You mean as an upgrade over the regular edition? If so, wouldn't it just be cheaper to buy the DLC?


No, there's an upgrade option for 5 bucks. DLC by itself would total much more.

Oh you're right. I didn't see that there. The DLC included in the GOTY is just under $10. Obviously it would be better to buy the upgrade.

Whether it's actually worth it, I can't say. I still haven't played Civ 4, never mind Civ 5.

Problem 1: The Oddboxx still isn't 75% off

Problem 2: The Bit.Trip Collection 2012 is about $5 more expensive then buying the games and soundtracks individually(unless this updates)

Problem 3: Psychonauts does not need to be on sale for the 11 thousandth time. Those who want it have owned it for a long time.

Problem 4: The Secret World hasn't been a daily/flash sale yet. It HAS to be a daily/flash sale now that Severose has bought it ;). Thank you Severose!

Yeah... I'd be shocked if any truly new deals popped up in the last five days at this rate.

Just finished Indie Game The Movie, thought it was pretty damn relatable as someone trying to get into the music industry. They can definitely come off as pretentious/egotistical but damn they put their hearts into the shit (well the Braid dude was weird...). That dude who made Fez is just mad nice.

Can we have that Big Picture sale back? Some better deals in that, quite frankly.

Is it just me, or did the Need For Speed flash sale drop from 75% to 50%?

Also LOL at the Bit Trip Bundle, yet another package more expensive than the individual cost. I try to stay positive on the sale since I've still managed to spend too much, but this is getting pretty sad...

Did the need for speed games just go up in price? I swear it was $5 for hot pursuit and $2.50 for undercover a little bit ago.

-edit: apparently I am not the only one who noticed.

It was nice hearing part of the stories behind those games, some of their inspirations and the shit they were dealing with. For once, a film about making games where it's not all PR BS. I just wish I hadn't dropped $10 on it, but I couldn't predict its inclusion in a Humble Bundle. Still, it was worth seeing.

If I want to play the old Doom games, are the Steam versions the best way to go?

That's just precious.

Memo to self, if any EA game that I'm looking to pick up appears at 75% off, pick it up ASAP. It likely wont be 75% for long.

Just another standout moment in this sale.

I think it's a glitch. If you visit the game's pages they have the generic Holiday Sale! notice rather than the Flash sale notice it should have.

Either glitched out or ended early for whatever reason. Half off was their default discount.

Looks like there's a new version of Steamgifts called Galagiveaways by the Indie Gala site.

http://www.galagiveaways.com

I created two to test. Initially, I wanted to put them up here eventually but since my last two keys got lurked without a simple thanks I decided against it.

First one
Second One

I don't believe this, I had all three of those in my cart while I was checking out the SimBin racing games...

Oh well, at least Quake 1 is (probably) still on sale...

WORST STEAM SALE EVER !!!

Eh... Even though that feature is implemented automatically now, some games still don't let you change the install directory. I suggest you look into symbolic linking if you want to move those games to different drive.


Anyone know how to symbolic link? No idea what that is. Anyways my solution to SRTT not working was it wouldn't install on an external, so I had to install Steam onto my C: and then download it there and it worked. But normally I run Steam from my external HD and I can't change the install directory to C:...so my dillema remains pretty much.

Agreed. Anyone who's had or has a dream about doing something they love and putting painstaking effort into it, telling people your working and all that, its definitely relatable to all artists of any kind. & damn $10, but it was a great watch. thanks HIB

Damn, I go to sleep and miss... nothing...lol...at least catching up on the thread is entertaining. Hearing about more prices going up mid flash sale is not surprising. And what happened to QUAKE 1 BEING ON SALE IS ONLY A GLITCH?

It looks like it wasn't.

Steam Mover worked like a charm for me (if I'm understanding what you are trying to do)

You use the mklink command.

(Snort). This.

And never mind the change in the Need for Speed stuff.

I'm working today but this'll be the first Steam sale where I haven't refreshed the Steam pages every time there was an update.

I'm not sure I fully understand your question, but I own all of the Doom games through Steam and they all work perfectly fine.
