May I suggest https://gg.deals as an alternative to key resellers. It can tell you where to get games the cheapest on approved websites (no key resellers) and has other features like price charts, wishlists, email/browser alerts etc.
You should check out isthereanydeal or gg.deals for deals outside of Steam, considering these stores can have better discounts. Also, check out Humble Bundle and Fanatical for bundles for a quite cheap price that usually has some quality games.
Some useful links to check all of the nice deals:
I think that was a really good sale, probably the best one so far during this year's spring.
The Niche guys! Apparently it was for a dollar once before.
Waiting for a sale again so I can buy it for all my friends :) Unfortunately I can't afford more than 2 copies for the full price, even though I think you guys absolutely deserve it.
Immortal Redneck on Steam:
Immortal Redneck is an FPS rogue-lite game with an Egyptian theme and colorful 3D graphics. Features fast arcade style first person shooting combined with platforming; randomly generated levels; complete skill tree; permanent death; 9 character classes; 50+ weapons; 100+ modifier scrolls; 35+ enemies; huge bosses; merchant purchasable persistent equipment and supplies; a Twitch Quest mode with audience voting; daily and weekly challenges; infinite floor mode; and a typical playtime of ~20 hours.
Steam reviews suggest this game has very fun and well developed FPS and platforming gameplay; many positive comparisons to Serious Sam, Doom and Ziggurat; fun character classes that support different styles of play; many modifier scrolls that affect gameplay in interesting ways; good random map generation; satisfying persistent unlocks; good graphics and sound; and a handful reviewers reporting occasional game crashes.
Deal is a historical low based on ITAD/GG.deals. Was bundled in the Reaper Bundle and Alliance Bundle by Fanatical and the December 2018 Humble Monthly. Previously featured by Chrono.gg in October 2018 at $6 and June 2018 at $8.
Strongly worth considering for FPS rogue-lite fans, especially those who enjoy the Egyptian theme.
Judging by this price history graph, no. There's been about a cumulative week in the past six months where it hasn't been similarly heavily discounted somewhere.
I imagine it'll turn up in a bundle soon enough.
Something I would add regarding their 3rd party deals as well:
The lowest Monster Hunter World has been on Steam is $39.59: https://steamdb.info/app/582010/
If you look at gg.deals, however, we can see that ever since December 2018, the game has been down well below $39.59 multiple times (with the lowest being $31), while Steam still hasn't ever been down below $39.59 (even though there is a sale going for it right now): https://gg.deals/us/game/monster-hunter-world/
Another example is Sekiro - on GreenManGaming and other retailers, it was on discount for about ~6-11% 1 month before release, while Steam has stayed at full price for months and hasn't gone on sale at all there yet. Even now, Sekiro is 8% off at some 3rd party sellers. And that game is published by Activision.
Now look at Borderlands 3 - that game was on sale on GmG but ONLY for a few days, after which it returned to the standard 60 euro/dollars. Metro Exodus is on Humble Bundle but does not have a lower price at all and a look at gg.deals tells us that it was cheaper back in December on a 3rd party site, before anyone knew about the Epic exclusivity.
Additionally, both BL3 and HB are extremely limited in the amount of stores they are on outside of Epic (only 1 for both of them, really) while games on Steam get like 4-5 stores at a minimum selling keys, often a lot more. Heck Sekiro was up on 6-7 different 3rd party sites before it even released, and the upcoming Yakuza Kiwami 2 is also on 6-7 different 3rd party sites, each having constantly cheaper prices than the Steam version.
This is not competition, this is not making games cheaper and look at the prices on EGS, despite the 12% cut games do not have their prices reduced (outside of Metro Exodus, which ONLY applied to America).
GG.Deals is the best site for finding and tracking deals and prices for games imo. Plus, by default it hides any shady sites so gou don't have to worry about those if you don't want them.
Arrrge! I advocate for holding out for the cheapest sales!
/r/GameDeals/ , https://isthereanydeal.com , https://gg.deals/us/
If you wait long enough, for it to go cheap enough, its almost like stealing it. /r/patientgamer
Well, congrats then!
But now, what steam sales brotherhood will you join?
The peak alphas that buy games in bulk to never even start them, or are you going to be one of those weirdos that get 3-4 and then have the audacity of actually play them?
Regardless of your choice, have fun!
