with_teeth26

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

it does... don't buy it though! the game is poop! poop I tell ya!

picked it up on Tuesday from Amazon (from Canada) and I regret it. Not a good game at all.

Thanks for the heads up, I'll skip this one than.

[QUOTE="darksusperia"]with the THQ bundle, which is epic value, If you already have some of the games, what happens? Do they just go into your inventory to gift out?guynamedbilly

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.

Even for Valve bundles they don't give you giftable copies, the exception being The Orange Box I think.

I feel like an idiot, I can't get it to work, both in browser and Steam client

This thread on the steam forums is pretty cool. It lists some good sales that aren't getting any attention.

About to grab Zeno Clash, STALKER Clear Sky and Velvet Assassin for less than $5.:D

Might get Legendary for lulz. Will definitely pick up Flatout UC since I have heard that is the best of them.

Hard Reset was listed, and I second the recommendation, awesome game.
#118 Posted by FamilyGuyFan507 (2429 posts) -

A LOT of games not listed on the front of the site are on sale...

Question, anybody having trouble pulling the trigger? I have so much money saved up and I'm completely frozen. I cannot find it in me to get some of these games for whatever reason.

#119 Posted by FamilyGuyFan507 (2429 posts) -

Deux Ex is 4.99. Yay or nay?

I already have it so I'll third the recommendation.

I still need to actually play through it though haha.

Any chance Portal/Portal 2 get cheaper, as well as Civ 5 games!? I'm waiting on so many games to get cheap, I'm just hoping I don't miss opportunities. :(

Portal has been a daily in every sale. Just noticed that The Maw is on Steam. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a cool indie game.

Deus Ex HR? Hell yeah. No question lol. :)
#124 Posted by FamilyGuyFan507 (2429 posts) -

I know very little about the Deux Ex games. I know they're an RPG, I just saw that it was that cheap and I don't think I can pass it up. It was 11 bucks earlier today and went to 60% below that. Shame I have NO idea what they're about.

It's a hybrid game. First-person shooter, that doesn't take itself seriously as say, a military FPS, which is good. RPG elements. Third-person view cover system, but it doesn't focus heavily on cover like Gears of War, Spec Ops The Line. It isn't a cover and pop cover shooter, that's what i'm trying to say. Wonderful characters, good story and writing. Graphics are great. It's easily one of my top 5 favorite video games of all-time. For $5, it's a steal. Highway Robbery, even.

Fable 3, 12$......kinda tempting. I have so many games I dont even think im targeting any. Sales this whole year have been great.

#127 Posted by darksusperia (6911 posts) -
just got my first purchases. Prince of Persia 08 Prince of Persia forgotten sands Q.U.B.E Hydrophobia prophecy Hard Reset Ext. Prob going to grab the THQ bundle later. Got a few others wishlisted, hopefully they drop.

I want Civ 5 Gods and Kings. Do I need Civ 5 to buy that?

Does anyone know if doom3 bfg still doesn't work with mods/ is a terrible mess of a pc port? I'm tempted to get it as my original doom 3 and expantion boxes are in storage. (bad call, I know).

I bought a lot of games during the summer sale. I think it's time for me to sit back and enjoy the games I bought instead of having a backlog of 30 games like some users here have.
#133 Posted by wis3boi (31292 posts) -

FamilyGuyFan507

yes, it adds in new units, diplomacy, AI fixes, maps, better mod support, and religions

#134 Posted by MrYaotubo (2682 posts) -
Just a clarification if anyone can help me: I already have a few games present on the THQ bundle so if I buy it for myself can I gift the games I already own(SR3,Nexuiz,DoW2,CoH and SupCom)to my friends or its one of those cases where I can´t?

Aww,that really sucks,it would be a great oportunity for me to get Darksiders 1 and 2 and a few others that I´m fairly interested in and give some "christmas" gifts in the process,what a shame. I may end up getting it anyway,if only because of Darksiders 2.

Is "I Am Alive" any good? I remember when the trailer for this game came out and then it was scrapped. Now we have this "version" of I Am Alive and I'm just not sure. Critic and user reviews are very mixed.

I have it but have only played the first 20 minutes or so and so far it is decent. Its no AAA title but for a download only game it seems interesting enough so far.

Thanks Todd. I'll sleep on it. Perhaps, watch a few more gameplay videos before I go to sleep.

Amazon has Darksiders 1&2 + all DLC for $13 (Steam Keys) I bought it earlier and it's funny bc they give you the season pass for DS2 which unlocks all DLC but then each DLC is given individually which you could give out to your friends that already own the game

Amazon separates all the base games and DLC with individual downloads and keys. That's what I like about them. :)

EXTREMELY weak sale this year - then again not that many games have been released since last Christmas either.
