I bought RAGE: Anarchy Ed (PC) from Retail.
It takes up around 22 GB.

So the Steam download version would also be 20+ GB? I would love to get it for $5, but for such a large download I would just wait for a good price on the retail version. Same thing with Max Payne 3.

I posted this in the gamersgate thread also:
Gamersgate has :

Borderlands 2 (4 pack) - $134.89 (Steamworks)

With IGN discount and G2PO:

$107.91

$26.97 per person.


I'm very tempted, but I think I'm gonna wait until a GOTY edition, especially since I'm only half way through the first one.


Tempting but I will support the 29.99 release by amazon I think

Yes, that's the game's install size - that's why I bought RAGE (PC) in a Retail Box.
It would be the same size on the download.

That's a hell of a deal for RAGE PC in a Retail Box.

Thanks for the heads up. I just ordered it! I would never have though of looking at Newegg.

That's actually where I bought RAGE Anarchy Ed (PC Retail Box), long while back - back when it hit $20 not too long after its original release, since the game bombed sales-wise on the PC.

I wouldn't mind upgrading Dead Island to GOTY but I just can't because ir's the same cost as someone else getting the whole shebang.

Could be a smaller download, Hitman was like 13GB download and installed to around 22GB. I recall Rage was probably at least 20 dl but with that new Steam content system, maybe it's more compressed?

Ooooh, I forgot about Steam's new/recent content system change.
You might have a point there.

So, I don't know now... [shrug]

The DLC is pretty terrible anyway, so I would not stress out about it much.

Wondering if I should plonk down for Dead Island or Rage.

Been waiting for $5 Dead Island, do I really split that many hairs over a $1?

It's closer to $2, since it's $6.79. If that helps :P I'm waffling myself, because I already have plenty of zombie games and don't really need another. But... it would look so nice sitting in my steam backlog library.

I just bought XCOM and that's pretty much all the game I need at the moment. Plus, with a $180 VITA looming at Amazon... erggh.

Depends.

Dead Island, IMHO, is the best zombie game around. It's basically Borderlands (open-world ARPG), but instead w/ an emphasis melee weapons and battling mostly zombies. Jump online w/ some friends - it's even more awesome. One thing, though - don't expect the story-telling and narrative-emphasis from the original amazing trailer in this game on a regular basis; it happens here and there. On the other hand - Ryder White DLC (that DLC is SP only) though does a very good job w/ storytelling, explaining/filling in why the plot twist in the story Dead Island (base game) actually happens, even though Ryder just doesn't level-up at all in that DLC.

About RAGE PC - do you have the PC to run this? Even I can't run RAGE PC well at 1920x1080 maxed-out (i7 950; 1 GB of GF GTX 560 Ti; 8 GB RAM; Win 7 64-bit). I have to run it a res' down or so to 1690x1050, just to get it running nice. Game's not well optimized here, either. I still wish they'd fix the performance issues. Regardless - it's a good open-world shooter. As you'd expect from an Id shooter - the combat itself is awesome and feels fantastic. Some of the side quests are repetitive, though - you'll often revisit main quests areas you already explored and killed enemies in, more or less. Just don't expect heavy ARPG loot elements like Borderlands or decision-making elements like Fallout 3/FO: New Vegas here - it's NOT those games. It's more or less a typical linear Id FPS Shooter, but w/ open-world travelling (via buggies) to get to an area. Though, while the story is nothing great - I love the characters in this game; Id's never had characters ever this interesting or this much personality ever before. The voice-acting is pretty good. BTW, I should note this - RAGE has a terrible cliffhanger ending that is abrupt as hell - so I'm hoping one day Id does go on to do RAGE DLC or (better yet) RAGE 2...

I played it on xbox 360. Even with all the bugs and glitches it was a great game in my opinion. I also bought a PC copy when amazon had it on sale. It can get repetitive but it best played in co-op.

Has anyone played Gatling Gears? It looks really nice but the DRM and activation limit make me want to stay away. However this post makes it not sound as bad as it could be. The limit is a 24 hour one, but the drm remains.

It looks like it's the first time it's been $2.49 though. Thoughts?

The Mac version of Civ V Gods and Kings is $7.50 on Amazon. I'm pretty sure since it needs Steam, it nets you both the Mac and PC versions. The other DLC is on sale, too.

Is it worth picking up? Or is it going to go lower than $7.50? (Yes, I guess I am that cheap, unless I'm going to play something immediately.)

I grabbed it from Amazon and have put 5 hours back into Civ 5 since last night. I feel like it added a lot to the game and brought back some of the things it had been missing since Civ 4. I doubt it will go lower than $7.50 this year, but at worst you'd be losing a dollar or two at most. As for the DLC's I can't comment, I only have the base game and now Gods and Kings.

So, are these flash deals more or less just every 6 hours or so?
