    Not to derail the thread, but if you see Dragon Age 2 for sale ANYWHERE, do not buy it.

    Dragon Age 2 is BioWare's Devil May Cry 2.

    Dragon Age 2 got taken down from Steam a long time ago. No need to worry.

    Real quick "Flash Sales" are the cheapest games will get over the sale right?

    Flash sales have daily deal level discounts. So do the community choice deal.

    Anybody think The Walking Dead's 5 episodes will be free somewhere down the line? I feel that since it made so much money and took so little to develop that it could work out.

    I can only see the first episode going free. That's what Telltales did with their Back to the Future game

    <33 Thanks for the thought, but I was extra hyped up for today lol. I'm going to go a bit easier for the rest of the sale though, I think, since DS:PtD was pretty high up on my list of wants. We'll see.

    Also, I'm going to the lake this weekend, but whoever wants to do some L4D2 runs add me and we can play next week.

    I picked up Civ5 for my brother as a flash deal, glad I waited... also the ultimate pack (all the DLC + expansions except for the new one) is also 75% off, cheaper than just the expansion itself at 50% off lol

    Also, common Steam Sale Problem, I saw Saints Row at $5, said "I'd probably like to try that," tried to buy it.

    "You already own saints row the third"

    oops. I did buy the entire THQ pack before I think!

    I heard Fez was full of glitches but that was for the 360 version. Don't feel like it's worth $5 anyway.

    I'm on fence about getting Just Cause 2.

    Goddamn I'm a liar, got XCOM, Chivalry(mostly for my little brother) and Surgeon Simulator (3 bucks plus the trailer makes me :rofl: )

    All I know about Fez is from the movie, I was interested then. Not so much anymore :shrug:

    And yeah Dark Souls heavily suggests a controller, which I use for most of my games anyways. I can't get used to KB+M and where my computer is set up currently is crazy uncomfortable to type on.

    Checking out the deals over at gamers gate. They have Kingdoms of Amalur for $7.50. Steam doesn't even have that game on sale so I'll have to get it from there.

    I was gonna buy GTA4 for $5 yesterday, then Steam kept getting errors because fuckers kept hammering their servers. When I could finally get back on, price jumped up to $10.

    So far, fuck this Steam sale. This is my first ever Steam sale and it sucks ass :tdown:

    The GTA deal was up for 8 hours, and their servers weren't hammered the entire time : P

    I logged onto my PC, saw GTA for $5, added it to my Cart, clicked My Cart, got the error. Tried every 15 to 30 minutes after that until the sale ended. Wasn't able to get in up to the last 15 mins of the sale, so I said fuck it.



    If RPG Maker VX Ace was like 80% off, I'd cop it. I used to be big into the homebrew traditional RPG development scene. Worked on a few games, and it was a blast. I was heavy into the XP version back in 2005/2006, and kinda fell out of the scene right when the original VX came out. The community is kind of crappy, but the RPG Maker software itself if a powerful tool. If you are good at coding/programming and can create your own resources, you can make whatever you want. Even MMOs. And if your final product is a hit, you can go commercial. Maybe even sell that sumbitch on Steam.

    I would say if you have a passing interest in it you should pick it up. I have it for PS3 (probably like 60ish hours there) and got it when it went on sale for the first time. I think it has the best combat of any ARPG I've seen, that's just an opinion of mine the 'endurance meter' makes every fight super tense. If you want to read more we've got a thread for it: http://forums.shoryuken.com/discussion/83388/demon-s-dark-souls-thread-dark-souls-ii#latest

    Also my buddy, who has some pretty good taste in games imo, messaged me the minute he saw me log onto it saying its his favorite single player game of the last 10 years.

    It depends on what you like. Combat and stat&equipment customization are top tier imo. I am still a newb in terms of DS though so I would ask for people's opinions in the thread

    I would get Dark Souls for ten bucks or less, in fact, I did. But I would suggest playing it with a controler and downloading dsfix.

    Yo, holy shit, I think I need to upgrade my graphics card. My stock PC can barely run Tomb Raider at Normal settings on fullscreen 1080p.

    I don't know shit about computers and/or upgrading them, but I have a buddy that does. What's a recommended gfx card to get to run TR buttery smooth at Normal settings at fullscreen 1080p?

    Let me know if you need any info. Thanks in advance :china:

    What kinda computer you got? Not some dell or something right? Anyhow, there are all kinda graphics cards. Look at newegg and read the feedback and shit.

    I need to upgrade my ram.

    Exodus - dsfix is great. Game ran like crap then I applied that fix and it runs great.

    Normal settings? GTFO. Might as well play it on console for the same experience.

    All jokes aside, drop your resolution. Run that shit in 480/720p, turn off V-sync and maybe some Direct X11 features if possible to get a huge boost in performance.

    ^ Most bang for your buck card right now imo. I linked it on the last page too, it's a top-of-the-line card without breaking the bank @ 500-1000 bucks.

    ^ Really solid cards for 150-200 bucks. These days, more games rely on a really good processor to keep framerates high. This is something I wish I knew before I skimped on my processor.