^(And remember to check other sites that sell steam keys, like Humble Bundle (you have a list of retailers on) ^(gg.deals) ^(to have the chance of finding even better prices. You won't get steam points, though.))
Wait, don't buy anything right now unless it's at least 75% off or in a bundle. In less than three weeks there will be a major Steam sale, and a few weeks after the big end of the year sale.
Use sites like https://isthereanydeal.com/ and https://gg.deals/ to compare prices. All of the sites will be having sales.
according to this, HB never had a bundle with this game. Your culprit is either Fanatical (as known as Bundle Stars) Groupees, and Indiegala.
The Disney Afternoon Collection on Steam:
The Disney Afternoon Collection is five platformers and 1 side-scrolling shooter with Disney 90's cartoon themes and retro 2D graphics. Features Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers 1 & 2, DuckTales 1 & 2, Darkwing Duck, and TaleSpin NES games; new and improved visuals with filtering options that replicate a retro look and feel; new Boss Rush and Time Attack modes; a new "Rewind" feature providing a swift recovery from blunders; an in-game museum with a wealth of extras such as concept art and music; and a typical playtime of 5-7 hours.
Steam reviews suggest these games have great nostalgic platformer and shooter gameplay, especially for those fond of the 90's TV shows; retro graphics and sound; challenging difficulties, mitigated by the Rewind feature; some reports of frame-drops and slowdowns; nice, but simple bonus art and music content (no documentaries, etc.); and is often criticized for partial controller support with some reporting a minor input delay.
Deal isn't a historical low and was $6.34 from Green Man Gaming in April 2019 based on ITAD/GG.deals.
Probably worth considering for fans of classic 90's games, especially Disney fans.
It's not historic low price. I remember I bought it cheaper somewhere so I did a little research:
Also on GG there is an entry for this price: https://gg.deals/us/game/star-wars-knights-of-the-old-republic-ii/
Still, in my opinion this game is worth every price. KOTOR II is easily one of best Star Wars games ever made!
Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! on Steam:
Holy Potatoes! A Spy Story?! is a management sim game with a spy agency theme and cute 2D graphics. Features twins Ren and Rexa working to reveal the whole truth regarding the disappearance of their parents; management of a wacky spy agency where you train an elite spy team and strategize top-secret missions while uncovering the truth behind an evil spy corporation; encounter pop-culture legendary special-agent spuds; create new spies through genetic splicing; plan secret missions and heists; customize, enhance and upgrade your agency; build crazy gadgets, vehicles, facilities, and training stations; strategize to counter various mission obstacles; and a typical playtime of 10-12 hours.
Steam reviews suggest this game has humorous and addictive gameplay with many pop-culture references; a very satisfying progression system; cute graphics with fitting music; an interesting narrative with good writing that most enjoy; a fairly challenging difficulty; some frustrating timed gameplay; a few that find the core gameplay too tedious or repetitive; and is considered by most to be a strong entry in the Holy Potatoes! series.
Deal isn't quite a historical low and was $8.41 from GameBillet in March 2019 based on ITAD/GG.deals.
Probably worth considering for management game fans who enjoy the cute aesthetic and especially those who have enjoyed previous Holy Potatoes! games.
Road Redemption on Steam:
Road Redemption is an arcade motorcycle racing/combat game with a modern aesthetic and detailed 3D graphics. Spiritual successor to the game Road Rash from the early 90s. Features rogue-like progression; races, assassinations and robberies; numerous weapons; a deep fighting system; upgradable bikes, weapons, and characters with expandable skill trees; and a typical playtime of 8-10 hours.
Steam reviews suggest this game is fun in both solo and multi-player/co-op; has a fairly challenging difficulty and escalates quickly; gameplay focused somewhat more towards combat than racing; a Mad Max feel to the world; good graphics and sound; somewhat mixed opinion on its rogue-like elements; and is generally enjoyed as a successor to Road Rash.
Deal is essentially matches the historical low based on ITAD/GG.deals. Previously featured by Chrono.gg in February 2018 at $13.
Probably worth picking up for most Road Rash fans and those interested in motorcycle combat.
The Red Strings Club on Steam:
The Red Strings Club is a narrative adventure with cyberpunk setting and 2D pixel graphics. Features bar tending and pottery-like mini-games within mostly narrative-based gameplay; an OST by fingerspit (Gods Will Be Watching); and a typical playtime of 4-5 hours.
