I never look at the first post of any on-going thread. If I want to know what today's Steam deal are, I'll just look at Steam.


I use the steam app on my iPhone. It has tabs for sale, flash, popular and specials. You can view your wishlist, it shows current prices including % off, and if you're feeling really adventurous you can make purchases from the app while away from your PC.

As a newcomer I have to say, the light-hearted nature of this theard (and others here) are what made me finally decide to register and stick around. If I didn't want the warm and fuzzy atmosphere, I'd do all my discount searching solo and be anti-social like I am IRL.


If not for the community discussion aspect, I'd just be checking in here now and then as an adjunct to other deal sites for info on game sales. I registered and joined in because this is such a friendly place.

Now for the damages.

Steam:
Jagged Alliance 2 Gold $4
Civ III Complete $1.75
Silverfall Complete $3.75
Droplitz $1
Patricians and Merchants Pack $2
Deus Ex DLC $1.25

Amazon:
Bioshock Dual Pack $5 (Even though I got Bioshock 1 for free on Gamefly)
Paradox War Chest $7.50
Zeno Clash $1
Dead Island GOTY $6.80
THQ Bundle (minus the Red Faction games) $7.25

Other:
Double Fine Fortnight, IndieGala Sim, Groupee Build a Bundle 4, Indie Royale Stuffing Bundle, and week 1 of the new Indiefort (with plans to grab all five weeks.)

I was tempted to grab Coconut Queen to see what the fuss is about. I was tempted by LA Noire Complete. I was tempted by Batman GOTY. I was tempted by the Paradox Heavy Seas bundle. I was tempted by a bunch of stuff, but who can get everything?

Same policy's back too:

Looks like one only for Steam completionists, as I have most of this stuff from GMG and other places. I'm not even excited about this one on the cheap unless there are decent bonus games.

If you're not having fun, you're doing it wrong.

Any last minute opinions of Drakensang: The River of Time? I don't think it's ever been 75% off and it's currently this price.

The steam app is great, I use it on my Galaxy S3.

Does anyone know if there is going to be a sale on Farcry 3? This is a game I am definitely going to pick up but am not sure if I should preorder or not.

Haven't played it myself, but a buddy of mine that used to write professional reviews wrote a recommendation on Steam:

A prequel to Drakensang; The Dark Eye and much better game. It feels like they took all of the community complaints about the first one and improved most of the issues.

The game is based off the German pen and paper RPG with deep character skillsets that can be daunting at first look.

This is a story driven linear RPG. Gather a group of followers, battle evil and grind dungeons. Quick travel, paused combat, excellent interface, deep character skill customization and solid art.

Voice acting is a tad cheesy but that is typical of Euro RPG's translated for an English audience. Picked this up for $5 duing the current sale and am pleased.

I wouldn't expect much of a sale right after release. Or, rather, if you can get a good pre-order deal now (30% or so), that'll probably be the same discount you'd get a month or two after the game has been out.

Is any of the Just Cause 2 DLC worth it?

Agreed, black market aerial pack is definitely worth it as it has the booster rocket on the parachute (which can be easily modded to get rid of the limit on its use), a cool fighter jet, and a multi lock rocket launcher.

Monster truck with a gun turret and the hover craft are fun diversions.

It's super cheap so I just picked it all up last time it was on sale.

If you don't mind having in on the Ubisoft client, you can easily get a voucher from one of those AMD graphic cards on ebay for $20ish.

I picked up:
Knights of the Old Republic II $2.50
Theif Gold $2.50
Was gifted Witcher EE (Thanks P!)

I tried to buy Critter Crunch multiple times but the checkout kept getting stuck. I resigned myself with it being a high quality indie title that already has Steamplay and a low enough cost it'll be in a bundle some point or at least go on sale again later.

I always get that "did I miss something?" panic at the end of a sale. Luckily the winter sale is right around the corner to ease my fears. Plus that one game everyone finally bit on will be the daily today for cheaper, so I'll get it then. I hope it's The Walking Dead 75% off.

Anyone think the YS games will be cheaper during the Winter sale? I seem to remember one of them being in some sort of bundle at one point.

They were cheaper in the summer, so I expect them to be cheaper in the winter sale as well (and hopefully cheaper than summer prices).

Sigh... two last minute purchases:

- Castle Crashers (lots of friends bought this one, so hoping for some co-op fun)
- Critter Crunch (where have they been hiding this? Rainbow Barf? Yes!)

My damages.

Analouge + Soundtrack
Sniper Elite Collection
Orcs Must Die 2

Under $20 this sale :D.

Also anyone know of any preorder deals on Far Cry 3? I don't need it for Steam, if I can get it cheap enough (assuming there is no horrible drm).

I think someone mentioned to check ebay as it was in some vid card bundles.

Does anyone know if they've fixed Co-op yet? My son and I played this online a few weeks back and the lag made the game entirely unplayable. We both have 30Mb cable connections, so it wasn't a speed issue. I've seen similar reports of massive slowdowns on the Steam forums, but I haven't tried playing since then.

I don't know if your using it, but there is a fan patch out for it that I highly suggest you use.

You might find that article helpful.


BTW- Thanks for pointing me to this article, Terlan. Runs 100x better now.
