wow
you should probably get in on 4-packs and get both
or chivalry i guess
do you want a multiplayer game that is different because it has melee combat or different because it is asymmetric?


No one is buying 4 packs, and I don't have enough $$$ to buy both.

It's using intellectual property that the creators don't have the rights to. Unequivocally no.


No doubt. Poor use of sarcasm on my part. :error:

Fuck yeah! (excitement, not greenlight)

...mind you I also enjoyed Arcana Heart.



I was thoroughly let down by Naughty Bear, so this title may fuel my childlike desire for destruction. Next we need a My Little Pony X Care Bears... 8-)

Everytime I see Anno 2070 I die a little inside. I can put up with uplay, but not tages.

i was extremely tempted to get it, but the 3 limit thing is out of the question. ive also read many reviews on metacritic about hot its not all that in depth or challenging once you get a few hours in

+3. I really want it but Tages with a 3 activation limit is just an absolute no unless it's $5 or less.

I did however buy the retail disc of Anno 1404 from Amazon recently. That game if you install the latest patch (retail only) on top of the game after you install but before you run it for the first time will deactivate the Tages and you can safely delete it.

I would have preferred to have it on Steam but for some reason that still makes no god damned sense to me Ubisoft refused to push an update to Steam for Dawn of Discovery (the NA title for Anno 1404) so Steam yanked it.

It's not even that. It's how much satisfaction and value you draw from owning the games, however many or few they may be. Some would say the pleasure you derive from playing them, but that's just crazy talk.


Can I use this as my sig? This is probably the funniest statement ever.

That's like four console games with tax.


I don't think that I've paid more than $30 on any single console game for at least 6 months and that's only because I didn't discover CAG until April.

Be my guest. :D

Last time I was buying console games at release was in 2011 when KMart gave you a coupon for nearly half as much off the next one, every time. Since that changed, I've gone back to waiting for later sales and price cuts. Actually, I think I only bought new PC and handheld releases for all of 2012. The only console games were ones that had been out a while.

That is why I wish that I had discovered CAG sooner.

I've bought several through BB and sold them back to BB after I beat them for a net lose of $0. As long as they keep doing these $20 pre-order bonuses I'll keep using them as a free rental service.

You can set a price watch for it at that Camelcamelcamel link above. For some reason it shows Amazon DD as a 3rd party but it should still work if you do the price watch on it.


For whatever reason, all digital goods (including MP3s) now appear to be showing up as "3rd party new" prices on camelcamelcamel. I usually set identical alerts up on both 1st and 3rd party new prices just in case.

Ever think those Steam sale glitches are on purpose for us die hards? I mean, Valve seems to routinely have their crap together. Maybe it's to keep people glued to their sale times... the more you sit in front of a Steam enabled device hitting F5, the more likely to buy?

I bought two copies of Sleepah Dawgs, one for me, one for a friend.

Still thinking of Chivalry... wish there was a demo!

Usually indie royale has one game that's I'm willing to pay for, like Analogue or To the moon, one random steam game, and and assorted random 2 others that I never actually play. But it has a nice presentation, and if the headliner is any good, I'll grab it, as it's similar to buying the main game on sale, but getting free extras too! so I'm interested.

though I have no idea what the replay bundle in kinda hinting at. repeats of old sales? Prince of persia? who knows?

I don't necessarily disagree. I've yet to buy one, myself. Only two I would have jumped on were ones where I already owned the 'premier' game. I don't have much hope for the new one but... who knows.

Ah thanks! I only played like two hours of Dishonored (wasn't in patient/steath mood). Despite some great recent additions to my library, I'm still at bit tempted by Hitman:Ab @ $20. That helps me get in touch with my inner CAG more. =)



I may have said it previously, but my memory is questionable. I believe the best way to enjoy Dishonored is to go for the less than 20% kills. If you kill less than 20% of the people in the level, both guards and infected, your chaos will remain low. That leaves room for a few "Oh shit! Throat stab!" moments and still gives you a reason to attempt stealth whenever possible. The only real bonus to no detection (outside of personal satisfaction) is the achievement, and if you're going to do that one, you might as well go for the Blink Only one as well. So unless you're achievement hunting, I seriously advise choking out as many people as you can, and throat stabbing the few that you can't.

(Also, never forget to use possession, I can't tell you how many non-lethals I got because I could possess a dude and walk him out of my way... or into the clutches of a waiting ally...)

My guess is the revival of an old bundle (hence the wishlist feature in your IR collection page) or a compilation of games they've had in previous bundles. Either way, I'm not expecting something completely new.

I'm pretty sure they will just rerun one of their past bundles. I hope it will be that one with Blackwell trilogy, because I missed it.

Ah, yeah. Rookie CAG mistake. Us vets know Steam is mainly for hording and using as a bargain hunting simulator. We're like dragons that way. We sit atop our massive horde of digital goods, constantly looking for new things to grow it, but to actually use it for anything other than looking pretty? Bah! Ridiculous!

Even the Steam mascots are amazed by today's ephemeral pricing error on Sleeping Dogs.


Hahah awesome!

Looks like everyone on my friends list got in on Sleeping Dogs and the DLC.


Same here :D

I'll probably get Hitman. Thanks for the advice!


Hitman: Absolution is pretty good, if you ask me.

I'm 20 hours into it or so.

But, let me warn fans - it is also NOT like previous Hitman games in many ways. If you are expecting Hitman 2: SA or Hitman: Blood Money, you're expecting the wrong kind of game. This game tries to be MORE than those. A LOT of new things here (missions are more mixed-up w/ some sandboxy and some linear types; a meter that you can fill by doing things that can give you skills like Mark & Execute like in SC: Conviction and see enemies through walls like Batman: AA + AC; leaderboard for your in-game score to be compared against your Steam Friends, The USA, and The World); and some things been removed (i.e. Notoriety system and earn money to upgrade equipment is gone in the SP Campaign; no globe-trotting around the globe here, since it's all in the USA).

At times, it IS A LOT like previous Hitman games (sandboxy missions w/ targets that you have numerous creative ways you kill them and you have to find your exit). Also, at times - it is NOT like Hitman games - i.e. it'll be much more linear and you basically need to just evade the cops or just exit the area.

The story, though - this is the best story I've seen in a Hitman game. Way more focused than ever before. And some of the characters are just awesome and great.
