Funstock Digital has the Metro Redux bundle for $7.84 (80% off) after coupon code JUL-SUMMERSALE-RED25.

 

Take advantage of that refund policy if you bought the Metro Redux bundle for $9.99 during the Steam Summer sale.

 

(Also for the Brazilian CAGs, Nuuvem has it for $5.28(!!) for their Winter Sale. Key is region locked.)

Anyone know of a good website that tracks pricing history on graphics cards?

PCPartPicker shows pricing history also (mostly Amazon and Newegg, but also Mwave, Dell, NCIX, etc.), but doesn't seem to have as much data as camelcamelcamel.  They also show the price trends for general video card models too.

 

edit: Neuro'd

 

 

Edit: PCPartPicker has a generic trend history based on relative model, but not specific brand/model.

 

If you browse by individual cards and click the model you want, they'll show its price history, but less popular models won't have as many data points.

Mildly related, has the g500/g500s line been discontinued?  Cheapest Amazon listing is $110 and it's not carried at Best Buy anymore, meaning i'll have to use my replacement planbux on something else.

 

Yea, the G500/G500s line was replaced by the G502 about a year ago, and the laser sensor was replaced with a newer optical one.   Despite the radical design, the ergonomics are surprisingly similar to the G500/500s.  As a long time G500 user, I can understand the hesitation, but overall reviews of the G502 are quite positive, so it might be worth considering.

Finally watched Star Wars original trilogy with my kids now got an itch for some KotOR...since Steam version has so many issues was going to buy the GOG version (heard it works great and then basically flawlessly with the widescreen fix).  Sucks it's not on sale and don't see any generic codes right now grrrr.

 

Bought it on my Android tablet and going to seek a refund because it runs like crap on that...

 

What issues have you heard of with the Steam version?  I've been playing since Christmas and haven't run into anything other than a few minor problems in the beginning (unable to move after battle) which turning V-Sync on solved.  I am using Flawless Widescreen and works fine, but it sometimes takes a bit of restarting both the game and application to get it to work correctly, but that is hardly KOTOR's problem.  There are a lot of the Steam discussions regarding black screen or crashing on start, but disabling the initial videos is usually the recommended fix.  For the black screen on startup, just alt-tabbing in and out fixes that for me.  I personally haven't had any crashes yet.

 

Only trouble I'm getting is carelessly overloading terminals and killing my dumb self, or turning in a main quest before a side quest and having the latter stuck in my quest log (GODDAMNIT), but that's just user error.

24 pages behind...doubt I missed anything.

Question for all you hoarders game collectors hoarders regarding your Steam client and categories.  I prefer(ed) keeping my games organized by genre due to it being easier to browse for a random title to play, but I've found that after 1K (after 50 really), I don't really browse my games. Am I fighting an uphill battle? Someone vindicate my sudden change of heart to break down the barriers of my game library and go back to a simple installed/not installed (or something like that) structure.  (FYI, I currently have about 40 genre categories.)

 

I stopped with categories because it felt like I was creating more work for myself.  Luckily with the tagging system in place, general game type tags are (usually) accurate, so I let other people categorize for me.  Since Enhanced Steam has some filters and highlights the games you own, it is easier to browse your own games through tags if you are looking for something semi-specific and see what fits the bill.

MysterD has the third highest post count in this thread. He is eclipsed only by myself and (inexplicably) talkinrock.

Carpe Fulgur apparently made their own holiday sale. Who says January is a lull?

And I see they're keeping this sale's 66% off theme.

 

Looks like they just increased it to 80% off the collection and 75% off the individual games for the weekend.
