I quite enjoyed Mafia 2 so I wouldn't mind picking up Mafia 3 on a deep discount at some point in the future.

I've heard this game is going to be single player only.
And it will have a great campaign spanning 20-30 hours.

Why 23% off and not 25%? Such an odd number.

CS:GO and L4D2? Must have been an even worse sale then I thought.

Yeah for 2 clams I got it. I'm always surprised there are more board games converted to video games.
I've never been blown away by a video game port of a board game. You can't replicate the feel of dice and such in a video game and for me that an essential part of a board game.

Ticket to Ride any good?
I've heard very very good things about the board game but nothing about the video game. People seem to like it on STEAM.

Now that refunds are so much more accessible hopefully publishers will learn that they can't get away with this nonsense.
I hope so as well. However, telling us to wait for a patch before giving refunds won't cause that. A game should play "out of the box" on day 1 without significant pactches. Telling us to wait so they can fix their broken game is which never should have gone gold is poor form.

But you would have gotten this for free?

Perhaps sales and bundles aren't the real problem. Perhaps the real problem is that some people in the video game industry believe they're entitled to $50+ for a copy of their new game, no matter how long it has been out or what platform(s) it is on. Add to that the cost of the inevitable DLC and/or expansion packs and that game's cost surges well past $100 before it's all said and done. Sorry, but without bundles, discounts, sales and GotY editions, I, and many others like me, would buy far fewer games.
Exactly! the problem is also the steady creep up of prices. Remember when you could get a new game for $40 and no additional DLC? Yeah its the greed of publishers/ devs that have gotten us to this point not sales.

I thought this was the weakest sale. So many companies pulled weird things with their pricing that it really got insulting. Do they think we can't see through their BS discounts? Also so many things were on sale for the exact amount as previous sales or sometimes more. The number of games that have less of a discount on this sale then previous ones is truly staggering. It's times like these that Enhanced Steam saves your skin. Also far too many early access games were featured and far too many 20-40% discounts as dailys or flashs.

I did get Ground Zeros and The Withcer 1 and 2. I'm on the fence about Grim Fandango. It's a good price for what should be a good game but I can't shake the feeling it'll be back on discount for the exact same amount or probably less fairly soon.

oh nevermind, apparently IGN actually played the game, which gives them a leg up so far on every single person giving armchair appraisals on here. they gave it an 8.0

IGN also pisses itself for the latest COD big dev clone so I wouldn't trust them to review anything.

Do these survival games ever come out of Early Access? Seems like there are umpteen number of them popping up every month, and they remain EA indefinitely. Yet people seem to flock to them.

There were a few I wanted to buy, but the EA tag kept me away. I took several bad purchases in past sales to teach me my lesson. I'd rather just wait until the xmas sale and see if they've left EA. Seems like the daily deals and flash sales had a large percentage of early access titles.

I'm getting so sick of early access games. I don't like the idea of paying for demos especially bug riddled ones. At first I thought it would be good but so much crap goes on e.a. that I no longer think its a worthwhile purchase. It does seem that a significant chunk of the sales were made up of e.a. games. Between that and the pricing shenanigans, by various companies, I think this was the worst sale yet.

And this is why you don't design by committee. They obviously had no vision or passion. The most successful things come about because of those two things. Someone asked John Lennon once how the Beatles wrote so many hits. He replied, they never tried to write hits. They were just writing music they themselves wanted to hear. And being for average working class lads there were millions just like them around the world who wanted the same thing.

But yeah, I guess it's everyone else that's the problem for not realizing they're hipster geniuses.

Exactly! One of my favorite Mexican places they guy started it because he couldn't find the type of Mexican food he used to eat as a kid in my area. So he started a restaurant and it's done pretty well. You can't appease everyone so do what you do best. God these guys sound so freaking stuck up.

The PR company probably didn't do a good job cause I never heard of the game before coming here. Also why only an ad on RPS? They love this type of quirky game. Why not reach out to them and ask them to play a preview copy?

Are we that jaded? We complained about them nerfing a direct walk through in the last one. So, of course, we will complain about them addressing that. Also, keep in mind they said that this was a walk through designed to show off Adam's powers.

Same.

The team is basically the same and the style, gameplay, etc look identical but higher visual quality.
Um, sold.

They can shut up and take my money!
