I guess the majority loves repeats, as they keep voting for them.

Well it's not so much that it's a bad game. There are plenty of other bad games in that pack. And I already have my fair share of stinkers in my library. It's more the whole animal torture/mutilation angle to the game that I can't get past. I don't have any pets, nor am I an especially big animal lover. But that just seems a bit much for me.

Though I certainly don't want to discourage others from playing if they want. I know some people get a kick out playing horrible games. And I assume that it either doesn't bother them like it bothers me, or they can allow themselves to simply look past it.

Anyways, enough about Bad Rats. What are people picking up now that we've reached the last day?

I've already picked up these with a little help from JakeNome:
Act of War: Direct Action
Act of War: High Treason
Age of Wonders Trilogy Pack
Archon: Classic
Dark Sector
Farm Frenzy pack
Kohan Warchest
Sacrifice
Simulation Gaming Pack

Spoiler

Thrillville: Off the Rails

And I've got these sitting in my cart right now:
Ignite
Last Day of Work Complete Pack
Lucidity
Nexus - The Jupiter Incident
Ninja Blade
Sherlock Holmes & The Hound of The Baskervilles
SimBin Mega Bundle
Starscape
Winter Voices + Episodes



never knew ninja blade was on steam, thanks man, just bought it

Also, the Gods & Kings expansion has introduced Spies, and Egypt keeps stealing all of my tech. I've gone to war with them three times over it, but they just won't quit. I did steal a ton of stuff from Rome, and I'm just going to say this, Caesar is a dick. He and I were cool, trading horses for gold, and he comes out of nowhere and denounces me, and becomes friends with Egypt. I'm like whatever. I'm working a friendship with Japan so we can take out Rome together. I had Carthage involved, but Washington took out their capital.


Can someone make sure this quote makes it on the Civ 5 Complete Edition box? I mean, really. Can you sum the game up any better than this?

Has Terraria ever been 75% off? Was a bit surprised it never hit that during this sale.

It usually is during these sales, hence why the Winter sale is getting such a bad rap. The discounts suck.

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

Anyone else here pick up that Symphony game today off the flash sales? That game kicks major ass, it's like Beat Hazard and Galaga had a baby. If you like music/shooting games, I'd strongly suggest picking it up even at only 50% off ($5), that is unless it reappears at 75% during repeat weekend.

Never heard of the game until today when I got home from work, and there was like 4 minutes left on the flash sale. Bought on impulse after watching the trailer.

Lego LOTR 20.09

Walking Dead 12.49

Really hope they reexamine how they're going to do the summer sale. 48 hour dailies plus repeated flashes plus repeated community choices plus end of sale repeats just really kills enthusiasm.

Depends on how much you love spinning around in your desk chair.

I went with wireless with the adapter and haven't regretted it once.

What about this "Sunset Invasion" expansion thing?

Not sure if you're looking for another opinion, but I concur with the statements made by Terlan and Motoki. The two most important DLC's are Sword of Islam and Legacy of Rome, both of which introduce mechanics. Sunset Invasion isn't necessary; seems to me that you'd probably want to play through the game a few times first to determine whether you even want to have a bunch of angry Aztecs show up in the mid-late part of the game. I don't think I would... the Golden Horde is already enough for me. :(

Soon, another new big DLC is coming out which adds mechanics for republics. I have high hopes for it. Anyway, as Terlan wrote, the remaining DLC's are cosmetic (graphics and music).

I can't say enough great things about CK2. The game will provide you with tons of fun stories.

I have wireless as well and someone correct me if I'm wrong but you can connect up to four controllers to a single receiver if that sounds beneficial to you.

What's crazy is you just know Dishonored and The Walking Dead are two of the "highly sought-after titles" out there right now.

Oh wells, since I'm out of anything other than a $10.00 Dead Space bundle, here's my haul:

AMAZON:

I officially went out of control. I think outside of Far Cry 3, Dead Space 3, Army of Two: Devil's Cartel, and Gears of War Judgement, I'm going to have to revert back to PC gaming so I can eat through some of this newly acquired backlog.

Hmmm... That seems like a good thing to have. The only thing is that i also have to invest in a rechargeable battery. Now to wait for a good deal on it. I did a search and a wireless one is $48 at newegg. Does this go any lower at all? Not really in a hurry. Just wanted to get a better deal if ever.

Hopefully tomorrow's encore sale would be something to look forward too.

Response time has been a non-issue for me with the wireless controller, works just as well as with the 360. Also, I prefer the heft of the wireless controllers because of the batteries/battery pack. Feels more solid imho.

Got a really good deal on my black controller/receiver at Newegg for $38.00 around a year ago. Also, you don't have to have the play and charge kit, I use 2 Duracell AAs in mine and they last a while. The controller turns off on its own after no buttons are pressed for a while to save juice. Probably change them once a month or so.

I have both, and I like the Wired one better because of the HUGE weight difference between the two models.

Since Gamersgate lied and rescinded their original promise of January keys I've been trying to figure out what to do. I recently built a great gaming PC after buying Dishonored on 360. I've barely played it so far and so don't care about losing the save. Best Buy's double trade in value + my gamers club would give me ~$22 trade in value for it. Soooo, my question becomes "Does the ability to 1 button quick save and quick load with supposedly DRAMATICALLY improved (I saw 14s vs 2s per load) load times justify a $7 difference?" The graphics are, by all accounts, essentially identical.

Did it hit 75% off at some point? I recall seeing it at 66% off as a flash sale but that's it. It's an instant buy for me if it hits 75% off ($2.50).

you should 86 that console trash. I can't imagine trying to *enjoy* a current gen game on a 2005 console.

edit, it's 2013!

edit edit:
Have you considered trading the game into Gamestop for steam credit? I think they have some extra trade in promo going right now.

I find it hard to imagine the majority of people want a wired controller.

The wireless one is fantastic. I have an Xbox, so I got the wireless receiver. Works great.
