Torchlight II at 25% off? Really? What's next, a flash sale the last day at 5% off?

I'm not falling for it. Last week it was Mission Runway. This is how people wind up hooked on heroin.



Oh yes you are. :lol:

Spoilers!

It shows 50% off for me, just like last time.

For me:
Torchlight 1 shows as 50% off
Torchlight 2 shows as 25% off

Says it's supposed to be 50%-75% off so must need to update properly.
EDIT: Now it updated for me. Still not buying.

Torchlight 2 is 50% off , the lowest it's been. Check how long a deal lasts before complaining.

Blur was also pulled from steam, wondering what Activision is doing.

In before Corpekata goes postal at people posting about deals before the price completely flipped. ;)

All this TSW talk is really tempting me.

Is it one of those games that tons of time needs to be dedicated to it to get something out of it?

Or can you play for several hours a week and get something out of it?


you can even play the game like a single player rpg if you wanted to.

You know, I thought Doom Rails was going to be an FPS. Doom, Railgun, it's not a major logic leap.

Thanks, though. I really appreciate it. Good man.

The Secret World is way too pricey for me. It sounds interesting, but this bard ain't getting the tips from drunken merchants that he used to.

That's why I bought it/how I plan to play it. Even though Idiotekque keeps nagging me to join his guild.

That money is gone, man. I had to buy another lambo to make a color coordinated pair, and you can't just buy a lambo and not buy an eastern european babe to doll up the passenger seat.

A-ehm... I did it on purpose, obviously, isn't there an achievement for it? :lol:

Anyway, I blame the Steam mobile app, since it's the only one I can check at the moment and it seems to update more slowly than the store itself (in fact it still shows the discount as 25% off) :)

One quick question for the 4-pack: if I buy it to gift extra copies to my friends, will it give me 4 distinct keys, put 3 copies in my inventory or ask for different e-mails to send direct links for activation?

I had to update the CAG game database to include Doom Rails. You can safely add it to your collections now. Yay.

Edit: And I can't believe Max Payne is only 800MB. I remember having to buy a three hundred dollar video card and a new tower case to play it on release.

What do you get when you win the regular season but choke in the playoffs?

Nothing.

Nuu-thing.

Where are the Xcom save files located? I think the new year did something odd because I can't find recent save though I'm sure it was there before. thanks.

I bought the 4-pack earlier. It will put one instance in your library and give you 3 giftable copies in your inventory.

I have yet to play the third one but I was hooked on the first two when they came out. One of my favorite series and didn't mind paying msrp for them back in the day. Different strokes for different folks I guess. ;)

Is there not a giant Shogun 2 Ultimate Edition with all of the various DLC's and expansions bundled together? I already own all of the other Total War stuff...

I don't get it though. It's a third person FPS? He's just... like a cop that is on the run right? Or is it the story that's so awesome? And does it hold up to the time test (could I start playing 1 today and not be fully aware the game is 10+ years old?)?

Nice.

I emailed a complaint about the coupon a few days into the winter sale. I didn't get a reply, but it seems they listened to complaints.

Too bad Steam removed my coupon for death rally :cry:

Cause it was cheap.
Has anyone even played it any?


And a little useless, but if anyone wants any of the vote discounts just post cause I feel like I'm wasting my vote by note voting.

My son has played Doom Rails and said he actually enjoyed it.

Not the infinitely more famous/popular SNL sketch he was referencing? OK, nerd.


Or he's young and has never seen that skit, but that video went viral recently. Hanz and Franz had their heyday over two decades ago.


Or the fact that the Governator said that.

:lol: @ he's young. If I was young, I be 6 or 7 when I first joined CAG.

It's a third person shooter. What interested me with the game was the story and how it was presented (that film noire style) and back then the "bullet-time" was pretty cool. It probably will not pass the test of time and the first game will probably seem comedic to someone used to modern games (the movements are pretty stiff, textures, character models, etc). I know I would enjoy playing them again for the nostalgia.

I love film noire too, not to mention hard-boiled detective stories. I remember playing Max Payne 1 & 2 when they first came out and was blown away. Great games. Heck, I still play MP1 on my Nexus 7 from time to time.
