Come on Dark Souls... Go on sale!
It was 50% off as flash offer like 2 or 3 days ago. Didn't get it though, getting the DLC directly from PSStore was cheaper.  
I have acquired Forge, Super Street Fighter IV Arcade Edition and Arma II (yay DayZ at last) so quite good sales for me ^^

Did you not get in on the Amazon $15 sale? It'll also be $13 there in the new year with an editor's choice credit.

No... I was on holiday so I didn't hear about any deals. I only had email notifications set up for when games on my wishlist went on sale. I'm also in the UK so I'm not sure whether the discs would work over here (plus by the time I've paid for postage and packaging from the US... yeah, I doubt it would be a very good deal :P).

How much is it in the PS3 store (the DLC, I mean)? I was just thinking that I could get it on Steam and be able to play whenever I feel like it - even when I'm travelling as that's easier than taking my PS3 with me and finding a TV haha. Plus I get to play with my friends who don't own a PS3 :) But yeah, it's weird how Steam never emailed me about the flash sale... maybe flash sales are dependant on regions? I.e. it went on sale in America but didn't in Europe.

It's a region-free Steam key.

PS3 DLC around 13-15€ iirc. Steam sale was at 20€.

I bought Skyrim with Dawnguard and Sleeping Dogs this sale. I know I love Skyrim already and I just fell in love with the game again. So glorious.

Sleeping Dogs was an impulse buy and I don't regret it one bit. This game is awesome.

Don't get suckered by the daily deal. Bioshock 1+2 is $5 on Amazon (either Steam keys or GFWL keys), or $10 for one of two bundles including both - one with Spec Ops: The Line, the other with Borderlands GOTY. Any of these purchases come with an Editor's Choice $5 credit.

Edit: putting links in

http://www.amazon.co...uct/B0083W649I/
http://www.amazon.co...uct/B0091T6FQO/
http://www.amazon.co...uct/B008GW5V9E/

If you're outside the U.S., use a fake address, preferably in a state that doesn't charge tax for online purchases. Amazon is fine with this for purchasing their digital games.

Bought Legend of Grimrock 2 days ago. It is a pretty funny game but I can't play for a longer time with it, still it was worth the 2,70€ for sure.

There's also 3 days left for current Humble Bundle, which have a few good games. They go on sale on steam sometime but I find it cheaper to get the whole bundle. It comes with music and also come with steam keys if you pay 1$ above the average.

I got Dark Souls from PlasySC as they were a whole 30p cheaper than the Steam sale with 50% off.
Now if Amazon were doing a deal on the SIms 3 expansion packs or something... that would be awesome :P
I actually wish Origin would do a Winter sale but no such luck.

The Gods & Kings expansion for Civilization 5 is $3.15 after voucher at GMG.

I need a Brit to help me get a copy of DMC4 from GMG's UK store - supposedly it's around $1.50 there. Any takers?

Amazon's EC deals are live.

Highlights include:

Dark Souls $13
Hotline Miami $2.50
Battlefield 3 Premium $20
Far Cry 3 $32
The Secret World $13

If you don't have any coupons, find someone who does.

More games on the list are likely to be going on sale throughout the month.

Max payne 3 75% off... uhmm, UHMMMM!
Decisions decisions. *, problem is that whenever I see a great sale I feel the urge to pick it. Does anyone here have the DLC's? Are they worth buying?

PD: By the way, Happy New Year Everyone!! It seems the world isn't ending after all.

DLCs are multiplayer content only. Skip them.

Also, it's on Amazon's list, too, if you want to save $5.

War of the Roses is 50% off today

It is a steep learning curve but very rewarding once you have worked it out.

I've been looking on amazon but I can't find the downloadable version. I only find the physical version which is 30$.

It was here. They ran out of stock a few hours ago, though.

Think Doom with 3D graphics and a Gothic tone.

If you don't like shooters where you shoot huge hordes of monsters (as opposed to story-driven shooters), no.

Is Max Payne 3 online multiplayer still alive, and is it good? I've been looking for a Red Dead-esque shooter in terms of gameplay mechanics

A dark/gothic Serious Sam would be a more accurate comparison

What do you think Serious Sam was a derivation of, though? :P

Hotline Miami is $5 at Amazon before Editor's Choice coupon, free with one. deal dead
