Any thoughts on the title? I never really tried many 4X and/or Space Sim games.

A definite bargain in my opinion, you can get a lot of mileage out of the X games if you put in a bit of effort, and these latest ones are quite beautiful. However, it's largely not worth having both titles as they're extremely similar.

The retail key for Terran Conflict activates in Steam, by the way. I picked up a copy of X3: TC on eBay about two months ago for $5 delivered, and just whacked the key into Steam. Could help someone willing to save a few pennies by waiting a few days.

I'm not sure if Impulse will provide a CD key, but I would expect them to, and it should work in Steam just fine.

Also, check out the modding community! :)

I keep hearing good things but I'm not sure if it'll be my cup of tea. Is combat more like EvE online or Freelancer?

I read this thinking it meant "Xbox 360 Gold for 75% off"

Pretty fun game(s). Lots of options and a great modding community. There's a number of mods out there to increase the amount of conflict going on in the universe and give the game more of a combat focus for those who want it.

Ended up buying this, just waiting for the download. :( probably won't get to play it much with finals starting to be a pressing matter next week. Still thanks OP.

X3 Gold deal ended, today's deal is Total Annihilation for 50% off... which is the same price it has been ever since the Thanksgiving sale started.

Seems odd that some of their daily deals would just be highlighting a currently on-going sale price, but I guess that means this list of upcoming daily deals from their Impulse Now! client might be real:


Dragon Age looks like the only surprise on the list, it would be $25 for the ultimate edition if it's true. That's the order they're in on the servers, so assuming they go in that order, Dragon Age will land on Sunday. Of course, these might just be placeholders that they plan on updating before they leave the office for the holiday, or they might have further images at a different location. We'll have to wait to see.

Well for those of you that got X3, I recommend just skipping reunion and playing TC. TC has a lot better interface, and is still getting patched and improved. Lots of mods out there as well.
