Gamersgate also has Civ V GOTY at $90 list. Am I missing something? I figured they'd be above inflating prices (to a wildly unrealistic degree) to make a discount look better. trjp 13-08-2012, 06:09 PM Gamersgate also has Civ V GOTY at$90 list. Am I missing something? I figured they'd be above inflating prices (to a wildly unrealistic degree) to make a discount look better.

Apart from anything else, that's illegal in many countries - in the UK it's illegal to offer an item as 'discounted' without proving you've had it for sale at the higher stated price for a given period beforehand (whether this applies to DD stores is arguable but I see no reason why not).

90 dollar list price? That can't be right. Even on launch day the game was 40 euros ( 50$) in stores here. Gamersgate also has Civ V GOTY at$90 list. Am I missing something? I figured they'd be above inflating prices (to a wildly unrealistic degree) to make a discount look better.

Both show €39.95 list here.

The discount code was quite nice, but GMG seems to have wienered the schnitzel on Sleeping Dogs, sending EU keys to NA customers. Could be a Square mistake I suppose. As of now I still don't have a key, not that I was planning to start playing at noon on a Tuesday anyway. I'd say live and learn, but I haven't learned anything. I'll shed a few tears for a nice discount.

Edit: Burp; got the key.

If you use GamersGate, and have the 15% IGN discount, it's possible to get Dark Souls for less than $30, as they give 10% blue coins for this preorder and the usual 5% blue coins. It's SteamWorks anyway, and as a bonus, it's currently available in some countries where the Steam version is not. Yeah if you're in the market for a pre-order then that Gamersgate pre-order bonus + IGN discount is nice if you collect blue coins. For UK Dark Souls is £25.46 paid and 6900 back in blue coins = £3.75 credit I kind of like GMG for their prices but their customer service had problems lately (http://blog.greenmangaming.com/2012/08/an-update-on-order-not-complete/) with payment processing issues and their support forum has a lot of unhappy people (I had an issue recently myself with payment taken for game I didn't receive due to the page freezing during payment processing and I'm still awaiting refund). Unless GMG's price is really unbeatable and it's a Steamworks or Origin code rather than their downloader, I'll now buy elsewhere if I can. johnki 15-08-2012, 11:21 AM 60% off of Freedom Force vs the Third Reich on GOG.com (http://www.gog.com/en/gamecard/freedom_force_vs_the_3rd_reich). If you didn't get it in the Gamersgate sale, it's only$2.39 and there's no reason not to pick it up. It's a nice real-time tactical RPG and is oozing with comic book-style charm.

No I don't think so, I've just bought Hawx 2, and it (suprisingly) only cost me a dollar in my local currency (NZD). Its worth noting, that the download link is only live for a month, after which you'll have to aquire the install files from somewhere else.

I applaud this sentiment wholeheartedly - but legally speaking, it's utterly wrong of course.

No matter how right it may sound - I cannot, get away from the feeling that buying something and then faffing about with hacks and cracks and the risk of viruses - Torrents (and the risk they come with) or NZBs or dodgy filesharing services etc. - is a soiling experience I'd rather avoid.

Thus my mantra is

"Buy it - play it - forget about it" If it's still around in a few years I might play it again - but probably not :)

The half-off sale hasn't even helped it crack the top ten. It's being outpaced by a couple oldish Sim titles with minor discounts. It has through the end of the weekend, when the sale ends, to get in there before this just gets sad. When it does go F2P I think I'll pick up where I left off during the free weekend simply to pat Funcom on the head and tell them it's going to be okay.

I've never considered the monthly fee subscription model reasonable. I could play a game like this (I tried TSW during the free weekend and it was pretty nice), but the amount you pay for the privilige is just so much higher than for any other game, and I simply can't see how the experience is worth so much more. And then the game also has micros for buying clothes, which seems a bit rich when you already paid full new-game price for the disc AND a monthly fee. They should have launched with a pay once, play forever model plus micros, and I'd have gladly bought the game. As it is now, I'll very likely play it when it goes f2p, but not before then.

If you don't play MMOs properly - perhaps - but if you do...

I played WoW for about 2 years, on and off - that's about £240 in subscriptions and £90 in game/expansions.