Steam reviews suggest this game has a very widely enjoyed branching story with enough game-like elements to separate it from being strictly a graphic novel; well written dialogue and interesting characters; beautiful cyberpunk/neo-noir pixel graphics and a great soundtrack; a very fitting soundtrack that most really enjoy; involves some social/political issues that not everyone will be interested in or agree with; and is criticized by a few for being somewhat short, lacking more in-depth gameplay elements, or who didn't enjoy the story/dialogue.
Deal price is a historical low based on ISAD/GG.deals. Previously featured by Chrono.gg in April 2018 at $10.
Strongly worth considering for cyberpunk narrative fans looking for short-but-sweet experience.
Headliner: NoviNews on Steam:
Headliner: NoviNews is a narrative adventure game with a news editor theme and colorful mixed graphics. Features gameplay based on deciding which articles to publish or not; a city that changes and responds to your media influence; a cast of believable characters with their own struggles; numerous outcomes and unique endings; enhance replay value with randomized events and articles; see a previous player's ending at the beginning of your play through; a typical run of ~2 hours, but easily warrants more than one.
Steam reviews suggest this game has engaging narrative-based gameplay that most enjoy; an world and character that responds interestingly based on your decisions; some that disagree with the outcomes of and/or reactions to certain choices; positive comparisons to Papers, Please; great replay value with lots of choices to make and outcomes to see; a generally high production value with good graphics and sound; and is mostly criticized for appearing somewhat bias towards certain issues and some control/UI quirks.
Deal matches the historical low based on ITAD/GG.deals.
Probably worth considering for fans of narrative adventures, especially those interested in modern social and political issues.
Here's a list of all AllYouPlay pricebugs https://gg.deals/eu/deals/?dealsDateFrom=2019-07-07&dealsDateTo=2019-07-07&onlyHistoricalLow=1&sort=title&store=52
Astonishing prices for:
- Age of Wonders: Planetfall Pre-Order (all 3 editions)
- Castlevania Anniversary Collection + Anniversary Collection Arcade Classics
- Hell Let Loose
- American Fugitive
- Super Lucky’s Tale
- Sunset Overdrive
- ReCore: Definitive Edition
- BATTLETECH – Season Pass
Also before sealing the deal on Steam, it's also not a bad idea to do a price comparison on other sites first. Some sites will sell Steam keys cheaper than steam.
And even Steam keys are always sold cheaper on 3rd parties than the game itself on Steam.
The lowest Monster Hunter World has been on Steam is $39.59: https://steamdb.info/app/582010/
If you look at gg.deals, however, we can see that ever since December 2018, the game has been down well below $39.59 multiple times (with the lowest being $31), while Steam still hasn't ever been down below $39.59 (even though there was a sale just in February for Steam): https://gg.deals/us/game/monster-hunter-world/
So, either those people who claim Steam enforce a similar price are lying or Steam actually don't care/bother enforcing it.
You can't download the Rev 2 update. You have to buy it in the store. If I were you, I'd buy the whole thing again, because a lot of times Rev1+Rev2 is cheaper than just the Rev 2 update alone. Look into these deals if you want to purchase it:
you can check gg.deals to see whether or not the games are actually at their historical lowest price so you get the best deals
red dead 2 is a really good long game, but it takes some patience because it starts off slow, a must if you're a rockstar fan and played (and enjoyed) their other games like la noire already
assassin's creed odyssey is another really long game, easily 50 hours so gotta make sure you're up for it and really love that style but for $5 it's the most bang for your buck here
jedi fallen order is great if you're a big star wars fan, it's like a more action-y dark souls if you like that style
i can't speak for the others but the three i mentioned get huge recommendations from me :)
Lost Castle on Steam:
Lost Castle is an RPG beat 'em up with a medieval fantasy setting and colorful 2D graphics. Features a castle and lands befallen by calamity, filled with demonic creatures and treasure for those with the courage to enter; 4-player online and local co-op; rogue-like elements with randomly generated dungeons, items, enemies and bosses; hardcore retro action inspired by classic beat 'em ups; hand-drawn characters and environments; 80+ items and 50+ potions with useful, dangerous or hilarious effects; 150+ weapons and 50+ armor sets; massive variety of skills and special attacks; and a typical playtime of 10-30 hours.
