Tempted by some of the GoG offerings. Going to sleep on it, though, and possibly forget tomorrow.

GTA Complete $12.50 was like last weekend or the weekend before.... It'll hit that price on the Steam Summer sale, ~4 July (give or take a couple weeks)


Okay, yeah, I remember now. I guess I'll just get my GTA IV fix on Xbox 360 and wait for San Andreas to go on sale for the PC. I have it for the original Xbox but I want a better resolution and a further draw distance and stuff.

I think GTA5 should be. Looks amazing.
{drools}

We really need a PC port of this.

Michael seems to bring back some of that Tommy Vicetti (Vice City) type of style;
Franklin's story looks like it'll take me back to CJ and San Andreas;
and I'm thinking Trevor looks to be on the more outlandish side to try and bring back some of the old GTA insanity and also involve The Lost biker gang.

Hold on, while I drool some more....
{more drooling}


I don't want a port. Not after the disgrace that is GTA IV on the PC and the way it runs. I want a straight-up non-port, like Max Payne 3.

Ouch, was just reading the user reviews for the new HOMM expansion and it sounds like its launch has been another DRM clusterfuck. I think at the rate they're going I'll wait until the complete pack is released and discounted, and then see if it's even playable, or still riddled with bugs. I don't have any overriding urge to support developers and publishers putting out this kind of product when I have so many great games in my backlog.

Best deal on Receiver is through Steam at 20% for the next 2 hours. You might find trades at $3 or 2 TF2 keys. I have no comment on the content.

I'm with you. I've actually held off on playing HOMMVI until now, I think I can wait a bit longer.

Hmm... if only GS had a 20% off coupon...

I don't follow Double Fine too closely, but they don't seem to run too many good discounts... I'm guessing Brutal Legend might not go below 66% off this year? Thoughts?

The PC version launched at $20, it doesn't have as far to drop. Digital versions don't consume shelf space needed for the next overhyped game. Console game prices have a strong interaction with the "used" game market, something PC doesn't have. Also given the years gap, I just don't see too much applicability of your point.

Don't have time to read this now, but my air-cooled (hyper212) i5-2500k is an absolute beast. I overclocked the hell out of it very easily and it's completely stable. I hit 4.3GHz with zero issues, if I had the time and energy I'm sure I could have got it to 4.5. I can't imagine needing much more at this point - especially since I'm not encoding video or anything of that likes anymore.

I think I am gonna start that Excel Spreadsheet on my backlog and a list in order of games I wanna tackle.

After looking at that GTA V trailer, I realized I never bet GTA IV or Episodes. I need to do that before Saints Row 4 comes out :lol:. Only way I will do that is if I make a Spreadsheet that tells me what to play :lol:.

That or I stop my addiction to Kerbal Space Program which is essentially NASA the game (well creating and flying rockets, visiting other planets, creating space stations, etc). That game is awesome.

Spoiler



I've taken to keeping 20 or so games I am / should be playing in my steam favorites list. Yeah, I too need to get around to EFLC... I'd also suggest you might want to think of prioritzing any games who's online servers longevity is in question (e.g. TDU2).

Then again, sometimes I like having the prior game in my backlog to help me to stave off any impulse to buy the latest one. (...uugh, not more AssCred :lol:)

Except for the obvious need to recoup significant unachieved expected sales on the physical market and the general devaluation of the product (thus it's starting price point). It's clearly going to hit 75% off this year - and probably during Summer Sale. Digital versions may not consume shelf space but they are still expected to hit certain sales marks - and the quickest and easiest way to do that is through discounting. The standard sales curve of a digital item is like 2 weeks long, after that it's sales fall into an average weekly amount, and pretty much only spike on promotion. Given that BL has already been discounted as many times as it has, clearly it's average weekly sales numbers are disappointing. It's also simply put not that great of a game.

The MSRP for Brutal Legend (on consoles) dropped to $20 5 months after its release. Something to consider. Later on, it reached the point where it wouldn't sell, so a few retailers clearanced it off for $2-3. Shelf space does come into factor, but it's more of a case where a game simply isn't selling so it gets massive discounts. I imagine the PC version will be in a similar situation for the digital market.
