Ok, this deal seems like something everyone here would be interested in. Many probably own some of the games, but nice deal on RPGs.

Also, looks like there is a conflict with ordering, or a bug. You can buy all the games, but if you own one already you have to send the whole deal as a gift. So you can buy some of the games, but depending on which ones you pick, it could be more expensive than getting them all(should include temple of elemental evil in any order, as price is less than the discount at most points).

Also, if you add all the games to your cart as the deal, then remove the ones you already own, looks like you get the deal price for all of them(66% off), and not the prorated deal(say 60% for 8 games).

So, awesome deal!

Not necessarily. You may recall a similar deal was available for much, much less from GamersGate and Impulse in the past.
viewtopic.php?f=21&t=50226&p=2909622

Hmuble Indie Bundle 6 is out, and it looks like a nice one:
Torchlight
Rochard
Shatter
Space Pirates and Zombies
Vessel
and Dustforce if you play a little more.

Of course, you probably have a lot of these already; Steam recently just had excellent deals for Rochard and Shatter, and Torchlight and SPAZ have previously been deeply discounted too. I can't even remember how I ended up with Vessel.

What was the deal with using Steam in Europe again? I am traveling at the moment and all the prices on the website are coming up in Euros even after signing in, despite the fact that all my purchases thus far have been in US dollars. Resident Evil 5 is a good deal for $10 USD; ten Euros, not so much.

...Now, if someone would be so kind as to gift me the game, I swear on my forty-five hundred posts that I will send you $9.99 in Paypal before Saturday.

Shush. There is an informal agreement never to complain about the price difference between EU and NA, out of respect for Australia.

I don't know if this is the place to post it, but I just got an extra copy of Civilization 5 on Steam for pre-ordering a game. Is anybody interested in trading me a game? If somebody wants to buy me FTL as a gift (10 dollar value), I'll send my extra copy of Civ 5 in return (a 30 dollar value). Steam name is the same as my forum name.

Heads-up: if you bought Humble Bundle 2 or Humble Bundle 3 long, long ago, the key pages have been updated with a Steam key for Cortex Command, now available on Steam after having emerged from years and years of development hell (during which it was available in said Bundles in beta form).

Also, La-Mulana is on GOG.com for $9.99 at the moment (regular $14.99). There's no telling when it might finally arise from Steam Greenlight, and even when it does, it probably won't be cheaper – oh, what am I saying? Now that I've bought it, of course it's going to be cheaper. :P

And Legend of Grimrock for 50% off! Time to buy that! Sigh, now if only I had time to play even half the games I own.

It's everywhere else on the internet by now, but you can get a $20 or less game for free on Origin by using the code "OS3874XVC". Mostly works on EA titles I think.

Seems like their servers are getting hammered, I haven't been able to check out yet. Do you know if the code will work multiple times/on multiple items?

So then, I'm looking at the Walking Dead, Alice: Madness Returns and Orcs Must Die 2 Complete, anyone know if they're terribad or rock? (I've heard mixed but mostly positive things about each)

Lone Survivor is the most tempting to me, and I think I might finally drop five bucks on Prototype.

The original Zombie Driver was surprisingly enjoyable, and I might buy the HD version someday. (Fortunately, a I own the original, the offer is not time-limited.)

Other apparently-good choices are Rock of Ages and Costume Quest.

OMD2 is fun, although I found it to be a bit shallow and get repetitive fairly quickly. Probably worth it as long as you don't go in expecting it to be amazingly deep.

I've also heard that The Adventures of Shuggy is surprisingly good and worth tossing $2.50 on.

Fantastic deals on GoG. Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri, only $2.39! (This is probably my favorite computer game, ever.) Nox is a fantastic RPG which stands the test of time well (I replayed it just a year or two ago and enjoyed it immensely). Several other classics, some of which I've played (like Populous) and others of which I haven't.

Alas, still no Alien Crossfire expansion. They say there's licensing issues afoot, but remember, kids, you can still get a perfectly legal copy shipped from the UK at http://www.mastertronic.com/productSold ... tLabelID=1 .

This is actually the first one for a while where I didn't already have all the games. The only one I already owned was Eufloria.

Although I have to say some of these games are properly fiddly to play on a phone screen. Splice in particular because it doesn't let you zoom in to see what you're doing.

I always pay ten dollars, because I have the cash to and if I don't, then I only end up donating to charity when my tax refund comes. Entirely out of laziness and forgetting, so it's nice that something pops up periodically to remind me to give money to things.

That and OCD. I always pay ten dollars because OCD.

Nox has been on GoG for quite some time now, actually.

As for OMF 2097, that was officially released as freeware (as in "We are releasing the full version of this as freeware" and not "durr, teh gaem si old so it's FREE nao!") quite a few years ago. Perhaps you are thinking of OMF Battlegrounds, the very, very poorly-received sequel?

(I was going to say I wouldn't ever expect anything OMF 2097 to show up on GOG, but then, they do have a couple of the old Apogee/3D Realms titles.)
