Cities In Motion and all DLC (except 1) are on (secret) sale for 75% off, so fot those that picked it up in the bundle a month ago, now's your chance to collect the DLC for it. Note that the London City DLC doesn't show up in the DLC list on the front page and won't be bought by adding "All DLC" to your cart, the London DLC can be downloaded by buying the collection (w/ base game) or has to be manually added to your cart via this link: http://store.steampo...com/app/206720/

Buying the collection here: http://store.steampo....com/sub/15821/ is still the way to go as it's $12.49 and includes London, buying the "All DLC" then subtracting the only DLC that's not on sale (Design Quirks), and then adding London separately=$13.13.


Any of the DLC worth it?

I've been loving War of the Roses, but having some really silly FPS issues. The game runs awesome maxed out at 60 FPS, but it will constantly flip-flop to 30 FPS. Even on the lowest settings with lighting turned off (lol...) it will constantly just decide to switch from 60 FPS to 30 FPS, then back, and back again, on and on for the entire battle.

Anyone else have this issue? Any ideas?

Looks like the Steam group Hookups is now back. Not sure how, all I knows is the guy that ran it had called Valve and spoke to them on the phone a couple of times and now it seems to be back up. Took like 3 weeks I think from when it was taken down.

At least spell "suck" right!

And honestly, being able to play Battlefield 3 at 50-60 FPS, while WotR is a mess... That's the definition of silly.

Poorly coded maybe? Saints Row the Third was this way too. I mean I can run Battlefield at a steady 40 fps but SR3 doesn't go past 24.

I saw that they announced The Witcher 3, which will be releasing in 2014.

Both of the first two are on sale on GOG, so might be a potential midweek madness or weekend sale to match, although they've been lower before.

So it seems the reason why all those deals groups on Steam got taken down is out now.

From the Hookups announcement

This was a long battle to get this group back. The things that are changing is that we can not post anymore Origin Deals Ever! That was the main issue they had with Hookups. Any deal that supports Steam and directs people to use Steam like all the Steam deals from GreenManGaming, GamersGate, and Amazon and other sites like that are ok. But we can't post any competitors like Origin.


TLDR
Can't post anymore Origin deals. They don't care about GMG/GG/GF deals for Steam, they just don't want Origin deals posted (games only for it or sales on it).

They just posted an announcement. The top thing of their new rules is no posting Origin deals ever.

Wait. Origin has deals? :-P

Seriously though, I'm kind of shocked that is one of the things that stirred the pot.

They did add the obligatory no Russian keys etc. but apparently he said the main issue was that Valve didn't like them posting Origin deals. :shock: I'm pretty flabbergasted at that. The whole EA/Valve war must be ramping up even more.

When you've got a competitor that makes up outright lies and goes out of their way to try to destroy you, yeah, I'd ban them from everything I could as well.

Me and my friends played the heck out of that back in the day. We put a big piece of cardboard down the middle of the screen and put a team on each side to eliminate screen watching. We called it the Bond Divider, though it worked well for Perfect Dark as well.

They had their first real deal two weeks back, Crysis 2 Max for $5, lowest price ever. In early fall I picked up NFS: ProStreet for $4 (the lowest it's ever been, I hadn't seen it for less than $20), which fills the hole in my NFS collection.

I dream in yellow comic sans.

It's not a horrible service, I don't mind it. I would never buy a non EA game off it though. I am not going to limit my gaming just because of one service unless it's that god awful. Luckily I haven't come across that yet.

Has anyone tried this? Worth $1? And is there any history of them giving out the Steam keys when (if) it's greenlit?

So i finally got to look at my steam account and noticed im no longer part of BGCQ. Been busy the last week or 2 playing Ni No Kuni. i didnt even notice of the "purge" reminders and all. My fault i guess. Anyway, thanks for the run and giveaways i won over there. Hope everyone enjoyed the games i brought to that group as well. Until next time i guess... or until a new group pops that will be as exciting and fun as how BGCQ started out to be. Cheers!

There was a change to the rules and everyone needed to comment to indicate agreement or be removed. I nearly missed it myself. Technically, I DID miss it myself as I commented after the posted deadline. There was never an announcement that went out or an effort made to tell people about it outside of visiting the group, so far as I saw.

I'm guessing you should just have to message Spoony and agree to the new condition in order to be reinstated.
