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

"50% off Metro 2033? Oh, hell yeah!!"


metro 2033 is not really something i would have thought would ever be in a humble bundle, i paid $5 for it back in the steam summer sale, and it is totally worth it. if i could have had it for pennies, that would have been better.
"If it ain't fifty cents then I dont want it."

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.


The MSRP of Torchlight 2 has never dipped below $19.99. So 50% off would be $9.99.

It's TL1 that's $14.99.

Is there any reason to get the badge? Or is it just some random thing that shows up like the previous years' badges?

For the joy of badges.... but it does bug me the complete badge isn't more special... lame.

Thanks.. MSRP was $20 but frequently sold for $15... gotcha.

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?
.


Yep, you can gift / sell the extra copy. A nice CAG gave me his extra.

Backlog? What backlog?

Anyone have any opinions on Razor2: Hidden Skies? I'm putting together my final day list and it's sitting at 80% off for $2.00 but reviews aren't entirely kind to it. Anyone have an opinion on if it's worth two bucks or better to pass on it?

Only that it was in an IndieGala bundle at some point.

Fell victim of a shopping frenzy and finally bought a 4-pack Torchlight II, plus World of Goo, Droplitz and the Swords and Soldiers pack. Some of my friends are going to be happy tomorrow :)

Then I found time to finally get all achievements on Eversion... man, what a trip it has been! A really good platform, sent multiple chills down my spine, I'd like to hear something more from the developer...

Oh, and I love how screenshots uploaded on Steam can be marked as spoilers and appear as that in my screenshots page, but are comfortably shown unmasked in that little slideshow on my profile... :lol:

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.


Abyssal Forge ad Lord Demon Belial.


Thank you, both. When I get around to playing it. I'll remember to keep in mind that these two might give me problems.

It's terrible do not buy it, please.

Spent a few hours playing it a months ago, after gettign it fro man indie gala

Repetitive enemies and patterns, heck second boss looks the same as the first with more spam from it. pretty much boils down to emp(the bombish thing ) spamming as much as possible some times can last till you pick up another stack of 5.

crummy hitbox + instant death asteroids on one level didn't help..

one thing I did like is the 7th or so boss is basically a ring of parts rotating around you.

better options

sine mora
Only game picked up during this sale so far, its pretty system feels like it could have been a bit better done.

gundemonium collection, loved the third games system

Man, the last thing I won on Steamgifts was almost 3 months ago - and I've been entering giveaways daily. In fact, I've probably only hit 300 points about 5 times in the last three months. Oh well, such is statistics!

Ugh. Four-day party. Tried keeping up with thread. Given up.

Managed to talk myself out of a lot of games that, even with interest and marked down to 75% off, would just end up in the backlog for a while. I'll wait for future package deals with more recent sequels and the like.

Now to start figuring out in what ways to apply my Amazon $5 coupons.

For anyone just now joining us, I'll point out that I've written a Chrome extension for Steam that makes it a little easier to use.

Watch out saying that. Someone might feel compelled to rip you a new one over it. :roll:

Anyhow, I bought it from someone on the Gamersgate, ahem, 75% off 'sale' last week. I don't mind it on Origin so much for that price, but not for $25-$30 and certainly not for $50.

*ducks head* lol thx for the heads up.

I had it in my cart during the gamersgate fiasco but wasn't able to check out. (didn't even know it was a glitch at the time)

Just used my $5 credit on amazon for it and got it for $24.99.

I've become more of a turn-based strategy guy but hoping this gets me back into RTS.

Now should I buy the AoE III on steam lol? been resisting for a few days now but it's getting hard.

I hated AOEIII personally. (this coming from someone who LOVES AOEII, MOO, Civ, GalCivs, etc)

Edit: I guess I should qualify this statement a little better. I think the card deck thing was cool. They just didn't do anything that I felt wasn't done better in AOEII. Now, having said that, when it came out, I was deployed in the Gulf and had no patch support so I had the release disk and that was about it. But it was enough to stop me at the time. Then I'm pretty sure the wife sent me CivIV collectors edition and AOEIII was permanently shelved.

He sent me the code last night and I put it into a greasemonkey script

http://userscripts.o...pts/show/155389

Just install greasemonkey and then add the script and you're good to go.

Again, thanks a lot Jshackles! It's awesome.

Edit: Updated to version 0.3

Sounds as if u and I have similar tastes then. Maybe I'll wait then to clear out my backlog a lil bit.

Thank you and thank you jshackles!

Is this the latest version? Just curious as 0.3 was the last version I read about and this one is showing 0.1 in the manager.

It's probably not the newest one then. I got it pretty soon after he released it.
