I'm tempted to pick up The Walking Dead for $7.49 even though I won the Season Pass on Twitter ages ago.

I need help. I spent about $250 on games during the Steam Sale.


That's like four console games with tax.

Despite the sale being bad, I still spent a ton. I might have been a bit more easy going since I was given a ton of Steam Wallet gift cards lol.

If anyone wants to purchase my Sleeping Dogs game + Dragon Master Pack + the additional discounted DLC (12 items) send me a PM. Hopefully my impulse buy will benefit someone who missed out.


I would buy it off of you.

It's not how much you spent; it's how many games you got on the money you spent.

Which would I get more enjoyment out of: Dishonored or Hitman: Absolution?

They just seem so similar.



Dishonored is meant to be played as stealth game where you want to minimize the number of your kills.

I played Dishonored in a completely different way than I played Hitman. They give you the tools to alter your plan on the fly, so if I got spotted or messed up I'd react instead of reload. It also meant I spent a lot less time sitting and waiting because I knew it wouldn't mean wasted time when I got a bit sloppy. I had a lot of fun doing it that way.



You're referring to Hitman:Ab right?

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Wow, so I just read back a few pages and saw the Sleeping Dogs glitch. Insane price. I just beat the game on 360 and it was absolutely fantastic. Easily one of my favorite games of the year.

It's not even that. It's how much satisfaction and value you draw from owning the games, however many or few they may be. Some would say the pleasure you derive from playing them, but that's just crazy talk.

No. Dishonored. In Hitman, once something goes wrong it's either a shooter or you reload. In Dishonored I killed two people in the game and any time that I was spotted I was able to get away and try again.

I was very disappointed in Hitman. Half the levels were the type of stealth gameplay I don't like and some of the design choices (loading checkpoint resetting the level, the disguises system, and others) made the more traditional Hitman levels less fun for me. I also ran into several bugs that kept me from enjoying myself.

I was tallying up my August to present expenditures and almost had to grab some Pepto until this exact rationalization realization passed through my mind. Except for me it would be like 10-11 new retail console games. ;)

Edit: And FWIW, I've only been aware of CAG since late October, so all of those August to pretty much November purchases are rather embarrassing.

Between Black Friday and this stuff I get a lot of satisfaction out of the deals. Built a high end PC, got a 40" 1080p LCD for my bedroom that I'm playing some of these games on, got dozens of games, new keyboard/mouse/360 controller, etc. and I've paid less than it would have cost to buy the PC retail.

Hitman: AbsolutELY.

I found Dishonored simple, hollow, empty, boring, hyped.


yeah i'm starting to get the impression that stealth no-kill is not the way to play dishonored
(i guess i should replay human revolution for that)

I've had the game since early September and bought it instantly as a gift when checking what they would bring back for today. Pays to check at 10 AM PST even for an encore of the sale that was an encore of encores.

That being said, I've got a gift copy I'm trying to unload.

Ah whatever there's bound to be a complete package release for SD eventually. Hopefully it would go on sale for $7.50 or so, as of now I have too big of a backlog anyway. Wouldn't mind getting it now but I won't be too bummed about it.

shitman crapsolution....i accidentally completed the china town level (2nd one i think?)
shot a cop. hid in a dumpster. for some reason the target ran around to where the cops body was and started looking at it. popped out, shot the guy, stole the dead cops uniform and instincted my way to the get away point.... i think ill be messing with the contracts mode mostly, just waiting for a few more weeks when i build my new pc

Ah thanks! I only played like two hours of Dishonored (wasn't in patient/steath mood). Despite some great recent additions to my library, I'm still at bit tempted by Hitman:Ab @ $20. That helps me get in touch with my inner CAG more. =)

I spent quite a bit this sale. I picked up a bunch of great games that'll keep me happy for a long time though.

My Haul

Steam:

Ace of Spades
Sleeping Dogs
Sleeping Dogs Dragon Master Pack
Sleeping Dogs SWAT Pack
Sleeping Dogs Screen Legends Pack
Sleeping Dogs - Tactical Soldier Pack
Sleeping Dogs: Nightmare in North Point
Orcs Must Die 2 - Complete Pack
Assassin's Creed II: Deluxe Edition
Dead Rising 2 Complete Pack
Skyrim Hearthfire
Dragon Age: Origins - Ultimate Edition
Sins of a Solar Empire Rebellion
SimCity 4 Deluxe
Universe Sandbox
Mirror's Edge
Dawn of War Collection

Amazon:
Hotline Miami (Free AC)
The Darkness II Standard Edition
Borderlands GOTY
Duke Nukem Forever
Far Cry 3 (uplay)
Battlefield 3 Premium Upgrade (Origin)

GreenmanGaming:

Civilization V: Gods and Kings

Gamersgate:

Bethesda Holiday Pack

Dishonored
Skyrim


All in all, I'm pretty happy with the sale. Some of the discounts could have been better, but I'm still content with what I paid for what I got.
From what I've played so far, no regrets yet. I've already played through Sleeping Dogs and am working my way through Far Cry 3.
Dishonored was also a great play, though I still have to finish it up. Every level I finished had a high chaos level. I would begin the levels all sneaky-like, then inevitably Fuck up and have to kill everyone in sight. But I still enjoyed the hell out of the half of the game I played.

chiv feels more like css with swords
ns2 is like aliens vs predator and has some basic rts elements if youre the commander

if you can only get one, get chiv, because its had steady numbers since the get-go....where-as ns2 has been in the mid to low 2ks since launch, only to pop up a bit since this sale

wow
you should probably get in on 4-packs and get both
or chivalry i guess
do you want a multiplayer game that is different because it has melee combat or different because it is asymmetric?
