I'm as surprised as anyone Borderlands 2 is this cheap already, but pretty sure I'll wait for the GOTY. I mean, the Season Pass is another $30, which in my mind says "This is really still a $60 game, sold in two parts." I'm not anti-dlc, but it seems to me unless you buy the Season Pass, you're not buying the full game. Perhaps that's not entirely fair to the devs, I'll admit, but the perception is there.


No, that's a valid point, although maybe more on the publisher than the devs. I feel smug having picked up BL2 before release for <$35, but I also bought the season pass right after launch for another ~$22. The content is there, but if you're not gonna play it immediately, no sense in not waiting for a significantly discounted GOTY. I count BL2 as one of my 3 "full-price" purchased games in the last 6 years or so.

It's nice to see that Deus Ex: Human Revolution reached $4.99. I already own the game, but I don't have The Missing Link DLC. (Furthermore, I'm not the type to grab weapon DLC.)

My question is: Is The Missing Link DLC for Deus Ex: HR worth the $3.74? Thanks in advance, my CAGly comrades.

Hrmm...I've got too many games to play, but I'm really tempted to get Mark of the Ninja and/or Chivalry.

Anyone here have thoughts on Chivalry?

EDIT: Yknow, I got half-price MSP from Target, so I may wait for a sale on that on XBL. Even if it doesn't go on sale, buying it full price for xbox with these half price points would be about the same effective price for me. I'm going to rule that out for now.

I would say it is worth it. It lets you experiment with different skills upgraded.

The DLC itself is good; s'got a nice relatively self-contained narrative and a boss fight different from the main game's. But at that price? Although I can't see it going much lower anytime soon, my gut balks at the difference in price being so little when the difference in quantity is so large.

Hmmm, Hotline Miami is tempting as a flash deal for $5, but I'll hold off for now in case it's a legit deal this week.


They should be the same

Hard to take that serious when you say you haven't played D3 yet though.... though I get your point.



I played the trial, which is basically the first half of Act I or whatever. Game is overrated.

Keep in mind that the Autumn sale ends Monday, so we really only have one more day's worth of daily deals left. As of Day 4, I haven't seen any flash and daily sales overlap, so, if you were looking to pick it up during this sale, this is probably the lowest it's going to be (even when sales overlapped in the summer, aside from the random price mistake, they were the same price during repeats). Of course, if you can wait, it'll probably go even lower in next month's winter sale, so it depends more on if you were looking to play it now (IMHO, totally worth it and highly recommended) or just add it to the collection.

I'm nearly 80 hours in and I'm confident in saying that I would gladly play full price for this game. I also got the game for about the same price as a preorder (Mechromancer class as a preorder bonus) and got a deal from a CAG for the season pass for $20 but I'd gladly pay full price for just how much joy the game has provided me so far.

Played 2 chapters of Hotline Miami and I gotta say, I dig it and understand why it is getting a lot of praise.

Is anyone played the Serious Sam TSE DLC? Worth it?

If I'm in the middle of deus ex hr and get the explosive and tactical dlc, and do I have to restart the game to get those benefits or will it update my current save?

As I understand it, if you activate a key for the Augmented Edition, it will upgrade your copy. You basically lose one copy of the game doing it that way though. I bought the big Square/Enix pack from Amazon a month ago and I briefly considered using the key to upgrade my copy on my main account. But since there is no actual in game content, I decide instead to use the key on my secondary steam account. That way I can get the extras without feeling like I wasted a copy of the game.

Japan was giving out free Hitman Sniper Challenge keys and those quickly became region locked. These german keys will probably be just as bad

What do you guys think of Disciple 3?
http://store.steampo....com/sub/14181/
I've been thinking about getting it, but I also know about Disciples Reincarnation which has both Disciples 3 games and apparently improved features. But it seems like it's only sold through gamersgate http://www.gamersgat...s-reincarnation.

What do you guys thing of Enchantress? People seem to be comparing it to Lords of Magic which was a game I loved forever ago, but I know Enchanter or...whatever the last version was called was terrible, so I'm hesitant...

I might try that out! Thanks for putting me at ease. I figured the extras were worth a Subway sandwich :D

Mark of the Ninja looks fun. Bought!

Wish the BL2 season pass would go cheaper already. I'll just have to entertain myself with all the side quests I've been neglecting instead.

I copped it a few months back with the intention of playing with strangers but it was totally dead. I don't like single-player Serious Sam.

What's in my trunk?
