Dude, we must be slipping; Direct2Drive started Rockstar Week yesterday, and no one's posted anything.

Monday: Manhunt 2 ($4.99)
Tuesday: Grand Theft Auto Collection ($7.50)
Wednesday: Bully: Scholarship Edition ($3.75)
Thursday: Max Payne Collection ($3.75)
Friday: Grand Theft Auto IV Complete Collection ($9.99)

Monday: Manhunt 2, being an AO-rated game, is hard to come by, so the $4.99 might actually be reasonable. (Depends on how much you like your inappropriate content.)

Wednesday: At that price, I highly recommend Bully.

This is the same price as on Steam two weeks ago, except it's not on Steam and GTA I & II are not included. Granted, those can be downloaded directly from RockStar, so for anyone who missed Steam sale and wants the games, this is your second chance.

Son of a bitch, I would've totally bought an AO game at $5 just to have it, and I've never even used D2D before. Better luck next time (if ever) I guess.

Looking to sell codes for The Gunstringer and Fruit Ninja Kinect, together or separately. Message me with your offer.

I'm passing on all of these deals since i felt like i got burned when i bought GTA:SA from GFWL for $3.50 the other day... then steam came out with the whole bundle for a better price. I'm waiting for a steam match + beat.

I ahve 2 questions:

On GFWL, you have to download the game, then do an install... on steam you download the game, and you don't need to install anything, it's already extracted and setup ready to run... how does it wourk on D2D?

Also, have we ever seen a cheaper price on bully on steam?

D2D does user managed installs; I downloaded their Comrade program, but it seems to be more of a GUI than any kind of Steam-like interface.

?



I have a lot of games which I purchased from D2D. You can download each game's installer from your account page directly; using their client is optional. Actually, when you place your order you get a download link to click to immediately download the installer.

I picked up Bully:SE last night and found that there's a patch available for it (below). I haven't installed the game yet, so I'm unsure if D2D offers the patched game or not already:

28 Apr Bully PC Patch 1.200 released!
Published April 28th, 2009 at 11:39 AM PST | Posted by AJ Collins | Added to Bully: Scholarship Edition »
A while back, we reported that Bully had a few problems to do with lots of memory on 64-bit versions of Windows and suggested a temporary fix for it. Well today Rockstar has released patch 1.200 for Bully. The patch address this issue, improves the streaming for objects, and fixes random crashes and lock ups. If you have the game from Steam, it should update automatically. However, retail owners will have to download an updater file. Download the patch from the links below for your region.

Download: English, French, Italian, German, Spanish
Download: Japanese
Download: Russian

I'm hoping today is simply all the previous deals; I missed out on a few because of work.

Admittedly, my wallet's probably not going to hold out until the Steam Holiday Sale.

Max Payne for 3.75...I had these on Xbox, are they that much better on PC?

Not really. Besides some graphics options [as well as the ability to play with a keyboard and mouse], the experience is the same. I love the Max Payne games and Remedy's work in general, but the Max Payne series isn't one that can be revisited often. (The gameplay is quite addicting, though.)

I'd recommend heavily for people who haven't played the games before. Those that haven't played the games in about 10 years may want to revisit them. Those that want the games but can wait until the next Steam sale should do so; Steam offers this pack for the same price, usually as a Daily Deal.

Friday's deal! GTA IV Complete $9.95!! Holy crap, I've got GTA IV already on PC but that's pretty damn insane. Will be tempted for sure.

Yeah, I'm in the same boat. Might the Episodes be cheaper on their own during the Steam Holiday Sale, or is the Complete Edition going to prevent any such thing?

Wow, good finish to the weekly sales. Good job D2D. That will be a freaking long download. Don't wait up for it, just go to bed or out on the town.

I think Steam will probably match this during the Holiday Sale. I could be wrong, but I'm willing to take the gamble; I'm in no rush since I already finished GTAIV on the 360.

Gah, I had to bite on the GTA IV Complete deal. That is an absolute steal.

Must... finish... Risen... first...
