Orange Box $15
Burnout Paradise $7.50
Killing Floor $5
Space Siege $5

Nhex, Monday, 28 December 2009 21:46 (twelve years ago) link

running out of stock at a digital store is just silly

abanana, Tuesday, 29 December 2009 00:43 (twelve years ago) link

think I'm going to pick up Orange Box - but that means I'll have to pick up half life too

=皿= (dyao), Tuesday, 29 December 2009 04:44 (twelve years ago) link

yeah they ran out of keys for prey lol

cozwn, Tuesday, 29 December 2009 15:38 (twelve years ago) link

Too bad they picked Mr. Robot today over Starscape, which I would've recommended. Other than that I'm not interested in much except Jade Empire at $3.75. (y/n)?

Nhex, Tuesday, 29 December 2009 18:33 (twelve years ago) link

steam again:
Civ 4 Complete (includes Colonization and 2 more expansion packs) $13.60
Left 4 Dead GOTY $7.50
Max Payne 1+2 $3.74
Osmos $2

abanana, Wednesday, 30 December 2009 17:47 (twelve years ago) link

The fact that Steam games cost the same # of units in both dollars and euros is silly. Despite this, I am tempted to buy Civ 4 Complete...played a game of Colonization, the 1994 original, last week, and loved it, and so I'd like to try the modernized version.

Euler, Wednesday, 30 December 2009 18:03 (twelve years ago) link

damn, that civ thing is tempting

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 30 December 2009 18:06 (twelve years ago) link

anybody know anything about osmos? 2 bucks is my impulse buy threshhold.

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 30 December 2009 18:15 (twelve years ago) link

ooooo, complete telltale for fifty bucks! all of monkey and sam and max and bone! VVVVV Tempting!

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 30 December 2009 18:16 (twelve years ago) link

i bought osmos a month or so ago when it was £2 or so. is very slight, like a well-polished flash game (move around absorbing things smaller than you, avoiding things bigger than you)

koogs, Wednesday, 30 December 2009 20:38 (twelve years ago) link

gonna give it a shot.

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 30 December 2009 23:42 (twelve years ago) link

daer video card, why u not shade 4 me

abanana, Wednesday, 30 December 2009 23:50 (twelve years ago) link

... and getting the civ 4 pack goddammit

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Wednesday, 30 December 2009 23:54 (twelve years ago) link

Tempted to get the Max Payne 2-pack. I never played the sequel, and for a buck extra why not i guess (though then again, thinking about it, i don't know if ever want to play MP1 again)

Nhex, Thursday, 31 December 2009 00:45 (twelve years ago) link

I never once played those games! Always wanted to. No PC tho :(

antexit, Thursday, 31 December 2009 01:27 (twelve years ago) link

max payne is sold out??

=皿= (dyao), Thursday, 31 December 2009 03:42 (twelve years ago) link

hmm max payne not showing up for me. wondering if it's some kind of licensing restriction for overseas buyers? shame :(

=皿= (dyao), Thursday, 31 December 2009 03:52 (twelve years ago) link

it is. there are people on neogaf trying to gift games to people in blocked regions.

Crysis + Crysis Warhead $13.59
Street Fighter IV $10
Medieval II: Total War $5
Shattered Horizon $5
Multiwinia + Darwinia $3
Half-Life: Source $2.49

abanana, Thursday, 31 December 2009 17:18 (twelve years ago) link

nothing for me today. i have half-life and multiwinia, and i can't run the others

abanana, Thursday, 31 December 2009 17:19 (twelve years ago) link

multiwinia and darwinia worth it?

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Thursday, 31 December 2009 17:22 (twelve years ago) link

I've never played much multiwinia/darwinia, but I've enjoyed what I've played. Note: there's an xbla version coming out in a few weeks(?) that will probably end up having more players (though will obviously cost more than $3)

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 31 December 2009 18:56 (twelve years ago) link

I was just watching some youtube videos of Shattered Horizon and that game looks pretty interesting (I'd never heard of it). A multiplayer only FPS in zero (and low?) gravity enviornments!?! has anybody here played it?