Steam reviews suggest this game has fun side scrolling beat 'em up action that's best with friends; a humorous tone and story that most enjoy; good graphics and sound; multi-player that cannot mix local and online players; mechanics that are easy to learn, but have enough depth to remain engaging; a slightly more challenging difficulty; and is mostly criticized by those who didn't care for the core gameplay.
Deal matches the historical low based on ITAD/GG.deals. Was included in the March 2018 Humble Monthly. Previously featured by Crono.gg in November 2016 at $7.
Probably worth considering for beat 'em up fans with friends to play co-op with.
Vanishing Realms may be kind of outdated now but at this price it’s worth considering. It’s a charming, short, Zelda-like game.
Also here’s the same list sorted by review score.
Just another PSA:
Before purchasing the game, check sites like gg.deals (I'd suggest with key shops disabled). There may be a better deal currently active, or by checking the price history graph, you might notice the price being even lower every winter sale etc.
Do not waste your money, especially if You do not want to play the game before you get your SD.
Few interesting games at historical lows: Witcher 3, Star Wars Squadron, Octopath Traveler and more. If you're tired of looking through the clunky EGS, here's a handy list:
Based on the past, I think the performance of the new Xbox will be equilivant to the $750 PC build here https://pcpartpicker.com/list/P4Vcsk. The consoles in the past sold at a loss, but the games are expensive. For PC gaming, the entry price is higher, but the cost of games will be significantly lower (gg.deals for reference)
the choice ultimately is up to you. If most of your friends will go Xbox, if you never want to troubleshoot, and/or you're really comfortable with consoles; maybe you should stick with consoles. If not, PC gaming offers the console experience plus much more.
Creepy Road on Steam:
Creepy Road is a side-scrolling shoot-em-up game with a modern grotesque theme and cartoon 2D graphics. Features beautiful hand-drawn graphics; lots of crazy weapons; 30+ enemies; huge bosses; 15+ music tracks; and 3-7 hours length depending on which of 3 difficulty levels chosen.
Steam reviews suggest this game has simple, but fun shoot-em-up gameplay; very nice graphics, animation and sound; a unique style and humor; interesting and grotesque enemies and settings; a good variety of weapons and items; an enjoyable story that most enjoy; some minor bugs and general rough edges; and is mostly criticized for overly simple gameplay that lacks depth.
Deal is a historical low based on ITAD/GG.deals. Previously featured by Chrono.gg in June 2018 at $7.50.
Possibly worth considering for shoot-em-up fans and that like the game's art style.
But those games were pulled from Steam and locked to Epic's platform, so that rule shouldn't apply.
And even then, Steam keys are always sold cheaper on 3rd parties than the game itself on Steam.
For example: The lowest Monster Hunter World has been on Steam is $39.59: https://steamdb.info/app/582010/
So I very much doubt Steam even enforce that rule.
It's first tuesday every month & has been that way for quite some time now
Humble said they are changing from friday to tuesday for months before the change
3 days 22 hours 43 minutes & counting down
It was a limited time offer that expired more than a year ago.
GG Deals says it was $4, 2 years ago on Humble.
I like both isthereanydeal and ggdeals, but have been using ggdeals more lately because it's just easier for me to navigate and such.
Is there a chance this is some sort of mistake though?
There is a better code. BlackFriday 30% off of almost everything in the store.
I just grabbed Call of the Wild for 6,99€. Yakuza-0 is 9,37€. Lots of other great deals.
Witch it is 6,92€ an all time low aswell.
Both Megaman Legacy Collections are also all time lows.
The very fact the commenter claimed G2A are legit should tell you that they are full of shit and CDkeys are also not legit.
Both are grey market. Please have a read https://www.reddit.com/r/gamedeals/comments/2yhlw4/_/ to learn what this means.
If the site is not on that subreddit, https://isthereanydeal.com or https://gg.deals, it's grey market.
If a company is willing to rip off other people, they're willing to rip off you. There's a reason why G2A push their insurance bullshit so heavily. There's a reason why theres thousands of posts on Reddit complaining about being fucked over by these companies.
> BioShock: The Collection
Interesting to see GMG on this list. It's actually cheaper on 2Game right now though
I suspect we are able to find better deals for at least a couple of the other games listed as well so for anyone interested in the best deal for a particular game it's better to check out a real price tracker.
These are the ones I mainly use
If you purchased it already, you can download some of the games
best way to do so is with this list, not all games are downloadable though.
