Title: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Compound on March 31, 2009, 08:29:34 AM
You know, I could have sworn that someone already started one of these, but I can't find it. Oh well.

To start this up, starting tomorrow (April 1st) Sony is dropping the price of the PS2 to $99. If you don't have a PS2 (or if you need a backup) this might be a good time to pick one up, as there might be one or two good games available for the system.

Nope, it's been $130 for quite a while now.

How much you want to bet the PS2 will continue to out sell the PS3?

The is week Target is having a buy 2 get 1 free sale on Wii games.

Yeah, considering my first couple broke... the third one is going strong though.
I expect the 360 has equally bloated sales numbers.

Heh, I wouldn't be surprised.  150 million is still pretty impressive, though.  I expect the Wii to sail past it though.

I have to admit that I rarely buy games new anymore. Usually I get them at my local GameStop or on Half.com. I also sell my old games online instead of trading them in. You get a lot more that way, even if you make sure you're the lowest priced, and someone gets a good deal. It's a win-win.

And it's not an April Fools Day joke? I may just have to get a back-up. I've had my old one for at least 6 years and it still works perfectly fine. I even bought a network adapter for it, though that hardly got used. I suppose it probably doesn't have much life left in it though, and since I joined the PS3 community late I missed out on BC, though I read it was never that great anyway. So unless Sony releases some kind of update that will let me play my PS2 games on it, a backup will be a wonderful thing to have.

You're right. The Target I went to the first night only had the sale sign up on the end cap with a bunch of junk games. The one I was at last night had signs everywhere.

I wonder what sales are like outside the Nintendo published stuff for the Wii.  I know Madworld didn't do that well for it.  People seem to buy Wii Fit, Mario Kart, Wii Sports and Wii Play and that's enough for them.

Every once in a blue moon they'll have those games for like $25 on amazon. I'll keep an eye peeled.

By the way:::  the Edge Card will get you 10 percent off any order at Gamestop. Why do you need an Edge Card, you ask... well Gamestop likes to do B2G1 about 4 or 5 times a year... take 10 percent which add to the sale gives you like 43 percent off total :)

Edge Card is also useful for selling games, wait for either a good sale or a good coupon (they send one every week via your email addy) then stack the 10 percent on top ... save up credit.

Yet another useful reason to have an Edge Card is to use it online at gamestop.com ... code SAVER gets you free shipping, code CAG16 gets you 16 percent off, and edge card gets you 10 percent off. So basically 26% off on all online orders with free shipping all year long. (Built up credit can also be used online.)

if you don't have an Egde card yet...  what the hell are you waiting for 8) Also it gets you a free subscription to Game Informer (and costs 15 dollars a year.)

I did that a couple of years ago, but didn't renew it when it came up again. I just don't buy or trade enough games in a year to make the $15 up front fee worth it. I did recently get an XBox Monthly subscription - mostly because of the demo discs that come with it. That way I get to play demos that aren't available on XBL and I save space on my hard drive.

Haha, fair enough Rude. But this is the Video Game Bargain Thread after all. Edge card has probably saved me a hundred dollars this year... basically your mileage may vary.

For the most part I only buy from Gamestop when they have B2G1 sales. The CAG16 code used to stack with the the B2G1 sale *reminisces* those were the days.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: MSTJedi on April 03, 2009, 08:06:15 PM

My local Target (And maybe yours!) has all their bargainware marked half-off. It says 2 for 1, but when they were ringing up my games, the first one rung up as 7.50 before the second one was scanned. So if you've been waiting for your chance to get Sid Meyer's Pirates!, or Civilization 3 Complete, or Sam and Max Season 1, or any number of popcap casual life-vampires, now's the time to strike. It doesn't get much better than $7.50. :^)

Hey! Do you like Xbox Live games but hate Microsoft points? Well, there's a way around that now! Amazon now sells XBL games in their store. Head over to here:

http://www.amazon.com/Xbox-Live/b?ie=UTF8&node=979417011

(I haven't tried it, but I imagine that you are emailed a code that can then be inputted in the XBL marketplace to allow the download.)

I've been thinking of picking up Killzone 2, and it was on sale. Of course it ended right before I woke up for work. Stupid 3rd shift.

Killzone 2 was only like $7 off.  If your local BB sends out 10% off coupons (mine does) you can buy it there for almost as cheap.

Oh man! I completely forgot that my aunt works at Best Buy! I could just use her employee discount. Oh great now the amount I spend on video games is going to go through the roof.

I feel like I should contribute something to this, but I don't really have any tips. Unless you're looking for a cheap copy of Little Big Planet. I found a seller that has a bunch of copies for $30 (mine was $26). They ship from England, so it may take a while to get it, but the shipping is free! And really, waiting 2 weeks( how long mine took) is worth it to save $30. So if anyone happens to want a link to the seller, either reply or send me a message.

From Major Nelson, Microsoft announces the 360 Game of the Year Bundle (http://majornelson.com/archive/2009/04/20/announcing-the-xbox-360-game-of-the-year-bundle.aspx)..

That's a 360 Elite (The 120 GB model) and two games bundled in: Halo 3 and Fable II. All for the regular Elite price. ($399)  The bundle should be out in May.

That's a pretty good deal there. I went with the Pro bundle when I got mine. Kung Fu Panda and LEGO Indiana Jones. Fun games, but no Halo or Fable - both of which I have yet to purchase because they're still holding their value.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Compound on April 22, 2009, 07:21:49 PM
Okay, this one's a bit odd. And pay attention Doc.

From Amazon:
Quote
Buy a digital 4000 Xbox LIVE points card before May 1, 2009 and you'll receive a $10 promotional credit to use in the Xbox LIVE Store. You can never have too many points, but if this one time 4000 points are too many, then pick up a digital 1600 points card and you'll receive a $5 promotional credit to use in the Xbox LIVE Store.

Limit one credit per household. Offer valid from 12:00 AM Pacific Time on 04/22/09 to 11:59 PM Pacific Time on 05/02/09. This offer may not be combined with other offers or promotional certificates. Purchase one of the qualifying digital products from the list below and within two business days you will receive an e-mail letting you know that a discount has been applied to your account, and you can return and use your credit in the Xbox LIVE Store.


Translation: Buy a points card through Amazon, and they'll toss in either a $10 game if you buy the 4000 pt card or a $5 game for the 1600 point card.  The $5 games are things like Doom, Undertow or Uno i.e. the 400 pt. games. The $10 games are pretty much everything except Castle Crashers and Penny Arcade Adventures.Or you can get a discount  for a game too. Just note, Amazon doesn't offer any DLC, just ppoints and full games.

Doc,  after buying the points, you may want to head over to the xbox live site and enter the code in there, just in case the code has a time limit on using it. That way, if your high speed gets delayed, you'll still have the points on your account.

This weekend only! Probably the best deal I' ve heard of for the year. The Orange Box download for PC for $9.99 on Steam. (http://store.steampowered.com/sub/469/) Even without the discount this set is the best band for your buck. Includes: Half-Life 2, HL2: Episode 1, HL2: Episode 2, HL2: Lost Coast, Portal, and Team Fortress

Woo hoo! After more than a year of hemming and hawing and watching the price go down, and temptations to buy Portal seperately Vs. paying another 20 for the package, I can finally make what I'm sure will be the best deal I'll ever have for this game package.

At long last, I'll be in on the cake jokes. :^)

I think it's supposed to be a Mon Calamari cruiser (yes, I'm a Star Wars nerd), but it does look more turd-like than spaceship-like.

So I went to Best Buy to grab some of those $10 games, I showed up 15 minutes after they opened, and already there was 4 other dudes cruising the PS3 isle.  They all had at least 3 games each, all with that beautiful little yellow sticker on them.  One kid had like 8 games.  But I'm really only looking for 4 in particular; Bourne Conspiracy, Lost Planet, Pure, Quantum of Solace.  None of them are there.  I don't even see spots for them.  The isle is pretty weak overall, not much of a selection.  One dude had Bourne, I ask where he found it, he said "right there, it was the only one."  I grumble something about them having 30 copies of Blitz The League II, and walk away.

There's another Best Buy on the other side of town, so I put the pedal to the metal and cruise over there, driving aggressively enough to make Jason Bourne proud.  I was pleasantly surprised to find out that this east side Best Buy has literally double the amount of games, and lo-and-behold, they have 3 out of the 4 of the games I'm looking for (they didn't have Pure).   An employee asks me if I was finding everything alright, and I ask him "did you know that your store owns the other one as far as games are concerned?"  He seems surprised, but not too interested, so I head up to the checkout, wearing my shit-eating grin that I've got some new video games for awhile.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Don W on April 26, 2009, 01:09:59 PM
Yeah, I went to my local Best Buy this morning and they had all of the $10 games in a bin, so you just had to root through that. I ended up getting three of the games that I was looking for.

Quantum of Solace (with a sweet 007 tshirt included)
WWE Smackdown vs Raw 2008
and Rock Revolution.

My Best Buy didn't have Pure either, and I was hoping I could have picked up Quake Wars too, but the sale applies to their online store as well so you can still get some of the games that way if you couldn't find it in store. They don't have Pure listed there though, but I ended up getting Quake Wars that way.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Destin on April 26, 2009, 02:50:56 PM
Most of the games listed my best buy had in stock. But unfortunetly for me, I saw the very last Devil May Cry4 and Pure taken from right infront of me. Oh wells, I still bought 5 games.

Ooh, if only my computer could handle L4D.

As for XBL Gold, I may use it to download a certain demo that's only been available to Gold members, but other than that . . . don't really care. Not even sure my bare bones DSL could handle online play.

Based on what I own:
Ratchet and Clank Future: Tools of Destruction- highly recommended for anyone with even the slightest interest in "platformers".
Resistance 1 or 2- my personal favorite shooters. R1 is a greatest hit, so if you're looking for cheap, I'd say go with this, assuming your brother isn't too young for that type of game
The Orange Box- despite all those reviews saying it is completely unplayable, and owning it on PC as well, I don't think the port is really that bad. It has to load a lot (and I mean A LOT), but they usually only take a few seconds. Recommended only if he doesn't own it on PC/XBox
Uncharted- came with system, still haven't played it. Hear great things though

I guess that's all the help I can offer, besides just suggesting gift cards for Playstation Network games

Speaking of bargains: Anyone know where to get a decent copy of Vampire The Masquerade: Bloodlines for a good price?  I just found out about this game and that there's a haunted house segment in it that's supposed to be really cool.  Unfortunately, copies on eBay look like they are Thai knock-off copies, and the ones selling on Amazon range to about 120 bucks for used.

Missed out on Call of Cthulhu: Dark Corners of the Earth this way, too.  Saw it in Best Buy for the PC and wanted to get it then, but missed out.  The copy I have now isn't a bootleg, but it's a European import, since you simply can't get a US version anymore unless you have an XBox.

Well, I was about to suggest Amazon, but it's ranging from $60 to $120 there as well. Ow.

If you don't mind not having a physical copy, probably your best bet will be to keep checking the pay download sites: www.gog.com, direct2drive W(hich has it)  steam (which has it too.), gamestop (Has it for download too), etc. Or check places like Office Depot or Sears who sometimes don't clear out their old stock very quickly.

And the haunted house area was indeed quite interesting. Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go find my copy...

The Collector's Edition of Fallout 3 for $47.99  (http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fredirect.html%3Flocation%3Dhttp%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2Fgp%2Fgoldbox%26token%3D3A0F170E7CEFE27BDC730D3D7344512BC1296B83%26pf%5Frd%5Fm%3DATVPDKIKX0DER%26pf%5Frd%5Fs%3Dcenter-1%26pf%5Frd%5Fr%3D1V60M6KVE3Y3RWKC4DW8%26pf%5Frd%5Ft%3D1401%26pf%5Frd%5Fp%3D365311601%26pf%5Frd%5Fi%3D1000199691&tag=cheapassgam08-20&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325) With lunchbox, bobblehead and all.

Two quick deals:

Over on Steam, Freedom Force and Freedom Force vs. The 3rd Reich are just $6.74 for the pair. These are great, great games that never got the attention they deserved.

And over on the PSN, they've been adding some old downloadable PS 1 games to their store. This week,  they've added a little game called Final Fantasy VII for $9.99. Since it normally sells on ebay for, well, a lot,  if you need a copy to play on your PS3 or PSP, this is a good time to get it.

Steam has a package deal on a series called Penumbra Collector Pack (http://store.steampowered.com/sub/1451/) for $5 this weekend. It includes Penumbra: Overture - Episode One, Penumbra: Black Plague Gold Edition, and Penumbra: Requiem all for $5. I bought it, hopefully the storyline makes up for what it lacks in graphics.

Here's a gamespot review of Penumbra: Overture -Episode One (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/penumbra/review.html) they rate it at a 7.8 out of 10.
Here's a review of Penumbra: Black Plague Gold Edition (http://www.gamespot.com/pc/action/penumbrablackplague/review.html?om_act=convert&om_clk=gssummary&tag=summary;read-review), it recieved 8.0 out of 10.

