BTW The Mighty Quest for Epic Loot Openhouse (Beta) starts tomorrow at 2 pm, It looks like Diablo +Rifts "dimensions". You raid other peoples houses to get gear/parts to make your house bigger with more baddies. You can setup a layout and get treasure from people that fail to complete your house. Its going to be F2P I believe and looks interesting enough for a test run.

I found out about it at E3

Edit: Opps I guess its invite only (Which makes no sense since its open house)

The DLC looks to be half off (less coupon) as well in case you own the base game.

Sword of the Stars: The Pit is on sale at GMG right now for $3.39, if anyone else is interested.

Also, I can't decide if 50% is worth it for the Skyrim sale right now.

On the one hand, it's a good deal. On the other, I feel like the Steam Summer Sale will at least match it, so waiting a few more weeks just in case is in my best interest? I'm not going to play them right away, in either case...

With coupon, it's 50+20% off. So more like 60% off the base price. Steam might have it for 66%... I wouldn't bet big money on it but they might. If you're just buying DLC, you're not talking much savings but if you're buying the base game or Legendary edition, it'd matter more.

I already have the base game, but none of the DLC. If I can use the coupon, I'm going to just go ahead and assume it's worth it. It doesn't even look like Steam has the legendary edition.

I'll take a guaranteed 60% over a chance for 66%.

Thanks for pointing that out; I completely missed it.

Have you bothered checking http://store.steampowered.com/ ?

Legendary Edition is even in the scrolling front page advertisements... and Skyrim requires Steam, so it'd be pretty strange if it wasn't on Steam.

Yup, I'm not crazy. It still doesn't show up if I just search Skyrim.

Dust: An Elysian Tail is 50% off as midweek madness bringing it to 7.49. Baulders Gate Enhanced Edition is 75% off bringing it to 4.99.

Im considering grabbing Dust it looks like an interesting game, but I have this nagging feeling it may be lower in the summer sale.

That's because it falls under the same page as the Skyrim result. If you click on Skryim, right below it it offers the Legendary edition.

BTW GMG came out with a press release:
Quote:
A message to all our GMG users:

Hi, I'm Paul Sulyok, Founder and CEO of Green Man Gaming. On behalf of the team here, I'd like to take a moment to apologise to all of you who experienced issues trying to purchase from GMG in the last 24 hours. The GMG 666 Sale promotion is proving to be much more popular than we initially anticipated - despite significantly increasing our capacity in preparation for the sale, we unfortunately still underestimated demand for the offers available.

To put this into perspective, GMG is currently running more than double the absolute highest traffic spike that we saw in 2012, and over 10x the normal traffic level that we have seen in 2013.

Clearly this is no excuse and so we've had the whole team working hard to increase capacity and remove barriers to you getting to our deals.

I am very aware that you may have missed out on some of the great deals we've been offering in the 666 Sale promotion. Rest assured we are working closely with our publishing partners to bring back some of the deals affected. We will post all information about these deals on our Twitter stream @greenmangaming and also on our Blog http://blog.greenmangaming.com.

Finally, as a small digital retailer trying hard to make our way in this market, we really appreciate your ongoing support and hope that we can welcome you back again very soon. Thanks and enjoy the rest of our Sale.

Paul


We might see the Borderlands 2 deal come back. Ill definitely grab it if it goes on sale again.

I wonder if that will mean even cheaper for the next buyers? It was only a 10% discount code when BL2 was up yesterday.
Right now there is a 20% discount code. If they still have a 20% code, that would make it 12 dollars instead of 13.50...

Some banks dont care some do. I had a bank even after i told them the site and I authorize it they STILL denied it. There is work around though. Have someone here buy it via Pay pal them the money. AKA Send to money via paypal to someone you trust (Using the debit card) then have them buy you the game and give you the key.

I've had a few posters here help me when my bank declined deals.

Company of Heroes 2 is ~$30 from Nuuvem. Nuuvem is a legitimate vendor site, but they're located in Brazil. Technically they're not supposed to sell outside S. America but they will, just like all the Europeans who buy digital games from Amazon. Easiest to pay with a bank account linked to Paypal.

Keys are legitimate Steam keys tagged as ROW ("Rest of World") which is the usual tag for non-Russian (RU) flagged keys.

Rotastic is probably a terrible game, but it's on sale for $1.99 at GMG and comes with a $2 GMG credit. +1 for the Steam catalog, anyway.

Current (new) GMG 6 hour Deals
2 dollar GMG credit or 1 dollar cash back on purchases

Prices have not factored in the credit/cash back. Looks like if you are after some of the smaller games, you can end up paying for one, and getting the rest for a huge discount (or "free") by using the GMG Credit.

 
Sniper Elite v2 + DLC           75% off           $18.23 
Rotastic                        80% off           $1.99 
Laxius Force                    75% off           $2.49 
Rush Bros.                      50% off           $4.99 
Worms Ultimate Mayhem           75% off           $3.74 
The Cave                        75% off           $3.74


Edit:
Apparently that Laxius Force is not only the game, but also handful of titles from the same Developer. Look to be a bunch of old styled RPGs.

Yeah, I bought Rotastic for $1.99 with $2 credit, used the credit to get The Cave for $1.75 then used the credit from that to get Sniper Elite (original) for 99¢ and still have $2 credit.

Not too shabby. You have to search to go to Sniper Elite directly; it's on sale for 70% off but it's not part of the Sniper Elite V2 page.

Oh, and the Spiral Groove bundle is a much better deal for Sniper Elite V2 if you want it. You can buy the DLC from GMG and daisy chain the $2 credits to get most of it for very cheap. I think the total for the base game and all DLC is something like $10 rather than $18 for the GMG bundle.

Current GMG deals include 75% off of Sam and Max episodes 1, 2, and 3. I didn't have 1 and 2, so I picked them up. The code was just 10% off.

There are a few others in there, nothing spectacular. All smaller titles. If you like point/click adventures, those Book of Unwritten Tales games are on the list.

GMG confirmed that giving out free games during a massive sale is @#%^ing dumb, announces no more free games for the duration of the sale. 25% off code no longer applies to 666 deals, new code is GMG10-VTTCS-VYH18 which gives 10% off 666 deals only.

Current deals are:

Lost Planet: Extreme Conditions - Colony Edition = $5
Judge Dredd: Dredd vs Death = $2.40
Sniper 2: Ghost Warrior = $7.50
Empire Earth 3 = $4
Jurassic Park: The Interactive Storybook Game = $7.50
Worms = $1.60

WotR cards are still nicely priced. 65¢ and up a card so far for me.

Amusingly, I have no idea when I got the game. It's a Paradox title so it must have been in one of those "20 Paradox games & DLCs for $9.99" Amazon bundles.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 is supposedly a great game for what it is. If you want a big rig simulator, it's golden. Of course, I have little interest in driving lorries around the European countryside.

GMG is offering Bioshock Infinite bundled with 3 other games.

Bioshock Infinite
Borderlands 2
XCOM: EU
NBA 2K13

$59.99 ($48.00 with the 20% off code).

Comes out to 12 dollars per game. I guess it works out ok if you don't have any of them. But I'm sure you could get better deals individually if you waited (or already got better deals before, like the 13.50 BL2+Season Pass).

The NoDRM sale at GOG ends tomorrow and the finale has a lot of game bundles and single games 50% off or more. Some sales of interest are:

FTL for $2.50
Hotline Miami for $3.33
Don't Starve for $10
Deponia 1 and 2 for $5 each (I remember someone was looking for them on sale)

Also Steam has a Left 4 Dead 2 free weekend going on, so if you don't have the game this would be the best way to farm the cards to sell.
