#14312003 Steam+ Deals Mega Thread (All PC Gaming Deals)

Same face I make when the few lower elementary students I taught told me their favorite game to play is GTA V.

At best, they're incorrectly learning traffic laws.


I always obeyed traffic laws in GTA but I'm a bit of a rebel.

 "And all those games mentioned above wouldn't have been financial successes otherwise."
 
A few of those games aren't sony ips so their success has little to nothing to do with sony. ff is gonna sell moderately well because of brand recognition.  ff also hasn't been a console exclusive since the beginning of the ps2 gen. and persona atlus has been building up for the better part of a decade now and fills a niche in the genre as there aren't many games like it.  And with stuff like p4 moving to steam odds are that they will be moving p5 and p3 there as well eventually for more sales.

It makes me feel better than some of you aren't beating games either.  I'm currently working on Ys 8 and I don't know if I will end up finishing it or not. 

 

Spoiler
end rant.

I hope sony gets taken down a peg with the ps5 and goes back to the more generous sony they were 3-4 years ago.

Target.com has Code Vein and DQ Builders 2 for $14.99 each.

https://www.target.c...-4/-/A-52677065

I guess they were slow to price match amazon and bestbuy.

wow the order I made for the 50% off promo is arriving tomorrow.  That's incredibly fast for them.  And even weirder it's coming from maryland instead of the warehouse in texas which is where all my orders usually come from. Wonder if I will get lucky and the games will come in actual generic boxes this time.

Honestly I'm still happy with the current generation and it's 7 years old. I wish consoles were on a 10 year cycle, honestly.

I agree and miss the gens like the ps2 which seemed to last forever. now it seems like you get a new system every few years or an updated version of the system. How many iterations did they do of the 3ds? 9? original, xl, 2ds, galaxy, galaxy xl, new 3ds, new 3ds xl, new 2ds and new 2ds xl off the top of my head.

Guessing the warehouse retro never gets restocked... ? I have 2 GSs near me that have retro in glass cases, and I already raided them of stuff I wanted. 

 

Side note - where is a good place to buy replacement PlayStation double clear/black jewel cases? 

Cases wise I've found amazon ware house deals to be the best for getting them for old games that sells for pennies/1$ range  I picked up a few ps1 and ps2 titles just for the cases.  It was weird getting so many collectors editions of aerosmith guitar hero or whatever complete and sealed.

Summer clearance should be at final markdown now. That means toys and electronics should be hitting 70% - 90% off. Check your local stores. 

 

Can also find some other categories on clearance like linens, clothing, pool / sporting goods. 

 

Here are some random deals to give you an idea.

 

$0.10c Cool Gear 16oz Sip Boy Bottle (multiple of these bottles should be 10 cents)

$2.50 Disney/Pixar Toy Story 4 Mr. Potato Head Woody's Tater Roundup Figure

$5 Disney Princess Explore Your World Cinderella Large Toddler Doll

$5 Star Wars The Black Series The Mandalorian Collectible Action Figure

$15 Play Day Rectangular Inflatable Family Pool, 120" x 72" x 22"

$200 HP Slim 290-p0043w, Intel Celeron G4900, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD, Windows 10 Home (can order for store pickup)

$49 Acer Spin 1 , 11.6" Full HD Touch Notebook, Intel Pentium N4200, Intel HD Graphics, 4GB, 64GB HDD, SP111-32N-P6CV (Google Classroom Compatible)

$184 Epson Home Cinema HD 3,300 lumens color brightness (color light output) 3,300 lumens white brightness (white light output) HDMI built-in speakers 3LCD projector

pool is coming up 5$ in my neck of the woods.  But the only store that isn't limited stock is in south euclid and eww I don't want to go there.

This, for me, is the issue.  If a game is developed to be open world, a large chunk of the focus in development goes to creating the environment and sandbox gameplay.  As a result, creating quality characters, plots, and artwork almost always get neglected.  All of those things are more important to me than open world freedom.

That's how I felt about ff15 sort of.  I also feel like they had no excuse for why Iris, Aranea and Cor didn't travel with you for most of the game.  It's pretty obvious they can handle themselves in battle. And it's not as if they couldn't have made the car bigger.  I kinda enjoyed exploring and killing monsters in dungeons more than doing anything else in that disaster of a game.  Especially that awful sewer dungeon with 3 bosses in it. a giant snake, dragon and a black slime iirc. the middle didn't even make sense as it was in a tiny area.

I wasn't impressed by that pizza or the cutting technique.  Looked like school lunch pizza.  Which I love, but wouldn't be posting on my onlyfans.

That definitely didn't look like school lunch pizza.  Unless you are talking about when they got delivery? School lunch pizzas were always square with very little sauce and tiny cubes of pepperoni on them.  Barring that's changed since I was in school a long ass time ago.

I 3rd the pt.  It takes a while to get back to near 70% but it's worth it.

Screw it, I went for the Y's VIII on switch (used a $10 PUR coupon, which DID stack with CAG16 by the way).  Worst case, even if I get just the game it's going for at least $55 on ebay cart-only. 

Mine came complete so here's hoping yours does as well.
