The free ones. I didn't like Nightmare at all. Random story about a ghoulish invasion, doesn't add to the campaign of the main game, takes 1-2 hours to complete, and the achievements are a grindfest for another couple of hours.


I'm waiting on the "martial arts tournament" one to go on sale. It looks like fun, having a starring role in Enter the Dragon.

If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

I guess it doesn't bother me with Eryi's because that game is so up front about what it's trying to be. Basically I Want To Be The Guy but prettier and with frequent checkpointing.



I went to check out Eryi's Action to see if I should give it a fair shake. There's an invisible block in the trailer for the game.

At least I Want To Be The Guy showed you most of the things that would kill you, and the few times it hit you with "WTF?" deaths, they were mostly comical. Example: Moon killing you is funny. Dying because of an invisible block strategically placed where you're most likely to jump, not funny. Well, at least not if I'm the one playing it. I'm not this dude.

Sounds like Steam is going to do an "Encore" of their sale starting tomorrow and ending Monday, hopefully Gary's Mod is on sale again since I missed it the 20 times it was on sale before.

Translation - they missed their sales projections.


Eh, the last several seasonal sales have had the last day be a recap of the things that sold the best. This is just extending it a couple extra days.

Although, previously, those days would run during the sale. Not necessarily a bad idea to have this be the Weekend Deal rather than, say, marking Jade Empire down 75% for it, though it does strike me as odd to do it in a way that discourages people who might be looking at any last minute deals from pulling the trigger when there's still a possibility of them going back on sale over the weekend.

Well, whatever the case, I'm crossing my fingers for The Walking Dead to go back on sale, so it'll get price-matched on Amazon and I can use my $5 off coupon on it. :D

At this point, I think I've purchased enough individual games from it to almost foot the cost of the full bundle.

I went through the bundle and the games I do want from it are much more than its cost. Might have to hit up Jake since he is selling it for $20.

Curious about something here -- what is the likelihood of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 going on a daily or flash sale at this point, considering the extended sale this weekend seems to be just a recap of all previous dailies/flash sales so far?

As far as I know, I haven't seen Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 appear in any of these sales. It's been sitting at 17% off the entire time. Would it be wise to grab it now before the discount expires?

You have better odds of picking up a supermodel at a gas station than BO2 going on daily or flash

It seems like Activision has a rule against putting COD titles on sale before they're two years old. Never saw MW2 on sale until last year, and never saw BLOPS on sale until this year. Of course, it could just be coincidence since two years is usually the timeframe for the sequel to drop.

I'd say there's a decent chance. It won a community vote, was a daily, and a flash, and seemed to sell rather well during each of them.

I'm missing 46 games from this massive pack. Even though I have 22 of the games, at $30 for the pack, that's $0.65 per game.

Although that's probably about what these games are worth lol

They were both in Humble Bundles.

I dont think they've been very cheap by themselves.

I have checked everyday for a sale on Fallout 3: Game of the Year and New Vegas; UE, and nothing. Is all hope lost?


:( The only thing I wanted was Fallout 3 GOTY.



http://www.steamgame...he-year-edition
http://www.steamgame...ltimate-edition

I got Fallout 3 GOTY from GameStop a few days ago (steam activation) for $9.99. The best it's ever been on Steam is $4.99, so there's a chance we will see it again. It won't be part of the encore since it wasn't a daily deal or flash sale yet. If you don't see it as a flash sale before the current -40% expires, you might want to bite the bullet.

New Vegas UE has gone for $9.99 before, so that's a possibility too, so watch for a possible last minute flash sale. I would say pass on this at -33%, because if you are already getting Fallout 3, you probably won't finish it before New Vegas goes on sale again.

Honestly, I doubt either of these will get a flash sale, seems like Bethesda wants to be stingy with the current -40% and -33% offers, instead of the standard -50% everyone else is doing.

Looks like 8pm pst tonight'll be the last flash sale.

The ones that just went up are due to expire in 19hrs, 51min, so when the dailies switch.

So buy all your extra stuff after 8pm tonight.

R.U.S.E. was showing as £2.49 for me, 75% off. Think they've reduced the RRP too.

They spotted the bloody glitch just as I was checking out. Seems like two glitched deals in one day was too much to ask for :lol:

I played a few hours of it. It's a decent platformer but it certainly feels like it holds your hand a lot in the beginning, and the "finishing moves" get incredibly repetitive after the first few mini-bosses.

Not bad for less than $4, I think that's what I picked it up for.
