Go make your thread to move into the Master Trading Lists and let me (or any mod) know when it's been created.

Looks like I'm a little late on that one. Carry on. :dunce:

Not to be that guy, but isn't the four-pack just what the price of a Steam four-pack should normally be?

$20 x 3 = $60
(Pack is 4 for the price of 3)

Edit: For example, a Borderlands 4-pack is $90, or 3 x $30).

So in other words, you're not getting a pre-order discount, exactly. If you were, the four-pack would be $54 (3 x $18), or $13.50 per unit.

The 4-pack is indeed always going to cost $60. But you still get the preorder bonuses. Plus, $15 is better than $20 or $18.

True enough. If you're looking to get the game at (or more accurately, 24 hours before) launch, then this is definitely the way to go... But on the other hand, it's hard to imagine that there won't be a sale sometime pretty soon, nor is it hard to imagine life without extra hats.

It's been a long time since Armageddon. Glad Team17 is bringing 2D PC Worms back.

...nor is it hard to imagine life without extra hats.


If Team17/Valve wanted to really have these fly odd the virtual shelf, they would offer the hats as TF2 crossovers. Fish-head Engie FTW!

Quick browsing through the thread I saw the word hats and immediately perked up. Then I noticed that it wasn't TF2 hats, and my excitement went away. I'll wait until this is cheaper to buy, though the 4-pack price is decent.

They're actually looking into that, though it depends on whether Valve accepts or not.

Super excited for this.

I'm trying to convince a couple of bros to do a 4-pack with me, but if that doesn't work out, I'd love to do a group-buy here on CAG.

A Mac version has been announced, but it won't be released until after the PC version. So eventually the Steam version will probably work on both platforms.

Only a few days left to preorder and get the bonuses. The game comes out on Thursday, though preorders get it on Wednesday. ~ ~

No fish-head engie, sadly. However, order "before Thursday, September 2nd" to get...

Thanks for the news, Cheapo! It's a shame they didn't get the word out on the Team Fortress 2 stuff sooner.