I'm eying that deal. If it plays like a point and click adventure, I'm buying. If it plays more like Resident Evil, maybe not. Lemme know how good the games are before I slap down my fiver. :^)

I played a little bit of it and it seems more point & click than Resident Evil-ish and it looks like this game is going to scare the hell out of me. Either way I think it looks like it's at least worth the $5.

Yeah, I'm on the fence.  Supposedly the game is worth getting for the great multiplayer, but when the sequel comes out in November, nobody's gonna be playing this one online anymore.

But I'm going to pick up GH: Metallica in a few hours though,as long as they put it less than $30.

I have a few friends who had CoD4 on both the Xbox and PS3, and according to them it's unbearable on the PS3 because almost everyone has either terrible mics or no mics at all causing a constant buzzing. So if you have both consoles it would definately be worth getting this particular game for the Xbox.

I got Bioshock & The Incredible Hulk for $14.99. (Bioshock is going to my buddy, I already played through it.)

LucasArts Continues Initiative to Revive Classic Gaming Titles



SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. July 6, 2009 Fans have asked and LucasArts has delivered! Today the company announced a new initiative in its effort to revive its classic and beloved franchises by making its games available for the first time ever as digital downloads online.

Scheduled for release are classic adventure titles like LOOM and The Dig and hit action games including Star Wars Battlefront II and Star Wars Republic Commando.



The complete list of games to be released on July 8 via Steam includes:



Armed and Dangerous
Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade: The Graphic Adventure
LEGO Indiana Jones: The Original Adventure
LOOM
Star Wars Battlefront II
Star Wars Republic Commando

Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Pak-Man on July 06, 2009, 10:43:28 PM
JOY!

Loom and the Dig are 2 of the only Lucasarts adventure classics I haven't tracked down yet. It'll also be nice to have a no-disc copy of the Indiana Jones adventures. Now all I need is Zak McKracken and the Alien Mindbenders and I'll be able to cement my position as hardcore adventure gamer. :^)

Blowing some dust off the thread here...

Hmm.  Something's going on at Activision. But whatever it is, it's good for us.

Buy a copy of Guitar Hero 5 and get a free copy of GH: Van Halen via mail. (http://gh5.guitarhero.com/preorder.php)

This seems to be valid at most major chains. Amazon and Gamestop already have the text on their websites and I imagine that others will follow suit shortly, since Activision is advertising a number of chains on their website.

And since I was planning on buying VH, but skipping GH5, this will probably change my plans as well.

You should try this game again.  You're only supposed to be out in the snow for about thirty seconds or so; once you're where you're supposed to be it becomes a kind-of-terrific survival horror/adventure hybrid.  The only thing wrong with it is the lousy stealth and combat mechanics.  I got a decent ways in before becoming sidetracked with other games, but I keep meaning to return to it.  The first one alone is more than worth the $5 you (and I) spent.

Save $20 on a PS3 headset when you order it along with Uncharted 2 from Best Buy. Seems to be online only, but just put Uncharted 2 and the Sony Bluetooth headset for PS3 in you cart to get $20 off the total price. Looks like a good deal, I'll probably be using it once I get paid.

Speaking of accessories, the Toys R Us sale has a buy 2 get 1 on accessories as well. Unfortunately mixing games with accessories is forbidden. Also, I tried to apply it too PSN cards and they didn't ring up as buy 2 get one :(

I'm pretty broke right now but will probably still grab a few wii accessories, some motion plus extenders, and a charge station.

This sale is killing me, want to get Tiger Woods 10, Dead Space Extraction, and Wii Sports Resort. Dammit, guess I'll just wait to get those in Christmas sales.

As most of you know there is a Buy2Get1 sale going on over at Best Buy...

as usual Amazon is "matching" its competitors with a sale somewhat similar. Actually a better sale IMO.

Get the game then install this (http://www.moddb.com/mods/stalker-complete-2009) and prepare to be amazed at the advancement in the graphics that look pretty good to begin with. I'd make sure to have a decent computer if you do buy this game though.

Okay, a heads up here.

Batman: Arkham Asylum (360/PS3)
Brutal Legend (360/PS3)
Dirt 2 (360/PS3)
Dragon Age (360/PS3)
Drawn to Life $19.99 (Wii)
Halo 3: ODST  (360)
Left 4 Dead 2 (360)
WWE Smackdown Vs Raw 2010 (PS3)

Dragon Age gets released this week, and Left 4 Dead 2 comes out on the 17th.  You may wish to keep the receipts to price match or delay your purchases until BF.

If you've had your eye on Telltale's Wallace and Gromit series, but haven't wanted to put down $35 for 4 Episodes, Telltale's celebrating the 20th anniversary of Wallace and Gromit by knocking the price down to $20 until the 8th. If that's too much to pay, they're also giving away a free episode. AND, if you've already bought your season pass, it's time to preorder your free collector's disc. :^)

And even more fun.

PopCap is offering a ginormous pack of games for $99.95 (http://www.popcap.com/promos/complete/?cid=nov_2009_143_m_3#). What do you get at that price. Every game Popcap has ever made, all 44 of them. Peggle, Peggle Nights, Bookworm, Bookworm Adventures, Feeding Frenzy, Plants vs. Zombies, Bejweled, Zuma, Chuzzle, Insaniquarium and more and more.

Yes, it's enough addictive games to occupy your free time FOREVER.

Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is $39.99 until noon at Ultimate Electronics. That's a mid to southwestern electronics chain, and the gaming stuff might be limited to the CO area.

So, the 5 of us in this area, his sale's for us, I guess.

Just got back from Gamestop where I picked up the free AC/DC Rock Band Track Pack with any Rock Band purchase (which, for me, was the Classic Rock track pack for $19.99)

I just got what I think is a fantastic deal. Playstation 3+Batman: Arkham Asylum+Infamous+The Dark Knight(Blu-Ray) at Wal-mart... all for $299.

Okay, one more.

The Microsoft Modern Warfare Bundle (http://store.microsoft.com/microsoft/Xbox-360-Modern-Warfare-2-Limited-Edition-Console/product/BFD23957)

Direct from Microsoft, you get an X-Box 360, with a 250 GB hard drive, a copy of Modern Warfare 2,  Assassin's Creed 2, Dragon Age Origins, two controllers, 3 months of XBL gold, and the snazzy black case. Also, you get $50 off the Beatles Bundle (making it  $109). All for $399.

That's a pretty damn impressive lineup of games there.

There's a strong, strong rumor right now that the first Rock Band (for PS3 and 360) will be on sale on Black Friday for $50.  The good news? That's $50 for the game and instruments. The bad news? It's at Walmart and BF at Walmart.... well, you know.

Our roommate was gonna get that for us for a Xmas present, but he was stuck working at Best Buy yesterday until 3PM. Ah well.

Our store had 50 . . . not sure why so few in the mom's case. Maybe that was just one console-worth. They had the games split among the 360, Wii, and PS3. If you got there after 2am or so (maybe earlier in some areas), you were probably SOL. My wife and I got there a little before 1am and were the 10th and 11th in line. Right before the store opened, they handed out bracelets for whatever console you wanted it for and then opened the doors at 3. Apparently not everyone read the fine print on the deal because there were plenty of people who didn't seem to realize that you needed a bracelet to get the game. We both got one - she got a Wii copy for a friend and I got the 360 for us. And as far as I know, my wife was the only employee crazy enough to wait in line.

Also, we went to the Wal-Mart in the tiny college town and got GTA IV for $10. We also got the $59 Tom Tom, and a few $2 DVDs (Die Hard, Young Frankenstein, and Blazing Saddles). So we made out pretty good this Black Friday.

Huh . . . that does suck if they only had 20 copies. Wonder why those stores got so few. The Tom Tom is a Christmas present for my wife, so we won't know what it's like until then. My wife is crazy about that kind of thing this time of year. If it's not food, it's a present, damn it. We were informed by a friend that it's a discontinued model, but as long as I can still update the map, for $59 who cares?

Okay, a bargain from toys r Us. Kinda.

From dec 4-6 ,  get a Xbox 360 Arcade for $99... when you buy other stuff too.

This other stuff includes:
* A gaming Ottoman ($49)
*An Energizer Battery recharger station. ($20)
*Either Need for Speed Shift or Dragon Age Origins ($60)
*One of these cheap games - Prince Caspian, PotC: At World's End, NHL 2k9 or Stranglehold
*Plus the arcade unit.

Total cost- $249.95

This basically boils down to "Buy an Arcade and Dragon Age and get some other free stuff" but some folks might greatly desire that gaming ottoman making it a good deal for them.

Well, it's a YMMV thing, but...

Old Navy had some copies of Lego Rock Band left over in their warehouses and some Old Navies are selling it for $19.99. In addition, it seems that many other Rock Band titles at Old Navy are $19.99 this weekend, including Rock Band 2, Rock Band Unplugged, and oh, yeah, Beatles Rock Band.

But this is very YMMV. Some stores are discounting Lego and Beatles, others aren't. Still others don't have them at all.

So, Target's web site has a coupon for a free1600 Microsoft Points card with the purchase of "Xbox Hardware" (their words, although they probably meant an XBox 360 system). Well, I already gots a 360. so I went and purchased a Guitar Hero World Tour band kit for $88 (a decent price, but not necessarily a great one); after scanning that, they scanned the MS points card, and then the coupon, and it totally worked!

BTW, some people have reported being able to do this with a clearance-priced 360 game as the first item; I have no proof of it, it's YMMV, and I can't openly endorse such a tactic.


In other Target news, they had Singstar: Queen for the PS2 for $7.48. I got that, went to Gamestop and got a brand-new 2-mic Singstar kit for $25, then came home to discover I don't know where the hell my PS2 connection cables went after the move.   :P

I already have the game for the 360 but this is tempting, especially when you add up the DLC on their own and it comes out to around $40. Maybe I'll wait and see if it pops up on one of the daily sales for a cheaper price.

The utterly fantastic Psychonauts available as part of "Midweek Madness" on Steam for a paltry $2.00.  If you haven't played it and are the sort of person who enjoys fun, get it.  IMMEDIATELY.

For the next couple of days, Steam is offering a big pack of Indie games, including Altitude, Bob Came in Pieces, Bullet Candy, Galcon Fusion, Gridrunner Revolution, Space Giraffe, and Super Laser Racer, for $10. Or you can buy them individually for $2.

I bought a big indie game pack from Steam last year and was totally happy with the purchase, so I'm going to stick my nose into the world of indie gaming again! Will these games challenge my conception of gaming, or will they all be twin stick shooters? Only time will tell. And then I'll tell. Probably over in the "I just bought" thread...

Hey, are you around an Ultimate Electronics? Well, tomorrow and tomorrow only this week Final Fantasy Xiii will be $49.99 (for either the PS3 or 360 version) there. It'll also be $52.99 at Frys, if you're close to one of those.

Two quick notes:

1) Through the end of the day, Major League Baseball 2K10   (http://www.gamestop.com/Catalog/ProductDetails.aspx?sku=640034&utm_source=specialnews&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=040410v1&affid=3002&affID=77777&sourceID=FKSJxY2VJAk-jnj7O1OFioG364lsmUjU9Q) is $2.99 at Gamestop. This is the PC download version only. Want a physical copy? $29.99. (And I'm pretty sure that it's US only.) It's a 7 Gig DL  BTW.

2) Now through April 10, buy Mass Effect 2 at Amazon and get Mass Effect 1 for free. (360 only)

Wow, pretty good deal considering Gamestop is selling ME1 for $30 now that ME2 is out and imports saves from the first game. Good thing I got mine back when it was $15.

Direct2Drive also has Tropico for 15 bucks this weekend. If you loved the original Tropico, you'll love this one. If you've never played it, it's Sim City, only instead of a bustling city full of sim-citizens, you're dictator of a bananna republic. Tropico 2 was kind of a misstep, but I love Tropico 3.

I hate to point this out, but Steam also has Tropico 3 on sale, but for $7.50.

The sales are the result of the recently released expansion pack for the game, BTW, just in case you were unaware of the XP.

Men of War for $7.50
Kings Bounty Armored princess for $15

Today's Steam Sega deals are:
Stormrise - $7.50

And at Direct2Drive: Prince of Persia: Sands of Time (http://www.direct2drive.com/17/product/Buy-Prince-of-Persia:-The-Sands-of-Time-Download) - $1 Yes, that's a single dollar. It's obviously a promo for the movie, but it's a great game especially at a buck. (North Americans only, BTW.)

(Prince of Persia also has some cool Lego sets now,, but that's not a Video Game.)

Be aware, if you buy Sands of Time for the $1, you won't have an option for gamepad play. Be prepared to play with keyboard and mouse. Not really  the optimal way to play...

Okay, Gamestop is doing their "Power Hour " thing again, where titles go on sale online for one hour and one hour only.

