Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

Old busted Steam thread. Go find the new hotness.

    Ok, this flash sale stuff is confusing the hell out of me. Is there a page where you can see all of them? Europa Universalis 3, DR2:OTR, Civ 5, and Fear 3 are all listed, but I know Amnesia is also one and has another 3 hours. Are there more that I'm missing?

    I think EU3 started early and displaced Amnesia.

    What are the chances of New Vegas going back up on a flash sale or as a daily? I'm still kicking myself over having missed it last time.

    Amnesia is still 75% off to $4.99 if you find its store page, though it doesn't say for how much longer.

    Civilization V is on sale right now. Is it a good game to buy for a guy who likes first person shooters, space sims, and BioWare RPGs?

    Well it is nothing like any of those. If you can't download the demo and test it before playing check out some youtube videos of let's plays. But I like all those things and I like the Civ series.

    I guess for 7 bucks, I can afford to check it out. That's the price of a Chipotle burrito.

    Alas, I'm not. The group is locked down for the duration of the sale. Which is completely understandable.

    Agreed. It's probably done for this sale unless it comes back as a daily, but I think I saw it as a daily towards the beginning?

    Yeah, sorry. That's actually the main reason I joined it and am using it; I like my giveaways to go to long-term members.

    I'd bet just about anything it goes on sale again before the end, though.

    So this is purely idle observation because I don't care about the game or really know much about it, maybe I'm way off-base, but...is anybody else surprised that they're still asking $40 as the regular price for Age of Empires III, even for the complete pack? I mean, wasn't Microsoft doing some promotion where they were literally giving that game away for a penny a year or two ago?

    I remember my roommate at college playing it back in like early 2009 and it was not by any means a new game even back then...or his cheap ass wouldn't have had it at all.

    Just to give the requisite point of caution: EU3 Complete is not actually complete.

    You need EU3 Chronicles if you want all the expansions (and you do want all the expansions if you buy it).

    I keep waiting for them to introduce something. Seems like they were leading up to...what? Today would have been a fairly logical day to do it, as it's Monday. And yet...nothing. Although the little black Steam mascot critter certainly looks like he's up to no good in the adorable and highly entertaining store backgrounds!

    Oh, boy. Finally saw that Dead Rising 2 (Frank Fucking West Edition) was a flash sale and scooped it up with less than an hour to spare!

    Score! I've been price watching that sucker for months and it's never been ten bucks before.

    Time for creepy and inappropriate "erotic" zombie photography!

    My Steam Sale Victory List Thus Far:

    - Dead Rising 2: Off the Record
    - The Walking Dead
    - Batman Arkham City
    - Trine 2
    - From Dust
    - The Binding of Isaac


    I'm sure this list will grow as I become more destitute . . . .

    FYI, Dear Esther isn't actually a "game". It's a visual novel where you walk though some stunning scenery while being told a very weird but intriguing story.

    Still very well worth the price while it's on sale.

    I am getting ready to turn in for the night, Steam thread. But before I do, I'd just like to say thank God for Finland - because I have my download region set to Finland, and I am getting the best download speeds I have gotten the entire sale, whereas using the one actually located in my home city I was sometimes getting literally 0 bytes per second.

    On the off chance there is anybody here who is actually from Finland, I apologize if I am making your downloads go slower by butting in (though I doubt it). I don't know if Finland has a single other attraction to offer as a place to live, but I guess fast Steam downloads just go to show there are compensations for everything!

    Holy SHIT. No fewer than 57 people among my Steam friends have Skyrim on their wishlist. I am amazed there are still so many who don't have it.
    I have it on 360, but it's on my wishlist in case steam ever does one of those "win the top X games in your wishlist" things, cause I'd like to sometime try the PC version with mods and shit ye know. Especially since I upgraded my pc recently.

    bump that.

    So I just spent the day in the flaming hellhole of drought America outside at various car lots trying to find something I need while simultaneously finding good excuses to leave when i start to feel jerked around and I got home to find that @big Isy had sent me Dear Esther. Kudos.

    Quoting this because I forgot to repost it before I went to bed and I can't do steamgifts on the phone, also to reaffirm @big isy's and @minor incident's gifting classiness. I also want to thankthe auto advice administered in the steam chat today when I got home.

    Started playing SR3 in a foolish attempt to actually play games I own on steam. It's pretty fun. Is there a part set in the future? I remember really futuristic promo screens and this city is pretty normal I'd say.

    Civilization V is on sale right now. Is it a good game to buy for a guy who likes first person shooters, space sims, and BioWare RPGs?

    CiV is almost nothing like any of those, so, uh ... maybe?

    I mean, I've been playing Civ games since I illegally pirated my friend's original Civ way back in the dark ages. I've bought every one since. I think I've spent more time with the Civ franchise than I have with my wife (of almost 8 years and ~4 years dating beforehand).

    In terms of strategy games, it's really the ur-example. The whole series, even the weak ones (Civ 3), are fantastic.
