The Telltale Collection looks to be the best publisher pack, and it isn't even advertised.


Thanks for posting this! I have been debating this pack for a few sales now.

Question though: How do I find it? I was able to find it using the link above, but if I search the store (website, client, and mobile client) for TellTale or collection, I do not get it in the results list. My guess is, there are a bunch of collections that are not within the 8 shown on the main page, and I cannot find a link to get to all publisher packs. Any help is appreciated.


If you go to the store page for any of the items in the pack, there's an entry on the page to buy the pack, or get pack info. This should work for any game in any pack - if it's included in a pack, that pack will be advertised on the game's store page.

Am I explaining this well? I don't feel like I am.

>=-75% or IWNB.

There's no way that Torchlight II will be 75% off. It's currently 25% off, and they never go from 25% to 75% on sales, usually flash/deal of the day stuff is double the base percent off only. I doubt you can even hope for a 66% off.

It'll probably be 50% off just like it was during the Thanksgiving sale. The deal will probably be identical to the Thanksgiving sale deal: 7.50 per copy if you do a 4 pack or $10 for 1 copy separately.

On the fence about buying I Am Alive. Been wanting it for a while but I can't help but want to wait for that 75%!


As you rightly should. It's not a bad price, but it's not like the price is going to go up on future sales. Given the "popularity" and reviews, it will hit 75% off or better at some point in 2013.

Thank you! I really appreciate the help. You explained it well enough for me to find it. Now to sit on the fence to see if it goes cheaper.

I Am Alive was alright.. I'd wait until a cheaper price if I were you. The thing that bothered me about it was the endurance bar. It dropped for EVERYTHING (climbing, running through the Dust etc) and the only way to get it back up was to eat (scarce) food.
I actually ended up having to use something I never really want to use (a trainer/cheat) because the game was about to make me lose @ 2 hours wort of work by stranding me on top of a building with not enough endurance to get back down.
I liked the game a lot more once I started using that trainer though.

I agree that it will almost certainly be $7.50 with a 4 pack SO PLEASE STEAM SALE NEWBS DO NOT BUY IT RIGHT NOW AT 25% OFF. That just hurts my soul.

$7.50 is not a bad deal at all but if someone really isn't going to play it right away it will be $5 eventually, but probably not until Summer. It doesn't seem like too many other DD stores sell it but I believe Gamersgate does so I suppose there's a chance for a deal there at some point too.

Oh look! It's that game a few of you were talking about earlier:
Rocketbirds: Hardboiled Chicken: $1.75.

Also:
Lord of the Rings: War in the North: $3.50.

(Using coupon GMG30-DPLIM-DN831.)

Anyone know if the 30% off is one per account or multi-use?

For some reason Valve isn't advertising all of their packs this sale. I went to the big list of all games on Steam, and filtered by packs, then started at the most expensive and worked my way back down. The results of that search are here.

Is TL2 any good? I bought it on release when you got TL1 with it (dunno if you still do or not).

I really should play it...but I dumped like 1300 hours into Diablo 3 since launch and am kinda burned out on the genre right now (although I'm playing D3 as we speak....)

A. Cash difference between 66% and 75% off is about $1.34.
B. Are you gonna play it now or soon, or is it going in the backlog?
C. Do you care about supporting the developer/publisher?

That's my calculus right now. And B is putting me off the purchase.

It's fun, but I still feel like it's a bit overrated. I don't like the camera angle, the UI, and a few other things. Plus I really wish it supported controllers like TL on XBLA.

It is still quite good.

It's a very good game for what it is but it's very Diablo-esque just more lighthearted in tone. If you are burnt out on that genre right now I would say play something else and then come back to it later.

I think part of what has happened, for me at least, is that GMG, Amazon, GG, and a few others have spent weeks leading up to this point just killing on the sales. And Steam doesn't seem to be stepping up to the plate to match their deals... so far.

I'd like to believe that part of it is I own a bunch of Steam games and the sales look familiar, but it's really more than that. For instance, the insertion of general software and DLC into Daily/Flash deals have watered down the selection. Lackluster pricing / deals that have been equaled or bettered already as "feature" deals haven't helped either.

It's still way early, but they haven't exactly come screaming out of the gates in my eyes.

Another thought: I don't think Torchlight 2 will go lower than 50% until after the Steam Workshop update for it is implemented. They basically always do a sale when Steam Workshop is added to a game, and I can't see it being a 75% off sale.

I wish I could work it out so easily. I'm pretty impulsive when it comes to what games I want to play. For example, I didn't have any plans to play Saints Row until I had insomnia one night and beat the game in one playthrough.

My main concern is "Am I going to be entertained or frustrated by this game?"

What are people's opinions on the Introversion Bundle and Dungeons of Dredmor? I started buying PC games earlier this year and wasn't around for the Humble Introversion Bundle, and figure these games won't get bundled again.

The Introversion bundle is decent but you might want to do some research to see the games are your thing. I've tried numerous times to get into Uplink and couldn't, while Defcon was fun with a friend but that was kinda it. Darwinia looks nice but the demo didn't grab me and say "YOU MUST PLAY ME NOW". If there's demos of some/all of them, I'd give them a try. No point in buying just for the sake of it.

Dungeons of Dredmor is pretty smart, I like it quite a lot. I tend to play it in bursts, and haven't completed it yet ( I usually die around 3-4 levels in ) but by all accounts it's a nice entry point into the Roguelike genre.

The DLC is cheap and funny, also. It adds new "traits", some of which are ridiculous - vegan? Emo? Pirate? All are represented.

I would expect it to be very "Diablo-esque" as most of the D2 team have done the Torchlight series. I'll probably hold off playing it...need to find something to pique my interest though...Borderlands 2 hasn't given me that addiction and I've simply played too much Dark Souls on the PS3 to want to dump more time into it on PC :(

This is exactly what happens with me too. I also tend to try out everything for a bit when I buy it rather than just toss it in the backlog. Sometimes I end up liking it a lot and I'll drop whatever else I'm playing and just finish that instead.

Picked up the Monkey Island bundle and Scribblenauts last night. Kind of disappointed the Forge got the community vote, but bring on the new daily deals!

I have a slight, slim sliver of hope in my heart that Valve will rotate the discount on those publisher packs. So while the THQ pack is 50% off today, maybe after 10am the Square Enix pack or the Ubisoft pack will be 50% off as a kind of "daily publisher pack" deal. I can dream, right?

Wait for better than $30. I got it from MS for $25, so I would expect that price point again if not better.

The worst is when people come in to this thread and those on other sites I frequent and pay the sale price for a game that was bundled with a ton of other stuff on Amazon for the same price recently. :-(

Have you tried Dishonored? It's the first game I've been seriously hooked on in a long time.

I was disappointed and frustrated with Dishonored. I'm not saying it's a bad game, but I bought it for the stealth and coming off Hitman, the stealth in Dishonored sucks, I feel. I gave up and bought Far Cry 3, will go back to Dis. later.

I also didn't like that if you die it reloads the last save and you lose any side progress you may have made such as collecting items or ammo or whatever. A lot of games will reset the mission you're on but keep your collectible progress. I found this really frustrating, at least it allows quicksaves but I don't always remember to use them.
