I might've used all the coupons by the end of Jan. :(
IIRC, TSW was on sale at the END of the January month - like on Jan 31st.



Negative. It was right at the beginning of Jan, 1st or 2nd iirc.

Yeah, pretty sure it was.



<buzz> thanks for playing ;)

or easier way, just buy it from GOG. never had problem with their game, even in windows 8.:D



That's a lot more expensive. These are the GOG versions.

I already own TOEE, PST, BG1 + BG2 + TOB from Retail, from long ago.
I currently really don't need another copy - especially when my copy works fine.

EDIT:

That's a lot more expensive. These are the GOG versions.

Also a good point.

Negative. It was right at the beginning of Jan, 1st or 2nd iirc.

Hmmm....was it?
Well, I'll be damned - I might have used EC coupons on other stuff or was saving them - and well, my plan backfired. :(
God, my memory sometimes sucks.

Oh, BTW - are you buying the GRID 2: Mono Edition? ;)

I believe so. I got it for $15 in December, then it came back for the same price in January + the $5 off coupon.


No, it was $13 after coupon in January.

Negative. It was right at the beginning of Jan, 1st or 2nd iirc.


I think it also was in the recap at the end of the month. Camel*3 seems to agree.

The one good thing about having it on GOG though is that if they ever update anything you will get the updates and fixes. I get a feeling theres probably a slim shot of GG ever updating to the latest versions of the GOG games they sell if they get updated

e.g. dungeon keeper 2 has been updated multiple times over the years, the last one finally made it fully functional on newer versions of windows, used to always have various lockups and glitches. Another is alpha centauri adding the expansion for free. And another is total annihilation, which i got on gg for cheap but ended up getting the gog version later since its been updated multiple times and the one on GG isnt updated at all

Just something to think about when getting a gog game on gg, might be cheaper but might be worth it in the long run to go with gog

It hit $5 once, but that was before it was buy-to-play (it required a monthly subscription to play). Since then, $14.99 is the lowest the game has been (although Amazon had a coupon once that made it $10, and it was sold for $20 with $10 of in game cash once). Sales on the game have been few and far between, so if you want to play, there's not much use waiting for a better sale.


If you grab it, feel free to add me on Steam (same name there). I'll add you to the (horribly inactive) group. Same goes to anyone else who picks up TSW.


yeah ive been scoping out best buy ever since it went buy-to-play since ive got $40 in reward zone certificates and i already own the majority of the limited amount of games best buy carries. but, like you said, sales have been few and far between so i think it would probably be best to grab it now.

Hmm... Tempting... but it's the low-fi PS3 version. Also, my credit limit isn't high enough.

Meh, there's something to be said for significant cost savings, esp for something that has been on GOG for a while. If you absolutely had to buy one or two of those from GOG later, you'd still come out significantly ahead. ...mind you this is CHEAPassgamer.

Pretty much. It's a solid MMO with no sub fee. They keep the sales moderate and few because that's where they're making their money. This isn't a pay to win game, the cash shop is almost entirely cosmetic with a couple shortcut items and mission packs. You get what you pay for.

Both Civ 4 and 5 are Steam codes, and they're Steamplay games - they have Windows and Mac versions included, you just have to install the Steam client on your Macbook. The only issue might be the system requirements.

Civ 4: http://store.steampo...d.com/app/3900/
Civ 5: http://store.steampo...d.com/app/8930/

The links are for the standalone versions of the game, not the gold editions, but the system requirements should be the same as the Complete / Gold packs.

X-Com is Windows only.


I'm only interested in Civ 5. And I have a MacBook Pro, I'll be able to run it no problem. When will be the best day to buy it?

When GOG fixes up an old game to run on modern 'puters, GOG has limited exclusivity for that version, then it shows up on Steam, GG, etc. GOG version means just that, it's the GOG-fixed up version. (you may or may not get GOG-updates, if any, or feelies)

Tony,
Can you please pick up that "Red Phone" and use the direct line to German Amazon and ask them what this is about? Is it some scripting error or do they know something. You can just wink with an emoticon if you can't confirm anything officially.

If it's just a mistake then they need to stop playing with Ugan Schnizzer!

Thanks

In Darrith's post that's linked to in the OP it lists under 5/16-5/31

Star Trek (comes w/ free copy of Inversion) - $24.99

but there is nothing on either games product page to indicate this deal is actually live/happening. Just wondering if it is actually a deal/if it will actually be a deal before the end of the sale.

Thanks as always!

It's live. The product page is showing the correct price, Inversion isn't mentioned though. But you should get it as it is stated on the Mayhem Deals page.

On top of it all (under 'Bonus offers') it says "Purchase Star Trek and get a credit good towards a free download of Inversion."

Amazon should add the info to the Star Trek page though.
