I noticed that Battefield 2142 is on the EC, but it's still full price. While not as low as I expected from the preview list, Origin is selling it for $8.99 at the moment. I submitted a price match via the Amazon page, but if that doesn't go through I thought it was worth point out the sale at Origin, which lasts through tomorrow.

Amazon doesn't match publishers (Origin, Ubi Store, etc) so they won't do anything there but if they're not showing a sale price from the EC list it's worth letting them know anyway.

If you really want to scare yourselves, see how long your backlog is: http://steamplaytime.appspot.com/
 
"Target's Steam library would take approx. 9364.35 hours to complete.
That's 390.18 days!"
 "Progress: 9.11%"
Over 8500 hours to go...

 ​That's an even more ridiculous number than the $-value.  I'm not going to play the rubbish indie titles... or rubbish AAA titles.  Before indie bundles that could have been an interesting number.

 

Contrast this to console gamers who want to beat their new game quickly to maximize it's trade-in-value.  We're already picking up stuff good and cheap
 

I don't think anyone is taking the backlog/account value thing seriously.


Or time-to-beat. ;)

My account is independently certified as a $5,000+ value but I'm willing to let it go for only $4,000 because I know you CAGs enjoy your deals.  I'll be accepting briefcases full of cash throughout the day.

Only 20% off?

Yeah, mostly. I've bought one.

 

 

Well I usually check out most games to see how they look/run. It probably helps my numbers that I don't buy bundles.

y u not buy bundles

Briefcases?!  Are you wanting to be paid in $1 bills?

Ah crap I forgot to order Crysis 3 so I ended up missing out.

 

The current prices and sales are a little underwhelming if I must say :(

If that's all the will be (in the OP), then phew... That's bad. I should have grabbed Crysis 3 but I was waiting to see how it all shaped up. Sad I missed it... I wouldn't call any list that has Dead Space 3 or Sim City a "good" choice list. Or some editor needs fired.

Is that it? If so... :/

None of the games ever look good. I look at each bundle that comes up and have decided against each one except for that Meat Boy/Bit Trip Runner one. And I mostly bought that just to get in on the bundle buying craze.

 

I would buy a bundle if I wanted it, I just don't want any of them. Oh I bought the Alan Wake one too, to get American Nightmare.

As has been said a myriad of times in the thread, the deals will change throughout the month, with new ones getting added all the time. The list in the OP is just what Tony was able to get during the holidays, some publishers weren't able to reply early because they were out of the office.

This might sound dumb, but I'm disappointing that the list is ONLY PC games. Since I got my credits for buying PSN credit, don't you think they should realize that I am a PS gamer?

Looking forward to Brothers.  Luckily we'll (hopefully) know what Humble brings next before Brothers price flips.

I liked Dead Space 3 more than 2. Neither one captured the tension of the first one, but the second game seemed to overcompensate by making enemies so fast that there was never a moment when one wasn't latched onto your face requiring a button prompt. It's like they were going for "a different kind of scary" that was really just irritating. At least in the third game you could actually shoot the monsters instead of just spamming the boot.

I don't think it's dumb, I would think wherever you earn credits would allow you to spend those credits on the same kind of software.

 

If you don't have a gaming PC I would look into some less intensive games for the PC or maybe trade some games?

Yeah, that's another thing

When did that Nazi term start meaning gaming computers?

 

Who wants to be known as a Nazi? Well besides I guess a Nazi. Why would gamers take it?

On the fence about Bioshock, what's the lowest been so far? It seems like a good deal for 8.20 but I'm not sure if I should wait since I have plenty of games to play for a long time.

Next round of sales I would guess it would be in the 7.50 range

 

If you're going to play it now it's a good deal, you could potentially save 70 cents if you wait, which some here would day it's worth it to wait while others (like me) say ehhh, seventy shmenity
