And Steam Sale is live. Servers getting hammered, like usual.


BTW- The GoG Summer Sale is still going on, despite the "Here's all of our deals at the same time" sale from a few days ago that usually notes the end of the sale.

Holy shit, thanks for telling us. I just assumed that sale was over and stopped checking. Considering GOG' s sale this year has been better (IMO) than the Steam sales over the last year, I will definitely keep checking it.

What I love about the GOG bundles is that they account for titles you might already own. I already had the first 3 Broken Sword games, so I got the 4th one in the "Bundle" at a majorly reduced price.

Speaking of GoG, anyone know if they are working on getting Star Trek TNG: A Final Unity to go with the rest of the Star Trek games?  I know they are different publishers so that could be a thing...

I was bieng threated with death by wolf raping before it was cool!.

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.

Oh, and Origin is also doing a summer sale at the moment.  Probably the best deals are Dragon Age: The New One, Sims 3 and BF: Hardline at half off. 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.

Got Valkyria Chronicles on Steam for $4.99 last night. Still waiting for it to finish downloading. The internet out here in the sticks is a little slower than I was used to at my last place.

I'm still playing Marvel Puzzle Quest a lot. I don't dare start Heroes.

And Humble Bundle just announced their E3 bundle with...


Wildstar
Warframe, plus credits.
Ghost Recon Phantoms
30 days of Twitch Turbo
Beta keys for World of Warships
Psychonauts +30% off Grim Fandango
Wizard Wars stuff
10% off the Humble Store coupon
Payday 2 masks
Company of Heroes
Age of Empires II expansion
Smite Loki pack


Pay the average and get copies of Total War: Medieval 2, Cities in Motion 2 and a beta key for Rainbow 6 Siege. Pay the average +$2 and get Payday 2 and more masks.


Lots of stuff and Wildstar's going F2P later this year, so I'm sure that people who own the game will get extra stuff when it converts to F2P.

Agreed. I'd love to have a WiiU for Smash.

And both the GoG and Steam sales are in the "final encore" stages with all the deals returning.
