    It's fun. And it feels like a schizophrenic dream.

    My wife wants the new sims 3 expansions that finally got released on Steam (Seasons, supernatural etc.) You guys think we'll see them on sale before xmas, or should I just tell her to understand her place in life and wait a year until they'll definitely be on sale?

    They were on sale the previous two winter sales I believe. I'm guessing the sale starts Dec. 18th

    Sorry to hear that =(

    It started off slow, but the "class-free" system really shines as you figured out synergies between specs you wouldn't think to pair together at first. The itemization and charm system were also good, IMO.

    Haast, no truer words have been spoken.

    TQ was, and still is, the pinnacle of action-rpgs. Grim Dawn, their next game, looks to keep the dream alive.

    The way IronLore went down is Shakespearean.

    If you already picked up the Humble Bundle earlier can you get Titan's Quest?

    You should be able to grab Titan's Quest and the other DLC they added by going to the original confirmation email and just clicking the link again, it adds it to your download page automatically.

    They key to a really great Titans Quest experience is to also buy the Immortal Throne pack. It adds a ton of stuff even to the base game like scrolls and artifacts, and most importantly Caravans in every major outpost which act as a bank/storage system that ALSO lets you transfer your good loot drops to another character. Why more RPGs don't do this, IDK, its an awesome feature.

    I had to create a humble bundle account and link it to my prior purchase but ti was easy as shit. Thanks for the infos +1. They also added DLC content for the Red Faction game which I got to add. This is bundle is phenomenal.

    I will say to those that didn't even click on the Humble Bundle link that it contains Saints Row 3 if you pay the average price, like five or six bucks. Saints Row 3 ALONE is worth that. You'll get between 10 and 200 hours of enjoyment from it.

    Titan Quest did Diablo better than Diablo, IMO. But yes, it did start off rather slow. Grim Dawn can't come out soon enough.

    That's right, they did have an expansion!! I bought TQ a long time ago, but didn't remember this.

    One question I do have though is that I remember having to install a bunch of player made tweaks and patches to get the game to run smooth because the original devs all got fired or went out of business or something? Is that necessary for this steam copy?

    The game ran perfectly fine on my system straight off of steam. YMMV of course.

    Halo 4 currently 39.99 on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/Halo-4-Xbox-36...tag=slicinc-20

    if you do something with Amazon and Facebook, you get $5 off a $25 purchase. This allegedly expires today but I don't have a facebook account.
    If you have an American Express card, you can sync it with your xbox live account and get a $25 statement credit after beating Halo 4 on Normal difficulty or higher. This expires at the end of December I think.

    so all told you could potentially have the game for 10 bucks...

    Despite claiming to be 50% on Thursday it looks like Green Man Gaming has moved the Chivalry sale up to today, that's twelve bucks and it stacks with the voucher so you can bring it down to nine and change.

    GameFly has several PC Digital Download Games on sale. Save an extra 20% with coupon code 1GFT1112.

    Prices after 20% off code:

    The Walking Dead $10
    XCOM: Enemy Unknown $20
    Crysis Maximum Edition $6
    The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition $12
    Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic $2
    The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut $4


    Only Walking Dead and XCOM activate on Steam, others I don't believe so. But those two are probably the ones people want the most anyway.

    Assassin's Creed 3 on Sale on Amazon $33, not earth shattering but maybe the cheapest you'll see it for the holidays.

    Just an fyi, there was a survey you could complete on Greenmangaming that gave you a 35% voucher (not a unique code, so people could share it, but the survey is short and easy). Originally it expired January 1st, now it expires December 14th and is posted on this page.

    Dunno, I want to buy it but I also want to wait till they add more.

    If they add more, does it get retroactively added to people that already bought it?

    I saw this and my hind brain kicked in and had already finished purchasing it before my fore brain and finished considering if it I should. And I already own Titan's Quest. If I had been thinking I would have gave the key away instead of using it and wasting it. Although anyone could get it with 6 bucks.... soo...


    Thinking about it I care nothing about the CoH series and I know nothing about Darksiders, Metro or Red Faction but Saint's Row and DoW look interesting and they have to easily be worth more then 6$.

    Damn you Steam, forcing me to pay for my games with these evil sales.

    I'm probably one of the few people who only own 1 game on that THQ humble bundle. Other than Titan Quest, all the games are new to me. Such an amazing steal for so much high quality gaming.

    MFer!! I thought it was like Gamefly's system and it let you enter your promo code after you went through your payment details.

    Charged my damn card before I could get my 35% off.

    I did this with Torchlight 2 as well... paid $20, and the very next day it went on sale for $10. I must love paying full price for games. FML.

