#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"?

Seems like an outdated ad.

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.

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.

They seem very reluctant to put Cuphead on sale.

Here are the new deals for today:

 

:switch:

Flinthook - $10.04 - 33% Off - Ends 7/12

 

 

I might have to jump on Flinthook though I have plenty to play that seems like a good price.

 

Wasn't Flinthook on sale for $7.50 just a month or two ago?

I love how the price on the Astro Bears Party went UP since the last time it was on sale...because it's more popular? lmao..

lol I got that for 50 cents using some gold coins

That's definitely a "this is fun for 2 minutes" kinda game

It looks like a Mario Party game except that the dev team could only think of one mini game.

I like the fact i can choose what I like, and not be told what is “good” and what shouldnt be allowed on the system.

What one person likes doesnt mean everyone likes.

This is true. My point however is that by turning this into modern day Steam, it's actually MORE difficult to conveniently find quality games. All you have to do is look at Steam to understand what this eShop is slowly becoming. Nintendo has stated they want 20-30 games per week on eshop. That tells me they value quantity over quality - another Steam marketplace failure. I don't see how anyone could think that's a good idea for the regular gamer (unless you think the likes of the Apple app store and Steam are healthy marketplaces, of course).

It's a bubble that's going to burst and may possibly hurt even the most reputable of 3rd party developers. There is such a thing as too much, especially in this industry.

There's no denying that Steam isn't as healthy of a store because they have oversaturated the marketplace. Repeating this history would be an oversight on Nintendo's part.

Gonner's pretty cool. So is Oxenfree. Overall though, pretty damn underwhelming. I never thought I'd say this, but thank jebus for my XL backlog.

And prior to the switch the complaint was nintendo wouldnt put many games in the store from 3rd parties..

All they are doing (nintendo/steam/apple/android/sony/etc) are giving people the ability to put their game out there for the masses to see.

 

I agree. Not trying to imply they are being nefarious as Steam has been accused of. I just think it's a poor business practice. There needs to be a middle ground, which would involve a healthy amount of curationNintendo has historically done a great job with this, then stopped halfway through the 3ds's life when they started putting horrible fodder on the eshop. I'm always up for new and inventive games, but since Nintendo obviously knows what the difference between a good and bad game is, they need to be more involved and more picky.

 

If you were looking for a tent in Wal-mart and there were literally hundreds of brands ranging from Coleman all the way down to every garage-dwelling small business, customers would have a more stressful time figuring out the best options. The bubble would grow, sales and consumer confidence falls, and some of even the best tent makers would go out of business. This is where Wal-mart comes in as a buyer-curator to ease the process. A little market research should be done before selling to customers. Nintendo does not seem very interested in this in regards to the eShop, and that's disappointing. 

 

That's how it's come to having Astro Bears headlining every sale. It's gross and reminds me of the Apple app store from 5 years ago (idk what it's like today)

Minecraft- I think this is the new update that allows cross play with Xbox and pc, yes? Will have to try it out.

They totally should have launched the update alongside a livestream of Phil Spencer and Reggie playing co-op on their respective consoles.

These games lists are looking a lot like Steam nowadays. A bit nauseating, really. I remember the days where, if a game was put on the eShop, it was most likely good. Now a good game is the exception.

...Mario rabbids, I loved it, thought it was a little long but decent challenge at times and a fun way to incorporate a ubisoft property I don't care at all about.

I agree it was long in the tooth. There are some missions I found to be purposefully difficult and my cynical self couldn't help but feel like it was padding. The mechanics themselves are solid, original, and best of all, fun, however the pacing needs work.

LOL BINGO?? So much for Wii being the center of entertainment in nursing homes.

 

Very tempted to pick up Owlboy and/or Mantis Burn Racing. Both look cool. Though I never liked the original $25 pricepoint for Owlboy; $17 is closer to an MSRP than a sale price for me :(

 

Mantis Racing reminds me of that Motorstorm RC game on Vita - what a gem! One of my very few platinum trophies too.

Thanks Frisky. I also apologize. The internet makes people appear less human and I resent it wholly because it gives us an edge to not be as polite as we would be in person. This is a systemic problem that we all need to deal with. Some are affected more than others (hint: me, as in I'm part of it) but we're all in it together nonetheless.

#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.

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.

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?
