TDU2 is well worth it.  Great open world racer, huge maps.  ...worth it even if online gets axed.


I dream in yellow comic sans.

It rubs the lotion on it's skin or else it gets Bad Rats again.

Agreed. The game is worth it even without online functionality, as it works fine offline. Best simulator-feeling racer on the PC that I've played (with no assists, at least).

Are Alone in the Dark and TDU2 worth buying with the intrusive DRM -- especially now that Atari is bankrupt?

 

Your better options are here and here. Don't fret about GamersGate, though. I just bought another 30 games to make it up to them.

If Atari goes away, so we can play the SP, we'll still need Securom removed b/c the game requires online activation on 1st boot-up per PC...

DIshonored is $15ish on the UK site and even cheaper if you have the discount.  I'm all maxed out of Dishonored so I can't help anyone out, but I am sure others can.

I'm waiting for ALL DLC to be released (including upcoming Brigmore Witches DLC) and ALL go on sale.

Um, anybody want a GG gift of the Total Annihilation Commander Pack for ~$1? I picked this up on sale without realizing I already had it on GOG.

It's worth noting that it's not all steam with this collection.

 

Legend & Anniversary both list SecuROM as the DRM. Underworld doesn't list anything, but I suspect that's also SecuROM. The rest look like steam.

The TR DLC is on sale, which is worth mentioning since it's the first time I can recall the DLC itself being on sale.   Got the single-player DLC for under $1 in blue-coins.

Who knows if this goes down 75% in the next few days... still it's a good price IMO.

Tempting... However 75% off will put Steam's TR collection at $17.50 (And this is Squeenix, so if not in summer then by winter or sooner.)

Nice deal, for those who can't wait...

I can wait, though...

 

Also worth noting - LCATGOL is not in that pack.

Might be worth waiting for THAT deal - or maybe better. ;)

I was too disappointed to post that.  I'm interested in it, just not $20 interested in it... ($16 for me, but I'm cranky and patient, I've got a rich selection of racers atm, and other high quality backlog.)

Dark Souls: Prepare to Die Edition is $11.99 but can be had for $7.36 via UK site with 20% Beth/BL2 discount. Officially slightly cheaper than Amazon's price for those still wanting it.

 

http://www.gamersgat...-to-die-edition

 

Note: Not sure if this is new but you can't buy blue coins in $1 denominations anymore, the minimum is $5.

          Also MSRP is still $39.95 on GG and most other places are $29.99.

Well, that's lame.  Obviously they did it so you'll have more money tied up in BC and more loose change that makes you say "Well, I may as well use this" but being able to top off your account was nice.  First cutting off coupons for BCs and now this -- jeers to GamersGate!

So this requires Steam and GFWL, the GFWL isn't region restricted, right?

Thanks for the heads-up on that.  Wow, that's lame.  I understand why they did it, but it means that we have to plan our blue coin purchases more carefully now if we want to use them all without putting in extra money.

Dark Souls is actually cheaper now if you're using US dollars.  They made it 66% off a lower base.

 

$10.19 (US site), a few pennies more expensive on the UK site.

 

$9.68 with elder-geek.com code or $8.16 if you're a 20%er.

If you wanna play Dark Souls, holding out for $5 is pointless. The game is awesome. $2 and change extra is more than worth it.

Agree. I paid $7.5 (amazon) after a lot of waiting, and regret not buying it before. It's worth every penny. Just buy it

Some customers who were part of a big pricing fiasco during the winter sale received a one-year 20% discount on their GG purchases.  Enough CAG people were affected that it's somewhat standard to just list both prices and save people the math.
