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

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

running out of stock at a digital store is just silly

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

yeah they ran out of keys for prey lol

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

damn, that civ thing is tempting

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

gonna give it a shot.

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

daer video card, why u not shade 4 me

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

... and getting the civ 4 pack goddammit

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

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

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

max payne is sold out??

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

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

abanana, Thursday, 31 December 2009 04:04 (ten years ago) link

aw man that sucks. could someone gift me max payne 1+2? I can paypal you 5 bucks

=皿= (dyao), Thursday, 31 December 2009 04:17 (ten years ago) link

i can, shoot me a web mail with your email

bnw, Thursday, 31 December 2009 05:15 (ten years ago) link

thanks man! email sent

=皿= (dyao), Thursday, 31 December 2009 05:34 (ten years ago) link

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 (ten 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 (ten years ago) link

multiwinia and darwinia worth it?

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


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

But street fighter on a PC? Really?

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

been trying this year not to add to the infinite backlog, but i kinda like that Unity bundle and having a bunch of assets I will never, ever use as I have no idea how to program Unity

but Shadows of the Shogun and Torment look good, so fly away $15...

Nhex, Tuesday, 18 September 2018 09:24 (one year ago) link

I think Unity's pretty easy to learn! (at least, like, comparable to Unreal, I think?)

LootCrate started their own Humble Monthly Bundle competitor, LootPlay. Same idea - one title revealed, the remaining games are a mystery.

I think Unity's pretty easy to learn! (at least, like, comparable to Unreal, I think?)

very easy to get some basic stuff going but you need to know c# for collision/events etc

I knew Hyper Light Drifter was an inevitable inclusion - currently in tier 3 of this year's Day of the Devs bundle at a reasonable $12 (with Minit!)

Catherine just released on Steam, although it's "Catherine Classic" meaning it's prob the same game as on PS3 and 360, but Atlus is soon releasing an expanded one for PS4 (and PS Vita apparently?! Lol) so might just be worth waiting for that. Still, if it's a game yr interested in and yr on PC only, there you go!

Also apparently Ubi has jumped ship from Steam to Epic Games launcher/store thing?

suggest boban (Will M.), Thursday, 10 January 2019 17:04 (one year ago) link

i thought ubi already had their own launcher

ciderpress, Thursday, 10 January 2019 17:22 (one year ago) link

They do, but the install base probably sucks

Worth going up $5 to get CLANNAD from the current Humble Hot Date bundle?

Nhex, Tuesday, 9 April 2019 01:44 (nine months ago) link

Welp I forgot to buy that

Anyway, I was a big fan of One Finger Death Punch. The sequel came out a few days ago and was immediately bundled for less than the retail price.

Nhex, Wednesday, 17 April 2019 14:45 (nine months ago) link

Assassins Creed Unity free for the next week

Antonym Scalia (Leee), Monday, 11 November 2019 19:01 (two months ago) link

Nah, Steam event sales ain't what they used to be.
What I WOULD do is check the games on isthereanydeal and compare to their historical lows.

Nhex, Monday, 11 November 2019 21:44 (two months ago) link

All three Dark Souls games for PC with full add on content for about $50. if you've missed one or never done them, now's the time.

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Sunday, 17 November 2019 12:35 (two months ago) link

Steam autumn sale is up, probably the most interesting thing is that weird Steam controller which they are discontinuing and so now selling for £4/$5 plus shipping.

( X '____' )/ (zappi), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 23:02 (two months ago) link

there's a better than usual sale on google play (the android store) too. Lots of board games adaptations.

wasdnuos (abanana), Tuesday, 26 November 2019 23:26 (two months ago) link

already bought the weird Steam controller, i've always been curious how it feels. strange that they're killing it after just having released Index, though

Nhex, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 01:47 (two months ago) link

Portal 2 is 71p in the stream sale!

Might take a punt on Dead Space - lots of reports of problems on win10 but it's cheap enough to risk.

koogs, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 07:50 (two months ago) link

Dead Space is good

Anyone likes the awesome pixel art banner should check out the artist on insta:

calstars, Wednesday, 27 November 2019 23:29 (two months ago) link

I could never get the hang of the Steam controller, I even offered it for free to a friend who refused it. I guess I'll keep if for historic reasons now then.

picked up Tron 2.0 for a couple of quid, other than that nothing on my wishlist at any decent discount. Might have a browse tonight though.

I bought Persona 5 for $10.

wasdnuos (abanana), Monday, 2 December 2019 22:46 (one month ago) link

that's a great price for it -- i already own it or i'd jump at that

Mordy, Monday, 2 December 2019 22:55 (one month ago) link

is ark survival worth getting on ps4 for $17? i haven't played it on any platforms. castle crashers for $8.99 (might be a good game to play couch co-op with my kids?). is code vein worth $35 or wait until it's persona 5 priced? would i like monster hunter world ($15) haven't played any of them in the series. catherine: full body for $30? haven't played it in any version. detroit: become human for $10 (lol not for any price is my suspicion). v much appreciate any recommendations esp if u know anything about my taste but even if u don't

Mordy, Monday, 2 December 2019 23:00 (one month ago) link

castle crashers is a great co-op game. pretty old at this point, but i assume it's an hd remaster?

Fuck the NRA (ulysses), Tuesday, 14 January 2020 20:12 (one week ago) link

and another great one for a good cause; this amounts to an entire library for $25
