I'd say get the CPU now.  These sales only come once or twice a year if that.  And I haven't checked, but doesn't Microcenter usually do bonus discounts when you bundle a MB with the CPU?

 

Anyway, you should get it.  You'll need the extra horsepower to run the latest bundled 2D retro indie games.

 

They do offer a discount when you buy a MB too...  Seem to be 30 bucks off or 20% (as it was a 149 and now its 119)

 

 

Anyhow, I got approval to order! :lol:

 

CPU and MB for 347 after tax...  That seems really insane.

Here is some BGCQ event news.  Only posting info on event here to insuring I'm raising awareness of my event(s).
 
Spoiler

I don't like having a sig, but for CAG, I figured I'd sheep along.

Thanks for the heads up on this deal.  I was planning on getting an i5 4670k + Asus Z87-A MB in the next couple of months anyways.  With this deal, I can get the same MB + an i7 4770k for the exact same price as what I'd have paid for the i5.  Pretty psyched... this is my first purchase toward my next computer (which incidentally will be my first ever build, wish me luck!).

 

Again, thanks for the heads up... I'm super happy about this deal, which I consider a pretty nice score.  :D

Another deal for you builders: Sapphire Radeon 7970 for $260 at Amazon (there's also an additional $20 MIR) as part of a gold box 'component' deal.  Some other stuff in there but nothing amazing jumps out.  They discounted their 4770k processors to $300.  <_<

 

Re: the card.  There will probably be other deals like it.  AMD seems keen on moving the 7970's now that 280x is out.  I've seen similar deals in recent days.

Yeah, video card prices are in the process of dropping...  So no need to stretch the budget for this deal.

 

Also, I've pretty much always been an ATI and AMD user myself...  And I'm actually going Intel and NVIDIA this time.  I'm not hugely into brand loyalty  but I don't normally change when I've had good luck with certain manufactures.

This is actually part of a storewide Bohemia sale with lots of Steamworks/Steam versions of products. Nice find, Carlmundo.

According to Reddit, this is on until 11/27.

 

Hm. I wonder why Take on Helicopters gives you a "non-Steam" warning when the BI store doesn't appear to sell a Steam version.

Actually just to add to this.  The arma X anniversary pack is not completely complete, its just supposed to be the first 10 years, as such its missing the ACR dlc for armaII.  The arma II complete pack does have that.  So I guess it depends if you want more of the full arma series or just arma II

It's $27.83 or 84. Season pass is $10.55.

 

Not sure if they round up or down.

The Army of the Czech Republic DLC you mentioned here appears to be the only one that's missing from X. It does also include soundtracks, avatars, artwork, et cetera if you're into that sort of thing, so that's worth bearing in mind as well.

 

Is it just me or did the MSRPs on the helicopters games drop dramatically? Is this a sign that Bohemia is in trouble after the legal woes in Greece and brutal reviews of Arma III?

Less than one day left for the Bundle-In-A-Box Indie Strategy Bundle if anyone was still thinking about picking it up. They've had a couple of $0.99 "happy hours" for the non-BTA level and they might do that again. I've heard some really good things about The Trouble With Robots but haven't had a chance to play it yet (of course).

For those that are wondering, if purchased individually, the BL2 GOTY content comes to about $21 vs $28 for the actual current GOTY version.  That is assuming GMG's 20% off voucher works on each item.  It won't include the "Premiere Club" content, but you won't miss it.

 

Edit: Check that, about $18 for it all individually.  On the main sale page the MSRP for the Season Pass is $39.95, but the item page (for NA at least) is showing $29.95, making it $7.9x after discount.


Sleed neep.

Can someone who did not buy the Humble WB Bundle and who does not already own FEAR try out the gift link found in my profile status (hover over my name to see the link)?  I sent the gift URL to someone who attempted to redeem the gift but already owned the game on Steam and I would like to know if the gift link will work for someone else since it did not get added to the gift recipients account.  Thanks and please let me know what happens!

I don't know as I haven't gifted before.  My account says "Give this link to your friend".  Does that change once the game has actually been redeemed on the recipient's Steam account?

Tiny Tina is the one must-have, for sure. Particularly if you're interested in the continuation of the main story.

 

If you ever do get around to playing it and find you enjoy the game, I'd also recommend the Torgue DLC. It's humorous, there are some good fights, has some invaluable vending machines, and there are also some good farmable mini/bosses. 

 

The other two are worth playing, provided you've enjoyed the rest. The stories are mostly unrelated to the main game (though Hammerlock does have a rather funny call-back once you've completed the main story).

I think so. This seems to suggest it. http://support.humbl...ting-steam-keys

I created a forum account a while back and the store said I couldn't use Foxhack again (the name is in use.) You have to create a store account via your dashboard first.
