I've had a hankering for Fallout 3... but it was $4.99 not long ago, so I guess I'll wait.

Got Dracula: Origin. Lots of good adventure game selections on sale, but this one interested me the most.

Unless you really want to play it right now, I'd wait. If the deluxe edition is on sale on PSN for $3.75 then you can bet something around that at the very least at some point, especially a game that is on multiple outlets and is featured in bundles.

I wonder why Dark Souls isn't part of the Halloween stuff. Scares me plenty.

Gamersgate has two GB games on sale for 66% off each. Don't know if you have an account or use them for non steam games.

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.


Dead Island was great on the PC, IMHO - I used KB/mouse for that one. If you wanted a game that plays like Borderlands (first-person ARPG), but instead w/ melee focused combat; killing mostly zombies; and upgrading of your weapons...
...the Dead Island is your ticket. Enjoy your trip in Hanoi.

For Dead Rising 2 (original), I just stuck w/ X360 Controller. I did like Dead Rising 2 and the port was a decent one, even though it does require G4WL
I absolutely prefer Dead Island by a MILE over Dead Rising 2.

When I saw it it was marked 0% off.

Did it ever have any real discount?

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


If this is the GOTY I'd join.

I saw it marked off at 0% too and then a few minutes later that went away and it's been sitting at it's normal price since. :cry: Would have bought it too.

Anythoughts on the Overlord series and The Club? Was thinking of picking up both based on price.

I also think I'm definitely going to bite on Alice this time. I think the game world looks great. I'm a sucker for games with vibrant worlds. I'll be picking up Breath of Death and Cthulu Saves the World because $1 is a price I don't really pass up for any games.

Damn, Dead Space 1 and 2 for $4.99 each? If I didn't already own both on console I'd buy the Fuck outta those.

Really wish there was a demo for Dead Rising 2 as I don't want to buy it and run into issues...

Unfortunately no. I think it might've been a mixup with Cthulhu Saves the World.

You can probably get away with base Overlord for $1.50. The expansion doesn't really add anything great nor does the sequel introduce any new or compelling gameplay mechanics. And I personally think the engine is worse. If you find yourself enthralled with it those games go on sale for 75% or more every major sale (so, you can pick them up in Nov/Dec). Of course you'd end up paying more by not getting the bundle but... again... that's only in the rare instance you find yourself wanting more past the first game.

Is there any more Orcs Must Die 2 DLC coming or is the complete pack really the complete pack.



That's anyone's guess but, imo, if you've waited this long just wait until the Holiday sale and see if it dips to 75% off.

Damn, was hoping for a better price on Alan Wake. Might still pick up Home, though.

Still wish DS1&2 had a pack for $7.50.

Any of the Painkiller games any good? Haven't really heard of them before and would probably look over them, but their really cheap on Steam as well as on GamersGate.

If you have a GamersGate account with IGN discount you can get it for $8.50 there.

That's not the GhostBusters game he's referring to. This is the one, except it got pulled from Steam.


As for Overlord, it's kind of like Nintendo's Pikmin with a dash of evil thrown in. I can't say I liked it more than Pikmin, but it's interesting if you're looking for something different.

When I saw it on the deals on Steam this afternoon I got excited that it was this one and then I remembered it got pulled : ((

Yeah nothing is really interesting me game+price-wise. Only Dead Rising 2 at $7.50, did anyone bite on that? and Limbo - which I'm assuming will be in an Indie bundle sometime, or at least has been. Basically, is it a good time to get it or should I wait for a bundle.


Would like Fallout, Alan Wake, The WD, or Dead Island, but still not cheap enough for me.

How's Prototype?

Kinda tempted by Zombie Driver HD. I was hoping it would be on sale (normal version has been delisted from Steam Store) and was playing the demo last night. Having completed the original release, the demo for ZD HD was a bit surreal very similar but not quite as I remember. I was hoping for cheaper, and the demo made me feel that it hasn't been long enough since playing the original.

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

I really enjoyed Overlord/Raising Hell. You get to control a bunch of minions and cause havoc, "Sheepies!" It has surprisingly good/decent production values (I had low expectations). To be clear Raising Hell is an expansion to overlord that integrates into the base game (kinda like D2:LoD); it fixes some issues and adds some new areas. I haven't gotten far into Overlord 2 yet.