Quote
This week, you get to pick which Power Hour Deal we'll be offering on Friday! Vote on one of the three possible hour-long online-only deals below by participating in the poll. We'll announce the results tomorrow and the deal will go live Friday morning at 11am CT (no typos this time :-x ).

1:UFC 2010 ($23.99 - 360/PS3)
2:Red Dead Redemption ($23.99 - 360/PS3)
3:Pokemon HeartGold/SoulSilver ($15.99 each - DS)

This begins in roughly 15 minutes, and all signs point to RDR being the sale title. And for those who haven't played it, $24 is a very good price for it.

Telltale has teamed up with a couple other companies to release The Great Adventure Bundle.

$20 gets you The Whispered World, Jack Keane, The Kings Quest Collection, both (I think) Penny Arcade games, and if they sell enough bundles, they'll toss in Nelson Tethers: Puzzle Agent and Sam and Max season 2. All proceeds go to a charity of your choice (Out of 5 available charities), and it's tax-deductable.

$20 for Whispered World is worth it on its own. I've been waiting for that to come down from $30.

Quote
As most of you, Im sure, already know, the country of Japan was recently hit by a serious earthquake, followed by an even more devastating tsunami. We decided we wanted to do something to help. Our CEO, Akibo Shieh, had this to say:

    The thoughts and prayers of our staff are with the people of Japan. We have many friends, relatives, and business partners who have found themselves suddenly faced with a level of tragedy that most of us can scarcely imagine. The scale of destruction is immense, but we have no doubt that with a combined effort it can be reversed, and every contributionno matter the sizewill play an important part in doing so. We can all play a part in helping Japan overcome this crisis.
    With that in mind, we at Aksys Games would like to announce the following sale. It will run from today until March 24th, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to charity efforts in Japan. If you cant afford to buy anything, spread the word. Together, we can help.

I was looking at the first one, since it's only $11. I think I'll pass though.

Of course this led me to Amazon, where I found out that Bioshock 2 is only $10. I don't even think it's a special deal, I think it's just a $10 game now. How does that happen? I mean, it's cheaper than the original. Hell, it's cheaper than poorly reviewed games that came out when the PS3 was first out.  (http://www.amazon.com/Haze-Playstation-3/dp/B000SQ5LQE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1304107906&sr=8-1)

Okay, this is odd...

Are you a student? Are you buying a new Windows 7 PC? Well, Microsoft has a gift for you - a new Xbox 360.

Quote
REDMOND, Wash. — May 19, 2011 — Microsoft Corp. today announced a new offer for students who purchase a new Windows 7-based PC. Starting May 22, students buying a new Windows 7-based PC priced at $699 (U.S.) or more will also get a free Xbox 360 4GB console. Students will be able to choose from the wide range of stylish, powerful and innovative Windows 7-based PCs to find the one that’s right for them based on the features, color, size and price they want. The offer is available at participating retailers for current students in the U.S. while supplies last. Similar student-focused offers will be coming soon in Canada and France.

“A hot new Windows 7-based PC with a free Xbox 360 is the ultimate productivity, social and entertainment package for students,” said Kathleen Hall, general manager of Windows Marketing at Microsoft. “In one shot, with this great offer, Microsoft is giving students everything they need for a successful new school year.”

Today’s Windows 7-based PCs come in a wide variety of styles, sizes and colors, and many new PCs boast built-in Blu-ray drives, 3G connections and leading-edge technologies, such as 3-D displays and multitouch-capable screens. With more than 1 million devices and apps that work with a Windows 7-based PC, students’ smartphones, printers, digital music players and cameras will work with their PCs with ease right out of the box. With the addition of Microsoft Office 2010 for Home and Student with OneNote, students can create presentations for class, take and organize digital notes, manage group projects and assignments, and easily stay on top of class schedules. And with an Xbox 360, students can not only have fun gaming but also can enjoy a range of entertainment options, including streaming videos, sports, music and more.

To take advantage of this offer, students or parents must provide valid student identification as defined by the participating retailer. More information about this offer can be found at http://www.windows.com/freexbox.

Believe me, we're aware of that. The previous attempt at an X-Com FPS was part of the sale yesterday in fact. But turning X-Com into a FPS is like making Portal 3 into a Bejeweled clone. It's not really what the fans of the series are looking for.

Speaking of Best Buy, Alien vs. Predator for the PS3 is being sold there at clearance rates of $19.99 (or better...my store had it for $18).  I mention this not because the main game is amazing (it's decent at best), but because the online has REALLY dried up (not that there was much in the first place), and that's the portion I enjoyed the most.  There not much more joy in life than sneaking up behind somebody as the Alien and giving them the ol' "tail through the chest" trick.  The headbite is nice, too, but takes too long and other people can sneak up on you in the meantime.

To be fair, what I've read about the new X-Com game, it does sound pretty neat.  It carries all the research stuff over, and you have to pick between certain missions in order to level up your research or the skills of your men.  There's not been much heard from it lately though, so who knows what's going on with it.

Today's Steam deal includes Beat Hazard for $2.49. Go. Buy this!

Also, if you're about to bite on Civ V at its $24.99 sale price via Steam, Amazon has the download version on sale for $19.99 (http://www.amazon.com/Sid-Meiers-Civilization-V-Download/dp/B004774IPU/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1309900334&sr=8-2)

At Amazon Fatal Frame for the PS2- $19.99 (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/ASIN/B00005V9NH/ref=nosim/cheapassgam08-20) for a new copy.

How is this a deal? Used at Gamestop?  $29.99  (http://www.gamestop.com/ps2/games/fatal-frame-used/19803)

I'm guessing there's a reprint on the way here.

Fatal Frame, BTW, is one of the more unique horror games on the PS2 and Xbox.

Side note- apparently it's been that price at Amazon for, oh, three years. But it's still a good price for a great game. And it's still cheaper at Amazon than Gamestop.

My local Best Buy added a trade in desk to their store. Previously trade ins had to be brought to the customer service desk, the inconvience made trading in an unenviable chore ... however the new system works awesome. I traded in 30 games (in two trips) ... the only bad part is that the 'greeter' has to sticker every case before you bring games into the store.

One helpful tip is to check the prices online first, they are the same instore so it should be easy to decide which games to sell and which to keep. Also, they run weekly specials so sell when the 'bonus' is good. I got a 30 % bonus when I sold my games the other week.

The new AvP has been fun.  It has been worth exactly $5.00.  Would have been disappointed if I spent $50, and there's that psychological phenomena where you are more critical of things you get for free because you don't have to justify to yourself why you spent money on it in the first place.  So $5.00 is the perfect price.  Cheap enough to be worth it, and not free so I feel like I should keep playing to get my monies worth.

Sorry. Darklands was a RPG from Microprose in the early 90s set in Medieval Germany. It's one of the great unsung games in RPG history. (It also had some pretty nasty bugs which hopefully have been patched since 1992. Patching in those days was a bit cumbersome, due to the lack of the interwebz.)

I'm posting it here because the game is a few years old and I think it's going out of print. I've had great difficulty finding it in the past and it was more expensive. Amazon didn't even have it when I looked previously. Anyway, I've already raved about the game in various threads so I'll spare you my rabid fawning and just say it's worth every penny at this price and it's the best game in the DS's already-stellar game library.

Remember our frequent guest, the Humble Indie Bundle? Well, a cousin just appeared : The Indie Royale Bundle.
http://www.indieroyale.com/

There's no charity involved here, you're just buying games from the developers. Here's the current set:
    A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda | by Extend Interactive available on: windows, desura, steam
    Gemini Rue | by Wadjet Eye Games available on: windows, desura
    Sanctum | by Coffee Stain Studios available on: windows, steam
    Nimbus | by Noumenon Games available on: windows, desura, steam

BONUS DLC OFFER: For every 10,000 bundles sold, a single DLC for Sanctum will be made available in all bundles.

How this works is fairly simple. the bundle started at $2.00 and when enough people buy a bundle, it goes up in price. If you pay more than the minimum, the price will go down. Easy, huh? Right now, the deal started earlier today and the current price is $2.97. So, it pays to be an early adopter.

(And I really like Sanctum. It's a great game that I bought on Steam during their summer sale and it's a fun FPS/Tower game.)

There's a new Humble Indie Bundle out.  It began with an advanced order for the pixel shooter Voxatron in a "pay what you want" format, but they've just added two games: the pretty neat looking Blocks that Matter and The Binding of Isaac.  It's still pay what you want, though to get all of the games, you have to pay over the average, which is about $4.50 at the moment.

Because I'm rolling cash, I paid a whole $6 for the lot.  :)

Binding of Isaac is worth $6 itself, so I'd say that's a good deal. Wish they'd release it for iPhone but I can't really see that ever happening.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: mrbasehart on November 03, 2011, 08:05:36 PM
I've only played Binding of Isaac once, and I think I'll have to adapt the game to work on a gamepad - I just can't work the keys properly anymore (it's my secret shame that I play FPS games on PC with a pad too, now).  Blocks that Matter however, I've played a few hours of, neglecting Batman and Uncharted 3 in doing so.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Pak-Man on November 03, 2011, 11:26:47 PM
I got the deal and the games seem awesome, but my Xbox Controller reciever is out, so I have to use Keyboard and Mouse. I reccomend the bundle, though. Blocks that Matter is worth the price alone. Haven't dug into the Binding of Isaac yet.

Oh hell.

I'll be doing a BF list this year too, but Walmart's just rolled in:
A brief highlight:

$28 360/PS3 titles:
Batman: Arkham City
Battlefield 3
CoD: Black Ops
FIFA Soccer 12
Madden NFL 12
NASCAR 11
Transformers: Dark of the Moon

Yes, that's Arkham City and Battlefield 3, both less than a month old, on there.

Update- It looks like multiple places will have most of those titles in the just below $30 range, so if you want to avoid Walmart, you'll be able to do so.

And Good Old Games (Which now is officially just GoG) is selling one of my favorite RPGs Starflight 1 &2 (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/starflight_1_2)

Starflight was possible the first sci-fi  CRPG and I had a blast exploring the galaxy, blasting spemin and trying to determine what exactly happened to the Earth in the game. It was quite fun. It'll be, well, dated to you young-uns. (Graphically, these two games are from the mid to late 80s, so don't expect much in the graphics.)

The Starflight games were great... played the hell out of both of them with my buddy on his Tandy 1000 back in the day. In fact, a few years back... he was digging through stuff at his parents house and found his SF2 floppies. We proceeded to cobble together a working 386 using parts from our respective PC graveyards and played the whole way through... (Yes, we could have used a newer PC and something like DOSBox, but where is the fun in that?!) I don't want to give anything away, just that ending to SF2 is a tad anti-climatic... even by 8-bit standards... but getting to the ending was a lot of fun.

And just to further torment Basehart...

The Indie Royale  (http://www.indieroyale.com/)X-Mas bundle will arrive next week.  Details:

Quote
You can now blind pre-order Indie Royale's Xmas Bundle at a recommended $5+ USD contribution, and a minimum of $3.99 USD.

The titles to be offered will include an exclusive, specially remastered adventure game compilation debut (Steam for PC, Desura for PC, DRM-free PC download), an unlikely-themed multiplayer FPS (Steam for PC), a cult puzzle action game (Steam for PC and Mac, Desura for PC, DRM-free PC download), and an overlooked sim-action title (Desura for PC, DRM-free PC download).

Those who optionally pre-order now will get game access as soon as the bundle launches, lock in their price, and receive as a bonus Rush Coil's festive chiptune album '8-Bit Christmas', (http://rushcoil.bandcamp.com/) as featured on Adult Swim (this bonus is also available to those who pay enough to drop the price during the bundle.)

The Xmas Bundle will launch fully early next week at $2.99 USD and up - watch our Twitter feed or Facebook page for immediate notice at launch time.

And just to make Pak's comment seem silly, here are the actual titles:
The Blackwell Trilogy
Eets
Dino D-Day
The Oil blue

I've been wasting many hours the last few days on that game.  Never played it when it came out 10 years ago.  Have to smile at how a state of the art game that used to require a top end machine now looks like a game made with flash that you could play with a web browser.

And if anyone has been waiting for Heroes of Might and Magic 6 to go on sale - Well it isn't, exactly. The game by itself is still $50.

BUT the Heroes of Might and Magic Complete pack, which includes HOMM6, HOMM5 with all expansions, Clash of Heroes and Dark Messiah, is only $40. So you save $10 by accepting all the older Might and Magic games.

Typical Indie Royale bundle stuff. Name your price, only the lowest possible price is determined by how many people bid over the minimum.

Ninjabee happens to be one of my favorite indie developers. Outpost Kaloki and Kingdom for Keflings are worth the $3+ alone. Then you also get Band of Bugs, Cloning Clyde and Ancients of Ooga. I've never tried those. They probably rock too...

