I'd get GuitarSmith, just need a guitar. Probably a pretty fun way to learn.


Also need a special cable as well...

Grimrock won the community vote?? Wtf people, it was just in a HIB, and has been on sale like 3 times at 75%, jeez. Which I knew Recettear was a long shot, oh well.

So RACE 07 for $1.20, yea or nay?



That title (and ONLY that title amongst all the SimBin games on steam) is cheaper in the US store ($0.89).

I don't know why, and I know it's only 30 cents, but I wouldn't buy it in AU/NZ on general principle. [-(

You can buy one of the packs that includes RACE 07 plus expansions (either RACE Injection or RACE ON Bundle) but then you're looking at over $5.

Personally I'm tempted to buy the whole collection for $23, I mean when you think about it, in the long run, I'm really saving money...

It's a shame, Recettear is pretty great. At least it's still half off.

Yeah, Recettear was the only one that was a good choice. Grimrock was part of HIB and Krator is already 75% off if you buy the 2 pack. I swear the general steam users are all morons. There must be some reason why a full cost retail game like far cry is still in the top 20. It can't be because of CAGs.

Picked up Gamemaker Studio: Standard while it was on the flash sale. Pro's ability add various output plugins is nice for growth, but just being able to output to Windows is a good start. If I end up really liking the software and wanting more export options, I won't consider the $17 a large loss if I need to rebuy Pro and a plugin or two some day.

Also picked up RPG Maker VX Ace earlier in the sale; these software deals have actually been some of the most exciting deals on Steam this year for me.


Describes my software shopping as well for this sale. =D

Was able to grab Hotline Miami last night, as well as Indigo Prophecy on GoG after reading people discussing it in the thread.

And tonight I've caught up with all the posts again! Woo! Just in time for people to list their hauls. I'll throw my list together Saturday.

Looking for some RPGs or cheap games. Any recommendations on Sacred 2 Gold or Drakensang?


I absolutely adore Sacred 2. The character customization is incredible. If you enjoy slaughtering things for loot without a care for the story, it really is a great game.

Co-signed. Also voted for Recettear because that would have been a price I could have gifted to my friends who don't own it already.

The fact that Spec Ops has already created so much discussion here says to me that it was successful in its aim. It would be the most recent game I'd add to my "games as art" argument if I were to ever make one on account of the way it engages the player in terms of choice and player agency and how it reflects on the medium as a whole.

As far as a pure game experience goes, very meh. It's a little short (though with the backlog, a game I can run through in 1 to 2 sittings is actually a plus in my book), ran through story on normal mode in about 4 and a half hours I think it was (a bit longer than actually logged I think due to a lot of deaths later on probably so let's say 5 and a half), but it's a pretty standard third person cover shooter. There's nothing really new or interesting from a gameplay perspective and actually a fair few annoyances, such as vault and melee being the same button drove me nuts on more than one occasion.

That being said, I put it in the same category as the likes of Killer 7 where the gameplay is mediocre (ok pretty bad actually in Killer 7's case) but the experience of the whole package is something I'd put on my must play list for anyone. 2.50 with the Amazon coupon is a no brainer... I failed as a CAG and got it for the 10.14 Steam put it on sale for since I had no use for more Bioshock. Still, I feel it was well worth the money and plan to bug any friends yet to play it to pick it up.

I agree gameplay is meh but the setting and story the devs have portrayed is like wtfffffffff. and at the end of the game I actually felt something for the main character they did an amazing job portraying the other side of war. I left the game saying wtf..... not in a bad way.

I think Sanctum might be one of the upcoming Flash deals. I just got a pop-up from the Sanctum group (which I am a member of) that there was a new announcement on their blog about the development of Sanctum 2. While they were at it, they pointed out that Sanctum was now on sale for 66% off.

I've actually been keeping my eye on sanctum because I wanted to pick up the #2 Map pack DLC. I'm pretty sure that it's only been 50% off for the duration of the sale. Unfortunately, the DLC is still only 50% off, so I'm gonna have to continue waiting if this really what's coming in 80 minutes.

Should've just picked up that darn DLC during the Thanksgiving sale when it was 75% off. :(

Man, I was just figuring out what I've spent this year, and I see what the real scheme is now - all these stores spread out the spending, and before you know it, that's a lot of dough. I was buying from Steam, GOG, GMG, GG, XBLA, PSN, iTunes, bundles, kickstarter...oof. I need to just play some games now. And my backlog is at least 70 items richer now, so hopefully I can at least sort through it and pick something to play before Summer Sale starts...

(Worst part is, I'm not even done yet. If nothing else, I still have to ditch some of these blue coins... )

UGH. Can't believe I missed GM Studio Standard flash sale. :cry:

Maybe it'll happen again before the end of the sale, but it's really doubtful..

Alan Wake Collector's Edition is currently $4.38 at Gamersgate. Another price mistake, perhaps? That's lower than it's ever been on Steam IIRC. It's Steamworks, by the way.

Bought. That's for sure a price mistake. It costs less than either normal version of Alan Wake or Collectors Edition upgrade.

I feel quite bad after buying it, because I'm still waiting for the rest of key from Bethesda packs, but my CAG instinct forced me to do this.

So what was up with the 55 hour timer for CSgo at 25% yesterday morning? I was hoping SS3 would go on sale out of that, but the timer glitched and it stuck at CSGO, did any of the 3 games that were SUPPOSED to go on sale after CSgo, go on sale?

Ha, I hadn't even noticed that. It's currently 50% off ($14.98) for the regular edition and the CE upgrade is also 50% off @ $5. Clearly a price mistake. Looks like they applied the 50% discount 3 times.

Thanks to their continued ineptness, & some leftover Blue coins & the double IAMANELDERGEEK promo, I was able to pick it up for $1.90 out of pocket. :)
