FTL is 40% off on their website and comes with a Steam key for those who can't wait or want to risk it not being on sale during the Holiday sale (which I'm sure it will)

Has anyone else noticed several small updates to most of their games on steam? (like less than 30 MB) Is this for big picture or what are these tiny updates? I can't find any info on them

I got a few like that due to new content conversion whatever, some of the games required 2GB+ download after telling me "this will only take a few minutes". One time it made me redownload Witcher 2.

I'd like the game, but at more than 50% off. I'm still tempted as it's one of the games that works in the Linux beta and I'd play it when I travel later this month.


I got it for 7 through greenman gaming

Trine 2 was just added to the big picture mode sale, 75% off. DLC is only 50% off >:(

Hell Yeah! Wrath of the Dead Rabbit is $2.62 on GMG if you use the 30% off coupon GMG30-DEC01-ARFC9.

I probably would've waited to buy it from there if Amazon and Steam didn't have it for $3.74 first. I got promo credit with it from Amazon though, so not really a loss for me.

GMG should've had it for 75% off earlier, rather than the crappy 50% off they had.

They did. The description on the Alpha package that was in the bundle stated it came with access to all later development builds as well as the finished game. I think it was known at the time that the final game would require Steam.


Well Indiefort at that time was taking a no-Steam keys stance so I hadn't thought there would be a Steamworks (eventually) game in there.

Sounds like digging for information. They need to make it abundantly clear that it would. Hell, had the one dev from world of tanks not told us that certain games would come with steam keys for the new indie fort bundles nobody would have known and gamersgate in the past did not include steam keys for games that were on steam but offered drm free builds.


+1

Gamersgate seems to have this real issue with initially not wanting to give any Steam games out and then later when they did kind of sweeping that fact under the rug instead of promoting.

I get why, they are a competitor and all that business, but they are really screwing over the bundle sales by doing that. I've seen a number of other people on various forums saying they passed on their bundles in the past do to no Steam keys. Now that they are doing them in some cases, they need to do a better job of getting the word out.

Apparently Dawn of War Retail (the first one) got added to the Steam Registry. Humble bonus?

Also ZOMGWTFBBQ TRIPLE TOWN!! It's such a simple silly game but seriously addictive, at least on mobile.

Actually, if I may be so CAGish, the game was $3.74 during the last Steam Holiday Sale. Furthermore, I believe Super Meat Boy was in Humble Indie Bundle IV, as well. Thus, Super Meat Boy has been available for far better prices in the past.

No, it's appropriately large to counter a game like Triple Town.

SMB was HiB 4 and bonus on HiB 5. I figure most seasoned CAGs who cared would own it.

That and 50% off is a pretty poor sale price -- or is it cheaper somewhere else other than Steam?

This thread title is getting me down. I think "The Steam Deal thread V6: Winter is Coming" is much more cheery.

GameStop has a sale on Valve PC games which of course will redeem on Steam. Up to 50% off... right between the Thanksgiving and Winter Sales. I dare you to resist.

Now that you mention it, I agree - "The sale is over, this thread will self-destruct," the title seems to say.

Nevertheless, once the Holiday Sale begins, we'll get a brand new, "more cheery" title.

True. I guess I should say it was pretty clear with most of the games in that bundle that there were no Steam or Desura keys. However, it was also clear that AirBuccaneers Alpha would also include the final release and many articles about that game said it was planned to go final exclusively on Steam if possible.

I get why, they are a competitor and all that business, but they are really screwing over the bundle sales by doing that. I've seen a number of other people on various forums saying they passed on their bundles in the past do to no Steam keys. Now that they are doing them in some cases, they need to do a better job of getting the word out.

Well, I wasn't around for the first two Indiefort bundles. I agree that Indiefort Championship was decidedly non-Steam (and non-Desura.) AirBuccaneers was the clear exception.

Hmm, I just noticed that Dirt 1 was pulled from the steam store. New to me, GRID 2 is set for release next year, yay!

Unfortunately that will mean the mob of seasonal-sales-only CAGs will flood the thread asking questions that were answered for the 20th time a few posts up.

Is there a way to get Steam to auromatically install all Library games instead of clicking through them one by one and having to wait for Steam to freeze up for 5 seconds each time?

Also, we really should start a new thread before the Winter Sale.

In case any of your haven't seen this yet, Portal on a TI-83/84. When did TI calcs get sound? HPs have had sound since the '80s at least.

Edit: NVM, they didn't. There's a hack for audio from their serial port.

Ti's never had sound or at least any model from the 83-89. It amazes me that people still make games for the 83 when the 89 is vastly superior and is used in every calc class.

To get back on track though. Anyone know when the new Skyrim DLC drops?

People, you're forgetting that we all will get to feel useful, knowledgeable and superior, as we squander large amounts of time posting in a thread focused on sales for a digital distribution service.

Isn't that smug high we all get to share worth it in the end?

Why doesn't someone update the OP? Don't any of you have time to update the OP? I can't update the OP because I don't have time to update the OP. I hate you all....