Far too lazy to look through the thread, but Humble Bundles have probably been mentioned, and they're a GREAT source for games. Not only do you get to name your price for 5 games, but you donate to charity as well. You can choose how your money is divided up between the charity and the developers, too. Periodically, they have REALLY good games in it. I got Trine in one a while back, but I lost it when I updated my computers, and even though you can redownload all of them, I lost access to the email account without realizing it. DAMN YOU, K-STATE!

I'm not sure if anyone will care but tomorrow (April 30) is the last chance to sign up for the 1 year subscription to World of Warcraft and gain the benefits of:
*A Free Flying Mount
*A Free Copy of Diablo III
*Entry into the Mists of Pandaria Beta
*12 Months of WoW-y Goodness

And free access to BC is included with all accounts too as well. (You pay month to month, not all at once. )

The latest Indie Royale bundle (The May Hurray! Bundle) is live and it comes with:

*Dungeon Defenders
*Containment: The Zombie Puzzler
*Data Jammers
*Brainpipe
*Strange Adventures in Infinite Space

And at a $7.00 donation, you get some chiptune albums as well.

Dungeon Defenders is great (although frequently on sale elsewhere) and I enjoyed Containment and SAIS as well. All come with a Desura key and all but the last title have Steam Keys too.

Okay, a new deal with a blast to the past.

Remember in years past when you'd walk into a store and see an offer like "get this computer/TV/Box of miniwheats for $200 off" with the caveat that you has to sign up for something for 2 years or so? Well, Microsoft is trying that again in their Microsoft Stores.

(http://img546.imageshack.us/img546/7011/kinect1.jpg)

So, $99 for a Kinect, a 360 arcade and 2 years of live @ $15 a month.  (Shrug) Up to you whether or not it's a good deal for you. (I paid $2 for my last month of Gold so YMMV.)
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: MSTJedi on May 08, 2012, 06:00:37 AM
Since They keep throwing 2 months for $2 at me, I think $15/month is a horrible deal. Not to mention, a 4GB HDD is useless to someone like me who installs games while I play them and downloads DLC and Arcade games. But for a casual gamer who doesn't want to shell out $300 - $400 out-of-pocket . . . no worse than doing rent-to-own.

You can always buy a hard drive. I just have no excuse for buying a console, as far as I can see. I'm not interested in paying to play games online, and I don't really have the friends to do multiplayer games in house. There are some games that are console exclusive that I really would like to play, but I dunno. I had an Xbox 360 a while back, but all I had was FFXIII, which I really enjoyed. The problem is that Steam exists. :P

Okay, Mass Effect 3 is on sale at the Microsoft store for $39.99. Free shipping too.

http://www.microsoftstore.com/store/msstore/html/pbPage.MassEffect3

The price will go down when you add it to the car. And yes, for some reason this is only for the 360 version. Go fig.

(Not posting this to the ME3 thread since I got side tracked and still haven't finished the game up yet. I gather though there's an issue with how it ends...)

Wow, this ending stuff must really be hurting sales . . .

Please read this review I wrote on Amazon before buying.  It has nothing to do with the ending or story and I know that I got the PC version but the people I have talked to who got the 360 and PS3 version have reported the same problems.  It is the most glitch filled game I have played in this console generation and even if the story was perfect I would have trouble giving it a good review.  What is more after two months none of these things have been patched.  Please take my advice and wait to find it for $10-$20 somewhere or for Bioware and EA to fix some of the stuff that is wrong with it before buying.  Believe me unfixed it is not worth more then $10-$20 and again this has nothing to do with the ending.

Oh and for those of you who don't want to go to Amazon here is my review in the spoilers.

Just take that into a count before buying.  You have no idea how painful that review was to write.

Price drop on the DSi Nintendo handhelds on the 20th:
The DSi line of handhelds is about to get cheaper. Starting May 20, Nintendo is dropping the MSRP of the DSi to $99.99 (from $150), and the DSi XL to $129.99 (from $170). Finally, the DSi XL will be cheaper than the 3DS – which launches in a new color the same day! (Midnight Purple, BTW.)

Got it! Been considering getting these on the 360 for a long time, but just never got around to it. Hopefully I'll be able to run them with my wimpy video card and not have to crank down the quality too much. I won't know for a couple days or so anyway, since my DSL is slow as Christmas. Oh, and since my wife had several $5 gift card codes, I actually got them for free, so that's good.

Okay, usually I'm not swayed by these indie bundles because they're always games I've never heard of. Almost *all* of these games are games I've heard of and/or played the demo to and was just waiting for the price to go down on XBL (except for Superbrothers - never heard of that one). The fact that I can set my price on all these is just too good to pass up. Downloading Bastion as I type . . .

That's a great deal.  It's a shame that I own most of those games, and I wouldn't play Amnesia if someone paid me. 

Bastion is amazing and one of the best games released last year.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Coragale on May 31, 2012, 06:56:28 PM
I'm annoyed with it, too. I bought Amnesia when it was on sale, and I already own Bastion. LIMBO might convince me to pick it up, however; I've been wanting it for a LONG time.

EDIT: I bought it anyway. Best dollar I've ever spent. The cause is great.

Braid is another one of those games that I've been watching on XBL to go down in price (when I had money) and I've heard a lot of good things about Super Meat Boy. Lone Survivor is a new one, but the more, the merrier. So glad I picked this one up.

Dammit, why do I have to be saddled with a shitty video card? There are several here that I'd love to get, but I'm having enough problems with my recent purchase of Bioshock, let alone how low I'd have to go to make Left 4 Dead 2, GTA IV, or Deus Ex work.

Yeah, apparently Sam's Club has really good deals sometimes. I got Dead Rising 2 (360) there for $18. Too bad I didn't like it (hated the time limit bullshit). But then I sold it on Half.com for $30, so I made some money off of it.  ;D

good deal! :D I remember that Sams also used to have Mario Kart for the wii for I think $42, and it's still going for $50 everywhere even though it's over 2 years old now... typical for a Nintendo flagship title of course.

Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Compound on June 19, 2012, 11:56:10 PM
Are Gamefly downloads worth doing or is is best just to wait until they are on sale on Steam?

Very painless to do. Sign up for an account. Buy on the Gamefly website. Download via a separate program which doesn't need to be running any other time except when you D/l. The service (which used to be Direct2drive) has been around since 2004 and has been one of Steam's biggest competitors until last year when GF bought them. And Gamefly is pretty big themselves. Unlimited downloads, the programs themselves use whatever DRM that they originally shipped with. About the only thing you'll be missing over Steam is the automatic inclusion in your games list, automatic patch updates (although most of these are already patched to the extent that they'll be patched) and Steam achieves.

Not a HUGE savings, but I feel like mentioning that Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis, AKA the best Indiana Jones games ever, AKA one of the best adventure games ever, is a mere $2.50 on Steam for the next 4.5 hours instead of the ususal $5.

Want the Lego Batman 2 Villains DLC but didn't preorder from Gamestop? Well, two ways to get it:

1) Go to Canada. Apparently all of their copies came with both the heroes and Villains DLC. Jerks.
2) Are you a member of Gamestop Power-up Rewards? You can buy them via the "New Items" tab (2nd page) for 2000 points, which IIRC, means that you've spent $20 at Gamestop.

Amazon has another PC Download sale sunning through the end of the month: Amazon Sale (http://www.amazon.com/gp/feature.html/?tag=cheapassgam08-20&docId=1000812791)

The obscenely good value Paradox bundle (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008G0ZVLE/ref=s9_al_ft_g367_ir011?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-4&pf_rd_r=1H5WN2G09GVNKVP3XEA7&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_p=1375147202&pf_rd_i=1000812791) is back as is a 2k Mega Pack (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B006OF19NM/ref=s9_al_ft_g367_ir04?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=center-4&pf_rd_r=1H5WN2G09GVNKVP3XEA7&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_p=1375147202&pf_rd_i=1000812791) with:
Bioshock 1 & 2, Borderlands GOTY, Civ City Rome, Duke Nukem Forever, Civ V GOTY, Civ IV Complete, Mafia II, Stronghold Collection all for $39.99

Yes, you might be able to buy all those titles on Steam for a lower price over a period of a few months, maybe,  but it's a heck of a value for that price.

 Oh, you are. Sorry. The acoustics in here are awful.

For the month of July, selected Guitar Hero and DJ hero DLC is half off.
DJ Hero – Dance Party Mix Pack – 320 MS Points
 DJ Hero 2 – Ultra Mix Pack – 320 MS Points
 Guitar Hero III: Legends of Rock – Velvet Revolver Pack – 250 MS Points
 Guitar Hero World Tour – Travis Barker Track Pack – 220 MS Points
 Guitar Hero 5 – The Rolling Stones Live Pack – 360 MS Points
 Guitar Hero: Warriors of Rock – My Chemical Romance Track Pack – 300 MS Points

Yeah, yeah. It's for the GH brand, but DJ Hero was pretty unique and some folks liked GH over RB, so here you go.

Fixed that for you.

And unless there's a surge in the next 12 minutes, SR3 is ahead by 4% of the vote, so it looks like Steelport wins over Gotham.

And, BTW, it looks like on the "vote for the next deal" thing, the sale prices are only good for the 8 hours after the vote ends, so keep that in mind too.

(And meh, the SR3 DLC is only 33% off. I suspect the Arkham DLC wouldn't have been at the 60% off price either. )

Terraria has stared at me with it's pretty retro graphics for too long! It's mine now!

What I'm really hoping for is for a significant savings on Anno 2070. I love the Anno series to death, and the future setting sounds extra cool to me, but it hasn't gone on sale or dropped in price even a little since it came out back in December. 30% is OK, but I sense a significant savings will arise during this sale. I'm biding my time for now...

Tyrant and I are playing together. I'm a huge Telltale fan, and I have to say it's some of Telltale's best writing.

It's not extremely puzzly. It's more about making tough decisions, and those decisions have major ramifications that directly affect what happens and how people react to you. Those decisions carry through to future episodes, too.  Like Mass Effect, but adventurey. I give it my endorsement. :^)

There's actually only 9 titles in there. There's just a gajillion expansion packs, especially for Magica. Personally though, I'd hold out for a collection that has Heart of Iron and Victoria in it. Both Amazon and Steam have had rather nice Paradox packs lately, for much less than $50.

For things that aren't heavily discounted already, wait for a daily sale.  It's always cheapest then, and you won't feel like an idiot when you could've saved a bunch of money if you'd have waited a couple of days.  Don't worry if you miss any particular game, as Steam usually puts them ALL on sale on the last day for just that reason.

Not to pile on, what with the Steam Summer Sale still in full swing, but I just picked up the Dungeons & Dragons Anthology for $13.98 at Best Buy.  I didn't even know it existed until I walked into the store.

I mention this not because it has the full Baldur's Gate series with expansion packs (it does), nor because it has the entire Icewind Dale series (it does), and definitely not because it has The Temple of Elemental Evil (it does, but who cares?)  I don't even mention it because all of the above have been updated to run properly on XP/Vista/7 (they have).

I mention it because it includes Planescape: Torment, the most fascinating (and most obscure) RPG I've ever played.

If you have even a passing interest in RPGs or BioWare/Black Isle, I highly recommend grabbing this while you can.  It would be a bargain at fifty clams, but they're selling it for a fistful of mussels.

Okay, if you're in the (free) Best Buy Gamer's Club, here's a heads up.

At some point fairly soon, you'll be able to log into your account at myrewardzone.com and grab a coupon for $35 off Skyward Sword.  It's on the Best Buy webpage right now over here (http://www.bestbuy.com/site/Games-Promotions/Video-Game-Toy-Sale/pcmcat8400050004.c?id=pcmcat8400050004&AID=10597222&PID=1312731&URL=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.bestbuy.com%2Fsite%2FGames-Promotions%2FVideo-Game-Toy-Sale%2Fpcmcat8400050004.c%3Fid%3Dpcmcat8400050004&ref=39&CJPID=1312731&loc=01) but it hasn't quite propagated to your Gamer's Club account yet.

So, yeah, give BB a little personal info and get Skyward Sword for $15.

Indieroyale bundle time!

http://www.indieroyale.com

This one gets you:

Hector: Badge of Carnage
Chime
The Adventures of Shuggy
Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! (With bonus game: The Witch's Yarn)
The Network

I can't speak for The Network or Shuggy, but Hector: Badge of Carnage is an awesome point-and-click adventure with beautiful graphics (If you can get past a very crude sense of humor). Chime is a pretty neat puzzler that's hard to explain but easy to learn. And I love Dangerous High School Girls in Trouble! It's a kind of RPG/Board game with quests set in a High School in the '20s. Worth the price of admission on its own.


Also, if you're still holding out on picking up any game in the Total War series, you can buy EVERY game in the Total War Series on Steam this weekend for a mere $31.98. The individual entries are all about $5 each too (Except Shogun and Fall of the Samurai which are both $22.).

Today's GOG release is SSI's Imperialism, one of the great lesser known strategy games out there. You control a nation in the early imperialistic era and build and expand from there. It also features one of the more brutal AIs out there, making the game a good challenge. Ignore the dated graphics, it's a heck of a game.