For that £330 I got just over 250 DAYS of entertainment - that's 6000 hours. My normal 'value for money' calculation is 1 hour per pound - wheras each hour of WoW cost me just 18p

No other game could even remotely match that (erm - maybe Fairway Solitaire in Ipad!) but nothing on the PC platform comes even remotely close. I've got a couple of games which cost under £10 and I've played 20-30 hours - but in most cases I get nowhere near that.

Subscription models are fine if you're actually playing the game properly - but I do agree that a subs AND a shop is mildly taking the piss tho...

p.s. when I'm playing an MMO I tend to lose interest in most other games anyway - £330 represents my total spending on games for that period really - that's £165 a year - I'm nowhere near that now, hell I spend £65 on the Steam Summer Sale ALONE!

17-08-2012, 09:07 PM

WoW reports 'played days' for each character - totally 250-odd across my various toons. That's spread over somewhere between 25 and 30 months of subscription (counting free months and other stuff) and almost 4 years of real time.

But yes, I played WoW for 250 actual days over around 750=800 days in total - that is 6-8 hours a day - yes. In my defense, I used WoW as a chat client for a long time AND I developed mods which often meant leaving myself logged-in for long periods - but yes, I played it a lot...

There were always people there when I logged-in and still there when I logged-out :)

I'm not sure. I'm using the Uplay client to play it and am online all the time, so personally it doesn't really matter to me, either. I'm not really going to be playing much unless I'm playing multiplayer, so the online only thing doesn't really get in the way.

Although I'm online all the time too, just lately my connection has been dropping occasionally - it reconnects promptly, but if the DRM would quit the game or lock me out of features (which is what I believe Anno 2070 does) then I'm not sure I could see the point in me buying it, which is probably a shame...

If you only buy FA, you can't use the original 3 sides in multi/skirmish/etc modes. What you want is to install and play FA on the same GPGnet account as your SupCom key. FA is the superior game, but it needs the original's key too in order to be complete.

Sounds like the sort of thing people who are crap at a game will use as an excuse for losing a lot :)

I've had races which were utter nailbiters, races which were a stream of glorious overtaking manoevers and games which were frustrating disasters - but when it really gets into it's groove, it offer a fantastic experience (on par with early Burnouts) IMO

I'm not sure what some people expect from AI drivers - do they want a game where the AI simply allows them to make mistakes and keeps out of their way or do they want someone to actually race against?

RRU's AI racers are a mixture of 'mobile chicane' and 'punishment when you crash' - it's a "you start at the back" racer tho, and they've always worked like that surely???

It's an indie wargame. The key word being wargame. I don't see it getting cheaper any time soon.

There are plenty of folks in strategy circles who speak very highly of UoC. $15 might be a bargain for what you can get out of it. Tritagonist 19-08-2012, 12:14 PM Supreme Commander bundled with Supreme Commander: Forged Alliance is the daily Steam deal for just €3,74. I'm quite terrible at this game, but have played it a couple of dozen hours nonetheless. Probably due the nice amount of available sea and air units, a not uncommonly overlooked part of RTS games. The sequal Supreme Commander 2 is also on sale for €3,74 over at GamersGate. It's a bit of a simplification of the first game, but in itself not a bad one. johnki 19-08-2012, 01:55 PM Driver San Francisco for a dollar/euro/pound on Uplay today. Forewarning though, I've been waiting an hour and a half and it still hasn't processed my order, nor have I received an order confirmation or the game. I didn't have this issue with the last few games I bought straight from Ubi though, so maybe they're just having a glitch in the system or a high volume of orders. EDIT: So I don't know why, but it took like 3 hours to get the game in my library. postinternetsyndrome 19-08-2012, 07:32 PM Bought it and haven't gotten my game either yet. Will give it a couple of hours, but it's not a good first impression of uplay pc. EDIT: Got it now, the delay was just a couple of minutes. Not too bad, but still disconcerting when uplay doesn't warn about it. johnki 19-08-2012, 07:39 PM Bought it and haven't gotten my game either yet.

Forgotten Sands for $2.03 unless they change it soon. LTK 20-08-2012, 11:53 AM Steam has a daily deal for The Misadventures of P.B. Winterbottom. It's €1 for me, so that probably makes it$1 and £0.70, are my guesses. It's a time-traveling platformer similar to The Adventures of Shuggy, only with a silent film aesthetic, from what I can tell. Be quick about it, there's only five hours left.

