Did the BTA on the Humble Bundle, and bought the Capitalism, Ho! game, as well as the other two from the same group (all were 75% off).

And selling a steam account seems like a risky deal for both parties...

In among the other stuff, RUSE with DLC is on sale for $4 from GamersGate today. It's been as low as $2.50 or so on Steam but that was for the base game only. I have no interest in it but some folks are saying it's a great deal if it's your sort of game.

Dammit, Joph. There went another $5 I probably shouldn't have spent. Sacred 2, Risen 2 and Dead Island might be worth it, though.

Been using my Steam account on my new laptop, and I noticed now that every time I start up on my Desktop or Laptop, that steam always does an update. Must be because I keep logging in from different devices?

No idea although I rebooted today and Steam updated so I'm thinking (this time) they just had a new version ready to be pushed.

Steam has Frozen Synapse on sale for $4.99 (80% off)
But if you buy the "Complete" pack you get the Soundtrack ($5.99 normal price) and DLC ($9.99 normal price), plus a second copy of Frozen Synapse ($24.99 normal price) to trade, all for only $6.99

So their 80% off complete bundle is actually closer to 90% off everything you are getting. $60.96 value for $6.99.

Oh, and it's a card game. 0.11 or so value cards, so not great, but if you sell them all that knocks 40 cents of cost. (kind of)

I got frozen synapse in a bundle for 5 bucks with a whole bunch of other games...

This thread has ruined me for normal pricing.

Also! Speaking of Bundles, the Humble Weekly Bundle is up with another show stopping group of mediocre games:

pay anything to get:
King's Bounty: Armored Princess
Men of War
Men of War: Red Tide

Pay more than the average to unlock
Men of War:Assault Squad
King's Bounty:The Legend

https://www.humblebundle.com/weekly

actually those Kings Bounty games look ok... hmmm

Armored Princess is pretty fun. Probably worth it for at least the really cheap option.

Sega is having a store sale. You can get Derpians: Colonial Derps for $4.99 if you're so inclined.

Also, Gamefly is having the same Quakecon sale as Steam except you can use GFDAUG20 for an extra 20% off.

They've been smart about making their back catalogue available for sale. For example they have worked with Nintendo to emulate game gear games on the 3DS

If you have a forum account at Cheapassgamers that's 90+ days old, you can get a beta pass for Skullgirls. Works until release (Aug 22nd).

I thought a couple of you did even if you don't actively post there.

I've been trying to keep up with Bing and farming an Amazon 5 dollar card for purchasing cheap Steam games.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like I can earn bing points for searching with a non-US IP address and I dont' care enough to try and find a proxy. I can do everything normally, but none of the searches count like they usually do. It was hard enough finding the link and setting to force Bing to stop redirecting me to it.bing.com and let me access the rewards page.

I wouldnt buy it for over 5 dollars, but that would only be for collecting purposes as I highly dislike FPS western fantasy games (Skyrim/Oblivion). Not everyone sees value in everygame. Hell I play more F2P games than games I paid for.

Yeah, but that's because you don't want the game in the first place.

Wanting it, but waiting the 1-3 years it'll take to drop to $9.99, is a little odd.

Ok, everyone stop buying any games not in a Humble Bundle.

Origin Bundle. Pay a buck or more for...
-- Dead Space
-- Burnout Paradise: Ultimate Box
-- Crysis 2: Maximum Ed.
-- Mirror's Edge
-- Dead Space 3
-- Medal of Honor

Pay over average (currently about $4.50 for...
-- Battlefield 3
-- Sims 3 + Starter Pack

Games activate on Origin (go figure) with a few that have Steam keys (don't ask me which).

Worth noting as well that EA is giving 100% of their cut to charity. So even if you have some vendetta against EA, you're not giving them your cash anyway.

I wonder. Do I get to redeem both Steam and Origin Keys? Or if I choose one will the option for the other disappear...

Time to test it out.

Edit:
Redeemed my Steam Keys, and it looks like I still have the option to get an Origin Key as well...

Edit2:
Origin's Code Redemption system is currently down. Probably swamped with Humble Bundle requests.