Already downloading a few games whilst i wait for e3
To celebrate the 20th anniversary of Rayman 2 game, Ubisoft will host a special speedrun event at this year's E3. During the event, Glackum (speedrunner, currently placed 2nd) will try to overcome the player who hold the best time at Speedrun.com website.
Every player who watches the run live will receive a free copy of Rayman Origins for Uplay. To be eligible to get your game, you need to:
The Rayman 2 speedrun event will start 10 June, 17:30 UTC.
It's been lower recently (and often) but it's a good enough price if you want to play now.
If you intend to play both, then you should definitely start with Replicant.
As for the cheapest way...Steam Winter/Christmas Sale should start on December 22nd, cheapest Automata has ever been is 19.99(50% off), and Replicant 39.99(35% off), but there's no guarantee they'll be on sale and that it'll be at these prices(although Automata usually goes on sale 3 times each year, and this year it's only been on sale 2 times so far).
Alternatively, Automata occasionally goes on sale for about half the price on some trusted(read: low risks, but never 0) key sites(check gg.deals).
Do no pirate either, especially Automata, one important feature that is required to get the ending in the intended way requires the game to be able to connect to the network, which can't be done on pirated copies(there's alternative ways to pass the section without internet connection, but none will give the full extent of the ending, as it's only achievable through the mechanic that requires internet connection).
Right, but you didn't get the 'Collection' with War of the Chosen for that price though. The cheapest that's been has been $14.99 according to GG.deals and ITAD.
That's why I use gg.deals, never had any issues. Way easier to navigate and more sorting options, more stores and keyshops (which are optional). You can easily switch between game editions and see if the game's already in some subsription based library, which itad lacks. I don't think I'll be switching even after the rework.
> Check this out to browse the deals. You can change the filters to your liking if you want, but this setting should show most of the relevant deals.
As a PC gamer, I am thankful for an all digital library. I would hate to have over a 1000 games littered around my room. I struggle for space with 200 DVDs.
But I loath the idea of a single store eco system. Buying games from key sellers is by far the cheapest way to buy and play games(https://gg.deals or https://isthereanydeal.com).
Single store sucks, and stifles all competition for your money, which means higher prices.
Hopefully Sony doesn't stick to this going forward.
You can't buy it from an official store.
But, you can choose a site from one of the key shops here and get as little a risk as possible. https://gg.deals/game/mortal-kombat-komplete-edition/
I personally would avoid a "Steam Gift" style purchase. But honestly, if they no longer want you money by selling it, it doesn't really matter where you get it from any more.
Also make sure to pay with PayPal or a Credit Card, just in case something does go wrong, so that you can raise the issue with them if the store doesn't actually help you.
They still have the originals on steam, they're probably on Origin as well (yeah boiii I got ME2 free On The House) and other places but this is one of those cases where I say fuck Bioware, fuck EA, yarr harr.
It's been lower, but this is the lowest its been recently.
Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior on Steam:
Cybarian: The Time Travelling Warrior is an action platformer with a sci-fi theme and retro 2D graphics. Features a barbarian traveling through time in the future to stop an evil threat; classical inspiration with a mixture of modern and retro gaming tropes; an amalgamation of old school 2d platformers and side scrolling beat 'em ups; retro-styled pixel art; epic boss battles; explosive and engaging combat; classic platforming; and a typical playtime of 1-3 hours.
Steam reviews suggest this game has good platforming with beat 'em up gameplay; a challenging difficulty; great pixel graphics and sound; a sparse checkpoint system; easy to learn controls that some found too simple, but expands as bosses are defeated; and is mostly criticized for being too short and/or difficult.
Deal is a historical low based on ITAD/GG.deals.
Probably worth considering for fans of action platformers looking for a short challenge.
I'll probably still buy the dlc but will not make the same mistake again and buy it after a month or so, when it will be 1/3 the price on steam.
~3 eur in 1.5 month. Never going to buy dlc on release again
There are many ways to 'advertise' a game. If you think solely on "hey buy ads and sponsor influencers" is the only form of advertisement is foul.
If I was DECA, I would pursue steps in building and maintaining the community.
This is what I came up with in under 10 minutes while writing this and with the team in DECA, they definitely can come up with much more ideas to promote the game.
It still exists: SteamDB. This is only for the Steam store itself.
There are also sites like IsThereAnyDeal and GG.Deals that also track prices for key stores in addition to the Steam store.
