Do you happen to know which DLC causes it to crash?


The Abyssal Forge and Demon Lord Belial are the problem ones.

Abyssal Forge crashed about 10 times for me by the time I beat it, but it's so bad in Demon Lord that I couldn't even get out of the first room.
Hopefully they patch a fix for it soon.

Two of the DLC's crash very often for a lot of people. But since you have to select and play the DLC's separately from the main game, those crashes shouldn't happen to you when only playing the main game.


Thanks! If it doesn't hurt the main game I'll go ahead and redeem them then.

A quick aside: Abyssal Forge was included in the DLC Season pass *and* shows up in my inventory. Amazon goofed and this is a duplicate of the same material, right?

Abyssal Forge ad Lord Demon Belial.

i think it would be better to get the physical copy for a console version for the same price instead. i dont think the 25gb install is worth it


The install size doesn't bother me. I have plenty of space. I just wanted to know whether the game was worth it for the price. Been watching some reviews and it seems like it would be a good buy at 5 bucks

Nooo, I missed Doom Rails :(. Now I don't own Coconut Queen, Mission Runway and that one. My wishlist is growing.


Thanks Motoki, that was a pleasant surprise :D

Deadlight is overpriced until it's 66-75% off

Guessing SPAZ will be one of the upcoming dailies given it's presence as a flash. Oh joy.

Some part of me is curious about how many copies he purchased. Another part of me is a little afraid to find out the answer.

Wait... There's TWO Book of Unwritten Tales now?

Has the new one seen any significant discount?

Still gotta finish the first!

AFAIK I think the lowest I have seen is 50% around $10 so no not really but it's still really new so give it time.

So has anyone hit the 15 votes achievement yet?

I came into the sale late, so not sure I'm going to make it to 15....

You don't have to achieve all the conditions to get the badge (note the unlock date/time):

I actually have a question, in that regard - If I were to buy a game as a gift, would that activate both purchasing-related Achievements?

Did you discover this when you purchased Doom Rails, by any chance?

lol no I actually bought a $0.37 DLC, added it to my inventory, got the achievement, then added it to my library. The badge this time around was way lame I got it in about 2 minutes after the sale started. :bouncy:

I can confirm this works I did this. I have only bought 1 game from the steam sale bought it as a gift ended up adding it to my library afterwards.

Anyone recommend deadlight? Finding the visuals and gameplay nice but the price of $7 seems like still high!

Correct. I've had it on my wishlist for a while, but won't even think about it until <$5 at minimum.

Edit: It does look nice, though, doesn't it.

I bought some people some cheap stuff off their wishlists and between the double hit for "Buy an item on Sale" and "Gift an item" and the easy "10 item wishlist" and "Use mobile client" things, I had the badge on Day One. You only need 4/6 to get it and there's no bonus for hitting all six.

Just the warm feeling you get for voting for the games that are in the currently-available HIB and then watching CAGs carp about it...

Apparently it was so easy, I got 6/6 without even realizing it. I seriously don't know what the objectives were, outside of the obvious voting for community choice.

The last few days I've been casting my votes completely for laughs. That's what made it great when DOTA won.

Can someone tell me why Steam is saying 50% off TL2 but when I look it's $9.99? Per the Steam trackers I can find, they sell it regularly at $15 so telling me it's suddenly $20 to say 50% off... seems fishy.
