I don't expect them to be good, but I still feel a little disappointed when I realise they are bad.

I mentioned about how odd it was that it was 17% off, being such a random number and someone on here said that if it does go deeper it'll be 33 or 34% off as 17% is half that. In a way, I'm thinking of just waiting till the next sale as I'm sure it'll go maybe a few more percent deeper than say a 33% discount to maybe 40%. But I have a backlog of at least 50-75 games spread over multiple platforms anyhow

Seriously doubt we will see 33%. Amazon had it for 20% off, and Amazon has beaten just about every Steam sale price this winter.

It will likely be 20% off if it hits a daily. That's why we're seeing a nonsense 17% off price right now, so that they can go to 20% off and it will still be a "sale".

RR:U was cheaper when it was on sale on GMG a few weeks ago. Didn't buy it back then because I hoped for an ever bigger price drop (like $7.5).

You know, to this day I can't think about Ridge Racer without thinking about battles against giant crabs.

It's always entertaining to see you promote Amazon in this thread, and get thrashed at by people in the Amazon thread.

but how do they keep getting worse?

Worse? They are still good deals. Better than MSRP, and better than their normal non sale prices.

Could they be better? Absolutely.

Enough people seem to not care enough about Borderlands 2 being on sale or not and are buying it for 44.99$ lol It's #20 in the top sellers list.

At least Ridge Racer is unique!

This sale isn't all it's cracked up to be to me mostly because I own all the games already. I'd have been pretty happy about some of these deals if I didn't already have a too massive Steam library. D:

Season pass is the DLC. 4 content packs for it. They'll be 9.99 a piece, so you save 10 bucks if you buy the pass.

Thanks! Were there three different codes tonight? I found two on this thread, but the IGN code site is only showing one...


Yes, there were three last night. No idea if they are still active. And here they are...

Good to hear it's working! Yeah, Steam calculates the value of anything not purchased on Steam as "Free" (aka +0) so it doesn't get added. Also, it will tally total purchases, so this will include items purchased for someone else as a gift.

I wonder if Motoki will be brave enough to look...



Sorry, I fell asleep just before midnight. I always do that on NYE. :-P

Total Spent: $2297.79

Yikes. I'm actually hoping it does include other stores, because if it doesn't...

Lies! But, Happy New Year!

Nice script j-shak. Wish I could use it in the client, but I will definitely get some use out of it. To be more depressing folks, don't forget that that total doesn't reflect purchases outside of Steam itself (bundles, Amazon, GMG). Does it include gifts purchased?



I think it includes gifts. I've gifted a lot so that # probably reflects that too. I hope.

Yes it does included amounts gifted.

I've passed on plenty of other $2.50 indie titles, waiting for bundling, so I'ma gonna do the same with Hotline. Nothing else in the Amazon EC list jumping out at me, pricewise.



Personally, I think the EC thing is rather lame. I noticed a number of the games like Dark Souls and some of the EA stuff they raised the sale price so that even now with the discount added it's either back down to a previous sale price or only just a hair lower.

The Sims pack for $45 is not a bad deal but most of the rest are meh and really need a price match elsewhere to get decent deals.

Let's hope Steam puts EC stuff on sale the next few days, or else that Gamefly or Gamestop does this month.

If not, I have a whole mess of $5 credits that won't get used.

^^^^
Can't blame Amazon. People game the system, report their scheme in the Amazon thread, Tony reads it, then pushes the "STOP" button.
But I'm guessing they either ran of out keys, or the bundles got pulled until 1/2 [when they were scheduled to go live].



This.

People have been in there going 'Oh I wonder if Hotline Miami will end up free with the credit. It's already selling well so I don't see why they would. But if they do a price match' etc etc in front of the god damned Amazon rep.

I'm like HELLO PEOPLE!?! STFU if you want a deal and just let them price match stuff without going out of your way to point it out so they might think twice about it. *shakes head*

yay Ridge Racer Unbounded... finally


Fina... oh... only 66% off? :cry:

Eh, it's Namco Bandai and I don't know that we are going to get it much cheaper than this on Steam.

Also that recent GMG sale on it was UK only. Or at least it was blocked from the US. I checked. Not sure about Aus/NZ though.

30% voucher on digital games!

Celebrate the Holiday Season with a 30% Discount on Digital Games!

We love sales at GMG, but we also love choice, so over the Christmas period we’ll be offering a site-wide voucher on over 900 titles, grab it from the Hot Deals page, or copy it from right here:

GMG30-DPLIM-DN831

And, as usual, our 30% Voucher works even on titles with other price drops - for example, today’s Ridge Racer at 66% (EU Only)...



They do have an NA version of it but their retail for that is $50 right now vs Steam's $30

http://www.greenmang...r-unbounded-na/

Anyway, I might get it for myself as a consolation prize for the Hmm, I think I might get the Need For Speed at 75%...GOD DAMN IT, THE CHANGED THE SALE PERCENTAGE sale.

I bet it'll be part of a humble bundle.



That's just what I said about Mark of the Ninja when I finally decided not to buy it. And do you know why I feel pretty good about that choice? I said the same thing about Shank 2 when it was on sale last year after I'd just gotten a humble bundle with Shank 1 in it.

Guess what I got in my humble bundle this year...

Shank 2.

I can't wait to play Mark of the Ninja, but I can wait until it's in a humble bundle.

All that to say, I bet you're probably right. Still, $2.50 I won't regret that much. Plus, maybe they'll do me a solid and give me individual steam keys by then for each of the games. Wouldn't that be nice? Wouldn't it?

I don't think Klei has as much leeway with Mark as they did Shank. EA's partner program gives a bit more freedom than Microsoft does. If Microsoft were up for humble bundles we'd have probably seen the likes of Double Fine's Iron Brigade in one by now.

Doom Rails mistake sale for 74 cents ends in 2 1/2 hours.

This is the cheapest it has ever been and it probably will never go this cheap again since the sale seems to be coinciding with the Doom sales and in all likelihood was a mistake.

It's a fun little game and a bunch of us CAGers already have it and are planning a group play this Friday.

Last chance. 74 cents. LOWEST PRICE EVER. MISTAKE SALE. ;)