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 31 December 2009 23:31 (twelve years ago) link

$5!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JmnqR4yW5ZM

Jeff LeVine, Thursday, 31 December 2009 23:34 (twelve years ago) link

That looks pretty slick - i wonder how it plays. Too bad it's DX10 only (no-go for me as an XP dude)

Too bad Medieval ii didn't get a drop - i was thinking of skipping rome and just going straight to that, but since it's the same price as its been all week, i'll wait til the 3rd like a lot of other stuff i'm sitting on. Thinking about darwinia, but i'll probably pass unless somebody jumps up screaming about it

also, any of you holdouts should get SFIV, you punks, that is a crazy good price

Nhex, Thursday, 31 December 2009 23:48 (twelve years ago) link

But street fighter on a PC? Really?

JimD, Friday, 1 January 2010 12:19 (twelve years ago) link

Sam & Max Complete (telltale games only) $15
DOOM Pack Complete $13.59
Mass Effect $5
Portal $5
RedLynx Trials 2: Second Edition 2.49

abanana, Friday, 1 January 2010 17:11 (twelve years ago) link

xp as a PC gamer nowadays who doesn't have a pad of some sort? i have both the madcatz pad and a PS2 controller adapter setup

hmm... think i'm gonna have to finally bite on the sam and max games... i think i've waited long enough for this deal... but $15! that's more than i've paid for any game on steam

Nhex, Friday, 1 January 2010 20:15 (twelve years ago) link

Pad isn't the issue really, it's lag. Bmups on PC have never really worked out for me, just because they're SO timing sensitive (even more than FPS), and I just feel like you can never trust a PC to keep up, cos it's always got other stuff going on in the background. Though to be fair, I haven't tried one for maybe 10 years, and it's potentially something that just isn't an issue like it used to be.

JimD, Saturday, 2 January 2010 11:07 (twelve years ago) link

very tempted by Mass Effect for 3.75 euros but 12 gigs! and really I have three other rpgs on DS to play first (DQ 5, Suidoken Tierkreis, TWEWY) + I bought the Civ 4 Complete on sale the other night. Plus I have Medieval II to start sometime this spring also. And there is of course no time for any of this. But when I get back to my 360 in Sept. maybe I'll get Mass Effect for it---seems pretty cheap on it too.

Euler, Saturday, 2 January 2010 11:35 (twelve years ago) link

I have the total opposite attitude Jim! I mean, I played virtually every CPS2 release and half the Neogeo fighters emulated on PC, I really don't see a problem. Even SF3 runs pretty much perfectly now. Maybe you've been burned by bad ports from the '90s? The SFIV PC port is actually pretty well handled, performance-wise.

I've already bought enough stuff to last me through at least the first half of 2010... think i'll just wait until next year for Sam and Max. Still saving my gift purchases for Sunday...

Nhex, Saturday, 2 January 2010 15:22 (twelve years ago) link

Red Alert 3 $10.19
Painkiller pack $8.74
Trine $5
Morrowind GOTY $5
Counter-Strike: Source $5

abanana, Saturday, 2 January 2010 17:14 (twelve years ago) link

think trine is worth the five bucks? at this point i feel inundated with games!

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Saturday, 2 January 2010 18:53 (twelve years ago) link

final day of the steam sale - they brought back a bunch of the previous dailies

Defense Grid - $2.49
L4D2 - $33.49
GTA IV - $7.49
Torchlight - $4.99
Killing Floor - $4.99
STALKER Shadow of Chernobyl - $2.00
Bioshock - $4.99

once again giving the middle finger to those who bought Torchlight as a weekend deal for $10 a week ago

But there have been so many good deals that haven't even been highlighted on the dailies... so many to sift through right now for my final purchase and gifting. The Witcher is probably the last one I'm realy considering...

(not to mention the awesome GOG.com sale which I would totally be jumping on, but considering I no less than six games on backlog from that site alone, I've sworn it off until I can get some of that done. that sale ends today too!)

