With the holidays approaching, digital game distributors are undoubtedly preparing some juicy deals for this year's festivities. In the meantime, it seems they're holding back on the major sales, but there are still plenty of bargains for you this weekend. Steam offers four classic GTA titles for $7.49, as well as 66% off Supreme Commander 2. Meanwhile, Impulse cuts 50% off The Sims 3, and Direct2Drive knocks 25% off any purchase worth $49.95 or more via coupon code "bigsavings".
They always have some great sales going on. I wonder how they can pull off 75% discounts all the time and the regular retailers will give you $5 and that's their big sale. Steam is awesome, don't have to worry about losing my disk, I can uninstall and reinstall at will, and as I've pointed out, if you wait long enough you can get the game you want at a rediculously low price.
I thought I'd throw my 2 cents in here because I bought GTA 4 for the PC and I have yet to play it. Here is why. Unlike all of the other GTAs you cannot steer your vehicle with the mouse. Keyboard steering is all over the place. I could not get used to it.
I could not get my PS3 controller to work properly with the homemade drivers and I wasn't going to spend $40 on a gamepad for my PC to play a PC game I paid $10 for. So there it sits in my Steam library taunting me. =)
Yes good ol country filter. The stronghold series aren't available for me to view in store either but somehow I got them all from a pack so I can play them thru steam but not open the steam store page for them :/
I've managed to resist temptation lately, after I discovered that I buy too many games. I almost bought NBA 2K10 when I saw it at $2 on Steam, but by the time I read reviews and thought about it the price was back up. Steam has these "price glitches" occasionally, don't know why. I don't know if it's good or bad that I hesitated.
Anyway, I'll be waiting for the year end Steam sale, which isn't far off.
BTW I don't have any GTA game and won't have any because Steam doesn't want to sell them to me (they're geographically limited).
