Not sure if this is hilarious or just something that might haunt my dreams. XD

So what were people's final tallies? I spent more than I thought I did when I added it all up. I'm done unless something special comes up or someone bought something I missed. Was tempted by The Witcher 2 but then realized I've yet to play the first one. Also tempted by the Sherlock Holmes collection for $8.74 but I may just wait until the Winter sale.

Amazon $9.99

WB Action Pack:
Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY
Lord of the Rings: War in the North
Mortal Kombat

Gamefly $10.06

Spec Ops The Line $5.99
Syndicate $4.07

Steam $46.43

Alpha Prime $1.24
Batman Arkham City GOTY $7.49
Crysis Maximum Edition $8.99
Garshap Temple of the Dragon $1.24
Legend of Grimrock $3.74
Silverfall Complete $3.74
Torchlight 2 (x2) $15.00
Transformers: War for Cybertron $4.99

Surprisingly not that bad this time around - only spent around $150. I wanted to hit the 2,000 games mark so bad but fell about 70 short. Oh well, Winter is coming.

Do you guys think Steam will PM Amazon's price for KoA: Reckoning via flash sales or no?

Shark: He's rectangley. That's how you'll know him. By his rectangularness.

Get The Witcher 2, it was worth the full price of the special edition I bought.

Loved that game.

Nope. I don't know of a time when Steam matched a competitor's price ever. In this case this also relates to KoA having a different publisher on Steam than elsewhere.

Ah, it's nice to see Motoki's memory kept alive.

EDIT: Oh man, Castle Crashers can be had for as low as $3.74 (With a CAGly 4-Pack). If anyone could confirm what console content made the delayed leap to PC, I'd appreciate the info heavily.

if this doesn't make him leave, he's back for good. :bouncy:

Oh you guys. :imwithst:
Anyway, there's a bunch of crap over at Big Fish on sale for $2.99 if you enter the code CYBER. Most of it IS crap, but some is decent like 4 Elements II which is on Greenlight but oddly not on Steam yet.

Welcome Back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Sweet, had an active final day after getting nothing but Dredmor DLC the first five days. Grabbed a Castle Crashers 4 pack and traded two off for Witcher 2 (thanks Landon66). Now watch Castle Crashers be in the next Indie Royale.

Question: Is that promotion still active where you can add a Witcher 2 code to GOG?

Bastion $3.74
Just Cause 2 $3.74
Testament of Sherlock Holmes $19.99

Bastion while having been in a indie bundle is still worth it at that price. Just cause 2, well at that price you can't go wrong. Can't comment on the sherlock holmes game though.

I have to admit that I started this sale pretty dissapointed. First few days were fairly good sales, but all on items I had no interest in. The last few days have made up for it, with my only regret on the matter being that I missed the $5 flash sale on THPS HD. >< (Oh well, i'm sure it'll be that much or lower come Christmas)

Anyway, haul so far is Arkham City GOTY for $7.50. Going to grab Castle Crashers tonight (hopefully for $3.75 if i can help it!), and debating Torchlight 2. Might go ahead and spring for it if I can get a 4-pack going.

Also, good to see you again Motoki, even if you have adopted that nightmare fuel avatar! :D

Personally, I will probably jump at the sound of skeleton hooves and distant screaming for the rest of my life.

I think my wallet made a shrieking sound and scurried off into a dark corner, once I pulled up the Steam page.

And it lists that publisher as 38 Studios so pretty sure that game is not getting any attention on steam. I gave up a while back and now have it on Origin.

It's been on sale so much that I think most people that wanted it have already bought it.

Any of the tropico dlc worth it?


Yeah I guess I'm kinda wondering the same thing. The answer I'd love it hear is "none of it... just get the base game". Otherwise I'm holding out.

This. It's the 5th time when it's 75% off and it will be discounted again on winter sale. I'm predicting a permanent price drop soon. Maybe after then I'll finally grab it.

The you broke the "don't buy until it's 75% off" rule. Bad CAG, BAd.

So wait, there's one more set of flash deals rolling in 5-ish hours right? Then that's it and we are safe to buy anything that didn't make a flash or daily?

Assuming they don't pull a Jade Empire tomorrow, that is.

If you're playing Dark Souls: PTD on the PC, you NEED DSFix.

And that's it lol. I was hoping Faster Than Light would get a drop, but looks like the only other thing I might pick up is Primal Carnage.

No, Civ3 is terrible, the worst in the series, I wouldn't even install it. Civ4+DLC is IMO the best of the series, but if you have never played a 4x style strategy game then Civ5 might be the better choice to start with.
