does the Gods and Kings expansion fix the extreme lagginess when it comes to the end game? Loading turns takes like 2-3 mins.

Deus Ex worth it for $1.40?


Which Deus Ex?

The original Deus Ex is amazing - and one of the best games ever.
Though, keep this in mind - you should get Kentie's EXE fix, if you want to run it right on modern PC's, to eliminate any weird graphics issues & sound issues (choppy sound, cut-off sound, sound lag issues, etc).
Plus, if you got Win Vista or above, you might want the Kentie's D3D 10 Renderer (see the above link - it's on that page, too).

Deus Ex: Invisible War (AKA Deus Ex 2) was good, but nowhere even close to the original game's greatness.
While I liked the game and its story and choice options, I DID NOT like unified ammo (major ewwww and I thought it almost broke the game) and its "consolized" inventory system.

You also might want the Deus Ex 1/2 wide-screen program, so you can run either of those at high-resolutions on modern PC's and monitors.

Problem might be if you get any Steam versions of Deus Ex 1 + 2, might be a pain to mod them up properly. Don't know, never tried it - since I own retail copies of both. You might wanna speak to others on how to do that properly, if you wind-up w/ a Steam-version of either of those two.
I always recommend before you do mod any Steam-version of a game up - back-up your entire Steam-version game in its UNMODDED state BEFORE you go ahead to mod it, just in case something goes wrong later; that's so you can always go back to a clean state w/out re-downloading the game in full, if necessary.

Now, about Deus Ex: Human Revolution + Missing Link DLC (which requires Steam) -- FINALLY, Deus Ex series is back to greatness similar to the original Deus Ex. Awesome game and story.

Similar to Steam: usually within 10 minutes, although it may take longer.
12GMT meaning 1200 rather than 0000



Thanks so much for that!

For me steam is like clockwork. Normally 10:02 AM PST, 10:04 during this sale (through honestly I'm no longer excited enough to bother checking right when it turns -- and during the big sales it occasionally takes them a little to correct not-discounted enough gaffees. Amusingly they pulled the Sonic Classics from the sonic pack within a few min. >.>)

Civ 5 is one of few games (mostly strategy) that are really hard on the CPU.

I've never had any trouble with Civ5 on my Q9300. Do you have a quad core of some sort? Btw the steam punk scenario that came with Gods and Kings is fantastic fun.

GMG won't accept my paypal account or credit/debit cards because apparently my bank thinks GMG is a gambling site. :(
Anyone willing to purchase XCOM for $17.50 for me? I'd be happy to pay you via paypal first, as along as you have some good rep here like I do.

Try going through your phone and paying with paypal that way. Someone pages back said to try it because it works. I couldn't get any payment to go through until I tried with my phone and it went through no problem. No idea why it would work that way but it does.

I remember what you are talking about and I think it had gotten better for me, but one thing to note is that they pushed a big patch around the time G&K came out that basically had all the fixes in G&K but not the new content so basically if you try the game now (assuming you have automatic updates enabled) and still notice that issue then G&K won't fix it.

I often see prices on Steam that don't update for 5-10 minutes. GMG are usually very quick to change the prices (and fix mistakes like the $0.01 Saint's Row pack - unless it actually sold out :lol:), but their homepage isn't updated for 5 minutes or so (sometimes longer, though) and it's a pain to find deals elsewhere.

Same thing here. No key. Their automated support e-mail said something about waiting 2-4 days + a few more because of the holidays...yikes. I hope this gets rectified sooner than later. $4.20 was the perfect price for me...Steam's had this at $9.99 forever.

This does happen occasionally with GMG. No need to worry too much though, they always come through with keys within a couple days.

Called the number on the back of my card, told the hot (voiced) chick who answered my dilemma. She took the hold off my card. Told me to wait 90 seconds and then try again. She kept me on the line trying to sell me a new card, so 90 seconds of hot voice later, I'm trying the charge.

Went through perfectly. Confirmed its going to be an international charge. Don't know why GMG can't have fixed that by now by opening some kind of US wing or something. If they did that, poof, all the mysterious declines will be gone.

Anyways, can't complain about the X-Com pricing. Very, very hot. I let a few GMG deals come and go because of that transaction fee nonsense, but even with a 3% markup, that's a damn good deal (once I sold the three freebie games I had sitting there not being used and combined that with the discount on top of the discount). $16 for a hot, hot title that activates on Steam is hot. ...hot. (One more for the road.)

What finally pushed me over the edge and forced me to go to the trouble of getting my card situated and my CC online setup ...setup was the Gods & Kings 85% off. I mean, wow. That's crazy.

And awesome. Alas, Amazon Tony gave that kind of pricing to coupon holders and not to regular customers. He cannot win them all. If only Amazon DD PM'ed GMG, we'd all be BFF and live happily ever after.

But it looks like I'm going to be a dirty cheater again on Sunday. A dirty, dirty cheater...

Also, I added the GMG Blog to my regular check routine for deals. Just in case.

Grabbed XCOM. I've been interested in it for awhile, and after watching the guys from Giant Bomb play it, and then give it GOTY honors (which shocked me), this sale was too good to pass up.

Just had a thought -- what if the banks were right and GMG was actually a quasi-legal Euro company that will soon take our money and cause our steam keys to be revoked?

Oh, wait, we already have one of those...
