Sine Mora for 2 fitty is a must. A real blast and beautiful to look at.

There's a flash sale on blood dragon, but its only 40%. Is it safe to buy if its a flash sale, or does it sometimes get lower? Or do the encores always bring back the lowest price?

Get it.

Done.

Would I be crazy to play blood dragon before FC3?

There's no connection - play in any order.

I'm playing blood dragon now, I'm digging it. Still waiting on $15 or under, FC3 sale.

I had a subwoofer I bought for a car back in 2001 that I never used, I just bought a plate amp and stock box and made myself a little sub for my PC. Now rocking 2.1 and it is kicking ass with blood dragon. Lots of bass going on in the music.

Got Sleeping Dogs. Pretty good so far, but I'm not too far in. Seems to be more based on melee combat and has a pretty fun little combat engine, even if a bit simple. Also has some parkour'ish elements.

It's a bit more GTA clone then I was hoping for, but it's got such stellar reviews that I'll give it a go through and hope for a strong storyline and some interesting missions that aren't just "catch this car" and "run from the cops" constantly.

Still not seeing a lot I have to have. Grabbed the Bionic Commando only because Capcom and Japanese style games. The Amazon sale and that Skyrim deal last week got me covered pretty good. I'm browsing the sub 5 dollar stuff but have only grabbed Sine Mora.
post #1449 of 1852
I may have to grab Sine Mora for $2.50, that's an excellent 'newer' game for my Arcade cabinet.

I was all excited for the new MK Komplete and they messed up the Keyboard functionality (which I use with my X-arcade dual) and so it's not 100% functional from menu to character selection to gameplay. mad.gif

I still have that Bioshock Infinite & Tomb Raider 2013 steam code if anyone is interested (both games for $32, about the price of Bioshock alone on the current steam sale wink.gif).

Hopefully I can get the retailer that gave me an expired steam FC3 to make good and give me something that's actually valid. rolleyes.gif

Chivaly is kind of ridiculous....but also pretty damn fun!
post #1451 of 1852
Don't remember who it was waiting for the new Tomb Raider, but there you go! $12.49!
post #1452 of 1852
That Tomb Raider is pretty damn good. I got it for 15 on Monday from Amazon. Really great reboot.

Yup....instabuy.
post #1454 of 1852
Let's try this again, last time it posted 4 times.

Tomb raider anniversary is 80 cents right now. The other old Tomb Raiders are around the same.

Wow, that is low.
post #1456 of 1852
Most of the older Tomb Raider games are 91% off!
post #1457 of 1852
I have to say, I am rather enjoying watching my steam wallet grow as people buy the cards. I got a solid $1.50 for one of the foils.
post #1458 of 1852
Ugh! Everyone gets frickin foils but me! I swear! lol

I've gotten cards for 40 different games, not a single foil.

I'd sell all my cards... but I'm too addicted to getting badges lol.
post #1459 of 1852
Grabbed Dishonored. I'm probably done at this point. Just can't think of anything else unless Devil May Cry gets really low.

Was Dishonored part of a flash sale? $17.99 is still too much for me.

Universe Sandbox is $2 right now. Worth that.

I don't have a problem with anything under 20 usually. It's well reviewed in the places I frequent.
post #1462 of 1852
Grabbed The Witcher 1 for 2.50 and Wicher 2 for 5 bucks. Almost zeroed out my steam wallet.
I swore I wasn't going to buy any more games for the rest of the year but this sale is just too good.

I've never played a Witcher game but it seems to be part Skyrim part action twitch. Good looking game.

I hope this will wash the horrible Fable 3 taste out of my brain from the xbox 360 free deal. Fable 3, yuck.

More Mass Effect and deeper than Skyrim.
post #1464 of 1852
Finally! got 2 foil cards in a row, sold em both for $5 each. quick $10 ftw!
post #1465 of 1852
In case anyone was wondering....no, you cant just launch ten games at once and idle them, go to sleep, and wake up to 50 cards. tongue.gif

Yes, you actually can, but launching multiple games at once screws with the drop rates and increases the time between drops exponentially. So you COULD go to sleep with 10 games open, but you'd wake up with very few cards. As it is right now, leaving a single game idle, or playing the game, nets a card every 20-30min on average.

Well yeah, thats what I mean. I tried it and hoped to wake up to a bonanza of cards...had 10 games open, but just netted 5 cards. One at a time seems to work best. Also, the more recent the game had cards added to it, the more you seem to get for each one. I'm getting a solid 30c for each system shock 2 card, but others are like 10c.

Yeah, that's due to the market not being flooded yet, one of the foils I sold was from SS2, You see them listed for over $10 but they don't actually sell at that price. They typically sell for about $6 tops, and the longer the game has had cards, the cheaper the foils get. You can get the L4D2 foils for less than a buck each now.
post #1469 of 1852
When you leave the game open does it matter if you're actually IN game when you leave it open?
post #1470 of 1852
Can somebody explain to me what foils and cards are?