Edit: Holy crap this game has terrible performance. It runs at half speed almost 50% of the time. And no, that's not a game mechanic.

That might mean that they expected a lot of pre-orders and that it's not an instantaneous process.

Or maybe it means that while pre-orders are open, they're still getting the game fully ready for an open beta for pre-orderers. That's quite the step up from their current beta, I'd imagine.

Why is this a reason not to do it if he thinks the game looks great?

Even if it is more than a month away, he'll get his beta access to a game he wants to play and then he'll get the game he wants after it?

It's not like it's going to get a better price on steam between now and release

I would urge everyone to take everything Spider says lightly, Because NDA's are for a reason. (Such as keeping people from slagging off the game while its still having issues ironed out in alpha/beta.)

21-08-2012, 07:58 PM
All of Total Biscuit's gameplay videos (and gushing) sounds like "It is the M&B combat system". So that kind of gets me happy. Mostly it looks like there are still a few bugs and none of the leveling or stats system has been worked in.

But Spider, how much more can you tell us? If there isn't an NDA, what are your issues with it? Because i know a LOT of people who would argue M&B is also not fit for a release. Let alone 3 :p

Wheelz
21-08-2012, 09:00 PM
Their is an NDA which he's breaking by discussing the game here. (I've also been in the alpha & beta).

Edit: Bargin spotted, Amazon have War of the Roses for $27 ($3 cheaper than steam in my area), And if you bought the pint-sized-paradox pack I think they're giving you an extra 6 off. (I got an email that was talking about me buying mount and blade, but the order number refered to the pint-sized paradox pack, so it might just be a mistake.) Spider Jerusalem 21-08-2012, 10:18 PM I would urge everyone to take everything Spider says lightly, Because NDA's are for a reason. (Such as keeping people from slagging off the game while its still having issues ironed out in alpha/beta.) they should take it lightly anyway because it's a person's opinion on the internet (and i'd feel a lot better about that nda defense if this game wasn't coming out in 6 weeks). as is, it's a grindy unlockfest. the game progressed tremendously from alpha to beta, but the unlock system is the worst of the worst at the moment, with all the useful and/or overpowered abilities at the top (and waaaay at the top). maybe they'll change it, maybe they won't, but at the moment, it takes a very large time investment to be able to play the game with any sort of options open to you. also if their nda doesn't apply to totalbiscuit giving them good press, i'm going to ignore it as well in the interest of sharing a dissenting opinion. perhaps that makes me a dick, but given paradox's history (and fatshark's history), i'd caution people who think they're getting a highly polished, fine tuned mp game on release date. All of Total Biscuit's gameplay videos (and gushing) sounds like "It is the M&B combat system". So that kind of gets me happy. Mostly it looks like there are still a few bugs and none of the leveling or stats system has been worked in. well, i think totalbiscuit is a bit of a dunce and generally disagree with him on lots of things, but it's nothing like the mount and blade combat system. there are "abilities", like a speed rush, that are just a bit silly (and you end up waiting for cooldowns, which is gross in my opinion), and there's none of the weight that m&b's combat has. they added better hit markers which was helpful, but at the moment, the game is more about what you've unlocked than your skill level. i fancy myself a decent crpg player (the m&b mod that is, not the genre) and i was able to do fairly well as a level nothing, but eventually you'll run up against two or three lvl 40s or so and they'll just simply have things that you can't counter. even in crpg, as a lvl 1 with a wooden sword, if i could block well enough, i could survive. in wotr (at the moment), even if i perfectly blocked someone for ages, they could just use an ability to stun me and then have their brutal way with me. it might be what some people want, and what some people like, but as someone who came to wotr looking for an extension of mount and blade, it wasn't there for me. i'm not saying don't buy the game (or maybe i did), but i'm saying there are real problems with it aligning with m&b, and they seem to be fundamental design decisions that are locked in at this point. Wheelz 22-08-2012, 12:12 AM I understand your complaints, and I have similar thoughts, but my understanding is that the developers will be rebalancing the unlocks shortly. I think it's unrealistic to expect battlefield quality from them (their's only 6 people on the development team), But I'm sure it'll run fine and be balanced on release. And the amount of progress they made between alpha and beta is what's got me hopeful the game will release ok, if however it gets to a week before release and their still appears to be major issues then I'll feel differently. I can't comment on the difference between Mount and Blade and WoTR, as I havn't played Mount and Blade.

