    Also Weekend Deal, 50% off Age of Empires 3 Complete.

    Is that thing worth getting? I liked the previous ones.

    It was available on Xbox marketplace for $0.10 during some old holiday promo. Not joking. Wait for a lower price.

    AoE 3 wasn't too bad but nowhere near as memorable as the first 2. Not worth the $20 in my opinion.

    AOE3 sucked. I played it back when I was into competitive RTS games and the online was very broken. You gained "Experience" for your factions and that experience could mean huge boosts that other players could not yet have. New players just basically got shit on and rarely did anyone get a genuinely balanced match.

    Humm...not sure, but maybe it's because you already own the game, thus using thye cupoun to buy it is not allowed...

  7. Felipepepe is partially correct. It's because you already own the game. Strange as it may seem, you can't buy a 4 pack at all if you already own the game. Due to some Steam faggotry, 4 packs are set up so the purchaser gets a copy and 3 giftable copies, but it isn't set up so you can just buy 4 giftable copies.

    So if you were buying that for bros you'll have to wrangle one of the bros in to buying it, then you Paypal the money over or whatever. If you wanted 4 copies for trading then you're SOL.

    Picked up DOW II: Retribution ($7.49) and Might & Magic VI Deluxe ($14.94) on Greenman. Be quick only a few hours remaining if you want these.

    It's actually part of a scheme from Steam in order to suppress Kwanzaas buying games cheap for and/or and selling to euro guys.

    Hope this wasn't the coupon I traded with RK47. If it doesn't work I can trade it back.

    On Sunday Amazon (U.S. IPs only -- unless you have a way around it) will be selling Civ 5 GOTY (Steamworks title) for $9. If you have one of the $5 discount coupons you can get it for $4.

  13. That's pretty great, shame I've already got civ5. Well worth $4, or even $9. Though civ4 is still the best.

    Nice, finally traded away Jagged Alliance 2 and got... Drakensang! Been meaning to try it but hasn't gotten a solid discount. Also traded a bunch of coupons for a 40% off Witcher 2 coupon. Hopefully that gets a sale before it expires in March so I can double dip~

    Hehe, yeah. Really not much of an endorsement for a supposedly AAA game.

    Aztaka is a daily today for $3.40ish. There's a demo on Steam -- seems to be a decent enough blend of platform combat, rpg elements, and puzzle solving.

    First of all, I would like if a few steam bros held my hand and played terraria with me. Secondly, whens the next big sale ? I don't like waiting an entire week for one single item to go on sale. :(

    In terms of something the size of the Summer/Winter sale? Not until this summer... so... late June. That said there will almost certainly be some publisher week sales and possibly a few mini themed promos although I don't remember any Valentines or Spring sales or anything like that. Keep in mind there's a new game on sale every day (usually nothing amazing, though), a midweek deal and a weekend deal so technically there are at least nine sales each week.

    Hmm...Yeah, something on the scale of the winter sale is what I was looking for. I'll keep an eye out on the daily deals though, thanks for the info.

    Jesus, I wouldn't want them any more regular I don't think - takes me six months to recover from my over-spending and then to save for the next one. :(
