Haha, I never knew there was a game in the Divinity series called "Divine Divinity." I hope this title was created tongue-in-cheek. Maybe Dishonored's sequel can be "Dishonorable Dishonor."

I have a friend looking for Torchlight 2, I think I'll recommend he wait for a daily deal in case it's a little cheaper.

Actually, I believe Divine Divinity (the first game in the series) is the best of all of them. The pack is a good price, but $2.99 for the first game is a steal. Unless of course you got it from GOG a few months back for $0.01.

Orcs Must Die! is a great series. Was a mistake playing it right after Borderlands, though—weren't there any other damned voice actors?!

Meh, that "Community's Choice" isn't a choice at all. Half-Life 2, Bioshock, and GTA:VC have all been on sale a bajillion times. I own them all. I imagine everyone owns them all.

So which one do I vote for?

Meh. I guess I'll just pick the one I think is the best game... Bioshock again...

It's been cheaper, unfortunately.

Orcs Must Die Franchise for 75% off seems to be one of the better deals so far.

HL2, BioShock, Vice City Community Vote Deals?? Really Valve??? Beating dead horses?

Kind of disappointed the Forge got the community vote, but bring on the new daily deals!



Yeah I mean there's one indie game that I know is good and another that looks interesting and yet the unwashed masses pick the generic MMO. Good one.

I have a friend looking for Torchlight 2, I think I'll recommend he wait for a daily deal in case it's a little cheaper.



It was that price for the Fall sale last month and it's a fairly recent game still. I think that price is the end of the line for now.

I don't think we'll see 75% off until 2013. Also I don't think the Flash deals generally tend to get undercut later with a daily. I think that's just the lowest it will go.

4 pack is not a bad idea though. Cuts another $2.50 off.

If Bioshock wins, I'll at least buy a copy for my girlfriend's laptop. I've already got three copies of Vice City, and two copies of Half-Life 2.

It has? I bought it when it was a daily during the last big sale and it was only 50% off then too.

I was disappointed and frustrated with Dishonored. I'm not saying it's a bad game, but I bought it for the stealth and coming off Hitman, the stealth in Dishonored sucks, I feel. I gave up and bought Far Cry 3, will go back to Dis. later.

I also didn't like that if you die it reloads the last save and you lose any side progress you may have made such as collecting items or ammo or whatever. A lot of games will reset the mission you're on but keep your collectible progress. I found this really frustrating, at least it allows quicksaves but I don't always remember to use them.



I haven't touched Hitman yet. I still need to finish Blood Money before I can allow myself to move onto Absolution.

The Stealth in Dishonored just comes down to Dark Vision and Blink for me. Dark Vision to spot them, Blink to reach them, choke out and hide the body. I more love it for the immersion of the world and the characters. Although I try to stealth, I'm not above grabbing my pistol and mowing people down when I get caught, so it just doesn't effect me as badly as it might bother someone going purely for stealth.

Also, I feel like Dishonored gives you opportunities to play intelligently or recklessly and still have success. If I was a more patient person, I could get through without killing anyone, but I'm not, so occasionally I have to knife someone in the throat, but I still find meaningful progression in the level.

Exactly - this community choice thing is retarded and only goes to expose the "heard" mentality. If Bioshock 1 goes 75% off, it'll be $4.99 - the same price you can pay right now on Amazon to have both Bioshock 1 and 2 as Steam redeemable codes.

How much is Devil May Cry 4 on the GMG US store? It's showing as £1.69 for me, or £1.18 with the coupon. That's ridiculous. I don't even want it and I'm buying it.

Pretty sure Gamefly had it for a little less.

Be sure to select the correct one as there is a mixed DRM version on Amazon as well. This is the Steam only version. They also have Bioshock 1/2 budled with Spec Ops and Duke Nukem in their own separate bundles.

I'll argue that it's more about putting possibilities in your head. I wasn't actively searching for Bioshock to be on sale, I already own it. It wasn't until Steam listed it as one of three options that I said, "Well, I can't use Vice City or Half-Life 2, but maybe Bioshock would be good for my girlfriend to play..."

I don't think it has been. Either way, Gamefly hasn't beaten the 4 pack price.. because there is no 4 pack on Gamefly.

If you join a group buy it'll end up being $7.50, which is better than any price Gamefly has ever had.

What are people's opinions on the Introversion Bundle and Dungeons of Dredmor? I started buying PC games earlier this year and wasn't around for the Humble Introversion Bundle, and figure these games won't get bundled again.

I liked Uplink and Defcon despite not being very good at either. Keep in mind, however, that they've been in a HiB a while back so you may be able to find a cheap key.

There's no way that Torchlight II will be 75% off. It's currently 25% off, and they never go from 25% to 75% on sales, usually flash/deal of the day stuff is double the base percent off only. I doubt you can even hope for a 66% off.

I was expecting 50% off, but - like I said - unless the discount is 75% or more off I won't be buying it.

Yep. When I saw hl2 up for voting, I thought...ooh! If that wins, I can get that to add to the pile of games I wanna give to my sister when she gets a gaming PC (which, hopefully, is soon).

$6.79, which comes out to 4.76 after voucher. GMG sure has been generous to their home country as of late.

What is the best any one has seen Dead Rising 2: Off the Record for? I'm hoping to get it for < $10 to play it coop with a buddy and was wondering if the current 50% off $15 is as low as it is likely to go?

The #1 rule of Steam sales: If it's not a daily/flash/community deal - wait 'till the last day to buy it.

I got it for $10 during the summer sale.
