Video Game Deals Catch-All

speaking of XCOM, GMG are running 60% off right now, potentially the 20% code works with it too, but I haven't checked.

Whoa -- AirBuccaneers is now in the Groupees Be Mine Anniversary Bundle. That means you can buy the game for as little as one dollar. Bundle ends February 27th.

Edit: Full bundle game list:

Minimum $1
- Eschalon Book II (Steam)
- iBomber Defense Pacific (Steam)
- Livalink (Greenlight)
- Party of Sin (Steam)
- Major Mayhem
- AirBuccaneers (Steam)
- Dungeons: The Dark Lord (Steam)

Minimum $5
- Men of War: Assault Squad (Steam)
- Two Worlds 2 (Steam)
- Edna & Harvey: Harvey's New Eyes (Steam)
- Planets Under Attack (Steam)
- The Cat Lady (Greenlight)
- and some soundtracks

Well I'm definitely in for Eschalon by itself.

Actually, too bad those aren't Steam Linux games... especially since there are Linux versions...

Got it. It hits lower than 20$, which was my price to instant buy it.

So a ton of the Serious Sam games are on sale on Steam currently. I was never a fan, but they are so discounted now, I may as well try one. Is there a title that Serious Sam aficianados would say is best?

I've played them all, though I never finished SS2. I'd stick to the HD versions, as I believe the first two are remakes of the originals, but don't quote me on that. But both of them were good, simple shooters.

I picked up SS3 BFE a few days ago and I have to say it's pretty good, probably the best of the three. The gameplay is solid, the melee combat is a nice touch, it has very forgiving system requirements--it runs great on my nearly five-year-old laptop. There are Steam cheevies too, if you're into that kind of thing.

That said, the SS series is very shallow. You have to be in the mood for just blowing through levels shooting everything that moves. Not a lot of story or varied gameplay. But if you like early FPS's where life was simple, you might enjoy them.

Serious Sam really shines in (local, if possible) co-op (2 is good, 3 is better, 4 is more awesomer, 5...never managed 5) with the enemy count turned WAY up.

I had the most fun with the First Encounter. The Second Encounter is more of the same, but oddly didn't click with me quite as well. Perhaps the sheen wore off a bit. SS2 I played through with a buddy in a single all-night sitting when it released, and never went back. It was fun, but probably the low point in the series. Have yet to fire up SS3BFE, but I think about it frequently.

The HD remakes are pretty good lookers and still play great.

Dell is selling 4000 MS Points for $40.

Digital delivery of code...

Link comes up as $50. Did I miss it? Need to stock up for Bandfuse DLC.

Given that it was $40 when I left work, I'm thinking you missed it.

Amazon's running an end of February sale with a one use per customer code for an extra 25% off: "CAGROCKS".

I've not had a chance to peruse all the sales, but it seems several of the deals aren't as good as they have been before.

I did see Dead Space 1&2 for $8, and then 25% off looks on top of that would be pretty good.

Hehe, when I first saw that, I thought it said Crag Rocks

Max Payne 3 is there for $14.99, dropping down to $11.25. Tempting....

Steam has the Gratuitous Space Battles Complete Pack for £3.49 ($4.74) - DLC is usually £3.99-£4.99 each.

Pack includes:
- Main Game
- The Nomads DLC
- The Order DLC
- The Swarm DLC
- The Tribe DLC
- Galactic Conquest DLC

I got the main game in a bundle and enjoyed it and I've been meaning to pick up the DLC for a while but it was always too expensive to buy them individually, this seems perfect.

Isn't GSB Free To Play this weekend too? Like you, I already had the base game from a bundle, but it's silly to not re-buy just to get all the DLC for so cheap. Wish I could gift off the "spare" copy of the base game

Apparently all the DLC I'm missing is The Nomads and Galactic Conquest. I remember reading that the Galactic Conquest mode was kinda half-baked. Did that ever improve with patches, or is it worth skipping that one?

On some social network which shall remain nameless, you can press the "like" button. So I definitely "like" this (I literally lol'ed).

Also, Plants Versus Zombies is free in the App Store this week.
