They also have a bundle that's Bioshock 1, Bioshock 2, and Spec Ops: The Line for $10. Which you'd be stupid to buy, because you can get a Bioshock 1 and 2 bundle for $5, so buying it with the Spec Ops/Darkness bundle gets you an extra game for 1 dollar less...


A dollar? A penny or two. 5(4.99?) and 4.99, compared to 10(9.99?)
I mean, still a better deal since you get another game, if you are after the games. But not a dollar less, pretty much the same price.

Edit:
I see, the coupon. Missed that. I assume it applies to other purchases too though? Or is it a coupon only for that single game bundle?

Stop it! You are forcing me to purchase games that I never had any interest in purchasing and that I may never play. You've neutered my ability to choose. I must buy them, simply because they are only $2.00 each!

Both are solid games. Darkness II has some nice art direction and some great voice acting and characters. Fun game play as well if you make a point of mixing it up: Don't just shoot people, whip some car doors at them or tear them in two.

SpecOps has pretty standard game play but the story is worth it. I don't know if it's as AMAZING as some make it out to be but it's definitely worth the experience.

Both are pretty short games. About 8-10 hours each, I believe. But for two bucks a pop, it's hard to complain.

Spec Ops is cool if you don't mind being viciously beaten over the head with "the point". But seriously, it's cool. It probably has a greater effect on certain demographic.

Yeah, I was reading about that. Seen some Console vs. PC warriors crowing about it but I don't know what it proves beyond "With a year's worth of feedback, you can make a better game next time around".

I thought all the cool kids played Torchlight anyway.

I might grab it for PS3, because I do have some friends who don't play PC games that I'd like to play some co-op with. I'd buy TL2 before buying D3, but TL2 doesn't seem to be coming out on PS3 at all.

Ah. I recently booted it up again for a bit. The only things they're really missing is structured PvP (if you're into that kind of thing), and an endless dungeon type of mode (which was never promised, but would greatly improve the game IMO). Anyway, if you were ever interested in it, I'd suggest holding out for the PS3 release. Many of the improvements they're making in it are not coming to the PC version. It might have been rather incomplete at launch, but in its current state I would consider it to be pretty complete (again, aside from the lack of PvP).

Oh, also, the PS3 version won't require you to always be online, and won't have an AH (though it will support a menu-driven trading system so you can trade with other players in your game, etc.). This also allows them to boost the item generation so you'll find more items that will be useful. Which is cool, because basically the biggest problem I ran into with D3 was that you weren't grinding in the hopes of finding an upgrade for yourself, you were grinding to find things to generate money so you could buy better gear on the AH. And item generation was obviously heavily influenced by the presence of an AH.

It's sad. I think I completely overhauled my level 60 characters' gearsets, replacing every piece. I was getting significant upgrades, mostly in the form of Legendaries, for 30-50k gold an item. When I checked out the RMAH, 1M gold was selling for $0.26. I guess I can still find some enjoyment on my HC characters, since there was no RMAH for HC, but the AH there is pretty well flooded at this stage, too. I would still like to clear Inferno on a HC character, though I don't think I'll try to get gear to clear MP10 Inferno, or grind to Paragon level 100.

Today's Steam Daily is Battlefield: Bad Company 2 for five bucks. No idea how the multiplayer is these days but the single player campaign was fun and easily worth the five bucks. Third person with AI squadmates with a good bit of humor and doesn't take itself too seriously. At the time I had played it right after SpecOps so it was an interesting juxtaposition of genres Smiley: laugh

It's not a well reviewed or well rated game but... you know... maybe someone here has too much time on their hands and too many dollar bills laying around.

I just read a rather compelling preview for a new game called "Don't Starve". It's made by the same folks that made "Shank" and "Mark of the Ninja". In the game, you start out with nothing and no idea what to do. Your basic goal is to survive, and most importantly, don't starve. It's a game of discovery. It tells you nothing, you basically have to figure it out on your own, and that sort of thing appeals to me greatly. Here's a trailer:



It won't be released until the 23rd, but can be preordered on Steam right now for $11.99. Preordering it gets you into the beta as well as getting you second giftable copy. Which brings me to why I'm here. I've got this extra copy just sitting here, and I don't know anyone that would be interested in it, which means it's up for grabs. Since BeanX hooked me up with Bioshock, he gets first dibs, if he's not interested, the first person who is can have it.

Ya, it's been out for quite some time (in... "Beta").

Some of their updates over the month kind of messed up the way people were playing the game. In addition to the Tree Guard, they added various other demons and enemies that attack you. It seems the designers basically did not want you to be able to bunker down and build a self sustaining camp.

Fell asleep watching TV last night, and forgot to share it, but GOG is having an oldschool D&D game sale-- up to 80% off for 10 games (each game you buy adds 10% off).

Baldur's Gate 1 & 2, Neverwinter 1 & 2, Icewind 1 & 2, Planescape, Dragonshard, Demon Stone, and The Temple of Evil.

Wish I had waited to buy Planescape, since it's one of the sale titles. But I had been waiting for Neverwinter and BG2 to go on sale, so.

I saw that and would've jumped on it but I already have all of those except Dragonshard and Demon Stone. I don't know enough about either of them to know if I want them or not.

Amazon also has Dead Island GOTY on sale 75% off ($4.99). Part of a promo deal for Riptide, buying the Dead Island GOTY edition gives you an 8 dollar credit for pre-ordering Riptide.

And, if you are into 1990s casual PC gaming, there is a Hoyle Bundle. Card/Board games for the PC.

I jumped all over this thinking $4.99 was a good deal. Apparently I had a gift card on Amazon which took $4.99 off at checkout.

$4.99 is the cheapest it has been (aside from a GG error where it was $3.99). So it's a good deal, gift card or no.

I know, that's why I chose to buy it. The 5 dollar gift card sitting there in Amazon was a bonus. I had forgotten about it. I can't claim to have gotten as good a deals as you have, but I'm very thrifty when it comes to gaming.
