Honest question, what did Amazon offer that made Xcom seem like a better deal than GMG?


I had a gift card.

If I'd been paying cash, absolutely GMG was the better deal.

Is it a good idea to install the Skyrim Official HD texture pack or just go with mods?

You can use both in some cases. Some mods can be pretty crippling so I'd start with the official pack, and work your way up. The official ones are easy enough to disable if you can run the game with the better fan textures.

If you decide to use the official one, you should probably get this fix. It fixes the stump and firewood textures.

And I try and fail many times to ignore stuff in threads that turns it directly toward me. I don't like the idea of entire pages of the Steam deals thread built around the novelty of my tastes in games so I am gonna try to resist now.


Amazon offered $15 in promo credit I believe. I bought from Steam so I could get Civ 5.

Amazon only had the 5$ price break, but later added Civ 5 to the deal as most pre-order retailers did, as well.

GMG if you ordered at the right time you could have come away paying 37$, getting Civ 5, and getting a 10$ promo credit.

I opted for Amazon as I had credit there, however.

I hated Borderlands before it was cool to hate Borderlands. I'm so ahead of the curve I realize now that to be a proper counter-culture hipster I have to LIKE Call of Duty.

There's nothing wrong w/ liking Call of Duty!
I like COD series - though, I think it definitely did hit its peak back at COD4: MW.

BTW - I like both COD and Borderlands.

Tempted to rush over and grab one, but I have a very poor track record of playing betas before the product releases. Sitting on my hands...

Same here. I'm always interested in the game, but I get my key and never get around to actually trying it out.

I remember playing the hell out of COD4 when it came out. There was just nothing else as tight and slick like that.

Haven't played another one since, though.

Not a fan of the multiplayer (or most competitive multiplayer, in general, to be fair) and could never justify the high price for such short single player campaigns.

Hour and a half long Civ V flash giveaway on Steamgifts starting soon. Just a heads up in case anyone's interested. Bought XCOM but already have Civ V, so the key's pretty useless to me.

Yeah I didn't touch the WotR beta either despite having ample time and interest. I think it's more exciting to get into one than it is to play the game...even though betas are thousands upon thousands of people now.

My buddy said he got a $15 promo credit, but he got the 360 version. Maybe that's what it was.

If anyone wants the Borderlands 2 premier club then you can still get steam codes on ebay for 10 dollars. I got mine from a guy in the UK and it worked just fine.

Same price as just the extra character.

Damn, I'm sure there is a joke to be made here but I'll leave it to the pros.

But yea, COD4's multiplayer was amazing. Everything after that was downhill but I had alot of fun in college playing COD4. I would probably buy it again if it hit $10.

I've been waiting for COD4 to go on sale to $10 or lower for a long time. It hasn't hit my buying point in several sales and I'm beginning to wonder if it ever will.

I don't hate Borderlands but I wasn't excited for a sequel. I bought it on one of its many, Magicka-like sales on Steam and I guess it was worth the $10 I paid? I spent many hours playing it and it's good for when you're in one of those moods where you just feel like shooting things, but it's all rather mindless and the way the story ends makes you feel like Gearbox was having a joke at your expense. I have most of the DLCs for the first game and I gave up trying to get through Zombie Island because it was just aggravating. Given how much I enjoyed the first one, the sequel isn't really on my "play-as-soon-as-you-possibly-can" list.

If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

Seems kinda strange to me... I assume they'll be making this "live" on their humble bundle site soon.
