It'll be $7.5 on Amazon next week if you have an Editor's Choice coupon (which you should if you bought any digital download games off Amazon late last year.)

I'm with everyone else about Legend of Fae. It tricks you into thinking it's going to be a light-hearted romp, but it eventually becomes very un-fun and tedious.


I'd say more hard than un-fun. I made the mistake of starting on hard and I'm stuck on level 30. And there are some levels that will cause you to curse. (Fucking dragon eggs!) Very fast paced game in comparison to most match three games.

I'm debating Defender's Quest, what do people think about this game? Looks like a lot of fun but I'm wondering if $5 is too much for such a simple game.

If you guys want Drakensang on Steam in the non-US region I would highly suggest voting for it on Greenlight.

It's idiotic that Valve made them do that for a game already on Steam, but they are weird about giving the cold shoulder to publishers they don't have a history with.

It doesn't even require you to install because it's a web based demo.

I actually quite like it but I can't get past the nagging feeling it will be in a bundle someday.

I'm pretty sure they have been 75% off in a past winter sale. 35% off is a pretty weak discount for Steam.

Any of the Sleeping Dogs DLC worthwhile?


Most of it are outfits, small side quests, boosts xp, gives money from what I can tell. The only one I picked up was Nightmare in North Point which is an additional 1-2 hour story mission separate from your main play through. It's ok but not necessary.

Oh sweet! Thanks Motoki! The demo was pretty fun haha. You're right, it's probably going to be in a bundle sometime... I'll just keep it on my wishlist for now, I'm sure it'll be back on sale by summer anyway.

I haven't seen one, and the bundle for $13.00 is a pretty good deal. You're talking like $4.33 a game. (Repeating, of course.) I'd argue they're worth it if you don't want to wait til summer.

Done and done. I have it from the GG pack a while back but I'll help it along. I never go on Greenlight these days and I'm sure a lot of other people are the same so I feel bad for the games trying to get through there now.

yeah if they were 75% off it would only be $5 for the pack
but i would assume that if they WERE a flash or daily (in a future sale) it would only be 50% off since its only at 35% off right now

My last minute grab:
Daedalic bundle
Freedom Force: Freedom pack (stupid community vote)
eXceed collection
Blades of Time (don't know why I'm getting this, reviews were rather dismal, but users here seem to like it so I wanted to give it a shot).

I was debating on Defender's Quest (thanks Motoki) and Tropico 4 + Modern Times for a while. I think since Tropico 4 Gold is already out on retail, I'll just wait til that gets on Steam and gets the inevitable 75% discount :)

So i'm guessing this is the last chance to pick up anything that is a "Big name game" that will be on repeat? Just those will go back on sale and everything else will be back to normal?

I've heard mixed things about BoT. it looks good to me. And a few people have said as much(that it's good) so just go in with an open mind I say.

Already have. I did so (without knowing the situation) during one of my vote-for-everything-on-Greenlight sessions.

Indeed.

Woke up to still not having an Evochron Mercenary key.

Sad part is that the keys are there but Valve has their thumbs up their asses and hasn't pushed them yet. So dumb.

How'd you do that. It doesn't get the EC coupon discount.

Wow...just searching for something interesting to buy on the last day, I came across this!

http://store.steampo...esFilteredDLC_7

The Dream Machine! It's a point-and-click adventure game that brings so many awesome memories of The Neverhood back in the day. The best buy seems to be all 5 Chapters for $5.99...note only Chapters 1-3 are currently released.

I think the meaning is that it was bought while it included a promo credit to use on the EC list.

I came oh so close to pulling the trigger on Evochron Mercenary. In the end, I passed on it because I want to wait until there is a base price drop before I buy. With all this hubbub over the keys though, I'm glad cheapness made me wait.

Good luck. Hopefully it doesn't turn into another Sacred 2 situation on you.

Also just a repeat: "So i'm guessing this is the last chance to pick up anything that is a "Big name game" that will be on repeat? Just those will go back on sale and everything else will be back to normal?"

Sorry if it has been asked. I don't read every post. (TOO MANY PAGES D:)

I started it with my girlfriend who rarely plays games. She wouldn't let me get up until we finished and was insanely disappointed when we hit the end of episode 3 and I explained that episode 4 wouldn't come out for awhile. I wasn't quite as enamored with it, but I did like it. That is a warning for others. The release schedule is quite far apart due to the animation style.
