    No worries, Aug 2-5 is the Quakecon that Kurgan mentioned, with each day featuring a different deal, along with a constant 25% off:
    And...
    Can't say 100%, for every game I bought off getgamesgo, I made sure was Steam activate-able.

    But if you read the FAQ, it looks like after purchase, the game is available in your account with the activation code and download links.
    If it's like the Arkham City that came with my ssd, it will point to where you can download the game, and then you can install, probably using a GFWL account.

    :toast: Wow, Steam has a "Quakecon Bundle" that has a ton of titles! If I didn't have most of these already it would be a crazy awesome bundle to jump on.

    $99.99 for this entire bundle.

    Not the best game in the world (what is? :roll:) but I'd highly recommend it. I've probably beat it 5-6 times...lots of replayability.

    Good deal, do not forget to respect the scripts though.
    If you are in a faction war with the bandits while fighting for the S.T.A.L.K.E.R.s, make sure you act as part of the faction's movements. If the conflict grinds to a stalemate and lack of S.T.A.L.K.E.R. initiative starts to become a problem, do not go and fight the bandits alone (like I did) but go one or a few savegames back and try to reach the faction achievements with the group. Else you will get stuck at one of the story objectives (related to a guy called Fang).
    This bug could also be Complete mod related though, but because I am not sure I thought like let's warn.

    On a sidenote, it is funny how one of the user reviews on that page states one could not repair guns and armor in the first game (Shad. of Chernobyl) but at least with the Complete mod one can (seems weird to me that the repairmen at the bar/Freedom base are not there in the vanilla game).

    There we go for those interested.

    Personally, I did like the game. It was pretty linear but the gameplay was fun. According to Steam, beat it in under 8 hours (longer than CoD but not long)

    The multi is hard. I played a few minutes in 2 matches, never got a kill. As you can expect, a whole lot of camping and sniping lol.

    I snagged it for $15 on Amazon and I think that was a decent deal.

    Halloween sale and then usually something during thanksgiving. Neither are as big as the summer sale or Christmas sale, but last year they had a great sale on all the zombie, horror, scary etc games during Halloween.

    I have four games bought from Gamefly this year, they have excellent deals, nice and functional client, you're not required to run it in the background, fast downloads. Steam is getting more and more competition.

    Just found out on greenmangaming Fear 3 is on sale, 24h deal[​IMG]:

    Agreed, I've snagged several from gamefly and gmg.
    That's so lame, GMG won't let me buy FEAR3 because I bought one a while back, stupid. It activates on Steam, and it's only $3.84!

    GetGamesGo has Darksiders II preorder for only $37.99, Sleeping Dogs Digital Edition preorder for $37.49, and Sniper Elite v2 for $17.99 :)

    Fear 3 was not NEARLY the thriller 1 and 2 were :(
    Honestly, I'd rather play LFD2....
