Yeah, this was a weird sale... Did we even see the Half Life games go on daily at all?


I remember that Half-Life Complete(and the various Half-Life games) hit 75% off as a flash sale. I don't remember them going up as a daily at all.

There was a LOT of love for Giana Sisters in this thread when it popped up on a sale (was it a flash? Or maybe GMG?), so I'll jump on it at 66% off if it wins.

Something about Swedish metal music. I think. It was probably discussed about 200 pages ago (Xmas eve maybe).

Here is how Giana Sisters works. You have two sisters, hell if I remember their names. Each sister has a different ability mapped to the controller so when you use the ability or press right trigger (don't know keyboard layout since I am using 360 gamepad), you switch sisters. Now with that the graphics and music of the level change seamlessly. So you will be switching back and forth between remixed updated commodore style music and Swedish metal music. Also certain parts of the level change when switching like direction of rotating platforms and such.

Excellent game, and to top it off, DX11 support. Yeah DX11 support for an indie 2D platformer. Well worth $5 and hell worth $15 for just the production value that went into it. It's seriously awesome.

Ace of Spades looks like fun - anyone played it?


I got it in a 4 pack when it went on sale earlier during this sale. It is way more fun then I thought it would be. As an FPS it is average, but the fact that you can mine through the levels and create your own paths really is a lot of fun. I've taken down huge chunks of a map by myself before and leaving the enemy in the total open as they tried to approach our base from major sections of the area. The way maps look near the end from how they started is crazy sometimes, with some barely even recognizable as what it was when it first started.

It does look quite interesting. I'll add it to my wishlist in case it drops to 75% off in the future. Thanks for the mini-review!

I've enjoyed Ace of Spades as well, fighting against Zombies I found quite amusing. As KaOTiK stated the digging in the map brings a new element in the game. I'm not disappointed with my purchase as I grabbed in a four pack.

I picked up Satazius ($2.99) last night after enjoying the demo. It's a pretty fun old-school type shooter, so if you fancied Thunderforce, the old Darius games, etc. this is right up your alley. It works perfectly with my wireless Xbox 360 controller, allows you to save your replays, and offers a variety of weapons to earn and swap between on the fly.

While I appreciate modern arcade shooters with their point systems, close shave boosts, and floral bullet patterns, this game refreshingly offers none of those.

Here's some video (which is stretched a bit vertically for some reason):

I'm getting mixed signals on Ace of Spades. Some people say it's awful and to steer clear, others say it's fun and unique. I also see that a lot of people are complaining that they can't even run it. I'm interested and I'd probably bite at the 4-pack price, but the negative reviews are scaring me off.

I think the varying opinion might be because of the different game modes. Team Deathmatch, which is the most popular mode, doesn't really take advantage of the mining and building elements, so it leaves the game feeling like a subpar fps. Other game modes like Demolition, CTF and Zombie to an extent make the game feel more worthwhile and unique.

Babel Rising is originally a touch screen game that is literally .99$ on the app store. (Or so steam forums are telling me)

What I like about Giana Sisters is that it's challenging without feeling punishing. I don't feel like every level is intentionally trying to punish me for attempting to progress through it. Instead, they present challenges that may look incredibly difficult at first, but can be overcome, especially if you sometimes take a moment to think of what actions need to be taken which is nice since there's no time limit for the levels either. I've completed 2 out of the 3(?) worlds so far, and have been thoroughly enjoying the game.


I agree with this. Giana is challenging for sure but it never feels unfair like something like Eryi's does.

Eryi's is like:

Oh you're going to jump there? Whoops we forgot to tell you hidden spikes pop up from the ground there. LOL.

As a complete and total fanboy of the band in question, it really warms my heart to see you guys enjoying Machinae Supremacy's work in Giana Sisters. :D

Voted for Giana as to hopefully spread even more awareness + sales of both the game and the music.

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

Not too excited about the Dailies, was really hoping for some Fallout love, but I'll pick up the Trine pack.

Still only 50% off Goblin Menace DLC, and no discount on the Rage DLC makes me Rage.

Considering how Valve trolled everyone in the Summer sale, it's possible this will be the "daily deal" tomorrow. Not certain, of course, but that's exactly what happened with Jade Empire.

Feh, no Crusader Kings daily either. I guess I should have assumed that since it was a daily before the sale started. I guess I better hope that a retailer gives an excuse for Amazon to match them in the next month.

Wondering this too. And no sales on dirt 3 or the newest dirt or fallout? They went on sale repeatedly last time. I'm wavering on A regular discount purchase. When exactly does this sale end? Missed it last time and I don't want to do it again.

Jeez. I was quiet the whole sale because certainly Fallout will be featured sometime, no need to panic yet. All I wanted out of this sale was New Vegas DLC, too. Maybe a flash?
