Video Game Deals Catch-All

Well I wasn't sure if you were being serious as I couldn't find the "Requires Steam Client to activate." bit.

Thanks! I knew that was around somewhere, just couldn't find it. And that reminds me, I have $10 in video credit from Halo 4. Time to watch a movie!

Yeah but be careful with the video game one. It's not broken down between promotions.

Like a couple games gave a $9.99 credit for 2 F2P games starter packs, and multiple copies. So I have like $60 of that, but 0 of promo credit left.

Spec Ops: The Line is showing up as on sale at $7.49 as part of the Editor's Choice list, so the $5 credit applies here. Seems like as good a price as any. Activates on Steam according to the product details.

Ah, was wondering why mine was coming up a lot more than what I had. Like I know I've only got $10 promo credit, yet it was saying $35.

Definitely worth picking up at that price: it's solidly made, has a meaty if grim story, and a very good sense of place. Plus you can blast through it in about 5-6 hours.

Huh. My number seems awfully high. I think there are some special-purpose promos in there that aren't broken out.

And when did I pick up an MP3 credit?

Hotline: Miami back up to $7.49. I really wish I could break down the promo credits I have, I have $62 in promo credit but no idea why

On almost every Amazon game purchase I've made recently, I've gotten a heap of emails with promo credits for items in various F2P games (Airmech is the only one I remember offhand). So I've used two of my November/December promotional $5 creds (Dark Souls and Amalur), but it still shows me with $82.49 in VG credits. I'm guessing at least $77.50 of that is specifically for crap that I have absolutely no interest in.

Yeah, I have the same issue. There is almost $80 in credits showing on my account, but I think that I only have two of the $5 credits and the rest must be all F2P bonus garbage.

Does anyone actually play Airmech and those others? I suppose I could redeem the credits and hand out the keys. I am utterly hopeless in MOBA games so there's no point in my even registering an account with them.

Is anyone interested in a copy of Darkness II? I'm happy to trade a code I have for it for something. It's part of my Amazon promotional credit, but I've got no interest in it and don't really want to spend more "real" cash on games this winter.

Darn, I could have saved 2.50. I bought I in the pack and already had both bioshocks.

Hmmm, tempting (but my pile!). What kind of trade would you suggest?

The Thief Collection is on Steam Sale for the next 42 hours for $6.74.

I never played Thief and Thief 2, heard they were good - should I pop on it?

Check out all of the mod support to make them pretty/playable on today's hardware. This series is continually brought up by people sighing over games they loved. I'm determined to give them a shot.

Sine Mora is $2 at GMG after coupon GMG20-PJFEW-Y16HK.

Steam key.

Kind of interested, but haven't really seen much other than brief mentions of the game.

I've got it. It's a fun and really pretty side scrolling shooter. The bosses are really interesting and impressive. And it's not a "bullet hell" kind of shooter so it's not crazy, which I prefer. And there are various types of planes to pilot. I spent about 2 bucks on it and I think it's worth it.

The story is really intense but all the voice acting is in Hungarian. And honestly, the game is too visually impressive for me to care about the story. There is a lot of text to read, and I just didn't bother.

One downside though is that in story mode the cutscene type of interruptions are just outside the line of being annoying. Not game killing, but it gets frustrating at times. Arcade mode fixes that.

What maverickz said. If you like shmups (in particular the left-rightly variety), this is a no brainer. If you're not into shmups or only like super fast ones, this won't sell you on the genre.

Catherine is again $19.99, this time on Newegg. Free shipping.

Two of the most unique, never-duplicated, well-loved video games of all time for less than the price of a sandwich?

This.. this is not a question that should be asked. The question is "I never played Thief and Thief 2, how many hour straight should I spend playing them?" And the answer is, all of them.

All of the hours? I've never played them, either.

Well then, glad I did pop and buy the bundle...

Well done. I did not see you approach.

I used to play Thief on my Pentium II 366Mhz. It was awesome.

I still have it in the box.

I ALREADY HAVE THEM BUT I CAN'T PLAY THEM GAAAAAAAH

That was meant for folks who hadn't played them yet.

JILL, NO EXCUSES!
