It's funny... for the past two weeks I kept looking at Dear Esther on Steam and kept saying "you can wait until its cheaper." Today I finally said "screw it, I'm gonna buy it for $10 anyways" only to see it went on sale.

You broke the #1 Steam rule: Don't buy anything unless it's on sale. :-(

With regard to finding the deals here, you basically skim the last couple of pages or so of this thread and if there's a deal someone is probably talking about it. People also tend to discuss deals for games from other sources that redeem on Steam like indie bundles, Amazon, Gamersgate etc which you'd miss if you just check Steam's page.

If you really want an at a glance listing of just deals on Steam games across the board from various sources (not just from Steam themselves) then Reddit Game Deals is probably a better place to look for that.

Spoiler



Totally agree with the first paragraph. Thanks I didn't know about the reddit thing, also lists console games....eew. My favorite at a glance sales listing is CheapShark, it's a script, not human input based, so don't solely rely on it, that said the script sometimes filters up interesting stuff that I haven't seem fleshbags mention. I tend to crosspost any particularly hot deals in the steam thread, for higher visibility.

I love collecting stuff. Welllll, except for the Assassin's Creed flags.



I liked flag collecting (in AC2/B/R). Collecting feathers in AC2 however was only for the pious (probably the same type who hunted down all 200 flying rats in GTA4), in AC:B they reduced it to 10 token feathers.

So I have a question. What is the best game on PC that is comparable to Gran Turismo 5? When I say comparable I mean cars of all different types and well races that are on racetracks and not just races on streets.

I been watching Top Gear lately and well I am in a I wanna play a real racing game mode :lol:. I will either get something on PC or just go for GT5 XL edition.



Check out GRID, I love it, tracks and some designated streets (not map-based), i.e. there is one track in San Francisco. I particularly love their rendition of Nürburgring and Istanbul Park. Great variety in car types from ricers, to muscle, to LMP-1&2. It has an enjoyable but challenging physics model that falls a little short of hardcore sim (e.g. Race 07 and assorted expansions) closest physics model is TDU2 with assists off. GRID (like Dirt) has like 7 difficulty levels, and three different damage effect levels iirc.

Edit: A little more forgiving than TDU2 with assists off, in the sense that you won't likely spin out, but it's got depth to to master to shave your time.

All I know is its some big update (obviously). Last time I even heard about 3.0 was back in 2011..... Anyone want to send me to a link to fill me in or anything?

Thanks for the input, ashes! I actually have GRID sitting in my backlog. Got it back in the winter sale with the coal giveaways and such. It was the only thing of value I won :lol:

FWIW, there's very minimal console stuff there. It's like 10% console and 90% PC, whereas here it's the reverse.

The do love Nuuvem there though :roll: so there's that.

Once in a while you may even see something from a key reseller although they tend to frown on that and may remove those.

The bulk of the stuff there though is Steam/Gamersgate/Greenmangaming/Gamestop/Gamefly/GetGamesGo/Amazon. Tony does post there as do reps from GMG, Gamefly and GGG.

It's all manually entered by a human so that's helpful. I won't say they catch 100% of deals but somebody somewhere will post most of them.

^_^ Grats! I kinda wish I had it on steam. I'm pretty sure I bought it on D2D, hmm maybe that's enough of an excuse the next time it hits 75% off.... :lol:

Aah, cool, 8-) I'll keep an eye on it. Yeah, there's a good reason I rarely stray from my subscribed PC threads on CAG, stands for Console Asshole Gamer right? =p :rofl:

Thanks for reminding me that I actually need to remember to download and install GRID - which I've had for quite a while and never-ever downloaded, installed, and played.

That comes with the Kill Hitler DLC. You have to buy the rest, but it usually cheap on Steam when it goes on sale.

Activating it gave me the Neudorf DLC, the Kill Hitler DLC, and an ambiguous "Rifle DLC".

I looked into it, since it's pretty poorly worded exactly what you get from it, and found something on the game's community website where a rep said:

Spoiler


So I'm thinking it gives everything but the recently released DLC, which is a great deal to me. It's less than what I'd pay for each individual item at 75% off, and Steam doesn't have a bundle deal currently, so I'm satisfied. ;)

CAG: a place to buy/sell/trade games the right way.

GMG ref link: $2 when you spend $2, instantly!

Hm. Does the 20% code work with this? It's tempting because I've been intrigued by that Kill Hitler DLC since it was announced.

Kill Hitler originally came with 2 rifles which were called separately as a different DLC pack. So you have the Kill Hitler pack and one more DLC level out of four (I think) total. That's not shabby.

Each DLC is one more single player level. Not huge but not a crumb. I've not been disappointed with any.

For the record, Kill Hitler is just one extra SP mission. The target could be anyone but in this case it is Hitler. He is definitely a tough target to take out as he has a lot of backup and actually moves quick from cover to cover.

Oh just FYI TrackMania² Stadium is in open beta on Steam. I played it for an hour last night and enjoyed it for what it is -- a little racer with really zany tracks and an extremely simple physics model. It was designed for keyboard. Stadium supports a controller LS-steer, LB-brake, Rb-gas, with analog steering but still binary gas/brake. (It feels similar to a free predecessor TM: Nations Forever, on steam.)

So I just got an email from Indiebundle.org about their new "Eat My Dust" bundle of racing games. The price is a little steep (for a bundle) and most of the games are Desura, which I know will turn some people off, but I like racing games so I think I may get it anyway.

http://indiebundle.org/racing-bundle/

For $5 you get:

Headlong Racing - DESURA/DRM FREE, Windows
Little Racers Street - DESURA/DRM FREE, Windows
Monster Minis Extreme Off-Road - DESURA/DRM FREE, Windows & Linux

at the $7+ level you also get:

Witcher 2: Enhanced Edition has been added to Onlive for $20.

It may seem like kind of a meh deal, but they are also giving a GOG DRM free downloadable copy with it. Might be nice for some people who say have a slower computer now but plan to upgrade at some point or even perhaps to try playing it on a Android tablet if you have a controller setup for it.

Onlive can be very YMMV in terms of connections but they do have an option to try it out first before you buy.
