Likely so...likely so......

Would it asplode before you could throw the contents of your wallet at it via kickstarter? I'm asking for a friend that's interested in running a kickstarter campaign.

With my last....breath...I throw my wallet...at theee....

I don't know what makes a good train game, but I've been on trains, and I've played Freelancer, so how hard could it be?

The group that made Ni No Kuni should make a game based on Galaxy Express 999. I always loved that series and it's trains... in space!

Keep in mind Ticket To Ride is simple compared to most train games. It's really just a more physical version of Rummy with a train theme on it.

It is a wonderful game, but don't go in expecting a train sim or something.

This cannot be emphasized enough. 1830 it most definitely is not.

It's a good game though.

I was sorta thinking along the lines of that Futurama's Sal

I've got spare Steam keys for Super Brothers Sword and Sworcery and Crayon Physics deluxe. PM me if you want either.

Anyone have any thoughts on the Anno 2070 Steam Deal? Worth it? Tempted but I already have Sim City, and Tropico 4 in the Steam library.

I hear they removed the always on DRM if that was holding anyone up.

Ooooh! I might just have to jump on this one. My next beer will probably do me in.

Hmmm, so Anno 2070 for $16.99 + Anno 2070 DLC Complete Pack for $5.99 for $22.98 total

OR

Anno 2070 Complete Pack for $34.99?

Does that seem crazy to anyone else? That can't be right, can it? Am I missing something there?

I saw that and wondered if there's some DLC not in the "Complete" pack? I wasn't interested enough to compare.

Yeah, there's one more piece in the complete pack, it's the $11.99 deep ocean DLC. I did the same math.

Ah OK thanks, glad someone was not too lazy to check all the DLC out like I was.

For 2$ more, get the bigger version of anno. The Deluxe one.

Well, the soundtrack is a nice touch..

And after a while, getting the Deep Ocean Expansion is a must if you like the game.

But, if you want anno on steam, buy the base, and get the other content after.

The game got its own updater, and accept code for dlc outside of steam. Guess that's one of the last game to do that on steam. (I bought some contents from Impulse, but the base game is on steam for me.)

Think I got 60 hours out of the game, and still need to go back for the single player games..

GMG has the following EA deals with coupon GMG20-P4DLK-FKYRS :

Battlefield 3: Premium Edition $24
Kingdoms of Amalur - Reckoning $6
Mirror's Edge $4
Crysis 2: Maximum Edition $8
Medal of Honor Warfighter $16
FIFA 13 $16

BF3 Premium Edition is half the price of Premium on it's own.

GMG must have started doing regional deals as none of those show up for me in the UK. Sad times.

If you like RPGs, Kingdoms of Amalur - Reckoning is a steal for $6. You'll get at least 50 hours out of that bad boy.

That's exactly what I was trying to purchase off the back of the post, but my GMG sells Amalur for £19.99 (before 20% discount).

Dayum.

EDIT: Scratch that. Thank youuuuuu US web proxy at work

Little Inferno is $3.99 on Steam.

On EA games, they have to work through a different distributor for the US IIRC. They don't have a direct agreement with EA. Or maybe it's the opposite. Can't remember.

I'm seeing it for $7.50 here in Canada, with a US proxy would I see it for $6?

It is 7.50, but with code: GMG20-P4DLK-FKYRS gives you a further 20% off..

Supposedly, Target is discounting the 3DS XL and 3DS by $40 for the week of the 24th through the 30th. That puts the XL at $160 and the 3DS at $130.

Plus, if you register a 3DS XL and either Luigi's Mansion or Pokémon Mystery Dungeon on Club Nintendo, you'll get a free digital copy of Super Mario 3D Land, Starfox 64, Professor Layton and the Miracle Mask, or a couple other less exciting games.

So potentially a 3DS and two games for the price of a vanilla 3DS.

Different. Definitely worth 3.99. I couldn't stop playing it. I paid full price (once for PC and once for WiiU) and haven't regreted it one bit.

Also I think the week before they are doing Buy 2 Get 1 Free. So you could actually get another free game if you plan ahead. Instant collection!
