Is there a big Steam sale before the year is over?


Steam has 2 big sales before the end of the year right now. First is the Black Friday one that they call the Autumn Sale. It is only for 5-7 days but is good and then we have the big daddy of them all, the Holiday Sale which last 10-14 days. Starts around Dec 20th and ends a few days into the new year.

Teasers for the Groupees Halloween bundle:

The Bundle of the Damned

5 Games

  • Game 1 teaser: Retro, Rpg (Desura + Steam’s Greenlight)
  • Game 2 teaser: It’s Cold (Steam)
  • Game 3 teaser: Painted Dreams (Steam)
  • Game 4 teaser: Can’t See (Desura)
  • Game 5 teaser: After Dead (Steam)
There will be a Horror movie in this bundle.

http://www.bemineslu...le-coming-soon/

So far, to me, Cryostasis (It's Cold) and BlindSide (Can't See) are sure bets. The retro RPG might be Breath of Death/Cthulhu. My guess for "Painted Dreams" would be Anna, because its developed by Dreampainters, however it's a somewhat new release on Steam so I don't know how likely that is.

EDIT: Breath of Death/Cthulhu confirmed NOT to be in the bundle by ShiftySlug.

EDIT #2: Added platforms (Steam/Desura)

EDIT #3: My updated guesses
1: Manor of the Damned (EXTREMELY likely)
2: Cryostasis (VERY likely)
3: Either Anna (developer is Dreampainters), or Drawn: The Painted Tower
4. BlindSide (EXTREMELY likely)
5: No idea

I think Anna is possible. It has some pretty bad reviews and it seems its not selling much :/

Bioshock 2's DLC is only available through the GFWL store, right? Are there ever sales?


I'm only discussing Single Player DLC, since the multiplayer is dead anyhow.

There's actually only one up that can be purchased. Minerva's Den is $5, and The Protector Trials is Free and can be downloaded at once. Both are for Bioshock 2. There was a PS3 exclusive Challenge Room DLC for Bioshock 1, you'll find that only on PSN. Be sure to backup the temp folders that GFWL is using, since it supposedly deletes them after it installs (it didn't for me, however I hadn't installed the base game yet). So if you wanted all the Bioshock DLC you could get for PC right now, it's only $5, and from the reviews of Minerva's Den, it's worth every penny. So in summary:

Bioshock 1 DLC: None on PC

Bioshock 2 DLC: The Protector Trials $0.00
.............................. Minerva's Den $5.00 (Games for Windows Live MarketPlace)

Yeah, that fits the teaser perfectly. The only one I'm unsure of is #3. I'm leaning toward Anna but the teaser would only fit the developer, not the game. The rest are probably very accurate.

Seems like a pretty solid guess.

Meridian4 games have been in Groupees bundles in the past.

I built my gaming PC last month, so I just started on my Steam library. I've purchased the majority of my games via GMG and Amazon DD thus far. I'm still not that familiar with whatever sales Steam has throughout the year aside from the Summer and this supposed Halloween sale.


My first time for all these sales as well.

My first time for all these sales as well.

To give you an idea, here's a brief analogy.

I did my first ever spinning class last night. So you're pedalling away thinking "Ha! Is this it?" and it all seems rather tame.

5 minutes later, you're aching a bit and starting to regret getting all ballsy and cranking up the resistance too high, too soon.

Then the instructor bellows at you to sprint for 30 seconds.

Your legs fail. You curse your god. But you can't quit, you don't want the shame of other people seeing that you slacked off. So you keep on pedalling, every rotation burning you a horrible, searing pain.

An indeterminate length of time passes.

Somehow you make it to the end. You're sweaty, exhausted, bewildered, and scared. And your bottom hurts.

Good luck newbies! :D

So is there going to be a Halloween sale this year? It was the 27th through the 31st last year so if there was one, it'd likely be this weekend.

How are the Darksiders games? They're brought up alot on here but I haven't had the chance to play them. Watched some reviews and it looks pretty good.

Does Groupees do a group buy/happy hour type deal or is the cheapest way to get in on the bundle to buy as soon as it goes on sale?

They've done preorders before (where games were cheaper), and periods where you could get 1 game minimum for their Build a Bundles, but in general it doesn't really matter when or how you buy them.

For one of the Be Mine bundles, they gave out free gift bundles for anyone who purchased before a certain date, but that was a one time thing.

If there is one, I hope Silent Hill: Homecoming is offered for a reasonable price this time around. It's bad enough Steam is one of the only places one can obtain the PC version.

I know it's not a great Silent Hill, but at least it features another score by Akira Yamaoka.

How is AvP?

Obviously nobody is playing MP anymore, but I'm more interested in the campaign. Any good for $3.75?


I think it is. I've only played part of the Marine sp but if you were a fan of the Alien movies (especially) I think you'll like the game. Lots of tension in the Marine campaign and sound effects are right out of the movies. Story is eh but still feels very movie like.

Saying $5 is a great price doesn't sound right when we're talking about the base game being $3.75.

Weird. Bully ran without problems for me on PC back in the day (retail, $5) on my WinXP, X2-3800, 7900GT rig.

I wonder if popular verdict places the PC Port of Dark Souls worse than the PC Port of Saints Row 2.


I had much less problem w/ SR2 PC than Bully PC on my older Win XP PC.
At least, SR2 PC would actually run...
