Toki Tori
Edge
2x 10% discount codes for Toki Tori 2+

Beat the Average (currently $2.47)
Rush
10% discount code for Toki Tori 2+
Bonus concept art and digital poster.

Toki Tori seems to be a cute little platformer/puzzle type game.
Edge is a cube puzzle game.
Rush appears to be like Edge, just better graphics.

I'm placing my sale dreams in the hands of Steam and the mighty GG Swedes. Amazon's summer sale has been pretty crappy: few AAA games, lots of shovelware and GMG isn't exactly bringing on the heat. Although I did buy the Tropico 4 pack for $6 after coupon, credit and trade-in from some crap free games. I know there was the Tropico indie bundle before but I wanted the Modern Times and Quick-Dry Cement DLCs with it.

Speaking of, I wish GMG was discounting DLC and not just bundles. A few things I would have bought if it was discounted DLC but I wasn't about to re-purchase the core game (XCOM, Mafia II).

Well I randomly got a Anodyne Booster pack, No foils but they were selling for 50 cent and 75 cents respectively not bad. Weird part is I wasnt playing any games at the time and I definitely wasn't playing that one.

According to the rules you can randomly get a booster pack for any game you've qualified in, you only have to log into your Steam account once a week to stay qualified.

GMG stopped applying their 25% pre-order coupon to Saints Row IV.

With my 20% off at GamersGate plus the blue coin kickbacks, I can get it for $37.75 which is 25¢ more than the GMG price. Just letting folks know in case someone was looking to play it on launch day (Aug 20th?)

Too busy playing FFXIV, missed it.

I still think I can get them for 10 dollars total soon... 75% off doesn't seem that out of the question.

$4 for Ghost Recon: Future Soldier is a silly low price. FC3 and AC3 are a good price Hitman and Sleeping Dogs have both been about that price on the US market. Deus Ex has been cheaper. I Am Alive is a terrible, terrible game.

All the GMG 666 Deals are active for 30 hours. Including BL2+Season Pass for 14.99, Not sure what coupons are active though...

Edit:
10% voucher - GMG10-VTTCS-VYH18

So you can get BL2+Season Pass for $13.50
And XCOM EU + DLC for 11.70 or so.

So here's a question. I bought the BL2 pack, for the Season Pass. I already own BL2.

GMG doesn't label which key is which.

Can I add these to Steam as gifts or something, and then gift the SP to myself?

If I remember correctly, if you try to enter in the code for a game you already own it will block you and let you know that you own it. Anyway, common sense would have the main game as the first code, and the season pass as the second one.

Hmmm. If you try to add something you already own, doesn't it fail and tell you? (Not 100% sure... I think I tried to add a key I already redeemed once and it warned me then).

In mine, the DLC was the first key and the game was the second, but I think that is because they were in an alphabetical or reverse alphabetical order. Cause I bought XCOM and one DLC was first, then the Game, then the second DLC....

Turns out GMG doesn't have common sense.

I was hesitant to try it, because I've heard of Steam accidentally voiding keys this way before. Meh, whatever.

If anyone is interested, I have a BL2 key I'm not using.

According to Reddit, it started on July 4th. Smiley: lol

I have difficulty believing Steam would send an email confirming the start date in a support email.

That said, I'd also be surprised if it didn't start tomorrow. It has always started on a Thursday, and if it doesn't start tomorrow, it'll be the latest start date for the sale yet.

Good thing I have a long weekend to not play all the new games I'm going to buy. Smiley: laughSmiley: laughSmiley: laugh

Supposedly there was no weekly sale this week either which makes people confident for this week.

I don't follow the Steam regular sale schedule well enough to know if the absence of a weekly is relevant.

Amazon summer sale was hella lame, GMG was pretty weak and GG hasn't had anything much yet. Unless Steam busts out with amazing sales, I'm going to be able to make a solid dent in my backlog before the winter sale season.

The excitement around the SSS was never getting stuff on your wishlist, it was getting a whole bunch of stuff that wasn't on your wishlist for a great price.

Take your reason elsewhere.

I wish I had that willpower. My problem is that I never have any clue what I'm going to want to play, and a strong desire to stretch my gaming budget as far as it will go.

I have 71 games in my Steam library (with my most-played games, meaning Mass Effect and Dragon Age, being in Origin).

Some of them I'm slowly working through, like Torchlight and Trine. When I finish the originals, I'll install the sequels (which I already own). Others I'll play more typically, once I get to them.

Of course, this would work a lot better if I'd stop replaying games. Right now, I'm going through FFXIII (mostly because I just bought FFXIII-2, and might buy Lightning Returns). But I've played a lot of Dragon Age. And I've run through Mass Effect 2-3 times now (though only played ME3 once so far).

Downside of playing a lot of RPGs, I guess.

I can't be assed with having a bunch of different accounts to buy games all over the web for 2 dollars cheaper. Besides the security concerns with personal info at yet another WeGamesU.ru. So I mostly use Steam since its convenient and the majority of my games are there. Except for when EA is a dick and takes away ME and DA so I have to use never to be bothered with again Origin.

I do support the competition these new sites bring to the market to drive down overall prices though.

So yeah, looking forward to summer sale!

To each their own. No one here listing deals from shady Russian key scan merchants or anything. GMG, Amazon & GG are all good sized legitimate merchants. For that matter, so are Gamestop, Gamefly, etc.

Having accounts doesn't bother me. I suppose I could make a legitimate argument for all the $2 and $3 savings adding up but, really, I just enjoy the metagame of getting the best price. Or the times when I get a substantial saving.

I might actually buy a game from one of those other places someday. Smiley: tongue

No offense taken.

One place where the other places can shine is pre-orders and new releases. If you're looking to play something on release or soon after it's very easy to find a better deal than Steam (who usually isn't discounting it at all) and 20% or 25% off a $60 game is enough money to take notice. If you want something right away, you might as well at least not pay full price.

The nice part of Dota 2 is that EVERYONE starts off terrible, and continues to be terrible for months. But the matching system does a decent job of putting you with other terrible people, so you don't notice just how bad you are. Smiley: grin

It's also sufficiently different from LoL that you might like it more. Or less. I was just reading an article yesterday that was trying to break down the differences between the two games from an experiential stand point. Lemme see if I can find it... Success.

At the end of the day, I'd say the skill curve is much steeper with Dota 2. But since I think it does a better job of matching people than LoL does, I find that the experiential skill curve seems kinder. It doesn't really matter that you suck if the game is reliably placing you with other player who suck a relatively similar amount.

They're different enough that there's plenty of reason to end up preferring one over the other.
