#14450313 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

Posted by dracula on 23 December 2021 - 01:40 AM

I've got a wishlist of around 500 games. Most have been on there forever, though I do occasionally remove some when I realize later that I really don't want them.

 

Using SteamDB to filter by wishlist:

 

-18/500 are at all-time lows. Of those, only seven are 75% off or greater.

 

-129/500 match their all-time lows.

 

Pretty disappointing. That makes about 30% of the games I've wishlisted that are really even in consideration. I'm probably just going to get a few that I really want to play soon and maybe a couple that are at their best price.

 

I remember when this thread would generate a dozen pages in a few minutes at the beginning of big Steam sales like this. Now it's just feels like a few times a year, games are regular price and the rest of the year they are inflated. No urgency, no surprise, and nothing really exciting. :-({|=

 

Hmm, I have 61 games on my wishlist, there are 2 I am considering buying but really they can wait for a future sale

 

mordhau for 12 bucks(60% off) and 

 

bloodstained 16 bucks(also 60% off).  But it seems like I can hold out a bit longer for under 10 bucks on both.  I may bite on mordhau anyways.

I generally like gamepass, I have put in a lot of time on games that I would not have bought otherwise.  Octopath traveler, 

 

I also tried games that I thought I might like such as Baldurs gate Dark alliance and been like "oh I'm so glad I didn't spend real money on this game" if the game sucks, you just uninstall and install something else.

 

My favorite game pass games: back 4 blood, wasteland 3, yakuza series, streets of rage, destroy all humans,

Fallen order is on game pass. I played a bit but got bored on the second or third planet when I could not figure out where I was supposed to walk next. The gameplay otherwise was fine or very good. But if there is no real obvious way to figure out where I’m supposed to walk then I get bored and I’m like “my backlog is looking at me I should shelve this game and hope for a better sequel “.

I’m starting to get some of my orders in the mail from b2g1 free, so far all of the switch games have a generic case, still a good deal though but I’ll probably just try to play through them all then trade them in or sell them

Did anyone really think there were getting a new Xbox for 10 bucks?

When exactly does b2g1 end? If I were to guess
I would assume today around 9pm PST online.

I wouldn't wait if you are borderline about to buy 3 games, they will likely be oos if you wait, if they are not oos already.

Off topic, I just realized final fantasy III got a remake and it's on steam(not on sale currently).  that is one of my favorite games of all time, do any of you like the 3d remake?  Is it pretty faithful to the original game?  Kefka was really good in the USA version, the reason why the american version of the game ff3 did so well was the localization(english translation).  In the japanese version, Kefka was a generic bad guy and the game was just considered pretty good.  In the usa, its amazing.  how is the 3d remake?

This Black Friday has been pretty terrible in general even outside of the video game/computer market.  Only deals I've really taken advantage of so far is ordering food for my mom's cat from Petco.

Gamestop was pretty solid to be fair  Although I can't believe I'm saying "gamestop" and "solid" in the same sentence

Damn I keep missing the cyberpunk controllers


I’d be very hesitant to buy any used controller

Fanatical.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire - Obsidian Edition -> Steam = $11.99

PoE II: Deadfire - Obsidian Edition includes:
- Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire (base-game)
- DLC Content Packs 1-3
(Beast of Winter DLC; Seeker, Slayer, Survivor DLC; & The Forgotten Sanctum DLC)
- Defiant Apparal
- Cosmo The Space Pig
- Digital P&P Guide
- Official Soundtrack
- Hi-Res Digital Map
- Digital GuideBook, Volume 2.


That’s pretty solid . I still haven’t finished pillars of eternity 1 but seeing as how it includes all of the dlc, that’s a very solid bang for the buck

I’m playing fire pro wrestling world, it’s a good game if you like wrestling , got the base game for 6$ and the dox pack for 20. It’s a long game though but good if you like wrestling

3 months of Xbox Gamepass is $14.99 at Costco.


That’s extremely solid, almost enough to get me to buy a Costco membership

Anyone know if GameStop price matches there own site from a day earlier? I ordered a tv yesterday and now today it comes with a gift card. I really don’t want to order another tv then return 1 to get the gift card. Thanks


I would think getting them to match any bf deal is neigh impossible even if it’s matching their own sale. I guess you could try emailing them? Don’t bother calling as you will be on hold for 6 hours

Honestly, if you don't need to be playing the newest thing there's not a big difference between Horizon 4 and Horizon 5.


They are both realistic looking driving games, they are on game pass for pc I think the biggest draw of horizon 5 is new courses? I didn’t play either game for more than an hour because there was no way to shoot at the other cars. I’d rather play gta but that isn’t forzas fault

Picked up fire pro world for six bucks and am looking at bloodstained for 16$ but my backlog is telling me that can wait

Xenoblade 2 is not in stock. Any first party switch games that came out recently that doesn’t get a price drop is a good buy for bogo switch games


#14356847 Is this a decent tv to use with ps4 pro

Ok I ended up buying this

https://www.samsung....-qn50q80tafxza/

Highly rated by rtings.com but will take a couple of weeks to ship, I’ll have to make due with my current setup for playing cyberpunk for the next couple of weeks
