I'm awfully tempted to pick up the Fallout GotY editions, but I have a feeling they'll be cheaper during the winter sale. Hard to hold off, though.

Anyway, I picked up:

Dark Fall: Lost Souls
S.T.A.L.K.E.R. CoP + SoC
Scratches
Limbo
Lone Survivor

Probably in for Hell Yeah! and Tales from Space, considering Condemned. Nice to see a sale on OMD2, but dammit, I'm just not ready for that game yet.

I'm wondering if they will have a fall sale next week for games that aren't Halloween related; there's nothing I'm interested in here.

They do give a loyalty discount, but it doesn't stack with the sales prices. The same goes for Zombie Driver HD. Those who previously own the non-HD version already had the opportunity to buy it at 50%, but there's not a bigger discount during the sale for loyalty customers.


I have Dead Island and the GOTY edition shows as $9.99 in my cart.

That's disappointing. I'd have considered it for $5 but $10 it too much for a zombie game when I don't like zombies.

Disappointed at Painkiller: Black being full price but the collection with the paid mods being discounted. http://store.steampo...d.com/app/3200/


I've had Alice: Madness Returns on my list for awhile to pick up but I've wanted to play the first game before grabbing it. However it looks like it'll never come back to digital distribution and the preorder sale on origin was just a tease. Can anyone who has played both say whether it's necessary to play the first?

I always thought Alice Madness Returns included the original game! Looks like that was only on 360 and PS3. How rude!

I'm sure you don't need to play the first. It's a video game, not a movie or a book. Sequels are always designed to be independent. =)

I played an OnLive demo of MR some time ago; from what I can tell, the story is connected but not in any critical way to the events of the first game. The sequel starts with Alice in an asylum after apparently having burned down her parents' house.

American Magee's Alice was included with the disc copy of some versions of the console game, as I don't believe it had ever been released on consoles any other way. It was never bundled with the PC version.

And no deal on Resident Evil 5. Man, I knew I should have grabbed that at $10 last month.

Nuclear Dawn will get a price drop and be the daily or midweek at 75% off on Nov 9th. It's also getting Team Deathmatch and maybe more.

What's with all of the early deal announcements lately?

They a high res version of the first game if you pre-ordered Madness Returns through Origin. You can unlock all the DLC messing with the config file and it shows an option where you could play the original game (of course nothing happens if you click on it).

Felt obligated to grab something so I grabbed the Overlord complete pack for $4.99 cause I never played any of the games in thed series (didnt even realize there was 3 of them). Also considering Alice: MR, but may wait on that one to see if it goes even lower

Looks like FEAR 2 and Scratches for me.

Tempted by the Sherlock Holmes games that are 75% off, but I'd rather wait for the full bundle to go on sale again.

Vampire the Masquerades Bloodlines for me. Been waiting a long time for this one.

Wondering why I did such a long quote, didn't quote at all, or my post is riddled with typos? 90% of the time I'm on a mobile device and editing and formatting are too time consuming.

Tossed Dracula Origin into my cart on a whim, tempted by Scratches as well. Can anyone recommend them to me?

I'm awfully tempted, but I heard really bad stories about the game having major issues running on Windows 7. Can anyone share their Win7 experiences with this game, good or bad?

Runs fine for me. Can't remember if I had to run any fixes but I think I did run a community patch with a bunch of fixes and extra content.



Tempted by OMD2 but there is no two pack on the complete pack which really sours the deal.

I've said it before, but I highly recommend F.E.A.R. for $2.50. It's a great shooter (with a small horror twist), and you get a lot of content for that price.

$10 for the complete pack is still well worth it IMO. I paid around $10 when the game was released and didn't regret it.

My guess is it will be 75% off by the Holidays. Normally it's not a big deal but usually I have to buy a copy for a friend if I want to play it coop or else we never play or have to wait for an indie bundle.

You'll be waiting a loooooooooooooooooong time for it to be in an indie bundle, but I agree you should probably wait for a 2-pack that includes the DLC, or just wait until its 75% off if you're buying it for a friend. Unlike the first game, the sequel really should be played in co-op, makes the game a lot more fun.

Syntax Error

I'm playing through Alice: MR now and never played the first one. It's not as though there's a hard-to-follow story; you're traveling through a jacked-up version of Wonderland and piecing back memories of what happened the night your family died in a fire.

I have about 12-13 hours in the game and am maybe 50% done. This is because I spend more time exploding into a cloud of blue butterflies than I spend actually playing. Not voluntarily, mind you. I just suck :D

You never know on timeline. It was around this time last year we both got the original free from ign prime trials.

Any thoughts on The Club for $3 as the daily deal?




This games weasel review gave me a pretty good overview of the game mechanics.

Well, as long as you're only doing it in-game. . . .


On a side note, does anybody know whether the Steam version of The Club has GWfL?
