    Hm, I'm tempted to finally get the "Thief" series ... What is the best digital version regarding stability, modability, fan patches etc.? Any significant differences between Steam and GOG?

    If have them on Steam, and, even though the first one doesn't work for me, the second one runs perfectly with the latest unnofficial patch. Regarding to the third one, I have only been able to run the tutorial level, but there are probably ways to make it work.

    Yeah I'd be happy to be part of that and get it cheaper if there's someone here with IGN discount who can buy from the US store. Any takers?

    So far we have @drumdramdrim and me for a four pack of Torchlight 2, need two more people.

    Yeah, there are fixes for Thi3f (oh god, what's wrong with me). I run it just fine. Just google something like "Thief 3 steam".

    Edit: Then again, I don't need two big-ass games right now, and the ones I want (MoW and Binary Domain) might be cheaper around xmas time on Steam. Am I strong enough?

    More Codemasters games being pulled from GOG: Perimeter and Soldiers: Heroes of WW2. They're having a going away sale, however. Soldiers is still available on Steam, but it's also published by Codemasters and I don't know what the deal with them is, so it may or may not be safe. Gamersgate has Perimeter Emporer's Testament, which is an expandalone, but it doesn't look like anyone has the original Perimeter.

    Edit: Apparently Soldiers was just a daily deal on Steam, so it could possibly get pulled from there as well.

    Perimeter Emporer's Testament is probably fine with mp but it's single player is completely rubbish.

    I'll get Batman:AC and something else... Hmm

    4's quite solid as well (especially with the Trigger Maru mod) and has the added benefit that it doesn't make you play the Nazis.

    Hey, I'm sympathetic to the unfortunate non-Nazi Germans who got caught in a fascist state and all, but it's still fundamentally less enjoyable to go around sinking British and US ships on behalf of the Third Reich than it is to sink Imperial Japanese ships as an American IMO. That US subs were unreliable leaking rust buckets filled with dud torpedos actually makes the whole endeavor that much more entertaining, too.

    Getting the three thieves from GOG for $12 is a great deal.

    You might even say it's a steal.

    Awesome deal... but I only want Men of War: Assault Squad! Does this just give you Steam codes? I guess I could buy 2 games and give the other one to a friend.

    Remember not all the loaded games are steam. I think only stronghold and batman are you not though.

    I doubt anyone in Germany considered themselves a 'Nazi' - 'Nazi' is a derogatory term christened by us because of the name of their party - it's also the contracted form of the name 'Ignatius' which was popular in the more rural parts of Germany - so it's basically like calling someone a 'hick' in the US or a 'yokel' in the UK (all from QI and my cous who's a fanatical collector of WW2 German stuff :) )

    and then there's Das Boot to consider

    ALARM!

    for some reason I am pissed that I already own all the games in the deal. What is wrong with me? Why must I buy everything in front of me if it's got a sale sign on it? GAH!!