If indie bundles are too indie for you, here's the Humble THQ Bundle!

http://www.humblebundle.com

Pay what you want and get:

Darksiders
Metro 2033
Red Faction: Armageddon
Company of Heroes
Company of Heroes: Opposing Fronts
Company of Heroes: Tales of Valor

Pay more than the average and they throw in:

Saints Row: The Third

They also toss in the soundtracks for each game 'cuz they're cool like that.


I know some of these games are legendary, but I've never tried a single one of them. Maybe it's time to check out what the mainstream is up to...
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: MSTJedi on November 30, 2012, 08:40:39 AM
Woo! Got it yesterday for an obscenely low price. Over the average for SR3, of course. Hell, that's the only reason I want it. Wouldn't have even bothered if I didn't have a new video card on the way. My Radeon HD 5450 can barely run SWTOR, let alone something like Saints Row. I stopped playing Bioshock because I had to dial down the graphics so much, in fact. Hopefully the HD 6650 I'm getting will help things at least look halfway presentable.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: mrbasehart on November 30, 2012, 08:43:26 AM
Yeah, I got the bundle too, despite having beaten SR3 on the 360 and having no interest in either Darksiders of the Company of Heroes games.  I've heard Red Faction: Armageddon isn't too great either, but for £5 for all of them, and a chance to support THQ (screw the charities!) it seemed wholly worth it.

Oooooh. I got a good one for us MST3k fans.

Years ago, an adventure game called Darkstar was made that featured, well, almost all the non-Rifftrax members of MST3k. Trace, Mary Jo, Joel, Beez, etc. Well, it's been rather expensive until now, but Strategy First, who distributed it, has it on sale on their website for $6.95 (http://www.strategyfirst.com/games/2538-darkstar.html). Still not good enough? Enter the code "HAPPYHOLIDAYS" for 80% off a single product from their store, for a grand total of $1.39.

Want a physical copy? Go here (http://www.darkstarstore.com/store#!/~/product/category=450846&id=936394) to their store to get one for $7.95 plus shipping. And if you don't want to deal with the whole "game" thing, they sell a copy of Darkstar the Movie for $7.95 as well.

Sorry, got a little carried away with competition there.  I'd still say it was worth it due to the under $2.00 price tag.  I do like living in Manhattan for this very reason; I'm usually pretty close to the east side servers and I get a little bump in download speed and a nice low ping for online games.

Steam Holiday sale now live.

Whew, nothing I want yet.  I shouldn't spend any more money but it's so hard for me to resist a steam sale.

Yep, just snagged it myself and I can take the crappy download speed for less than $2 for a game I've wanted to play ever since it came out.

I'm having fun with it so far.  I've played a few adventure games before, not a ton but a few.  In my experience the key is figuring out how the game thinks.  Now that I've figured out what the game considers clickable and fair play (and not cheap and annoying as was my original assessment) I'm having some fun.  For example, whole control panels sometimes give you the "clickable" cursor no matter where you point, yet you're supposed to click on the tiny little lever you can barely make out at the top of the panel before you click on the panel, because you can't see the lever when you're zoomed in on the panel. Grrrr. Had quite a bit of frustrating trouble to begin with, but I've past that and now I'm making progress. 

The game crashes quite a lot.  It freezes a lot too, but still lets you save and reload while frozen, which fixes the problem.  This actually turns out to be a boon because it forces you to save more often which at least helps you not pull your hair out from the frequent crashing.  But it's an old game, I can't really complain. 

The graphics hold up well enough I'd say, but some of the design choices really date it.  You can only skip transitions sometimes, and when you can't it becomes mighty tedious watching the camera float around again.  But I'm having fun slowly uncovering the campy-but-interesting story as I wander around the ship grumpily looking at things.  Extended hibernation has apparently made me really disgruntled in addition to my amnesia.

What's really awesome about this one is that a donation of $8 or more also nets you the 8-bit Weapon collection, which is a complete collection of all the music 8-Bit Weapon (My favorite Chiptunes band) has composed.

I'm holding out hope that the new pre order rewards for Bioshock Infinite will net me a free copy of x-com if enough people pre order.  I'm pretty sure they will, despite the progress bar being incredibly vague and could mean whatever steam and irrational games want it to mean considering it's measured by the percentage of an unknown.   But Tomb Raider exceeded all three of its reward tiers, so I don't see why Bioshock wouldn't.

Wow.

From Gamefly's download division comes a bundle with Spec Ops: The Line and Darkness II for $4.49. And with the code GFDAPR20, this takes it down to $3.99.

For $2 each, these games are an absolute steal. Spec Ops was on many people's Top 10 games of 2012 (including Yahtzee, for example) and the Darkness II is okay.  You'll certainly get a few hours of gameplay from it.

All available at : Gamefly link (http://www.gamefly.com/Download-Spec-Ops-The-Line-and-The-Darkness-II-Bundle/5005652/?adtrackingid=cmju029)

No, that doesn't link to Rick Astley. Geez this day drives me nuts.

Interested in the upcoming Dead Island sequel, Dead Island Riptide (which arrives April 23rd)? Well, Amazon has a deal for you.

Buy the current Dead Island GOTY (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B008NAYASM/?tag=cheapassgam08-20) for $4.99 and within 2 days, you'll receive an $8 credit towards the purchase of the sequel. Plus you'll get some DLC for pre-ordering the sequel as well. So, spend $5 and get $8 in credit. Easy, huh?

Yes, both games activate on Steam.

And for what should be a surprise to no one, Sim City is now $32 on Gamefly.  But the fact that I can't get it on Steam, mixed with some less than awesome reviews by people whose opinions I trust, has left the almost 50% price cut less appealing than I thought it would be.  If it gets down to $15 or maybe $20 then I'm in.

Okay, until basically the end of the month, Amazon will be having a rather large PC download game sale.   Here's a very, very brief rundown

5/17-31: Sega games
5/23-30: EA Shooters , racers and more
5/25-31: Baldur's Gate enhanced
5/28: Tomb Raider/ Dead Island Riptide
5/28-31: Civ V/ X-Com
5/29-31: Square Enix/ Might & Magic/Rockstar
5/31: Battlefield/ EA/ Paradox

And from 5/16-31 over 1,000 other games and pieces of DLC will be on sale. Everything from Jigsaw World to Arkham City to Fable III. It's all over the place title-wise.

The Stone Prisoner, here I come!

(Personal) UDPDATE: Just saw that Kingdoms of Amalur is $20 on XBL games on demand. Which means that without an online pass, you get the full game for a lot less than the $40 it sells for used at GameStop.

For anyone who hasn't played The Walking Dead game from Telltale, now is the time to get it through the Humble Bundle Weekly Sale: http://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

Just pay more than the average (right now it's $4.11) and you'll unlock the game, as well as many others. Here's an article I wrote on it if anyone's concerned about a Walking Dead game. It's one of the finest video games I've ever played, and it truly moved me in a way that few movies, television shows or games do: http://evantvmoviegames.tumblr.com/post/40100793575/thewalkingdeadgame

It's a free Civ V weekend on Steam! For the 2 people here who don't own it, now's your chance to play it! (Saints Row 3 is also free this weekend too.)

In other news, Amazon just opened their Indie Games shop, with lots of deals and discounts on smaller titles and a number of games that aren't on Steam. But, since folks have an irrational belief that "all my games must be on Steam", here's the standout deal for you.  The Oh so Fine and Dandy (http://www.amazon.com/Oh-Fine-Dandy-Bundle-Download/dp/B00D2CZUFI/ref=br_lf_m_1001225021_1_4_ttl?ie=UTF8&s=videogames&pf_rd_p=1564066662&pf_rd_s=center-2&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_i=1001225021&pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_r=1HM8QTTS59G6RNF8F2A1) bundle for $9.99, which includes Costume Quest, The Cave, Psychonauts, Brutal Legend, Stacking, and Iron Brigade. Given that both Brutal Legend and The Cave cost more than that , you might want to jump on this deal.

Thanks for the game, but I don't know if I will be physically able to beat it.  It's fun, and the gameplay is quite addicting, but I am also quite close to puking.  The floaty, trippy visuals give me major motion sickness.  I'm only going to be able to play in short bursts, which contradicts the nature of addicting games.  You're right, the game is quite hard, and I don't think I'm going to be able to get past some of the later levels without having to mop off my keyboard a few times.

But I like it enough to keep trying... just in shorter stints next time.  One level at a time is about all I can stomach.

The Witcher 2 is $20.00 on steam this weekend.  Great game, one of my favorite RPGs.  And The Witcher 3 looks amazing, so this is a good way to get caught up on the rather in-depth story.  I'm actually readying the books that the games are based on right now.  They are quite good.

And here's something that's the exact opposite of a bargain that I also saw on steam: Planetary Annihilation is $90.00 on steam right now.  Why you ask?  Is it a collectors edition bundle that comes with all the DLC and a cool figurine?  Nope, pretty much the exact opposite.  The game is in the alpha stage right now.  You do get the soundtrack and some digital wallpapers though...

I mean I guess they want to keep the number of people in alpha to a minimum so they don't stress their servers too much, and charging $90 will definitely do that.  But I just question people who will pay $90 for something they have never played, which isn't even close to finished.

Two things: 1) The Witcher 2 is also $19.99 on GoG right now (http://www.gog.com/gamecard/the_witcher_2). Please buy it through there instead. Projekt Red will get more of that $20 that way as they run GoG. Otherwise you're giving Valve a chunk of money that should be going to the folks who made the game instead. You'll also get more extras, including the soundtrack, manual and a plethora of other stuff. The only thing that Steam is offering is a Steam Key. (I'll also note that looking at the Steam page, the game is $3.39 or $6.79 for something close to the GoG edition rather than the $20 above. If you want to buy it for the price, as $3.50 is pretty darn cheap, go ahead. But at least give a thought to buying it from GoG instead.)

2) As for PA, Yeah, it's $90 as the bid level for Alpha access on the Kickstarter was $90. Pretty simple. If someone paid $90 for alpha access last year and someone else was able to get in for a lower price now, those folks who paid the higher price would be rather massively annoyed, and with good reason. When it gets to beta, the price will likely drop to $40 (the bid level for beta access). I paid $20 for my copy, so I just get to wait until it's live and enjoy it then.

Amazon just refunded $0.04 of my purchase for The Last of Us. Which I'll need because we all know what is about to happen.

Amazon's  PC download division offers the Bioshock Triple Pack for $39.99 (http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DOD0TZG/ref=amb_link_378985842_1?pf_rd_m=ATVPDKIKX0DER&pf_rd_s=right-1&pf_rd_r=07N4XEECMKC1DM7JAEFF&pf_rd_t=1401&pf_rd_p=1578054602&pf_rd_i=1000716161) which gives you Bioshock 1, 2 and Infinite.

Oh, and there's a Firaxis Pack with Civ IV, V and X-Com for $19.99 as well.

(And Final fantasy VII is now available on Steam for the JRPG fans.)

Which I am tempted to buy, having not played the game in quite a long time and liking it as a kid.  What do you guys think, is it worth it for nostalgia?  I'm assuming I'm not going to be in love with the gameplay.  But I'm still very tempted....

They're advertising the game as having a way to level up stuff without grinding, so I'm guessing some sort of in-built cheats system to smooth over some of the gameplay's flaws.

About 20 hours left in the big sale at GOG.  A lot of bundles 75 to 80 percent off.

I might pick up the Sierra bundle (25 games for $25), might be fun to replay some of the old King's Quest games.  And play some of the others I didn't have the money for back then.  Can't believe the first King's Quest is almost 30 years old.  Ahh, the Commodore 64 days....

Just a reminder, always keep shopping around.

Steam is selling Tomb Raider for $12.49 for the next 2 days as part of the Steam sale. But Amazon is matching that price and is offering a 15% one time discount with the code "Gooncave" bringing the total to $10.62. That code works for any download, but is a one time use. (And all versions of Tomb Raider activate on Steam.)

The Humble Origin Bundle. At www.humblebundle.com

Normally, Humble is an indie bundle, but this time it's an EA bundle, with all the proceeds going to charity. It includes:

Dead Space
Burnout Paradise
Crysis 2
Mirror's Edge
Medal of Honor
Dead Space 3(!)

and beat the average (currently about $4.75) and get
A Sims 3 Starter Pack and
Battlefield 3

Steam keys are also present for all games other than the Sims, Battlefield and Dead Space 3. Or you could just activate them all on Origin and not worry about it.

Yeah, I've been taking advantage of these free XBL games since so far, other than The Walking Dead, they've all been titles I've meant to play, but never got around to. Still downloaded TWD anyway, since I figure I'll want to play it again eventually. Assassins Creed 2 was great and Crackdown is a blast, but I haven't beat it yet. I'm downloading DR2, but I'm not sure if I'll keep it on my hard drive or not. I bought it a while back, but couldn't get into it because of the time limits on everything. So I sold it online for more than I paid for it (I got a crazy deal on it) and came out ahead. I suppose I'll give it another shot for free, though.

