I'm not sure if anyone will know. I have Sims Medieval on Steam. Amazon is selling the expansion for $10 in their download sale tomorrow ($5 off $15 or something). Will that work for the Steam version? The expansion is not available on Steam, so if not, how can I even get it? Confusing.

I don't believe it will. They don't work for the Sims 3 I can say that for sure.

EA yanked the Sims Medieval expansion from Steam for some unknown reason and never has put it back.

What you can do though is that you should be able to take your key from the Medieval base on Steam and activate that to Origin and then get the expansion there or elsewhere and play it through Origin.

Not ideal, but it gets you the expansion working. :-/

ANyone have any thoughts - Hearthfire worth the $2.47? I honestly haven't played much of Skyrim - having a hard time getting into it. I'm tempted to wait for the summer/winter sale in 2013, just because I'm not sure I'll ever get around to playing it.

You know, maybe I'm just a cheap bastard and I know it's Ubisoft and they too are cheap bastards but I feel like Rayman Origins should be $5 on sale by now.

Does the Steam version at least not have the shitty Tages DRM that the non-Steam versions do?

I hear you. Although, it's worth noting that only the console versions have hit the 12-month mark [in terms of release date]. The PC version was released at the end of March of this year, so I can understand a little extra time.

Nevertheless, Ubisoft may be stingy about Origins - I believe they put the game on sale recently on the PlayStation Network, but, even then, the PS+ discount still didn't amount to sub-$10. Thus, it seems Ubisoft is waiting as long as possible before dropping the price to CAG-approved levels.

Really? I think sigs are highly important and people should focus on them as much as they do the post. Especially if they have some spare paypal cash lying around...


May be feeling a sense of sarcasm here...

God that's alotta mods for KOTOR II.

The PS+ discount made it a little under ten dollars on PS3. ~9.89.

I picked it up a few days ago.

It's ok. You basically just kinda grind-out the mats and items, look at your finished house, and say "Yup, that's a house alright."

It's nice for the convenience in that it gives you a fast-travel point and gathers things like crafting, stables, and a cart in one place but you could probably do much of that with mods.

I feel that it's good for that price but if you aren't playing Skyrim much then just wait until Dragonborn is out and then snag all of the DLC in a sale.

A very cool Skyrim Mod:

I managed to sleep off the half minute hero deal, but now that these restoration mods are out there, I might pick up KOTOR 2.

Also purchased and played the first two chapters of The Room on the ipad last night, which was pretty great. It's a puzzle box thing. (While I'm recommending ios things, Into The Dead is like a first-person version of that racecar game you played on your graphing calculator, (with zombies,) and free.)

Groupees is allowing people to buy one game on the Greenlight build a bundle for 75 cents between now and Dec 26.

Note that if you buy 1 game you still get La Mulana with a Desura key and Steam key when it gets greenlighted in addition to your one other game.

I love that game and still have a soft spot for it but if you run it vanilla it's very dated so you will need to mod it, at very least for a much needed facelift.

Unlike the games that came after it, its not very handholdy so if you go to an area that's a more difficult area you will get spanked. Enemies are not leveled to you.

It's a very unique and interesting game where I think they did an excellent job in creating an environment that isn't just the generic fantasy shlock and you really feel like you are in another world completely from everything to cultural norms, plant life, animals etc.

If you don't mind hunting down some mods I would say go for it.

And soon enough if you bought anything 2K in the past year you can get another $5 off to get that bundle for $5.

I already own both Bioshocks and I don't even want Spec Ops but at that price I will probably still grab it and then sell off the Bioshocks for a dolla'.

You know you have too many games on Steam when you can look at the top 20 best seller list and you own everything besides some of the DLC for some games and a few small games from a bundle lol