You are severely deluded if you believe Spacechem is either pretentious or artsy. It also has absolutely no resemblance to a train-set game. We have train simulators for those. Spacechem is unlike any game in existence. It's an unforgivingly difficult, open-ended, algorithm-based puzzle game. If you don't like it because it's difficult and not fun, fine.

Spacechem really isn't a poncy game like, for example, Braid is. The chemisty thing is just to try and provide some context as to what's going on in the puzzles, but it could easily be replaced by something else. Any pretentions can be attributed to the fans who go out and do (admittedly kind of cool) things like showing the game can be used to create a computer. This is just peopel playing in the sandbox mode, whereas the game itself it a really great puzzler where there are often many solutions to each level but only some are half-way efficient and only a few are more efficient than what 95% of people did (the game shows how your solution stacks up to those of other people).

But my point is that they really shouldn't have an issue with it. No one's making them buy or play it, and there's nothing they can do to make them not exist, often alongside the "good releases" in the list. Personally, I like Ultima IX. I get that people take issue with it because it's not an RPG, and it's not totally canonical. I get that. But it's still a decent game, now that all the bugs are patched out. Nothing groundbreaking, but good, nonetheless. And there's really no reason they should be offended by the fact that it's there. EDIT: Personally, I don't like Fallout 3. It turned a classic RPG into something that it just shouldn't be. I don't get offended when I see people selling Fallout 3. Casimir Effect 23-08-2012, 10:19 PM But my point is that they really shouldn't have an issue with it. No one's making them buy or play it, and there's nothing they can do to make them not exist, often alongside the "good releases" in the list. Personally, I like Ultima IX. I get that people take issue with it because it's not an RPG, and it's not totally canonical. I get that. But it's still a decent game, now that all the bugs are patched out. Nothing groundbreaking, but good, nonetheless. And there's really no reason they should be offended by the fact that it's there. Yes but the internet.

Not a gaming bargain, but one of today's deals at http://www.scan.co.uk/todayonly/index.aspx is a Logitech G9x mouse and a fancy keyboard, for £45. That's the mouse I have and it's fricken awesome and I've had it for years without any faults or issues.

I know nothing about the keyboard, but that would be a good price for the mouse alone.

I don't get why it would work either way. If you're selling it to half your userbase at that price, why not sell it to all of them?

It sucks though because it's not even like you can just buy it from the foreign store. You have to buy it from your country's store.

Sorry, should have chosen only part of the post I was responding to. Although you don't need the answer anymore, I'll answer anyway. I tried to create a GameFly UK account with my main email address but the store detected there was already an account. So I logged in with my GameFly US account and now the UK site keeps redirecting me back to my own shores. I suppose I could create a whole new account for the UK store with a virgin email address, but since I found the US discount code I didn't see a point.

Am I the only one who sees "preorder a season pass for all the DLC!" and reads it as "wait for the GotY?"

No. I did the math on the alteration to Max Payne 3's season pass, and if my understanding was correct (based on the information available at the time) it was rendered a significantly shittier deal after the DLC consolidation. The discount changed from 35% off to ~17% off, but they still list it as a 35% savings at $30. The full cost is either$36 (if Local Justice was purchased during the first week after launch) or $38. I had no interest in season passes to begin with, but if the number of DLC they contain is mutable and dependent upon the success of a game, wowsers are they a stupid purchase. I've already pre-ordered Borderlands 2, but I'm comfortable waiting eons to buy DLC, if ever. Edit - burp, unrelated: It was my understanding that the Plentiful Paradox pack (http://www.amazon.com/Paradox-Interactive-41051dox-Package1-Plentiful/dp/B0085CD7BE) was going to be on sale until 9/3 (mostly interested in SotS).

I guess not. Oh, Amazon, why do you not know how to use the expiration of a promotion as part of the promotion? I think it will be on sale again from the 3rd untill the 7th of september but at a slightly less awesome discount. It was mentioned in a cheapassgamer (or whatever it's called) link posted a few pages ago.