It's only up for two more days but http://www.indiegala.com/ has all of Tripwire's best games. Red Orchestra 2 GOTY (with Rising Storm multiplayer), Red Orchestra: Osfront 41-45 and, my personal favorite, The Killing Floor with all DLC. All of these games are critically acclaimed and very active online. In order to get all the games you have to pay the minimum of $7.85. These are some of my favorite games ever made and the price is ridiculous, not to mention it's for a good cause. You can choose to have 100% of your purchase price to go to Able Gamers which is a charity dedicated to making video games accessible to handicapped children.

Well, this isn't a tremendous deal, but some folks might bite...

Best Buy, who recently changed their gamer's club program, are providing the following "Epic Gaming" bundles for the new consoles, each bundle at $800.

You get:
A next Gen console (PS4 or XB1)
An extra controller
Any two new games for either system
Two years of PSN or XBL
The new Gamer's Club unlocked membership (Short version- 20% off any new game purchase)
A 2 Year Geek Squad Protection program for the console.

Now, you're probably saying "Wow. That's kinda lame." Well, there's one more detail. According to internal BB memos, the folks who are interested in the bundle and who didn't pre-order, they get to jump to the front of the "didn't pre-order" line. So you'll have the best shot at getting one of the consoles.

There's not much to-do about it (Just a tiny sign near the Drive-Through), but if you eat at McDonalds, you get a code that you can enter at dpgamer.com and get $10 off any EA game $29.99 or more. They put the code on the back of your reciept and it looks like those ads on the back of every reciept that everyone always ignores. There may be other restrictions on what you can use it on. I haven't redeemed mine yet, but the big print indicates that anything over $29.99 is fair game.

I don't like EA: The Megacorporation, but I can't deny that EA knows which titles to support. Boycotting them would mean boycotting Bioware's awesome games (I LIKED Mass Effect 3, and I'm still loving Old Republic) and every game with "Sim" in the title, and I just couldn't do that. Even my li'l Android phone is monopolized by The Simpsons: Tapped Out these days. And I'll take EA's Simcity over the complete lack of Simcity that came out for the 9 years before it...

So I went ahead and used my McDonalds discount on the Cities of the Future expansion and I'm enjoying it, so far. It shouldn't be $30, but $20 is about the right price.

Yeah, Sim City is disappointing if you view it as Sim City. If you view it as Bob's City Builder, it's okay.

And if you bought Need for Speed Rivals when it came out on Tuesday, surprise! PC version for $30 and 360/PS3 for $39.99 at Best Buy. A $20 drop less than a week after release. (I bought a next gen version so I'm out of luck.)

Steam sale alert!  Not exactly a surprise but the Fall Steam sale just began, so go get them deals.  Nothing too exciting for me thus far, which is good as I don't have much to spend. 

Thinking about picking up Skyrim for 7.49 or maybe going for the "Legendary Edition" for 20.  I have Skyrim on PS3 but I want it for PC and I never got the DLC.

Yeah, the Legendary Edition has all the DLC.  I went ahead and picked that up.

I would think so but I don't know for sure.  It doesn't say "Legendary Edition" in my Steam library, so it seems like it's just the base game with the DLC added, rather than a separate thing.

I did notice after forgetting to turn on god mode a few times (after a reload) that I wasn't getting hurt as much as I expected.  But it's still nice to be able to ignore attacks and take it easy fighting back, and also be able fall off high places...  I have thought about using the codes to up my gold so I can buy a house.

Can't stand using the damn controller for FPS... it's like masturbating with both hands tied behind your back, sure you can do it... but it isn't nearly as enjoyable.

I made the mistake of clicking the HD texture DLC for Skyrim, so now I have to wait for another 4GB download before I can play it. The kicker is that I probably won't even be able to use them since I usually have to run everything at 720p to get any kind of performance on my PC.

I'd be surprised if that didn't go lower before the end. My rule for Steam sales is to never buy anything that's not a daily or flash deal until the last day of the sale. It's risk free because all of the passive discounts last until the end of the sale, so if it never goes on flash sale or daily sale you can still get it for that price.

Yea, that is good advice... but I'm off work for the next three days and the wife will be spending at least two of those shopping... So I'll probably be done with the thing before the end of the sale and will have picked up another title.

I'm debating getting that but I've already bought it twice for each console, not to mention two copies of Oblivion, Fallout 3, and New Vegas for a console and PC. Now that I think about it those bastards got me to buy everyone of their games twice since Oblivion. I was even considering buying that box set that came out recently. I guess Bethesda and Obsidian have a golden key to my wallet.

Oh, thank gawd I'm not the only one who did that! Same games, too.

Back when they came out, I just didn't have a PC that could run these games well, and well....I had an Xbox.

Now I have a gaming computer and I see them for sale and go "Hmmm, well...it's such a good deal....plus, I can mod it!"

Never DID finish Skyrim and I always kind of regretted not making an Argonian thief. So now I am.

Battlefield 4 was half off on origin. And Deadspace 3 was only $12. Games that I'm not super jazzed for, but interested enough to get them on sale. I enjoy the Deadspace universe and want to be able to say whether the last one ruined the series or was just mediocre.

So Dragon Age: Origins Ultimate Edition is $7.49 on Steam right now until Friday at 10am. While I've always been curious about the PC version and its mods and the DLC included with this that I didn't get for Xbox 360, I have to ask myself how much I'd really play it. Because even though I love that game to death, I've played it so much I don't know if there would be enough newness to really bring me back. I'm soooooo tempted, though.

Also, L.A. Noire is only $4.99. That's one that I've always thought about getting, but never got around to buying for one reason or another. Maybe I should just go for something new. Anyone played this and have any input?
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread

I'm in the same boat as you. Thought about getting L.A Noir, but need a little more persuasion.

I was also very close to picking up Black Flag, but I have a few other games to finish first and it's not like it will get any more expensive. People here recommend Black Flag though, right?

Also winter sale on GOG

Black Flag is pretty fun, the combat is super dull and easy but there is a ton of just fun stuff to do in the game. One thing that drives me crazy about Assassin Creed games is when they add an "artificial" difficulty to the game. An example would be making you have to follow and eves drop on a character for extremely long periods regularly getting detected for arbitrary reasons and having to re due the mission. I really wish they would just over haul the combat and stealth systems (which are basically unchanged since the first one) incorporating more depth and skill into the challenge.  The ship battles, whaling, exploration and graphics are amazing though, I would recommend it.

I considered LA Noire the last time Steam had a fire sale on it, think they were asking $8.99 or something like at one point over the summer. Then I read a bunch of stuff on how it's a crappy port and the PC version has inconsistent performance / crappy controls / not optimized at all... etc etc. Still might take a shot for $5...

Killing Floor and Rising Storm on the Weekly Humble Bundle, it also has both Zenoclash games, Dwarfs! and Rock of Ages (the only other one I kind of like). You could get Killing Floor for like a buck if you wanted to because it's below the $6 minimum price point.

The other is a site called Indie Kings, they track mostly indie game bundles hence the name Bundle Tracker, it's updated every day with great bundle deals. http://www.indiekings.com/p/bundle-tracker.html (http://www.indiekings.com/p/bundle-tracker.html)

Episode 1 of The Wolf Among Us is now free on Xbox 360. I've been exclusively playing games on my PC recently, but now I'm going to have to kick the kids off my Xbox. At least for the few hours it takes to go through this.

All of my annoyance! Tomb Raider's on sale for 10 bucks on Steam, and I have no cash in my account until Friday. >:(


Still noting from two posts above: Tomb Raider PC Download $4.99 at Amazon (http://www.amazon.com/Square-Enix-41017Tomb-Raider2-Download/dp/B007VFHGZ4/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1387939488&sr=8-3&keywords=tomb+raider)  DRM used is Steam, so you get a Steam code anyway. Prices are good through the 26th. (It's $7.99 at Gamestop right now too. Same deal. You get a Steam Code.)


And Aliens Colonial Marines is still $1.99 in this sale too. Come on. Two bucks.  You'll get two bucks of enjoyment out of it.

That's called "Being wrong." ;^)

Actually, I'm not as gaga over the N64 Zelda games as most people are. I have a harder time finding myself in 3D, which makes some of the puzzles a chore.

I LOVE Link to the Past on the SNES, though, and a direct follow-up excites me to no end. Got mine for Christmas today. Bouncing with excitement. :^)

I didn't know a better place to post this but I figured the right people would see it here. I just today learned about 'The Dark Mod' it's a free first person stealth game that mirrors Thief  made by modders that used the Doom 3 engine. It plays exactly like Thief but with modernized graphics and mechanics. There isn't an official campaign but tons of unique missions made by the community. While the mod has been around for a couple years it didn't get a finished stand alone release this year. If you want to try it go to http://www.thedarkmod.com/main/ and download it.

I'm pretty much indifferent to the Zelda stuff as well.... I played the first two games (or three?) that were released for NES / SNES when I was a kid... I liked them just fine, but they never really hit me as "OMG BEST EVAR!!" stuff like they did some friends of mine. I never owned a N64 / Gamecube / DS, so there was a big gap there when I didn't touch anything from the franchise and haven't since.

The latest Arkham game is 50% off ($25) on Steam. I got another 18 hours to mull it over... But I'll likely wait until summer, as I doubt I'll play it until then anyways and I'm sure it will go back on sale.

You should wait, not much new there. It's great, but it feels like an Arkham city expansion. You'll probably enjoy it more if you wait anyway.

I'm up to $5.00 from selling Steam winter sale trading cards I got from voting. I want to see how much 'free money' I can get and the best game I can get on the last day of the sale. The first card I sold I got a little less than a dollar but now the card value has been plummeting to about $.25, but I'm hoping to round out about $7.


Whew. Okay, I finished my final set of Steam winter cards today. I have zero of them left now. Yay.

From selling Steam cards during the sale I bought (some cards I sold during the sale not from the sale but mostly snow globe cards):

Payday the Heist ($1.99) + The Wolf Pack DLC ($.99)
Verdun Early Access ($3.99)
Super Hexagon ($.49)
Electronic Super Joy ($.75)

And I have $1.53 left over. Pretty good for free :highfive:

I fired it up for a bit yesterday and I'm having fun so far. Sailing ships promises to be fun, and these busy cities seem great for exploration. Perhaps I enjoy the setting a lot more in the game because It doesn't feel so tedious so far. Oh. But the framing first person sections I still want to end as soon as possible.

And now that I'm finally happy with my frame rate it's even better. Had to turn AA all the way down to fxaa, AO is on HBAO (low), and shadows are on Very High (but not soft shadows). Other than that the setting are cranked up all the way, including resolution at 2560x1440 which makes everything so crisp.

The key for me was disabling vsync in game the using d3doverrider to enable it and force triple buffering. Normal vsync was really killing my frame rate and made panning around real choppy. Triple buffering fixed that.

Pay above the average (Currently about $6) and they'll throw in Civ V and Gods and Kings. Make it at least $15 and you get the Brave New World DLC as well...

I have all the Civ games, of course, but I might throw in a couple bucks just to make 3 and 4 digital...

I played the Civ that came out in the early 2000's and became thoroughly bored, I'm up to give it a try again though. I just remember the tutorial taking 2 hours and being very convoluted and considering I never played a strategy game I liked, except Company of Heroes, I passed.

The Humble Simulator Weekly Sale is here to show us just how niche simulators have become in recent years!

https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly?simulator_weekly

Pay what you want to simulate:

Bridge Building with Bridge Project!
Running a Railroad with Trainz Simulator 12!
Driving a truck in Europe with Euro Truck Simulator!
Running a Zoo (But without the advantage of being a tycoon) with Wildlife Park 3!

But maybe that's not enough for you. Maybe you want to play pool and farm!

Well pay more than $6 and they throw in Agricultural Simulator 2013, Agricultural Simulator: Historical Farming, and Pool Nation (With Soundtrack!)

"2013?" You scoff. "Agricultural technology has come a long way in the last year. I need the LATEST!

Well if you pay $10 or more, they'll throw in Professional Farmer 2014!


In all seriousness, I think I actually want to try my hand at a farm sim. It seems like one of those things where it sounds stupid until you try it and end up staying up 'til 3 AM plowing your virtual field...

For me, very few games are worth that much and SPTSOT is no exception, however, if your a fan of South Park and RPGs you will probably love it, if your just a fan of RPGs you will be disappointed because it has about as much depth as Paper Mario.

Is it worth $60? (or $48?)

For me, very few games are worth that much and SPTSOT is no exception, however, if your a fan of South Park and RPGs you will probably love it, if your just a fan of RPGs you will be disappointed because it has about as much depth as Paper Mario.

