Did they ever make a legitimate response to all the price mistakes? I'm pretty sure they said they would this week.

No. Just another vague "update".

Nope. Just more vague bullshit.

Well they sent an email out Thursday saying it was ending but I guess they saw that Valve was extending their sale with a 'best of' weekend and it's not like GG works on weekends anyway so they probably figured they'd let it run until Monday now I'm guessing.

Or, not everything is a conspiracy and Gamersgate has always ended their sales/started new ones on Sunday/early Monday or something.

The email even mentions something like "all this week."

Stop making sense and let me put on my tinfoil hat! :lol:

Fair enough. The headline on that mail they sent Thursday said "End of the Year Sale Ends!" so I had been thinking, oh, within 24 hours and they were doing last call but re-reading the fine print it does mention checkout the offers section for deals all this week as you said.

Yeah probably, I guess it's only fair that GG get the chance to extend their glitches.

Not a great deal on the collection either unless you really want them all. Vegas has been like $1.24 elsewhere, and I'd expect they're all old enough to be worth about that price. Coupled with the Tages... no thanks.

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

Video game speculation is 90% wishful thinking, so yes I think he is.

Is this still active? It's showing as 100% off (no price/purchase option) for me.

It's been $5 a couple times already, just need a .us based retailer to have it that price by the end of the month. If not, I'm sure EA will Fuck up some promo soon enough and it'll be free on Origin. I'm fine with waiting. =)

EA games are frequently region-locked. It's not available in your region, sorry!

HoMM6 is taunting me with that $12 pricetag. But uplay!

Oh... D=


Uplay isn't that annoying, I've found, and the developers added in some changes so you can use your save games offline or on. (Although the online weapons and stuff are still online only).

The game is easily worth twelve bucks, and the 'online' doesn't make the game lag or anything. I've probably put sixty hours into it, which is more than I've put into any of them since three.

Wait until the next Origin summer sale, everything will be free.

I'd post that Cherry Tree High Comedy Club is $2.72 (DRM-FREE), but that'll probably just provoke more threadcrapping.

Personally I was disappointed with the steam demo. 640x480 resolution, and nowhere near the charm of Persona 3 & 4.

I just saw that Ship Simulator Extremes Collection is $3.75. Been kinda wanting the game for a while now. Any idea if its Steam redeemable? I know some Paradox games are, but say they aren't, etc...

It doesn't, but it's the best deal out there. I bought it retail (activates on steam) and the ferry dlc from Amazon, but i went ahead and bought it here again because $3.75 is cheaper than you'll ever get the game and all the DLC on Steam.

They just pulled it while I was debating getting it.

The realist part of me knows I was just interested because it was dirt cheap. The deal-hunter in me is plenty annoyed.

It's been up for like 8 hours or so at least at that price. I noticed it was that price before I went to bed and figured it was a mistake but I didn't mention it because it wasn't Steam and it's kind of a nichey game. *shrug*

I'm trying to get the deal-hunter instinct under control 'cause I have way way way too many games. A couple of days ago I bought Supreme Ruler 2020 from GG because it was only $1.25 even though I know I'll never play it. I managed to get the Bethesda pack from GG *and* redeem all the codes and still haven't downloaded anything. Hell, I have games sitting unplayed in my Steam, GG, etc. accounts from over three years ago...