    2 things that may explain it:

    1) They need capital quickly and software has a very little inherent cost, so almost all money generated is profit.
    2) A lot of the games had DLC or add-ons that are not part of the pack. They probably hope you like some of the games and buy additional content.

    A few more deals than that, at least in the european site:
    http://www.gamefly.co.uk/download-ga...kingid=cmju029

    Reckoning is pretty cheap, but I bet it requires origin.

    It does, but if you use steam origin is no different than it now with the last origin beta build.

    Oh wow those are some good deals. I've got Bioshock 1/2 and Spec Ops: The line on Xbox , but seriously considering getting it for the PC. Hmm..

    And Secret World for $15, and no sub? Can't hurt, right?

    Those sales are mixed. Some good ones in there, but lotta traps too. For example, Lego Harry Potter was on GMG for like $5 with the same % discount, just because amazon has a higher base value I guess. Nothing on the amazon sale for me currently actually, but there's going to be daily deals again too.

    Definitely going to snag that KoA complete pack for 12 bucks. Doesn't seem like it'll ever be that cheap on Steam.

    GOG is having an end of the world sale. GOG.com

    Thinking about picking up the Sierra Pack... all King's Quest, Police Quest, Space Quest + more games for $20.

    I don't think so. They make a big deal in the banner about how it's the, "End of the World DRM-Free Sale"

    Pay what you want for The Binding of Isaac (and its DLC, Wrath of the Lamb!), Closure, Shank 2, Snapshot, and the documentary feature film Indie Game: The Movie! If you choose to pay more than the average, you’ll also get Legend of Grimrock and Dungeon Defenders (with a ton of DLC)! This bundle also comes with many fantastic soundtracks in lossless (FLAC) and MP3!

    They're selling Arma2+Expansion for 15 bucks - http://www.gog.com/gamecard/arma_2_combined_operations

    I know some people have been interested in getting it for DayZ, but I don't believe it activates on Steam. They do mention activation codes, so maybe people get lucky.

    How good is Crusader's King II? I've played EU3, Victoria II, etc, and had great experience with both. Steam has it on sale at 75% off. Is it good?

    Anyone confirm? I already own Dungeon Defenders, Binding of Isaac, and Shank 2. But if I could gift away the extra copies, this bundle would be amazing.

    Edit: Fuck it. Bought one and yes, they are all separate keys. This is fantastic.

    Somewhat, but mostly they just do their own thing. A lot of their games activate on Steam anyway. I've found a good deal of what I wanted through them for ridiculously cheap.

    Steam Christmas sale (and probably the summer sale) has become something of an annual holiday. It's where the bulk of my games purchases comes every year. I bet at least a third, if not more of Valve's annual revenue comes from the holiday sale.

    The code is put directly into the game itself like an old school serial so it will let you connect online.

    GOG's whole schtick is that everything they sell is DRM free, you'll never get steam codes from anything you buy on there. Other than the downloader client, once installed you just run stuff from the game icon and off you go. If you want it in your steam list then you can add it as a third party game. If you are thinking about auto patching etc, 99% of what they sell is so old it won't be patched anymore anyway!

    Not impressed with today's deals. Many of the deals have been cheaper recently and in some cases are currently cheaper in other places.

    Nothing catching my eye today either as an impluse buy. That Indie Mega Pack is insane. THQ pack actually better than the humble bundle at $25? Depending on my budget I may gift a game or two on my friends list as I did last year, we'll see.

    Sort of disappointed this sale doesn't have any sort of gimmick to it. That was always one of my favorite things about Steam sales, going all the way back to the Treasure Hunt. It was a great way to encourage me to pull out some old games to revisit, and in all honesty, did get me to buy a few games I'd otherwise have missed. It was always something that set Steam apart when it came to sales, and you'd think that'd be something they would be continuing to strive for considering increasing competition from other digital game sellers. Voting for deals isn't terribly exciting, especially given how it works.

    I have way too much on my backlog as it is, but I figure, if there are good enough of deals, I won't mind adding a few more things. The way I've always figured it is, I'd rather have too much to play due to buying stuff really cheap than nothing to play and having to buy something at full price. It's my way of stocking up for the year.

    The amount of abuse that people put into Steam during the last Christmas sale (The one with the lumps of coal/chance to win free games) soured them on it and it seems that they are done with the 'meta' events, which is a shame.

    Unfortunately I already own the vast majority of the games I'd even consider playing, so this sale probably won't do much for me. Honestly the thing that would make me the happiest is yet another Orcs Must Die 2 booster pack/dlc/whatever you want to call it. I've played the fuck out of that game and need more!