I feel good about spending $45 on it. Maybe not $60, but it's quite funny. I like how the art style perfectly mimics the show, and so far I haven't gotten sick of repeated jokes. They mix it up pretty well.

Some of my favorite games are on sale on Steam for  an indeterminate amount of time. 

(One of my favorite games of all time) Killing Floor $4.99 (Complete pack with tons of content $12.99) and a tripwire bundle consisting of everything they've done (priceless in my mind) for like $24
Payday and Payday 2 with all DLC for cheap

Marvel Heroes players? You get a free hero.


No, really.


Go to Marvelheroes.com, log in, look at your profile and redeem this code: MHMGIFT


You'll get one of the starting heroes for free, to go with your other heroes.


Marvel Heroes, BTW, is a Diablo-esque action RPG set in the Marvel universe. And Squirrel Girl is in it. (And voiced by Tara Strong.)

Ring Runner.

I only found out about this game today, and the sale ends tomorrow. It's $2.50 on Steam. If you liked Star Control 2 (also known by it's freeware title "The Ur-Quan Masters"), you'll like this. It's pretty kick ass, but it also has a sense of humor.

Also Retro City Rampage is on sale for $1

Post by: d00hickey on April 21, 2014, 11:59:17 AM
Me too, it was one of those rare occasions I just bought it and didn't look it up because I had the money in my Stem wallet from trading cards and such. I actually listen to Total Biscuit a lot, I do think he can be long winded and sometimes just boring, but what I like about him is that he is zero b.s. He tells you his absolute honest opinion with little regard for anything else and that is rare in video games coverage.
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread

Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: d00hickey on April 21, 2014, 08:31:18 PM
I can totally see that reaction. He definitely lacks the charisma other popular reviewers have. For me i found his content to be a very acquired taste but I continued to listen because of his integrity. 
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Compound on April 21, 2014, 09:12:14 PM
Oh he's got plenty of charisma. Over the weekend, I watched him stream a series of Starcraft games on the ladder. 10,000 other people were watching too. Those folks weren't watching for his playing prowess at the game as he's not really a top tier player. Heck, I have a TB miniature on my desk thanks to a Kickstarted boardgame last year.


That being said, yeah, he's got a lot of quirks that drive folks off from him. I spend as much time during the Polaris podcast rolling my eyes at what he's saying as I do actually considering his points.

Always been more of a Yahtzee fan myself, when it comes to British sounding video game reviewers. 

Back on topic.  If you haven't pre ordered Dark Souls II yet, it's now $40.00 on green man gaming.  The pre-order bonus items on steam turned me off of pre ordering, I was just going to wait till it came out.  But I like the idea of an extra $10 off.  Not sure if you get the bonus weapons, but like I said, I don't want to take the easy way through Dark Souls.  That's not why you play Dark Souls.

If you're a Marvel Heroes player, they're having a big weekend where they've brought back all of their most popular holiday items and bonuses, and there's a bunch of codes that have been reactivated too. Most of them give you buff items, but there are two particularly cool codes:

RNDMHRO will unlock a random hero.
RNDMCSTM will unlock a random costume.

Looked too quirky to pass up. Graphics remind me of Borderlands or Psychonauts.

Managed to grab A Wizard's Lizard (never thought I'd say that) for $4.79 due to a pricing error.  It just came out on Monday and the summer sale price was supposed to be 34% off, the same as the release week sale.  Instead, it took off an additional 34% making the total discount 68%.  In this case, I decided to disregard the flowchart.  I'm glad I did, as it is now back to 9.89.

Otherwise, day one is not great.  Was briefly tempted by Democracy 3 but decided against it.  DayZ's 15% discount is a joke.

Really hoping the "Couch Co-Op" pack wins the community choice.  Octodad is a game I've been holding out for a sale on and I was hoping it would go to around 5 bucks and it will be $5.10 if it wins.

Just an FYI- XCom also has a bundle with XCom and The Bureau (the 3rd person shootie game set in the 50s)  for $1 more than just XCom alone. The Bureau wasn't great, but it's certainly worth a buck, especially if you just pretend it's "Invaders from Dimension Z" rather than an XCom game.

I'm interested in playing it too. I'm not going to buy it now because the graphics/art style looks pretty timeless and I figured I could pick it up for even cheaper down the line. I'm also pretty sure it's available on GOG so I will probably wait for it to go on sale there.

I backed the Kickstarter as Wasteland is my second favorite RPG. But it's still in beta at this time, so I'd recommend that if you buy it, don't play it until it's officially released. Because why spoil the game by playing it before it's done? This isn't, say, FTL, which in beta and after, will play different every time. It's a RPG. You only get to play the story once for the first time. But I'd say buy it. But keep in mind, I've been waiting 20+ years for a sequel, so I'm not exactly unbiased.

Agreed, I loved the original Wasteland too (I only played it a few years ago). Like usual I plan to wait until it's finished before I pick it up. An early access game I might pick up is DayZ, but it's going to have to be on a pretty darn good sale.

Can anyone recommend Crusader Kings 2 for 7.99?  I have literally no experience with grand strategy and it seems complicated as hell, but the concept sounds pretty cool and I know that there's a Game of Thrones mod, which is probably the biggest reason why I'm considering it.

Humble's doing another 2k bundle.


For any price:
Bioshock
Darkness II
The Bureau


Beat the average ($6.83 as I type this)
Bioshock 2
Mafia II
Spec Ops The Line
And more games soon


Beat $20
X-Com
Bioshock Infinite


$20 is a great price if you don't happen to already have those games, but if you're like me and have been accumulating 2k titles from the other time they've been on sale, eh.

I already have the Bioshock games, but Mafia II and Spec Ops are very tempting at the current price of $6.02. X-Com and Infinite are also tempting, but $20 is a bit more spending money than I have at the moment. I'm broke until Friday, though, so I'll see about getting it then.

Like The Sims? Don't?  Just like free stuff? Well, you can head to Origin right now and Redeem the code I-LOVE-THE-SIMS and get a free copy of The Sims 2 Ultimate Collection. EA will no longer be updating Sims 2, since they're about to release Sims 4, but it's a pretty rock stable game at this point. And that's Sims 2 plus all 18 expansions.

Who would want to clutter their hard drive with a game they didnt like?

Third of installed Steam games remain unplayed, study finds. (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/459544/third-of-installed-steam-games-remain-unplayed-study-finds/)

Quote
A comprehensive breakdown of Steam sales and game consumption habits, researched by and published on Ars Technica, shows that more than 780 million games have been installed since Valve's digital games platform launched in 2004.

Of this mass of games, about 37 per cent have not been opened, while 17 per cent have been played for less than an hour.

However, Ars Technica notes that many Steam games are packaged as part of bundle deals, while others are given away as part of competitions, and some of the most popular games are free to download.

The publication also notes that its game consumption data is only representative from March 2009, meaning the first five years of Steam player analytics are missing.

Nevertheless, measured samples (of roughly 85,000 valid Steam user accounts for each test) reveal that more than half of Steam's titles have not been meaningfully engaged with. The study's author, Kyle Orland, also details the experiment's methodology and demonstrates tests for accuracy.

Pretty common and the report doesn't cover games bought but not even downloaded.

I own 115 games on Steam. I went through the list to see how many I actually finished. And by finished I mean totally finished. The result:

Seven.

And that's just Steam. I never finished any Final Fantasy after IX, never finished Dragon Force, and most embarrassingly, I have an original copy of Panzer Dragoon Saga. Yes, that game that goes for $300+ at auction. Got about halfway through and got tired of it.

It's funny. It seems like the more games you have, the less inclined you are to stick to any one of them. I have at least played all of them, even if only for a few minutes.

The rights holder just hasn't made new physical copies, and hasn't offered it up for digital download. The only legal way to get SWAT 4 today is to find an unsold physical copy, like the one on Amazon.

My roommate got a copy of the demo early, too, and let me play it a bit. I'm definitely going to remap some of those keys. The A button is very inconveniently placed, and so's the B button. I think I'll switch the button inputs around a bit until I find something that's natural. :P

Just Cause 2 is $2.99 until Friday on Steam.  http://store.steampowered.com/app/8190/

I love this game because it rewards you for causing chaos and blowing stuff up.  And you have a grappling hook.  And a parachute.  It's a grapplechute.  That alone is stupid fun, but when you are rewarded for blowing up water towers and other property of a corrupt government in a sandbox world that is just plain huge... it's a lot to love.

So, have you picked up Saint's Row IV in one of the gazillion times it's been on sale on Steam? (Like it is right now, BTW. $10.99 for all the games and DLC from SR2 to IV.) 


Well, the standalone Gat out of Hell arrives next week and right now at Gamestop (http://www.gamestop.com/pc/games/saints-row-gat-out-of-hell/118076) it's $4.99 which is 75% off the normal price for the PC. Likely a misprice, but but you might want to jump on it if you've been interested in the title.

Steam is having a "Roguelike" sale this weekend. If you're into that sort of thing, which I am. Some games that I would strongly recommend that are under $5 now that I don't think too many people here play would include Rogue Legacy (especially Rogue Legacy), Risk of Rain, Tales of Maj'Eyal and Super House of Dead Ninjas.

And there's the usual recommendations of FTL, Spelunky, Binding of Isaac, Don't Starve, Crypt of the NecroDancer etc.

I don't think you could have chosen two more dissimilar games  :P Tales is about as Roguelike as you can get without going full on ASCII graphics, while Super House of Dead Ninjas is more straight up action.

Post by: Pak-Man on April 27, 2015, 11:22:40 AM
Yeah, I was going for variety. I picked Tales because it looked extremely roguish (I think there's even a graphic option to make it look ASCII) and House of Dead Ninjas because I've had a good history with Adult Swim games. I regret neither purchase. :^)

Interested in Amibos?

Well, after I finish shaking my head, here's Amazon's release schedule for them today.  (http://www.amazon.com/gp/browse.html/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&linkCode=ur2&node=11603609011&tag=cheapassgam08-20&linkId=5PQG4UA47XRK3JWS)

They're limiting the sales to certain times and you can only buy 1 of each fig.

Quote
Thank you for your interest in ordering the new amiibo figures from Amazon.com! Quantities of the new characters are extremely limited, so we'd like to ensure that as many customers as possible have the opportunity to get the new figures!

Throughout the afternoon of Friday, May 29, we'll be posting each Wave 4 amiibo figure individually within the following time windows. Each will become available for purchase at a random time during that time frame. Mark your calendars for the following times tomorrow!

Pac-Man: 2:00 p.m. - 2:30 p.m. PT
Charizard: 2:30 p.m. - 3:00 p.m. PT
Inkling Boy: 3:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. PT
Lucina: 3:30 p.m. - 4:00 p.m. PT
Wario: 4:00 p.m. - 4:30 p.m. PT
Inkling Girl: 4:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. PT
Silver Mario: 5:00 p.m. - 5:30 p.m. PT
Robin: 5:30 p.m. - 6:00 p.m. PT
Inkling Boy, Girl, and Squid 3-pack: 6:00 p.m. - 6:30 p.m. PT

We're limiting each amiibo figure to 1 per customer, and we'll be disabling 1-Click Ordering. Additionally, it'd be helpful to make sure you've updated your credit card and shipping information to help you move quickly through the checkout process.

There you go. There are links to each product on the linked Amazon page. Best of luck to you collectors.

Chances are pretty high. While most of the Trek games so far are from Activision or Interplay, Unity was from Spectrum Holobyte/Microprose. Since GoG already has many titles from that publisher, the chances are good that whatever deal that free up the other Trek products will also work for Final Unity as well. (And hopefully Elite Forces and Birth of the Federation.)


Not a GoG employee nor lawyer. Do not take my theory as gospel.

Pillars of Eternity is also 25% off (didn't know they were selling that as well) and The Witcher is its usual $4.99 sale price, just in case you haven't bought it via Amazon, Steam or GoG prior to now.

If you missed out on that brief period of time that Arkham Knight was available on PC, you might want to check out G2A.com. They're still selling it, and the current price is only $16.

You know they're going to fix the PC version eventually. So if you refuse to play the broken (but but still totally playable) version of the game, you can still buy it now, while it's cheap. Because once the PC port IS fixed, you better believe they'll be selling it for $60.

You can get a pre order of the Mad Max game for $21.

http://www.kinguin.net/product/142269/mad-max-pre-order-steam-cd-key-1429619032-14-t/

My problem is I'm worried the game might suck, but the concept seems so awesome.

Yeah. I think I might wait for reviews to come out on that one. If it turns out it's good I'll happily support the game by paying full prices, especially considering I loooovvveeeddd the movie.

I bought it. I think it will be worth the $40 discount. I watched a bunch of game play and I don't think it will be horrible, but possibly a bit uninspired. Based on the game play alone I could see me having at least a few hours of fun with it. Also I can't see WB dropping the ball on a PC port after the Dark Knight quagmire. Also Avalanche has always been a PC centric developer.

