As soon as you click "play game" and the install box appears, the license is added to your account and you get earned card drops.

Oh, and a while ago Steam added the ability to Remove Free 2 Play licenses from your account, from the account page. I tried it just because, and removed Defiance from my list, and then reactivated it.

I did NOT get another set of card drops :(

So, only $0.20, but a true free $0.20 (5 cents per card after fees).

The Square Enix Humble Bundle seems to have quietly added the additional beat the average games. I didn't get an email about it.

Hitman Blood Money
Hitman Contracts
Just Cause
The Last Remnant

BTA price is also up to 8.91 now.

The only Humble Bundle email I got yesterday was the Week Long Square Enix sale. Nothing about the unlocked games (and I bought the bundle).

The Humble Store has Final Fantasy III (Steam) for 50% off (7.99). Lowest that has been. And being one of the JRPG titles, they don't usually go much lower. FFVII and FFVIII are also up there for 50% off (5.99 each) but it's been there before.

Edit:
Oh, haha... they snuck it in on the bottom of that email. "But Wait, There's More"

And it says that the Final Fantasy titles were available for 75% for a limited time, but I didn't see them.

I saw Bundle Stars had Shadowrun Online for 67% off ($9.99)

It's an Early Access game, and while the name sounds like an MMO, it sounded to me more like a smaller online multiplayer game. But if you are interested in it, I think this is a decent price.

JShackles, the guy behind Enhanced Steam, has a program out called "Idle Master" that will automate card idling. I haven't played with it yet but the gist is that you run it and it'll idle a game until there's no card drops left then move to the next game, etc. I assume it works on the same principle as SAM but, again, I haven't poked around at it yet. It looks as though it takes some tinkering to get going and it more complex than just clicking SAM icons and I'm home sick and a little foggy so unwilling to try and tackle it.

The Amazon Free App O' the Day is Steve Jackson's Sorcery! which is a sorta Choose Your Own Adventure/RPG hybrid. Folks seem excited about it and it's usually five bucks so why not get it for free?

I'm in if two others are interested.


I think GMG currently has 25% off the Gauntlet game, maybe the 4 pack too. That's $11.25 each.
Coupon code WAT399-HZSWBT-IWXJWB

Edit:
Verified that it works with the 4 pack, 45 dollars.

Wing Commander III is free from Origin until Sept 2nd.

Most I know about it was a Cracked reference the other day that you can turn Luke Skywalker into a surly drunk by failing out of wing commander flight school or something.

I might have a Steam Key for Rush for Glory, not 100% sure if it's been used or not. It's from Groupees, I opened my page to see if I had a key yet for a new game and noticed it without the "used" tick box, but dunno if I just forgot to tick it after I gave it away.

Also, new Humble Bundle has Incredible Adventures of Van Helsing: Complete Pack for a buck with Deadlight & Galactic Civilizations II: Ultimate Edition.

BTA is more "meh" currently at $5.61 for Terraria, King of Fighters XIII and Crusader Kings II (plus 3 DLC). not bad games but I assume everyone who wants it already owns Terraria and CK2 by now.

X:com EW on sale again, but still only 67%. Waiting for the 5 dollar line. Will probably take a base price reduction to get that low, unless GMG gets it up for 80% off base with additional coupon, but I doubt that will happen.

If for some reason you wanted to play it but haven't bought it yet, EA is having a sale on all things Titanfall until Monday.

Titanfall - $19.99
Titanfall Digital Deluxe - $35.99
Titanfall Season Pass - $17.49
Titanfall Expedition - $7.99
Titanfall Frontier's Edge - $7.99
The Final Hours of Titanfall - $1.99

All on Origin of course.

Steam is also having a 2K sale, Civ games, Bioshocks, and X-coms for the most part. Since everyone here likely has Steam, I won't bother listing the prices, but they're not terrible, not amazing either.

Edit: Almost forgot, Dishonored is free to play this weekend on Steam. It's not very long, so you could easily finish it in that time. But if you don't want to binge play it, it's only $4.99 if you wanted to buy it.

I've only played Dishonored for the past week or two. It's pretty great, and I highly recommend it!

If you go quick, you'll be through in half a dozen hours, I'd guess. If you stealth and take your time or go for achievements/exploration... well, I've put about 35 hours into it so far and still have a bunch to go.

They also have a free 2 days of Titanfall thing going on, if people want to try it first. That's what I'm up to.

I'm meh about it. The mechs are just more annoying to me than cool, and wall jumping just made the levels way more 3D than I want them to be. It also seems like everyone is running a sniper or shotgun loadout because of it (at least, everyone who killed me was).

Some people seem to love it though, so hey, free trial.
