#10423930 The Steam Deal Thread V7 - The soda wars have ended, but the deals rage on.

Posted by mjontrix on 31 March 2013 - 09:32 AM in Video Game Deals

My answer is simpler. I just don't want to be stabbed by wayward, rebellious knives and forks as I attempt to unload.

So, handle up.


What about sporks? Handle down or point down? Or should I place them sideways to be safe :)

OT: is hitman worth the price or should I wait for it to hit the $7.50 range? I have a massive backlog though...

And is there any steam calculator working? I need to keep my e-peen above 9000$...



#10404187 The Steam Deal Thread V7 - The soda wars have ended, but the deals rage on.

The 5th is supposedly from Half Minute Hero (heard that second hand) and the 7th is from Recettear

A bunch of us were talking about Recettear a few pages back. I can recommend it for the price it's at, but it has been cheaper in the past, particularly when it was in an steam indie bundle of 5 games for $5. The translators expressed regret over the deal later on, I think, so I don't know if it'll go under $5 again.


For Recettear, I believe that they usually offer a Carpe Fulgur pack during the steam summer/winter sale - so wait for that if you don't have Fortune Summoners or Chantelise :)

The atmosphere in Bioshock was great. The people and the story it wove was actually pretty interesting. Certainly worth the $7.49 I paid for both games in an Amazon bundle. ;)


Agreed - except I had to play it on a 360 that occasionally glitched up - but it was worth it! The only problem is that the vita-chambers made it far too easy (And I didn't realize that there was a patch to disable them)

When ya are short on cash and gotta learn to budget, the obvious solution is to spend more on a solution that you have on the problem :lol:


LOL this - isn't that how Budget Planners make lots of money xD

OH yeah there's a new thread - finally got some time to post :) And when does CAG 3.0 happen?

PS - why are people buying Bioshock Infinite now? It's only going to go to 75% off eventually :) Or 90% if gamersgate have another glitch again...

Ridge Racer Unbounded (geez I hate that name) "Full Pack" (Steamworks) on GG for $14. Comes with 4 DLCs. I don't recall it being cheaper anywhere else. I don't have the 20% "D'oh Discount" though which would cut it to $11 and change... sad. Ah well, it'll hit 75% off /$5 someday.


It's ridge racer. RIIIGE RAAAACER xD

So does the doh discount stack work at the UK sites? If so I might pick it up... I any CAG reviews? Also what's with this CAG 3.0 I hear about?

Did anyone else get the copy of Modern Warfare 3 like new that they ordered recently? I got mine today and would hardly put it in like new condition. It has the manual how.ever the top right corner of the case is turn and stretched like someone was trying to peel off a used gamestop sticker. The disc itself has about 10 fingerprints on the back and the center ring where it says xbox has cracks not from the middle out but in a circular motion where it looks like someone tightened way to hard on a cleaning machine. In addition to that theres about a dozen 1/4" scratches on the disc. It installs ok but can't decide whether to send this thing back on principal.


I'd definitely return it - the risk of the disc exploding plus item not being as described should say it all really...

Alan Wake Me When These Jokes Are Over. ;)


You sir win the thread :)

atari and thq should combine for a bankruptcy bundle. pay $1 and get every game they ever made.


We all already own every THQ game (Except MX vs ATV) and the only Atari games that look good are Riddick and Baldur's Gate...

But still, padding out the Steam catalogue - I'm sure one day it''ll save my life, get me a GF, cause the release of HF3 etc...

AND THE STEAM CALCULATOR SITE IS STILL DOWN!

White stuff you say... It's probably from the disk pressing process.... Hopefully xD

Not if you get the special edition. It's much much much easier than the original DMC3. I raced through DMC3 so I could lead right into DMC4, and oops, it's a prequel. It's still definitely worth playing.


More easier? That can't be right - Try Dante must die difficulty then come back to me :)

This sounds like a fun game to play with one's PS2 library.

Posted Image
I'm sure I should finish this one.


The second one isn't as good as the first one :)


So, is it the same case as with lost planet 2? Can you even get the first one on Steam?

It isnt Capcom. Game was made by a fan that does not have anything to do with Capcom.


