Come up with a game where you plant flowers and have to care for them until they bloom and drop out puppies that poop more flower seeds and these guys will be lining up to buy it.


Oooh, what game is this?


More importantly, is it on sale?

Top 10 contender for most obvious troll post of the year in this thread.


Everyone who you disagree with is a troll? I happen to agree with DarkPGR. Every new time another steam sale happens, I am less and less impressed. This comes, of course, because I've been through like 10 of them and already have most of the games I have ever wanted. And Steam simply can't compete anymore with the massive discounts GMG has because of their coupons. $13 Sleeping Dogs, for example.

His second point is also completely valid. GMG and Gamersgate support teams are MUCH, MUCH better than that of Steam. I don't know if you've ever tried contacting Steam support, but if you do, be prepared to wait weeks to receive some automated response. GMG, on the other hand, usually responds within a day or two and offers credit if they've taken too long for the trouble.

another lame sale on steam... GamersGate and GMG have really been doing pretty well. That, with the added benefit of not being valve (so they have some actual good customer service)

A fair and balanced assessment of the whole sale on it's first day. Tune in tomorrow; we'll be poo pooing the Steam Winter Sale before it even happens! ...though I also feel that GMG & GG have had good game the last few months.

I think it's slightly different in this case. Oath in Felghana was the same price during the entire summer sale and never went lower, Jade Empire dropped in price right after the summer sale ended.

Ys Origin only had 1 flash sale and afterward it stayed at $11.99 throughout the summer sale.

Neither games had daily deals, so if anyone is interested in them I would suggest checking flash deals just in case.


All this Ys yammering and no one remembers that one of them was in a Steam Daily $10 "Indie Bundle" with Gemini Rue and 3 fillters?

I emailed Steam support once telling them Amazon was going to have a great upcoming sale and stating they should consider running a similar sale or risk losing money. I got a response like 2 weeks after the sale with a generic "we do not price match, please continue to watch the site for upcoming sales."

I remember it, but I like to pretend that bundle never existed.. cuz I had every other game in it aside from Ys at the time lol. It was a crappy bundle overall for people that collect indie bundles. I ended up buying Ys seperately.

New flash deals, expire in 12 hours:
Dear ester 75%, $2.49
Two Worlds: velvet ed. 75%, $7.49 (dlc by itself is also 75% off if you have the base game already)
Dungeon Defenders 75%, $3.74 (and apparently 4 pieces of free DLC, not sure if this is new or old, two halloween packs, thanksgiving pack, and anniversary pack; rest of dlc is 75% off)

Man I wished they changed the color of the DLC text or something when you own it, it's a pain to check which DLC you already own for a game with a LOT OF fuckING DLC.

Didn't even realize there was a sale, logged on, saw KoToR 2 on flash sale for $2.50. If that's the only game I buy this sale, I'll be perfectly satisfied. Seriously lucked out finding that; that's been like my most wanted game for awhile now.

Terraria - $1 (Steam),  X3: Terran Conflict - $2 (Steam)Fable: The Lost Chapters - $2 (Steam)

WARNING: Two Worlds II has some really restrictive 3-limit activation. Buy, don't buy, just be aware.

Man I wished they changed the color of the DLC text or something when you own it, it's a pain to check which DLC you already own for a game with a LOT OF fuckING DLC.


This! You can simply hit add all to cart and then look at the "you own this noob" labeling in the cart, then tediously expel everything you don't want from the cart.

The two EA published Deathspank games have never been below 50% off (what they currently are now). It's hilarious because they aren't even sold on Origin. Two years after release I have no idea why they can't drop to $3.75 each when stuff like Dead Space 1 and 2 sell for $5.

If you've compiled a wishlist on Steam, I'd check that. Nearly my entire wishlist is currently on sale. Just waiting to see if certain things become daily deals or flash sales.


I enjoy checking my wishlist to consistently see Resident Evil 5 holding steady at full price.:roll:

I never said if I disagreed with him or not, so no. I don't care if you or DarkPGR don't like the sale or Steam customer service. If I want to know about GMG and GG, I go to those threads. Which I do, because I purchase from them fairly regularly.

Posting in a thread with no point other than disparaging the topic at hand is just trolling.

Just bought anything that was less than $1.25 that I didn't have already. Horrid Henry, Mole Control, Garshasp, Bumbledore, Cricket Revolution--I now officially own all of the cheapest indie games on Steam, for better or worse.

My list of games is looking more and more like a trailer park brothel with every sale...

Yeah. I don't know why they f'd up the interface for the sale. It's like they want me to get frustrated and not buy anything. Psh, good luck with that gaben.
