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.

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

$5!

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

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 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 (ten years ago) link

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

I own a good chunk of this, but 100%-to-charity game bundles are my Proustian madeleines. Besides already being incredibly cheap at $40, it gets pro-rated down if you own pieces of it already, which you probably do. Ends tonight.

Man, imagine wasting my life playing through Legacy of Kain again. But in a good way!

Andrew Farrell, Sunday, 10 May 2020 09:04 (four months ago) link

Yeah that ended up at £20 for me because I already have everything I want from it. Bought it anyway. :-/

JimD, Sunday, 10 May 2020 11:12 (four months ago) link

I downloaded Legacy of Kain collection a couple of years back and realised that none of the 3d ones have built-in controller support, and the cameras for early 2000s games are way worse than you tend to remember. Watched some fun outtake footage of Simon Templeman and Tony Jay camply bantering between takes on Soul Reaver recently tho 🤘

Steam codes going if yous want any of these:

N8R2Y-D396C-0XY2H
Yakuza Kiwami

PNTX6-XVXM9-B0FZT
Middle Earth: Shadow of War

MWGI7-VVBLT-GZIHV
Street Fighter V

I took Yakuza.. thank you! I'm half way through Zero and that's my first one.

I just noticed this thread. I'm sure I have a bunch of codes on humblebundle.com I haven't used.. hopefully something decent. I'll post this evening.

thanks Andrew. Done!

maffew12, Sunday, 10 May 2020 19:11 (four months ago) link

Enjoy, all!

Tried the demo of Ghostrunner earlier (synthwave Mirror's Edge with Hotline Miami margin of error), seems like it has a lot of potential, but the Steam controller support was too much of a mess to get far with it

Other things I've dabbled with recently:
Got SpellForce 3 free with a games for NHS workers offer, a little janky but impressive that it combines warcraft and a party-based RPG so well

Iratus: Darkest Dungeon but you play as the bad guy and build a nasty monster team that inflicts psychological horrors on nervous peasant crossbowmen. Good crack so far

Mount and Blade 2: in a bit of a rough state still. Immediately got back into the same loop of pitifully missing people from horseback, chasing bandits halfway across the map and every NPC I talk to saying no, they haven't heard any rumours and they don't need any work done

Bundles been updated with a couple of hundred more titles. The list seems to be reordered as well. A lot of the bigger titles are on the first couple of pages now.

When I checked through the isthereanydeal wishlist sync, I think I had like eight indie games that were Steam wishlisted and happened to be in the bundle. Not a small feat considering how many I already do own from bundling.

Nhex, Thursday, 11 June 2020 00:04 (three months ago) link

As mentioned in the itch thread:
https://www.humblebundle.com/fight-for-racial-justice-bundle

Nhex, Tuesday, 16 June 2020 21:30 (three months ago) link

If there was also some way to sync my save file this would definitely mean me jumping from PS4 to PC (via GeForce Now, which I’m using loads at the moment).

JimD, Wednesday, 17 June 2020 09:33 (three months ago) link

(Huh, apparently that IS possible for Switch <> PC, surprisingly...but switch version owners are locked out of the free-pc copy offer. And cross save from PS4 is a no. Meanwhile GeForce Now supports The Witcher 3...but not the GoG version, which is the one this offer gives you. Foiled all round!)
