[Steam] The Steam Deal Thread - Page 302

post #3011 of 3120
Witcher 2 is totally worth $30. I love that game.

I, however, am much more interested in finishing all the games I just bought. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood, Starcraft 2 (need to start playing multiplayer redface.gif), Battlefield 3, Deus Ex, Dragon Age: Origins... I still haven't finished Fallout 3 or New Vegas! I am so ashamed.
Unless I see a really sweet game go up, I doubt I'm going to be buying anything this time around.

1st bold : oh not that again rolleyes.gif

It's not about how much the game is truely worth. If i go by that standard i would have owned witcher 2 AND skyrim since launch. It's about how low it could get versus how long I can wait.

and I think my games will keep me occupied until at least spring, most likely summer or beyond, even EXcluding starcraft 2, a game that you just have to go back to once in a while. tongue.gif


2nd bold : thats exactly what I'll do. I'll only buy things that surprises me, however chances are low cuz I'm not a FPS fan.

The thing with steam sales it that the most we can normally expect for a game to get discounted of its 'normal price' is 75%. Very seldom does steam do more than that.

So it's pretty obvious most of the new games won't go down to 10 or below except if the bombed. Maybe we will see DNF for $5.

Witcher 2 was 24$ last Thursday, lowest I've seen. Was tempted to pick it up but later decided not to.

nope, steam sale sometimes do better than that, just probably not this time, cuz most of the "attractive titles" are only out recently.

witcher 2 was only $2x last time, but it was $16 at amazon. Steam *might* match that this time.

Also I wonder why I never see NFS titles on sale. Want some of them since I got a wheel now.

I expect a lot of $25-30 new titles this time around. GTA IV for $5 was not so long ago so that probably won't come. Maybe crysis series?

There were a few NFS games on sale during either the autumn or summer steam sale, can't exactly remember which one. The highest discount that I can remember from steam is probably "85-90%" off.

I've seen 85 myself. not sure about 90, might have seen it and forgot about it.


What NFS titles are good anyway..... I like mountain and street racing instead of tracks. Also japanese cars like the RX-7(FD-3S) and the GT-R series.

I used to own the old hot pursuit 2(or something like that), played the crap out of that thing, but that was a bit too repetitive with no story and stuff in today's standard.

I tried one game in the series, I forgot which one it was(its at least 5 years ago), but it's *probably* most wanted. I remember right from the start you control a BMW, its like backwards story telling or something. I actually like the setting of that one, you drive around the city taking quests and joining races I believe. But I ABSOLUTELY hate the car's physics. I think it was set to an extreme drift setting. Starting the car requires like 2 seconds of wheel spinning which was either a sign of bad keyboard support or the grip is just unacceptable in my standard.

I also tried prostreet. The ladder was kind of fun, but the focus of track racing isn't my cup of tea. Drag racing was also utterly pointless to me(personal opinion here). So that one didn't work out too well either.

Guesses ...

I'm looking for Prince of Persia stuff at 75% - it wasn't in the Autumn or Holiday Dailies, so it is kind of due.

75% on Bionic Commando Stuff - also due, maybe a bit less of a discount

Might be time for a Valve 75% and maybe more on the older stuff as a daily.

75% on Red Faction Armageddon and DLC (and other Red Faction stuff)

Maybe 60-66% on Rage. Could be 70% which would make it the sub-20* dollar new game for the sale.

Maybe 60-66% on L.A. Noire.

50% on the new Lords of the Ring game.

50% on Call of Juarez the Cartel (also a candidate for a sub $20 game since it faded fast, but it is Ubisoft).

50% on Space Marine.

50% on Deus Ex

50% on Red Orchestra 2

Maybe a 50% on Serious Sam 3

Maybe a 50% on Sonic Generations

Maybe a 75% on Hard Reset

Maybe a 75% on Payday The Heist

Maybe a 75% on the Haunted Hell's Reach

* - or sub $19.99
