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


Agreed : /

There is not much else here on sale that I want to get but you know as an avid Steam Collector, I will find something haha

I think I'll pick up Dead Space 2, Overlord 2 and Limbo for 75% off each. This is the first time a Steam sale has caught my interest since the summer.

Looks like it's about time to pick up Nation Red.

I had The Club on 360 years back. It was decently fun for a generic shooter with multiplayer. The mechanics worked well and everything just nothing really made it stand out.

I am tempted by They Bleed Pixels but I know by the time I would get around to playing it, it will have been in an Indie Bundle of some sort. Also both Prototype and Prototype 2 are too expensive for how much I want them.

The only thing I am tempted by is the Overlord Complete Pack. Seeing as I cannot afford Amazon's Dark Souls, perhaps this will fill that empty space in my gaming heart! haha

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?


Just use the unoffical patch and you'll be fine.
"Just a heads up: we're gonna have a superconductor turned up full blast and pointed at you for the duration of this next test. I'll be honest - we're throwing science at the wall here to see what sticks. No idea what it'll do. Probably nothing. Best-case scenario, you might get some superpowers. Worst case, some tumors, which we'll cut out. " - C. Johnson

I doubt most of you care, but there's a price mistake on GamersGate on the new DLC for Magicka that got released today (Grimnir's Laboratory). It's 75% off, worth picking up with blue coins, if you've got any.

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.


I picked it up for $5 last Summer Sale. Be patient!

I'm half tempted to pick up a Dead Island 4 pack from GG. Comes out to ~$4.75/ea


Count me in if you plan that as well.

I'm half tempted to pick up the Nancy Drew games on sale, as well as the Midnight Mysteries Collection. The only thing I'm worried about is that the bundle will be cheap in December, and I'll end up buying the games over again.

How much was the Nancy Drew bundle during the summer/winter sale?

Worth 250BC for the Doctor Who parody, although it'll probably be a while before I reload Magicka.

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

Just grabbed it for 210 coins (21 cents with IGN discount) but the site is being super slow right now. Someone must have told Slick Deals.

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


Does anyone know if this uses GFWL. The only reason I would buy it is to grab the achievements on my live account. According to this it does:

The Nancy Drew bundle during steam's summer sale wasn't a great deal. It worked out to $3 something a game. Amazon (Tony) ran a Nancy Drew bundle maybe 6 weeks ago, 15 games for $12 iirc. They didn't activate on steam, but it was a really good price. You might ask in that thread for a re-run sometime soon.

It was probably wishful thinking, but I was hoping that Zombie Driver HD would get the 50% off for the sale and then an additional 50% off for owning the original game. Guess not :\

Thinking about picking up DR2 and Dead Island, any advice on how well they play on PC? I don't have a controller, just standard M&K.

I find it funny how the only game I want out of that is Cryostatis, and that I'm not even willing to drop a dollar down to get it . . .

It was $40.

I personally got the $12 pack from Amazon a couple of months ago, which included 15 ND games which includes these ones on sale. I'm hoping Amazon would do another sale with the other games soon.

And yes, these are pretty good adventure games. Don't let the Nancy Drew title throw you off.

Has Dead Space ever been cheaper than $5? I won't play it anytime soon, but $5 is typically my buying point for backlog stuff.

It drops to $5 very often, but other than some insane future pack that may show up on Amazon (which wouldn't activate on Steam), this is the cheapest DS1 goes.

$5 is about as cheap as any stand alone AAA title gets in price. A bundle may be cheaper. Dead Space has been free before but it has always been ymmv.

Extremely doubtful you'll ever find a steam copy of Dead Space for under $5.

Non-Steam you can sometimes find it for $4, depending on coupons and things from competing sites.

THIS.

Everybody wanting Bloodlines should check this thread in particular for dealing w/ Vampire: Bloodlines, though...
...ESPECIALLY true for those who buy the Steam Version, as there are a bunch of quirks w/ the Steam Version.

Yea, I got Dead Space 2 for free from Amazon for buying some other games, but can't recall seeing DS1 cheaper than $5.

Not really a Steam deal, but Fear Complete (including both DLCs for Fear and Reborn for Fear 2) is $7.50 at GamersGate, or $6.38 with IGN discount.

Only Fear 3 can be activated on Steam, but hey GG is a good store to support anyway.

Why isn't Bully on sale? They packed some really good Halloween into that game. I should have picked it up last time.

I have DR OTR and that is no fun playing w/o a controller. That and the controller doesn't even work in game. I've read there is a fix for it but I haven't gotten it to work and stopped trying after about an hour of looking for fixes. That was during the summer sale when the games got down to 9.99. I enjoy the game but a controller is nessecary IMO to complete it. I'd look at the forums to see if the controller works for DR2. 7.49 I think is the lowest price these games have gotten down to, so I reccomend buying now if you want the game.

Although it's been cheaper elsewhere (free from GMG a few months back) Steam has FINALLY added Beyond Divinity to their catalog. Looks like they also upgraded those of us with Divinity II to the developers cut which was also just released.

Thanks! I put my Blue Coins to good use and got 13 in return for the purchase.
