Stronghold 3 Gold activates on steam $5.25 after coupon.

A review on the site says a recent update has finally made the game playable.

http://www.greenmang...y/stronghold-3/


I suppose I will have to go back and try it again at some point but man that was one dog of a game. I have over 1,000 games on Steam and that is tied with Game of Thrones: Genesis as my most regretted purchase.

I still feel like with all the other stuff they have on sale + 75% off, the Steam big picture deals going on, Amazon sega bundles, multiple indie bundles etc there are just much better ways you can spend $5.

does the 35% voucher you get after preordering has an expiration date?

I believe it's supposed to be 21 days.

I'm with you on that one. I got Stronghold 3 in a 2 for $15 from Get Games (I think that was the sale) with Binary Domain. I just pretend I paid $15 for Binary Domain which was surprisingly really fun.

Is $10.50 the cheapest Endless Space has been?

Unless you count a probable mistake sale that was quickly yanked from Gamersgate a week or so ago and required finagling buying blue coins with the G2PO code then using those coins to get the (now dead) IGN discount and G2PO discount again to get it significantly cheaper then yes.

TL;DR Yes.

TL;DR Yes.

Quickly yanked? It was a daily deal and was $10 without any "finagling". The codes/coins just dropped it to $7.40. No IGN code? In a rush? Just using code G2PO took it under $10.

It was replaced as the daily a couple of hours before the next-day rollover, but I assumed they'd simply run out of codes because $7.40 was the cheapest yet by far. :)

If it's not $7.49 in the Steam sale in a couple of weeks, a third-party are bound to hit that area (again) in January.

I've been playing it recently, and it does feel better as a $7.50 game than a $10 game, if that makes any sense. :P Good, not great!

$7.50 in the nearish future is a real possibility so if you aren't going to play it right now, I would hold out. I tried the game on the free weekend and I really enjoyed it, but still probably a $7.50 purchase for me.

When I checked when the deals flipped at midnight it was there then in the morning it got replaced with something else. I didn't notice it being the deal the day before and I was checking there every day during that black Friday week. To me that was quickly yanked but maybe you saw something different in the Asia region. I don't know.

If it's not 75% off, or less that $10, I ain't buying it!

Wow... the price on Secret World has dropped so much. Part of me wants to get it at this price and enjoy one month relatively cheap. Another part wants to wait to see when/if it goes F2P.

Then there's the small possibility EA considers it an overall failure and shuts it down completely.

EA's still got Warhammer Online going and that has even less people playing than the Secret World. You're might be right about it going free to play soon though, they probably should have done that from the beginning.

I'd assume not as it's an EA product so I assume it's going to be Origin.

I played it and it was fun for the month but I didn't feel compelled to continue my sub. Part of the issue was a dorked up chat client that made the world feel pretty lonely (I like an amount of OOC chatter even if I'm soloing).

I was in the TSW Beta - and the game's like 30 GB....
...do you really wanna download all of that? :P

I'd rather have that huge-sized game on disc(s)....

I'd rather download in just one large chunk and not have to fuss with installing discs and patching and all that mess. This is the 21st century. :-P

Disclaimer: This is an opinion and is worth about as much as anyone else's opinion on the internet, which is not a damned thing, so you really don't need to argue it back.

Anyway passing because it doesn't activate on Steam. Yes I am one of those.

Good point; point taken.

I actually had to DL this monster when I was in the TSW Beta (week before game's official launch and NO NDA's at that time) and my Net-connection was decent enough to suit me (it's much better now), so....ummm....yeah; that DL was NOT fun. Took a FEW hours.

Sure, you could always backup your game folder to another HDD; a lot of DVD's; or one BR disc, if need be - and be all up-to-date and whatnot.

Disclaimer: This is an opinion and is worth about as much as anyone else's opinion on the internet, which is not a damned thing, so you really don't need to argue it back.

Even though we don't always agree and don't always see eye-to-eye on things, I do like reading your opinions.

Anyway passing because it doesn't activate on Steam. Yes I am one of those.

For me, it's a MMO - I don't need extra Steam DRM on top of the annoying "Always online DRM."

I think this TSW game would've been a game I really would've liked to play like Torchlight 2, HG: London, Diablo 2, etc allow -- play offline if I feel like it or online if I feel like it. It just feels like....some of the things in this game (i.e. the superb voice-acting & writing) usually do lend itself better to a SP-atmosphere & experience.

Has anyone had problems checking out? I've bought a lot of stuff from them in the past, but I'm unable to get my paypal or my CC to work directly with their website. It's quite infuriating to be missing out on the deals...

Hah, I did the same thing, thinking $10 for 30 days of checking it out was an OK deal.

So does GMG give you the 35% off future game if you pre-ordered a game discounted? I bought the Tomb Raider by using the 30% off code last Sunday and didn't receive anything.

Risen 2 was less than excellent upon release. But.. PB patched it and fixed a number of things and the mod community has done some good stuff with it as well, including an unofficial patch and a number of fixes for the weird graphic issues. I've been enjoying the game a fair bit. I am about 10 hours in, now. A fantasy pirate setting is unique for CRPG's and they pull it off well. If you liked Risen 1, you'll probably like it.

The forum with the fan stuff is here: http://forum.worldof...ons-and-Editing All you need is the Risen 2 Mod Starter. It'll pull a list of what's available and you can look at the readmes to see what you'd want to install. :)
