Steam Deals

Valve's Steam Service is now accepting preorders for Crysis Warhead, as they will be carrying the shooter prequel. They are also now offering the original Crysis, as well as a bundle of Crysis now and Warhead when it is released. Steam News also has this weekend's sale, offering "indie hits" Gumboy and Gumboy Tournament for $4.99 (regularly $29.98) when purchased together in celebration of the 10 year anniversary of Cinemax. Finally, Steam also announces that if you preorder Introversion's Multiwinia: Survival of the Flattest before September 19, you'll get Darwinia now for free.

Everyone has begged for Crysis over Steam it seems, only it may still have EA’s SecuROM DRM limitations (whatever they may be for Warhead) and it’ll still use Gamespy for multiplayer server browsing etc.

Valve is also taking preorders for the new version of the Witcher with 10% off. The original is great and is even better if you know Polish since the English translation had few issues, which the Devs apparently re-recorded for the Enhanced Edition.

Order it off Impulse instead - same 10% discount, but then you can get an additional 20% off using this coupon code: SURVEY-2008

Well this time they've lured a frigid fellow into their bed. No discount on buying both of the Crysis games together, no preorder discount, and the original Crysis is $10 more than the new Crysis Warhead!

EA on Steam is still EA, apparently.


Edit: What happened to EA's deal where Warhead was only $25 if you got it from them? Not that it matters, looks like Circuit City is having a deal in a week where they're selling Warhead for that same $25, and STALKER Clear Sky for $30. Some kind of special on Colonization on the 24th as well, so it seems Circuit City might be my buddy for the month of September.

I noticed the lack of bundle discount. Kinda lame, but if being on Steam means that Warhead might lighten up on the DRM and just use Valve's embedded protection, (which, in my view, is a little less intrusive)I might put Warhead back on my "possibly" list.

The thing is, I expect EA to use the same shitty DRM that they used on Mass Effect and on Spore. What bothers me is that if Warhead ends up selling better than Crysis did, the clueless suits at EA will most likely attribute that to the DRM. Never mind that it's 20 bucks cheaper than Crysis was at launch, is by all accounts much less of a resource hog, and focuses on the parts of Crysis that really shined. EA will believe its DRM stopped us filthy pirates cold.

Ahhhh so tempted so tempted, I was on the order screen...

...not gonna do it. I want to have the goodies, because they are actually useful (to the game) goodies unlike most CE's these days which just put in random crap.

Forgot about the survey code. Plus, no worries about an offline mode not working since Impulse is not required to be running when the game is launched--unlike Steam, which still has issues when there's a connection problem.

Purchased. Now gimme! Been waiting for this game for awhile now.

Hey! no complaining about the no discount for you buying Crysis through Steam. In Australia we have three options for buying it:

Option 1 - Crysis Warhead $29.99

Option 2 - Crysis Complete Pack $89.98

Complete pack includes Crysis valued at $59.99 and Warhead valued at $29.99.

Option 3 - Crysis Complete Pack $94.98

Complete pack includes Crysis valued at $59.99 and Warhead valued at $29.00.

Individual Price for both - $89.98

Package Price Cost to you - $94.98

What a deal!

Already have Crysis but Warhead via Steam is around $20.00 less than it will be here so I'll grab it.

I can't wait to replay it with the added content, the restored cut dialog, and the extra polish. Plus playing it with Polish voice acting and English subtitles should be great. I hope it's possible. I read it was.


Edit: The Witcher that is.

I'm a big fan of steam as it often doesn't include the DRM stuff, but who knows when it comes to EA.

I 'may' be Warhead. I did enjoy Crysis, especially some of the stuff with the aliens towards the end.

But I'm looking forward to Farcry 2 much more so

I didn't think it'd be on Steam so I just pre-ordered it at Lamestop. Sigh.

That 28 bucks for the Witcher is very tempting...

I think Far Cry 2 is going to be dissapointing, they claim 80 hours of gameplay - I kind of doubt they went to the trouble of creating 80 hours of unique missions for the game, going to wait for the user reviews to kick in on this one.

I loved Crysis, and I pre-ordered Warhead direct from EA. I got it for $25 a month or so ago ....

Does no one here care about Gumboy and his Crazy Adventures?

I picked up the $4.99 package with both games. It's not bad, sort of like an offbeat variation on Sonic the Hedgehog with attractive hand-painted art.

It'll still have DRM, didn't Bioshock have Securom it on Steam like its physical offering?

For those who expect it, Steam is not meant to be cheaper than retail outlets. In fact a whole lot of [nearly new] stuff ends up being more expensive as retail discount titles to shift stock. Weekend sales can be good (I nearly bought the id superpack as I hadn't ever played the Q2 missions packs) but really these sales (especially of older titles) just show how much cash is made on SKUs that would have otherwise been in a bargain bin!

I'm a 'physical CD person' so my comments reflect my acceptance but dislike of Steam (or any other digital service).

Impulse doesn't sell The Witcher to Australians. How unfair is that. Me smells price fixing bullshit a la Ubisoft going on.

gamersgate.com does sell to Australians and also has The Witcher. However, it's a title only available to Nth America. So, yeah, I guess it's a publisher thing.

Gumboy Crazy Adventures is good fun. Gumboy Tournament sounds very different, and I haven't really been interested, but for $5 I might be persuaded, despite my dislike of Steam.

If you don't have either than $5 is an absolute steal.

Crazy Adventures is a bit weird in that the goals of the tutorial levels (of which there are many) bear absolutely no similarity to the goals of the 'real' levels. It's more like the tutorial is a bonus game type. The proper levels have some absolutely gorgeous graphics and sound, and can be a bit magical at times. Fairly unique, beautifully presented, and definitely worth the asking price.