I have a little protip for you. You go on gg.deals, take a list of games under 10 bucks and sort by popularity. Now you can pick and choose whatever you like, maybe you'll find something interesting. Here:
From the games you mentioned I'd say Valheim. It's really fun, especially with friends. Just be wary of difficulty spikes.
Guys head on over to site like
gg.deals or isthereanydeal.com
and check over there.
But it doesn't look too promising. Lot of other sites have much stronger discounts.
gg.deals has the cheapest currently at 13 euro. And last time i checked, 13 euro is more than 0. even at 5 bucks, thats a still a steep paywall to get behind after several bans. it stacks up quickly
Did you check third party vendors? https://gg.deals/ch/game/bloodstained-ritual-of-the-night/ has a few listed. Maybe one of them will give you a fair regional price?
In my case, something like voidu would have come out 40% cheaper than Steam.
The Witcher: Enhanced Edition Director's Cut 1.39$
The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings Enhanced Edition 2.99$
You can't get them anywhere apart from Origin. The rest are just dodgy keyshops. I recommend creating price alerts on gg.deals . It's a price comparison website for pc games. So far they work only with the official and credible game stores. You can create the price alerts for all the Sims 4 packs and when the prices drop, you'll get instantly notified.
check out the gg.deals website for the humble store. A good amount of historic lows. Here is a link straight to the store page in gg
Keep this link on your chrome shortcut (the blank page you get when you press new tab button) or make it your home page. Never miss any free deal ever again.
You can check for cheaper prices on this website:
You can get it for $6 on Kinguin, but if you scroll down there is a graph with price history and you will see it goes on sale very, very often. So buying it at full price isn't really a good idea, unless of course you want to support the creators - SCS Software. But in such case, I would look into other stores (maybe Humble Store), because Steam takes a huge piece of the money, like 30%, while Humble onle 10% (I could be wrong, check yourself).
Guilty Gear is an incredible fighting game.
It has a couple issues. The connection when communicating with their log in server is atrocious. Can be a good 3 or 4 minutes when starting the game.
There was a couple bugs to do with the PC version when it came to 4K(or close too) resolutions that cause huge slowdown, or a setting that if it was on anything but Ultra is was a blurry mess.
How ever, there is so much to like about the game. It looks fantastic, and the music is sublime. The combat has been "slimmed" down, but with the high meter gain and the versatility of Roman Cancels, there is a lot that can be done with the characters.
The ranked tower is great fun to climb, and it is satisfying when you get VIP status on the celestial floor. It also allows you to challenge any floor above(upto floor 10) if you wanted to.
In terms of player base, it is very much alive and well. Plus with the roll back netcode, it is not reliant on having a huge player base locally.
You can also save a bit of money if you check out gg.deals or CDKeys.
Use gg.deals or another storefront aggregate instead.
Honestly, Steam has patched up most of the holes in their library nowadays and the main thing about it is that you're almost always overpaying if you buy from Steam directly.
There are some, though they're mostly F2P live service games that avoid steam to get more of their microtransactions revenue, especially since their popularity grows over time, so it's not as important to get a lot of customers exposed to the product on release day as it is with other types of games:
Rogue Company - decent
World of Tanks/Warships
League of Legends
World of Warcraft,
Another thing are Ubisoft games, which only release on Epic nowadays. AC Valhalla, GR Breakpoint, Trackmania 2020 and others are only on uPlay and, in terms of real store fronts, the Epic Games Store. I think EA also used to avoid Steam whenever they could, but either I'm misremembering or they have given up now.
Adding to this, there's websites which track the price history - the one I use is gg.deals - they give you an idea as to how often a game goes on sale (usually about once a month) and what price it goes down to.
If you're not fussed about being completely free of a PC (and you actually get a good connection with Airlink/VD), I'd wait.
You can often get it cheaper than this for Steam, and you won't be tied to Facebook with its relatively crap prices.
Just dodgy steam gift ones for sale. Which strangely they are trying to charge more for than the game costs on steam. I must have missed that class in economics.
Are you familiar with GG.deals? It lists all the deals and rates them and you can see if a price is a historical low, etc. I think it would be helpful for you as well since I use it for a while now. Check it out here.
it was likely just a mistake? as in they didnt want it that low. you can try using deal aggregation sites like gg.deals to see if there are any better ones out there
Maybe somebody could explain this to me
As far as I know - that game is still free for every1 on egs
Yup just checked
Why would anybody use his link?