Nhex, Sunday, 3 January 2010 21:59 (twelve years ago) link

seriously though, get torchlight if you haven't already.

lazy cold meat and chocolate seasonal mentality (forksclovetofu), Monday, 4 January 2010 02:21 (twelve years ago) link

free money + free games def the way to do it

Nhex, Friday, 18 December 2020 14:18 (one year ago) link

Liking the GOG launcher that can bring all your other launcher games together in one list. Imported everything last night, seems to work well.

maf you one two (maffew12), Friday, 18 December 2020 14:21 (one year ago) link

possibly the full schedule

This got sent to me a few hours ago, I wasn't sure if it's real or not.

But now, as New 'n' Tasty leaked to come out today, this list is most likely true. Still take it as a grain of salt. I'll give you more info where it's from. pic.twitter.com/0vTNgMec3n

generally disappointing but tbh i've never played any of the free games

Nhex, Saturday, 19 December 2020 04:17 (one year ago) link

Looks like the list is right. I looked up all these games cuz I don't have a clue. An alarming amount of them are survival/loneliness sims. Interested to try "Night in the Woods"... which looks busier than the title suggests.

maf you one two (maffew12), Monday, 21 December 2020 22:53 (one year ago) link

alien isolation is free on epic today

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Monday, 21 December 2020 22:56 (one year ago) link

Night in the Woods was also in the big itch.io bundle for racial justice, if you bought that.

wasdnuos (abanana), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 01:36 (one year ago) link

I'm a huge first Alien movie nerd but even I thought Alien Isolation was a bit pants - should be called Android Isolation amirite?

Two Meter Peter (Ste), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 09:04 (one year ago) link

I never played it but I've heard some people say positive things about it. It certainly has a great look.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 19:24 (one year ago) link

steam sale even lamer than usual, most stuff in my wishlist is 10-30% off and they're not even doing the $5 token thing any more. bah humbug.

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Tuesday, 22 December 2020 19:48 (one year ago) link

odd there's nothing to compete with Epic's endless $10 coupons? They both must've had a great year

Definitely solid, but I already own 22/27 of the titles from older bundles

NBA 2K21 is free on Epic at the moment.

reggae mike love (polyphonic), Friday, 21 May 2021 00:53 (one year ago) link

they're doing the $10 never ending coupon thing again too... can get hades and outer wilds for $10, death stranding for $14, disco elysium and outer wilds for $20, RDR2 for $30

, Friday, 21 May 2021 01:15 (one year ago) link

I'm going to pull the trigger on actually buying something from the Epic Store... eventually... because of those coupons

Is Ultima 4 the best starting point? I played bits of these games but never got very far.

around $3 for the first 6, $1.5 for 7.

wasdnuos (abanana), Thursday, 10 June 2021 01:33 (one year ago) link

I'm not sure which is the best to start with, i'm only familiar with VI and VII but I want to try them all.

Sleeping dogs is $3…dang, may need to replay that one

Epic store has Obduction for free. If you liked Myst and Riven, it's by the same creators and it has a similar vibe.

Nhex, Tuesday, 21 December 2021 13:20 (nine months ago) link

all 3 of the nu-tomb raider games are free on epic today. i don't expect these are very good but might be worth trying at the low price of $0

ty will grab. have some combination of them on so many platforms already, what's one more

Nhex, Thursday, 30 December 2021 18:45 (nine months ago) link

hah, rise must've been an older freebie (the second one), already in my library

Nhex, Thursday, 30 December 2021 18:47 (nine months ago) link

I think I 100%’d all three of them. The plots are weak and things like the endless climbing get old fast but they’re so picturesque and my brain apparently never gets sick of that “ooh, secret passage!” feeling.

Dan I., Friday, 31 December 2021 14:30 (nine months ago) link

is there any exploration in the newer TRs or is it mainly running down a corridor?

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Friday, 31 December 2021 14:33 (nine months ago) link

They borrow heavily from Uncharted, so it’s pretty on rails at times. I think usually the first time you go through an area it’s fairly scripted, but then they open world it afterwards so side quests and stuff feel more free. Like, they give a good illusion of exploration.

Dan I., Friday, 31 December 2021 15:58 (nine months ago) link

The second at least* has a couple of big open areas (the size of four or five of the other levels) that you can wander around in - you have plot beacons that tell you where to go next so that frees the developers up to make it looser.

*can't remember the first, haven't played the third yet.
