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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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. :)
