I would sure hope so. Best played with friends though because you might get a douche-bag commander on your team. :P It's very heavy on teamplay.Elann2008

Decided to pick it up. If anyone wants to play let me know.

#52 Posted by Elann2008 (32953 posts) -

YES! Natural Selection 2 for $10!

I'll update the OP with a Natural Selection 2 friend request later on. I think we should at least get together once or twice and team up!

My steam id: bluefish2530. Steam nickname: Elann Just received a Steam restart update. One of things it probably addressed was the store slowdown. Runs smooth now. :)

It's awesome. I bought it back when it first came out. If you liked the Metal Slug games from back in the day you'll love this. Note that it does have a 30FPS cap but it is still very enjoyable and has some great boss battles

I know mate... xD

Gamefly.com just refreshed their End of Days sale. Amazon.com has Hitman Absolution for $20 (still), so you could save $5. Steamworks game so unless you have something against buying somewhere else, you could use that $5 for another game.

So far I've purchased:

  • Payday The Heist
  • Inquisitor
  • Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena
  • Fallout New Vegas (second copy I've purchased, retail Newegg)
  • Dark Souls
  • Lone Survivor
  • Primordia
#63 Posted by FamilyGuyFan507 (2429 posts) -

So many good deals. I seriously do not know what to buy. Thank GOD, I got paid yesterday. Usually my paycheck does not come in until that Friday, it arrived Wednesday. I have so many games I want, so far Skyrim and FarCry 3 have not been lowered. I really wanted FarCry 3.

#64 Posted by nooblet69 (5162 posts) -

Definitely gonna pick up Natural Selection 2. Also have my eye on Saints Row the third. Is it worth 20 bucks ?

#65 Posted by Sweetbackhair (1926 posts) -
I'll probably get either Far Cry 3, or AC3 on uplay. But for this sale I wanna wait till after my Christmas shopping is done so I can get the Borderlands series.

I'll go for that. How exactly do I go about paying you and receiving it ? Can that all be done through steam ?

Any chance Assassins Creed wil be on sale? It is in the Ubisoft pack but it does no =t have a price cut like the other Ubisoft games do.

toddx77
There's a high chance it will be. I mean, day one and we already have Hitman Absolution and Borderlands 2 (two new and recent games), with 50% off. You could expect the same treatment for Assassin's Creed 3, and maybe even Far Cry 3.
#71 Posted by Gooeykat (3352 posts) -
Picked up Wargame: EE on steam, I've had my eye on this one for a while and 75% off is probably the lowest it will go for a while.
#72 Posted by trastamad03 (4852 posts) -
I feel weird =[ Used to buy tons of games during these days, now there's nothing D: Nothing seems interesting =[ The hell is wrong with me.

Just got Mirrors Edge, hope it's good. Want Dark Souls but haven't got a controller :( I hope ME3 goes on a big sale but it's probably best to wait until next year when I feel like playing all it from the first game and all DLC's out.

Man.. you just missed ME3 a few hours ago. It was on sale for 2 days on Gamefly.com for $12.... :( Mirror's Edge is great. Underrated.

Looks like the entire THQ collection is 25 bucks, which inludes Saints Row 3.

fyi amazon is price matching steams and they are giving a 5 dollar off coupon for janurary

#79 Posted by bonafidetk (3812 posts) -
Just picked up natural selection 2 for 60% off. I doubt very much that it'll go lower than that in the next 6 months.

I'd be shocked if either Assassin's Creed or Far Cry 3 go 50% off. Ubisoft games on Steam take a long time to come down in price, second to Activision.

If I didn't have 75% of of those games through sales, humble bundle, etc. I'd totally jump all over that. If anyone doesn't have the majority of those games for the THQ bundle, jump on it now. That's a HUGE steal!

fyi, amazon.com started its sale way before Steam, which just started today. A few games like Hitman Absolution is cheaper too.

Anyone reccomend Fable 3 ? So far I got Natural Selection 2. Waiting for AC 3 and a couple other games to go on sale.

nooblet69
I cannot recommend Fable 3. It's the worse of the 3 Fable games. Fable Lost Chapters being the best. Fable 2 was horrible and 3.. let's just leave it at that. Even if it was $1, it's a dollar saved or spent, although your time wasted could never be returned to you. Use your precious time for something else.

Thanks, guess I will save my money for something else. I loved fable 1 and played 2 but never beat it.

I hate Steam...at least my wallet does. Thinking about getting Hitman : Absolution...got a day or so think it over. 30 bucks isn't a bad price.

Probably. :( Never bought a bundle on Steam. Amazon's bundle have separate codes for each game. Good call though.

I've heard that using an american billing address works.

I'm pretty sure you don't receive giftable games from bundles. It's set up as you lose what you already own. This is based off what I've read on the forums during past sales. However, I have personally never bought any of these Steam bundles.

That's true. Unless it specifically says, don't count on getting extra copies. It's mostly the Valve games that do that and a handful of others.