So he gets some ad revenue?
For a game that is free?!?
I mean,I would understand if the game he is promoting is not already free,but if you use his link you could get it for free,but this???
The only thing that keeps me from always using GG.deals instead of ITAD is the lack of price history for each separate store. Especially useful if you want to buy a game on GOG and want to know its evolution/historical low. But other than that, GG.deals is great and I have all my alerts there.
Also, google "Free games reddit" and sub to all of those, tons of free games are given away all the time, even Triple A titles from time to time.
Rule 1 of being a value savvy pc gamer is not shopping for PC games on Steam unless there is a sale going on.
/r/Gamedeals or https://gg.deals and https://isthereanydeal.com are where you go for finding deals.
To answer your question. Epic is currently having a big sale. Steam's hasn't started yet.
Absolutely, game's way better than it was few years ago and it's constantly receiving improvements.
PS: if you can't spend too much, buy it on sale. Check this price tracker :https://gg.deals/games/?title=grim+dawn
Setup an account on https://isthereanydeal.com you can even import your steam wishlist, you can add games you're interested in and tell it to e-mail you when there's a discount, you can even set how deep a discount to let you know about.
Make a point if you're on reddit of looking in on /r/GameDeals they catch a lot of stuff as well.
And a relatively new one for me is https://gg.deals/ which is similar to isthereanydeal.com .
Hope this helps.
That only applies to keys, and even then I don't think Steam actually enforce it.
Never heared of humble bundle? There are like 5-6 sites that offer bundles of games for 2-3€. It's already worth it if one of those games look interesting.
I also have 150 on epic just by getting the free ones. It's seriously not that hard or expensive to get a massive game library.
Activision pulled out of 3rd party stores and chose to sell only on their client, might explain the drop in sales.
3rd party stores usually offer 10-20% discount on new releases which could impact sales as not everyone wants to spend £50 on a new game.
Every month on different key sellers including steam have ca. -75% discount. 2 weeks ago indiegames had it at -80%. So as Black Friday is coming you will get another try for sure somewhere just search for it :)
Unfortunately epic halloween sales is over, but you can still get the coupon and use it
Vessels may look small, but in fact the ratio Have/Want on Barter and the current value on GG.deals gives it value.
But the games i saw in your list were already games i wasn't sure i'd play one day, so i can't find anything else anyway.
I would avoid purchasing games outside of the Steam Store at all costs. You can check GG.deals which shows official key resellers and key shops that can maybe fetch you a lower price.
Thanks for the rundown of all the content. Definitely a ton of good stuff and IMO well worth it
But to the point where you mention the premium expansion pack, this particular pack has never been on sale, previously, since its launch on June 9. Even when the game and season pass were, this wasn't. (Trust me, I've kept a close eye on it)
https://gg.deals/dlc/automobilista-2-premium-expansion-packs/ and click price history.
It has gone on sale for $50-$55 every month for the past several months. Dunno for sure if it'll be on sale for Halloween specifically, but it should be due for a sale pretty much any day now. Here's a good site to track it for both Steam sales and also on other sites that sell Steam keys for it.
It didn't go on much of a discount last Halloween, but MZ was pretty much brand new at that point, so that's not really surprising. It should be cheaper this time around.
Hi! Just letting you know that this game is expensive so I will pick a couple of games based on their total gray market value. You can look them up on (https://gg.deals/us/)
Civ VI Platinum - total value of $12.57
What I want - total value of $12.38
Shenmue III - 2.05
Dirt 4 - 1.91
ENSLAVED™: Odyssey to the West™ Premium Edition - 1.43
Tekken 7 - 5.53
Röki - 1.46
Let me know if that works for you
Both the regular version and deluxe version have been getting 75% discounts during most(but not all) of steam's sales over the last few years.
You can also use gg.deals to track discounts from from other official stores that sell steam keys. They have it on sale more often than steam does, and you're still buying the steam version with them. Just stick to official stores and not "keyshops"
yes. everything will work properly. you can check https://gg.deals/pack/the-elder-scrolls-v-skyrim-legendary-edition/ to find both legal shops and cd keys resellers.
I would personally advise to get the special edition though, unless your pc can only run the old version. SE runs better, is more stable, easier to get running (LE requires a lot of tweaking) and also more supported. I say this as a long time LE player.
