I suppose I should bite on this damned thing. I was holding out thinking the summer sale might be this week to see what price that Avernum triology was going to go for, but doesn't seem that likely now.

I guess I'll wait and see tomorrow just on the off even the summer sale starts then but I really don't think it's going to happen.

Curious about this 84 metacritic score game. I guess they needed something balance out Postal 2's score of 50. :-P

*Edited to add: Ditto on better not be Gemini Rue! I actually like that game but come on two separate bundles is enough now. That dev better be careful not to oversaturate on the bundles. I know I am holding out on Resonance because of that.

Hm.. if it's going to be an adventure game, Syberia might be semi-likely. It has an 82 on metacritic and it's going to be on sale (for probably 40% off) on GOG

Postal 2 also went on sale on GOG shortly before it got added to Be Mine 3 lol, but it could just be a coincidence.

As I said in my last post, I think that it is pretty likely that it'll be an adventure game, but it's not a 100% lock. They are limited by which dev/publisher says yes to having their game included in the bundle. If they can't find an adventure game on this short of a notice (assuming that the vote was for real and they didn't already have something lined up) they might have to go with whatever they can get.

Someone should make a list of all the adventure games on metacritic that score an 82 so that we can narrow down the likelyhood of what it'll be ;)

Zero chance it's Legend of Grimrock. I'm sure those guys already have an agreement with Humble seeing as how they make use of the Humble Store services.

Thanks for the heads up. Now I know to not buy Grimrock unless the price is $5 or under in the Summer Sale :D.

Hoping it's Crusader Kings II because it's the one besides Grimrock I don't already own.

As for the "special bonus" for those buying before Friday, my guess is it will be the DLC for Hamilton's Great Adventure.

There's not many


Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon
Gemini Rue
Lara Croft and the Guardian of Light
Sam & Max Episode 105: Reality 2.0
Sam & Max Episode 201: Ice Station Santa
Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People Episode 5: 8-Bit Is Enough
Syberia
Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 3: Lair of the Leviathan
The Last Express


I think you can safely remove Lara Croft. Ditto for episodic stuff from Telltale.

Basically all that's left is Gemini Rue, Broken Sword, Syberia and Last Express, the latter of which is really old and I have no idea who owns the rights to it now.

That'd suck, I suppose it's better than nothing though. The DLC is only $1 on Steam. I narrowed down the search on metacritic to these three games:

Gemini Rue
Broken Sword: The Sleeping Dragon
Syberia

They were the only ones I could find that are on Steam and have a rating of 82, there may be others it missed.

They're trying to drive up interest in this bundle over on reddit. So they're doing a "contest" in this thread where they're looking to get voted up into the top ten threads in the gaming section of reddit. If they do, the bundle's minimum price will drop for 2 hours on Saturday to $1.

As somebody who has held off of buying the bundle up until now, this is great news. Vote it up for me people so I can be a cheap bastard and get this bundle for a buck.

Watch the site crash in those 2 hours lol. I kinda regret buying the bundle so early, hopefully the "bonus" they add will be worth the $3 difference.

I just bought this and none of the keys are working in steam.

One, Cristian Blunda an Admin at groupees.com said the following:

"OK. This is a weird steam issue. apparently they lock you out under some circumstances. All of your keys will work. Unfortunately, you have to wait until Steam lets you in.

i'd log out / quit app and try again in a few hours

It only recently has come to our attention. You can contact Steam support if you like, but all of the keys we gave you will work, you have my word.

Other users have gotten locked out of Steam and all keys are said to be invalid until they wait it out"

Anyone else having this crap happen? I know that I only paid a few dollars a piece for each game, but I expect the damn keys to work.

It'll be interesting to see if this (or any!) online roll playing game can dethrone Ultima Online. I also hear that Blizzard's working on something but I can't see that doing any better for them then Diablo has.

That only happens if you attempt to activate used/invalid keys multiple times. Did you do that? If so, that's why none of the Groupees keys are working for you. But to answer your question, yes many of us have had that happen, it's a new Steam "feature".

As strange as it may sound, this isn't the first that I've heard of this happening. I know it's frustrating, but I'd wait a few hours and try again.

Edit: it's probably obvious, but my post was directed to pseudonem

I made a reddit account just to do this even though I don't have much interest in getting this bundle myself. The only thing I like is that first mp3 song they demo in their Be Mine collection 3. If the bundle drops to a buck I may just throw a dollar their way just for that.

Okay total noob ? here but how does one vote something up on reddit? I keep an account in case there are giveaways but to be honest I just can't stand the 1990s paleolithic era of the internet style interface enough to use that site to any significant degree.

Don't forget the super secret bonus for buying before 11:59 pm on Friday, though! Get it for a buck, or get a bonus? Which will you choose?

Yeah, I don't think this is going to help with sales. They should choose to encourage people to buy early, or later.. not BOTH. Strange tactic they're using.

I actually just activated the Serious Sam 3 Discount code right before entering the Avernum code.

lol, with the exception of the fact that you don't know how to up-vote something, you've almost completely summed up my thoughts on reddit. The only thing that i would add is that a large percentage of the people posting there seem to be complete douchbags.

Oh and thanks to solidus_00 for the vote up

To BigSpoonyBard: That's a tuff choice. Get a wildflower screensaver, or get the bundle for a buck.

Yeah, I just checked again and they've started to go backwards. People are apparently voting down to cancel out those people who voted up. It was a long shot to begin with, but if one third of the people are down-voting the thread....

Sweet, Postal 2 complete! I wonder why they didn't e-mail me to say that the goal had been reached / the game had been unlocked. Thanks CAG users for bumping.

Also if you're in the CAG Steam group, I posted my extra Sword of the Stars from Amazon to Steamgifts as a private group giveaway to the CAG group. It's obviously not a sure thing like the above free keys to the first person who gets them, but you're competing against a much smaller pool.

There's a CAG Steam group? How have I managed to be a CAG member for 8 years, and a steam customer for 2 1/2 years (including being a semi-semi-regular on the steam thread for the past year) and I'm just now learning this?

Yeah it's been around for a while. I can't quite remember when but I asked someone for an invite to it ages ago and someone sent me one. I can send you one if you want to PM me your Steam ID or friend me on there. You can get to my profile by clicking on my sig.

Besides the occasional CAG group steamgifts giveaway, I noticed someone has started doing notifications on various sales which is useful to know if you have been gaming and haven't checked the threads in a while.

I'd like an invite to the group too. It would be way cool to actually game and still keep on the various sales through the steam client. Never mind just got invited, willing to invite others if they want.

got invited to the group 1 second after I posted this. lol