I eventually discovered they had more than one system, and the old site-centric downloader didn't work for recent stuff. If they provide a downloader exe per game, save and run those. IIRC, they have no options for where to save, but you can find and move the resulting folders afterward.

Waveform is the daily deal on Steam. You can get it for a fart and a half.

Also, Gamefly has for some reason blocked my e-mail address's domain - microsoft's @live.nl - from any more purchases. So that means no Quantum Conundrum for £2.00. Screw those guys.

I love Waveform - it's the only game I've played in YEARS which actually re-wired my brain to accept a new concept (of fitting your Waveform around the obstacles).

It's so unique and so smart it hurts - there's a TONNE of content and the author is awesome because he threw the DLC in 'free' for everyone who bought it on-or-around release!!

If you don't have it - GET IT

As long as it's not about constructing Fourier series by hand on the fly... :S

Are you saying they're boring and that Fourier knew nothing about good game design? I say, reconsider your words, sir. And check out the DLC, "Transforms from the Time Continuum". :)

I don't know, is it good eigenvalue for money?

No. Stop it. Stop it right now. That man and his fucking transforms, integrals and domain have been abusing me on a daily basis for the better part of the last 8 years. I'm only a few tilde signs and exp[i.\omega.t]'s away from a full breakdown as it is.

Half-Life 2 is 2'5€ on Steam (Daily Sale). Well worth it, in case somebody doesn't own it yet.

EDIT: Sorry, 2'38€.

Looks like a quick back-up as it was ORION: Dino Beatdown with a 50% off sale when I checked it just after 19:00 local time. Given the resounding 4/10 Metacritic score, it doesn't seem anybody is missing much.

Both Game of Thrones games are in a bundle on steam for 23 dollars. I have little interest in the strategy GOT game, but I'm still happy I didn't bite during that Amazon 1/2 off sale on the RPG as this is a much better deal (plus, I'm a big enough GOT fanboy that I'll probably end up playing the strategy game anyway).

Sword and Sworcery is one of Steam's midweek deals, half-off at 3 euro. It's an adventure game ported from iOS, with very simple controls as a result, but with an unusual plot. I really enjoyed it. It can easily be played in a day, so if you're someone who resents spending money on short games, I guess it's not for you. (I got it in a bundle, so it was an easy decision.)

Well, given that your progress in the game depends on the cycles of the moon, you probably won't finish it in one day. Unless you discover one of the ways to bypass the time requirement.

I quite enjoyed it myself. It's excellent for a mobile port, which means it's definitely worth the €3 they're asking. It even includes the soundtrack, which is also outstanding.

Seems you can pre-order X-COM (the strategy one) for £29.99 from Greenmangaming (http://www.greenmangaming.com/s/gb/en/pc/games/strategy/xcom-enemy-unknown/). But, using the code in this post (http://blog.greenmangaming.com/2012/09/new-to-gmg-september-5th/) you can get it for £22.50 til 10/09/12. Not sure it will be anywhere cheaper either before launch or perhaps even for awhile afterwards. It registers on Steam.

Yes, but there's an in-game workaround for that, so it depends on which way you want to play. It is structured episodically, though, so if you're trying to stretch it out, it's easy to do so.

thanks for spotting this. I'm very seriously tempted to stick in a pre-order, that hour long gameplay video posted last week (http://www.rockpapershotgun.com/2012/08/29/enemy-yours-watch-an-hour-of-the-xcom-remake/#more-121893) has me wanting to get my hands on it as soon as I can. Good price on GMG but will wait to see if appears on Gamersgate and get it there with the IGN discount.

Damn this is due to come out the same week (same day?) as Dishonored I think. I'm going to need a take a day off work. Make that a week.

I haven't actually watched the video... Once I know I am going to buy something I stop watching.

I thought about waiting for Gamersgate too - but then I remembered that the IGN discount is only 15%, and the bonus blue coins were unlikely to add up to the difference in price.

Gamersgate has R.U.S.E. on a 70% discount, sadly they normally have it at 19,99 euros (instead of the 9,99 it is on steam) so it still is 6 euro, unlocks on steam.
