We're posting our hauls already? Here's mine:

Darksiders Franchise Pack (Amazon)
Scribblenauts Unlimited (Amazon)
LEGO Lord of the Rings (Amazon)
Bethesda Pack (Gamersgate)
Alan Wake's American Nightmare (Gamersgate)
Tomb Raider Collection
Dead Rising 2 Complete Pack

Probably going to buy at least one Sims 3 expansion pack today. Motoki mentioned that Sims 3: Medieval is super cheap in Australia. Is that still the case? If so, is there anyone able to get it that price?

Toast and muffins. You people disgust me.


+1 Muffins.

Some people like cupcakes better. I, for one, care less for them.
Spoiler


if I want to get one of the Thief games, which one should I get?


If you just want one, you're doing it wrong. (Extremely helpful, aren't I?)

The Sims Medieval is $2.19 in the Aussie Store, anyone interested in picking one up for a even $3USD drop me a pm. I have work in about 2 hours.

Anyone with Marketplace feedback of 50 or more, $2.19 will be fine.

For once I actually purchased more games outside of Steam (GMG, Amazon, GamersGate), which tells me that Steam needs to step up their game. I did, however, get Dead Rising 2 Complete, KOTOR 2, and Max Payne Bundle on Steam.

Tempted by Tropico 4 it looks like a great game but there's a ton of DLC and I know at some point there will be a "collection" pack with all of the DLC for $5 :lol:

Also the Borderlands 2 Season pass really needs to go on sale. Oh and the steam version of Kingdoms of Amalur while they are at it.

I've never played a Tropico game, but Tropico 4 for $6 seems like a good deal, yeah?

Can't believe I come back from lunch a few minutes late, and already missed the Wireless Xbox controller deal from Amazon. The other thread said it sold out in 6 minutes flat.

I think so. It's the only one that is really worth it imho. It adds a lot of new modern buildings with various functions.

Note though that you can't access them early on in the game. They come into play in the later years.

I've played it on AMD Vision Integrated Graphics and it runs fine. The game isn't configured well so it's a bit taxing and can be laggy for people even with a dedicated card, but I haven't had any issues.

How does The Sims 3 Medieval expansion work? Is it just a separate world that you play in?

Oh good, so you were able to get one on the waitlist then? I would of rather gotten it for $30, but $35 is the best I can probably hope for in the short term and matches the amazon low on camel X 3. Tried playing Bastion with a mouse and keyboard but it is SOOO irritating since you have to move diagonally to go "straight," now I can finally see what all the fuss is about.

Sims Medieval $2 in the Australian steam store? Sure would like a copy.

Yeah I joined the wait list about 10 minutes after it was 100% claimed, and somehow still made it through! :applause:

$35 is a really good price considering it has the Microsoft-made wireless adapter, which for whatever reason they don't make any more. Even the Chinese knock-off receivers are $10-$15, so I think it's a good price.

EA Yanked it from Steam a while back for an unknown reason and there is currently no way to get it for the Steam version of the game AFAIK.

Still, for $2 and change for the base, I won't complain even if I can't get the expansion.

So is the Sims that good? It's always looked super interesting. Does it have long playability or just a short run till it gets boring?

Wondering if we're not going to see a daily/flash for Trine. That'd be a shame.


IF you mean the first Trine, I still have a giftable copy lingerin' around. Want it for two dolla fifteh?


That said, no deals for me today. Arma II is interesting but since those moneyhoggin' barfs won't sell it under 12,50 euros it's no deal. Not worth a mod that's still in alpha phase.


Also here's my haul:

Saints Row 3 Complete: 7,50

Yep.

To activate Hunted: The Demon's Forge and DOOM 3 BFE, or sell...

Hmmm... Raccoon City is 66% off as well at $17. Dunno if I should bite; base price may drop, but then again, Capcom is tight on discounts in the first place.

McPixel looks weird enough that I would play it for free, or maybe a dollar, but $2.50 feels too expensive.
