I know it's not exactly in the festive spirit, but I've been waiting forever for a deal on Vampire the Masquerade: Bloodlines. Anyone know if it's been on sale before?


Once, not this past Halloween but the one before it. I was a bit miffed it wasn't on sale this last Halloween as I missed it before.

Ugh... told myself I wouldn't be buying anymore games after I got DA:O UE but ended up getting Monkey Island and now NWN2... XD

I'll just reiterate what I've said before in the thread. There are some big things that bring down Mirror's Edge (combat is a bit awkward, story is a little light, cutscenes are... Distracting...) but aside from that, it's in my top ten games of all time list. The city-scape is so beautiful and vibrant, which helps drive the idea that the government in the game is trying to hide all the dirt and grime and life which makes a world real. The free-running is amazing and you get a great sense of speed. It's a bit biased since I love the game so much and look past it's flaws, but for $5, it's definitely worth it in my eyes.



Thanks, even if you are biased, your "top ten of all-time" has to be equal to my "worth 5 bucks". I watched a couple of game-play vids, and it looks like a good change of pace.

Anyone expericing issues with Serious Sam? I start the game up and it just boots back to my desktop.

I'm waiting on this as well so I can stop using my disc copy.

Buy it man you won't regret it 2.49 is a steal for that game!

Still heavily considering NWN 2 I just want to make sure it's not a mess like the Oddbox.

Has anyone been able to install and play the Steam version yet?

Killing Floor shows up for $5.71 to me, not $7 like someone said before. Region prices?

Torn on NWN2. On one hand, I bought it AND MotB retail when they first came out (never beat MotB due to...laptop issues). On the other hand, I can't seem to find either key.

Is KOTOR worth playing if I mainly like RPGs in the style of Fallout 3/NV, Oblivion, and Mass Effect?

KotOR is made by BioWare (y'know, Mass Effect, Dragon Age, Baldur's Gate, MDK, NWN, Jade Empire...) if that makes anyone's decision easier.

Oddboxx is half ports, though, plus the games are pretty old. Despite that, I'm also curious about any "new to Steam" issues or anything with NWN2.

Because its an earlier Bioware game, its a very stripped down version of later games, like Mass Effect. I couldn't get past the lake of real time combat. You don't shoot the enemy, you click the shoot button and it does a dice roll as to whether you hit him. I hate games where you queue up your combat actions instead of just doing them using my skill.

I think anyone that's played later Bioware games without having played the earlier ones first will find it very very difficult to go back and enjoy the more rudimentary version of later games.

Ah yes good point, I keep refreshing the steam forum page for NWN2 to see what people are saying.

http://forums.steamp...play.php?f=1060

Some people with Win 7 64 bit were having a corrupted model/crashing issue but, a patch from Steam fixed that.


Lots of bitching about the lack of Mysteries of Westgate but, it's explained it is not an expansion plus was made by a completely different company.

Is Killing Floor worth it if I already have the L4D games? (I know their different but I'm asking if their so different and if its good enough that I need to add another zombie fps to my collection) Also leaning heavily towards serious sam. Seems like a nice bit of mindless epic fun for $4.

I'm trying my best to resist it. Telling myself that I'll probably never get around to it until next year (when it'll probably be on sell again) helps.

I'll throw out some input on some of the deals I've already played:

*Mirror's Edge $5 - Buy it. It's such a cool concept (FPP - First Person Parkour), it works great and once you get the feel for how Faith moves, you can do some pretty wild moves. Can be a little disorienting because of the perspective, though (doing flips actually flips your view).
*Machinarium $3 - BUY IT. Wonderful point and click adventure that is just bursting at the seams with charm.
*Killing Floor - It is really nothing like L4D 1/2. You face increasingly more difficult waves of zombie-type mutants with the other players, and buy/upgrade equipment in between. The accuracy is great, the teamwork is essential - find a choke point and go back to back - and the players are cool. IMO it's totally worth playing. A lot.
*Serious Sam - I played the original game strictly co-op back when it was "new" and it's one of the best experiences I've had gaming. It just gets over the top insane as it goes on, in a good way. This game was made for playing with friends, so I'd advise making sure you have someone to play with before buying. For this price, hand out gifts.

Pretty strongly considering NWN2; never finished 1 though. Also in for the KF DLC.

No purchases today. I already own KOTOR, Machinarium, and Serious Sam 1 & 2 in HD (wish I would've waiting for the Gold to go on sale to get the originals too). NWN2 is tempting but I can wait on it. At first I considered Killing Floor but I'm a scared-y cat and don't really see myself playing it much.


I gifted my cousin Super Meat Boy when it first went on sale and he doesn't have a Wired Xbox 360 controller like me but he did just buy a PS3. I thought someone mentioned a mod or drivers to allow you to play certain PC games with a PS3 controller? Will this work for SMB? How do you do it? He wants to play but that game is impossible with a keyboard.

It's called MotionJoy. I'm not clear enough on any info to give you except for the name. D:

Only thing I am thinking about picking up today is Mirrors Edge. I have heard a lot of conflicting views on it. Trying not to bite on game I am on the edge about because I have enough games that I want to play but do not have the time as it is. Will probably pass and holdout for the summer/next christmas sale.

Mirrors Edge is a hate it or love it type game. I personally loved it playing through a no gun run and having the controls down.

Mass Effect is essentially a KOTOR sequal without the Star Wars license. Just ask yourself if you want to play an older Mass Effect with less eye candy but with star wars. Note: there isn't any indication of the awful ME1 inventory system. I don't know what possessed bioware with that one. :roll:
