The Double Fine pack is $10. Pretty good deal, but I'd be buying Psychonauts for the 4th time. Amazon might come with that deal and individual codes down the line.


Amazon doesn't have Iron Brigade though, so I don't know if waiting potentially a long time is worthwhile to you to get separate codes. Psychonauts was in HIB5 and I would imagine it may be tough for you to get a decent amount for it if you were to try and resell.

It's not just $13 for Darksiders 2... it's the same Franchise Pack that's on Amazon.

- Amazon charges sales tax to many
+ Amazon also includes $5 credit towards Editor's Choice games (I already have 5 or 6 of those though)
+ Amazon gives you an extra copy of one of the DLC and a key for DS if you already own it



My only problem with the credits is that they're limited to one per purchase so you can't stack them up, and five dollars off of a $60.00 title isn't anything special.

Seriously: Darksiders II for $16.99, Franchise pack for $13.59, or everything THQ has on Steam for $24.99? Weird pricing...


Amazon has the same pricing. When I went to get the $13.19 deal, the first thing that came up was Darksiders II for $16.99 DD. It really is blowing my mind that Steam's pricing is playing catch up to Amazon.

I was interested in the Jack the Ripper one as well. I actually just ended up watching Dodger of Press Heart To Continue's gameplay of the entire game on youtube instead. I enjoy her stuff, so I probably ended up having more fun than actually playing it myself. (I realized after 15 mins of watching that it wasn't really my kind of game).


Thank you! I'll watch these videos, and hopefully I'll be able to make a decision.

I also watched some gameplay of I Am Alive, and it looks like it could be an interesting game for me, but also one I can wait to play. Not sure how I feel about the stamina/endurance mechanics yet. 75% off or bust!

As for today's dailies... meh. I have all the FEAR games, Psychonauts, and the only Tom Clancy game I want, and Darksiders II is cheaper over at Amazon. Dishonored is too much money for me right now for a game that'd just be tossed into the backlog.

Like others have already said, come on flash deals! You're my only hope today :P

Not sure if you participated in the one they did January of this year, but all the games in the Editor's Choice got discounted at one time or another. They also added a number of games throughout the month. Some of the newer games probably won't get much of a drop and, yeah, $5 isn't going to make it a spectacular deal, but there were quite a few decent games I got for $0-$5.

Out of Curiousity is Ridge Racer Unbound showing on sale for you? It apparently was yesterday but only in the Euro region.

DMC4 is on sale here too though I bought it because 66% off + another 30% off on top of that is surely the lowest it will go, stateside anyhow.

Ridge Racer would've been £6.66ish yesterday? So £4.66 or thereabouts after the coupon? Didn't really catch my attention.

Now, Mission Runway on the other hand...

Bedtime.

Picked up Dishonored x2 (also a copy for my brother whom just got home from Afghanistana 'bout 2 weeks ago) at the word of a few of you here. Probably wont get to play it for a few days. I'm at my gf's apt and have my crappy old laptop :( Looking forward to it :D

Ridge Racer is $50 at GMG for us in the US. :cry: Somehow the fact that I know it is drastically cheaper elsewhere makes me want it even though I'll probably not play it much...

Of course it cannot compare to the fabulousness of Mission Runway, however.

How is the game play of Orcs 2 compared to the first one? More of the same? New and improved? The Orcs 2 Complete Pack is also 75% off at $6.24 which I am thinking about getting since I already have the first pack.


Feels like more of the same. Then again I haven't played co-op on either so its a little bland atm. I like TD games tho.

Tom Clancy Franchise is cheaper if you buy them all individually. Who doesn't already own Rainbow Six or Splinter Cell game, anyway?


Me, at least on Steam. I might get AW & Vegas tho, both are two of my favorite next-gen shooters when I ran 360. Vegas MP was amazing, never tried to sequels to both so $2.50 is looking good. Horrible price for Future Soldier tho.

I'm still hoping to see The Walking Dead for 75% off <$10...I know it's wishful thinking and if it is discounted, it'll be the same $12.50 as always.


I finished it a few days ago and I would gladly pay full price for it (I bought it during the $12.50 sale at Amazon, which registered on Steam). It was a tremendously moving story, and I'm still reeling from it. For what it's worth, I haaaaate gore but I absolutely am in love with this game. Buy it, buy it, buy it.

Yes. Even in the original one you can edit the edit the text file setting custom resolutions, very high shadows, textures, and models.

They have a good deal on Forged $9.99 each and only $40.19 for the 4 pack you know because of the 23 cent convenience charge.

I'm fairly certain it will be a daily or flash deal. I would expect $20-$30.
