GOG still has their "Summer Indie drop" sale until tomorrow, which is Gemini Rue and Introversion games. I think I'll get Gemini Rue, which isn't even on sale independently on Steam ATM.

Gamersgate at the moment.
Yeah I could get KoA for £2 with the 20% voucher and £6 trade-in of earlier freebies MoW Red Tide and Disciples 2.
Though I'm saving my GMG credit and a voucher to pick up The Secret World for £26. Well I would do that if GMG's borked payment processing system would let me even get to the checkout, for some reason this game and this game only will not let me get past the basket to the payment selection screen without page errors. Lots of comments on their forums from people with similar issues on other transactions. I'm on my third go-around with their customer support for help, the problem's definitely at their end. Some of GMG's prices can be good but their site payment system is sometimes flaky and their customer support is slow and not very effectual. I am about to give up and pay a bit more to get it from GG.

Amazon is still having a little bit of a sale on Amalur. Here's some of the more constructive criticism I've seen:
1.0 out of 5 stars No Gnomes?, July 8, 2012
Thomas Patterson - See all my reviews
= Fun:1.0 out of 5 stars
This review is from: Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning (DVD-ROM)
Well I got this game on trial back when it came out. First and foremost, there are no short races to choose from, there's two stars gone.
So I figure I'll give it a shot as some tall obnoxious being for a bit and not even a few minutes in, there's Gnomes. Ok...if you are going to put Gnomes into the lore, and then refuse to make them a playable race, why not just put on the box that they discriminate against height? "oh look, there's gnomes, BUT YOU CAN'T BE ONE!"
so there's another two stars gone.
I'm not entirely against a game having no short races, such as Skyrim. However, they are not in the lore, nor are they alive and well and walking around anymore (dwemer).
But to not only not have a playable short race, but then to include a short race within your game and lore is just unacceptable.
EA lost 39.99 back when the game came out. As for the developers...I dislike your style of discrimination.

I was waiting on Amazon's $10 SR3 deal, but I was hoping to be able to hold off as long as possible in case I decided to pick up the THQ pack on Steam. I guess I have to make up my mind quickly.
With all the repeats, I imagine there's a fair chance that the season pass DLC pack will be back to $5 before the summer sale is over.

Fallout New Vegas Ultimate Edition - $10.19 at Gamestop
You have to install their software to get the Steam key.
I highly recommend this game, it's one of the gems of the last years.
To maximize your enjoyment of Fallout NV
1. Install the mods Project Nevada and New Vegas Bounties 1+2 (and the large community patch). They both add so much to the vanilla game without changing the core experience. I recommend them even for the first playthrough. They are similarly crucial like Stalker Complete Mods to the Stalkers.
2. Play the DLCs in the story-chronological order:
- Honest Hearts (which I found was the weakest one)
- Dead Money
- Old World Blues
- Lonesome Road

Gamersgate is having a pretty nice Anno sale this weekend. 1404/Dawn of Discovery Gold for $6, Anno 2070 for $20 (undercutting Steam's daily deal from earlier this week, and with one less DRM layer to boot). I can wholeheartedly endorse 1404 as a lovely little city builder, and I'll probably end up picking up 2070 for myself.

New Vegas Bounties likes to put you in scripted fights that almost always start with you right in front of a boss with a ridiculously high health and armor. It gives you very little wiggle room and I found it absolutely tedious.

It seems like it introduces an awful lot of changes ... I should probably do some research of my own.

Kind of off topic, but is there a must-have mod for FO3 in the same way that Project Nevada is?
Edit: Nevermind, looked it up and it would appear to be Fallout Wanderers Edition.

The Longest Journey is in the Flashsales of Steam at the moment. I would say get it from gog.com without DRM, but if you just want to have a sniff without being a huge adventure fan - get it! It's so cheap right now that you definitely take the shot. Such a great game.

vinraith, could you recommend some settings for FWE? I was meaning to replay FO3 recently and I never tried it with FWE.
19-07-2012, 07:45 PM #4799
Honestly, in the newest version I'm not even sure the setting options are the same as they were for me. I'm sorry I can't be more help, I need to replay it again sometime soon and see what the final version of FWE changed.

Thanks anyway. :)
That motorcycle sounds like way too much work for me, I'm lazy enough to like automagical fast travel.
I do like to play with the resources as scarce as possible though and I decrease the carrying capacity and the amount of health for everyone. This worked brilliantly for me in Nevada.