...Of course, Capcom wouldn't do something as awesome as that LOL - they'd be charging us $1 for a DLC to enable the password system - and then $1 for each password attempt xD

You guys think Steam will ever sell a Sonic bundle for like $5.00? I suddenly want to own all the Sonic titles. I have all of the classic packs, but all I ever play is Kid Chameleon.


For $5 - impossible :) But for $30 - in the realms of possibility...

And as for Aliens:CM (We're all accepting this abbreviation right?) I'm going to hold out and see how the reviews go before getting the game. We've been burned by too many Alien games to buy it on release! (Well, just one actually LOL but it made a dent)

Cubeman is the daily deal today, it's been in a bundle before I believe...

Also, for Enchanced Steam it would be cool if it had the daily deal with a green border if you already owned it :)


Spoiler

Re: The Steambox.

I think the good news from the consumer end is that you have a very lucrative company with a dominant share of the digital download market pushing for Linux viability. Possible benefits:

* Breaking up the near virtual monopoly Microsoft has with Windows and forgoing people's need to pay for an OS (Steam's massive market leverage will force a lot of AAA publishers to start making Linux versions).

* Make 'PC Gaming' more affordable to people who exclusive/majority play on consoles. Of course this all depends on how much it will cost and what exactly is included hardware-wise.

* Drive down the price of PC components, GPU, etc (dependent on the point above).


My only wish is that they allow the Steam Workshop to work on the Steambox as well... and increase the Max mod filesize limit!

As for the OS argument though - as long as Linux is still as unfriendly as it is (I use it on a server, and there's no way an average (ie non-techie) person who's used to using Windows could use it); people won't switch. Just adding an app dock would do wonders for distros...

But having game devs making games for linux can only be a good thing.

No clue about Metro Last Light or South Park though. Those aren't available for Pre-order on Steam, just coming soon. THQ has pre-orders up on their site but I don't see it explicitly mentioned as Steam somewhere so I supposed they could always hand you a shiny new Origin key when those release.


If they don't release South Park on steam then I'm definitely cancelling my preorder with amazon - I wouldn't trust EA with a 10 ft pole.

I wonder though - what if Valve bought the license to Saints Row (Maybe Gabe was a fan of that video - ) Or Metro?

I just want to go on record as saying the best abbreviation for The Witcher 2 is Witcher 2. TW2 is definitely too confusable with Two Worlds 2.


Fair enough - Witcher 2 isn't too much to type out (unless you're using a smartphone and you've got gigantic fingers and keep hitting the wrong keys)...

Also can't believe steamcalculator is down - I NEED to know if my account value has decreased or not /sarcasm

And as for Valve and DRM, the simple solution is wait for a big name game to be released on Steam with crappy DRM, and then get the pitchforks out and march to Valve HQ! Or just put a thread on reddit, that demands Steam to point out whether a game uses 3rd party DRM or not.

Anyone want to explain in small words how I could go about taking screenshots of games that don't work with F12 and somehow uploading them to Steam?

It's probably more work than I want. :P


Press PrtScn on the keyboard - works better than F12. Then I guess save in mspaint and then upload? It's definitely more work than just using F12...

If you missed it for $4 on ths steam winter sale, GG has Cherry Tree High Comedy Club for $2.72 (DRM-FREE).

Personally I was disappointed with the steam demo. 640x480 resolution, and nowhere near the charm of Persona 3 & 4. I'd been looking forward to this since Spring.


Well fair points for the res (but then again this is an indie game); but comparing it to Persona 3 & 4 is giving it no chance now is it :D

Persona is more of an RPG than a VN adventure like Cherry Tree; you probably should be looking at more into RPGs then (if you desire more of the action charm) or VNs (Chaos;Head and Steins;Gate come to mind; Muv-Luv as well)...

So, is RPG Maker easy to use or is it one of those tools that basically goes against everything that you've learned?

But HiB7 is over now D; Fuuucccckkk

oh well. :< Dungeon defenders and all DLC for about 6 bucks sounded like a really great deal.


You might to able to buy it in the Steam trading thread - someone should be selling their BTA keys... Of course you could be paying a slight premium...
