#13912045 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

Posted by CheepyDee on 22 December 2017 - 02:12 PM in Video Game Deals

Wtf? Why are some of the OP's links sending me to realtor.com lol... Update those links. This thread is supposedly where one should go to look at the list of Steam games on sale but no go. What is the point of this thread anyway?

All of the answers you are looking for will be revealed by answering one simple question, 1 x 1 = ?

so the reason why the link redirects me to realtor.com is because "1"?

They seem very reluctant to put Cuphead on sale.

Amazing that Destiny 2 is that cheap a little over six months after release. I’d say that was a fail.


My take is that they botched the end game so much that it became a mainstream meme, so Activision/Bungie just killed it and put the resources into the 3rd game. If I were Bungie I'd want to get this crap trilogy wrapped up ASAP so their contract can end and they can jump ship. I have a feeling Bungie will never work with Activision again.

Let other thread makers be aware: thoughtfully using different types and colors of fonts goes a looooong way especially in a deals post this big. Thanks.

Seems like an outdated ad.

why does the initial post only show last week's? 




#14024214 Target Clearance Thread XXII

Posted by CheepyDee on 13 July 2018 - 01:41 PM in Video Game Deals

I appreciate the work that gets put into this thread however Im not sure what use it has for the grand majority of us since is YMMV. If you're coming here, then going to Target frequently in mere hopes they'll have the particular clearance game, you're wasting your time.

Anybody have any luck?


Yeah, it worked for me.

It has been this way for years now, so it is obviously a fine business strategy. 

 

So any poor behavior magically becomes "obviously" acceptable merely because "it's [already] been this way for years"?

 

 

waiting about 2 years to save 20 - 40 dollars isn't much of a deal if you really wanted to play the game at launch

Speaking for yourself, I suppose. Guess I've outgrown this "GOTTA GET NOW WHILE IT'S FRESH" mentality. The point still stands: EA is not invoking good faith towards its most valuable consumers. So as a result, now I'm increasingly becoming one of their invaluable customers. Not making an empirical statement, simply sharing how it affects me and its result.

Great price of Shadow of War but I'll wait for the inevitable BB $16 w/ GCU sale.

 

Valkyria Chronicles Remastered is fun but it's pretty buggy and cutscenes tend to skip at times. Overall it's a poor port with a mediocre texture upgrade.

 

VC will be dirt cheap soon - I'd wait. I got the PS4 digital version in a cheap Humble Bundle a few months ago. Calling it - $5 by September.

Yup. I was gonna buy it but nope.

It was $24 in Dec 2017 lmao. Didn't even have to look very hard. I swear I saw it for $17 during a flash sale but i'd have to keep looking to confirm. WIth these prices, they're essentially charging you for the free NEXT update that everyone else gets (got my copy dirt cheap at Best Buy in March).

 

A rather scumbag move IMO, but the business rationale behind it makes sense.

I love how everyone is coyly raising the price of No Man's Sky back up, as if to pretend the glorified early access launch never happened xD

BF1 Revolution - $15
BF1 season pass - $12.50

Witcher 3 CE - $20
Witcher 3 Season Pass - $12.50

Because nothing convinces you to support a game early more than seeing those who didn't get it early get the far better deal.

Who cares? Seriously. Who?

I care about that more than care about what device you type your forum posts on xD

And TBH I looked up the difference between steel and metal because I was curious ("cared"). And in this context, no, hardly a difference. Since steel is a variation of metal, a steel book could conceivable also be called a metal book, but a metalbook cannot be called a steelbook.

The more you....know?

stubborningly waiting for A Hat in Time to come to Switch. At this point if you make a game like that and don't bring it to the platform, you're pretty dumb making a pretty big mistake.

Everyone on that GoW kick. I still need to play most of the originals..........


IMO they haven't aged very well, and certainly aren't as mechanically sound as this latest one. 1 and 2 feel "floaty" today, as does 3 though not as much and it has a slightly deeper combat system.

nothing is particularly 'easy' to fix in a live store environment. I mean, yeah, sure, the actual bug is easy to fix. but first it has to get to the top of a priority list, get a tech assigned to it, get fixed, be qa'd in a test environment, rolled up into a larger update...

You don't just fix bugs in a store like PSN. You jump through many, many hoops first.

Doesn't seem like a bug. This is always the case. Always has been. Tells me something is fundamentally wrong with the code. Regardless, if it's indeed a bug, it takes this long to fix it? Come on now.

what do you think a bug is? i mean, you're literally describing a bug ["something is fundamentally wrong with the code"] then saying it doesn't sound like a bug.  bugs don't just pop up out of nowhere, they're hidden in the code. 

 

No, a bug is when two or more functional lines of code collide and create an unforseen consequence.

 

This is not that. The code itself is not written properly. It's not a bug, it's fundamentally improper coding. Big difference.

Big sale. Huge sale. And when I say huge, I mean HUGE. You're gonna love it. You're gonna love the biggest sale of all big sales.

Never. My theory is that is sorts by base price rather than current/sale price.

That's one of the dumbest things I've heard in a while. Seems like something I would've been able to fix in a Visual Basic course.

I view trophy hunting as a sort of collect-a-thon. 

 

People comparing these to literal trophies are missing the point; we could call PSN trophies "starberries" and starberry enthuisiasts will want to collect as many as they could.

 

A platinum trophy tells me "wow, this person knows just about everything there is to know about this game" and that's about it. Trophy wars also made for fun competition. As someone who once cared deeply for trophies, they have absolutely nothing to do with showing off (unless you're directly engaging in a competition) or collecting something of value.

Received a $10 code that expires the end of the month...I know their aim is to incite me to spend extra cash but probably better to take the chance on a random indie title or two for a few bucks a piece.

 

Any recommendations?

 

 

The weird promo page that only lists 10 games a page and can't be sorted by platform is garbage.

Yeah the console stores in general are a pain to navigate. For me, the worst is when you add an item to the cart, select "continue shopping" only for it to kick you to the top of the menu after scrolling down for 5 minutes. And at least with the eShop, you're not constantly bombarded by ads and DLC pushing.

Isn't the psn code, just a code to redeem? It literally just adds $10 to your wallet.

Hoping I misread it. Now that you mention it, yeah, of course it probably applies to the code itself, not the funds. Here's to hoping I was the dumb one.
