There is, of course, a downside to buying all your games as inventory items to be opened when you're ready for them. Sometimes steam doesn't feel like letting you open them.

Look, sure there are probably a hundred titles in my library I've never opened, but nothing is going to do a better job of making me want to play one in my inventory than a message like that.

Plus the pack comes with the base anyway and their DLC almost never goes this cheap.

Still, if you're really afraid to splurge @ $7 for the trains, there are some free DLC as you pointed out.


I totally missed that when I was first deciding what to pick up :cry: Assumed the Hauling USA was just the DLC. Oh well there is still a ton of tracks and trains in the base game and free dlc(So everyone should pick up the choo's). Maybe even too much..Though the Donner pass does have flying trains soo :wall:

If the pre-order costs $19.99 and comes with a free Torchlight I copy, buying Torchlight I now at $3.74 wouldn't actually be bad if Torchlight II is at least on a 33% sale, the game would cost $13.40, so added it would be less than $19.99.

So any sale that, added with today's sale, would be less than what the pre-order costs.

Makes any sense?

Are there high chances of Torchlight II being on sale for Winter?

I got interest in both games, but since Torchlight II doesn't really have a specific Mac release date, don't know how long I'd have to wait. And then there's the part that I'm a CAG...


You can get in on a torchlight 2 4 pack for 14.99 and you get torchlight 1. Check out the steam trade thread.

Also I would bet torchlight 2 is 50% off by winter sale

Yeah, I ran into that just a few minutes ago. If you right click on the page, and select "Reload", then try again, I think that got it to work for me.

Well, I suppose it comes down to how CAGgy you're feeling. My take on it at this point is that if you enjoyed the first game and want to play it, do a pre-order and it's basically like paying $10 for each. More revenue now may actually encourage the dev to get the Mac port out faster (although I could also just be talking out of my ass).

The other factor to consider is that if you already have a huge backlog and you haven't played or finished Torchlight yet, you're probably better off waiting on a good T2 sale--unless you love Torchlight so much you are compelled to be an early adopter.

My personal feeling about Torchlight is that it was better than Diablo but ultimately lacked a sufficiently-interesting story to sustain all of that mindless clicking.

Really disappointed Torchlight won. It's not that Torchlight is a bad game, it's just with all the improvements of Torchlight 2, there really isn't a point to play T1 nowadays.

I want to buy the GTA Complete Pack just for 1 & 2, but I don't feel like paying $6 each for just them. I own the rest for either PS2 or PC. Really wish publishers other than Valve would offer additional copies to people who purchase additional licenses to a game.

Three dollars and seventy-four cents is a reason.

I see. I guess that if I could wait three years to buy Torchlight I, I could probably wait for a 50% or more sale on Torchlight II.

Thanks, fellas!

They are? I'll need to looking into that :)

Also, does anyone know why Steam removed all the non-steam games from my library? I believe it happened after an update.

This was posted on the GMG thread but figured some people in this thread may not have noticed it.

Beyond Divinity is free today on Greenmangaming.

It's the second game in the Divinity series, though not a direct sequel more of a sidequel, and as of now it's the only Divinity game not on Steam. Not sure if they will ever add it. It's probably the least known of the 3 games.

Anyway, free is free and there may be a trade in value for it at some point. You're also supposed to get a voucher for 20% off anything else for grabbing it, but their site has had issues and I didn't get mine today or yesterday.

1C @ GamersGate for 20$. WHY! did I not buy that. STUPID! STUPID! Will it ever do that again......probably not. Probably a total fluke never to be repeated. If it ever does come back, I'm on it. Of course, they aren't steam keys, so I can at least say that about it. ALAS.



You know, the promo ran for an entire week too. We all expected it to be pulled or corrected but it was not. It was even cheaper if you have the IGN discount then. And a handful of the games were steamable. Greatest value per game for me. A lot of them aren't the best I've heard, but I already got my money's worth out of Rig n Roll.

Hell yes! I've wanted to play some of the other Divinity games after Divinity 2: DKS (which I highly recommend).

Are the games that lose the community vote showing up as the flash deals?

Looks that way to me.

I started out the week scoffing that I already owned everything I wanted... I'm up to about $48.00. For me, that's actually pretty good.

I think I'm under you, which is a miracle. Then again, spending $300 the last summer sale means I already own half the sale items.

90% of my yearly video game purchases occur 3 times per year. Summer Sale, Winter Sale, Black Friday.

I have a job interview in about 2 and a half hours. If Driver wins I will wait to leave for the interview till that refreshes so I can buy it. If not I will head to the interview. Either way wont miss any flash deals but I would like to know if I should grab another Steam card while I am out.

Depends on how much you've spent so far. We've got 4-5 more days of daily deals so if you need a bit more to cover that I would grab one just in case. Worst case scenario is it sits in your account until winter.

Good luck on your interview.
