Absolutely loving this game Black Market. It was in the last Championship bundle.

Unfortunately it's not on sale right now, but maybe it will before the winter sale is over. Basically the game consists of flying to different planets and space stations (just clicking on a map with lines between locations), picking up goods to buy low and sell high, and avoiding/killing pirates on the way. The battle system is limited, but pretty cool. If you get in a fight, the game turns into a side view battle (like a shmup) where you can move left and right and fire your weapons at the enemies above you.

The battles are a bit difficult at first, but once you salvage a good weapon, you can become pretty unstoppable. Thankfully, moving to the next system usually provides an immediate jump in difficulty, so it's not too easy all the time. Really though, what sets the game apart is its writing. You play as a trader named Vincent who has woken up with no memory and an eyepatch that is actually a cybernetic implant with a living AI inside it. I've actually laughed out loud more than once at this game. The writing (especially the dialogue) is good.

Definitely worth it for $2.50, or even $5. I wasn't expecting much and this game pleasantly surprised me.


You know I passed on this not being sure what it was. Now it sounds like a better version of one of my favorite games all time :(

Hopefully this pops up in another bundle soon.

Judging from this:

Hm, well someone try this.

Looks like you can download the game for free. xD

DLing now! Thanks. Looking forward to it. Between KF Christmas Cheevos, TSW, and now this I am inundated with good games.

Edit:
Just DLed, installed, and started playing a little. This game does feel a lot like a new version of Gazillionaire, only better, thanks again.

OK. I downloaded it. It's version 1.0, and it continually crashes on me. The game on Gamersgate is noted as version 1.04, and has a different filesize. I'm downloading it know and I'll let you know if it crashes on me like the one from the web page.

I seem to recall that, when I grabbed the bundle, there was a link on the page to buy the HD version. I don't see one any more.

Ah. Also, the one from the web page has a link on the bottom of the screen where you can click to buy the full version.

Hm, not sure. The version I have from GG looks really clean and good. There's really no graphics options in the game, but I wouldn't even both changing the resolution if I could. It's a pretty game, for what it is.

At least the browser based version is free.

Googled a bit, found this. http://www.violentga...mpressions.html

Sounds like the free version is limited, they just don't specify that very well on their webpage.

Oblivion GOTY came out to around $4.50 with IAMANELDERGEEK + BlueCoins cashback.

The Deluxe additions are pretty pointless from what I know, so GOTY is fine for me.

Obviously, this is Steam redeemable.

I'm just pointing out that there is a Deluxe and that it comes with more DLC. (And I finally picked it up on the steam summer sale for $12.) Yes steam. Sorry, I was in a rush to get the word out since I suspect it's a price glitch.

It has been $5 on Steam before (late July) alongside the deluxe edition for $6.24, so I don't think that it's a glitch.

With my luck it'll be $3.74 on Friday on Steam.

Also of note, Gray Matter for $2.38 after IAMANELDERGEEK code.

I picked it up, since I was waiting for a good deal on it. Kind of a niche game, but a good price on it.

$4 maybe (-80%), but I doubt it.

too bad you can only add two copies of a game, would have been nice to create an oblivion pack to split

It says to contact support if you want to buy more. May as well do so if you're interested in getting 4.

Holiday Sale officially started today (and yeah, not sure what these other sales were for? lol) anyway - 8 dailies from here until year's end and over 500 games on sale.

4 for 3 promotion is still going and the last indiefort should be launching today at some point. Some good deals to be had with 4 for 3 IMO.

Yeah, they are still updating the price.

Like Bethesda Collection is now $95.87 which is close to 75% off every game MSRP (and it includes Skyrim and Dishonored).

If you double stack the Iamaneldergeek code and take into account the 5% blue coin cashback it comes out better than the Steam deal.

It doesn't have the Quake games, but it does replace them with Hunted and Rogue Warrior AND you can gift anything you already have in Gamersgate.

I'm guessing this may be a price mistake ($1.73 for Defender's Quest):

That's a nice deal. It was on sale for $5 on Steam a few days ago.

those collections are eligible for the buy 4, pay for 3 deal with the IAMANELDERGEEK coupon
so you could go 2x bethesda, and 2x square-enix collection for example

I don't know. I'm peeved about the BS involving the Indiefort. I've grabbed the first four, I'm just thinking maybe I should skip this last one and keep my zero dollars.

Or not. Actually, because of Zafehouse Diaries I've been looking forward to this one, and likely still would have bought even without the 100% discount.

The user review on the Defender's Quest page is pretty awesome. Fallen Enchantress for $8 is a pretty sweet deal too since it is a Steamworks title and all.

Get a $2 credit for spending $2 and signing up with Green Man Gaming using my link

That's a good price for it indeed. I picked this up earlier this year after playing the demo. As a true CAG, I have yet to install it and actually attempt to beat it. In my defense, I was playing Gabriel Knight 1 which I got from GOG at the same time. I can only handle one mystery at a time!

Holy Crap,

Bethesda New Year Collection for $28.76.

That is a crap ton of gaming for the price:

Includes:
Skyrim
Oblivion GOTY
Morrowind GOTY
Doom 3 BFG
Dishonored
Fallout 3 GOTY
Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition
Rage
and 3 lesser games.

This might deserve its own post.

Well god damn. That is some deal. Even includes Dishonored which is worth the entry price alone.

Damn! I paid almost that much for the Fallout and old Elder Scrolls games. :cry:

I'd be all over that if I had someone to trade/sell FO3/FONV/Oblivion/Morrowind to.
