

Its a good deal but I know I would never play all nine Tomb Raider games, are there 1 or 2 of them which are stand outs?

Legend and Underworld are the most recent games from the series. If you aren't nostalgic I suggest only getting those two.

I love how the Painkiller franchise is 50 to 75% off... except it's really 33 to 75% off since the new one is only 33% off. Good job Steam!

I noticed that this time around on the Skyrim sale the DLC is only 33% off (was 50%).

Damnit Steam, put Crusader Kings II as a daily already so that Amazon can price match it for me!


Amazon isn't matching everything so if it does go up, you might have to pick it up on Steam...

At least this game goes on sale all the time and everywhere so it shouldn't be too tough to track down.

(Amazon hasn't matched Steam's Total War Grand Master Collection).

Really wanted to pick up Shogun 2, but not at 66% off. It has been 75% off in the past don't know why it is 66% trying to milk more money out of sales I am guessing.

I'm thinking about picking up SW-KOTR 1&2 off the new deals for today (I know it's been on sale previously, but am just now considering picking them up). Any thoughts on how well the games looks on PC?

I am also wondering for Max Payne 1 & 2 (still on sale from yesterday). I have both on PS2 in my backlog, but if they would look better on PC, I would go that way...

The KOTORs hold up well today. The graphics are decent enough that they don't take away from the game. Make sure to check out the Restored Content mod for the 2nd game since Obsidian had to rush the ending when releasing it.

Absolutely worth the $5 for both, as they each hold 20+ hours of gameplay.

Well, if they don't, it means at least one of my $5 certificates will go to waste. That's really the reason why I want it to, because options are limited for me. That, and I have a lot of credit on Amazon.

The first one didn't run all that well for me, but I am replaying KOTOR2 right now with the new content mods, and the game holds up pretty well. I'm no graphics-whore though.

So I think I'm probably going to do my "last day" purchases early because I think we've probably already seen all the sales one way or another and I don't want to forget while I'm at MAGfest for the weekend.

So, if Magical Drop V somehow hits a flash or daily, you're welcome.

If Steam had made a 'Shogun 2' bundle consisting of:

Shogun 2 + DLC & Shogun 2: FotS + DLC for around $15

I would have bit.

I was looking forward to grabbing The Longest Journey until I played the demo. After I ini tweaked in windowed mode so it wasn't stretched I found out that windowed caused my windows fonts to change, the game to freeze and require hard quit on scene changes, movies to play in a different location than the window was located, and other issues. I'm sure it's a great game but I can't put up with all those issues to play it.

I generally browse the Steam forums for any unknown game before I consider buying it. A few angry rants here and there is normal but if you have the bulk of the natives restless that's a problem.

You know it's bad when you see a thread entitled "Random Frustrations Topic". ;)

To be fair, the game is 13 years old. That being said, I had no issues running it on my current rig, but I don't have a widescreen monitor and I played it full screen.

Demos are often version 1.0 (unpatched) or some versions behind, so it's hard to tell actual buggyness of the game from the demos.

I may try the demo again on my old XP laptop which has been retired, but I won't be getting to it before the end of the sale. It's something I want to play, but backlog.

Demos are often version 1.0 (unpatched) or some versions behind, so it's hard to tell actual buggyness of the game from the demos.

While I understand devs not wanting to devote resources towards updating demos, it reflects poorly on the game and in this case (at least temporarily) has cost them a sale.
