Video Game Deals Catch-All

Fixed link: Cliffs of Dover on Uplay

I wished well for this one, but the game received very poor reviews for its instability and bugginess. The Steam community forums are (still!) replete with users who simply can't even launch the game. I'm not sure if that's the fault of the game itself or the horrible, festering abomination that is the Uplay launcher.

But it looks so pretty....

Tomb Raider @ Gamefly for $26.79 after coupon GFDAPR20. Not sure if this will work tomorrow or not.

Amazon direct download is selling a couple FIFA titles at $9.99 each.

FIFA 13

FIFA Manager 13

From what I can gather, FIFA Manager 13 isn't as good as Football Manager 2013, but FIFA 13 certainly has fans.

As my son starts showing interest in playing, this might be something I'll pick up to help us learn the rules.

I'd agree with the Fifa Manager/Football Manager description. There is no alternative in the 'soccer' management area.

Fifa 13 is the go-to game as well, compared to Pro-Evolution Soccer. I also don't think I've ever seen it this cheap, being an EA game and Origin only, they don't often get mega discounts.

Tempting... I got FIFA 12 when Origin was doing that free $19.99 game, and it was fun. Not sure how improved 13 is, but $10 isn't asking much.

Eve online 30 day starter pack with items; $4.99 @ GMG (regularly $19.99, valid for new accounts or trial upgrades only)

Not too shabby if you stick it on a 21 day trial though if you're totally new to the game you may have trouble making good use of the 14 day +9 accelerator. Really considering jumping back in for another fresh start myself.

Uggghhhh...EVE Online looks so fascinating to me but I know it's an epic timesink that I don't have time for...

Gamestop download has Dishonored for 66% off that makes it $20.39, one of the lowest prices I think i have seen it at. Also it is steamworks.

And here I was, perfectly content to focus on AI War this weekend...

Oh, really?

I stopped just short of buying it for $30 last weekend. Now it's as if I'd had some kind of premonition that it was going to get cheaper.

That is a good price. I'd be all over it if I hadn't just bought one of the AMD pack in cards off ebay that gave me Bioshock Infinite, Tombraider, and Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon. That's a lot of gaming already for a bit, not to mention I have Max Payne sitting here.

How much do those go for? Those are all on my WTB list.

*edit, looks to be about $50. Not worth it for the risk / price for me at this point. If anything it looks like all these deals on Bioshock and Tomb Raider may have something to do with them flooding the market with ebay market for pack in codes.

It's funny to see deals reach really good points that cross your threshhold of when you will buy only to see them plummet even further in a month or two.

DO NOT give GameStop your business. Green Man Gaming has Dishonored for $20 after the 20% off coupon (GMG20-GGN5D-FC3NA), so you can enjoy your game with a clear conscience.

They were $50 before Bioshock reviews hit, then they went up to over $60, now they've come down again. I paid $44. Far Cry 3 Blood Dragon's addition by AMD, including retroactively adding it to all cards from the promotion back into last year, pushed me over the edge.

I didn't really figure it was much of a risk, I'd just dispute it if it didn't work. I bought Dirt 3 on a similar deal right after its release for $10.

I was kind of afraid I'd get spoiled on Infinite if I waited much longer. I've rarely bought predominately single player games near release lately.

I've seen enough instances in this thread of people being burned by GMG, too.

Buy your games where you want, people. Heed your own experiences.

Surgeon Simulator on Steam for $6.99. It looks pretty funny but not sure if I want to spend the cash on it

Yeah, I have been looking at it off and on, but I think it's something that I would get if it came to a Humble Bundle or something. It seems like it would be fun for an hour or so.

I just found an unpolished demo you could play. It's ridiculously hard. Think I'll pass despite the humor I might get out of it.

Maybe I'll just stick to watching youtube videos of people playing it.

That is one of the funniest clips I've seen in awhile.

that was amazing. I think I made the correct choice.

Possibly his funniest video yet.

Amazon is offering a $20 bonus credit when trading in games or accessories worth $20 or more. This means, for example, if you want to trade in Bioshock Infinite for $36, you'll get $56 in credit, which makes ownership of this game a bit more than an expensive rental. Free shipping, of course. I'm going to replay Bioshock Infinite at some point, but I may just trade it in now, get a few other things I want (hello, X-Com, DXHR, and/or Kingdoms of Amalamadingdong: Reckoning), and just re-buy it later.

That's crazy. I could trade in Virtue's Last Reward at a profit.

Euro Truck Simulator 2 is $15 on GamersGate.

If you're curious about that darn Truck Simulator? thread that keeps popping up on the front page, you can download the lengthly, full-featured Steam demo and see for yourself...before heading over to GamersGate to buy the full copy.

That's what I just did with Tomb Raider. Bought it on sale at Amazon for $42 and now trading it in for $34 + $20 promotional credit = $54. Since Amazon is paying me to play games does that make me part of the games industry?

Heh. I can't get $20 worth of games I'm willing to trade in, just $15.

I still haven't managed to stop at gamestop to trade in the left overs from my collection purge, so I just checked the trade in values, and I have "up to" $40 worth. I'm thinking Amazon is the way to go.

This works out perfect! Finally got around to finishing God of War Ascension. Trade in value is $27. $47 total is a much better deal!
