I wouldn't be surprised at all about TF, especially with whatshisnames comments last week...

Dishonored would be extremely disappointing to lose, but everything comes to an end (or at least quality wise).

Dishonored 2 is 35 bucks on Amazon right now.

I can't remember recent years having such savings so close to release. I've gotten Dishonored 2, BF1, and Titanfall 2, all for upwards of half off.

On the one hand, it's awesome, on the other, I can't help but wonder which IPs (hello Titanfall!) it might be the death of in the future...


I think Titanfall and Dishonored are done for. BF is too big, but those two are not recouping anywhere near what they were expected to.

Hrm, the prices in general weren't great, but I've already given in and bought about 8 games this sale.

Dark Souls 2, Dragon's Dogma, Windward, Star Ruler 2, then the big ones, MGS V:Phantom Pain, and Rise of the Tomb Raider.

Shen DLC for XCOM2 and Planetary Annihilation:Titans also, I believe.

The queue gorges itself, chuckling as it moves farther and farther away from completion.

If you can get a refund on Dragon's Dogma, it's this month's Humble Monthly 'top' pick... So for $12 USD, you'll get that, immediately, and another 5-7 games in a week.

Sheeit, thanks!

I never buy from the Humble Bundle. It makes me feel bad that the devs almost make no money. If I want to give money to charity, I'll give it to charity, if I want to buy good games, I'd rather encourage the devs who make them and need to pay rent.

You can move the slider to give the devs ALL the money if you get it on Humble can't you? Or is that just for the bundles?

Also, don't forget about Steam's 30% cut!

Yeah, I know about the slider, but like, 10 bucks for all these games feels like a steal to me. Maybe in some cases, if you factor Steam it could be acceptable...

curious why people say shadow warrior 2 is a much better game than doom.. I found doom great, though only in high difficulty ( in default it was empty and thus meh), whats so great about shadow warrior 2 ?

I wouldn't say "much better". Doom does some things better than SW2, but SW2 does other things better.

- SW2 doesn't have glory kills, is faster, more brutal and the gore physics are much better. The combat is just better.
- It also has randomly generated and truly open levels. Doom has some open levels, but they're mostly linear.
- I thought that Doom had a better story, but SW2 is pretty damn funny.
- SW2 and Doom both have great music, but I feel that Doom's is slightly better.
- Doom's upgrade system is kinda shitty, while SW2 has a pretty deep one. Also, you can play SW2 lots of different ways and customize everything. In Doom, you don't really have a choice.
- Let's not forget that SW2 has full campaign coop and much more replayability.
- SW2 looks better, especially textures.

I think they're both great games, but SW2 is a true PC game with none of the consolization that Doom suffers from. I had more fun with it.

I just hope the weak sales mean that we'll get better sales during the winter sale.

The spacing between the sales is really weird, though. There is one in summer, sometime around August, then we may get a Halloween sale in October, an autumn sale in November and a winter sale in December. And then not much happens until next summer.
Now we donce.

Some of you guys need to check your privelege lol. If it weren't for Steam, Steam sales and the subsequent ballooning of competing digital delivery websites vying for my gaming dollar I'd still be buying boxed copies at the local EBGames for $80 a pop.

Instead I picked up Shadow Warrior 2 at 40% off which was only released two months back, and Stardew Valley for $10 which came out in like May, and Ori & Blind Forest for $9 when Microsoft wants to charge me $22 all year long.

And frankly I don't miss the flash sales, it sucked realizing the game you wanted to buy was on flash sale from 2pm-5pm on a Tuesday when you were at work or in class and couldn't buy the game, so you missed the deal and now you have to pay $12 when you could have paid $4.
Thank you.

Even if it isn't great? Perhaps you may not like it, but it's been a home run for the genre in general.

Meh, there was only that one time where Flash sales were a couple hours long. It was an experiment that was never repeated. Usually they were 8 or a whole 36 hours. Also, as I did one year while on vacation, there was the phone app from which you could purchase games if you weren't at your PC.

My feeling is that Steam in the past was able to negotiate a 2 tier pricing structure: a regular sale price, and then a super sale price for flash sales. Now it's just one price, and less off than in the past.

I get the gripe, but we know why it is and having that option is good all year long. We all have plenty of games. We are paying way less on avg for our games then we did in the past. There is still plenty of solid deals. Question, when do you think we'll not mention "Man I really liked the ole Steam Flash Sales?"

As for the new UI, some pluses and minuses but the main recommendation square I get right in my face, hate it. I want new games there like it was. They don't rotate what they think I may like day to day, so I have to "Unintrested" forever as it goes through a list of games it thinks I want and usually not new stuff. Shit they'll pull stuff 10 years old in it regularly. Boo.