No,you cant get a key from a legit shop cause ONLY steam sells that DLC & they dont give keys
Somebody would have to gift you that game DLC through Steam itself
But if you are OK with getting a key from a keyshop,then somebody could give you a key,but keyshops are a separate can of worms,but if you are OK with that...
But dont look at me,I stay away from keyshop shite as far as I can
OK, so how about this:
- Cuphead (€16)
- Hollow Knight (€10)
- Blashphemous (€6)
- UnderRail (€7)
- Mutant Year Zero - Road to Eden (€8)
- Downwell (€2)
- Return of Obra Dinn (€17)
That totals a value of €66 as checked on gg.deals, where Transformers Devastation is valued at €78, would that be fair?
It should be a global key but worst case scenario it might be an EU key.
The current value of your game should be about 80% of this. Hope this helps evaluating your trade.
It went as low as £10 before and that's the price I would pay for it, honestly. Some people already stated what issues this game has so I won't be repeating the same things. It's not completely bad though. I'd just recommend watching this link and get it when it's cheaper:
Still waiting for a sale to get my hands on it. It was for $5 before according to gg.deals
Might get it before, I'm getting impatient. Especially after reading this post.
So instead of presenting them options and ideally educating them (because they can stumble onto key shop easily just by using google "game xyz for steam cheap"), you would rather confine them to one site?
The ITAD is good, but I must say the gg.deals has a more modern and more intuitive user interface, which is quite important to have specifically for those people.
The easier it is for them to find the deal and compare the prices etc. the better. So I would just maybe point them to https://gg.deals/page/keyshops-risks/ to educate them and let them make their own decision. This way, if they decide the key shops are bad (which isn't universally true), they will actively avoid them, instead of not knowing about them and potentially still getting scammed.
Maybe not on Steam directly, but it does all the time in official key shops. The lowest price was $29.99 during the Steam summer sale.
If you want to play on the Deck, hold off for the Steam Winter sale, it's not like you'll have a Deck before then. So why spend a lot for things you won't play for several months that aren't on sale.
I just saw a deal where Skyrim and FO4 were on sale for $20 combined but it looks like you juuuuuuuuust missed it.
With respect to Special Edition, if you owned the original you SHOULD get the special for free (I did, as did everyone I know). If not, then yeah it's worth buying because it's way way way more stable than 32-bit, and all the mods developed today are for Special.
The game's amazing. It perfectly portrays the 90s Cracow and it's very athmospheric. It's visually stunning and the story is quite interesting too. It's short, about 8h, but to be fair it's a nice breath of fresh air among all the 50h+ games. It's not very scary and there's not a lot of jumpscares, it's just eerily satisfying to play through and unveil the mystery. It has a sort of open ending, so I'm really hoping for a continuation or another game with the same concept of controlling the character in 2 worlds at the same time.
As for Bloober I wouldn't recommend their previous works, Layers of Fear in particular. I mean, it's a very polished game, but all looks no substance. Although Blair Witch is pretty good too.
That being said I wouldn't pay the full $50 for it, but it occasionally goes on sales and is available in Xbox Game Pass too.
https://gg.deals/game/the-medium/ you can look for the lower prices here.
Taking a look at gg.deals for the first time, it does seem to have a nicer interface than isthereanydeal. I've been using an extension (augmented steam or isthereanydeal anywhere) so I can browse through steam (on the web) itself and see deals that way. I took a look but didn't see any similar extension for gg.deals, unless you know otherwise?
I haven't played the game so I won't comment on that aspect of things, but generally I would wait with the F1 games. They generally become cheaper after just 2-4 weeks of release. You can check out F1 2020, F1 2019, and F1 2018's price history at the bottom of this page (be sure to change to "All" on the price history).
The stores are legit, no need to worry here, but I'd check on gg.deals too since they have more stores in their offer. As you can see all the stores sell a Steam key. All you gotta do is redeem it on Steam like a normal game then download it and you're good to go.
mmmh I'll be wary
Don't really trust random seller on ebay
But if you want to check where to buy cheapest I usually go there :
It's just to compare price between platform
Still need to be careful on what is the platform you want to buy and what do they propose, sometimes there is some region locked.
Just get both, they're great. They are currently at 80%-85% off at Greenmangaming or even cheaper in keyshops if you don't mind them. Here:
gg.deals is the best site for price comparison and history.
way more user friendly than than steamdb and will also let you compare across all online retailers (not just steam) and even keyshops (if you hate devs)
