i am just hoping for the ys games to go 75% off, they didnt get much of a sale on the summer sale(they were $5 for the oath, and $8 for ys origins, i am hoping for $3.75 and 5

so far, all i bought was kotor 2(and also picked up gods and kings for civ v on amazon for $7.50)
http://www.amazon.co...=gods and kings

ignore all of the 'macintosh only" warnings, it gives you a steam code, which gives both pc and mac versions when you redeem it on steam

Hello all! Long time reader, first time poster. I have a question about this sale:

Should I bite on this sale knowing that the Winter sale is literally a few weeks away?

Thank in advance for the advice!

If it's 75% off, than yes. Otherwise wait till, new daily/flash deals or winter sale.

Why am I seeing Risen 2 at $22.97?


Same. I even got the Amazon Student email, and I have the discounted Prime membership this year :\

if you see a lightning deal, on a game, like kotor 2 for example for $2.50, i doubt it will go cheaper on the winter sale.

for games like skyrim, i fully expect it to go much cheaper on the winter sale, hopefully under $20.

If there's something you really, really, absolutely want, and it's cheap enough (like 66% or 75% off), then feel free to buy. The winter sale will be much the same, except perhaps some newer titles might see marginally larger discounts.

e.g. Skyrim was £34.99 at full price.
In the Winter Sale 2011 it hit £23.44 (33% off).
I think it's been 50% off sometime not long ago, but at the moment it's listed at 33% off again.
I'd be shocked if we didn't see it as a daily deal, where you can expect a 40/50/66% off.
Edit1: You may see 50/66/75% off at Christmas but no promises.

The golden rule is to not buy something unless it's either a) a featured sale like a "flash" sale/daily deal, or b) the last day of the sale and you cant wait until Christmas.

Edit2: I'm never replying ever again, this thread is moving too fast! :lol:

FTL
Recettear
Awesomenauts
(maybe) Walking Dead

Going to pick up Mass Effect 2 for $10 and Limbo for $2.50. Also VVVVVV is $2.50.

Just saw that indieroyale site for the first time. What an awesome concept! I wonder if I should hold off on Limbo and try to get it on that site sometime.


you may want to get me on amazon, it is $15 for me1 and 2, dragon age origins ultimate and da2, instead of getting me2 for $10 now

You should buy Walking Dead, it's the 2nd best game I played this year (behind XCOM, which you should....probably wait to see if it hits 50% off now or Winter sale). I doubt it's going to get cheaper before the end of the year as it just released the final episode today.

I think I'm in for Inversion 2, looks fun. I don't see the point in waiting for a bundle with 5 other games I don't want even if it saves me a buck or two. Damn to whoever posted that search filter for cheap indies.

Getting Kotor 2 for sure. Trying to decide if I want to get Xcom now or wait until Christmas...I almost bought it full price a couple days ago.

Notice: This is a stand alone expansion and does not require the original Silverfall to buy or play Earth Awakening.

Makes me wonder if you even need to buy the original at all.

Re: People experiencing 'Grimrock fever' -- I wouldn't be surprised if it hit 75% off as a daily/flash.

I have yet to play the last episode (plan on doing that tonight), but I second this. Telltale deserves major kudos. I liked their earlier work, but this is way, way ahead of anything they've done. Definitely a GOTY contender.

It's funny because I think both Walking Dead and XCOM are worth their original price, so if I didn't have both I would have jumped at their sale prices today. Even if it was going to be any cheaper in winter.

This is a single player RPG, and I believe the "expansion pack" has a completely different storyline. So it's kind of like Dungeon Siege 1 and Dungeon Siege: Legend of Aranna (Same engine, different story)

You don't need the base silverfall game but IIRC you start out at like level 40 or something if you just have the expansion or if you start your character in the expansion. It has been a long time since I have played it though.

Also, I found Grimrock to be well worth the 12.50 I payed for it on release. I am biased to loving those types of games since I grew up on them but still it was well done. Saying that, I would not be surprised either if it had a daily sale for cheaper.
