I read through all the fine print and I don't think there is any recourse you have if that happens. Once the end of the Kickstarter hits if funding is met they take your money and it's gone forever so people need to be really confident about the projects and developers they are supporting. I don't think people just looking for cheap game deals should be going around supporting a bunch of Kickstarters without really looking into them because there's no guarantee of an end product.


This. I work there (second row, fourth one in!), and a lot of people seem to treat it as a deals site, but it's not. It's a way to sponsor projects that you think should exist in the world, but those investments can be risky. Make sure the creators are people you can trust to actually deliver what they say they can deliver.

If you're looking for deals, a much better plan is to be patient and wait for the games to come out and hit a bundle. :)

Was wondering the reason of this on the topic? Can you afford not to preorder Torchlight 2?

It's because Torchlight 2 is just that awesome.

Yep, I just got tired of waiting. For what it's worth to people on the fence: assuming most would play it with mods (especially the Overhaul) Steam won't keep track of the time played (just the amount of time you have the launcher) up. Moreover, the Steam overlay doesn't work with it. So if anyone sees it someplace else for cheaper (maybe a boxed version sitting in a bookstore somewhere) you should probably just pick it up there.


Must depend on the mods (I would guess Morrowind script extender since that would be a different executable) because with just the Morrowind Graphics Extender to run at higher resolutions, the Steam overlay works fine and it tracks time played fine.

I'm still thinking about pre-ordering Torchlight II, mainly because I'm on Mac and the only benefit at this point would be getting a free copy of Torchlight, from there wait until Runic releases the Mac version for the game (which they will, but there's no ETA at this point).

@.@

And what if they launch some sort of special deal when the Mac version is released? T_T

I eventually caved and bought Morrowind for $10 several months ago -- I think it was at $5 nearly two years ago but has never hit that price again on Steam.


Yes - It was $4.99 in the 2009/10 winter sale. I bought it for that price on January 3, 2010.

If I had known that it wouldn't be $5 again for over 2 years, I would have found a way to stock up on copies to share with fellow CAGs.

A bit late on this, but here's some Sniper Elite V2 impressions. You can do some cool stuff in addition to just sniping. Setting trip-wire mines in doorways and then luring guys to you, planting land mines on dead bodies (which will blow up other enemies who investigate), or hiding bodies so they won't be found are all quite cool. After the tutorial level and level 2 (which is the demo level), you get some opportunities to just play stealthily if you like. Running and gunning is even an option if you switch to a machine gun.

Still, the sniping is the most fun. It's possible to line up two or more enemies and fire a single shot to kill them, which is so satisfying. You can also snipe through a dead dude's body to get at an enemy. Also, you can even shoot through a dude's nuts if your aim is right... Gruesome!

There is currently a save data bug that can erase your save if you have the Cloud disabled, so don't do that. The devs are working on a fix already. Also, you can't save anywhere, which is a bit console-like but fine with me.

That $30 preorder is a sweet deal, so go for it if you're interested.

Does anybody know if the Commandos Collection from getgamesgo.com for 2.99 works with steam?

edit: nvm I noticed some other titles where it was noted specifically so I guess not, darn.

I'm guessing that's exactly what will happen, or a 50% off or better deal will happen by the time it comes around. I've got enough of a backlog where I can wait on it.

Well, Oblivion GOTY Deluxe [containing ALSO the other 8 DLC's] is MORE expensive ($12.49) than Morrowind GOTY ($10)....
So... :P

Seriously, both Oblivion GOTY Deluxe and Morrowind GOTY can and will take ridiculous amounts of your life away...
They're EASILY worth the $.

I have Oblivion on the PC (non Steam), and I used to own Morrowind on the original x-box. I wanna get Morrowind on PC for mods. I don't even need a Steam copy, but cheapest I can find a boxed copy is $20, and well while $10 is worth it for Morrowind (because it's one of my favorite RPG's of all time), it's been $5 before and I am a CAG after all.

It's not their security. It's fraud from that region. Nuuevem had to do the same thing recently, from what I gather it's more of a PayPal issue than anything.

Man I want Dustforce but I have this nagging feeling it is going to be in a bundle soon. :-P

Also, I noticed Total War Shogun just posted a DLC that yanks campaigns out of Fall of the Samurai (the "stand alone expansion") and makes them available for the original game. Confusing much? You know some people who already own both are going to buy it even though they don't need it. That's why I don't like this whole stand alone expansion crap. Do an expansion or do a new game.

Dustforce for 5 bucks sounds pretty good, even if it might end up in a bundle. Any thoughts?

I love Dustforce and definitely think it's worth $5. The soundtrack is awesome.

There's a rumor that Dustforce might show up in the next Facekick bundle. Why Facekick, I have no idea.

What's in my trunk?

Because by now these devs are probably just rolling a dice to see which bundle they want to join in on. Unfortunately for them it landed on Facekick.

I want dustforce but part of me says to wait for the next indie bundle and or summer sale. Decisions :-k

I also decided to start trying out my indie games. Pretty much alphabetically unless there is one game that is like tons of MB. If I like a game I will keep on playing it. If not, no harm done.

I say wait for an indie bundle, or at least 75% off.

I also have a hunch the latest Indie Royale bundle might launch tomorrow. I have zero evidence to back that up but the April fool one launched on the 4th, The Spring one launched on the 18th so in keeping with those seems like the 'May Hurray' one would launch this Wednesday (two weeks and last two launches were also Wednesdays). Unless I have my dates wrong...

The other thing is because it's published by WB Games, I don't think it has any chance of being in a indie bundle or a very very small chance.

I am surprised it hasn't hit $3.75 yet, I mean it's been out how long now.

If you're not a mahoosive Cheap Ass and want something to play right now, you can't go far wrong with Bastion. I thought it was excellent. Whether people think it's 60% off excellent is up for debate :lol:

I got it as part of the WB bundle at Xmas but would gladly pay full price for it. One of my favourite games of last year.