End of Summer Sale at the Humble store, it has some great deals including a free copy of Stealth Inc. 2 to anyone one until Aug 31. There is no excuse to not get this game. I played Stealth Bastard (the prequel to Stealth Inc. 2) and it is a really good side-scrolling stealth, action, puzzle game.

A quick note- did you buy Castle Crashers on the 360? Well, until the 20th, you can pick it up for free on the XB1 as well to celebrate the release of Castle Crashers Remastered for that system. Just log into your XBL account and the reduced price should appear. You can also transfer saves and stuff over, but you'll need to poke around for the procedure on the Microsoft site for that.

One of the games in the bundle, called Contradiction, is one of the most entertaining games I've played this year. It's a FMV "interactive movie" where you play a detective trying to solve a homicide in a small British town. The acting is surprisingly good and the gameplay is really compelling.

I can't think of one by name, but you want a benchmarking tool. There are a few "standard" ones that will give you s rough idea of your hardware's capability with different scenarios with varying resolution, numbers of ibjects and post-processing effects like antialiasing. You can also look up scores needed to play particular games with a good experience.

By the way- GoG's fall sale is on.

Also, if you've purchased Darksiders II on either GoG or Steam, you may have gotten either a free upgrade to the new "Deathinitive Edition" or you'll have a discount to do so, depending on how much of the rest of the series that you've bought. Apparently, I bought copies on both Steam and GoG at some point. I'm guessing there was a Humble Bundle involved.

I was excited when I saw this post but Jade Empire was only listed as for sale ($14.99) when I checked. I looked it up and apparently it's not clear whether or not EA mistakenly made it free temporarily, or possibly might bring it back for free.

From Eurogamer, changes to dun, dun, dun! The Steam Sale!

According to an e-mail sent to developers, the T-Day Steam sale (Nov 25- Dec 1) and sales beyond that will no longer have, say, GTA V on sale for a few hours at a big discounts and then pop up to a more modest discount. Rather, the sale price will be constant through the entire sale and the items on sale will just cycle through the front page. (And the end of the year sale is Dec 22- Jan 4.) It's suspected that this might be a change to accommodate Steam's refund policy to keep people from buying stuff and then returning it if it goes on sale further.

So, to sum up- no more daily sales, just a week long sale of stuff.

I really like Elite Dangerous. I spent about 150 hrs in it and plan to play again when the new expansion for planet landing/exploration comes out. Euro Truck Sim is an apt description but Elite has much more action and options than that, it also looks freaking fantastic which helps a lot in the game. It's a fun game to turn on a good podcast and explore the galaxy. I was primarily a bounty hunter/smuggler but explorer, trader, miner, pirate, and trader were all viable career options too. It's best played with a flight stick but a Xbox pad works great I heard. For $15 dollars it's a freaking steal and you would be crazy to not try if your even a little interested.

My pick for the Steam sale is the Metro Redux Bundle for $7.49. The bundle includes Metro Last Light and Metro 2033 Redux (completely re made version of 2033 in the updated Last Light Engine with updated mechanics). These two games are probably my favorite single player FPS games on PC. I very rarely replay games but I have played each of these games at least three times and I plan to play them again. The games were developed in the Ukraine and the there is some wonky localization and voice acting, the AI can also be a little strange when you play stealthily. Both games are about 10 hours and are the best looking, most atmospheric games on PC IMO. Do yourself a favor and buy these game, I love them so much and want the world to play them.

I am really tempted to try Elite: Dangerous.

Endless Legend and all of its DLC, including the new Shadows DLC, is 66% off on Steam. If you're into 4X games at all (a la Civilization V), this is very much worth getting. Much better than Civ: Beyond Earth.

Also, Distant Worlds: Universe is 50% off (which is still $30). DW:U is the most ludicrously complicated space 4X game ever made, hands down. Puts GalCiv 3 to shame. However, be warned, it is very hard to get into.

Give it a try. I sincerely doubt you'll get a better deal for a while. The performance scales really well too if you don't have the best system.

Probably not worth it if you don't have a controller. At launch game was borderline unplayable with a KB&M.

Good luck with it. I sunk about 5 hours into it and then when I went to play it again there was no saved data. It was free so I cant complain but still a big waste of time.

My experience with the Epic Games Launcher so far has mostly been bad. I'm mostly sure they're giving this game away for free just to get people into their game launcher and store. It's just what we need on the PC, more Uplays and Origens.

Five PC games with an alleged value of $80 or more. Might be getting Dues Ex and Tomb Raider or you might be getting Achranox and Kane & Lynch. You'll find out what it is in 7 hours.


(Later)
Well, for the curious the titles were FF XIV, FFXIII, Thief (the new one), Lara Croft and the Temple of Osiris and the first episode of Life is Strange (gee, thanks), with some coupons for other stuff.

Pretty excited about Wasteland 2.  I've never played an old school CRPG like that, and it seems way too complicated for my puny brain, but I want to try it out.

I have to say I'm a little disappointed in this one. Wasteland 2 is great but I've had it for a while on GOG (my dumb ass still activated it on Steam on accident). The other games are early access survival type games, and bad controls meme simulators. I'm looking forward to playing Switchcars though, that looks rad. 

The value proposition is still great and maybe I'll end up loving Ark, Grav or I am Bread. Three games I otherwise would have never even considered. I'm super happy with last month's line up, and it's all for a good cause so I'm a sucker for it. 
Title: Re: Video Game Bargain Thread
Post by: Compound on March 07, 2016, 01:33:32 AM
I'll speak highly of Sentinels of the Multiverse in that line up. It's the video game version of a popular card game, whose main issue was the high amounts of record keeping involved. And the computer takes care of that in this version. The Basic set is a bit limited, but there's still around 9000 different combos of heroes, villains and environments in it.

The Kickstarter for the final physical expansion for the game is currently at 1.2 million with a few days left to go, so it's got a pretty healthy following.

I made out pretty well. 5 games for $43 total. I've gotten in the habit of using the wish list for games that I want but don't have time to play. Makes it easy during sales to remember all the stuff I had my eye on. I got:

I hit the GOG sales earlier in the summer, so I was tapped out when it came to Steam.  Only thing I picked up was Infinity Runner for $1.39.

At that price, I could've gotten a turd in a box and I wouldn't have been too unhappy.  But what I got is hilarious b-movie-esque entertainment.  I honestly wouldn't have paid more than that for this game (it's regular $5-$6), but the jumping and ducking, fast-paced action reminds me an awful lot of the opening level of Aztec Challenge for the Commodore 64.  And its gimmick is pointless, but downright hilarious.  But I won't spoil it here.

There are some really good deals right now on Bandai Namco's site for most systems (https://www.bandainamcoentstore.com/digital-deal) use code BNE15OFF for an extra 15% off. I picked up a Naruto game and Tales of Zestria for about $13. They have all the Dark Souls' and Dragonball stuff on there.

Here's a Steam key for Galak-Z if anyone wants it.

I'm really disappointed in the PS4 Slim price. I hoped it would be about $50 cheaper. Hopefully I can get an older version of the PS4 come February for Persona 5. P5 will release on PS3 but when I hooked up my PS3 recently and it crashed twice on me. I cant risk the idea of losing the console half way through the game.

They cancelled all pre-orders. No headphones or "we're sorry" gift cards. (Although some people had luck calling and arguing with supervisors.)

Anyway, picked one up this morning & can't wait to see how the graphics are improved!  *spends 4 hours playing Peggle 2 instead*

If you're looking for something to tide you over until Civ VI, might I suggest Endless Legend. Endless Legend (and Endless Space and Dungeon of the Endless) are 75% off on Steam.

All are good, but Endless Legend is easily the best. They just released their fourth major expansion, Tempest, which adds an aquatic faction. I love that the different factions are actually substantially different from each other, much more so than in Civ V.

Highly recommended. Also... Winter is coming!

OK. First of all, there's an awesome Humble Bundle right now where every game in the bundle is rated overwhelmingly positive on Steam, which is a neat idea. Has a lot of cool looking games:

Default:
Shantae
Epic Battle Fantasy 4
Pony Island

Beat the average (Currently $6.69)
Day of the Tentacle Remastered
Deadbolt
More to come.

Pay $10 or more:

VA-11 Hall-A: Cyberpunk Bartender Action
N++



So I jumped on the $10 bundle because I used to love N+ and Cyberpunk Bartending sounds awesome.

BUT I already had the excellent Day of the Tentacle Remaster. Now you can, too!

The Steam sale is going on, so there are lots of great bargains, but since a lot of us are still all nostalgic over the 16-bit games list, I thought I'd point out that the Steam Sale applies to the Sega Mega-Drive and Genesis Classics bundle. $15.75 gets you 59 Genesis games. They're not ALL winners, but at a little more than a quarter per game, you can't complain too badly.

That's:

Alex Kidd™ in the Enchanted Castle, Alien Soldier, Alien Storm, Altered Beast™, Beyond Oasis, Bio-Hazard Battle™, Bonanza Bros.™, Columns™, Columns™ III, Comix Zone™, Crack Down™, Decap Attack™, Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine™, Dynamite Headdy, Ecco the Dolphin™, Ecco™ Jr., Ecco™: The Tides of Time, ESWAT™: City Under Siege, Eternal Champions™, Fatal Labyrinth™, Flicky™, Gain Ground™, Galaxy Force II™, Golden Axe III, Golden Axe™, Golden Axe™ II, Gunstar Heroes, Kid Chameleon™, Landstalker: The Treasures of King Nole, Light Crusader, Phantasy Star II, Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom, Phantasy Star IV: The End of the Millennium, Ristar™, Shadow Dancer™, Shining Force, Shining Force II, Shining in the Darkness, Shinobi™ III: Return of the Ninja Master, Sonic 3 & Knuckles, Sonic 3D Blast™, Sonic CD, Sonic Spinball™, Sonic The Hedgehog, Sonic The Hedgehog 2, Space Harrier™ II, Streets of Rage, Streets of Rage 2, Streets of Rage 3, Super Thunder Blade™, Sword of Vermilion™, The Revenge of Shinobi, ToeJam & Earl, ToeJam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron, VectorMan 2, VectorMan™, Virtua Fighter™ 2, Wonder Boy III: Monster Lair, and Wonder Boy in Monster World.

Well I caved.  My wife wants some time away from me to sort things out.  She still loves me a lot but she's feeling trapped and needs to figure out what she wants in life.  It's all very depressing, but the most important thing to me is that she's happy, so I'll support whatever she needs to do.

Sooooo I'm going to have some extra spare time that I'll have to fill with video games to distract myself from the pain of separation, and I figured I should take advantage of this steam sale while it's still going.  The potential loss of your wife and partner is no reason not to be frugal, that's what I always say.

Let's see, I picked up Pillars of Eternity II, Sailaway, and Bokida.  Thought about going with a full on nautical theme and getting Raft instead of Bokida, but it was more expensive and I want to wait until Raft is out of early access.  Should be enough there to keep me a happy little vegetable for a few weeks at least.

Those are both pretty accurate assessments. MHW is great game to play 30-60 minutes at a time. The game is almost entirely mission based. You can just go out and dick around, but rarely any reason why you wouldThere's very little in the way of plot, but a crap load in the way of gameplay. Seriously, it can be overwhelming. The biggest difference between World and previous MH games is that the environment plays a much larger role. The monsters interact with their surroundings, and with each other. This makes the world feel much more alive and fleshed out.

I put MHW on hiatus so I could play Sekiro. I'm planning to pick it up again once Iceborne gets released for PC.

If you're a fan of Supergiant (makers of Bastion and Transistor), now would be a good time to buy their most recent game: Hades. Not only is it on sale on Steam, but through Jan 3 it comes with a free copy of Pyre. Hades is their take on the Roguelite genre. If there's one genre I'm a sucker for it's Roguelite/likes.

Yeahhh that does it.  Going to pick it up.  Glad it's finally on steam.

Also going to pick up The Surge 2... it's cheap... don't judge me.  Probably never going to finish it. 

Now I'm just trying to decide if I should get Indivisible on Switch or PC...

I'm waiting until the game comes out of early access to arrive on GOG.

Having a lot of fun with it. Definitely pick it up when it does.

Shadow of the Tomb Raider bundle is on sale on Steam for $20 this weekend.

I had installed the demo so I could see what ray tracing looked like when I upgraded my PC, now I guess I'll be playing the full game eventually.

All of the available Final Fantasy games and Octopath Traveler are 50% off on Switch, so if anyone's looking for a good way to kill a whole lotta time while staying indoors, you could do a whole lot worse.

If you want recommendations, Octopath is wonderful, of course, and I have a special fondness for the back-to-its-roots FFIX, and nobody gives enough credit to FFXII.

Back catalog starting to look thin? Of course not! But if you want it to be even bigger, Humble Bundle has this little gem:

$30 for a bunch of top-notch games. Profits go to stop COVID, so it's a win-win.

Lot of really good games on there. I already own about half of them, but I'll probably still pick this up, if for no other reason than to support the charity.
